Track Name: True
I am all washed out
I am lost and found
I am coming down now

In the silence here
I can hear my heartbeat
I have been found out now

These broken bones
I am alone
I know that now

When the night breaks here
I can see the stars so clear
I know it now
Track Name: I Can't Change Now
Hold me in your arms like I am sinking now
So I won't slip down into that deep abyss

Find me in the shallows where I will not drown
Or be swallowed by the tides that change and shift

I can't change now

Hold me in the water where the rapids flow
So the moving shifting sands can't cover me

Let the wind roll past and break the silence now
In that endless pure morning I am free

I can't change now
Track Name: Sister
You are black and blue
Cut and bruised
But just beneath
Your skin and teeth
You are made of stars
Not these battle scars

In pre-dawn light
Stand and fight
I see it now
Your furrowed brow
Oh, the sweat it breaks
Do not hesitate

Sister I am sure
When you hit that floor
You are going to set their hearts on fire

Sister I am sure
They'll take more and more
But never stop you
Never break you down

When they cry victory
Stand with me
Just beneath
Our skin and teeth
We are made of stars
We are made of stars

And as the morning breaks
I swear I'll hold on I won't let you drown

And on each broken bone
I swear I'll rage until my lungs give out

And as the ground we stand on shifts and changes I will pull you out

Against the rising tide we will find hope we will find solid ground

Like a bird you'll soar
Away from all
That misery
You will be
Home at last
And free
Track Name: Oh, Infinity
The sky above us now
The ground below
Oh, infinity
We are home
Track Name: Keep Me Close
I was wandering
Out of sight but listening
I heard your voice somewhere near
Like a song I haven't learned

And kiss me hard
Tell me bout those little scars
Carved into the very earth
That holds us in its hand

Keep the fire lit
Keep me close, keep me in orbit
Show me how the heavens open
If you look just right

And I will keep a leaf
Bury it in a book you'll see
Every time that you walk past
That shelf on which we belong

Hold me in the street
I don't even care who sees
They can throw us in the ocean
Where we will sink like stones

And if you're with me there
I won't cry, I won't be scared
I could hold my breath forever
If you held my hand
Track Name: It's Too Late I'm Awake Already
Tired of these cages
I'm tired of this room

Ripping out the pages
Just to help me cope

But I'm still tied to you
I'm still tied

Constantly in transit
Even when I'm standing still

Hoping that I'll let go
Knowing deep down I never will

But I'm still tied to you
I'm still tied

I find it hard to surface
I find it hard to fake
I'm finding it hard to tell you
We've lost our way
We've lost our way
We've lost our way
Track Name: At The Bottom Of The Lake
I saw you
A white hot flame
To torch this town

This panic
My middle name
Don't find me out

The heartburn
The great escape
Between the bars

I'm gone now
A sleight of hand
The brightest light
Can't find me now

I am sure
I will pay for this
I will burn for it
