New Covenant 02:59
Where, where did we go? Disappointed but we can’t pretend that we had no warning Finished, with nothing to show but Satisfaction in the miscarriage of the poor performing What would you know? Where did we, where did we go? What will we say, to those who came before us And those who'll follow Don’t look back, deny the ones that we held close Be still and know that they’re the ones who love you most Who love you most

Companion A passenger in the back seat Fingertips brush your eyelids A gift from the past is no present When you’re sitting on your hands Oh if you’re so tired why can’t you sleep at night? Oh if you’re so lonely why is your jaw so tight? Oh if you’re so afraid then why can’t you turn on the fucking light? Turn it on Turn on the light Turn it on Now i’m so illuminated If you’re so bright, how don’t you know, how don’t you know? A gift from the past is presentation Affection is an affectation

Secretspace 02:46
Born in a house Made of broken bone Deep in the foundations Grow flowers between stone This is for you and your shame Please tell me was it fear that kept you here or was it just commiseration? Divided by our pain We are the sum of our mistakes Stolen days, i’ll die as a debtor Never good enough but you couldn’t do any better Cold and careless I swear i felt it once Old but endless I live a life unloved I swear i felt it once
4.
Never again, never, never again Am i buried in the black of a name How can you say this is punishment for my crimes? How can i justify Waiting for the feeling Pinned down by your expectation Sacrificing being Myself a little more Watch you disappearing Wanting you to take me with you Smile if you can hear me say i Wasted it all on you (Time slowly betrays And now i take what i’m owed) Time slowly betrays, it betrays every one of us And now i take what i’m owed, now i take what i'm owed Oh god it feels like so long ago Time slowly betrays, has nobody told you, has nobody told you? I never did enough and now it’s time To make me part with yours and mine Never again, never, never again Am i buried in the black of a name How can you say this is punishment for my crimes? Oh god i’ve wasted it all on you Oh god i’ve wasted It all on you

Clear the air I try to stay awake So i know what i missed Suspended in Exhaustion that sleep can’t fix Nights are getting longer But light creeps through the cracks Remembering Hearing everything i lack I lost my left hand to the right Everything that was right left me again Nothing you say moves me Alpha waves and centuries Years and years of feeding your Dependance on vocabulary Only when i’m sleeping Does it sound like leaving? Exiting the one way in I know you find meaning in Verbalising the verboten Only when i’m sleeping Does it sound like leaving? I made sound But what do you have to say now? Clear the air (Nothing you say moves me You’re not what you said you’d be)

CLSR 03:43
The closer i get to you the Farther You are You’ve been running for so long do you Remember What from? It’s not like us to commit to a Formal Submission The closer i get to you the farther away you go The pavements overflowed When they knew we were trying to get home You are the raindrops on the glaze But i don’t cry much these days You are the mist before the dawn But i don’t wake up early anymore Closer Get closer The pavements overflowed We held our hands up high Reconstituted safety For those you left behind The closer i get Closer
8.
The dust gets heavier I’m digging for treasure One foot in the grave is Worth two in the nether Cut the rose at the hilt Bludgeon all that we built Your time’s running out And the birds fly the field The birds fly the field They’ll get you in the end But i’m not here to make friends I’m not here to make friends Dead leaves are cut to make room I’m not here to make friends The weak survived by the few
9.
Gilt 03:03
I am not what you had I am not what i am You tried but now you’re on your own Nothing can stop me coming home You find a light so bright it blinds you Remain unconscious to the sound So glad it turned out to be mutually beneficial We put each other in the ground Sever connections, cut that thread Stand up and leave the dying to the dead You tried, you’re on your own Nothing stops me Coming home Nothing Nothing stops me You tried but now you’re on your own Nothing can stop me coming home So glad it turned out to be mutually beneficial We put each other in the ground In the ground In the Ground
10.
Better Abuse 05:25
And now i find myself nailed to the floor Cover my eyes Shield me from the walls I just wanted to say It's not the end unless you leave it this way I've seen what happens in the rain The cold and grey The insignificant And when i turn to face the day Is this letting go Is this fading away...
