Aeons 02:54
Listen close I’m about to leave you Words of ghosts, through sound I can see you Come back in to the picture Listen close cause I still need you Words of hope, in sound I can feel it Light me up. I feel it leer from the shadows of which I shed, But it’s all in my head, It dwells in my past, I can’t keep waiting for you I’ve searched for aeons, I keep finding the same mistakes. Oh, could have saved them. [Did they] See, where the ocean lies. I’ll see you there, Take your time. The sweet ascent, The steep decline.

Dark Emu 03:42
Is it too late to save this? Too late to run? We forget the dead, their lessons burn. Is it too late to save this? It’s far too late to run. Take me over, leave me breathless, If you can't control it then just let go, just let go. Time moves on an endless thread We create so we don't forget, our dreams and ambitions, our sacred traditions. Time moves on an endless thread, please don't forget this. Is it too late to save this? Too late to run? We forget the dead, their lessons burn. I feel the distance inside of us, This lack of empathy will keep us torn. Take me over, leave me breathless. If you can’t control it then just let go, just let go. Take me over, leave me breathless. If you can’t control it then just let go, I can’t let go. Along this endless thread we suffocate alone. If we keep teasing at the fabric we can make sense of it, and so, [We are wasting] If we keep weaving with this in mind we can mend reality. [We are wasting] And so, we sow away. Away.

Straylight 02:47
We siphon off our feelings, Drown the pain in toxins, Smother out our dreams and Stand for naught then die-a-jest. This is, this is reality. Our culture fiends off self-importance, Rejecting themes of synergy. We could have been so much more than this. What is it that we seek in life? Is it to see through our own demise? I cannot seem to find the light, Won’t you run away with me? We stand like stone, Sinking in our heads, Ruminating ‘til we stutter. We fall like sand, Fragile in your hands, Drifting into nothingness.

Is there any way out of my own head? Restricted by constructs I create This self doubt and fear builds me up and holds me in place Hey wait, don't foster any bright i- Hey wait, who tells you want to think? Be still and realise it won't mean a thing at all Be still and realise it won't mean a fucking thing If you don't want it to mean anything Is there any way out of my own head? Frustrated by moments I've dismayed There's something inside Hey wait, don't foster any bright ideas Hey wait, you suffer when you don't express yourself Don't be a witness Out of this head Can you see the ocean view? Let the sun shine through. Out of this head [and realise it won't mean a fucking thing] Can you see the ocean view? Let the sun shine through. Don't be a witness.

Embers 04:18
Paper cuts, don't you forget that feeling you felt. That fire needs feeding again. Weave the thread of time and push the line. Face yourself and say what is needed to say. The dullness consumes everything, don't submit. Submerge me in water and clean my head out. And I won't think anymore. How long can we keep it together like this? Even in my sleep I feel it, turning. I feel it turning, turning out. Tear down the practices, break down the rules and show their flaws. [Tear down] Tear off the broken helms, they are too far gone to steer, how do they hold? [How long] Tear down the practices, break down the rules and propagate words that stay. [How long] A stutter [I'm too late] A shout [Destruction] It’s all in the way you talk [you hear me] Clear [you hear me] Clear [you hear me] A shadows not inevitably darkness. Blossoming, we'll come back from here, as we learn everything is at risk. For evermore. Blossoming, we'll come back from here, as we learn everything is at risk. I'll do anything for everything I love.

Clementine 03:26
Unconsciously I speak with notions These reflect my own perceptions Let's take a moment to breath I want to know who you are I want to see what you see See, see what you see And all we know is how to fear Was it easier to hear it from someone else outside of you? [Was it easier?] Cool your head and let love wash over you. Cool your head and let light wash over you. I want to know who you are I want to see what you see See, see what you see Consequently these words can hurt thee, Do I need to question my own traditions? I must be out of my mind, Keep delving into your mind We'll keep delving Cause we all know is how to fear And all I want is to erase that fear

