Track Name: Hardlines Out
does it make you nervous, yeah?
does it get in your head not to know where we are?
all under your skin like a sound in the dark?
scared and warm, content and bizarre
does it make you nervous, yeah?
Track Name: Other Sun (ft. Snailhead)
i wonder if it ever happened, yeah, to anyone else
i wonder if it ever happened, yeah, to anyone else
i can't imagine i'd believe it if it wasn't myself
i don't think i could believe it if it wasn't myself
'cause when i hit the ground i felt i felt impossibly tense
you helped me up and then i said i said it didn't make sense
back when you told me every everything was gonna be fine
i said "of course," and then i stared up at the ceiling all night
and when i get back home to someone i can ask for advice
and if the summer ends and somehow we're both still alive
i will describe to them the circumstances that we survived
oh, it is beautiful, but maybe, yeah, it's all in my mind

i wonder if it ever happened, yeah, to anyone else
i wonder if it ever happened, yeah, to anyone else
but we could use the summer, summer's gonna keep us alive
but we could use the summer, summer's gonna keep us alive
Track Name: Eraenwes
where are we, where are we
in everything, in everything
Track Name: 2nd Sun/Stationary Sun
we are ninety million miles under the sun
and we're spinning out ever so gracefully
my head has been filled up with helium
all yellow to orange and sunshine to green
the colors are starting to bleed
lie in the backyard and never grow old again
will i survive? well, we'll see
in the end it was worth all the stories i told
because every moment is precious and perfect to me

i've always loved not knowing what's going on
in a summer that lasts for a day
that stays on repeat and repeat, rolling on
so just take down your calendars, throw them away
and enjoy this one sliver of peace
disregard any mistakes that we've made
will summer end? well, we'll see
slide out that window and sit in the shade with me
never leave.
Track Name: Trouble Sleeping?
well i've been perfect, i've been
horrible and fearless and brave
i've been made fun of, lost love,
swept under rugs, i've gotten played
i've been triumphant, i've collapsed
distracted undone confused
i've been rebuilt, resold,
recatalogued, refurbished, reused

but i see no harm in watching every little thing that you
and i'm gonna end up wasting quite a lot of time about you
so go and spread the news,
but if you please, don't think about me

oh, i think it's clear there's consequences we didn't see
...and i can't sleep

well i've been the happiest man alive,
hit by the light and left blind
destroyed unspent half dead
reduced to nothing missed every sign
you've stood on stars, you've totaled cars,
you've repaid all of your debt
you took that summer heat
with grace that i can never forget

but it'd be so easy just to slip back and to let it reset
but i've got matters to attend to, i can't leave here just yet
although the sweat that's on your forehead
is like something of a dream

oh but of course there's gotta be some
consequences we didn't see
this light is lovely but some
rest is really only what i need

...and i can't sleep
Track Name: Guts of the World
do you think i'm paranoid? see, i can never tell
if you asked i'd say we're closer here to heaven than to hell,
but i repeat: this place somehow makes me feel unwell

everyone is complicated and unique but still all scared to die
no one's really crying. everybody's just got something in their eye
yeah i can't place it but i made a wrong turn somewhere along the line

after spending long enough here everybody seems to learn
just sit back relax and listen try to hang on every word
i only can't get past the fact that it's so sunny
in the guts of the world

so i'll wait until the morning 'till i pack my bags and leave
(if i hurry i think i can manage seven hours of sleep)
because while everything is perfect here
well, it ain't the place i need

well, the sun's too bright, the sun's too bright,
someone do something about it, yeah
well, the sun's too bright, the sun's too bright,
someone do something about it, yeah
and when i saw you smiling it was terrifying
and i will run until my legs give out
and i will run until my legs give out
and i will run until my legs give out

there's a tightness in my chest that's creeping up the wall
all around here, and it's not my place to judge this place at all
but from the inside, i feel like everything is way too small
Track Name: Thescape/1st Sun
reshape the mountains pour your coffee put the hillside in bloom
repaint the kitchen wash the counters stock the fridge clean your room
make sure the weather's picture pleasant wash the skyline in chrome
i want the world to be perfect when you get home.

i want the world to be perfect when you get home soon
i want the world to be perfect when you get home soon
