Track Name: Sussex
I hear the heart’s a lonely hunter
It takes a trick to divide
Don't underestimate the details
Don't mistake self-pity for pride

It takes time
It's alright

It’s a loss of intuition
The words you said to me
Now my minds a subdivision
Of who I used to be

Spent some time in a three-year city
Still a stranger in your arms

And you were a library of lost thoughts
And you had ice water eyes
And you came to love what I was not
But saw instead a man devised

It’s a lack of a sensation
Your eyes glossing over me
I’m not surprised at your frustration
I’m not the man you’d hoped to see
Track Name: Matador
You know I’m persuasive
Reward me with trust, you swear
“Famous Blue Raincoat” was written for us
And when you’re looking my way,
Things are going my way
Let’s leave this party, hide away for an hour, just you and me
Find out there’s nothing more that you envy

I try to be self-sacrificing
I aim to be in control of the situation
Girl we’re gonna go places
I will take you places

Tell me I’m surefire,
Chase my effect, you sway,
You move like a florist
Take your time to select
And when there’s something to say
Things go better my way
You ask if I’m a traditional man, I might have been
You’re lookin’ for a tell-tale heart, it's not mine to give

I try to be self-sacrificing
I aim to be in control of the situation
Girl we’re gonna go places
I will take you places
(I will take you there)
Track Name: Mediterraneans
What was I supposed to do?
You told me forever
I didn’t know we were just playin’

I can taste the sunlight in your step
Like one more drink
And I’m way beyond resisting you

I can feel it right beside her
Like it hangs around my neck
You could hold on even tighter
I’m a model citizen
I could go a little longer
If I’m welcomed like a guest
It might be a friendly gesture
If you introduce me to the rest

Living out “Tender Is the Night”
and I am your Leading Man
You’re clever, you’re never alone
Could you get the lights sweetheart?

(Could you get the lights sweetheart?)

I’m glad I found you
Out amongst the grey blue green
Swimming through you is pretty easy

I hope you find out
Whether you loved your father
I’m sorry you’re nervous all the time

I can feel it right beside her
Like it hangs around my neck
You could hold on even tighter
I’m a model citizen
I could go a little longer
If I’m welcomed like a guest
It might be a friendly gesture
If you introduce me to the rest

We’re living out “Tender Is the Night”
and I am your Leading Man
You’re clever, you’re never alone
Could you get the lights sweetheart?

I’ve been credited with the fall of man
Track Name: Pearl Diver
Tell me what it is that undoes me from end to end
And I'll break from you
What it takes from me not to tell you exactly how I feel
When I see you there
What I see in you

Girl, you’re a pearl diver
Weigh my heart in judgement’s favor
Tempest eyes steal tortured hours
Deliver me

Your voice is lost in my worship

Introduce me to your vignette
Your eyes, your smile, your silhouette
Haunts me

Tell me what it is that undoes me from end to end
And I'll break from you
What it takes from me not to tell you exactly how I feel
When I see you there
What I see in you

Girl, you’re a pearl diver
Weigh my heart in judgement’s favor
Tempest eyes steal tortured hours
Deliver me

Like sound travels over water
Distance is no threat
The secret to a happy life
I’m reluctant to forget

Girl, you'r a pearl diver
Tempest eyes steal tortured hours

Girl, you’re a pearl diver
God’s existence in her smile
Deliver me
Track Name: Barrier
Give chase and I’ll be waiting
You could be wasted on me
Keeping up with a haunted heart
It gets harder as the sun retreats

You're a killer if you walk away now
I'm not married to the thought of you aren't

It was never my intention to corner you

Come here
And let me take the darkest parts of you
So long
So much for being what I want us to

Please, your voice maintains me
Your conversation is a luxury
I’m hanging on to each and every word
Commit this moment to my memory

You're a killer if you walk away now
I'm not married to the thought of you aren't
Make my vices your vices to find you
I’ve watched men follow and fall behind you

Come here
Let me take the darkest parts of you
So long
So much for being what I want us to
Track Name: She Fell Into The Habit of the Tide
When you tell me your desires in confidence
You make them mine
I could equal your possession, give me time
We could take it to the Nines

She fell into the habit of the tide
Ran through hallways always searching
If there’s a pattern to your step, you’ve caught my eye
Otherwise its just play

This love comes with a shadow

I could equal your possession, give me time
We could take it to the Nines

You pull me under
Hold my breath like the bride beneath her veil
You put me under

The sequence of our actions arrive
Like fevers in the night
You say love’s a decoration that we hide
And replace with second sight

She fell into the habit of the tide
Ran through hallways always searching
If there’s a pattern to your step, you’ve caught my eye
Otherwise its just summer days

This love comes with a shadow

I could equal your possession, give me time
We could take it to the Nines

You pull me under
Hold my breath like the bride beneath her veil
You put me under
Track Name: Ellipsis
Convinced myself I've a sentimental soul
Maybe I’ve lost the spring in my step
Take it slow as you approach
Retract my hand, you’re electric

Because silence won’t ease the anguish
and locked doors can’t hide sharp words

And you can’t separate
Confessor from confession

Memory’s a ghost and she lives with me

I’ve spent my chivalry
Bearing your sympathy

Memory’s a ghost and she lives with me
She lives with me, she lives with me

Her tongue, it whips me softly now, will it balance out my shame
I can vouch for passing rituals, though they may be all in vain
I’ll try to avoid every treacherous moment I would sink my teeth in love
She’s dwelling in the bottom of my heart but my heart's no longer inhabitable

I wouldn't take you for any less than fast style

All my valor has been impaired
Track Name: Iceberg Theory
Indecisive darling cover me with a coat of arms
I’m drawn to the aesthetic of being guided through a storm
It’s the art of conversation that I respect but do not fear
If I were to call you sweetheart would you be any more secure

Just call me elusive

Surround myself with the cynics and skeptics
And I fit like a glove

She’s a hazard to the day by day
But not the only one
