Track Name: Silhouette
silhouette
only your outer line
shape of my indecision
as of yet
details are undefined
true to your definition
i doubted
separated by some eclipse
found the right words
but they only died on my lips
they always die on my lips
silhouette
you must be something real
remember the time it's taken thought i'd forget
come on now, it's no big deal
you'd think so, but you're mistaken
i'm tired
and everything disconnects
but i can't wait
to find out what will happen next
tell me what happens next i always miss, inanely
what others see so plainly
it takes a time or two for me
with every color graying and every word you're saying
losing all trace of clarity
Track Name: Chance Of Sunbreaks
it's beyond me how i could have missed
it wasn't supposed to end up like this
written all over my face
desperation and self doubt
gotta get back to a place
where the sun sometimes comes out
leave it all without a trace and drop out
say the word
i'm waiting, give the sign
every element of your design
out of sight
your wishes never show
say the word and just like that we'll go
paying for the things i've long ignored
holding on to dreams i can't afford
aspiration in arrears
leaving me pale and grim-faced
and the ever passing years
waning too few now to waste
we can't wait until it clears
so make haste
Track Name: Forget What You've Heard
i need to start up again
something to get me excited
places where i've never been
i need to begin take me through the open door
where to go cannot conceive
but i know that i can't stay here
i need somebody to see
someone to believe
that i can do something more
after a while you could forget what you've heard
another mile, but know i meant every word
stay here with me, while i am passionate yet
for i won't live a life ordinary in regret
i need the sun on my face
warm me up to the idea
quickening every pace
revealing a place
where i can be satisfied
i'm often in sight
i wanna be there
there's no greater height
of this i'm aware
never before today
even outside a dream
did so far away it seem
from where i sit a mile high
i could give up
i could go on
Track Name: Material
you know it's always difficult to trace
the subtle expression moving on your face
this side of you i haven't ever seen before
asking me if i ever want something more
i do
there's melody in everything you say striking a chord with me that i can't play
all cares suspend
from start to end
of your simple symphony the sound is clear
refrain sincere
do you feel the same as me?
i do
Track Name: Plume
set it up
burn it down
and in vain the fires will erupt and surround
but the pain inspires
warming hands by the heat
that i'm doomed to repeat
again and again
beneath the spreading flame
under the poison plume
i always feel the same
whenever these thoughts i assume
you'd better know your way though this
you're choking on your every care
just fi nd a way to breathe the thinning air
it's a game
it's a toss
probably regret it
it's the same
at a loss
and i still don't get it
i think it's time now to show
i've moved on
i've let go
can you feel it? can you keep it up?
can you say it?
or have you said enough?
i think i've found a way through this
i'm swallowing my every care
and now i'm breathing in a new days air
Track Name: Mulberry
i'll take the lead
catch me if you can
one final look
we're never going back again
come on you can't miss
follow me and see
you're making this
harder than it has to be
it's in your eyes
i can't explain
not in disguise
but not the same
do i even know you anymore?
falling apart
this i can attest
but i know your heart continues beating in your chest
when to begin?
tomorrow, so you say
i wonder when tomorrow will become today
try to pretend there's nothing wrong
are you the friend i knew so long?
further delay
should i do some more?
what could i say
that i haven't said before?
if i could do
one thing, certainly
i'd inspire you
the way you once inspired me
consider this
the choice you make
before you bend so far you break
there's little left
of hope, i mean
the rest of it is vanishing
Track Name: Some Other Way
taken back by some other way
'till i've another one
still, it's unnerving
this small force today
what can i say
i'm numb
overhead the greatest moment has come
but has fl own to high to be of use to an ordinary man
even one who tries
and although my hope does retire
hope that it might return
though by myself
i could start up a fire
the flames would no longer burn
Track Name: Gravity Boots
driving nowhere
driving fast
and the days are fl ying past
my momentum slows and i brake for the coming turn
circle once around the block
taking notice of the clock
it turns out of time and in spite of my will
skips a beat while my heart stands still
think you'll figure it out?
