Disappear 03:00
the sun hides itself away the darkness speaks in ways that shade the day run away, you'll never find me run away and stay disappear away always something more to say that can't be said nothing's left that can be bled again see the waves that break away the sea the morning that breaks refrains and takes what used to be fall apart, you'll never find me fall apart and fade away disappear away always something more to say that can't be said nothing's left that can be bled again again, again

After All 03:12
the silence in this empty room defeats me after all this time it's come to this a sudden hunger cuts me like I'm made of paper and memories leave me broken and weigh heavily after all this time it's come to this the time goes by so slowly and I'm sinking and I'm shaking there's so many ways to change the days there's so many days to change the ways after all this time it's come to this after all this time it's come to this the silent pale of morning light lies creeping on the window panes, a point of view the silence creeps inside and fills my head with longing and memories leave me yearning for what could never be after all this time it's come to this tumbling down like silence screaming close around my every move there's so many ways to change the days there's so many days to change the ways after all this time it's come to this after all this time it's come to this after all this time it's come to this

An Epitaph 03:56
for everything that has gone this will remain an epitaph to remember all that's gone but not forgotten taken to its own extreme twisted into a shadow of itself with a longing but not complete it all lingers on for everything that has gone this will remain a shadow of its former self an epitaph for everything taken to its own extreme twisted into a shadow of itself with a longing but not complete it all lingers on as an epitaph for everything, for everything for everything, for everything taken to its own extreme twisted into a shadow of itself with a longing but not complete it all lingers on as an epitaph for everything, for everything for everything, for everything

yesterday I heard from you some things I never thought I'd ever hear you say to me that way if that's the way things are if that's the way things are then I don't wanna know today what's past caught up to me I never thought we'd disagree you'd hear me say I felt this way if that's the way things are if that's the way things are then I don't wanna know if that's the way things are if that's the way things are then I don't wanna know tomorrow left me yesterday I can't imagine what you'd say to change the way things were that day if that's the way things are if that's the way things are then I don't wanna know

you've changed your ways so many times you've stayed the same so many times I thought of you, I thought a lie you've stayed the same so many times tell me anything again and stretch the truth for me again and promise anything again to me so I don't see that it remains the same if there was something I could try I'd stray away and hide inside myself and keep my thoughts denied I'd stray away and hide inside tell me anything again, tell me anything again anything, anything but it remains the same a stupid game after all this time you haven't changed I've thought these words a thousand times they echo around inside my mind tell me anything again and stretch the truth for me again and promise anything again to me so I don't see that it remains the same it remains the same

Drowning 03:48
the sun was setting as I walked around your town the moon was rising as I watched it all fall down this is no game, this is no facsimile of pain pick up the pieces of the things you've thrown away some things won't go away in every day-to-day some things won't ever change some things won't ever change I saw the pictures that would never be the same the promised pieces have all fallen with the rain there's nothing more to say, all plans have fallen through caught in a sea of ties that are always drowning you some things won't go away in every day-to-day some things won't ever change some things won't ever change drowning us all, they're drowning us all drowning us all, they're drowning us all

when the time comes I'll be ready when the day breaks I'll stand clear solitude was never a stranger at its best, it was always near picture things the way they should be picture things the way they are read a picture anyway you want don't get too near or stray too far without a doubt, things will stay the same without a doubt, things will never change without a doubt, without a doubt when the words rang I was waiting when the knife fell, I was cut solitude was never a stranger at its best, it was always near without a doubt, things will stay the same without a doubt, things will never change without a doubt, without a doubt without a doubt, without a doubt

Shadows 03:05
the sun under your feet kisses your hair and retreats far away but too near to see shadows lean and shadows tall shadows writing on the wall shadows cover thoughts unsaid shadows burst inside my head and fall your hair spins so golden shining words against my eyes what to see, what to see and think this time? shadows lean and shadows tall shadows writing on the wall shadows cover thoughts unsaid shadows burst inside my head and fall shadows lean and shadows tall shadows writing on the wall shadows cover thoughts unsaid shadows burst inside my head and fall fall fall

this time of night moves so slow awakened by thoughts that have nowhere to go a tangled web to unwind silence 'round the sorrow this time this time I'm haunted by that grave the living things left behind and the dead ones saved a tangled web to unwind silence 'round the sorrow this time with the waves crashing down standing up and spinning round I know what I'll find this time this time the words won't let me say the blood's beating, the mirror's sharp, fallen on the way a tangled web to unwind silence 'round the sorrow this time with the waves crashing down standing up and spinning round I know what I'll find this time I know what I'll find I know what I'll find I know what I'll find I know what I'll find

Inheritance 03:26
this is the way we are never falling far from the lines we've drawn never getting on with the tasks at hand falling down like sand in such a simple time I can't put my mind to sleep inheritance, inheritance that was the way we were but in silence, always inheritance, inheritance this is the way we go always in silence again we fall apart that's just the way we are with the tasks at hand falling down like sand such a simple thing remains in silence with me inheritance, inheritance that was the way we were but in silence, always inheritance, inheritance
