Track Name: Leveling Out
Sitting around in the hot wet heat
All the buzzing noise in your head on repeat
Don’t wanna go to the Saturday greet
Staying up late ‘cus ya know ya can’t sleep
Just sitting, waiting for something to do
If you stay still it won’t be coming to you
I can’t tell is this the right story
I could have sworn it had way more glory
Levelling out will ease my duress
Levelling out will be thy best
I can’t recall if this will be on the test
Levelling out, ya gonna be thy best

It sounds so sweet
But the buzz repeats
You're not so deep

Now that I’ve fixed my attention
Open to the world, it should make a suggestion
Still feeling the tension
Only mental partners for a sparring session
If I could say what I mean
And define what I mean to say
I don’t think there’s a vaccine proof
Buzzing in your head’s telling the truth
Running around, away from the sound
Driving away, follows like a hound
It’s picked up the scent
The scent of recognition making all of us repent
Well does that make me a blood sucker
Or just a bit of a mother
Well I guess it’s not as deep as I thought
Deafening buzzing drowning out this mental war

It sounds so sweet
But the buzz repeats
You're not so deep
It's bittersweet
But your heart it beats
You must feel something
Track Name: Summer In Sassafras
Gotta do it
Gotta check out
Gotta get out fast
Getting stuck in the past

There's nothin' to it
I say screw it
Gonna check out fast
I never thought it would last

So close I can taste it
Feeling nervous and weak
If I don't stand up and say this
Then my summers looking bleak

Gotta do it
Gotta check out
Gotta get out fast
Getting stuck in the past

There's nothin' to it
I say screw it
Gonna check out fast
I never thought it would last

So close I can taste it
Feeling nervous and weak
If I don't stand up and say this
Then my summers looking bleak


Chorus:
Eyes shut
I've already checked out
Eyes shut
I've checked out
Track Name: Redwood Crypt Village
As I look back
Was that me

Was that who I used to be
And I look back

Just beyond the trees

That's my face but that's not me


My old self bleeds

The crypt supersedes


It doesn't matter to me

It used to matter to me

But I've taken what I need


And my memories

Are scattered on the path

I can use them to surpass


My old self bleeds 

The crypt supersedes

The Redwood trees

Contain my memories



I'm still
Splintered by dreams 
wish I could be
re-woven
My mind
clashes inside 
I can't answer why
If I don't notice the time
Please pass me by
Too late for spite
Re-opened

My old self bleeds

The crypt supersedes

The Redwood trees

Contain my memories
Track Name: Escapist
Earthquake crackle under feather steps
Tip toe quietly around the wreck
 
Walking on egg shells, keeping your head down
Batten down the hatch, it’s nuclear meltdown
 
Not long now
Not long now
 
Feel the shifting sands, underneath your feet
If you leave would that be considered defeat?
 
Can’t wait like this, move against the grain
Initiate, be a catalyst of change
 
Not long now
Please god now
 
Scratch the pressure of your day to day disguise
Another moment that you’re finding that you're asking why
 
Scratch the presence of your week to week denial 
Another moment that the ties you’ve tied are far too tight
 
Scratch the pressure of your day to day disguise
Day by day
 
Wont keep feeling bound
Embraced the melt down
Collars like hand cuffs
No longer tied up
