Patterns 04:14
autonomy galaxies turning into spacetime not so exceeded by the black and white rainbows that bleed out colorblind light that never touched our eyes I was consumed by your aurora born from somewhere in the last world only time will tell us how this story goes have you ever been there a glass door between us keeping out the noise from the empty space between ourselves until one day a comet crashed and lightning struck the sky have you ever seen one? have you ever stopped? the feeling never stops the ceilings falling off the speaker never talks the wheels are coming off colorblind but I still see the patterns in my head criticized by everything that no one ever said yeah I still see the patterns I still see the patterns on everything everyone everywhere and knowing of why we wouldn’t be better off dead

Yarn 04:39
wake up, sunshine you stayed too long on the other side let’s get back to our home and our lights your bedroom’s burning up in flames you’ll never get out before it’s too late it’s your move you are now in the race show us in the sky tonight see the shadow smoke divide watch projections of shades she can make why does it feel like a living hell when we remember why fire at me with everything you can find I’ll come back on your side the animal has been revived it drags you back to the other side it may render your death in the night burning up all your breath and body she just can’t keep up with all the time that she spent defending fire at me with everything you can find I’ll come back at you with ice frozen, dreaming of an endless summer oceans forming in another world a world that is meant for us future generations connected by a memory in us does it burn like hell does it boil your blood when you stop pretending when you are the one that’s all you find when you were defending fire is the ever-changing beacon to the ending

he was not quite a man he was alive and breathing purpose revealed itself spaceboy sent down from the temple meant to make earth tremble a heart that doesn’t feel no shadow walks behind him but he’s alright he’s alright his mission, cure conditions of the mind, human binds vision impaired by the endless night a heart that doesn’t feel no shadow walks behind him but he’s heavy, wrecking, killing, burning everything and he gets what he wants and then loses it all in a second and he’ll never let it go ‘cause nothing will ever contend for his want for revenge

Twist 04:24
coiled up in telephone wire as you drip dry your brain can’t water log me anymore, phase out the pain and all the people that you knew are twisting away coiled up in telephone wire as you drip dry your brain and the power lines above hardwired to the land our current overflows our minds, we do what we can coiled up in telephone wire, untangled from the day understand me when I leave you it’s cause I want to stay I was caught in a loop born into déjà vu while we wait to be found with the wires in our heads calculate who controls what goes in and what comes out when we peak, burrow down to our desires in the ground that’s enough of me cut the line set me free

Cold Sun 04:02
overhead I see a premonition the cold sun is making a transition all the poor little souls that never see the light of day and the storm rolls in and the birds fly away it feels like something’s wrong why don’t you run the shadow of the sun yes my darling it comes for you you know that you want it and it’s made for you trapped in a basement with nowhere to move forsake yourself and find your one the very earth, it has become her shackles she walks alone with roses and red apples I can’t bear the thought of what would happen next if she ignores the beating feeling in her chest it feels like something’s wrong why don’t you run the shadow of the sun yes my darling it comes for you you know that you want it and it’s made for you trapped in a basement with nowhere to move forsake yourself and find your one

Chemical X 04:55
my lungs trapped in bars my arms chained to hands myself aligned with my spine my head drowned in clouds what now? and she lets me know where my soul leads and I let her know when my heart bleeds what has changed so far was nothing we deserved what will come along will surely be unsure I feel feel it come it burns like blood it’s love it’s here from home up above I want you now my dear my shining sun

Woods 04:19
hey you, let’s go where shadows hide ooh, Ooh what is this place? could it be God where is the one who guides the lost ghosts surround me possessed by good destined to live in alien woods pray on the weak tangled feet
9.
do you believe in circumstances? is that not what you thought brought you here? why would we ever want to leave this place? we have nothing to fear if only dark eyes if only love was never-ending every time I ask myself is this really happening? I hear no answer of course if I did why would I believe if only if only I was strong enough to be scared if only you could show me what you’re made of you might try but there is no excuse for you no excuse for you there is no excuse for you there’s no excuse in this room you will wait to meet the final boss spent too much time in the sea gotta come up for air sometimes when only one word from your mouth will come back to follow you round there is no excuse for you there is no excuse for you there is no excuse for you there’s no excuse
