Gracious actions that hide behind Diseased intentions Unmade beds in which we lie Relearning the art of sleep Good night Sleep well Hello smoking gun Everybody knows This fire has just begun One bare knuckled breaking of the mold One hot minute to purify the soul Fading in, fading out The lie is speaking volumes Shelved away in the dust Forever The lost is found Hello smoking gun Everybody knows This fire has just begun

Searching for lost time A 24 hour haze Burnt offerings were kept at bay They were swept away Revealing the below What was already above There's nothing discreet When the shadows grow teeth When these lines were made They were made to be crossed We were made to be lost Everything points to infinity again Again and again The eyes upon you have read your story The towering overtones sent them running once before There in the dead air Listen you will hear White noise just below the skin This is where it all begins There's nothing discreet When the shadows grow teeth When these lines were made They were made to be crossed We were made to be lost Everything points to infinity again Again and again Before the panic sets in You will take it all in And it all comes to pass With the wink of an eye

Everything is clear As it's ever been As it ever will be Open mouths before you Incite the feeding frenzy You found a cause A cause for alarm Something to believe in Falling earthward Starving hysterical Something to fade into There is a devious underground Spitting back at me At supersonic speed Coming on like a great black wind You found a cause A cause for alarm Something to believe in Falling earthward Starving hysterical Something to fade into
5.
Back to the terrors of the empty page Where there is plenty of time for the sky to fall The sound of faint voices So close to the surface Gone again Long gone Reaching out for me through a pane of glass Distorted faces staring back Familiar eyes open wide In search of that moment Gone again Long gone Smoke signals outside the void A burning farewell to us all

Liars 05:36
A means to a bitter end No need to explain By hell or high water Razed to the ground Hanging in mid air By the albatross around your neck It suits you well Eyes drift above the flood The liars wink and pull the strings The writings on the wall The myth of halycon days Make an exit like star-crossed lovers Born to see it through Hanging in mid air By the albatross around your neck It suits you well Eyes drift above the flood The liars wink and pull the strings Another vintage silence Recalled Revealed

Mercurial 04:14
Reject this recurring picture Standing down to the inevitable So becoming to walk away Bring this conversation so a dull roar One dream away from moving on Mindset parallels the brand new day The looking glass has something else to say Bedtime for the bedlam Bring this conversation to a quiet end One breath away from letting go Mercurial

Somewhere along the line The mirror lied to you It's come to this now It's come to this Never claim to know the impersonator Let the record show I never will At some point in time The truth has cursed you It's come to this now It's come to this Never claim to know the impersonator Let the record show I never will
10.
The line between everything now Bare bones to the cold fire The very soul of the voyage Pure meaningless motion One day I won't come back at all To all these strange ghosts of the world The angels of desire I'm not seeing visions anymore For the love of hysteria And other crimes against life Desensitized in time The beat it goes on and on One day I won't come back at all To all these strange ghosts of the world The angels of desire I'm not seeing visions anymore Beyond the point of no return And I am ready this time

Millions 04:45
Something inside "Millions!" she cried Tearing away what was once known The slightest insinuation Dancing with imagination Time exploding in the sky Our names in faded lights For no one to see tonight Slightly damaged criteria The understatement of another lifetime When fear is the messenger We are not afraid Time exploding in the sky Our names in faded lights For no one to see tonight
12.
Stare in the face of the sun Wander with my eyes until the daylight is gone Meditate by way of the fever The end still has a beginning Primed for a revelation Time for a second chance White light blinded White heat burning White lie hurting Forever the alarmist Carry the burden past the threshold Call it home and turn and walk away The first step of a brand new journey This could be the one to remember Primed for a revelation Time for a second chance White light blinded White heat burning White lie hurting Forever the alarmist
13.
Could we just cut to the chase Could we just break it down in 10 words or less You see there isn't much time But did I need to remind you? The sympathetic tones Open the darkroom doors without warning The answers are their own Leave me overexposed Walking in a rain that no one can feel Some day the sun will shine 365 days have managed to slip away from me again Seemingly endless phase I hope the world is sleeping well tonight Walking in a rain that no one can feel Some day the sun will shine Searching for a warm place to hide We've had a good run Until now Walking in a rain that no one can feel Some day the sun will shine again

Phantom Moon 06:20
You forget what you want to remember You remember what you want to forget No other dream No waking world No other tale to tell By the dark of the phantom moon I will find you By the light of what we give too soon I will blind you You believe what you want to hear You hear what you want to believe The raging silence overwhelming Dread speaks after the deadline Calm reaching inside Noise overflows below an optional glow Fall into your dead end peers Become your cautionary tale For one more page I will find you
