Track Name: melt
when you're the king of the basement
you stay up at night
you turn off the lights
when you're hiding under blankets
the rest of them cried
circling blind

when you were searching for an answer
to the meaning of life
your flowers died
you would always get so jealous
that time never ends
but it ends your life

i feel so inside
you seem so tongue tied
i'm coming through you
i'm coming through you
Track Name: better
watch them float away
into the great
landscapes forever

paradise serene
the endless dream
a silent panic scream

what is better, what is better?

what if there's nothing there when i get there
in the ground, with no sound, what is better?
what is better?

if heaven did exist, i wouldn't believe in it
nothing lasts forever
now that would make me sick
and things would get real dull real quick
if i could never go to hell to see who i have now become

buried children scream
it doesn't mean anything
to pray at night and act like you're a king

what is better, what is better, what is better?

what if there's something there and i don't get there
in the clouds, orchestral sounds, what if i'm better,
if i'm better, if i'm better darling
better, better, better

i would rather bleed than have the answers to everything
Track Name: hold(on)
home like a bird in the leaves of a tree
careless and free, like the rocks by the sea
just be careful
what a beautiful scene, how the colors can sing
it's the nature of things
just be careful

how it hurts you when you fall
when the turbulence is strong
hold on, hold on

i've been told now please don't touch the glass
in this exhibit, it's cold and dark and critics seem to laugh
i'm on display, the museum of pain and fear is set
with self portraits that represent my flaws to some extent
hold on

how it hurts you when you fall
when the turbulence is strong
hold on, hold on
hold on, hold on
Track Name: try
no i don't need it

stand up and breathe
i'm just trying to
call the police
i don't want you to
let go of me
i could scream
but no ones listening
Track Name: hold(me)
hold me
fear me

how do you want things to be?
reality distinguished
fearless of disease
sometimes i'm the warden of your body
and it makes me feel like flying

hold me

these neurons of love
digital pleasures wearing off on me
this unholy stimulation feels so wrong
how could you operate the screen
run slowly, wizard in a dream
sometimes i'm a prisoner in my body
and it makes me feel like dying
Track Name: velvet
burn our eyes out with screens
corporations fund our dreams
pdf memories
streaming conscious mp3s

sirens sound, hide and seek
deconstructed harmony
silent night, rite of spring
any animal can sing

i've slipped around
but honestly, does any of this matter?
i bet your flattered
your breath is slow
it's killing me now, this night might last forever

i felt lonely, the things that i'd type
felt so desperate, late at nigh, drink some wine
once i met her, a beautiful girl, nothing mattered
in this world, touch so real
now she's gone
where did she go? i'll never know
she's gone, she's gone

they're birthed in mud
these leather snakes
will harness you forever
and make you better
let's figure it out
but honestly, does any of this matter?
some disaster
hell i'd rather
try laughter
Track Name: love
i would never hurt you
unless you really want me to
i think that it'd be wrong
but I know that I'm right for you
i do the same things you do
i even do your voice at night
is this love? i think I'm in love

for a second there I, fell over
if you go anywhere, I will follow
I'm your number one fan, your my idol

i'll never let you leave my sight
your clothing fits me just right
i think that we are gonna get
a long real soon
i don't ever want to fight
baby just turn off the lights
and pretend it never happened
that sudden kiss
this wedding ring
just everything

for a second there i, fell over
if you go anywhere, i will follow
im your number one fan, your my idol

even if you're scared
you should know my name now
it's been almost 4 years
since we have been a thing now
you should take a chance on me
i think it's kind of weird, when you don't speak to me

for a second there I, fell over
when you go anywhere, I will follow
I'm your number one fan,
your my idol
Track Name: break
hold on, to your window
dangle cautiously, the outside
world can be quite scary
i've been, stuck in limbo, for centuries
these dreams are getting so much harder to believe

it's in your mind, that everything's alright
well, now it's time

why didnt i ever come home that night?
why didnt i ever come home that night?
why didnt i ever come home that night?

i'm not good at love
but i can find someone whose good enough

it's in your mind, that everything's alright
well, now it's time

why didnt i ever come home that night?
all this time spent racing, lately, i cant find the end
Track Name: dreams
teah me how to think
about their lives
let the tv speak
and kill their wives

fearless crown
fearful town

the earth will burn one day
but that's alright
id rather suffocate
then ride my bike

fearless crown
fearful town

think of all the possiblities
of influencing crime
if a book can make you think that
theres a man in the sky
you never go outside anymore
the hooded people always carry knives
