Track Name: Awaiting Instruction
/ 1 / Awaiting Instruction
a crime its a crime we carry out
the time beats the time my love //
awaiting instruction pacing / impa-
tient / racing for words when the
day’s losing face / the certain de-
struction / she hums in the kitchen
the shelter of answer / the maze , im
amazed
awaiting instruction / the games in
the games when you / call this inac-
tion / the names just a name
arranging distraction / the flames we
have framed with our / burning reac-
tion / the planes stuck in planes
were fighting for action / you’re per-
fect , imperfect / inviting the past in’s
a curse / and it hurts
send your signals down
it’s you we're losing now //
crime , its a crime we carry out
the time beats the time my love
the time, its the time we bury now
a crime , its a crime my love //
awaiting instruction / the taming, the
blaming / the first interruption / the
birth of your worth / we’re fighting
for action, you’re perfect , imperfect
/ inviting the past in’s a curse and it
hurts.
send your signals down,
its you we're losing now /
signals signals signals
crime its a crime we carry out
the time beats the time my love
the time, it’s the time we bury now
a crime , it’s a crime my love
Track Name: Hard Act To Follow
Hard Act to Follow
i hope im not being hollow / but your
a hard act to follow. / i know im not
one to wallow / but you're a tough pill
to swallow
i hope im not being shallow / but you
have swept me in shadow / i know i
lost the apollo / but your a hard act
to follow
right from your right words we
sight comes first then we are heard
right from your right words we
sight comes first then we are...
it seems were stuck in a rhythm / the
needle skipping decision / it seems
were holding our pattern / regard-
less of all of the chatter
youre not the one
youre not the one
i hope im not being shallow / but you
have drenched me in shadow / i know
i lost the apollo / but your a hard act
to follow.
Track Name: Sitting On Top Of The World
Sitting on Top of the
World
sitting on top of the world
waiting it out til we’re sure
we might be here for years
high on the halo of your fears
nothings wrong
the cradle and the song
were made for you to come take it
til its gone
standing on top of the tower
waiting for the witchin hour
we might be here til the end
lost in the lovelight never spoken
nothings wrong
the cradle and the song
were made for you to come take it
til its gone
Track Name: It Flows
It Flows
found myself alone / can’t recall why i
call this home / surely there’s a shad-
ow on the rise / four weeks since we
formed / i feel our fingers through
the floor / praying to the patterns on
your eyes
we’ll take it as it comes / til all that’s
left are the settlin suns / let these
streets sit patient for the night / if
nothing comes for free / what will we
make of sympathy ? / every story’s
got some place to hide.
when you find your flow it flows,
it flows
when you find your road it goes,
it grows
the truth she wont be found / toilin
over soiled ground / what will fall will
fall as it were / the only vacant fight
the half worn gasp of passion’s cry /
what will stall will stall , so i’ve heard
when you find your flow it flows,
it flows
when you find your road it goes,
it grows
Track Name: Twisted Trail
On a twisted trail of paper
I see the lines roll
On a scattered sunday morning
I see the times blow
In a blistered conversation
I hear the wine's toll
In the miscommunication
We watch the signs grow

I know you're in the right
But there's no need to save me
The timings just not right
Baby not tonight
There's nothing left to say here
Lets turn out the light

Forgive me my love
Give me my love

On a misted picture window
I see the lines roll
Were gonna miss this occupation
When the time goes

Something can always grow from nothing
When you just embrace the wanting
Time is on our side
Someone can quickly turn to no one
When you're lost in where you're going
Life is on the line.

On a twisted trail of paper
I see the lines roll
Track Name: Mad As Moses
Mad as Moses
mad as moses stranded at your
shore / who will stand for mans un-
godly chore? / can commandments
fall from human kind? / who are you
to sift the sands of time?
mad as moses leading lands of lost
he who waits for answers chances all
sweating bullets built on battle scenes
raise your wrists we’re splitting at the
seams
all cries uncommon
man’s eyes forgotten
they say
all songs unspoken
mend lives when broken
i pray
mad as moses stranded at your door
/ who were you? what were we fight-
ing for? / i’ve seen the way these sto-
ries tend to go / sandstorms tossed
and nothing left to show.
Track Name: Say You're The First
Say You’re the First
say you’re the first / say you’re the
last / say it’s alright, just say you wont
ask
where we went wrong / the colors
obscene / where the waves formed
and swept us to sea.
you say you’re the worst / i say you’re
a blast / you say the lights burst / and
then they retract
where we went wrong
the murder unseen
when the last laugh
was born from the steam
say anything dear but just say my
name / the words to follow will fall
just the same / you show me the first
i show you the best / when the lights
fall, the crush of your press
the stories untold
the fortunes unseen
the heart that you hold
the purest i’ve seen
the glories untold
the fortunes unseen
the heart that you hold
the furious dream
say it so clear
say you’re the first
say you’re the last
say it’s alright
just say you wont ask
Track Name: Time
Time
the time has come / for letting go of
what we know / the time has arrived /
for stepping stones to new unknowns
all these precious games
the maiden names
we’ve stayed the same
all these simple crimes
the wasted lines
we’re losing time
run and soar
tiil we fall
climb and claw
can’t live without your love anymore
to find the one / who’ll mend a sleeve
with sympathy / to climb and run
through stepping stones / o’er than
below
Track Name: Returning The Shard
Returning the Shard
returning the shard to the glass that
has broken / come see the day that
has long been misspoken / release
the lights and colors you’ve hidden /
as they laugh all about because you
must be kiddin
waiting for the dawn
they’ll thank you for it all
wavin your palms in the slowest of
motion / long live the day where the
brave break for no one / lost on the
limb of the limelight they blame you
/ turn it around and soon they will
name you
waiting for the dawn
they’ll thank you for it all
aah ...
cant feel my hands but i feel your frus-
tration / soon we will land but for now
please be patient / you cant fade me
out but you can switch the station /
so workin it out becomes grand in-
cantation
waiting for the dawn
they’ll thank you for it all
Track Name: Miles To Go
Miles to Go
well i know / we’ve got miles to go til
we sleep / we’ve got crowds to feed
back at home / ‘fore the feelings gone
as the violet light / blurs the wrong
from the right / cant we let this all /
sit tight?
well i’ve seen / just what’s left of me
implode / as the tension grows, / we
agree its no crime to breathe
as the violet light / blurs the wrong
from the right / cant we let this all /
sit tight?
as the violet light / brings stillness
back from the night / cant we let this
all / sit tight ?
