Trap Door 06:09
Now this trap door's hitting me Now this trap door's hitting me Falling and falling and now there's no returning in Now this snapshot’s framing me Now this snapshot’s framing me Knowing and knowing and now there’s no more caving in Took a stand and let it be And threw away the key Drawn in, I can see There is no guarantee This will change “just us” to “we” Climb the mountain and set us free How has doubt not grow in me How has doubt not grow in me Grasping for reason You know it’s only found within
On The Fence 05:19
Riding nowhere, going somewhere It’s on the fence, I know It’s on your mind If they can fake it It’s because you’re blind Break it instead Crack it instead Hiding despair, talking warfare It’s on the fence, I know It’s on your mind If they can take it It’s because you’re blind Break it instead Crack it instead It feels so good to hear the lie They go to town, you are the clay You let them sing a dead song
Uncanny thoughts of a great beyond Wrap you in blankets to numb despair Hiding from the void now as it creeps Who’s trying to catch you before you fall Who’s left here waiting to hear your call All that now remains for you is the absurd Know how the trunk formed the tree Oh now you must grow Break away from the creed And when you try, see past the fear, the truth appears No meaning comforts you today There is no need at all to pray As you let the dread within you go Why cling at straws that break instead of sway Why set a clock to show forgotten days Don’t seek the wave to wash the fear away
Edge Of Time 04:43
The apathy of our time Is dragging us apart From what we wished Was still a part of us And nowhere to go And nothing more to do But sit and wait For the other shoe Reaching the edge of time in the starlight And our past isn’t free As we sit on the flaming tree And ghosts fly over me Carried in the wind No trumps to play We’re fish in a dead black sea We can see it It’s right there on tv And nowhere to go And nothing more to do But sit and wait For the other shoe In the valley the shadows grow And the dove is turning to a crow Burning power will burn us all And once we fall we can only crawl Waste time, waste it more Drain the well and ignore As I forsake, as I forsake Waiting for the tide to mark the spot of/for life It’s all we can do but look away Hold on The ride is done
Splintered 05:19
We’re tired of little things That grow until they sting We’re tired of finding blame And playing this old game I can finally hear the hiss I’m finding space to miss The void has got a name There’s nothing it can claim The past has been put aside And it’s what has set us free A splintered path is now All there is to see Can’t say Can't say Don't stay Don't stay There's not enough to keep Not enough to say you're sorry And hold on We hurt what can't be tamed The lost cause in our aim I can feel the past within Now the future can begin I can see the walls we’ve built To guard from what might hit We know it's not the same There is no one to blame We're apart but in this together As our edges now seem near
I float in the big space I float there going nowhere I'm not one to look back I'm not one to feel despair Connection was severed, now gone Attention is down Now anchor's gone away Now there's no reason to care Who's left in orbit now Who'll drop the anchor again In all this space there's room There's room for much to be said One link is all it takes To keep from being estranged
If everyone had nothing else to say Then silence would rise to swallow The stars you used to pray They don’t know better They prey on fools Who find comfort in empty vessels A cure that heals no soul Searching darkness that cannot answer A cure that heals no soul The chain of days and weeks broke as soon as the moon stood still And you want to believe them above all With their hands deep in your pocket You take part in the machine that marches backwards to the dawn Charlatans it spawns As you step in Step away You reached that pier at night when all was dead And jumped into the sky for one last save Your fear sailed ripples on the face of hope As the truth remains unanswered to this day What little comfort Gained from the tales Is lost when you wake up searching The bright light of today You don't need shepherds They feed on fear And drown the thirst of hopeful searchers With water from their wells And flood the gates of truth unanswered With water from their wells
Your Story 05:21
If you look at it from the side You see the views that sometimes hide What causes rainbows to turn grey Can be the simple things you say Follow truth this time Follow truth this time Elusive thoughts turned into action And grow reasons from memories The motive is pure Revealed in dried out petals Your story's set so you play it freely There are men who flee, there are men who fight, as they chose When you're falling down you abandon hope to let go Time for being More forgiving What you're given Is worth saving As lines are drawn in sinking sand You miss the chance by your own hand To do the right thing all along To make sure that you do belong Your story's yours, the path is too
Not My Light 07:12
Was it too fast, too soon Was it too real, to be true And I must have always known The chance is just too far away What were you searching for, that wasn't there Time went by so fast and changed the game Pulled over a blanket of illusion Ephemeral light, we say goodbye Good things come to those who wait But no one out there guarantees To find a light on a dead end street Don't know how Here and now One way road, wasting time A hard road ends now in empty hands Wishful thinking is not enough Next time keep eyes open wide Fooled, my dear You misled Thoughts unclear I misread The start - a mirror of the end We can't see now where it goes There's too much light to see the spark Can't let go Need to now
