Track Name: Disappear
Do you suppose that I could just disappear?
We’ve go to get a little light in here
You and I will be okay giving all to the flame
Oh, I feel weird
Some of our loss is the best in trying
Give a little up or let it overflow
Some of it hurts but I’m realizing
Every part I lose is a part worth letting go
Lately I’ve been burning much too slow, I know
The color of your eyes as they start to dull
Before you get too cold I’ll burn down, down, down
Still the part’s not crystal clear
But it fades into the air
I will be what I say as my body melts away
Oh, disappear
Some of our loss is the best in trying
Give a little up or let it overflow
Some of it hurts but I’m realizing
Every part I lose is a part worth letting go
Lately when I hold you in my arms, I’m home
The color in my eyes as they start to glow
I am afraid to be the kind of man I want to be
I am ashamed to say
But if you ask I will try to be
Track Name: The Fire
Keeping an eye on the brighter skies
We were all carved from blocks of ice
Shield ourselves from the sun and from the moon
A sheltered life is inopportune
We’ll break and feel the fire, falling underneath
We’ll break and feel the fire, falling under
Keeping an eye out for summer days
We will not hide as the darkness fades
Beyond the waves of a never-ending sea
We’ve got no rules or guarantees
We’ll break and feel the fire, falling underneath
We’ll break and feel the fire, falling under
It’s okay, it’s alright, You’re not alone
It’s okay, it’s alright
It’s okay, it’s alright, you’re not alone
It’s okay, it’s alright
We’ll break and feel the fire, falling underneath
We’ll break and feel the fire, falling under
Track Name: Headache
From our mouths we foam like beasts
We only smile to show our teeth
The river running down this line
Is a border between what’s yours and mine
All our lives we serve ourselves
It’s the common curse of might-as-well
For all we live to know is known
And all we seek to keep has flown away
Hold on dear love
Holding on is all we’ve got
Well, our bodies break before their time
A little strength is hard to find
But still I try
Well, surely now I do believe
That death is coming after me
This stone we push won’t move itself
It brings to mind the hand we’re dealt
So come on let’s all break this down
We’re still here, not in the ground
So come on lets all break this down
We’re still here, not in the ground
Well, our bodies break before their time
A little strength is hard to find
But still I try
Well, surely now I do believe
That death is coming after me
And if you leave hardly even knowing
the calm that’s found in the silver lining
Well, our bodies break before their time
A little strength is hard to find
But still I try
Well, surely now I do believe
That death is coming after me
Track Name: Paths
I’m haunted as history comes and culminates
We’re fed the things we’re taught to hate
Unwanted, the paths they carve to take us there
Is all politics and disrepair
I’ve seen it
We’ve grown accustomed to these stones
But life is more than shadow shows
I’m over it
It’s darker when the fire dies
But only covered by your eyes
It’s not too late
I’ll dig a hole or run away
Anything but what they say
The closest of calls, are we living too fast?
We built from the ground with the answers we have
We’re half sunk in mud, are we stuck in the past?
We’re still looking for signs, we’re still following maps
On our own
Carving out these paths, hoping that they last
Are we wasting our time filling cracks in the land?
We can’t bury what’s dead ‘til there’s dirt on our hands
On our own
Carving out these paths, hoping that they last
Track Name: The Wind and The Storm
So stop and pick up where we left off
And watch, there’s little room left for talk
Cover my eyes I’m told
But the bright turns my eyes to gold
We’re better off around the oak trees
In the park they’re watching over me
With their arms I’m gonna build me
A ship that will take me home
Cover my eyes I’m told
But the bright turns my eyes to gold
Come the wind and the storm
As the wills go to war on me
And my eyes unfold
As it comes to take hold
Track Name: Foreign Fields
Crossed over another state county line
There are more to pass
Than the ones we have left behind
Every city starts to look just like the same
Every street is only known by its little name
If I were hidden in the trees
Would you come looking there for me?
If all these mountains folded over
Would you come down digging deep?
Do you know just how far it feels now
When we are traveling these foreign fields?
My legs shake; bumpy lines on figure eights
My will breaks; one more just to think of you
If I were hidden in the trees
Would you come looking there for me?
If all these mountains folded over
Would you come down digging deep?
Track Name: Ivory Black
The less and less I sing as my skin begins to creep
For I recognize the truth about the permanence of me
We are paper-thin, we’re tearing at the folds
You’re living if you’re warm, but I'm just feeling
Cold, but I’m not dead
Carrying all these fears on wings of lead
Coursed between the cracks
Burn my bones to ivory black
The less and less I sing as my mouth begins to feed
On anything I find, and nothing that I need
The moment I am sure I am sure to second guess
I’ll never learn to fly if I never leave this nest
The moment I am sure I am sure to second guess
I’m not looking for a home
I’m just looking for some rest
And like a wooden frame with silk-screen for a hide
From my pores I recreate the same old stupid lies
And with my teeth and with my nails
I’ll scratch off my designs
Cold, but I’m not dead
Carrying all these fears on wings of lead
Coursed between the cracks
Burn my bones to ivory black
And like a wooden frame with silk-screen for a hide
From my pores I recreate the same old stupid lies
And with my teeth and with my nails
I’ll scratch off my designs
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
Just like the cause we were looking off too far
And we’re fading
I heard your words but the silence is preferred
We were left to blame for reasons unexplained
We’re still waiting, your voice still shaking
At the end of the line, who will wait for you there?
At the end of the line, who will wait for you there?
I won’t tear away now, I won’t be afraid
With what we’ve got we’re living or we’re not
So let’s not waste it
The dark that surrounds as we’re floating all around
Makes you question everything; what is up or down?
We’re still waiting, your voice still shaking
At the end of the line, who will wait for you there?
At the end of the line, who will wait for you there?
I won’t tear away now, I won’t be afraid

So long, we have left it now
So long, so far away
