Track Name: Warp
If this doesn’t thrill me, what will thrill me?
If this isn’t my time, when will it be?
Tell me what I want to hear; yes, baby.
I ask you to warp with me, so gently.

Could this be the last time I will feel this?
Have I felt the last time that I’ll feel this?
Tell me what I want to hear, please, someone.
I ask you to warp with me, so gently.
Track Name: Illuminate
You feel it in the night,
When you try to make things right.
But, beneath your skin you know,
You’re close, but still alone.

And I hate it,
But, there’s nothing I can do.
I’d help, but it’s up to you.

You took the light just when it was burning.
You took the flame and you turned it to ash.
So keep your life in a state of pretension.
And leave your dreams lost in the past.

Keep it all lit up,
So we can lose ourselves in the visions.
And baby can’t you see,
I can’t cure your apathy.

(Verse One)

And I hate it,
But, I’ve tried all I can do.
I’d help, but it’s up to you.

(Chorus)

You took the light and you turned it to darkness.
You took the flame and you turned it to ash.
So say goodnight to yourself for the first time,
Because you know it won’t be the last.

You took the light.
Track Name: Sail
You called me up one night,
And told me I should come on out with you.
Tonight, I’d have fun,
like you wanted me to.

You said you’d drive us there,
And on the way home I could drive us back.
It’s talks like these,
When I feel under attack.

But, I’m not weak.
I’m not gonna seek your love anymore.
‘Cause in this life,
I just want more.

And I will never be your boat to sail out on.
I will never be the one to call your phone.
Just keep on thinking that I’m a failure,
I’ll just go on.
I’ll just go on.

I felt I needed it.
But, only it, and not the games and pains.
That night, I saw what I couldn’t sustain.

But I’m not weak.
I just want to keep control of myself.
It’s not against you, it’s just something I can’t help.

And I will never be your boat to sail out on.
You’re not gonna be the one to destroy me.
Just keep on thinking that I’m a failure.
I’ll just go on.
I’ll just go on.

Like it never even happened.
Cathartic actions can be taken too far.
It’s all thoughts without reaction, in any fashion.

(Verse One)

(Chorus One)

And I will never be your boat to sail out on.
You’re not gonna be the one to take me, no.
Just keep on thinking that I’m a failure,
I’ll just go on.
Oh, I’ll just go on.
Track Name: When The Light Is On
I used to be a daytime street talker,
Had a place and I had a name.
Until I woke up from a smack-down kick to the face.

I felt I wasn’t doing all I could do,
And you were there with me.
These things don’t get better on their own,
You’ll have to burn your bridges free.

You know you’ll dance when you hear your song,
But you can only see when the light is on.
You think it’s over, but it’s just begun.
You can only see when the light is on.
You know I’ll jump when I hear the phone,
But you can only see when the light is on.
All that you’ve taken is almost gone,
But you can only see when the light is on.

The white washes on their pale grey backdrop
always seem to keep things in order.
‘Cause you can never tell that’s it’s fucked up as hell.

You know I’m just as scared as you,
And I want you there with me
With all the patience in the world,
I know you’ll never see.

(Chorus)

Can we go back now?
Can we go back now?
Can we go back now?
We can’t go back now.
Can we go back now?
We can’t go back now.
We can’t go back now.
We can’t go back now.

(Chorus)
Track Name: Daybreak
Safe in your affairs under electric eyes.
The walls are taller than we could ever realize.

I never cared that much, did you?
They never cared that much for us.
Watching us bleeding, watching us bleeding, yeah.
I never cared that much, did you?
They never cared that much for us.
Watching us bleed inside.

Daybreak,
The time when there’ll be no more we can take.
Daybreak,
Eventually you’ll force yourself awake.

Life is but a test of your faith.
The best of which gets tortured and scathed.

I never cared that much, did you?
They never cared that much for us.
Watching us feeding, watching us leaving, yeah.
I never cared that much, did you?
They never cared that much for us.
Watching us falling in line.

(Chorus)

Awake.
Awake.
Awake.

(Chorus x2)
