Track Name: Possession (Possessive)
Possession (possessive)
i’ve got a ghost on my shoulder
and if i let him in
it’s possession, not possessive
he’s not possessive, because
you know when you lose your soul, you lose your kindness
and when it has control there is no time left
you lose

so for now, i’m speaking in tongues
spitting the devils word, one by one

so for now, i’m speaking in tongues
grab all your crosses
grab all your torches
burn this one

you know when you lose your soul, you lose your kindness (3x)
When it has control there is no time left

i’ve got a ghost on my shoulder
and if i let him in
it’s possession, not possessive
he’s not possessive, because

you can peel back my skin
what you’ll find, you won’t like

you know when you lose your soul, you lose your kindness (3x)
When it has control there is no time left

i’ve got a ghost on my shoulder
and if i let him in
it’s possession, not possessive
it’s not possessive
Track Name: RX Babies
RX babies
focus, on me
through these pin holes
these pin holes we see
we can breathe (2x)

hyper babies
we all need
the pills to make us, in sync
so we can focus, on what we need
it’s what you need (2x)

it feels a sense of well being
until the sweat begins beating
thoughts start repeating
no hunger, just addicition you’re feeding

focus on me, hype babies
focus on what, you need
it’s all you need (4x)

focus (3x)

hyper babies we need
the pills to make us in sync
so you can focus on me
to make you focus on you (3x)
Track Name: Look To The Sun
Look To The Sun
i guess there’s a time when, we look to the sun
and realize that all of our past loves were only a loss
so we look for another one
yeah we look for another one (2x)
We look for another one

well i’m not holding on
and i’m not holding on

you can call me your anchor
you can call me your rock
but don’t call me your true love
cause i’m not, no i’m not

cause i’m not holding on
so i’m not holding on

i guess there’s a time when, we look to the moon
we take a step back, ‘cause we moved on to soon
yeah we moved on to soon

and i’m not, i’m not
holding on, holding on
i’m not, i’m not
holding on

you can call me your anchor
you can call me your rock
but don’t call me your true love
cause i’m not, no i’m not
Track Name: Counting Cards
Counting Cards
do you feel like yourself
in your own skin
and when it crawls do you wanna jump out of it?

do you feel like yourself
in your own... skin

before
i wasn’t sure what your lying for, oh no
before
before separate ties and separate uniforms

if i was holding all the cards, then i would know the game
but i don’t know the rules so i suppose i shouldn’t play
whats the risk to make a move, is this the end of days
it’s hard to speak in sentences, when i don’t know your name

breaking all my bones
and grinding my teeth
it feels like i’m herding a thousand sheep
just to get to sleep
why can’t i get to sleep (3x)

before (3x)
I wasn’t sure what your lying for
before
these separate ties and separate uniforms

if i was holding all the cards, then i would know the game
but i don’t know the rules so i suppose i shouldn’t play
whats the risk to make a move, is this the end of days
it’s hard to speak in sentences, when i don’t know your name

breaking all my bones
and grinding my teeth
it feels like i’m herding a thousand sheep
just to get to sleep (2x)

breaking all my bones
and grinding my teeth
it feels like i’m herding a thousand sheep
just to get to sleep (2x)
why are you lying to me?!
Track Name: No Moon (Space For Rent)
No Moon (space for rent)
and it’s the trouble we dismiss
as we’re getting on our ships
it’s the trouble we escape
as we gravitate to space

we’re gone (3x)
looking at the ground the fires enveloping
it’s louder than the sound of our bodies jettisoning

we’re just driffting

we’re searching for land
for a planet that suits our needs
we’re so tired of this manufactured air that we breathe

so we’re searching for one star
one hope, no moon

looking at the ground the fires enveloping
it’s louder than the sound of our bodies jettisoning

one star, one hope
no moon, no moon, no moon... (2x)
Track Name: Palindrone
Palindrone
we don’t have time to ourselves (2x)

you say that we’re the same
i say that your insane

this world that we live, we work for the cash flow
world that we live, we cater to assholes
money we spend, we do what we have to
work we put in, we do what you ask us
we do what you ask us

you don’t deserve what you have been given
i’m ashamed of what you worked for
and all this time you’ve been given
we wanted something worth more (3x)

we wanted something worth more

this world that we live, we work for the cash flow
world that we live, we cater to assholes
money we spend, we do what we have to
work we put in, we do what you ask us

you say that we’re the same
i say that your insane

we don’t have time to ourselves (4x)
Track Name: Distant Love
Distant Love
i’ve been searching for a distant kind of love
one that’ll hold on, and let me go when i want
and let me go when i want
let me go when i want

so for now, we meet in public
because you know i’m not made for this
a love i won’t discuss, no

i’ve been searching for a distant kind of love
one that’ll hold on, and let me go when i want
and let me go when i want
let me go when i want

no, not me, not us
no, not now, not us
no oh

we’re just holding handswe’re just holding hands, for now... (2x)

hard to find love, knowing where it was
was it worth it, worth all the fuss
when your talking i’m listening to fuzz
it wasn’t worth, it was’nt what it was

hard to find love, knowing where it was
was it worth it, worth all the fuss
when your talking i’m listening to fuzz
it wasn’t worth

‘cause i’ve been searching
for a distant, but not so distant love
one that will hold on
and never let go, never let go
Track Name: Radio Silence
Radio Silence
i can’t see your eyes
are you watching me, watching you (2x)
since you’ve been gone
i’ve been staring at walls againsince you’ve been gone
i miss your face, the way you walk away

you know where i’m going
are you watching me, watching you

you know where i’m going
are you watching me, watching you
watching you (2x)
Watching me, watching you

if this is what it takes to count him out
then i’ll keep counting down, and you just run away (2x)

since you’ve been gone
i miss your face, the way you walk away

if this is what it takes to count him out
then i’ll keep counting down, and you just run away (2x)

you just run away (2x)
