Track Name: Welcome Home
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
Track Name: Circles
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
Track Name: Zero-Sum
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
Track Name: Better Dead Than A Damsel (ft. Fariz Jabba & Yung Raja)
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
Track Name: Least Of You
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
Track Name: Premonition (ft. Weish)
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…
Track Name: Unconditional
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
