Track Name: I See, I Understand
cough up loose dust
empty pens and nails rust
i've turned to ghosts
answers i want most

so pack your bags and breathe the air
take your white coat and comb your hair
i never meant to hold you back
i never want to see you like that

cut off loose ties
bring out your knives
i'm crumbs on your floor
i'm sand by the door

so pack your bags and breathe the air
take your white coat and comb your hair
i never meant to hold you back
i never want to see you like that
stumbling home at night
stumbling home blind

and i've got a short lead
so you can mislead me
i never meant to hold you back
i never want to see you like that
stumbling home at night
stumbling home blind

cut off loose ties
you have time
cut off loose ties
you have time
cut off loose ties
you have time
cut off

so pack your bags and breathe the air
take your white coat and comb your hair
i never meant to hold you back
i never want to see you like that
stumbling home at night
stumbling home blind
Track Name: Salty
fight or flight i already gave my name
i'm out at sea and i'm stuck in this shame
you fall through the cracks, you slip through my fist
i can't taste anything when everything is so damn salty
la, la, la, la

this is no dead hose
we'll beat it in the dirt
i'll take all the blame
i will go first

time and place, it's all of the same
you're a slippery fish and i'm a wind-up game
the ghosts come out and they call my name
i can't flee cause i know it'll come back to haunt me
la, la, la, la

this is no dead horse
we'll beat it in the dirt
i'll take all the blame
i'll fake all the shame
i will go first
Track Name: Black Phone
blind eyes, blind eyes, blind eyes/come clean this time, come clean this time, come clean this time/white lies, white lies/it's the whitest lie whitest lie it's the whitest lie whitest lie

blind eyes, blind eyes, blind eyes/oh deny oh deny oh oh deny/white lies, white lies/it's the whitest lie whitest lie it's the whitest lie whitest lie

ohhhh x2

blind eyes, blind eyes, blind eyes/why don't you try, why don't you try, why don't you try/white lies, white lies/it's the whitest lie whitest lie it's the whitest lie whitest lie
Track Name: Underwater Weather
i'll take my time
you give your line
i'll do better next time
i'm in a sea of my own grief
i'll do better i'm fine

all the times and all the times this year
allison the culprit allison the cure
stay the year
i'll take my fears
all the times and all the fights this year
i'll take mine

i'll drop the score
forget who's turn
who owes who this time
i'm in a sea of my own grief
i'll do better next time

all the times and all the times this year
allison the culprit allison the cure
stay the year
i'll take my fears
all the times and all the fights this year
i'll take mine

i'm a sea a sea a sea
of my grief my grief
i'm a sea a sea a sea
oh my grief
i'm a sea a sea a sea
of my grief my grief
all the times and all the times this year
all take my fears
all the times and all the times this year
all take mine
Track Name: Three of Wands
i see migrating eyes
an inferior mouth that speaks too loudly
and i am under the...
don't we breathe in the same air?
i think you're lost down there

i don't need you to tell me
everything that you think about me
and i am under the gun
but i am getting along

i feel a mouthful of sand
an inferior hand that holds too strongly
and i am under the...
the bottom is where
you tend to feed from
i don't need to feel the pressure down there

i don't need you to tell me
if you do or don't think i'm pretty
i don't need your dark, dark energy
i don't need your any any anything
and i am under the gun
but i am getting ahh
but i am getting on
but i am getting along

i don't need you to tell me
everything that you think about me
and i am under the gun
but i am getting ahh
but i am getting on
but i am getting along
but i am getting along
but i am getting along
but i am getting along
Track Name: Resurrect
is it my age, a chalked up phase
i don't see past the table these days
before i said i want it...
take too much
greed or luck
am i am i green enough?

before i said i want it, i should know what i get
put it in a box and give it a girl's name and
leave it on the shelf next to other things i don't need
and i'll call it out

is it okay, is it enough
am i am i good enough
before i said i want it
i should know what i get
put it in a box and give it a girl's name and
leave it on the shelf next to other things i don't need
and i'll call it out

it is my age, a chalked up phase
i don't see past the table these days
before i said i want it, i should know what i get
put it in a box and give it a girl's name and
leave it on the shelf next to other things i don't need
i don't need i don't need i don't need i don't need i don't need i don't need
Track Name: Beaches
it's on the cusp of time
i'm tongue tied
we wait in morning light
i'm so tired

and it's not in my head and it's not in my
and it's not in my mind in my mind

i wanted to be like them
i was so wrong
i can't go anymore where i don't belong

and it's not in my head and it's not in my
and it's not in my mind in my mind
i'm so tired

don't speak
oh, let it be
don't speak
oh, let it be
all i see, patterns in the trees
don't leave
oh, let it be
don't leave
oh, let it be
all i see, patterns in the sea
Track Name: Fear
leave me here/give me back all those years/i won't hide, i can't fight, i won't lie/we're high and dry

i get so lost when i'm alone but we go so far down to the bone/ didn't i
didn't i, didn't i/gave all i tried

leave me here/let go of your fears/i won't hide, i can't fight, i don't lie/we're high and dry

i get so lost when i'm alone but we go so far down to the bone/didn't i
didn't i, didn't/gave all i tried
Track Name: Dunes
we are in for the return
it is the wrong turn
we're on a one-way
no one reciprocates
no one hesitates to tell you how they've made it

just cause i don't talk aloud
don't mean that i don't have a thing to say about it
just cause i keep it to myself
don't mean that i'm not thinking about it
just cause i don't scream aloud
don't mean that i don't have a thing to say about it
just cause i don't speak of myself
don't mean that i'm not thinking about it

i cannot get a word
when all the things you say
nothing to do with me
the things that shape us
the things that make us
overtake us
compensate us
we're in a straight line
it was a fake spine
we had a false line
you hear me this time

when we want to revert
it is going to occur
it is a long way
no one reciprocates
no one hesitates to tell you how they've made it

just cause i don't talk aloud
don't mean that i don't have a thing to say about it
just cause i keep it to myself
don't mean that i'm not thinking about it
just cause i don't scream aloud
don't mean that i don't have a thing to say about it
just cause i don't speak of myself
don't mean that i'm not thinking about it

i cannot get a word
when all the things you say
nothing to do with me
the things that shape us
the things that make us
overtake us
compensate us
we're in a straight line
it is a fake spine
we had a false line
you hear me this time
you hear me this time
you hear me this time
you hear me this time
you hear me this time
you hear me this time
you hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
you'll hear me this time
Track Name: Little Wolves
i'm pulled a thin thread, i am unraveling
bird on a thin wire, oh fly or expire

do i fail pride/do i feel anything/do i hold too hard/do i have anything

alone we are again
words have no meaning
we sink or we swim
what's that you say again

do i fail pride/do i feel anything/do i hold too hard/do i have anything

are we past those times
are we past those times
are we past those times
are we past those...

i'm pulled a thin thread
i am sinking in
words that you say again
are we back to the beginning

are we back
are we back
are we back
are we back home
