LYRICS

Crossed Wires
All tied up again
Coincidentally
No logic to the way the circuits intertwine
We cradle everything
The electricity
So we can watch it burn
We’re always gonna be

Crossed Wires, set fires, light sparks, bare liars
And I’ll be next to you
Crossed Wires, set fires, light sparks, bare liars
and I’ll be next to you, if you ask me to

This is what we are
Quintessentially
Circuitry askew, jump starting whats to come
Beating down the flame
The wayward energy
Was never gonna work
We’re always gonna be

Crossed Wires, set fires, light sparks, bare liars
And I’ll be next to you
Crossed Wires, set fires, light sparks, bare liars
And I’ll be next to you, if you ask me to

Crossed Wires, set fires, light sparks, bare liars
And I’ll be next to you
Crossed Wires, set fires, light sparks, bare liars
And I’ll be next to you, if you ask me to

 
 
Backstroke
Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing backstroke till we get there

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there

Not oblivious, but accepting
Waves are bound to break a few stones
Trust is a matter of time
Time around you
Rhythm moving, not moving
All we see is the sky, all we do is rely
On whats to come, so don’t you tell me

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing backstroke till we get there

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing backstroke

Surrounded somewhere in the in-between
Lay back my liquid silhouette
Who asks, who asks, who asks why?
Shadows in the shallow end
All we see is the sky, all we do is rely

Who asks, who asks, who asks, who asks why?

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing backstroke till we get there

Upon the water, eyes up in the air
We’re gonna act like we are unaware
We’ll be doing backstroke till we get there, we’ll be doing backstroke till we get there

 
 
How Far Will I Go
You come sneaking in as blurred outlines and vague beginnings
Just fragments and frequencies a hazy notion is stirring deep inside of me

From time to time you come around like a regular visitor of town

You never stay, I won’t be long, is what you say, you’ve got to be moving on

And when you’ve left it’s not the same here

A certain shimmer still remains

You come and go whenever you feel like it 

This much I know

And every time you’re starting something new
For me to follow through

What are you headed for today, is there a concept, anyway?

You’re telling me, just wait and see and don’t you try to understand

’cause when you’ve left it’s not the same here

A certain shimmer still remains

You come and go whenever you feel like it

This much I know

And every time you’re starting something new
 for me to follow through

I ask myself, how far will I go?

 
 
Set To Glow
The tired hands of time
Join to throw their shadow
And the borderline shimmers gold

This is yours and mine
We let nobody know
Let the light recline to regrow
We set to glow

There’s no history
Here to haunt the divide
That we dig to reap what we sow

A rhythm on repeat
That no one can describe
But we crave to be to let go
We set to glow

Words woven well
Can remind, can free minds
Words woven well
Can steal time, render blind

We lean in to be
Caught in charcoal and vines
Become scenery, begin to grow

Spreading secretly
Smudging all of the lines
Where we need to be to regrow
We set to glow

 
 
Take It On The Chin
Don’t you act like it’s gone away
I breathed it in
Words worked in and found a way
Under my skin
Hard times are ahead of me
But still you say

Take it on the chin my son
To win the hill upon which you run is a long one
And you’re gonna need strength and pride
Don’t provide them with a peek inside
Hide what you got away
There’s not a better way for a man to be a man
So take it on the chin

Words worm in while you’re unaware
Just how deep they’ve gone
Course set off to anywhere
But the pull is strong
Steer slowly and steadily
Still you’re at the helm

Take it on the chin my son
To win the hill upon which you run is a long one
And you’re gonna need strength and pride
Don’t provide them with a peek inside
Hide what you got away
There’s not a better way for a man to be a man
So take it on the chin

 
 
Plasticine
If you look for long enough its gonna look wrong
If you look for long enough its gonna look wrong

Momentary indecisiveness 

Hesitation require inquest

Microscopically we analyze

Adjust the focus inspect the lines

If you look for long enough its gonna look wrong

If you look for long enough its gonna look wrong

We are made of plasticine

So dirty clean
Imperfectly in the know

We are made of plasticine
So dirty clean
Imperfectly goes to show

Left eye closed head tilted to one side

Push and poke dissect and magnify
Calculate the in-discrepancy
Crunch the numbers, make them bleed

We are made of plasticine
So dirty clean
Imperfectly in the know
We are made of plasticine
So dirty clean
Imperfectly goes to show

If you look for long enough its gonna look wrong
If you look for long enough its gonna look wrong

We are made of plasticine

 
 
One Beautiful Mess
This is one beautiful mess that you left me with

This is one beautiful mess that i cannot resist

Emphatically able to fully disable me

This is one beautiful mess that we’re sitting inside

This is one beautiful mess that i should not abide

Disaster cascading but i’m not evading you

Chaos can be charming with your arms around me

If you let go the sound of the alarms’ll drown me

Won’t you surround me

This is one beautiful mess that you left me with

This is one beautiful mess that i cannot resist

You surround me
You surround me
You surround me
You surround me

 
 
Wiser
Words are wise but eyes are wiser

All the while they tantalise her

I’ll be waiting in the aisles and

We’ll be wiser, this time

We’ll be wiser, this time

Played the fool and payed the prices

All the rules and all the vices

Disregard all their devices

We’ll be wiser, this time

We’ll be wiser, this time

We’ll be wiser, this time
We’ll be wiser, this time

Lies’ll hide inside the covers
Multiply and try to color

Worlds that once were more than lovers

We’ll be wiser, this time
We’ll be wiser, this time

We’ll be wiser, this time (as if we never knew, or never wanted to)

We’ll be wiser, this time (as if we never knew, or never wanted to)
