Track Name: Miles Over The Land
We waited in the garden
For the lights to come
Flying in the old boat
Miles over the land
And we were alone in the rain
With a cross and a strip and a gun and a chain
And the sky started falling apart
And the mountains melted like ice
And the rain became red overhead

Sometimes we can't tell the difference
Between light and dark
Between sky and sea
Between order, chaos
Between you and me
Cause truth be told
Cause truth be told
They’re not so different to me
With the end walking so near, it's such a pleasure to go for a walk

These days the city feels like
Rusty memories
The woods guard what is left as
The city claims the rest
And every piece of the puzzle
Is drifting so quickly it's vanishing out of my sight
If I buried my eyes
They wouldn't be hurt by the light

And we're so far from home
So lost in this hole
Screaming in the dark
Looking for our soul
Track Name: Winter Rage
I took my chances
No chance returned
As I flew over
And was reborn

I try to say I hate you
But that's because I love you
I say, say, say and say, say, say
And I don't mean anything

The winter strikes again
No roof above my head

I took my chances
No chance returned
As I flew over
And was reborn

The winter strikes again
No roof above my head

But your eyes make me wonder
Your eyes make me stronger
Your eyes make me wonder
Your eyes make me stronger
Track Name: Let It Go
I wish I'd
Been there to see
Her dance around me
She always
Wore the
Same old shoes
Perhaps not to lose
My eyes when
She turned
Into the night
Eyes running wild
Her blood boiling

Sometimes
You watch the days go by
She stands and smiles
Her dark lips
Wrapped around mine
She stares
Up on the stairs
There’s something
Watching her every move
It seems a love
From an afterlife

Sometimes
I know I'm not aware
Perhaps too young to care
About all this
Leaving reckless at times
Too many nights
To keep count
But my eyes
They tend to wrap the Sun
And the Moon into one
Shapeless mass

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go...
Track Name: Tongue Stealing Cats
You hid your shield
Under skin protection
You closed your eyes
Still no connection
You always said
"Go with the flow"
But always meant
You had to go away

You still remind me
Of that other day
When all the smells and sensations
Struggled to catch my way
But somehow, looking back
It isn't what it used to be
And now I wonder
Why do you still look at me?

And there was that day
When you said nothing
And I looked closer
And that another one
When you said everything
But I wouldn't listen

And up here at the shore
Everything looks softer

And there was that day
When you said nothing
And I looked closer
And that another one
When you said everything
But I wouldn't listen

And up here at the shore
Honey, whose cat got your tongue?
And there was that day
When you said nothing
And I looked closer
And that another one
When you said everything
But I wouldn't listen
And up here at the shore
Whose cat got your tongue?
