Track Name: Onlooker in the Paediatric Wing
Little Tim, are you lost?
You didn't seem to come back
Gone for seven somethings, were
you playing with the stick man?

Head is burning, you will scream
But no-one drives the pain away
'cos you can't get rid of anything
when you're condemned at age eight.

I think he's coming, for you
Where will you lead the survivors?
I think he's hunting, for you.

▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅
▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅
▅▅▅▅▅▅, ooh ooh, ooh ooh.
Track Name: Coming Home
Transferred across the country
Missed all his friends too much, he
Never dreamed that he'd be coming home.

Left behind a pretty lover
He thought he wasn't good enough for
Put himself through being on his own.

'Cos he thought he'd escaped,
But is it too late--

Rumour of him, on the breeze
Fluttering like forest leaves,
The statues underneath the clock
Are all that he's got memories of
This dreamy town, well, he's a lot of it,
Possessions boxed, inside a closet
Brought a haunted man back to what he caused and left behind.

Brian, do you know what I've tried,
You left one day without goodbyes,
You changed your phone, you moved away
But I knew you'd be back someday

'Cos you thought you'd escaped
But I knew you'd miss this place
Your friends gave up the wait
Sarah never speaks your name--

Rumour of him, on the breeze
Fluttering like forest leaves,
The statues underneath the clock
Are all that he's got memories of
This dreamy town, well, he's a lot of it,
Possessions boxed, inside a closet
Brought a haunted man back to what he caused and left behind.

Brought a haunted man back to what he caused and left behind.
Track Name: Ode to a Relationship Based on Conflicting Emotions
I just saw the new video, after constantly refreshing
about six pages since Twitter updated
And it was pretty damn good.

I’ve gotta say that throughout season 3
Several entries have been leaving me crying
Like we all knew they would.

I don’t know about you guys, but I blame Tim
Because he and Jay have this whole protecting each other thing
Going on, but I’m still unsure
If either trust a stranger they ain’t trusted before.

I’m going meta, saying:
Goddamn Brotrinity,
Stop abusing your feels-causing ability
I’m going meta, with your series
Theories, analysis, another list
Of every frame in totheark’s response
Because Trosephim keep dragging me in
With understated nonchalance.

And the troyhasacamera channel is a useful tool
If you want a control-z for the nightmare fuel
But you’ve been warned, it’s pretty insane.

I don’t mean that in a joking way, it’s genuinely confusing
It’s mostly amusing, but it’s a bit sanity-reducing
Messes with your brain.

Anything is possible with a little jazz
You can shave if you really have to, and reluctantly thank
An array of production members that will cause us pain
In some way.

I’m going meta, saying:
Goddamn Brotrinity,
Stop abusing your feels-causing ability
I’m going meta, with your skits and
wits, a trio of charm
That I can’t seem to help but watch
Because Trosephim keep dragging me in
With understated nonchalance.

I bet right now, you’re watching the fandom blow up
But we’re actually
Kinda thankful
Really grateful that
Your ideas mature, but you never seem to want to grow up.

I’m going meta, saying:
Goddamn Brotrinity,
Stop abusing your feels-causing ability
I’m going meta, with your series
Theories, analysis, another list
Of every frame in totheark’s response
Because Trosephim keep dragging me in
With understated nonchalance.
Track Name: What Love Is
No mercy for a puppet
And no mercy from the hunter,
Cut the strings instead of getting me out of this tangle.

What I wouldn't give for
A way to go back to refuge
Instead of the rough ropes of capture, letting me dangle,
Over the edge.

I've gone over the edge, my friend
And I'm sorry,
I'm sorry
I let you
down.

No freedom for a soldier
And no disobeying orders,
Bruises on a broken neck from strangulation.

Pain sears through my mindset
Reminding me of my debt
Is living like this better than cranial exsanguination?

I've gone over the edge, my friend
And I'm sorry,
I'm sorry
'bout the answers I left you without.

Yeah, I'm sorry I let you down,
I'm sorry I skipped town,
but what good is sorry going to do now?
Maybe I'll die a tragic hero,
Sacrificed for someone else,
The best I can hope for,
I hope to high hell,
I should have burned those stupid tapes myself.

Cut the strings instead of getting me out of this tangle.

I've gone over the edge, my friend
And I'm sorry,
I'm sorry
I let you
down.

I've gone over the edge, my friend
And if it's too late for you, then it's
way too late for me now.
Track Name: rip-current
we’re falling down the pit
we’re slipping out of touch
yes, we are declining
but not by very much

how can we go further
when we’re already low
agonisingly slow
it’s the worst way to go

we’re being dragged under
we’re being dragged under
we’re being dragged under

when i say we

Track Name: Anchoring
There was a time when I wanted to stop, but I drew somebody in
And now they're drifting somewhere whilst I drift amongst my sin
I never meant to cause harm, only wanted simple truth
But now I must continue on, and see this whole thing through.

Another year has raged on but it's deeper than I thought
Time has passed in puzzles or a circle which has caught another
Lonely boy, then a lonely man, I wish I could help more
But we just end up hysterical, on a burnt, abandoned floor.

Change another tape, checking out again
Hit the road the same night, Jay, you'll stop running one day
Tim's the only thing, anchoring me here
I'm not giving in just yet, my dear
I haven't given in just yet.

I wanted to help, I badly did, but all those days are gone
And now my only mission is to somehow carry on
I tape another failure and I film into the night
I'm fueled by paranoia and the shadows in the corner of my eye.

Trying to escape, getting out again
Hit the road the same night, Jay, you'll stop running one day
Tim's the only thing, anchoring me here
I'm not giving in just yet, my dear
I haven't given in just yet.

I take your hand, say we've got to go, I never would have stopped,
But you told me to run and I can't tell if you are giving up
I thought I'd lost my only friend and didn't have a say,
That despair was overshadowed, when I watched you drive away.

Change another tape, checking out again
Hit the road the same night, Jay, you'll stop running one day
Jessica's the same, I'll find her someday
Hope is far away right now, but I think I'll be okay
Break another code, set your camera mode,
Viewing what the answer showed, and I see but I don't know
Crippled by the fear, of another year
Thinking about everything that's anchoring me here
I haven't given in just yet.

I haven't given in just yet.
