Tracklist

Other Light

length: 2:52

Never tell your friends
They'll never understand
Confessions only burn themselves in the fire
Choke on every word
That no one's ever heard
Your sentimental thoughts are strangled and tired

See it in another light
You'll see it working out alright
I know I won't change any mind
As long as their still changing mine

As simple as they can
They're telling you again
What they think you've done is so unbecoming
But you don't have to take
Every old mistake
And always see it as a fall while you're running

Saw it on other light
I saw it work out alright
I know I won't change your mind
As long as they're changing mine

Complicated Questions

length: 3:17
Easy to be taken with everything you're saying
Make us perfect and say it all again
But if every single second's killing
Tell me I'm dreaming
I'll sleep it all away

Tear out this love
Tear up the root
Tear out this love
Tear me from you

You know you can tell me anything you want to
Tell me something that I'd never know
Could be cautious as the words roll over your tongue
I'm stung with sick discovery

Tear me from these complicated questions
Taking all the empty spaces inside me
But complicated answers never did you any justice anyway
Complicated as we are we're going have to burn it all away

Complicated answers take up all the empty spaces inside me
But complicated answers never did you any justice anyway
Complicated as we are we're going to tear out this love

Stay in Shadow

length: 3:16
So cold that you cannot cope
With a frozen heart
I guess we blow apart
I guessed it from the start Stay in shadow
I'll run this world out
Stay in shadow
It's running out of time
Stay in shadow
I want to watch it drown
Stay in this now

Don't say because you can't
Say what we should have been
Don't show what I resent
Don't know cause I forget

So cruel to be so blind
Darkness was on my side
Now that you've come and gone
I know where I belong

Light is leaving as I watch you go
Light is leaving inside of my soul

Good Times

length: 3:56
assistant mixer: Mark Kiczula
Something has stuck in underneath my skin
Eyes all looking in for something within
Somewhere in here

Now everything I say gives this all away
Senses deadened again
Nothing lives today
Not in here

Here in your head

Careful what you're feeling on the inside
You should try to remember
The good times and the high life
Are you feeling alright?

Felt that I belonged
And now I feel that gone
Where it all went wrong
I traced it all along
Back here again

There was something calling me to negativity
Dark covering me
Shrouding every scene I'm cast in

Careful what you're feeling on the inside
You should try to remember
The good times and the high life
Are you feeling alright?

Careful when you're feeling out of you're mind,
You should try to remember
The strong lines in the spot light
Till you're feeling all right

Please answer
I'm calling just to find out
If you could be here for me when I crack
The answer came
I found it buried in the trash there
I saw it stare
I saw it stare
I saw it stare
I saw it stare

Careful what you're feeling on the inside
You should try to remember
The good times and the high life
Are you feeling alright?

Careful when you're feeling out of you're mind,
You should try to remember
The strong lines in the spot light
Till you're feeling all right

Careful what you're feeling on the inside
You should try to remember
The good times and the high life
Are you feeling alright?

Absent Elements

length: 4:01
Everyone plays along
Get them giving or steal the life they're breathing
They'll grow sickened
Take their secret codes and signals
Discover all they know
Keep up the pace now until it all dries up

You'll never find out now
That all these absent elements
Build your comfortable defense stronger still
Like an emptiness

Way too early to consider losing
Vacant staring may discover some reflection
Or may discover none
Just think what you've done
And watch it all add up

Like an emptiness you'll never fill

Thousand Mile Wish

Forgive me if now I wear the face of worry
This time alone could never cause any doubt
But I've been cold too long
Such a strange time to find myself coming down as the rain
With all the holes my love,
To fill up from the middle
This storm could stay all night

So can you stay until we close our eyes
'Til your dreams hold mine
Just stay until we know we tried one more time

'Cause laughing lovers can overcome their closest demons
And they'll go on and they won't let go
They saw something that they know
Has never come so close
Can it stay here for us, for now?

