Track Name: Time Crawling Back
Act like you know me
And fade away
Survive the party
Where the walls attack the floors
Our ghosts inhabit doors
Tell them you saw me
Exposed

Your eyes raised
to the ceiling
our eyes meet as time crawls back

Act like you know me
And fade away
Tell them you saw me
Tell them that you saw my living end
Tell them you saw me

Enjoy the ending as we begin
Survive the party
Where the walls attack the floors
Our ghosts inhabit doors
Tell them you saw me
Exposed

Your eyes raised
To the ceiling
Our eyes meet as time crawls back

Act like you know me
And fade away
Tell them you saw me
Tell them that you saw my living end
tell them you saw me
standing by my grave

I am energy
I am living light
I bleed it out
Until all is night

I stack books
Turn every picture down
So you don't see me
Exposed
Track Name: Survival Instincts
Survival Instincts

You were crawling
now you're clawing through
a frozen cloud between me and you
Take a breath and raise the mirror
on a coward's crime that can't define you
The Phoenix wings
its rainbow flames
the light that burns their eyes and forces them to see

[Chorus]
A cockroach survives apocalyptic dream
the most beautiful thing I think I have ever seen
You will survive
the days that try to scratch your name into the mud
in your own blood

You'll speak
and they'll grow weak
because you still breathe

You were crawling
now you’re clawing through
a frozen cloud between me and you
Take a breath and raise the mirror
on a coward’s crime that can't define you

[Chorus]

The coelacanth
the horseshoe crab
the tortoise, the sturgeon sing your name
You will survive
Track Name: Outward Urge
The flies are back
Drawn out by your sweat
A crown of severed hands, rises in a land that has no swarms
I feel old and tired like everything you've touched.
You washed their hands with light from your ever burning eyes

I found the path and burned it
I burned the path
I set the traps
when you turned back from the pyre with light in your eyes

Alive in a cocoon
The larva feels the urge to break the skin
Flesh moves and eyes close
A child hears a sound
there's something underground

I found the path and burned it
I burned the path
I set the traps

When you turned back from the pyre with light in your golden eyes
Your golden eyes
You washed their hands with the light from your golden eyes
