Track Name: Hemlock
Well what do you mean this isn't what you wanted? Why didn't you just say it all along? After these years we were so perfect. How the hell did it go so wrong? You can cut me back down to size. It's alive inside. It's just a dream, let's try to make this right. Make this last. All we have is tonight. I always thought we'd be something more. Something more than just wasting time. That was never a part of your plan. Why should I make you a part of mine? Tell me all about your dreams. Am I still your knight, and you my queen? Should we say goodbye to all we've gone though? Or did you just say it all along? I guess these years weren't all that perfect, and what we felt was all so wrong. You can cut me back down to size. It's alive inside. It's just a dream, let's try to make this right. Make this last. It's just tonight. We were wrong all along.
Track Name: A Sky for Man
You got me following your footsteps. You took me places we could never have dreamed. Am I the only one that follows? Or is there another that you lead? 'Cause you cast a shadow that isn't your shade, and i'm beginning to lose hope, it'll be okay. I can feel your heart beat from miles away, miles away. I got my doubts but they still hold true. It's so hard to think when i'm too close to you, and I just don't know what to do. I expect this from you. Expect this from you. We'll you string me up; pull me around. If i'm not your plaything prove it to me now, and i'm so lost. Not sure of what i'm to do. Things never made sense until I fell for you. When you wander. When you see. There's something more to you and me. Can we trust our hearts, not our minds? Well you string me up; pull me around. If i'm not your plaything prove it to me now, and i'm so lost. Not sure what i'm to do. Things never made sense until I fell for you. So much reason with so many ways. What's your reason that you want me to stay? So unsure, confused, and away. Are we really worth the meaningless pain? Are we really worth each other's time?
Track Name: Onward (feat. Jake Wolf)
Things that will never happen are burned into mind. The weight of our madness grows more crushing. Malice... i'm so tangled in your webs. Hatred and mangled thoughts, are now my only friends. Prisoner of overwhelming fear. What I see is not real. What I see is not real. You begin to devour me. I am not who I say I am. I'm at war in my own head. Why can't I be someone you can love. Onward I will crawl.
Track Name: Kinetic
Effortless my intentions to stay statically the same. As everyday you knew my name and i'm not willing to change. Confidence... a force I cannot face. Routine is my safe space. While I regret all the time I waste. Do you see me fade away? Centrifugal. A typical Saturday night spent sleeping on somebody else's floor. There's a shadow in the doorway. I don't know where I am anymore. You can forget me come morning but I won't forgive your smile. A new pattern. A new symmetry. A new form of kinetic energy. Like death, no one to answer for my crimes. I'm alone. I've felt this way the whole time. We can move on but we can't stay the same. Irresponsible motives drive me insane. Is it probable that you left before you came. Words can't describe the feeling inside. I'm alive but I feel like I have died. Forces pushing on each side. My mind can't erase what you did inside that house when you weren't alone. Smoke signals out to all my friends at home. Premeditating murder, with my brother on the line. He says give it time. But i'm gonna let the night sky shine. Premeditating murder. And my brothers hands are tied. He says i'm out of time. Am I willing to let it shine?
Track Name: Grendel
Pick up the torch and move on. The beast at the end of the valley. Grab my throat and block the air. Silent screams. Take me there. Home away from home. I lost myself in the righteous one. Pick up the pieces and fall apart again. A war is raging on. Following on the miles ahead. Another station on the train. Back to reality we ride. A little monster inside told me the truth about it. The world is a lie and everyone inside will want to burn it to the ground. With the weight of every excuse. Don't take no for any answer you might have tonight. Fell asleep on the way back home. I missed my exit. I miss the others and especially my mother. The way she held me, told me it'd be get better. Racing the rest on my way back to you. I followed my own way but did I hold true? From the wild molded world above, to the cities of mankind built below. I will love you as if you were my own. From a faceless shadow to family back home. A little monster inside told me the truth about it. The world is a lie and everyone inside will want to burn it to the ground. With the weight of every excuse. Don't take no for any answer you might have tonight. Home won't make it better. Just accept yourself. Don't look back on your mistakes. Look forward to better days. Because they're not that far away.
Track Name: Aphelion
Meet me where the ocean ends. A star has fallen in again. Breaking through our atmospheres. A light to shine through all our fears. Feeling hope as we drift down. A depth beneath the ocean sound. Is this where I want my body found. Watch me fall to my knees. Before you I crawl. A smile twisted on your face. A voice called me back home. Left alone. Left alone. I stumbled to a jesters wish. A king me his fool. I did this for you. Truth said make a wish. I set myself on the ground before you. I wait for the hidden. We hide for the truth. We stand by. Welcome home my love. I set a fire for two. Believed inside these walls. A dream never come true. I fell for a demon. Whose eyes shined darker the further I fell, into a hell full of you.
