Track Name: Kids
We’re just kids falling out
But you’re convinced we’ll undo it all
we hid this in faith and calm
Your breaths fading now
And so its worth taking every chance we
get give me your hands, your health, your best
we came down again
ive paid my dues

Youre dropped, into
Existing situations
Signaling to, you in foreign tongues that
I wont figure out

Break out
Sent down, to find
still bears no explanation
Creating time, until we
Crash then call to relive flight

I cant undo it all, no
I cant undo it all
Its worth playing out but you know
I cant undo it all, no
I cant undo it all
But the worst, is leaving now

I believe what you saw
You proved me wrong
In the lights and the reaches we
Track Name: Fall
Keep all these starts displaced
Create space
Thrust back but remain
In this state

Feel hearts slow down
We will beat ours, no sound
we value
Track Name: Tap
Width be strong, take hits
granted gray is in love
bridges out, its coming back

sitting back, calling out
under waves and sea beds
divisive blend, all faint glow
breathing all the same

2 days left
I remain
still hyper aware
cross from us
thought i Felt
a hovering monolith

Crashed into a chasm
It covers then recovers
Look for signs, painting over films
It covers then recovers, again
Track Name: Excel
Free up, months or
Maybe, summers
Counting, scenes i’d relive

Time has come, visit all, those grievances
to become, uninvolved, its easier
To just stay numb, risk it all
Ive said my peace, to all who want

(Call) I’ll, borrow, now
(Response) You’re leaving so quickly, just do what you can

(Call) Run, Follow down
(Response) You tell me if you think its really worth it

Cutting all your ties forever
tell me that its worth it
staring at the ceiling thought id really keep my heart intact
calling out to form a place that we had built on

I see you pulling there
getting everyone else lost
Fully numb until i can see it
and our voices drown

Calm Down
Calm Down
Calm Down
Track Name: Alternate
I knew you couldnt be that far, on the
highway countin abandoned cars, now we’re
standing opposite the bells, weaving
Alternate positions, realizing our visions

Its all the same, in weathered spirits we came
Ill take in the statues, filtered reasons out through
Measuring our years and caught on all your fears of
Building costly broken bodies
Its all the same, im not calling your name
Track Name: Belong
you know its going to stay the same
your life is running away from yourself
and every time you think youve changed
it all restarts again. can't you tell that
all the time you spent apart just drove you
further from the ones you love and all the
wasted opportunity weighs on your heart heavily

we treat them like lights on a runway
but we know ourselves,
we know our thoughts
when will our hearts start listening?

we start to break ourselves against the fall
and feel how weak our bodies are
the years it took to build these walls
i know i cant undo it all

but will i ever be happy
like i was when i was 5 years old before i felt the sting of the words
or the weight of my clothes by the time my hope in the world
and myself had begun to tear i knew in my heart
i do not belong anywhere
Track Name: Challenge
All youve wished to feel again
amidst the perceived end,
breaking through you

Trails of black ice
you dont need reasons why
youll process this in time
youll relive every line out
til your familiar states re-align

and all that succeeds
Track Name: Blue Chair
I felt it collapsing

Blocks ring now
from some
Beautifully drawn out song

Feels like stars came in
And light rang out
Just in time, in time

Callouses, Calamities

Slow down
youre standing on your own now
bulding on your old crowns
you'll let this through you

Close now
Youre moving with a glow, how
did you really know, sounds
Like you fooled me

Seen my faith en masse &
Crawled across the fences
Breathing cocoons

Births grasp
seems to firmly chase out
Climb into our hideout
Stay in silence
Track Name: Breaks In Motion
I’m tired of breaking off to
mind myself, it feels like ive tried
this path so long
naturally we separate then
call to remember faces, pray
for breaks to phases, lazy,
don’t believe in anything
this motion can mean

as we took flight
making way for
just falling out
falling out

i cant undo it all
but the worst is gone
and im fine, again

but will you go on to keep
this place with you
but dont feel like you owe anything
and through your life, at last you see
these moments surrounding you & me
did you ever think that we’d leave?
