Track Name: Near Drowning (Intro)
Near Drowning
Not a moment of slumber
But the meticulous evolution that illuminates a new world.
Wrapped in a blanket of sapphire,
The Creature finds solace in his very own Atlantis.
Others may watch and ask, “What led to the demise of Capricorn?”
Unaware of the independence found within deep waters.
Age of Aquarius
All the while, as critters crawled above sea level,
A great flood churned, poised to obliterate all security.
Those who gazed into the home of the solitary beast
became consumed by their own reflection,
distorting their willingness to dive in,
and embrace paradise.
As God smiled above he saw that the wickedness of man
was great in the earth,
and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart
was only evil continually.
Track Name: Cold Blood
Lately, I crave the bottom of the ocean, is the water cold?
(cold and steady)
Splinters and papercuts, they can’t engrave deep. Calm before the storm.
( stormy weather )
I make your blood cold. Better hold your breath.
We’ve been wasting our time
Fools gold, I've been so blind


Knock this vessel over
Let waves carry me
Sinking to the bottom
A sigh of relief
There is strength in drifting
where no one can see
heavenly

Drown my sorrows with wine
I’ve heard it 1000 times
You can’t hide who you are, a cursed reflection
A joker’s at the helm
This crew is bound to drown

Knock this vessel over, Let waves carry me
Sinking to the bottom, a sigh of relief
There is strength in drifting
where no one can see
heavenly

We are going under, I want to capsize
Sleeping with the fishes, as blue as the sky
We’re ashes to ashes
Fuck all those lies
kept inside

cold blooded
cold blood
cold blooded
cold blood
Track Name: Blue
Believe me, I am fine
Without you
I heard we can’t rewind

But part of you
And all those things you do
are creeping’ through
you pierce my skin like bow and arrow

You’re overdue
ooh


I’m feeling’ alright
Want an escape?
If you’re feeling’ blue
I got a fix for you

a meteorite
the stars have aligned
a whole damn new
hotel room for two
come with me
bring a knife, count twice
alright, meteorite

Another lease on life
I wanted it too
you hold me oh so tight

that part of you
And all those things you do
your poisoned cup
it stains the clothes of all who handle
Follow through
ooh

I’m feeling’ alright
Want an escape?
If you’re feeling’ blue
I got a fix for you

a meteorite
the stars have aligned
a whole damn new
hotel room for two
come with me
bring a knife, count twice
alright, meteorite

Blue Blue
Stay a while
Blue Blue
We'll crystalize
Blue Blue
Stay a while
Blue Blue
We'll crystalize

I’m feeling’ alright
Want an escape?
If you’re feeling’ blue
I got a fix for you

a meteorite
the stars have aligned
a whole damn new
hotel room for two
come with me
bring a knife, count twice
alright, meteorite
Track Name: Ghost of You
I walked along where you have walked before
I should have see the writing on the open door
You sang to me
Oh la dee da da dee
How could I know you'd drag me down like gravity

Well you have fallen out
of all your sneaky lies
You’re caught in your own web
Hang out to dry, dry
Well you have fallen out
A devil in disguise
Even the dead are haunted by you, ooh ooh ooh

Calamity
Around your rendezvous
We sold our only pieces of humanity
It's all a game
it hurts my soul to say
and all i'm left to follow is the ghost of you

Well you have fallen out
of all your sneaky lies
You’re caught in your own web
Hang out to dry, dry y y
Well you have fallen out
A devil in disguise
Even the dead are haunted by you, ooh ooh ooh

Ooh Ooh
Track Name: Done and Dusted
Face all the times we made mistakes
we’re moving forward slowly
Break the ties we had to shake
unleash another kind of sorry

Separate from me
Disintegrating
Evaporating
Separating

Can you fight the fire in the afterglow?
In a meteor shower
Gulf of Mexico, oh please
Better off dead, we’re done and dusted
Needle and thread, we’re done and dusted
Smokin’ instead it’s all be wiped away
Better off dead, we’re done and dusted
Needle and thread, we’re done and dusted
Smokin’ instead it’s all be wiped away

Wait all the time it takes
You’ll melt, like hard wax on a candle
Burn your bridges, can’t you learn?
you speak another type of scandal

Separate from me
Disintegrating
Evaporating
Separating

Can you fight the fire in the afterglow?
In a meteor shower
Gulf of Mexico, oh please
Better off dead, we’re done and dusted
Needle and thread, we’re done and dusted
Smokin’ instead it’s all be wiped away
Better off dead, we’re done and dusted
Needle and thread, we’re done and dusted
Smokin’ instead it’s all be wiped away
