Track Name: Improvise
IMPROVISE

This may in fact impose your mind
A thought to merely give some sight
There will always be a wrong place and time.

Improvise to get by
Improvise to defy

Two very different breeds
Radiate to rid the bitter taste
Never know where things could lead

The unknown side will imply
What I thought I never might

Improvise to get by
Improvise to defy
Track Name: Hardwired
HARDWIRED

Never been one to abide
Not bound by dependent time
Suppose you don’t understand
What lies beneath my skin

Freely allows me to breathe
Found a space away from the chase
I guess you don’t understand
Please don't pull me in

I’m an outlier
Hardwired
Outlier
Hardwired

Never been one to abide
Not joined by the other side
Please don't try to pretend
You’ll be there without a plan

Everyone moves to a beat
Crowded minds out of sight
No one really understands

I’m an outlier
Hardwired
Outlier
Hardwired
Track Name: Tungsten
TUNGSTEN

An Initial basic fundamental mark
Leads to judgements of sorts
Bring this Tungsten light to dark
Help me please, read those thoughts

A clear circumstance behind a certain chance
Cause by tethers been caught
Find the wager with some plans
Make the call and there’s the door

Please change my mind
In due time
Change my mind
In due time

To be identical yet not all the same
Hide mistakes in the bait
Show your tungsten life for game
Just confide or hesitate

Please change my mind
In due time
Change my mind
In due time

Change my mind
In due time
Change my mind
In due time
Change my mind
In due time
Change my mind
In due time
Track Name: Talk Free
TALK FREE

I’m awake in the early morning light
Before the usual time
Ahead of sight

Stay here, sit beside me my dear
It’s the same old year
It’s okay things aren't clear

Talk free like the early morning breeze
Soft against my cheek
This could last all week

Talk free, Talk free
Working with words
Lets get hurt

In a glance there remains a longing state
Hands trace my hair
The foreword before the dare

Beneath the safety of these clouds
There’s not a single sound
This place is so profound…
For me now

Don’t turn from me now
Track Name: Expose to Weather
Expose to Weather

In this colliding motion
In footfall
Volunteer for vocation
Expose to weather

No need to be halfhearted
Pace yourself
Ad-lib your way to start it
Middle, centre, top to bottom

Follow the urge to wander
Find a piece of something
Assess the stakes beyond her
Looking at our feet
Assembling to rhythm
Fixating on defeats

Consider the direction
To escape
Look back to see progression
Stop for a moment

Bring to light your attachment
Interview
Reserve your better judgement 
Middle, centre, top to bottom

Follow the urge to wander
Find a piece of something
Assess the stakes beyond her
Looking at our feet
Assembling to rhythm
Fixating on defeats

Fixating on defeats
Track Name: As a King
AS A KING

As a king there’s no suspect for reject
And no one would ever expect a thing
With a promise to, always to protect
I ask you to think what that really means

Honestly you have no need for your sword
You’re always breaking your own laws

As a king you're either blade or a spade
And the lowly don't excuse a thing
Keep in mind the truth
The truth you evade
As it hides behind the veil of your fame

Honestly you have no need for your sword
You’re always breaking your own laws

Breaking yours
Honestly
Honestly
Track Name: Standing Static
STANDING STATIC

Subconscious set it’s sight to deny
Conversing, blame will cause cause you to try
Pull together
Like curtains hiding your mind

How could it be so automatic
Dawn on me we were standing static

It’s evident, cant keep wasting time
Don’t hesitate to make a change
Move together
Like the waves crashing in lines

Set your sights
Set them high
To deny

How could it be so automatic
Dawn on me we were standing static
Track Name: Slow Dance
SLOW DANCE

I’m a little bit scared
Constantly falling for familiarity
Far too many possibilities
much prefer a slow dance

Hands loosen their grip
Hold tighter, hold tighter
Always one step ahead
Come closer, come closer
Hands loosen their grip
Hold tighter, hold tighter
Always one step ahead
Come closer, come closer

