Track Name: What If
Ivy roots taking hold
Of the dirt inside
I know where I have to go
Leave the cold

Lost in light
What if I would stay and
Inhale the glowing clouds of coal

Paralyzed paper skin
Fading haze inside
I gaze as I'm spiraling down
And disappear

Lost in light
What if I would stay and
Inhale the glowing clouds of coal

Drowned in light
What if I could stay and
Exhale the pale bleak clouds of chalk

Lost in light
I will stay
Glowing clouds
Track Name: Tangled
I try and tear off my skin
To reveal the spirit within
Our tears, both burning and cleansing

I'm tangled in your braided maze
You take my hand
And guide me to your untainted lips
Entangled bodies drowning in space

I try and help you across
To reveal what might have been lost
Our love, unique in perfection

I'm tangled in your braided maze
You take my hand
And guide me to your untainted lips
Entangled bodies drowning in tears

But I feel you slip away
So I hold on with all I've got
Cause I can't let you go
But the dying light
Inside your eyes
Drifts out of sight

But I feel you slip away
So I hold on with all I've got
Cause I can't let you go
But the dying light
Inside your eyes

It pulls me into your blackened heart
Entangled bodies drowning in tears

But I feel you slip away
I release my strangling grip
I have to let you go
Track Name: Precarious
Staring out the window
Waiting for the sun to set
As the sky awakens
I know what I'm supposed to do

I reach up high as I look at the sky
Trying to catch a falling star
But all I see is the moon and me
Precarious

Standing on the rooftop
Dreaming of the smile that makes you whole
As I open my eyes
I feel the wind rushing by

I float up high as I look at the sky
Trying to catch a falling star
But all I see is the moon and me
Precarious

I must have chaos within me
To give birth to a dancing star
Track Name: Lioness' Sunrise
You can't hide it
The hurt in your eyes
Don't cry, my dear
Just smile in tears

While shadows drown
My light rains down on you

The lioness' sunrise paints
Leaves of gold that sing your name
Adorning the blood stained sky
Wings reign high

You try to hide it
The pain in your voice
Don't speak, my love
Just scream in thought

While shadows drown
My light rains down on you

The lioness' sunrise paints
Leaves of gold that sing your name
Adorning the blood stained sky
Wings reign high while clouds entwine
And the ocean below
Reflects our tears through rain and snow
The lioness' sunrise awakens
Your light
Track Name: Am I Still Here
I remember I'd look into your eyes
Feeling part of me staring back

Am I still here?
I've disappeared

I remember your message in the sand
Washed away by our oceans' flood

We uncovered love's precious melody
Just to let it fade into silence

Colors fade and dissipate, am I still here?
Touches pale and gray unveils, lost with the tears
Colors fade and dissipate, am I still here?
Touches pale and gray unveils, I've disappeared
Track Name: Illuminate
Inside a sphere made of glass
Filled with a thick, black smoke
That burns the senses

Drifting out of mind

The starless ink in my veins
Darkening the eyes, hands and heart
Dissolving reason

Drifting out of mind

Softly resonate and shatter this confinement
Illuminate the mind's lack of faith
Gently stabilize, observing your reflection
Illuminate the mind's lack of faith

Shards pierce my eyes and cut my hands
My heart stops beating
Don't be scared and just let go
Let the current take you home

Tumbling down, spinning, floating up, drifting

Drifting out of mind

Softly resonate and shatter this confinement
Illuminate the mind's lack of faith
Gently stabilize, observing your reflection
Illuminate the mind's lack of faith
Track Name: Turquoise
Under a dimly lit sky
She quietly shimmers red

Mesmerizing time and space
With her innocence

Floating just above my graze
Drowning love and fading grace

When we caress and dance in air
I wonder if she'll stay

Tantalizing angel's smile,
My turquoise butterfly

Floating just above my graze
Drowning love and fading grace
Track Name: Let Me
Take my heart and let me breathe
Cause I want to believe
In my pale deceit and my gentle qualities
Let me be, just me

Feed me the cold blood of fear and despair

Take my hand and let me be
Cause I want them to see
My hollow eyes and gentle smile
Let me breathe and die

Feed me the blood of love and trust
Set me free

Love and trust
Set me free
Track Name: Reawaken
I bleed beneath the barren sand of sleep

Stars awaken as I gaze above
And life slowly fades to love
Reawakened, broken down to dust
I dissolve in all that is

I wither inside my brittle paper lie

Stars awaken as I gaze above
And life slowly fades to love
Reawakened, broken down to dust
I dissolve in all that is and ever was

The endless void
That tears me apart
Crushes my desires
The softened glow
Of the stars below
Is all I know

Pendulous, I calmly sway along
For this is who I am, who I am

Stars awaken as I gaze above
And life slowly fades to love
Reawakened, broken down to dust
I dissolve in all that is and ever was
