Eve (Intro) 01:29
2.
Clarity 04:08
I’ve seen the mirrors on the floor of the sea Dreaming as one reflects the others on me Into infinity, they go willingly Clarity, left behind in the summer’s peace At my feet, lies my body so incomplete Somehow I have settled into the snow Where I feel the moonlight’s loneliness grow I will become alone, in the afterglow Clarity, left behind in the summer’s peace At my feet, lies my body so incomplete

Stay, align your vision with your pain from yesterday Take me in your arms and fade away, the mirror breaks I don’t want to be afraid Inside illumination Inside the hollow of my heart I wish I could make sense of the time that has dispersed Soon I’ll hit the switch and fold into the universe I don’t want to be afraid Inside illumination Inside the hollow of my heart In my mind you seek to feed your lies ~ that’s what I’m for There is nothing more, leave me in war I’ll wake to the fire I don’t want to be afraid Inside illumination Inside the hollow of my heart
4.
I felt our hesitation follow us into the world But in time, we were floating ~ lost in the sky, spinning love And when I look to see the ground There’s only emptiness around And then you shine your diamond eyes into my soul Bend the ivory clouds into a home Heal a hundred wounds against your touch At last, my heart resolves, so far away from the earth I know your dedication is an endless purity And my dear, I will always know ~ in your arms, I belong And then I look to see the ground & there’s only emptiness around And then you shine your diamond eyes into my soul Bend the ivory clouds into a home Heal a hundred wounds against your touch At last, my heart resolves, so far away from the earth

Why do I walk within a sunless day? Endlessly afraid Tied to something vague I’ll be slow to adjust the way I step Likely to forget Conciseness I kept Rise in tandem with all my softer dreams & fall to bravery The circles interweave I could only desire to kick back the fog To simply laugh it off To recognize my thoughts Saying goodbye one step at a time
6.
Days are slowing down, and I’m awakening The thunder in the ground, to say my name Watching as the blue in the sky turns into grey Something in the spring took my breath and ran away So you figured right I have been wanting something to change the way I see this life Then I could live with some kind of confidence “If I were to break you The game would over Where is the thrill in that?” I wish I could step out of this world & find something to trust on the other side I’d come back when I feel stranger still As I always do following divide Every thought immersed goes to try me I dreamt this kind of curse knows an end Call the way I break every time I feel alone Smoke has held my eyes longer than I could have known So you figured right I have forgotten where I can find the way I see this life Where is the feeling? How can I start again? I wish I could step out of this world & find something to trust on the other side I’d come back when I feel stranger still As I always do following divide

Silver 04:07
Where are the stars? I was told that nothing’s changed. Is that the truth? Would you lie to keep me sane? Am I alone? Faster I run, losing to the next in cue. It’s in your blood, nothing new.. a stunt in time Am I alone? Love will hold me in beauty Where it’s simple to lose You leave me in a wonder Replace your belief Whatever helps you sleep Where are the stars? I was told that nothing’s changed. Is that the truth? Would you lie to keep me sane? I am alone.

As Always 03:40
I look at the smile in the picture, but it’s not a memory, it’s a stranger to me Before I was dealt this arrangement, I lived in a lucid world, adolescent belief Alone I am weak to the breakers, they bring every column down in a reckless desire & when they drift away, they cover my face in a shadowed veil and leave me where I lay I sink into the mist to calm myself I listen to the doom A ritual I hold, but I still doubt what’s really happening Yeah I doubt that I could change a thing
9.
Pure 04:07
If I’m being true It’s only been about fifteen days now So it feels new When you run your hands through my hair Well, I haven’t felt this way in forever Still, I’m in a cloud Cos I can’t figure out what your move is When I am around I told you that I would overthink it all No matter what you had intended Know that I can’t swallow this fear I’ve seen it too many times No matter how beautiful You’ll still collapse into dust As we fall asleep You ask me questions no one ever has And I find it sweet Leave the TV on and turn to me Don’t think about the morning Know that I can’t swallow this fear I’ve seen it too many times No matter how beautiful You’ll still collapse into dust Just Be Pure, Alive, & Self Assured
10.
Flood 06:24
Courts of time will keep us lost & all we’ll know is that somehow We’ll meet where the grasslands touch the moonlit night I’ll follow the fires, you follow the lights Dressed in black the days will pass & with your grief the years unwind Counting on the oldest to find the furthest blue Buried in the winter, frozen beside you While all the warmth we know will try to fade into the flood, alone We’ll both hold onto the same ending, as we let go