I’m just tryna be fair
Always looking for the similarities
Possibly you're a little bit scared
Always looking for apologies
There’s always the possibility
You’d prefer a slow dance

Hands loosen their grip
Hold tighter, hold tighter
Always one step ahead
Come closer, come closer
Hands loosen their grip
Hold tighter, hold tighter
Always one step ahead
Come closer, come closer

Hold tighter
Come closer
Hold tighter
Come closer

We’re a little bit scared
Constantly falling for familiarity
Far too many possibilities
much prefer a slow dance
Track Name: Throw Me in the Deep End
THROW ME IN THE DEEP END

Don’t you know to take a calm stride
Descent and go with a corrupt disguise

Got no time for repeats
C’mon
Got no time for repeats
C’mon
Throw me in the deep end

I have to rise up just for now
Breathe in, breathe out
I’ll wait for you to surface now
Swim up, Swim down

Don’t you know you’re free to capsize
Stay or go why not try to reprise

Got no time for repeats
C’mon
Got no time for repeats
C’mon
Throw me in the deep end

I have to rise up just for now
Breathe in, breathe out
I’ll wait for you to surface now
Swim up, Swim down

Throw me in the deep end
Throw me in the deep end
Throw me in the deep end
Track Name: Coexist
COEXIST

In a remote, indistinct reverie
Blinded by what it is you see
Chew down the ache find the clarity
Grasp the same finite
And it will always leave

Now we don't coexist
No more what if, should have, could of beens
Gotta get a grip on this
Shaken, mistaken, illusions

Lost in mistakes our kind keep making
Tolerate it time will be begging
Drive past the place where you were heading
Grasp the blame inside
And watch it start to bleed

Now we don't coexist
No more what if, should have, could of beens
Gotta get a grip on this
Shaken, mistaken, illusions

Oh, just let go
Oh, let it go
Oh, let me go
Oh, it’s gone now
Track Name: Mild Blood
MILD BLOOD

Just a phrase keeping you past the threshold this evening
Don’t overthink begin to move and start sailing

It woke me up with a dotted line to sign
What conditions?

Pardon the misguided notion of this pleading scene
See to the terms fade into obscurity

Sudden movements failing to waste your time
Give Permission

Send a message from a different time
For Revision

Call on courtesy, a truce of winnings
Overhead, overlook skylights shading your mind
Oppose with mild blood
Borrow the borders between

It’s our mild blood
Mild blood
It’s our mild blood
Mild blood

Up to par in a humble probability
Disperse from mend, tear apart to see the blurred screen

Hand down state lines with a simple spot in mind
Your position

Withhold writing
Avoid Submission

Call on courtesy, a truce of winnings
Overhead, overlook skylights shading your mind
Oppose with mild blood
Borrow the borders between

It’s our mild blood
Mild blood
It’s our mild blood
Mild blood

Call on courtesy, a truce of winnings
Overhead, overlook skylights shading your mind
Oppose with mild blood
Borrow the borders between

It’s our mild blood
Mild blood
It’s our mild blood
Mild blood
It’s our mild blood
Mild blood
It’s our mild blood
Mild blood
Track Name: Month or a Day
MONTH OR A DAY

Whether it’s been a month or a day
Bring the record to record
You make life so easy that way

Tape it all down for keepsake
Gratify the effect
Of each and every word at stake

Pair put together with no median
Farewell to fidelity
Pressing left and east
Motley of youth pushed to oblivion
Mixed with serenity pushing pain to cease

The past always seems to necessitate
Call to mind to put away
A path to another gate

To sit and wait and somehow evade
Holding back to retain
Don’t look at through decades

Pair put together with no median
Farewell to fidelity
Pressing left and east
Motley of youth pushed to oblivion
Mixed with serenity pushing pain to cease

Be wary, of open doors
Be wary, for they close

Whether it’s been a month or a day
Bring the record to record
You make life so easy that way
