Track Name: The Still Tempest
Within this instant
The moon is but pathetic slivers on my Earth
The storm was hell
Oh, but the calm was worse

Using you up like the flame uses trees
Never saw my fate lie with your expertise
These pills I take, yeah, they do stop the ache
But I couldn't really say they took the pain away

What you tell me I couldn't ever repeat
And if she can't need me, then, well
I'll watch her leave. I can't save her
I'll set my sights on destroying the world

And when I go just burn away my soul
Don't bother to replace my head with stone
And scatter the rest of me
With you

Brushing from your face
The darkness I found you in
It seems so light
Compared to what I found in you
Writing the night out in black and blue

(Close your eyes)
It's a simple glow
(Right hand down)
Separating us
(Right at the waistline)
Counting down the times
(Watch me drown)
That you have to try
Watch the ocean grab me again

And when I go just burn away my soul
Don't bother to replace my head with stone
And scatter the rest of me
Track Name: Mourning Faces in Lucent Bases
Before you
I remember evenings
With falling cold

Bless me again
Write down your plans for me
That are clawing at my back

Around
Towards
That redeeming quality
We always fought about

Drinking what the
Devil gave you
Will only make you
Burn faster

Holding hope for
A commending outcome
'Cause if she's gone
Then so am I

Latin over
My left eye
Habits were coming and going
Just as the rules were
Set in place

I feel I'm drinking your face
Disapproving silence
At the end of every ounce

Stop teasing me
With hurricanes
My world's on fire
And I'm not there

Drinking what the
Devil gave you
Will only make you
Burn faster

Holding hope for
A commending outcome
'Cause if she's gone
Then so am I

So am I

This was the moment
I knew that
Fun had come to an end

Waiting for the drink to cool
To imbibe and feel the fire
Once again

I've never helped before
Reanimate
Keep everyone calm
Within my reach and out of touch

Wrath of the outpost
Directed towards you
As far as I can see

Drinking what the
Devil gave you
Will only make you
Burn faster

Holding hope for
A commending outcome
'Cause if she's gone
Then so am I
Track Name: ​Vapor of the Enchantress
You make your wishes
On my eyelashes
Head out the window
Backseat at the end of the road

Dedicate me now to the pour
And how she decays
Who's to say what name
She'll be screaming out tonight

I could never let you see me fail
I have slept with the light off
For too many nights

This anxiety is making up for
All the times you made my heart
Miss a beat

You and your not so sober decisions
Could one of those decisions be me
I'm giving you one last chance to
Blow my mind

I don't drink like that
Blow my mind
Just one more time
I don't drink like that

Just blow my mind

The quicker
The better
You know that

This anxiety is making up for
All the times you made my heart
Miss a beat

You and your not so sober decisions
Could one of those decisions be me
I'm giving you one last chance

There's a fear in me
That it's not just here
There's a fluid everywhere
Seldom relenting
All encompassing
I can't stop
What I can't see

You don't love
What you don't set free
You can't trust
What you don't believe

Any longer and she'll stop breathing
Stop now to avoid the shock
Take a drink. Stop freezing
Who knows what'll happen to your heart

Anything seems better than this

You don't love
What you can't set free
Track Name: Distilling The Lullaby
Here we are at the start again
Ironic that it's just all so antiquated
"Blaming yourself won't help her.
Hurting yourself by clawing dirt."

Do you find it harder to believe
When that's the only thing that you need?
You hurt yourself
Trying to figure it out
Just do yourself a favor

Just keep it coming
The empty bottle's comfort
Sometimes it's just nice to know
You're there. I know
It's just a one sided love
Something to hurt myself

Trying to figure it all out

I'm the dust that your breath gave life to
Now you have me on your hands

Just as it occurs to me
I've earned this lifelong sentence to lonely
Earning every bag of silver
Along my estranged direction

You keep me tethered
You keep me close
Despite my weathered body
And empty throat

Though you're not tangible
And I can't feel you
You are my memory
You can't escape no matter what you do
Track Name: Committing to the Dissonance
Sunset in the rear-view
Driving towards the dark
Eastbound during twilight
Losing my mind by selling my heart

Looking for a victim
While I'm searching for me

Sleep schedule schemes
From my lips there isn't a word
That I won't make you believe

Best lie wins
If I could keep a secret then maybe

I'd let the tensions dissolve away
I'd let it all go more and more

We fell in love in a sea
Made up of electricity

Mind the gap!

She points a finger to my chest
And begins to trace what it is I'm missing

"You used to have such heart"

Dance in sheets
High in streets
Look all the way down
And you'll see

Shooting stars
Mistaken for passing cars
If you could keep a secret then maybe

I'd let the tensions dissolve away
I'd let it all go more and more

We fell in love in a sea
Made up of electricity

I'm burying your memory
But why stop there?
Let's throw in your body too
Yeah, the one you know you liked to share
Like you had something to prove

If pain's the only thing
That reminds you that you're alive
I'd hate to convince you
That you've died
Track Name: The Moonshine Oracle
Before, I had
Dreams beyond the stars
And now
It's a nightly dance with poison

Burning down the neighborhood
I've never seen these colors before
You matter as much as Medusa's touch
When your gaze was just enough

And after all those drafts you wrote
And I wish this wasn't so familiar

You promised me wings
Then took away my sky

Sky?
No, there's no sky tonight
Just a distorted decency
So sorry for apologizing

Drowning with the devil
Offering her hand
She tries to drag me deeper, deeper

Burning down the neighborhood
I've never seen these colors before
You matter as much as Medusa's touch
When your gaze was just enough

And I've gone AWOL in a bottle
And I've given up on any hope for second chances

She has got a fire
Starting up inside her heart
And there's gasoline
Filling up her bloodstream

Burning down the neighborhood
I've never seen these colors before
You matter as much as Medusa's touch
When your gaze was just enough

And I drink faster than I should
And it makes me feel more like a god

It's not necessarily a grave​
Track Name: Semi-Circle Sunrise
Green eyes
Keep me locked in
Gold eyes
Keep me fiending

It's your time
To decide
When it's all over

Virulent
To my sober

Can you taste the difference
Within a second
Her hand just moved
But her shadow stayed
Quite still

Strictly masked
Children tacked
To the wall

Neon nests
Leaving prints
In the snow

I want the ability
To be nowhere
We too are of fire and
We want his blood

Keep the dew drops falling
Controlled burning
When I'm done with you
There's no place you can hide

(Keep the dew drops
Keep the dew drops falling
Control your burning while inside
When I'm done with you
There's no place that you can hide)

Dimorphic disorder
Your green eyes stargaze
As I stole the flowers from the grave

There's some truth
In the words you write
And I'll show you proof
That there's no god

A cemetery kiss
From a body I'll miss
But there's no stopping me
You can't stop me now

If I could touch her but once
I know that she would come
Body pulsing
And her leg going numb

This is where
It took a turn
Keep breathing
Keep singing

I reach out
But nothing's listening
There's no god here

Mirror's ink
Darkest shine
It's what you're seeing
Just keep breathing
Just keep breathing​
