Track Name: Tragic Figures
You and me, we are a tragedy
I feel it every way
Seeking out a mystery
We bear another day
Feel it slipping through my hands
Every little grain of sand
An illusion
An admission
To formulate a plan

And I’ll meet you at the dawn horizon
And if you don’t come I’ll leave the light on

Was it something we withstood?
Our responsibility
But I miss the autumn nights of East Fork
Stared into the trees

And I’ll meet you at the dawn horizon
And if you don’t come I’ll leave the light on
Track Name: Golden Hour
We’re sick the hours day after day
How long must we still wait?
To never know just what we’re waiting for
‘til it goes away

Golden hour
Golden hour

When the time comes to capture it
We watch as it disappears
Long for hours that moved easier
When we had no fear
Never know just where the time has gone
We watch as it burns to the ground
Each simple theme that has been taken from
The time isn’t now
You can see it

Golden hour
Golden hour

When the time comes to capture it
We watch as it disappears
Long for hours that moved easier
When we had no fear
Never know just where the time has gone
We watch as it burns to the ground
Each simple theme that has been taken from
The time isn’t now
Track Name: Viles
Help me out when it’s over
Violate, then erase it

I hear your engine
It cuts right through me
I wish for sparing moments
To build an illusion,
Build an illusion

Help me out when it’s over
Violate, then erase it

The land is bare now
All empty spaces
There is no purer form than
The snow covered hillside,
Snow covered hillside

Far from me
Can’t explain it, explain it
Help me out
When it’s over, it’s over
Violate
Then erase it, erase it
Open eyes
Lasts a long time, a long time
Track Name: Rabbit
I found you in my dreams again
All wrapped up in your arms
I knew better than to believe
That you were living warm

I placed my lips on yours
So cold, they wouldn’t kiss me back
Not from a lack of want
Because you knew that you were gone too

Just as the light fades
On the hostas and the distant trees
I find the only place you’re real
Is deep inside my dreams

I found you in my dreams again
All wrapped up in your arms
I knew better than to believe
That you were living warm and
Just as the light fades
On the hostas and the distant trees
I find the only place you’re real
Is deep inside my dreams
Track Name: In Your Fire
Ours are the days we’ve caught in glass vials
All in a row on my windowsill
They collect all the light
That pours through them
And before long they glow radiant

Through the glass
The light bends
Now I stand

In your fire
In your fire
Now I stand
In your fire
In your fire
Now I stand

One day they’ll fall onto the ground below
And when they land
They’re sure to explode
Shatters of glass, always a reminder
Everything ends, everything begins

Through the glass
The light bends
Now we stand
Holding hands
Through the glass
The light bends
Now we stand

In your fire
In your fire
Now we stand
Holding hands
In your fire
In your fire
Now we stand
Now we stand
Track Name: Wax Moon
Darkness, come find me here
Shadows, long to be near me

At night I’m swallowed whole
I’m lost, not going home so
Darkness calls me back from your light
How can she hold me?

Your moon
She advances
Your moon
Washes and cleanses

Darkness, come find me here
Shadows, long to be near me
Follow me through the night
So long forever light from

Your moon
She advances

She comes
She comes
She comes
She comes back

Your moon
She advances
Your moon
Washes and cleanses
Track Name: Retrograde
Make sense of time
The hours and days left behind
Dust in the air
Were you ever really there
Or do you

Long to retrograde
All of your memories will fade
Deep in space, time, disappear
One day you’re no longer here

To retrograde
Your memories fade
Through space and time
You only hear me

Long to retrograde
All of your memories will fade
Deep in space, time, disappear
One day you’re no longer here
Falls apart
Deep in your eyes
All of your days left behind
It's the reason I hurt
Deep in space, time, disappear
It's the reason I hurt
One day you’re no longer here
It's the reason I hurt
Track Name: Fortress
Houses and stairs are soft in the gaze
The light as it floods
In the rooms everyday
Houses are bored
In a way that wants nothing more
There’s no escape within walls that are yours

I recognize every night as you lie with me
Something must change
In a way that seems further now
I have no realizations of my own
Living with fear for a sight that’s unknown

Track Name: The Trapeze
I watched you lying there
After falling to the ground
In the wake of soaring air
You were found, you were found

The trapeze
The trapeze
The trapeze
The trapeze

Before you were dying there
I asked myself if you were ok
And by the last breath you took of air
You’re ok, you’re ok

The trapeze
The trapeze
The trapeze
The trapeze
