Track Name: Arrows
It started with your eyes, piercing through my mind.
Back then, I could still defend, attacks of that kind.
It soon was ever clear, there was something more.
As you rested your head, we talked until four.
You make me feel...plain.

Draw it back.
And let it fly.
A thousand arrows in the sky.
Oh, aim them at me.
I am but your casualty.

Your fatal voice, gripped me so tightly.
Redolence in each page, I’m reading nightly.
Arrows now poisoned, and I wish that you knew.
I am weaker to you, and all that you do.
Things are never that plain. You make feel sane.
You make me feel plain and you make me feel sane.
You make me feel...sane.

Draw it back.
And let it fly.
A thousand arrows in the sky.
Oh, aim them at me.
I am but your casualty.

These complex thoughts will consume my mind.
And I tried to be the man of that kind.
Whom she adores.
In her mind, are all the things I lack.
Void of confidence, I’m left a hack.
Whom she will inevitably forget.
In dire need of a “Killing Moon,”
To rescue me when the afternoon,
Rips me from her yet.
In me, she ignites such a strong desire.
If only she would let me light her heart.
On fire, on fire, on fire, on fire.

Draw it back.
And let it fly.
A thousand arrows in the sky.
Oh, aim them at me.
I am but your casualty.
Track Name: Vinyl
Backs against the wall.
Legs outstretched over the bed.
Hair spills over sheets that fall.
Is it all in my head?

Records spinning.
Not a word to be said.
Just the sound of perpetual light.
Is it all in my head?

When the thorn is removed,
And he convinces me I’m not dead.
If the vicar declares it so,
Is it all in my head?

Lying right beside you,
I burn at the touch, fire...
Red

On a stake to tell the truth,
I admit...
That’s it all in my head!
Track Name: Gavin
Hold me down,
The water holds me under,
Lost & gone, I cannot hope to be found.
I cannot, but hope to see the surface,
I cannot find peace.

(You’ll move on,) Just to breathe a little lighter.
(You’ll move on,) Keep the peace that lies beside her.
(You’ll move on,) Just remember now I say,
“Will you find me home today?”
“I miss the way.”

The sun will dawn,
and you will drive away.
Far from here,
where I will find you one day.
High above, I live above you now.
I’m looking down at you.

(You’ll move on,) Just to breath a little lighter.
(You’ll move on,) Keep the peace that lies beside her.
(You’ll move on,) Just remember now I say,
“Will you find me home today?”
“I miss the way.

I left you there.
(But) you left me here.
I stand in cloaks of ink, I fear.
Track Name: Synesthesia
I dreamt we rode into Johannesburg,
But you still wouldn’t hold my hand.
And I woke up screaming, without a plan.
All I heard from the speakers was “This Charming Man”

I try not to share. I try not to care.
I try not to stare.
In silent nights, we share secrets.
But you’re just standing there.

The red on your shoes, the blue on my dress,
the brown in your eyes, that held no distress.
The green on my wrist, the blonde in your hair,
the black from those jeans, these games are unfair.
The gold 'round my neck, wrap me in gray,
with a teal scarf, on a rainy day.
The white of your socks, the crimson tattoo,
my silver bracelet, I do have a clue.

Do I care? Should I share? Probably not.
But I stare, and He’s still there. Hearts to rot.
Sad for no reason,
I don’t really have a clue.
I'm so sick of being alone,
and I don’t know what to do.

(Oh, come home.)
I’m sick of being alone.
(Come home.)
I don’t wanna end up alone.
(Come home.)
When there’s nowhere else to roam.
(Come home.)
When nothing else feels like home.
(We’ll be alone. Come home.)
Track Name: Hejirah
Walking through the desert, with thunderstorms over head.
"Where am I going?" he said.
The words we pray always seem to work out for you instead.
"Where are we going?" they said.

We're all tired of trying to fit in.
Mistakes fuel the headaches, that taste like sin.
We're all trying to let go,
But we're just the kids that no one knows.

All my life there's been nowhere to turn, if there's no need for me, I swear I'll burn.
"Do you really need me?" she says.
He told her, "If I ruled the world, I would just end up losing you."
"This pain is too hard to undo."
"Do you really need me?" she says.

We're all tired of trying to fit in.
Mistakes fuel the headaches, that taste like sin.
were all trying to let go,
But we're just the kids that no one knows.

Forget it, we'll turn out fine our own.
Pack up our bags, we don't need this home.
To tell us what's wrong or tell us what's right.
Our eyes are open tonight.

We're all tired of trying to fit in.
Mistakes fuel the headaches, that taste like sin.
We're all trying to let to go,
But we're just the kids that no one knows.
