Track Name: my own way out
hey you come down from there when you
feel like you’ve made despair come true

sometimes I don’t much care for me
sometimes I decide to leave me be

so I can breathe my own way out
so I can see my own way out
so I can feel my own way out

just this one time I’d like to show
I wanna be what I don’t know

sometimes I don’t much care for me
sometimes I decide to leave me be

so I can’t breathe my own way out
so I can’t see my own way out
so I can’t feel my own way out

sometimes I don’t much care for me
sometimes I decide to leave me be

so I can’t breathe my own way out
so I can’t see my own way out
so I can’t feel my own way out
Track Name: metafixation
how long
do I hold on
to what’s been gone
gone for a while now
how strong
can I take on
what I’ve become
come for a while now

metafixation
metafixation
in my head
it’s a sensation
it’s a sensation
that I dread
all of the tension
all of the tension
on a thread
no variation
no variation
til I'm dead

awake
a light in deep grace
flickering in space
space for a way out
don’t break
if you can’t take
what your heart aches
aches for a way out

metafixation
metafixation
in my head
it’s a sensation
it’s a sensation
that I dread
all of the tension
all of the tension
on a thread
no variation
no variation
til I'm dead

metafixation
metafixation
in my head
some hesitation
some hesitation
in what you said
it’s an infection
it’s an infection
that could spread
transfiguration
transfiguration
to what's instead

metafixation
metafixation
in my head
it’s a sensation
it’s a sensation
that I dread
all of the tension
all of the tension
on a thread
no variation
no variation
til I’m dead
Track Name: river like a cry
it’s too late for that now
it’s too late for that now
you might have just figured it out
but it’s too late for that now

let it go with the river
let it go like a cry
you tell me when we will wither
i tell you when we will die

show me another way round
show me another way round
must be an easy way out
so show me another way round

let it go with the river
let it go like a cry
you tell me when we will wither
i tell you when we will die


let it go with the river
let it go like a cry
you tell me when we will wither
i tell you when we will die

let it go with the river
let it go like a cry
you tell me when we will shiver
i tell you when we will ice
Track Name: now i'm me from you
turning poison to a pearl
that's how we change the world
from a dead end to a curl
death spiral to a swirl
at least that’s what I’ve heard
what I’ve heard

now I’m me from you
free to make myself true

i know it would sound absurd
but i can’t recall the words
when the whispers of a bird
taught me what I should unlearn
and which ships I should burn
I should burn

now I’m me from you
free to make myself true

i’ve just got to carry on
can’t wait here very long
now has got me on the run
I’ve got to get this done
before I’m dead and gone
dead and gone

now I’m me from you
free to make myself true
Track Name: a ghost too soon
are you alright
did you survive
is it sublime
on the outside
what is it like
are you surprised
with what's behind
your vanished life

a ghost too soon
you're a
a ghost too soon

can't get our minds
around the sky
without your life
under its eyes
who can surmise
reason or rhyme
something decides
when we divide

a ghost too soon
you're a
a ghost too soon

i can't believe
that i won't see
you before me
how can that be

a ghost too soon
you're a
a ghost too soon
Track Name: nowhere is paradise
god faked you out
love let you down
maybe they should have
seen it come round
your wish not found
something like heaven

i can’t really tell
which way to go from here
whatever oh well
nowhere is paradise
mostly i know
it’s anything but clear
to see through the holes
of what you fantasized

what was that sound
the clocks rewound
back to the moment
when you found out
dying gained ground
on what you never

i can’t really tell
which way to go from here
whatever oh well
nowhere is paradise
mostly i know
it’s anything but clear
to see through the holes
of what you fantasized

when you found out
dying gained ground
on what you never

i cant really tell
which way to go from here
whatever oh well
nowhere is paradise
mostly i know
its anything but clear
to see through the holes
of what you fantasized
Track Name: psuedo euphoria
you should’ve known, known better that now
but being alone makes it easier somehow
to make believe, believe in your own mythology
live in a dream, free from all that wouldn’t be

a pseudo euphoria will always bring you down
you thought you were glorious in your lead role as the clown
a phantasmagoria of fantasy unwound
leaving you feeling lost and forgetting you’ve been found

you try to be, be how everyone needs you to be
always to seem like you’re all too eagerly
getting away, away from someone you don’t want to know
who's not afraid to shed it all and let it go

a pseudo euphoria will always bring you down
you thought you were glorious in your lead role as the clown
a phantasmagoria of fantasy unwound
leaving you feeling lost and forgetting you’ve been found

you keep on telling me
there’s got to be a reason
you keep on telling me
there’s really no way we can work it out
you keep on telling me
our love is out of season
you keep on telling me
that you’re the only one who knows what you’re about

a pseudo euphoria will always bring you down
you thought you were glorious in your lead role as the clown
a phantasmagoria of fantasy unwound
leaving you feeling lost and forgetting you’ve been found
Track Name: moonbird
everyday’s a ticking sun
everyday I’m setting time bombs
still i’ll try to make me some-
thing more that what i’ll become

i heard a moon bird calling
i’m on the run from crawling
and at the must i’m clawing
like letting go means falling

another page of dead end rhymes
another cage of song entwines
as i keep on wringing lines
from what is and isn’t sublime

i heard a moon bird calling
i’m on the run from crawling
and at the must i’m clawing
like letting go means falling

might be time to wind this down
might be time for one more round
if i can i’ll bleed out loud
if i can’t i won’t make a sound

i heard a moon bird calling
i’m on the run from crawling
and at the must i’m clawing
like letting go means falling
Track Name: waterfalls
show me something I’ve not seen before
when I feel like there is nothing more

i thought we’d run through walls
i thought we’d scale waterfalls

tell me something I’ve not heard before
when I need a new thought to adore

i thought we’d walk through walls
i thought we’d scale waterfalls

and after all the years and all that’s failed
you’d think we might have found some other way

take me somewhere I’ve not been before
when it seems like there are no new doors

i thought we’d run through walls
i thought we’d scale waterfalls
Track Name: what if i told you
why did I
draw the line
of this conversation out
out of my hands
if it dies
would you mind
if I just sit this last one
out where i stand

what if i told you
i will try
what if i told you
i won’t do it again

it might show
if you don’t grow
apart from what always held you down
down for so long

what if i told you
i will try
what if i told you
i won’t do it again
what if i told you
it’s alright
what if you told me
that depends
