Track Name: Half Lit
It's sweet to think I was complete
Without this shit behind me

And it's hard to find my state of mind
Before mistakes were made and hardened

Would you come over? Sort my thoughts out?
Before I press rewind

And I know it's dumb and useless but
I can't deny it's kind

I'm half lit
Like a burnt out filament
Backwards, I feel bent
Glowing, lambent

I'm dumb I'm bored
I want no more
Just take it away and leave it

I hope I beg it's not too late to
Give me the answers I'm longing

Would you come over? Sort my thoughts out?
Before I press rewind

And I know it should be unspoken
I can't deny it's kind

I'm half lit
Like a burnt out filament
Backwards, I feel bent
Glowing, lambent
Track Name: Projections
It's sad but it's true
I've been living easy out of the blue
No it'll never happen to you
But I wouldn't know it, wouldn't know it

Leaving myself behind
Shaking reflections for some kind of sign
I can be unkind but
I can be gentle too

Like the arrow in the stream
I know that I could lose you
Looking down and stuttering
You know that I wouldn't want to

If I sit inside here long enough
If I turn belly up and lame
I'm tired of being bitter
I'm so bad at taking the blame

Is there something that you meant to say?
I should be leaving here anyway
Eating its way through my gut, I
Never even got on the train

Leaving myself behind
Shaking reflections for some kind of sign
I can be unkind but
I can be gentle too

Like the arrow in the stream
I know that I could lose you
Looking down and stuttering
You know that I wouldn't want to

If I sit inside here long enough
If I turn belly up and lame
I'm tired of being bitter
I'm so bad at taking the blame
Track Name: Lilt
Shocked and
Slightly paralyzed
Keeps me up at night

How did I live
Without a light?
Keeps me out of sight

If I fall
Could I catch myself?
It's ideal
I will save no one else

If it twists
Bends and cracks
Could I ever relax?

I need it back again
Hasn't been so easy
For a long time

If I fall
Could I catch myself?
It's ideal
I will save no one else
Track Name: Cutting A Hole
(Cutting a hole
I could not go
Turning to face
Longer shadows)

I cannot feed
I cannot hold
My hands are made of coal

She lures me
I've got to go
Can't be late for her show

Out of mind
Out of sight
I am held in the light

I cannot feed
I cannot hold
Forever night
Track Name: 1/5
I feel like running
Away from it all
A big expectation
A never ending lull

A flat full moon
Took everything
Took him away
And the song I sang

I can't be mad cause
I never learned how
Inside a never ending
Cyclical

I can't be angry cause
I never learned how
Inside a cyclical
Never ending

One five
One five
You're right
Sometimes
One five
One five
Sometimes
I see the light
Track Name: Strange Obsession
I saw the numbers within the light
You made me feel like I crushed your life

Ripped the perfect plans for the future
I guess I've got a strange obsession

I don't when I'll learn my lesson
I guess I've got a strange obsession

I guess I really don't blame you
I would hate me too

(I deserve to be kicked so badly)

I guess I've got a strange obsession
I don't when I'll learn my lesson
Track Name: Hard To Love
Am I really so hard to love?
Or are you not trying hard enough?

You are weak and
You are a coward who
Doesn't know how to love
