Track Name: Blackout Monologue
no no no no no no no no no no no no no

These are the words I have
Scared of what they don't know
Everything they don't know
Stumble out of my mouth
Scared of where they might go
Everywhere they might go
Voicing all my concern
Cover your eyes for this
Shut them and black it out
These are just useless words
Hiding out in my throat
Everything they don't know

Will we get lost out in the fog?
We're blacking out
We stumble 'round
Will we get lost out in the fog?
We're blacking out
We're blacking out

Something to find your way
Through a thick monologue
Anything in the fog
Wait for this to pass
While we can't see you
There's nothing that you can do
This is the line we cross
Always a hit or miss
Trying to black out this
These are just useless words
Hiding out in my throat
Everything they don't know

Will we get lost out in the fog?
We're blacking out
We stumble 'round
Will we get lost out in the fog?
We're blacking out
We're blacking out
Track Name: The Water is Poison
An earthquake starts
You made it start
And so, the ground gives way
Your feet move now
You feel safe on higher ground
The mountain begins to crumble
The mountain you built will fall

You don't move
'Cause when you move
The ground shakes

The air grows thick
The air is smoke
You fill your lungs with it
You drink the lake
You have no choice
You find the water is poison
The rain you made is poison

You dive right in
And when you're in
You start to sink
So you don't move
And you drown in it

It moves with you
Because you made it
If you don't move
You'll go down with it
Track Name: The Universe and I
The universe and I
We're sure as hell never gonna miss this
It's got us all in scatters

The laws that govern these things
Aren't sure how to handle this
Might have to rip through space and time
Just let it drift away
Track Name: Slowdrift
Get out at once, leave it here alone
All of you together, just move
It stares me down, makes me sweat and twitch
This place is better

All this time

It's not your place, life will happen soon
(I haven't been the same, I don't act like this)
Everything aligns with the last
(I have never really gotten over it)
Take it off my hands, find the last piece
(I talk less or sometimes I won't talk at all)
Our feet are tired
(This is all your fault)

We don't know where we are going, we'll never
(We won't ever, we won't ever)
But we all know where we came from, we'll always remember
(We won't ever, we won't ever)
We don't know where we are going, we'll never
(We won't ever, we won't ever)
But we all know where we came from, we'll never forget
(We won't ever, we won't ever)

All this time
Track Name: Back-Row Souls
Scaffolds and catwalks keep their dust
Ghosts at the doorway welcome us
No one that you don't know

We're shuffling in to take our seat
All the days' fervor in our feet
No one that you can't see

We all found the way
We all found the way
Give it all that you got

Drained and misplaced, it's over soon
Our souls do the cleanup, and we're through
No one that you don't know

We all found the way
We all found the way
Give it all that you got
Track Name: Lines Drawn All Through Me
It's not what I said, but what I'm saying
It's not what I've done, but what I'm doing
All wrong

Take one thing and make it another
It's black and white, it adds up to nothing
All gone

(It's all wrong, it adds up to none, it's all gone)

I am fragments, I am shortcuts
With lines drawn all through me

Dividing lines all through me
You put me down, turn me off, wipe it all out
All gone

(Wipe it all out, all wrong, all gone)

I am fragments, I am shortcuts
With lines drawn all through me

(So turn me off)
Track Name: Holding Back the Ocean
It's just not gonna stop
Track Name: Sea Level
It comes in waves from way out
They push and pull
It pounds and pounds us further down
Undersea
They swirl and churn above our heads
Undersea
Track Name: Siberia
No one can make it
Oh dear god, dear god
Nothing to cling to
Frozen and falling
Frozen and distant
Oh dear god, dear god
Track Name: Turnaround
This might have always been the plan
And we all know
You wish we couldn't but we can
And we all know
We will always understand
So let's just go

Why do we all just stand around and watch?

I think this plays tricks on my mind
So let's just go
We won't ever change our minds
So let's just go
We won't ever find the time
So let's just go

Why do we all just stand around and watch?
