Track Name: Other Dream
I'm lost and I'm running through a dream that I never had.
Track Name: Echoes
Narcissus I want you,
Narcissus I need you,

Narcissus I'm waiting,
Narcissus I see you,

Narcissus I want you,
Narcissus I need you,
Narcissus I see you,

Narcissus I'm waiting,
Narcissus I need you,
Narcissus I hear you,

Narcissus I want you,
Narcissus I need you,

Narcissus I want you,
Narcissus I need you,

Narcissus I want you,
Narcissus I need you,

Narcissus, I love you.

Narcissus...
Track Name: Oblivion (Grimes Cover)
another walk about,
after dark,
it's my point of view
that someone could break your neck,
coming up behind you, always coming and you never have a clue,

I never look behind,
all the time,
I will wait forever
always looking straight,
thinking, counting all the hours you wait.

see you on a dark night.
see you on a dark night.
see you on a dark night.

and now another clue,
I would ask,
if you could help me out,
it's hard to understand
cause when you're running by yourself
it's hard to find someone to hold your hand,

and oh it's good to be,
tough with me,
but I will wait forever,
I need someone else
to look into my eyes and tell me
"boy, you know, you gotta watch your health".

see you on a dark night...
Track Name: Eye to Eye
Eye to eye,
Holding your reflection,
Wonder why,
Yours is never good enough.

Such a pretty face,
Held up in disdain,
Pearls and roses made her vain.

Private life,
Opened up for everyone,
She wants to die,
Though she'd never try.

Help me,
Save me,
Don't you know I'm failing,

Won't you,
Take me,
From this place I'm drowning,

Every day's the same,
Nothing left to gain,
Holds the fortune and the fame.
(And it drove the girl insane).

Push those thoughts away,
Drugs and drinking every day,
She can barely hide her pain.
Track Name: Self Preservation
(It's always the same,
I run to pick you up, you need my help or not.)

[It's always the same,
You run to help me up, don't need a pick me up.]

(It's always the same,
I'm sitting home alone, watching you all night long.)

[It's always the same,
We're looking eye to eye, maybe it's right this time.)

(Ooo...)
[I'm gonna take a shot, will you be mine or not,
Ooo...]
(We're really falling now, I can't remember how.)

[Nothing's gonna change,
I run to pick you up, and I pretend I'm tough.]

(Nothing's gonna change,
And you pretend you're tough, the road is getting rough.)

[Nothing's gonna change,
Our words are set in stone, about to be made known.]

(Nothing's gonna change,
We're marked by passing light, everything's wrong and right.)

(Ooo...)
[I lost before the start, no time to ace the part.]
(I only aim to please, I killed all casualties.)

Ooo...

(I run to pick you up,)
[And you pretend you're tough,]
(I'm sitting home alone,)
Words are set in stone.
Track Name: Throwing Bricks (Florence + the Machine Cover)
I built a man made out of bricks
and lived inside his chest,
I beat my head against the walls
to make a heartbeat in his breast,

I smashed my fist against his ribs
to suck the air inside,
And swing by swing
and blow by blow,
I brought that man to life.

I built a man and cut his skin
and lived inside his heart,
I pumped it with my fingertips
and loved it from the start,

And with every beat I gave him
a heartbeat of my own,
And filled his veins with the blood I had
'til his blood was my own.

Oh, I would build you up,
But we're not made of the same stuff.
And even though I knocked you down
you're so much stronger than me.

Oh, I would build you up,
But we're not made of the same stuff.
And even though I knocked you down
you're so much stronger than me.
Track Name: Closer
I held you close, you held me closer,
Before we're torn apart remember,
How it feels to hold each other,
It won't feel as good with another,
How long will you be gone?
How long will you be gone?
Oooh,
Oooh, along the coast,
You wanted what I wanted most,
Oooh, here comes the tide,
That drags away the other side.

A thousand swords could pierce my skin,
And I still would not feel a thing,
Except the flood of rushing waves,
Pulling me deeper every day,
How long have you been gone?
How long have you been gone?
Oooh,
Oooh, the burning rope,
Tied around my sickly throat,
Oooh, here comes the part,
Where I fall from my heavy heart.

How long have you been gone?
How long have you been gone?

Oooh, please hold me close,
Though you know you're second choice,
Oooh, please hold me tight,
And I might make it through the night.
Track Name: Vigil
I watched, you
walk, into the ocean, you
walked, into the ocean, I
watched you

walk, into the ocean, I
watched you,
walk into the ocean, I
watched you,

walk, into the ocean
blue, you watched
me, watching
you, as you

walked, into the ocean
blue, and I
walked, into the ocean
too



the water's cold,
it's cold as ice,
and I'm frozen,
and I'm frozen

I'm,
watching by the,
shore,
watching, wanting
more, more

walk, into the ocean,
you walked,
into the ocean, let's
walk, into the ocean,
I'll watch you

walk, into the ocean,
we'll walk, into the ocean,
let's walk,
let's walk...

(I'd try for love,
I'd cry for love,
I'd die for love,
I'd die)
