Track Name: Symbiotic
Building a character based on the sounds of my past
Teachings were taken from teachers when I never asked for them
I still remember times I delivered
Lines that were taken from my beloved mentor

Call it a phonic love
All the sounds that control our memories, senses,
How they all are symbiotic with the past

I can tell character based on the sounds of your past
Those sounds are a litmus test for our potential to last
Strange how the smallest sounds always seem to
Trigger the memories I thought that I had lost in time

Call it a phonic love
All the sounds that control our memories, senses,
How they all are symbiotic with the past

Such a simple trust
That our idols have shown us
And we'll sing 'til the songs come back again

And I own it
Symbiotic

Call it a phonic love
All the sounds that control our memories, senses,
How they all are symbiotic with the past

Such a simple trust
That our idols have shown us
And we'll sing 'til the songs come back again
Track Name: Shao Ten
If sufferance means to close my eyes then I'll say
I won't be a part of this equation
The sum of my life is daylight and compassion
Without these two things I couldn't exist at all

They can't take away this given
Summer's tailor made for living
Please don't fade away
This won't ever end

Looking around I see nocturnal beings
Unaware that sun and solace surround them
As winter departs it leaves behind a trail of
Grayed out, sunken eyes left looking for something more
And this is what they've found

They can't take away this given
Summer's tailor made for living
Track Name: The Cuts and the Crime
Take time, scarred line
Dance with the fire
Hurt mind, small crime
Dance with the fire

Tomorrow will be the only day to stray from comfort
Hard time, straight line
Dance with the fire

Stop my mind fading (woah)
The cuts and the crime make it glow

Can't we settle for more
Than the littlest amount being offered to us
Self blame, short reign
Dance with the fire

In my mind
The better side of never is what keeps me in line
In my mind
I'm never gonna get it from the cuts and the crime
Track Name: Monuments
On the outskirts of time
Monuments twist and combine
Will I have thrown it away, or savoured anything?

Reimagine my life
The others won't understand why
Cause their happiness has stemmed from their naivety

Dreams that live life for you
An exceptional past that's not your own

All the stories I tell
And the art that I dispel
Lies here withering away
Does it mean anything?

Dreams that live life for you
An exceptional past that's not your own

Country singer and madcap winter on my mind
Track Name: Young and Unaware
Our minds wouldn't change for anything
We thought we could rule the world
We will substitute the world with hurt
We will substitute the hurt with words

The world will change from what it used to be
We won't fight it anymore

We were young and unaware
Thinking life was so unfair

The lights, how they fade from what they've been
Can't find what I'm looking for
I once understood the way things worked
Now I underestimate my worth

We were young and unaware
Thinking life was so unfair
Don't ask me to compromise
I'll tell you that my heart isn't...

Don't ask me to compromise
I'll tell you my heart isn't there
