Track Name: Astray
Sittin’ here alone and broken down
Wonderin’ why my soul’s this comfortable this close to the ground
Haven’t seen you in a while, but the thought still makes me smile
In a web of lies and world that’s got me up here spinnin’
Up on ledges spinnin’

Oh and I’ve been chasing cars out in the street like chasin’ away
Oh and I can’t see that far but I know enough to still pray for rain
And I can’t remember what I said to make you take it this far
And I can’t remember what I can even do
Other than chase, chase these cars
Like a dog that used to be a stray
Like a dog that used to just run away
Like a dog that used to be a stray

And I can feel my feet go numb beneath the sleet on the frozen ground
Got a version of the truth, but if I take it to the people they’ll still need proof
But it works for me, if just for now

Oh and I’ve been chasing cars out in the street like chasin’ away
Oh and I can’t see that far but I know enough to still pray for rain
And I can’t remember what I said to make you take it this far
And I can’t remember what I can even do
Other than chase, chase these cars
Like a dog that used to be a stray
Like a dog that used to just run away
Like a dog that used to be a stray
Track Name: Into Ash
there's a girl she's not from this world
but she's the only one who feels the way I do
and every time she reads my mind
all I can see is the truth

but I'm starting to think you might need a little space to find some latitude
'cause I don't believe your answers even when you're telling the truth
and we have burned our feet on promises never meant to last
in between these photo burned scenes our memories are
sinkin' into ash

here's the world, breathe it in
the answers are in the morning rain
you can run, or you can live
the choice is yours alone to make

but I'm starting to think you might need a little space to find some latitude
'cause I don't believe your answers even when you're telling the truth
and we have burned our feet on promises never meant to last
in between these old suede scenes our memories are
sinkin' into ash

as our love burns down
it's burnin' to the ground
I can't see anymore
and now the truth is crashing down
I can't hear a sound
I can't see through the smoke
Through the smoke
I can't see
I can't see through the smoke anymore
more, more

there's a girl, she's not from this world
but she's the only one that still feels the way I do
and every time, she reads my mind
all I see is the truth
