Track Name: A Letter
The letters you have sent me, Have only just arrived
And now I am reminded of when you were alive
This weight in my chest falls once more,
With the parcel that fate had placed at my door,

It reads:

'You've captured my heart, and I miss you so much.
I wish there was a way, we could only just touch.
You were in my dream last night, and you told me this;
That "the past and the future meet in a kiss,
Where two eternities lock, where we co-exist
Where hope has been enveloped in a deep dull mist"

Through the glass the world is blank and stopped,
the bell jar has consumed me,
the bell jar has dropped.'

Hope are you there? I feel you around me.
You are in the air that I breathe, and the ocean consumes me.
I have been lost for years, since you have left,
and I wish I could have followed in your last breath.

I was selfish and I let you leave,
Without acknowledging, my heart you have weaved,
I hope that one day you can only forgive,
Because now, without you, it is hard to live.

Hope are you there? I feel you around me.
You are in the air that I breathe, and the ocean consumes me.
I have been lost for years, since you have left,
and I wish I could have followed in your last breath.

The bell jar has dropped.
Track Name: Outlooks
I used to be convinced I knew it all
In a world that's only meant for the same
I used to think it was all in my head
But there's two sides to me, and one's always dead

I play those games, I'd play that song
Waiting for someone to just come along
And show everyone's not like me
Stuck on a train that no one can see

No one can see...

It hurts to know, hurts to know everyone changes
And secretly judges like me
It hurts to know time waits for no one
Moving to the rythym we march to the end

I'm falling for no one
I believe in nothing
No hopes, No dreams
Leaves me lost at sea

Lost at sea...

Until the day I found the one thing,

Until the day I found the one thing that means something to me
Until the day I found another soul on this train
(I'm falling for no one, I believe in nothing
No hopes, no dreams, leaves me lost at sea)

Maybe it's time to change course
And her name is Hope
Track Name: Revival
The truth within these walls
Gave me security
Until my mind created
An imprisoned autonomy
As the gates slam shut behind me
The world opens up and swallows me whole
But I'll never look away
Until in death I find my home

But these walls are white,
And never offered any light on this situation
There's a solar eclipse that's cast a shadow
Am I the only one who knows?

The light, The light is shining through
But I don't understand...
There's a solar eclipse that's cast a shadow
Am I the only one who knows?

I'm lost in my head

And I'll never say
Give me reality
Cause reality is nothing to me
In dreams I lay
But I can't stay here
She calls my name
And I hear...

Wake up, Wake up,
You've been down for to long
Floating in and out of sanity
Losing yourself in a black sea
Wake up, Wake up,
You've been in your mind for to long
If you want this pain to end
You'll face the demons inside your head

I hear, I hear
Wake up, wake up
I'll redeem what I have lost

It's all I have

And I'll never say
Give me reality
Cause reality is nothing to me
In dreams I lay
But I can't stay here
She calls my name
And I hear...

Looking back
There was always
A rose in the dirt
A light in the dark
You gave up your life
to keep me alive
So I've come to know,
Not all angels need to show their halos

And I'll never say
Give me reality
Cause reality is nothing to me
In dreams I lay
But I can't stay here
She calls my name
And I hear...
Track Name: Wamsutta Ridge
Let go, you can't do this on your own
They're speaking lies in every tone, that we speak
Far from something we have once known
This place seems so close to home, yet so far away

Let's get out of here
Back to the heart of the life we've left behind
Never look back
Only forward but remember the times we've had

Looking back on everything
The truth lies on every wing that we float on
How could you sleep at night knowing
That you won't wake up

Let's get out of here
Back to the heart of the life we've left behind
Never look back
Only forward but remember the times we've had

Let go
(You can't do this on your own)

Let's get out of here
Back to the heart of the life we've left behind
Never look back
Only forward but remember the times we've had
Track Name: Forget Sunset
Broken your eyes,
Stare back at you
But this mirror wasn't made for one
You know that when they're here

Cause distance
Is damage
And these words
I can’t speak
Don’t fade away

Trust me I know
Things are changing
And I know
That I'll never fade from you

Second retake
You’re nervous now
The longer you wait you know that they'll
Grow farther away

Cause distance
Is damage
And these words
I can’t speak
Don’t fade away

Trust me I know
Things are changing
And I know
That I'll never fade from you
So forget the sunset
(It still looks faint to me)
We don't need anything
Just promise me I won’t walk alone

I would sing about our love
But it would hurt too much
Cause new love is gained
Only at someone’s loss

I believe in you
(This still looks faint to me)
I believe in you
(This still looks faint to me)

But I can't sing about this love
When all I know is the sun will set
And I can't sing about this love
When all I know is what we were
Track Name: Mending The Sea
She sits alone by the fire
While I stare blankly in the mirror
She’s sewing the sail, while I’m breaking the boat
And I don’t know, I just don’t know

And all I know is what I feel...

