Track Name: Fortress
Fortress
The light grows weaker and farther away
Pulled down by a weight and lost in the grey

I woke up screaming today
The kiss on my neck had faded away
Fear finds me, I can say
There’s a demon inside me who tortures me every way

The problem you see
Fortune can leave us
It’s not only me
Alone in this fortress
The past is what binds us the future won’t find us alone
The fight grows bleaker and leads us astray
Fooled now by our hate and lost in the fray

I hear it’s raining today
The hiss of a snake approaching its prey
Fear finds me, I can say
There’s a demon inside me who tortures me every way

I want to cry out
I want to burst at the seams
I want to lash out
At what is left in my dreams
I want to burn out
I want to smother the screams
I want to learn how
To make the choice that redeems
Track Name: Sinking Ship
Sinking Ship

The dream never dies
Only the dreamer
Shelter disguise
Make us believers

I have tried to count the tears
Falling on these keys
A smile looks back through the years
Of my memories

Carry us home
From this sinking ship
The sails will rip
The scales will tip
Without you

The stream never dries
Only the fever
Behind her eyes
She is a prisoner

I have a tried to count the tears
Falling on these keys
I see a future filled with fears
As I beg please

Beneath darkened skies
The ship cries to leave her
Halo of flies
Waves have consumed her
Track Name: Eulogy
Eulogy

I’ve seen women weep
For the secrets that men keep
We’ve been swimming deep
Waters of communal sleep

And now we’ve found

Life is not a eulogy
Waiting to be said
Life is no apology
Spoken to the dead
Life is what we lose
Every single day
Life is what we choose
It’s chosen when we say

A heart attack that lasts for days
Hands shake unfocused gaze
We walk the path with strays
We stalk them through this maze
And now we’ve found

Save us from hell
You know we can’t follow you through
We don’t want to be here
We just don’t know what else to do

Now our time has turned to trial
Of blood and spit and bile
Track Name: Nadir
Nadir

Lost at sea
What will become of me?
My brother

Highs and lows
Friends and foes, doves and crows
Facing each other

Has brought us here today and then
What can we share or say
In the end?

If we’re all in this together
Why do I feel so alone?

Cost will be
Infinitely paid by me
And others
Skies will know
Where you go
Ebb and flow
Strangers and lovers

Lost at sea
What will become of me?
My brother
