Track Name: We Wait
I am afraid I have wasted my time
We carry your words, we repeat every line
For your mask you keep, a filthy face, a dire need
We are beautiful worlds covered in raging sea
Track Name: Until the End
I was a child with too many thoughts
Haunted by all of the things that I wanted but
“Careful you’re only so strong
You’re made up of everything you choose to love”

I think I, I’ve wasted my time, oh
I’m afraid I have wasted my time
Our days are so short, and we spend them dying
These things have no use, we could leave them behind

Behind your eyes lies a turbulent sea
You think that you’re safe that you don’t to breathe
But the strength to move on is a treacherous one
Awakened and never appeased it will come

I think I, I’ve wasted my time, oh
I’m afraid I have wasted my time
Our days are so short, and we spend them dying
These things have no use, we could leave them behind

But I think I, I’ve wasted all my precious time
I’m afraid I have wasted my time
Our days are so short and we could spend them dying
Or leave this behind, we could leave this behind

I think I have wasted my time
Our days are so short and we could spend them dying
These things have no use, we could leave them behind
Track Name: A Brand New Thought
See the dark wrap around my neck
I’m reaching out I choose light instead
With no recall, no retrospect
I will retain, will keep my head

But now I ask
Do you have any more questions
You’ve been hurt, used
And manipulated

I can see it now
But in answer to the crowd
I bow my head and turn away
I don’t know what to say
You speak of heavy things
Of trust, and pain it brings
If you’d only let me help you
I’d do it in a heartbeat

But now I ask
Do you have any more questions
You’ve been hurt, used
And manipulated

I have seen it all
The rise, the hurt, the fall
But if I did not believe myself
Could I stand and sing for you
If not for money’s sake
Nor pride nor guilt nor shame
When you awake, you
Will see what I mean

A brand new thought in silence broke
Faith keeps alive the life it chokes
For there was life in the words he spoke
Faith keeps alive the life it chokes

For there was life in the words he spoke
Faith keeps alive the life it chokes
Track Name: Burdens Over Solitude
This is time, run away
Cuz you have nowhere to hide
You’ve been boxed into a corner
In the back of your mind
This is fear, hold your head
Cuz you have nothing to say
So you run away
So you run away

This is time, turn away
But you’ve nowhere to run
You are haunted every day
By all the things that you’ve done
You’re wasted on the promises
Of better things to come

We’re fools
Here I am holding on to you

This is time, look away
But you have nothing to find
You’ll have that noose around your neck
until the day that you die
You know the sirens sing
For you this time

We’re fools
Here I am holding on to you
We choose
Lovely burdens over solitude

What have, what have you left me?
Sing now “oh please let it breathe”
What have, what have you left me?
Sing now “oh please let it breathe”

We’re fools
Here I am holding on to you
We choose
Lovely burdens over solitude
Track Name: Endless
There were days when I could
Lift you on my shoulders
Comfort you inside my arms
You learned that love is endless
For you and all your demons
Love would keep you safe from harm
Tell me all the things you know
You embrace what you believe
About yourself and all your grief
But endless is the way you move

Read the signs
Hide away this time
Cuz I see the way you fall
After every single fight
When you feel the warmth leave
I hope you somehow find
It'll be ok
It'll be alright

These days you find you can't escape
The beast you kept inside its cage
Would manifest itself in ways
When you're alone you are afraid
But endless was the love I gave

Read the signs
Hide away this time
Cuz I see the way you fall
After every single fight
When you feel the warmth leave
I hope you somehow find
It'll be ok
It'll be alright

I'm falling to the same sound
The last time I looked down
But I get down on my knees and pray I'll come around
Though long gone are those days
You know I'll never let you down
Then I get down on my knees and pray I'll come around
Lean right, inside this castle is where you will find us
Reach inside, catch your breath, jump till you have nothing left
Track Name: Battle
Somewhere I find a place
Called peace of mind I can’t complain and
This place I’ve settled in
Takes life away from all my sin
Somewhere you’ve made a place
You think you’re found But you’re always searching
I can’t believe the way
You stopped yourself before you’ve found it

Oh I try to make a point
But you don’t know what I mean
I speak, I wait, I wade through the dream
We don’t lie when we say there are wonderful things

Somewhere I’m lost in battle
Blinded by my eyes turn red
The anger grows, it builds
It lives somewhere inside my chest
Take it out of me; it’s your breath I breathe
Rip out myself, and remake me anew, let these eyes learn to see

Oh I try to make a point
But you don’t know what I mean
I speak, I wait, I wade through the dream
We don’t lie when we say
There are wonderful things

And it’s all that I have, an image to hold
A simple minded picture of my long-lost soul
Use it all, and bring it home

I will come and hope that you will listen
I will come and bring you home

It’s time to come, you need have no resistance
Time to come, come back home

Time to return your bruised and broken soul
Give it up and make it whole

It’s no answer, it’s all I have
Tired fingers, empty hands

Don’t be afraid, you’ll be more than what you are
You’ve come so, so very far you don’t always see it
