Track Name: You Don't Know Me
Lyrics:
I can feel my lungs begin to break
Shiver clad in icy eyed disdain
And I feel the ground beneath my feet
Slip beyond my worldly reach
My body, it wants no part of me
Steady as it goes

Said love to desire in you: "You don't Know me."
And good to the world we drew: "You won't hold me."
Better is the mind when the darkened eyes say,
"You don't know me anymore."

I can feel my lovely start to shake
Nothing heals the fear to fill the ache
And I feel the ground beneath my feet
Thin above the luring deep
My love, it wants no part of me
Steady as it goes

Said love to desire in you: "You don't Know me."
And good to the world we drew: "You won't hold me."
Better is the mind when the darkened eyes say,
"You don't know me."

I feel foolish as I began long ago.
Track Name: Our Bodies
We make our bodies so cold.
Brush a little lust across the folds.
Bone like a shadow told,
Heavy as world on a weathered soul.
Are we so much more together than alone? No

I was afraid of love but, baby, you hold all that i've ever known.
Never let go

We make our bodies so thin.
Save what little soul does lie within.
Bone like a shadow sin.
Heavy as a world on a weathered skin.
Are we still so free of eye as we begin?

Time may stretch for we who feign divine
but oh the holy's fleeting as child of our minds.
Hushed away with the setting sun
like breath that ever waits to fill the lungs.

We break our bodies open
Track Name: I Was Born
I was born beneath myself
My soul it hung above the bed and called to me
"Brother meet me here. The air is safe to breathe."

I was born, in dark, beneath my soul
calling out, "brother make me whole cause I can't live with things that I have done."
How do I break this body?
Push the soul away

Fear the love that weeps from empty eyes.
Free the one we hide.
If I die before the sun does rise, keep your heart mine

All my thoughts sleep soft beneath my tongue cause I can't speak this mind as it has come.
I can't live with things that I have done.
How do I break this body?
Push the soul away

Fear the love that weeps from empty eyes.
Free the one we hide.
If I die before the sun does rise, keep your heart mine
Track Name: To Revelry
Silence is happier to me than sound as it has come in us to be.
So I was wrong to disagree, but you have held the truth so seen in me.

Baby tether your pain or, better, ease your mind cause you could be the one I knew then.
You could be the one I know

Silence is happier to me than sorrow in the sound of what we see.
So I was wrong in disbelief cause you have hemmed the heart so had in me.

Baby tether your pain or, better, ease your mind cause you could be the one I knew then.
You could be the one I know

Hold for good love.
You could be the one I knew then.
You could be the one I know.
Track Name: Belly
I found my feet in the belly of a black hole beast.
Faded stars between his teeth.
Fever hot as rage, he took my blood for the white blank page and said, "Keep your body for today."

As real as I can be without really being me, is that enough for you darling?
Cause I'm not asking you to drown, it breaks my heart when the though goes round, just to fall in and see if the water drags you down.

Faith don't shoulder love but I can't hold your tongue.
Eyes arose, redder than a rose. Heavily you told me I could be your only one.

Love of my own is still as a falling stone so I'll take what I can get.
Fear it won't last is better than a world of the time that we never had and I undo my heavy

As real as I can be without really being me, is that enough for you darling?
Cause I'm not asking you to drown, it breaks my heart when the though goes round, just to fall in and see if the water drags you down.

Faith don't shoulder love but I can't hold your tongue.
Eyes arose, redder than a rose. Heavily you told me I could be your only one.
