Track Name: Let It Go
i see you there, dwelling in your mind
but i sympathize with your indifferent smile
you seem so cold, so afraid to let yourself go
but i can feel there's more to you than you'd want to be
set you free

words, pictures of imagination cloud within your dreams
locked away from the glaring vision of consciousness it seems
you can't see what the world believes you to be
but genius is stagnation to those who can't see from afar
it's what you are

look out my window, and i'll tell you what you will see

dreams of immortality, and dreams of solidarity
dreams of love and dreams of pity
dreams of courage, dreams of sitting
placidly by you for all eternity

i see you there, dwelling in your grave
lost to vast unconsciousness what boldness might have saved
you seem so cold, had not but one finger touched your soul?
what was once a light inside my heart ceases to glow
let it go
Track Name: Tomorrow
i'm gonna let you down
but that won't stop me from loving you anyhow

i'm gonna let you go
but i'll still be your property tomorrow

every time i see your face, i just keep falling
back into your embrace, i think i'm crawling
and what do you expect me to do
now that i've found my way back to you
what does it mean for me to do what i can
when all that i hold dear to me has slipped through my hands
Track Name: End Transmission
oh, you see, my dearest friend
our troubled lives approach the end

they say the lord, he wants us dead
they placed a price upon our heads

their eyes are white - their hearts turn black
they march as one, none looking back
darkness pursues, no time to run
can only turn our heads and face our setting suns, now

our godstruck world shrouded in grey
but for every minute of the darkest night, the sun prepares the day
Track Name: Beneath My Eyes
yesterday i spent the hours in bed
sketching scenes inside my head
there was one with you and me
and i thought that i...

i've got bags beneath my eyes
'cause i don't get any sleep
at night i stand by the windowsill
making lists of things.. things you gave to me

i am a desert, vast and bare
i.. are you listening? are you still listening?

i've got bags beneath my eyes
'cause i don't get any sleep
at night i close my eyes and pose
existential queries

i can't stop from wondering how i got here
and why i'm so afraid
but now you tell me it's all over
and i guess i should have stayed
the past has got me worried about the future
but i don't have time for it now
so today i'll sit in my room
and count the hours away

and tonight i'll sit alone
staring wide-eyed at the phone
thinking over what i should've said
over and over and over and over and...

i've got bags beneath my eyes
'cause i don't get any sleep
at night i still hear the empty bedsheets rustling
without you without you without you without you...

i can't stop from wondering how i got here
and why i'm so afraid
but now you tell me it's all over
and i guess i should have stayed
the past has got me worried about the future
but i don't have time for it now
so today i'll sit in my room
and count the hours away
Track Name: No Words
sometimes i feel like my words are slipping away from me
and when i'm around you i have nothing to say to you
inside my head all the world makes sense in a funny way
but when i tried to tell you about what you and i should be

well i knew not what to say
and i knew not how to say it
and i couldn't even tell you why
no, i couldn't even tell you why
i knew then that all of my breaths were in vain
oh, i thought it would never come, no

but now it's all changed, the world's in my hands
it's taken so long now, but i can't complain
if i'd given in, my sun would implode
but now it is burning - it's burning again

well i don't think that i've ever known for sure that the world is the way it's supposed to be
you've always seemed to be far beyond my boundaries
and in my time i have read some books and i've learned a little bit about the way things are
but it all seemed to escape me when i saw you smiling up at me

you told me what to say
and you told me how to say it
when you looked into my eyes
oh, when you looked into my eyes
i knew then that all of my troubles were gone
oh, i thought it would never come, no

but now it's all changed, the world's in my hands
it's taken so long now, but i can't complain
when i was with you, my mind had no words
now it may not have many, but baby they're true
if only i'd known, all of these years
you'd unlock the door behind all of my fears
if i'd given in, my sun would implode
but now it is burning - it's burning again
