Track Name: St Helen
A woman that I knew had
Fire in her eyes
She said if I looked right at them
I might burn up alive
Blew on what was burning
As the embers died
I buried my face in them
As my cheeks turned to white

I don’t know which
Way the wind blew
But she spread like those
Soft seeds do
That’s how that forest
Burned as I walked right through

And there’s a mountain
That we climbed
As it stretched up higher my
Breath got light

She said they sleep for
What seems a hundred years
And in a single moment
Could make them disappear

I don’t know which
Way the wind blew
But she spread like those
Soft seeds do
That’s when that forest
Burned as I walked right through
Track Name: The Tide
Lying in an ocean room
Plated prison with a view
Painted windowless, obscure through
Still somewhere I look for you

Taken with what I take away
Placed within a place I cannot stay
Captured in what I’m capturing
Blinded, looking for a better way

A better way

I wish that the sea could sweep me away
Take me back to a better place
If only the sun could shine down its rays
And light up your soft face

10 tenured years since I’ve been home
The waves have broken in my pale bones
Muscle grizzled into stone
The weight I’m waiting for all along

If the sea was flat as a map
I’d have folded it and doubled back
Return to a place where I love you
I sit at sea level, soaking through
Track Name: Boxer
Each of them seems so strong
Tight grip and lights on
Like a church bell, broke ring
I could hear each pulse in us sing

With every hand I throw
No loving arms, not a home
Each gum left bent to bleed
Won’t cave, won’t lie underneath

I hear them hauling out
The skin that tends to hit the floor
Come here we’re going home
Come here we’re going home

I hear the crowd’s hum sigh
Left bare, the ropes are tied
Come here we’re going home
Come here we’re going home

We can see the same thing
Lips split, arms frayed
Black eyes and blue waves
Buckled statue, broke in a frame

I hear them hauling out
The skin that tends to hit the floor
Come here we’re going home
Come here we’re going home
Track Name: Equinox
(Oh I heard that she hit the ground running)

Hit a heat wave hard in her body
I heard she was looking for me
Moon grew cold as it cracked her memory
Oh its going, she hit the ground running

Cracked a kiss in her lips, took a hit
And I swore that it went, right, through me
By the time that it clicked in my hands as it ticked-
I heard that she hit the ground running

Oh she’s lost in time
In between the night and day
With no where or why
Lost in the sea of gray
Oh she tells me, where I’ll be
When I’m gone away

I count down and it almost destroyed me
Oh the days and the hours are haunting
She said that she is caught in the frequency
In a place where she cannot hear me

In a space between time and the place that I thought you’d be
All there is is a memory, there’s no room-- for a meaning
And someday you said that you could meet me
But the marker’s destroyed
There’s only a choice and a promise,
A place that I can’t see anymore

Oh she’s lost in time
In between the night and day
With no where or why
Lost in a sea of gray

Oh she’s lost in time
In between the light of day
In the black and white
Lost in a sea of change
Oh she tells me, where I’ll be
When I’m gone away
Track Name: Equinox II
Here they are, watch them lie
There's a season in your eyes
As they shift from red to white
I watched as it all began to die

Now in the solstice, the soil deep
People became like the leaves
Don’t go bury

When I saw you
I was certain you would leave me,
Left deserted in between
Our final equinox
It’s a hard fall
In our nature
I was told to
Break our fixture
In between our final equinox

There's a place where we go
And the lovers are leaving
And I remember things I was told
A season in hell
Of all we regret
Things I was told to forget

When I saw you
I was certain you would leave me,
Left deserted in between
Our final equinox
It’s a hard fall
In our nature
I was told to
Break our fixture
In between our final equinox

In our nature, the pattern expands
The rings contract and bloom
From the bulbs in our hands
And the harvest moon
Harvest and cull it all
Where once was love,
Now just the fall and
Outgrown from where we grew it all

When I saw you I was certain you would leave me,
Left deserted in between
Our final equinox
It’s a hard fall
In our nature
I was told to
Break our fixture
In between our final equinox
Track Name: Medusa
Part the stone in me
Hollow wretch I`ll be
I`ll meet you at a climb
Shell out this skin of mine

Her silhouette the room
Elusive on the move
I kept this stone of mine
We’ll let the mountain slide

Wake me now I trust you`ll grow
I`ve been climbing ever since you've shown
Far from east I`ll let you go

The chill that rips through me
It slows my steady beat
Won’t let her weaken me
Won’t let her into me

A ladder for a price
I’m held between the vice
Won’t let her weaken me
Won’t let her see a thing.

