I Remain

I'm wearing the same clothes every single day 
Vibrant colours all around me while I fade and fade and fade 
I've been here so long I've made my home 
In the space between the lines of monochrome 
Oh, all this time I'm taking 

I feel like everything is changing but I, I still feel the same 
and I feel like memories are aging but I, I still feel the pain 
Although I try to break old ties, I remain, I remain, I remain 

The sunlight is clean but it's wasted on my face 
and every good thing I create, I erase, erase, erase 
I've been here so long I've been crossed out 
Like the right answer you had but gave to doubt 
Oh, all this time I'm taking 

I feel like everything is changing but I, I still feel the same 
and I feel like memories are aging but I, I still feel the pain 
Although I try to break old ties, I remain, I remain, I remain 

And time, isn't what I need 
No, time, it isn't what I need 
I just need to feel alive again, again 
I feel like everything is changing but I, I still feel the same 
and I feel like memories are aging but I, I still feel the pain 
Although I try to break old ties, I remain, I remain, I remain 

 

 

Cedar + Fir

I know things just don't go back to how they were... 
I know at the game of love I'm still an amateur 

Why did you pick me from the ground, I'm green I'm still growing 
In the air, I'll drown 
I think it's time you let me down 

You'll find you are always on my mind 
For me you sing but you are meant for bigger things 
So I can't long for how we were 
cedar and fir, cedar and fir 

You know you don't have to grow just where you're planted 
Branch out, don't take this heart you've got for granted 

Why do you keep me around? I can't go where you're going 
I can't live on your cloud 
I think it's time you let me down 

You'll find you were always on my mind 
For me you sing but you are meant for bigger things 
So I can't long for how we were 
cedar and fir, cedar and fir

 

 

Modern Day Maestro

The shots I took were overexposed 
The moments were lost, the images cold 
Down to the last drop of youth 
The fountain's a mountain of 90 proof 

A baton in hand 
I'm calling the tune 
The ballad of loving the life I wish I knew 
Down to the wire 
Everyone's plugged in 
The situation's dire 
Nobody can win 

So who am I to make believe 
It's all part of the show 
Don't you know everyone is a modern day maestro 
Go, strike a pose 
You're dying to know 
Who's looking at you 

I sit idly by 
Breathing in the smoke 
They're blowing through filters 
Have another toke 
Down on my luck 
It's never enough 
I'm hoping any moment they'll call my bluff 
So who am I to make believe 

You want to be better than every sad soul you see 
Like your insecurities look better on me

Drowning (Tell Me a Lie)

Your hands, my breath, things I can't hold 
For if I do, I'll lose control 
My heart, a victim of regret 
Won't do what's right, it beats on the left 
It's every whisper down my spine, every line it traces back to you, to you, 
Ooh 

Tell me a lie, tell me everything 
that I want to hear 
Say you'll stay by me 
Tell me a lie, tell me anything 
I shouldn't be here 
But something inside of me 
Goes "hold my hand, I'm drowning" 

With each mistake, we break the wall 
We give to take, we live to fall 
and I'm just a pawn 
I'm played like a bet 
although I don't quite know this yet 
It's every whisper down my spine, every line it traces back to you, to you, 
Ooh 

Tell me a lie, tell me everything 
that I want to hear 
Say you'll stay by me 
Tell me a lie, tell me anything 
I shouldn't be here 
But something inside of me 
Goes "hold my hand, I'm drowning" 

Sweet Spot

 We were hanging by a thread 
Like a paper moon 
Nothing moves me no more 
Like you used to do 
I'm heading south, for we look to the past with candy in our mouths 
with candy in our mouths 

Ooooh 
In the shade and on the rocks 
I came across a moment of peace 
A sweet spot 
I took it in and out again 
Passing ephemeral awakening 
Hey, why not? 

