Track Name: Pleasant Remarks
I'm watching the rain fall down my
windshield I have for a while now,
a while now, oh why now

And it's leaving quicker than you ever said you loved me
cause those words they fleet on little feet
making paths that stain from us to them,
and now it's just a silent sin

Oh quicker than you loved me, loved me, loved me
Say it like you want me, you miss me, I need to
Map a path from our words to heal up our sore souls
You're leaving quicker than you loved me, loved me, loved me

And those paths are writing in the storybook of lying under
Sheets of rain and snow and all the lovely things below, weighing down in us from just another show of
Complexity in its simplest form of living is to
just be with you during all those little silly times
Tracing paths with words and cranking out our silly rhymes
Under sheets of snow and every lovely thing below

Oh quicker than you loved me, loved me, loved me
Say it like you miss me you want me I need to
Map a path from our words to heal up our sore souls
You're leaving quicker than you loved me, loved me, loved me

I'm watching the rain fall down my windshield I will be for a while now, a while now, a while now
Track Name: Bedtime Stories
Hush there my dear now don't you fear
What's a'wreaking havoc underneath your mattress
No snakes or ghosts, no friendly hosts
You're not gonna find him, lurkin' in your mind hun

Cut it open let it out, breathe right in and drown it out
parasitic, none left in it, slowly getting more acidic
Taking the life right out of me,
heaven seems like a place to see

until Sunrise, making it's way back into your eyes

Don't fret my dear, what's there to fear?
You're in Safety's arms now there's no cuts or harm now
Those snakes and ghosts they're friendly foes
Learn to pick your battles, they're what shine and rattle

until Sunrise, making it's way back into your eyes

Learn to pick your battles, they're what shine and rattle
Track Name: Icarus
Your fingertips provide my lips
with mazes to follow
we start from the end and work our way in
this labyrinth so hollow

You swore on that storm
we'd find ourselves torn
Falling faster
Catch me slower, and I'll lower us down to the sea

I fashioned these wings with hopes to begin
Something more stable
How could I know that someone
had stolen that from the table?
Track Name: Quiet Lights
A quiet night
with stormy skies
I walk to your door in the rain
to feel my brain

A screeching light
and glowing eyes
the forest beckons to your call
and you hear the angel fall

can you feel your face
when you're diving through the rain?
can you see your dreams
as they wash away the pain?

I know that it's hard,
I know that it kills you
but all of these wars,
they build you

So keep holding, keep holding on
keep fighting, I'll make you strong

'Cause it's those quiet nights
they bring you light