Can it stay until we know ourselves?
I'm torn as I tell
You're the story that I know and fell from
I'm so far into your story I don't know why
We think we're in control
When we lie between the lines

We'll find a line to follow
It's got to show real soon
Or we'll never each this high

We climb a little further
'Cause there's nothing we can't get around together
Further gets colder until nothing was all that I saw around

So we stay until the ground
That we can't come down from splits us away
Maybe stars know why we fall
I just wish they were thinking out loud
Oh, I could wish all night

Conversations

length: 3:35
Something changing
The secret is building
Almost over and somehow seems a beginning
Losing focus
It must be boring
Looking forward never turns out the wrong way

Conversations alone
Complicate us together on our own
Conversations alone
So alone

No one calling
But someone is bound to reply
No one out there
But someone hears every word
I know we're playing the same game
Easing the conscience by

The road was taken
The path led on
Til a new one's left to clear
The signal's given
The show turned on til emotion cut too near

The road was taken
The path led on
The signals given
The show turned on
Still receiving
And still believing
The time that you take isn't gone

Keep us from together on our own
Together on our own

The Last Scene of Struggling

length: 3:16
The static grows and kills the message
Unclear as the wind blows
Thin whispers through all the wreckage
You said you planned to fail
Looking so safe but sorry
So be sure to bang the nail
And seal the exit out

Feel the way through your revelation
Does it feel the way you want to?

Just say it like it's all true
Just tell it like you want to

You bled along the edge of reason
You could have changed your mind into the driest season
Don't explain I know
The lives that you let go
The ones you thought you knew
Held onto deep dark truth

You just say it like it's all true
You just tell it like you want to
Calculate one last scene of struggling
As I'm sinking I'll be looking for you cause you'll know who to blame

But you can't stop the plan cause supply met demand

Panic Attack

length: 3:33
Thought I could fake this thing alright
Thought it could somehow get me by
Watching the doctors as they slide
Needles into my eye

Thought I could finally get around
Laughable symptoms keep me down
Faces I see all keep me blind
And now they're redemption's mine

Now that I can't exchange actions for words
Now that I found these inside fears the worst
Now that I know there's no place left to hide
Can I become all I thought I might

As the leaders who follow the path of whoever was standing round them
Call to say what I'm missing and into a detail they always go
Don't believe them but offer condolences under the circumstances
All too often I'm missing the spirit to fit in so call me out

Thought I could soundly sleep tonight
Positive clear and breathing right
Panic attacks, panic attacks me now
Seems like a fair redemption

Therapy

length: 4:50
Wide awakened out of spinning
Round the safest orbit
You controlled the ordinary
I was grateful for it
Wide awake in the beginning
Trembling after the fall
Only half my world remembers
While the other half revolves

Cut off cause I can't remember
A face that could cut me deeper
But hearts could never leave me bleeding
Becoming the cause and burden
The lesson begins unlearning
And it has never been forgiving my dear

It's all too familiar
I've been here before
I'll carry this weight for your smallest reward
Because I'll continue to break down the door
Just let me in I swear
It will not be like before

Can't think of what to say
I can't think of what to do
I just think I might be losing my mind
Can't stop this agony
Cancel my therapy cause
I just thought of you
And now I feel fine

Collecting the strangest conscience
Apathy returns it's offense
But only after I get moving
Relax and being the change
In time for the newest age
To help me find out what I'm missing in here

One Thing

length: 4:40
Restless tonight
Cause I wasted the light
Between both these times
I drew a really thin line
It’s nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line

If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldn’t that be something

I promise I might
Not walk on by
Maybe next time
But not this time

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

Obvious Heart

length: 4:20
The obvious heart has come to collect
'Cause it tore apart like a tortured insect
The obvious heart waits here to heal
And balances out a subtle reveal

'Cause there's a remedy close
In a familiar dose
This bitter pill to swallow
Is last in the bottle tonight
You're empty it's alright

And full of yourself
No need to explain
To anyone else
Broken in time
Taken what's left
No need to deny
The cause or effect

This heart is not a broken one
But where have all the colors gone
It's still among the lucky ones

This heart is not a broken one
But where have all the colors gone
You're still among the lucky ones
And burning longer than the sun

'Cause there's a remedy close
In a familiar dose
Now you can find out who knows
Soaking the truth that she says
In taken chances

Absent Elements

Everyone plays along
Get them giving or steal the life they're breathing
They'll grow sickened
Take their secret codes and signals

Keep up the pace now until it all dries up

Build your comfortable defense stronger still
Like an emptiness

Way too early to consider losing
Vacant staring may discover some reflection
Or may discover none
Just think what you've done

