Track Name: Tranquility
Humility has taken me into the depths below the deep.
Cover me with words of heat, it’s minus three tranquility.
I was strong once. Would you believe I was strong once.
Track Name: Reality
Biding your time you think it’s coming near, its coming near.
Biting your tongue and tasting what it’s like to bleed.
Hold my hand then use it as a way to wipe your heart out.
It’s never clean, we were just a dream.

You talk down to me when you look at me. It’s your eyes they say everything.
All these years I thought you were mine, reality sinks you’re killing time.

Yesterday I knew you like a song in my head.
The beating kept repeating you, my daily nourishment.
Starving now, the song it seems is taking over louder.
And the hunger seems the theme of you and me.

Feeling hopeless to get it right, reality is I have tried.

Now I see through your weak disguise, the change is how I close your eyes.
Maybe someday you’ll see with mine and know just what you’ve done.

The change comes now severing me.
Track Name: Snowy London
Will you come back, to break my heart?
Cause once you’re in, you cut your way out.

You are the snow in the sky. You are the color I see in my mind.

It’s over but can we drag it out for old time’s sake? You stay like a coward’s rain.
London creeped into my dreams of you.

We can pretend that you love the way I am.
Won’t be that hard, you faked it this far.

I will get you back, to me, or just for all this god damn heartache.
Be honest with me. Be careful I’m fragile.
You hung me with hope.
Track Name: Beautiful Plaything
I found a beautiful plaything, the one that lives inside my head.
From now on I can never replace you,
cause you can never, ever, replace the dead.

Let’s play with your ego in cage.
I’m gonna ruff it all up till it kisses back now, baby.
Sit down, take it out.
Let me get a good look at it before we break it, baby.

Your words read “trouble”, baby.
I see now, but you’d think they’d put that in the fine print, baby.
So I wanted something fly.
That doesn’t mean I want to fall so hard it breaks me, baby.

Like a brick I fall quickly. Like a brick you build a wall, babe.
Like a brick aught to be, like a brick weighs down the feathers in your metaphorical broken wings.
Track Name: Over The Ice
The path is open to be feared, ocean like your eyes it makes me steer away.
The walls came down, the flesh exposed. Hardest thing to learn is let it go away.

Over the ice, waiting for the time, waiting for the fracture line.
Froze in the tide, carry me home.

It carries over on it’s own, memories sticking to the undertow again.
Should have known it all along, nothing here is ever carved in stone again.

There’s no home here.
Losing you is like fighting tides. I’m loving life while drowning too.
Track Name: Funeral of Eighty Days
Stalemate, a burden. A hunter’s still in learning.
Can you make wise of choice, do it with teeth?
Sidelined like any girl will make you happy.
Sometimes it’s harder to see, eyes so naïve.

You said you’d fight for me.

Memory so clever, holding on forever.
I am not grieving the dream that wants me see. Still I….

I’m mourning the day I finally surrender you.
To feel nothing here, it feels like the death of you.
The bridge here it’s burning, but I can still walk back to you.
Steady I stand, remembering all of you.

Dig deep to bury all the smiles you gave me.
Everything wants to climb out, releasing the hounds.
Memory knows better, nothing last forever.
I know I’m ready to bleed all over the dream. Still I….

I cannot save a world that’s closing upon itself.
I can be made of gold, it isn’t enough, it isn’t enough.
Sit and wait for it to be enough or to get on with my life.

I’m mourning today, I finally got over you.
I feel nothing here, it’s feels like the death of you.
The bridge here it’s burned down over a river of fools.
Nothing left to say. The funeral of eighty days.
Track Name: Untitled Lullaby
This leap of faith, of haste, and no grace, has become too far for me to estimate.
The answer said so very clear, but it’s fallen on deaf ears here.

Who are you to leave, holding everything? Who are you to stain me?
I can carry dreams across mountains of grief, but still I fall down at your feet.

It’s hard to sleep, I think of your eyes.
There’s so much here and you’re not satisfied.
If days were love I would live years and you would die off last year.

Something lingers beyond me. I am finding it’s hard to speak.
Only one way to rob me, so gather yourself and think. It’s time.
Grab knives ,grab fire, drive out this heart.
Look closely ,think cleanly, you can’t talk it back.
Let me go back and I’ll take what is mine. Erase the shadows at your feet.
Track Name: Convalescence Dawn
When the wind blows the darkness feels home.
It crawls up my body like bugs wanting honey and bites as it goes.
Say it’s intuition to what you cannot see.
They say it gets better the longer it’s there and I do not believe.

Collect the tear drops and freeze into ice and feed them to you.
Maybe they’ll melt into puddles inside and slowly drown you.

How can this be? Your plan cut my seams.
It’s hard to stay standing while wearing the shoes of the past on my feet.
Crawling back to something that I should not be.
I fail as a siren, I call like a crow who’s stuck in repeat.

A calm and quiet silent night. I hear my breath come back inside.

And I will find my own way back. And I will dance on failure’s back.
The dreaming is done. So clarity comes. Induce the convalescence dawn.
Wake me up, nothing is real here. Dress me up to feel like a girl here.
Open my eyes, living inside my diamond lullabies. I will be undone tonight.
Track Name: Consequential Halo
One by one, heart’s undone. Leaving none.
Once. Say it once. Upside down, get it out.

There’s no consequential halo, no darkness or no shadow. In retrospect all will be clear.
May only last a lifetime, the clock will never rewind. Accepting of the skin I’m in.
As we fly through the open doors of time.

Hold onto me. Feeling weak, incomplete.
Hold your breath. Stifling everything.

I can see clearly, the day wakes for you.
Heartfelt stories of days gone by, don’t mean a thing when you’re wondering why.
Track Name: Simple Life
I try to light the candle. But try as I might it doesn’t re-light and darkness shines.
Here I am back at the start without a purpose, without any spark, alone in the dark of your light.
I wanted a simple life

Maybe this time I’ll try not to cry and shut my eyes.
Even though I know it’s bursting with my blinding light.

Bring me the answer, say it all clear. Not wondering why you’re not here.
I wanted a simple life

Live for others and live for the days of waking to see your face again, and again.
And I live for comfort, the touch from your hand to feel it in my head, my heart and my hand.

Guess you didn’t really want that life.

Maybe this time I’ll say goodbye.
