Track Name: Rapture
Caught in the rapture of this place
Blinded by the lights so I can't stay
Are we living for heaven in our eyes?
Blinded by the light
Vision of the world

‘Cause these churches were made from ammunition
These answers retained through premonition

But you make it a falling star
And I have a broken heart

Are we living for heaven in our eyes?
We’re divided by the light
Vision of the world

But you make it a falling star
And I have a broken heart

What good is fiction now?
Track Name: Ray
Abandoned, I was your victim
I learned to love you
I was your baby now

My eyes would follow you ‘round this room, oh!
Your breathing I have syncopated, oh!

So troubled, I can’t believe you
I learned to hate you
I am leaving, now

Your guilt has driven me up the roof, oh!
These tears of mine I’ve syncopated, oh!

Heavily I have broken down
Wild nights come to cheer me now

My eyes would follow you ‘round this room, oh!
Your breathing I have syncopated, oh!

These stars below us
Conflicted with doubt
Beneath the lights come
The waves of hands clap
Track Name: Blank
My heart has been broken
It falls on the floor when I talk
The moon she has risen
She follows the route that I walk
Fingers that have been dipped in
The ink that I have written
And all the blanks been lifted
To get on.

I’m kicking the doors down
And blinded by light from the dawn
The sun he has risen
He chases the light from the rock
The brightest star I’ve ever seen
Is shining down upon my feet
And all the blanks been lifted
To get on

You who made up all the words
You who lifted up my world
You brightened up my world to get on

The brightest star I’ve ever seen
Is shining down upon my feet
And all the blanks been lifted to get on

To get on

One day
Track Name: Braided
You say ‘Lady’
I said ‘Mother me’
Rolling voices braided every day.
She was the one that I adored the most
With those bright smiles
I was the one that was frightened most
By her exotic light

Knee-deep in trouble I came to her house
That’s when she told me that the world was ready now

You say ‘Baby’
I say, ‘Come to me’
Faithful graces deepens ecstasy
He was the one that I adored the most
With those bright eyes
I was the one that was frightened most
By her exotic light

Knee-deep in trouble I came to her house
That’s when she told me that the world is ready now

Your house
Track Name: Holy
Desperately I fell on holy ground
Grinding on the fact that I have found
About you and I, about you and I

Heavenly you made my eyes go blind
Knelt down on my knees, felt I could fly
It’s you and I
It’s you and I together now

Feel your lullabies
Fainting cherub sighs
Keeping what was mine
Faithful alibis

You and I

Righteously I felt his hand on mine
Vanishing the light with blinding sight

Yes it’s you and I
It’s you and I forever now

You warned me
You warned me of this life
I can’t believe you’re mine

Feel your lullabies
Fainting cherub sighs
Keeping what was mine
Faithful alibis

You and I
Faithful alibis
Track Name: Ties
I’d be so afraid to talk
There’s no one listening
I just ran the longest walk
My heart quickening

These ties that bind us
These lies that mind us
Two circles made into one
A miracle that happened to none

My eyes had seen the wildest one
Who had been traveling
I asked him where his mind had gone
But he wasn’t listening

‘Cause my love there is one
Our heart had become

These ties that bind us
These lies that mind us
Two circles made into one
A miracle that happened to none

My love there is one
Our heart had become

The light of all of us
The end of all of us
Track Name: Collide
We loved all the places
Ones we’ve shared before
We followed all the traces
Clothes left on the floor
And if we fooled around
Falling on the floor

The sky we see is ours
Changing before our eyes
Waves of clothes were crashing in our minds

I’m waiting for the time
When I’ll see you again
This will be the place where planets die

Our hearts will collide,
And colors fill the sky.
My heart’s hungry for your eyes

Falling on the floor

And if we fooled around
Clothes left on the floor

We followed all the traces

My heart’s hungry
Our hearts will collide

Falling on the floor
