Track Name: Still Frames
Circumstances won’t let you circumvent
What a beautiful little mess you’re in
The stillest frames could still communicate
To a world that’s just too afraid to speak

Don’t be so hard on the ones you love
We wait so long before our time is up

Just keep working on your brilliant exposé
Eventually you might have something to say
Like a character from some nursery rhyme
In a future where you’re way past your prime

Don’t be so hard on the ones you love
We wait so long before our time is up

I’m going nowhere with no direction
Vanished in thin air, out of the question

Waiting for that special time of year
When you’re close and I just lose all fear
The hills and valleys are all safe and sound
Even though they’re all just hollowed out

Don’t be so hard on the ones you love
We wait so long before our time is up
Track Name: Clumsy Words
Clumsy with the shit you have to say
Planets shift and yet the fact remains
A mere reflection of the world at bay
Teeth exposed in the moments of shame

Things could be simpler with a simpler mind
But you weren’t ready when it came time

It’s up to you whether you feel haunted
Playing the victim when you’re the prey
Clouded in a veil of deep confusion
Watching your thoughts as they slowly parade

Things could be simpler with a simpler mind
But you weren’t ready when it came time
