Track Name: Winter Haiku
All the ones that reign above will never stop us
I would walk through the deepest voids an endless abyss
So I may return to rest at your side

The shells have washed up on the shore of a beach
That now lays still
The brisk breeze howling brings a chill that will never end
Stand up and disappear
Your eyes hid the facts once
You thought I had the heard till death do us part

The vines have blossomed from the entrance on the gate
Where the dead lay still
The children are running from a game they will never win
Sit down and justify
My eyes tell the facts now
I thought you had the heart till death do us part
Track Name: Rebirth
I am still learning that I can be a hypocrite with advice
But let’s be honest I think your best bet would be to turn yourself around

Now you will have to take it for every second that it's worth
Now you will have to make it the day of your rebirth

This is the day of your rebirth

I am still learning what it means to practice what you preach
I don’t want to be your broken crutch that entices the weak

Now you will have to take it for every second that it's worth
Now you will have to make it the day of your rebirth

What a waste of wisdom
And now you'll have to wait
Shake this curse upon you
And soon you will see the day
Track Name: Secrets
People say words speak softer than action
But where does the incapable lie?
Actions don’t invite imagination
Perspective does not always shine

Who’s to say my voice whispers?
I'm stronger than those opposed
Who’s to say my voice whispers?
I'm stronger than those opposed to me

You can't hide tears

People should learn it takes one to know one
So don’t ever be out of reach
Sometimes love is non existent
So please don’t be afraid to speak

Who’s to say my voice whispers?
I'm stronger than those opposed
Who’s to say my voice whispers?
I'm stronger than those opposed to me

You can’t hide tears from your wandering eyes
We’ll live tonight
Track Name: Figure 8
You stared while I glanced with my so-called washed-out blue eyes
I’m not like the rest so will you please stop burning holes right through my chest
You see I don’t want to renew what I thought was mine
And you will never renew what you thought was yours

Do you like burning bridges that will lead you away?
See I never was the one that could understand
How such a young heart could not expand
My eyes have been open from day one
And you will never stop me because I’ve just begun

Will I ever be given the chance to rise above you?
Please give my tired eyes a rest and pay respect to
Because I know words I’ve spoke won’t translate
Your thought process resides because it’s trapped in a figure eight motion
Track Name: Worth the Change
Have you reached the end of the road now?
Well no one wanted to bring you down
They say you never really get what you pay for
But it might be worth the change to stick around

They say that I am passing a glass that's half full
Well maybe I'll return and knock it down
They say you never really get what you want now
So close your eyes and listen to the sound

Have you reached the end of the line?
I know you're trying to buy some time
But I never want to let you go
Close your eyes and listen to the sound

Sometimes you have to decide if you should let go
When others speak stand your ground
Sometimes little things can have an impact
Even when you're gone you'll be around

Have you reached the end of the line?
I know you're trying to buy some time
But I never want to let you go
I never want to let you go
Track Name: Repair and Retreat
I see that there is hope I won’t find you there
I know you’ll learn in time you cannot repair
The damage that was done but in the long run
I will find someone new to call my loved one

Now I must live on
Now that you are gone

I don’t want to be the one that missed out
No I don’t want to be the one that missed out

Please will you turn around and clear the air now
I hope the best for you but how can you just stand there?
Knowing what you have done but in the long run
You will find love again just not in this direction

You just need to know
You just need to grow
I don’t want to be the one that missed out
No I don’t want to be the one that missed out
Track Name: Light in This Room
I can’t wait to see the day
When I see that smile of yours
You sure know how
To light any room you walk into
Lately our love has carried shadows
And all my thoughts are short and frail
I hope you know
Our love has room to grow
Our love has room to grow

I’m not the one who lost the vision
I’m not the one who lost control

If I had to reverse time
When I was yours and you were mine
I sure would change
Reverse it again and let love stay
But now that our light has been laid to rest
Electricity escapes my one last breath
I hope you know
Our love had room to grow
Our love had room to grow

Would you please close your eyes and let me know how you feel
I’ve spent years traveling here and I don’t want to let our love waste now

I’m not the one who lost the vision
I’m not the one who lost control
Track Name: The Other Side
Please will you wake up?
Don’t play me for a fool
I know you can be strong
Looking past the break of dawn
Please open your eyes
You’re not quite on the other side

I never learned how to write
I never learned the words to say to you
The world would surely misalign
The birds would take flight
Never to return

Proceeding with your head down
The weight of mistakes can be cruel
It's not that you've done wrong
It's just that you can't go alone
You're not ready for goodbyes
You're not quite on the other side

I never learned how to write
I never learned the words to say to you
The world would surely misalign
The birds would take flight
Never to return

I never want to be concerned
I never want to have to learn
That you're not around
I want your voice to heard
I want our love to burn
Always and forever
Always to adore

Take a glance back
Take another drag off your cigarette
It still burns as I whisper through the smoke and ash
Track Name: Willows Around the Bend
The fields are open now
Willows around the bend
Shaded from the sun
The answers lie in my head
When a glimpse bled through
It makes you realize
Who you really are
To everyone around
You know I loved you
The clouds passing by
Make me transcend
The living. The dead.

It seems to me that I’ve gone.

Who are you to start again?
You left but you didn’t leave open

The clouds passing by
Make me transcend
The living. The dead.
Track Name: The Foundation
Gazing at the white dove with unsettling eyes
How he lays restless upon the cities cheap success
Oh we're going down
Unless one by one we can believe in what we've done
But I don't believe we're left with much
No I don't believe we're left with much

Glaring at his time piece with furrowed brows
Putting all of his faith into trivial claims
He won't admit their failing now
Clinging to beliefs that a ship never sinks
He can't resist the sirens sound
He believes he'll stay afloat
Do we ever believe we're going to drown?
Do we ever believe we're going to drown?

We built a foundation but now it has faded
We built a foundation but it has grown outdated
(My god what a world you love)

He can't resist the sirens sound
We believe we will stay afloat
Do you we ever believe we're going to drown?

We built a foundation but now it has faded
We built a foundation but it has grown outdated
