Blasphemy 04:13
When you’re alone Trouble sleeping Planted seeds begin to grow Pretty soon they will take hold You force a smile Though it kills you To put their minds at ease You’re so eager to please What you want You’d never ask of me Because what you want You feel is blasphemy Dying light Keep on dreaming Don’t be afraid to let me know What you’ve been thinking What you want You’d never ask of me Because what you want You feel is blasphemy
2.
Cruel 04:25
I’ve seen it in your eyes You don’t want me to be here Your smile twists in time I wish that I could have seen it I didn’t know you had it in you It’s not like you I didn’t know you had it in you But you do – you can be cruel You’ll find me half alive Colour draining from my face You’ve got half a mind To call me one of your mistakes I didn’t know you had it in you It’s not like you I didn’t know you had it in you But you do – you can be cruel I’m just a way to waste your time Forever blinded to the signs I didn’t know you had it in you It’s not like you I didn’t know you had it in you But you do – you can be cruel
3.
Fall Apart 03:49
Keep a level head Like the horizon Your broken record mind’s Always spinning out of time In time you’ll come to see There’s no bright light waiting Keep her close For fear she’ll fall apart again You came so close to losing it all It’s always on your mind That hollow silence You’ll do all that you can To never hear that sound again There’s nothing you can say That will make it go away Keep her close For fear she’ll fall apart again if you don’t No one knows how far there is to fall Or just how close you came to losing it all
4.
Horizon 04:19
Half awake I heard you speak So many words Just out of reach I always stayed Wilfully blind I hope it was hard When it came time I promise I will find you No matter what horizon You’re hiding behind You kept me close Quick to believe A sleight of hand Too slight to see All the things You took from me My steady hand My will to breathe I promise I will find you No matter what horizon You’re hiding behind
5.
City lights and state lines Blurring fast in my eyes With each passing hour, god knows I try To keep your smile fixed in my mind But this is more than I can bear Distance makes the heart grow dull Static hum and dead air Breathing slows, are you there? And I can’t believe the things you said All your wounded words tumble through my head But this is more than I can bear Distance makes the heart grow dull
6.
Without You 04:26
The ground is soft and cold Feel the breeze As the leaves fall on your face Like your breathe hangs in the air You’ll be gone When the seasons fall away Feel like you’re losing time So afraid Always looking for a sign Can I close my eyes in the dark And wake up where you are? Can I move without leaving my room? We’ll find out soon Because it’s harder to leave When I’m without you
7.
Still Life 03:31
The still life we’re in Blurs into one It’s so nice to feel you close Colours run And you will fade from view And I will reach to find you Sunrise – so bright Where have you been? You and I always try To flee the scene And you will fade from view And I will reach to find you
8.
Drive 04:40
You were in the back seat Counting lights that line the road As they flash through your window Like a dim lethargic strobe The radio spits static Trying to find a familiar sound But we keep it on for comfort To drown the silence out It’s a long drive home And I don’t know where this road goes My eyes are getting heavy As I squint into the rain I curse myself for breathing And waking you again It’s a long drive home And I don’t know where this road goes And you say that I am absent I’m asleep behind the wheel And we’ve never known each other And I guess we never will It’s a long drive home And I don’t know where this road goes
9.
The sun is at your window But your blinds make sure that he don’t Wake you up, disturb your slumber So you stay safe under the covers It was the week that never was They were the days that we both lost Chasing shadows from the corners of your room In this small room you will stay hidden You’ve built your tomb, let no one in Here you’ll sleep through the seasons They waste their breath You’re way past reason It was the week that never was They were the days that we both lost Chasing shadows from the corners of your room If you won’t speak, I will do the taking If you won’t leave, I will lock myself in If you won’t wake, I’ll watch over you
10.
You tried to warn me Like the autumn skies turn grey You were fading Winter seemed so far away I should have been there To stay your restless mind My dreams so vivid While your memories unwind When your feet next touch the ground You’ll be safe and sound In a place you will call home In a place you’ll come to loathe They always said that We were stitched together I never noticed You were picking at the seams When your feet next touch the ground You’ll be safe and sound In a place you will call home In a place you’ll come to loathe When your feet next touch the ground You’ll be safe and sound Half a world away But I love you all the same