All I know, Is what I feel
And all I feel is starring back at me
I can't keep lieing to myself anymore
I can't keep pretending

She sits alone by the fire
While I stare blankly in the mirror
She’s sewing the sail, while I’m breaking the boat
And I don’t know, I just don’t know

She sits alone by the fire
While I stare blankly in the mirror
She’s sewing the sail, while I’m breaking the boat
And I’m failing, falling, and dying cause

Oceans are wide
And I don’t know if I can do this
Separation has never done its part
In building a chain

Cause it’s so tangible
This love, is it something we can rely on?
We know all the stories of
Deceit and Lust,

This structure will fall
Or is it strong enough
I closed so many roads
To end the pain and loss

But I’ve never been so honest before
Just the thought of you walking out the door
Should I speak my mind or with my heart?
Cause I can't tell the difference anymore

They began to co-exist
It was all so easy
Instead of miles, it was short walks apart
But how do I even start?

Who knew we would come this far?
To be placed even farther
You’re my world, And I won't let
The horizon take you from me now

No, these stitches you’ve sewn me
I’ll never forget
Cause these stitches are a symbol,
Of how you saved me

So If you go, And I stay
Promise you'll remember me
Cause ill always remeber…
Track Name: Silence The Sea
I never learned to apologize
But it’s no worse then your apathetic lies
Your plan hasn’t been slowed down yet
But the worst is yet to come

Can’t you see this?
Can’t you feel this?
All falling away with every day that goes by
Why do the blind the lead the blind

Of bad intentions, your eyes are tunnel visioned
If only you could see the world through my eyes
Only hearing the words that you want to hear
You can’t predict this coming
So silence the sea,
With your thoughts and reason
But natures unpredictable
Much like me

Like me…
Silence…
You’ll never know…

Analyzing and Criticizing
The strongest of opinions hold the weakest of hearts
So I move my pawn and wait for hours
To finally hear you agree,
“Check Mate”

Of bad intentions, your eyes are tunnel visioned
If only you could see the world through my eyes
Only hearing the words that you want to hear
You can’t predict this coming
So silence the sea,
With your thoughts and reason
But natures unpredictable
Much like me

I’m unpredicting, always changing
My intentions, just like you
You’ll never know, you see right through me
You’ll never know, I know more than you

Silence what you can’t keep quiet
You mean less and less to me
Track Name: Miles To Minutes
My eyes are weary,
From staring through mirrors
Searching my remains
Of an old changed face

Trying to recall
What I left and why
What have I done?
Oh what have I done

Carry us on
Take all the weight
From Miles to minutes
From the shore to this

Shipwreck of
Drowned out thoughts
That fall and crash
Like waves on me

I’m cold, and getting colder
Sinking in the sea
I’m numb from the distance
The guilt is killing me

If these letters
Are all we have
I’ll keep on writing
Till the ink runs dry

Cause I’m a wreck,
As I walk these streets alone
Beneath the lights that guide me home
I realize that this home is unknown to me

Carry us on
Take all this weight
From Miles to minutes
From the shore to this

Shipwreck of
Drowned out thoughts
That fall and crash
Like waves on me


Cause I never knew the dagger distance held
Until it took my heart and sold it to the waves
So far from the shoreline that I no longer wanted to know
If I could survive without you

So I’m coming home to you
I’m coming home for you

I didn’t know, never knew you
Sold your heart to the depths of blue
To an anchor that tore you apart
Oh, It tore me apart

But I believe, our hearts were much stronger
And found the currents to navigate
The oceans that split us in to
They split us in two for the last time

I didn't know never knew you...sold you heart too
I'm coming home to you
Track Name: Dear Hope, Never Let Us Part
Dear Hope, I promise that I'll
Hold my own, don't let us part again
Cause the conflict aroused
Beckoned me to fall into the sea

Like passion cut short
The fire spreads
Growing and feeding on us
Drawing the air out of everything

Tell me there's another way
The water's so tempting
Tell me there's another way
Tell me there's another way

Breathe in slowly
I'm right here

The more you know about this world
The angrier you'll become
So don't believe the words
But stay true to what’s at heart

Don't confuse fate with reason
Don't let anything destroy our Hope
Cause it's all we have left...

