Track Name: So Is The World
Wasting daylight so I can have you all alone
I know there's something more than air between us
I want it all I want it all
so I guess there's no stopping me yet

Pacing the night life so I can feel sparks again
I wish that you would disappear
so that I could think clear
I want it all I want it all
right in the palm of my hands

The world is spinning and so is my head
is spinning and so is the world
Track Name: The Wasp
I was a wasp and you were a mouse
we would never talk it out
because I'm under you
So I got up and I got out
I can't do this by myself
while I'm under you

I am hearing all the things you told me
back when you were messed up
head against the wall
legs facing out
you were hiding
I keep hoping for the longshots
staring past the sour talks
dreams as high as space rocks
it's much clearer now
we were toxic youth

I was the soil and you were the seed
when the black bird pried you free
and left me under you
We're much too young to
get caught up under the same sun
and the same moon that was ours
has receded and started again
it's time for this cycle to come to an end
and I'm not

Hearing all the things you told me
back when you were messed up
head against the wall legs facing out
you were hiding
I keep hoping for the longshots
staring past the sour talks
dreams as high as space rocks
it's much clearer now
we were toxic youth
Track Name: Star Trails
We pushed our way through all our differences
my weight couldn't difference it
now we're unbalanced
I can't be tamed I can't be settled
I've got this sickness I want some more
for my own self

I can't be tamed
I can't be slept
so long as I am pure
so long as I am grey

Star trails
It's time to fall into the light
the sweetness came too soon
now it's bitter to the taste
I don't want to try
to save this fleeting sun
I let you in too long
now you're the only burning one

You put your filter on
you're ready to face away
from what's spectered you
just one more release
let go
you can't be settled
you've got this sickness
you need some more

Star trails
it's time to fall into the light
the sweetness came too soon
now it's bitter to the taste
I don't want to try
to save this fleeting sun
I let you in too long
now you're the only burning one
Track Name: Turning
If we went to war today
I'm running out of old shots
Didn't have the words to say
You told me but then I forgot

Turning all the days that we spent
If I fight this feeling
will I reduce to dreaming
Turning this pattern that's repeating
if i fight this dreaming
will I reduce this feeling

We did it all in the spirit of fun
and now the spirits are all gone
my mind escapes me when
I have nowhere to be
did you hear a calling
or a sigh from you to me
I am deactivated
when you say that
you understand

Turning all the days that we spent
If I fight this feeling
will I reduce to dreaming
Turning this pattern that's repeated
If I fight this dreaming
will I reduce this feeling
