Track Name: Scud Running
It’s the floor I’m reaching for, a breath beneath the surface. That weighs me down, it cuts me from the line that you’ve been reeling. The sails are slashed we’re fucked for sure, I’m waiting for the breakers. If there’s a light from that beacon I can count the distance, in this thick hazy pea soup fog. It’s a long way away.

I can count the distance from where we should be- from where I thought we’d be by now, I can see it in the clouds. We break faster than pressure in a fold.

It’s the floor I’m reaching for, a breath beneath the surface. The sails are slashed we’re fucked for sure. I’m falling starboard, I’m falling over
Track Name: First as Tragedy, Second as Farce
I’m aimless amongst connoisseurs. I’m a stranger to these troubles - Why can’t I pick you up? You’re sheer like the cliffs that you jump off from, I watch you closer than a seabird. You picked me up again from the bottom of my bay.

My sun soaked skin, it’s a subtle feeling to find yourself in the place we’ve all been missing. I missed you more when we were alone. I miss the breakers breaking everything I’ve known. I missed you more when we were alone. I miss the breakers breaking the skin right off my bones. You’ve held on. I’ve been around you’ve been remiss end your own gains in lieu of this. You’ve held on. It’s in the past I can’t remember because it reminds me we’re an act -we’re a farce. It’s better that we don’t. If the God’s are fair then I am fucked. I am my father’s son
Track Name: Prolonged Exposure
Let’s leave our heads for a day, when you got sick you said.

Let’s leave our heads for a day, when you got sick you said to wait for it to change. But it grew when you left and I’m stuck with this weight on my chest -

I’m betting on the breakers. I’m stuck with myself and the fact that I couldn’t see

through a thirteen year old lens, which lends myself to believe that I’m breathing in the same sea that you breathed. The cancer that you fought, it brought a lot of pain. I’m itching at an old wound. I’m stitching up the seams.

I get comfort from tales that I’ve heard when you’d grab your girl and say,

“I love you more than dawn on the sea. Oh what you mean to me.” It’s a far cry to say I got away.
Track Name: Dialect Of...
You fled the first when you got wind of reason. I can’t blame you, I’d do the same if I could.

You found forms, found ways that I have fled. I lost track when you walked in and you said, “It’s far fetched, it’s a plan that you have engrained in your small head.”

I found forms, found things you can’t hide. You found love in lust I’d rather not guess. You’ve gone foreign now. I dredged dirt straight out of the bay. I found words that you couldn’t say. You’ve got nerve to say I won’t hold you.
Track Name: Old Souls
Cold smoke in our lungs and footprints in tall grass. We’re old souls in new skin, dragged in from the cold. Fresh tracks trace past our old ugly bitter ways. You finally found all the courage you needed to say.

We’re old souls in new skin, but far from the place you’d thought we’d begin, the place that you’d thought I’d give in. We’re old souls in new skin, but far from the end - just waiting, waiting to begin. You can rearrange me now. Put my feet back on the ground, put the blood back in my veins.

I saw your scared stare sinking into me, but I was bound by weights so I could not tread in a rising sea. We’re desperate now with our latent fears rising from the wake. You carry me over. You carry me through.
Track Name: Glass, Irony
I noticed a shift in her stare. As our eyes lock I’m musing, tell me, you’re waiting for me to say. “This place is too small for all of us. We could be there by now.” If you want to try we could pass it off as a change in a hopeless night, a tick a tickless clock. I can’t help but thinking we’d look great with our drinks and brushing off the weeks. So let’s keep swimming to our bodies and we’ll meet. We’ll forget our foreign minds. So lets keep swimming to our bodies and we’ll meet between our foreign minds and broken bodies. We’ll meet between our foreign minds while our tired eyes stay shut. Tease for the night, I get it now. Can’t say enough, it’ in your eyes. It’s hard to hide. It’s hard to find. Out of sight in dire straits. It’s hard to hide in dire straits.
Track Name: Absurd Walls
Go be with the ones you’ve been missing. It takes a chunk out of me to see you leave. I never thought that the wind would be hissing your name into the weeds.

It’s time that I head east. There’s a number that I have inside my head. Am I the halyard that can’t hold you up? When you get there, I’ll keep up.

I fucked up you know where. You know that I’ve been missing our bed. I’ll go back to the absurd. Go be with the ones you’ve been missing. It takes a chunk out of me to see you leave. When you get there, I’ll keep up.
Track Name: Thalassa
We gave our bodies. You made something feel whole again inside my feeble body. I want to be good, I want this right. Let’s flood this over. I’m glad you found clarity in ambiguity. I’ve been awake, while you’ve been away.
Track Name: Runner's Body
You found a line out while we all watched dumbfounded. Was there a time when you had your life before the lay? Was there a time when you thought you’d bend but never break? It’s not an excuse, it’s not the way that you convey.

It’s the bones in your body - the way that you have said I’m fine for fleeing now.

You found it, your life long province. The wasted years on us reflect the disconnect between. You can’t defend it because you know that I know you. You know that I’ve always considered you my blood. Greyscale today when you’ve always painted purpose, when you always stood with poise. Skins falling off the wolf - the skins falling off. You grab back, you barely made it out.Turn face, can’t stand to hear the shout.

You found a line out while we all watch dumbfounded.The wasted years on us reflect the disconnect between. You can’t defend it because you know that I’ve always considered you my blood. They’re your flaws you made.You persist in only external blame. You admit to breaking away.
Track Name: Halcyon Days
Bare bones in the flesh, bad blood in our veins. When you speak I hear the ice

crashing in from waves, waves that I gave up on. You couldn’t hear the sound.

You couldn’t hear the waves, the ways that I gave up on.

I should leave it - I should leave it alone for now. I couldn’t find your face - I couldn’t find you. If you are a state than I can’t maintain your boundaries.

If I am the scape, than you are the pedal that keeps falling off. We keep falling loose. I keep falling off. I keep falling loose. If I am a city, than you are my center. I can’t avoid you - we keep fighting waves.
