Track Name: Last Night
so the story goes
you're not allowed to be in love
and it all falls down
he don't want you around
you better get yourself out

so you're on your own
you try to sleep the sorrow gone
but it stirs up strong
you're awake and it's all wrong
you're awake and it's all wrong

so you're on your own
you try to sleep the sorrow gone
but it's sadness now
til the hurt passes out
til the hurt passes out

sadness til you learn passed
what you know

melancholy don't you worry
i'm still on my back for you
Track Name: Sliders
soldering my ears to what you're telling me
panicked and conducting all this energy
when did it get this bad
when did it get this sad

now i get to
stacking up my wits
to kick the jealousy
body holding arrows
and they're quivering
oh another brisk walk home
with my body
dipping street lights low

home walk body strip the streetlights low

wishing that my tongue
arranged it better now
walk it shake it different in me
get it out
but it's already gone down
i'm just permeating lows now

dream doom from a weak sleep
home walk body strip the streetlights low
dream doom from a weak sleep
home walk body strip the streetlights low
walk it off shake it shake me
get it off get free
walk it off shake it shake me
get it off get free

dream doom from a weak sleep
dream doom from a weak sleep
Track Name: Danger Ocean
i don't know how far i'll go
but i know i gotta go
and i know i gotta go tonight

i don't know
how the heat got cold
how the heat's getting got now
and what the heat's getting told
but this has gotta end
and this has gotta end tonight

i slip out so you'll notice that i'm gone
but the haunting that i wanted never comes
i slip out so you're sorry when i'm gone
never were you sorry, never once

i don't know
if you know
how far i could go
but you'll find out tonight

i'll slip out in the night
you'll never know i'm gone
your body heaving heavy
your body all alone
you'd finally come around
you'd notice i was gone
and you're buried underground

the silt would shudder over you
but they would never come for you
and you could haunt my every dream
and you would know how wrong you'd been

you got it wrong

and i would lay upon the dirt
and mimic how your figure lay there first

you got it wrong

and with the smallest smile alight
i'd warm the dirt above you all night
Track Name: Pazzida
one day you're gonna cry cry cry
and i am gonna be
the flag they hoist half mast
to mourn your melancholy

or the tears will trickle
face first down my face first
and i'll be the girl who hopes
you'll hoist your flag for me

one day you might decide
that you'd fare better with me
far behind
and though your wingspan doubles mine
i'll fly toward you
with all my might

oh i'll fly toward you
with all my
with all my might
while you're mine
i'll cross the skyline
with all my might
with all my might

i hope your hands in mine
when the continents fragment
to make themselves divide
and i hope you'll hold me tight
when all there's left to do
is watch the water rise
and i'll move to shift
our shapes to fit
the folds in which we lie
so when our bed's turn tombs
they'll find us intertwined
they'll find us intertwined

oh i'll fly toward you
with all my
with all my might
while you're mine
i'll cross the skyline
with all my might
with all my might

oh i'll fly toward you
with all my
with all my might
while you're mine
i'll cross the skyline
with all my might
with all my might
Track Name: Kyoto Train
if you're just scared
don't take it back
if you're just scared
don't take it back
don't take it back
don't take it back
you're giving me a fright
please don't take it back

your ire
and the iron in it
get in the ground
my spine is magnetized
and i lay down
you don't have to say it
for the hurt to get heard
you don't have to say it
i'm just saying

if you're just scared
don't take it back
if you're just scared
don't take it back
don't take it back
don't take it back
you're giving me a fright
please don't take it back

most of me knows
we don't define a binary
and i'm getting scared
the tears are rolling harder
and i don't need it said
you designed the method
to avoid your intent
now the space has mourned
the occupation
getting an end

if you're just scared
don't take it back
if you're just scared
don't take it back
don't take it back
don't take it back
you're giving me a fright
please don't take it back
Track Name: Under
slow breath
eyes down
i can hear my heart
and it hammers hard
it's because you brought me here

and suddenly the grounds
under my back
instead of underfoot
and overhead is hovering
with what i overheard
and love is the word

slow breath
eyes down
i can hear my heart
and it hammers hard
it's because you brought me here

be careful
don't you fall

we were treading night light
and the quiet like a sheet
began to billow down
and it held us down
oh it held us down
it held us down

i stood against the sky
and this is how i saw the world
and how the world saw me
as quiet as a memory
the light held onto where we'd been

slow breath
eyes down
i can hear my heart
and it hammers hard
it's because you brought me here
