Track Name: Ruin
There's a backlit face, and it's watching me
I hope it holds me down while I sleep
I am restless, too big for these halls
Too much holding me up, too much to let me fall

I'm going back to the start to re-learn how made of ruin we are

I know I'll be flooded with air so I can breathe again
It stings, I'll come back to life in the end

I keep a diary of all the people I'd save
It locks me in, it keeps me contained
I'll roll my eyes back, I loved letting go
Think of home, let the bodies take hold
Track Name: The Lights Went Out
How do you think it feels to not know where you came from?
You're taught of a star that's a guiding light, but that myth shatters in such good time
I think what you'd think if you could see me
I've come to accept that you can't, and there's no light that shines infinitely

It's so final, nothing happens for a reason
It's so final, what is there left to believe in?

I gripped onto what I had left
I set fire to everything else

Some say that we will meet again
But that's just something I can't put my faith in
When the lights went out on the porch of your house
I kept them on in mine
Track Name: Inhale/Exile
I'm silent when you turn your head
Let's pick it up instead
The attack of opinion that started it all just makes me feel so cold
You're all out of touch and alone

I spoke to the walls at the Old Duke, they said you'd amount to dust on a stage
Inhale

When you leave take something, 'cause this year I've learnt nothing
Except honesty doesn't mean answers
I'm just treading water in a sea that gets colder every time I push it
Just wish I had left it
