Track Name: 25
Everything’s heading south
so tear those pages out
to show we're worlds apart

This scene is not something I want to be a part of
I won’t wait here to know what you’ve done

I’ll speak to you once
I wear those right rags
I guess it’s easy to get caught up in the cold hearted chase of being adored

we’re wanderers through all of this
we’re wanderers, it’s thunderous
we’ll wonder

If we fight again is it worth all this
We fought again, was it worth the risk?
And I can’t shake off a fucking thing
We’ll kick it in, we’ll kick it in

Is this, worth the, dis-chord
Track Name: Votary
With wondering eyes and
darkening skies, i will try not to notice
that you won’t face it again

It’s all enough
i’m sick of backing down
if we all stood up
and left this tired town

We’re breaking up time
with these fictional signs
and i’ll try not to notice that
we’re stationed in spaces between
the words we say but don’t mean

We set ourselves up
but want to
we’re always tearful
We tear ourselves up
to face this all around us

The pieces that will fall to me
In places I have travelled to / In places I have yet to see
They’ll flow home

Capturing the past mistakes
And feeling far too close to say
Just step back

We set ourselves up
but want to
we’re always tearful
We tear ourselves up
to face this all around us
Track Name: Solitude
This definitions old,
But the power’s young

When I try and spit this out

Were we better then?
News just in
Solitude in sedation
Works both ways.

When I try and spit this out,
It’s just the shift in time I doubt

Lets give it in,
News just in
Just want to connect to feel something
If that’s careless
Lets play it safe
Moving on

These power grids
Bolt straight in
Just want to connect to feel something
If that’s careless
You could say it’s staged
Moving on
Track Name: Old Ground
You're testing old ground now
We're feeling no bounds at all, so here we are
and this is all cared for.

You get enough? to get it off your chest now?
Scared of nothing, take it all.

Breaking off back into tired arms

Don’t look, don’t force it
don’t look, just breathe in
these hands, will build up
brick walls, to shield us
from words, don’t listen
It’s dumb luck that it's locked in

You get enough? to get it off your chest now?
Compare nothing, brace for more.
Breaking off, back into
Back into tired arms,
Back into
You don't notice things anymore

Looking back won't break us
Looking forward to meet our makers
Looking back won't phase us
Looking forward to meet our makers

Breaking off, back into
Back into suffered arms
Back into now
Track Name: Kepler
In the foundations of hope
We are disfigured
And if the years are all wrought
The experiences can’t be untaught

Hold on to this for a better day
In awe

If this is all she wrote
Then the tide has gone
I’m washed out for good
For the first time

Did it show?
Do you see?
Did it show?
Do you see what I see?

Hold on to this for a better day
In awe

Don’t forget us
No don’t forget us

Disfigured
Track Name: The Hopeful
Disregarded and noted
i guess it's ok
to take a leap into defeat
to regulate ourselves

so think it over
resentment standing proud

we hear the sounds
of the distant echoes

we hear the sounds again
break it up to digest
lost in the beat of your pulse
solace for the wounded

so think it over
and then make me proud
just come over
try it on for size

we're all carrying hope for the hopeful, for the ones that won't (give up)
