Track Name: Head Under Water
Black as the night, Bright as the sun
You’re the wind at my heels; you’re the hot smoking gun.
You’re holding on to shadows of doubt
Can you grasp onto the reason before your feet hit the ground

You’re holding my head under water
You’re taking my air I need to breath

You strike a flame, a light goes out
I’m the one you slowly tease, I’m the man without a sound
You’re holding on to wood for the fire
To fill the hole in your chest where your heart used to lie

If I could find a little piece of sanity and finally rest my head
You could be the gentle breeze that lifts me and carries me downwind
But rather you’re the all-consuming dark when I can hardly see…
Track Name: Waste My Time
Standing alone waiting
Drenched to the bone it’s still raining down

Why can’t you feel something?
Is there a flame burning still?
Where was the place it went out?

Only when you finally fall
Will you see the pain you’ve caused to me. To me.

I won’t waste my
I won’t waste my time on you

Sit here alone thinking
We used to be something
Is there a place for our empty parts?

Only when you finally fall
Will you see the pain you’ve caused to me. To me.

Only when the seasons change
Will you see the mess you’ve made for me
Track Name: Home
With you I’m alright
With you, I can fight
All that this world will throw
All this angst and hate
And I want to take on my life

But I’m naked and I’m drowning in the ocean
We you be the hook that baits and catches me?

Home is with you
So tell me I’m alright

With you I’m alright
With you, I can find
All that this world can sow
Intertwined with fate
Is the choice to make up my mind...

If you’re naked and you’re drowning in the ocean
Let me be the hook that baits sets you free
Track Name: Seasons
Close your eyes in the night
Rest your mind in the growing shadows

The day’s heavy it’s weighing you down and my
Solemn notes ain’t helping you darling

I can’t see the spring in your step
Can you wait, for another season I’ll take you away

I see us walking in the rain
I see you dancing through fire
I see you walking me all through winter into autumn
resting in the endless summer lights

Stepping out in the light
Morning cold air kisses you gently

A welcome change to the dead of night and I
See the life fill your bones like it used to

I can see the spring in your step
But can you wait, for another season and take me away

And so I close my eyes in the night
Rest with you in the welcoming shadows

The day’s heavy it’s weighing me down
but I know the seasons are changing
Track Name: Blame It On Me
Lately I can’t seem to find the hours
It feels like petty things are taking up my days
Talk is cheap when you can’t find the time
To find the right excuse so I don’t have to pay
The piper’s toll…

But you blame it on me

Lately I can’t seem to find the lines
I’m choking up the words to you I meant to say
Apologies are easy when they’re lies
It’s so much easier to bend the truth and let you win this time

Just blame it on me

Reaching through my head to find the words
I wish to say all the time, all the time
Then I could finally rectify the way things seem to be
All the time, all the time
Track Name: State of Mind
Talkin bout a state of mind
Talkin bout the way I feel
Talkin bout a state of mind
Talkin bout the way my feelings
Come back to haunt me
And take me to the days
Where the darkness caught me
And turned my path away

Say the words, you could make it right
Take the weight of world from off my shoulders
And like a beam of breaking light
You take me higher than the sun

Talkin bout a love of mine
Talkin bout the way I feel
Talkin bout a place and time
Talkin bout the way my feelings
Come back to warn me
And keep me from the days
Where the darkness caught me
And turned my path away

You make me feel alive again
You make me feel alive again
