Track Name: Tides
she feeds my flame with poison lungs
trade my heart for a buried soul
take my mind
away from her
Track Name: Lost Child
frantic deep, hopeless dreams
scattered all over the carpet
we don’t want it
bones and eyes, sick and tired
no support and no vision we we’re sliding
off the highway

broken soul, lost and cold
elegiac reflections indicted
never spoken or cited
lo, lost boys, hear my voice
in extremis your heavy souls cry
so silent and dry

i hear your reticent self-loathing monologues
waiting my turn to speak waiting behind the walls
eyes to the ground with an angel above
but you cling to the earth as you curse everyone
because yesterday’s laughing and you were unraveling
brain in a cage while your spirit was traveling
now you’re alone but your friends are still watching
the hands that you felt are still there and they’re calling you
back to home

lost child

speak your mind, sleepless night
i am open as oceans, remind me
come and find me

buried seeds, underneath
no more nostrums and palliatives, cure me
i adjure thee

i hear your reticent self-loathing monologues
waiting my turn to speak waiting behind the walls
eyes to the ground with an angel above
but you cling to the earth as you curse everyone
because yesterday’s laughing and you were unraveling
brain in a cage while your spirit was traveling
now you’re alone but your friends are still watching
the hands that you felt are still there and they’re calling you
back to home

lost child
Track Name: Dear Brother
i’m seething, burning breathing
begging you to save me
i want to watch the waves
but you instead watch me, nothing doing
i wonder why you’re silent
i doubt you are the pilot of this plane
i wonder why you’re silent
i doubt you are the pilot of this plane

dear brother, clearly others
are asking the same questions
they’re looking for to rest their heads
but still something keeps them waking
blinking slumber from their eyes
to lie awake in shaded night

but still we wait for you, to take us and make us fly
and you, you,
you wait for us to make our own wings
and from these rivers rise

there are three voices inside of me
each one is its own anomaly
one’s me, one’s you, one’s an evil jeer
just who’s been talking for all these years?
you are telling me not to fear
but when the devil is your mirror
speaking words that will seem to sooth
leaving you wounded distorting truth
misty shadows will hide the trees
knowledge fading like memories
time to trust things I cannot see
to trust you when you say “come, follow me”
Track Name: Coaxial
if i had time to arrive to a clear conclusion of what i want
i couldn’t hide if i tried it’s weird illusion of all my thoughts
string a rope to this hope-grown garden of mine redefine it
will i ever find her will i ever even have the time

breathe
what do you want
breathe
what do you want


if i could see through the trees to the floating forest i tried to find
then would it be what i need, would have to settle and would i mind
is it greed that i feed, are you worth the gamble and worth the cost
don’t expect perfection, are my dreams in reason or a cause lost

breathe
what do you want
breathe
what do you want
breathe
what do you want
Track Name: Shift
i’m calling for your name in an overwhelming sea
and do you even exist or am i caught in overthinking
i am sinking and i’m sending out an SOS
but the best i can render’s not a call of distress

it’s unrest in my chest, it’s been filled before
but now devoid of all color and i’m thirsty for more
if i knew your name i’d fly banners and flags
and if i knew where you were i’d be packing my bags

dear nameless, dear faceless
i’m tired of shallow waters and i want to dive deeper
dear nameless, dear faceless
i’m hoping that you’re close, honey, heart gatekeeper

dear nameless, dear faceless
i’m hoping that you’re close, honey, heart gatekeeper
Track Name: The Lighthouse
i know you’re out there
(calling)
i can feel it
(haunting)
a mirror of me
(visions)
so bright and fearless
(listen)

my heart is swelling
(rising)
i’m getting closer
(finding)
all senses telling
(breathing)
the night is almost over
(reaching)


i don’t know if i can handle this
it’s so much to take in
no, please don’t stop i cannot turn around
we’re almost at the end
and it’s not ending now
the only thing that ends is all the
pain i've propagated
and the torture i’ve afforded
now it’s over
this is me
i can see

my destination’s patiently awaiting my escaping this
nightmarish hesitation now it’s gone and i’m no stationary boy
anymore
i am off
of the floor
newborn spirit
newborn spirit

i’ve finally arrived


open up wide, open your eyes
i’m finally alive

open windows, open dreams tonight

open your eyes, open up wide
i’ve finally arrived
open windows, open dreams tonight

standing on a lighthouse
trying not to fall apart
i’m holding onto hope but i am frantic
staring out into the dark

looking out into a black sea
something’s calling to my heart
if you can understand me
thirty-one flashes in the dark

standing on a lighthouse
trying not to fall apart
i’m holding onto hope but i am frantic
staring out into the dark

i know you're out there
something's calling to my heart
if you can understand me
thirty-one flashes in the dark
Track Name: Alive, Lucid
white shroud
you don't close your
eyes

you've recovered, little brother
from the things that have been haunting you
you're alright, you'll sleep tight

scary shadows lonely battles are all over
they are gone and through
rest your hands, yes you can
finally

so rip off your sleeves and run
nobody here to hold you from the only one you ever wanted that you always talked about in your dreams
that gave you feelings of light, and fiery visions of flight
you know it's right here
you've no need to fear

white clouds
and gold, you know
rise

so pick up your sheaves and run,
nobody here to hold you from golden sun
that shined twenty thousand times brighter than the regular one,
that gave you visions and dreams
and everything you ever wanted to be
you're safe up here with me

you are still my son
