Track Name: Threads
You paint the eyes on.
I say it's so wrong.
You can make it on your own,
I know.

You pull me in close,
I watch the world go.
Till there's nothing left at all.

I could never save it,
so you say it.
And I'll take back my breath.
And we hold on till these threads
burn through our hands.
No, I'm through with you.

You take the back roads.
Avoid the way home.
Are you better off alone?
I know.

A light on my phone.
And a test on what I know.
Not sober anymore.

I could never save it,
so you say it.
And I'll take back my breath.
And we hold on till these threads
burn through our hands.
No, I'm through with you.

So say it, this is my own skin.
And we'll hold till we burn our hands.
No I'm through with you.

"You'll come around,
oh you will come around
and you will understand --

that a stick in your spokes
was exactly what the doctor had ordered.
(we're all stuck in a rat race)
(I say, how much for the ivory tower sir?)

Cause you don't see just how high you have climbed.
Until you start the longest, longest look down.
And the fall is all that is left...

You cannot wrap your head around someone else's finger kid,
I'm afraid it just doesn't work like that."

I could never save it,
so you say it.
And I'll take back my breath.
And we hold on till these threads
burn through our hands.
No, I'm through with you.
Track Name: Narwhal
Red herrings relay attention out from me.
The sun in the shade,
good intentions are all outweighed.

Where did you go? I will walk.
But it's so long.
Lay my head on the waves, alone.
Cause my heart's a stone, love -
and you've known.

All along.

Can we run away?
Take my hand, like you did - lead the way.
Our greatest escape
These intentions are all out of place.

Where did you go? I will walk.
But it's so long.
Lay my head on the waves, alone.
Cause my heart's a stone, love -
and you've known.

All along.
