Track Name: Pander
it's funny how we pander
to ourselves
it's funny how we pander
to something else

you will never be
fully grown
always running higher
on your own

i don't feel bad if you
feel ashamed
i don't feel bad if you
feel ashamed

cause you should feel bad
you should feel ashamed
cause you should feel bad
you should feel ashamed

i hope in the end
i am the one
laughing
Track Name: Lethologica 2
i cant believe
i really forgot how to speak
next time i promise
not to let the words lead

too fast, too wily
running around is not me
but i'll die from waiting
to breathe

i trace
the seams
and the knots
before i knock

complexity
some feeling
like sun shining
when you're with me

i trace
the seams
and the knots
before i knock

complexity
sensitivity
like sun shining
i won't lose it

i will promise
not to drop the locket
contains a secret
that you thanked in your sleep

saturated
and overrated
i won't go so fast
so we don't get sick

i trace
the seams
and the knots
before i knock

complexity
some feeling
like sun shining
when you're with me

i trace
the seams
and the knots
before i knock

complexity
sensitivity
like sun shining
i won't lose it
Track Name: Berdreymin
where do you go?
hide in the snow?
i just don't know
if i need you

where are you now?
with me somehow?
are you still around?
if i need you

i can tell
when i am strung along
by a line of fate

i will fall
if i'm too early
or just too late

where do you go?
hide in the snow?
i just don't know
if i need you

where are you now?
with me somehow?
are you still around?
if i need you

lost promises
laugh at me
in my sleep

it's now what you have
what you keep

where do you go?
hide in the snow?
i just don't know
if i need you

where are you now?
with me somehow?
are you still around?
if i need you
Track Name: Clowded
try to build my strength outside
but there's nothing inside to save
i've talked through you so much
that i think you have finally dissolved
(i try, i try)

i'm out in the way
i'll come back here someday
there's not more i can say
i'm out in the way

clouded judgment lead me astray
but there's nothing i can save
i took your bright neon glow
and finally made it my own
(i try, i try)

i'm out in the way
i'll come back here someday
there's not more i can say
i'm out in the way
Track Name: Voileblanc
drift away
in circles
as i slip

drift away
as i slip
in circles
Track Name: Theora
dressed all in white
boldly, you came and went

interpreting signs
from a god that's silent

all fingers point east
my worries are the least
when i hear you sing

enough is enough
and i just cant get enough
what else will you bring?

long lonely nights
singing like the moon

pops and skips
transport me back so soon

all fingers point east
my worries are the least
when i hear you sing

enough is enough
and i just cant get enough
what else will you bring?
Track Name: Cthonic
my brittle ghost teeth
try to sink into the flesh

but they are empty
and pass right through

i could fade in the morning light
or burn it all instead

but i'd rather stay
though i'm not true

i dare you
say my name, 3 times,
and take me on, take me

i dare you
say my name,
just to see me, for real

i dare you
would you reach out
if i asked you to?

i dare you
just to speak to me again

my brittle ghost teeth
they try and try and try

but they are empty
like what i speak

i could burn it all instead
i could fade in the light

but i'd rather stay
i dont wanna fight

i dare you
say my name, 3 times,
and take me on, take me

i dare you
say my name,
just to see me, for real

i dare you
would you reach out
if i asked you to?

i dare you
just to speak to me again
Track Name: Crushed
a crueler love could have had me
for a while
i wonder if you still adore me, or you hate me
if you never smile

but I've seen enough to know
that I'm better, it's real

a word that once knew me, a crushed memory
in my heart
i should've avoided you
from the start

no i didn't ever mean to
lead you on

(i want you all alone
if you don't...)
Track Name: Solipsism
i wish
i wish you were real
Track Name: Slown
stay stronger for the rest
only when they've caught you at your best

a monolith cold and clear,
always stands sure and near

i would say i love you
but you already know
