about

this (blank) era. Accepting what's been done in the past and learning to let go.

Subtle transformations occur in one's life, sometimes more drastically than others, but they happen nonetheless. The thing is, is that these "eras" in your life don't happen one by one, but rather overlap each other like a collage of memorable moments and epiphanies. So you can never really name one vivid "era" that you're in. They have many names. They are in that sense, nameless. Ever-changing, ever-transformative. It may be fun to name them in the moment. So let that blank space be whatever you'd like to express it as in this moment. But the freedom to change it is always there. Learn to love all the different era's you've experienced thus far.

Track Name: Losing Myself
Was I tempted to obey
the trigger force inside my brain
it told me
oh

I know what you're thinking of
when you see her moving just like that
this feeling that I try to keep

but something
holds me back into another dark space
and I wish just once
I wish just once

I could talk myself out of this mess
and just free up my head

we could talk for hours
say I'm your friend
but I wish just once
wish just once yea

I knew
how to say that
I want you instead

I
noticed you
(pulling)
close to me
(now do you want it)
a paradise
(it's waiting)
so take a bet on me
cuz Im falling x2

down
down
I'm falling
down
down
do you hear me now
now
because I'm falling
down
down

I won't say one thing no
not yet

we'll loosen up the ends
you may feel like you're in doubt
about the way things'll change

but me I know where we'll go
don't you worry
we can take it real slow

can't you see we're alive
couldn't even ask for
better timing

with the time it takes
for us to
shake off
these bad thoughts

trying to have this taste I once had
what was it

made me feel the warmth on my bed
you were on it

Chorus

I am losing myself for you
won't let these words in me
take envy
Track Name: Silent Need
how long will it take
to make my escape
cause I've
been working to lose
time

me I'm the one
to take on his own
choices that are owed
but i'll pay them no mind
this time

I think it's you
i think its you
these changes are right
to fall in pieces
sink I'll sink
or swim
these lungs grow so tight

and we are we to be
losing our minds
walking blinded
high and mighty place
a high and mighty place you are

were you there
were you listening
to the silent need
a need

till you had
a single part of me
temporary peace
can't leave

when you know that
when you know that
the end

won't be easy
won't be easy
to mend

this sanctuary
faith provided me
no one's to know
of what you had left here
keeps me asking questions

so many thoughts
i've been
holding back
while the nights grow long
and the earth moves side to side

im pulled towards
the unchanging waves
the unchanging waves
take me in
to your side

Chorus

i'll keep my head down till you get near
forgive what I have done to stay here
and in the fall
winds overtake it all
back into the fall
I pray
Track Name: Two of Us
I looked your way
you noticed me
and I knew
that once we share
this company
we're in it for good
so careless with
my words you see
why
they don't know
this side of me
it's hard to live by
but you know my games
never doubt that I want you here just the same
ah
can't look away
every motion made by her
I wanna trace
ah
the space we need
to fully understand
each other's energies
ah
not much to gain
from holding back these thoughts of you
I can't erase
no
this what you feel
only two of us
only two us
ain't nobody else I see
focus what you want
just give it some trust
I'll give you everything you need
this what you feel
only two of us
only two us
ain't nobody else but me
focus what you want
just give it some trust
I'll give you everything you need
a temple we made
it's safe now
my mind can slip away
into a deeper state how
do your words
keep me so tame
in a way
I always knew
that one of these days
i'd be close to you
chasing in
your shadow's grace
from all of these lights
and we on
towers that take on horizons
covers the sun onto us
names of our past selves forgotten
every single hour with you
sublimity, I'm on my knees
no one told me what this is
never knew that I had missed
alone to us
I wake
to see
you here
with me
higher
are we
still
moving x2
Track Name: Indoors
if I had my way
everything would change
cause we aren't the same

youth energy is fleeting
when it calls
I'll stay
(please do)

it's all become one place
and I've always wanted more
(its true)

i'll find my way
even if it kills me
I'll chase it
(to darkness)

I never saw what they
could see
I always found it lonesome
the colours that are known
to me
hides away
subsides this way
hides away
indoors

with many faces I've had
silhouettes, silhouettes
silhouettes they stay

but my real ego,
makes empty words alive
enough to feel like I belong

I never saw what they
could see
I always found it lonesome
ya
the colours that are known
to me
hides away
subsides this way
hides away
indoors

I never saw what they
could see
I always found it lonesome
ya
the colours that are known
to me
always change
but they came
from nowhere
Track Name: Know You
let go from my hold
don't you wanna come back later
I wanna see you late than never

our time's the only time when
we don't need no explanation
for the foolish misbehavings

but there's one thing nice
one thing, I'll compromise
and i'll be your all
for your single, soul

won't ask twice, won't ask
so roll the dice
shouldn't be hard
shouldn't be

cause i know

one look
is all
I
need to
know you

they don't
have this
hold
like I have
on you

if heaven is above
are we really down below

we ain't here no more

and I said
she's back
into my head
every single word she said
came to me later
when I was trying to stay sober

off again
will she be my friend
but every time I see her now
i remember
all the things
we set up

Chorus x2

can't wait up
I'll stay up
all night to
be with you
till my minds on
the one thing
that makes me wanna try

so tell me
what I need
to let you
know I see
this one thing that
makes you
the shelter I make mine x2
