Track Name: Everything Obsolete
Signal us.
Our response are waves and sounds.
They stagger forth, and sputter out. --Don't we all?

And when we fall apart, I won't care what unfolds.
Because I feel, I see, I know I'm not so useless.

I can still be--
Track Name: Mannerisms & Misconceptions
In a fright, and in despair, we are too lost to find our way home.
So frail and weak, self-deposed and demeaning to every sense of sympathy.

In silent company with sleep, I sit, awake and listening. But we're too blind to see the source of every meaning:
the more we change, the more we stay the same.

And we weather pain together, causing the lines to tense and fray.

I wait for another day, but that won't suffice.
I'll hold on tight--
I will stay alive.

I wait, but I still can't deny that I still believe.
I still believe in the light.
Track Name: Formations
can't we start over?
But it's so hard when we repeat over and over again.
Over, and over again.

Can't we sleep to dream? This time; we all will see...

"Waste not, want not" my conscience says.
Praying for some relief is all I'll ever have.

"Waste not, want not" my conscience says.
Waiting for some belief is all I'll ever have.

Waste not, want not.
Track Name: Redemption Song
I know what comes and goes. Alone, and in the cold.
I am what carries on. I am what's come and gone.

Please, I need to be in an all too-familiar place to hide.
and I try to show perspective, to show my faces when I look into your eyes.

I know what's right and wrong.
Amidst the lights, amidst the waves; "what have I become?"
I am the only one.
When all is said and done.

Please, I need to be in an all too-familiar place to hide.
And I try to feign away to beg forgiveness, but half truths are nothing but whole lies.

Please, I need a place to hide. And I try.
But my sins have swallowed all my pride.
Track Name: You're Not Here
Oh, I recall what I once was...
And I stray, and push away, and I will lose myself within my own disguise.

Hey, It was over from the start, and in time, It'll fade away...
I cannot find my, cannot find my--

...But you're not here.
And I hide, and I cry, and I remember all those nights when you were by my side.

Hey, don't cry for me; I'd wipe your tears away...
But I cannot find my way to realize we'll see through these lies. I cannot find my way--

How long will it take for these eyes to finally see that love is only skin deep? Try as I may to forgive you, my eyes are closed and I will finally see:

Hey, this heart will ache no more for you, in vain. I cannot find my
way to realize there isn't a lie. We cannot find our way back home.
Track Name: Acquiescence
we're gone.
Lost within all of these things that we've become.
Engulfed in this facade that we cannot call our own.
Hold on to what once was; to everything that we know.
It's all wrong, it's all the same, it's all the same to me now.

The tracks in the snow have faded away, and I find myself further from where I began. It's so far to go to find contentment.

Carry me all the way down.
You're not as broken as you have led on.
The burden you are is the burden I know, and I'll take you with me as far as I go.

We're all hollow homes built on sand and broken bricks but with no
control over the fault that could swallow us whole. Now what becomes of us when we can't fend for ourselves?
I'm wrong, I'm always ashamed, I wish I could just let this go.

...And when I look down at all of my scars, who's to say who held the whip that left them all? I couldn't have known these marks would turn beautiful all on their own.

Carry me all the way down.
You're not as broken as you had led on...
--as you had led on.
--as I had led on.
I'm not as broken as I had led on
Track Name: Ghosts
There's a lie flowing through our veins
and we fight just to keep it from showing
all the truths laid upon our face,
--all the truths that are worthless and hollow.

We've turned away from the prying eyes,
although our own drift as equally careless.
And in the end, when it goes away,
our eyes remain in this motion, repeating....

Let me find a way to breathe again.
But it's so hard when the world caves in.
Underneath it all we remain unseen,
We are left behind, and we are forgotten--

--like we're ghosts.

It's a shame
that my burdens must ease all the pain of an outcrying conscience.
And in the end, when it goes away,
our eyes can see that it's starting all over....

Show me how to speak, tell me what to say.
Because we are never cleaned of our dirty ways.
And we cannot change what we are meant to be.
When love comes undone, we are all erased.

We are ghosts.
Track Name: The Night Sky In Grayscale (Feat. Casey Crescenzo)
It's so hard to see you now, between ill thought and good intentions.
And we've forgotten to grow old within a body made of ash and broken hopes.

We always end where we began. And in losing hope, we've lost affection. Relent, and pull back your disguise. And I will do my best to shield your innocence.

Afraid to call on you now, what is it that I must say?
We all have hidden away, this night will give a second chance to come out....

And when I call to you now, I now know what I must say:
"You can hide in my eyes, the night is ever-present there."
Track Name: At The End Of It All
Pale eyes are upon me.
Pale skin is all I know.
It wraps it's arms around me,
And embraces me in undertow.

Wide eyes are all I see,
Fixated all on me.
We barely live enough to breathe.
It pulls me underneath the sea.

--And I keep holding on.
