Track Name: Catharsis
I stand tall
Among those below me
Tunnelvision
I choose what I want to see
What a lonely world
There are statues behind every door
I need you to understand
That I'm not myself anymore

Jaded memories of the things we used to do
Played on repeat, the times I saw right through
Hidden away from me, the things I never knew
I'm so afraid to see how I appear to you

And we talked and we talked and we talked
I was treading water at best
You told me to sink or swim
And let gravity do the rest

You know
We're all lost in our own way
You're not my judge
So who are you to say
When your pedestal
Is razed to the ground
Set so high in your mind

We're all so fucked up
In our own way
You're not my judge
So who are you to say
When your pedestal
Is razed to the ground
You can wear your fucking crown

Does it make you feel happy?
To know that you were right

Jaded memories of the things we used to do
Played on repeat, the times I saw right through
Hidden away from me, the things I never knew
(Hello my old friend it's nice to know you
Here are some things that I'd like to show you)
I'm so afraid to see how I appear to you
(Remember the time that I said I need you
Those days are gone you need to leave too)

Forgot the rules
So I failed the test
To heal is to accept the knowledge
Of how long you have left

No room to breathe in this cage
But if you tell me honestly
Then maybe I can see
See what you've seen all along
And then maybe finally
You could come back to me
Back to me

Jaded memories of the things we used to do
Played on repeat, the times I saw right through

Tell me honestly
Speak and set me free

I'm so afraid to see
I'm so afraid
Track Name: Clockwork
Clockwork wound up way too tight
You caught me out today
You'll do the same tomorrow night
No escape from
The second hand in my mind
We try to run
But in the end we're all confined

The cracks in my past show
A side I thought you'd never see
You think you know who I am
But who you're staring at isn't me

And now
Now I've crossed the line
Between you and I
It's written with ink
And it's stained with time
Time to remember
Time to forget
Time to realise that it's all in my head

You look me up and down
Neither of us knows what to say
I tell you that even a broken a clock
Tells the right time twice a day
Someone explain how it got like this
It only kills me to reminisce
I had it all
I don't know why I threw it away

Sometimes I wonder why the past is hard to see
Lift the veil of shadow from my clouded memory

And now
Now I've crossed the line
Between you and I
It's written with ink
And it's stained with time
Time to remember
Time to forget
Time to realise that it's all in my head

The cracks in my past show
A side I thought you'd never see
You think you know who I am

Wasting our time
To carry our past with us
Until a minute's too short
Until we're running out of breath
Running an impossible race
Trying to find the meaning in nothing
Because after all
We're mostly empty space
Track Name: Fracture
My eyes are heavy
And my vision blurred
Got a nauseous feeling
And my speech is getting slurred
A simple game
Turned sleepless night
They wheel me in
And the lights are too bright

One day's passed
Now memory
I can barely move
I can barely see
They tell me I'm ok
But I don't feel the same
The feeling won't come back
But at least I'm not insane

Because now I understand
What it is to feel
When everything hurts
But nothing is real

Make an incision
At the front of my head
Before something snaps
Please put me to bed

Because now I understand
What it is to feel
When everything hurts
But nothing is
Nothing is
Nothing is real
Track Name: Sunshine Eyes
Leave me be
Let me sleep
This hollow dream
For you to keep
Time goes by
Wondering why
The sunshine's pouring
From out your eyes

My reflection is everywhere
I feel it when I walk
When I stare into the sky
Slowly the pressure builds
Until we reach the end
I can't sit back and wonder why

Ashen clouds on the horizon
Winter's here at last
So hold me close
I will protect you
As we fade to the past

I promise you the sun will go down
I promise you we'll make it somehow
Your sunshine eyes on mine as we count down
The seconds fade as we fall to the ground

Set the scene
Fade to grey
Stand between me
And the next day
End the game
Time to play
A bureaucratic itch
A fifteen megaton twitch
How did it come to this?

I promise you the sun will go down (Sun goes down)
I promise you we'll make it somehow (Make it somehow)
Your sunshine eyes on mine as we count down (We count down)
The seconds fade as we fall to the ground

Now this is the end
No need to pretend
That I'll see you again

You see me standing here
Nothing left to fear
And I won't let you see

If you think I am worth
This atomic rebirth
Should we help?
Or should we hide?
If we were there
And if we were first
We'd see the curvature of Earth
As history explodes
And our sun begins to die
Reflected in your sunshine eyes

So hold me close
I will protect you
As we fade to the past

I promise you the sun will go down (Sun goes down)
I promise you we'll make it somehow (Make it somehow)
Your sunshine eyes on mine as we count down
Just close your eyes and listen to the sound
Track Name: Laid to Rest
You condemned me today
You said it's for the best
I'll have no regrets
When I'm laid to rest
You dared to confess
That care was a crime
If we were the victims
Then I'll serve my time

I'll see you again
A thousand years from now
So hold your breath
Please don't make a sound
On the stand
For all to see
And your burden
Rests with me

A child in the spotlight
My monster laid bare
You looked for the innocent
And found nothing there
