Track Name: Falter
FALTER
Down below the ground
Where the roots twist around
All the gentrified walkways he saw her

Loose and unafraid
She waltzed and she swayed
And she brushed the ash off from her alter

Don’t call to her if you don’t want her

Seven stories high
The wind and the sky
Made his worn heart feel weightless he faltered

Down below the ground
He could hear her sound
Made the dark of his bedroom much starker

Don’t call to her if you don’t want her

Oh where do we go from here
My dear, my dear
The wire so thin and the air unclear
To me, why you would let yourself fall to the sea
When the ocean tides turn inside me

Down below the ground
Where the roots twist around
All the gentrified walkways he saw her
Loose and unafraid
She waltzed and she swayed
And she brushed the ash off from her alter
Don’t call to her if you don’t want her

Don’t call to her if you don’t want her
Don’t call to her if you don’t want her
Don’t call to her if you don’t want her
Don’t call to her if you don’t want her
Track Name: Chosen Names
CHOSEN NAMES

The fire in your eyes
And you’ve already turned to burn your pillars to the ground
There’s no stopping us now
We’ve twisted up our crowns

Get up; stand up
The pain is going to fade away
One day it’s going to fade to grey
Leapt from the pages
You can hear us saying all
The thoughts that once were frayed we call Each other by our chosen names

Stay with me my friend
Where my shadows end

The fire in our eyes
And we’ve already turned to burn our pillars to the ground
There’s no stopping us now
We’ve twisted up our crowns

Get up; stand up
The pain is going to fade away
One day it’s going to fade to grey
Leapt from the pages
You can hear us saying all
The thoughts that once were frayed we call Each other by our chosen names

Stay with me my friend
Where my shadows end
Track Name: Nose Dive
NOSE DIVE

And I leapt
Though the ground was very far
Took a nosedive down
Through the water without sound
Sinking to find out
My this water is so deep
Millennia below our feet

And I lept
And I lept
And I lept
And I lept

Took a nosedive down
Through the water without sound
Sinking to find out
My this water is so deep
Millennia below our feet
Track Name: Crimson
CRIMSON
While we waited
We colored the lines that were jaded
Saw might in the light that ached with all of the shadows it had created
On a fast train
Yearning for something to feel strange
Sipping on something
Drowning the nothing
Pretending that you are not there
When darling you are everywhere

The water it flows around
Broken bottles and needles strewn on the ground
A thousand miles of hollow and empty sounds
But I know where I can go to find
All of the strength that I need to sever ties
And we’re talking about the way it feels to fly
And we’re talking about the way it feels to fly

When the rain it comes we let it just pass by
But I know I am strongest when I cry


Oh we taste the blood
It is splattered on our hands
The walls we thought were white
Are soaked in violence second hand
In the color
Of crimson sharp as steal
This apathy you feel is only making it more real
But sit back and we’ll play this song for you
To help you to sleep through the dream they built for you


Oh no
I won’t let it go
I won’t sit in my comfort and know
That the world around suffers
And comforts a buffer
To keep us from seeing
We’re killing each other
Track Name: Ode to the River
ODE TO THE RIVER
Water it falls from the sky
But the river it never asks why
As her cracked dusty shorelines grow dry
She wades in the wake
Of the silt and the clay
And reflects the grey back to the sky

The mountain tops covered in snow
Begin to breathe and let go
And the water once loose it can flow
To the river to ready
To feel something heavy
And alive in her bed sheets once more

How different the river and I
For I cannot help but ask why
And the sounds the waves make when they break
They shatter my shoreline
Unearth my dark light
Remind me that I am awake

We’re dancing in the moon again
Slipping into the night
Caught up in a yearning
An ineligible churning
It should not be my concern, but the earth it is turning

And we’re broke down on the interstate
Refusing to yield to the mistakes we’ve made
But girl you better find yourself a man to date
To tame this wild and unruly state

Oh, the wild is innate you know
Why would you try to stop me from growing?
Don’t drown in cold water my friends
Track Name: Hear Me Now
HEAR ME NOW

Hear me now
As we scream into the void of doubt
Tossed about and lost without the land
I trace the lines on my hand

And we go down slow
The passengers don’t know
The depths that lie below
The frozen earth beneath the snow

We wake up to shake up the dust
Break and create cause we must
In fallen in trees we trust
In rhythm that rumbles below all the rust

Oh and all of us
Lost in our heads
Trapped and confused cause we don’t understand
Why a band must build a brand
When the music moves through us and water renews us

The earth shakes the dams break
And our thoughts below begin to flow
And we will die again
We will die
