Track Name: Fade (w. Totalspark)
Where were you when it all came crashing down? Where were they when you left me there to drown? When the winds fall tired as before, I’ll remain: weighed down and wanting more. I was never questioned whether this was wrong or right. Assuming for the better, I stepped into the light and with pains and tribulations, wonderment and strife, each one after the other ripped forever from my life. Where were you when it all came crashing down? Where were they when you left me here to drown? When the oceans and the winds grow tired and sore I’ll lay still: the past more than before. I only wanted purpose, I never needed might. I only dreamed of knowledge, not of this black hole of sight. I only wanted gladness, never needed pain. I only thought myself so full of empathy, not distain. I never wanted these, I never needed you. I never asked for anything, never pleaded, too. I only want to see them. I never needed loss. I only dream of faces past and of the lives you cost. Where were you when it all came crashing down? Where were they when you left me there to drown? When my legs grow weary and my body uncared for, I’ll welcome it completely and sink into the floor. I miss you more, I miss you more.
Track Name: Fairylights (ft. Vylet)
Tiny bells wrapped around my feet, roses laying still in vacant streets. Some of what dreams bring to me are the things that I saw when this became history. I harmonize with angel sighs through lullabies of neon lights and hold my ground until I fall. I see the hope in words you spoke and wind my fears up tight with rope until they’re bound inside my heart. Forget the story, forget the plan, let’s only restart. Forget the mandatory right where we began, will we now depart? I reach my hand, there’s nothing there, fingers tightening around empty air. Dug up graves chasing memories, one more search for unwanted clarity. I sang the songs with you that night when only sound and sight sufficed. You held me down under your skin. I closed the door, your spirit soared to feel yourself be so adored. But the smiles are gone, never again. Forget the story, forget the plan, let’s only restart. Forget the mandatory right where we began, will we now depart? Everything falls apart: what comes with a change of heart. Surround me. Surround me. Forget the story, forget the plan, let’s only restart. Forget the mandatory right where we began, will we now depart? Everything falls apart: what comes with a change of heart.
Track Name: Viridescent (ft. Ink Sparks, w. Intersekt)
I remember gazing up at the light above the see, seeing everything we’ve done come back to me. Yet tinges of the past colour endless strands in rings, visions of an endless life where our love can grow and sing. I’ve seen the brightest light, I’ve seen the greenest leaves, and every night I wish upon the stars beyond the eaves. Who are we to know? Who are we to care? I remember spheres of air coalescing on command. I could see the stars fall at my feet though held them in my hands. Yet through the empty void I clung to the unknown, flashes of a memory from a mind I didn’t own. I’ve seen my people die, I’ve heard my people weep, and every night I cry alone wondering how you can sleep.

But who are we to know? Who are we to care?
Track Name: The Infinite (w. Atlas Grey)
This all began with a spark from your eyes. When this began I was on my own through the wind and snow and ice watching beyond the sidelines for a sign of courage. The world turns steadily and I am caught inside your rays. Everything is infinite when it’s all you know and you keep it all inside. Keep it all inside, carelessly let it go. This all began with three words and you left without even one. When this began you tread carefully but you stomped me down inside. I’m peering through the curtain and I'm seeing everything change, watching beyond the sidelines for a sign of life. The world turns steadily and I am caught inside your rays. Everything is infinite when it’s all you know and you keep it all inside.

Keep it all inside, carelessly let it go.
