Track Name: Arrows
Pressed up against the glass, the five moons shining in
Ghosts refuse to disappear into the ether
Moments fade like sparks in the rain
Drowned out and washed away

Surrounded by opalescence, lungs expand and contract
To the rhythm of the breaking dawn
Clocks slowly reversing while colors explode into goodbyes

Crossing the front and back of your eyes
Let them echo let them leave
When day breaks attach your teeth
Chasing sirens is no way to live
Just follow the arrows
Before long you’ll note acceptance is addiction

Ideas come to you like whispers in the breeze

Surrounded by opalescence, lungs expand and contract
To the rhythm of the breaking dawn
Clocks slowly reversing while colors explode into goodbyes
Track Name: Aurora Borealis
Shapes made to fit
The last thing I see before I rise
Vibrant colors leave me
Bring the rain
Levees crack and then fail

An unattainable goal, she’s invisible
An unintelligible prayer, she’s invincible

You find it harder and harder to care
No one will lay the blame
With every word, we want more

Bookmarks in place, set the walls aflame
Obsessed with living in an illusion
Raise your head and take it in
Goodnight, goodnight

An unattainable goal, she’s invisible
An unintelligible prayer, she’s invincible

Bookmarks in place, set the walls aflame
A stack of blank pages
Will adorn these shelves no longer
Goodnight, goodnight
Track Name: Lights & Hallways
On this platform I wait
While a faceless calamity looms
On the horizon
Allow me, allow me to swallow the sun

Amongst the leaves
We walk the same path
Restless at 3 AM
I refuse

Fear not, I’m in love
It will see us through

These stars burn bright
Are they brighter than yours?
There’s better living through darkness
Anxiety spreads across two worlds

Amongst the leaves
We walk the same path
Sleepless at 4 AM
I refuse

Fear not, I’m in love
It will see us through
Track Name: Consulting On A Quandary
Longing to hold hands with shadows and ghosts
Rationale be damned, they’re unforgiving
Weaving through dreamless sleep
Pushing and pulling, they’re not as they seem
These lines aren’t as straight as you might think
Caught between points A and B tethered to
The idea of silence, take solace in the promise
Of the fluidity of the cold dark air and starless nights
Deafening echoes identify with us
And we’ll all see just how much

There’s smoke in the distance
And it’s getting closer with increasing speed
Left twisting in the wind while time’s running out
Shallow graves litter the foreground marked only by the clocks

Stick to the edge until the end
In the harshest light we’re all waiting for violence
The channels flicker and fade as static remains deceiving

And we’ll all see just how much

Running in circles and chasing a sun that’s long been eclipsed
It’s taken hold and worn us down, fractured from the inside
Eyes pleading, soul screaming: Regroup and wake up
Track Name: A Developing Story
You say you’ve found peace
Actions speak louder than words
Tearing the night sky in two
The fires have obscured the stars
Selfishness masquerades as fearlessness

Tonight we’ll sleep
But there may not come rest

You say you’ve found peace
Actions speak louder than words
Tearing the night sky in two
The fires have obscured the stars
Selfishness masquerades as fearlessness

Tonight we’ll sleep
But there may not come rest

Today is always dire and unpredictable
Breathe
Track Name: Greyshot
Baseless accusations, the scourge of the earth
You’ve left me breathing underwater
I’m grasping at straws and hung up on flaws
Staring, fixated on the distance

The edge of the earth is so clear
Now let’s all close our eyes

We’ll wait for the storm to pass
Standing hand in hand
And smile as they all fall down
Branch by branch and limb from limb
