Track Name: Lifeline
Holding our balance on a lifeline
Trying not to slip over the edge
Are you the eye of the needle
Am I the knot on the thread

In search of steady reception
The signals starting to sway
Sometimes I think of the future
Sometimes I wish you away

And I am in constant denial
Maybe that’s make believe
Sometimes it’s hard to understand
what I am supposed to feel

I keep on mixing up signals
I keep on worrying still

That there are threads in the fabric
As there are moths around the light
That there is this stain on our patchwork
That makes our signals collide

And as the light starts to fade
The butterflies they go away
I used to keep them in my stomach
I thought they’d never escape

Navigating between wires
Trying to keep things at bay
And I would pluck every last string
If you’d just let me have my way

I would dust of all our memories
Rip open all of our old drawers
I know our flame somehow escaped us
I know that somehow it got lost

Once a mountain, now a cane
We lost our posture, lost our way
But we’re still limping on this road
But we don’t know where it goes

Tiny movements, twisted wills and
Constant slithering thoughts
Holding our balance on a snake tongue
The tip will tear us apart
Holding our balance on a lifeline

So if you’re a needle
And I am nothing but a thread
Could we not stitch our lives together
And wash the dirt stains off our cloth

Catch the moths in our hoop-net
And try to keep love in our heads
Bring back what once was so alive
Look back, undo, restart, rewind

I just wish it never had come to this
Track Name: The Prince
We're blood bound
So keep me closer to the bone
Please believe me, I never meant
Some of the things I've said and done

And I know, that some choices have been mistakes
Now I'm far too old to live here
But I don't know how to change

And it makes me wonder
Have I wasted my youth

Maybe I'm just different
I somehow formed another shape
My siblings evergreen in sunshine
Whilst I wither in their shade

And in their shadows
Of achievements and succes
I am the black sheep of our family
A failure never the less

And it makes me wonder
Have I wasted my youth

All my teenage years
I've built, built this wall of fear
Nobody wants me here
You judge my deepest flaw
For looking for the easy way out

And I know I'm not your choice
I'm just a matter of fact
But the fact is
I never wanted this anymore than you did

And I tried, but I'm tierd
(Not at all, So am I)
Of never quite getting there
To measure up to
(You owe it to yourself)
Could I be good enough
(To be strong)
For all of you
How could measure up to you
I'm sorry I don't have anything left to give
I just want fall through the floor
(Suit yourself)
And give up
(Walk away)
And give in
(From us all)
To my condition
(And draw the curtains for your eyes)
You carried me for so long
Don't think I can walk on my own
I can walk on my own

Blood ties, ties our floods together
But I am, alone out at sea
Abandoned by my shattered family
Crashing like waves, all over me
