Track Name: But Then Again
You make me feel an emptiness I never knew was there
And that's fine by me
It was harder just to diagnose than it will be to cure
This malady
Of memory

You've got this funny way of stopping summer from ceasing
These nights alone with you burn on and on, fighting off the imminent, approaching dawn
But summer soon will burn the leaves
For autumn must come soon
And us: consume
But then again...

I know that it's been said before, but I feel it bears repeating
If only just for me
A mournful task it is to sombre break old ties
But we do it readily
"Sensibly"

You've got this funny way of stopping summer from ceasing
These nights alone with you burn on and on, fighting off the imminent, approaching dawn
But summer soon will burn the leaves
For autumn must come soon
And us: consume
But then again...
But then again...
But then again.
Track Name: Aware
Sunlight blinds the sleepless, the same as moonlights guides them
Open eyes oft fail to see, that which was once dreamed
But seeing clear, reality, makes footfall more determined
So burning eyes lead us frantically to where we're meant to be

I'm becoming so aware.
As I breathe in this oceanic air
to find that I
Can journey to sights: far beyond my view
and making it through...
making it through

The day is warm but overcast, the heat felt hides its face
The pain behind this broken glass, though refracted still reflects
Apprehension to believe, that the grass on this side is truly green
But for joy, what must be done? Kill the lights, seek the sun

I'm becoming so aware.
As I breathe in this oceanic air
to find that I
Can journey to sights: far beyond my view
and making it through...
making it through

These four walls provide some comfort
A lukewarm sense of control
But there is greater warmth to be found in a distant coast
I'll wade out to see

I'm becoming so aware.
As I breathe in this oceanic air
to find that I
Can journey to sights: far beyond my view
I've made it through.
Track Name: Even As You Turn
This gilded cage is mostly comfortable to me, It's now become my home.
But its gleam isn't what it used to be, at all, I feel that I should have known.
That this vapid gift of "security", has thrown my frame to atrophy.
Now the screams of insecurity, they swell, the closer I get to free

But as I slowly turn brittle, patinaed key, my legs fear the imminent release.
While here removed from reality, I've been able to feel such blissful peace.

The sight of shattered glass is most unbearable to me, desperation led a fool inside
With bloody fists and vacant gaze it's clear to see, his inability to fight the tide
The angry undertow has long since drawn him in, to fear, things that are and aren't there
Treading salt water now with patience running thin, his lungs are filled half water, half air

But as he slowly turns his face away from me, his story echoes true behind my eyes
His barely twilit reality, makes too clear, what I've long ago surmised

But as this world turns, its spin is hastening, this ghost and I return to fuse again
And if this is truly reality, I pray the fairytale begin
Track Name: Never Said Goodbye
We never said goodbye. Being born into darkness, you rushed toward the light.
I never saw you cry. If I had, I'd have held you and your demons would take flight.
And I never knew, just the hell that each day you were going through inside your brain
So please refrain, from diving too deep in your thoughts all alone (alone)

I should have seen it in your eyes. Silent stares can scream out more than sentences, and never will lie.
It's clear to see now, that night - I was never meant to leave, and to join the crowd
that left you anxious. I was meant to take your hand and be your guide, to help you escape this
lifeless feeling. It's hard to stay up on your feet when life has left you reeling.

How did I miss the weight in your embrace? I should have known it wasn't just the time or place. No, it was you.
Like smoke passing through outstretched fingers, I didn't understand just what your absence meant, and the pain that lingered
that my eyes couldn't see. I thought you'd live on forever, with branch of olive tree
But from that future you have strayed, and left me all alone without the chance to say...
