Track Name: Geographers
Eyes that watch us from the dark at night
The hands that find their way to evening, the fog that blinds our sight

Pride, the kind that burrows in your hide
The kind that lays its eggs inside you, then eats you from inside

A panicked movement, so calm and fluid, the fear of letting go

Blow out to nothing, relieve me of this soul
Blow out, unloving, and tired of digging holes

Love that manifests itself as lust
The desperate plea for flesh and comfort, for safety from above

A panicked movement, so calm and fluid, the fear of letting go

Blow out to nothing, relieve me of this soul
Blow out, unloving, and tired of digging holes

And though we’re losing light, draw maps by candlelight
Geographers into this world unknown
Hold my hand in tight, feel my breath subside
Geographers from Babylon to Rome

Don’t ask for something you know you can’t control
Don’t ask the questions you wouldn’t want to know

Blow out to nothing, relieve me of this soul
Blow out, unloving, and tired of digging holes
We were all alone
Track Name: The Moon and the Tide
Every mix a solution, but I could never make it easy on you
Combination of fluids, engine running out of habit of use
Climb the walls to the ceiling, starve this hunger until it swallows the room
And I’m here in the corner

Seeds are planted once, eat and grow and wind their way through it
In time they fall apart, leaving spaces, hollow and rooted

Through these days and nights
The moon and the tide
Through these days and nights
The moon and the tide
Stare into the storm, and I see through it
Swore I’d give you more, The moon and the tide

Every day you go walking, every day I find it harder to move
Feel the temperature dropping, ice is forming at edge of the roof
Sink your teeth in with feeling, skin of paper covers layers of bruise
And I’m here in the corner

Seeds are planted once, eat and grow and wind their way through it
In time they fall apart, leaving spaces, hollow and rooted

Through these days and nights
The moon and the tide
Through these days and nights
The moon and the tide
Stare into the storm, and I see through it
Swore I’d give you more, but I can’t do it
I can’t do it, no I can’t do it
The moon and the tide
The moon and the tide
Track Name: Titan
Staring at the ceiling crown, discovering tomorrow’s come
And even though the sky is gone, it was not enough
I can feel it all around, whispers fill the streets with sound
These legs as silent as these arms that have held me down

Who would want this for their life?
And I’ve lost the will to fight
So I ask you, are you doing alright?
When a Titan’s lost his might
Will they ostracize or smite?
So I ask you, are we doing alright?
You the one been feeding me stones?
You the one been feeding me stones

I would never be the one, because wisdom gives a certain calm
But a decade that has come and gone, and what do I know?
On Crete when we were both so young, still hidden from the fire to come
A pay phone couldn’t find you home, and I should have known

And you, you haunt me now
And you
And you, I woke you now
And so I have to go

Who would want this for their life?
And I’ve lost the will to fight
So I ask you, are you doing alright?
When a Titan’s lost his might
Will they ostracize or smite?
So I ask you, are we doing alright?
You the one been feeding me stones?
You the one been feeding me stones
Track Name: Monogyny
When you asked if I would stay, and I replied “I’m gone”
And all our lies came out to play and tore apart this home

Oh, ordinary
Oh, we push and pull but we know we’ve grown undone

When the queen will lay her eggs the workers stand as one
Once the heir has come to stay they tear her into crumbs

Oh, were you falling?
Oh, I’d pick you up but I know you stole my tongue

Oh, with a warning
Oh, save your breath ‘cause you know I broke your lungs
