Track Name: Mantra
Whispers in my ear
There's no escape from what you say
Reciting all my fears
Beating me away

It's too late
To ask you
To give me back my peace of mind
There's nothing
Inside me
Left for you to find

Captured light
Beating tiny wings against the glass
Final flight
First set free then ground into the sand

It's too late
I beg you
Just let me have some peace of mind
I'm nothing
You tell me
All I am is left behind

It's too late
To ask for the right thing
I'm so scared
I run on despite it
A wall of words echoes back again
And it's too late
It's too late

Shouting in my mind
Reciting all my fears
I just want back my peace of mind

There's nothing
Inside me
There's nothing left for you to find
I'm hollow
I'm broken
I just want back my peace of mind

I just want back my peace of mind
Track Name: Greenglitch
Obsessed
Confess
Forget the rest
It's taken all this time to find the things that you do best
It's nice
To know the names of all your little precious toys
Although they all look the same to me
You see
It's not easy
To break the ties
Of lullabies
And grow into the things you need to do
It's true
I'll never understand the way you struggle through
It's every night
It's every day
Your thoughts consumed
The price you pay

Divide
Decide
Or step aside
You're not the only thing I've got to keep me occupied
My dear, it's clear
That even when you're playing games
It's always me that gets the blame
The outcome set, always the same
It's not enough, a breach of trust
When you forget the things that I have sacrificed for us
It's clear, your fear,
Of losing what you hold so dear
It takes the place of any pleasure
There's time to choose, just not forever
Track Name: Sideways
There's a girl on the balcony
She's tired beyond belief
She's seen the last she'll see of me
And dying's a relief

I'll take you home now
'cause it's too late to make amends
There's never time enough
And everything ends

I'm such a sideways dreamer
Never sure if I'm asleep
The pictures linger deeper
Than the memories I keep

We were dancing
Try and catch me
We were dancing
Let your guard down, guard down
We were dancing
Try and catch me
We were dancing
You are the one

I see her turn away
She's smiling to herself
She has her own way
A special kind of wealth

I'll take you home now
'cause it's too late to make amends
There's never time enough
And everything ends
Track Name: Drift
A drop in the ocean
A beat of my heart
A love of mine has wandered
And we both fell apart
I don't know how to find you
The tide washes in
For the first time I'm lonely
But it was just a chance to begin

Lock, snap
Take it back
The beat of my crystal heart fights back
Lock, snap
Fade to black
Do you want to take me on?

Lovers and fighters
Waking up inside us
It's not too late to hear the call
It's not too late at all
One more glimpse
I'm not convinced you will always want to stay
Another new direction
It's easy just to drift away

"You're not the one for me," she said
Never looking back
"It's taken years, but we've got time," he said
Picking up the slack

Lock, snap
Take it back
The beat of my crystal heart fights back
Lock, snap
Fade to black
Do you want to take me on?
