Track Name: Leap
Leap
by Rachel Oto

Stories are how we know this is
As far as the world goes
Let's make
A grand escape

Let's plant our left feet and push with
All force over the darkness
Step into the land we hope is

Beyond the rules
Beyond the rules they lay
I'll be a fool
I'll be a fool and push the boundaries

They're standing at the brink
We're further than the world thinks exists
Oh, I insist

We are out of their earthly reach
Here comes eternity
And all they've dreamed
And all we've seen by

Breaking the rules
Breaking the rules they lay
Breaking the rules
Breaking the rules they lay
I'll be a fool
I'll be a fool
I'll be a fool, break all the rules
And push the boundaries

Oh, how they fear the leap
Between the warmth of safety
And the sting of maybe
Oh, how they fear the deep
Dark abyss that keeps you and me
Far from everything they seem to

Stories

Stories are

Stories

Stories are all they know
Track Name: The Way We Are
The Way We Are
by Rachel Oto

Clockwork counting the notches
Numbered nicks in our spines
Hope the mechanisms makes our souls rise

Buttons trigger each motion
Tingles are tied up in wires
Flip of the switch and we hit all the marks on the line

But don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say

Tracks lead us to our stations
Fuel us up or we die
Tick of the tape fills our brains keeps us moving in time

There's not more than the humming
There's not more than the signs
Pull us along, pull us on, pull us through this live

But don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say

We were the diamonds in the sky
We were the dancing of the light
So much has changed with every trial
And how we feel it

Don't say

Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
We tried so hard and got this far
Don't say
Track Name: Cornered and Lines
Cornered and Lines
by Rachel Oto

All I see is killing me
All I know are edges that yell this is far as we go
But

Oh, there must be more
Oh, there must be more

All I feel
The cold of the shadows that fall from our wheels
All I hear is,
"Child the wild is something to fear
Keep to the form baby
Keep to the near
But

Oh, there must be more
Oh, there must be more
Oh, there must be more
Oh, there must be more

Keep to your corners and manage your lines
Nothing outside of these parallel sides
So stackable, stackable, laughable, stackable
Stack with the others
So stack-able, stack-able
Keep to your corners and manage your lie
Comfy and cozy with nothing outside
And we're stack-able, stack-able
laughable, trackable
Stack with the others and go, oh

Oh, there must be more
Oh, there must be more
Oh, there must be more
Oh, there must be more
Track Name: Run
Run
By Rachel Oto

Tales tell of glory
Just beyond the red
Wake my soul again

West winds whisper stories
Drafting me a brand new plan
Find my soul again
Find my soul again
Try my soul again

Away, over, up and out of where I stand
Onward to the end

Darkness, lies and horror
Binding me to what they said
Crack my soul again
Crack the world again
Crash the world again

Away, over, up and out of where I stand
Onward to the end
Away, a way waiting for my feet to land
Onward to the end

And I'll go
Yes, I'll go
Yeah, I'll go
Yes, I'll go

Away, a way waiting for my feet to land
Onward to the end

And I'll go
Yeah, I'll go
Yes, I'll go
Let me go
And I'll go
Yes, I'll go
