"Folds in Your Hands" as written by and Michael Angelakos....
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
I'm fine
I'll be fine until the morning comes
Then unmask me in the blistering sun

Oh, let me go
Just let me go
Just let me go
Or I'll
Burst in front of your eyes
Then collect myself from the ground

And when I go
And when I go
Just let me go
Like a light
Flickering out in the skies
Lost as fast as was found

Everything is easy when you've never had to choose
But the balance has shifted and we're forced to lose
Like the sun and the moon, I will circle you 'til you bloom
I will crush, I will maul, I will burn until I get to you

Lay low
Don't let me know when it's real
Will they quietly follow me here?
Take me as their own?

Now I will hold you I will keep you
I'll control my love
Until it folds in my hands
But I'll build it back to the top

Everything is easy when you've never had to choose
But the balance has shifted and we're forced to lose
Like the sun and the moon, I will circle you 'til you bloom
I will crush, I will maul, I will burn until I get to you

Feel it rain
We're alive
Feel it rain

    And I can't quite hear the last line exactly but I'm pretty sure it's a little different than what's listed here. Other than those minor points, good work OP.

    General Commentyeah - we're having a transcribing party over at my friend's house tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be able to fill out the missing songs on here. (keeping my fingers crossed). btw, this song is fricking amazing. I love the back-up harmonies, and the transition at 2:38 is absolutely perfect.
