Track Name: Real
something's coming down
and the ashes are snowing down soon
soon, soon

something's raining down
and the salt will dry around you
and the crows will gather around you
your eyes uncovered
and it's pure
and it's safe
and it's real

it's my only desire
i found it in my weakness
it will come to you
soon, soon

i walked from the cathedral
and i continued walking
and the world burst open
and my forehead was bleeding
and i could hear you singing
about living like an ocean

and everyone was watching
i can see it now
i can feel it now
and it's real
and it's real
Track Name: Floating In Space
I can not sleep in this cold darkness
spirit, don't let me down
I have nothing left

give me something tonight
I'll waste it all
floating in space
is all I've got inside

going to make everything fall
you are the center of all I think about

give me something tonight
I'll waste it all
'cause floating in space
is all that I've got
'cause floating in space
is all that I've got
'cause floating in space
is all I've got
Track Name: Let It Surround
...and i fade out so much bigger
knock out the trigger

come out i swear it'll be okay

i've had enough suffering i think
come on now enter in from darkness
come and bitterly give up
the paper geese fall down

i'm singing lay it down
let it surround let it surround
it is autumn now

here i am calling from the underground
could you let all the curtains fall down?
could you turn around to see my face?

you know you stand out in the crowds
you're taking time from your hourglass
we have everything each other needs

when our eyes will meet i know that you'll be everything i'll ever recognize

you're walking down the trails of fog
every single star is crying for us
the paper geese all fall down

wont you bitterly give up someday?
hey
wont you bitterly give up someday?

let it surround you
let the oceans surround you
i know you will float above the waves


i'm singing lay it down
let it surround let it surround
it is autumn now
Track Name: Give Us All
give in what you take
believe in what you make

give us all a symphony of sorrow
and you'll pay the toll
sit me down alone tonight
and i'll tell you things i never tell anyone else

give me not a sound
so i will hear no voices
calling out for warmth
calling out for changes
i'm giving all i've got
but there's nothing left to hold on to
let me take a breath
let me take a rest i will
spiral out away
spiral out away from you
talking out of phase
taking my place towards you
i am searching in the dark
i am searching in the dark

give in what you take
believe in what you make

give us all a dream where you're not dying
and you'll save my lost soul
lay me down alone tonight
and i'll tell you things i never tell anyone else

give me not a sound
so i will hear no voices
calling out for warmth
calling out for changes
i'm giving all i've got
but there's nothing left to hold on to
let me take a breath
let me take a rest i will
spiral out away
spiral out away from you
talking out of phase
taking my place towards you
i am searching in the dark
i am searching in the dark
Track Name: Any time I'm Out Of Breath
any time i'm out of breath

you give me the oxygen that i need
do you realize what you do?

you know, you realize that you can live life in slow motion
you know, slowly
if you had an hour to find yourself...

any time i'm out of breath

someone tells me where to find some air
come on now
tell me where to find you
to sound

fall right through the blackened clouds
pick yourself up and wear your rightful crown
and softly hit that ground
surrender
Track Name: Angels Outside
get up, get on
the slick slope towards
the place where nothing has weight
inside and upside down

breathe in the air
you need to join in the collective
icy cold undertow splash

turn aside, turn aside, turn aside
can you feel it with me, with me?

a fire grins outside your breath
can you feel it with me now?

get up, get on

you can breathe new air, yes

someone outside, someone outside
turn all the noise down
angels outside, angels outside

healing outside, healing inside
healing inside, healing inside

it's always there

healing outside, healing inside
healing inside, healing inside
Track Name: Change
open yourself to the ocean waves
spread your back upon the ground
when the sun is on the other side

you see the pinholes of light
stretched beyond a million miles away
and it hits your iris

you can see through time and space
your voice is the ocean
and your heart is right here
in the center of your chest

your forehead is the foundation
of thoughts and ideas that can bring change
and you can hear the sounds that can take in the waves

in the center of yourself
in the center of yourself

here you are now
you can sense a change
coming right through the bend
coming right through the bend

you're rising
and i can sense the change
that you are a part of

in your spirit
coming like the wings of a dove
can you feel, can you feel?

a change
i know you can

don't give up
you are here
believe in yourself
believe

don't leave
don't let go
in the center of your forehead
Track Name: In These Eyes
in these eyes i can see something
beautiful inside of you
inside of you

the purest heart scarred by those who have none

i want to sit beside you
and listen to your words
i don't think you know how much they hit me

in these eyes i can see something
in these eyes i can see something
inside of you

i know it takes a long time
to see what i can see
to see what i can see
inside of you

fall beside me
and feel around me
and breathe within me
and talk lightly
touch me gently
and crawl, no running
just close your eyes please
you need no sight now
just hear the music

fall beside me
and feel around me
and breathe within me
and talk lightly
touch me gently
and crawl, no running
just close your eyes please
you need no sight now
just hear the music
Track Name: We Hallucinate Ourselves
keep looking up
dont dare you stray
keep looking up, keep looking up
i can hear your soul whispering, whispering

