Track Name: Slow Motion
Why can't I watch you?
Growing in slow motion
I can feel you starting
I can feel you slowing
Going down the road
In this out of control locomotive
That is not stopping
For no one

You bottle me
in your pocket and explode
Give me something
And I don't know what it's for
And right when it starts to feel like home
It's time to go

You'll be looking
At a depression in the sand
At the silhouette
Of an unfolded hand
If there's nothing
At the finish of our plan
We can just start over
Right back where we began

If it doesn't
Happen too fast
It's gonna happen real slow
It will just slip out your fingers
And you won't even notice
Which way it went
Which way it goes

Why can't I watch you?
Growing in slow motion
I can feel you starting
I can feel you slowing
Going down the road
In this out of control locomotive
That is not stopping
For no one

You bottle me
In your pocket and explode
Give me something and
I don't know what it's for
And right when it starts
To feel like home
It's gonna slip out your fingers and
You don't even notice
Which way it went
Which way it goes
Track Name: Faded Heart
Hide away
Faded heart
Everything you come to know
Falls apart

I thought I saw you standing
On that little cloud
How did you get so loud?

There you were
Falling through
My hands like sand
There's nothing I
Can really do

I thought I saw you standing
On that little cloud
How did you get so loud?
I thought I saw you standing
On that little cloud
How did you even know how?
I thought I saw you standing there
But you were gone long gone
No you were gone way gone
Track Name: Spotted Gold
All I wanted from you
Spotted gold
Turned black and blue
It gave me something
To hold onto
You've been reckless for so long
You've been reckless on a marathon
But if you wanted to walk away
You can do that

It all goes in a gust
I don't want to make a fuss
I don't make you wear a leash
I won't bring you things you don't need
And if you gotta go
I understand if you feel the breeze

But if you wanted to walk away
You can do that

I can feel a lift
I can sense a shift
I can feel the grip release
I know you're here with me

But if you wanted to walk away
You can do that
Track Name: Time to Go
Inhale in through the backbone
He'll be the one that keeps us in line
I've got a megaphone
Retracting from his throat
It ain't something you know
Your action growing cold
Ain't it hard to break
The ones you know
Ain't it hard to know
When it's time to go
It's time to go

Inhale in through the backbone
He'll be the one that keeps us in line
I've got a stethoscope
Refracting from his throat
It ain't something you know
Your action growing cold
Ain't it hard to break
The ones you know
Ain't it hard to know
When it's time to go
It's time to go

Form it in the last year
It's coming out his glass ear
Bottles are upside down
He's blasting the bastard
It moves faster and faster
Can I afford this
Can I avoid this
When it moves
So slow
It's time to go
Track Name: Messes
I know you
Got lost in
Your own mess

Wrong for all the right reasons
I didn't mind
Track Name: Becoming Shadows
Becoming shadows
There's no forgetting twice
They say
A fragmented phrase
The words I used to abhor

Bored out of something
We used to hold together
To feel apart from ourselves

We used to distance to
Keep us together
We used to distance to keep us joined and
We used distance to
Keep us together and
We used distance to keep us joined

I guess it grows and
I guess who knows
Just a distant groan don't
Hold us all apart
In the same spot
At the same time
I can't watch you
Up and again on rewind

Meet me at the same spot you used to
We can do all the things we used to do
Track Name: Speeding Ticket
Visions undercover
As a whisper that just hovers
Into heads waiting to scream
But until then it's just a dream
Have you awakened
Ahead of speed
What's nauseating
Could set you free

What's good for you
Is it relief
Is it time
To feel a real thing

This is the second that we leave
Behind the air we used to breath
Slide away from my feet
Where the air lost its scent
And my eyelashes meet
I've got a speeding ticket to you
Just awaiting in my sleep

What's good for you?
Is it relief
Is it time
To feel a real thing

And I saw you
Using those eyes
As a wicked device
Your mouth was making that sound
But the noise didn't coincide
And I gave you that power to decide
Making me run around
To feel alive
Making me run around
Just to hide
