Track Name: Pedestal
Some people have got their theories
That the heart is supposed to be a house for the soul
Well I’ve got my fair share of queries
When will my love find its way back home?

Philosophy keeps me going round in circles
Just like how I chase you like I chase my tail
The world ain’t gonna stop spinning ‘cos I ain’t got you
How did you get to the top of the hill?

So come on down!
Standing on that pedestal babe
Don’t you wanna get together?
So come on down!

Swinging like a pendulum hey
Gotta let me know where this is going sooner or later

I found myself losing the art of believing
Some place somewhere down along the line
You came and went and left me here so alone
But somehow I’ve never felt so alive

Here I am now messy in my misery
The way you drop me like a bomb then you come hit me so hard with your cold technique
I often wonder how you get to play with gravity
But don’t you get it babe
All I really want to know is what you really need

So come on down!
Standing on that pedestal babe
Don’t you wanna get together?
So come on down!

Swinging like a pendulum hey
Gotta let me know where this is going sooner or later
Track Name: There Is No Love
Throwing smoke
Cast the first stone
I stayed up
While you left home

How do I know
If this is worth keeping
Should I measure the tears we’ve cried
Against the arc of conversation?

One last kiss
One more cigarette
Abandon me
A dead soldier in your bed

Where did you go
Were you shown some revelation?
Should I remember the scene of the crime
Or lose it in translation?

You were my everything/I tell myself that this is just a bad dream

There is no love
No future in nostalgia
No blessing in brokenness
Only feelings to be guilty of
But I'm waiting for someone to prove me wrong

Closing wounds
Things we dispose
I’ll steal your books
You’ll bury my clothes

When did we end up
Playing in the dark?
Were we really tired of stalling
Or just afraid of false starts?

Revel in
This post-apocalypse
Undo the seams
Of two hearts' eclipse

You were my everything/I tell myself that this is just a bad dream

There is no love
No future in nostalgia
No blessing in brokenness
Only feelings to be guilty of
But I'm waiting for someone to prove me wrong
Track Name: What Can I Do
I beg time to give me a window
A sliver of your smile, a slice of your life
But what can I do
With this love of mine?

Why do I feel like I could hold you
Till the sun wears off her shine
Till the oceans stop turning their tide

You left me looking for love

And what can I do
With this weight crushing down on me
How can I breathe
When infatuation is a curse I choose to keep
How do you keep me here wondering
If there's already a body lying beside you in your bed?
How do you keep me from sleeping
Thinking about all the things unsaid?

You left me looking for love

I can see you smiling back at me
I know it don't mean a thing
Why d'you keep me hanging by your string?
I can see you smiling back at me
I know it don't mean a thing
Why d'you keep me hanging by your string?

You left me looking for love
Track Name: Rust
Love
You’re just a war
You shoot me down
Like the morning star

Girl
Just take your time
I wait for no one else
Until you’re mine

Oh
Is it too late?
To tear your walls down
And lay this weight

You fall
Into my arms
Into this pit of love
Into my heart

But you crawl
Back into his bed
His bones his body
His mind his head

Wait
Before you go
I cannot love you
If I don’t know

True
We know the facts
Time is running and
We can’t look back

Stop
Before we cross
Our minds are flooded now
And our lives turn to rust

Forgiveness
Is by grace
But I’m not God
So why should I stay?


But you wait
For a while
Even though I know
He wants to bear your child

But you crawl
Back into his bed
His bones his moaning
His mouth his head

Wait
Before you go
I cannot love you
If I don’t know

I know you lie
I know you cry
But you should know

I’ll be here
I’ll be waiting
I’ll be praying

Till you’re gone, gone, gone
Till you’re gone, gone, gone
Till you’re gone, gone, gone
Till you’re gone, gone, gone
