Track Name: Glyphs
Pull away at heavy rope
And delicately play your pride
A dozen proofs
Waiting for the time to come
You smile though you crave release
The fickle in your narrow lips
Change my mood
Cause in your eyes I see you run
Is it justified
How it never matters to some

It crossed my mindde
Maybe I might fall
It crossed my mind
You could be the end all

Lay your head beside my own
A reminder that we live for bliss
Honest lies
Safety in denial undone
If the room alights
What will yesterday become

It crossed my mind
I was meant to recall
This former life
Track Name: Safety
Caught a glimpse of you
Through my empty glass
Then I disappeared
From the body's grasp
I keep searching for answers without any questions
I keep risking my blessings for infatuations

Cause I know safety is not for me
Cause I know uncertain is what I seek, I seek
I couldn't shake the truth
This wouldn't mean a thing

Caught a glimpse of you
In the fog filled streets
Yeah I lied to myself
I lied repeteadly

Cause I know safety is not for me, for me
Cause I know uncertain is what I seek, I seek
Couldn't shake the truth
This wouldn't mean a thing (x4)
Track Name: Under The Veil
Days were numbered in black chalk
Couldn't predict the outcome
We resorted to small talk
When our presence was outdone
By the violent flickering of memories
The outro of any chemistry

Get a little bit older
Complacent inaction
The romance is colder
When it stems from reaction
Are we truly the love we seek
Are we truly the love we seek

(What did we have)
Somedays I see it another way love
(What did we have)
Somedays I see it another way love

Brilliant life under the veil
Brilliant life under the veil
Brilliant life under the veil

Somedays I know I've been outrun
By the vision of myself
The fears I couldn't repell
Somedays I know I've been outrun
When I can't swallow the truth
Wanted to see me and you
Somedays I know I've been outrun
By the vision of myself
The fears I couldn't repell
Somedays I know I've been outrun
When I can't swallow the truth
Wanted to see me and you

In a little of time I
See you under the veil
See you under the veil
Somedays I know I've been outrun
When I see me and you
When I see me and you
Track Name: Love Is
Though you believe you're just a girl colored by gray
You're the sweetest thing, I can honestly say
Can't describe everything you mean to me
A vision through an echo, the blood behind belief

My days are restless when you stray this far
Don't listen to the silence, you're the ease behind the heart
I take for granted how much you've given to me
The love that keeps on and on
This is where I belong

Think about the moment where I am
This is where my love has stayed with you
With you
With you
Track Name: Stillness
Stillness remains, feel how little has changed
Put on the same face, struggle the same ways
It gets harder to trust and to trust myself
Not enough to believe it, its a burden to keep it

What makes a man
What makes a man try to be worthy
What makes a man
What makes a man turn away
What makes a man
What makes a man give in to not knowing
What makes a man
What makes a man become the same

Give up belief for one day's pay
Keep looking straight up
Though the greed won't look back at us
And these previous primes keep us in the past
Feel the ease in what we know
As the forward pulls us close

(Chorus)
Track Name: Brae
Still alive, barely dreaming
Loveless home under cedar trees
Where did my love go?
Where did my love go?

Tender blood behind this facade
Long disguised by this heavy skin of mine

I line my demons on a shelf
I try to be somebody else
Truth is I'm hardly honest with myself

(Its up to you)
Repeat what came before
(Its up to you)
Or seek out something more
Where did my love go?
Where did my love go?

Days desired, the aging outline
Shame and pride that I long to leave behind
You hold ambition on your own
You tally years into the bone
Together weary of this life alone

(Chorus)
Track Name: From This Day Forward (Vitare)
Meadows breathe our apprehensions
Dance to all our triumphs
And talk of all our sorrows
Carousels stop turning
Children's cries are fading
Fade within our memories

Yes the hour glass is turning upside down
As I realize you're not coming back

I've become so secondary
You hardly have time
To look into my greying eyes
I've become so lonely
I can't help but feel
Feel as if you've grown tired

Yes the hour glass is turning upside down
As I realize you're not coming back
Yes the hour glass is turning upside down
As I realize I'm living this alone
Alone

I remember when we first had visions of grandeur,
we'd sit beside the meadows
while carousels were turning
with apprehensions fading.
Now I'm living this alone.
