Daydreaming 03:53
Daydreaming Searching for a sign through the woods Clustered in my head I can’t define what’s good or what’s bad I thought I understood, I thought I knew I could see through all this black and blue My body is so estranged I thought it did know you My mind right now – so deranged I thought it could speak truth I’m still waiting for that sign Do you know me better than I know you? You know I can’t stay here I can’t see through all the blue I’m still waiting for that sign
Bridges 03:35
No more, Can I fake it now No more, Can I take it now Would you rather be a listener, to the sounds of darkened cities? Or would you rather take your limited ability, and change the way you deal Would you rather hum in silence? Make regrets through all the violence Or would you rather make a sound that people can sing
I’m hanging on for life I walk on silver lines This fire burns by back Its unkind Don’t leave us behind Don’t leave us behind
Water 03:38
I woke up in the water I woke up with my love hanging by threads I saw us for the first time I saw it was the end No more water I'm drying out No more sunlight The world's getting darker Love is lost is blurry scenes of you for you and me for me We're too far away far away far away
Solace 02:01


Ever-changing throughout, the new mixtape is a gloriously skewed beast, the tempo and tone leaping between vivid moments of sparkling pop junctures, all simmering vocals and gently lapping instrumentals, and then disappearing in to a void of white-noise and experimentation, before the clouds clear once again, just long enough to feel warmth emanating through.
