Track Name: Past Lives (If it Works)
So I guess this is where I came from
And I guess this is where I'll be
I don't know who or what I've been waiting for
But I always love the company
Come down I'm in my room
I can't assume who or what will find my stagnant mind
Come down I am surrounded by the sound of my mind racing
So we cope with the complications
We resolve it and make it right
But I know this is what I came for
And I've never trusted in hindsight
And I keep reliving my past lives until I can be recalled
So if this works I'm sold
Track Name: Birthday Party
It all started fine
With a kiss on the cheek
Has it been a while now?
It's been a streak
Whose coming? Who's going?
There's hands in my hair
It's been too long now
My thoughts everywhere
(And I'm like)

(Oh no!) How am I gonna make it out of this time?
Confidence comes easy
When I instigate and actuate
Alright
Maybe I'll see you later in the back of your apartment
Where I will just sit quiet
Wondering if you're suspecting anything
Oh will I let it show?

Glitter and gangs wait outside the room
Do I fit the role my drunk lips assume?
Now I could care for sentimental swings
But boisterous, rowdy, temperamental things
Roll off my cuff like

(Oh no!) How am I gonna figure out of this time?
I get off too easy
Faking that I'm making people feel alright
Maybe your whiskey kisses
Could animate and escalate it tonight
Not too young to try it
Wondering if I keep saying anything
Would it save your afterglow?

(Oh no!) How am I gonna try to hide it this time?
I took truth too easy
When you celebrated I negated everything
Maybe I'll see you later
In the back of this apartment
In my head's a riot
Wondering if I'm reflecting anything
Oh I think you know
Track Name: Falter Ego
Feeling like the exoskeleton of a life of someone else
All my friends are leaving and I'm wondering what's happening tonight

If you'd want me to stay I'd adapt to you alone
So all your friends can tell you lies from someone else

I don't think so

Please don't tell me why
I'm supposed to take it all in stride
All that you want and everything you like
It happens all for pride

So if you are encountering how many things are flawed in my disguise
When all my friends are exhibitions my seditions catch them by surprise

So if they don't come back I wont care
I'm fine alone
And all your friends will tell your lies to someone else

Maybe its time

Please don't tell me how
I'm supposed to shake and disavow
All that you want and anything a like
It happens over time

All my friends think I'm so distant
Now I know why
I think I could just freak out on anyone around
Track Name: Parallels
We'd be fine
If this could be mine
Oh, don't you know
It's been a while since we let it show

We'd decline
If you could provide
Oh, I don't care how long it takes to grow
So I'm aware but

(Hey!) I don't feel the way I know
And if you could only stay
Would you wanna let it go?
(It's alright)

We'd succeed
If we could agree
But oh, I don't spare anything after you go

Could you believe in someone like me
Oh, I don't share anything I set aglow
So I don't care now

(Hey!) I don't feel the way I know
And if you could only stay
Would you wanna let it go?
(It's alright)

So you keep time to see
If we don't cool off
All I need is time to retreat
So I won't lose my mind

I don't feel the way I know
And if you could only stay
If you wanna let me know
Track Name: Something to Lose
Trace it from my eyes
I think there's something
And so many ways I'd like to go
When I reel it in my daily daydream
I just fall apart

I think you ought to know
Sometimes I've been feeling I could stray
Oh, I don't mind
If I vary the routine
I'll know that I'll see it through

Shake me from the start
I think you're something
And so many ways I'd like to know
Dispute and depart
My baby's leaving just like me

I think you ought to know
Sometimes I've been feeling like a stray
Oh, I don't mind
If I wait to intervene
I'll know that I needed to

I think you ought to know
Sometimes I've been feeling I could sway
Oh, I don't mind
Though I'm leaning in between
I'll go 'till I see it through

And I need it too
And I'll believe it
Track Name: Slow Talk
Little lover are you wired waiting for a night?
Oh, no
Have you felt it seeping in?
Is another feigned desire softening your edge?
Oh, no
Will it pass this time?
A lonely mind can't tell the difference
Only a heart knows
Little love trepidation suffocates your head
Has it got you spinning now?
Come down
Little sweetheart you're inspired
By a thought, a time, a place
A dream you reach, a glow
That you never need to grow
A lonely mind won't mind won't feel it coming
Only a heart knows
Track Name: High Rise
Over my head
I can forget
If it's enough for two
I won't regret

I know that if I try
All my fears will subside
If I can recall then I can evolve

And I won't stop dreaming
I don't believe what I'm seeing
If it's a result a feeling in motion
I won't be wrong

Closer to a view
Slower to choose
Could it be enough to proceed?
Or could it be what I need

I know that we'll be fine
When all our seams are aligned
Now I can remain but I can't refrain

But I won't stop dreaming
I don't believe what I'm seeing
If it's been a part of my scheming tonight I'll know

And I won't stop dreaming
I don't believe what I'm seeing
Through all of my fleeting emotions, I'm right where I belong
Track Name: Night Lines
No. You gotta take your time
Gotta keep it slow if you cut the wire
You say I'm alright and you're fine
No. We'll try it
Taking the light
Only after
All that I want
Aligns now
No. If it falls apart
Better keep control
Better feed the fire
So let's take our time
While you're mine
No. We're alright
Chasing the night
Slowly. Faster
All that I want to find out
I'll catch you on the way down
Track Name: Until We Know
If you don't mind leaving with me
If you could stay what would you need
I tried to go but was that enough
When I all I could do was call it off

All my time waited on proof
That all my life was fated from youth

Oh take your time
Take what you need
Stake what you do with certainty
When all I pursued was redefined
Everything all aligned

All my time wasted on proof
That all my life was jaded by youth
All my mind is sated by you
Through all my strife it's always true
