Fatal 03:32
Burn your sins like barbecue Naked in the rain I’ll become that part of you And we can share the blame Drowning in proximity You’re so kind to enable Fumbling through your misery I’m trying to be stable It’s you I would fight for You I can trust You who lifts me higher Up out of the dust Let’s be poisonous together And complicate some lives We’ll be fatal forever Deadly till the end of time You fill your life up with things Without them it looks empty What will those illusions bring When checking out looks tempting Checking out looks tempting It’s you I would fight for You I can trust You who lifts me higher Up out of the dust Let’s be poisonous together And complicate our lives We’ll be fatal forever Deadly till the end of time You You

Big Star 03:20
Electric pandemic Trying to turn out the light and fade into the night Daydreamer, time stealer You don’t appreciate the chance to find another circumstance So go far, big star Meteoric fall Here we are, we’re trying Raise the bar, we’re climbing We’re waiting We’re watching Spying from afar trying to find out what you are So jaded Ill-fated Time is running out to silence Voices that scream out So go far, big star Meteoric fall Here we are, we’re trying Raise the bar, we’re climbing

Pass Blind 03:49
I see you talking all the time When do you listen I hear you crying all the time You should see what you’re missing But you pass it by Like you’re living blind Yeah you pass it by Like you’re living blind I see you fighting all the time Like you’re in a prison Do you think you’ll survive This war that you’re living But you pass it by Like you’re living blind Yeah you pass it by Like you’re living blind Step up real close Real close to the edge They’re waiting like ghosts To take the daily bread But you pass it by Like you’re living blind Yeah you pass it by Like you’re living blind

The Divide 04:38
When you want too much you hide The things you've been denied And when you need more Then you'll take more And it never stops So close the divide Between fear and the rest of your life Close the divide Between here and the other side And when you're reaching for the lie You're bringing it to life And when they need more Then they'll take more And it never stops So close the divide Between greed and the rest of your life Close the divide Between here and the other side Feel your fingers scratching through the wall Feel your fire crawling through the hall Feel your fingers scratching through the wall Feel your fire crawling through the hall You always want too much Always need too much When you need more Then you'll take more It never stops So close the divide Between fear and the rest of your life Close the divide Between here and the other side

It's like the lights turned on when your star burned out Everyone drowned when your wave crashed down We were so close to knowing What you are What you are Our feet lost ground when the sky turned 'round Nobody spoke, but our thoughts were unbound We were so close to knowing What you are What you are We're trying to stand on flooded lands Grasping as life flows through our hands We're trying to sleep on screaming seas Desperate for somewhere else to be Walking lost we cursed the clouds Heavy the cost of a life shot down We were so close to knowing What you are What you are We're trying to stand on flooded lands Grasping as life flows through our hands We're trying to sleep on screaming seas Desperate for somewhere else to be So close We were so close

These voices all around me They tell me what I feel Dead faces that surround me They show me what is real I have to listen so hard To try to hear myself I keep on searching so far To try to see myself If you keep reaching for the past The present moment goes so fast If you want to live a life that’s free You have got to choose what you believe These vices they consume me I don’t know what I feel These places start to blind me Everyone wants a deal But we keep trying so hard We’re fighting to get out We’re gonna make it so far There’s no more room for doubt If you keep reaching for the past The present moment goes so fast If you want to live a life that’s free You have got to choose what you believe You have got to choose what you believe You have got to choose what you believe
