Track Name: Shell
having these days too much
where I just can't find myself
hearing the creeping doubt in my brain
back to my shell - oh well
doing this by myself
fighting help - scared of repair
it's my reality but I'm not sure
if it's even real

there was
something inside my head
that threw me into hell
but you took me by the hand
and you pulled me out of my shell
it was a formless beast
and it knew just what I fear
so thank you for telling me
what I needed to hear

feeling the voice of a friend
lift me up feathers and light
asking myself I choose broken brain
and being afraid - oh why
hearing the creeping doubt
still the same - it's always there
it's my reality but I'm not sure
if I even care

there was
something inside my head
that threw me into hell
but you took me by the hand
and you pulled me out of my shell
it was a formless beast
and it knew just what I fear
so thank you for telling me
what I needed to hear

you don't need, you don't need their help
trust the dream, trust the dream in your shell

you don't need, you don't need their help
but I do! and I want it!
trust the dream, trust the dream in your shell
I don't feel safe in my head anymore!

there was
something inside my head
that threw me into hell
but you took me by the hand
and you pulled me out of my shell
it was a formless beast
and it knew just what I fear
so thank you for telling me
what I needed to hear

so thank you for telling me
what I needed to hear (x4)
Track Name: since U
love is not a young game
it's something that you learn through loss
and I wasn't ready to play
but then we met again and let life teach

I am dancing with the thought of you
we're wrapped in lace
I am following the trail you leave
watching you go farther and farther away

as we age, every day
struggling to control the rain
love keeps
shuffling through the grooves in my brain
I have to know
could you really be the one?
we're too young
but nothing's been the same since U

stuck inside a heatwave
you and I, fire in my head
and I'm always feeding the flame
wondering if I'll see you again

I am dancing with the thought of you
we're wrapped in lace
I am following the trail you leave
watching you go farther and farther away

as we age, every day
struggling to control the rain
love keeps
shuffling through the grooves in my brain
I have to know
could you really be the one?
we're too young
but nothing's been the same since U (x2)
Track Name: Bubble Music
breathe me in
our poison
be a bubble
to be safe in

every week it's the same thing
crafting a sea where we swim
where we drown
you won't make a sound
now I've crept in, and
you can't escape from the love that you've found

is this not what you wanted?
your bubble may have popped
but you will always need me

I am not some voice from above
I am fear, I am doubt, I am love

make the same mistakes
but you blame it on me
say you need to let go
and I won't set you free

every week it's the same thing
crafting a sea where we swim
where we drown
you won't make a sound
now I've crept in, and
you can't escape from the love that you've found

is this not what you wanted?
your bubble may have popped
but you will always need me

I am not some voice from above
I am fear, I am doubt, I am love

did you think I would define you?
make you whole? give you any answers?
do you see now that love isn't really truth at all?
how could you let me dig inside and manipulate you?
make you long for your old life in the bubbles
did you think I would let you go so easily? no;
I'm a parasitic bookmark in your brain
every day's the same when I'm in your brain

is this not what you wanted?
your bubble may have popped
but you will always need me

I am not some voice from above
I am fear, I am doubt, I am love
I am what you thought life was about
I'm the one that you can't live without

being afraid, being afraid, being afraid
knowing that love's not truth
pocket of air, pocketing me, pocketing you
know what I am to you
Track Name: Lunar Love
i'm spinning around the truth
it isn't you; it's your celestial kiss
plus the passion you beam bright blue
when we've only seen thirty-one days like this

you ask me under moonglow
"have you ever known a night in space?"
I see you with my eyes closed and I know
by morning I won't remember your face

lunar love!
lunar love!
lunar love!
see you next month!

you ask me under moonglow
"was it really love? or did you always know?"
I see you through a cat's-eye and I say
"I'm really messed up; you really should go."

lunar love!
lunar love!
lunar love!
see you next month!
Track Name: Gambit
never been known to take risks
your strange hand compelled me to resist
we'll take control and brew our own storm
but I could not walk that path with you, my gambit

my gambit (x16)

taking steps without knowing why
thinking everything's a waste of time
did I miscalculate my faith in you?
it's hard to know what's right

my gambit
taking steps without knowing why (my gambit)
my gambit
thinking everything's a waste of time (my gambit)
my gambit
did I miscalculate my faith in you? (my gambit)
my gambit
it's hard to know what's right (my gambit)
Track Name: December
we're trying out something new
not speaking to me
not speaking to you
not breathing our steam
this could've gone on and on and on
on and on and on
when we needed to move on

mmm, my portal to
you is closing soon (x2)

mmm, my portal to
you is closing soon (x4)

I could've gone on and on and on
on and on and on
I need to move on

mmm, my portal to
you is closing soon (x2)
