Track Name: Daymares / The Sleep of Trust
Silent all the years
Soulful reclamation
Unconscious culture
Accept this moment
It may be enough

So many words left unsaid
My skin is weakening from the repression
So many words unsaid

Silent all the years
Soulful reclamation
Unconscious culture
Accept this moment
It may be enough
It may be enough

So many words left unsaid
My skin is weakening my body is bled
Close your eyes lie so still

Those stories of daymares so real in my mind
I walked the same steps recounted over and over again

I walked the same steps recounted over and over again

There is no place like you a double edged independence
Of freedom but not acceptance
Your sunset brings tears to my eyes
I ache for your memories those rapturous
How did I get here what have I become
Would I survive your burning sun your holy mess

Those stories of daymares, so real in my mind

Closed eyes
Close your eyes lie so still
Closed eyes
Close your eyes lie so still
Closed eyes
Close your eyes lie so still
Closed eyes
The sleep of trust
Track Name: Obelisk
For the longing
Desolation
For the disquiet
Unwanted
Shadows laying low

You look to me laying silent
You look to me all righteous

For the longing
Isolation
Shadows laying low

Take what you will
Once full of light
Once full of love
Take what you will

Bodies hold fast to this truth

Take what you want to take
Once full of dreams
Once a pure heart
Take what you want to take

A faint pale glow remains
Half asleep and half awake
Never to breathe here again
Is this where it finally ends

Bodies hold fast to this truth beneath
Resistance only brings pain and
My soul burns as you fuel your ego

Look to me
Will I spend these last days regretting the years I burnt away
Look to me
Will I spend my nights fuelled with longing for those I didn’t reach out for
Look to me

For this longing
Empathist
Track Name: Recast the Shadows
As we ascend into twilight
Calling to the dawn
In the distance
So far out
Like a dead sun burning our eyes

As we descend into twilight
Calling to the night
In the distance
So far out
Like a dead star burning our eyes

Dead sun burning our eyes
We descend into the night

Smell the blood
Scent of fear
Recasting the shadows

Do we bare our teeth
Or bare our hearts
We suffer in order to still feel

Do we bare our teeth
Or bare our hearts
We suffer in order to still feel

Will this darkness fade away
Or remain an echo
Forever calling our names
