Track Name: West
Former flames start to descend
Translucent days comes to an end
The light sinks through burning skies
Night takes over with Luna's eyes

In the wake of seeds once sown
Tangled in the roots we grow
Somewhere in the mind unknown
Now is the moment we must let go

The moon shines with stolen light
Could we be more than just the tides?
Track Name: Demons
Oh whisper, these demons in my ear
Oh whisper, these things I hate to hear
Oh whisper, soft lips of fire red flames
These demons are too crystal clear for me to see

And he tells her to fall to her knees because it’s all she’ll amount to
Hands falling to her side, fists hit like words with stale intent
Golden corruption with rosy cheeks and glassy eyes, this she won’t do

Oh whisper, these demons in my ear
Oh whisper, these things I hate to hear
Oh whisper, soft lips of fire red flames
These demons are too crystal clear for me to see

Seek the fallen angels of an underworld, suck me in
Seduce me demons with your power I will not give in

The bead of sweat on your brow is the spit of the serpent that bit you

I will not give in to you demons
Track Name: Angels
Wings knocking at my heart
Where’s my faith gone?
Listen to the heart beat of a crippled mind
Words crumbled to dust
I blame it on time

The sun rises over the path
That carries so many wrongs
My eyes simmer grey, raindrops from hazy blue
Where’s my trust gone
I blame it on lies

Angels beneath me
Carry me on, carry me on
Sink me into this ground
Carry me on, carry me on
We can carry on, we can carry on
Warp my perception of this light
We can carry on, we can carry on
Angels beneath me
Help me to carry on

Save me from my weakness
From nights cold and sleepless

This time around I won’t fall to my knees
This time around I’ll send it over the seas
Angels, carry me with you
So I can melt into the sunrise of this transparent day

My flesh will fail before my heart gives in
So bring on hell; I'll bring them to an end
Track Name: Sirens
Cement hearts and wandering thoughts
Give in, your murmur, give in

The calm before the storm
Left me sinking in ally ways and back streets
This wanting has never left me so dry
Yet the rain like waves crash upon me

You're a capsizing soul
With no one to call home
If I die out here in the city
What will you recall of me?

The calm before the storm
Left me sinking in ally ways and back streets
This wanting has never left me so dry
Yet the rain like waves crash upon me

Those eyes were the iris of the storm
Deceptively beautiful hues
What never sounded the alarm
Was captivated by the allure of you.

Dusty rain waters my tendered soil
Rust and shine were never aligned
Hitting sobriety at the break
Where the sky takes me as it’s bate
You’re a capsizing soul

Will you see me for who I used to be or the siren that deceived the night ever so softly?
Track Name: Wolves
Roaming through the bristles and the weeds, tossing and turning what’s to be learnt
There’s rough terrain up ahead but glazing these roads never felt so surreal
Towering steeples with burnt red eyes and a keen sense of life
We’re free in this moment in time

Run, run little wolves, run
For this earth is just a home
And our bodies and bones are still unknown
Clocks are running us out like thieves

Creek beds up ahead, hurdling through crossroads and road blocks on this eve
The sky so demanding of its warmth that hits the skin on our sleeve
Seizing every breath that’s given and so easily shipped away
We’re free in this moment in time

Run, run little wolves, run
For this earth is just a home
And our bodies and bones are still known
Clocks are running us out like thieves

Running with the wolves
Track Name: Luna
Silver grey with age and all the wiser
Holding every haunt and livid gyser
She stares, watching you

Phases as she pleases in the black
Wearing every wrinkle, every crack
She stares, watching you

Luna cannot keep her eyes to herself
Luna cannot keep her eyes to herself

I’m baffled by a miracle and spin your own planet
You seek a perfect fortune so in ten years you can blame it
You’ve mastered arithmetic but cannot speak your own language
When you do it’s trivial to the victims of the damage

Luna cannot keep her words to herself
Luna cannot keep her words to herself

Mother Nature of the night
Track Name: Sol
Will there ever be less instead of more
Without scars without sores
Fading gently into shores
Can a scene provide a cure?

