Track Name: The Zugzwang Détente
Tree
You're casting a shadow
I'm trying to let go
There's beauty held in your lie

There's no time
To fight
I only see you when you hide

There's a war outside but can you take a breath?
It's warm outside, in here I'm freezing to death

Your wishes
Are like cheap whores
Never the ones that you adore

No, no, no

There's a war outside but can you take a breath?
It's warm outside, in here I'm freezing to death

There's a war outside but can you take a breath?
It's warm outside, in here I'm freezing to death
Track Name: Cry Witch
The warmth held me close, but maybe warmth was all it was
Something that lasted seconds, with no lines to be crossed
And I heard those comforting words, that meant everything
But nothing is ever promised

The rain cascades down
The wind screams your name
And you open your eyes to the blindness of rage
I can't help you now
You know it's too late
And I'd wait forever, if I thought you would change

That sickly sweet taste of a love you had to replace
The memory still remains like mirrors on the walls of this maze
Fighting down this feeling that never satisfies
I'm not saying I'll stop at nothing, but it's so easy to believe your lies

The rain cascades down
The wind screams your name
And you open your eyes to the blindness of rage
I can't help you now
You know it's too late
And I'd wait forever, if I thought you would change

I don't think we're going to die tonight
Nothing's a nightmare and you sleep so restlessly
How high did she fly?
How high?
Before she collapsed in your hands
And broke before your eyes
No, I don't think we're going to die tonight
Nothing's a nightmare, and you sleep so restlessly
But looking at her broken wings
She let go of everything
And now she's lost control
Track Name: Get Home Safe
Be safe, no matter where you fall down
Too late, but you can still repair
Please come around

These walls that contain you can't protect you
These lights blind you, you're carried away
Thoughts pounding around my brain
But a worthless answer's always the same

And it's strange
The way our memories change
Looking back at something
It's not the same
Drifting out
Nobody hears your shout
Reaching out for someone
You couldn't blame

Miles away from finding you in a place you'd call home
This house is colder, the streets are dark
I feel so alone

And it's strange
The way our memories change
Looking back at something
It's not the same
Drifting out
Nobody hears your shout
Reaching out for someone
You couldn't blame

And it's strange
The way our memories change
Looking back at something
It's not the same
Drifting out
Nobody hears your shout
Reaching out for someone
You couldn't blame

Be safe, no matter where you fall down
