Track Name: Unprepared
I took these stairs before
Set foot on a cloud
That sent me tumbling

Falling on the ground
What was I looking for
Did I find it up there
Or on the way down

Keep me as honest, as kind
As I have been in the back of my mind
And my laughter won’t be a curse

It’s here forever, for better
For worse

So don’t ask me how I’ll live alone
Cause I don’t know
I won’t tell you that I’m never scared
In fact, if you have to go
The air will have us on our knees
If we choose to breathe
So unprepared

I’ll be looking through
Directionless as time
Limitless as rhyme
One is lost at two
I’m crippled in the moonlight
Looking for the sunshine

I once was free in the day
Nobody knew what to say
I’ll fight those heavy clouds back
Cause you won’t see this end like that

So don’t ask me how I’ll live alone
Cause I don’t know
I won’t tell you that I’m never scared
In fact, if you have to go
The air will have us on our knees
If we choose to breathe
So unprepared

I can see it coming
It’s like a train
And I can see if coming
It’s headed my way
There’s no way I’m moving
From your embrace
I can see it coming
What a danger I face, what a danger I face
[x2]
Track Name: A Song for the Garden
I was meaning to say
I love you
From the first day
And my heart would keep it away
I knew not how it’d grow so that I may go
Wherever you go
Wherever you’re taken, know that I may follow
But my, my tracks are my own
The sun’s always out so I’ll go for the lovely stroll

Is it my heart or is it the weather
I just can’t, can’t keep it together
I’m begging on my standing feet
That you might say
Say that you love me

At night, I lock up the house
And the dreams within me start
Forcing themselves out
The night is clear as day and you’re
You’re headed my way
Enveloped in scarlet, oh I love how you know what to say
While carrying roses in their long lost bouquet

Is it my heart or is it the weather
I just can’t, can’t keep it together
I’m begging on my standing feet
That you might say
Say that you love me

I can swear to you
I’ve been falling for you, true
And my heart don’t come around to visit
Darling spin me ‘round
If you’ll kiss me, kiss me now
The room will soon be spinning and you’re bound to miss it

Is it my heart or is it the weather
I just can’t, can’t keep it together
I’m begging on my standing feet
That you might say
Say that you love me
[x2]
Track Name: Fallen Silent
Terrified of everything I touch
I never needed this so much
And it’s difficult to describe

The precarious stance I bear
On the verge of ice, cause there
Was never really a goodbye
Never really a goodbye
Goodbye
Children playing catch and sailing cross the ocean wide
Such nature may not make it to
The other side
Easy speaking, mindless seeking
Through realms of the unknown
Void once full of nothing
And all we would behold

(Chorus)
Man down
He’s fallen silent
He’s drowned in quiet
Have you decided
Will you stay around
I wouldn’t mind it
I wouldn’t stay the course
If I didn’t like it

I never know what I should do
I’m not afraid of loving you
I just can’t find the time

It may be found beneath the heaps
Of the sunken reality
Still years before it’s prime
It’s prime
Prime
Trembling waves will bring the end of days
Through which we sailed

Sirens took your soul, don’t worry though
They will prevail

You’re the last I’ve seen who has a bit of heart
Careful where you keep it or it might be torn apart
Be torn apart

(Chorus)
(Instrumental)

But you would never leave me with a promise
Your demeanor isn’t so sincere as the song develops loud and clear

If often you return, it’s not often for me
And my promise is for you my dear
For you my
Dear

Children playing catch and sailing cross the ocean wide
Such nature may not make it to
The other side
Track Name: Nightlight
Lights are on in the window I look up to
And dream of me
And dream of you
Lights are on in the window I look up to
Will I ever sleep til morning

I can feel the warmth of the house I see us in
A smaller place, I’ve never been
With eyes closed dearly we will drift
Away
And I finally sleep til morning

And I will float to you
My mind will be there soon
For the first time my heart is somewhere new
I might be dreaming
But I’ll follow through

My dreams line the walls of this tired room
Will it ever break
It’s overdue
My dreams line the walls of this tired room
And they cover me til morning

And I will float to you
My mind will be there soon
For the first time my heart is somewhere new
I know I’ve been dreaming
But I’m coming to

Lights are on in the window I look up to
Where I see me
And I see you
Swaying slowly in the light of the view
And I finally sleep til morning
And I finally sleep til morning
Track Name: This Ends Here
I’ve seen too many midnights for no good reason
Cause I can think faster than I can fall asleep
See the wonder in my wide eyes, have I ever known
Another living person who needs me maybe so
But it’s not my place to make you worry I
Still got time of my own
And despite our desperate, howling cries for mercy
Everyone needs their time
Alone
Oh

Ask me, as if it were enough
Can you feel the fire
Burning through the air cause someone took the blood
From this bleeding heart
Wounded while you’re open, ha
This is why I’m frozen in the dark

I’ve heard this before
(I’m keeping it inside me, locked until you find me)
Oh I, I, I’ve heard this before
So I’m screaming to the heavens
This ends here
And you meant to run away from all of your regrets
You know this love isn’t going to pay off any debt you
Owe to yourself for all the years you spent
Following the hands that would keep you fed

This is happening, there’s no keeping me out of it
You’re carrying chains and they’re rattling, rattling
I can hear the voices that I think you’re battling
I can hear their words but I don’t know what they’re asking

I, I’ve heard this before
(I’m keeping it inside me, locked until you find me)
oh I, I, I’ve heard this before
So I’m screaming to the heavens
This Ends Here

Oh

A lot of life is lost when you’re taught to forget
When crying gets you trouble and you’re already spent
And owned by the debt that keeps you under
But what can I say when there’s a roof over my head
Someone calm me down
I never knew just how tight my hands were bound
Until I accidentally broke through the bridges I refuse to burn down

I’ve heard this before and I’m screaming it
My hearts open and I’m bleeding it
Ask me again if I’m needing it
(This ends here)
I’ve felt this before and I’m keeping it
But find me again and I’m leaving it
I think the heavens were listening

I, I’ve heard this before
I’m keeping it inside me
Locked until you find me, I
I’ve heard this before
So I’m screaming to the heavens
This ends
I, I’ve heard this before
I’m keeping it inside me
Locked until you find me, I
I’ve heard this before
So I’m screaming to the heavens
This ends here.
Track Name: The Poison I Keep
My sight is fading away
stained purple and black where it's shattered
cracked by the sound of a name

I didn't know where my mind had been
often I find myself wandering
as if nothing could get in my way

But nothing comes I don't see coming
and I'm always waiting for something
though the horizons are clouded
I won't give up on a heart I can see

I'm just a slave to my love and
I won't give up til' that's nothing
I'll just go on believing
that no one will give up on me

Come along
There's poison in the water
but the taste isn't strong

Say you love
and I'll wade a little farther
cause I feel strong enough

Make me a waste of you're time I
can't help but needing this steady
just release me 'fore the day that I die

I dare someone to believe in me now
once they find out that the person they found
won't trust what she knows, but to her vision she's bound
so know who you love, she'll come around just:

Come along
There's poison in the water
but the taste isn't strong

Say you love
and I'll wade a little farther
cause I feel strong enough

the water runs clear
so there's nothing to fear
you'll never have enough before you're done for
you're done for

shatter all that I see
it's the poison I keep
all of it a hopeless way to need

come along
there's poison in the water
but the taste isn't strong
