Detritivore 05:58
You're a miniscule butterfly, And all your colours aren't your means to fly All together they might make a light But you parade them like the world has never seen the like. But please, dream on Like you've only got yourself to fear, Oh no, you're just the same as everyone. Well you pace has all been nullified

Your Science 03:46
You can't sleep at night With your eyes fixed on the sky Like you're high on your low life Well you stole that low life It belonged to all your friends All of your science upon me All your ideas are on me The whites of your eyes in me Your fingers and things are in me Making me move I'll wait 'til your back's turned Before i steal your soul I'll wait 'til your life's full And then pull the rug out from under you

To see the best of everyday In all the worst of all your ways To be the first of all your friends To lose the last of all your sense But brother you're dancing everyday And brother, a smile is everything So keep the demons at the gate The ones who come to point and stare And see you dancing Well brother, you're smiling still When i explode like a sun I'll leave a hole that's profound When all the fragments connect and shine Like stars from the ground Then brother, i'm dancing always Well it happened to him Could it happen to you? If it happened to me would you say you knew? Would you say that you'd seen it coming? Well it happened to him Could it happen to you If it happened to me would you say you knew? Would you say that you'd seen it coming? It happened to him Could it happen to you? When it happens to me I can say I knew I have always known and it's coming soon.

Hemlock 05:16
We must have broken your world But don't be afraid It's an illusion that comes with your indelible faith And what a waste you have made of your incredible gifts. You take it all too far It was all a game but now you're killing me What have you done to me? It seemed a natural thing to be so wayward and thin But you take it all too far It was all a game but now you're killing me What have you done to me? What have you done to me? What on earth have you done to me? Who would believe in us when you don't believe in us? Who could believe in us when you don't believe in us? You're at the start, so why don't you start believing in us? You don't believe in us.

Between the wealth and the need There's a greed that could scupper my health And again, if i was me Should i want to be somebody else? If only just to see all this sickness in everyone else Only then i could be just one of the books on the shelf. There's a reason i know i have failed you again It's the greyness that grows and the cracks on my skin And the moment you know i will never sleep again And this debt that i owe of myself, to yourself, to you Is this what you want to leave? All of that debt that you owe?

Icarus 04:10
There's a laser that shoots the sky when i'm sleeping And it sets on fire so when i'm flying I burn everytime In carbon i'll stay Tethered to my ways I want to see it, show it to me I want to see it, you owe it to me If I give them what they want Will i get what i need, or In carbon I'll stay Tethered to my ways Don't raise my hopes they all burn in the sky In carbon i'll stay Tethered to my ways Don't come home Icarus You've shamed us You've made us a laughing stock It's the same rules everytime

I'm never getting older The ticking of the clocks is the just the sound of life grinding to a halt And the wars keep getting louder, My home is in the middle dodging every single bomb that gets dropped And i'm standing in the crossfire Waiting for an impact Singing from the top of my hope That i'm never getting older The ticking of the bombs is just the sound of life slowing down Is this the way to let go? Is this the way to let go? Is this the way to give up but still be giving it all? Is this the way to let go? Keep every mountain in your home Is it the way, is it the way to stay ready? To be always ready For whatever brings you back Whatever brings you back for one more life I'm never getting older The cracking of my bones is just the sound of life clicking into place And i hear it getting louder So i'll drown it out with sighs just like everybody else always 'Cause that's the sound of dreams breathing A song we sing inside when we know we've got to give up our place So i'm breathing in and out Is that the sound of a song or just the sound, just the sound of us Is this the way to let go? Is this the way to let go? Is it the way to give up but still be giving it all? Is this the way to let go? Keep every mountain in your home Is it the way, is it the way to stay ready To be always ready For whatever brings you back Whatever brings you back But what if it brings you back?

I wouldn't want to be the kind of man you see before you A freeze frame on a washed out screen You've already paid yours And the worst bits just cost more I'll try to make you see That other men are like me They're freeze frames of self doubt with hopeless schemes They're scheming to waste time But when do we use time? And if the pictures are honest the era's defined by the eyes And these are lost to the wild These are lost to the wild These belong to a smile that's been lost for a while These are lost to the wild These ones have stared for miles They're scheming to waste time And when do we use time? And when i'm finally the kind of man you need A freeze frame of someone before you really knew me You'll already hate me And when did you need me? And if the pictures are honest The era's defined by the eyes And these are lost to the wild These are lost to the wild These belong to a smile that's been lost for a while These are lost to the wild These ones have stared for miles They're scheming to waste time And don't we all abuse time? All this wasting Aimless wasting All this wasting Shameful wasting We all decide to grow old in this way So change
