Track Name: Weird Luck
I don’t know all the things you’ve seen
Underneath unfolding swells of green

You can pick the lock if you don’t have the key
But some things you’re better off not knowing

You’ve got weird luck
You’ve got weird luck
In time you’ll know it well

You got strange charms, you've got that going
The hourglass knows it comes down to timing

Excavating facts to see who’s been lying
Carving out a tunnel for the new age of mining

You’ve got weird luck
You’ve got weird luck
In time you’ll know it well
Track Name: All Been Spent
What you say is what you want to say,
Talk that way, you’ll start a fight about it

It’s ok, even diamonds fade, you can’t last all day in the hottest weather,
Or take the pressure

You’ve been making rounds, you’ve been making rounds,
And running your mouth all night, but I know

That it’s all been spent
It’s all been spent

Through the days, you’re gonna lose your way, let it fall apart and put it back together

It’s ok, even diamonds fade, you can’t last all day in the hottest weather,
Or take the pressure

You’ve been making rounds, you’ve been making rounds,
And running your mouth all night, but I know

That it’s all been spent
It’s all been spent
Track Name: RPG
Haste take over me,
Until I'm fever stricken, down and darkened

Stare blank at the screen
Until I'm somewhere else, alone and watching

All the iron beams across the faded sea
Islands of debris, come up from underneath

What I know is what I see
It's gleaming out of reach
What I know is what I see
It's gleaming out of reach

Years get colder,
clean and sterile now

All my instincts,
folded over now

Cure take over me,
Until I'm spacey-headed, speaking lightly

Sink into the screen
Until I'm somewhere lost inside the scene of

All the iron beams across the faded sea
Islands of debris, come up from underneath

What I know is what I see
It's gleaming out of reach
What I know is what I see
I'm digging deeper underneath

Years get colder,
clean and sterile now

All my instincts,
folded over now
Track Name: Abstract Speed
You can’t see what passes through you
Full of noise and abstract speed
Spark light glows and cuts right through you
But you resign to sleep

You’ll never know
You’ll never know
You’ll never know
You’re blind to me

Modern nature can’t control you
Convenience gives you all you need
But all your sight could never focus
The thrill of abstract speed

You’ll never know
You’ll never know
You’ll never know
You’re blind to me
Track Name: Strange Obsession
Strange Obsession
All I want is through
Strange Obsession
Everyone knows it's true
I know it's far from heaven
I know it's far from heaven

Strange Obsession
As I'm passing through
Strange Obsession
Singular point of view
I know it's far from heaven
I know it's far from heaven

But you don't know why
You called me out tonight
We'll never know as long as we're alive
Track Name: Woozy
After all is said and done the light is in my eyes
Turn to blink and closing in, I see through the disguise

Hanging round the same old haunt until I’m going blind
Drive me madly through the wall until the stars unwind

Woozy when I’m standing here and colder than the snow
Frozen lake becomes a mirror with sharp metallic glow

Things I’d never see again revealed themselves to me
What’s over must go under again returning to the sea
Track Name: Darkling
I don’t know what you are doing here
It’s hard to ignore your vision sharp and clear
I don’t know why you’re digging
Down here down here, darkling down here

What you want is what you’re getting
Dragging out the same old mine
What you want is what you’ll get
I’m dry
I’m dry

I don’t know what you are doing here
It’s hard to ignore the stranger things you hear
I don’t know why you’re digging
Down here, down here, darkling, down here now

What you want is what you’re getting
Dragging out the same old mine
What you want is what you’ll get
I’m dry
I’m dry
Track Name: Aerosol
Feeling nervous, feeling nervous
floating closer to the surface
silver water, silver water, stretching out for miles

Everything you know's uncertain
details slip behind the curtain
silver water, silver water, stretching out for miles

Run dry, run dry, until it drains out
Unwind, unwind, unraveling down
Run dry, run dry, until it drains out
I'm melting down into different shapes

Feeling nervous, feeling nervous
floating closer to the surface
silver water, silver water, stretching out for miles

Overheat, repeat in circles
drifting in a darkened pool
silver water, silver water
silver water, silver water, stretching out for miles

Run dry, run dry, until it drains out
Unwind, unwind, unraveling down
Run dry, run dry, until it drains out
I'm melting down into different shapes
Track Name: This Same House
All my life I've been holding out
Trying to stay away from this same house
My mind is tangled up and bound
Can't stay away from this same house

It's what I'm coming to
It's what I'm coming to
22 and I'm wasted again

I try to keep myself sane
I try to keep myself sane
It's hard not to change

All my life I've been holding out
Trying to stay away from this same house
My mind is tangled up and bound
Can't stay away from this same house

I try to stave it off
I try to sleep it off
But I'm up all night

Wanna forget my name
Wanna forget my name
But it's too late

Run round circles putting miles down
All caught up in
Games we'll play
Games we'll play today

All my life I've been holding out
Trying to stay away from this same house
My mind is tangled up and bound
Can't stay away from this same house
Track Name: Parasol Life
Suck a lemon until its running dry
Nothing bitter can unwind
your watercolor world

You’ve mapped it all out, there’s nothing left to try
I’ve been under for a spell
But now I know this well

That it’s not hard to tell
That you are safe for now
In the parasol life

Keep a record of all the things you’ve done
You’ll write it in a tome
Keep it hidden and alive

Draw up the plans so nothing’s left to chance
I’ve been under for a spell
But now I know this well

That it’s not hard to tell
That you are safe for now, tonight

In the parasol life
Track Name: Past the Veil
It's hard to speak
the words will leak
make no sense to me

It's hard to see
what's underneath
in the dark we'll read

We're moving past the veil
but everything behind you leaves a trail 

We're moving past the veil
but everything in motion goes astray

You're changing scenes
to let it freeze
to avoid the heat

It lies asleep
til it's woken up
by our careless feet

We're moving past the veil
but everything behind you leaves a trail 

We're moving past the veil
but everything in motion goes astray
