Track Name: Keep In Mind
I was always glancing up to find nothing in return

So I gave up on me before you could, before you could

Some die looking for a hand to hold but keep smiling

You'll realise you don't want this with me

Maybe I don't want this with me

Said we'd never let go but I'm the best liar I know

Buried in the ground now you decide to care

How are we to find North without a compass and without reference?

You either hate them or end up hating yourself, so be careful who you trust

The devil was an angel once and that's something I like to keep in mind when you enter my thoughts

You always leave me weak, you always leave me weak

And for far too long I've tried to fill this empty space with another face

And you have turned back into, into the girl of my dreams and it seems that this loneliness is here to stay

For far to long I've held my tongue, I can't remain

It's 3am and this alcohol tastes like the love I held for you

But no way

I don't want to be just another passenger on this road that leads to nowhere

And when I leave you will finally understand why these hurricanes have human names
Track Name: Old Wounds
Like the ocean I rise, like the ocean I rise again

Our bodies blacked out, it's just us standing against the tide, the salty ocean breeze

The salty ocean breeze, it carried us by

There must be more, there has to be something more in this life, in this world

As time ticks aways so do the people I love

The only parts of me left are these

We are so cold, so alone, just forgotten souls that are now alien to the world we used to know

The loneliness has set in from the sins of a lifetime and as time ticks away so do the people I love

The only parts of me left are these faded memories telling the stories of a life I once had

Have faith in me, just one more time, even though we're nothing

Nothing more than flesh and blood and bone

Old tattoos, telling the stories of a life I once had

Have faith in me, just one more time, even though we're nothing more than flesh and bone

The tide will wash us away

The tide will wash us away

The tide will wash us away

The tide will wash us away
Track Name: Life's Short
I've been here as long as I can remember, the mind drifts, experience bends, memories warp, the skin decays, their eyes degrade, their eyes degrade

No one can withstand the flow of the aeons, and it's said time is wasted on the young

What's time wasted if it's spend having fun?

Life's short

I've spent nights I wont remember anything more than that I, I had a good time

I'd say it's worth it, so pour one out to all those you've cared about

And I'm not proud of everything I've done but I refuse to live this life in regret

So I would rather have a good time than have nothing at all
Track Name: State
Leaving this earthly form, I'm going to sail away and I leave my form of frailty in your hands

Guard me with your life and I'll give you mine

Be the guidance back to my body

I'm going to a place that is not my own, to seek guidance, to meet myself in a new place that feels like home

Traversing miles with a thought, so connected, connected to every being

I am the bridge closing the divide, so stable under foot

You are the traveller and I will show you what you need to find

I am the bridge closing the divide

Emotions are powerful, shaping the form of a surrounding

I've merged with the light, she has shown me the way, so connected

When you find what you need to know, it's time for us to journey home

I need to leave this beautiful place, so I can be whole again

Your guidance pulls me back

I return to this earthly form, wiser than I was before
Track Name: Sleep Sight
From where I am sun drenched eyes can't see so clearly

Silhouettes and shadowy figures pace restlessly

Do they have purpose, have meaning or do they wonder recklessly?

Much like myself

Do I appear the same in their visions as they do in mine?

As they do, as they do in mine

From where I am, I see so clearly

Sleep sight, it has to be

Sleep sight, but dreams have always appeared clearer to me

Amongst movement, I seem to be stuck here amongst the spectres of my dreams

But if I'm in here why's nothing gone my way?

My sun drenched eyes see so clearly that these silhouettes have grown definition

So many faces that flow and I'm stuck here, not connecting to a single one

Floating though familiar streets again

When will a new road come into view?

I walk alone, along these worn down stones,

Surely when I wake I'll find a way

When I wake up, when I wake up, I'll be just fine, I'll be just fine

When I wake up, when I wake up, I'll be just fine, I'll be just fine

When I wake up, when I wake up or have I been alive this whole time?

This whole time
