Take It Back 03:54
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?

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

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

Blink 05:45
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
