Track Name: Lady of Nobody
And sure you had her at your fingers
Could navigate with your eyes closed
And sure you knew all of her pieces
Our Lady of Nobody

Such a disappointing puzzle
The chase is always better than the catch
And who could blame you for getting tired
Our Lady of Nobody

So you turn your back
And you walk away
And you think you hear her sobbing
And as the day fades
And you're far enough away
You take to the sky

And so she's peeled of all her layers
In Heaven and she is on fire
And of this choir I hear her singing
Our Lady of Nobody

And how they shine, so red her feathers
The brightest star above the sea
Even the strongest arms can't reach her
Our Lady of Nobody

And everyday I hear her singing
Our Lady of Nobody
Track Name: Safe and Soundless
And I can't admit I love you
I don't think I know the words
As graceful as hair in water
The arch, the curve
And I have kept this buried beneath me
Under floorboards and behind walls
And I could write it down in lead here
It will fade, after all

Safe and soundless
We slide against the page
Scared and motionless
Nothing to lose
Nothing to gain
There is safety in escaping
A strike of fear for me to stay
And I can hear you whisper
In the waves

We are little more than a series of letters
We're unmarked
We're unsent
We are neverminds, it doesn't matter
We're the spirits the salt has bent
Left to tangle across the other
And away from what we want
Content to simply scatter
Have we forgotten where to start?

Safe and soundless
We slide against the page
Scared and motionless
Nothing to lose
Nothing to gain
There is safety in escaping
A strike of fear for me to stay
And I can hear you whisper
In the waves
Track Name: Fake Diamonds
Well the day moves on
And he shines so bright
He shines like a star
In the daylight

Well the day moves on
And we just sigh
As dim as the rest in the daylight

But when the sun sets
They, too, shall fade
As dark as night
And just as plain

Well he plucked you up
And you watched him burn
And you prayed for the day he'd love you
For what you are

Well you danced all day
Then he set you free
And you begged with him
"...darling, just stay with me."

But when the sun sets
They, too, shall fade
As dark as night
And just as plain

Well the night moves on
And you'll see with time
That diamonds shine bright
With the right light
Shine on and on

on and on
Track Name: Foxes
Oh you will ride your foxes
You'll swim with armies
You said you'd build us a tower where we can stretch our legs and be free
Oh you have built this tower
Made of lies and misery
You scraped the skin from my arms
Tied knots in my veins
You have built this hole from me
Oh you will ride your foxes
You said you'd save me
You swore you'd love
Love me
Oh I would swim these waters that have poured out of me
I almost threw out my arms and swore you were the cavalry
But every mask every day
Through porcelain I see
This faery's tale is fading
But I'm a little bit brighter
Than you knew me to be
My spine unwinds, you see
Oh this vision is fading
And these walls don't sing
And I wonder if you ever think of me
Oh I wonder if you ever think of me
Track Name: In My Room the Chatter Lies
Peppermints and liquor laced
You don't know
You don't know
Take my hand and no one will ever, ever know.
