Track Name: Follow the Swallow
Light your fire, don't burn it
Embers glow, and lay low
Permanent things aren't permanent
Catching my eye, a swallow
They seem to think its slow
Hands held out and hollow
Wishing things won't make it better
This I know is hollow.
Hold her high, she's flying
Ride it high, then let go
Gonna fall fast til you spread 'em
catching yourself like a swallow
Pain seeps away so slow
Glacial slide carves hollows
Permanent things aren't permanent
This I know I follow
Permanent things aren't permanent
This I know I follow
I follow...
The swallow...
Track Name: Purgatory (I'm the Ghost)
It's haunting me
A Ghost nobody ever wants to be
I made it up
On my way down
Its my excuse, to lay around
And drown
I know its true
I do everything my Ghost wants to do
I made it up
On my way down
Its my excuse, to lay around
And drown
My Ghost is me
My Ghost is me
My Ghost is me
My Ghost is me
I'm the Ghost nobody ever wants to be.
Track Name: The Blue Heron
Look at the Blue Heron standing
Standing alone in the surf
He doesn't think he's just standing
He's just phenomenal.
Who was it standing there starlit?
Who was it flew in my room?
Who lit in my liquor cabinet?
Who put the C in the moon?
You're breaking my heart
It's not your fault
Things just happen
It's phenomenal
You're gonna break my heart...
You're gonna break my heart...
You're gonna break my heart...
It's phenomenal.
Track Name: The Bubble
Well I told you, I think I told you
I never did tell you
But I've been here before, I don't know why
It was light, but there were stars in the sky
Tens of stars, twenties of stars
And muscle cars, and submarines
So I blew the scene
In my time machine
And went backwards and forwards
And backwards and forwards
Until I found the time
When you were mine
And I stayed there
Oh, I stayed there
But the trouble is
And there's always trouble when you live in a bubble
Is that you run out of air
No matter how much you care
So stop your crying
And move along
Stop your crying, and move along
Now I can't tell you, how to live
I can't tell you, really, anything
But I've been here before
And I like it here
The air was very clear
until we breathed it all
And then the stars in the sky
Were only visible at night
So that's when I woke
And the day became a joke
And I knew I couldn't stay there
Forever
I had to stop my crying
And move along
Track Name: Chthonic Love, Part II
Day by day
We waste and waste away
I never had to try so hard
Just to not fall apart
And the simplest of things
Brings me right down to my knees
Maybe this will be the day
That I summon the strength...
Gratitude and grace
Will put you in your place
You can bury your face
But you can't bury love
Track Name: RNR
Why are you stopping and standing there staring at doors that are shut and if only then what?
Why are you lying on top of the covers just drinking not thinking as if that would help?
Are you just lazy, or crazy and spacey, stuck in a stupor or stupidly waiting for something to change, a sign, or an auspice, when you know its just you, its just you can stop this.

I’m asking this guy and he don’t know my answer
He answers with questions I don’t have the time for
I’ve only got time
And its only time
that delivers the answers under the hum
and the buzz and the rattle
And birds morning prattle
That morning is here
You’re mourning that's clear
But listen the silence speaks more than just fear
If you listen you’ll hear
She’s always quite near.

Hurry up and get better
Pull yourself together
You’re under a pressure that’s not really there
You want to move on
She’s passed the baton
But it weighs a ton
You can’t carry the sun
But no one is asking
Its just you that’s tasking
Yourself with a feat
No one should repeat
The state change is jarring
The future alarming
But you’ll get there in time
With reason and rhyme.
Track Name: Ode
Baby, oh baby
Maybe, oh maybe
I'll find my way home, to you
Home is where you are
I got no home
I'll find a way
I'll find a zone
Baby, oh baby
Maybe, oh maybe
I'll find a way home
Home is where you are
You're never home
You're never home
You're never home
Baby, oh baby
Maybe, oh maybe
I'll find a home alone
Baby, oh baby
Maybe, oh maybe
I see the light's on
Is somebody home?
Baby, oh baby
Maybe, oh maybe
If I ring you'll answer
If I ring you'll answer
Baby, oh baby
You just left me here
Maybe, oh maybe
We'll both disappear
Baby, oh baby
Maybe just maybe
The Sun's going down
The Moon's coming out
Baby, oh baby
Maybe, oh maybe
If I leave the light on
you'll find your way home
Track Name: Chthonic Love, Part I
Day by day
We waste and waste away
I never had to try so hard
Just to not fall apart
And the simplest of things
Brings me right down to my knees
Maybe this will be the day
That I summon the strength...
Gratitude and grace
Will put you in your place
You can bury your face
But you can't bury love
Track Name: Aubade
It took some time
I took my time
To finally climb
Back in my mind
But now, my heart's in just the right place
And I can wake up
Wake up and face
The morning's song
I choose to carry on

Your sun has just arrived
Your sun is rising

I lost my heart
I lost my way
I thought
Why not just fade away?
I'm lonely now
But I know I'll make it somehow

And when I hear the morning's song
I choose to carry on

Your sun has just arrived
Your sun is rising
Your sun has just arrived
Your sun is rising