why don't we all
stop pretending
like you're at a place like heaven

you have so many wounds to heal
let me set you back
before you became involved
with all the things that held you back

so walk with me, now take a step back
and hear me

we hallucinate ourselves to take away the pain
and we, we sedate our lives to make ourselves feel faint
light a candle, it's getting dark in here
when you're giving all that they can take

you know i'm on your side, i'm on your side
you know i'm on your side, i'm on your side
when you're giving all that they can take
Track Name: Solemn Eyes
too many people have solemn eyes
they need to let in the beauty around
i need to do the same

colors combine into the lightness i feel now
letting go of the wounds that death's voice inflicts on my soul
there is a secret that needs to be passed around
listen closely to that silence that resonates

there are words to be heard now
from the rusted iron gates to the crumbling columns
that couldn't hold my mantle together

let in the light and do not succumb to the dark
remember you do not control your existance
the seasons don't change by your plans

you have to adapt with the world's every fleeting whim
but you've got to remain what you are at all times
you cannot let that go
it is the same as committing suicide

and i'm thinking of this silence all of the time
and the silence can speak beyond words

and those words tell me to hold on to the good things
the things that make me want to live
and to reject the things that give me suffering

because suffering is neglecting the beautiful things that are my oxygen
things that many people lack, gifts that are unseen

i cast a glance at a stranger walking past
and for one moment i feel as if i have lived their entire life
Track Name: Even Greater Things
even greater things will happen tonight
i can taste it in the wind
even greater things can happen you know

we are all a part of the skin
open up your wings to the brightest of brightest lights

not even a brightness tomorrow can bring
not even a brightness tomorrow can bring
for your dreams are yours to hold tonight

not a million wishes could hold what you hold in your heart
tonight
not a million of mistreated children's tears could well up the amount you hold back tonight

(i can see your face covered by your hands now)

because tonight is a night like every other night
even greater things will happen tonight
Track Name: Be Like Water
be like water
inside

i'm coming around now
look in your soul

i see the grass grow high
there's something i've got to see
when i look up

hanging from a string
i know it's hard
i know it's hard

keep listening to my voice
and open your eyes
you can see
anything that you want to

it's right here
before you

the circle of the moon
take me, i'll let it all go
sound

you see the voices
out in day

i know it's alright
in the moment
it's alright
in a dream

it's alright
i cannot walk
gather around

it's alright

come in here with me
come in here with me
don't be afraid to sing

it's all right here
look through the door
Track Name: Heaven, Heaven
that night
we sat beside
each other
but we didn't hold each other

right down here
too late, too late
i love
heaven, heaven
whispering, whispering
how alone are we tonight

oh my dream
full of lampposts and streets
i could never see the end
oh no, no
sway down
like the willow trees
outside the breeze

heaven, heaven
fill me with your blood
all night
heaven, heaven
fill me with your blood

tonight
i had a dream
it was full of pristine statues
of myself
but they were broken to pieces

sway low
like the willow tree
that blows in the breeze
away from the night
away from the night

heaven, heaven
fill me with your blood
heaven, heaven
fill me with your blood
Track Name: Remember
remember the words i have said
no matter what you do
with the rest of your life

my door is always wide
only to you
never forget that

i have always remained true

only what's best for you
know that when you return
to the streams of light
i reside there

cleanse yourself from the pain
rinse yourself from the suffering
you can see beneath the coal residue
that you are worth more than anything i have ever encountered
in all of my days

with this all in mind, with this all in mind
be at rest
be at peace
and know all of these things
these things that are true

no, don't take me away
i am not lost here
no, don't take me away
please, please, please
don't take me away
from this place
don't take me away
Track Name: Chin Up
please don't fight your curiosity
everything you have ever wanted
can be found without effort

the door is wide, the door is wide
when are you coming?
your natural light, it caught my eye
please come near
would you swim in the deep end
on a moonlit night?

giving out myself
to the darkest trail
i have absolutely nothing left to lose

come inside, come inside
i have a chair
could you make it so that this room doesn't feel so empty here?
chin up, chin up it's going to be okay

please no worries
you don't have to figure it out right now
right now
take off your covers
look outside, look outside

giving out myself
to the darkest trail
i have absolutely nothing left to lose
Track Name: On The Way Down
i'm seeing silver streamers falling from the sky
and i wish i could lay my head up straight
looking into your eyes

slowly i'm spinning
and sometimes i'm feeling my heart
too much and all at once
like a sheet carrying through the night

hear me now, hear me now
i am feeling so real
i want to take my hands
and comb them through your hair

living in the moment here
it is real and true
i want to look into your eyes

i didn't mean when i looked away
it's as bright as the sun
it's as bright as the sun

do you realize
you mean the world to me
do you realize
you mean the world to me

on the free fall
let me catch you
let me catch you

on the free fall
let me catch you
on the way down
