Track Name: All Alone
All Alone
"You seem so lost" is all you would say.
Strong vines grow around my waist,
and I don't feel,
I am lost in this sea,
I don't feel,
I don't feel,
I am all alone with you here.
All alone with you here.

"You're falling apart" is all you would say.
String unwinds, then cascades.
Down and down,
and down,
to dusk,
and "I don't feel",
"I don't feel"
I am all alone with you here,
All alone with you, here.
Track Name: Thorns
Thorns
Hail from Heaven is on the attack.
No one here is saying that you could go back.
Buried by your blood brother.

All the arrows poured down, we threw them back.
The tongue tore out the secret for you to take back.
Buried by your blood brother.

Held my breath, turned a tornado in its tracks.
Jagged dark, give it back, give it back.
Buried by your blood brother.

Nothing here ever goes away.

Buried by your blood brother,
Buried by your blood brother,
Buried by your blood brother,
Buried by your blood brother.
Track Name: Autumn You
Autumn You
I lost years to this.
I am not going home.
I am the one dying in your sun,
though it is my fault I know.
I am crushed by the giant sounds
of your heart beating Autumn Loud,
Autumn you,
Winter you.
Anyway away from you is not going home.
The paint on the walls show through,
everywhere I go.
The spirits that float from your eyes,
wander through my mind.
I am in your room by myself,
I am in your room with no one else.
No one else.

I waited years for this,
Now I don't know what's home.
I don't know who I am at all,
wordless, hollow.
Glass teeth and swollen eyes,
I am barely awake in this light,
Listening for you,
Listening for you.

I move them all away,
I cast them all away,
For Autumn You,
Autumn You,
Autumn You,
Autumn You...

"Where's home" you said, and glanced down the road awhile,
"Where's home" I said, "The blue badge of the Autumn sky",
"Where's home" you said, "it is moving so fast it is hard to know",
"Where's home" I said, wherever it is you are.
Track Name: Strange Language
Strange Language
Shining down rays of bad luck.
You protect yourself with reflections in a box.
In our garden your words float up,
Beautiful I hold them in my palms.

Didn't know the words you said,
Never wanted it to end,
Fills my heart this strange language,
This strange language, this strange language.

You are cautious in this cold night,
But still I'll try to kiss you a second time.
And though I know it never is enough.
So still, I still, try to fill, it up, up, up, up.

Didn't know the words you said,
Never wanted it to end.
Fills my heart this strange language,
This strange language, this strange language.

Your strange language floats all around me,
Your strange language floats around.
Your strange language floats all around me,
Your strange language floats around.

Didn't know the words you said,
Never wanted it to end.
Fills my heart this strange language,
This strange language, this strange language.
Track Name: Halluminations
Halluminations
Who is this conversation with...
And who is being convinced...
It's me and you,
him or he,
us and them,
or in-between.
Hallucinating me in my head.
Halluminating me in my head.

Who are we talking to,
I and me are getting confused.
It's night and dust,
Eclipse and fire,
Crimson choir,
Desperate liar.
Hallucinating me in my head,
Halluminating me in my head.

Please stop, the lights go out we disappear,
Please stop, the film it breaks we are disappearing,
Please stop.... I go click, click, click, click, click, click.
Make it, Stop.

Who is this conversation with,
and who is being convinced?
Track Name: Disappearing
Disappearing
Beautiful you move in the mist.
With your cool blue calm eyes we climb the raindrops,
All these lost leaves cling all around.
I sing in some silence "don't let this moment stop".
In this garden at dusk this night is mine.
Your words move quiet,
I hold them in my palms,
And swallow them down like this perfect night.
Please don't let this moment stop,
Please, don't let this moment go,
Please, don't let this ever go.

While you wade through our time.
I slip into your sea and watch the shapes above.
I am somehow disappearing,
Distorting all the faces that I try to keep near,
close,
home.
Then slips away.

I am somehow disappearing.
I am somehow disappearing.
Track Name: Summer Lion
Summer Lion
Held in irons,
The Summer lion.
Held in irons,
The Summer lion.

