Track Name: Winter's Sun
Wind blows though the leaves of grey
Calm breeze on a winters day
Frozen lake keeps out the light
Of a sun so cold but yet so bright

Lonely people wonder on
Towards a sea of white and grey
Their heads held towards the sky
It's bright blue and clear as glass
They can't seem to hold their gaze
The sun blurs and fades away
The sky falls onto the trees
And it all moves away from them

The trees rose above the ground
Reborn from ashes old
The sky flew back to the stars
To seal in the freezing air

The sun flashed above the clouds
A lit candle in the sky
It lights up the scenery
Valley low, and mountain high
The snow melts into the ground
The grass grows from dust and earth
The people turn around to see
The cold sun begin to speak

(The rest is improvised )
Track Name: Andromeda
Staring upward to the sky
I pray that she'll fix her healing eye
Upon me and help someone like I
Someone she never has known

And though you do not renew
One for all but not for you
And now you cry out for you

Sacred night is ripe with power
I worsen with each passing hour
The fruit she once knew, dead and sour
No longer exists, I insist

And though you do not renew
One for all but not for you
And now you cry out for you

And though you do not renew
One for all but not for you
And now you cry out for you
Track Name: Sleepless
Today I
forgot
to breathe
Or open
my eyes
Today

And yet I
could feel
My skin
Unravel
Like roots
From dirt

Just let them
Stab me
Once more
I'll keep them
Alive
Today
Track Name: Vignette
I know you're here
Too far away for me to see
I heard your voice
Soft whispers float on air so free
The trees

Blue is the lake
Cold as the broken hearts you take
Sleeping around
Chasing the thrill you have not found

It's true
The lights have shown a better side of you
It won't be long before they see right through
Your looks and charm, they make a better you
Track Name: Fifth Highway
A calm state of solitude arrives
The muffled light will send myself to sleep
Head on glass, I feel my body slip
Suddenly I see through covered eyes
Oh memories
So dreamlike
Silk moonlight
It fades away when the air gets dry

Fading fast
Before
Before my head
The space
Between the
Along the fifth highway

Arriving home I feel a slight relief
Temporary slip of conscious me
Evening's turned to morning so quickly
I've got nothing to do, so I just sleep
Oh memories
So dreamlike
Silk moonlight
It fades away when the sound gets raw

Fading fast
Before
Before my head
The space
Between the
Along the fifth highway
Track Name: In Light of Recent Events
There's a book
With all the times
They mused me

Something about
The way it read
Confused me

Looking back
I try to see
It's clouded

Like Midas touch
It turns to gold
The Bounded ones


Where did the guardian go wrong
We were only out to hunt the headstrong
Then he grabbed and took a hold of perception


Obey
His every word
Our leader

Blindly and quietly
We changed
Our demeanour

In the woods
He led us to
Salvation

Perform
The ritual
His coronation


Where did the guardian go wrong
Friendly lies will hypnotize the headstrong
When did our minds part from question
How were we coaxed into deception
Track Name: Part 3
See his eyes bleed
A blueish haze
Fodder to
His surreal daze

In the last light
From the setting sun
Comes the burden
Born to all but one

See the old sun
Burning everyone
Reminds him
Of his isolation

Reaps the weak mind
Of all it's own
Soon you'll moan
His subconscious drone

And tired teachings
Have turned the tide
I'll see you all now
On the other side
So just look forward
And know your whims
He sinks for us now
So we can swim
Track Name: Devil at my Feet
And i can
Feel the weight
Of the world come down on me

It takes so long to breathe
When your heart falls out of time

It ain't easy now you know
I will follow you
Leaving us behind
Going to

And sleep is
All I need
But I'd rather stay awake

Try not to
Think about
All the things that worry you

But it's easy now I know
Still I worry
Leave it all behind
Going to

Write
A heartfelt song
About things
In your life
Force it out
Oh yeah
It never will come naturally
To me
