OK, Go 00:29
(I am) Blind 04:42
inside this telltale heart until our fingers part between our reaching hands a story written bright above and out of sight of our blinded eyes take time steal mine away again this time this moment i am blind ageless and divine hallowed and cast aside this mystic’s vision untold a fiction shimmering with light a seer bereft of sight these doors forever closed
from days gone by i am awakening with sight reborn, with purpose felt anew a creature formed by hands of mercy a phoenix child flying on molten wings from ashes cold our love will arise a tale once told the drifting shreds of lives lost within the spreading dark, no light to call them home i touch your face with hands of mercy an angel child who never found her wings take one for love, and another for loss and so to shape the feathers of your wings i touch with care, with hands of mercy your soaring form, that found its way to me
Dusk Falls 03:48
autumn has passed me by again heeled by winter’s lidded gaze my mind wanders farther in and frost embitters every day dusk falls in the dreaming a promise of snow spinning threads of gossamer to weave my secret skin haunted by these thoughts of you heaven-bright and spectre-grim darkened days have given voice to febrile creatures, dusk and wan each created in your likeness and given a stage to play upon
thy hand, belinda – darkness shades me. on thy bosom, let me rest. more i would, but death invades me – death is now a welcome guest. when i am laid in earth may my wrongs create no trouble in thy breast. remember me, but ah! forget my fate.
i don't know when everything inside me died or when when the pain began i can't recall the scent of joy or the color of happiness over the edge and nothing's there to catch me when i fall nothing left of my inner light no reason to smile i am gone drifted away on the wind
Regret 04:44
once upon a time a life i’ve lived before a different face i wore you had another name these dreams of dark regret are filled with bitter tears chasing ghosts of the past and all the lives we’ve not lived yet so close the sound of our nirvana a kiss and we are found and lost like promised love at cycle’s end reborn again this weary soul always longing for your hands
Love Songs 04:02
all alone again, these thoughts running through and through my head and drowning me in their sorrow and their lies and all the colors kept inside, oh love songs kept close to my heart like pretty lies they start to creep inside and devour my mind love songs kept close to my heart now and then i try to run away from the horrors by my side but still they come and creep inside and play their tricks on my mind, oh i will see in time the truth amidst all my dearest lies, my fondest melodies collide with words you’ve spoken in my mind, oh
Shadows Cast 04:17
shadows cast like sins of heaven stirring echoes, shifting minds pouring out a cold grey dream-state raining portents, hailing signs a vision, a nightmare burns in colors in your mind a fever, it’s madness given meaning in time rainbow glow a washed-out nightmare bringing sorrow, pouring wine faster in a spinning whirlwind fall like petals from a vine blinded by the incandescence fade to silence, passing bright colors in a charcoal dreamscape stealing thoughts of wondrous sights
Ophelia 03:53
turning her back upon the rising moon, watching the tide roll out thinking about the path she chose, thinking about the friends she's lost and they laugh at her but she knows they'll never know of the joy she's found in the darkness tracing faces on the ceiling, watching them fade into the night it's never enough for her that he holds her hand it's never enough for her to know he's thinking of her in the night it's never enough for her, nothing could ever satisfy her it's never enough for her to go on living one more night turning her back upon the rising sun watching the clouds roll in thinking about the plans she's made thinking about the dreams she's lost and it's nothing new just another shade in this world of grey but it's the only joy in the darkness was never enough for her that he held her hand was never enough for her to know he's thinking of her in the night was never enough for her nothing could ever satisfy her was never enough for her to go on living one more night
Coriolis 03:22
turning and turning the eye of the storm endless whirl of cloudy sky heart now burning draw my pain with ashes bind my limbs, i am changed forever and always turning trembling and moving inside me, a storm wind like whispered song grey and swirling with a word anoint me with a thought, i am sworn forever and always turning and turning our love is a storm endless whirl of cloudy sky hearts now burning draw my life with ashes bind my soul, i am changed forever and always turning


Our second album was birthed after several years of rough times, losses, and tragedies large and small, reflected in every track.
