Track Name: Amarind Sashes
i am wandering off
right on the edge of self
but i'll hide giving it up
you don't reap what you sew, I know

are you leaving it all unknown

i've been sitting about
why don't you say "I fold"
I'll be someone you know
tired of running around, i try, pick up
its gone
i know

seeing stars
got me seeing stars
seeing stars
seeing stars, out
see who you are
you were the one
you were the one
shone bright
you were the one
you were the one
Track Name: Schemes
heart of mine
i've been cheating both love and life
i've been feeling the span of time
and how it folds in all around

aging eyes, slowly blinking
i tear the ties, i've been seeking
i wait for night, but it won't come with the light

black water will flow
down the lonely streets you walk
raise you back up
black water will flow
down behind the streets you saw
wash you back up

painful times, you've been reeling
i see the signs i've been needing
i'll take whats right
and make whats wrong right about
heart of mine
i've been needing this heart to fight
all the bleeding
i'll take whats mine and offer up to the light

black water will flow
down the solemn creeks you sought
to rise back up
black water will flow
down the lonely streets you walk
raise you back up

tear up, i'm alive but i'm tearing
i'm alive but i'm faking, i won't lie again
Track Name: !Ex Ex!
start telling lies till they finally burn out
stop telling lies till you don't remember

keep killing the lights till its finally turning black
keep losing my friends to all of the minutes
Track Name: Take Off
all my life been waiting, taking so long
to figure out who i wanted to become
everything i look for in a song
harry nilsson and drunk john lennon

don't you see me try i try i try
to put it back where i thought it was before
don't you see me trying trying so hard
i've been feeling like i cannot wait no more

all the time is spaced out in flowing lines
all around the world it feels the same
everyone that's birthed and born into life
i feel like we deserve a second chance

its not wrong, to forget about
try hard, i'm still waiting for

don't you see me try i try i try
to put it back where i thought it would belong
don't you see me trying trying so hard
i've been feeling like i cannot wait no more
Track Name: Glory Lights
why am i always the last to know
why are you convinced to play along

glory in the light, sing a song
glory in the light didn't come

i believe in life
i'm so lost i'll find something

glory in the light didn't come
i can't recognize what stands above

why am i always the last to know
why am i not convinced to drink the punch
why am i not convinced to drink it up
i'm so lost i'll find the words undone
Track Name: Separate / Return
i wait without
i know time's running out
i pay for everything
it was you not me

i pretend
i pretend for you
i pretend for you
its not my fault

i heal without you gone
