Track Name: The Truth & The Knife
How you twist it
The truth and the knife in my back
How you Turn, How quick you attack
This time I'm not coming back

I believed you
And all of the lies that you told
What kind of man is so cold?
I don't know you at all

I needed you
But you fed me to the wolves

I curse myself for how little I sold my soul
Grateful for the crumbs you threw
As I treaded on thin ice
What a fool I've been
Cowering in the corner
As you bear your teeth
As you bear your teeth

I needed you
But you fed me to the wolves

Protect me, love me, those were my pleas
Why'd they cause you such unease?
You blame me as you lash out
You blame me as you lash out

But I listened when you called, I listened when you called
I listened when you called coz I wanted to believe

How you twist it
The truth and the knife in my back
How you turn, how quick you attack
Track Name: Dirt
Asked you a question
And it made me think in spirals
While you did not respond

Suddenly so clear
There was only one answer
I was ready to receive

Dirt
Wasn't what I was looking for
Or... was that why I came to you?

Where's my medication?
Coz I'm finding this confusing
Feeling weak in the knees
But I'm asking another...
This is self abuse, it's torture
Oh why do I ask?

Dirt
Wasn't what I was looking for
Or... was that why I came to you?
Dirt
Wasn't what I was looking for
Or... was that why I came to you?

I've been planting seeds of doubt
To disprove the seeds of hope
Curiosity is killing me, oh why do I ask?

Dirt
Wasn't what I was looking for
Or... was that why I came to you?
Dirt
Wasn't what I was looking for
Or... was that why I came to you?
Dirt
Wasn't what I was looking for
Or... was that why I came to you?
Dirt
Wasn't what I was looking for
Or... was that why I came to you?
Track Name: Dust
Lying in these depths we barely breathe
Waiting for the earth to fall
We feel our heart stop

Lying in this hole we barely blink
Waiting for the funeral
We feel our heart stop

Lying in a grave we grieve ourselves
Waiting for the headstone
We feel empty

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
We feel our heart stop
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
We feel our heart stop
Track Name: Smile
Cut a smile into my face
This is my mask, my blood
I don't smile today
Look what you have done

And everybody laughs, everybody laughs

Rip a smile from ear to ear
This distraction, my scar
I don't smile today
Look what you have done
Track Name: Chrysalis
Stop the clock, stop my pendulum heart
Glow bright at the trigger
Turn white, grow bigger
I am building an incubator

Chrysalis

Buried in the dirt and darkness
Turning the attention to the light

Chrysalis

Stop the clock, stop the clock
I am building an incubator

Wind forward, wind my fortified heart
Glow bright at the trigger
Cut back, grew bigger
I am leaving my incubator

Chrysalis
Track Name: Butterflies
When I kiss him I can feel him melting
When I kiss him I can feel myself dissolve
When the moon shines he is buzzing softly
At the flickering fire, he is burning with me

I love love, oh I do love love
I love love oh I do love love

When I touch him I can feel the earth breathe
When I touch him I can feel him falling in
When the butterflies are flying inside
At the treehouse he is building with me

I love love, but it's in my head
I love love, but it's in my head

When he hurts me a piece of me dies
When he hurts me, he won't kiss it better
When the butterflies are dying inside and I'm asking
"What did I do"?

I love love, but I don't like this
I love love but I don't like this
I love love but I don't like this

(flying away, floating away, flying away, floating away)
Track Name: Quietly
Poured myself into your darkened room
I came with bruises, scratches and burns
And I gazed upon your shoulders
I gazed upon your shoulders

Skin on skin
Quietly you took me in

Poured my soul into your darkened gaze
In your arms I felt it start
And falling softly, you stopped my heart

Skin on skin,
Quietly you took me in

Dreamed a thousand dreams of you
In the morning I was calm
As if you weeded out the rest
As we slept

Skin on skin,
Quietly you took me in
Track Name: Secret Roots
You find your secret routes into what's mine
Creep, creep, creeping like a vine
Between my chest and his you seek to grow
But we're intwined by secret roots below

You underestimated
Our infinite heights
You traitor

You underestimated
Invinsible light
You traitor

Within the ink our shoots began to show
Telling a story that you'll never know
Open my chest and wait for his kiss
Fall on my heart and answer my wish

You underestimated
Our infinite heights
You traitor

You underestimated
Invinsible light
You traitor

Slice up the fruit
Remove the leaves
Cut out the heart
Destroy the seed
So I remove the path you are on

You underestimated
Our infinite heights
You traitor

You underestimated
Invinsible light
You traitor
Track Name: The Climber
Sick to my stomach I fell through
Crippled by fear that it wouldn't come true
It chills me, distills me, my hope is frought
Triggered by a time I had forgot

Lost in a dream I climbed up so high
I climbed so high that I forgot why
To show you, to prove to you that I can climb
To show you that I am fine

I feel my heart inside my mouth
I taste its hunger, hear it beat so loud
It thrills me, it kills me, but I must chew
Until these feelings are through

It's ok
It's ok

I see my prize up ahead
I hold out my hand, but it's not time yet
It turns me, it burns me, keeps me alive
This is my reason to strive

It's ok
It's ok
Track Name: Myriad
You dropped doubt into the hole
Where you buried me
Still I tasted touches of warmth
I grew into a crystal with a myriad of leaves
Intricate like wild green ferns

Formed by ice, by your cold breath
Falling on the warmth of the world
Delicate, clean bright prisms of light
Tempted me to fully uncurl

Now I grow my own
Everything I need
Now I grow my own
Everything I need

I became in the cold
I became in the cold
I am all of the wonder you will never seek

Now I grow my own
Everything I need
Now I grow my own
Everything I need

I became in the cold
I became in the cold

Now I grow my own
Everything I need
Now I grow my own
Everything I need
Track Name: Meadow of Weeds
I grow in my mind a meadow of weeds
I grow in my mind a meadow of weeds
I blow wishes
(from dandelion seeds) - lyric cut

Converting all the dirt, all the water, all the hurt
Into oxygen, oxygen
I blow wishes
