Track Name: Catalina Blue
Life is a book
And the Author is unknown
I envision that he lives in
A cabin on a mountain all alone
And he constantly
paces back and forth
Mustering up new ways
To knock life off its course
And the days that he feels pain
We feel it too
The days he is enraged
We start a war without a clue
Of our motive
Bodies turning blue
No commotion
And he wonders why
Along side me and you

Or maybe that's just my excuse
For when I'm feeling down
My eccentric myth of reason
why your not around
My prescription
To sleep safe and sound
My religion of this
"cat and mouse"

Or maybe it's the guilt

That godforsaken guilt I get
When I lay down my head to rest
I can't clear my head
Track Name: Father Dog
Where have you been
Underneath this skin
Don't think I haven't heard
The words in your whispers
I am aware of your constant care

And even if I tried
To surpass your spell
The Judge can not be fooled
The Judge can always tell
As his speech starts to swell

Fade in
Fade out
My precious little bird
Can't you see what's happening?
Fade in
Fade out
My precious little bird
Can't you see what's happening?

Where have you been?
Through thickened skin
You come in
And start to carve your mark into
My hardened soul
Claiming what you've always
claimed your own
I'm your own

And when our worlds collide
It isn't you I fear
It's the passing of
Our conflicting atmospheres

Fade in
Fade out
My precious little bird
Can't you see what's happening?
Fade in
Fade out
My precious little bird
Can't you see what's happening?

Where have you been
Underneath this skin

Where have you been?
Through thickened skin
You come in
And start to carve your mark into
My hardened soul
Claiming what you've always
claimed your own

I'm your own
I alone
Am your own

Hail the reaper
Kill the creature
Track Name: The Greater Sun
You walked in
with a smile on your face
That made my heart explode
Fractions of cardiac dust
Filled my chest
And caused my lungs to corrode
I didn't know how long I had
Until you were forced to go
But for now
This castle's burning
And I won't dare put out its glow

Cause when you kill the flame
The smoke signals the enemy

Come down
You're way too high now
Come down
You're way too high now

Shake, shake
We were thrown
Way off our course
Wake, Awake
We're all sleeping through the universe

You and I
Were just alike
Like matching canvases
Of white
Never complete
Never dry
Always bare
And always bright

But when the colors start to mix
The painters hand can't get a grip

Come down
You're way too high now
Come down
You're way too high now

When she speaks
Her words are wise
She wears dignity
With pride
As she laughs
Without fear of the future
Ambition peaks
Wisdom is weak
specks of suspicion
Spewed all over canvases
Hanging up proudly
With meek mindless meaning
Drowning eyes bleeding
Awaiting to see the
Corridor calling
Viciously crawling
Fluid drenched floors
Drag me through my last thought

I can't reach the end
I can't reach the end to descend

As I sit and watch the world
Spin on it's tilt
I realize
I am not the only one
Standing crooked here with guilt

The planet's decrepit
our young minds
are deceptive
And we keep remarking
On it's faults

You're out of your mind
You're out of your mind little one

If it's true
That dust is what makes us
Then what of us
Could we give
To make each other breath
The way we did
With confidence

We could wait a century
Until we are forced to go
But for now
This castle's burning
And I won't dare put out its glow

We'll keep it burning
Track Name: Parasites In The Water
Don't be set off
Until you know
You might have been
fully submerged in
A sea of tonic

Don't jump across
Just yet
Until you've seen the other side
You might risk falling
Falling down

Everyone chases their shadow
Running away from the sun
But I've already been swallowed
Long before daylight begun

Parasites
Fill me with depravity
I can't escape
I cannot escape

Blood's rushing to my head
Flood's crushing me in bed

Winds are pushing me from shore
Lucid dreaming nevermore

Just take your time
Your precious, precious time here
Open your mind
Open your mind
You're in your prime dear

Don't be set off
Until you know
The waves have come to take us
Back to the place that makes us whole
Until the tides take us back home

Don't jump across
Just yet
Until the blackout swallows
Until the tides take us back home again

Everyone chases their shadow
Running away from the sun

Parasites
Fill me with depravity
I can't escape
their endless trance
on my tangled mentality

But I have already been swallowed
Long before daylight begun

Parasites
Fill me with depravity
I can't escape
I cannot escape
Track Name: The Wishing Tree
Standing in rows
Striking elegant poses
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what we came here for?
Humiliation...
Human eradication?

Discharge concentration
Begin circulation

I would rather be
alone for this
Cast me quietly
Into his hell-fire

Begin circulation

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what we came here for?
To begin circulation

What more do you want?
I've done all you've asked of me
I hear a voice calling
Out my name
I'll take a stand
Strangle my violent youth
Struggle to talk to you
Spirit speak to me

So many mind sets caged up
Yet this illness still interrupts us

Can we be freed
from this tedious
Questioning?

