Track Name: Holy
Oh, how holy are we.
Oh, how we walk on water.
Oh, how we get down stream.
Oh, how we love a martyr.

We're just sinking in.
Track Name: Lincoln
I can't bleed enough for the both of us.
You can't see past what you've been told to trust.

All the joy is staring at me, when I kiss I kiss her teeth.
I can't sleep at night because all my friends are losing their sight.

You took my heart and you made it your own.
The tired cadence repeats.
You took my heart and you made it your own beat.
The tired cadence repeats.

She sees a god I can't be.
I've got no care to hold her.
She just needs a love that I can feed.
But I've got two hands and one shoulder.
Track Name: Compass
My sin and shame converge right here.
If I could just get home I promise to keep my head clear.
I board the windows and I fold her lace,
When every other direction turns and it shows me it's best face.

Wander all around.
Forget every thing you thought you found.
Wander all around.
Forget every thing you thought you found.

Don't say you had it all.
Don't say you had it from the start.

Here I stand at your gate.
You find my eyes through my cold dead face.
You can't come in now it's too early.
I said please I'm trying so hard to be worthy.

Come you fake and you feared,
Step back from the ledge sit right here.

Can I find true north again?
Will I ever get home if I refuse to swim?

Don't say you had it all.
Don't say you had it from the start.
Don't say you had it all when your legs won't move and change their course.
Don't say you had it all when your head's in the ground just stand up tall.

Can I find true north again?
Will I ever get home if I refuse to swim?
Track Name: Sidewalker
Can we get home with these ropes around our necks?
All we are just spiders spinning webs.

I can see it now.
If I can find a love that I can't live without,
I'll paint your body right here.
I can see it, If I believe it now,
If I can find a love that I can't live without,
I'll paint your body right here.

I can see it now.
Track Name: Father
Keep your head up, the sun will rise.
Save your breathe, my lungs will keep you alive.
Hold your head up, my hands will shield your eyes.
Stay the path my sun, one day you will find.

We don't care about what you see in us.
We don't care about what you need from us.

I can see your body lying on the ground.
Can you feel it now?
I can see the color's gone and left you now.
Can you still hear that sound?

Keep your hands up, and your head will die.
Pull the door shut, don't see the light.
You strayed from the path my son, you were never alive.

Living water please come and take me home,
If there's a god above do we still die alone?
Living water please come and take me home.

I can see your body lying on the ground.
Can you feel it now?
I can see the color's gone and left you now.
Can you still hear that sound?
Track Name: River
I went down in the dark and dirt.
I came up to skip some rocks on that river.
You we're there with me weren't you?

These bones are made for structure.
These thrones are saved for lovers.
These empty arms are heavy burdens.
Just hold on until the pain ends.
The pain, it ends.

Can we speak of the highest one without our bodies changing shape?
Tell my mother how i've changed.
And all I see is what I believe is real.
Or is it real at all?
All I see is what I believe to be real.
Or is it real at all?

Leave us alone.

And all I see is what I believe is real.

Can we speak of the highest one without our bodies changing shape?
Tell my mother how i've changed.
And all I see is what I believe is real.
Or is it real at all?
All I see is what I believe to be real.
Or is it real at all?

Is it real at all?
