Track Name: Ghostly Times
These are ghostly times
So dig up my grave
Don’t know what you’ll find
Before I wake up
My soul you can take

These awful times have left me aghast
Fighting memories for the moment
These days would never last
I can’t stop and see the ocean
The waves hit too fast
I can't stop and smell the roses
My day’s already past

I close my eyes
And cull through the maze
Of words I can’t find
To cover mistakes up, wake up
Yeh we've all made mistakes up
Wake up

These awful times have left me aghast
Fighting memories for the moment
These days could never last
I can’t stop and see the ocean
The waves hit too fast
I can't stop and smell the roses
My day’s already past

Woke to find them in a daze
We watched them sign our souls away
Track Name: Sleepless State
This life has its moments that are never undone
As we flip through the pages of a story unsung
What is faith? What is pride? What is grace? What are lies?
Why'd you say it's alright when you walked away?

Then the earth stood still long enough to know
That if looks won't kill, then mirrors will haunt my soul

I'm on fire when I'm in a sleepless state
With my eyes closed and I’m wide awake
Think I’ve lost it
I’m set at a dangerous pace
I'm on fire but I’m wide awake

I’m lost, so go on and take another shot right now
Tell me if I hit the ground
Caught me dancing in circles caught me staring at space
I feel my feet have left the ground
I’m floating in the wind somehow
You saw me fly like a songbird made of porcelain wings

I'm on fire when I’m in a sleepless state
With my eyes closed and I’m wide awake
Think I’ve lost it I’m set at a dangerous pace
I’m on fire but I’m wide awake

I'm on fire when I'm in a sleepless state
Track Name: Book Of Love
I wrote the book on love
But closed it short of chapter three
My demons haunt my world
I couldn't dare bring you with me
I’m silent like the woods
Until a tree falls underneath
My skin my blood it boils
Oh won’t you wait oh won’t you please

By design I've wasted all my love
On ones that don't deserve the better part of me
While you stare ther silent in the dark
Hoping my heavy heart, is yours
You’ve got it

You don’t want it
Just let me be

The bottle twists my words
They’re sharp as diamonds, they cut deep
Facade as careful terms
They fall apart now as we speak
Belay a witty verse
Let’s get down to this you and me
Then close your eyes a while
Cuz when we wake yeah I’ll be free

By design, I’ve wasted all my love
On ones that don’t deserve the better part of me
Whil you stare
Your heart and fragile care
Hoping my heavy heart is yours,
You’ve got it

You don’t want it
Just let me be
Track Name: Murder Of Crows
I felt the rumbling beneath my feet
I heard the whispers amongst the trees
Running circles in an endless race
But now I know
That this guilt bears a heavy weight
And haunts my soul

So I fall down
The night is dark and dim now
My body's cold and still now
I'm waiting for the world

To slow down
I've seen too many go down
Regretting every word
They all forgot to say
To everyone they loved
Their words won't fade away

So when they turn the lights out on you
Would your grief be wasted to the wind
No soul to barter with
Or did you call it quits before you knew
That this world ain't meant for noble men
Nobody knows when they'll fall down

I've seen too many go down
Regretting every word
They all forgot to say
To everyone they loved
Their words won't fade away

Nobody wants to fade away
Desperate to savor every day
Waywardly wasting in the window
With a murder of crows above your head
Track Name: Rainstorm
Time will tell all of the lies we’ve been told
In a world of perfect smiles and gold
You'll find behind this hell a wall of cryptic lies and tails

I know which way the wind blows
I know it'll catch me anyway

The flood will come in waves
While the sky is grey for days
Until the world we revel in
Is one that no one remembers
They burned the evidence
They stole your innocence

The waves are crashing, the winds are strong
We are caught in a rainstorm
These walls are crumbling, soon to be gone
We are caught in a rainstorm

So this is what it feels like
When we’ve lost control
So hold on dear for dear life
This is the calm before the storm

You see
It’s haunting me
To shred to pieces what’s left of me

I know which way the wind blows
I know it'll catch me anyway

The flood will come in waves
While the sky is grey for days
Until the world we revel in
Is one that no one remembers
They burned the evidence
They stole your innocence
Track Name: Trace Your Steps
Trace your steps
Count the seconds as they pass
Forget them all, start over again
The smallest thoughts are triggers
To the biggest guess as to what we're doing here
Either way this is all we know

The world's turned over and we fell overboard
The skies beneath us the signs they flee us all

When numbers bring you comfort
And screens meet all of your needs
You'll use love to break the fall
A wall to stop; repeat
love to break the fall
A wall to stop; repeat
I'd love to break the fall

Overboard we've all just abandoned
What we used to know
And now we're all stranded
We're trying to get back to before
The world we knew and loved wasn’t imagine

So place the rope around my neck
Make sure and tightly pull
Until I draw no breath
Braced by fire
Trace your steps

Overboard we have all just abandoned
What we used to know
And now we're all stranded
We're trying to get back to before
The world we knew and loved wasn’t imagine

The world's turned over and we fell overboard
The skies beneath us the signs they flee us all
Track Name: Sit Back, Relapse, And Go
We’re versed in life and loss now
I’m sure it feels the only way
We pray for every day to be reborn

You try to yell, try to yell, but you can’t talk
Try to run, try to run, but you can’t walk
Sit back, relapse, and go

Just hold on
You’ll make it through the night
I’ll watch you shake the tired off
And find your words inside

Relive the last time you woke
Thinking "I'm back out on my own"
But it follows you
Hides in every nook
Swallows every ounce of truth from you
And the ones you love start to fade
And the doors you closed start to stay that way

You try to yell, try to yell, but you can’t talk
Try to run, try to run, but you can’t walk
Sit back, relapse, and go

Just hold on
You’ll make it through the night
I’ll watch you shake the tired off
And find your words inside

And while you're waiting for the moments to slip away
You call upon the ocean breeze to take you away
You wake to fight the urge that governs every choice that you make
Sit back this only hurts when life begins to fade away

So just hold on
You'll make it through the night
And when your body starts to shake
It’s fighting demons on the inside
Track Name: Grey
You walk your way through life uninterrupted
No chance a fool out there could brave your soul
You yield at no one’s site you’ve got your motives
To test the very thing that makes you whole

You walk alone
So brace your weary bones
'Til the night it turns to day
Until all that's left is grey

The will it breaks before the body crumbles
And steps you take are twice that of your old
To fail is not an option
They would fight before they'd run
Had they the test of strength to brave the sun

You walk alone
So brace your weary bones
'Til the night it turns to day
Until all that's left is grey

Our paths have often crossed
In moments we should be undone
Don't tempt me now
You're better when I'm gone

'Til all that's left is grey
When all that's left is grey