So come what will 
We're floating halcyon still 
Looking up, cause love won't leave you down 

Ooh 

A galaxy of fireflies 
Guides me past the marbled riverside 
In the moonlight 
Reflecting on the water black 
Turning all my faults and all I lack 
Into nothing 

So come what will 
We're floating halcyon still 
Looking up, cause love won't leave you down 

And the sweetness melts away just when I start to feel okay 
I know the drill off by heart but it's still tearing me apart 
I want to, I want to, I want to feel whole 

Oooh 
In the shade and on the rocks 
I came across a moment of peace 
A sweet spot 
So come what will 
We're floating halcyon still, looking up cause love won't leave you down.

 

The Salt

Oooh my hands are shaking 
Now that my eyes are finally drying out, drying out 

Oooh, my knees are shaking 
Now that we're standing on solid ground, on solid ground 

Cause when you lay your head on me 
Honestly I often feel at fault 
I'm inclined to blink, but I'm learning how to see through the salt 

Oooh my voice is breaking out 
Is my message broadcast clear as day? as clear as day 

Cause when you lay your head on me 
Honestly I often feel at fault 
I'm inclined to blink, but I'm learning how to see through the salt 

Oh yesterday was harder than I ever thought it'd be 
Oh so it goes, we may lose a day to gain eternity 

Cause when you lay your head on me 
Honestly I often feel at fault 
I'm inclined to blink, but I'm learning how to see through the salt 
Oh I feel at fault 
But I'm learning how to see 
I'm learning how to see through the salt

Something Blue

 something old, these precious stones 
something new, this dress in ivory tone 
I'll wear for you 
something borrowed, more money 
something blue, these cold feet 
they walk to you 

As we go along 
as sure as the dawn 
We'll wonder if we are wrong 
but something, ooh something keeps this going strong 

something old, like your soul 
something new, this exciting role 
I fell into 
something borrowed, this life I lead 
something blue, these cold feet 
they walk with you 

As we go along 
as sure as the dawn 
We'll wonder if we are wrong 
but something, ooh something keeps this going strong 

It keeps us going strong 
ooh 
it keeps us going strong 
hoo hoo 
it keeps us going strong 
ahhh 
it keeps us holding on 

As we go along 
as sure as the dawn 
We'll wonder if we are wrong 
but something, ooh something keeps this going strong

Rose Coloured Hue 

everything I was 
everything I was living 
I saw through a rose coloured hue 

from truth I looked away 
the needle ran deeper and skewered my stay 
rush of blood warm to the touch 
I'm afraid of feeling too much 
I'm so far from being okay 
only destruction remains 

so in love, so I paint the world red 
so in love, so I stain the water red 

everything I had 
everything I was given 
it kept me from reality 
there was never a you and me 

I'm so far from being okay 
Only destruction remains 

so in love 
so I paint the world 
red 
so in love 
so I stain the water red 

is the worst still ahead? 
is the worst still ahead? 
is the worst still ahead? 
is the worst still ahead? 
is the worst still ahead? 
is the worst still ahead?

Clotho

once I saw my fate, Thread & Tape, Thread & Tape 
Clotho beauty bronze you knew all along 
I don't belong 
but you're so inviting 
pulling me with invisible thread 
draping the shroud that falls on everyone's head 

once I used your shears, to cut off the years, to cut off the years 
Clotho beauty bronze, just cut me loose 
For I don't belong 
you're so inviting 
pulling me with invisible thread 
stitching me into the fabric of all that is dead 

so loose at the seams, you pulled me apart, you pulled me apart 
Clotho come fix me 
stitch up my heart, stitch up my heart 

you're so inviting 
pulling me with invisible thread 
draping the shroud that falls on everyone's head

The Only Way Out Is Through

tiny gaps, always on edge 
little storms brewing in your head 
tiny cracks surely will spread 
bigger than, stronger than I've been 

wires fray until they wear thin 
throw your thoughts into a tailspin 
electrical waves in the brain 
bigger than, stronger than I've been 

Oh the only way out is through and through again 

so how are you now? 
is it enough to 
take one another? 
to give what you want to your self? 
believe me when I say you're something else 
you're something else 

everything lives in between 
chemical symbols mean nothing 
can't declare a clear victory 
when it's your self that you're fighting 

the only way out is through and through again 
so how are you now? 
is it enough to 
take one another? 
to give what you want to your self? 
believe me when I say you're something else 
you're something else
