Avalanche 02:43
These squandered days This relentless need Twist into restless thoughts Swear I won’t admit defeat If I’ve got a plan I’ll be sure to make it through But that fury is alive and that fighter has grown old The days are filled with secrets that I’ll still bury in the snow But I’ve got a plan so I’ll be sure to make it through Let the warmth embrace my skull Lift my grip and I will lose control Fast track to nowhere fast Stay out of the avalanche The sun has yet to burn away But my blood has turned to stone I’ll be thinking of you all the way home My plan is out the window How could I ever make it through? Let the warmth embrace my skull Lift my grip and I will lose control Fast track to nowhere fast Stay out of the avalanche The sun has yet to burn away But my blood has turned to stone I’ll be thinking of you all the way home

Break out the window from the foot of the bed Scream past the trees Just get out of this head from the foot of my bed All my friends are dead and married maybe you should bury me maybe you should bury me All my idols they are dead and buried I think you should bury me I think you should bury me Tonight feels heavy Maybe I should go home Tired of talking round in circles I’m better off alone so I think I should go home I wanna kick down the doors and scream from the top of my lungs Yeah I wanna wake up I’ll shake you til you wake up All my friends are dead and married maybe you should bury me maybe you should bury me All my idols they are dead and buried I think you should bury me But I won't let them bury me

Sink 03:45
When the light streams in my window it burns my eyes more than it should and in case anyone comes by I’ve locked the doors, rest assured Yeah I’m going down I’m sinking into I’m sinking into the ground Yeah I know all the rules but I can’t help skipping stepping stones If I could only control the language again I’d make sense of all these unknowns Well every day’s the same start It’s cold, cold, cold water But every night’s the same dreams I always wake up screaming It wants to take me back Don’t let it take me back But yeah I’m going down I’m sinking into I’m sinking into the ground
4.
Slow 03:22
I will clear out the living room Drag all the furniture out I'm gonna let all the teeth fall from my mouth And I will strip all the bedsheets and I will write all my lists and when I thoughts drift away from me I will call them back in And time will go And time will go and time will go so slow The loud drips of the faucet are ringing all through my ears everything I fixed up only to reappear But oh these other people they talk too much I only wish I knew how I’ve locked up all the words left to scream about And time will go And time will go and time will go so slow Well I’ve got all the books and the pages to read all about And I’ve written all my scripts, and my days they’re all planned out now But l still hate it when that sun goes down I still hate it when that sun goes down

Green 03:29
Too easy looking at everyone Self doubt leaves me undone
6.
There’s bound to be a record on repeat I guess that joke’s on me If you’d be walking out that door Walking out that door And that couch that I still need That cemetery across the street What did I move out here for? Move out here for Well I am an ocean with the soul of the divine But it all dries up for me this time So when night rolls in I’ll settle in To sleep again So you’ll hope for a clean break down Smoke signals across town Just hoping I’d soon forget Soon forget I’d rather burn this to the ground Scatter ashes all around And you’d be left for dead left for dead Well I am a river with the soul of the divine But it all dries up this time So when day breaks I’ll awake and say that You’ll always be alone you’ll always be alone
