Track Name: Mercury Blood
there's no warmth left in my skin
but i don't mind it
it makes me feel alive
but it makes him want to leave

i'll never learn to love my imperfections
but i guess i don't deserve to
they make me human
but that's not what he wants me to be

afraid to leave but afraid to stay
between intimacy and guilt
replace my blood with mercury
and dance with me until i dissolve

afraid to feel but afraid to let go
of self-contempt and judging eyes
fill my blood with silver and gold
and dance with me until i lose my worth

is this really worth it?
let me waste away
without his thoughts
in the back of my head

am i really worth this?
the love we used to know is gone
but i've said enough

i swear there's nothing wrong with us
we're all equal under this starfilled sky
if you can't stand it, cremate me
and spread me by the skyline's light

love me
like you used to
before
you stopped caring

keep it
to yourself
while i try
to forget about it

damage me // can't face the ether alone
wound me // can't face the ether alone
wither with me // can't face the ether alone
my worth is lost
was it really worth this?

the love we used to know is gone
i can't face the ether alone.
Track Name: Everlasting
remember all the cold days in the garage
almost two years ago
a summer of separation sowed us closer
and i wouldn't mind if the stitches stayed

remember what we long for
and who we love

there's still a voice in my head
that tells me everything
will eventually be alright
as long as we

remember what we believe in
and i do, i always do
as long as we remember what we believe in
and i do, i always do.
Track Name: The State The Sea Left Me In - Blooming Youth
Our blooming youth it took us far from this.
Still I'm hearing
the narrow voice that says I'll never make it,
I'll be left behind.
Here to stay.
Become what I feared.

What does the future bring?
I must know everything.

No one noticed any hint of a dead end.
It soon unraveled to
come down upon us pushing on
and hit me much to close to home.

Our blooming youth it took us far from this.
Still I'm hearing
the narrow voice that says I'll never make it,
I'll be left behind.
Always left behind.

What does the future bring?
I must know everything.
Track Name: The State The Sea Left Me In - Take Heart
So close to what you aspire
yet you lose faith and grow tired.
Holding onto lost ground only takes you so far.

Cannot make claim to an honest try
to search substance
in a distraught state of mind.

A sense of purpose reduced to routine.
Can't take things to heart
just playing your part.
Repeating seconds and the time in between,
only moments apart
yet it was doomed from the start.

Can't gain ground without losing balance.
Can't walk straight when you've just been turned down
at the end of the line.
A distraught state of mind.
It's the same thing all the time.

So close to what you aspire
yet you lose faith and grow tired.
I'm through with doing the same thing.

(Take heart)
You'll need it from the start.
