Track Name: Ether
We are drifting in spaces between asleep and awake.
As our hands stretch out in the hope of a closer touch.

Our secrets are running wild; shadows and afterthoughts.
A slip of the tongue has let loose that which won't be caught.
Inhibitions are off the cards; gambled with runaways.
We're shedding skin in the interim, 'til night resolves to dawn.

We are like two ghosts in the morning as we escape the light.
Not sure if we should run for cover, we stayed up all night.

Our secrets are running wild; shadows and afterthoughts.
A slip of the tongue has let loose that which won't be caught.
Inhibitions are off the cards; gambled with runaways.
We're shedding skin in the interim, 'til night resolves to dawn.
Track Name: Questions
I'm trying to make this cohesive, I'm trying to sound so sure.
If my foundations weren't stripped away, this house would be secure.
But you built me better than that, and I know it wasn't eternal.
I still remember the call on the warehouse floor.

And I hope my hope shone through.
And I hope I'm strong for the rest of you.
I hope my hope shone through.
And I hope I'm strong for the rest of you.

I don't know if it justifies the means.
And I don't know if things were as they seemed.
These old thoughts and memories, old haunts and forgotten times.
I hope that it was the life you dreamed.

I don't want to talk about how things turned out, how chances slipped away; it was out of my god-damned hands. I don't to think about how much time we could have had, or how we last fought and how I wished it was over.

"Oh my child, this war has taken a toll on you you'll never know. You don't need to ask how I'm feeling."

I'll do the dishes, I'll do the chores, just have faith in me, have faith in me. I'll do whatever, I'll please them all, just have faith in me, have faith in me.

I don't know if it justifies the means.
And I don't know if things were as they seemed.
These old thoughts and memories, old haunts and forgotten times.
I hope that it was the life you dreamed.
Track Name: Bonfire
Like smoke breath it in, and wear it like a second skin.
Let is coat those lungs and guide the words that stem from your tongue.

It's a new addiction, a crush, a release with a mind of its own.
It's a new affliction, there's no time for small talk just let it burn.

Like smoke breath it in, and wear it like a second skin.
Let is coat those lungs and guide the words that stem from your tongue.

Exhale, breath it out, and clear your head of your self doubt.
Let it stoke those coals, and feel your frozen body thaw.

It's a new addiction, a crush, a release with a mind of its own.
It's a new affliction, there's no time for small talk just let it burn.

Breathe it out, and let it slip, and escape through your fingertips.

Let it burn.
