Track Name: Shapeshifting Monster
hapeshifting Monster

If you were to come to me after were dead
and I see just your skeleton head
would I recognize you, oh would I know
The face of your beautiful skull
Or forever I'm looking around
but forever you're lost and unfound
And I am to blame and I'm ashamed alone
with my own bones, cause I should have known

And I wanna know you
I wanna know you
Outside and inside above and below you
and honestly I want to see in yourself what you hate
so that I'm the most perfect escape

And If by some shapeshifting monster I'm cloned
And we both corner you while alone
And I would adore you but he wants pretty girls to eat
his fine cuisine, choicest meat
And you see you can't run but you got a gun
and you're bullets; you check you got one
What would I say to make you see
that it's me

I wanna know you
I wanna know you
Outside and inside above and below you
and honestly I want to see in yourself what you hate
cause I need you to know your escape

And I say
Do you remember the place I gave you my heart entirely
but the shapeshfiting monster read it all in your diary
and he beats me to the story and you aim at my head
and I'm panicking now, this demon's too good, I am dead
then you look in my eyes and we speak with our hearts
You see the most perfect escape

And that's how
I wanna know you I wanna know 
outside and inside above and below you
and shapes have their place
the back of your face
too pretty to waste
and I'll be the perfect escape
Track Name: The Sound of Secrets
Sound of Secrets

All the sounds that we are hearing
Do not die within our ears
They'll continue through the clearing
Stuck inside the atmosphere
If we could understand the process
We could know the world at first
In a universe expanding
Feel the hush before the burst
The silence is the sound of secrets
Silence is the sound of secrets
Silence is the sound
Silence is the sound of secrets
Silence is the sound of secrets
All the sights that we are seeing 
do not end within our eye
They will live inside our being
in our memories 'til we die
The quiet night the lights burned hotter
Knowing just the way we felt
And your reflection on the water
I saw you how you see yourself
The silence is the sound of secrets
The silence is the sound of secrets
Silence is the sound
Silence is the sound of secrets
Silence is the sound of secrets
And I'm trying to find a meaning
of a hurt inside you screaming
Silence is the sound of secrets
Silence is the sound
SIlence is the sound of secrets
Silence is the sound
Track Name: Words
Words
I wrote a text message
Oh I poured out my heart to you
but for some reason you never received it and I didn't know that it didn't go through
and when you never replied, oh I thought I had died, and I crawled in a hole in my gloom
tried to keep myself going, but never knowing, through technology I got screwed

And I think
Eyes are like spies for the heart
They see what words are silently screaming and return their true meaning
but words unassisted get tangled and twisted
and love is for talkers 
obsession for stalkers
but I got no better offers
so all of these words are for you

And I saw a brand new color
something never before been seen
and it wasn't some shade of red, blue, or yellow
not an orange or purple or green

well it was made under guidance of some underground science
and had only been seen by a few
and when i got all in a rage cause I could not explain it
I suggested they name it for you
and I think 

Eyes are like spies for the heart
They see what words are silently screaming and return their true meaning
but words unassisted get tangled and twisted 
and love is for talkers 
obsession for stalkers 
but I got no better offers
so all of these words are for you

take them alone but i pray you
realize they're counterfeit sounds that betray you
and they cannot tell you what I'm dying for you to know

When you finally received my text message
You wrote back stop I feel the same way too
but the timing was wrong I thought you'd quickly responded
when I promised to stop bothering you
You used a double exclamation, which I saw as extra frustration
missed the punctuation from your point of view
So I never wrote back, I just left it at that
And you didn't dare make the next move
And I think

Eyes are like spies for the heart
they see what words are silently screaming
and return they're true meaning
but words unassisted get tangled and twisted
and love is for talkers
obsession for stalkers
and I need you like air or like water for authors
but I got no better offers, so i guess all of these words have to do
I guess all of these words are for you
