Track Name: Submarine
It’s all lock and key for me
Lips tight, sink slowly
Secrets oh so sweet
I’ll be your crime
If you’ll be mine

To the bottom of the sea
My heart plunges, deep
Hear whispers just for me
Simple thievery
My submarine

Wherever the current takes us
On on I will go
Until the waters rise up
and swallow me whole

This anchor steadies me
Rushing waters, full speed
Hold tight to reality, babe
We’ll fade to blue

Tide comes rushing in
Time to sink or swim
We’ve already been
Alvvays and
Forever you’ll stay

Current’s taking me
Hold tight, my submarine
Waters awakening
My submarine
Track Name: Some Assembly Required
Focus on the skeleton beneath
crumbling, broken machine
ashes and rubble
yet my heart still beats
Some assembly required
For me

Some things just aren't meant to be
So they tell me
Some things just aren't meant for me

These bones cast tiny shadows
sprinkled around me
so small and unseen
nothing more than debris
Some assembly required
For me

Some things just aren't meant to be
So they tell me
Some things just aren't meant for me
So they tell me
Some things just aren't meant to be
So they tell me
So they tell me

I try to tell myself I’m alright
Put me back together
I’ll hold on tight
But the TV plays in my mind
I’m a prisoner in my own right

Some assembly required
I’m so fucking tired
Some assembly required
So they tell me
Track Name: Final Act
I don’t know how to live like this
constant silence behind these four walls instead of bliss

It'd be easier to swerve to the right
forget all the magic, an end in sight

Final act, my show tonight, my show tonight
Final act, my show tonight, for my show tonight

Cards on the table
Willing not able, to be free

Stars in the sky
Peek through tight netting
Yearning for me

Final act, my show tonight, my show tonight
Final act, my show tonight, for my show tonight

Take this heart from me
I don’t need to watch it bleed
Take this heart from me
It’s failing, miserably

Too deep in, to begin again
to begin again
begin again, again, again
Track Name: That Way
Your smile, still on my lips
Gentle heart, weighed down with bricks

I see you today
Hold your hand, make everything okay
It should be that way

I open my eyes and the world quickly fades

Painted murals, walls a happy grey
Soft light pours through
Hanging plants gently sway

I feel you next to me, breathing sweetly
But I stir
Why can’t you stay

I open my eyes and the world quickly…fades

I will wait for you
I will wait
I will wait for you
I will wait

Thirty years is a long time
But I close my eyes and time passes by

Please hold on tight, love
I open my eyes, shut them quick, can I go back to this
Track Name: Crooked Ways
You see beyond the cracked smile
Broken fences lined up for miles

When thoughts are jumbled and a wreck
You’re right there to keep me in check

And you stay
And you wait

It doesn’t matter the phase
I’ll set the damn thing ablaze

Walking round talking shit
throwing tantrums, making fits

And you stay
And you wait

These are my crooked ways
Promises all my days
These are my crooked ways
Navigating the haze

Sometimes the words don’t come out right
They bruise, they burn, they start a fight

A hairline crack, not split in two
Cover it up, dab a little glue

And you stay
And you wait

These are my crooked ways
Promises all my days
These are my crooked ways
Navigating the haze
Track Name: Yellow Cake
Sweetness makes my body ache

I don't always know where to begin
Flying high above the clouds
Reaching for my win

Looks simple, like a yellow cake
Shove it all in your face....
But it's a give and take

I don't always want to start again
It's a long climb down down
Hesitate diving in

That simple cake, a tasty mistake
Fills the space, my plate
But, it’s a give and take

Give and take
I like the taste
So I take and take
Until my body aches

Sit and judge on top a cloud
View of crumbs is scattered round
Staring down, do you feel proud
Tell me now, do you feel proud

Give and take
I like the taste
So I take and take
Until my body aches

Give and take
I like the taste
So I take and take
Until my body aches
Track Name: Tassology
Just one more
Who’s keeping score, such a chore
Gold fades away
but the callousness stays
How ‘bout another pour

No glitter rays from this gold shade

Stuffed in jars
Unapparent scar, seen from afar
Big dreams sink, before I blink
Flushed away idealities
And I know, and I know
When I over think, I’m at the brink
And I know, and I know
You don’t feel the same as me

Scattered
Scattered all around
Shattered
Without a sound
Scattered
Scattered all around
Shattered
it goes down down down down

Patterns taking shape

Another drop, another drop
I can’t tell what they say
Another drop, another drop
I can’t tell what they say

Scattered
Scattered all around
Shattered
Without a sound

Patterns take shape, I can’t tell what they say
Track Name: Wait
Is this all just a silly game you play
Make me your prey

Don’t wanna fight or say
So, wipe that smirk, it’ll stick that way

Holding on to hearts so full of yesterday

Dim the light it’s pouring through
Muddy grey, a sad shade of blue

Nothing’s it’s natural hue
So take cover, what’s wrong with you

Moving on, new field of view

Wait, wait
Such a mess, but a mess we made
Wait, wait, wait
Don’t just throw it all away
Wait

I let this go to my head
Happy, sad, just another tear shed

Play dress up and wear our smiles
So grab your tie, let’s fake it in argyle

Wait, wait
Such a mess, but a mess we made
Wait, wait, wait
Don’t just throw it all away

The slides click, we reminisce
No one promised constant bliss
The truth hurts, and it’s a lie
Cultivate, don’t let it die
Don’t let it die

Wait, wait
Such a mess we made
Wait, wait

Wait, wait
Don’t just throw it all away
Track Name: Holding On
Dressed in black
see the world in color
muddied together
bleeds and runs over

A vacant chair
and a broken heart
fingers laced so tight
alone and lost, worlds apart

I’m quickly fading
Hope’s dissipating

Thoughts so numb
crumpled soul’s in pieces
the weight of what’s missing
shouts through the creases

Distant fantasy
where two hearts beat
Rescued brokenness
Shame takes a back seat

I’m quickly fading
Hope’s dissipating
Breathe deep, so deep
but there’s nothing left in me

How do I keep holding on
Holding on, on my own
Grasping tight to fantasies
When there’s nothing good in me

How do I keep holding on
Holding on, on my own
Praying for a victory
When there’s nothing left in me
Track Name: Oceans
Good morning sunshine
The waves stretch their arms for miles
They’re warmed by your light

Let’s build something beautiful
leave the shore behind, littered in gold

Breathe you in
Drift away
The forces are so strong
Doesn’t take much to hold on
Wrapped in your arms I’ll stay

Let’s build something beautiful
leave the shore behind, littered in gold

You have oceans inside you
They’re deeper than you ever even knew
You have oceans inside you
Awakened by those beautiful blues

I walk these shores
Hand in hand and always, forever, love you more
Because of who you are
Track Name: Gravity
So much easier to live in a world where there is no reality
just keeps on spinning
No one to call you out, everything and nothing hurts
so start again
no finality

But I know
There’s this hope
This broken soul’s now a part of me

Damaged, bottomless well hidden inside this empty shell
just keeps on spinning
Don’t breathe-in-too deep or the tears will
swell
and spill over

But I know
You have this hope
Your broken soul’s now a part of me

And I know
Just how beautiful
what was and is to come because of gravity

But how do I fill this hole
And how do I love you so
How do I fill this hole
When you’re the only one who loves me for me

Leap of faith, stepped off that balcony
I’m still falling
Please say you’ll catch me

Cuz I know
We have this hope
Our broken soul lives in tragedy

And I know
Just how beautiful it all is
because of gravity
