Track Name: Horizon
You look like lipstick on a chalk outline,
Caution tape bracelets round your wrists,
Looking over the horizon of a steep decline,
Because you swear it's the new trend.
Well you can wear your noose just like a necklace
Or you can follow footprints of giants you can't see,
But the matching bruises on both our chests
Cause you to question your belief in safety.

So I hope you remember to think of me
Before you kiss that asphalt
When the road is burning for your skin.

I'll keep my body loose.
I'll stay relaxed and waiting
While yours is being overused
In you anticipating
The bend in the metal,
The break in the sky,
The warning your father gave you the day I arrived,
But you wouldn't listen.
We went for a ride.
I'm sorry I couldn't keep it inside the yellow lines.

Perfume and gasoline,
Burning incense for a holy cleanse.
Slow your breathing.
Hold it in.
Do you know what you're fighting against?

And there was a moment
Before the impact
When i saw everything again,
And i looked through the cracks that grew,
And I saw a piece of you,
Just long enough to see
There were cracks in you too
Track Name: The Found And Lost
Bone over bone turn around in you grave
Like you spun when you played at a much younger age
And they'd be so surprised cause you look just the same
Only difference is you've fallen out of your frame.

So i guess you'll never know
Where all the good things go
And i guess you'll never see
What's right in front of me.

Oh will it ever be silent?
Will it ever be dark enough to lose what we have found?

You don't know where you are so you kick at the walls
And the day you escape you start learning to walk
And you get so upset when you stumble and fall
but you'll learn its the same and means nothing at all.

Oh will it ever be silent?
Will it ever be dark enough to lose what we have found?
Oh if i ask you a question
And no body's around
Does it seek out an answer or fall to the ground?
Track Name: Sinking
When you walked through my wall
Didn't know it was possible
For both to take up the same space.
I didn't know your name
And when you looked my way
I couldn't even make out a face.
So dawn your white sheet
And bare all your teeth
So that i might not figure you out
But you sound like a child
When you cry from beneath
You're not frightening anyone now.

So touch my hand
Negate my atoms
Til we both just disappear.
This was always the plan.
Just let it happen.
They will never know we were here.

Thinking it out
Might not be the best option
For us to take right now.
You've been sinking
And i throw you life vests
To bail you out.
But sooner or later
The flood gates will cave
And you'll start thinking out loud.
When you do all the ghosts
In the room fill with rage
When they hear you calling them out.

So touch my hand
Negate my atoms
Til we both just disappear.
This was always the plan.
Just let it happen.
They will never know we were here.
This time the ship
Will go down with the captain
While you're watching from the peer.
It was always the plan.
Just let it happen.
Let it happen.

Don't waste my time if you're already gone.
Don't waste my time
Track Name: Wake Up
Holy ghost
As he spoke to me,
Leaned in close
And he didn't say anything.
I throw my fists against this post
And still insist I saw that ghost.

You suppose
You know most anything
Even though
You haven't seen anything at all.
You haven't seen anything at all.

And if I don't wake up tomorrow,
I'll pay back all the time I've borrowed
Like everyone around me has to do.
After everything there's nothing left to prove.
There is nothing left to hold on to.
There is nothing left to loose.

And if you listen carefully,
You can hear the planets as the turn
On their way back to where they were.
You can hear the planets as they turn.

And if I don't wake up tomorrow,
I'll pay back all the time I've borrowed
Like everyone around me has to do.
After everything there is nothing left to prove.
There's nothing left to prove.

And when you lay with the starlight
You're part of the sunshine
Track Name: Neverwinter
She doesn't want to be an artist.
She wants to be the art herself
And be the perfect inspiration
For a perfect someone else.

I can't stop you.
No, you're always on the move.
You can't resist the temptation
Of something new.
She wants to taste the air of a new state.
She wants to kiss the sun of a golden coast.

I stop you every time you try to go.

She wants to see the bigger picture
And hold this truth up close
That she will fly across the ocean
And feel the same on every coast.
But you can't escape creation
And the brush is in her hand
So she paints the empty spaces
And she starts to understand.

I stop you every time you try to go.
I hate you every time you tell me no.

Don't you ever get too tired
Of running round in circles
Chasing your own tail
And wondering where the time went.
Don't you ever get too tired.
