Track Name: A Resurrection
Soft crunch of snow;
A burning wreck on the nights edge;
On the treeline;
With a fox on fire.

A lifetime of waiting for a wrong turn;
For a car crash;
For the ice to crack;
For the clock to stop.
Track Name: Golden Hawk Too Far Away
I could've opened a doorway,
A pack of pills and a truth is all it would take.
You are a golden hawk too far away,
And I could mix my drinks.

If stranger words are inside of me,
You pull them out like a cancer.
My crooked spine; I'll never know why you'd bother.
Is this a mountain? Is this a mountain?

And if time is a constant, who is pulling my string?
And if time is a constant, who is pulling my string?

And what if it's only a half-life?
And what if it's only a half-life?
Track Name: Moon
I found a home in the dark
And a way down, lower than a beast
Like it's supposed to be

Almost at the point of no return
Track Name: Survivor Guilt
Climbing out of the car one last time,
I wonder who will tell your parents that you've died.
I think about your morning routine,
If you knew then that it'd be you or me.
I tried to give you the kiss of life,
But lungs cannot inflate with a broken pipe.
I waved my hands till someone stopped.
Then there were two of us who didn't know what to do.

And after the small but lovely funeral,
I sat with your friends and drank some of your parents wine.
Weeks later as I climbed into bed, that's when the tears came.
Track Name: Widow
I'm not asking for forgiveness, that ship sailed long ago

Widow haunts into the afterlife.
And I'm not sure if it's reactionary.

The claw marks up my back; they're a warning sign.
They're scars for a reason.

When will I see you again?
How many sleepless days and nights?
Give me a figure
Give me something to hold on to.

You render tears, they're useless but well meant.
Through the sparks that hurt my eyes, there's a brightness, there's a star: a variable.

And what if I can't let go?
And what if I can't let go?
Track Name: I Could Have Been A Fire
I called your name across a lake to see if you'd reply;
The wind carried my voice back across the moonlit dark.
You said, "I could have been a fire hungry for your flame;
And when the sky's an autumn colour, we would burn across the landscape and through the night."

Nothing has a form;
And I can't pretend to pray anymore.
I can't keep lying to you;
But I cannot tell the truth;
You need somebody to rely on;
And I'll somebody too.

You said I could have been a fire if I only shared my flame;
If I'd only shared my flame.
Track Name: Every Second, Forever
There's a sky above that I don't belong under,
But you say you won't live without me.
Well that kind of blackmail must make me something;
And maybe I can be a man for you.

You said that you don't believe in shallow love,
It's impossible.
Track Name: Sending A Message
I gave the right answers to all off your questions;
But no one is allowed to succeed.
You play on the fact that I can't remember conversations
Of no consequence at all.

And I came here to tell you that I pissed in your bushes,
And it was me who dragged keys down your car door.
Now you know how it feels to have your time wasted;
Just like you wasted mine.
Track Name: Killing Time
I'm begging you to sleep so that I can watch you dream,
Of times when I was a better Father for you.

And it's only when you're here does my smile become sincere.
Everything else is just killing time.

Laughing at the sun, at the way he dries the paint up fast before you can add my arms and legs.

I'm just a body and a head, but I don't need anything else.
As long as you stay here with me.
Track Name: Blood Collects
I ask you for a name, and stare into your book;
No one knows your face, except you.

Blood collects around the palm of the hand.
Nails snap under the weight of my body.

How much will you take?
How much will you take?
Track Name: Water
A stranger gave me your picture;
Told me to look for you.
I carved a path through England;
Over moors and through towns.
Maybe you'll remember me, maybe you won't;
I can see two futures.

I made myself a fire in the woods;
And stared into the flames.
I had an epiphany;
I saw you dancing naked and free.
I woke up cold, surrounded by wildlife all staring at me.

I dived into the ocean;
And saw the tops of houses and a church.
I swam with the fishes to your old street;
Until I found old number three.
Through the door and up the stairs;
Across the hall and to your room.
Behind the door I found your bed;
With your bones lay fast asleep.

I lay next to you and closed my eyes.
Track Name: Last Candle
I've lost years for no good reason;
Just wasting time waiting to die.
Flying towards another life

Don't stop the kisses,
They're not working yet, but they might.
But they might.
They're not working yet, but they might.
But they might.

I'm not burned out yet
