Track Name: Collapsing
I feel it all collapsing
I can see it's going to fall
If I can't hold up my four walls
How can I hold up yours

I feel it all collapsing
I can see it's going to fall
If this has taken all of me
You can't take any more

I am the storm
Track Name: The City's Heart
So should we start
From the city's heart
And just walk so far
Until the sky goes dark

We'll disagree
And you'll get sick of me
And that might sound harsh
But I talk too much

The lines that guide
On black in white
Lead us to find
The book we have to write

These scenes persist
To breathe a sigh of bliss
As my eyes grow wide
And satisfied

You'll kick and scream
And say something obscene
And that might sound rough
But I won't shut up
Track Name: Walk Away
A fever to the damaged
A lesson from the brave
Nothing comes from nothing
Our mission is all the same

But you're that one who'll always
Take the easy way
But when the work is required
You just walk away

Being best rewarded
Can take a swim upstream
If you wait to be supported
Then don't expect supreme

But you're the one who's always
The first to complain
But when the chance is given
You just walk away

With nothing to say
Track Name: Borderline
Don't cross the borderline
We're yet to see the stars align
Another try in this place
Before we try a change of pace

Let's turn the car around
Our dreams were left in the last town
Unrealised and left to be
Unachieved by you or me

But don't you ever feel
Like none of this is real
When nothing changes anything
And everything is the same

Grass on the other side
It looks the same when it has died
Another town another place
Another cloud on other days

But there's a hand pushing me out of here
Taking the weight from off my back I feel
But there's a voice inside my head I hear
Don't cross the borderline

The borderline
Track Name: Salvation
Behind the walls I'm hidden
If I'm quiet I can listen
To all my thoughts because there's
So much left in me

But if you could see
The place I'm meant to be
And if you could know
The way I'm meant to go

Beneath the skin they're hidden
If you're quiet you might hear them
Feed off my bones until there's
No more left in me

If the things you see
Could save a part in me
And the things you know
Could pave the way to go

There'd be so much left in me
