Track Name: meet me at tek büfe
maybe i'll say
thinking sideways
failing to see
this switch flips me
tuned out for now
won't you back down
picking up what i put down
can i get lost can i drown
nothing in this wave we find
feeling like i found my mind
go on do tell
sinking so well
red wine wound up
drown in this cup
Track Name: shaken
doing fine
vacant i hide
shakin inside
comin alive
reasons why
acting up
Track Name: year of the foton
catch me me i've been wrong
get sick come along
take me there sometime
come on cross the line
how can i see now
silver in this cloud
guessing i've got doubt
one thing i left out
crawling in the dark
always late to start
Track Name: maybe i'm someone else
what else can i say
this is here to stay
drink to kill some time
if only it would die
i'm coming to find you there
i'd rather not be here
maybe i'll find myself
perhaps i'm someone else
tell me once again
how can i pretend
to be this thing i'm not
i've given all i've got
Track Name: the pressure is off
whos calling me out
whats keeping you down
the pressure is off
why dont' i
i've been wrong
way too long
set this straight
it won't wait
nothing in mind
this mistake
only to try
why cant' i
Track Name: this bright scar
just one more
hit the floor
makes no sense
i'm on the fence
why do i miss the mark so much
and ruin everything i touch
one last sip
on a trip
head in the stars
this bright scar
Track Name: when you get me
this heart is arrested
no room to move
there's so much invested
but nothing to lose
it's come to a limit
i've done all i can do
when you get me all alone
tell me i just wanna know
i've done everything to show
it's on the table dying slow
you're one in a billion
how can i express
just searching for something
beyond what's left
elements of what we are
get this of my chest
take all or take nothing
what to suggest
Track Name: bad horsie
stop me when i say
tell me am i wrong
think i'll hit the sky
or crash again while trying
faked it
it's comin back again
that's all
that's how it's gonna end
Track Name: forever seems so short
come grip to sky with me
it's another story
we'll get so high you see
forget it's morning
take it down
i know you're around
make it loud
i'm not coming down
we both know it's a shame
we can't keep on flying
heavy as it may seem
you're still what i think
Track Name: he already knows
have we won this war
sometimes less is more
did we win that fight
i'm wrong and you're right
tell me something new
anything will do
tell me i'm alright
if you must please lie
i've been singled out
my head is in the ground
fixed what wasn't broke
tell me is a joke
waiting for these
i belong to
couldn't help it
can you crack this shell
can i breathe so well
choking on the fumes
not a single bloom
lost some of your heart
where do i even start
don't know where to begin
see the mess we're in
