Track Name: Now Now
Something’s coming overhead
I know by when the day is dead
When all the color turns to white
You’re no longer quiet

I’m compelled to run toward you now
Throw away my royal crown
Here, I let my doubtful thoughts
Go as I watch you

Now now, now now
Tell me, show me

You stay free remaining faint
Riding as an unnamed saint
You’re the one I’ve longed to know
And off you go

I know I don’t belong here
In pleasure without meeting fear
Take me away tonight
I’m a fool to have slighted you

Now now, now now
Tell me, Show me

I’m wide awake
Where are you hiding away
In a wild place
I’m heading that way

I left my body
Come meet me
Track Name: Easy For Me
Today seems harmless
In its approach
Edging up on us
Brightening the dust

You make it
You make it
Easy for me
To lose my mind
I’m lying too close
Wrapped up in worn hopes with you

I scream at my eyes
Rushing to see right
They lose sight
Through the long and grave night

You lead me
You lead me
And leave me to
To lose my mind

You’ll be forever
Fighting with whatever
Moves you

Seems harmless today
Troubles faraway

It is there to break through
It is there to break through
The wall you always come to
Leave all you can’t hold onto

You make it
You make it
Easy for me
To lose my breath
In time’s wilderness

Seems harmless today
Don’t steer me astray
What are you made of?
I can’t get enough

It is there to break through
It is there to break through
The wall I’ll always come to
The wall I’ll always come to
I take all I can’t hold onto
Track Name: Beyond You
It’s beyond you
All that you are
Is beyond you
All that you are
All that you are

Don’t call it an end
Don’t call it
Don’t call it an end
Wake up again


It’s beyond you
It’s beyond you
All that you are
All that you are
Track Name: I Looked Up
I’d run and yield to
The faint song inside of you
Listen for it coming through
I was just a kid
Long lost but along with it
Trembling, I couldn’t sit tight
With no witness I’d run
Warmed by the summer sun
Asking, asking
For the real story
For the long story
I’d be exhausted
From the times you lost it
I wish you’d close the hole in your head
You’d start to begin
They’d cut you off within
They made sure you held it in
They didn’t want you babbling
They didn’t want you babbling
You’re not around anymore
But somehow I can hear you
Better, better than before

I looked up x3
To you then
I looked up x3
To you then

The days go nowhere
As I imagine being there
Being where you were
It’s too early to tell
But still, I promise I will
I look forward to passing your word

I looked up x3
To you then
I looked up x3
To you

I knew you from long ago
You taught me all I know
You taught me to let you go
Track Name: Kindred One
Out here, out here
We’re growing weak
Slowly from our feet
I’ll go, I’ll go
Find the frontier
You stay and guard
Our shelter here
Be wary, be wary
And armed with
With your readied quiver of sticks
Keep an eye out, keep an eye out
Don’t fall for their clever tricks
So long, so long
Kindred one
Don’t be so
So long gone

Out here, out here
We’re growing weak
Slowly from our feet
I’ll go, I’ll go
Find the frontier
You stay and guard
Our shelter here

Be wary, be wary
And armed with
With your readied quiver of sticks
Keep an eye out, keep an eye out
Don’t fall for their clever tricks

So long, so long
Kindred one
Don’t be so
So long gone
Track Name: The Last Day Of Fighting
Wind curls up in prominence
He surrenders and settled by
The angelic ash tree that rests his heart
Lathered in earth's loam
It's what buried his home
Like an Avalanche
Would've liked to be known
Never had a chance
The most he has shown
Was curled up in the storm

Father of mountains
Why did you let us slip off the precipice
These halcyon days
Would've led to a rising sun
Ancestors in clouds
They have chosen to fall
To the battlegrounds
Fighting for all
And for a second day
Their brothers have passed on
In a faraway
Dancing field
