Giant Killer 03:18
Giant Killer there was trauma, there were overwhelming signs of a struggle there was torture and this human dignity, it was nowhere to be seen oh the only thing we do, is just quietly obey, hoping it will grant us some delay then we bite into the boils, just to keep this beast at bay, hoping to prolong our sorry stay our leprosy won’t keep us out of harm’s way this is all your making, this is all your fault is this what you came here for? there was carnage out for everyone to see, it was systematic oh there is no chance in hell at a perfect getaway, this is the stage of disarray as the claw opens your vein and your faith begins to sway, you’ll accept this price we have to pay

The hideous fires I’m getting better and better at discarding these memories of mine we can make it official: it’s summertime we make love in slow-motion and everything is perfectly aligned it’s the reincarnation of summertime once again you’ve uncovered a painful truth of humankind we’re gonna be sorry it’s summertime I bet you never thought that your whole heart would go in loop you never thought you would grow tired I bet you thought that there was plenty more where this came from you never thought it would expire there’s always a hand of ice that will be laid upon your heart it’s amusing to me to stand here and see everything unwind there’s no one to notice it’s summertime I had outlive these problems long before you came I think I’ll manage to continue I’ve yet to see someone untouched by circumstance ‘cause no one knows what he gets into We will all depart and we’ll leave these worries of the heart
3.
A certain way my adulations may have changed but down the line, my heart remains the same I’ve built this chamber just for you, it’s where we’ll live, the day we’ve seen this through we all want to be a certain way somewhat better living in a lie is so much better you’ve moved out for a year or so, or maybe ten, it’s just too soon to know sink into a dreamless sleep of lethargy, where nothing is for keeps since we’ve reduced our lives to this, it brought me nothing of the sort since we’ve reduced our lives to this (accord)
4.
Water down the well is there anything we can still talk about? is there anything I can say to you? and you won’t understand where I’m coming from you won’t understand what I say and you won’t understand me it’s all water down the well, trying to explain water down the well this is what I say is there any point at all in being more than superficial? is there something that your common sense will not derive? and you won’t understand where I’m coming from you won’t understand anything I have to say you won’t understand where my heart belongs you won’t understand, you won’t understand

Kill Me Now 03:44
Kill me now if everyday from here on end is just like this if every feeling that I have, feels amiss if I have to force myself to stand up right if I have to wait for the morning light to find my face, then… please, kill me now if all the stings I get from love will be this cold if all the wonders trapped inside, never unfold if I give it all, only to get pushed back by the wind if I open up completely but still no one wants to let me in, then…
6.
Needs/Wants 04:17
Needs vs wants I won’t tell you, tell you anything at all I will show you how I feel I really don’t expect that much ‘cause I don’t know what I really need I fail to put it into words, ‘cause I fear that I might say things that cause these deeper love to bleed. I won’t tell you, tell you anything at all, I’m gonna show you how I feel and what you feel is what you really want, your pain is anything but real anything you do is gone before it happens and you know, you’ll see your legacy revealed ‘cause you won’t do what you have to and you won’t see what you need to everything is lost along the way, there is truly nothing
7.
Off The Hook 03:23
Off the hook take me off the hook for a while, I’ve been coughing blood for a long, long time there is nothing up here for me, only more of the same and less in my name all that I am, is this all I can be? then I’m sick to death of me how did we get to this point where nothing ever is what it seems and where people are pointless why did we leave each other in the dark where everything seems to be lost and where people are pointless take no calls and say it to the wind, hang yourself out to dry
8.
Bitterness 04:58
Bitterness day in, day out we’re disallowed to feel, we’re not allowed to feel day in, day out we’re not allowed to love the ones we love you could pull the roots of my bitterness, you could put my spirit on display you might be the only thing that means a thing you could pull the roots of my bitterness, you can drag my soul out you might be the only thing that means a thing (stay close to each other, stay close to the simple things) this is the last day, we’re falling into place, falling off the face opening my violet scars is like looking at refracting stars I see things still to occur opening my violet scars is like looking at refracting stars I see things that never were

Indigo 04:06
Indigo the shadow trees will shine a darkness on the water the stream will cut a new path clear for your descent the color of the mountain changes every hour and you will forfeit all your options in the end points, are deducted apply yourself see things twisted into order points are deducted every time you raise your hand this is the spectrum indigo this is the light in which we... you will forfeit all your options in the end your conceptions are erased before the end this is the spectrum indigo this is the light in which we scatter this is the spectrum indigo it lights the things that shouldn't matter
