Track Name: The Flips - Chaos Is a Color
I had a dream I’m in the sand
Up to my neck I’m in a wasteland, wasteland
My naked body aches to breathe
I feel the pressure on my chest is caving in

Chaos is a lover and I share my bed
Fate is a summer gone straight to hell

I had a nightmare I was wrong
I hear your voice shouting I’m insane, insane
Each word a dagger in my side
Only to find you in the back of my broken mind

Chaos is a color I wear so well
Order is a sunburn that I want to show and tell

But I am as hollow as a vapid empty shell
I’m hung from the gallows so I have to fare thee well
Track Name: Pelafina - Float
Babe, stop talking, it’s time to go to sleep
I rolled over and let my hand feel out your heartbeat
It was much too fast so I breathed in your ear
Hoping that you’d calm down at last
There’s nothing wrong with you
There’s something wrong with me
That’s what everyone’s thinking
You’ve got your fidgety feet
And our cat stalks them like prey
And the image it creates in my head is of you dancing with anxiety


You’re not the only one
Fighting a battle you’ve already want
I know you want to consider it done
But you woke up today
(I woke up today)
At some point you said, “I’m okay enough to do this”
(I’m not okay, but I’ll be there for you)
I’ll be there for you


I close my eyes and I’m back to bed
But I can’t feel unless I’m collectively nervous
I’ve got a hundred million things in my head
That I’d let slip if I could
I cried in the shower to hide that I was weak
Your feelings were more important than I was to me
(A hundred million things I’d let slip if I could)
Get out of bed, get out of your head


You’re not the only one
Fighting a battle you’ve already want
I know you want to consider it done
But you woke up today
(I woke up today)
At some point you said, “I’m okay enough to do this”
(I’m not okay, but I’ll be there for you)
I’ll be there for you


We can try to float each other
But if we’re fighting for a shoulder to lean on
Then we both end up under
I’ll hurry up before you see right through me
I’ll hurry up before I see right through me
We can try to hold each other
But if we’re fighting for a shoulder to lean on
Then we both end up under
I’ll hurry up before you see right through me
I’ll hurry up before I see right through me
Run
What are you running away from, running away from?
Run
What are you running away from?
You’re running away from me
