Track Name: Lips Shut Tight
If our own eyes are
Inherently blind
Would we concede heaven is free
No unseemly fine?
If we could fathom
Our world from afar
Would we then listen
Finding that we are

All consumed by the fire
While those up high do require
All our
Lips shut tight and we don't speak

Nothing to hold up a candle
To see in the dark
And look up ahead where everyone says
That we've come so far
But who's really equal
And who's cashing in?
The head of the serpent
Hunting from within

But we won't run from the fire
When those up high will require
All our

Lips shut tight and we don't speak

Can't stop, we won't stop thinkin aloud
Can't stop, we won't stop speakin
Track Name: Love We Send
Time moves slowly
Ticking ever louder
Tell our stories
While counting every hour

With all we fear approaching
'Round the bend

At the altar
Watching every rerun
Sons and daughters
Reaching out for someone
Who's close to hold

'Cause all we fear approaching
'Round the bend
The storm draws near, encroaching
So love we send
Love we send
Track Name: Lonely
You got caught in the fever and the thrill
Of chasing a horizon
And how hard you've tried
To hold on to ghosts that deplete you inside
But when your deep red blood dries
You'll chase the next one
You'll chase the next one

Your lessons in chaos
Will make you feel at home
You're welcome to stay oblivious
But parting the curtain
Will pull you from your throne
And take from you all delirium
Strap in now
You're ready for the ride
The current will move you from inside
You'll soon learn to open up your eyes

"Please pull me up
From my grave
I'm lonely
And digging for I'm told
I'd find home
But silence grows
I'm lonely
I'm lonely"
Track Name: Light
You found your freefall
Under the gallows
You're touching your own skin
The skin that you're feeling ill within

You thought your home was here
But you couldn't be more wrong
And all that was held dear
To you did not belong
Now everything you feared
Is turning right to wrong
When the world turns its back on you baby
You lose the light
Does it appear on the other side?

Endearing and humble
You're showing good face while your feet will stumble
It's not like the movies
No screenplay to guide you through the reeds

You thought your home was here
But you couldn't be more wrong
And all that was held dear
To you did not belong
Now everything you feared
Is turning right to wrong
When the world turns its back on you baby
You lose the light
Does it appear on the other side?
