Track Name: Antipodes
Will I even hear your baby cry?
I’ll try, I’ll try.
I’ll try, I’ll try.

Is growing apart even growing at all?
I feel young, I feel immature.

Let’s just be boys ‘til we die,
Let’s just be boys.

Where are you?
Where am I?
The distance between us is time,
“Just time”

Let’s grow young together forever,
Let’s just be boys ‘til we die,
Let’s just be boys ‘til we die.

Here and there will tear me apart,
Rip me apart at my seams,
Rip me apart ‘til I bleed.

Separated by the core of the Earth,
I won’t resign to distance.
I still remember how it was
When it was different.

If time were rewound,
And I could travel by ground,
With you I’d be found,
With you I’d be found.

Let’s just be boys ‘til we die,
Let’s just be boys.
Track Name: Mother Tongue
I’ll take any word you speak to me,
I’ll hang on every word.
Confide in me.

Confide in me,
I believe in you, so let in the flood.
Have you broken your soul?

I’ll take any word you speak to me,
I’ll hang on every word.
Collide with me.

The blood rushes to my head.
How many more will be misled?

Transformed into something new
by the one - creative, redemptive
Stumbling around your cell - still a captive

Engulfed by the heart of the fire,
Propelled by the fire of the heart.
Lost in the lies of the liar,
Where lives are torn apart.

I find myself crawling along a bloody trail,
Back to you, every time I fail,
Because you made a way
(Because you made a way)

Incapacitated by insecurity
Fear dissolves in the presence of power
You put it on display
(You put it on display)

I find myself falling time and time again
But never lost, never covered
The mystery betrayed
(The mystery betrayed)

I’ll hang on every word.
Speak, for your servant is listening.
I’ll hang on every word.
I’ll hang on every word.

Engulfed by the heart of the fire,
Propelled by the fire of the heart.
Lost in the lies of the liar,
Where lives are torn apart.
Track Name: Bipolar
Settling for less means living for less,
More doubt to confess,
And more wounds to dress.
Looking forward to looking back with regret,
Even though all is not lost yet.
Devoid of faith, we burn the bridges we built to move on
Into the valley that we desperately seek to survive
We need the water that drowns us just to stay alive

How will we find ourselves if everything’s easy?
We need to fight our chains just to stay free,
We need to fight our chains just to stay free.

Time can change a man, and son, I have plenty,
Enough to manifest a fire in my eyes,
Enough to get down from this noose that hangs by me.
When did you last feel alive?

Entropy calls for an answer,
Is disorder right when order seems wrong?
The pattern set demands it,
The pattern set demands it.

With nothing familiar left,
Things become clearer
Unseen becomes seen,
And seen is overlooked
Corrosion reveals the unearthed
Decaying lies, buried truths

Time can change a man, and son, I have plenty,
Enough to manifest a fire in my eyes,
Enough to get down from this noose that hangs by me.
When did you last feel alive?

How will we find ourselves if everything’s easy?
We need to fight our chains just to stay free,
We need to fight our chains just to stay free.

We need to fight our chains just to stay,
We need to fight our chains just to stay,
We need to fight our chains just to stay ... free.

Senses numbed by monotony,
The cycle echoes, spurn it as you will
Deja vu as you’re taken captive again
Surrendered to stasis
(Surrendered to stasis)
Time is nothing and nothing changes.
Track Name: Night Terrors
I pray for the strength to open my eyes,
As I pray for forgiveness for all of my lies.
I pray for the courage to find my way home,
And I scream from the rooftop, for all these things that I’ve done.

I breathe all the cancer into my lungs,
And hope that my wings won’t burn when I get to the sun.
I feel my destruction has led me this far,
So I take off my mask and throw it into the fire.

Our last day and we spend it apart.
Haze falls - could this be real?
Could this be real?
I feel you fade away as I start to decay.

I fall awake to the echoes of screams,
A terrified boy - what has he seen?

Your bone cracks and guilt overtakes me,
My apologies meet your melting face as you fall away,
Why are we always running?
Why must we always run?

Lost in this ocean of night,
I lock myself away elsewhere,
The blinding reminder of who I really am.

Standing, tired, alone,
Retreat to the inescapable.
Hoping not to be held once more,
When morning comes ashore,
If morning comes ashore.