Wildfire 04:05
Wake up, a crusade is within you Now's the time to enact the change you want to see A steady pace, don't you move too fast now Analyse and plan the steps you need to take, inside I sleepwalked with dullness, When I woke I found myself in flames I feel it coming back to that pinpoint in time When all we worked and died for Was an endless hearth of passion within Can you feel my light? Safe inside, stay inside here. Why would I want to leave this place? It's all that I've known. Wake up, a crusade is within you Now's the time to enact the change you want to see A steady pace, don't you move too fast now Analyse and plan the steps you need to take, inside There's no matter of urgency it seems Just keep acting out my part in the social scene It's killing me, tracing back rewinding inside of archives. How curious, there's no account of the western dream fulfilling anyone. Safe to say, I warned you all. And I know you've been burning out. Wake up, I can hear the wind's changing now. Wake up, you're sinking. Safe inside, which reminds me of Why I want to leave this place It's all that I've known Safe inside, which reminds me Why I want to leave this place It's all that I've known Wake up, I can hear the wind's changing now. Wake up, you're sinking.

So what the fuck is your purpose? I cannot pretend to see the end But with no vision, no pre tense, no hope, There's a reason that we can't escape this hole Where do you go? What are you looking for? Do you see with a mind that is critical? When I see it, I wanna know the reasons of why it's so. We keep restricting ourselves to one typology, This thinking spreads like disease inducing atrophy. Stand for nothing and we all decay. Pose your questions or it stays the same. So what the fuck is your purpose? So what the fuck is my purpose? A sinking disinterest, beyond a screen, The fluorescent sunset gleans. Safety in numbers if you dare to dream If you dare to dissent, sing. Speak up, and stand up. All I see is dead men walking, All I hear is hollow.

I could take to the cliff edge, I could take to the rapids, I could take to the forest that's burning down. I sit horrified, how can we still glorify the; Invade and suppress those that differ, Distract, divide and conquer Assimilate or die. So concerned with yourself, You keep catching what you're kicking. It's deluded. Hearing only yourself, how can you claim you're rational? I believe there's a day and a place that we can go, Where the conceded and fearful can no longer drive. From the edge we will glide into embers Through the reeds and the rocks we will filter. In the ashes, we'll fly. So concerned with yourself, You keep catching what you're kicking. It's deluded. Hearing only yourself, how can you claim you're rational? If for all your life, you believe that you're always right, Is it self deception? If for all your life, you believe that you're always right, It's assured destruction.

Shelter 04:12
If I could see it, Then I could change it Shatter with me, if I convinced you we’re falling Would you leave in this instant? If I could, See it [open up their minds] Then I could [find some peace] Change it [knowing that they listened] Take shelter with me, if we keep, On losing oxygen, take a breath and hold it in. Oceans of tidal waves knocking at my front door, I’m getting over it, seeing the signs before you do. Come on and shatter with me and, Move with motion, the storm is calling you. When all I see is are these dreams of drowning in seas, Wading through endless waves of fear, What can I say? What can I do? To steer to the truth? A fruitless summer the war has just begun. A fruitless summer, an endless winter, The sky is falling, where do we begin? Oceans of tidal waves knocking at my front door, I’m getting over it, seeing the signs before you do.

In an instant you deserted, Alone in your head, Alone as you dwell. Resign yourself to the earth, Listen to it's melody, it's wisdom, it's truth. I step back blind sided by you and everything you do, I thought you'd notice, but then you don't. You bite back, keep hiding behind that fear it serves you well, I thought you'd notice, I care for you. You can find me in the garden, The soil helps me breathe and calm the nerves. Resign yourself to the earth, Listen to it's melody, it's wisdom, it's truth. Resign yourself to the earth, I'll commit this to a melody, so the memory won't fade.

Enso 03:58
It's open, come in. Let the door shut with the wind and fall inside. Are we endless within? Are we bounded by our skin? If I cannot see the end, how do I know that we begin? Drawing enso, mind of marrow. Are you in? Dive straight in, let your fears dissipate. Egoless, the waking life, ensues. Hush, let em all in. Drawing enso, mind of marrow. Are you in? Dive straight in, let your fears dissipate. Egoless, the waking life...
