I'll tell it like it is I can't hold back anymore There's no way in Hell we can avoid what we have in store It's too important to keep silent (a) bullet from a gun Time will never heal us All we can do is run Don't shoot the messenger, You might not like what you hear The words fall out like an avalanche and you just can't keep clear It's like this every night, Elephant in the room At least we're being honest There's nothing we can do Chorus Solo Chorus There's no going back No chance of staying on your feet

Burned my pride, when I asked to see you Give it a try, was it asking so much? All this investment paid no return Sometimes you want it too much Attempt(ing) to feel a rush Is your time too precious to share The chemicals in our blood I felt a reaction You must have stumbled and spilled along the way Sometimes you want it too much Attempt(ing) to feel a rush Now I can still flip the switch and I still want to turn you on Sometimes you want it (oooooh-ooooh) Sometimes you want it too much Attempt(ing) to feel a rush Now I can still flip the switch and I still want to turn you on and I can still flip the switch 'cause I still want to turn you on

Relinquish 04:39
So many thoughts of you I just can't shake There's a part of you in me when we part, you just can't take You're an outfit I cannot remove When all I want to do is be in the nude But I want to play with someone new I already gave my all to you (now I want it back I could use it here right now) Now the future has been compromised Our dreams never intertwined But our lives fit together just fine Which is why it's so hard when... I want to play with someone new but I already gave my all to you Oh-oh (repeat) Now I'm wishing I could just turn around, turn around and extinguish All these feelings I'm taking so long, so long to relinquish because... You're my mirror image, You're the other side of my heart I don't feel separated Even now we're so far apart Oh-oh (repeat)

47 Seconds is about all I can last 'Till my brain drags up the best parts of my past Bittersweet reflections of my days spent with you Tell me again, did we say that we're through? I'm dreaming Dreaming Won't you build a shelter for me Got to find some shelter for me Wanna find a shelter for me I want you to build a shelter for me Try to get an understanding, try to stay on my feet Still tryin' to pinpoint what's goin' on Because I remember every detail, though I'm tryin' to forget Still tryin' to pinpoint what's goin' on I'm dreaming Dreaming I'm quiet, but I'm screaming Chorus Still Dreaming Still Screaming Chorus Gotta find (repeat)

Corkscrew 04:58
You're the fear that's growing It's my weakness showing Don't look for feelings Can we just get along? There's no magic spark No brightness in the dark I can't lead you to The X that marks the spot I'm not your golden ticket I'm not your way inside You've only proven it never pays to be too kind You keep turning this device Seeking lightning in a bottle when all we're destined for is pouring down the drain Check the expiration date You're mad at me but it's only fate You keep insisting that our lives are drawn together I'm not your higher ground This is no paradise Stop waiting around You'll only get more of the same And it's a shame cause all you do, you keep on turning You keep turning this device Seeking lightning in a bottle When all we're destined for is pouring down the drain It's the same old shame pouring down the drain

It's been raining Ever since we met Let's exit the vehicle and just get...wet yeah, uh-huh, aw yeah Feel the drops On your skin I'm not looking for shelter, but a place to get in yeah... Feels like it's beginning to pour Just relax, I think we can stand some more yeah... Lost control Can't turn the wheel Lost control

You can't keep your story straight Why you're staying up so late And now it's catching up with you Because you fabricated the truth We didn't even need any proof And it doesn't matter what you say It doesn't matter what you say I bet you think you're pretty hot You've gone and fibbed your Papa And it doesn't matter what you say It doesn't matter what you say I'm just gonna drive Till someone Tells me where I'm going Chorus You're coming down with something I can see it in your eyes Any last words Before you meet your maker? And it doesn't matter what you say

Aftermath 01:26
Will I survive What is it that's keeping me here Why am I wrapped up with my old outdated fears After the aftermath, is there anything to look forward to or will I just keep looking back

about

It started as a sonic experiment. Five years and a few life-altering events later, it became a collection of haunting musical journeys through which fragments of memories are kept inside musical photographs. Featuring nine tracks that weave through sentimental ballads and downbeat electronic rhythms as well as some anguished, noisy rockers.
