Track Name: I Know You Tried
well I know you tried
to keep the light from bleeding in
but now the colors blur
and what we were is only black

well I know you like those big eyes
they tear you down
but me, incased inside my eyelids at night
you pull me out

it's all coming down now I"m trying not to breathe i'm coming right back i'm falling underneath
and i can't stand the way we fight
Track Name: Two Hands
I was a sailor inside of a boat
you build with your hands
and I was a prisoner
inside of your two hands

but we will find
a way to right what we have done
and soon all these memories will slip away
from me

intoxicated by a mess of memories
they slur up my senses
until I can't even see

but we will find
a way to right what we have done
and soon all these memories will slip away
from me
Track Name: New Ways
and something's here
and what went wrong
tell me why something's gone
but I can't breathe
when you're just staring at me
and I know I'll come back out
and we just disappear out like ghosts
in the night

and I can't hide from all the light
it binds me down until I'm drowning in it
and we just find new ways to try
new ways to try

and you just throw your head back and howl
with humming smiles
we're humming happiness
but for how long
before we come
back to the ground
Track Name: Best
you say you were the best
but I thought it was a fake
but I thought you were faking

right
well I knew it wasn't right
I knew you were vacant

you say I'll be alright
and some days I'm mesmerized
by the fire I feel inside

fine
you will say that we'll be fine
but it's clawing through my eyes

there's a light
listlessly inside
the corners of my eyes

but tonight
it will break free from my mind
it'll leave me to unwind
Track Name: Skeleton
and I came to say just how I felt
when you took my bones and bled them out
and now I'm frozen like a deer in lights
I'll let it go if it takes all night

and now I wait for all the days to pass
with all the bruises on my legs and back
you whisper incoherencies to me
as if your words could repair me

wanna know what you do in the dark
because it weighs down on me

and now I'm simply a skeleton
you carved me with your words and with your skin
a bundle of my bones held simply
by all the things that you took from me

wanna know what you do in the dark
because it weighs down on me
Track Name: Swallow Me Up
I went down to the place where you lived
but by the time I went, you were gone
I spent my days caged up in your name
and now it rings absently

the waves just came and swallowed me up
and I didn't protest at all
because it feels so nice to be dragged out to sea
but alone with me, just me

(whistle)
