Track Name: Feeling Like
Feeling like there’s something wrong with you
You’re feeling like there’s something wrong with you
You got it wrong

Feeling like there’s something wrong with you
You’re feeling like there’s something wrong with you
You got it wrong

Uncertain terms, so to speak
In the moment you feel weak
No comfort you think
In something you can’t see
A lost cause
Cause you’re lost in thought

The rest will turn if you learn
The rest will turn if you learn
The rest will turn if you learn
You got it wrong
You’re not lost in thought

Track Name: Broken Wires
See you, standing on broken wires
I’m wishing to call you
To meddle in your mire

Feel you, tangled in broken wires
I know I can heal you
Unravel your desires

Yeah I can walk right in and feign amid
I can frown or grin, yeah if you let me in
On your broken wires
To meddle in your mire

Won’t you, won’t you take me to be true
I’ll stand along with you
Will pick up on all your cues
I’ll leave you without a clue

Can’t shake them, all of your broken wires
Are you gonna take them
Right down to your funeral pyre

Or I can walk right in and feign amid
I can frown or grin, if you let me in
On your broken wires
To meddle in your mire

Sold them, all of your broken wires
They said they could use them
To start up a fire

Track Name: Blades Green
Can anybody see what we’re missing here
Kissed away, our lips smeared
Can anybody feel what took the place
Of our lives worth living, their quick erase

Did anybody tell you
We found the boy, all curled up and crying
Tears filling the void

He was there and hiding behind,
Hidden truths and found lies, breaking our demise

His lids were heavy, took a few tries
But he turned and sat upright
And we saw that underneath
Were the deepest kind of blue eyes

Figures formed then fell away
With each tear that made its way
To the blades green down to the Earth...

Looking for their rebirth

- ksidorak
Track Name: The Good Fight
Stand up, walk away
It’s the same old shit on another day
Blows your mind but you can’t define
Why you live it and let your fears thrive

You’re giving it up in another way
Eyes are dry your heart can’t find
One way out, you’re frayed
Limbs lips froze you’re here to stay

What you wanted to do
What you wanted to say
What you wanted to do

You wanna take it outside
I’ll be there to meet you
You wanna make it in the night
I’ll bring my light to greet you
You gonna fight the good fight
Or will my army beat you?

(It comes crashing down through the floors above, racing through and what you see it’s true)

Black, white and in between
The look’s not quite what it seems
Scan the crowd for discovery
You miss something that sits in between
The look remains not quite what it seems
Black and white and in between
Body moves, limbs held back
Room empties all for a last laugh

What you wanted to do
What you wanted to say
What you wanted to do

You wanna take it outside
I’ll be there to meet you
You wanna make it in the night
I’ll bring my light to greet you
You wanna fight the good fight
Or will my army beat you?

(It comes crashing down through the floors above, racing through and what you see it’s true)

Black, white and in between
The look’s not quite what it seems
Scan the crowd for discovery
You miss something that sits in between

The look remains not quite what it seems
Back in, back out
Your fight, you’re free
You stand up, walk away
Stand up, walk away

- ksidorak
Track Name: Not Far Gone
You sway, spin away
To another place
Some other place

Not far gone, just away
You’ve beat the race
You’re somewhere without a chase

Beautiful Monsters
Their words became your fears
All sharing the same space
Same like mask like face

I’ve filed away my mind
And so have you spent your time
Chancing on an interface
You don’t need to show your face

Navigate through waters
Viral territory, imposters
Chancing on an interface
Self is gone without a trace

You’ve not lost the fight
You knew the value of
Getting lost in the night...

They’ll say, you’ve lost your way
That your streets have turned to clay
But you’re not soft, your words just grayed

Not far gone, just turned to gray
And you’re alone in a state of grace
It’s somewhere that they’ve misplaced

Beautiful Monsters
Their words became your fears
All sharing the same space
Same like mask like face

I’ve filed away my mind
And so have you spent your time
Chancing on an interface
You don’t need to show your face

Navigate through waters
Viral territory, imposters
Chancing on an interface
Self is gone without a trace

You’ve not lost the fight
You knew the value of
Getting lost in the night...

Track Name: Feats of Snow
Oh mama, won’t you lay beside
Got so much on my mind to free
Oh mama, breath’s inside of me
Living now don’t want this misery

Oh mama, there’s a change inside of me
What I’ve seen it’s what you’d always mean
Somewhere in my child strides
I found all my elder’s eyes

Hurry up, wait though your path’s not clear
All that happens while getting there
Keep it together to fight the fear
All that happens while getting there

System, sole slave master of critique
It all became for me sadness, mystique
Trapped by debts
Living off doubts
Oh mama, how’d you figured it out

I told it why I had to go
Cause you’d shown it how under feats of snow
I told it why I had to go
You showed your power under feats of snow
Yeah I told it why I had to go
Cause you showed me how under feats of snow

Oh mama
Living now
Oh mama
I’m living now

- ksidorak
Track Name: Lazy Drain
Open up and let me in
Sitting quiet for weeks again
Can’t stand for all your words thought not said

Your serpent bites, then siphons
Lazy drain to seep you mind in
Sit in pain to clear the air
Oh the ways in which you care

Affections not ruling
Reflections are dueling
Won’t come into being
Oh the light I was seeing

Scratch tear let the mirror fray
And come into being, the light I was seeing

Your silence your empty space
Your new life here is memory erased...

