Track Name: Starts to Fade
Heartbeat starts to fade
The rise in the chest falls away

Heartbeat starts to fade
The rise in the chest falls away
All sound left the room
Made way for her thunderous howl

She screams
I’m going to take my boy home
I’m going to take my boy home
I’m going to take my boy home
Today

Never told to worry
Believed their progeny would achieve
More than they ever have

During the short stay
Here in the universe

They weren’t prepared to say goodbye
As soon as they said hello
As soon as they said hello

They weren’t prepared to say goodbye
As soon as they said hello
As soon as they said hello

Heart beat starts to fade
The rise in the chest falls away
All sound left the room
Made way for her thunderous howl
Track Name: Be OK
We’ve finally received
An abundance of clinical words

Which can only be translated
To mean
[Nothing is static now]

These days I find myself
Noticing everything mundane
I think its to help me distract myself
[From all those words they said]

Survivor, everything will be just fine
Survivor, unfortunately my words mean nothing

[Nothing is static now]
[Nothing is static now]

Cartoon beasts
A cashier’s smile
A dog at his feet
[Their joy is alien]

Return to you
I beg and plead
To come with me
[But you are already gone]

How to start tomorrow?
I’ll have to tell myself
[All of the words I said]

Survivor, everything will be just fine
Survivor, everything will be just fine
Survivor, everything will be just fine
Survivor, everything will be ok

Be OK
Be OK
Be OK
OK

Be OK
[I’ll just lie to myself]
[I’ll just lie to myself]
Be OK
[I’ll just lie to myself]
[I’ll just lie to myself]
Be OK
Track Name: In Search of Something
I’ve been searching for the answers
Buried within these texts
Hoping their instructions will free me
From the grief
And despondency
I’ve given up on hope
Given up on hope alone

Is there some spell I can cast
Concoction to make
What does it take?
Cause I’m in search of something
To take me away

A flicker of lights, a book jumping off the wall
Is it so small? How could I fix everything?
No I couldn’t fix anything,
The room’s filled with smoke,
a handful of sage burning
Will it all last? Whatever it is that I’ve done?

Is there some spell I can cast
Concoction to make
What does it take?
Cause I’m in search of something
To take me away

Is there some spell I can cast
Concoction to make
Or all they all fake?
Cause I’m in need of something
To take me away

One misplaced word
The wrong intention (in my heart)
We all make mistakes
For love or to spite it

My casualty
You’ll pay the price (for my grief)
In my search for healing
With hate I cursed another,

One misplaced word
The wrong intention (in my heart)
we all make mistakes
For love or to spite it
Track Name: The Judge of My Enemies
Your scent will hit me in crowds
And I can still remember the way you taste
And I've had too much to drink
and it's hard to resist your calls.

They say you’re no good for me
But I'll be the judge of my enemies
They say you’re no good for me
But I'll be the judge of my friends

Even though I know
You’ll be the death of me
It’s hard to put you down

They say you’re no good for me
But I'll be the judge of my enemies
They say you’re no good for me
But I'll be the judge of my friends
Track Name: They Know
Here they lay side-by-side
cigarettes glow in the twilight
Circling smoke
Thickens circled thoughts

She replays the night in her head
Louder tones, Higher pulse
He knows, he knows
He knows, he knows

Now they try to enjoy this time
But it came at a price
It feels like a crime
Louder moans, quicker breath
They know, they know, they know
They know, they know, they know

All your light
I store inside
So I can
Find peace at night

Sleep at night
Track Name: Ever Again
You've gotten pretty good at withholding the truth
And restricting your feelings
It feels like you’re wasting your youth
Crushed by the guilt of your heart beating

You’ll needn’t worry about any of those things ever again
At least with me
At least with me

Pressing overwhelming expectations
Heeding my every beck and call
Now you're deflecting attention from these situations
The shudder in your voice says it all

You’ll needn’t worry about any of those things ever again
