Lotus 02:56
My consciousness sits Inside my hiding place head I've tried all the tricks But why? My mind just plays dead Why can’t I just train my mind? Why can I not just ask it nicely? My ego mocks me As if my shit means something I can’t find my words Unheard, I’m blurry nothing Why can’t I just train my mind? Why can I not just ask it nicely? And why is my body locked? When I find the key I’m finally free I'm a hopeless child in the open wild With a smoky smile, stuck in lotus style Why can’t I just train my mind? Why can I not just ask it nicely? And why is my body locked? When I find the key I’m finally free

Sun 03:30
Dirt covers this earthling And I’m searching for more on the ground Cause the world where you’re supposed to be perfect Is worthless in the forest I found Though I should be rolling And controlling the highs and the lows When I roam through the garden I’m growing I’m just hoping that someone will show Sun, why are my eyes closed now? Sun, why are my eyes closed? They’re always closed now I see the shadow inside me It’s been hiding and waiting for light But it’s grey outside I need the universe bright and shining To find me a beautiful life But I am going backwards And I am slowing faster now Sun, why are my eyes closed now? Sun, why are my eyes closed? They’re always closed now All I want is to wake up to something new And find you finally hiding in my room To pull me from these roots Into the Sun, why are my eyes closed now? Sun, why are my eyes closed? They’re always closed now

You 04:34
I wanna call forth the forces I wanna make the push to pull you home I wanna know your name and number I wanna hear the sounds of you exposed I see you see me fucking dreaming Heavy breathing, you’re spinning round your spine I’ll take you horseless to my fortress You can’t ignore this sign Are you starting to feel heartbeats syncing up with mine? Race me baby cause we’re wasting time I’ll be keeping my body ready to rise And you’ll be begging to pull me inside Let’s go missing in the bliss this skin needs Our tongues twisting while you whisper with me Is this a song to turn you on to? And do you want to know who it's about? She’s in the future, you maybe knew her Or, wait, are you her now? Are you starting to feel heartbeats syncing up with mine? Chase me baby cause we’re wasting time You! You! Envision every single scene where I’ll always be there loving you alone And think of every single season And all the reasons you are my home You! You!

Pearl 03:45
I’m attached to this distraction But the now is all I know I’m gonna use you while I have you And then I’ll let this decompose I don’t know if I Need you or the time But something is missing inside I want all of your deepest lies I want all of the secrets you disguise I want all of the things you hide I want all of your future lives You’re mine You’re trapped, tricked, and blind And swept up by my selfish mind I know I lack self-control But you knew that a long time ago I’ll change the tempo I’m hard to let go But this love is self-destructive And there’s nowhere for us to go I hope I lose you before I leave you Because you’re stronger than this, you know

Strings 04:30
I need you To pull my river strings Telling me to care enough And finish my whispering Listening to everything I’ll ever sing Not liver wasting But forgiver facing Forever force me to see I need visions of you and me In your dreams Cause I feel you inside Putting words in my mouth But I know it feels right And I can’t force you out Will you stretch me to stride? Can you push me around? Or I’ll fall down I breathe you Like you’re oxygen Turning all of my blood red Spread out through hollow limbs Crawling under razor-thin Paper skin I’m physically sick When ripped from your twisting arms I cannot move My gut is an empty room The bile is you Cause I feel you inside Putting words in my mouth But I know it feels right And I can’t force you out Will you stretch me to stride? Can you push me around? Or I’ll fall down You hold Me together like bionic bones But you’ll know That I’m human when stripped of my clothes I’ll show All my colors like open windows And I’ll grow When I learn how to be all alone My mind’s broken But I will open again I am broken But my mind’s open again
