Track Name: Memori
Are you looking for a way to feel again?
You can’t make your mind dissolve
That is how your life is
There is somewhere else—a world that calls you home
Come, let go
Don’t let the world just pass you by
Live for the waiting world

Electrify a lost memory
You’ll see the colors in the sky
You’ll see the life without a night
We’re pouring out the glory

Are we awake or are we still dreaming?
Have you ever gleamed inside of a cube?
That is surreal

You can weigh all the reasons and destroy all your logic
But you’ll never be alone

Electrify a lost memory
We’ll see the colors in the sky
We’ll see the life without a night
Start pouring out the glory
Track Name: Postcards
You know you’re feeling a little bit sideways
You know you’re feeling alone inside
O to be free,
To dive off somewhere high,
And to see your face when I come up to breathe

I can’t stand being here anymore
I dream of it stopping
They’re all addicted to the sound of their voice
I need some quiet
I wish I knew how to be like you—how you are, who you are, who you are
But even all my darkest thoughts won’t ever kill me

And you are not like any of the other ones
You are the waves that I am swimming in to
You lift me up across the magnetic ground
And you make me holy inside

Today I looked at all them outside like breathing is easy
And for a moment I caught myself pretending I was with them
But after all that they have done to me—pushed me down on the ground, on the ground
I still find myself in all of them and hurt when they are hurting

You are making me holy
And you are making me holy
Track Name: Heart of Hearts
Bleed out all the sunlight
Bleed out all the sunlight
So I can fall into the dark
So I can be invincible
But I can't make my little heart beat any slower
The way you move inside my brain makes me go under

Be alive
Open up your eyes
All these days remind me the times I can feel you the most I’m alone
You've no idea how the spirit moves
Cause life was a dark dream of wondering how I could feel so lost
Hold the light for me again cause I can feel like the rain coming up and down

Don't move away
Here's where you belong

You were the closest thing to life in my world
But I will try to keep my head up high to breathe
The sorrow will come out
The tower of joy will build
But I hope I will not ever forget the heart of hearts

The heart of hearts came down, down to earth in sheer love
The heart of hearts came down

And all around, across the sky, and in my mind I see pairs deep in love and falling in to the cracks of light—a place inside my memory
The freedom of being alone is not enough
Cut your way into my soul
Cut your way just like the rest
Now sow the holes

As I lay awake a drop of hope falls to the earth
Track Name: Over
O how'd we get this far, far from all our soul down in the mud?
We’re tired of living low, low below the flow of the water glow
We’re seeing nothing

O why don't you get up?
You, you got to stand up
They will come and get you if you stay and let them in
You got to go out
You have got just what it takes
It's over for the wait

You’re beating all the ones who made you low
Track Name: Silent Lo
Wake up wishing you were free of all of this
Cause whatever happens is coming out of you this time

Take me with you
We used to walk wind in the sun
You can call me crazy
But I’ve been walking with a ghost

Catch on to me
Dreams are a couple streets ahead
Don’t be the lone crone sobbing in your rocking bed
This is life
Go and get what you need
This is life

It will search you, find you in your fullest form and it will take you, take you, to the freest place where it will fall out, fall out, in a sudden wave and you will wake up, wake up, wake up in your home like death was alright—it happened and now you’re young again just waiting for all your friends to wake up and find that it is alright—it comes out and takes you by surprise and it will fall.
