Track Name: you can't roll dice in the sand
Until my lungs collapse or burst
until my tirade tires out and I'm convinced I'm worse for the wear now
until this goes past my trying
and if I cannot be the sound then I can be the reason for sirens
There's blood on my hands of my creation

My heart will flow with desperate intentions to be noticed by you

Until this breaks or breaks me down
until I've had all I can take until they call me done, lost and gone now
until this goes past my trying
and if I cannot be the sound then I can be the reason for sirens
There's blood on my hands of my creation

My heart will flow with desperate intentions to be noticed by you
and I will pose as excellence until it's called a fable or the truth

Until I can't move, until I'm breathless
Darling, I was born to be far more than restless
Until I can't do what I'm saying
I will push and pull until I find a way in

My heart will flow with desperate intentions to be noticed by you
and I will pose as excellence until it's called a fable or the truth
Track Name: second star to the right
What a way to come down, love
lost inside these walls
Storming on our defenseless hearts
I recall
losing sight of our weakness,
high hopes falling hard
It's difficult to see this through
then fall apart

But she will be alive
so do we carry on?
From the corners of my mind
I tried. This is impossible.

Begging all your forgiveness
'cause i could not give you life
I'd rather clips my wings
than a miracle of mine
And I tried to be your savior
but I could not save a one
I can't forget your name and it's a goddamn shame
that you're gone. Gone.

But she will be alive
so do we carry on?
From the corners of my mind
I tried. This is impossible.

Fate lost its decency with you gone
while love cast your name for both of us
Our one, my darling can you come home?
My faith has disappeared overnight and I feel like a ghost
I got so sick and tired from it I couldn't see at all.

But she will be alive
til then we carry on
From the corners of my mind
I tried. Is this impossible?
Track Name: in kensington gardens (interlude)
Can you see the way out?
I kept falling down in your wake.
I haven't seen the daylight
since you slipped from your place.
But I slowed down.
I kept getting darker and dazed
hearing goodbyes when I prayed for your grace.
Track Name: paper for grapes
Dread this feeling from its start
I'll keep sounding the alarms
to reason why
My God help me should've known better but I
was never obvious or keen
but still they found me listening
tied in knots,
hoping this would never stop
But all we got were worried hearts
designed to fall apart.
Broke and fled the call to arms
'cause I could not

hold this ghost.
Pulls me down until I'm criminal
until I break the world I know.
Strip my conscience and my will to hope.
The words come out, but they're always wrong

We keep praying this machine
won't fall short of everything.
Is love enough?
Bless our hearts, dear, should've known better but
we keep pushing for the odds.
What makes futility end?
When does all the bullshit stop
'cause I cannot

hold this ghost.
Pulls me down until I'm criminal
until I break the world I know.
Strip my conscience and my will to hope.
The words come out, but they're always wrong

Can we lift, lift the earth and the curse that comes with the gift?
I couldn't make the climb to indifference.
Is it scarce or remiss? Or have we come to miss all of it?

Oh this ghost pulls me down until I'm criminal
I can't let go
Can you break my fall if I'm falling all life long?
And carry me over this wreck?
And if my will is wrong you can lay me with the lost
and let me meet what you forget
