Track Name: Amaranth
I tried to read between lines
But there's interference caught in the signal
I wait and worry, worry is wait and wait is worry
But it takes so long, Its just so dismal

I guess I'll just miss you for a while
Counting the days coming in single file

Am i wanted cause I'm willing?
Am i liked cause I'm here?
Press hard and disappear

I guess I'll just miss you for a while
Counting the days coming in single file
Constant bleeding amaranth and carmine
How long do I have to wait before I see a sign?
Track Name: Victory
My soul is cold and heavy
But my spirit remains pale
It takes a second to curse the stars
But it takes a life to know they won't respond

I just want victory
To be the one, finally
To know that I'm winning
But forever I just cry

Say goodbye with a smile
But my blood runs pale
It takes a muscle just to say it
And to say it is all wrong

I just want victory
To be the one, finally
To know that I'm winning
But forever I just cry

My soul is cold and heavy
But my spirit remains pale
Say goodbye with a smile
But my blood runs pale

(tired of feeling so sad)

I just want victory
To be the one, finally
To know that I'm winning
But forever I just cry

(tired)
Track Name: Carmine
Listen to me, only me
You don't need it
You fall too easily

I know it's tempting
To think it's true
But these feelings won't follow you

It just takes time
To fade it completely
But you have to remember to be happy

Cause carmine is always finite
But something will come to me

It's not worth it to hold on
So let go, let go already
Track Name: Me, U and Mew
It's time to go go go
They know just how to make you fall apart
But I want to know know know
Where do you end and where do you start

But it's okay kay kay
You have to make something of it anyway
It's time to go go go
But I'm not sure I'll ever be ready

You just have to go out
And bite the bullet
You just have to go out
And take all the bullshit
Cause it's never gonna leave ya

It's me
And it's you
And it's everyone we knew
Track Name: James
I'd say i've seen stranger days
Without you
But the clear air remains the same
James

Buried silver
Won't bring us back
All I wanted
Was to bring you back

So distant and so cold
Burnt by the giant sun
I don't think I'll ever have enough
But there's no other way anyway

I could walk away in a daze
But it doesn't do well anyway

Buried silver
Won't bring us back
All I wanted
Was to bring you back

They all told me about you
They all said things about you
But I know they're not true

(Buried silver
All i wanted)
Track Name: People Like Us are the Only Ones Here
I tried to look down
Looking all around
Avoiding what validates my fear

I used to believe
What now is not true
That people like us are the only ones here

Swear to god
You were not trying to avoid my gaze
Feeling lost
When you stumble trying to remember my name

But it's gone
(under my pillow)
And into the shadows
(into some dreams)

I don't feel
(under the bed)
Around my head like birds
(like a fantasy)

I tried to look down
Looking all around
Avoiding what validates my fear

I used to believe
What now is not true
That people like us are the only ones here

People like us are the only ones
Track Name: Say It Right
In the day
In the night
Say it right
Say it all
You either got it
Or you don't
You either stand or you fall
When your will is broken
When it slips from your hand
When there's no time for joking
There's a hole in the plan

Oh you don't mean nothing at all to me
No you don't mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me

I can't say that I'm not lost and at fault
I can't say that I don't love the light and the dark
I can't say that I don't know that I am alive
And all of what I feel I could show
You tonight you tonight

Oh you don't mean nothing at all to me
No you don't mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me

From my hands I could give you
Something that I made
From my mouth I could sing you another brick that I laid
From my body I could show you a place God knows
You should know the space is holy
Do you really want to go?

Oh you don't mean nothing at all to me
No you don't mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me
Track Name: YR
Lead to believe
That I'll never speak again
Left behind
What you still think of as a friend

But I was the fool
Who couldn't visualize an end

I was wrong in believing
Off the hook and leaving

Don't wanna see
Any reminders of existence
Only spoken of
In past tense

But I was the fool
And I still play the fool

I was wrong in believing
Off the hook and leaving
Another state of being
I was wrong in believing
Track Name: hum
Distant memories
Start to seem so sweet
I could trace the avenue
We used to meet

But I don't

I keep it solitary
In my head
Hungry for something
I'll never be fed

I'll just hum
A tune
You wrote once
In your sleep

I'll just hum
For you
To come back
To me

It was sweet
Track Name: Her Long Long Journey to Forget
I know it's sad
But it's alright
We all have to forget
Some of the time

I would say you could
If you didn't already
But it's alright
It's alright

Let the sun set and rise
It's alright
Track Name: Big Gold Ring
Lie face up in a whirlpool
A voice that scratches but never screams
If all could just stay still and never leave
Closed eyes and turns dark

It goes on and on and on and on
It goes on through me but I have faith
It goes on and on and on and on
It goes on forever and ever amen

A current that reaches but never touches
Close to dying and turns dark

It goes on and on and on and on
It goes on through me but I have faith
It goes on and on and on and on
It goes on forever and ever amen

I don't want to see how it ends
So I cover my eyes long enough

It goes on and on and on and on
It goes on through me but I have faith
It goes on and on and on and on
It goes on forever and ever and ever
