Track Name: Climhazzard
I’ve kept quiet
Buried away
Beneath the heart
Behind the veil
A curse
Everything that’s wrong in this world
Taxing every breath
Every life, equal
Every bomb and shell
Marching through our towns
They burn it all, burn it all
Down to the ground

Here we’ve found
A safe place to hide our fears.
Here we’ve found,
Our eden.

Here we’ve found
A safe place to hide our fears.
Track Name: Beyond Set Boundaries
We can’t turn back
The engine has come to a screeching halt
There is no stage here.
Play hero, hide the wounds that scarred
False courage,
Her frantic eyes and a hollow helpless smile.
See through this shell of a body,
Tell me where to go from here.
Honesty and hope is all we need.
A gentle touch to approve of the lives we lead.
We lock the truth away behind closed doors,
But our words seep through the floors like chemicals.
Words seep through the floors.
Dear self,
The weight you have born
Is so very taxing
Send help,
Your spine’s only straight
with loved ones to back it.
Honesty and hope is all we need.
A gentle touch to approve of the lives we lead.
We lock the truth away behind closed doors.
But our words seep through the floors like chemicals.
I won't let myself fall by their hands.
Let me be guided, by someone
Who finally understands.
Track Name: Set Fire to the Sea
Our eyes are wide,
Against the night
As darkness spreads,
envelops light
And the wind speaks out
As she pulls,
And presses on your bones.
Here we stand
Patiently awaiting things that will never come
Forget the sun
Retire, for we’ve set, fire to the sea.
What have we done?
Gathered up our foolish pride,
Gave it all unto the tide.
Clear out your lungs,
As the air leaves your frame
Your eyes begin to strain
To see what we’ve done
Now what have we to run from?
Now what have we to run from?

Her voice is so delicate
Her winds seem so calm
And the sun’s out tonight,
Or is that just pride,
To quicken my pulse
Encompass it all?

We’ve grown so distant from love
Now what have we to run from?
It was dark tonight after all,
Or were our eyes just closed?
The flames at sea have grown so tall
Forget, what we don’t know.
It was dark tonight after all,
Or were our eyes just closed?
The flames at sea have grown so tall
Gone, what we don’t know.
Track Name: Ándale Kid, Ándale
Echoes, of what went wrong.
Colder, and over again.
Haunted, reminders of us.
Breathe in, but never
Out.
This, must be love.
This, must be love.
I speak tonight of a love that should
never have been lost.
This, must be love.
This, must be love.
You put your spin on the truth
just to make it work for you.
This, must be love.
This, must be. . .
Falling apart.
So speak easy, one last time,
Just come out and say,
Lie one more time,
We’ll never change.
Never change.

I speak tonight of a love that should
never have been lost.
This, must be love.
This, must be love.
You put your spin on the truth
just to make it work for you.
This, must be love.
This, must be. . .

Love loses shape,
Iodine stains skin,
We’re left,
Holding fragments of broken glass.
Clamor.
Track Name: Catalyst & Calligraphy
We've created nothing but a reason to sleep
Tangled up our lives within the sheets
Hidden away from a fate we can't escape
Running from all the choices we must make
I'd imagined better times in lives I'd dreamt
As a child my love meant permanence
Every bond that I was made to break
I swore to myself that things would stay the same

(Vision clouded)
Within your eyes
(I find myself)
I find myself
(Losing footing)
Burning bright
(But gaining ground)
Still yearning

Pull in the shades
Drown out the light
Everything just falls in place in time
Let's keep things quiet
'Til we've found the last piece
That fits

Oh it's a war, in my head, in my heart, in my core
Our ties are strained
A cigarette burnin out just the same as the time
Left to fend for myself and I'm fallin behind
A gentle touch just enough to help me forget
Hold me close 'til my ghosts leave me with the sunset
I'd imagined better nights in lives I'd dreamt
As a lover my heart was confident
Our chests can catch every rhythm sent
Keep our blood pumpin’, pumpin’ in

(Vision clouded)
Within your eyes
(I find myself)
I find myself
(Losing footing)
Burning bright
(But gaining ground)
Still yearning

Pull in the shades
Drown out the light
Everything just falls in place in time
Let's keep things quiet
'Til we've found the last piece
That fits

Oh it's a war, in my head, in my heart, in my core
Our ties are strained
Oh it's a war, in my head, in my heart, in my core
Our ties are strained
Locked away the same artificial night
Like candle wicks we'll keep on burnin
We'll keep on burnin (repeat x4)
We've developed a reputation for hiding
Yeah, in the back of the closet counting steps
There's a war inside my house
Crashing down like waves on pavement
Soon to sweep me away
A beating pulse from the heart inside my chest

(Vision clouded)
Within your eyes
(I find myself)
I find myself
(Losing footing)
Burning bright
(But gaining ground)
Still yearning

Pull in the shades
Drown out the light
Everything just falls in place in time
Let's keep things quiet
'Til we've found the last piece
That fits
