Equinox 02:20
She bares forth unto the grey The light of long-gone yesterdays And beckons near the thunderclouds, Her voice like softly falling rain What angel’s this, that led me here, To bloom anew beneath her grace And come once more from ‘neath the ground To leave my winters resting place? I think that I did see her there Along the solemn mountain plains And in the winds that moved the fields Before the sun had gone away Now in the spring she will be near To hold me in her warm embrace And in the autumn she will die To leave my bones in their decay

Geist 06:06
Sleep Sleep until your dreams are clean For sleep it brings The things that daylight leaves unseen And in my dream You opened your eyes And you did see The things that I Had locked away and hidden deep Clean is the mind That knows what is but Still is blind For close behind Follows sanity that is not kind So stay my Geist Call your crows And haunt these pines And at the end of this road there's a house All painted grey Haunted by the spectral fear of the dreams that we've betrayed But if you meet me halfway there There may be lights along the way To guide us to our promises That lie in disarray Dark is the night and Cold the day So here in the twilight I will remain

You were holding out For me to come around I saw the lightning before it struck Though the storm is over now The rubble’s still around And they all say this is love But I said no And they all say we’re the lucky ones And they all pray for the lucky ones But I don't want to be one of the lucky ones If this is love And I was looking out While you were burning down All of the bridges That we made I put the hammer to the nail And the coffin in the ground You were begging me to stay But I said no And they all say we’re the lucky ones And they all pray for the lucky ones But I don't want to be one of the lucky ones If this is love Drunken is desire but sober you will find me And men who play fire are bound to burn slowly Don't tell me that you know me Don't tell me that you love me And they all say we’re the lucky ones And they all pray for the lucky ones But I don't want to be one of the lucky ones

In In the light The pale sun it burns my skin And brings me back to life After After the night With the smell of you gone from my sheets Sleeping don't feel right And in the arms Of another Your smile's sweeter than it's ever been And he breathes deep to taste your skin Spread sweet And bright with sugar Laid on thick and spread down thin It makes you glow from deep within And the thing that I know best It is the throbbing of the night And the beat that I do walk to Is of the heart I left behind And it kills me to know That I am half of a whole And the other half of me Is something I'll no longer hold And I have seen The holy and the clean But you by far have put to test The things that I believe are best Like grenadine Red sweetness of my dreams Intoxicate, make me believe I was among the things you need And the thing that I know best It is the throbbing of the night And the beat that I do walk to Is of the heart I left behind And it kills me to know That I am half of a whole And the other half of me Is something I'll no longer hold It's overgrown Over rock and under stone All the love I used to know Is buried deep beneath the snow And so I'll find Some peace in my own mind But all the light that ebbs and flows It radiates within your bones And the thing that I know best It is the throbbing of the night And the beat that I do walk to Is of the heart I left behind And it kills me to know That I am half of a whole And the other half of me Is something I'll no longer hold

Northern 04:16
Meet me down by the water Bring your sack of bones and your throwing stones And we’ll build Skeletons in the dark And eyes they watch us from the forest For the woods below They team with ghosts That march to the beating of our hearts Breathe in breathe out Pay no mind to the demons that move from the south We're heading further north I don't doubt The lights that shine from above will be our path to fertile ground The night is knocking At the front door Of this decrepit house It's rotting out Yet it's all we've ever known And wolves they follow In the moonlight The wind it blows Through tired bones Always yearning for the light Breathe in breathe out Pay no mind to the demons that move from the south We're heading further north I don't doubt The lights that shine from above will be our path to fertile ground

Fulcrum 07:02
Salt tinges the air Knee-deep off the shore Far removed from a care It’s all happened before The warmth won’t last It’s never enough It feels temporary The cold will beat us down I can’t feel our heat. It’s buried deep beneath all the veneer Choke on your words The seasons pass by Push it all through your mind It’s not an act, they haven’t heard

Daylight 05:28
Funny to find you out here my love Now tell me why you’re walking this road alone The things you’ll find in the night are frightening But you don’t have to go in on your own And with a spark I’ll ignite this flame that is my love for you Funny how our paths would cross again Last time I saw those eyes I swore it was the end When we were young you made me believe in things that I still cannot see Like love and faith and loss and this life and what it means But with a spark I’ll ignite this flame that is my love for you I’d rather die than be alone And I'd rather go with you than face this all on my own You’re like a sunrise after a lifetime of the night and when I’m with you there’s nothing but the daylight You’re like the light of day I know that the years have gone by and I’ve seen the world turning from the day into the night And I remember the tears that were shed and the way that we fought and the way that we bled for each other Victims of a warring heart But then I remember the things that were ours and the words that you said when I held you in my arms Those are words that I will not forget I’d rather die than be alone And I'd rather go with you than face this all on my own You’re like a sunrise after a lifetime of the night And when I’m with you there’s nothing but the daylight You’re like the light of day

Aurora 05:11
I'd never seen the sun until I saw the fractals gleaming in your eyes In your eyes And I hadn't breathed a breath until You gave me your lungs to bring me back to life Back to life I'd give away the things I own I'd give away my very bones to see To see The things inside your golden mind The things that I could only wish to be Wish to be And under your sheets I'm not alone And under your skin it feels like home to me To me When I stole that kiss last New Year's Eve I didn't know my heart would bleed to be Your only weakness My blood It flows Into the ground beneath To grow the things that you and I will never see
9.
Sophistry 04:10
I saw my face At the bottom of a glass But it wasn't me who was looking back 'Cause I, I traded that face for a mask I knew the way Through hell and the black The blackness of night that hangs on my back But now Now I find myself lost I drew my name In blood on the map Near the compass that points to the north of the traps That I, I had laid for myself Now I can't see my face in the water And you are making a fool out of me We raised lambs that were bred for the slaughter And you are killing my humanity
10.
Vespre 05:34
A nameless space between the lines of auburn sun and starry skies As all that’s best of dark and bright she holds my hand into the night The raven calls, the end is near but I won’t shed a single tear ‘Cause from my chest there’s the beating of a drum And days to rest are an awful long time to come But I know I’ll be in your arms when it begins And who dare walk with beauty her among blood and fire and pain and fear? And who dare name the faceless grace that marks the beauty of this place? For dusk it brings the things we know of heaven high and hell below us So pay no mind to this scarecrow as I make my journey home And from my chest there’s the breaking of a heart One for the more two for the less So far to come but yet to start All’s at peace that’s in between daylights love and nights careening These broken bells are heaven sent to heart whose love is innocent And from my chest…

Scrapbooks 04:32
When darkness falls Down like the beating of a drum And the day is done Awaiting the wakening of the sun Don't feel alone my dear In the midst of this strange new place There is beauty here And it is with you always And the fear it subsides Feeling hearts beating with nothing to hide And days they go by With each waking moment I feel alive Still counting the days ‘Til they have all gone by And nothing's left but a memory And tattered pictures in scrapbooks Taken when we were young Will we go back to this place Or is this how it ends? A final parting of ways And the fear it subsides Feeling hearts beating with nothing to hide And days they go by With each waking moment I feel alive