Have you got the time
To put it on the line
Will you make the time
To work it out of your mind

Open up and let me in
Sitting quiet for weeks again
You know I will stand for you
When you say I can

-ksidorak
Track Name: Aurora
Aurora, leave me be
Leave me in the place where I was new and dreamed
Where choices weren't made
And the dreams wouldn't fade

Aurora, I can barely remember
Did you hold me tight or did you surrender
Leave it to the world to decide my fate
Or is it mine and only mine to make

Aurora, I can barely remember
Was I a little one
Staring up at the sun
Knowing of this life before it begun
Was I looking down
Digging holes in the ground
Searching for something I've never found

Aurora, tell me a story
It needs no words, failure or glory
Nor pictures of change, a puzzle rearranged

Aurora, tell my story
I do not need words, failure or glory
But can you give me one more chance

Aurora, I can barely remember
Was I a little one
Staring up at the sun
Knowing of this life before it begun
Was I looking down
Digging holes in the ground
Searching for something I've never found

Aurora, you mean more to me
Than I knew then, now that here I am

Aurora, shine your light
Shine your light so bright
So I can sleep tonight

- ksidorak
Track Name: Winded Virtues
Awake...

Moves with the wind
Running across your skin
The chill that warms your bones

Now you see it, now you don't
At first it was in your head
Now you feel it in your throat

Trust nearly dead
Lost sight of what’s not seen
And has never been said

Cold wind clenches breath short of faith
Hope a brisk air that cannot fail to wake
What's always alive
But caged up inside
The chill that warms your bones

Awake...

Joy you've been withholding
Still you cannot lose no thing

Moves with the wind
Running across your skin

Love given and then up on
Runs down your weak frame

Cold wind clenches breath short of faith
Will you ever feel the same

- ksidorak
Track Name: Big Kind of Day
It was a big kind of day
She could floor the man with just one glance
Make it real because she took the chance
All is loud all is clear
No more a question of which way to steer

All is at it seems all of it makes sense
No how far do you wanna go

Fear is an everyman on the go
He lurks in your backdrop
And shies away from open crosswalks

All is as it seems all of it makes sense
Tell me how far do you wanna go

Do what you will but do it don't hide
You'll always have us on your side
Take a deep breath step forward look wide
Leave others to chase pride

Simple laughter
In the instance it caught her
Simple as cold water for
One dollar

All is loud all is clear
No more a question of which way to steer
Do what will but do it don't hide
You'll always have us on your side

Take a deep breath step forward look wide
Leave others
Leave others
Leave others
To chase pride

Reality is nothing's changed
It's just real life
It's just real life
Engaged

Prenez une grande respiration
Laissez les autres
Laissez les autres
Laissez les autres
S’occuper de leur fierté

La réalité est que rien n'a changé
La vrai vie est ainsi
La vrai vie est ainsi
Engagé

Track Name: Once I Get Home
One two
One two
Once I get home
Once I get
I get

Are you victorious
Who’s got a hold
It comes crashing
One two three

- ksidorak
Track Name: Torrent
Are you victorious

Crashing down through the floors above
Racing through and what you see it’s true
Crashing down through the floors above
Racing through and what you see it’s true

Ahhh

Your rabbit strikes one, two, three
Will you get down with me
Torrent strips right through your room
Looking to ruin you
Tearing right through your bed sheets
To support or betray your beliefs

As each month stands alone then passes you by
Will you learn from it or will its shadows make you cry

Will it be rid of you
Will you take care of you
Who’s got a hold on you
One time to make yours true

As each month stands alone then you passes you by
Will you learn from it or will its shadows make you cry

Will it be rid of you
Will you take care of you
Who’s got a hold on you
One time to make yours true

- ksidorak
Track Name: Yours
No making up for lost time
Living your worst nightmare

No making up for lost time
Living your worst nightmare

Your heart curled to the edge of the bed
Drifting from the things that it said

Your heart curled to the edge of the bed
Drifting from..yours

You thought more bout them
Then you care to know about yours
When theirs never fit you
No they won’t fit you

Yeah you’re thinking more bout them
Then you care to know about yours
When theirs never fit you
No they won’t fit you

No, they’re not yours

The day is done and you’ve won
You’re staring at the sun
Said screw the same old - uh
There’s more to life than this
You’re kicking your mirror in
You’re letting your light shine in
You’re doing it in your way
You’re living your shade of grey
You’re

Not far gone...

We see it in your eyes
It’s in your broken eyes
Won’t you lose your disguise
Your answer is inside...