Like an emptiness you'll never fill

Suffocate

length: 3:56
Talk to me
Can you listen to me now
Do you understand
Can you identify?
But it's as if you seem to make a small effort
But you bend you're bending my mind and you try to
suffocate
And smother me
Covered so I can't breathe
We collapse our weakened hands fall together at once
abandoned
They'll fore you down and strap you in now we agree
and understand
Speak slowly
You gotta get it all out now
What are you saying?
Just remember we will always be here
Just in case you have been waiting
Waiting to show us something or give us some sign
As if you're gonna suffocate, smothering
Covered so you can't breathe
Gently lure your submission
All the while suspicion grows
So be sick of listening
To senile old and staggering naive youth
Pick us up when we fall down

Quicksand

length: 4:18
composer: Rob Gommerman
Slow sinking feeling kills the mood you're conveying
And it pulls me far down below
It might be best if you go
Can it not wait and hope for the best
Will it not stop a while to rest
I need to get up never mind cause I've done enough

The world waits around but I keep slipping and losing ground
Do I not try so hard so good
I can't keep changing just because you think I should

Said all I need to and you don't understand still
Wish you saw picture my mind's eyes are deep and they're cynical
One taken four more kills the pain healing that sore
I've taken what's left I took it all
And now you won't let me forget

The world waits around but I keep slipping and losing ground
Do I not try so hard so good
I can't keep changing just because you think I should

Stop you're talking down
I lack the strength to sit or stand
I lost my self confidence in the quicksand

Not now or ever
Sink slowly my treasure

Complicated Questions

length: 3:17
Easy to be taken with everything you're saying
Make us perfect and say it all again
But if every single second's killing
Tell me I'm dreaming
I'll sleep it all away

Tear out this love
Tear up the root
Tear out this love
Tear me from you

You know you can tell me anything you want to
Tell me something that I'd never know
Could be cautious as the words roll over your tongue
I'm stung with sick discovery

Tear me from these complicated questions
Taking all the empty spaces inside me
But complicated answers never did you any justice anyway
Complicated as we are we're going have to burn it all away

Complicated answers take up all the empty spaces inside me
But complicated answers never did you any justice anyway
Complicated as we are we're going to tear out this love

Tip

length: 3:58
I gave it all I gave it up then
I took it in and got enough but
I try to cancel out
Whatever I can't laugh about

So what does that say
There can't be anyway
I've done my worst and no one knows

One more day to fool them all
One more day to drop the ball
One more day to fade away

Fill a head with sand just to make it better
I had the chance to beat it in but I never
I should have taken it right then

One more day to fool them all
One more day to drop the ball
One more day to fade away

Now you've been taken
You won't stop shaking
Embrace every minute
You're all that's left in it
It's not happening
Some other day you'll fool them all
One more day to drop the ball
One more day to fade away

First Time

length: 4:58
I had never thought,
We were hanging on.
But the fall looks very far,
Staring at the ground.
What flesh will do to you,
Will do to me too.
Be free and on your own,
It's not that simple.
It's not that simple,
It's never that simple.
It feels like the first time,
That we'd fallen behind,
And we faltered too far down.
No one could save us.
It feels like the first time,
And we're standing above them,
And no one can touch us.
The worst is over.

I could say to you,
A bitter word or two.
There's no stopping now,
Just get it out in the air.
Heard it through the fog,
And hurt by it all.
I'd take it back today,
But it's out of my hands.
It's out of of my hands.
But it's out of my hands.

It feels like the first time,
That we'd fallen behind,
And we faltered too far down.
No one could save us.
It feels like the first time,
And we're standing about them,
And no one can touch us.
The worst is over.

Lost in the film again,
All the signs were showing.
Watching a single frame,
When the wind begins.
You're never anywhere,
'Cause you're caught in my weather,
Caught in my weather, every time.

Feels like the first time,
We'd fallen behind,
No use is the other one to wait.
But I can hold on,
As sure as I'm strong.
Get over the faithful yesterdays.

It feels like the first time,
That we'd fallen behind,
And we faltered too far down.
No one could save us.
It feels like the first time,
And we're standing about them,
And no one can touch us.
The worst is over.

It feels like the first time,
That we'd fallen behind,
And we faltered too far down.
No one could save us.
It feels like the first time,
And we're standing about them,
And no one can touch us.
The worst is over.
