Track Name: Life in Gray
Freedom, sacred words a mystery
Leaving hues, washed out save for the threadbare spots
Where light defeats the gloom
Withhold the final hem of your cocoon
Wings will take to your soul in life's late afternoon

Wonder where the times gone now
A turbulent image all to yourself
burning a new day
colored disguise to avoid detection reflection inside
Boy you got it all planned out
perjury aimed at a still beating heart,
when is it wisdom?
Or just a plight for the gold reception
'till the break of the morning comes and you wanna die

Leisure, time to carve a memory
for the looms myriad of broken strings operators patching calls,
they're shocks into my soul
I've sung this weary song before while your sinking down
down upon all your foundation

Lately slow down
bits of the world are still under your thumb
Settled unwind
Forget the creases that fight for your brow
Birds above that come for the spring, have embraced the thaw all outstretched to sing
In frozen dreams I stood to meet you tall no victim to those summer swells but how far gone, you truly are

Wonder where the times gone now
A turbulent image all to yourself
burning a new day
colored disguise to avoid detection reflection inside
Boy you got it all planned out
perjury aimed at a still beating heart,
when is it wisdom?
Or just a plight for the gold reception
'till the break of the morning comes and you wanna die
Track Name: Roosevelt
Sunlight, through the garden
bleary eyed awake in solem ponder
split my wake upon the door
one step behind that even keel

faceless people
mingle in their crowd estranged
but how with strinking prose you lay
hushed in wallowing for genuine rays

Roosevelt will meet you at the grave
Will meet you when the stars go out
the ending of all days its calling down

Sunlight through the garden
afternoon is melting through the clouds
red and green burnt orange looming night to bring me home
again I'd walk upon a silent bay

To wait for darkness falling
only then you show a face
silver spur or dash so far away
I'll wait

Roosevelt will meet me at the grave
Will meet me when the stars go out
the ending of all days its calling down
Track Name: Under
By now the sun has crossed the southern face
Leaving me a shady spot of wonder to escape into
Trusting the breeze is easy 'til I wake
Rest until returning to the center of bureaucracy

Lose the way back for me
Take this hit and you'll see that your one of the clouds
The rest is there to put you down
To best you if you make a sound
To keep your heart underground

One day revealing far outside the felt
Wisdom found beyond yourself and calling from a future tomb
Foreign the novel fabric holds us well
wasted in the peace while yonder burns tomorrows fragile womb

Lose the way back for me
Take this hit and you'll see that your one of the clouds
The rest is there to put you down
To best you if you make a sound
To keep your heart underground
Track Name: Time Bomb
Casting off for the week
lonely adrift the working man sinks
down in blue forfeited mind
reach for the last dime that rolls in the tide
hold me over for just a little while

Days could they lead other trails
schools of mischievous souls with no plan
content to sink to float all of its fine
lost in the instance the crystal blue sky

I've got nothing to say
All this time choosing pockets to brim in what haste?
How does it live towards does it give towards
the sun that tomorrow brings
Breath I seize again
one more chance for to change in the gust of the wind
cool and breezy, come and see me
when all is lost but for your head

Beckon to know traveling
fluid for no conscriptions of me
thin as a letter to slip out of line lost with no paper trail
think you know me I disappear
My my keep me above

I've got nothing to say
All this time choosing pockets to brim in what haste?
How does it live towards does it give towards
the sun that tomorrow brings
Breath I seize again
one more chance for to change in the gust of the wind
cool and breezy, come and see me
when all is lost but for your head
Track Name: Promenade Reference
Liquid crystal eyes
show no signs of thoughts receiving
parsing logic through a brittle heart
can it speak to move me

So far alone against design
bold to think you could build it all from one mind

How far gone the silver lining
Mercury pools that boil in the moonlight
How far gone the silver lining

Error'd to decide
What you want and what's computed
Truth dispelled although your body melts
Fight against what compiled

Turn me away just spare the lie
All deserving of choice to rule your own mind

...

Liquid crystal eyes
Bleeding while your heart is losing

Turn me away just spare the lie
All deserving of choice to rule your own mind

How far gone the silver lining
Mercury pools that boil in the moonlight
How far gone the silver lining
Track Name: Chutes
Sleep when it comes
Feed the churn of my absent mind
Down those chutes of dream
Images following me
All this time working it through
Bear my fingers the stain that was two

Out on the miles
Ever changing navigations
Wing upon the heel
Barely rest between strides
Hear these words that I spill to the dark
Honest heart for your heading I'd call

Hold me to your last
Image of mirrored affection
Still though water lies
When my waves breach your shore
Bearing wind of my words its a future breath aside

Twist and turn around the world
Reckon you to find
Voices to answer your calls to the woods
Or whispering cracks in the wall
Ear that hears it a lifetime away
Missed the chance when you first came my way

Soothing memory
Take care to drop it gently
lost the footing to linger on
no more burden upon the soul

Hold me to your last
Image of mirrored affection
Still though water lies
Still though water lies
Still though water lies
When my waves breach your shore
Bearing wind of my words its a future breath aside
Track Name: Bigger Fjord
Venturing out in what open hours time
packed as a crew of mischievous fools
seeking a green beyond those rolling hills
to peaks lost in the fog

Grown outside the city's pall void of all conversations
only what voice in the wind

Who are we what is true
standing in the light
All we'll ever be is passed along
In fragments so small
Forever dancing underground

Empire skies view all alike
so why be a stranger when shared in loving company
Vast empty miles stretch out of sight
Now you see yourself so small
All is one we're waiting
All is one we're waiting

Rocky slops forcing single file lines
Breadth of a step absolves any thinking
Become the path that holds you from below
Your stork and burning barge, fire on the pond

Lonely I would wait for you behind your solid lens
Losing all my innocence cutting down my hair
Still a creature of lost conviction, who cares

Shed the blue step outside look me in the eye
All we'll ever be is moving on
Each second undone
Another lifetime forgot

Empire skies view all alike
so why be a stranger when shared in loving company
Vast empty miles stretch out of sight
Now you see yourself so small
All is one we're waiting
All is one we're waiting
All is one we're waiting
All is one
Track Name: The Rest
For now a solemn row upon your sill
Flickered candle light reveals there's some lost soul asleep tonight
Sleepless song in empty memory
Side by side in lonely mile albeit can't recall
What passed before your retina but missed a chisel to the skull

Would you mind
Would you mind
Take upon the bait of yourself
Fight alone there's nobody else to make you see against the tide
Flooded by and by
While lost to any reckoning
All seminole happenings collide

Gold illusions mask to glean a fortune bright
When truth be told the truth beholds your meaning right
All torn at the seams
While curiosity bleeds you
While curiosity bleeds you well I'm

Worried bout the fall your making started so far from grace
Hard as it comes will you break you fall without busting your face
Well I'm worried bout the fall your making it started so far from grace
Please don't let it linger on but your so strung out

Would you mind
Would you mind
Take upon the bait of yourself
Fight alone there's nobody else to make you see against the tide
Flooded by and by
While lost to any reckoning
All seminole happenings collide

Bow out from the steel mannequin bolted to your sides
The light of day won't judge your fortunes winding tale
All it will see is hollow wanderings
Take your sovereign soul and set it right
