Track Name: I Don't Blame You
Stay graceful were her words of advice
as sun fell like uncaged rain
But syllables don't often fade
like pen and paper ravings

Unknown and cloned is always the case
Gray strikes on blackened matches
Create the cause that no one can fight
Young love won't make it past this

I don't blame you
I don't blame you
I'm honest, I promise

Compete for space and the image of God
was shown through darkened filters
There must be some deeper meaning to it
if we look closely enough

I'll sit alone and I'll watch as you walk
You're not as bright as you seem
Only so many arrows can mark
The place where all real truth sleeps

I don't blame you
I don't blame you
I'm honest, I promise
Track Name: Say I Am You
All synthetic hope is gone
Here it goes, the last song we ever sung
It's opened the wound
Our starry eyes and broken mood

Say how close I am to you
Oh hello, these days are sicker than we've known
Create and procure
The story's here, there's nothing to prove

Say I am you

Oh my heart the road is lost
Empty sky, as far as it goes
Fold up in yourself
Warpaint and you've gone electric

Knees like knobs and feet like rocks
Your eyes are doors and I'm locked out
Don't turn on me now
Your neon sign's been on for too long

Say I am you
