How do we sleep How do we eat How can we live this way? How can we preach Love and peace When we took it all away? We had a colony It was beauty

For the love that we share We went to the sea I promised I cherished you Alone in the trees 6 million acres Never enough Show me a forest Big enough for our love For the love of the valley We settled our heads Our hearts were glowing A bright blood red The green was the calm Put us to rest One day we'll journey To land further west Hiking these trails Keeps me at peace Centers and grounds me Calming the beast 6 million acres Ours to explore Each day we spend together I love you more

Graben 03:15
Living every minute In normal fault Horst around you Like a guardian wall Always shape Your best gestalt Cradled in green Summer to Fall Forces pushed you Up and down The rift is Where we lay our crown Counting every minute Til we meet again The jagged valley Always at the end I've thought so long About these edges Do they betray or Do they protect us? Forces pushed you Up and down The rift is Where we lay our crown Carving out the earth Leda clay Quicker than the river Outaouais Plate techtonics We grind away Push and quiver I hope yr here to stay Forces pushed you Up and down The rift is Where we lay our crown Craving Another shift Pushing against me Anniversary gift We are joined At the hip Press your lips To my lips

Hit me up We're going for a hike Winter in the valley Is really nice Quiet paths A calm veneer Covers the grime We made last year Hit me up We'll hit the ice Our blades on glass Sharp as a knife The steam of our lungs Plays the air Like a secret strategy Both of us share Hit me up We're staying inside Too cold to live Too hot to die Make some tea Listen to tunes The winds outside Howl to the groove Hit me up We'll hug and kiss Making love In the middle of this Frostbitten fingers Finally warm Winter in the valley Where I was born

Squall 03:50
Don't go out In the heavy snow You'll lose your way All alone Don't go out In the sharp squall The wind will take you Make you fall
7.
Cold Waltz 05:08
Icy grip So you don't slip Cold stare It's like you're not really there Come to bed Slide into my head Cold comfort Closer to share Second guess This place is a mess Chance to renew Emotions are bare Cold waltz It's not our fault Cold waltz It was what we were taught
8.
Lungs 03:42
Weary My lungs feel weird An alternate reality Maybe I didn't grow beard Maybe I never started smoking Maybe I never got high Weird I'd be a very telling tale Normal I'd be a total different guy Lungs Suck it in, suck it out Blood Pumping ox, how I sound
9.
Acid Rain 03:01
Pitter patter All my joints ache tonight Doesn't matter There is no way to fight Sleeping patterns Everything's outta sync Bruised and battered Spiralling down the sink Clouds gathered Fog's time to creep What does it matter How much you weep? Our father Hollow as your name Burned our bodies Spitting acid rain It turned out It turned out it was bad for us It turned out It turned out it was bad for us Grey skies All the tales foretold Drowned out by The song you never sold Poor baby Pouring out your heart Four seasons Weeping, sleeping art It turned out It turned out it was bad for us It turned out It turned out it was bad for us Fine mist Cooling off my rage Poster boy For not acting my age Murky waters Dust and acid rain Muddy wishes Devil in disdain
