Track Name: They Won't Find Us
You caught me while I was sleeping,
I was trying to get you first.
You asked me why my eyes fell out,
At least they didn't burst.
With, with this midnight stomp,
You've got the pills with the paper tops,
This arpeggiator turns it on,
This arpeggiator turns it on.

They won't find us.

You've got twilight between your fingers
and the old lady answers slow,
She enunciates with her decay,
"You've got a lot less time than you know".
So you run up the hill towards the lightning.
And try to climb every bolt,
Inhale the gray all the sky can explain,
The rain soaks down and erodes.

They won't find us.

You caught me while I was sleeping,
I was trying to get you first.
You asked me why my eyes fell out,
At least they didn't burst.
With, with this paper stomp,
You've got the pills that are Autumn Up.
This arpeggiator turns it on,
This arpeggiator turns me on.

They won't find us.
Track Name: Iradell
Iradell sings like a sieve in the pouring rain,
Breaking into pieces things she'll put together again,
Sunk into the soil, known yet told to pretend.
A spoon left next to an hourglass of empty sand.

She broke through the ice to become a seamless malcontent,
String fell from the sky and she seemed like she welcomed it.
Whatever the rainbow meant it was gone by the suns decent.
Whenever her fingers moved someone felt it.

On this last day she rose like the phoenix did,
Her teeth were made of hair and the fire was our sustenance,
The hills did collapse and the valley did rise again,
The colors were all quiet and the tired were arisen.
Iradell
Track Name: Magic Key
Magic Key
On the back of some scarecrow,
You are lighting matches, Oh.
All this endless loneliness,
Will distill everyone you'll miss
To me.

Pay attention crystal ball,
Watch over me to a fault,
For the bathroom tiles break,
With this never-ending weight.
To be clean.

Talk to me through photo slides.
Send minor chords in reply,
For the nervous pacing steps,
are the only real caress,
We need.

Forgive me my body lied,
Out of breath and tongue tied.
Someone, turn for me.
The magic key.

If we die tonight pay attention crystal ball.
Track Name: Twilight, Dusk, and Night
Twilight Dusk and Night
You are the last true thing that will ever happen in my life.
Beautiful and lost,
beautifully undefined.
We fell apart dreaming,
we fell apart tonight.
Our hearts tied together our bodies afraid of our minds.

We have movement without words I'll trade your whisper for mine.
I collect your thoughts and freeze them in time,
Exhaling dreams by some trick of the night,
I fall apart, put back together at the same time...
I never thought that this hope would end,
(The way the stars touch your face, curved around the shade and bends).
Floating in sliver dusk, glimmering.
(The night grips my neck, yet I pray the morning won't begin).
My captured heart laying by your side,
(Trying to beat strong enough for both of our lives,)
To breathe in this twilight, dusk and night.

I am transfixed while you wade through our time,
Move within memory,
Hold and define,
All lost flowers flow from our eyes,
I fall apart, put back together at the same time...
I never thought that this hope would end,
(The way the light touched your face, curves around the shade and bends).
Floating in sliver dusk, glimmering,
(The night chokes my neck, yet I pray the mourning won't begin).
My captured heart laying by your side,
(Trying to beat strong enough for both of our lives,)
To breathe in this twilight dusk and night.

The stars are all crumbling the silence entwines.
Vision and sound combine in our minds.
You're breathing faster as though with a ghost,
I am pacing my breath and holding this ghost.
This twilight is ending now darkness to night,
This night turns to morning these colors combine.
I am moving in pieces a mistake of time.
Hearts tied together our bodies afraid of our minds.
I see you melting of course I drown.
Your tears burst my heart and push me to the ground.
There is no more time I lose sight and sound,
Twilight to dusk, dusk to the ground.
I'm holding you close now to scarred to move,
The dawn stops my breathing and gives it to you.
All the shades of dark in this twilight night,
I fall apart, am put back together at the same time.

The consolations are crumbling.
The night here is crumbling,
While fireflies burn in my heart,
With a Heat of Heaven.
With a Heat of Heaven.
The night is all crumbling,
The night is all crumbling,
The speed of twilight is slow.
Don't go.
Don't go.
Don't go.
