Track Name: Overture: The Dawn of Conscious Life
Life began with a beating heart, or a sonogram, a kick in you.
My acceptance of what my own body is. Dust and breath.
A hand-me-down. Isn't life so beautiful and short?
Track Name: Clock Hands
The melodies embody me with hooks of hope and strings accompanied to complement the symphonies.

And my hearts screams to the rhythm of the drums, I sing about the love of the greater one. The first and last to come.

This is it, so invigorating. This is it, and so it begins.

I know you chose me to open up the gates to life on this earth.
Show me anything and everything.

The energy infused in me with passion stance, I'll chant to all the freed, the wicked lost in disbelief

And my eyes see just a vision of the road I travel on and i know one day I'll grow to conquer all I've sown

This is it, so invigorating. This is it, and so it begins.

I know you chose me to open up the gates to life on this earth.
Show me anything and everything.

Show me the world through brand new eyes.

(Canyons and mountains are singing in triumph and victory over the devil You can't stop us now. We are climbing much higher and higher and higher and...)

I know you chose me to open up the gates to life on this earth
Show me anything and everything.

Canyons and mountains are singing in triumph and victory over the devil You can't stop us now. We are climbing much higher and higher and...
Track Name: Another Sunday Morning
Lo and behold, I've been running in the same old circles.
Hand on the rope, I'm falling faster than I've ever known.
Come around just come around. I keep telling myself but I can't seem to shake it.

Can't change the past I can only better all the situations that have come to nothing. Can't take it back.

I'm falling, falling from above and there you are.
You caught me, caught me once again into your arms.

I heard the words from a preacher on a Sunday morning.
And he said boy, "your heart is in the wrong direction".
Come around just come around. I keep telling myself but I can't seem to shake it.

Can't change the past I can only better all the situations that have come to nothing. Can't take it back.

I'm falling, falling from above and there you are.
You caught me, caught me once again into your arms.

Save me from the deepest darkest moments of the night.
Call my name and wake me from this mass of sleeping life.
Save me from the deepest darkest moments of the night.
My enemies await the chance to shatter me with memories and regret.

I'm falling, falling from above and there you are.
You caught me, caught me once again into your arms.

Make me your voice, to bare forth your word.
Track Name: Dancing with the Dead
Alone you are my garden, the essence of my creed.
I bow down before you, partaking from your tree.
I hear your precious whispers, they comfort me in times
when lights and sounds can't calm me down.
I trust in you with all of my life.

Perfect ghost wrap your veil around me.
Flawless soul spark a fire inside me.

I was once was walking amongst the fallen.
I was dancing with the dead men.
I was hopeless, I was broken.
Until I found you I was going nowhere.

Alone you are my haven, your the object of my core.
As I reach my hands up towards the sky, you send your hands down reaching out to mine.

Perfect ghost wrap your veil around me.
Flawless soul spark a fire inside me.

I was once was walking amongst the fallen.
I was dancing with the dead men.
I was hopeless, I was broken.
Until I found you I was going nowhere.

Perfect ghost wrap your veil around me.
Flawless soul spark a fire inside me.
(My love surround me with your warmth.)

I was once was walking amongst the fallen.
I was dancing with the dead men.
I was hopeless, I was broken.
Until I found you I was going nowhere.
Track Name: Two Gentlemen of Verona
If love is blind how can you see these imperfections binding me?
You're draining me, and as the water leaves the body you filter the self-restraint in me. As your love marries my fury, we break vows we bury our beliefs.

You know your only seventeen.
So don't give yourself away.

Hear me, feel me here.
(I wear it like a mask, my dark and captive laugh. A comedy to die for.)
Speaking from my heart through my mouth.
(But melting into tears, the faces you reveal. The tragedy is over.)

With memories came clouded dreams. We've lost again, again it seems and it's killing me. As the poison fills the bloodstream, you suffocate the life that's left in me. As my conscience now is sleeping, my ears can hear the words you speak.

You know your only seventeen.
So don't give yourself away.

Hear me, feel me here.
(I wear it like a mask, my dark and captive laugh. A comedy to die for.)
Speaking from my heart through my mouth.
(But melting into tears, the faces you reveal. The tragedy is over.)

From my heart through my mouth. Through my mouth.

You know your only seventeen.
So don't give yourself away.