The clouds we walk are ever-changing
Until we find how simple it is
Track Name: Last Heartbeat
You returned to me so weak,
This radiation you kept now shows
And I can’t believe I never knew the pain you held
And I can’t believe I never knew while you were gone away

Breathe out candle
Breathe into me,

And I will never forget
The color that left your body
And I will never take anyone, or anything for granted again
We’re so fragile,

Breathe out candle,
Breathe into me
We’re so fragile
When will I loose my own?

So breathe out candle
When will I loose my own?

Hold on, just a little longer to me
I can’t find your heartbeat
Now I can’t find your heartbeat…
Track Name: In Memory
They say the wind makes you turn
when a moment suspends in time,
You see their pictures a memories affliction
The frames share the borders to another story...

These pages remain unwritten, ink less
But bound still tight by past powers
Like the fall of Rome denial saved me
The best it could for only so long

So ill keep pretending
And you'll keep explaining
Maybe it's time to finally let go
Of everything that reminds me of this...
Reminds me of...

Gravity, working in reverse
Seasons back when the leaves were changing
It's so beautiful, but something was missing
As a hole filled my chest and my lungs caved in
From the pure weight of my heart falling six feet back up

So ill keep pretending and you'll keep explaining
My head is spinning round and round me
I’m loosing grip on what’s real
And what’s a dream or false to me

So if heavens not real let me die in my sleep
So I can live in my dreams next to you

Because the sky has never held so much color
Since these years passed without you
The sky now holds so much more then
Average night tales, shooting stars,
And all the dreams now lost forever

Forgive me cause I'm
Slowly drowning without you with me

Slowly drowning without you with me
Track Name: Revelation 22:13
I am the beginning and the end
The first and the last
The Alpha And The Omega
Track Name: The Bell Jar
Where are you?

I'm losing sight in myself
All these lights are reflecting
Going through pyramids,
Distorting all colors now

They're tricking me with their shadows,
They're tricking me with their shadows.

I always saw this coming
But refused to take notice
That my solitude is a prescribed drug
That feeds my addiction

It makes the shadows,
resemble exacatly what I'm missing
It's not what I want, but It's what I need
And it's always the same thing.

It's been two years since the end
And I can't feel anything at all now
It's like a faulting nervous system
I touch but can't feel at all

They're morphing and changing
I can't help to feel your speaking to me
Are you speaking to me?

They're morphing and changing
They're more distinct and I can
Swear it's your shadow
Speak to me, Speak to me

I can't feel at all.

These thoughts, are the echo of a voice I should hear
But they dance in the headlights
I can hear your voice searching for something,
I'm searching for something myself

Cause I'm lost,
God I'm so lost
My eyes are backwards and my mind is dark
As the rain that fell that night
Behind black shades,

In the form of tears above your gravestone
All my fears hit me in that instant
As the blank faces around reflected myself like a mirror showing every drought-like crack,

Cause her body was taken away
And that same day I parted my own
Now I can't find the spark to this life,
No I can't find a reason to live

No reason,

I can't find meaning in anything
I can't find reason in anyone
I can't find meaning,
I can't find reason

The bell jar's falling on me.

Dear hope,
Can you hear me?
Dear hope,
Can you hear me?

You me me in my sorrow and redeemed all I had left
Until the sea separated everything like the sunsets in our heads
But the cancer in your chest refused the blood to reach your heart
And not a single day goes by I don't completely fall apart

I'm alone

Black thoughts, my mind was plagued
By the only light I knew,
Spilling out of me in so many colors I never had a chance
To calculate the rate of my sanity failing me day by day
So hope I call you one last time
To give me a sign or the end is mine

Breathe in slowly I'm right here
