Welcome Home 03:20
Everyday I stare down the barrel Spent too long picking all my battles Now the fight’s gone out of me Now the fight’s gone out of me Something in the water’s calling Getting tired of the overthinking We don’t choose what we believe We don’t choose what we believe If you stay with me, if you stay with me If you stay with me, would I be holding you back Ooh Don’t wanna be letting you down Ooh You know that I’m always around Getting high from the crumbs off your table Patronise the inconsequential Putting out my misery Putting out my misery Speculate every slight situation Just a sign of the times we live in Trying to write off history Trying to write off history If you stay with me, if you stay with me If you stay with me, would I be holding you back Ooh Don’t wanna be letting you down Ooh You know that I’m always around

Circles 03:29
I cannot explain Why things so easily break And the longer I’m here The more forever has no meaning Thought we were suffering for a cause All your blessings made it hazy Still get a kick out of making up Half excuses on the daily Who will light the way when we’re undecided Nothing’s sincere when the time is divided Been talking in circles We’re caught in the changes again I cannot explain Why things so easily break And the longer I’m here The more forever has no meaning Thought we were suffering for a cause All your blessings made it hazy Still get a kick out of making up Half excuses for a rainy day There’s nothing more that I ever could want from you I cannot explain Why things so easily break And the longer I’m here The more forever has no meaning Who will light the way when we’re undecided Nothing’s sincere when the time is divided Been talking in circles We’re caught in the changes again I cannot explain Why things so easily break And the longer I’m here The more forever has no meaning

Zero-Sum 03:31
If time was my vindicator And I gave you all the space you needed Would you be owing me a favour Should I be turning the other cheek I’ve been told you’re supposed To hate the sin and love the sinner Yet I’m starting to fear I’d misplaced all my faith at your altar I can’t do this anymore I don’t need you anymore Were we ever being honest When what we don’t like could never change You wanna settle out of weakness Fuel desire to light that bridge Well my conscience is clear But the words turn misunderstood So I try to conceal All the damage you made me go through I don’t need you anymore I don’t miss it anymore I can’t do this anymore I don’t miss it anymore It’s not giving up when it’s a losing game I don’t want it, don’t even miss it I’ll let it go if everything must change I can afford it, don’t even miss it anymore I can’t do this anymore I don’t need you anymore

Tell me something that I don’t already know Like doing time in your own mind Was I stubborn as my star sign Got me scrolling through the silence Tracing dust lines from your absence Kept me numb as a fossil Better dead than a damsel When I had nothing left left to show Tell me something that I don’t already know I don’t already know I’m left on the edge Won’t you let me in Something that I don’t already know I can do without I can do without I’m never sick of the limelight I made it click when the time’s right You never trusted the process Reflection is showing a different hindsight Everyday I’m checking all the faces All the same but stuck in different places Suited up I’m catching all the cases Dreaming that one day I feel amazing Had my one shot Took it to top All I ever did everything that I’m not What am I, couldn’t even put it in my mind Sollu da in the mirror speaking to my conscience Oh my, fit my name into the throne I gotta get it on my own I got a vision with my own eyes Thambi separate the clones Put it down gotta rep it in my zone All these questions kept me drifting Empty vessel, kite in the wind Let the words begin to sink in It’s all been said but was I listening

Least Of You 03:55
A lapse in my memory Asleep at the wheel Shattered glass on the pavement The streetlights reveal No gentle wisdom From their tortured tongues Holding out silence Till the daylight comes Blue and red come wheel away All these thoughts that never change Was the best of me the least of you Tell me what do I deserve When all I need to follow through Is a lesson yet to learn Were we caught in the static Thought I rested my case Just the rain and the radio Conclusions in vain And I’m just a hypocrite but Could you never be wrong Just how far from a stone’s throw You’d string me along All my fault all the same anyway Blame these rules that never change Was the best of me the least of you Tell me what do I deserve When all I need to follow through Is a lesson yet to learn

I’d like to think the worry never went to waste Standing at the brink of a self-fulfilling prophesy I feel it blooming in the blood Just another prodigal son You know I’ll recant my confession When it’s said and done Voices come and go Left no room for self-control Premonition Don’t let them inside Don’t let them inside Don’t let them inside Come falling apart again All I think about is… No witness No weakness Existence arbitrary So reckless between us So hush your defences Our bodies, just empty sleeves Kiss me in this coffin as we Rush on toward nothing Just wasting away Won’t you stay and decay with me We know what’s coming Voices come and go Left no room for self-control Premonition Don’t let them inside Don’t let them inside Don’t let them inside Come falling apart again All I think about is…

One by one They’ll come crashing Words warp and weft We’re still standing Here now I’m with you From here on out we’ll see it through Here now Seasons changing, changing One by one I get lost in the distance Swallowed in rue Light through a prism Lead me back to you Take me in as I am unconditional No one knows me the way like you do now Never thought I would witness a miracle till you came around Take me in as I am unconditional No one knows me the way like you do now Played my part till the end can’t compare to what I’ve already found On and on Same old story Off this carousel for something else Here now You’re with me From here on out we’re sailing Be here now The world keeps burning, burning On and on and on I get lost in the distance Swallowed in rue Light through a prism Lead me back to you Seasons changing I’ll be right waiting The world keeps burning Won’t you take me as I am and all that I have Take me in as I am unconditional No one knows me the way like you do now Never thought I would witness a miracle till you came around Take me in as I am unconditional No one knows me the way like you do now Played my part till the end can’t compare to what I’ve already found
