Track Name: Study of the Inner Child
Reach for me,
Put your arms around me
Stay with me,
I don't want to be alone
Hold me, enfold me,
I just want to be somebody special
Track Name: Fukushima Butterfly
I felt the itch again today, it screamed to me beneath my skin
the patchwork mess of shiny scars did nothing to conceal the sin
I tried to bury everything, the liquid hate, the pain of steel
I couldn't soothe the itch again, it's something that I'll always feel

my eyes are turning inward and my tears have long run dry
my body's weak like paper and my wings refuse to fly
my pain is my salvation, and I cannot keep it in
I split the difference in the skin, and try soothe the itch again

I've not been on my own before, and maybe never will
My wings are trapped chitin, and my body weakens still
This weariness and emptiness will never go away
I'll stay and sooth the itch once more until my dying days
Track Name: Icarus
I know you, and i can feel you
your icy fingers freeze me
and i can't escape your hold

I don't want you
But I need you
and I can't stand you
but I won't leave

but if I slip through your fingers maybe I'll float away
but if I fall a little harder, maybe I'll be okay
if I slip through your fingers, maybe I'll fly away
If I fall a little harder, maybe I'll be okay

if I keep on looking forward, I can see the light
but it's awfully warm
If I keep on looking forward, I can see the light
but I'm falling fast
x2

but if i slip through your fingers maybe I'll drift away
if i fall a little harder, maybe I'll be okay
if I slip through your fingers, maybe I'll fly away
If I fall a little harder, maybe I'll be okay