Hear me, feel me here.
(I wear it like a mask, my dark and captive laugh. A comedy to die for.)
Speaking from my heart through my mouth.
(But melting into tears, the faces you reveal. The tragedy is over.)
Track Name: Illusions
Sing me a song to move me along, through the river of my dreams. (Through the river of my dreams)
The scent in the air, the vision is there. It's enough to take me home.
I'll spend the evening all alone. Alone.

Can't this be real? You're the only thing I wanted.
And still I'm here with illusions of devotion, but I won't give up.

Sing me a song to carry me on, until the calming of the sea. (Until the calming of the sea)
From April to June I went to the moon. I saw the world from higher ground.
I'll take my chances here and now. Alone.

Can't this be real? You're the only thing I wanted.
And still I'm here with illusions of devotion, but I won't give up.

Can you feel my heart pulsing beyond the ordinary.
Searching through the dark, igniting the way for me.
Enlighten me, enlighten me.

Can't this be real? You're the only thing I wanted.
And still I'm here with illusions of devotion, but I won't give up.
Track Name: Step, Step
Step step step on my heart. I'll play ground and you play walk.
Tread the skin until it bleeds. Return to me the heartache that I've put you through. And still you haven't yet to move unto a mountain from this street below the old sea.

You don't need the empathy. I don't want your sympathy.
Cut the roots that make this tree increase. You'll see it's me;

That makes your heart sing songs as it mourns until dawn and still you wake to war with your thoughts and whose wrong. It's not your fault dear.

Shrink shrink into my hands, I'll place you in my puzzled head.
I'll let you walk around in it and see why I'm scared to welcome you back
in my arms. And squeeze the life out from your warmth. Your beauty heals my ugly scars but I don't deserve you.

You don't need the empathy. I don't want your sympathy.
Cut the roots that make this tree increase. You'll see it's me;

That makes your heart sing songs as it mourns until dawn and still you wake to war with your thoughts and whose wrong. It's not your fault dear.

It's you and I on each other's side and I'd fight for both, for both our lives.

I'll make your heart sing songs as it mourns until dawn and still you wake to, war with your thoughts and whose wrong. It's not your fault dear.
Track Name: Aimez-Moi Toujours
I'll place my hand to the side of your neck,
as you take me in with a hold on my wrist.
Together we'll dance as the blood is propelled,
the pulse creates a rhythm, and the rhythm it helps us to know we're real.

With these rings we've made promises we couldn't keep.

A breathless descent to the thought we both dread
That holding me up is pulling you further in.
Will death do us part? Were we dead from the start?
Is our story ending? Can we alter our hearts for the better or for worse?

With these rings we've made promises we couldn't keep.
Forever hold your peace if we can last tonight.

With these rings we've made promises we couldn't keep.
Forever hold your peace if we can last tonight.
Track Name: Chasing Faith
Now I see the world through brand new eyes.
As I look I see the daylight shining through the night.
Let your beauty paint my loveless soul
As the color of my spirit slowly rises with the waking dawn

I've been made new through you...

I'm not ashamed, not afraid.
We'll change the world with just our faith.
There's a never-ending war inside of me,
but your love is all I need.

I was chasing faith and losing hope,
Until the day I caught onto your love
in reveries of you I feel reborn

I've been made new through you...

I'm not ashamed, not afraid.
We'll change the world with just our faith.
There's a never-ending war inside of me,
but your love is all I need.

Generations will be shaking in presence with love.
Fires burning, fear departing in presence with love.

I'm not ashamed, not afraid.
We'll change the world with just our faith.
There's a never-ending war inside of me,
but your love is all I need.
Track Name: Elegy
Drowning in your word I tell the people that you're not too pleased.
Please forsake the gods you've built or suffer angers searing heat.
You respond you're safe, no fear, and for the sake of your salvation well my friend I hope you're right.
Track Name: Writings from a Casket
So long to everything I knew I thought that you and me could get it all together but I guess I was so wrong.
I didn't have a clue. I had put all my faith in you I guess the weight was way too much for you too.

Find a balance, what's that sound? Oh it's the sirens from the neighbors call I guess they see me on the city roof about to fall.

This is the anthem of a step, that you and I call death.

Murder she carved into my chest with the intentions of the best I guess my plague was way to deadly for her.

This is the anthem of a step, that you and I call death.

Hear me out, I still love you.
"Then what is this about?" I know you're wondering.
I've tried to fix this mess but in the end it's two hearts damaged instead. Pick up your chin my darling, I just want to know your smiling as I fall to heaven.

As I fall to heaven.

This is the anthem of a step, that you and I call death.
