Track Name: Shadows
All I can do is hope
that when the time does come,
our love will become evermore,
our love will become intertwined.

Life comes with lashes.
The past in these pictures conjure cascades.
The burden is beautiful and cruel all the same way.

Trying to look forward to settle the tides,
but retention has been blessed with curious eyes.

All I can do is hope
that when the time does come,
our love will become evermore,
our love will become intertwined.

All I can do is hope.
Track Name: Solace
All around
There's people passing
Through the ground
With lives still lacking.
To time we're bound.
It's overwhelming.
What are we now?

Searching for
solace in
everyone around me.
The gravity of me weighs heavily.
A concept so profound.
So profound.

A calendar of calluses
was left hanging high.
Through a state of decay,
found a way to shed down a light.
Stop shoveling sand against the tides
for with distance comes a lacking.

Bygones have to bury themselves,
Hidden under six feet of unsettling doubt.
It's only once you stop searching you will find
Things thought to be left behind.

Searching for
solace in
everyone around me.
Searching for
solace and a sense of understanding.
Track Name: Daydreamer
I am but a ghost.
Follow me to hell,
I'll show you all the back roads.
I am but a scar
in the most inconvenient spot,
cover me with pride.

So many things
I'd like to tell you,
but just like a priest,
I keep to myself.
Cryptic verse in muddy waters,
as I pedal my bike.

A pounding anvil
in the morning
only to find hammers
being swung just for fun.
A daydreamer finds peace
as he wanders around, around, around.
Track Name: Higher & Dry
Nervous and pacing.
Try and relax.
Remembering not to
forget the past.
Searching for logic.
Unscrambling time.
Casting a shadow,
and not circling back.

To me you were
a vital spark,
a backbone in your time.
An indestructible infrastructure standing high.
To me you were
deprived of time,
a vital spark,
higher and dry.
Track Name: Could
Looking for a way out.
Feeling like a child now
as I watch you
situate from place to place,
as I stay ashamed of my embrace.
It's a steady pace, this decline,
but when I hit bottom,
I think I'll be fine.

If I could indulge you for a moment, I would.
If I could embrace you for a lifetime, I would.
If I could give you the love you deserve, I would.
If I could embrace you for a lifetime, I would.

Go, run away,
hide your pain and mask the shame.
You pretty being,
you're struggling to cease the sting.

And it's sickening,
the way this is haunting me.
Look at what I have become.
Look at what I have undone.
It's a steady pace, this decline,
but when I hit bottom,
I think I'll be fine.
Track Name: Mountains
How much higher
must I climb
to scale the mountains
in my mind?
If I ever
reach the top,
will I be fine
with what I've got?
Track Name: Whisper From Afar
Wish I could whisper from afar.
Long for your voice to flood my ears.
I wish I knew that you were fine,
my celestial dear.

I hope you'd filter out disgust.
Genetic stranglehold's I fear.
Toxins suffocate my liver,
my celestial dear.

Absence twisting at my bones.
If only you were right here.
Let me sing for you a song,
my celestial dear.

Wish I could whisper from afar.
Long for your voice to flood my ears.
I wish I knew that you were fine,
my celestial dear.
