I take back what I said I’m not ready to give in To wishful thinking I might be the one to place All my eggs into one basket But it still feels like my best bet You've gotten so good At being right from the start I wish I could be fooled By colours we choose to use To draw inside thick contours Today feels different An all-new kind of effort What happens with flat words Now that we’ve entered A space where intent comes first I know your words are beautiful but I don’t need to hear them now Sounds flowing down in waterfalls This is just for show This is just a bluff This is nothing personal Let the tension grow ’Til I’m brave enough To trust those words will bring me back somehow What’s left of the ancient wisdom We thought unfit for us We’re yielding under pressure And I’m still waiting for more I wish I could ease your mind And see with a different light Are we both part of the plan? Isn’t it more of the same? Let’s start with the things we know Oh, we’ve been here before Drink it hot, drink it cold There’s so much you can’t control Maybe there’s nothing to it There’s nothing personal I know your words are beautiful but I don’t need to hear them now This is just for show This is just a bluff This is nothing personal Let the tension grow ’Til I’m brave enough To trust those words will bring me back somehow

Distractions 03:50
Ask me where it hurts, oh I’m not so sure But can being all rational make up For when I’m feeling lost? There’s a rumour spreading through My body as I move further from the truth It’s all logic and pretend If I find no way to mend I don’t know then Fall into position What do you need proof for? When every disease is a distraction I’ll be careful with words Did I scream through the blast? I wish I could keep track of reality Have you noticed how I laugh? I went sane and I went back too deep And there’s all of this space we were not using I thought we could make something out of it Oh and all of this fear’s counterproductive I thought we should bet on the next best thing And there’s all of this space we were not using I thought we could make something out of it Oh and all of this fear’s counterproductive I thought we should bet on the next best thing After all that can be said, I just can’t wait To get my own reasons out of the way If there’s nothing we can do to make it happen Let the pieces move ’til we find our meaning My head is overflowing Information is a load I can’t take off The more I hear, the less I know I just need to find a way to cross And there’s all of this space we were not using I thought we could make something out of it Oh and all of this fear’s counterproductive I thought we should bet on the next best thing And there’s all of this space we were not using I thought we could make something out of it Oh and all of this fear’s counterproductive I thought we should bet on the next best thing

I was tired, so tired I let slip, yeah, a couple of lies It’s not what you lose, it’s what you gain A clean slate for the well-intentioned Cut it down to the chase A wall of sound aiming right at my face I’m weakened, easily wounded These are our times for survival I sleep between you and me I grieve my need to carry your feelings Only time will tell if I’m getting better At being well Nothing matters more than taking cover from Another shitstorm pushing you to the bottom Reason only knows what you’re ready to explore Ego only grows from the wounds you ignore Nothing matters more than taking cover from Another shitstorm pushing you to the bottom One leap into silence and again I see my fear of things being unchanged What can you expect from an empty shell In which I only dwell Nothing matters more than taking cover from Another dark storm pushing you to the bottom Nothing matters more than taking cover from Another shitstorm pushing you to the bottom Reason only knows what you’re ready to explore Ego only grows from the wounds you ignore Nothing matters more than taking cover from Another shitstorm pushing you to the bottom I don’t think that it’s too late to compromise, compromise Take some, give some, care to let our love decide, our love decide I don’t think that it’s too late to compromise, compromise Take some, give some, care to let our love decide, our love decide

The Weather 03:56
Am I here? Am I compensating? Am I lost in the setting? Did I learn anything? I came to see mysteries unravel I’m stuck in the middle Unlocking the channel Is this it? Did I try to resist Too long for my wits To survive anything? Is this where We remember we never Could have done any better Than to feel the weather? When I put you on the spot Doesn’t mean that I am not Gonna take care of us (yeah) I like you better with my doubts My inconvenient thoughts Know we’re saving for later Something’s waiting around the curve I ain’t got the nerves for this What always felt like holding on is One step away from moving on My health is as sacred as a temple No problem I can't handle I’m up for the search I’ll sleep until I’m too young to remember What came first, what came after How much peace is worth When I put you on the spot Doesn’t mean that I am not Gonna take care of us (yeah) I like you better with my doubts My inconvenient thoughts Know we’re saving for later

Cabin 03:48
I know it’s getting warmer I don’t go out much There’s a line I've been trying not to cross I’m waiting for lightning To turn me back into glass There are quite a few good things that I’ve burned for myself Am I doing the best I can? So much energy spent I wish I had a cabin To heal myself again Am I doing the best I can? So much energy spent My eye is a keyhole My mind is ready to unfold Give me one good reason To hit the road again I don’t mind the long hours If you want me there If you want me there

