Floodgates 02:40
she's never home and often she grieves 'cause she's all alone and people who leave her will never be quite the same again he craves a cure where two can escape but a mouthful of emptiness dries up the date he's got all the time, all the time he needs... still every day he stands the test running from failure but stopping for breaths still he can hope to see her again the shell that comprises the ghost of a friend she thinks she's changed, but that's not the point the core will remain and then filters adjoin this is a life he's trading away her voice was an echo than ended today when i go then bury this with you the floodgate's open with something new i could paint a perfect picture of a view i never saw i've got everything i need new heights and distant memories that i've been trying to suppress i'll get them out of my system when i go then bury this with you the floodgate's open with something new i could paint a perfect picture of a view i never saw

Blurry Eyes 02:39
sunday night’s a little strange, but I can't think of what i'd change through my newest canvas, splat my mental trash ‘til it makes sense soon, you'll be off somewhere far, but I can't visit where you are i'd hate to disappoint you, but i don’t want your bad vibrations comatose sweet memories, picture perfect I can see a little piece of paradise, mellowed out and blurry eyes wednesday night’s a little cool, you’re the genious i’m the fool insulated by your suffocating grip, and it’s alright 'cause they’re outside this haunted room and soon they'll bring me back to you silhouette gets dimmer but i don’t want your bad vibrations, i don’t want your bad vibrations comatose sweet memories, picture perfect I can see a little piece of paradise, mellowed out and blurry eyes

Riddled 03:29
he used to teach a class concerning chemistry now he wears many hats, and blends in credibly you know he'll get away with everything he does he's everchanging, not the person that he once was unfulfilled, but overskilled and with a quiet voice to die in shame or make a name, and so he made a choice he's risking his reward for something lyrical now that he's diagnosed and working on a miracle no, he doesn't care at all witnesses are few, a new distorted scene he looks up to the skies, mocking someone he could be assumes the character, goes to another place where he's collecting all the memories he can't erase he wants to feel but everything he touches ages fast and he confuses distant futures with the recent past he's been through many roles, costumes and identities but each of them removes him further from reality no, he doesn't care at all

20 years later I feel the same poloroid sits in its wooden frame disposable camera and video tapes connect the dots of a life I'd live again but can't remember if I knew it then well I sure hope so take a glimpse but lose the moment and now all we have are 2d versions of a view we missed we couldn't capture how the goosebumps felt the feeling fades and then it's gone woke up to the most beautiful sunrise and saw a smile on the face of the earth, looked up at the great green mountain that stood before me, saw the birds, the flowers and even the rain that the high definition lense couldn't find. i scaled the steep cliffs and plateaus and reached the chilly summit and felt like i was looking at a lifesize map of the country. i tried to bottle the feeling and immortalize the moment with an image that would last a lifetime. i took a picture, it was great, but it couldn't capture the view. it was great, but it couldn't capture the view.. a view i never saw before... take a glimpse but lose the moment and now all we have are 2d versions of a view we missed we couldn't capture how the goosebumps felt the feeling fades and then it's gone

Termina 03:49
burn me, only 'cause you care interrupt the melody and tell me with a stare broken but complete displaced, every different way talking with you backwards and drifting into space i don't have a choice light yet somber, i'm no longer under your sweet spell seeing clearly, or dreaming dearly, it's so hard to tell up, down, taken all around my senses overload as my body hits the ground everything goes numb flashback, moment of the act trapped away for ages and waiting to come back surely i'm not done light yet somber, i'm no longer under your sweet spell seeing clearly, or dreaming dearly, it's so hard to tell
