Track Name: Dampening The Euphoria
So I came to see you
With your white bandages
And a machine to pump you full of oxygen
The very thing that measures my distance from you
Your wounds are healing, and morphing into scars
Maybe someone will fall in love with them
One day, one day outside of this room
This room in that world, that world
That world that tried to take you away from me

And should I mention this?
And should I mention this and to whom?
That you were always bound
That you were always bound to end up here

On a cold day in March I had come to visit you
With your favourite snacks and flowers
A surprise! A surprise! Well imagine mine!
To call your name upon silence
Well that's you, yes you
You're always the fighter, you're always the fighter
It's always a battle with you
Track Name: Parental Control
Mother, Can you teach me how to be right?
I want to learn how to correct myself away
From this road I am travelling down
But this is not me, this is not your daughter speaking

I am falling, falling out of control

Father, can you teach me how to fight
The many battles raging inside of me
It's growing like a cancer in me
But this is not me, this is not your daughter speaking
Track Name: Little Child
You find me all over this place, because I am
I colour-coded my favourite parts of you
And your body
But none of it worked

And I stand!

When I understood enough of this
I felt ready to change but I was never ready to let go of you
You're like an addiction, you're like a prescription
And it was fun until we got hurt

And I stand!
Track Name: Rain Song
You are water veiled
Emotion and, emotion and
You are sprinkled lightly
On my skin, on my skin
You are like a rose
With petals dimpled
Watery lumps
Survival food in this drought

And when I look you were always here
And when I look you were always here
And when I look I see patterns now
And when I look I am, well I am taken back

You are like a rose
With petals dimpled
Watery lumps
Survival food in this drought

And when I look
And when I look

You let it rain
You let it rain down
Track Name: Same As Tomorrow
It comes and it rises
Like chemicals in my brain
It comes and it erases
The particles in my veins
So when you close your eyes
I'll be standing close to you
Always, always
I'll touch your skin as you crumble down
Stay true to size player, stay true to size player

You are the same! You are the same!

I'll be the same as tomorrow
Oh I'll be the same, I'll be the same as tomorrow
The sun rises on time that's borrowed
Oh I'll be the same, I'll be the same as tomorrow

You are the same! You are the same!
