Track Name: Fearless
One look from you everything goes slow
I'm getting dizzy, you're giving me vertigo

Lift my spirits high high high
Don't pass me by by by
This is our time time time
And I feel so alive
Alive

I'm fearless fearless fearless when I'm with you
I'm fearless three two one zero doubts in my head
I'm fearless fearless let's ignite the fire
And burn burn like a wildfire starting to spread
With you I'm fearless

My pulse races, temperature starts to rise
You're a blinding white light, I can't even close my eyes

Lift my spirits high high high
Don't pass me by by by
This is our time time time
And I feel so alive
Alive

I'm fearless fearless fearless when I'm with you
I'm fearless three two one zero doubts in my head
I'm fearless fearless let's ignite the fire
And burn burn like a wildfire starting to spread

With you I'm fearless
Track Name: I've Been a Fool (Toy Guns)
I've been a fool you got me where you want me
even though I thought it's where I wanted to be
I broke the rules and it came to haunt me
even though I thought that I could get away clean
I've been a fool you got me where you want me
heartless and cruel you're coming back to find me
even though I thought I could escape and be free
Track Name: Eats the Light
Paralyzed by my own thoughts
I can't escape the noise
Situation overwrought
Action is destroyed
Superimposed on myself
The ghost in the machine
Connections everywhere, but what is in between

It's on my hands, it's in my head
It's all around, it's everywhere
It's on my screen, it's all I see
It eats the light, it's a machine

Everywhere I look it's a duplication
Reflected back at me
Caught up in the endless bounce
with nothing left to see
Built a home inside these wires
I travel underground
Make my way by digital light
Prometheus unbound
Track Name: Move Too Fast
The pending situation sees me on my own
Move along now
My wild calculations the future unknown
Got to leave myself some distance

Slow down you move too fast
Come along with me we'll make this moment last forever
Like stars across the sky you know we'll keep on dancing on

The lack of motivation keeps me all alone
Just move along
Her razor sharp intentions cut right to the bone
Got to run into the distance


Slow down you move too fast
Come along with me we'll make this moment last forever
Like stars across the sky you know we'll keep on dancing on
Track Name: Sleep When We Are Dead
I think I see the telling glow
So we must pick up the pace
Drop everything and go
Freeze the sun right in its place

I feel them biting at our heels
But we won't go down easily
Let me show you how it feels
Just take my hand and follow me

When the walls are closing in
Don't recognize the world we're in
When the line is wearing thin
And we don't know what we're living in

Take my hand come along with me
We'll outrun the sun
Set ourselves free
We can believe that the night will never end
We can tell ourselves that we'll never stop
We'll sleep when we are dead

I can't do this all alone
So take my hand won't you please
Hold tight and don't let go
No trembling hands or shaky knees

When the walls are closing in
Don't recognize the world we're in
When the line is wearing thin
And we don't know what we're living in

Take my hand come along with me
We'll outrun the sun
Set ourselves free
We can believe that the night will never end
We can tell ourselves that we'll never stop
We'll sleep when we are dead
Track Name: White Light Fadeaway
Static seeps slowly from the VHS
Shite noise overwhelming every synapse
Swallowed by a pixelated sun
In the blinding white light
We fade away

Static swells saturate the TV screen
White light overwhelming every dream
Drown under an artificial sun
In the blinding white light
We fade away
Track Name: Anti-Gravity feat. Oriel Poole
I used to shut down with judgment and affliction
Before you came round my world was black and white
I spent my days going through emotion
Kept my eyes shut closed so tight

You pulled me up like an arc
Rocked the pieces in my heart
I’m amazed that you came
lifting me insane
You gave me spark to my dark
Put the bite back in my bark
Took the weight off my back
Off my off my off my oh

You're my anti-gravity hold me so I don't float away
You're my sugar and my flame everything with you is so good, so together (much better)

I used to hide out running from the season
Fighting my mind out – I was locked inside
I tried to break it weighted by eruption
Forgot about love’s first site

You pulled me up like an arc
Rocked the pieces in my heart
I’m amazed that you came
lifting me insane
You gave me spark to my dark
Put the bite back in my bark
Took the weight off my back
Off my off my off my oh

You're my anti-gravity hold me so I don't float away
You're my sugar and my flame everything with you is so good, so together (much better)
Track Name: Suntan
You gave me a sun tan
You gave me a jar of dirt
You gave me a heartache
That never hurts
You gave me a coy smile
You gave me a tiny shell
You said come over
And stay a while

I went to the west coast
I made no plans
Your smile so bright
I got a sun tan
The sky turned angry
And the clouds rolled in
Being truthful
Was my only sin

Now I'm twisted in the head
About things i should have said
To you

You gave me a your full gaze
You gave me a second chance
You gave me unspoken
List of cans and cants
I left my heart there
I left my castle of sand
I left with one thing
A new sun tan


Now I'm twisted in the head
About things i should have said
To you

Shine your light
Right on me
Track Name: When Our Nerves No Longer Twitch
Missed the last bus
Guess I'll be walking home
Empty streets to myself
All sepia tone
Still wearing my tie
When the sun starts to rise
If I'm in pain tomorrow at least I'll know I'm alive

Heard the last notes
As they faded away
I'm still standing here
But everyone's left the stage
When the walls fall
when the roof splits open wide
I'll be watching it all knowing I'm still alive

When our nerves no longer twitch
When our lungs heave their final breath
When our mouths no longer sing
Then we'll know we've given everything

Missed the last train
Guess I'll be walking home
In the silent streets
It's good to be alone
A little swerve
But I'm staying upright
Shadows all around
I walk into the light

I guess I'll be walking home
I guess I'll be walking home

When our nerves no longer twitch
When our lungs heave their final breath
When our mouths no longer sing
Then we'll know we've given everything

When our nerves no longer twitch
When our lungs heave their final breath
When our mouths no longer sing
Then we'll know we've given everything
Track Name: Sodium Vapor
And we tripped through the woods to hear the traffic
Climbed up the trees skipping out on all our classes
We won't worry about the continental drift today
Crank up the furnace watch the rain collect on an empty street
Count our coins again for the party tonight

And we skipped through the snow there was no traffic
Face pale orange in the sodium vapor
We won't worry about the ozone going away
Crank up the speakers wake up the neighbors
Drown in our drinks while we push up the faders
It's only midnight on Wednesday night

Let the credits roll this is our movie
Turn on the bright lights let everyone see
Let the credits roll over all this beauty
Let the credits roll, let the credits roll

And we ran to the woods escaped the traffic
Climbed up the trees and let the hours pass us
We won't worry about the oceans rising today
And we rode through the rain into the traffic
Streets pale orange in the sodium vapor
We won't worry about the continental drift today

Let the credits roll this is our movie
Turn on the bright lights let everyone see
Let the credits roll over all this beauty
Let the credits roll, let the credits roll
