1.
AN AFTERTHOUGHT WHITE NOISE AND THE TEMPERATURE OF LIFE ALL HOLLOWED OUT JUST WAVE AND REFRACTION I CATCH MYSELF STARING OFF INTO GREY DISTANCES THIS WORLD HAS TURNED HAUNTED AND ASHEN I CAN FEEL MY HEART STRAIN CONNECTING ALL THE LOVE AND PAIN OF RECENT YEARS IN A MOMENT OF RAW FEAR I UNRAVEL THE CAUSE OF EVERY HEARTBEAT'S START AND PAUSE WAKE UP I'M SORRY I TRIED ENVELOPED IN YOUR GOLD I'VE STARTED TO FALL THROUGH MYSELF I'M DYING
2.
I TORE DOWN ALL MY DREAMS TODAY LOCKED IN YOUR EMBRACE I CRIED AND THOUGHT OF ALL THE YEARS WE'VE LOST I SAID THAT I'D BE TRUE, I KNOW BUT NOTHING TRUE IS TRUE FOR EVERMORE IN SADNESS DREAMS ARE LOST AND TIME CUTS TIME FEEDING THE SHADOWS ON THE WALL WE BREAK ALL TOMORROWS AS WE FALL AND NOW I'M FEELING THE SORROW ALONE STILL COUNTING THE SATELLITE LIGHTS YOU'RE AGAINST THE WALL AND I CAN FEEL YOUR EMPTINESS AND ALL THE SADNESS STRIP AWAY YOUR HOPE FOR BETTER THINGS TO COME IT'S A MIRACLE TO ME THE WAY WE WERE, THE WAY WE COULD BE WE WERE SOMETHING REAL BURRY YOUR FEARS DEEP INTO THE GROUND AND LET THEM ROT TOUCH ME, HOLD MY HAND I MEAN IT, LET'S MAKE SURE THAT THIS COUNTS WE COULD BE REAL LET'S THROW OFF ALL THOSE SECOND SKINS AND WAKE UP RAW AND OPEN LET EVERYTHING WE'VE GIVEN UP REMAIN ASLEEP AND FROZEN WE COULD BE REAL

► SWORDS 04:22
SUMMER TIME, IT MADE ME FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU AGAIN BUT OUR DAYS BRED COLD NIGHTS YOUR PRUDISH CHILL, YOUR ABSTINENT DRILL I'M SICK OF YOUR BELIEFS TIME FOR US TO GROW UP WE'RE MADE FOR MORE THAN THIS AND YOU'RE IN MY WAY OUR SHARP DECLINE IN PASSIONATE LUST TELLS ALL THERE IS TO TELL IT'S PURITAN AND JUVENILE SOONER OR LATER WE'LL FALL OUT OF LOVE AND WHAT DO WE DO THEN? JUST SUCK IT UP AND WORK IT OUT? WE'RE MADE FOR MORE THAN THIS YOU'RE IN MY WAY I NEED TO BE LOVED BY SOMEONE ELSE MORE SEXUAL THAN YOU A KINDRED HEART'S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH I KNOW THIS IS CRUEL BUT CRUELTY IS A PART OF WHAT WE ARE SO MIGHT AS WELL DRAW SWORDS NOW WE'RE MADE FOR MORE THAN THIS YOU'RE IN MY WAY
5.
I’M LYING HERE OBSESSING OVER YOU YOUR SOCKS PULLED KNEE-HIGH AND TIGHT
 YOUR SKIN GLISTENING AND WET THE ARDOR OF UNSTEADIED HANDS 
THE WASTEFUL INNOCENCE OF YOUTH OUR WISTFUL ADVANCES AND RETREATS AND YOUR TENDERLY WHISPERED APPROACH YOU ARE COMING TOO SOON AND I THINK OF YOU ALL THE TIME 
IN PERFECT BLOOMS OF COLOR REFRACTING IN ABSTRACT COLLAGE 
AND I MISS YOU, AND I MISS MY OWN LIFE
6.
► STARASH 05:25
ALL TRUTH AND LIES ARE JUST STARASH AND STARDUST
 SHATTERED DREAMS ARE BUILT FROM THE SAME THINGS AS LOVE IT'S CONCEITED TO THINK LIFE COULD BE AS EASY TO MEND AS IT WAS EASY TO BREAK YOU WERE NEVER IN LOVE WE WERE NEVER IN LOVE BUT THERE'S PEACE IN DESPAIR AND ISOLATION WHEN NOTHING IS POSSIBLE, EVERYTHING'S PERMISSIBLE TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN TO THOSE WHO WAIT FOR LIFE TO START ANOTHER DAY YOU WERE NEVER IN LOVE STARASH, FOREVER AFTER, TO STARDUST THIS IS ALL LOVE IS THIS IS ALL WE ARE
