The coast seems somewhat clear Could it be drawing near? Stay in your homes / out you go Down you go The coast seems somewhat clear Could it be drawing near? Stay in your homes / out you go Down you go My skin's been beaten blue and black (Burned down and cold you left me) But the bruises beat the blue right back (And mirror every blow you send me) Drink in the twisted almanac (Nevermind, I've had plenty) I'm self-inflicting cataracts (Can't let hindsight be 20/20) The coast seems somewhat clear Could it be drawing near?

Confine Me 03:53
I'm on the outside, looking out But bricks and wires block the clouds So I'm on the inside, looking in And I don't know how long it's been Confine me into a prison The walls only echo my cries Come find me, I'm in the system A number, a digit, a lie I'm on the outside, moving out Through bricks and wires, above the clouds So I'm on the outside Confine me into a prison The walls only echo my cries Come find me, I'm in the system A number, a digit, some lies (You'll never) Confine me into a prison The walls only echo my cries Come find me, I'm in the system A number, a digit, a lie

It's hard to focus on what to focus on The colours mix into a grey Maybe to sit in silence is all I've ever done But it feels so new to me It's hard to focus on what to focus on The colours mix into a grey Maybe to sit in silence is all I've ever done But it feels so new to me My veins are churning away But here my muscles stay To swim away is only to raise the wave And so I'm rotting in place My veins are churning away But here my muscles stay To swim away is only to raise the wave And so I'm rotting in place

Waveshaper 02:03
Re-arrange my tones Build me up I'm feeling low Twisted, hectic bones I'm still screaming in your shadow Vaccinate with a happy song Suicide with a pacemaker Just had to smile all along A bullet-ride on the waveshaper Re-arrange my tones Build me up I'm feeling low Twisted, hectic bones I'm still screaming in your shadow Vaccinate with a happy song Suicide with a pacemaker Just had to smile all along A bullet-ride on the waveshaper Vaccinate with a happy song Suicide with a pacemaker Just had to smile all along A bullet-ride on the waveshaper

Home? 06:08
The corner where the lands meet Division and pain for the colours we shed The border in the sand beneath our feet Invisible paint, the blood of the dead I'm not one of you Don't tell me where I can't go Just passing through I ride my own undertow (Home) I'm not one of you Don't tell me where I can't go Just passing through I ride my own undertow The corner where the lands meet Division and pain for the colours we shed The border in the sand beneath our feet Invisible paint, the blood of the dead I'm not one of you Don't tell me where I can't go Just passing through I ride my own undertow

You shouldn't let your ego breed With far too many mouths to feed You can't just let your newborns breath Then cut the cord and let them bleed You shouldn't let your ego breed With far too many mouths to feed You can't just let your newborns breath Then cut the cord and let them bleed No comment As you wrestle against the flow of the torrent And the vessel sinks below to the bottom Is it really true it's all been forgotten? When the rest of the crew find themselves rotten You shouldn't let your ego breed With far too many mouths to feed You can't just let your newborns breath Then cut the cord and let them bleed No comment As you wrestle against the flow of the torrent And the vessel sinks below to the bottom Is it really true it's all been forgotten? When the rest of the crew find themselves rotten You shouldn't let your ego breed With far too many mouths to feed You can't just let your newborns breath Then cut the cord and let them bleed No comment As you wrestle against the flow of the torrent And the vessel sinks below to the bottom Is it really true it's all been forgotten? When the rest of the crew find themselves rotten

This didn't have to be an avalanche The gust through the leaves didn't have to break the branch This didn't have to be an avalanche The gust through the leaves didn't have to break the branch This didn't have to be an avalanche (Never thought you'd be the one to leave me snowblind) The gust through the leaves didn't have to break the branch And endless supply of fear Is the only reason that I'm still here You're a recipe for a bullet through my head Let me do me is that alright? And I'll let you do you without a fight But do me wrong and I reserve the right To rip your world in two, like mine And endless supply of fear Is the only reason that I'm still here You're a recipe for a bullet through my head Let me do me is that alright? And I'll let you do you without a fight But do me wrong and I reserve the right To rip your world in two, like mine It hurts to call you a bad name So I'm not gonna call you a bad name I'm just gonna sit in silence And then re-digest the pain Thanks for the cracks Thanks for the cracks

CMYK 03:54
The branches of the trees they guide me home They all point away from the centre of the warzone The branches of the trees they guide me home They all point away from the centre of the warzone It's been years Since we've seen the Sun Without the clouds of dust Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky of CMYK The bodies in the trees they guide me home They all point away from the centre of the warzone It's been years Since we've seen the Sun Without the clouds of dust Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky of CMYK We'll find a way to saturate We'll find a way to saturate We'll find a way to saturate We'll find a way to saturate We'll find a way to saturate We'll find a way to saturate Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky of CMYK Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky Against the grain we'll find a way We'll find a way to saturate And we'll fly away in a sky of CMYK

Driiifter 10:12
Just let me drift Just let me drift Every step of the way you've had something to say Pushing the agenda to try and turn our blood grey It's not your life but you live it anyway Wasting your time in someone else's right of way You can't use your weapons anymore Not with the wrong kind of blood on your sword Rip the cap from your head These walls could use a splash of red What's another few bodies on the floor? Just let me drift Just let me drift Clip through the binary Drift with pain behind me Free to wear my colours bright Burn out your monochrome eyes Clip through the binary Drift with pain behind me Free to wear my colours bright Burn out your monochrome eyes (Just let me drift) Just let me drift Just let me drift Just let me drift Just let me drift Just let me drift (Just let me drift) Just let me drift Just let me drift (Just let me drift) Just let me drift Just let me drift (Just let me drift) (Just let me drift) (Just let me drift) (Just let me drift)
