Track Name: Vivid
You say
More than you should
I turn away
When I hear the truth

We came
So far
Now I forget
What it’s like to be warm

Decay, it’s natural
For a life lived so happily
Loss and misery
It’s only gravity

Do your time
Lose your crown
Soul fire
Burn the whole place down

Is the world burning down
Sure as it spins around
Has the world come undone
Sure as the sun

Has there ever been a time
Without war, without crime
Or is the thorn the face of life
And the rose its underside
Let me down

Look up at yourself
Save me

Is there a god above?
Why does he play with us?

When push comes to shove,
Who’ll be first to bust?

Is there love?
Or is that also a lie?

You soar
Right over my head
Let me down
Track Name: Comedown
Failed, I writhe
Hell, I tried
Close your eyes
Force a smile

What you say
Comes your way
Kneel and pray
Claim your fate

Pain mandatory
No pain, no glory
Pain is protein
Suffering is sweet

It’s getting real
Please plug me in
This was not the deal
She’s done me in
I’m falling out
Please hold me in
Faced with the void
Blood growing thin

What you’re told
The more you see
The less you know

Heed words of worth
Touch of truth tends to hurt
Pain is protein
Suffering is sweet

You’ve bit the dirt before
Better learn to love the floor

Why pick the pieces up
If the puzzle is enough

Have you heard the news
We are bound to lose

That’s the fucking point
You’re supposed to lose a tooth or two


Nothing seems to get me high
I’m stuck in low tide
So at home on the ground
Did it for the comedown
