Track Name: Contrast
The burning harp, red lights
in a black moving coffin.
Tire marks, they're gone
with a sneeze(x2).

Don't try to break me
'cause I see it calmly
There's no dark without the light(x3)

An empty vessel, the stars
they coat you with silence...with silence.
Don't stumble on others, you know we know
we all carry our truths, well how 'bout you.

Don't try to break me
'cause I carry it with me
The dark with the light(x3)

Don't try to break me
'cause I carry it with me
The dark with the light(x2)
Track Name: Concrete
Take your fork out of the socket, boy
and empty your pockets.
Take off your clothes
and swim in the icy water(x2)

Shut your mouth, we don't care
reevaluate your shape, form, share
Share for us to bear,
bear arms, bear knives, bear traps.

Bear arms
Bear knives
Bear traps.

Your opinions are a fickle bitch,
as she's bending against the wind
Enlightened you possess the x-ray sight,
but you're staring into the wrong light.

You might wanna fight, just out of sight
but you gotta know, brave little men will stand in your way.
A mainstay, that's for sure, we point the pitchforks and endure.
An enemy in our own mind(x4)

A distressed child throwing rocks through mirrors.
If we're all alike we must really hate ourselves(x2)

Well, who cares?
Should I care?
Should you?(x2)

Yeah, we should(x2)

With all of this evidence, it might seem kinda dense.
But in the end you're still gonna hit your head
right on the concrete.
Track Name: Dam
Well you might say, you're out of your comfort zone
wild and unpredictable
while you snooze off, and blindfold yourself
wearing a face that's stable

I have to admit, the dam is high,
a ride away from cracking.
A sigh

I have to submit, the dam lies on trees,
a sigh away from burning.
A breath.

Now break it down, flood your eyes.
Break it down, your tears are grains that roll off like dust.
Break it down, a mask of flies.
Break it down, all of the lies you chose to trust.

I have to admit, the dam is high,
a ride away from cracking.
A sigh

I have to submit, the dam lies on trees,
a sigh away from burning.
A breath.

Smile, say cheese.
Smile, if you please.
The night deafens your heartbeat.
Sleepwalk through others, a shroud of ghosts.
Doning the same sheets.

have to admit, the dam is high,
a ride away from cracking.
A sigh

I have to submit, the dam lies on trees,
a sigh away from burning.
A breath.
Track Name: New place
With a million roles,
you get lost
on rugged shores
eating the sun.

With a million sores,
walk unscathed
into a new world.
Release for peace.

Wash your face.
A new place?
Have you always been...
Have you always been here.

Lie with your lies
one last time,
soil your eyes.
A smile, truer than ever.

Look anew,
a fresh outlook,
pages from a burnt book
sip like grains into the drain.

Wash your face.
A new place?
Have you always been...
Have you always been here?

Yes, you have x5
Yes, you have been here.
Track Name: Maggie
She gazes out, the curtains sleep.
Don't hate the clouds, they only weep.
The whistling trinket around your neck.
It sings of her (x2)

Don't cower, she is coming soon.
She hides behind the travelling dune,
rides the wind that takes her home
back to you (x2)

Open the door,
hear her call out your name.
Maggie, honey,
I am coming back home.

Don't mistake the grains for tears
and everything you learned to fear.
In the darkest corners of your eye,
the wind blows them away(x2)

Open the door,
hear her call out your name.
Maggie, honey,
I am coming back home.
Track Name: Apricot
Daydreaming in a house of clay,
orange balls and orange squares.
Time to get up and find my way.
'cause all the orange things will fade.

I see ol' man James.
His face still looks the same.
A suitcase and orange hair.
All the orange things will fade.

The orange road on which he lays.
A ginger coat to hold his head.
He dreams of all his memory lanes
and all the orange things that fade.

Keep on walking, take that road.
Orange footprints that count my thoughts.
Tangerine signs, crooked rods,
and all the orange things that fade.

I step between the orange trees.
A ginger lady stubs my foot.
A peachy dress with apricot leaves,
and all the orange things that fade.

Skip her and head on straight.
Ol' man James and the orange lass.
A mounted wall of clay bricks.
Daydreaming in a house of clay
of all the orange things that will fade away,
of all the orange things that will fade away.

Fade away x4

Daydreaming in a house of clay...
