Track Name: One Arm's Length
Though we don’t have bluer eyes than them, it’s so easy to pretend
A likeness to the smiles shimmering on the screens
And it seems so hard to treat, because it’s easy to create
It grows.

‘Cause I know that you’re always impressed with love.

Everything is kept at One Arm's Length
Just too far to grow

No we don’t have bluer eyes than them, so why should we pretend?
Unwinding autographs in double time to see
If these dreams are hard to cheat, they’re so easy to create
‘Cause they grow.

Everything is kept at One Arm's Length
Just too far to grow

Now, you see them change
They fall behind and you’ll stay the same
‘Cause I know that you’re always impressed with love.

If my head is my home
Then my head is my own.
If my head is my own
Then my head is my home.

Everything is kept at One Arm's Length
Just too far to grow
Track Name: Grand Designs
If I saw you there waiting for somebody else to come and save you, would you be on my side?

Setting a scene that we designed, if you’re so inclined.
Though I guess some thought of mine is all you’re waiting for.
So real goodbyes are just kept in touch, but these stairs are folding up.
For all I know we need to re-design

At 17,000 hours on you change your mind
(And let me go)
I need another one, another try to get you on my side.

Setting a scene that we designed, if you’re so inclined.
Though I guess some thought of mine is all you’re waiting for.
So real goodbyes are just kept in touch, but these stairs are folding up.

For all I know you need to read the reels we spun around
And magnify the love we found.
They’re there for us to re-enact when all we feel is nothing.

But what a surprise you’ve said goodbye
(And let me go)
A temporary road for you to ride and re-design

If I saw you there waiting for somebody else to come, I’d stop.

Setting a scene that we designed, if you’re so inclined.
Though I guess some thought of mine is all you’re waiting for.
So real goodbyes are just kept in touch, but these stairs are folding up.
For all I know I need to re-design
Track Name: Spectrums
Forever the dancers
But never on the stage
Always were built to be entwined
Till you step out of time

Because you killed all the authors
‘Their styles were a state’
If opinions are not the question dear
Then why I am I still here?

If we live forever
You’re gonna learn that everything runs round the bends
You paint all the walls with numbers

And build them all around you
So you don’t have to see through
You build them all around you
So you don’t have to see through

You built them yourself.

Before you bleach the colours,
Remember how to mesmerize and captivate
Or pick up yourself

But then you start to show me
The kind of place you hope will let you start again
You paint all the walls with numbers

And build them all around you
So you don’t have to see through
You build them all around you
So you don’t have to see through

Just let them drop.
Let them drop and let them swirl; these portals let you see the world in brighter ways than you can know, these portals made to help you grow.

Held my breath with broken hands
I say this so you understand
These words I say are simply slipping through.
Track Name: Reel Eyes
Stop.
Your reel eyes are unravelling too fast
There’s no surprise
Your reel eyes are unravelling too fast
Just throw them in the fire and burn yourself on the heat.

I run the risk of time.
Run the risk of time of running out.
You run the risk of time.
Run the risk of time of running…

Now you can’t get me out of your system
I’m well aware, I’m unravelling too fast
I flicker out/flicker in

I run the risk of time.
Run the risk of time of running out
Just throw them in the fire and burn yourself on the heat.

Now you can’t get me out of your system.