Sky will wink and play its game
Minutes try to take me
Sun acts as a starry-eyed stranger
Bows and exits freely

Will there ever be less instead of more
Without scars without sores
Fading gently into shores
Can a scene provide a cure?

If landscapes are imagined
And pigments are for dreaming
Is the beast inside you
A subconscious scheming?
Track Name: Vagabond
There goes the pistol
Shattering the cellophane
Passive, the active that I maintain
A passerby, standing by in vain

Rustic oranges pick my steps
Dare not the darkness to a test
Bent smiles and crooked teeth
Flimsy fingers fighting reach

Where are you, now?
If you’d like to make yourself known
I’m calling out
To the author of this conquerable dream
I won’t yell and I won’t scream
City streets are swallowing me
I wait for you to hesitate for me

Brooklyn took me out to sea
And rung my iron lessons free
Powder sitting in the cage
Reminds the violent brigade
And falter crawling in my step
Snake away and silver crept
I am vagabond, never steady
And home’s a heart that’s rarely ready

Where are you now?
If you’d like to make yourself known
I’m calling out
To the author of this conquerable dream
And I won’t yell
And I won’t scream
These city streets are swallowing me
I wait for you to hesitate for me

I am vagabond, never steady
And home’s a heart that’s rarely ready
Track Name: Flame
Hills hold the hands of a rusty sky
And a violet shadow awakens a tiny cry
Do we see eye to eye?

Will he take it?
Take a soul without a cinder to its name?
Despite the proof of a dozen former flames

Santa Anna's peeling the exit away
Sandy era whispers a story to date
I am on the fray

Will he take it?
Take a soul without a cinder to its name?
Despite the proof of a dozen former flames

Desert sun is painting a mile-wide canvas
And flickers of a song fit for the scene
But I define my peace

Will he take it?
Take a soul without a cinder to its name?
Despite the proof of a dozen former flames

I wait, pavements sit in silence with me
And heat stretches golden arms, cannot breathe
I choke, but there's a game I won't play
So I rise, ashes stay as ashes today
Track Name: Swing
Oh, ha, a blur
All I needed to confirm
Taxi cab, velvet shot
Tasting what I long forgot

Oh, ha, a blur
No response to silly words
What’s the name again?
Swear I never will forget

Watch me slip, and it all goes down
Midnight fist ‘round a golden crown
No telling what the clock tower brings

We wait for the five a.m. swing
(Colors spin, alluring)
We wait for the five a.m. swing
(Self-assured and yearning)
We wait for the five a.m. swing
(Night is for the fearless)
We wait for the five a.m. swing
(Stealing seconds senseless)

Light me up
Skyline, oh please
You rewind me
Sunrise, I flee

Colors spin, alluring
Self-assured and yearning
Night is for the fearless
(Five a.m. swing)
Stealing seconds senseless
(Five a.m. swing)

Light me up
Skyline, oh please
You rewind me
Sunrise, I flee
Track Name: Roots
Roots at my feet, and the world at my finger tips
I’m ready to run but I’m grounded
Finding refuge in the dark places hidden beneath me
In the wind, in the trees, in the sun, in the moon

I’m comforted by the cool caress on my face
Leaves like my past turn to gold and fall
The world below me is covered in my mistakes
I can’t see, I can’t breathe, I can’t be

Little beasts eating at my insides, but I heal
I’m falling slowly but I’m building on stones
I’m restoring a life that’s riddled in blunders and smiles
In the wind, in the trees, in the sun, in the moon

Branching from my mind are words I’ve said
Promises I made and wish to still keep
Dew drops fall, tears of a desire to survive and love
I want to grow tall; I want to reach the top of my being

You’ll catch it
You’ll trace it
You’ll perceive it
You’ll become it
You’ll live it
You’ll revive it
You’ll suffer through it
You’ll face it
You’ll bear it

You’ll fall so gracefully
You’ll heal with grace
Track Name: East
Sol rises through clouds of smoke
His rays revealing the city cloaked

Carry this weight (aimlessly wandering)
As we shed seductions chased (through the darkness)
Clocks swing the night away (anxiously waiting)
The vagabond that never stays (for the morning)

The demons fall, the angels call
The sirens sing, but the wolves run free
