Track Name: Equinox
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
Track Name: Geist
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
Track Name: The Lucky Ones
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
Track Name: Within Your Bones
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
Track Name: Northern
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
Track Name: Fulcrum
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
Track Name: Daylight
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
Track Name: Aurora
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
Track Name: Sophistry
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
Track Name: Vespre
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…
Track Name: Scrapbooks
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
