Track Name: Meet Me At Dawn
You can never walk the path,
If you refuse to come down from the clouds,
You can't justify your past,
If you refuse to live life, in the now,

Where errors have been made,
You know others will be blamed,
And all you want is the same,
Things you do, done unto you,

We sang hymnals when you were born,
And we'll sing dirges when you die,
We'll stay silent when you take off,

And we'll pick you up when you fail to fly,
And of all of the things that we will teach you,
Here is hoping that you realize,
That this love ie everlasting,
And that means you'll never need goodbyes.


I flew up so high,
The tops of the clouds looked like,
White sheets of ice,
Floating on an endless sea of sky,
You said don't ever look back,
Don't ever look down though,
In terms of the past,
We were born on the ground
Track Name: The Sequencer
Out of the clay, the seeds I had sewn,
Reached up to the sun, until they had grown,
And as the rains came, and clouds passed them by,
They left new life in the earth, before they withered and died.

Turn it over, that ancient engine, let it come alive and rise,
Slow it down and pull it over, and let us analyze,
All the words of countless men who, have come and long since died,
And we can all decide.

We can all decide yes, decide, all can we yes it’s true,
We can all decide yes, decide, all can we till’ it’s through,

When the city streets had, blackened mirrors on the road,
And the night sky shined phosphorescent light, through a million holes,
All of my thoughts were drifting, direct but insincere,
And as the fog was lifting, finally the path became clear,
Track Name: Two Fifths (Sight & Sound)
When the sunlight, shone down from the sky,
And the wind raced the birds through the trees nearby,
And when the blades of grass, bent and broken,
Left hints of a promise that was yet to be spoken,

Out loud
When skin and eyes beheld, an earthly desire,
There, deeply rooted in ignorance and hope was a fire,
When given oxygen and allowed to breathe,
Would yield a force so grand, it was fated to be my destiny
After the curtain falls, and the stage closes for the night,
When the frequency is gone, and no more art is amplified,

The lines have intertwined and are tangled in such a way,
That if you leave fate out of the picture, that’s probably how they’ll stay.

Wish these eyes could film, and document sight and sound,
Cause then I’d relive each moment as fast as film would allow
Track Name: Diaphanous Ardor
Sometimes when I walk out my door,
I see all this beauty that no one can account for,
And it makes me realize, that all of our lives
Are just blessings or accidents in disguise,

And we are all, so lucky to be alive.
And the lip that blanket my teeth,
Were dead weight on the words beneath,
And the skin that restrains my veins,
Held fast, against their escape.

From the time I wake under the pastel skies,
Until I lay down with the stars kissing my eyes,
I walk through the snow, the rain and the sun,
I may be cold and wet and burned but I’ll at least know where I came from.

If I am to hide and stay forgotten then let me go.

And all I know is,
Everything I see
And the hands that, cover my eyes,
Fail to shield them, from the light,
And the mind that facilitates my reason,
Never figured out how my heart, had it so badly beaten.
