Clear 00:52
Cold Summer 04:29
What if you could hear me What is it that you'd say I'm seeing things more clearly While the minutes pass away Why is it that you fear me When you see me around With the voices inside my head Your bells don't make a sound Holding on to what A hope that you won't fall When gold turns Don't come running for salvation Don't come running back
Ash 04:24
Wanna walk through the halls Gonna run through the walls Gonna follow us all night Wanna crawl through the halls Gonna drive through the walls Think we're gonna be alright  Gonna burn down the wall Wanna watch how it falls Pieces land in a circle  Ashes float to the sky Where you turn your eyes Reflect in pure glass Has it become realized now? Feels like I’m just getting by/getting high This should’ve been settled by now Ashes float to the sky
Chimes 02:53
It’s all you wanted I see it in your face When you falter You show it through your grace Live through the dreams That bleed into the day Blue window sun streams  Until it fades away While the day bends Time and time again Past fading Now we’re here Signs align And/Now it’s clear
Indoor Pool 04:32
To run in circles around my head is just a start Another purpose to play-out the part Years of silence are ringing in my ears Hard to determine other people’s fears Don’t read minds Too unkind to focus anyway Don’t remind me of burning colours Too unwise to know just what to say Through these skies Try to realize How even when they’re fading  The clouds can still can collide On the line Trying to survive And even when you’re waking It’s hard to face the light Don’t read minds Too unkind to focus anyway Cheers of silence are ringing in the years Hard to determine other people’s fears Waves wash in on time Complete the circle, draw/cross the line Letting it ring out, on my mark/mind Worn thin Hold me to the light Passing thoughts are present to divide One thing In the afterglow When all is gone what will you have to show?
Melted 01:22
Lost in thought, you stared But don't understand the face Glass melting/slipping through your fingers Leaves without a trace Gone are the days that you wish you could erase A warped mirror slides Onto the floor The light doesn't hide Was once there before 
100 Days 04:22
Been walking for a hundred days But no one is around I don't hear a sound A silence at the furthest reach But you can't get what's there Words hang in the air Words hang in the air Searching for words to say A dull sun through the clouds Nothing came to mind I'll take it as a sign Always on vacation You don't know when to come home Never at your station You can't be left alone Take time if you want it Don't waste time if you know That the sun won't rise in the morning Rise with the red glow
Mirage 04:52
We are going to find out What it’s like to go away Even if it kills us I thought I saw you Standing in the distance The sun beating down on your face Are you even there Are you even real We are going to find out What it’s like to go away And never come back again/alive
