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: Oh, Mother
Oh, mother you took everything
All I have left, nothing
My heart can never win
My heart can never sing

But I love you
Oh, the pain of loving you

Oh, mother you never showed me love
All the gifts from above
You stole a part of me that was whole
You ripped the joy from my soul

But I still love you
I live with the pain of loving you
My love is true
When yours is cruel

You're the reason that I have nothing
You're the reason that I fell apart
You're the reason I dream in the dark
You're the reason I have not

Oh, mother I never knew
All your past came true
All I am is because of you
All my shame shines through

All your children think I am the one
But they don't know what you have done
No light from your heart
Your gift from the start
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: Sonar
Here the sound dissolves the breeze
Nothing to see, then skyward
The sun disappears
Locusts of steel they find us
No matter how far we run
Sullen tides draw near

Falling out
Into the White
We die love

Blacking out
Buried in the sand
We drown love

Swam in pools of crimson
A proxy coalesced
Blissful tides reach the shore

Falling out
Hot rain bleaches all
We drown love

Blacking out
A psalm dissolvent
We die love

There's a fire in the sky
