Track Name: we were a glitch
If we were meant to be, more than static,
Why do I feel like noise? Does that sound dramatic?
Can we ever return to the way things were
Or will we always be lost, wandering

And you said nothing, but never looked away
And you said nothing, but never looked at me

I saw the shape of the world, come apart
It leaves me nothing, lying on the floor
Can we ever return to the way things were
Or will we always be lost, wandering the earth

And though I’ve never tried to leave this place
The world is slowly losing it’s taste
And though I never tried to reach this place
The world is slowly fading

I saw the shape of the world, come apart
It leaves me nothing, lying on the floor
Can we ever return to the way things were
Or will we always be lost, wandering the earth
Track Name: shut in
I’ve been watching myself sleep again
From the back of the room and the back of my head
And I’m feeling trapped again
In a body made of gold and lead

Is this really culture or is this just a cult?
Watching the screen flicker and the tv fizzle out
I wish my life had just been a fantasy
So maybe I could dream again

Breathe in and feel disconnected
Just to forget what it was like on the ground

I’ve been watching myself sleep again
From the back of the room and the back of my head
And I’m feeling trapped again
In a body made of gold and lead

Third floor, eyes closed, closing the curtains
Third floor, eyes closed, would I do it again?
Third floor, eyes closed, closing the curtains
Third floor, eyes closed, would I do it again?

Is this really culture or is this just a cult?
Watching the screen flicker and the tv fizzle out
I wish my life had just been a fantasy
So maybe I could dream again
Track Name: crystalline
You draw lines in the sand, with a spear made of glass
and wait for it to shatter, because you know it won’t last
Stranded on this island you made out of crystal and caskets

Do we always fall in crumbling castles, ones built so high we should of known they’d be disasters?
So tell me another lie to help me handle the truth, of being a stranger to everything but loneliness

You’ve lost touch, between your fingers and the glass
The ambience of plastic that never seems to last
Honest eyes, gazing at a place that we lost
Fostering the feeling

Here we are watching the same old show again, searching for a meaning but did we really know ourselves?

Do we always fall in crumbling castles, ones built so high we should of known they’d be disasters?
So tell me another lie to help me handle the truth, of being a stranger to everything but loneliness

You’ve lost touch, between your fingers and the glass
The ambience of plastic that never seems to last
Honest eyes, gazing at a place that we lost
Fostering the feeling

So tell me lies, I don’t think I can handle the truth
So tell me lies, I don’t think I ever could

Do we always fall in crumbling castles, ones built so high we should of known they’d be disasters?
So tell me another lie to help me handle the truth, of being a stranger to everything but loneliness

So tell me lies, I don’t think I can handle the truth
So tell me lies, I don’t think I ever could
Track Name: i tried (故障企業)
I’m blind, TV eyes
I sever ties
I’m sick, on the floor
Wrapped in cords

When I look at you I see numbers I can’t even count too
When I see me, I see me, I can only feel zeros

I tried

Binary implies two
Part of a machine that I’m sworn too

Blue screen, open seams
I’m dreaming
EMP, Is this really me
Prayers in plastic

Worthless toys, made of noise
I hear your voice
Flickering, CRT
Prayers in static

When I look at you I see numbers I can’t even count too
When I see me, I see me, I can only feel zeros

I tried
Track Name: hurtful android
Were you hurt when the wires dug in your skin
Burrowing so deep within you
Did you find something was missing?
And that’s why you let them in
I’m sure you must’ve felt something

When you tried to dream, and you wished that you could sleep longer
When you said those things, loneliness never made you stronger

Tell me you felt something
With the blinds closed, clinging to the bed
Tell me you felt something
Tell me anything

I’m sure you must’ve felt something

Did you hurt when you felt nameless and alone
Your only identity scribbled in code
Did you find something was missing?
An empty room you call home

I’m sure you must’ve felt something

Tell me you felt something
With the blinds closed, clinging to the bed
Tell me you felt something
Tell me anything

I’m sure you must’ve felt something

When you tried to dream, and you wished that you could sleep longer
When you said those things, loneliness never made you stronger
