Track Name: Mind Mines
Would you believe me, if I said/
I saw a butterfly, with its wings shed/
Like me too, still somehow got away//

Don't like the, pressure of today/
There's nothing, I could do or say/
To please you all now, to appease your ways//

And I take it, so personally/
I don't know how to change//

Sometimes when I wake up, I'm really waking dead/
I shake the dew drop webs, from inside my head/
Thick fog lurks as I, as I look ahead//

Don't think that this will, will ever change/
This living is, designed to be a maze/
Only you can choose, to be amazed//

And I take it, so passionately/
I don't know how to change//
Track Name: Fix These Seams
Looking inside,
made up of all the corners we're, wanting to hide/
We've never seen, where we've been/
I can't remember any of my dreams from when, I was 17//

Maybe if I could, I'd know how to fix these times
Maybe if I could, I'd know how to be behind
Maybe if I could, I'd know how to fix these seams,
How to live in my dreams,
how to live in my dreams//

It's in every child, it's born when we open our eyes/
Stand with our spine unafraid to say, goodbye/
Prove, to who?
A second chance, to throw behind and long to reach into the trance//

Maybe if I could, I'd know how to fix these times
Maybe if I could, I'd know how to be behind
Maybe if I could, I'd know how to fix these seams,
How to live in my dreams,
How to, live in my dreams
How to, live in my dreams,
Live in my dreams.
Track Name: Ringer Tails
Take a, face
To find, space
To find, a safe head to dream in

Find it's all,
Inside you fall,
It's the way to find yourself, crawling down
Down//

Find it's, today
That you, will say
What you're, fearing to be heard

It's not a thing
To fear, or sing
Just say it, because it's time to
Celebrate, everything
Everything you hate //

It's a safe, glean for all
It's a safe, thing to call
But what are you, calling to?
What are you,
Calling to //

Sailor, harpy
Don't leave it, it's time to leave your
Lock on the shore, she's calling for more
She won't stop 'til you take it-
There

Deep in the shore,
She's calling for more
Voice echoes more,
More -
Take me a day
Take it for a day
Don't stop until you take it-
There //
Track Name: Not My Mirror
What do you believe, you deserve, of me?
What about the ghost inside that wants, to be seen?
There was a time that it was the essence, of me
I can't let this time, let it die
I must let it be //

Take it all, I don't think so
That isn't what we are all here for
The mirror that you hold so self righteously
Doesn't prove at all what is within me //

I can see for myself there are shadows you have shelved,
For the day when you can sell them all, and bask in the wealth/
But have you thought there could be a moment you've already cast away?
Now you don't know what to do with all you have in this day

Take it all, I don't think so
That isn't what we are all here for
The mirror that you hold so self righteously
Doesn't prove at all what is within me //
