1. The Wound (19:55)
I waited on your words
Not knowing they’d shatter
As they passed through your lips
Like any other words you’d say
They re-arranged themselves
On the flowers that you lay
They hit me in the throat
And I was lost for words to say

Time heals all wounds, or so they say…

I wait for the death of the garden in which we lay
I lament and regret as I watch you fade
I take this last breath in this sorrows cold decay
I weigh this regret as I begin to fray

Your eyes cut like sharp stone
Digging deeper to white bone
I lay here bound and cold
In a monotone fatigue
I strain to raise my eyes
Beneath the weight of your shadow
Your insistent shimmering gaze
No longer seems to shine

Time heals all wounds, or so they say…

I wait for the death of the garden in which we lay
I lament and regret as I watch you fade
I take this last breath in this sorrows cold decay
I weigh this regret as I begin to fray

You leave me suffocated, you leave me Isolated
You leave me desecrated, you leave me terminated

This blackness rises before me like a wall
My mind reaches beyond, frantic as I fall

I’ll keep waiting now, but I know you’re not here
It still weighs me down, will it disappear?

I wait for the death of the garden in which we lay
I lament and regret as I watch you fade
I take this last breath in this sorrows cold decay
I weigh this regret as I begin to fray

As your words etch themselves in the wound,
I become an afterthought…
2. Rise from Agony (11:12)
I need a saviour here tonight
(Here tonight)
To spill through this cold weak light
I’ve been buried in this shrine
(In this shrine)
In this tomb I’ve become entwined

I can’t see the forest for the trees
I can’t seem to rise from this agony
And I need to sleep for awhile…
I can’t see the dream’s that used to be
I can’t seem to release this misery
And I need to sleep for awhile…

I need release from this pain that binds
(Pain that binds)
Abandoned hope in a world that blinds
Washed away in a crimson tides
(Crimson tides)
Shattered remanence that divides

I can’t see the forest for the trees
I can’t seem to rise from this agony
And I need to sleep for awhile…
I can’t see the dreams that used to be
I can’t seem to release this misery
And I need to sleep for awhile…

I lie here waiting for an end
From this void, can I transcend?
I’m not afraid to close my eyes
With all the scares that cover me
The open wounds and memories
But I’m not afraid to close my eyes

I can’t see the forest for the trees
I can’t seem to rise from this agony
And I need to sleep for awhile…
I can’t see the dreams that used to be
I can’t seem to release this misery
And I need to sleep for awhile…

At horizon’s end
I’ve been waiting slumber to call
As I descend
I’ve been waiting slumber to fall
3. A Cold Day to Face My Failure (11:48)
What hope or reason do I have?
To find faith in what I feel
Will self doubt lead me to failure?
Or will I find strength in something real

Every time I find my wings
I can't find the strength to fly
Every time I cut the strings
I can't seem to break this...

One step forward and three steps back
A cold day to face my failure
Can't I find a way to re-attach?
A cold day to face my failure

I reach out again & again, but in vein
An illusion to cover this pain
The conclusion seems to remain the same
But still only myself to blame

Every time I find my wings
I can't find the strength to fly
Every time I cut the strings
I can't seem to break this tie

One step forward and three steps back
A cold day to face my failure
Can't I find a way to re-attach?
A cold day to face my failure

I see my face, it's withered & grey
Can I seize this day? Before its to late

Can't I ever let this go?
No I won't ever let it go
Can't I ever let this go?
No I won't ever let it go

Every time I find my wings
I can't find the strength to fly
Every time I cut the strings
I can't seem to break this tie

One step forward and three steps back
A cold day to face my failure
Can't I find a way to re-attach?
A cold day to face my failure
4. I Lie in Wait (10:48)
I lie in wait for your soul, I lie in wait for your soul
I lie in wait for your soul, I lie in wait for your soul

The cold moon lights the narrow path
A path you should not take
Your wounds they show the aftermath
In this sorrows bleeding wake

The morning is white, the evening is black
A grey sorrow settles in between
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, you’re bleeding
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, keep reaching

I lie in wait for your soul, I lie in wait for your soul

The midnight sun reflects the light
On the frozen water deep
A red line dotted in white snow
Ever closer to your sleep

The morning is white, the evening is black
A grey sorrow settles in between
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, you’re bleeding
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, keep reaching

Won’t you just let me inside
You can no longer hide
Won’t you just let me inside
To find the one who has died

What I see in these shadows
Cannot be unseen…

I see your light is fading, weak & cold
I see your for the taking, a truth untold

The morning is white, the evening is black
A grey sorrow settles in between
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, you’re bleeding
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, keep reaching

I’ll be waiting this time…
I’ll be waiting this time…
5. Don't Believe Anymore (6:39)
I never counted on this
Guess that's the way that it goes, yeah
You used to be someone I knew
Somebody I could understand but
Now, I don't know what to do
And I don't know who you are, no
All those things, I hear you say
You talk that way, you're a stranger and I

I don't know where to begin
Don't want to hear it again
I don't believe anymore
And this is all I know
I know, I've heard it before
I don't believe anymore

And I remember your voice
Before this happened to us
And I could see and I was sure
And everything was young and new but
We lost it too many times
And that's the way that it is
Lovers come and lovers go
When you think you know
It just isn't true, oh

I don't know where to begin
Don't want to hear it again
I don't believe anymore
And this is all I know
I know, I've heard it before
I don't believe anymore

I don't know where to begin
Don't want to hear it again
I don't believe anymore
And this is all I know
I know, I've heard it before
I don't believe anymore

Don't believe anymore
Don't believe anymore
Don't know where to begin
Don't want to hear it again
Don't believe anymore
And this is all I know
I know, I've heard it before
Don't believe anymore
6. In the Lilac Dusk (10:37)
In the lilac dusk it comes
Under silver stars and a glowing crimson moon
Weaving through the dark cold rain
In this slanted mist, I reach upward in rigid pain

My light it burns out slowly
As my frozen voice echoes in silence
Shadows move across these skies
Over this hollow world, motionless I raise my eyes

Born is my burden, stinging with this grief
Aching in silence, no words that bring relief
A semblance of warmth, never to be found
I whisper to the earth, but I stand on hollow ground

Under my darkened veil
Still lies my silver crown
I grip with these hands so frail
But still I can’t seem to hold it down
Buried under my darkened veil
Still lies my silver crown
Waves rise and crash around me
In this loneliness I drown

These shores are silent, calved in eternal black
The sky is swollen with rain, shaken from fleeting light
The serpent's parting words
Hang with gloom in my weary head
Ghost-like clouds descend
As I brood with sombre eyes

Under my darkened veil
Still lies my silver crown
I grip with these hands so frail
But I still can’t seem to hold it down
Buried under my darkened veil
Still lies my silver crown
Waves rise and crash around me
In this loneliness I drown

Words fall without a sound and
I know the purity of my despair
The shining silence of scorn cuts through
As this world dissolves around me
I stand here cold and shivering
In this cloud of secret despair…

And this moment clung to me
With it’s heavy cloak of dread…
7. Waiting for the Endless Dawn (3:44)
…And I wait for an endless dawn
To rise before me
And I seek the burning of a new sun
To chase away these ever falling shadows

…Waiting for the endless dawn
