Track Name: Generation Gaslight
The monsters' out from under the bed now baby
They're out lurking the streets
We'll I been sleeping with one eye open
So won't you listen to me

They think they got us running
They they think they got us scared
But they don't know what's coming
We've been getting prepared

We gotta fight for our lives
We gotta make this right
We won't be intimidated

We gotta take our chance
We gotta make our stand
We know we were born for this

They think they got us running
They think they got us scared
But they don't know what's coming
We've been getting prepared

They might say
That we're just special snowflakes
But there's one thing that I know
There's a blizzard coming

They might say
That we don't know what we're talkin about
But there's one thing that I know
There's a storm coming

Go ahead and
Take a deep breath
You can't fight if
You've got nothing left

We've been told our whole lives
That we are the problem

But we would buy houses
If we could afford them

We didn't ask for trophies
I wonder who gave them

They might say
That we're just special snowflakes
But there's one thing that I know
There's a blizzard coming

They might say
That we don't know what we're talkin about
But there's one thing that I know
There's a storm coming
Track Name: Ivy's Hands
Corner house on 188th
not too small, not too great.
Five of us kids, growing up strong
Five of us kids, lived in a shit suburban.
Corner house on 188th
Blackened floors, a little too late
Five of us kids, grew up despite
being left alone every night

Leaving home tomorrow I can't stay
Leaving home tomorrow running away
The house is overtaken by ivy's hands
They say it won't sustain
but I can

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Corner house on 188th
so much give, so much take
Summer nights, chasing the creek
School nights, fighting the week
Corner house on 188th
Blackened floors, a little too late
Five of us kids, grew up despite
being left alone every night
Track Name: Disassembled
A hundred tons of asphalt fall onto
my chest, my chest
I'll save some for a keepsake
and disregard the rest
the rest.

I’m weighed down
but nothing’s left
feeling heavy
but nothing’s said

Pieces fall onto the road
the road
They’ll never know little bits of me
corrode

Tunnel vision
sets in
Tunnel vision
sets in
I can see the details now
My ears are ringing
somehow
Track Name: Where is the Line?
Drawing lines can lead to nowhere
Blurry lines can make us blind
No good answers anywhere
No conversations, just divide



Where is the line between compassion and cruel?

Where is the line between me and you?

It’s never black and white
but you always pick a fight
what do we do

when we’re swimming in grey?

when you’re running away?

I just want to get this right
I just want to get this right
Are there any answers to these questions?
Endless schisms and cycles of violence
Is there any way we can right this?
Track Name: Junk Beach
Cascade tangerine
Over violet skies
Drinking forties
By the horizon lines
How many silver bullets
Do you think we shot at the moon
What even was it
We were ever trying to do

Holding each other's hearts
In our tired hands
This toxic beach is where we made our final stand
I swear to God I almost feel invincible
Carving sigils in the sand
I hear they're gonna build apartments here
I guess that makes a lot of sense
They already took the gay bar from us, I guess that's called a logical step

I know how Impossible it all feels right now
But together we can make it out somehow

x2

Fighting so hard
For the air that we breath
With you right beside me is all I could need
No I don't know where to find
The relief that we seek
But all I know is that we're not as broken as the glass that's on this beach

Fighting so hard
For the air that we breath
We're not as broken as the glass on this beach

x2
Track Name: Horizon Lines
Standing
All alone
Not a desert but an
Ocean that you call your home

You dragged your body
1500 miles
Across the rocks and leaves

And you might find yourself free falling
And you might find yourself free falling

Don't forget
All the sweet spells
That your friends wrote in the
Grimiore of your heart

Do you remember
Not that long ago
How you feared there was no future
Do you remember
How you felt there was no way out

You have come such a long way
You have come such a long way

You've been weaving
A wreath of fox gloves
Will you wear it proudly
Around your neck

You didn't build this
All by yourself
Neither did anybody else

Just remember when
You are feeling lost
And so deep in the darkness

That
You
Are not an island

Don't
Discount
The worth that you've done

And
The
Hands that have held you

Don't forget
All the sweet spells
That your friends wrote
In the Grimiore of your heart
In the Grimiore of your heart
In the Grimiore of your heart

And you might find yourself free falling
And you might find yourself free falling

This won't last forever
This won't last forever
I know someday this pain will fade

When all else fails you just keep fighting
When all else fails you just keep fighting
You aren't allowed to give up just yet
