Track Name: Faust
When I see your face, you are two things of late
The graze and the gauze for the sake of me eating myself away

For all that I miss, you can keep this
My soul is bleached, just a blank canvas

When you've had enough, what's the basis for luck
He said throw your weight into it, but I don't weigh that much

Arms wide open, I'm coiled in you, the deathbed cries of (oh my love)
Won't look back in fear

Feel like I've been here before, when life becomes a blur
I paint a picture with words and cut my throat open with verbs
It chokes my throat and all I hold
My will breaks and begins to fold

When you've had enough, what's the basis for luck
He said throw your weight into it, but I don't weigh that much

See I'm the closest to you, and I've never felt so apart
Riddled in cancer, is my hand-me-down heart

These arms wide open (oh love)
I'm coiled in you (oh love)
The deathbed cries (oh love)
Tonight stay true

Arms wide open, I'm coiled in you, the deathbed cries of (oh my love)
Won't look back in fear
Track Name: Old Guard
We marched on, we march on

You plead with me to follow when you know that I can't
I just needed peace to understand my heart
To see what was in me, to see your solemn face
Heard your solemn stories in a solemn place

And I keep pushing to see
Just to test what's inside of me
And I keep driving to see
Just to test all that can be in me

But I changed my request when I saw your hips shake
When I felt your heart rupture through every mistake
I know I've become your favourite ghost
No longer on these waves of lost hope

Don't give up

An ocean of loss takes me once in awhile
And I drown in the failure so I just sink and smile
But I hope you're okay, I hope you're in love
Made peace with this life because this world is not enough
Though this bed is your own, I die in it most nights
Please open your jaws to lungs with no fight
This struggle wants my life, it's like it's life has become mine
Stop begging to have me on your lifeline

You plead with me to follow when you know that I can't
I just needed peace to understand my heart
To see what was in me, to see your solemn face
Heard your solemn stories in a solemn place

But I changed my request when I saw your hips shake
When I felt your heart rupture through every mistake
I know I've become your favourite ghost
No longer on these waves of lost hope
