Track Name: Heliotrope
All our faces tell a story that our lovers come to know
Etched in lines invisible til the time comes to show
Traces of our trials past and smiles faded long ago
Worries carving deeper paths than our roots care to grow

We’re not growing a day younger
This much oh I know is true
Let’s not waste a moment more
Just do what you love to do

We must write our own stories just as we want them told
Only through our own words can we turn this lead to gold
No one said life was easy, no one said we’d be happy
Just hold tight to your own pen never forget your own story

We’re not growing a day younger
This much oh I know is true
Let’s not waste a moment more
Just do what you love to do

Death will come for us all and wrap us in her cold embrace
The only store you’ll have then is the one marked upon your face
Let it tell of all your passions leaving nothing unsaid
Let her kiss all the secrets that you hold inside your head

We’re not growing a day younger
This much oh I know is true
Let’s not waste a moment more
Just do what you love to do
Track Name: Remember This
Drink the cold coffee that you bought for me
Down in the chilly rainy valley
Praying it will give energy
To this weary shell of me
Pretending that it was meant to be
That our knuckles fit perfectly
When we curled our hands into fists

Remember this.

You don't listen to me you say
So I stare at you anyway
It's hard to hear every word you say
When you look at me that way
Like I'm a map you've never read
Like I'm a voice inside of your head
Like I'm a story you know too well
Like I'm a secret you'll never tell

Remember this.

Oh I listen to all you say
But it's hard to do anyway
It's hard to hear every word you say
When you look at me that way
Like I'm a map you've never read
Like I'm a voice inside of your head
Like I'm a story you know too well

Remember this.
Track Name: Orpheus
Orpheus my teller of tales
I knew better than to fall for you
With your gilded strings
And your honeyed lies
I knew you'd never stay by my side

Anytime you sing a song for someone else it kills me
Bit by bit and piece by piece
I fade slowly away

I never cared much for the chase
So it's only fair to take me out of your race
I'm not the one who'd risk death for you
So you needn't worry about saving me
Save me
Save me from you

Anytime you sing a song for someone else it kills me
Bit by bit and piece by piece
I fade slowly away

You only love the girls who kiss your feet
I only worship from afar
So don't look for me

Anytime you sing a song for someone else it kills me
Bit by bit and piece by piece
I fade slowly away
Track Name: Dandelions
Hope that lay so dormant waiting patiently
Stretched her arms and rubbed her eyes
She uncoiled lazily
Placed a crown of gentle light
Upon her sleepy head
Then set off seductively
Into the dawn rose red

Dandelions blowing dreams over my head
Seeds of change are sowing
Wishes left for dead
Undead

Flashes of light paint the sky
An incandescent haze
Hope skipping brightly on her toes
Tripping through the maze
Weaving through the shadow self
Waiting to devour
Unerringly she finds her way
Growing stronger by the hour

Dandelions blowing dreams over my head
Seeds of change are sowing
Wishes left for dead
Undead
Track Name: Play My Heart
Leave your worries behind my love
You won't need them here
Let your mind rest my love
Let go of all you hold dear
Sink into the sound of my voice
Calling you to me
Siren song lulling you
Into the deep blue sea

Play my heart like a record
Caress every curve every groove
I'll spin in your embrace endlessly
Playing this song for you

Stay with me tonight my love
Til morning frames your face
Follow me into dreams my love
We'll vanish without a trace
Feel your breath rise and fall
As you sleep next to me
Two hearts beat as one
Perfect symmetry

Play my heart like a record
Caress every curve every groove
I'll spin in your embrace endlessly
Playing this song for you
Track Name: Synapses
Your eyes they flash, my heart it beats
Still you're here sipping whiskey with me
No water will grace your lips
Nor will mine
With these words my only weapon
I write to make myself whole again
As these words spill out of my pen
You turn to talk to our friends

Synpases slow and you become sweet
Who needs these chemicals I put in me

Moments of lucidity
flash back to me when you leave
To go out and smoke a cigarette
You're just a casual hypocrite
But I believe you when you kiss me
Oh I take it so literally

Synapses slow and you become sweet
Who needs these chemicals I put in me

The way you move your tongue over mine
Has me so preoccupied
With your greying hair, your green eyes
How many years are left inside
How many years are left to deny
How many years are left inside

Synapses slow and you become sweet
Who needs these chemicals I put in me
Synapses slow and your breath is sweet
I take you so seriously
Track Name: Drowning
I can't trust all that I see
The look in your eyes as we're cheek to cheek
The way you say my name to me
But she kissed you oh so sweetly

Loving you is like drowning in a river
Clear on the surface
Dark all together

Can't wait to see the story unfold
Can't believe fairytales that I'm told
There's no prince who will come for me
Alone in this tower I shall be

Loving you is like drowning in a river
Clear on the surface
Dark all together

People are such disappointments
Oh I thought you were different
Please don't prove me wrong
I won't wait for very long

Loving you is like drowning in a river
Clear on the surface
Dark all together
Track Name: Silhouettes
This old love burns as it were born yesterday
This old heartache it yearns for everything
That you promised to me that day
Impossible day dream oh this life seems

Under the haunt of safety
Under the hand of silhouettes
Under the branched tangled
Under the dangers still untold
I lost you
I found you

When will this agony end, delicious pain
Mixing lost love with living passion
Desire creeps in through all the cracks
Left untended for all these years

Under the haunt of safety
Under the hand of silhouettes
Under the branched tangled
Under the dangers still untold
I lost you
I found you
Track Name: Traveling
Thought I found my wishing well, my carnival, my carousel
Though I'd found my lucky ring, my talisman, my song to sing
Now all I get is radio silence echoing across the line
These threads stretch, threaten to break
I hope that we can save it in time

There's only so far my heart can travel before my love starts to unravel

Thought I knew my heart so well
Words to feel and stories to tell
Thought I had a map inside
Complete with key and places to hide
Now I'm lost in my own tangled mind
Living on images, flashes of memory
Slowly fracturing down new fault lines

There's only so far my heart can travel before my loves starts to unravel
Track Name: Absence Gained
Sew up the hole of memories left behind
Tuck them away with pocket knives and land mines
Where you went I could not go
You jumped ahead I could not follow

Excise you from my life
With a scalpel so precise
You won't feel a thing
Just a sting
Just a stain
Just the pain of absence gained

Presence of past paints the future
But it won't last
Paint a portrait of the present
With solitude standing
Go forth into the world
With this mask in place
To hide the lines our story carved
In my face

Excise you from my life
With a scalpel so precise
You won't feel a thing
Just a sting
Just a stain
Just the pain of absence gained
Track Name: Soon
Distance makes the heart grow fonder
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
I never felt the weight my dear
Oh the freedom of the fear of love

I only want this song to find you
Comfort and clothe you
Warm and bind you
To this voice that misses you so
To these hands that never say no to you

Please don't leave me though I'm hard to manage
Please don't deserve me though I am a challenge
I never meant to hurt you my dear
I only wish you could be near me soon
