Track Name: A Fire
To the outside I am a fire. To you, it's the same. A passing flash of warmth that we both watched go down in flames. I am unkind. I don't care. And I don't need any chances anymore. Cold days and slow rain. Insults that are meant to push me further away. I think you're insane. This time it's not my moods that set you off. It's just sincerity. I finally gave you what you want. I don't need any chances anymore.
Track Name: Moving Mountains
We're moving mountains now they're crushing down on us fighting back with fireworks it won't be enough lightning streaming down around and through you roman candles no they just won't do I don't really want it if you can really hold it I don't want to try it unless you think it's hopeless convincing grace and tastes and a charming air they're only words I know there's no substance there you sit and wait for things to turn downhill a slow erosion of fate to tempt your idle will I don't really want it if you can really hold it I don't want to try it unless you think it's hopeless I don't really want it if you can really hold it I don't want to try it unless you think it's hopeless
Track Name: I Will Glow
Your smile makes me glow when you turn out the light
I will glow when you turn out the light
I will glow when you turn out the light
I will glow

But you wanted to leave
So you could get some sleep
and hide like a secret you keep

Your eyes make me glow when you turn out the light
I will glow when you turn out the light
I will glow when you turn out the light
I will glow

But you wanted to leave
So you could get some sleep
and hide like a secret you keep

But we all had to leave
So we could get some sleep
and hide like a secret

But you wanted to leave
But you wanted
Track Name: Ribbons
look at all that lies ahead
a vast power to douse our lamps
let's both feel the tide
rising up beyond our thighs
and if we stand real still
the silt will drain from below our heels
a smooth rush and swell
says more than I can tell

so breath in deep
ignore the pain
the crushing pressure
the pulsing veins
don't dare mistake
this ribbon for a chain

your skin will hold you closer
than the arms of any lover
the screaming gulps fade away
to where strict pleasure lays
soon we'll know its name
we won't want it any other way
each others water in our lungs
is exactly what we'll love

so breath in deep
ignore the pain
the crushing pressure
the pulsing veins
don't dare mistake
this ribbon for a chain
Track Name: Clouds Clapping Hands
The sky
Moved like swollen ink
Earth caked in wet sand
Spreading freazing water
The clouds opened up their hands

We stamp and we sing
We hold our spears high
The fire burns brightly
While the blood boils in our eyes
Alone we were meek
But together we roar
The pulse beating louder
Than ever before

From your prophetic screams
A monster was made
But the fading flames
Put a shadow on your name
The chanting rose
The pounding drowned you out
I watched the teeth collapse
Inside your mouth

The clouds clapped their hands
In flashes of white
We bit and we tore
In the freakish strobe light
Our vocal chords broke
In time with your skin
Frantic arms slashed
As your breathing grew thin

The foam kissed your body
Sand cradled your frame
Without looking back
We wandered away
I don’t need to think
I don't need to believe
Cuz I’ve got
Something else that can do that for me
While you bleed

We stamp and we sing
We hold our spears high
The fire burns brightly
While the blood boils in our eyes
Alone we were meek
But together we roar
The pulse beating louder
Than ever before
While you bleed
