Track Name: Hyde
Primal instincts
Nail my feet to the floor
In the harsh limelight
Where no one's keeping score

I can't heal the rash
Broke every lock on my door
Afraid to release the beast
But I keep wanting it more


No symmetry
I feel it
Hyde is here
The crows circling
I feel it
Hyde is here

No synergy
Come see it
Hyde is here
The crows circling
Cause Hyde is here


It’s your show now
Finally left on your own
Into the void
My feet are skipping like stones

All the lanterns at night
I follow the will'o'wisp
Let’s get lost in the meadows
I’m tired of trying to resist


No synergy
I feel it
Hyde is here
The crows circling
Cause Hyde is here


Cause Hyde is here


As a boy I was told
(I feel it Hyde is here)
At this speed you’ll never grow
You’ll never grow old
(I see it Hyde is here)
As a boy I was told
(I feel it Hyde is here)
At this speed you’ll never grow
You’ll never grow old
(I see it Hyde is here)


(I feel it)
Cause Hyde is here
(I see it)
Cause Hyde is here
(I feel it)
Cause Hyde is here
Track Name: Kowloon
Tracing the skyline
On scraps of paper
Tranquility
It's now or never
Tracing your movement
Across the street
And in my mind
You dominate

I let my guard down
Preparing our breakthrough
Forgot why I came here
But stayed for the view
Lets see how far it bends
Before it breaks
Whatever the future holds
I'll raise the stakes

Dawn, you rip me open
Your eloquence ended my pursuit
Dawn, I've awoken
To see what became of you

Hearts reverberate
Echoing in our sphere
A question remains
How did we end up here?
Doubts accumulate
Wishes unfulfilled
Our bridges weren't burnt
They were never built

Dawn, you rip me open
Your eloquence ended my pursuit
Dawn, I've awoken
To see what became of you
Dawn, you rip me open
Your eloquence ended my pursuit
Dawn, I've awoken
To see what became of you
Track Name: Daggers & Omens
May I hold your hand
Just a little longer
I’m not used to this
The air seems colder
I was way ahead
Sinking by your shoulder
Is this all I get
While we get nowhere?

The silent passage on
My answering machine
The empty thoughts
To which I cave in
I wish I had known
But then again
Like most things
It felt best unheard, unseen

Sometimes I wish for Daggers
and Omens
Sometimes I wish for Daggers
and Omens
It's time to cut the rope and get going
Sometimes I wish for Daggers
and Omens

One last fix
Just make me at ease
All the usual tricks
Just do as you please
I admit I was wrong
Now cure my disease
We’re way past deadlines
I'm yours to tease
I'm yours to tease

Sometimes I wish for Daggers
and Omens
Sometimes I wish for Daggers
and Omens
It's time to cut the rope and get going
Sometimes I wish for Daggers
and Omens
Track Name: Rubber Bullets
We were in this together
Before we even met
Knees deep, eyes closed
Awaiting the perfect fit

Like rubber bullets we ricochet
Like rubber bullets
Like rubber bullets we ricochet
Like rubber bullets

Like deer caught in the headlights
We're fleeing down the path we chose
Anxiously gazing back
To see if anyone follows
Us

Is it this simple?
Or are we blinded by the lights?
We're merciless drifters
No end in sight

Like rubber bullets we ricochet
Like rubber bullets
Like rubber bullets we ricochet
Like rubber bullets
Like rubber bullets we ricochet
Like rubber bullets
Like rubber bullets we ricochet
Like rubber bullets
Like rubber bullets we ricochet
Like rubber bullets
Like rubber bullets we ricochet
Like rubber bullets
Track Name: Akrasia
Gray and dull as
Our wandering minds
Wind shattered clouds
and mud intertwine
Trying to cover the contours
All there is to conquer
in sight

Counting pavement pebbles on coral beds
Like waiting to wake up and see
Someone saving me

Cement feet and hearts like stone
A ghost with bones
Behind glass and bars
I answer to no one


Cursed by akrasia
Akrasia
Pull me off this hook
It won’t be over till I say so
It won’t be over till I let go

Cursed by akrasia
Pull me off this hook
It won’t be over till I say so
It won’t be over till I let go


(Let it go)

(Let it go)


Stuck in circular motion
Toy plane on a piece of string
I admire your devotion
As I hang from the ceiling

If I could tear the blindfold
And start over again
I’d repeat our vows
Though I know it’s in vain


Cursed by akrasia
Akrasia
Pull me off this hook
It won’t be over till I say so
It won’t be over till I let go

Cursed by akrasia
Pull me off this hook
It won’t be over till I say so
It won’t be over till I let go


If i stay in line
If I bide my time
It won’t be over
It won’t be over
If I stay behind
For my peace of mind
It won’t be over
It won’t be over


Cursed by akrasia
Akrasia
Pull me off this hook
It won’t be over till I say so
It won’t be over till I let go

Cursed by akrasia
Pull me off this hook
It won’t be over till I say so
It won’t be over till I let go