I know you think it’s looking better From another angle, it’s a lot to handle I was never here to tell you How to feel but to know what’s real When did we start making decisions From guarded places as a sad replacement? We’ve been sitting here hoping For one to notice the colours shifted Walking on eggshells avoiding heartbreaks Is that all my life has to offer now? What should be simple feels complicated Do we have it in us to play against the odds? You and I, we both know we don’t have the luxury Of giving in to fear Instead of feeding a different energy But what will come, will be You and I, we both know we don’t have the luxury Of giving in to fear Instead of feeding a different energy Whatever we feel What will come, will be There’s a sudden change of current My eyes are clearing, and leaves are turning I don’t know about my judgment I got no witness, but a buried feeling Once there’s a movement, there is a motive And time is just one way to look for it Here in the dampness, we’ve waited too long But how can we know where to go when our will is gone You and I, we both know we don’t have the luxury Of giving in to fear Instead of feeding a different energy But what will come, will be You and I, we both know we don’t have the luxury Of giving in to fear Instead of feeding a different energy Whatever we feel What will come, will be

Retreat 03:57
Again, I’m thinking too far ahead But I don’t know what comes and goes I’m vain if I don’t believe I can See this through, I’m short on fuel I lie thinking I could die Forgetting all about how We have come this far At night My mind is colour-blind It brushes the light off me I’m not sure what it means, yeah Did you already know what to do? Time holds on better to you I sleep to feel at home again I miss my love for everything Now I Start to think I might Give in to my near sight Fall back with the morning light I still Believe that this ain’t real Until I can retreat Release and make my peace, yeah If I stop being this, can I still be me? If I go for an exit, will it lead me here? As I look forward to my grief I recognize my saviour in the face of failure I knew much more than all that noise

Appalaches 06:07
Cracked open in halves Two sides of a mountain It’s too soon to laugh It brings drought to the lowlands I’ll be careful to ask For what I’m ready to grasp Rivers stay uncrossed By the coming of dusk The closer we get The larger the surface May you lose the trail Gather up your belongings If I try really hard, I’ll remember my age My predictions have failed I am ready to face my time Do you feel the water rise As the light goes to waste It’s a lonely road to walk To be the one to make your own luck Both feet in the mud I’ll wait for a signal There’s a stream that recalls All things are eternal I don’t think this light has been identified I see trees densify, will my fate come alive? Do you feel the water rise As the light goes to waste It’s a lonely road to walk To be the one to make your own luck Do you feel the water rise As the light goes to waste It’s a lonely road to walk To be the one to make your own luck If we stay until we fall, we fall There’s a chance that we run out of luck I won’t ask for anything at all Only that you keep your head above the water If we stay until we fall, we fall There’s a chance that we run out of luck I won’t ask for anything at all Only that you keep your head above the water If we stay until we fall, we fall There’s a chance that we run out of luck I won’t ask for anything at all Only that you keep your head above the water

Healing Suns 03:30
These young trees only claim to be happy The sea has worn a hollow smile for weeks I need a shift from a total heart eclipse But I’m confident things can settle down I’ll be a leader but only for myself I’ll be a beacon when no one else is When I am safe, I can be complete again You don’t need me to pretend Watch me fall when there’s no one there Leave this all to teach myself better I feel more than my own share I’m not sure if I still care Truth be told, I feel out of myself Something calls from beyond my senses I don’t know if I can be of help My healing suns carry me on I will be done when I know where to stand I might have fallen for the game once too often Stretching a fire always feels a bit strange But I’m confident things can settle down Go with the side you can handle the best We’ll understand when we meet there and rest The skies are filled with my latest regrets You don’t need me to explain Watch me fall when there’s no one there I’d leave this all to teach myself better I feel more than my own share I’m not sure if I still care Truth be told, I feel out of myself Something calls from beyond my senses I don’t know if I can be of help My healing suns carry me on Watch me fall when there’s no one there I feel more than my own share Truth be told, I feel out of myself My heeling suns carry me on
10.
I cannot compete With the evil storms I feed I watch their bodies fight And learn to bend back toward the light We’ll wait it out I found a new surface Like a second-hand purpose I’ll nurse myself into A new rendition, another point of view We're breathing through I’m slipping through the cracks To join you in the depths Please remind me how To climb my way back out This time I’ll make my bed Into a wider space Take us to the coast There’s enough boat for us both You already know We’ve had to drown to take another form One to build from I’m slipping through the cracks To join you in the depths Please remind me how To climb my way back out I know we’ve got the same Part of us that says We should navigate Into a wider space I don’t wanna be a special child I wanna see what the skies hold for me I don’t wanna be a spaceship pilot I don’t need the attention blinding me What else is there to feel?
