Track Name: Understanding The Depths
The dust and debris collapsed to the oceans and the seas
It flashed and erupted, the gods crippled with laughter
And i was powerless to pretend that i wasn't in control
Of all the cities that glittered this was the city that glowed
How could you choose water over wine?
When there’s so much to spare
Save your breath tonight’s not done with you yet
You can’t understand the depths until all you know becomes unknown

Who are we if not the walls that surround us?
Nothing is ever safe, nothing is ever clear
Who are we if not the skin that binds to our bones?
Nothing is ever safe, nothing is ever clear

Cue the sun, the siege has passed, the tide has spoken and his words fall fast
Will I ever learn before I wash ashore
Or is this a scar that I've grown to adore

Who are we if not the walls that surround us?
Nothing is ever safe, nothing is ever clear
Who are we if not the skin that binds to our bones?
Nothing is ever safe, nothing is ever clear

You can’t resent the road that gave you something to lose
We’re just the sum of the paths that we came through

So hold your breath like it’s everything you have
Let it divulge and digest cause it’s running out too fast
It’s like floating on an open door or watching waves from underwater
So let’s pretend that we, let’s pretend that we understand the depths
Of what’s buried in our chests
What we've evolved to hide behind the sternum or is it pride?
It’s a power you can’t ignore, spend a lifetime searching for
But will we ever know?
Track Name: What Are You Waiting For?
Was this year just a test?
Something came and something went
From where I was to where I am
I know that I won’t let you down
And I’ll take all the blame

What are you waiting for?
It’s been right here all along
So open your hands and grasp it

I've made a horrible mistake
I got the message too late
And i knew it all along
Yet i let it come undone

I hate that we aren't watching the stars
Fall from the sky tonight

What are you waiting for?
It’s been right here all along
So open your hands and grasp it

You said you never want to do it again
But then i see you coming back around
This broken parachute is holding out
So cut the cord and let me hit the ground
For just a moment everything made sense

What are you waiting for?
It’s been right here all along
So open your hands and grasp it
Track Name: Doing Better
Someday I won’t need this crutch that carries me
And I’ll be so complete but these thoughts weigh me down
Cripple my hopes and dreams, please just leave me be
No stay and watch me beg and plead
Tell me what you need, tell me everything

Am I only the air when you need to breathe?

Save me from this long night alone and let me start again
For when I wake up and see you lying next to me
I'm blessed with a cure or a scent that never really fades

It’s a vicious cycle, it spins
An eye for an eye, not of the beholder it was in
But things only get worse and I only meant well
At least I thought I did

Am I only the air when you need to breathe?
Am I only a window when you, when you need to see?

It never really fades, it never really fades away
When all you know is nothing at all
And the strings that hold you are bursting undone
You can’t pretend that it’s right when it’s completely wrong
It’s wrong

Save me from this long night alone and let me start again
For when I wake up and see you lying next to me
I'm blessed with a cure or a scent that never really fades
I’d hoped it never come to this
A simple slap on the wrist surely would suffice enough
And take me back to the start
Track Name: In My Head
Can’t you see what I've done to you
You’re hopelessly, endlessly intoxicated by this aerial view

You know this isn't what i want but the spark of life i see in you
Then ignites in me and takes me away to a better place

It’s all partly consequent
Medicate in self defence
Gone again in a matter of breaths
It’s all in my head
And then I'm laid back down again
And the lights begin to bend
Hear the whisper in my hear
It’s all in my head

Don’t you say I'm totally indifferent to either or either way
I've tried to say, communicate your holy words but they came to late

Can’t you see what you've done to me
I'm hopelessly, endlessly intoxicated by this reality

It’s in my head

Would you say, you don’t see me
Would you say, you don’t need me
In the end let’s pretend all I did was make it easy
But suddenly I'm awake
Suddenly, suddenly I'm awake, I'm awake
Track Name: Hellish Conditions
This kingdom comes at a price
And we've overpaid with goodbyes
Buyer beware if we've gained your trust
Attention brings out the best and worst in
Your attention brings out the best and worst in us

It’s like a wedding and a funeral on the same day
We’re singing songs that we've written at our own wake
It’s like we’re waiting for a mountain to fade
We’re falling back, back into our old ways

You know who I am, I know you are
An atom bomb, a dying star

So here’s one for all of you
Here’s one for everything we didn't do
Too old to die young
Too close not to see this through
So here’s one for all of you

How can you know what you want?
But not what to do
How can you live a life that wasn't meant for you?

So here’s one for all of you
Here’s one for everything we didn't do
Too old to die young
Too close not to see this through
So here’s one for all of you