think you'll ever begin?
think you'll ever amount to much?
do you think you'll win?
gotta plan
got to devise
getting older but never wise
i've a dream that won't pay
but that's all pending
it's in my debt for the years i'm spending give me something to say
give me something to do
something other than what i have
give me what i'm due
Track Name: Seed
intent on coming clean
unfolding with the scene
and on the paper waded and tossed on the floor
she idles by and counts
the days while pressure mounts
sick with regret and fearing all tomorrow
doors once open now are shut
maybe they're not locked yet, but
do you wonder?
is it too late?
was it worth it?
was it so great?
do you wonder how different everything might have been?
and could it be again?
i can't know how you feel
no wisdom to reveal
but it's hard to see you bearing all this by yourself
won't condescend to you
there's nothing i can do
for what it's worth, though, you can make it through this
broken heart and broken will
and you're not broken yet, but still
disappointed, i confess
but i don't love you any less
Track Name: Fall Out Of Line
walking it hand in hand and free while you're impacted
don't you go and abandon me when i'm distracted
begin again and i'll be fine
what'd you mean to say?
i'm having a most difficult time hearing you today
come on up why are you waiting?
do i have to say i'm sorry?
would you consider staying another day in spite
of the things i've been saying?
so i can make it right
don't fall out of line
so name the place i'll meet you there
you stopped and then said
€œbut i wasn't going anywhere, how'd that get in your head?€
how soon do i forget
i must be slow
haven't got it yet
do what i must, i guess that's fair
but i face it with dread
can i be candid
angry and honest
insubordinate, too?
look where we've landed
see where you've brought us
i'm losing faith in you
Track Name: Hello To Never
goodbye to what if
hello to never
so long to someday too
just dig a hole
and put my coffin under how many times
have i tried to sever?
how long until i'm through
but if i let go
i know i'll often wonder
so never run
i can think a way out of it
don't pretend to know how
but i know why
try to swim but don't sink
come up above it
treading water right now
it's do or die
i know better than anyone it's true
i'm getting on but i'm getting better, too
admit defeat
let down your defenses
why do you have to fight
a losing cause to find the thing you're missin'?
know when you're beat and come to your senses
still, i'm compelled to write
without applause
and though no one will listen
give it up and get away
i shouldn't wonder
in a decade or a day
it's hard to tell
give it up or get it right
i'm going under yeah, but not without a fight
it's just as well.
i know better than anyone could guess
i'm getting tired of all this now, i confess
if only my art
could somehow relate
then maybe my life
would then imitate
the things i'd contrive
and not what i feel
but it wouldn't be right
it wouldn't be real
don't look now
they're coming after you
dig in, though you don't know what to do
something's gonna happen any day
but what i can't say
Track Name: I Can Awake
this one i can beat
this one i'll survive
if i could rest
with meaning replete
while hope is alive and thought suppressed
and when i look out
the universe slings
a shooting star
don't want to see doubt
i want to see things
for what they are
but if i can awake
from a dream i mistake for reality then would you let me in?
and sanity blurs
give credit to chance if it is due
the thought of it stirs me out of a trance
i'm coming to
afraid to be right
afraid to be wrong
too high the stakes
while up on the fence
can i see the beyond my own mistakes?
my energy is gone
and sleep is coming on
be quiet let me be
alone here with my dreams
visions of happy things
although it's pointless when
i won't remember them
Track Name: Imaginary Friend
reflecting in quiet places where you haunt
the unsuspecting
you're almost everything i want you to be
perfection undiluted found
but as for me
i can't get my head around you at all
i'm troubled i'll wonder to the very end
why always i'm followed by my imaginary friend
just you run along
you haven't heard a word i've said
back where you belong
confined within a book i've read
still you sing your song
and now it's sticking in my head yet again
maybe i'm too hard to convince
lately you've started making sense
i'll say
as of a recent find
you're not just in my mind
somehow i just wanna be sure
right now i'm somewhat insecure
i know you're calling me a friend
but tell me once again
