Track Name: Somewhere Green
I won't decay
I won't let us fade away
I'd rather end this myself
Let steady hands control my fate
So I'll go to the sea
The place where I first promised her
"No matter what happens
I'll love you forever"

I fell into the sea
Holding her close, close to me
I took her beneath the waves
A place without time
A place for us to die
Swallowing black water
We will sleep in minerals
Let the sun take our skin
Let the salt carry us away
Track Name: The Chess Club
We were shedding skin
No more lost thoughts and empty days
These dead memories didn't fade as easily
And now it's time to accept

The wind is gone, there's only sunlight now
And we were only tourists to this life

Is this what we've become?
Old roots tangled in the ground
Watching faucets open up
Hoping to get washed away

Looking for peace in the paths we've chosen
Looking for a home in a house that is broken
Looking for progress, or at least some kind of distraction
A leap of faith done in vain
Track Name: Quinceanera
Cold feet, can't sleep
It's best when we can't think
When your fears are this near
Your eyes strain because you can't face your dreams

I don't want to be ashamed of the things that I've done
From off in the distance I can't see your flaws
And I feel as though I'm getting worse
I need an empty page
I need a fast forward
Or just a way to clear my head
Track Name: saltwater
I’ll go cold tonight because I’m burning these clothes
Now I’ve trained my eyes not to focus up close

I have lost all of my fingers
Because I can’t stop playing with knives
And my faith breaks
When I can’t shake this feeling
Of being lonely when I’m not alone

In this lowered light she exposes her soul
She is desperate, she will swallow you whole

I have lost track of my fingers
Because I can’t stop counting the lies
Of these damn fakes
I just can’t hold this feeling 

I can’t breathe with my head in the sand

When did you know?
Should you even tell me?
There's a ghost here tonight
Oh how it mocks me