Track Name: Family Tree
Words we spoke, you call me twisted. Call me wasted. Words I never meant to say. They're coming back to haunt me. Some things stay the same. Where were you. Mother I'm coming back, and tell Dad I missed him too. Wait for the cause to come clear. Before you try to change the facts. That family means we stick together. That means we don't turn our backs. Run now, into the sun. "Our" means this is our family tree. Speak up now if you want the truth because now i'm coming clean. Cause now i'm coming clean. The mask hidden under your nightstand that you put on every night. Can't change the fact that you're lying next to him. Because now you'll never be the same. You'll never see the world as I see. Because there's only so much room to be. So much room to breathe. Never was one for sitting through our photo albums. 20 years later and nothing's quite changed. Imagine that. We just don't dress the same, and we hold these words like we've never taken blame for any mistakes we've ever made. Run now, into the sun. "Our" means this is our family tree. Speak up now if you want the truth because now i'm coming clean. Here it is now, your family tree. Well the pictures are all scattered upon the opening. Fallen to the ground. Are you happy where you lay your head? Are you happy where you lay your head?
Track Name: Natural Fun
Picture perfect memories. Mirrors pointing at myself. TV's on but won't make sound. I miss all my friends. No time left to write, but i'm feeling pretty worthless. Go on take another round. Where are all my friends. People with a thousand faces staring right back at me. Anxious beings all around. Slowly drowning. Compensating for my faults. Thought I felt arms around me. Desperate people following. Slowly choking. We had many plans for the first week of summer, now it's nearly winter and i'm still alone. I moved away, but I promise room left on my floor for you to sleep. Don't hold your breath on us. This night will last forever. All of the friends we lost. And all we've left to lose. This is a celebration. This is all for you. Thank you for the time you spent being the best and true. These words alive, we will spend. Glass in the air, and held above me. We once were brave. Nothing stood in our way. But now it feels like that's all gone away. Golden masquerade played out in my head. When i'm feeling hopeless and completely upset I just remember the time when we said we'd fake this. Try not to break, kid. What did I do so wrong? You're like passively malignant ghosts. I'm not afraid of the dark. And I won't live with this split head anymore. We had many plans for the first week of summer. Now it's nearly winter and i'm still alone. I moved away, but I promise room left on my floor for you to sleep. Don't hold your breath on us. This night will last forever. All of the friends we lost and all we've left to lose. This is a celebration. This is all for you. Thank you for the time you spent being the best and true. These words alive, we will spend. Glass in the air, and held above me.
Track Name: My Heart At Home
There's no place like home. Where the Skyway meets the oceans coast. In your ivory tower alone. Will the ground welcome you. Don't trust a man with no intentions of coming down from his throne. Don't trust a man who makes a living off other people's gold. Please don't take me home. My heart is growing lonely. All I need is you beside me. Mother to a child and father to his daughter. Where will you be when i'm falling. Where do I put my head without a place to lay back. Sleep in silence 'til the morning. Mother to a child and father to his daughter. Where will you be when I'm falling down. Don't trust a lion who has nothing left to lose. Don't trust yourself. Use my excuse. The sun won't set in the eastern sky until I fix a new direction to take you. Please don't take me home. My heart is growing lonely. Please don't take me home. I know you'll be there when I open up the door to my place, to my home, to my soul. I know you'll be there when I open up the door to my place, to my home, to my soul. Please don't take me home. My heart is growing lonely. All I need is you beside me. Mother to a child and father to his daughter. Where will you be when i'm falling. Where do I put my head without a place to lay back. Sleep in silence 'til the morning. Mother to a child and father to his daughter. Where will you be when i'm falling down.
Track Name: Trapeze
A lot closer to me you stand, after all is said and broken. My emotions growing thin like tightropes and empty oceans. Who then would you be still. Because someone else is casting me away, to a world with skies of black and grey. And we all will die with laughter. As the cannon shoots at me. Lead yourself on you'll always have me. Breaking and folding every time you grin. A lot like heaven but a little bit harder to find. So divine. I think I lost myself in the crowd when the tent collapsed. You left first, me on your back. Now we're crawling underneath the stands. My heart racing, we fall to our knees. Tell the clowns please save me for last. Things are not all as they seem, all these animals have teeth. Lions chasing after cars. Oh captivity changed me. Ever wonder how we got here with no conscience. I've been blind no perception. Circus dreams with no direction. And we all will die with laughter. As the cannon shoots at me. Lead yourself on you'll always have me. Breaking and folding every time you grin. A lot like heaven but a little bit harder to find. So divine. I think I lost myself in the crowd when the tent collapsed. You left first, me on your back. Now we're crawling underneath the stands. My heart racing, we fall to our knees. Tell the clowns please. I feel empty, so lost and fleeting. A lot like heaven but a little bit harder to find.
Track Name: Sea Legs
Black ships edging on the horizon. From here we can only sink. I have a feeling that this will be over as soon as the captain speaks. Sinking deeper and deeper. Life seems to dwindle away. Then I find myself awakened on a shore so far astray. When you're walking for the first time, getting up won't bring you down. And when you take your very first swim, there won't always be someone around. I hope my message will find you, though my bottle might never be found. There's no place to go. I must swim to know. When will you find me. Pull me to safety. Do I sink or do I swim. All this time in the ocean. I'm growing fins. Growing fins. From the ocean painted blood red, to a burning orange sky above. When you're walking for the first time, getting up won't bring you down. And when you take your very first swim, there won't always be someone around. I hope my message will find you, though my bottle might never be found. Then you're swallowing water, when you're walking for the first time. Through the blue ocean deep. When you take your very first dive. I hope my message will find you, though my bottle might never be found.
