Track Name: Something About A Dream
We sang together in peaceful harmony
Drink this poison you said, you said to me
We'll be okay tonight, you said, we'll be okay tonight

Left lucid and free after you drift away
As if love didn't live in me
And I can see
The more I dream the less I can feel and think

Break away from this world for one night
Then we can watch it all from the outside

Spent days in dazes suffocating like a
song without a note
And it's just a dream
And I'll wake
I'll be sick again...
Track Name: Damn Near Drowned
I'm going back
Back the way we came from
Surely you remember when we were here
It's so sweet to share these memories with you
It's so sweet...

Washed up about an hour ago
Forgetting everything I know
And I'll do it again if I have to, if I have to
The way I see it in my mind
The sea is met at shoreline

You came over the horizon
On the back of all this trial and error
And I know what I'm feeling
It's so real and I can't stop myself
From floating around and around and around
Your sunshine burns right through my core
I need you more now that...

Washed up about an hour ago
Forgetting everything I know
And I'll do it again if I have to, if I have to
The way I see it in my mind
The sea is met at shoreline
Track Name: Rain
Thunder has a dull sound through the walls of a prison
We're bruised and beaten at the mercy
Mercy of the wind
Tossed and shipwrecked by the waves

What's behind these scars?

Sunlight has a dull shine through crimson shades
Through the blinders we built ourselves
And the reason why we can't reach out for help
We can't reach out for help

You're not alone, look around
And let me lift you off your feet

You came to me when I was weakest
You cleansed me like the rain we speak of
The hope restored within my life and
The confidence within my right hand
Track Name: Drifting
Drifting now on with the flow of motion
Satisfied with where I am and where I'm going

Never question the direction that the wind blows

Thank the Earth, praise the sky
Gives us the wind that we can use to fly

Never question the direction that the wind blows
Or pass the test and collect the debts of ever onward, and send me onward
Track Name: Deaf Heaven
I'm losing but I'm still trying
And sometimes it feels like I'm dying
I'm awake but I don't feel conscious in this state of mind
I never thought I'd feel so lifeless
I didn't want it to be like this
Is this a nightmare I can't get out of
Please say it's true

Love is an empty room that I guise in cheap perfume
But I know there is more to it than this
Dim all the lights until you're blind to the emptiness

The love and the lust and the happiness I've given up always seem to come back to haunt me
The hurt and the hate and the anger you've put in me shows with every breath that I breathe now
I hope you know
You have me sitting here
Without a clue as to who or what I'm going to do next

Love is an empty room that I guise in cheap perfume
But I know there is more to it than this
Dim all the lights until you're blind to the emptiness
Track Name: Never Mind
I'm nothing more than another waste of breath
But now I can see things a little more clearly
And you'd smile and say no you're doing just fine
But I don't feel like I'm doing so well now, no

And I can't explain how I really feel
When I try words just seem to fail me

And I broke windows walls and all your trust
With spiteful selfish fits of my guilty conscience eating me and
I know it's not wrong to want to be happy
I know that you're gone and I don't really miss anything
Or the way that you would push me out of your arms and say

You are quite positively the last person I would expect to let go
"I hate you don't ever speak to me again cause I won't respond to your endless indecision, you fuck with my emotions"
And I'll admit that I did some things that I shouldn't have but I didn't mean to hurt you and I can't reach out to the arms that hold my anxiety

(Sorry to lay that on you)
("You should be")
Track Name: All That I Have Left
A spark within my mind
A will I can't outlast
Something burns inside me
Its source I cannot grasp
But in the end I know that
My heart is just as strong
As it that smooths and calms the sea
Please take me home

A flash before my eyes
Memory I can't erase
Breaking all my senses
I drift into my dreams
The confines of my soul
They close their iron doors
As I live in this fantasy
Please take me home

And let the treble lift me up into the sky
Floating with the airplanes and satellites
And I'll never turn away from the life that you gave me
Cause it's all that I have left
You're all that I have left
Track Name: A City In The Sea
If what I am is what I need to be
Then god send me to hell or please change me
Cause my feet are carving footprints in the sand
And my only hope is that the sea meets the land
Cause I'm so old now
And I'm so cold now
