Track Name: Attics
When we were young
It wasn't our place
Wasn't my place
To know

When we were young
It wasn't our place
Wasn't my place
To go

Far or stone's throw
Roll your stones home
Track Name: St Marks/ The Aesthetic
Village settles in for a long night
The insult to injury starts to pile on
And all that sunshine left with such low light
Cameras up high, the plot's all but lost

But check the aesthetic
The surface is electric
Is this thing on now?
A mild anesthetic to treat ya
It'll wear off in a little while
Just focus on the pretty and shiny
Blur the image in the background
We dropped sympathetic and found
The perfect setting for some me time

New low in dumbing down
We'll reach at this rate
Got your attention with flashy headlines
Reelin' in clicks right now with this new bait
Culture is aging but ain't no fine wine

No more fake love
Don't want all of this fake love
So much fake love
We're all that we can think of

But check the aesthetic
The surface is electric
Is this thing on now?
A mild anesthetic to treat ya
It'll wear off in a little while
Just focus on the pretty and shiny
Blur the image in the background
We dropped sympathetic and found
The perfect setting for some me time

No more fake love
Don't want all of this fake love
A temporary hug
Don't want all of this fake love

No more fake love
Don't want all of this fake love
A narcissist's best drug
We're all that we can think of

But check the aesthetic
The surface is electric
Is this thing on now?
A mild anesthetic to treat ya
It'll wear off in a little while
Just focus on the pretty and shiny
Blur the image in the background
We dropped sympathetic and found
The perfect setting for some me time

But check the aesthetic
The surface is electric
Is this thing on now?
A mild anesthetic to treat ya
It'll wear off in a little while
Just focus on the pretty and shiny
Blur the image in the background
We dropped sympathetic and found
The perfect setting for some me time
Track Name: The Reins
A mind full
Of the brine
Steeped
Coasting idly
No light speed
But then I bleed
Of the rhyme
And sounds breaking
My sleep
Growing nightly

And I
Don't know why
But I just can't tap the vein
That pumps the blood
To a heart that wants to race
Yeah apathy runs wild
Till these tunes take the reins
I don't mind

Don't wanna beg, steal or borrow
Just clear this all out from my head
Cluttered woodshed
So wake me up sometime tomorrow
I'll be dreaming things up in my bed
Poppin' these meds

And I
Don't know why
But I just can't tap the vein
That pumps the blood
To a heart that wants to race
Yeah apathy runs wild
Till these tunes take the reins
I don't mind

Ok
I just checked
Getting back up to that first step
It's uhh...
I thought it had collapsed too far
But it's adequate to get back up

And I
Don't know why
But I just can't tap the vein
That pumps the blood
To a heart that wants to race
Yeah apathy runs wild
Till these tunes take the reins
I don't mind

And I
Don't know why
But I just can't tap the vein
That pumps the blood
To a heart that wants to race
Yeah apathy runs wild
Till these tunes take the reins
I don't mind
Track Name: Circles (En Route)
Another day of giving
Verge of giving in
Soon as we're born we're dying
To know truth, to know light

Pair of rose-colored glasses
A crack across the lens
Went cross-eyed
Lost sight

You're running in circles
Can't find a thing
And this city won't settle
For anything
En route to an island
With everything

16th of September
Wearing out our hearts
On sleeves stained with bitters
A closed bar
Say goodnight

And everybody's looking for the answers
Scrambling round the sphere until we find a point
A line from my old man I heard before
Ya can't be burdened with the bullshit anymore

You're running in circles
Can't find a thing
And this city won't settle
For anything
En route to an island
With everything

And everybody's looking for the answers
Scrambling round the sphere until we find a point
A line from my old man I heard before
Ya can't be burdened with the bullshit anymore

You're running in circles
Can't find a thing
And this city won't settle
For anything
Yeah you're running in circles
Can't find a thing
En route to an island
With everything
Track Name: Bare Bones
Summon up this state
Alone
Something up this way
We've never known

Summon up this state
Alone
Something up this way
We've never known

Bare bones
Ya stay
And hovering upon the ache
Bare bones
Ya stay
Just hovering upon the ache

It's triggered off and on
A ringing dial tone
From skipping rocks in a pond
To sinking like a stone

Bare bones
Ya stay
And hovering upon the ache
Bare bones
Ya stay
Just hovering upon the ache (x4)

Summon up this state
Alone
Something up this way
We've never known
