Track Name: The Fall Back
free fall, delay, time stalls, decays
the fall back is gone, the fall back...gone

fall back, today is the day
today’s the day

straight line, detailed, end times prevail
the fall back is gone, the fall back...gone

fall back, today is the day
today’s the day
Track Name: Monday Is Here
a destiny derailed
bright sunshine, cold fall day
a future saved

Monday...is here…
lights fade away

Monday...is here…
lights fade away

down to the cold dark room
home...the time is now
Monday is here
lights fade away
Track Name: Silver Leaf
time moves on and summer is left behind
the happiness seen in pictures
was left in summer, was left behind
now time flows into autumn
with bright horizons so hard to find
a silver leaf blows in the cold fall wind
and jars a memory hidden inside

and just remember what should have been
and that the memories will never end

years will come and go
and time will try to wash away
reflections, once not important
but now with meaning, now so sublime
a brush of a hand, or a sparkle in an eye
a drive into the sunrise
please pull these memories from deep inside

and just remember what should have been
and that the memories will never end

there’s a line that connects time and place
Track Name: A Trade Out
trading out what time gives
fade...blank...

slow motion
Track Name: Blue
watch the time go by
the hours, they swallow
watch the skies, they die
no room for sorrow
we kiss, the air, the breeze
we fly tomorrow
and watch the stars explode
the past, we borrow

picture fades...scarlet days...

your skin becomes the air
our breath is shallow
a thousand blinking lights
pin prick of tomorrow
I will follow you
towards suns you swallowed
I am turning blue
in hope we follow

picture fades...scarlet days…
Track Name: The Rain
I close my eyes
then you take me down
I can feel you everywhere I am
this blackened sky
cuts through the lights
I've looked hard in every stinking corner

I close the door, to another room
the rain beats heavy on my windows

I've waited all my life
waited all this time
I've waited all my life for you

I close my eyes, to the sound of bombs
they're so loud, it shakes your broken mirrors

I've waited all my life
I've waited all this time
I've waited all my life for you
I've waited for the rain
waited everyday
I know how my life is killing you
Track Name: Bright Like Stars
towers...to the southwest
lights glare...bright like stars
to the southwest, through the haze
to the southwest
and just remember
what used to be and how it used to be
and how…

static...through the airwaves
white lights...bright like stars
through the airwaves, through the dark
through the airwaves
and just remember
what used to be and how it used to be
and how it used to be

bright like stars, bright like stars
what used to be…
how it used to be…

southwest...from the rooftop
lights flash...bright like stars
from the rooftop, through the trees
from the rooftop
and just remember
what used to be and how it used to be
and how…

late night...in the warm room
lights burn...bright like stars
in the warm room, eyes closed hard
in the warm room
and just remember
what used to be and how it used to be
and how it used to be

bright like stars, bright like stars
what used to be…
how it used to be…
Track Name: The Light Room
eyes in place
give me the time and I’ll try
love and hate
fading in time, the dream dies

I don’t dare and you say
we could take a train together
I don’t understand what you say…
forever and ever and ever

glance past the light room
peace is here
give me the time and I’ll try
forever and ever and ever and...

I don’t dare and you say
we could take a train together
I don’t understand what you say…
forever and ever and ever

we could take a train...
Track Name: Illuminate
in a vacant...blank space
a nowhere nothing...dead space
it’s fading…it’s fading...gone
it’s fading…it’s fading...gone...ignite

illuminate

from the nothing...sparks grow
a conscience reborn...lights glow
it’s fading…it’s fading...gone
it’s fading…it’s fading...gone...ignite

illuminate

sparks fade, sparks burn…illuminate…
time comes, time goes…
Track Name: A Ghost Ascends
a ghost ascends
not fair, this end
but the light is bright
and the light is clean

the day...is gone...

radiates
from vacant space
a shattered lost hope
a distant lost place

the day...is gone...
Track Name: Hiraeth
light in the hallway
draw me tomorrow
so much for headlights
escape and then follow
if you are the archer
I’ll be the arrow
we could be twin dreams
awake time and borrow

wonder what she says
when time stops the sorrow
dream of the subway
wings open and swallow
there was a bird once
she sang from the gallows
dreams are long dead
lay down there and wallow

with a little bit of time, I…
Track Name: Autumn Moon
I opened up the blinds again
and let the autumn moonlight in
to light the candles hanging from the sky
the mirrors on the walls reflect
the days I've lost, the years I've led
I'm walking through a million miles away

there's nothing in this world they say
that makes us happy anyway
I counted all the days that I have tried
I've looked through all the angles and
I questioned all the doubts I had
I realized there's nothing here for me
Track Name: The Only Way Through Is Out
off, far away
a crisp line, dulls, decays
a weakness takes hold
my spirit grows old
days turn to years
and years fall away
and the past grows so cold
I can’t remember much at all, much at all...

and I belong, home...and I belong
the only way through is out

now it’s just family
just my wife and my boy and me
and I want this to be
how he remembers this all
down the path, through the woods
then the field, to the house
it’s the place I belong
Mother I’m home
I am home...

and I belong,home...and I belong
the only way through is out...is out
