Track Name: Cynthia
Skip away
To the lake
To see what you can find

Skip away
From their gaze
And find a place to hide
Track Name: Form A Distance
Of all the silence
In all the lies
Of all the distance
In all your ties
And in an echo
And in a cry
Your innocence waving goodbye

As it happens
As it passes you by

When it all drops out
And days disappear
When reflecting cost so much
For you to get here
But why fall hard?
And keep burying
Hold on by the roots
Claw your way back in

As it happens
As it passes you by
Built of nothings
And full of whys

Hide away
Don't
Hide away now
Track Name: Sleepwalk
A dying star
Spins around then flies apart
In a dying heart
Goes back 'round to the start
I won't make a wish
Just one more final bow
Tracing shapes of bliss
Hung the right way around

And I..

I won't sleep today
The skies can burn me away
And everything inside
And I ...
Won't wait for the sunrise
It can't hide or disguise
Everything outside

I will dance and drown
As the ballroom floods around
I won't make a sound
As the undertow surrounds
A death to be proud
Or as close as I can get
The stern creaks then breaks
All the cracks upon me

And I..

Won't wait for the sunrise
It can't hide or disguise
Everything outside
And I..
I won't sleep today
The skies can burn me away
And everything inside

Everything inside
Track Name: Surface Noise
Our love capsize
The trades winds turn
Now we wait
For the things under the bed

Oh
But
The
Sounds
Track Name: Paper Planes
Only tired sighs, you can hear, down here
Only tired sighs, in here, no tears

But still your beauty never fades

Only veiled whispers, you can hear, in here
Only veiled whispers, in here, no fear

But still your beauty never fades
Even when we are caught in tides that never change

Still we watch them fall like paper planes
Track Name: The Noise Before I Sleep
Instrumental
Track Name: Drop
No more tales of drowning
No more tales of slipping away
Effervescent i am
To the top i wade

We collide
From Sound Alone
We collide
Then you are gone

All that is solid
Melts in to the air
I resurface
Like you weren't even there

We collide
From Sound Alone
We collide
Then you are gone
Track Name: Krome Ave.
Do you remember the levy?
We drank stolen wine, swam topless
As the alligators looked on
Old cutler road, we broke into the ballroom
Played Ouija board and sang until we fell down

You built a road from your heart to mine
And now we're apart i still think of you and that time

Loop road and the vines, we tripped
Until all the trees came alive
We sank all the way to the bottom
As the moon bathed us in light

I build my heart to yours
You are forever mine
As we ride on from a place
That is lost in time

Remember the blood on Krome ave?
As the crowds shuffled away
You were there with me on Krome ave
As a soul gave way

It's always been you and me
Through the dark and the rain
And the rain never stops but never beats us
On all we left in the everglades
We ride on to a place
We can call our own
And sister you are mine
And we belong
Track Name: Inkblots
Keep your head up, at least you get to leave
Keep your chin up my sweet, for now you are set free
As you glide the universe, know you ain't missing much down here
As you sail along, it's just us waiting all the years

To see you

You'll never know the sorrow of us that have to stay
No matter the distance or time, I will wait

To see you
Track Name: Mercury Reprise
When i look outside
I'll leave by myself
And stretch to fly
The Wind pulls me to you

You
Holding on
You
To Someone
Track Name: Orchid
Don't cry the shoals from your side
Avert your eyes as the swarms collide

Today the sun reignites and showers you goodnight
Half way along the path, drifting forward sinking back

The boughs broke now the clouds have flown
You fell from a sky that was your own

Today the sun reignites to shower you goodnight
Half way along the path, drifting forward sinking back

The sun ends here
