Track Name: Die
I didn't hear the footsteps. I just woke, and it was gone. Like a thief in the night whispering that all the things that keep you up are happening. I can see the storm coming, I see the lock on the bathroom door closing. I thought I was nothing without resilience, well I am nothing now. Some things were born to die, but I can't find a way to leave it, and I don't even know what it's going to take to bury it. I'm barely breathing, eyes shut, suffocating, because I can feel the storm coming and I can't wait. Some things were born to die, but I can't find a way to leave it, and I don't even know what it's going to take to bury it because we've got a sickness alive within us, dragging us down to the bottom. We get tired of the best things so we find a way to break them, because we've got a sickness alive within us, dragging us down to the bottom.
Track Name: Fifteen
Yeah we're alive, but parts I thought invincible at 15, I watched them die because it's so easy to say you see it when you can't see it, to say you'll change when you can't change. Now we're both looking at the other like "I am done with this, I am done with you, you'll never be happy" and we're both thinking "I don't feel anything about anything, I don't know what's wrong with me." Let it all slow down till it's still, till it stops. Till the Marshes dry out and the way back is lost, because all the straight lines I've been following, they've been curving all along. And I'm so done with numbing myself away, just waiting for the right time and the right kind of place. Impossible things. Thoughts like white hot static. I don't know what's wrong with me. Is it all in my head? Because I can't tell. Is it all in my head? Because I can't fucking tell anymore.
Track Name: Gaps
She's like me, she never leaves an escape route, because you can't run when you're compressed and on the edge; when you can't find the missing part and there's just gaps where it always used to be. Alone. Fuck it, we don't need anyone. I swear that I don't mean the things I say when I can't hold myself together. It's the devil that you love you struggle with and you bring it out of me. She's like me; impossible to hold it in. There's only so long you can hide the panic before it floods into everything, through every gap where it's been before. When I'm with her, fuck it, I don't need anything. I swear that I don't mean the things I say when I can't hold myself together. It's the devil that you love you struggle with and you bring it out of me. I see it all, the damage that we've caused. It's complicated but I love you, every part that's still intact and the devil in your gaps.
Track Name: Horror
Once I start I can't stop, I want it all till it's gone. When you're lost in the middle, looking up but coming down, you unravel. When you sink into silence; walls up and eyes open, you see it all but don't say a word. Close the windows, pull the blinds down, put my back on the bedroom door to keep it all out and this panic in. I've got to think that we're fixable because you're stuck in my skin and I can't scratch you out. I've always had these violent dreams of bodies and buildings burning down and I'm running and running and I can't look back behind at what's chasing. I wake up cold sweat, lifeless, pounding headache but I used to love the escape. Now I finally get it when parents say they'd kill for their children because I don't sleep deep, I am permanently awake. I can't think about escape. Close the windows pull the blinds down, put my back on the bedroom door to keep it all out and this panic in. I've got to think that we're fixable because you're stuck in my skin and I can't scratch you out. Why is it impossible to tell you what I'm thinking when it's all I think about? Sometimes I've got to hear the voices out before I can shut them down. Close the windows pull the blinds down, put my back on the bedroom door, burn the boats and flood the tunnel. Wall off the island and throw me inside it. Sometimes to get better you've got to get worse first.
Track Name: Cave
Shining down, headlights flood in through windows nailed shut. They light up things that are best kept hidden. You were staring down at your hands, while I watched the dust falling from footsteps up above. You know I hate it when we push it all under the mattress, and I know you hate it when your mind and legs are restless. We are caged animals down here, waiting to die. So sick of the plaster over cracks, of the paint over the damp, of lights that burn bright just to blink out and all the weight that holds us down. I know you hate it and you're tired of riding it out. We are caged animals down here, waiting to die.
