Track Name: Slow Counter
These interactions are always stilted; you have tirades in place of conversations.
The centre of the world lies beneath your feet.

The world we know is crumbling; the fractures grow wider every day.
We try to freeze the ocean, but the icy water draws us in.

And I can only bite my tongue and choke on what I should be saying before you turn, before I let you walk away.
The centre of the world still lies beneath your feet.

The world we know is crumbling
The fractures grow wider every day
We try to freeze the ocean
But the icy water draws us in

I'd long surrendered my right to know; still I demanded fellowship and answers.

Always a minute late
Just a second short
Although I had the words
I'd never have the spotlight

Ever a minute late
Even just a second short
Although I'd find the words
I'd always miss the moment
Track Name: Kibitka
The best i can do is push my words to be kind, force myself from the lies; despite the futility, try.

I kicked away my own crutch to prove that i could stand, and I never learned so fast as I did when I lost that hand.

Having leaned upon this vice for far too long, how many times will I fail; how long must this go on?

Taking refuge and seeking comfort, with so much left unsaid.
Hiding in hubris, always defiant, a flood of pain left in my wake.
Track Name: Black Glitter
Glisten, sparkle and breath- your darkness brings the light which shines on me.
I'm fading and the waxing moon reveals daybreak and the light which blinds me.

These moments are fleeting, our silences are always dignified.
We both feel unburdened knowing that we've nothing left to hide.

Losing familiar and fading memories; times a test, or it's set to be.
Coursing through you, cascading towards me are sorrow, joy and nervous energy.

It was something I thought I'd lost; a vacuum that i couldn't fill.
And the harder I tried, the more I'd long.
You have something I thought I'd lost; a vacuum that I couldn't fill.
I gave up on love, but you proved me wrong.

I gave up on love, but you proved me wrong.
I abandoned hope, but you showed me warmth.
You risked so much, but it kept me strong.
I gave up on love, but you proved me wrong.
