Track Name: Aqueous (Introduction)
I thought I had a vision,
but now the thought is following me.
I knew I wouldn't listen,
but now the sound is deafening,
and we were wrong.
I thought I had a vision,
I thought we would be safe,
I thought I had a vision,
It was only a picture of this place.
And now we're forced to stay.
Track Name: Sublimation
I knew that we were splitting at the seams,
and I knew that we were splitting at the seams.
I knew that we were splitting at the seams,
but we're sitting in a cloud of smoke.
I knew that we were splitting at the seams,
and I knew that we were splitting at the seams.
I knew that we were splitting at the seams,
but we're sitting in a cloud of smoke.

I know that you're as happy as can be,
and I know that this isn't what you need.
I knew that we were swimming in the sea,
but I was swept out in the undertow.
Please know that I will swim there when you call,
and I'll hold you when you're thrown into the wall.
I know that I could stand here tower tall,
I just need a little time to grow.

I knew that we were splitting at the seams,
and I knew that we were splitting at the seams.
I knew that we were splitting at the seams,
but we're sitting in a cloud of smoke.
I knew that we were splitting at the seams,
and I knew that we were splitting at the seams.
I knew that we were splitting at the seams,
but we're sitting in a cloud of smoke.
Sublimation.
Track Name: Catacoma Coffin
Here, nothing left to fear.
No one to comfort you here,
just a puppet on a string.
You are lost.
Outside of your sphere,
nowhere to escape here.
Just a puppet on a string.
You are lost.

Moaning like a baby moans, hunting where the monster roams.
Rooms are moments, rooms are homes,sickly rotting catacombs.
Make you believe that you choose, nothing left for you to lose.
Preaching what a diary proves, chain locked just above your shoes.
Make the priest cover your eyes, darkened damp and dirty lies.
Fumes and tablets, natural high's, counting all of your goodbye's.
Adoration makes you stall, nothing left after you fall.
Stuffed and sewn up like before, spluttering and wanting more.

Here, maybe when we're in this world,
we'll pick apart at our dreams,
instead of pulling away from what it seems,
to be here.
Maybe when we're in this world,
we'll pick apart at our dreams,
instead of pulling away from what it seems,
to be here.

What have you done to me?
Track Name: Rickety Rickety Roo
I know I heard your screaming soul,
oh I saw your cancer spread.
Knowing that you spoke broken words,
between the butter and the bread.
A peaceful man of cracks and bones,
now you want to be left all alone.
And we have no choice.

Rickety Rickety Roo, what has become of you?
Rickety Rickety Roo, what has become of you?
It's left you trapped inside your bed,
alone it's ruined you.
Rickety Rickety Roo, there's nothing we can do for you.

Rickety Rickety Roo, what has become of you?
Rickety Rickety Roo, what has become of you?
It's left you trapped inside your bed,
alone it's ruined you.
Rickety Rickety Roo, there's nothing we can do for you now.
Track Name: Polyhedral
Just because I know your secrets now,
doesn't mean I'll hold you down.
But I won't let you in.
He told me that your wings had been cut through,
and that none of your dreams had come true.
But I won't let you in.
Mixing colours in your mind,
coincide, collide.

And I'm falling down a flight of stairs in my head,
"had I known this was gonna be the end."
And I'm falling down a flight of stairs in my head,
"had I known this was gonna be the end."

'Cause we'll see through this,
you're not just gonna stand there,
and pretend.
With a lung full of poison,
in your jobless, sleepless friend,
again.
Mixing colours in your mind,
you've never felt so alive.

And I'm falling down a flight of stairs in my head,
"had I known this was gonna be the end."
And I'm falling down a flight of stairs in my head,
"had I known this was gonna be the end."
Track Name: Things Fall Down
Tell me that your life is a waste,
without me there to gently caress your face.
You're a woman, independent, but alone.
You peeled back skin and took away my bones.
Tell me that your tears are not in shame,
tell me how I can make you feel this way.
If things fall down then I'll take all the blame.
I know in my mind that we are just the same.
