Track Name: Take It Back
I'm maintaining a safe distance off the coast
At your borders, waiting for you to drop your guard
But you make no advances in my direction - do you?
Or do you see me here?

These panes of glass might make you feel safe
Think you see what's coming but there's a tiger in your cage
Daren't make a run for it
But if you break them open, I will find you

Oh oh oh oh take it back
Take it back, take it back, take it back

Day in, day out, from dawn to dusk
How long until everyone has had enough
Don't you feel, don't you feel compounded?
It multiplies, oh it builds upon itself
And before you know
It's changed right in front of you, so
Take it back, take it back
Don't you listen? You are so difficult ...

Oh oh oh oh take it back
Oh oh oh oh take it back
Oh oh oh oh take it back
Take it back, take it back, take it back

Do you think that they would finally notice?
Track Name: Silence My Skin
Oh Jamie, let's keep our hearts pumpin'
Cuz I've lost the thrill I must confess
And I can't seem to find it
In late night drinks or phone calls from old friends

So I've been holding on to
Oh, anything that might silence my skin
It's been telling me to start walking
Oh I can feel it itchin, itchin

There's a mindset so erratic it becomes habit
'til I'm proned and primed to snap and do anything
But through all that I've read and the shouting in my head
I can hear you
I can hear you whispering

You do silence my skin
Whoa-oh, I'm in
You do silence my skin
Whoa-oh, I'm in
You do silence my skin
I can hear you
Hear you whispering
Track Name: Something Here
I think I've lost it again
That feeling that follows inspired events
Only lingers for a day or two
Before the reality starts to get you
Reality will always get you

Am I the only one
who sees the sanity in being young?
As we get older, our circles grow smaller
It's harder to raise a friendly voice on the phone
I guess we're meant to face this alone

I will miss you my friend
We started something but all good things must end
I just pray that some far off day we'll meet for coffee again
You may not have done much
But you'll be happy

Well hold on there's something here
Please hold on there must be something here
Well hold on there's something here
Track Name: Blink
There's a moment so distinctly
Carving synapses in my mind
You take my hand and tell me to close my eyes

I think the city, it is tellin'
But maybe all it's lessons have been learnt
The buildings across the continent have some words to share with

You can be so unkind
You can be so unkind

Well the skies they have a permanence
Where as we're just here right now
Blink once too often and you just might flicker out

That table by the window
Airline seats left unreserved
The way you say the things you hate like I never could

You can be so unkind
You can be so unkind
You can be so unkind
You can be so unkind

But so can I ...
Yeah, so can I

Life moves so fast
I know what you will say
Still I wish that I could ask for you to stay
I wish that I could ask for you to stay

We are all losing our minds
Well, yes we are
