Track Name: Palace Walls
truly something tasteless to behold
they'd give you up if you can be sold
and she fears through all the night
that something's on it's way
that chill in the air
that we are all just birds of prey
truly something tasteless to behold
if only you were worth your weight in gold

marbles in a fishbowl
put on stage for prying eyes
target through the looking glass
loved one went and lost her mind
someone shook the palace walls
there's something in the water, babe
the granite is about to crack
punished when we misbehave

oh what will she say now
nothing that she can back
oh what will she do next
nothing to keep her on track
oh which matters more
the wick or the flame
is it the picture
or is it the frame
we're caught up in an ordeal
is it what you say
or is it what you feel

marbles in a fishbowl
put on stage for prying eyes
target through the looking glass
loved one went and lost her mind
someone shook the palace walls
there's something in the water, babe
the granite is about to crack
punished when we misbehave
Track Name: Silhouette
you were such a fool for a time
the world had answered back in prose
when you questioned it with rhyme
so gather up your words and eat them
wash it down with swallowed pride
here's to hoping you don't choke
I feel neutral all the time

we could pretend the darkness is far behind
but that silhouette following trouble looks a lot like mine
we could pretend the damage is long since done
but if anybody's looking for a savior, I am not the one
Track Name: No Consequence
a face in place with paint is hazy
just as mother nature made me
as one layer rises
another falls to meet its pace, yeah
blank stare, blank slate

(stupid girl)
but what am I supposed to do?
close your eyes
how am I supposed to feel?
you'll be fine

and though I'm haunted by the things that I could not provide
it's less about the love and more about pride
and though I'm bothered by the things that I cannot undo
I fall apart sometimes, no consequence to you

dig a cavern, build a tunnel
bath in loose earth amongst the rubble
as one layer crumbles
another falls to meet its fate
break the stare, break the slate

(stupid girl)
but what am I supposed to say?
just walk away
but what am I supposed to leave behind?
yesterday

and though it's not about love
I fall apart
Track Name: Gemini
big eyes and a lonely heart
I know what you're feeling when the hurting starts
when you fall, I'm falling too
what we didn't know we were missing
is inside of you
and oh I know you better than you think I do
better than you know yourself now
no matter what you say we're going dancing
and nobody's gonna calm us down

hey brother gemini
boy when you cry
when your hands feel shaky
you are safe here
you don't have to fear
even though the world is hazy
take note, yeah
this is your time
kick off your shoes
it isn't a crime
to feel light every now and then
and if it doesn't work out we'll just try again

big eyes and a lonely heart
I know what you're feeling when the hurting starts
when you fall, I'm falling too
what we didn't know we were missing
is inside of you
and oh I know you better than you think I do
better than you know yourself now
no matter what you say we're going dancing
and nobody's gonna calm us down
Track Name: The Pedestal
how do we solve the riddle
of eliminating our old haunts
maybe I'll starve myself a little
and then I will look the way that I want
everybody wants to be whole again
but I think that I know better
there's a circle in the sand where the sinners stand
and now I'm floating without a tether

behold the mirrored mantle
when I look it isn't me I see
they glide across the marble floors
weightless on their polished feet
I've got a silver spoon, oh
but I can feel it choking me
somehow I know I still want more
I've been feeling incomplete

from high up on a pedestal
falsifying all this grace
there's someone underneath it all
I refuse to recognize her face
I've seen theses eyes somewhere before
they look at me most every day
in that hallowed mirrored mantle
I know not what I say
Track Name: Tapestry
and if you should call out
I wouldn't know how to react
if I give you my youth
I don't know if I'll ever get it back

oh please please please
yeah I give you my word
whatever you say, yeah that's what I've heard
you pull my leash
I'll answer the call
hang me up, I'm a tapestry on your wall

and in an effort to make
a good decision
I realize I compromise my position
oh, and you answer to no one
and I know its a lie when I say we're done
Track Name: Don't Touch Me
is it hunger, is it thirst
light on my feet, heavy handed
either way tonight, I feel cursed
is it vengence, is it refuge
either way, I'm gonna dance until my muscles ache
that's what I'll do

I'm a quitter
I've always been
but there is nothing you can say, nothing you can do
I'm gonna make this fucking room spin

and though I reach out sometimes
it doesn't mean I need to
and though you'll reach back to me
it doesn't mean I need you

we are liars
by cruel circumstance
but I feel honest in this place tonight when I dance
