Track Name: Craniopagi
I don’t know if I can say it
You should never go that far
You're always leaving me with nothing else but
Pardons for goodbyes

We had to settle on a trigger
But are you really that refined?
You only come out for all the scenes
and then steal my lines

I only see numbers
I know the names of forgotten colors
I only see numbers
I know the names of forgotten lovers

You never forget
You never forget
You never forget
You never forget

I want to know if I can stay here
You sit often in the bars
We needed fortunes to discard that singer
Folly in your eyes

We had to settle on a trigger
But is that really such a crime
You only came out for all the scenes
and then took my lines

I only see numbers
I know the names of forgotten colors
I only see numbers
I know the names of forgotten lovers

You never forget
You never forget
You never forget
You never forget
Track Name: Syren
Please don’t laugh at my crazy stutter
Please don’t let my lungs fail me now
Holding up the skies
Sing like paradise
Codify my hands in your eyes
You can find my sign in a forest
Swing low sweetest foal, let me go
Follow lines we write
Sing of better times
Hope you find the way to the sound

She’s like a siren in disguise
Holding on to all of your cries
She’s like a fire in the sky
Blowing up too bright for your eyes

She called off the search in a blizzard
Lights from cigarettes in their mouths
But you find my cries
Far from paradise
Broken signs of life in the dark
Make it stop, don’t sing for another
Make me feel like when we were young
Hold my head, sing twice
Sing of better times
Cause we’re not going out like this
Track Name: I Miss You
Why did you come to me?
And then leave so easily?
Say you’ll love me forever and I’ll love you just the same.
And then you close my eyes,
You know how to make it right.
Say you’ll right those wrongs.
And break your promises again.
Again.

Why did you make a scene?
You don’t hit so gently.
Said I’d never surrender till your head floats down a river.
And then you cut me nice,
You would sing me lullabies.
Sing it one more time.
I won’t forget because I’m yours.
Always.

I miss you.
I miss you.
It’s not the same without you.
I miss you.
I miss you.
I can’t go on without you.

You break something in me,
I don’t give up easily.
So the blood of your lovers cannot stay underneath your covers.
That’s why you hold them high,
I’m not even gonna try.
Try this one more time.
You look at me and then I’m yours.
Again.

I miss you.
I miss you.
It’s not the same without you.
I miss you.
I miss you.
I can’t go on without you.
Track Name: Modernism
Make sure they see us together breathing a sigh of
Disbelief in all those that won’t conjure up the time
I thought I said I’d never let you out alive, I lied
See if they ever nod at a fraud’s designs

Deaf pause that seems like forever, shouting an aye, but
I’ve seen enough of all this to make sure I’m on their side
I said I needed to make out the worth of life, besides
I know they’ll believe anything that I might ever sign

Shake down the one you want to love is right inside
Shake down the one you want to love is on the right,
Behind the line

Make sounds and string them together, safely polite or
I’ll splatter all of my blood on a wall, for the love of all your eyes
Just keep me in your hearts, if only recognize, no lies
I only want to be wanted in all your lives

Take more of these I’ll back to see if you’re alright, cause
You’ve got everything that you need in a bright new life
Track Name: Glass Camp
It started slowly, coming out,
A scab inside my throat, started falling off,
I shoved away for a moment,
Coughing down in my sleeve, blurry eyed,
My brother came around, then he would say

I'm stealing what you would throw away,
your father and your mother (x 4)
(He wanted everything, You wanted something clean
I want him off my back, he wanted everything,
He took my land instead, I want him off my back,
I saw him in my stash, he wanted everything)

I'm sorry for the love you found
The stab inside the throat, started dozing off,
You fade away in a moment,
Coughing down in your sleeve, blurry eyed,
My brother came around, then he would say

I'm stealing what you would throw away,
your father and your mother (x 4)
(He wanted everything, You wanted something clean
I want him off my back, he wanted everything,
He took my land instead, I want him off my back,
I saw him in my stash, he wanted everything)
Track Name: To You and Your Members
I wish it was the morning we woke up together
the smell of your neck I could’ve laid there forever
and you’d laugh and I’d smile
It seems I got in the way of the plans they have made
or are you lying to my face?
or someday will that change?
You can laugh, cause I’m a fool.
These questions I have asked
In the dark of my home
at the end of the hall is where I hung my soul
You better turn around
cause I’m bleeding

And Bleed

You pushed me the door and I came back for more
I tried to make things right, but ended up in the way
in the way, in the way,
Sacrifice, I’m sick of it
Why cannot love work out the way it does for them
some day, it’s supposed to, it’ supposed to,…
So I’ll sit back in my room
hope that things work out for you
And everything that you do
cause life can be so cruel
look at us

And Bleed
