light it leaks through 
makes my day
 know all you love 
it lacks soul 
and of all the candle may catch 
what you can use
 
 i just saw you
 rhythm i tried
 it would take you only a while 
and to take it suddenly fair it won't do
 why d'you say you what up and went? 
lied to kid you when you said send 
though meanwhile that was soft hate 
it was true
 
 never saw you live in that call 
lookin back and write on the wall
 did you think it would beat this heart well 
string it through...
 
 loose choir 
unsteady on the stage 
what you loves’t well remains 
loose choir 
love well and it will stay
 
lose that 
i won't redeem another 
lose that 
i won't redeem another
lose that 
i won't redeem another
lose that
 lean on the need
 and i know you never knew quite
 how it feels i've opened the night 
it's enough that connections aren't when 
it was true
 
i just saw you with him 
I tried 
it would take you only a while 
and to take it suddenly fair 
it won't do
 
 never saw you live in that call 
looking back and write on the wall 
did you think it would beat this heart well
 string it through...
 
loose choir 
unsteady on the stage 
what you loves’t well remains 
loose choir 
love well and it will stay
 
lose that 
i won't redeem another 
lose that 
i won't redeem another 
lose that 
i won't redeem another 
lose that 
lean on the need

first of all it leaves a bad ache so i choose good good things to think on there we were heaven sent looks for lights anywhere bleed this out deviled soul look at what doesn't care please in me, make we well, make me well, make me well this seed in me hasn't set, heaven sent only shells i keep my cold eyes locked in a different place i did it well i did it for you with all the cold that kept it down its ring is hard earned i keep my cold eyes locked in a different place i did it well i did it for you when it's deepest in the ground it's ringing harder than the bells do do it enough out of good. bad. always in awe and nearly savoring meet me out when i'm want. looks a lot. doesn't need it. bleed this out deviled soul suddenly it's hard to see it i keep my cold eyes locked in a different place i did it well i did it for you with all the cold that kept it down its ring is hard earned i keep my cold eyes locked in a different place i did it well i did it for you when it's deepest in the ground it's ringing harder than the bells do

Quarry Hymns 05:46
leave it on the hottest day to sink this quarry under what the murder on the pride would bring lion, crow, your kingdom loaded in the stone heart i couldn't keep the woods in you you had to learn about the hardest things the softest side would leave you and on days like these i could take apart my window so let down i was so let down how deep is this soul i feel i'm in? seen a lot of light and done a lot with it how deep is this hole i feel i'm in? seen a lot of light and done a lot with it in the least of the lighted eyes was on a roll and the deep and the sweet hearth couldn't keep the word in you you can draw it in and draw it back pull the past behind you you wanna leave i got it back you can draw it in and draw it back how deep is this soul i feel i'm in? seen a lot of light and done a lot with it how deep is this hole i feel i'm in? seen a lot of light and done a lot with it lately little love could call and get in my way maybe we could draw this out of our dark display lately, little love could call and get in my way maybe we could draw this out of our dark display how deep is this soul i feel i'm in? seen a lot of light and done a lot with it how deep is this hole i feel i'm in? see a lot of light and done a lot with it

Swift Coin 04:50
go in lightly 
load in nightly 
said it so loud
 every mother lies 
in man
 gently
 
every mother'd eyed a better place 
for 
to 
put in half a heart
 
every mother'd eyed a better place 
for
 to
 put in half a heart

how long should anyone wait to be believed? lord knows that all this time was on me you say we gave our hands too soon but darling what made my life was you where did my body go? where did i leave it? where did i leave it? she was your splitting light she was your deafening she was your dream get out of need and slink past the ocean bother to breathe and call it devotion you say we gave our hands too soon but darling what made my life was you where did my body go? where did i leave it? where did i leave it? she was your splitting light she was your deafening she was your dream

soothsayer, i do not adore the voices or flight of birds 
and now all them wooden, a boy or a girl
 they'll fail away
 full stop
 
 lightning and snow
 cracks and slivers 
burned in a row
 
so do not pretend that you do not love war
 i've seen you fight 
and fall on your sword
 blame us not for waiting just has little cause
 i've seen you fight
 
 see the breast 
see the brain 
see the lung
 see the stomach
 cut from the same fur
 
it's winsome and then
 by feeling...
 
the devil makes in

let's see it move send all that matters light it so hot i thought you wouldn't need it in a room across from the sky all the drifters at hand they seldom would get anger i'm in the room selling no matter what you take i'm into hearing you say i wanna see you whoever ran with it it wasn't what you said  i wouldn't stop at a lie i wouldn't see you i wasn't following you stone now laid they'd've never known you now they look away, bring it down before you tryin to sugar my wave wait until they call you level, don't you cave life it does disown you let's see you choose see all that shatters felt it so hot i thought you wouldn't need it in a crew on a ship with no name at the sight of your lips  my blood it shouted sink me whoever ran with it it wasn't what you said i wouldn't stop at a lie i wanna see you i don't mind the slaves of it it wasn't what they bought whoever said you were mine they didn't need you i wasn't following you stone now laid they'd 've never known you now they look away, bring it down before you tryin to sugar my wave wait until they call you level, don't you cave life it does disown you

Blangee Blee 04:08
you pull it to the right
 and i bring it back to center 
i blame it on your pride 
and you blame it on my temper
 
standing on the skin of a cell it was sickle 
for me it was over the coroner, the cripple
 
we'd spend our lives making out middles 
oh to give so much got me so little
 
for all that was said i believe it wasn't unspoken 
you sang it to the wall but the tune it wasn't holdin' 
my guess it wasn't bound to the spine, to the spindle
 for all i lead you from i'm the coroner, the cripple
 
 we'd spend our lives making out middles
 oh to give so much got me so little

Playita 05:56
i had to break from breath of stone
 would of been cold and happy then 
but to break it from it mould
 it lacked the long and wavering
 
leave it a stain, my second chance
 bleaches it cold, not happy then 
and to turn it to his home the lover we were torn from
 
stay with it
on second hand
 bring it back to one night 
gets outta line
leave with it 
don't be a better man
 no harm can come to thee
 wasn't happy with it
 
 stay with it
 on second hand 
bring it back to one night
 we'll save for it
 leave with it
 don't be a better man
 no harm can come to thee
 wasn't happy with it
 
i had to break from breath of stone
 would have been cold, unhappy then 
but to break it from its mould 
to lack the long unwavering
 lean on a stand, my second chance
 even, it's old and happy then
 and to take it from his home
 the lover we were torn from
 
stay with it 
on second hand 
bring it back to one night
 gets outta line
 leave with it
 don't be a better man
 no harm'll come to thee
 wasn't happy with it
 
 stay with it
 on second hand 
bring it back to one night
 we'll save for it
 leave with it
 don't be a better man 
no harm can come to thee 
wasn't happy with it
 
 the lover we were torn from 
the lover we were torn from
 the lover we were torn from
 the lover we were
10.
we believed throughout the peril
 we relied on all we were 
me, i'm tired, and low, and deviled
 leave the veil out 
least it's sure
 
 oh i'm near you
 couldn't be far
 i'm near you
 oh i'm near you
 wouldn't be far
 i'm here
 
 me a child a bow an arrow 
gray the hand the home we played
 weeks would die and fall behind us
 leaves, the lights, 
and stayed the same
 
oh i'm near you
 couldn't be far 
i'm near you
 oh i'm near you
 couldn't be far
 i'm near you
 oh i'm near you 
couldn't be far
 i'm near you
 oh i'm near you 
wouldn't be far 
i'm here
