Track Name: The House on the Hill
Take me to the house on the hill, where the clouds never part.
We put our elbows on the window cill and stare out into the fog.
Waste away the fleeting seconds of forever. Silhouette against the wall.
And it can be just you and me together, we hide away from the world.

The line of pine trees are looking at me and frozen grass is glinting in the sunbeams.
Winter air fills my lungs and the smell of your hair brings me comfort.
Silence is deafening but not when you're with me and empty space and darkness never seem as scary.
Never feel alone when we're on our own. Better is together you make me feel at home.
Track Name: Sweet and Savoury Dreams
So your head tilts forward as your eyelids are growing heavy.
Lean into the weight that’s growing, growing steady
The jolt of nightmares rip you from sleep.
Crisp water, stretching shine across your dreams.

A cavern of secrets, all in my head,
living my lovely lie alone in my bed.
It's time for me to run away it seems,
and start chasing sweet and savoury dreams.

I have seen her, you know I know that dress,
Its fabric worn, it’s black and torn, you know she looks a mess.
It's faded in the sun with ease and the plunges.
It's riddled with holes like Swiss cheese and sponges.

A cavern of secrets, all in my head,
living my lovely lie alone in my bed.
It's time for me to run away it seems,
and start chasing sweet and savoury dreams.

It's hard to decipher, decide if this is fake.
It's winter with peaches, brown sugar, iced cake
It's time for me to run away it seems,
and start chasing sweet and savoury dreams.
Track Name: When It Gets Colder
I'm always a little late and I've got a habit of running away. You say that I am just afraid that maybe, just maybe, one day I'd like to stay.
I'm always growing tired, falling behind. I struggle like I've got something to hide. But walkways pave way to new times, new lives. You say, we stay away. We're safe inside.

I like your whispers in the morning. Together we watch dusk turn into dawn. It's comfortable having you to hold. I guess I like your hand being on my shoulder when it gets colder. When it gets.

You bet that I'll get afraid of this commitment. You said I'm stagnant, permanent. But this feels strange to me, it's different deliberately. i like the warmth the comfort consistently.

I like your whispers in the morning. Together we watch dusk turn into dawn. It's comfortable having you to hold. I guess I like your hand being on my shoulder when it gets colder. When it gets.

I guess I like your hand being on my shoulder.
Track Name: Disease of the Mind
Fatigue is a state of mind, it's a habit that I'm having to fight. Feeling like I'm falling behind cause self inflicted guilt is the worst kind. Out of touch, chasing a rush. Sedated and it's playing at my conscience. Delirious, no fear in us, staining my flesh again.

But isolation feels so comfortable. Irritation behind my eyes, disease of mind.

Consecutive sick days stuck in a thick haze, I'm wild in a cycle that never ends.
Track Name: Explore
Promise me, don’t ever let me
hear you say
that you mean nothing to me

Maybe, I am also in the wrong
and it’s the two of us together
that makes each other strong

So let me go don’t make me stay
Let me hear the things you say
and trust that I will listen and use advice you’ve given

Let me go, don’t make me stay
and know the second that the winds change
I’ll be back for you to hold
Maybe love you a little more
For letting me explore.

Darling, you know I hate to hear you crying
And it tears me up inside to know that I’m the reason why
So please, you don’t need defend me
I know that you’re hurting and it’s because of me

Let me go, don’t make me stay
Just watch me float away
And rest in confidence
That I’ll return someday

Let me go, don’t make me stay
and know the second that the winds change
I’ll be back for you to hold
Maybe love you a little more
For letting me explore.
