Track Name: Slow Days
Your grip is tightening around my throat
and I can't sleep with you watching me like that

Our heads at the water's edge,
I set stones upon your skin
and like the afterglow of a dream
I clung to your words

The day is slow
And I wait

My head is turning to meet your eye
I can't dream - It's endlessly on my mind

I did it to teach you
And you learn very well
Now I'll loosen the leash
You can crawl home in the rain

I'm the shadow on your sun
Don't you call my name

You've got bad lands to cross
Changing with the wind

I'm the shadow on your sun
Don't you call my name

You've got bad lands to cross
Changing with the wind
Track Name: Undergrowth
The water is closing over our heads
The dirt is crumbling beneath my feet

Keep your eyes on the sky

You're silently swimming next to me
The crawling ocean consumes you whole

Keep your eyes on the sky


Over your head, out of the rain
Lugging the weight of my words

Over your head, out of the rain
Lugging the weight of my words


Keep your eyes on my eyes
Follow me through the undergrowth
They'd like to see the garden, to bathe in the light
But they'll never know


Over your head, out of the rain
Lugging the weight of my words

Over your head, out of the rain
Lugging the weight of my words


Glowing, Humming
Glowing, Humming
Glowing, Humming
In the undergrowth...
Track Name: Cold Skin
Let me fold around you
Taste your skin

Oh, such heavy skies
Cold skin on the sand

I've had the strangest thoughts
I've had the strangest thoughts

I watch you move
and you're all mine

I watch you move
and you're all mine


Who are you?
Why you messing with my mind?

Tell me who you are and why you're going
Tell me who you are and why you're going
Track Name: Seed
The birds planted seeds around my feet
Circling my head for days
Willing me to grow

The grain, the root
Grounded in the dirt
The grain, the root
Grounded in the dirt


Grow!
Grow out of your mind


Winter is ahead
Long and still
The wild trees surround me,
Smothering

Restless and ageless,
Standing tall.
Restless and ageless,
Standing tall


Grow!
Grow out of your mind


I'm feeling under pressure
Turning my brain inside out
You want me,
You want me,
Turning my brain inside out
