Track Name: Starboard
Starboard!
Block the windows
Starboard!
Somebody block the windows

Does this need define me?
Does it seal me?
Can its space confine me?
Leave me be

Breathe in
One lungful at a time
If only I could name it

A fool's errand to know myself
A grand terror to put my trust in you

Drawn in by the current
Alone adrift the ocean,
It's not so bad
Given to its motion
Red on the horizon, following
Hunting down a phantom
This vessel has no ropes to help you aboard
Drowning in the current
Board up all the windows,
There's a storm ahead

Starboard!
Block the windows
Starboard!
Somebody block the windows

Just go away
Just draw me closer

Follow along, catch up to me
I don't know how long I can hold her
Follow along
Hurry along

If I could just find the questions
Maybe you'd know the answers
But I see clouds in the distance to you
Track Name: Like a Child (Bonus Track)
Flagpoles tinkering in a maze of pavement
Lights that strip the colors off
Cinder-blocks that listen
Windows watch the sorrow
and your words make hollow sounds

But from your mind they took a child
An assuming thing to pressure
And like a child you lost your mind
Just like a child

The chemicals that made you betrayed your expectations
Was it really there before?
Who you are won't matter when they're done with you
But you never knew her at all

But from your mind they took a child
Unassuming thing
To pressure
And like a child you lost your mind
Just like a child

Feel like you're breaking at their hands
Feel like they'll break you
It doesn't matter
Barbiturate your way back and
Make them so proud to call you their daughter
Fall back behind the veil again
Fall back to shadow
It doesn't matter
Feel like you're breaking at their hands
Feel like they'll break you into a man

But from your mind they took a child
And from your fear they brandished an iron
And with your trust they delivered a lie
They got deep inside to save you
