Track Name: Break Glass
Unknown future; an expansive forever
Time too obscured for an anchor
Dive down with no ropes
Naive trust in your unknown

Could you tell me where to go?
So I don't lose my mind?
Could go alone
If a piece of you is left behind
Catch me once then catch me twice
'Cause I'll be a fool for you both times

Break glass, interrupt the cold
Frozen heart in a warm chokehold
Color me from the inside out
Wake our love and warmly wrap me up

Could you tell me where to go?
So I don't lose my mind?
Could go alone
If a piece of you is left behind
Catch me once then catch me twice
'Cause I'll be a fool for you both times
Track Name: Half Disclosure
Heartbreak owed
You should know:
I've moved on now
Mumbled words
Have you heard?
Having the time of my life now
Stumbled steps
Brace my head
I'm doing better now
Wander outside
And fall behind
I've found my path now
Passed by the place
Housing our mistakes
I'm hanging up now (echoes)

Thanks for making me believe
Swear it's the last you'll hear from me (x2)
Track Name: Charade
Bit my tongue when I tried to swallow my words
Syntax caught between a rock and a hard place
Seem familiar to a girl you know
Gotta run before I give it away
Disguises urge, "come, play along"
Shed a skin that rattles in the closet
Ghosts fade from view
As long as you're distracted

I could be whoever you want
As long as no one tracks me down
I could be whoever you want
As long as no one finds me out

It's the magic of illusion
Desperate for inclusion
Theatrical seduction
An empty attraction

I could be whoever you want
As long as no one tracks me down
I could be whoever you want
As long as no one finds me out
Track Name: Dead End
Those heavy footsteps echo louder with each crest
With each stride longer than the last
Tried to drown the space in unbearable silence
So maybe you'll second guess whether I've vanished

Shred every wish I've had and toss them to the wind
To summon any emotion you haven't felt yet
Hope they rustle your bones, wake you up in the night
Whisper magic words to reach the other side

I could trace your lines
With the back of my mind
If you stumble on what I've left behind
Don't follow the mistakes they outline

Shred every wish I've had and toss them to the wind
To forget any emotion I regretfully defend
But they still rustles my bones, overtake in the night
Beautiful magic words that never aligned

I could trace your lines
With the back of my mind
If you stumble on what I've left behind
Don't follow the mistakes they outline
Track Name: 2013
Noisy defense can't hide self-doubt
You got a knee-jerk desire to toss good out
Fear of intimacy turns to projected rage
But won't change any of the choices you've made

Gave you the love good people deserve
Hope you saved some up for your lonely reserve
I've got a comfortable fire you didn't bother to stoke
Felt the cold shoulder and tried to grab the smoke

Make me the bad girl
"Crazy" and "a fool"
Maybe one day you'll realize it was all on you

Your expectations exhaust my climb
I hope you unearth another sport for your time
Don't return and expect me to be hung
I'll risk scrapes and bruises to finally drop off

It must get heavy holding that mirror
Should take a look and see what you discover
I've got a comfortable fire you didn't bother to stoke
Felt the cold the shoulder and tried to grab the smoke

Make me the bad girl
"Crazy" and "a fool"
Maybe one day you'll realize it was all on you
