Track Name: Damp Room
With answers in my head
I understand
Preach it till I swear by
taking everything

False imagination
draining all my patience
You set the pace and
tell me I'm not changing

Pressure slows the time
I wonder why
Ease into my mind
and shake me from inside

Presence break my stride
just for a while
Antique intimidation
Trade it all in time

False imagination
draining all my patience
You set the pace and
tell me I'm not changing

Pressure slows the time
I wonder why
Ease into my mind
and shake me from inside
Track Name: The Choir Boys
Pull me closer now
Three little steps just to make you feel right
Hold me closer now
The sweat on your lips just makes me feel right

It'll take to much to bother
Never pass from one to another
Second only to a feeling so treasured
I think I only want these feelings for pleasure

Pull me closer now
Three little steps just to make you feel right
Hold me closer now
The sweat on your lips just makes me feel right

It'll take to much to bother
Never pass from one to another
Second only to a feeling so treasured
I think I only want these feelings for pleasure

When you hold it all
the record is starting to skip now
I swear I feel you
I swear I feel you in this
Said I wanted to take you

I want, I want, I want into your head

I can feel this turning into

I can feel this turning into
something you never wanted
Track Name: $400 Phone Bill
She wakes up in the tide
Sunlight graze her eyes
Reflecting on forever
Falling through the sky

Diamond drops forever
Line the ground beneath her
To see she wont
To see she wont try

You walk in say you know my pressure
Tiptoe around my other pleasures
and now you wont
and now you wont try

You know, you know
I want to go on
In every way
You know, you know

You walk in say you know my pressure
Tiptoe around my other pleasures
and now you wont
and now you wont try

Still tough
To to turn it all
To turn it all
Still right
To fall away

You're the voice of reason
When you want to
When you want to be
I wont trust that feeling
Hold you close to every word you say

You're the voice of reason
When you want to
When you want to be

Say you wont go
Track Name: Interlude
Watch me
Pulling closer now
I can feel for anything else

Pull me
Piece by piece and then
I can feel for anything else

Stepping over
Drunken figures
Broken figures
I'm forgiven

Eyes are watching
Ever closer
Always closer
I'm forgiven
Track Name: A Stellar Close
Another place
Far beyond a remedy
So out of reach
I can feel the presence
Lying there between us

If you're bored of the pleasure
I'll tear it to pieces
Let nothing come between us
No nothing comes between us

Pour me the protest
Mixed with the memory
I'm drunk on belief
It's so hard to see
Asking me for answers I can hardly repeat

and if you want for regression
Build the past from the present
Let nothing come between us
No nothing comes between us

Let me think it over again
I can feel your breath shake
Drifting in the moment and then
Holding onto everything

Let me think it over again
I can feel your breath shake
She turns to
Look at me now
I've never wanted anything else

and today feels like the very first time
The very first time I've known what I've wanted
It's you alone
Nothing feels the same now

and today feels like the very first time
The very first time I've known what I've wanted
It's you alone
Nothing feels the same now
Track Name: The Existentialist
She's been practicing passion
It didn't get you anywhere did it
All across rooftops I swear
I've never seen you anywhere else

I'll walk in to check your pace
Oh god I swear I've never seen anything
I'll walk in to check your pace
Oh god I swear I've never seen anyone
Quite like

I know that I'll fear the reason
You never said enough
Now it's never enough
You'll never miss the presence
It's never enough
It's never enough

She's been plugging the pretense
It didn't get you anywhere did it
All across rooftops I swear
I've never seen you anywhere else

I'll walk in to check your pace
Oh god I swear I've never seen anything
I'll walk in to check your pace
Oh god I swear I've never seen anyone
Quite like


I know that I'll fear the reason
You never said enough
Now it's never enough
You'll never miss the presence
It's never enough
It's never enough

Thought that this was open ended
An image of blind perfection
These traits are only casual treason
Traded for a force-fed feeling
