Track Name: Monte Verde
You wake up in a maelstrom spiraling downwards into the water
Pale green light with no sound, just bubbles escaping from your mouth

You are on the ocean's bed all but gone

So watch your feet with every step, but keep treading lightly, keep up ahead
Cracks and creaks from all the weight that's bound by the memories that just won't fade

You are on the ocean's bed all but gone

Why'd it have to go in this direction?
Faster then the blink of an eye
Stuck in the forth dimension, just waiting for a sign
Track Name: In August
No this is not how you thought it would be
And you're pained as you struggle to see
Some kind of light a rush of warmth that spreads through the hollow
Vessels you're traversing not knowing what to follow

Well we're not the first, we're not the last
But it doesn't mean we're not worth a damn
And so we're told things come and go
And we are not an exception

Oh and she said..
Please hold me close yeah hold me tight
Just let me know I'll be alright
But it had weaved her grips and shut her down
And instead of breaking in and breaking it she just ran out

Well we're not the first, we're not the last
But it doesn't mean we're not worth a damn
And so we're told things come and go
And we are not an exception

So come inside, don't look out for the things you're not today
Just come inside but hold the door and kiss the pain away

Well we're not the first, we're no the last
But it doesn't mean we're not worth a damn
And so we're told things come and go
And we are not an exception
Track Name: Scatterbrain
Heard her voice but it's not the same yeah it doesn't feel quite right; snagged in a rut
If I could learn to let thoughts go and settle in the dirt I might start to drift

Now darling please touch my soul or have you forgotten how
I've been falling through your holds and it seems I'm heading south

Gone without a trace, and you don't know quite why
It's hard to find your way when you've covered your eyes

And I don't mind if you need your space but mind's in contention
And I just want to rest
I try to think of too many things and I'm lost in a whirl wind
And i just need to rest

Now darling please touch my soul or have you forgotten how
I've been falling through your holds and it seems I'm heading south

Gone without a trace, and you don't know quite why
It's hard to find your way when you've covered your eyes

Oh my scatterbrain
Oh my scatterbrain sabotage

Gone without a trace, and you don't know quite why
It's hard to find your way when you've covered your eyes
Track Name: Sun-drenched
How she sways in summer winds but locked in by her roots
Got two arms outstretched to two that latch too soon
Oh how sweet you are the city's own living wild flower
Bent over to the light defying all the cancer

This is for all of my senses that I just don't know yet

And how we think of days long gone and wonder what they meant
Only hope that we can leave all feelings of resentment
Cause how we have forgotten a certain way we used to feel
Bent over to the sun not a callus on our heels

Expectations are not always met
It's your choice on how you react
I'll take my time, I'll search the inside for all it's worth

This is for all of my senses that I just don't know yet
Track Name: Anonymous Letter
Tell me what's my face when I'm not seen
A haze formed around my eyes and placed within a fading dream

I'm unsure just where my heart lays but I hope to take you there
I know that my art is flawed but it helps keep me here
For my own good

So tell me what's a breath worth nowadays?
Cause I tried to drown myself but I breathed and stopped and felt the waves

I'm unsure just where my heart lays but I hope to take you there
I know that my art is flawed but it helps keep me here
For my own good

No I don't want to break now that I have sprouted new legs and I am walking

I'm unsure just where my heart lays but I hope to take you there
I know that my art is flawed but it's what keeps me here
