Track Name: Prelude (Dejected Reform)
Layer your worth with marks
They ascertain to be true
To what they deem to be good and whole
Tuck away your good heart

Where lies your validation?
Amongst the tangled and lost
My rugged sound got caught up
In asymmetrical shit that don’t mean a thing

Disguise your true disposition
The sky still feels like his hands
On my face turned to colour
Before the waves crash into your dejected reform

Cloak your justifications
Atone for straying past the path
Marked with sharps that don’t make your skin peel away
And face space within your eyes

Relish your simplifications
The natural rasp of the night
Roaming far just to find
The answer was collecting dust in your mind

Hide your soul’s consumption
Cover investment with a shake and a switch
Of unintegral reaction to what feels right
Take a note and make it
Track Name: Tidal Mark
Tidal mark
Seaweed 'round rice
So I count
The hours the freckles
'Till it gets dark
Timbral timber
Are you watertight
Check your levels
Tidal mark
Seaweed 'round rice
So I count
The hours the freckles
'Till it gets dark
Timbral timber
Are you watertight
Check your levels

Anchor yourself
To whatever this is
I will take whatever this is
And you'll find your way
Amongst the murky and the mud
I will find a stick with which to measure whatever this is

Tidal mark
I like when it rains
Trickle through
Chasm and the gap
Still apart

Are these goosebumps on your forearm
Neither, neither

I like when it rains

Still apart
Are these goosebumps on your forearm
Neither, neither

Anchor yourself

I will take whatever this is
And you'll find your way
Amongst the murky and the mud
I will find a stick with which to measure whatever this is

Tidal marker, tidal marker

Track Name: Tasmania
Tasmania
Your winter is not bleak
You pour light into the gaps
Another city leaps
While we sleep

Tasmania
You don’t turn the other cheek
You spiral in the mid-morning sun
And dance your way through the harbour

So leave me here
With the cold reaching into my pockets
Leave me here
With Mount Wellington keeping score
Leave me here
With the Bass Strait breathing between us
Leave me here
Beneath the quiet insulation of the stars

Tasmania
Your winter is not bleak
You pour light into the gaps
Another city leaps
While we sleep

Tasmania
You don’t turn the other cheek
You spiral in the mid-morning sun
And dance your way through the harbour

So leave me here
With the cold reaching into my pockets
Leave me here
With Mount Wellington keeping score
Leave me here
With the Bass Strait breathing between us
Leave me here
Beneath the quiet insulation of the stars

Tasmania, Tasmania
Track Name: It's Raining Again
I read all about it
Between the lattice pattern on your face
And I saw the way you blinked before
You said her name

And in trees that once felt familiar
I feel a stranger to myself
And to them

And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again
And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again

Cliffs and orange peel
Conspire to make this feel real
So at 1:38 under the insulate
I try you on for size again

And in trees that once felt familiar
I feel a stranger to myself
And to them

And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again
And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again

And in trees that once felt familiar
I feel a stranger to myself
And to them

And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again
And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again
And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again

The sound rings louder than our doubts
I told myself that our time was out
And i’ll take my echo down to the sea
And i’ll drink in the resonance of your skin

And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again
And it’s raining again
Raining again
Raining again
Again
