Stranger 03:10
Stranger some factors never falter some tears will never be shed I will never bind my eyes your ears will have me read let me roam and watch me wander but don't ever, ever be a stranger lips and tongues and hands may part but there's something very stubborn about my heart you let me in you brought me close the subtleties evoked a ghost risking destruction, I made my sting panic is impatient, a terrible thing let me roam and watch me wander but don't ever, ever be a stranger lips and tongues and hands may part but there's something very stubborn about my heart in our freedom we are falling is it love that gives us wings? open air and space for breathing strengthens the beauty we are seeking let me roam and watch me wander but don't ever, ever be a stranger lips and tongues and hands may part but there's something very stubborn about my heart

Tie & Untie a passion that results in sweaty sheets and sticky fingers an ever-moving moment that turns hours into seconds knots of legs and feet tie and untie, tie and untie, tie and untie forever doesn't exist, death, distance, or difference this will end, oh no, it can't be so the only sacrifice is an hour or two of sleeping the looks you give me, so much better than sleeping minuets of toes smash lovingly, smash 1-2-3, smash lovingly forever doesn't exist, death, distance, or difference this will end, oh no, it can't be so take out the words, the roses, the validation give our love a fighting chance thicker skin and stronger backs want more, more, more, I could, almost everyday

Betel Red 03:03
Betel Red I regret my desperation, I recant the stones I've cast harbouring insecurities burdening loaded masks I'll find comfort in my solitude and fill myself with peace dissolve impulse and cowardice, seek patience not defeat in silence I will await a greater understanding my role, my life, my influence, and a sense of what is fading I regret my great consumption I recant my selfish ways suckling and conspiring expecting, desiring more I'll find comfort in my solitude and fill myself with peace dissolve impulse and cowardice, seek patience not defeat in silence I will await a greater understanding my role, my life, my influence, and a sense of what is fading if my love can shelter some darkness from your eyes then all my love I offer to help you to the skies I'll stand naked in the fires of the world strip me of my weaker skin and you'll be left with quite a girl

Trickle Down 04:16
Trickle Down I've been waiting for the love to trickle down I've been searching for any sign of rain the earth is dry enough and sad as it is the living hunger, they thirst for so much more when, will it all pour down? will you surrender your comfort and crown? if you are free, feel the power of love the love of power, seduces and drowns the distance between us has grown so vast but its not the differences that will last we are one family, we share one home divide and conquer to pleasure your own when, will it all pour down? will you surrender your comfort and crown? if you are free, feel the power of love the love of power, seduces and drowns there's no satisfaction in wanting more believing the void is anything but inside the comforts surround us, distractions galore but its what we're missing that's worth so much more when, will it all pour down? will you surrender your comfort and crown? if you are free, feel the power of love the love of power, seduces and drowns

The Wall and Cavern we're quite dissimilar after all you're two dimensional, you're a wall you're shallow and you're thin, quite unlike the one in Berlin when east met west, the wall did fall one side was painted, the other was grey hardened and naked, guarded by day it took a fool to get close, naive to the danger shot by the guards, spilled blood for a wager if you are a wall than I am a cavern twisting through shadows with light to return the echos may fade but I'm still full of song no use for defences, my insides are strong I refuse to be fearful, I refuse to withdraw no regret once rejected, better burned then left raw for love is abundant to transcend all despair but we must cultivate it, must be willing to share there's no excuse to be lonely, we make our own vacancies longing can empty our minds of our peace the flesh is both burden and temptation success so ugly, breeding infatuation the human race cannot be won are you chasing the bait, are you fleeing the gun? will you stand tall, high enough to exclude me? I refuse to climb, and just pretend to be free

So Much So Badly where do we go from here? where do we run off to? I can't stay here, I can't stand still I need to see far corners of many worlds but I'll miss you, I'll miss you night and day I need a part of you, I need a part of you, I need a – piece to fit in my pocket where do we go from here? There's no way I'll leave you when I'm on m'own, on my own, on my own I'm never, ever alone but I'll miss you, I'll miss you night and day I need a part of you, I need a part of you, I need a – piece to fit in my pocket where do we go from here? I don't want to loose you I can't hold on, I can't let go, I can't stand to hear that you'll never know but I'll miss you, I'll miss you night and day I need a part of you, I need a part of you, I need a – piece to fit in my pocket

Sugar and Poison flesh and bones, sugar and poison can't keep my secrets from my face we're both made of the same stuff we're both whispers and rambles and there's stuff on the inside that nobody sees I want to be open, I need to be free you can break my heart but you can't break me I can't stop hoping, I wont stop dreaming that love will find me in the end flesh and bones, sugar and poison can't keep my secrets from face I've tripped and I'm falling will I find my wings? will I soar up circles? will I reach the skies?