Tame, there is no tame.
I'll hold my breath until I am awake.
Tame, there is no tame.
The walls just burn and cinders sing to flames.

Held in irons.

Cinders sing to flames,
Neglected I wait,
Hey, there is blood on that name.
You pull the stings of the ghost and drown slow above the undertow.

Held in irons the Summer lion.
Track Name: Sing It Right
Sing It Right
My hair is the ocean, oh.
I am lost at sea so someone sew,
a straight line back to me well,
you wind it up, I'll make it go.
Fasten your eyes in tight,
up to the stars in a solemn ride.
In the moonlight sing it right,
spin, jump up and the knot will bind.
I can't just stay here and let it go.

Dance if you can to break this floor,
I am burning out (I am burning out).
In the moonlight sing it right.
The edges blur then fiction dies.
We're the ones with the wonder eyes,
We're the ones with the wonder eyes.

I don't feel anything,
where my heart used to be.
Just the crush of the constant tide,
and the memory that it divides.
I am all atrophy.
Inhaled a whirlwind that just won't leave.
Crying for what I don't need.
All I want is what I don't need.
I can't just stay here and let it go.

Dance if you can to break this floor,
I am burning out (I am burning out).
In the moonlight sing it right.
The edges blur and the fiction dies.
We're the ones with the wonder eyes,
We're the ones with the wonder eyes.
We got no communication,
We've got communication,
We got no communication,
We've got communication.

My brain is a mountain slope.
When I fall apart the whole thing goes.
This landslides my whole tribe.
This waiting's forever while we're alive.
It seems so clear, so clear.

Dance if you can to break this floor,
I am burning out (I am burning out).
In the moonlight sing it right.
The edges blur and the fiction dies.
We're the ones with the wonder eyes.
We're the ones with the wonder eyes.
We got no communication,
We've got communication,
We've got no communication,
We've got communication.
We are the ones with the wonder eyes.
Track Name: Desolation Tongues
Desolation Tongues
Dead silence,
Explodes like a bomb in my mind,
No one speaks,
And there is no one to be left behind again,
No one to be left behind.
Towers loom,
and colonies of black holes collide.

Into a daydream,
About all the thoughts in your mind
You're in love with another,
And you daydream about the thoughts
In their mind,
I am struck by the gravity you leave behind,
Contained a picture of beauty that pixels won't synthesize.

No one spoke the truth but no one here lied.
No one spoke the truth but no one here lied.
Desolation tongues echo in the quiet,
All alone, alone, alone, alone, alone, alone, alone it's just silence.

This sadness.
Occurs like something in mind,
No one speaks,
and there is no one to be left behind again,
No one to be left behind.
It doesn't break my chest,
And colonies collide.

No one spoke the truth but no one here lied.
No one spoke the truth but no one here lied.
Desolation tongues echo in the quiet,
Desolation tongues echo in the quiet,
Moving over oceans with no end in mind,
Mouthfuls of salt water just to decline,
My heart won't die, so I'll destroy it in time,
Rotting in the air,
all alone, alone, alone, it is just quiet.
Track Name: If You Slip Under
If You Slip Under
If you slip under the last breath I'll hold in my lungs,
is heavier than forever with each second above you.
I am lost in the "never",
conscious between these memories,
grey silken figures brazen hang like willows.
My heart breaks slow forever.
You're carried across the stone cold lake,
in a fever of hunger that you could never escape.
There is no leaving now,
there is no other sound.
If you slip under your voice will echo in silence.
And ease to nothing.
Always alone is the only ending.
Track Name: Szép Szív
Szeretlek.
Track Name: Come Outside
Come Outside
Come outside the darkness has been beginning.
Come outside the darkness has been beginning.
Come outside,
Come outside,
Come outside.

All in time,
the light is the dark of our eyes.
Waiting lines,
fills in the need for disguise.
All in time,
All in time,
All in time.
All in time,
All in time,
All in time.
