Track Name: From The Sky
She moves as static through the walls
I closed the windows, locked the doors
Another day goes by, she's in the air
And if she's near me now, then I will fall to the away

Away, I don't know where the wires lay

Life is (fading out again)
Black and white (signals gone again)
Day and night (lost in)
Start again (silence)
Hush now (quiet, calm again)
No need to cry as all I am comes crashing from the sky

She moves as mist between the walls
A voice as soft as midnight’s call
Again, her words pass through the radio
And I will listen close, and I will fall to the away

Away, I don't know where the wires lay

Life is (fading out again)
Black and white (signals gone again)
Day and night (lost in)
Start again (silence)
Hush now (quiet, calm again)
No need to cry as all I am comes crashing from the sky
Track Name: Beyond The Hours
Under the weather, the weather, the rain
Waiting for new skies, blue skies again
Everything we are holds a promise a day away
Just pray that this rain won't keep falling for long

Far beyond the hours
Far beyond the seas
Far beyond this still life
There's a world inside of me

Under the heavens, the heavens we fall
Shattered the old ties with new lies evolved
Everything in flames, red and yellow to burn away
Just look to the rain, to the grey skies above
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
One thought smashes the sky above
To rip the clouds apart
One thought is tearing the in between
Divides two worlds apart
Monsters live within
We're feeding our ends

Close your eyes again
To brighter lights within
The world goes red and white tonight
With eyes open
Find hope within a sin
The sun will rise

One thought is tearing the in between
The rift is growing fast
Somewhere there is light
Relinquish your sight
Join hands with the blind
Track Name: Something More
Where are we now?
Another season made of gold
No sight unseen, no world between us
No lasting divide
Truth in our eyes, all in good time

And again, and again let it play to the end of all
(This day is ours forever, as all of life is ours)
And again, and again let another begin to fall
(This night is ours forever, this life is ours)
Into something more

Where are we now?
Another rain, another snow
Truth in our hearts, love in our minds
Track Name: Gears
The steel and sweat remind
The dust of what lies behind
Writhe
Let the past unwind
Rise
Forge the steel to spine

Corroded hearts eaten by
The rust of all that has died
Cry
Scream into the sky
Light
Locked away from sight

Our gears
Turn in every tear
Spin in every word
Grind it all to ash
Away
Track Name: Glorious
We are the essence of a dream
Each day another chance toward another destiny
Rise, take to the air before we fall again
Into a sea of silence to see us to the end

Glorious
As any star that's fallen
To the earth
This light to life, all life to dust

We are the heavens and the hells
Each day another chance to fill the spaces in between
Fall, land on the floor before we rise again
Into a sky of silence, to find the tears and mend
Track Name: End The World
I am
As I am today
All I am
Is the falling rain
We're altered
And we stay the same
We're altered
As one, we remain

Someone end the world
And let it slip away
The end of our days
We're standing too close
to the edge of what would never fade away

I am
As I am today
You're altered
You remain the same
We're altered
As one, we remain
Track Name: The Heart (Cold Circuit)
Through the dark
We fall
To the coldest heart
Track Name: Sever
Fade again
We live another fate, again
Another way back home again
Late again
I am on the other side, again
Another fate again
Wait again
Lost inside the binds of time and

We will forever hold through harsh weather
Standing together, life keeps crawling
We hold forever, ties that won't sever
Standing together, life keeps calling
We will forever hold through harsh weather
Standing together, life keeps crawling
We are forever, ties that won't sever
This is not the end, just another day

Face again,
Another life I've made, again
Another way back home again
We ascend, to face another timeless change again
Another fate again, wait again
Lost inside the binds of life and…
Track Name: Let It Go
All the tears unsung,
And every deed undone
Something worthless and everything
at once
So long ago, so far away
Listen closer to the sound of
Wires and words and ministries
Withdrawn, despite this longing

One time I swore
There's nothing in the entire world
Worth more than where we are
One time you swore
That nothing in the entire world
Before our eyes would die
Let it go

Irradiated suns
Blind from the sight
These desecrated lives
Go by
So close at hand, so near today
listen closer to the sound of
Tones and bones and history
The lights that shine much brighter
Track Name: Wasteland
And into our fear we falter now
As the ages pass us by
And the hope shall shine once more
Through the darkest night

And through this wasteland
And through it all
We walk together
Through endless night

And another year is set in stone
As the silence sleeps inside
And the faith we hold so high
Lets the hours pass