Wake me now I trust you`ll grow
I`ve been climbing ever since you've shown
far from east I’ll let you go

Hear her hardened breath we lay
The ridge against my chest will play
Far from east I`ll let you go

Let us fall can’t bare the cold
Hardened lungs that fill the mold
Hear the weary man bestow
A age of ruin I`ll miss your more
Give my shallow heart a try
I`ll take yours then you take mine
We’ll climb together won’t fall behind
We’ll climb together won’t fall this time

Wake me now I trust you`ll grow
I`ve been climbing ever since you've shown
Far from east I`ll let you go

Hear her hardened breath we lay
The ridge against my chest will play
Far from east I`ll let you go
Track Name: Abraham
Oh dear father
Where are we going?
“Up to the mountain,
It must be.”

I
Held the ram’s head
Over my shoulders
Just like my children
In front of me

Don’t
Lose your step
The valley below
Is miles between
Our countries

Do you hear me?
And he’ll never come home again
My boy, my boy

Now
An opening
A sufferer’s offering
All that begets us
Listen to me

Do you hear me?
Do you hear me?

And he’ll never come home again
(Do you hear me)
My boy, my boy

You said I was beside you
You told me you carried me
(That you carried me
I carried on)
I don’t hear..
Track Name: Call To Arms
Lover are you lost?
We’ve been working this out
You must pay what you break
But oh at what cost

Is all this contrived,
Held up in the mind
Try to write the wrongs
But where have they left me this time?

And this love can’t stand
Trips and falls at your feet
Hold our hands against us
But then beg from your knees

Where’re we leading on
I’ve followed into the dark
Blinded at first light
Blowing into the spark

Oh are you the one?
In this great divide
Carry over what we’ve done
And tally up our time

Who will bridge the gap
I can’t see you at all
You say, take the leap
All I see is the fall

(In this call to arms)

You were my amuse
Meant, I have played the part
Oh it repeats on these strings
And then all restarts

If the heart were a harp
It would ask to be played
But the lovers are leaving
And they lie where they laid
Oh are you the one?
In this great divide
Carry over what we’ve done
And tally up our time

Who will bridge the gap
I can’t see you at all
You say, take the leap
All I see is the fall
Track Name: Sirens
Lying in bed, thoughts through my head
(You never wanted, you never wanted)
It's like I never meant anything (To you at all.)

And for your eyes and your heart
Well, they are miles apart
And from that I will wish you the best, with the rest
Cause they're less forgiving

All this torment, All because of you.

And I feel I've been burned, with no lesson learned.
(All we are), is the product of hate
The absence of faith, in a (life misleading)
You have turned in your wings, for immoral things
(And for What?)
This has cost me my soul, and it's taken it's toll
I'm broken at the seams.

You never wanted

Oh this feeling that I have, it just tears and takes my heart.
Well I guess you'd never know
You're Incapable, Inconsequence
Don't tell me how it is, It's a weight I just can't take.
I am falling apart, Well I am falling apart

I am falling apart, I have fallen apart

And I feel I've been burned, with no lesson learned.
(All we are), is the product of hate
The absence of faith, in a (life misleading)
You have turned in your wings, for immoral things
(And for What?)
This has cost me my soul, and it's taken it's toll
I'm broken at the seams.

All this progress, put down to rest
Split in two, we'll find our pieces
I will always, love you dearest
Find your way, now go and don't look back.

And I feel I've been burned, with no lesson learned.
(All we are), is the product of hate
The absence of faith, in a (life misleading)
You have turned in your wings, for immoral things
(And for what?)
This has cost me my soul, and it's taken it's toll
I'm broken at the seams
Track Name: Theseus
All you can see is all you can keep
Icarus my boy when I would sing you to sleep
Your cradle fell from the highest bough
It looks the same then as it does to me now

By the mountainside
We’ll say our goodbyes
At the crimson tail
And no one asks us why

Well you told me, fly as fast son
The wind will take you from my arms and
Test your hands, I'll see you again
By the setting sun or on the other end

No boat or fleet could take us from here
But Plato's birds have flocked so near
We'll lend their feathers and attempt the same feat
But the blue printed oceans will test our machine

At the mountainside
We’ll say our goodbyes
At the crimson tail
And no one asks us why

Well you told me, fly as fast son
The wind will take you from my arms and
Test your hands, I’ll see you again
By the setting sun or on the other end

Child I know that Theseus is dead
His ship is gone and
So the silver thread
Will not lead me back to you again
At the sea floor
I'll see you underneath it
