Track Name: hers
my darling, you're bleeding from your wounds // i've no bandages for you
but i'm not gonna leave you // no, you're not alone anymore
the knife cut so deep // your mind lay severed on the block
but i'm not gonna leave you // no, my love, you won't be alone
as you lie there bleeding out // the monsters crawl in from the darkness
but i'm not gonna leave you now // hold on, hold on as best you can
Track Name: hydrodynamics
we belong to the coastline
where it was all too dynamic
and i
couldn’t see
you pulled out
by the rip current

you and i were bred to fail
swimming into the anoxic
how we made it out of there
i don’t think i’ll ever know

your heart wasn’t built to withstand
the wave energy it now endures
and i
couldn’t see
the forest
for the trees

you and i were bred to fail
swimming into the anoxic
how we made it out of there
i don’t think i’ll ever know
Track Name: they were like wild beasts
what would they think of us // if we carried on this way?
it doesn't matter i guess // it had to happen someday
when i kissed you on the ferris wheel // i was really thinking of falling
it doesn't matter i guess // it had to happen someday
Track Name: nightmare
i wasn't aware you were drowning
i thought those screams were my own
and these nightmares i keep having
are fueled by things i'll never know

but i'm not sure what engines you seek
when you're alone, do you think of me?
and i'm not sure what sounds to make
when i'm alone, i'm always afraid

for such a pretty girl, you're always so angry
by something i did or something i might have said
now the knife i've driven between our shoulder blades
is dangerously close to cutting off our air supply

now i'm not sure what answers you seek
when you're alone, do you ever miss me?
and i'm not sure what sounds to make
when i'm alone, i'm always afraid
now i'm not sure what heartbreak you see
when you're alone, do you cry yourself to sleep?
and i'm not sure what sounds to make
what is the sound of a heart beginning to break…?
