Track Name: Control
A fracture so great, it woke me so deep
I miss my friends like I miss my sleep
Fiends in my blood and monsters in my brain
So much time to keep...
What's the heavy strain?
And I can't forget
What you meant
Deep in the subconscious of
What we held so sacred above all
Is it true that time is turning you?
You bring out the misery in you

In the days as they passed, it didn't matter so much
The longing ceased and I forgot the touch
Definition didn't seem to mean a thing
The gates appear at an alarming rate,
The walkers try to feed, they can't reciprocate
And I keep all of my forces locked up
Get no scent of my trust,
and it's gone
Silence is a strength
Keep your eyes locked up
and the mind will forget
What it meant
Deep in the subconscious of
What we held so sacred above all
It is true, the time has turned you
You bring out the misery in you
Track Name: A9F5E1 (Seafoam)
Couldn't settle on the breeze
I lost my keys
Didn't know what to do,
Then I found you
In the middle of the snow
Nowhere to go
Clouds forming arrows, and I am home

Rolling through the slush
I'm warm enough
The hangers mess around, all the while
You stay with me
Until morning breathes
I know I can count on you to be who you are through maps and roads

Gentle eyes watching the world as I sit nearby
A world anew brought into view, and you're the reason why

If I feel unsure
Precaution stirs
And you are right there with your lakes
Try as I might,
Well it's alright
All regular is magic and the clouds are fantastic where you are

Gentle eyes watching the world as I sit nearby
A world anew brought into view, and you're the reason why...

I am home
Whenever you are
Track Name: What It Is
Silky white sunspot in auspicious visions, my desicions
Unclear what I'm doing but my mind keeps on chewing up
Things and solutions, this strange institution
I can't tell if you're looking at me
I can't tell if you're looking at me

Words can flow from mouths like rivers or fountains
Or shift like secret springs sitting high in the mountains
Coming to conclusions is a hard solution
Is it made of ringed wood or plastic substitutions?
I don't know what it is I see
I can't tell if you're looking at me

It's nothing I'm familiar with, but if I did
Could we agree it's still alright if we don't see eye to eye?
Keeping the collections, forgetting the reflections
Because I can't tell if you're looking at me
I can't tell if it's just what I want to see

No soul seems to understand my shaky hands
It's no surprise that it doesn't faze their eyes
I'll keep it to myself
Locked doors and dusty shelves
