Track Name: Sunday
you can be my Sunday
I will be your satellite
you can trace the highways
in your new car

I only want the good things for you
I only want those good things
for me too

there's no mending this
there's no fixing it
but I don't mind
Track Name: Ghost
there lived a girl in the trees
not far off the coast
she lived off of leaves
she was living like a ghost

she moves in and out of dreams
sometimes she speaks
sometimes she screams
i watch them arranging her limbs
as if it's natural the shape she's in

a crowd gathers in the coldest air
as her body washes up
her hands are swollen animals
her skull an emptied cup

we waited for the rains
to wash her away
but when none came
we turned away

there is a dark place in her heart
there is a dark place in our hearts

please forgive me
Track Name: Into the Depths
this is the song in me
that calls to the sea
when the child feels like drowning

and she will one day
get her way
in waves and waves
of eternity

this child won't swim
this child within
