Track Name: Low
Track Name: Whisper To Me
When I think of an honest man
I'm lost to find one in my hands.
Clenching you but holding bone
I'm dripping slow for those I've hurt.

Confession makes for a guilty room;
purified by open wounds.
Slipping through the gates that I choose
these openings may never close.

So sit me in this gaping chair
and run your fingers through my hair.
If you find the words that speak

Whisper to me at your peak.
Track Name: Miss Resentment
What are you?
What I was.
You are different.
I am learning.

I think you got caught out
looking too far, hoping too hard
for the mirror to guide you.

I am not what you thought am I?
I am not what you've been looking for.
I am restless, I know.
I am restless, you have learned.
I am restless.

I am not what you thought
Miss Resentment, I am sorry.
Track Name: Swimming
He looks down
Is breaking
So softly

He looks down
So heavy
His way now

Out, breathing softly

Out, falling softly

Track Name: Never Alone
Never alone, never the same
Never alone, never the same
Never alone, never.

Laying with the muse, I slip behind a question
Disassociated now, I am put off
Before making eyes, blushed in realizing
The tenderness in solace as I ramble in my way:

If I came upon you humble
well-groomed as if by another
would you answer kindly?

If I came upon you stubborn
blurry mouthed and slippery diction
would you realize me?

Never alone, never the same
Never alone, never the same
Never alone, never
and I--

I wish you the best.
