Track Name: She Can't Know
they don't come out at night anymore
they leave me be
i saw it in her eyes, all dressed up
will she tell me? will she tell me?

will she tell me something so i can breathe?
but she can't know

she turns her head, and i mind
pretend that its ok, pretend its fine
but am i just wasting time

will they sell me something so i can breathe?
but she can't know

well i hear things, and i can't close my eyes
i can't close my eyes
but she whispers things, and i know i'm alright
she keeps me alive

but she can't know
Track Name: It'll Be OK
you said don't forget anything you said
four chances squandered, fifth won't come out
turn my eyes forward, and reach for blindness
i take my own stand, they force their hand

don't ever forget i've got my
my own reasons
don't turn your back on me

it'll be ok, when i am older
it'll be ok, when this is done
it'll be ok, you will forget me
it'll be ok, it'll be ok

it'll be ok, you aren't forgotten
it'll be ok, i am half gone
it'll be ok, you won't remember
it'll be ok, it'll be ok

you find the half self that can't forgive
empty eyes forward, i can't turn back
drop my words endless, and fight for trying
chosen voice backwards, i can't forget

don't ever forget i've got my
my own reasons
don't turn your back on me

it'll be ok, when i am older
it'll be ok, when this is done
it'll be ok, you won't remember
it'll be ok, it'll be ok

it'll be ok, you aren't forgotten
it'll be ok, when you're half-gone
it'll be ok, i can't remember
it'll be ok, it'll be ok

THEY SPEAK THEIR WORDS AND I CAN'T GO TO SLEEP
fifteen turns and i don't believe you when you tell me...

..that it'll be ok, when i am older
it'll be ok, when this is done
it'll be ok, you can't remember
it'll be ok, it'll be ok

it'll be ok, you aren't forgotten
it'll be ok, i am half-gone
it'll be ok, we won't remember
that it'll be ok, it'll be ok
Track Name: Sur
floating distance, what is it that you see?
liberated, at the bottom of the sea?

run through the motions
that are outside your door
don't even bother
they're the same as the ones from the day before

here we go again, here go again...

you find in you, there's me
you stare, right through, to me

please forgive me
these things i'll have to do
try and understand
we couldn't all get away as easily as you

here we go again, here we go again...

you find in you, there's me
you stare, right through, to me

i've grown tired of action and of words
cause you still see right through to me
