Track Name: You'll Find Me
Barely held by blackened seams,
and sculptured by a heavy hand,
the abstract gaze deceives his smile
foundations built on broken land

In between the shades of blue,
Where it makes no sense to you...
Long shadows of a setting sun,
Miles away from anyone,
That’s where you’ll find me.

Aspects warped reflect the life
that’s written in the linseed hue,
the little boy who’s been mislaid
now safe within the canvas skew,

In between the shades of blue,
Where it makes no sense to you...
Long shadows of a setting sun,
Miles away from anyone,
That’s where you’ll find me.

Rising from the smokeless stacks
through vivid streets of hiding faces,
textures of imagination
revealed layer by layer.

In between the shades of blue,
Where it makes no sense to you...
Long shadows of a setting sun,
Miles away from anyone,
That’s where you’ll find me.

That’s where you’ll find me.
That’s where you’ll find me.
Track Name: Beaches
Watching seabirds fly overhead and I'll keep moving,
Something tells me I should be dead and I'll keep moving
Surrounded, I’m so alone,
Distant beaches, we should be home.

Bullets burning scars in the land and we keep moving,
We all left our souls in the sand and we keep moving,
I’ll let go of this fear that’s in my heart,
Keep fighting until we fall apart.

Guns mourn silent sons years from now, when we stopped moving
Looking back you’ll all wonder how we kept moving
So quiet, breezes from the sea,
I lay here, my brothers next to me.

Watching seabirds fly overhead
Something tells me I should be dead
Track Name: Hope For Snow
It feels like nothing’s changed but I can tell,
The same town but everything has gone to hell,
I hope it snows to hide the ridges on my face,
I tried to lose, those memories that I can’t erase...

Since then, made to leave you there,
Alone, crying on the other side,
I know, I know...

So long staring at that concrete wall,
Dividing, then block by Bloc began to fall,
I hope it snows to cool the burning of my heart,
It’s molten still from all the years we’ve been apart,

Since then, made to leave you there,
Alone, crying on the other side,
I know, I know...

Then we met, I think it took you by surprise,
“I've missed you, your daughter has her mother’s eyes”
I hope it snows to cover footprints that remain,
You’re happy now, what difference did it really make...

Since then, made to leave you there,
Alone, crying on the other side,
I know, I know...
Track Name: Bright Star
Change your coat,
From summer’s green to autumns burning yellow,
Blown away like leaves on a path,
Branching over old names carved in the bark.

Frozen cold,
The scars of winter’s frost become apparent,
Melts away like ice on your hand,
Flowing over the cracks torn in the ground.

Dropping low below the skyline,
Without you to keep it burning for long,
My bright star lost deep in your heart.

Tell no one,
Where all the things we cared about are hidden,
Turning stones as tides wash away,
Clouding over as dusk darkens the day.

Dropping low below the skyline,
Without you to keep it burning for long,
My bright star lost deep in your heart.

Pushing through,
The shoots of something new begin to flourish,
Given time and a little space to grow,
Turning slowly to catch the heat of the sun.

Rising up beyond the skyline,
In your arms will keep me burning so long,
My bright star found safe in your heart.
Track Name: Tree Lines
Tree lines, leading to the ocean, deep blue like emotion, burning in the sand,
I’ll wait, waiting for the lines to break, well it may be some time before I get back home.

Might I be what you see, do I give myself away
By the lies on my face that promised you I’d stay
Now I just don't recognise that picture of myself anymore...

White walls, dimly lit in long halls, only one direction, leave the way you came,
All eyes, burning through my paper heart, No I won’t last long here dissolving in this glass.

Might I be what you see, I give myself away
By the lies on my face that promised you I’d stay
Now I just don't recognise that picture of myself anymore.

Like a soul lost at sea I know that I won't be anymore...

Did you, did you try to call me, to tell me you’d protect me or was it just the storm,
I called, I called until my breath caught fire, and I thought I heard you from somewhere in the wood.

Might I be what you see, I give myself away
By the lies on my face that promised you I’d stay
Now I just can't stand to look at that picture of myself anymore.

I’m burning at the edge, I'm fading on old paper...
Like a soul lost at sea, I knew I wouldn’t be anymore.
Track Name: Clouds
Hear the noise on the screen, waking from some subtitled dream.
And we can't turn it over, we can't turn.
Reading through the constant beat, monotone and stuck on repeat.
Now we can't turn it over, we can't turn.

Is this how we win the war, arm the weapons never used before.
Don't feel, that this is real, don't feel, that we can wait forever.

Remote thoughts held in clouds, translations lost in the crowds.
And we can't turn it over, we can't turn.
Follow me I'll follow you, there's not much more we can do.
And we can't turn it over, we can't turn.

Is this how the war was won, words replace the bullet in the gun.
And don't feel, that this is real, don't feel, that we can wait forever.

Everyday views returned, your network church in which you’re confirmed.
And we can't turn it over, we can't turn.
So we sit, day by day, face to face yet so far away.
And we can't turn it over, we can't turn.

Is this how the war will end, disconnected lists of unknown friends.
Don't feel, like this is real, don't feel, that we can wait forever.
Track Name: Threads
I'm looking for a different sun, never seen by anyone,
I'm searching for a brighter ray, shining from another day.

If I ever come apart in front of you,
You can run away but I... I've been feeling the same way too,
If you ever come apart in front of me,
Will I look away and turn to run from what I see.

I'm falling like a winter leaf, severed by a lost belief,
I'm thinking like the blizzard snow, I don't know where I'm going to blow.

If I ever come apart in front of you,
You can run away but I... I've been feeling the same way too,
If you ever come apart in front of me,
Will I look away and turn to run from what I see...

Staring at us from afar, pulsing like a distant star,
Are we ever getting on that train, are we ever coming back again.

If I ever come apart in front of you,
You can run away but I... I've been feeling the same way too,
If you ever come apart in front of me,
Will I look away and turn to run from what I see.
