Track Name: sacrifice
i can't say why it's you i don't love
it would be easier if i could
can't figure out how to follow the charts
the diagrams to make everything fit

i don't know how to be in love
to sacrifice everything i want
i'm not that good at the goodbye
not that strong enough to see it die

so now i'm gone / and you'll move on

i kick around / take blow by blow
'till i stumble on something comfortable
can't stop my mind from racing on
it weighs out every single possibility

i don't know how to be in love
to sacrifice everything i want
for just a kiss / or to belong
myself resigned to be somebody to hold

but i wanted out / so now i'm left alone
Track Name: bide
everyone here thinks they're so damn special
shining out like they're not terrified of the dark
i wonder could i ever be like them?
i'd die to be that sure of anything
another one of the drones without original thought

i spend my days chasing down a fleeting release
at night i get high and wrap up in my fantasies
running thinner than a razor blade
bifurcating to endure the strain
here's to the life - a fight for inner peace

so i bide my time
grind my teeth
i'll guard my stories
'till i make my leap
Track Name: volatile
it's either everything or nothing much
can't tell why / i need the rush
my whole life is a defense
a fight to find some silence

fluctuating between extremes
afraid to love or trust a feeling
you never know where to go
or what the day will hold

always out of my comfort zone
never stick around for too long
never know what to feel
or what is even real

polarized / too hot to hold
turning tides / so volatile
polarized / too hot to hold
turning tides / so volatile
Track Name: haunting ft. James Reed
sparkle blue my eyes complete
another hidden symphony between
just a fantasy / so be discreet

voice so haunting
i feel your heat

ocean meets land just like planned
touch down into sand
just a fantasy / your hands on me

voice so haunting
i feel your heat
the lines i crossed in
in my mind

you pull me underwater
you pull me underwater
Track Name: integrate
locked inside a stasis / totally petrified
afraid of segregating / my fears were justified
my moves so calculated / i wasted all my time
the world i had created / i couldn't make it mine

now only your force is moving my feet
pulling me on with you restlessly
all I feel's at home / skin & bone

do I run with the ghost I see
integrate another side of me
to align my soul / arriving whole

i crave subjugation / finally found my guide
caught somewhere between where listlessness & fire reside
so tell me all your secrets / reveal all your lies
blurring the line separating what we see and what we hide

now only your force is moving my feet
pulling me on with you restlessly
all I feel's at home / skin & bone

do I run with the ghost I see
integrate another side of me
to align my soul / arriving whole
Track Name: lines
all of your thoughts encoded into binary
project a farce / a play to keep your lies buried

truth be told it's all a little much
i'm falling out of touch
can't you see i'm unravelling?
i'm lost inside a fantasy
i see my life reduced down to lines
scrolling down a screen

an analog / a reproduction of a feeling
resampling / integrity is all we're missing
anesthetize / this is life in high fidelity
unsatisfied / what's left when there's no empathy?

truth be told it's all a little much
i'm falling out of touch
can't you see i'm unravelling?
i'm lost inside a fantasy
i see my life reduced down to lines
scrolling down a screen
Track Name: enough
innocence
gave away the last of it
the time had come for delicate undertakings
broke all my ties
to the front lines

idealized
one way to objectify
young and free with all my faults
we had to live
vicariously
didn't we

what do you do when all that you are ain't enough?
who are you when all that you are ain't enough?

look at you
always reaching for a dream
unrooted in reality / i can relate
now i'm falling through
i'm losing you

look at me
always stuck between extremes
a product of my chemistry
i isolate / keep on moving
i'm moving on

what do you do when all that you are ain't enough?
who are you when all that you are ain't enough?
