Track Name: Flies
Even if I had a chance to explain
I knew you'd never leave here the same
All drastic actions are left to rest
Words spoken until they do not make sense

This is not to enrage you, it is to stifle your love
You will not hear what you want
And how can I know where to return
There is no comfort in your call

Where did you learn how to act in this way
All of your love is so recklessly, recklessly placed

We will never save each other
Your shadows are not mine
Letting it take over your mind
All your thoughts will bend and bleed

Where did you learn how to act in this way
All of your love is so recklesly, recklessly placed
Track Name: Lancaster
I hope you regret your words when you sleep
Promises are something you could never keep
And now the sea will never guide you back to me

Your limbs are overgrown with weeds
My only wish is to be buried by machines
When winter turns to spring it'll find me with another name

For your love
And it won't be for your sake

I watch you shiver
But I've been cold for years
The shadows on your frame
Will not excuse you from the pain you caused for years
Oh Lancaster
Oh childish boredom
What will you not say to save you from facing the pain of the truth

Your love is a darkness
