Track Name: So What Now?
So what now?
I can hardly open my mouth.
So many words printed so fine
and I just can't spit it out.
So tell me again
because this time I'm really listening
but I won't change my mind this time
no matter what, no matter how

So what now?
I was starting to figure it out.
Took all the words from the page
and ripped it up into twenty-seven pieces
and stuffed it in my briefcase
at the end of a long, dim hallway
as I ran out of patience.
I started to lose control
of all my muscles
because there will be a day
I don't recognize my face
I'll stop responding to my name
and I can't wait
Track Name: Flowers
Leaving your old body because in your head you're a skeleton.
Crush the flowers in your hand, and leave them by the fountain steps.
Again got rid of everything - your promises, your old dreams.
Based them in some memory for which you made your own meaning.

In your fingers, feel your pulse, but in your neck there isn't anything.
Get sick into the ocean until there is nothing left.
Pretend you know how it felt to take so long to forget yourself.
Leave your old body because in your head you're still a skeleton.
Track Name: Swallow
Took so long to get that feeling back
Wasted all of your time making it last
Should've died young
kept your innocence

For a moment everything moved in slow motion
Left it alone
Felt like the ground would swallow you whole
Track Name: Always Is
You're not listening
when he's talking.
Just save your breath
for another problem.
Don't you ever think?
It's not your skin you just live inside of it.
So what do you say we just carry on this way
for the rest of your life?

He's going to lose his temper,
he's going to want to talk to you about Christ
when he comes back in -
he's not going to want hear any of this,
because, after all,
that's the way it always is.

It won't be too much time
until he's all but saved your life,
so remember clear -
you will not apologize
when you give him all of your secrets.
Track Name: Sure
Up all night
quiet for a while
I know you're tired,
but open up your eyes.
The room starts to spin
can't remember why
I can't understand,
I can't understand, but I will try.
It was out of my control
still I can't be sure
if I'll ever be alright.

You can run away,
but what's that going to change?
You carry the same weight
any other place.
You've been acting strange,
and everyone's the same.
They try and understand
but never comprehend
or even find out why
it was out of my control
but still I can't be sure
if I'll ever be alright
Track Name: Genie

Track Name: Untitled
Now I know the difference,
but I don't know what it means
And I can't forget,
it's in the air we breathe.

Now it's so hard to focus,
there's so many things I don't notice
And it's not hard to tell that
it's different than I imagined.
Now I feel like
I'm wasting all of my time
Track Name: Tesseract
Say a prayer for me
Everyday moves like a century
When I get home
It's already dark
Spime
Living on a line
My whole life began
Out of thin air
Everyone's here
as a cube to square
Everyone is nothing
Track Name: I Thought It Was Normal
Lost control
of all my muscles
And starting with my vision
I lost all of my senses
I thought it was normal
Yes, I thought it was normal
Stuck my hands
in the dirt
dug them in
until blood came from my fingers
Dug my feet
in the earth
still the wind
picked me up and blew away
To the edge
of the ocean,
a mountain top,
a million miles away

No, that's not what happens
But what is the difference?
Stuck my hands
in the dirt
dug them in
until blood came from my fingers
Dug my feet
in the earth
still the wind
picked me up and blew away
To the edge
of the ocean,
a mountain top,
a million miles away
Track Name: In Heaven
Through the cracks in the concrete
there's a light you can see,
laying low in the sky tonight,
made you feel your size.
Tried to think of something to say
that could amount to anything.

You can breathe this air again
let it wash your dirty skin.
Feel your lungs in your chest
finally decompress.
Fall asleep before your eyes adjust,
let the moonlight dye your hair
in heaven
Track Name: Can You Believe It?
Feel your way around, up from underground with no specific intentions.
When you finally reached it, under the impression that the edge is not the end -
what a feeling to behold it at the right place the wrong moment.
You're here now, but I can tell that you're also somewhere else.
Can you believe it is happening and that's it?

Fought so hard to stay human that I forgot this consequence that's always in my head.
I would try if I weren't so tired.
But these feelings, can't control them at the right place the wrong moments.
You're here now, but I can tell that you're also somewhere else.
What a blessing to be destined for anything.
