Track Name: Fates
My friend don’t go
I can’t see past forever
These days move slow
These days move slow
My friend don’t go
My friend don’t go
My friend don’t go
My friend don’t go
Track Name: Poetry (Reprise)
I can’t shake the sense I’m drowning
You push me in the dirty water
It’s like daggers through my heart
Leaves caught in my scruffy hair
And I remember when I saw you
On the other side of that shitty bar
I knew you’d be mine
It was only for a short time

I’m down, but I’m not out
I’m down, but these wings of wax will help me fly

Bottles litter my bedroom floor
Like a city of sunken ships
Although I drank them all
I found no answers within
So I think I’ll take a walk
Try and clear my foggy head
I’ll stare up at the stars
Daedalus don’t let me climb too high
Track Name: Sinking Ships
The first one down is for your regret
The second for your own self-neglect
If you want to take my advice
Drink your shot and say your goodbyes
Just be sure you make it home tonight

Tell me where you’re going
I’ve been there, I can’t stop running

The bell rings with a frightening tone
You’re thrown out into the night
You find yourself stumbling around alone
This happens almost every night
You’ve spent all your money
You’ve fucked up your life
You’ve got no place left to go

Tell me where you’re going
I’ve been there, I can’t stop running

You can’t live with regret in your heart
Just let go and make a new start

Tell me where you’re going
I’ve been there, I can’t stop running
Track Name: End Tome
Deception falls like shrapnel
From my vocal chords
Painting pictures of events
That are better off ignored
These words stacked like dominos
Just one breath could make them fall
Ahab fought the Whale
When he should have fought the man he’d become

My fate fully sealed
I should have known
There’s wisdom in great novels
And forgotten tomes
The water around my ankles
Lets me know I’ve swum too far
Please don’t try and save me
I’m already gone

Deceit clings upon my mouth
Allowing no truths to come out
Like iron bars that shields the facts
In a vault that cannot be passed
These thoughts pass from lip to lip
Like a parasite or germ
I’ve been treading water
When I should’ve fought the man that I’ve become

My fate fully sealed
I should have known
There’s wisdom in great novels
And forgotten tomes
The noose around my neck
Lets me know I’ve swung too far
Please don’t try and save me
I’m already gone
Track Name: Silhouettes
Hey honey you’re a silhouette
A fading memory
The ghost of my regret
The only thing that’s left behind
Days and nights spin back and forth
On the tundra I had some way to go
But I’ve found some peace of mind

I don’t know what you do to me
The sight of you makes me fall down to my knees
I don’t know what you do to me
The frostbite’s spreading right to my teeth

There’s a storm front closing in
My limbs are frozen
I’ve lost my extremities
It’s not long before I’m gone
I’ve been praying for your warm embrace
To wrap around me and superheat my veins
This thought brings me peace of mind

I don’t know what you do to me
The sight of you makes me fall down to my knees
I don’t know what you do to me
The frostbite’s spreading right to my teeth

Honey I’m lonely so please stop by and tell me I’m your only
Baby I need you to save me from this mess of my own making

Hey honey you’re a silhouette
Draw the curtains lets get down to it
Because now’s the time
I want to make you mine…
Track Name: Grinding My Teeth
After hours and hours of hiss I finally concluded
The world is too noisy on days like this
So many mouths have exercised opinion
And topped it off with inferior advice
But I prefer to take my time and figure out which choice is right
Don’t get me wrong, I pick the wrong one every time
Life should be a panic but I just haven’t got the time
I’m constantly scheming, new ideas and concepts
None of them are finished, I haven’t made it that far yet
There’s always something new inside my head
Some fresh way of wasting my time
Currently I’m spread real thin in various states of disrepair
How can I do this?
Sometimes it seems too much to bare
I’d be grinding on my teeth I’d be pulling out my hair
If only I had the time to spare
If only I had the time to spare
