Track Name: Soaring
OooooOO
Track Name: Angel
I've never seen an angel before, but i'm sure, that's what you are.
I've never seen that pearly kinda white, that you ignite with eyes like stars

I've never been so close, yet far away,
from heaven
And i'd take over any other day,
Forever, forever.

You've got eyes like sinkholes, hair shaped like seas
someday maybe i'll tell you what you mean to me
That smile is always waiting to be seen
Your face is shining but only i can see,
the secrets, that you keep

(mumbling)

I've never felt like this before
but i'm sure it's something special
i've never seen the door to heaven-place
but it's probably your face.

I've never been so close, yet far away,
from heaven
And i'd take over any other day,
Forever, forever.

You've got eyes like sinkholes, hair shaped like seas
someday maybe i'll tell you what you mean to me
That smile is always waiting to be seen
Your face is shining but only i can see,
the secrets, that you keep
Track Name: I Can Go Away
I can go away, if you want me to,
it's all wishy washy what you want me to do.
If I'm gonna stay, i wont be alone
i want you to say, all of your intentions

I won't be alone, if i come on home
I'll have friends and songs
I'll sing them if I long
for your freckled face, for all that i want
Til all that i was is gone

I want you away from me, because there's only pain as far as i can see
I want you away from me, because there's only pain as far as i can see

How i wish it was over.
How i wish it was over.
How i wish it was over.
How i wish it was over.
Track Name: Lightless
Lightless and lifeless
I never expressed all the words that i kept buried in my head
and you held him like a baby and back then i thought maybe it'd be better if i left and now it would be best.
If i left this life behind because i can't feel your light and i can't feel your grace, oh the one of white

Oh the one of white, i have become lightless.
Oh the one who's bright i have become lifeless.

and holy eyes how you remind me of myself
As i sit and reminisce about your all all alone
Who turned the lights out?
Who turned the lights out?
Who turned the lights out?
Why'd you turn the lights out?
I'm confused
Please let me back inside
I'm empty

Oh the one of white, i have become lightless.
Oh the one who's bright i have become lifeless.
Track Name: Pulled Underwater
I will destroy you,
I will come down from the sky,
just to break your neck
just to see you die

and if the wakes one the wonders
sets them down to the ground

and i let you down
with fingers failing
and i took the crown
and i pushed into your face somehow
you were bleeding all over the floor
you were crying for more

i am all bleeding oh
i am all pleading oh

I will wait for the awakening to watch as your beginnings all turn into your endings
I will wait for the awakening to watch as your beginnings all turn into your endings
Track Name: Some Plucks For You
i wasted my days
waiting for someone who will never even look my way again
i remember her face
eyes about to burst right out of her head
she looked kinda used.
Track Name: Realization
It's been like two months since i've seen you smile
it's not that you've been crying or sad
it's just that i haven't seen you
Track Name: Walking Through Lonely Dreams
I saw you, but it wasn't you
it was just someone who kinda looked like you
Cause you're not around
you're plucking the strings
i saw a ghost
and that ghost, kinda looked like you
i was asleep, i didn't know i was dreaming
i was terrified
i didn't dare then
not even when i, was asleep
to tell what's on my mind.
Track Name: Smile
Twisted smile, wait some time
wait two months for nothing
would you have, went to them
if you knew i wasn't coming

every time, i close my eyes,
i fall asleep, i die inside
every time i try to hide, i see your face in warm light

try to escape, but there's no exit.

pretty smile, big bright eyes
trading pain for nothing
shining bright, always light
standing in her shadow

it's coming back, those feelings that
i tried to kill, i tried to sack.
it's coming back, the hurting that
i tried to kill, i tried to sack.
Track Name: Wish
open your mouth for me baby
let all your holds clear of hearts
and then i'll float away
into the sun through the dark
i'll wipe the tears from your face
we'll float forever through space
and once inside we'll parade
the loving we hid from the saints.

They said to slay the slaughtered
Would be to waste our lives
They said to take their daughters
inside
They said to waste the watered
would be a waste of time
they said to let me back inside

see her swirling out the window
see her throwing her light out the door
as my fingers grow finished and falter
i can't see anymore

sit and watch him falling
sit and see him cry
there's nothing left now darling
nothing left, for you and i
sit and cry your warning
as the storm starts running
hear him cry for shelter
why, oh why, oh why, oh why, oh why
oh why, oh why.
Young sun won.
Track Name: Chloroform
Take a sip of the chloroform
Reach for the bathroom door
Hit the sink, oh i wouldn't think you'd
be that stupid

Run outside, it's a sleek little building
homicide, it's a nice little feeling
to be so glad that you're upset

now i mistrust myself enough
to want to be like someone else
and i don't trust myself enough
to be happy a man

and take a stand for someone bigger
counting triple digit figures we just
make it up as life goes on
it's all just one long fucking song

so take another swig you're worth it
cozy up and cry
make yourself at home and let it out
you're all alone again

mistrusting everyone around you
trusting no one else
makes you happier than no one
makes you hate yourself.
