Track Name: Pressure
I can feel the pressure wearing down our backs
we're all getting older stalling in our tracks
You don't know the answer read it in the book
I don't feel much better after all that took

What am I supposed to believe in
Who am I to break the words they're teaching with
There's a lie it's lost in the east
What's waiting for me
Don't tell me that I'll be fine

Winter's never coming like it used to be
we're all falling backwards stuck in unbelief

What am I supposed to believe in
Who am I to break the words they're teaching with
There's a lie it's lost in the east
What's waiting for me
Don't tell me that I'll be fine

Oh darling here it goes
I'm leaving here alone
Don't tell me not to go
I'm following the road
Track Name: Natural Disaster
It's just a phase they told me
hasn't stopped its holding
sit and wait natural disaster

Sleeping like the suns out
empty pocket strung out
I don't care it's not what I'm after

And I can't wait to start what's in my heart
What's in my heart today
Yea I can't wait to start
what's in my heart
what's in my heart
What's in my

Waking every morning
it comes right back to me
I'm just searching for a warning
give it all that I have
give it all that I have to

Waking every morning
it comes right back to me
I'm just searching for a warning
give it all that I have
give it all that I have to give

Older days were honest
miss the thump in my chest
I don't feel don't feel like I used to

I can see that old warmth
mixing in the new storms
I don't care it's not what I'm after

And I can't wait to start what's in my heart
What's in my heart today
Yea I can't wait to start
what's in my heart
what's in my heart
What's in my

Waking every morning
it comes right back to me
I'm just searching for a warning
give it all that I have
give it all that I have to

Waking every morning
it comes right back to me
I'm just searching for a warning
give it all that I have
give it all that I have to give (x2)
Track Name: Waking Up
Summertime is what I've waited for
and days go by but I don't feel much different than before

Waking up to go back home
turn the clock and I'll never know
make the tea to soothe my throat

When does my whole life begin
What is god and where has it been
Does it care about my sins

Cause I've been wasting all this time
hold me close and tell me it's alright
Yea I've been wasting all this time
hold me close and tell me it's alright
Yea it's alright

Colors fade down to subtle grey
and I can't tell day from night and night from day

Waking up to go back home
turn the clock and I'll never know
make the tea to soothe my throat

When does my whole life begin
What is god and where has it been
Does it care about my sins

Cause I've been wasting all this time
hold me close and tell me it's alright
Yea I've been wasting all this time
hold me close and tell me it's alright
yea it's alright

No don't you tell me I was wrong
I never knew what's backing down the road
I'm living on
I said don't you wonder If I was wrong
Track Name: Turn Us Over
Drop it in the ground and watch it
growing in and out of my head
Blocking out the sun you're drowning
everything you have around it

Can you help me darling
I have so many questions that need an answer
I'm falling deeper so dive down in the ground
help me help me take my time
Leave it leave it off to the side
Can we make it one more night
cause I can feel it passing by

Take another step behind it
I can see the earth inside it

Can you help me darling
I have so many questions that need an answer
I'm falling deeper so dive down in the ground
Help me help me take my time
Leave it leave it off to the side
Can we make it one more night
cause I can feel it passing by
I can feel it passing by

Help me Help me take my time
Leave it Leave it off to the side
Can we make it one more night cause I can
feel it passing by
Track Name: Window Pain (feat. Isobel Ward)
my face
pressed against the window
fogs the glass with my nose
breathing heavy heavy

i watch you
make your way so freely
up my father's driveway
with my heart in tow

oh oh oh
oh oh oh

my mind
struggles to remember
a moment I should regret
more than letting go

my feet
planted to the carpet
paralyzed by regret
of ever letting go

my lungs
struggle to expand now
why can't I get a word out
I need to let you know

oh oh oh
oh oh oh

I'm running faster faster
I'm running into your arms
I'm running faster, faster
I'm running after your heart
Track Name: Flat Circles
Tell me bout the scars again
taking over when I stand
I don't know where to go

Leaving home is where I've been
pull the boots up prune my skin
I don't know where to go.

Tell me what have I been coming home to
It's all lost in my head on and on and on
You don't have to pretend that you want to
take back all that you said
cause it goes on and on and on

Tell me bout the man I was
when my heart was still on the run
I don't know where to go.

Growing up and growing down
screaming out I can't make a sound
I don't know where to go

Tell me what have I been coming home to
It's all lost in my head on and on and on
You don't have to pretend that you want to
take back all that you said
cause it goes on and on and on
Track Name: Ghost
There's things that I don't know
just breaking down in front of me
What happens down the road
is sneaking up so quietly

Build it up and tear it down again
I have seen beginning and an end
We will feel things I can't explain
but we love through the vast array

This will break me to the fold
and the pounding in my head won't ever go
I can't deny this feeling when we are alone
You're becoming part of me
so come back home

I've been afraid to run
when everything is caving in
Can't be the only one
just holding on and saving it

We have built a mountain out of cards
hear the quakes they're coming from the dark
There's a fire rushing through the woods
we will burn like no one thought we could

This will break me to the fold
and the pounding in my head won't ever go
I can't deny this feeling when we are alone
You're becoming part of me
so come back home

So come back home
Track Name: Atlas
silent tears
guilty eyes
we go back and forth again

open up
no one wins
when we fail to feel beloved

----

did you know
we're ok
it's a secret I like to keep

it's me alone
you alone
that makes us feel this way

i'm just an earth on its axis
organized madness
oh my god
how did we end up here
and you say
you say it's just a little too much to bear

----

hold on, hold on
darlin'

----
Track Name: Emotions
There's a girl in my bed
that means something to someone
but she means nothing to me

And it's all in my head
that I can't get enough of
all the emptiness this brings

But don't you let me go
I'm out here on my own
Please don't feed me those emotions

She was talking to me
but it's not quite the same as
how we talked when you were home

And it's so hard to see
how we ended up here
how I ended up alone

But don't you let me go
I'm out here on my own
Please don't feed me those emotions

I'm leaving I'm leaving
it's almost time
I'm leaving I'm leaving
it's all untied

I'm fine on the surface
but I lost it all inside

There's a girl in my bed
that means something to someone
but she means nothing to me

And it's all in my head
that I can't get enough of
all the emptiness this brings

But don't you let me go
I'm out here on my own
Please don't feed me those emotions
