Track Name: Cracks
This time around,
I’m backed against the wall, my friend,
Unable to
Bring myself to confidence.
I don’t want anything at all,
I can’t believe that that’s your call.
That’s your call.

I see the cracks as they’re reaching towards the sky.
Our tower falls and it crumbles to the ground.
This bullshit stops and it’s piling back on me.
I see the cracks as they’re reaching towards the sky.
Our tower falls and it crumbles to the ground.
These storm clouds form and they’re pouring down on me.
Oh on me.

A final call,
This wasteland is our providence.
Your show is small,
I can’t quite bear the sight of it.
You pulled out daggers from the deep
Our time here deserved sympathy. Sympathy.

I see the cracks as they’re reaching towards the sky.
Our tower falls and it crumbles to the ground.
This bullshit stops and it’s piling back on me.
I see the cracks as they’re reaching towards the sky.
Our tower falls and it crumbles to the ground.
These storm clouds form and they’re pouring down on me.
Oh on me.

[Bridge]

I see the cracks as they’re reaching towards the sky.
Our tower falls and it crumbles to the ground.
This bullshit stops and it’s piling back on me.
I see the cracks as they’re reaching towards the sky.
Our tower falls and it crumbles to the ground.
These storm clouds form and they’re pouring down on me.
Oh on me.
Track Name: Treason
The drive, in short, is one for reason,
Not to cross or draw the line.
When three is one and less is treason,
We cross our wings and then take flight.

Cryptic woes and cold cut phrases
Trip the dormant fields of lies.
When innocence has all but faded,
The king on top’s in fast decline.

So I try to lift the guise in place,
But know I can’t be any stronger
Than all the love already raised
The kind of love I hope to follow.
Don’t despise. Just walk away.
These are men all afraid of the truth
They’re the ones who must choose.

There’s no need for Compensation
When all is gone that floats inside.
I don’t mean for conversation
When all my faith in works has died.

When tempered woes change the paces
And the lost boys run to hide,
The three and ones go trade their spaces
And leave the rest of us true lies.

So I try to lift the guise in place,
But know I can’t be any stronger
Than all the love already raised
The kind of love I hope to follow.
Don’t despise. Just walk away.
These are men all afraid of the truth
They’re the ones who must choose.

[Bridge]

Track Name: Tender
So many times I've
Fled from my own life
And I don't want to let this boat
Take me down.

'Cause I don't need to
Satisfy views
That terrify me and
Core me out

I don't wanna
Be the man who
Never breaks apart
And leaves the ground.

To die or struggle,
Lie and tumble,
This crash and burn
Will take me to the ground.

I never moved to love this light.
No bubble seemed to burst inside.
Sleek ribbon ties me to the floor.
I'm tender for more.

Look at your history,
the one that you mistreat.
It's no wonder that you
Come up shy.

Through faint sips of sorrow
And loans from tomorrow
These fresh stabs at victory will just
Leave you dry.

'Cause I don't wanna
Be the bad guy
The one who tells you
"You're not worth a thing."

You've got me listening
So don't be discrete
'Cause I don't wanna see you
Hit the ground.

I never moved to love this light.
No bubble seemed to burst inside.
Sleek ribbon ties me to the floor.
I'm tender for more.

I don't want to
I just try to
Be the one that I never was.
I might try to bring you back down.
It's always on.
Track Name: Found
Tell me, tell me, tell me
How to lose it and I’ll
I will take the time to
Become so much more
Than I had known.

Bring me, bring me back down
To where I once was
And I will show you a mind
Bound and lost in mirrors
So sublime.

Drinking down a message
I now call my tongue
I know all things sound the same
To those who walk without a song.

Taking down a line
Hung hollow on your wall
I know whom to follow
Long ways to the ground.

Take me away to a place that
I can call my own.
I want to go right now.
You bring me back to time spent
Underneath it all.
I want to go right now.
Take me on.

Shake me, shake me, shake me
‘Til you move me, ‘cause I’ve,
I have finally found a note to play my song
And carry on.

Tapping out the back beat
Drawn out on my thumb,
So far, too long we've been
Driving on and on.

Take me away to a place that
I can call my own.
I want to go right now.
You bring me back to time spent
Underneath it all.
I want to go right now.
Take me on.

[Bridge]

Please don’t go,
I might understand.
I will take you on
With my open hand
Sorry please don’t go,
I might understand.
I will take you…
On.

I will seek you out
With my emptiness,
And I will drink you down
With my loneliness.
And I will take you on
With my innocence
Because I may…
I may be that love.

Take me away to a place that
I can call my own.
I want to go right now.
You bring me back to time spent
Underneath it all.
I want to go right now.
Take me on.
