Track Name: Pieces of You
Less than a horse for this town
With nothing around,
Their judgment surrounds us crudely.

Fenced in by falsehoods and fears,
But caged birds still sing,
A song of one thing.

They won't understand,
And have their great plan,
And shake with alarm for nothing.

They drown out decent,
Bound by resent,
And feel triumphant for nothing.

One day we’ll leave, pieces of you and me.
Torn patiently, pieces of you and pieces of me.

One night a new moon will rise,
Its beams will shine here,
But we will be there, together.

What we could be burns like fire,
And lights up the sky,
This sheltered sky. But...

They won't understand,
And have their great plan,
And shake with alarm for nothing.

They drown out decent,
Bound by resent,
And feel triumphant for nothing.
Track Name: Never Ask Why
Careless we stray,
And slip away.
Clouding our clear blue sense

Why be afraid?
Why run away?
Shivering in suspense

So long to wait
Patience, fate
No more excuses

Closer to reckless surrender, you and I
Closer to secrets inside
Closer as seconds go on and on and on
So close we never ask why

When we return
The new lit sky
Makes the night all worthwhile

Those who insist
To play like this,
Get what they came for.
No more excuses

Closer to reckless surrender, you and I
Closer to secrets inside
Closer as seconds go on and on and on
So close we never ask why
Track Name: Love to Watch You Fall
3 am and the thoughts rolls in from your lonely world, your only world.
A one-way mirror, a one-way seer for a one-way world, one-way your way

Goes
overexposed
you set your sights, with rants on rights and riot all alone, posting to my phone.

Trip,
and sink the ship
as your lines and whines entwine and twist around, again,
And spin…

Oh, but I love to watch you fall
And I love your crumbling wall
And I love you when it starts all over

Oh I really love to watch you fall
I really love me most of all
And I love, really love when it starts all over

4 am for your own mayhem, heavy trafficked air, heavy hearted there
we see we sigh and we roll our eyes at the ones you’ve lost, the ones you’ve crossed

before
their out the door
you set your sights, with rants on rights and riot all alone, posting to my phone.

One
Slip of the tongue
as your lines and whines entwine and twist around, again,
In a spin

Oh, but I love to watch you fall
And I love your crumbling wall
And I love you when it starts all over

Oh I really love to watch you fall
I really love me most of all
And I love, really love when it starts all over
Track Name: Whispers Kill
Lies
Shielding fragile eyes
Meddling little minds
Always picking at the seams
Weaving stories endlessly - go on

Love
Guarded and denied
Everyone’s a spy
Watching, waiting restlessly
Relayed back so breathlessly – to you

Watch out darling
When love comes calling
LIsten darling,
Trust your open heart.

Take fare warning
When fate comes calling,
Watch out darling,
Whispers kill our spark.

Thoughts
Prying jealous eyes
Planning all the time
Lovestruck and so secretly
Crafting lies so recklessly – and on

Watch out darling
When love comes calling
LIsten darling,
Trust your open heart.

Take fare warning
When fate comes calling,
Watch out darling,
Whispers kill our spark.
Track Name: All the Things We Made
1, 2, 3, 4
These eyes last gazed on Eden,
Lost count of all the seasons
So great the space that tore us,
Less than the space before us.

This face reflecting glories,
And lined with years of stories.
The drifting dunes inside me,
Reshape, reform, remind me.

The ties that used to bind me
Once hard to put behind me

And seeing you before me
This story starts again

And the world is still the same
So sacred so profane
So the world is not to blame
For all the things we’ve made

And if good and bad remain
And if everything’s the same
Then the world is not to blame
For all the things we’ve made

There must have been a reason
A fateful act of treason
Guilt without confession
Falling down from heaven

This upside down procession
Too late to change direction
When heroes die by millions
Then all the saints are villains

The ties that used to bind me
Once hard to put behind me

And seeing you before me
The story starts again

And the world is still the same
So sacred so profane
So the world is not to blame
For all the things we’ve made

If good and bad remain
And if everything’s the same
Then the world is not to blame
For all the things we’ve made
Track Name: Autumn October
Autumn
October
Familiar
But colder

Fearlessly
Floating
Through spaces
Eroding

Holding
Too closely
Broken

Locked eyes
Reliving
Shaken
Remembering

And into
The present
With tensions
So pleasant

Holding
So closely
Glowing

Dear silver sky
Stand aside
Wave goodbye
Just tonight
Move along
Sober sun at dawn

Waking
Tethered
Aching
Together

Hollow
Laughter
Nervously
After

Holding
Too closely
Broken

Following our old ways again
Falling down upon our swords
Forgetting all we have learned since then
Forever lost in our own worlds

Autumn
October

Dear silver sky
Stand aside
Wave goodbye
Just tonight
Move along
Sober sun at dawn
Track Name: Vicariously
Black books, shaded
Lost loves, jaded
All for the score

His goals, his game
A walk, of shame
And out the door

Such intrigue
Such variety
They keep a line

Oh they swoon
As they flock to him
Spellbound and blind

Girls they talk so furiously
Boys they watch so curiously
On it goes
Show of shows
We all live vicariously

Fresh face
New name
Tactics the same
Repeat replay

He’s with her
We’re for him with her
Adrift away

Girls they talk so furiously
Boys they watch so curiously
On it goes
Show of shows
We all live vicariously

We all love what you’ve got
La-la-la-la
We want more than we’ve got
La-la-la-la
Track Name: Darkness
Waves of struggles
Wash in troubles
Ebb and they flow
Come as they go

Weight so heavy
Breaks the levy
Drawing us down
Obsess and we drown

From the view on shore
From what lies in store
From whatever will be

Through the sticks and stones
Scraping breaking bones
Through this willingly

Try on the darkness
Give in to what you want more
Try on the darkness
Give in to what you adore

Crush of time/space
Say less save face
Image too clear
Cracking veneer

Fog and fury
Hustled hurried
Seams frayed and torn
Faded and worn

From the view on shore
From what lies in store
From whatever will be

Through the sticks and stones
Scraping breaking bones
Through this willingly

Try on the darkness
Give in to what you want more
Try on the darkness
Give in to what you adore
Track Name: Hollow
And what, we just pretend,
It’s the start and not the end?
When the only thing we love,
Is our independence.

Promises, superficial
An arrogant charade.

Through the phone we do fine,
Abbreviated by design,
Short, sweet, playfully,
We bait each other…

Every round,
It seems we’re over
Every night – it’s far from over…

But every word can leave me
Hollow hollow
And every plan undone is
Hollow, hollow
And every empty heart is
Hollow, hollow home.

Every break, every space
Every petty tiff erased,
And then you’re at my door
It’s never over.

Promises, superficial
An elegant charade.

But every word can leave me
Hollow hollow
And every plan undone is
Hollow, hollow
And every empty heart is
Hollow, hollow home.
Track Name: New Stars in the Sky
Hands under tables
Schemes and angles
No one sees

Marks from a mistress
Crooked kisses
On our knees

Like
Flirt
Hide
Hurt

We’ll
Get
Ours
Yet

Touch fast and fleeting
Sets hearts beating
We can’t disclose

Wait
Stay
Don’t
Stray

We’ll
Get
Ours
Yet

Tonight, let’s bleed our senses
Tonight’s tomorrow’s lie
Tonight let’s bleed our senses
New stars in the sky

Hush in the trenches
Veil the senses
Stay in line

Dark, draped in danger
Act the stranger
They’ll never find

We’ll
Get
Ours
Yet

Tonight, let’s bleed our senses
Tonight’s Tomorrow’s lie
Tonight let’s bleed our senses
New stars in the sky
