Track Name: Circa 1620
Forget about me
For a little while
I’ll be the girl in the tower
Waiting for your call
I’ll admire
Your independence
I’ll be the girl who’s heart’s waiting
Wake me up in Venice

You had been so stone faced
When I talked to you
I had an explanation
And a reason
To break you
"I don’t want your perfect love
And certainty
It’s too easy to settle down
I need us to be free.”

You had to absorb that a minute
All you did was stood up and lift your
Questioning eyes made me a fighter
You’re so composed, but I’m wiser
Put your arms around me so tightly
Swallow the tears you had been fighting
Close your eyes and kiss my forehead
"Baby you don’t have to do this."

Forget about me
For a little while
I’ll be the girl in the tower
Waiting for your call
I’ll admire
Your independence
I’ll be the girl who’s heart’s waiting
Wake me up in Venice

So here I am still living life
Apart from you
I’ve had all my hardships
What have you been through?
Do you know the concept
Of eternal love?
I’m the one who’s known it’s you
And never given up

I’ve trudged these broken rocks
Day and night
For what?
To be reminded that people change
Please make sure he knows that
I’ll be here hoping he’ll come back
There’s only one window in these four walls
Its has no glass but I never fall
Even though I’m constantly searching
Down six stories silent and hurting

Forget about me
For a little while
I’ll be the girl in the tower
Waiting for your call
I’ll admire
Your independence
I’ll be the girl who’s heart’s waiting
Wake me up in Venice

I’ve become numb to this human life
I’ve become numb to
This human life

I’ve trudged these broken rocks day and night
For what?
To be reminded that people change
I’m the one who’s known it’s you
And never given up.
This human life.
Track Name: San Francisco
Tony,
Sometimes...
I just wish you were a drag queen.

Had you always yearned
For a life like a midway
Baby, I know it hurts
That you gave up on yourself so easily
Ask me, and I'll
Tell you the truth now
It's so simple
It's memories.

Now you're living in a world
That's so far above you
Mon amour, let me go
To San Francisco
Spare me your choices, boy
No, I'll never love you
Mon amour, let me go
To San Francisco
San Francisco never pushed me away
Madonna, disco, naked rainbow parades
Spare me your choices, boy
No, I'll never love you
Mon amour, let me go
To San Francisco

Why don't you move this chair
I'll get the coffee table
Like a virgin or a prayer
Keep your five inch heels on
I'll cut off all my hair
Close your eyes do you
Feel a little lighter?
These newborn memories

This is New Year's, but for a dance
So much glitter stuck to our hands
Cry out and wipe away
Your mind invaders

This is New Year's, but for a dance
So much glitter stuck to our hands
Cry out and wipe away
Your mind invaders

Now you're living in a world

Mon amour, let me go

Spare me your choices, boy
No, I'll never love you
Mon amour, let me go
To San Francisco
San Francisco never pushed me away
Madonna, disco, naked rainbow parades
Spare me your choices, boy
No, I'll never love you
Mon amour, let me go
To San Francisco

Spare me your choices, boy
San Francisco
Track Name: Headspace ft Context
I can see it when I close my eyes
You and me just dancing through the night
Haunted visions barely passing you by
You can't stop them, let me free your mind

Bring it down now, throw your hand in the air like this and
Bring it down now, throw your hand in the air like this and
Bring it down now, throw your hand in the air like this and
Bring it down now, throw your hand in the air like this and

Open up your box of memories and relive them for the last time
Freedom soon becomes ecstasy and it's running up my spine
Fantasy and reality will beautifully align
I can let you prey on my energy, that's my sacrifice

(CONTEXT)
Move, throw your hands to the ceiling
I know you can feel this
Roll with the vocals
We're blowing the speakers
It's Veela, the Queen of the Evening
Dance with the devil while the angels are speaking
Keep in time with the bass, pokerface
Slay beats and rhymes over breaks like a demon
The rhyme is the reason
Diamonds and sequins
Rock like a zombie the time of the season
Talk like I walk where your thoughts and your dreams live
Lost in the deep end you fought for your freedom
Anomaly solid while obstacles weaken
We're never gonna stop like it's always the weekend

In the room, I see you catch my eye
Shout a warning, I should fear the night
Frantic bodies swarming me on all sides
My heart beats and, I feel so alive

Bring it down now, throw your hand in the air like this and
Bring it down now, throw your hand in the air like this and
Bring it down now, throw your hand in the air like this and
Bring it down now, throw your hand in the air like this

Open up your box of memories and relive them for the last time
Freedom soon becomes ecstasy and it's running up my spine
Fantasy and reality will beautifully align
I can let you prey on my energy, that's my sacrifice

I can see it when I close my eyes
You and me just dancing through the night
Haunted visions barely passing you by
You can't stop them, let me free your mind
Track Name: Constellation Caravan
Who are you

Who are you to wake me up
And take away my dreams
And what are you so jealous of
We're all human
But you're skins green
No you couldn't reach me if you wanted to
It's gonna be a long walk, long walk
For you

And who are you?
And who are you?

Voices always telling me to look out for monsters
But I feel alive within the white night's sun
I'm a million miles ahead, it's already too late
One minute to midnight and my mind in gated

No I'm not willing to find your lock for you
There are far too many hidden doors
The only way you will be able to escape the mirrors
Is to kiss the floor

I'm a million miles ahead, it's already too late
One minute to midnight and my mind is gated
My mind is gated
My mind is gated
My mind is gated
I've gotta save it

Who are you to wake me up
And take away my dreams
And what are you so jealous of
We're all human
But you're skins green
No you couldn't reach me if you wanted to
It's gonna be a long walk, long walk
For you
It's gonna be a long walk, long walk
For you
It's gonna be a long walk, long walk
For you

The only way you will be able to escape the mirrors
Is to kiss the floor

It's gonna be a long walk, long walk
For you

Track Name: Exposure
Touch, leave, push, oh yeah

Bring me out to the midnight show
You won't listen, I don't want to go
I'll lose my grip if in this place,
There's nothing to hold onto except for your embrace
I wanna hear the secrets you've never told
So be bold now

Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
If you can believe it, I've fallen for you again
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
When I lose my veil, the moonlight, she brushes against
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
All the reasons I avoided and let you take me away
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
From the pain
But you sing sing sing sing

Sing sing sing sing

You're so uptight for what the future holds
Why you so scared of growing old?
You're always so hollow on your normal days
If you'd just live in the moment your soul won't fade away
I'll sing you haunted melodies
With the stories

Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
If you can believe it, I've fallen for you again
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
When I lose my veil, the moonlight, she brushes against
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
All the reasons I avoided and let you take me away
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
From the pain
But you sing sing sing sing

Remember when the nights were ours
We were free there were no bars
Make our way, you'd align the start
Can you tolerate my memoirs?
As painful as it may seem
I've gotta do it, need to see that gleam
Desire spark in your eyes
It's the truth and I know you despise it

Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
If you can believe it, I've fallen for you again
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
When I lose my veil, the moonlight, she brushes against
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
All the reasons I avoided and let you take me away
Touch, leave, push, ah oh yeah
From the pain
But you sing sing sing sing

Bring me out to the midnight show
You won't listen, I don't want to go
I'll lose my grip if in this place,
There's nothing to hold onto except for your embrace
I wanna hear the secrets you've never told
So be bold now

If you can believe it, I've fallen for you again
When I lose my veil, the moonlight, she brushes against
I wanna hear the secrets you've never told
So be bold now

Falling for you...