Now the royalty
Have all been cast down
But they belong there anyhow
The poor is absolved
along with the weak
I am the last one
Who will speak

Patiently waiting
Anticipating the verdict

As we are
Standing in rows
Striking innocent poses
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what we came here for?
Track Name: Wholesome
Your words could be lethal
They should be illegal
Like addicts with needles
I need my fixation

Your touch is so perfect
Your kiss always worth it
Now I've made them worthless
With my inclinations

when I finally wake up
From this mess I'm in
I hope you still speak those words
Without a stutter in your speech
Without a doubt of what you see in me

You've finally found
Some stable ground
Around my feet to walk on
Because now I know
Your silent tip toe-ing
Around me
No it won't cut it
Cause your not my puppet
You've helped me
Kill Japedo
Now we can rise above it
Or so I thought
Cause every time I get to thinking
My head nearly falls off
I just need your sweet, unending love
time and time again
That you have given me
A thousand time before


Her touch is so perfect
Her kiss always worth it
I'm going through withdrawal
Like an addict with his needle
I need my fixation

I don't need a bucket to finish this list
Cause what my heart desires
Would take place in a few years
We'd coexist with our God as our captain
I hope I haven't sink this ship
With what has happened

As strong as I'm being
with God in control
I still hate this feeling
I'm hollow
so hollow

It doesn't matter what's after
This stories modern chapter
I'll still miss your smile
I'll still miss your laughter

Somedays are so hard
to wake up in the morning
Staring at the wall
While I'm feeling numb

So to take the edge off
I'll down a bottle of Bible
Get drunk off the word and learn
Holy survival

Tell me can fix what I've cruelly destroyed
Track Name: Orphan Organism
Tell me exactly the times when I
Fought to keep myself
Balancing theories of constant composure now
With the urge of self reliance
I've finally found my purpose

This is not plagiarism
It's just my reminder to you
That I have not forgotten our vision
Or what we went through

Cooped up in past events
I never hear the end of it
I hope the end comes soon
I never want the end to come

These themes are bringing up
The closure
Your next move is giving up
While I'm still waiting for my
wake up call

I'm still waiting
(Waiting for my wake up call)
I'm still waiting
Please wake me up

I've seen the words
At the tip of your lips
Crawling back down your throat
And sinking into your ribs
It starts at conversation
And ends at God knows where
Not knowing
What the hell I saw in you
For hell is all I saw in you

Our futures

I must keep you in rhythm
For my own benefit

You've only brought destruction
Now I only see your perfection

While I'm still waiting for my
wake up call

I'm still waiting
(Waiting for my wake up call)
I'm still waiting
Please wake me up
I need my closure
Rose you haven't made up your mind at all
Track Name: Frozen
I know
How you spend your time
Craving the possessions of others
You teach them
Your new idea of faith
Then pull the rug
Right from under their bleeding feet
Oh what a shame you are

Are the gates if heaven closed
For the ones who never knew?
Not innocent like infants
Never knowing what to do because
We're all just frozen in time
Knowing that we must choose
We are all just
frozen

I know where you go to hide
When your a disappointment to your brothers
Preach to them all the things you hate
Every word that you speak
Is just a lie pushed through those teeth

Are the gates if heaven closed
For the ones who never knew?
Not innocent like infants
Never knowing what to do because
We're all just frozen in this
time capsule of memories
The directory of
"things unseen"
is the priority to eternity

Pull the thread and it unravels
Coil it up and it will fade away
Watch the smoke form
into heart shapes
Thought that you made
such a great choice
But you just made such great mistakes

Now all your truest love feels fake
You've clogged your hearts intake
You've slept with another one
Now just shut up and bite your tongue

Are the gates of heaven closed
For the ones who never knew?
They might look just like you
But they do not know of what they do
Track Name: Twin Flames
The essence grew
It crippled me
Wrapping my mind around
The thought of
Wrapping my arms around the air
So tight
I couldn't breath

Where is my hollow body?
Is it for me to find?
Or will the carcass drag
It's empty way
Back to me
Persistently

The soul half empty
Body half full
A half life predestined
Seeking for it's full control
The soul half empty
Body half full
A twisted half life
Seeking for it's full control

I hear your hollowness
Creating sounds with awful winds
Is this my calling?
Is this my calling?

The soul half empty
Body half full
A half life predestined
Seeking for it's full control
The soul half empty
Body half full
A twisted half life
Seeking for it's full control

Like the warmth of the sun
In the winter
Burning away lost hope

Like the warmth of the sun
New life has begun

Melting through the skin
To fill the insides

The soul half empty
Body half full
A twisted half life
Seeking for it's full control
Track Name: Luna
I'm sure if you were standing here right now
We would agree
That love did not uphold this house
Nor did you or me

I sense a change in
Temperature right now
It's quickly dropping
reminds me of the way you felt
Burning body heat

Shaky hands always
Crawling for you
Desperate voice calling
For you

I'm sure if you were standing here right now
You would not believe
That all of our time is up
And your not shedding another ounce of mercy

Once one
Now shaven into pieces
Can we pick them up
And make them fit where they don't belong
But how can I piece
Them together with these

Shaky hands always
Crawling for you
Desperate voice calling
For you
