FREQUENCY
Put down that fatal dream and fall awake again. The last time you saw me here you said you'd threaten me.
Walls down and borders free the lessons of the past are waning. Face fair, but your focus black. The message of your core is staining. Halls bare but your orders stand. You'll have no heated fight. I see you there haunting me.
And I don't know your frequency
Break down our failing home. Your secret pain is safe with me now. You know you're on your own. Your fragile friends have gone away now. It's like the story told of famines lived but never tried and treasures lost unrealized.
No, I can't be your beating heart when your life has gone from me. Like waiting for that fatal dark, you've pulled the shades on me.
And I don't know your frequency.

LOST LIKE YOU
TRACK TIME: 4m 49s
LOST LIKE YOU
When yesterday is done put me close say I'm the only one. Beat it out of me and pray I come. If tomorrow night is gone will right now be all it would have been? Tastes just like the sea while I return.
Lost like you. I wonder where I'd come to? Found like me. Perfection has its downside, too.
The moon is full. Will your neck be sore like yesterday and will you still reset the clock? The streetlamp is out. You're walking home in danger. I just hope you've tied your shoes.
Lost like you. I wonder where I'd come to? Found like me. Perfection has its downside, too.
I'd never be as lost like you. I'd never be as lost as you.
The moon is full. Will your neck be sore like yesterday and will you still reset the clock?

TRACK TIME: 3m 48s
SLEEPLESS
Inhale and exhale. I haven't slept in days. I hardly even knew you, but your memory remains
And I don't want to cry no more and I don't want to f*** no one and now you're the only one. It's been fun.
Tossing and turning. I haven't dreamt in days. I've tried to live without you, but I could never change my ways.
And I don't want to cry no more and I don't want to f*** no one and now you're the only one. It's been fun, Girl, it's been fun.

LURKING IN THE BALANCE
TRACK TIME: 5m 36s
LURKING
I know it's only night that brings me to this hall. The cold air grips my soul. They cannot hear my call. I wait alone within the reaches of this tomb and feel the life decay. So lonely in the gloom.
Deep inside. A fortune left for me with blood and brine that only I can see. Once for all; is how it used to be, but lost with time. A faded memory.
It's lurking in the balance and it's looking after me. I've hid so long in silence, but it knows just what I see. I can feel it's coming too soon and though it's dark I'll see by the light of your moon.
A false embrace. I'm slowly pulled from sight and you, my love, you won't have me tonight. What can it be that keeps me from my prize? You know it's true. Just look into my eyes.
It's lurking in the balance and it's looking after me. I've hid so long in silence, but it knows just what I see. I can feel it's coming too soon and though it's dark I'll see by the light of your moon.
But worst of all I won't see you again. Your words will never fall my way again, but worst of all I won't see you again.

GREEN
Earth feels, tonight in quiet coves. Left lonely needing one to hold. Unmoved by charm and life goes on when someone feels they're on their own.
A moments rest now while I tabulate the score. Is it three this week or is it four? I hope that my luck stays with me tonight.
A passing option and I'm trying to decide: Will she fall to me or fall behind? I can't explain it. It just seems right.
A wasted night away from home. Left lonely needing one to hold. Reached shore today. Was turned away. What makes the warmest night feel cold?

TRACK TIME: 3m 25s
XINJIAPO
I'll take the consequence whatever it means. You couldn't love me while you wear his ring. That's ok, though. I understand. It's hard to need someone who's second hand. Sometimes deception is the only way. Sometimes an understanding comes through pain. That's ok, though. I won't ask why. If you're my altar then faith's a lie.
Believe me. I want you to release me. I need you to want me to set you free. I'll set you free.
Words left unspoken are kept inside. There comes a time for you to swallow pride. It seems so wrong now it's not quite right when you go home to be with him at night. I sleep alone. I know you care, but times go by. You're never there. He questions you. You start to cry. It's harder yet to live a lie.
Believe me. I want you to release me. I need you to want me to set you free. I'll set you free.

TRUE
TRACK TIME: 5m 02s
TRUE
Explore my gain. Ignore my pain.
A broken silence. Spoken clearly. Reversed my vows I'd held so dearly. Your simple talk of sweet anointment made it easy to hide my disappointment.
These ropes of reason by which I'm bound, in your dark world they won't be found. Some lofty goals are set before me, but I can't even tell their story.
I told you that it's true. You don't believe it's true
Testing bounds of honesty while wasting time efficiently. I'm standing in this stagnant line succumbing to your endless whine.
I held you back, but now you've tried it. You drained my cup, my world inside it. So welcome to this life of mine now. You won't be leaving anytime now.
I told you that it's true. You don't believe it's true. You wish it weren't true.
I hear her calling me. Explore my gain. Ignore my pain. Testing bounds of honesty. Wasting time efficiently.

YOUR WILL
TRACK TIME: 6m 26s
YOUR WILL
Always left unspoken. Often you won't see. I can't know your reason why this life has no time or place left for me.
Thinking of you always. Dreaming of times we've shared. When rain falls down upon me you know that my treatment has been unfair.
White lights and cold rooms set course through my fear. Safe by your side now. The vision unclear. Held in your arms now. The air feels so chill. Breathing grows tense now. What hangs on your will?
Long days, restless nights call. Weekends, a lonely stay. Warm years all but gone now. Held on just to seize or to see the day.
White lights and cold rooms set course through my fear. Safe by your side now. The vision unclear. Held in your arms now. The air feels so chill. Breathing grows tense now. What hangs on your will?
Mornings, subtle warnings. Wasting a timeless score. Breathing, constant feeding. Always needing more.
White lights and cold rooms set course through my fear. Safe by your side now. The vision unclear. Held in your arms now. The air feels so chill. Breathing grows tense now. What hangs on your will?

FORTUNE TELLER
TRACK TIME: 4m 34s
FORTUNE TELLER
Was it written in the stars or sewn onto your heart? You claimed you never wanted me. I'd be the last to disagree, but still there's something telling me you're wrong...
I could see it in the cards. The end is never far. You took away a part of me. Though I would never want to leave, one must still accept their destiny and loss.
When reason always falls away the world provides me no restraint, but comes to me with open teeth and claws.
Was is held within the stars that the perfect match should part? You claimed you always needed me. Well I'd be the first to disagree, but still there's something telling me you're lost.
We can still escape the scars. Leave initials in the hearts.

Gone: the city. Too much sibilance. Not far enough from you. My luck... the snapshot fades some more and this day snapped in two.
No hint of streetlights now. The world is hushed and the comets smear. A perfect night alone. Without you.

HOME
TRACK TIME: 5m 30s
HOME
I can't always remember the things I said I would do, but if life lasts forever I will spend it with you.
The time I spend when I'm at home seems so worthless when you are gone and I want... I want you to know. Know that you're the one when the skies are grey and the days are long, you're the one who keeps the rain from falling on my heart.
Mornings at home on the weekend are times I've come to know and hate. Why must you always keep calling when it's my turn to sleep in late?
The time I spend when I'm at home seems so worthless cause I'm on the phone and I want... I want you to know. Know that you're the one when the skies are grey and the nights are long... You're the one. Yes, you're the one who breaks me down and tears my life apart.
Oh, when it's dark and I... I want to come home. I'd ask the faceless clock, but he'll tell me that I'll be here in the morning.
The time I spend when I'm at home seems so worthless when you are gone and I want... I want you to know. Know that you're the one when the skies are grey and the days are long... You're the one who keeps the rain from falling on my heart.
The time I spend when I'm at home seems so worthless cause I'm on the phone and I want... I want you to know.
