(V1) I set the stars to be bold and scarce I've turned the stones into grains of sand Then I snuffed it out, to prove that I could Then I made a sun, to undo everything I had done (Chor) The race against the day is the darkest thing that I've ever made (V2) Pay your dues, in a frozen sea Or spend another night cold and hungry Race around the streets with places to be Live it now and live it loud, this is it for you and me (Chor) But the race against the day Is the brightest thing that I've ever made (Bridge) I am one tired soul though my bones were bound to break The race against the day, is the darkest thing I've ever made
Sunrise 03:28
(V1) Oh I planted the seeds that were given to me I watched and prayed every night and day Every breath that I breathed, I breathed for you (Chor) That I tried, to deny all the instincts inside of me But I wont be swayed from my shameful behavior All my shameful behavior (V2) It sprang from the earth only to be returned All the words of a man, none of us ever knew He who has ears, let him hear, let him hear (Bridge) Blessed be the weeds Blessed be the thorns for keeping me off the ground
Perspective 03:44
(V1) I watch the rise and fall through a backlit screen or not at all my window into lives I never knew that could include me If I had been there too The further in I reside the maze that is my mind I am a wash of static pride (Chor) I've been biding my time inside What is it, that I've gained I ache to escape from this frame (V2) The deserts unfamiliar abundant neglect I must withdraw The concrete calls testing my resolve Boorish behavior It has led me here Once my life resides the swell dispersed by time I'll be a wash of static pride
Clouds 03:20
Estranged 03:30
The Old 03:36
Manic 03:18
Reiteration 03:43


Recorded in Nov 2015, New Jersey. Thank you to the Wright family. For never once complaining, after an entire week of hearing the same 10 songs on repeat. Thanks to champ the Labrador, for teaching me the true meaning of persistence. Thank you to Nick Wright for all time and effort he put into this thing. Thank you to Annie Baker, for supporting me. Even when it meant living out of a car for a few months. Thank you to the Daily family for all their hospitality.
