Shakencutt 03:43
Sure save, spun tight Luck played the answers right The last time, next day This same end is beginning again Walking underwater Breathing through a straw The has hours and hours and this time frame is slowing me down to a crawl They're just thoughts Nothing's planned We'll be gone like began We'll be gone in spite of it all
One of us doesn't fit This surely is an accident Turn around and shut 'em out This farce of counterparts is spreading disbelief This doubt through word of mouth could shatter permanently And the title goes to... "They should adjust" I know they should, but honestly, how could you overlook the gravity Tied tight in hindsight, this stitch is permanently sewn And the title goes to...
Planemo (free) 04:21
Give a little sign for the unrest Or bleed your heart in protest I'm walking on this fence like a tightrope Where is the land? I'll make my approach, Find the ground, look around, follow the fault line Spent enough time faking through the motions Speaking only our convenient opinions, we'll wait for a split second understanding In a split second I'll be landing I'll make my approach, Eyes down to the ground, follow the fault line Please adjust everything around to fall in place for now That might just remind us how we should see it
"Don't paint me out so cynical when you are only fooling yourself, and it's not so difficult..." With a smile as we go Perch with your head hanging down Safe as a passenger up in the audience All this comes crashing around us Safe in the audience rows Perch with your head hanging down Safe as a passenger, you're pleading the same case Kicking and clawing we drown Wagering on our worst, we all leave the same way Isn't it so typical? Safe in the audience rows
We beg to pay for our highs without lows Laughing loud with each other Crying Alone Breathe soft, it’s enough to vibrate It’s just loud enough to locate (in slow and steady time, we all know our mistakes define) And it’s time that I admit - like always, it hurts less over time I imagine that the perfectly placed reminders just won’t let us forget Breathe soft, it's enough to vibrate In slow and steady time, we all know it's loud enough to locate Tell me when I arrive
Empty Hand 03:39
Caught a good idea that wasn't mine I took an empty hand and some honest work These roots hold soil, but above it all It's a sick, stop-motion ...laughing as we go Is this should shake, we'd fall down the center of it all It's a certain reaction Try to roll with the punches anyway Keep my conscience in line Steady, focused on the prize It's a perfect distraction Try to roll with the punches
