Track Name: One Road
Get back I know your name,
And Im two scared to say the same,
I don't care what the others say,
There's no chance for me.
Stand back cause I don't know what I need
In fact I don't know what I mean,
I'm getting back to what I used to be,
On track and heading for the sea.

There's only one road out of this town,
There's only two lanes and they taunt you
On your way out.

I need to get away from the oceans,
From the open spaces,
It's not fair for you to act this way
When I look over my shoulder

Leave me here in peace,
And don't be scared in the least,
And don't feed those terrible beasts,
That you've seen feasting in your dreams.

There's only one road out of this town,
There's only two lanes and they taunt you
On your way out.

We don't want to talk about it.

I'm not what I should be,
I'm not what I could be,
I'm not right but you can't see,
By this light you can't read me.

We don't want to talk about it.

There's only one road out of this town,
There's only two lanes and they taunt you
On your way out.
Track Name: Paper Bombs
There's desperation in the way you speak to me,
No motivation to get us to where we should be,
We're traveling forward but we're not checking the signs,
There's desperation in the way we treat our kind.

I'm hesitating cause I'm scared of what you'll say
I lost the youthful courageous wonder way,
And I stayed within the lines too scared to turn the page,
Looking at the glass and waiting for it to break.

Shadows falling over,
Shattered window empty frame,
You try to follow,
but the barrier always remains.

There's nothing left that they can use to prove us wrong,
They tried their best but no we evade and now we're gone,
We slipped away with petty change and paper bombs,
We set them off.

Shadows falling over,
Shattered window empty frame,
You try to follow,
but the barrier always remains.
Track Name: Coming To
It's no kind hearted pasture,
I barely escaped capture,
and I'm far too lost to answer,
at all.

Hey you I confess to being wreckless and now im found,
Please can you forgive me I don't want a history bringing me down,
I know I got trouble I blame my brother who he hangs around,
We all need a turning point it never hurts to join and settle down.

Hey you put your hands up you're under arrest,
You're charged with disturbing my gentle rest,
I was pondering on the end of days,
I was wandering through endless empty space.

It's no kind hearted pasture,
I barely escaped capture,
and I'm far too lost to answer,
at all.

The rivers going break,
The waters coming through,
The air is going to fill,
With smoke and shit perfume,
Our time is going to end,
No matter what we do,
I know what to say
what this is coming to.
yes I know what to say
what this is coming to.
yes I know what to say
what this is coming to.

Oh you got danger in your eyes,
I saw the diamonds that you carried
from your mothers drawer,
and the socks that she wore,
and I will never be the one to tell you
I adore you,
adore you,
I adore you,
I do.

The rivers going break,
The waters coming through,
The air is going to fill,
With smoke and shit perfume,
Our time is going to end,
No matter what we do,
I know what to say
what this is coming to.
yes I know what to say
what this is coming to.
yes I know what to say
what this is coming to.
Track Name: ⌘ S
Stay on the wild side,
I don't want to know you at all tonight.
I don't want anything,
the color of your eyes is intoxicating blue.
I think I need to,
tell you,
I want to let you know,
you and I don't need to be nothing more tonight.

I was alone in the most beautiful shade of red,
The sky came, the image faded,
the light was so strong,
the light was so strong,
the night was long.

I don't want to go back tonight,
knowing all about you,
I can't let you go,
I need to be there,
when get old enough to look back and see,
how I'm holding up on the side of you and your denials,
and I'll always make you smile if you want me to.

Looking at all the time that's past,
feels that we were part of some great blast,
firing through light,
taking on all our pride,
yes we're taking on all our pride.
