Track Name: Beautiful & Miserable
We’ve been lulled to sleep by petty dreams
We’re in love with things that we don’t need
We’ve let our beating hearts be ripped from our chests
Yet we wonder why nothing feels relevant
If there’s a nice thought in your head I wouldn’t believe it if I heard it
And you say we’re so close
We’ve been lulled to sleep by petty dreams
We kill ourselves for heartless shiny things
We’ve let our beating hearts be ripped from our chests
Yet we wonder why we can barely breathe
Everything is loud
Everyone is unsettled
Still we’ll dance for them
And this never ends
And this will never be over
Until we break the cycle
Track Name: Quiet Suicides
These quiet suicides and constant compromise
With every single breath
I wonder what’s left to give
Let’s just call this what it is
I’m a terrible liar
I can’t live like this
Still I tried dying a bit
Because it was what you wanted
These quiet suicides one heartbeat at a time
With every single breath
I wonder what’s left to give
There’s a small death in denying who we are
Let’s just call this what it is
I’m a terrible liar
I can’t live like this
Forget this dying bit
I’ll never be what you wanted
No more quiet lives
Track Name: With Stolen Words
I can’t figure out how to describe it
I can’t tell what we’ve become
I just might steal your words because mine are escaping me
Always just out of reach
Yet it looks so close
Take things halfway
Take things halfway
Still it looks so close
I don’t want to whisper
I don’t have nice things to say
I’m not sorry I’ll never be what you want me to be
Don’t want to read between read between the lines
Why won’t you just say say what you mean
I don’t want to whisper because I don’t have nice things to say
I’m not sorry I’ll never be what you want me to be
Always just out of reach
Yet it looks so close
I’m spending another night
Singing along with my favorite songs
Because it makes me
Because it makes me
Feel more alive
Track Name: On Architects and Archetypes
I don’t know anymore
What are we building up?
I’m missing the logic
Things don’t seem so black and white
Still we have something to say
The old rules hold no meaning
Does this make us revolutionaries?
Things don’t seem so black and white
Call it ego or good intentions
But we know enough to speak up when something is wrong
We will speak up
It won’t be long before we stop asking why
And start yelling “burn it down!”
Is this the place to point out things aren’t right
Is this the right time to be wrong?
Is this wrong?
Someone else can worry about the future
Because we’re acting right now
We’re acting right now
