Track Name: Untitled (Kitchen Song)
Your hands were golden in the evening light
As the sun died through the kitchen blinds
Fickle and bold as they brushed mine
But it was enough, that was enough for us

Let it go, Let it all fade away

All the nights you dragged me by the sleeve
And the hip scene left its mark on me
It didn't mean that much
It wasn't enough, what could be enough for us?

Let it go, Let it all float away
Don't let this go, don't let this love fade away
Track Name: Isosceles
The bones push through your skin
To control you from within

You keep a skeleton under your bed
Creeps out when you think you might just die of loneliness
Wearing the face of every person
You ever dragged home at 2 in the morning

There's no helping this
Light a candle in the crypts

You'd forget them again
Make your eyes pits of slate in a chalk teeth grin
But your hands won't stop shaking
What a mess we're in, you're letting it get the better of you

There's no helping this
Light a candle in the crypts

The bones push through your skin
To control you from within
Track Name: We'll Burn Those Bridges When We Get To Them
Hold on now pussycat your mouth's on backwards
Well how could you have said that? You've got no way with words
Loose lips let slip some intimate details
But you can't bring yourself to care, they won't remember anyway

You don't need it anymore

Who are you to judge a friend for kissing strangers?
When all we are is just a sum of our behaviours
Come on kitten tell me again you've got nowhere to run
So just sip on your champagne and think of what you've done

You don't need it anymore

You closed those doors
You start your wars
Spread rumours round
You burn those bridges down
Track Name: Fault Lines
Cold hands push up cold mornings
The frost will come following
With icy words and chilled hearts
Don't jump across the fog 'til you
Know what is waiting for you
It's what you don't know
That could hurt us both

'Cause you don't know what you're getting yourself into
The light that fills you is lost in these sad eyes
No you don't know all the horrors that await you
When the dog creeps in and it won't stop crying

And all these lonely bones will come crawling
Breaking ribs trying to hold it in
So we just push them aside
Warm words, a warmer shoulder you hold me
But still the temperature drops
and there's no way to stop the beast from shaking

'Cause you don't know what you're getting yourself into
The light that fills you is lost in these sad eyes
No you don't know all the horrors that await you
When the dog creeps in and it won't stop crying

So don't forget these words
If tomorrow I'm not myself again we all need air
And I would never try to drag you down there

Though you don't know what you're getting yourself into
The light that fills you brings hope to these sad eyes
Cause you are the gold on the pieces of a broken bowl
You make me whole
Proclaims to the world
That it's more perfect than before, more beautiful
For the scratches in its soul
Track Name: Los Restos
Cold, cold october night
Your shadow's cast in orange light
Tap tap from below
Tired eyes see street lamps glow

All that remains of us
Los Restos
But we're still ravenous
Los Restos

Held out from the night
Hiding out in plain sight
Footsteps they echo
Hands sweat slick, slip let go

All that remains of us
Los Restos
But we're still ravenous
Los Restos
