Track Name: Test
Keeping so still; oh I wonder what time will bring to us now?
My eyes are focused on the sky
And there was something in your face then; oh, I know its time
There was something in the way
Something in the way

You were always a test to the sirens
In reverie I sing unto the sky
If I were just a silent profit; keeping my ears so steady on the ground

But there was something out there
And I couldn't see it for days
Couldn't make it right
But I'll fight
Track Name: Catharsis
I thought I had it all, I thought I had it all
figured out; a futile demonstration of
What it took to be, what it took to be
Satisfied with mediocre situations
But now I see it all; Its not so easy to be
satisfied with alternating emotions
Like “up” and “down” or “down” and “out”
or “round and round”; not so good now

Caught in the wake of where I should belong and where I’m gonna go
Do you still believe that I’ll be fine?

I thought I had it all, turns out all “it” was were
Imaginary walls that I would set up
To protect myself from all of the things that I would do to ruin this
Well tell me when you dream, what are you dreaming of?
Is there something your subconscious isn't telling you?
Well you know, nothings unfathomable in your head

Caught in the wake of where I should belong and where I’m gonna go
Do you still believe that I’ll be fine?
Waiting for signs to show me what I’ve done and how I’m gonna get there
Hope for something more

Well all this talk has gotten me so tired I think that I will sleep it off forever
No, all this talk is cheap. Why wont you just let me decide what would be better?
I watch the whole thing start to slip away and now I know its gonna take forever
And I dont know where to turn

Caught in the wake of where I should belong and where I’m gonna go
Do you still believe that I’ll be fine?
Waiting for signs to show me what I’ve done and how I’m gonna get there
Do you understand this time?
Track Name: Corners Of My Room
I was a wall that you couldnt climb
Try as you might you cant see behind
me or the things I’d do to ward you off

You were a mountain I would traverse
Finding myself lost in you, I’d curse
And when I came down I’d never go back m

Fickle and possibly at best
In the corners of my room, I’d watch you undress
Chasing the glow of the light hit your spine

Shaking and coarse were my two hands
Knowing I’d never touch your skin
Timing only allows for a second glance

There was a sickening turning
In my stomach as I fell asleep
Waiting to hear your soft songs but not hearing a thing

How could you know x2
How could you know that this is what I wanted?
And
How could you know x2
How could you know that this is what I fantasised before it started?
Track Name: Shake It Off
Wake up every morn put on my shoes and out the door
Feel like I’ve lived the same day many times before
and I wish that I could break from this routine
A lifeless sense of draining

You gotta shake it off, dust off the cobwebs now
cause everyone falls before they get back up
You gotta lose it all before you realize
That nothing in this life comes without sacrifice

And I’ve been there so many god damn times before I
Forgotten what we're even fighting for

But I see a way to improve
No, I see a change in you

You gotta shake it off, dust off the cobwebs now
cause everyone falls before they get back up
You gotta lose it all before you realize
That nothing in this life comes without a price
Track Name: Won't
Sinner, wont you give it a rest?
The kind of thoughts you've been inviting
Well, they're terrible at best
And if you wanted to be so pure
You should've given up this shit and moved away to something more

But no, you dont (x4)

My tired body wants to rest
But before we can do that, there's just one more little test
So I can get my head on straight
With all these pills and alcohol so I can fucking concentrate

But man, I wont (x4)

Goddamn, wont you give it a rest?
When you push your body closer to me do you think that I'm impressed?
I cant believe it ended this way
So now I'll toss and turn each night, wondering if you'll really stay

But I should know better now; I should know that you won't
Because 'love' is just a verb and so is 'trying' and we both know that you wont

Was there something that you'd say
To make me feel better about this today??
Track Name: Either Way
Forcin’ through the fire, flying high
Or deep into the ocean water on all sides
Either way, you’ll know
And Either way you’ll go

Well I thought it would be everything
To be a Messiah; a God; a king
but either way I know
and either way I’ll go

Well that was something
To give it all and in return show nothin
But either way I’ll know
Cause my god never shows

Force down a feeling i dont wanna feel
exhale new meaning and find some new appeal
cause either way i know
and either way ill go

I thought the righteous way would set me free
But in this life theres no room for messiahs, no room for gods and no room for kings
Track Name: The Great Flood
There was a calm, before the flood came
Swallowed our cities whole. Kept me wondering
What was our fate?

Yours is a face I cannot remember in all of those city lights
as they fade away in hues red and gold

But this serves me well, in my own hell
I sit and wonder what was our fate?
Holding still, I’m at your will
Do what you want, cause I know you’ll do it either way

Cause you have the say now, keeping my body here
Holding what guilt I dare not mention
A kiss on the brow, to wake me in mourning
Figuring out that all of this was a game, and you’d soon fade away

But you knew too well, now I’m in hell
Hoping for signs to get me out
God of me, wont you see?
Everything that we sever will surely bring us all to an end
We are, we are just falling apart
In the room where you would bleed out my swollen heart
We are, we are just falling apart
In the place where I forgot myself and I cant start.
