Track Name: Shut Up, Leopold
Do they write your name on the walls
can you feel them staring? ...You don’t.
Well you’re screaming now, you wont quiet down.
Well they’re screaming now, they won’t quiet down.

Does you’re skin burn // does the truth hurt?

Well you’ve lost yourself in their breath
putting ear to shell to find the voice
that follows you.
Track Name: Hunger Blood
As we fold our maps once again,
we are taken back where we began
to the places that we had once been
but never were again.

And we’ll be taken by the wolves
of our demands
who’s hunger blood thickens
and beacons us back home
where we belong.

so take me back.

so take me home
Track Name: Ghosts
We’re not the same // a wave of change has swelled and swept us into the water
A year has passed and gone since you would hold
me dear // hold me dear.

But I’d swim the ocean to bring you back home.

You’re like the feeling of being home // You’re like
the feeling of being home // But you like the comfort
of being home alone.

Well, I’ve made a lot of mistake for you // and now I’m a lonely ghost.

As we drive in your car // I can see the city lights
in your eyes And I just cant stand the sight // so I
close mine.

We are just lonely ghosts
Track Name: Spaces
i. Oh, I have grown to know that we are all the same
in the end
And We have grown to learn to widen our spaces
when we grow too near

But maybe we just need to breath,
to take a deep breath and see our mistakes.
To stare them in the face.

ii. To accept is to forgive and forget
to tear down these walls and bare it all
To enjoy the light with dark is to accept // what sets us apart.

iii. armistice.
Track Name: Hands
I. Take the paintings off the walls // and all the
things you thought made you who you were.
We are not who used to be.
So believe no patterns // we burned them to the
ground // and we’d do it all again.
We are not who we used to be.

II. Stepping out of shells; born again in moments
louder than words can be projected.

III. Why do we hang onto // that which holds us back.
We will never walk on mountains // with these
We will never love ourselves // with these
Track Name: Growing
As the sun sets down on this town // there is yellow. // And everything grows bright green.
And you are growing // you are growing // you are.
And its fleeting // its fleeting the way we love.

So we will leave this town // and we will learn to grow
We will leave this town // and we will learn to grow // on our own.

So take me back. // You cant take it back // You cant take it back // You cant take it back // So take me back. // So take me back.
