Track Name: Pharmakon
Youre the biggest part
of a patchwork heart
draw me in again
to your broken mend

there's few who understand the charm
of one who is both help and harm
you're all I see you're all I know
and I want you so...

Pharmakon
in the half light I can feel you coming on
Pharmakon, Pharmakon
you're the only friend that I can call upon
Pharmakon, Pharmakon

So take me to that place
I wanna fall from grace
eclipse the faded moon
and every star consume

you are my poison and my cure
a wretched curse that I adore
oh how I crave a dose of you
to get me through...

Pharmakon
I'd follow you until all sense and reasons gone
Pharmakon, Pharmakon
I will go with you into that Babylon
Pharmakon, Pharmakon
Track Name: Vaults
These pointless words,
the only ones that matter always go unheard
the things we hide,
vaults we never open never look inside

though we try to decipher the clues that we find,
we are powerless to break free from the prisons of our minds

Assumptions fly
in us and around us through the black black sky
so many things unseen
we could not imagine what the truth could mean

little boats on an ocean that's deeper than we know
and we're floating on the surface unaware of the undertow

What happens to what lies beneath, lies beneath, in the vaults we keep
do our secrets sleep, or begin disintegration?
Fighting for relief, fighting for relief, from what lies beneath, in the vaults we keep

The things we share, just approximation of a world elsewhere
what glimpses we can steal
of the bigger picture can't amass to something real

been here before
I am no stranger to this feeling
no peace restore when you try your misguided healing

What happens to what lies beneath, lies beneath, in the vaults we keep
do our secrets sleep, or begin disintegration?
Fighting for relief, fighting for relief, from what lies beneath, in the vaults we keep

These pointless words,
the only ones that matter always go unheard
Track Name: Ghost
There's a ghost in this house
and i can't shut him out]
while I sleep when I wake
many forms he will take

he is, the falling light that splinters through the trees
the windows that I look through
the walls containing me
the way that I forget myself sometimes
threaded through a needles eye

well there's a stowaway in my heart,
coiled up inside, waiting in the dark
there's a feeling that still remains
subtle but unchanging
never really goes away

well perhaps it's my choice
he has always existed but I gave him a voice
now I wander in his wake, dreaming of escaping
from a lasting presence, from a lasting presence I can't shake

so I set this house alight
trying to escape him, with a fire burning bright
I forget that I'm still inside
and it's always him who saves me
carries me out into the night
Track Name: Half Asleep
Half asleep, drifting through
half formed thoughts you can't quite hold onto
just do what you're supposed to do
just make it easy

half asleep, half awake
there's a hint of something that you can't quite shake
the layers of bubble wrap and tape
can't quite disguise it

Forgot how to feel
it's ok, you say, cos nothing here seems real
but you know if you turn out the light
you leave yourself at the mercy of the night

half asleep, in a daze
abandon watch-towers and avert your gaze
it's comfortable inside the haze
muted and muffled

Look no further than this
for you just want simply to exist
but before you rest your head
you should know there's a monster underneath your bed
there's a monster underneath your bed
will you ignore it or talk to it instead?
