Track Name: Fugue State
Are your dreams just as you want them?
In that final race have you tripped up or fallen?
Well I've torn myself from the grips of the sand
At the depths she's changed all her plans

What can I do?

Only wish I could find my way back
Retrace my steps, into the pitch black
Under ocean, never over
Under ocean, never over

You know you've met your match
When you start falling back
In that race you've been so far

Under my affections,
All your recollections
All your wasted time

My time, my life, take what you would give me
My time or my life, take what you would give me
Take what you would give me
Take what you would give me

You know you've met your match
When you start falling back
In that race you've been so far

Under my affections,
All your recollections
All your wasted time
Track Name: Coast Is A Ghost
She says no need
To justify my means
Blind streams of night
But love walks with me

I see my own death
Fall out of my head

The coast is a ghost
I want you to know
Our past doesn't last
Our futures don't show

If I try to relate she is
Already gone
Is it really so great?
Is it so beyond?

I see my own death
Fall out of my head

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

The coast is a ghost
I want you to know
Our past doesn't last
Our futures don't show

Wrapped up in dripping chain
Didn't know I'd be here again
Is she on, is she still alive
At the end of the other line?

The coast is a ghost
I want you to know
Our past doesn't last
Our futures don't show
Track Name: Murked
Hear how you speak as if I never try
Want the same things if you want another life
Knock my legs out under me, I'll drift alight
If you want you can trouble me, every night

Feet first, chest deep, current flows, carry me
I've yet to wake, my heart lies, the city glows, on the rise

All my time spent, out alone, how could you know?
With my eyes closed, I don't feel, anymore

If you will it, I will want it
I just need someone to go with
If it's dawn then I must be dated
And by now I know you have made it

Knock my legs out under me, I'll drift alight
If you want you can trouble me, every night
Track Name: Hanalei Bay
You're never what you
Want to be
Just hope to die and
Hope to leave

Strung along trees
On cotton rope
Hanging shirtsleeves
Do you have to go?

I see our love on
Horizon's eye
Our lives are not far
From another night

Never sleeping
Just try to think
It won't last for long

Rolling over, rolling back
Adding losses to the stack
Will I see you anymore
Letting pictures flood the floor

Lately, it's not my fault
And not yours at all
Our skin starts to flake
How long does this take?

Know that, I'll keep on trying
Where's that silver lining?
See you moving away
Leave my heart by the bay
Track Name: Atlantic Downs
Hold me under, hold me in,
I can't lose myself to this
Says she can't take the street heat
Swallowed again by the great deep

Try to tell me to lose my aim
Would you follow me all the same?
I'm still trying to be homesick
Stop me if you've heard this

Lost my way, my youth, my light
I need what's best, my wants, my life
I see no end, my end's in sight
I see no end, my end's in sight

Moonlight fades in
As the night starts to shapeshift
I think she wants to keep me there
Out of the mist, we are nowhere

Take me into your next moment
I'm surprised you'll go with me
When I don't notice anything

I'm still trying to be homesick
Stop me if you've heard this
I'm surprised you notice anything

Lost my way, my youth, my light
I need what's best, my wants, my life
I see no end, my end's in sight
I see no end, my end's in sight

(You might think it's better if we survive together,
but I'm on the ride, and the sun is behind)
Track Name: Steambath
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Dawn Patrol
Lost you to the evening surf
I can hurt just like you hurt
Coral twisting into paths
Want something I've never had

Met you at the river cross
Shallow end I felt so strong
I want something I've never had

In the clear, she wants control
Sure you are no dawn patrol
In the clear, she wants control, but you're
Sure you are no dawn patrol

So far away that I could burst
Close enough to be your first
Let me live for you instead
Not for better, not for rest

Want my body to be clear
Bound to dust and salty air
Plans to shape and then to leave

But I am in the ocean deep

In the clear, she wants control, but you're
Sure you are no dawn patrol

And now I'm awake, I can finally taste all the
All the blood, all the blood, as I'm carried away to the
Splits from the place where she's broken to me
See the blood, see the blood washing out to the sea

I used to dream, used to dream I was down in the dirt
And now I fall back in line waiting out in reverse
How could I lose what I've loved? What's it matter to me?
I watch the blood, watch the blood washing out to the sea
Track Name: Riverflow
How surreal
To be here
From the darkness, will you let me in
I can't decide, I'm wearing thin see me

Lose my way
Sent me out
I run to see what's still around
It's statues of a fading sound

Won't you come out and make me
Into what you're wasting
If you are so with it
Then show me your limit now

Is it my thoughts or
Is it my fault?

Sort me out
Bring me down
Holy ocean of eternity
Whatever dies, returns to me

In that first time that I met you
I could feel my eyelid's closing view
I'd be the first one to be your boy
If I'm the last one to hear your voice

Won't you come out and make me
Into what you're wasting
If you are so with it
Then show me your limit now

Ohhhh, Ohhhh

Is it my thoughts or
Is it my fault?
Track Name: Sick Wasted Vibe
Saw in my eyes what belongs at my side
Wears on my mind that look brings me to life
Sink past the reef where are you, I'm in need
Hang on the last sign she wants this to be

Reuse my heart
Take me apart
Know I don't mean to drone
Not to lead you on
Should I be alone
Just before you're gone

You going out
All I feel's down
Say if it's not too much
Keep it on my sleeve
Closer I'm to you
Sickness wasting me

Calm down my nerves I'm so sorry to cry
Nothing I do brings you from being fine
Last echo drowns and I'm driving away
We both made plans to be out everyday

Reuse my heart
Take me apart
Know I don't mean to drone
Not to lead you on
Should I be alone
Just before you're gone

You going out
All I feel's down
Say if it's not too much
Keep it on my sleeve
Closer I'm to you
Sickness wasting me
Track Name: Delta
Tearing through the things you left
That life, it'll be your death
Turning around, you're backstroking
Tell me, is our time closing anytime?

I know if you don't back me now
You would never back me again anyhow
Go now, to that western sea
I'll try to keep you in my sleep

Floating with an armored sail, if you
Lose catch, let me take your place on the rail

Don't think about it, it's no loss
You give yourself time to take it slow
If you considered every cost
You'd have to say to them, I don't know

I know if you don't back me now
You would never back me again anyhow
Go now, to that western ocean
I'll try to get your same devotion

Trying, trying
Trying, trying
Track Name: Sayonara
