Track Name: The Fade
"The Fade" by Dane Petersen

Do you feel your chest break
when a ghost has taken what's inside
The Earth shakes
Are these the hidden signs
what our future looks like
Questioning everything
more & more although it's harder to breathe
It's harder to breathe
But at least I fucking know I'm living

Feeling like a slave
To society to something
Feeling every wave
as it hits me

Save me
Save me from myself, the fade
Though it hurts
take them instead
There are those who's eyes shine brighter

But I work at it everyday
I've got a family & friends & a life to live, you see
I guess I'm sorry that, to me, a piece of paper
doesn't take precedent over my human nature
And all we had left to free
were our minds
Liberated in time
Fuck what I came with, I'm seeking the truth
living with you

Save me
Save me from myself, the fade
Though it hurts
take them instead
There are those who's eyes shine brighter
Than mine, than mine
Those eyes

And I've grown tired at the sight of my own
I look so close at the world around
my mind continues to blow
Is it the first or last, we'll never know
I might be young but I've got something to show

Save me
Save me from myself, the fade
Though it hurts
take them instead
There are those who's eyes shine brighter
Than mine, than mine
Those eyes

Tell me I can't
Tell me It's out of my hands
Tell me to stop
But you know that I always had to
Track Name: Flee This Smallest City
"Flee This Smallest City" by Dane Petersen

Dwell here
in fear
Drown in your secret society
Your eyes are screaming
what you believe in
Your mouth's deceiving
Your fingers snap & you're just a lie to me

Flee
Flee this smallest city

Do the troubles first confronted in our youth
Follow us & keep us from the truth
Despite knowing darkness
I knew you
and it was only with me that I wish that you grew
No not I alone, for I'm of no significance
But everyone together, we define significance
Not your counterpart's impertinence
I'm sick of going over this
Deep down we're all connected
Constantly finding real feelings just to be rejected
Everybody's lives have been affected
& my heart has gone another direction

The split, the rift
The place we thought that we'd never be
And now you're constantly fleeing me
I guess sometimes we'll do anything
To find that feeling

Caught in the middle, you're caught in the middle
Communication itself is your enemy riddle

(Say Goodbye However You See Fit)

We're both leaving now
Nothing more to talk about
Flee this smallest city
Track Name: Dispel feat. Fabi Behnam
"Dispel" ft. Fabi Benham by Dane Petersen

Fold what you hold close
delicately & gently set it aside
For what you were fed while you were young
might not serve what you've become
I want to dispel false truth

Have we made a good impression
Are we your favorite contradiction
Since when did art involve a fucking election
I want a connection

(Fabi)
I've wasted ink enough
on hollow beauty
Raise my voice defend everyone else
But I can't find it in me to fend for myself
I will fend for myself

So raise your hands
break the seal
Show me how
Food for the thoughtless
Is this enough to talk about

So raise your hands
break the seal
Show me how

I'll pick at my scabs
Revisit my scars
Not for the mending & healing of hearts
but for applause

Have we made a good impression
Are we your favorite contradiction
Since when did art involve a fucking election
I want a connection

Fold what you hold close
delicately & gently set it aside
Track Name: Sink Swim x Compare/Contrast - Interlude (Question Everything)
These strings are wound with the best of me
Take our word question everything
Track Name: Compare/Contrast - Inference
"Inference" by Fabi Behnam

Cling to these words till you're buried in dirt. Swallow your pride, maybe you'll see their worth. Draw the line between light and where it burns. I've learned hate is just a love you can't infer.

These strings are wound with the best of me, they ring so tried and true. Shame that you consume the whole of me, I've seen the worst of me in you. Are you frightened yet? Are you picking at petals? I say when we end. Are you picking at petals tonight?

Thought I told you to wait, stand still and learn your place. Such a waste, ill go bury my bone, go bury my stake in the family name. 'Cause Im nothing but a rabid dog, and bad muts get put to sleep. You're nothing but a trigger and a gun, out back waiting silently for me.

These strings are wound with the best of me, they ring so tried and true. Shame that you consume the whole of me, I've seen the worst of me in you. Are you frightened yet? Are you picking at petals? I say when we end. Are you picking at petals tonight?

Enlightened roads can scare the marrow straight out of your bones. So lonely, you told me that I don't deserve to call this place a home. Still this bed frame rocks like a heartbeat in time with the clock, but now our stories are boring, your white dress is tainted with scarlet embroidering.
Track Name: Compare/Contrast - Porcelain Wings
"Porcelain Wings" by Fabi Behnam

Heaven forgive me, I've fallen from grace. Though I can still taste the wine on my lips, I've buried my faith. I've realized that you have not the time, and I have not the patience to look into her eyes and see only traces remain, how she praises your name. I know we haven't spoken much but I'm begging you, if I could just make you a deal, remove the concrete from her shoes. I know the price we pay and that we've all got dues, but if everyone's a bounty tell me who becomes an angel to you.

Fill my wings with lead, and leave my my feathers to burn. If this is time well spent, why are ashes all that I earn? If your example should teach us a lesson, then I promise that all that we've learned, is we should have spent time cutting corners, using fear as a means to be heard.

Time can learn to wait, cause I'm not giving you up that easily. Life is never late, but death is as early as sunrise, our afternoon's fate.

We've grown accustomed to the ticking, the heartbeats of a clock. Oh how it mocks me, oh how it mocks me.

Oh, the nerve we'll show. Take your love and go. 2x

Time can learn to wait, cause I'm not giving you up that easily. Life is never late, but death is as early as sunrise, our afternoon's fate.
Track Name: Compare/Contrast - Interpellation feat. Dane Petersen
"Interpellation" by Fabi Behnam

I can tell you're sick and tired, those crater eyes, they sell you out. But we're the lucky ones, and I have proof beyond reasonable doubt. Tell me all your dreams, do they lie in the cover of some magazine? Will every movie screen be graced by the presence of another desperate teen?

If you want your name in lights, lets see what you'd do in the dark. They may not take your life, but ill be damned if you leave with your heart.

Your heart beats are so dear to me. Blood like money flows, our scapegoat is your beauty, so young and naive. Darling if you shed your clothes, you'll never feel alone.

(Dane)
Worth so much more than a couple dollars safe in store. Wasted on some self dejecting whore, sex sells; we never knew better. Hearts skipping, mind tripping, words constantly ripping your consciousness apart.

You're still always wearing me thin.

Your heart beats are so dear to me. Blood like money flows, our scapegoat is your beauty, so young and naive. If you shed your clothes, you'll never feel alone.

We've traded souls for gold with no regret.
We've gambled love for lust on life's roulette.
We've taken grace in vain and soured notes.
We've cheapened everything that meant the most.
