Compassion 04:38
Here we go again The blame is quick to flow Eroding you Richter at nine half the time One slip away we’ll be screaming soon This tired binary just can’t stand Perspective plays to safety with a better hand But two stubborn skulls start showing the cracks Through years and years of the same attacks Something’s gotta give Someone’s gotta step up Change the way we live a little Concession Something’s gotta give Someone’s gotta step up Change the way we live Concession Pain stacks the bricks up Throwing stones and sticks up See the brown grass stretch for miles And miles and miles and miles But nobody wins when the adversary sings And you can’t stop to listen at all Something’s gotta give Someone’s gotta step up Change the way we live a little Concession Something’s gotta give Someone’s gotta step up Change the way we live Concession No matter what it is you’ve seen Compassion is queen Compassion is queen No matter what hate you’ve heard Just gotta check your own words first

Relapse 05:21
In matters of the skin Only feeling so deep Inchoate lover with a timid mind I’m Terrified of what I seek So blind to my blessings So caught up in undressing Before I really knew the truth Strung out on needing smoky sexual healing Not needing proof No, not tonight Bad butterflies, as always, cast aside Is this easy enough? Tell me am I pleasing enough I’m needing love again Ooh always knowing better than a quick touch But knowing never stopped no one No, it never won Regretful, resentful But now that I’m grown Strength in surrender Faith in a power unknown Let whatever unfold, unfold Let my guard down That so hard? Is this easy enough? Tell me am I pleasing enough I’m needing love again Ooh always knowing better than a quick touch But knowing never stopped no one No, it never won Is this easy enough? Tell me am I pleasing enough I’m needing love again Ooh always knowing better than a quick touch But knowing never stopped no one No, it never won No, knowing never stopped no one No, it never was enough Never was enough No, it never was enough

Evergreen 04:09
Midnight in my room Burns a single bulb September sadness Where’s my autumn love? The city braces As freshness departs No one to comfort Nowhere to display my heart One day soon I’ll be evergreen No matter where I am I’ll be evergreen With a love in hand As cool air invades I’ll sweat till I find Someone to share with and Challenge my mind Brown-orange emotions The falling depends Lonely’s got nothing to do With a number of friends One day soon I’ll be evergreen No matter where I am I’ll be evergreen With a love in hand Through every season, my motive is clear The leaves make their cycles as from my window I peer And I hope it’s soon And I hope it’s you Cuz I’ve been pining for you smile like needles to the tune and One day soon I’ll be evergreen No matter where I am I’ll be evergreen With a love in hand Goddamn, hurts to pull your roots free So easily defeated, only falling to see Something raw, something real, something me I won’t stop until I see I’m evergreen My evergreen

Hours 06:10
Rest your head in the center My heart is always warm For once in my life I don’t want to be alone But I still don’t know I’m learning to speak, yeah I’m finally catching on Afraid what I might find But the dark side of the truth Comes back around To guide us through To the shrouded morning light So slide up next to me dear As we open up our eyes I got hours of warmth to show you But I won’t waste your time And I want to rescue your sweet heart From the demons past In guises much like mine Just a little boy with cardboard armor Got monsters on his mind But a savior’s not gonna satisfy you, no So slide up next to me dear As we open up our eyes I got hours of warmth to show you But I won’t waste your time I saw you when you couldn’t breathe Yeah I saw you, I saw you We started so innocently Now we can’t do it, we can’t do it You saw me when I couldn’t see Yeah you saw me, you saw me Maybe love waits independently We both knew it couldn’t be Cuz you told me, you told me But are we even living if we didn’t bleed? So slide up next to me dear As we open up our eyes I got hours of warmth to show you But I won’t waste your time Your precious time, baby You give it to me so sweet Thought you’d get to know me No me
