Still Wandering (2018 PTTN EP)

 Lyrics and Music By Crystal Casey (SOCAN) & Joseph Beaty (BMI) as Peeking Through The Noise


1. Gravity

The weight is getting so heavy
Collecting like rain in the mind.
All these thoughts just might drown me
And “perfect” is the sweetest of lies.

Slow down and breathe now
Everything will be fine.
Pain helps you know that
You’re alive,
Until it’s gone.

Slip lower, move slower and fall,
There’s only one way to go down.
As Time stands on your grave and points to the sky.
You’ll know how deep this has become

Feel the sound echoing on and on and on….
So blown out, blurred and pixelated
To the tune of a death crash wave
Bearing down on my heart

Slow down and breathe now
Everything will be fine.
Pain helps you know that
You’re alive,
Until it’s gone.

Slip lower, move slower and fall,
There’s only one way to go down.
As Time stands on your grave and points to the sky.
You’ll know how deep this has become

Slip lower, move slower and fall,
There’s only one way to go down.
As Time stands on your grave and points to the sky.
You’ll know how deep this has become
How deep this has become
How deep this has become
How deep this has become
How deep this has become
How deep this has become
How deep this has become…


2. Ravenous

There’s an itch I cannot scratch
There’s a beast I can’t hold back
Getting stronger as the night falls
Single minded and relentless
Pressure builds with no release.

And there’s no escaping now
It eats me from the inside out.

All my clothes on the floor
Vision is all a blur
No thought comes in between me… and…
My thirst for blood.


3. Land of Nothing

Cutting through a web of doubt,
Wasted all my faith in daydreams.
Burning up the town with you,
Doesn’t matter where we end up.
All cares into the wind
Where we can breathe again.
Look for a way that isn’t here.

Ohh—
Traveling light and low
Ohh—
Into the land of nothing

“Take another pill,” they said,
Doctor’s orders, stop the presses,
“Otherwise you’ll end up dead,
Feeling is a farce anyway.”
So much anxiety
To find the world still spinning
Once he quit riding with me.

Ohh—
Traveling light and low
Ohh—
Into the land of nothing

Tick tock time runs slow
When you can’t let go
They think I’m crazy
And they all can see
What’s inside of me
It’s in spite of me.

Ohh— (Faltering)
Traveling light and low
Ohh—
Into the land of nothing
Into the land of nothing


4. Stay the Course

Slowly
You consume me
You pull me in and I die.

Swallowed
Right into you
Destroy me with your eyes and I’ll worship your lies….

Free will
Is an illusion
Fate is master of this force
Free will
Is an illusion
All we can do is stay the course.

Crushing
The moonlit sea
It takes my breath and holds me down

Capsized
A dark dimension
What’s right is wrong and wrong is right….

Free will
Is an illusion
Fate is master of this force
Free will
Is an illusion
All we can do is stay the course.

Free will
Is an illusion
Fate is the master of this force
Free will
Is an illusion
All we can do is stay the course.
All we can do is stay the course.
All we can do is stay the course.


5. Unfold Into Oblivion

Lurking in the shadows
Ready to emerge
Truth is hurt and fragility
Love is how we endure

Down the hole just to understand
Draw a line to watch it blur
Gone, the reason we just power through
What else can we really do? But…

Hold on to everything
Bring it all in
Cold like the northern wind
Watch me unfold…. into Oblivion

Running down all the days I try to drive it deep into the core
Where it eats away at all that I’ve collected to create a world of my own
And I feel it in every space, I breathe it in everything I do
Love will save me, I’m sure

Guard it close, and keep it locked away
The truth is rarely ever told
They say that time, it changes everything
But this war is timeless and I can’t move past it, so…

Hold on to everything
Bring it all in
Cold like the northern wind
Watch me unfold…. into Oblivion
Into oblivion…
Into oblivion…


5. Still Wandering

Folding down
Flickering out
Slow burn
Sifting ash now

For what is left
For what is right
For what I might become
Under the moonlit sky

You told me
You’d hold me
Blood letting go of the dream

You told me
You’d hold me
Blood letting go of the dream

I’m still wandering
I’m still wandering
I’m still wandering
I’m still wandering….
