Track Name: Harmonic Tide
HARMONIC TIDE

I’M IN THE OCEAN FLOATING ON HARMONIC TIDES
WITH MY EARS BELOW THE SURFACE
I CAN HEAR A WORLD –THAT’S RADIANT
AND FULL OF MOVEMENT
ITS DARK AND WARM
I’M ENAMORED.

I DRIFT UNCHAINED ON THE
INNER SIDE OF THE WIND
I’M A SEABIRD, DYING.

SHARKS PRICK MY BODY (GOODBYE BLACK SKY)

AS I SINK IN THIS SEA
THE FISHES AND THE WAVES TAKE CARE OF ME
Track Name: Unfortunate One
UNFORTUNATE ONE

UNFORTUNATE ONE SPINNING OUT OF TIME
SCARED AND TEARING OUT MY MIND
WISHING FOR SOMETHING MORE THAN THIS
BUT IT’S EASIER…EASIER …TO LET GO OF THIS

I AM SHUNNED - FORLORN WITHOUT MUCH
JUST A MUTE SILHOUETTE - YEARNING TO BE TOUCHED.

ON THIS HOLLOW MORNING – I DON’T KNOW WHAT I SAW

I DIDN’T HEAR THEM COMING
MY SILENCE WOULD KEEP ME FINE
I ALWAYS THOUGHT I’D BE SAFE WITH THE ONES
WHO KNOW ME.

WE COMMUNICATE WITH OUR HANDS
WE COMMUNICATE WITH OUR EYES

UNFORTUNATE ONE - DON’T SHAKE YOUR HEAD AT ME
UNFORTUNATE ONE - IN BLACK AND WHITE YOU’LL READ ABOUT ME

I NEVER LEARNED HOW TO SCREAM
BUT LAST NIGHT I LEARNED HOW TO CRY
WITH A BRUTAL CONVERSATION WITH A
DEMENTED PHILISTINE.

IN THE PARK - UNDER MOON
IT WAS ALL OF THEM AGAINST ME AND YOU
ME AND YOU…
Track Name: On the Wire
ON THE WIRE.

STANDING THERE AGAINST THE WALL
I SEE MY REFLECTION – IT’S UNRECOGNIZABLE
IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE ME. THE COLORS AREN’T THE SAME
MY EXPRESSION IS SO HEAVY; DO I ALWAYS LOOK THAT WAY?

I STUMBLE FORWARD, BURIED HIGH
STUMBLE FORWARD ON THE DRIPPING WIRE.

A HAND PULLS LOOSE FROM MINE WHEN THE LIGHTNING FLASHES
THE RAIN FALLS HARD IN SEQUENCE AS THE THUNDER CRASHES
NOWHERE TO BREATHE. NOWHERE TO SCREAM. NOWHERE TO BE.

I STUMBLE FORWARD, BURIED HIGH
I STUMBLE FORWARD ON THE DRIPPING WIRE.

THIS NARROW HALLWAY IS LIKE AN UNMARKED GRAVE.
I TRY TO MOVE BUT THE PAIN IS GRATING ME ALIVE.
NOWHERE TO BREATHE. NOWHERE TO SCREAM.
MY EMOTIONS ARE LIKE ICE INSIDE THE HOLLOW OF MY CHEST.

I STUMBLE FORWARD, BURIED HIGH
STUMBLE FORWARD ON THE DRIPPING WIRE.

ON THE DRIPPING WIRE ON THE DRIPPING WIRE
Track Name: Violent Silence
VIOLENT SILENCE

TONIGHT I LIE AWAKE IN A KNOT
WITH THOUGHTS YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR.
AS WHISPERING COLLAGES FILL THE AIR
TO HEAL THIS MOMENT UNTIL IT ALL SEEMS CLEAR.

THE ROOM IS COLD. HOW LONG CAN WE HOLD IT IN?
THE SILENCE IS SO VIOLENT
THE SILENCE IS SO VIOLENT

I TRY TO CONCENTRATE ON THE CLOCK
BUT I’M TO CROWDED BY MY OWN WHEEL OF THOUGHTS
THAT SPEAK TO ME – PLAYING ME
SO LONG I’VE BEEN HOLDING IT IN.

THE SHEETS ARE COLD - OUR HEARTS ARE COLD
THE WORDS WE HAVE SAID HAVE ALL GROWN OLD.

THE SILENCE IS SO VIOLENT
THE SILENCE IS SO VIOLENT.
Track Name: Like Lost Lovers
LIKE LOST LOVERS

RELISHED IN SOLITUDE
EXISTING IN MY OWN SPACE
BREATHING IN ESSENCE
PLUCK THE LOW BRANCHES
AND PULL THE HIGH

THIS FIELD IS A SYMPHONY
AND I AM THE CHOIR
AS TREES FALL BLOWN AS THEY DANCE LIKE LOST LOVERS

THE LANDSCAPE IS SWAYING
BREATHING IN UNISON - SUCH
HARMONIOUS RHYTHMS
RUSTLING AGAINST THE WALLS OF MY
VOLCANIC THROAT

THIS FIELD IS A SYMPHONY
AND I AM THE CHOIR
THE TREES FALL BLOWN AS THEY DANCE LIKE LOST LOVERS
IN THE RAIN

THIS FIELD IS A SYMPHONY
AND I AM THE CHOIR
AS TREES FALL BLOWN AS THEY DANCE LIKE LOST LOVERS

THE VIEW CAN STEAL THE EYE OF TWO
COME DANCE WITH ME.
