Track Name: All That's Forgotten
All that’s forgotten
Will keep haunting me
Till there’s familiarity
Familiarity
I stop and see
I stop and see
All that’s forgotten
Will keep haunting me
Haunting me
Track Name: Take Me There
I‘ve buried the ones so dear
Those feelings I’ve always feared
I could lie here a vacant doll
Or have them like she has them all

I’m catching up to the beating of my heart
It’s growing louder
Closer and closer I get
When I’m around her
Where is she going
Where is she going
I don’t care
Take me there

The time is sweet and slow like molasses
Springs have come and gone past us
What a slow dream we have spinning
It’s threading into my veins
It’s getting to me
Giving me all kinds of pains
Where is it going
Where is it going
I don’t care
Take me there

They’re coming up
Coming up this time
I can’t stop
Them even if I tried
I can’t stop them
I’m not trying

I don’t want to wonder anymore
It’s too wonderful
now cut the strings ‘round my throat
pulled by doubt and faith
Cut the strings ‘round my throat
get me to that place
Where are you going
Where are you going
I don’t care
Take me there
Track Name: One Day
You’re already gone
I’ve already moved on
Our phantom procession
Has become an obsession

I would rest if I knew
What this love will turn into

I’m tired of reaching from far away
I’m tired of when we say one day
one day

Two years intoxicated
Whatever we were running from we had escaped it
dancing to a crooked tune
Unraveling under the light of the moon

Every touch I get a chill
I think too much can’t trust my will
I would rest if I knew
What’ll become of me and you

I’m tired of reaching from far away
I’m tired of when we say one day
I’m tired of love from far away
I’m tired of dreaming of one day
One day


Frozen in each other’s arms
Ignoring the alarms

Tell me what does it mean tonight
Why then are you being so nice
Track Name: Unconscious
All that I hear is callously spoken
The early morning hours keep growing 
You shut down where have you gone
It has been a pattern since your adolescence has dawned

Wind up your nerves
Blow it out of your lungs
I wait for those words
Left out on your tongue 

I lie and collect 
All the pieces you throw me
I try to connect
The parts of you slowly 

….
Our simple expectations collide 
I couldn’t warn you but I tried
There’s nothing I can tell you 
You must know that I’m not myself and your not yours too 
Let’s say goodnight before we fall through
Let’s say goodnight before it’s too late to

Wind up your nerves
Blow it out of your lungs
You wait for those words
Left out on my tongue

I know you’re heated
This darkness repeated
We’ll slave to an evil
No brave enough to see it though





Leave me unconscious
I can’t speak to you like this
Leave me unconscious
You can’t be with me like this

Leave me unconscious
I can’t speak to you like this
Leave me unconscious
I can’t be with you like this
Track Name: Long Enough Along for the Ride
Drifting off, dragging on
There I go, there I’ve gone
long enough along for the ride

in good time, in good time
She’d always remind me
I’ve gone long enough along for the ride

ok love
I’ll jump off I’ll jump off
ok love
I’ll jump off I’ll jump off

There’s no finer carnival
Than getting by without arrival
You know, along for the ride

In clear view they’ll swing and turn
I like to just watch and learn
You know, along for the ride

If it’s moving
I hop on I hop on
If it was moving
I held on I held on

Common now get a grip
You’d go on for an endless trip
With no plan there is no end
No thought on the time spent

In good time, in good time
She’d always remind me

ok love
I’ll jump off I’ll jump off
ok love
I’ll jump off I’ll jump off
