Track Name: Firestarter
Draw the line
In the sand between you and I
Consciously, I choose
A different reality than the one that you abuse

Burn the fields down
I won't let you take this from me
As the smoke clears
we can finally learn to breathe

and

Outweigh the scales that tipped against us
Pull your mind away from infection
Avert your eyes as the kingdom falls


As history repeats the same mistakes
We shield your eyes against the flames

Burn the fields down
I won't let you take this from me
As the smoke clears
We can finally learn to breathe

I see life through different colors
As if my eyes could see through time
I feel life through shades of sound
A vision forward; seek to find

The sweeping flood of gravity
(As if my eyes could see through time)
A final claw of desperation
(A vision forward seek to find)

Open up your vision
And replace the truth with the needed proof
To carry on your mission

Breathe to release your demons
Have confidence that the losing hand
Gives strength to your ambitions

Life:
The sweeping flood of gravity
As if my eyes could see through time

Life:
Not a choice of if we live or thrive
But how we choose to sacrifice

Life
Track Name: Redwoods
As I look to the sky and ponder your life
Relieve the pressure building; inhale
Exhale; the roots of darkness grow
And I’m alone
We live in the present but we look to the past
You caught the right train but it was on the wrong track

Oh, they grow, the branches of your soul
Into my dreams, it seems, I’m somewhere in between feeling
The grief, relief, my own mortality
Ethereal in nature, fought your way out by teeth

Sometimes when I’m alone I like to sit and think
About your life, and your smile and
the way you always gave your best at everything
I remember the show in downtown San Francisco
We were only sixteen, but I’ll always have the memory

If I could see (If I could see)
My body’s a vessel, carrying currents at sea (currents at sea),
And there you’ll be (And there you’ll be)
I’m living for something, something that’s bigger than me

Oh, they grow, the branches of your soul
Into my dreams, it seems, I’m somewhere in between feeling
The grief, relief, my own mortality
Ethereal in nature; fought your way out by teeth

And it’s your ghost I see
And it’s your ghost, I believe
The sun sets behind the mountains again
The crimson cracks the sky and now I miss you my friend

I’ve learned to let go

I see your smile everywhere I thought you should be
I see your eyes in the face of every stranger
Track Name: Endurance
So picturesque; But picture this instead
"You've sunk so low, no hope no soul, I never wanted this"

I'll try and paint you something pretty
But I can't steady my hands
I'm stitched together by old dreams
And chances I once had

So breathe in for comfort
I know it won't be easy but I'll find my way home

I've fallen through the clouds
And stumbled in the stars
If my feet could touch the ground
They're landing where you are

Lately I've felt alive; only when I close my eyes
I'm falling apart; the angels start to sing
The string's still taught because I never cut through it
"I'm changing for the better but you know I can't prove it"*
I'm so close this time
To leaving it behind

Open wide
I'm longing for the other side
Chemistry everyday keeps the thoughts at bay

Black or white?
Her gilded tongue and venom eyes
Softly she whispered "Say Goodbye"

I've fallen through the clouds
And stumbled in the stars
If my feet could touch the ground
They're landing where you are

Lately I've felt alive; only when I close my eyes
I'm falling apart; the angels start to sing
The string's still taught because I never cut through it
"I'm changing for the better but you know I can't prove it"*
I'm so close this time
To leaving it behind

And all this time I’ve been thinking that I brought her to life
She was a star shone bright, eclipsed by how I felt inside

And all this time I’ve been thinking that I brought her to life
And now I long for comfort
And now I long for comfort

Lately I've felt alive; but only when I close my eyes
I'm falling apart; the angels start to sing
The string's still taught because I never cut through it
"I'm changing for the better but you know I can't prove it"*
I'm so close this time
To leaving it behind

Open wide
I'm longing for the other side
Chemistry everyday keeps the thoughts at bay

Black or white?
Her gilded tongue and venom eyes
Softly she whispered "Say Goodbye"
