Track Name: DAYDREAM
collapse the fear into something i can hold
and place beside me, and turn away from
there is a crackle of ozone in the air
damaged components
distance

STATIC
CONSTANT DECAY
SPLIT
FAR AWAY

somewhere, there's a space where this is just a daydream
i don't want to go there alone anymore

my vision peels away from reference and time
the corners of this space are bent and bright
i've never known the lucidity to stay with me
i can't break through

STATIC
CONSTANT DECAY
SPLIT
FAR AWAY

somewhere, there's a space where this is just a daydream
i don't want to go there alone anymore
tethered, reeling out, reality feels so distant
i can't hold on to anything
but you're here with me

somewhere, there's a space where this is just a daydream
i don't want to go there alone anymore
tethered, reeling out, reality feels so distant
i can't hold on to anything
but you're here with me.
Track Name: VOLTAIC
wires, blood, conductive
live enough to function
the warmth of the light in this moment
over-exposed, iridescent

TEAR ALL THE SKIN AWAY
PULL ALL THE STATIC OUT
WRAP US IN LAMBENT NOISE
I WANNA FEEL THIS MOMENT FLOWING UP MY THROAT

reflective chrome through the patchwork
bizmuth nails dig
as close to whole as we can get
saturated soul convulsing
child, crone, survival

death

TEAR ALL THE SKIN AWAY
PULL ALL THE STATIC OUT
WRAP US IN LAMBENT NOISE
I WANNA FEEL THIS MOMENT FLOWING UP MY THROAT

too much input
just how i want it
torn to fragments
with you ♡
Track Name: NOT COMING BACK
i know a place beyond the lines of this world
a different light falls on the fragments of your mind

the light hit the mountain
door is open and deep inside
the hand of a demon
plays with my mind

i step into the warmth and i'm not coming back
that place will take me and destroy all that i am
the vigilance and anxiety collapse
silhouette of my body into sand

i cannot feel the dread of memory when i'm there
barely real
the lightest touch through my hair

a home for the vespers
a place where we both can hide
we’ll stay here forever
now that it’s mine

i step into the warmth and i'm not coming back
that place will take me and destroy all that i am
the vigilance and anxiety collapse
silhouette of my body into sand

(i don't understand the cruel light of this place...)

i step into the warmth and i'm not coming back
that place will take me and destroy all that i am
the vigilance and anxiety collapse
silhouette of my body into sand
Track Name: YEARWOUNDS
she held her breath, thought catalyzed the panic
incandescent death hiding just beneath the epidermis
"oh not again," she thought - she'd told them she was just like them
and for a decade, she was

there is a desperation in the irises of her eyes
the marks from all the years that terror kept her whole
she learns the movements and she doesn't bat an eye when they break
all her brittle bones anymore

THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO BE
obscure the fractured self with practiced legitimacy
WHEN IT KILLS ME
i won't mind; there will be no difference on the inside

she got away, too burnt to feel the damage
months into days, and the fear she felt at those around her
never the same, she thought - empathy blurred into something more than she could take
so she ran

there is a desperation in the irises of her eyes
the marks from all the years that terror kept her whole
she learns the movements and she doesn't bat an eye when they break
all her brittle bones anymore

THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO BE
mutilate the soul under the lie of cold necessity
WHEN IT KILLS ME
i won't mind; there will be no difference on the inside

it hasn't changed, the terror hasn't gone away
but when she's safe for a moment, she knows
she peels away a tiny piece of all the noise she's built up to survive
and it's so...

THIS IS ALL I WANT TO BE
lost between the years, the static swallowed all belief in safety
I CAN'T TELL
if i'm alive
but something feels different on the inside ✰
Track Name: GOODBYE HORSES
you told me, i see you rise
but it always falls
i see them come, i see them go
you said "all things pass into the night"
and i say "oh no sir, I must say you're wrong
i must disagree, oh no sir, i must say you're wrong"

won't you listen to me

you told me, i've seen it all before
i've been there, i've seen my hopes and dreams lying on the ground
i've seen the sky just begin to fall
and you said, "all things pass into the night"
and i say, "oh no sir, i must say you're wrong
i must disagree, oh no sir, i must say you're wrong"

won't you listen to me

won't you listen to me

goodbye horses
I'm flying over you.
Track Name: LOVER'S LANE
i ran with the leaves paving the ground
blood slick on my hands, and only the sound
of hurried feet and rustling trees
closing in around me

you get what you want
it's coming to you
get what you want
you get what you want
it's coming to you
get what you want
soon

you brought me around to your side
smile like radiant sun, and eyes like ice
look for me to become a candid date
for your special games

you get what you want
it's coming to you
get what you want
you get what you want
it's coming to you
get what you want
soon

out here, just you and i
you make your move, and my reply
ice shatters in fading eyes
a total surprise

a total surprise
Track Name: WIRES+BLOOD
sleep and dissolve into forgetting
hold all the pieces carefully apart
there isn't anything outside the terror
there is no comfort in the morning air

i'm safe here, i know
but i can't make the feeling go

there is a capsule deep inside that's breaking
in the clear lucidity, a cloud of red
hold the pressure needed to contain it
the overwhelming dullness of dread
there is a feeling like i don't belong here
that's followed me as long as i can tell
i had a dream i left this place forever
relief consuming me as i fell.
Track Name: NATURE GIRL
the voltage in my blood and in my skin
crackles and erodes clouded reticence
the pressure in my skull makes it hard to think
but i won't let tonight become where i've been

if i could keep my memories
away from the dread and anxiety
(who would i be?)
i want to live, i want to feel
i'm tired of feeling unreal
(i'm more than this)
i want to stay, but i'm afraid
i don't want the safety to go away
(but anyway)

i am alive
i'm here tonight

the movement in my chest, i can't explain
a frequency like death without any pain
my skin is held intact by the lightest wind
is this what it's like to be alive again?

if i could stay a certain way, if i could feel every day
(i'd fall apart)
if i could have a different life, could i look myself in the eye?
(would i know why?)
i want to stay, but i'm afraid
i don't want the safety to go away
(but anyway)

i close my eyes
and dream of light.
Track Name: SOMEDAY, TOGETHER
and after everything, i know why i was scared to death
it's still inside me now, but i know its name
and it doesn't have to be the only thing in my head
i guess i'm pretty fucked up, i guess i'm pretty far gone
i feel scared and weak
but you're here with me~

someday, together
we'll shine

and when i sleep
i still dream that the fear and pain will be there forever
but i hold on to this quiet fantasy
and someday soon we'll be together

someday, together
we'll shine

someday...
