Track Name: Sister (Hushed)
Sister I remember
Mother kept happy when she could
Weather in December
Never felt as warm as it should
You were like a feather
Never land where we thought you would
Or anywhere close to it
Who would have thought you never would

So tell me what happens

When the waves break
And you’re surrounded
He tries to kill you
And you allow it

Sister I remember
The morning light on evergreen
What seemed like forever
Was just my mind escaping me
Imitation leather
The smell of blood left on the seat
Was that your way of proving
We look the same from underneath

So tell me what happens

When the waves break
And you’re surrounded
He tries to kill you
And you allow it
And you allow it

Over and over he says
I surround you
I surround you
I never leave my beloved
I’ve found you

I surround you
I surround you, I
I never leave my beloved
I’ve found you
Track Name: Wants What It Wants (Hushed)
So where do I begin this my love
Am I blowing down your door way
If so then I’ll rebuild it this time
And I’ll be on my way

Come if you believe me
Come if you remember the way
If not then I will find you this time
Wishing you had stayed

Because it
It wants what it wants
The heart does
It wants what it wants
The heart, the heart
It wants what it wants
The heart does
It wants what it wants
The heart, the heart

So how do I forget this my love
And when do I belong here
If trouble is a pathway we build
Then I’m a pioneer

Blame it on the illness
Blame it on the winter we’ve had
But suddenly the finger I pointed
Is on the other hand

Pushing the night
Bending the light
I succumb to
I succumb to it
Pushing the night
Bending the light
Track Name: Dark Matter (Hushed)
Just cause your heart’s afraid
Doesn’t give the right to say
I was born this way

You see the part you played
All the silhouettes you’ve made
Fleet the light of Day

I wish I was innocent in a bad way
But I’ve found
You don’t come after soldiers
Unless they were yours in the first place

Oh I swim in a violet sea
But I’m bending the light connecting you to me
So write a ‘lettre de marque’ and see
Oh if this dark matter heart can bleed out right

Why do I push away
When your welcome is overstayed
All I breathe is grey
But through the disarray
You’re the emissary vein
To my left right brain
Oh cause, I wish I was reticent in my own strength
But I’ve found
You don’t hold your composure
When I say that with a straight face

See you brought your wits about you
The black bear that’ll haunt you
If I can feel it, why do I need to see it – do I?
See you brought your wits about you
The black bear that’ll haunt you
I don’t see it, oh did I ever feel it – did I?
See you brought your wits about you
The black bear that’ll haunt you
Track Name: Pieces (Hushed)
You and me
Got ourselves a problem
I can see this
Better than I solve em

I believed
I found a way around it
I will leave
This better than I found it

There’s too much smoke to see it
There’s too much broke to feel this
Well I love you, I love you
And all of your pieces

History’s a letter made of scarlet
Victories look better when you’ve called it
Misery’s the moment when I lost you
It’s pleasure in a costume
It’s more than what it cost you

All of your pieces
Track Name: I Won't Fight It (Hushed)
I’m alone
The son of tears
Thought I was free but I wasted
All these years
The rancor
Won’t fit ya
So now I wait for the phone call
To come get ya

I pull up
You crawl out
Of a window in the basement of
Your parent’s house
A new song
It’s unsung
Now there’s some dust and a rectangle
Where my picture hung

I won’t fight it
I won’t fight it
I won’t
I won’t fight it
I won’t
Woo ooh

A sharp tongue
It’s obvious
Now there’s a room in a hospital
Where your body is
The B-bridge
I walk to it
If there’s a crowd waiting for me there
I’ll break through it, but

I won’t fight it
I won’t fight it
I won’t
I won’t fight it
I won’t
Woo ooh
