Track Name: Bring Me Back
I know it shows i never let go of what i hold
& you called me last night just to prove you were right on the phone
And you know
i took it for granted what was done i never wanted to be alone
Oh
I hope from a far you hear my voice calling out to your heart to bring me back to my place
I don't expect you to love me now but you do
If I've poisoned the river can i turn it back blue?
Ohh
You don't believe the words i speak
Im tired and I'm sick
I know theres a reason wild and true
I know theres a reason
Why i had to hurt you
Just to know what i want
When everything's a virtue that's won or lost
Its lost lost lost
Its lost
I hope from a far you hear my voice calling out to your heart to bring me back to my place
Track Name: Constant Dream
Sharp bark splinters
Hiding all the pain
The palm of the thief
Didn't feel the sting
Constant dream
Child your eyes remain
Born in late winter
Your will washed out the rain
Wait don't go
Wake alone
(You can hear the pond shake, the rattle of spring, ice beneath your heel cracked honeycomb)
Harsh barbed blizzard
Carries us away
Constant dream
Awake without a nam
Wake don't go
Wake alone
Holding on to the edge of my seat
I breathe in calm and steady i wait for relief
For the last time you follow me
Through a moon lit passage in the darkest of dreams
Believe in my words believe me
Wait don't go
Wake alone
Track Name: Eyes of the Prey
Id bet its nice to be home
Where your mind can be alone
Id bet its nice to feel
That someone who knows these roads is behind the wheel
Out past the city lights
Is where my body resides
Where the concrete ends
And the life depends on the sunlight to survive
Smoke in my lungs
The knots in my tongue
Its not safe to be here
And i cant believe what i hear
Out past the rotting hills
Where i first learned how to kill
I was told not to look
In the eyes of the prey as you take their life away
This damn place
Is programmed to
Erase each face
We're the ones
That relieve
We're the ones that deceive
Smoke in my lungs
The knots in my tongue
Its not safe to be here
And i cant believe what i hear
I bet its nice to be home
Where your mind can be alone
Track Name: The Fields
An echo through the woods caused a landslide
The twisted words blurred the black sky
Even if the tongue could speak for itself
Would you allow it
Fade away back into the fields
Where you allow it
I felt regret before the progress regressed and I've seen it before when i was dead on the floor caught in your eye
Don't go on word don't say a thing
When I'm alone I'm missing someone
Don't say a thing
I felt regret before the progress regressed and I've seen it before when i was dead on the floor caught in your eye
Track Name: Jagged Grin
Stronger now that i cut myself thin
Left my silver on the street
Buried our photos under concrete
Repeating axioms vicarious actions
I cant face this alone again
Cut loose lost you too
It pains my heart every day
To look in your lover's eyes while you walk away
From her life
From her light
Wilting strings
Left me relentless
The cold man in my heart
I cant stay out of the dark
Every day i awake wanting it all back again
But I've paid all my dues, my pocket stitched noose in time
Every day i awake wanting it all back again
My brightly kissed comrade this songs for you
every day i awake wanting it all back again
Track Name: Lost Silence
Im lonely
Only when i follow you
Roadside yelling to the curb
With nothing learned
To calculate the weight of lost silence
Kill the king question and move forward
Im caught on the conflict of never knowing
Where the road parts
And the river stopped flowing
Cold sparks burn the heart
Her shoulder
Cold than i ever knew
Waste nothing of your one sided view
The rattle of an empty old break
Its all you need
The monster has shown its teeth
Its time to come clean
Im caught on the conflict of never knowing
Where the road parts
And the river stopped flowing
Cold sparks burn the heart
Track Name: Distractions
Walk a mile just to get along and you turn around
Lost the sight of the one you love and you're all alone
Distractions held their place in my heart
But I'm not quite sure and I'm back to where i started
I could never stay because i know things will never change
I will always stray because i cant help that I'm afraid
Or hit me with the medicine that makes my eyes gleam
It takes me back to a memory a forgotten dream
Distractions held their place in my heart
But I'm not quite sure and I'm back to where i started
I could never stay because i know things will never change i will always stray because i cant help that I'm afraid
Track Name: Outlines
If i cant find it
Then when will i know
And if i cant fight it
Will you let me go
And blow with the wind
Oh
Are my actions stated
Or blurred outlines
When i feel overrated
You're here just in time
To love me
Oh
But i couldn't keep it
Safe with myself
What do i owe you
Now that i'm in love
Oh
Track Name: No Consequence
Light pouring through
No one to blame
Bad news came too soon
Nothing to say
What i thought was lost
I actually gained
My memories of you
Only a thought away
Is there no consequence
For the life they stole,
So effortlessly
Wounded songbird fly away home
A southern wind blows
No wisdom grows old
No wisdoms grows old
Why cant we bring you back
With all this love we have
Why cant we bring you back
There's so much more to be had
So much more
Is there no consequence
For the life they stole
So effortlessly
Track Name: Interlude
I know you're lost
I know you're scared
We're in this together
Track Name: Coils of Spring
Half dead insects rise into the air
Stale intentions wash me clean and bless me with your broken wings
Your stolen things
Keep my knees weak
Tell me the fortune in which i seek
If this is life and this is death
Then give me the reason i need
The expectations of the first page
The song you wanted begins to play
Giving in from the light to the grey
The coils of spring comfort my contorted body
Keep my knees weak
Tell me the fortune in which i seek
If this is life and this is death, then give me the reason i need to begin
Track Name: The Things I Forgot
One sparks the rest
The fire burns
And ill return to you
With bloody hands
A heart of fuel
I cant shake the feeling
Of loving someone so much
It makes you sick
It makes your head spin

Fall come too soon
The things i forgot
Come back to loom
Who would of thought
Id be the one
To follow you though
The setting sun

Movement slow
I gain control
I fall apart
Wishing i done different
Knowing this i let my loss of words sing
There wont be a guiding light
We're still so lost in the middle of the night

Fall come too soon
The things i forgot
Come back to loom
Who would of thought
I'd be the one
To follow you through
The setting sun
