Track Name: Tilting at Windmills
Maybe there is a thing…something physical…or a memory.
Something you forgot, something unique.
And here it comes again, it washes over you. Over you.
Hopes and dreams get lost at sea.
My less than helping hands cannot make immaculate what once was right.
Hopes and dreams get lost at sea.

As for grief, it comes in waves…waves.
Lots of scars from loss of loves.
As for grief, it comes in waves…waves.

The waves they never stop and somehow you don’t want them too,
they’re apart of you. In between the waves is life.
My less than helping hands cannot make immaculate what once was right.

As for grief, it comes in waves…waves.
Lots of scars from lots of loves.
As for grief, it comes in waves…waves.
I feel just as useless as I am fragile.

But in between the waves, through moments of calm…the moon, the stars, the sun.
They remind me of the beauty I should never miss.
Track Name: The Bend of the Earth
Some days, some days.
The spinning it feels the same.
Let gravity settle you where you lay.
Our minds can’t grasp all that empty space,
but our hearts still feel it when its there, just the same.

Some days, some days.
Just out of reach. Whats ahead has always been to far for me.
I’ve been here far to long but I’m not sure whats changed.
I still think that I should have more things to say.

Good bye, stay safe.
I need to leave. Emptiness has always been a theme for me.
My legs will bear what my heart can’t take,
but like the tides my mind will change with every phase.

These days, these days.
The spinning it feels the same.
Let gravity settle me where it may.
Our minds can’t grasp all that empty space,
but our hearts still feel it when its there, just the same.

Get back to the bend of the earth, where I feel the same.
If I could just know there’s something more, I could find the end. I could find the end.

If I could get past the bend of the earth, would it be the same?
and if I could know there’s something more, could I find the end? could I find the end?

I have been here so long I don’t know what has changed,
I am counting the days until I start the escape.
I could build up speed to sail through the wind,
where the air gets thin and the oceans end.
I want to feel like Im weightless just to know what it means.
I want to see all the views that make me weak in the knees.
I want to feel all the things that you can never teach,
always just beyond, always just out of reach.

I could build up speed just to sail through the wind,
where the air gets thin and the ocean ends.
I want to feel like Im weightless just to know what it means.
I want to see all the views that make me weak in the knees.
I want to feel all the things that you can never teach,
always just beyond, always just out of reach.

If I could get past the bend of the earth, would I feel the same?
and if I could know there’s something more, could I find the end? could I find the end?
If I could get past the bend of the earth, would I feel the same?
and if I could know there’s something more, could I find the end? A peaceful end.
Track Name: Endeavor
The faint outline as I burn across the sky.
A distant thought or dream.
Sold short by broken promises in the silence that follows.

At a deafening pace. A lack of elegance and grace.
Until I am blue in the face, only fools are not afraid,
Only fools are not afraid.

Scattered light casting shadows of monsters in my reflection.
Looking at myself its hard to believe. A distant thought or memory.

At a deafening pace. A lack of elegance and grace.
Until I am blue in the face, only fools are not afraid,
Only fools are not afraid.
Only fools are not afraid.
Only fools.
Track Name: The Greater Darkness
Thinking of a future you don’t even have.
How time can never heal, its scale just makes the loss seem small.
Like the light of stars against the darkness. Each one of them alone,
so far away from its perspective. But from here I can see such complex shapes, beautiful pictures….constellations.

Who is gonna be there when I wake up?
I’ve been gone too long.
Who is gonna be there when I run out of things to say?
I’ve been gone too long.

Let go of it, will the darkness ever end?
Is there hope for you?
Let go of it, will the darkness ever end?
Do I want it to?

The way of a future you don’t understand. What it means to die,
does it matter? Focus on the light not the space between.
When you disappear the Earth will not notice at all.

If I let go of it, will the darkness ever end?
Is there hope for you?
If I let go of it, will the darkness ever end?
Do I want it to?
If I let go of it, will the darkness ever end?
Is there hope for you?
Let go. It will end.
Do I want it to?
Let go. It will end.
Is there hope for you?
Track Name: Monuments
Still sifting through the dust of ruined hearts.
The last bastions of hope.
Our one shot to live forever in the hearts and minds of younger years.

Learn to live like the sun will never set,
and learn to love without regret.

When we’re gone we leave nothing but some dirt and stone.
The afterthought of who we are.
Where do we go and how could we leave?
Just something that occurred.
When we are gone we leave nothing but monuments.
Nothing but dust.

Learn to live like the sun will never set
and learn to love without regret.
Learn to live like the sun will never set.
Learn to love without regret.

Nothing we do matters at all, but at least we’re not alone.
At least we’re not alone.
