Track Name: Net Cafe Refuge
Too many people
We are alone in this darkened room
Smoke swirls above my head
Mould fights for life on the ceiling
And I feel
They can hear my every thought in here

Now I can hear, they whisper in my ears again
When I close my eyes I see nothing from before

Standing below the blackened moss
that bleeds from every other home around me
In a sea of blue tiles I stand here alone with only a suitcase
And I have lost my home

People here they disappear
The forgotten shout but no one hears
Shibuya calls again
A sea of faces. But again, I am alone
In the busiest of places

Now I can hear, they whisper in my ears again
When I close my eyes I see nothing from before

Standing below the blackened moss
that bleeds from every other home around me
In a sea of blue tiles I stand here alone with only a suitcase
And I have lost my home
Track Name: The Unforgiving Current
Sometimes I think things
No one should
The Unforgiving Current
Sweeping me away
From the light that illuminates
Everything I've ever known
And I ask myself
Who should I believe?

I stand here alone
Beneath the shadow of all things
And I feel so small

A teenage ghost laughs in the distance
Oh how you've let us down he says
Oh how you've changed

Now and then I try
To drown myself in you
It's the only thing
That even moves me anymore
When I'm sailing through
The current works against me
It's the only thing
That even moves me anymore

Sometimes I say things
I didn't think I could
The heavy fog around me
Clouding my head
And in the light of a new day
Beneath the power lines
I hear you say
Everything is different
And who am I to disagree
Track Name: Dreaming
Dark red painted lips
Won't you walk me home
Look me in the eyes and tell me
That you don't care about
The things I say or anything I do
I hope you know

I don't want to dream anymore
It makes it harder to live
I don't want to dream anymore
It makes it harder to live with it

Tonight the wind it sings
Another lonely song
Can't make out the words
It haunts me
And in this bar I am
Alone and I'm alive for just one night
But when I'm home

I don't want to dream anymore
It makes it harder to live
I don't want to dream anymore
It makes it harder to live with it
Track Name: Mourning Thoughts
Today the sun leaks through
The fabric covering my eyes
Shining on my face
Reminds me what I'm missing
But it's you I think of

I check my phone to see
If anyones still out there
An unfamiliar face
Sanders around this town
Sut It's you I think of
And it's me
Sinking further away from you
Into the sea, can't you help me

And what if everything
The old and new
Dissolves with you
And what if everything
I worked towards
Dissolves into nothing

Another piece of me
Slips away before my eyes
Everyone I know sleeps while I'm awake
Is it me they dream of?
Or are they just sinking further
Away from me silently
Will they wait for me?

And what if everything
The old and new
Dissolves with you
And what if everything
I worked towards
Dissolves into nothing
Track Name: Vanessa
Dying flowers
An unmade bed
A closet full of summer clothes
That keep you near to me

And when I'm stuck
In this unholy place
I picture you in my holy sweater
Peaking through

And nothings real when I'm around you
When I fade away
You bring me back to the surface
And when I go I'll be just one call away from you
We're never truly apart
I'm always one call away from you

Endless hours
Working late
I count the time until you return
And my day starts again

Hopeless lovers
We never choose
There's nothing outside this place
That's more than here with you

And nothings real when I'm around you
When I fade away
You bring me back to the surface
And when I go I'll be just one call away from you
We're never truly apart
I'm always one call away from you
Track Name: Trust
You're more inclined, with my history
To focus more on what went wrong
But don't you ever wonder
What I think about when you're not there

In time you'll find it doesn't work for me
It doesn't make me who I am
Trying to hide under
The excuse that it repeats itself
It's not fair

Don't let it pull you under
Just think about when I'm no longer there
No longer there

Don't let it pull you under
Don't let the time we have just fade away
Fade away

You must decline any fantasies
That give you reason to belong
And now I guess you wonder
What is left for you when I'm not there
Don't despair

Don't let it pull you under
Just think about when I'm no longer there
No longer there

Don't let it pull you under
Don't let the time we have just fade away
Fade away
Track Name: Unlucky Strike
Well I don't mind the end you surely hold
Cause I already know
About the threats you pose
But this time
I know what it's like to be used
I'll just throw you away
Burning out at last I say
This time I quit

A weakened flame closes in on you
Only familiar shame
Can come from meeting you
No more will I ever call your name
As the withdrawal takes my breath
I hold onto what's left of you and I inhale

You already know, so just let go
(You know what is coming next)
Track Name: Mother
Because of you I am
Inclined to say why
I owe this all to you
All this time you stand by
And even when I fall into despair
I never doubt how much you really care

And I tell you all the time
And I know you listen
But I'll be there too anytime

Sometimes you say you're sorry
But it's fine the faults mine
I couldn't do the same
You worked hard and It paid off
And even when it seems that I'm not there
It should be obvious how much I care

And I tell you all the time
And I know you listen
But I'll be there too anytime
Track Name: Acting
Tonight the wind it sings a lonely song
Unlikely friends they'll never meet
This act is ending soon
And the narrative is strange enough
it's far too much for me

And she can't watch anymore
It's not the same as it was before
Morning washes us ashore
This is it for you I'm sure

She thinks that time itself is equal to
The knowledge gained
I disagree
And I won't keep wasting time wandering
If I've become something I hate
Oh no I won't

And she can't watch anymore
It's not the same as it was before
Morning washes us ashore
This is it for you I'm sure

And maybe one day I'll let you into my head
It's not as easy as you think
