Track Name: Of Your Name
I am forever changed
In a breath
In the blink of an eye
Please don’t go back to sleep
Please don’t ever awaken
I will lay down my arms
I will fall right to the ground
I will sound the alarm
If it keeps you safe
Fast as you can
Run away, don’t look back
We are surrounded, holding the lines to keep you alive
First of your name
Hold on to your innocence
Once set in motion you’ll never have these moments back.
I awoke to a song and a word
When I opened my eyes I awoke to a face
I awoke to you
I’ll leave blood on the ground
Keep you safe, keep a smile on your face
I’ll leave blood on the ground
If it keeps you here
Fast as you can
Run away, don’t look back
We are surrounded, holding the lines to keep you alive
First of your name
Hold on to your innocence
Once set in motion you’ll never have these moments back.
Fast as you can
Run away, don’t look back
We are surrounded, holding the lines to keep you alive
First of your name
Hold on to your innocence
Once set in motion you’ll never have these moments back.
Track Name: False Senses
You enter right on cue, you always come running
The subtle violence of self and control
Hold out your arms and pull me in
Violent hearts silently searching
For a way to hold their breath
Long enough to cleanse all their sins
I tried to find the line, to leave something behind for you
A letter or a song
Remember the words
Hold out your arms and pull me in
Violent hearts silently searching
For a way to hold their breath
Long enough to cleanse all their sins
I once knew a wretched shell of a man
Awoken by something he could not explain
Forgiven the sins of his past
Pulled up from the floor and healed of his pain
And as he grew stronger he sang
Of beauty and love, forgiveness and grace
His foot on the throat of another
Who wanted the same, but wasn’t the same.
He wasn’t the same.
Track Name: Fires in the Fields
It’s on the tip of my tongue
I can’t remember the dream, it was elusive and fleeting
It’s on the tip of my tongue
I felt it slipping away; it left me searching for meaning
I am forever in love with things I can never let go of
I am the heart and the soul still to be found
One by one we find redemption
It’s in the air that you breathe
You never needed a thing, you never needed a reason
Always just out of reach
It left me gasping for air, left me staggered and bleeding
This is the way and the light
This is what I’ve only dreamt of
This is the end of all things never to be found
One by one we find redemption
We are fires in the fields
Severing the lines
Desperate to follow
We are trying to believe
Sing us back to sleep
Disparate and hollow
It’s on the tip of my tongue
I can’t remember the dream, it was elusive and fleeting
It’s on the tip of my tongue
I feel it slipping away, it left me searching for meaning
I am forever in love with things I can never let go of
I am the heart and the soul
Still to be found
Track Name: I Am
I am a dying fire
I am the dawn, received by your eyes
I am the tourniquet that saved your life
I am a man borne of a girl
I am a dream denied
I am the final breath of this life expired
I am
I am the fallen star
Burning every shadow fast into the earth
I am the rain that falls
To wash away this place
Wash away the world
And I can not be saved.
But I am not afraid.
Listen for the sound
This love will save us
Track Name: We Are The Same
Don’t look up. It’s not like you.
Turn and go back to your life
Don’t push back
Just believing will always be enough
You’ll fall down. You will feel this.
I promise that we’ll see it through.
Don’t lose hope.
Head down into it
You’ll never be the same
Never be the same.
All is quiet on this night
Mothers softly paralyze
Voices singing lullabies
Drifting back to me.
Why has everybody gone?
Falling back to sleep
Fighting every dream
Wars and silences collide
We never learned a thing
We never learned a thing
We are the future falling away
Ashes obscure the price that we paid
Falling asleep to never awake
We are the silence
We are the same
All is quiet on this night.
Mothers softly paralyze
Voices singing lullabies
Drifting back to me.
You’ll fall down. You will feel this.
I promise that we’ll see it through.
Don’t lose hope.
Head down into it
You’ll never be the same
Never be the same.
Track Name: The Dust of You
Fingers close around the dust of you
Breathe it in, never to forget
Lost underwater for a thousand years
Why you left,
I’ll never understand
It’s neverending
We crossed the ocean for a taste of it
Young and blind, we knew not what we did
All the sons and daughters of a thousand men
Disappeared.
I’ll never understand
It’s neverending
We’re so close now
My vision clears
A pale separation
Our innocence is poison thin
Drowning in the refrain
I dreamt of you, a better place
Caught by the arm extended
And I’m not scared of who I am
I hope that you understand.
Track Name: Wires
I awoke today to hear the news
Fast upon the wires that carry me to you
I am one of many weak and starving men
Burdened by my sins and buried by regrets
