Track Name: seasonal
Breaking through the waves again
floating by the waters edge, where i lay my mind to rest
sun beat down on my face
harsh south-east blows in the trees, no footprints in the sand
feel like i'm the only one on this earth, so at ease
and this day, seasonal
winter fade, seasonal
this is a time to renew, clean the slate, wash away
this is a place to escape, shed the skin, wash away
memory erased
and in my mind i hibernate
waiting for dawn to break
sun shine through the clouds again
winter fade start afresh
season of spring, season of spring
breathe into me, wash over me
the season of spring
peace by the sea, where i feel free
Track Name: ghostwriter
What did you expect, it's always been this way
looking for the chance to finally feel complete
years fly by, you only live the past
disowned, by myself, don't ask why
i'm losing battles that i've already won
i'm fighting demons that are already dead
because you left
left that space inside my head
empty space without a trace
feelings all but lost inside
emotion hard to fight, emotion now is hard to find
the dull void, an empty well
cobwebs in a jaded hell
these are the things that i don't want you to hear
the hidden traits that i fucking fear
there's certain things i keep inside
the darkside of my mind
there's certain things i cannot find
the darkside of my mind
these are the things that i don't want you to see
say goodbye to all of those thoughts
say goodbye to everything
say goodbye to a mind locked in the past and all i've kept inside
breaking and taking this home i've been making
waking and faking these breaths i've been taking
life takes ahold, time takes it's toll
life takes ahold, takes control
Track Name: separation anxiety
Words written in stone, or so i thought
stupid of me to think you'd carry the weight
not sorry for placing bets, just this once the odds seemed good
for a west coast boy, no heart on sleeve
trainwreck body and the scars to prove
reading notes returned to sender and three years later
mixing drinks down memory lane
got the taste for lost romance, i need more
monday through sunday, dawn til dusk
the hangover of us, dead and gone
crossing out itineraries, sydney nights and long haul flights
the hardest part, b.i.l.y., left behind
forever lost, we'll be forever lost
forever lost and now those days are gone
and the pressure keeps building all around
knocks my feet of the ground, it's like i've been here before
and the pressure still building all around
when my head hits the ground, she kept my head in the clouds
forever lost, we'll be forever lost
forever lost and now those days are gone
Track Name: anywhere
Long since the day, i last saw your face
the distance between gets a little hard to bare sometimes
can't seem to keep my two feet on the ground
constantly wandering, these are the ties that bind
ink in the skin to remind, so defined
never healed and never out of mind
you are always by my side
maps drawn by hand to direct, so complex
lead the day when we're far apart
seas may divide, mountains block our view
so far out of sight, you are always in my thought
seas may divide, mountains block our view
you are always in my thought
and though we are so far apart, you are always here in my heart
i'm singing this song for you, you mean so much
you opened my eyes, opened my mind, you changed the world for me
i'm writing these words for you, you mean so much
you opened my eyes, opened my mind, you changed the world for me
singing this song, writing these words for you
i hope you'll hear, i hope you know
and as the sun it sets today, your star will always lead the way, anywhere
and though we're always far apart, you're present here in my hear, everywhere
Track Name: endless roads
Face facts, we're all just stumbling through
trapped in a space, told no way out
no dead end roads, that's what we say
won't let a system weigh down on me
no victims, no boundaries
redraw the lines that hold us back
places we are forced into, led to pasture by our peers, break away
as far as i can see the horizon's far and wide
as far as i can tell there's no reason to fall in line
because we are free, we are free to roam these endless roads
don't tell me what i can't do, don't tell us where we can't be
don't tell me what i can't do, don't tell me
endless roads, we'll forge our own
endless roads, so far from home
Track Name: rain eyes
Reflect against a mirror of yesterday
laughter we shared, a moment of clarity
the best ones you know, the first ones to go
so think back, look deep within, don't let the burden suck you in
i know there are times we question reasoning
the best ones you know, the first ones to go
and now we're grown up, we forgot all we had to say
like sand running through our hands, eroding days away
against a window of yesterday
drama we shared, wouldn't change a thing
the best ones you know, the first ones to go
in the end tragedy closes in
stealing young lives before they even begin
and taking old lives that need to be read
the best ones you know, the first ones to go
we won't forget times that were shared, the memories remain
we won't forget times that were shared, the knowledge engrained
so flick through old photographs, remember the lives that have come to pass
holding back the years that come so fast
as the tears roll down your face
the pain of seeing your love laid waste
this is not in vain, we will not forget
now we're grown up, we forgot all we had to say
like sand through our hands, eroding days away
we won't forget times that were shared, the memory embraced
Track Name: skeleton key
For all the days i spent waiting
the expectation i was craving
dead dreams that had me chasing
i finally turned them around
as the new day arrives, the lock is broke
and i will listen no more
i won't steady myself for another fall, that's not asking too much
Track Name: unsaid
She walks away hanging her head
there was a time when she walked without shame
he walks so tall, proud of his prey
there's nothing wrong he's just one of the boys
what about the struggle?
what of hidden rage?
what is left of her self respect?
what about the wreckage that is left unsaid
purity tainted now in shame
he tries to justify, make it seem right, never taking blame
there is no way to accept, crime he commits, the damage is done
its a fucking disgrace, no second thought, the damage is done
