Track Name: 1959
It's hard to wake when all I feel is anguish
I've gotta be Braver
I never thought I'd see you fall asleep forever

It's all real, the inner voices
Your spirit wandered away from all that you love
You never meant it
Your spirit wandered away too soon and young
We'll never relive

I'm finding ways to deal with all the emptiness
The writings on the wall are cardinal and runic

It's all real, the inner voices
Your spirit wandered away from all that you love
You never meant it
Your spirit wandered away too soon and young
We'll never relive

You're a stranger hollowing my heart and purpose
Following the voices of your lost

It's all real, the inner voices
Your spirit wandered away from all you love
You never meant it
Your spirit wandered away too soon and young
You'll never relive
Track Name: Faceless
Feel your whispering send shivers down my body
Taking what I want from someone else's daughter yet I can't feel her at all

I'll try and avoid it cause she is all I see
But they have coveted my innocence with inviting sights and lonely nights

She is faceless in the positions where you used to lay
Satisfying my desires of the skin
Forgotten in the morning light

I'll try and avoid it cause she is all I see
But they have coveted my innocence with inviting sights and lonely nights

When I can’t feel her at all

I've set aside my morals and fallen into sin
Objectifying someone to taste their salty skin
When all along, I've wanted your love
The thought of never being so close
When all along I've wanted your love – if only once again

I'll try and avoid it cause she is all I see
But they have coveted my innocence with inviting sights and lonely nights
Track Name: A Long Farewell
I'm afraid that you've gone hollow
Using fantasy to void your sorrow

I pulled you closer
Now, I see that the absence of your love was never intent as you ran away

To the arms of grasping demons
As they whisper words of malice

I pulled you closer
Now, I see that the absence of your love was never intent as you ran away

Into the only life you've ever known
You sacrificed our love and our home
You promised me I'd never be alone again

Stay away, you'll never love me again

To the newer you may you know that I forgive you
To the newer you, may you find love

I pulled you closer
Now, I see that the absence of your love was never intent as you ran away

To the newer you may you know that I forgive you
To the newer you, may you find love
Track Name: Wooden Heart
Imprisoned by your love
Within your reach, but never closer
I long to taste your skin again; revealing all of our lost affection

And I remember when you left against your promises
You sailed away to far away places

I'm praying as a castaway into this salty dream

You're drifting ever further into nothing

And I remember when you left against your promises
You sailed away. Too far.
It's hard for me to talk about, the way things were
For me to carry on and sink my Wooden Heart

I'll wash away the memories into these deep dark waters
Track Name: The Girl In Green
If only I could forget who you were
You were the girl in green

It started as a message that I should have never read
I slowly fell for the lovely flowing red
The way you breathe the very air

If only I could forget who you were
You were the girl in green
I found you in my dreams

And I don't recognize you anymore
Chasing love in the tides of the ocean
They'll swallow you under

If only I could forget who you were
You were the girl in green
I found you in my dreams and you let me in
You let me in and I never left
Track Name: Legacy
I wanted to hear you say
The ember in your eyes is burning away
I wanted to feel it all
The violence of your love

And you'll never see the difference in me
I'll silently be awaiting your amnesty

I still remember sitting in your car
With broken glass I carved my way out of your heart
I only needed time to grow

And you'll never see the difference in me
I'll silently be awaiting your amnesty

The only thing that I regret is not responding fast enough
Or realizing that I was losing my everything

Now you'll never see the difference in me
I'll silently be awaiting your amnesty

We lost our legacy
Track Name: Time's End
I saw you wandering among the glowing lights
Your eyes were coloured by the product of a knife

I've followed your heart far too long
The journey ends in promises that withered long ago

And we will never know the conversations of growing in our skin
The approaching victims of time and sin

I've followed your heart far too long
The journey ended short
I've followed your heart to the edge of Earth
The journey ends in promises that withered long ago

But now, I know the ignorance of hoping you were another
But now, I know
But now, I know the answer
I've finally realized the truth was in your eyes

I've followed your heart far too long
The journey ended short
I've followed your heart into the edge of Earth
The journey ends with us

I've followed your heart far too long
The journey ended short
I've followed your heart into the edge of Earth
The journey ends in promises that withered long ago
Track Name: Braver
Reality is taking over
The emptiness of our house reverberates with the voices of the dead
I fell apart again, for the last time

The scenery has slowly faded
Shades of grey where once was sated
The colours of the world have paled away, until another love

I realize the implication of following your words
But I can't help at all
Even though, through the seasons, you have proven your weakness

The scenery has slowly faded
Shades of grey where once was sated
The colours of the world have paled away, until another love

I never thought I'd ever say that
I've reached the point where I've accepted
That you and I will have to live with a future we will never know

The scenery has slowly faded
Shades of grey where once was sated
The colours of the world have paled away until another love
