Track Name: Will
You run with
The legs of the wind
The eyes of a victim

Claw me off like ancient cloth
Make for the end

Make sure you're doing your best
Make sure you're doing your best
With a fury like no other I will tear you in to ribbons of red

A howling distance
Over my bed
A make shift silence
Claw me off like
Ancient cloth
Make me yours again

Make sure you're doing your best
Make sure you're doing your best
With a fury like no other I will tear you in to ribbons of red
Over fields and suburbs, captivate you

I will

Hold me closer
Track Name: Graves
We make oaths up to a god we don't believe in
Make a choice to forge our lives around a crumbling foundation
Every day, when we wake up, assume the family position
Have a child and let it eat you from the inside, from the inside

I take your hand in mine
You turn the lights out

Your eyes are graves to me and I'm falling in

Empty plates and tired mouths surround the table
What we were, is just a myth, a stupid joke, another fable
Tying knots, just to break them in a violent display of
How we know, that we've been fooled by what we thought
Was something real, something real

I take your hand in mine
You turn the lights out

Your eyes are graves to me and I'm falling in

I can't bear to say your name or even glance in your direction
All I have is your abuse when all I need is your protection
There's a weight around my finger and it;s dragging me beneath
I'm letting go

I take your hand in mine
For the last time
Track Name: Weeper
Restless, why am I so restless?
Just curtains to fling open, to sights of suburbian lows
Answer me, why wont you answer me?
You sit with my blood and bone, your fingers and head look swollen

You are no match for, the life I gave
When you grow up strong, will you look back at me?

Cold, it's always so cold in
This house that I did not choose, but otherwise what would we do?
And your tiny eyes scream mother, what have you done to me?
I'm bound to a life not lived, a slave to my own existence

You are no match for, the life I gave
When you grow up strong, will you look back at me?

We can't go on like this

You are no match for the life I gave
When you grow up weak, will you look at me?
Track Name: Patient
Moving waves, on the screen, of a life support machine
Making shapes, in her sleep, it's getting worse it;s getting worse
I can fit, in between, when she laughs and when she bleeds
I am harder to defeat, they say it's easier, easier for me

I don't believe it

He's been there with his fist, running white around my wrist
He deserves more than this, it's getting worse, it's getting worse
It's been days, maybe weeks, he's trading everything for me
An empty car in the street
A sinking ship, a sinking ship, a sinking

I don't believe it
I've been there, with my fist
Running white around your wrist
You deserve, more than this
It's getting worse, it's getting worse
It's been days, maybe weeks
You're trading everything for me
An empty car in the street,
A sinking ship, a sinking ship

It's never worth it
But we can't help it
Track Name: Don't Let The World Swallow You
Something's killing you, drowning out the laughter
An obstacle that's laying you low
It could be oceans, mountains or walls of fire
You don't care but frankly you don't know
Every phone call pokes holes in the membrane
That wraps itself between the two of us
The dialect of angels is nails on a chalkboard
To those of us who think we are in love

Don't let the world swallow you

I dine in silence on bread ground from hardship
The easier it is the more it tastes like ash
I've been waiting on a future promised years ago and
Living in a house that wasn't built to last
In your eyes I'm just a gap that not too long ago
Was filled by someone you could lean on
Yet in mine, in legion you are anguish
A beautiful passenger alone

Don't let the world swallow you
