Track Name: Demons
Let's kill silence like it was a sin
Your voice soothes better than the wind
We'll drown sorrow deep in the ocean
And talk about our demons as if they were friends
Track Name: The Passed Away
The Passed Away

Left around like a finished book, the ending wasn't worth the read
Put on mute in a symphony just because you started late and you didn't really like the song
You wanna be electric but you've gone too far
It's bound to kill you living like something you're not
Brought to tears by a memory and it ruins your afternoon
Settle down by the ocean shore and watch the past slip away, you did the same thing yesterday
You had the whole world at your fingers now it's gone
You let the ghosts of years-gone-by live way too long

Have you had enough?
It really is a shame that you took your hopes and decided to throw them all away
You can't really deny all that guilt inside til you finally burn the passed away

Pulled apart in the heart of a storm, sending fragments spiraling
Laid to rest by the dying light, its color surprising, you've been seeing it all along
You wanna be electric but you've gone too far
It's bound to kill you living like something you're not

Have you had enough?
It really is a shame that you took your hopes and decided to throw them all away
You can't really deny all that guilt inside til you finally burn the passed away

You had the whole world at your fingers now it's gone
You let the ghosts of years-gone-by live way too long
Track Name: Romance
Romance

I don't usually take a risk without a follow through
Life's got me swinging by that vine
It's just that you're the only one who gets the solitude and ever really has the time

So it hurts when you say you can't help me
I feel so hung up left to dry
You tell me "Romance couldn't save the sun from evening. It'd be a waste to even try."

I look inside myself in hopes to find the answers
But all I know is just a frame
I had the start, the end, the treasured ever after, but all that's gone it's up in flames

So it burns when you say you don't need me
I feel so gutted I could cry
You tell me "Romance is a word that's lost it's meaning. You love a little then you die."
Oh...

So it hurts when you say you can't help me
I feel so hung up left to dry
You tell me "Romance couldn't save the sun from evening. It'd be a waste to even try."
It'd be a waste to even try
You love a little then you...
Track Name: You Are The Hybrid
You Are The Hybrid

You are the hybrid
You are the nature in my bones
You are the new age, evolution of the old

You are the vagrant remedy to cure the virus programmed by design
You are the final jubilee but the celebration can never be defined

You are la madre
You are the nurture in my home
You are eternal, a destination always known

You are the past in front of me but the future ain't trailing that far behind
You are the pure humanity, I'm out on a ledge and you tell me to climb

You came around and I fucked things up
I dropped my heart but then you picked it up
You said to me "Hey, I'll be around..."
When you pulled the plug the lights went out
Track Name: Shooting Star
Shooting Star

The rain falls down the gutter, gone, forever draining out of sight
The sky moves closer to the ground and all these lovers claim the see

She holds me as the sun goes down and then I feel her warmth wash over me again

My name belongs to you my love, forget it, it's just a memory
I don't exist when we're apart, i'm just some shade on a sunny day

She tells me her and I are one and then I feel the earth move fiercely once again

Let's kill silence like it was a sin
Your voice soothes better than the wind
We'll drown sorrow deep in the ocean
And talk about our demons as if they were friends

Grab the car and drive all night
We burn horizons down
Red lined but not enough
I can see you from the ground my shooting star
Track Name: Ride
Ride

Staring out the window again
The neighborhood looks the same, I'll just keep myself in doors today
Waiting for some kind of mood
But emotion stays benign, I'll just smoke another cigarette
I'm at the page pouring out my dreams of a love that may never come
Stuck in my head, making friends with ghosts that I know will never know my name

All of this is fine
All of this is compromise
Cause the more I fake the world the more I'll know
Cut the strong advice
Save it for another life
Cause once I write the ending you will know

Burning with persistent desire
The city looks mundane, I'll just raise my soul to a higher plane
Wreckage of a life once carefree
But the dreams don't come too easily so I hold them tight when they come to me
I'm at the edge covering both my eyes cause I know I couldn't bare the sight
Maybe one day I could ride away from the doubt and I could set free all my fears

All of this is fine
All of this is compromise
Cause the more I fake the world the more I'll know
Cut the strong advice
Save it for another life
Cause once I write the ending you will know
