Track Name: Trace
Just because I don't like everything I see, fear me
I am just a man of thought and certainty, fear me

Every time I turn around all I hear is the same old story
What I know is what I know and what I don't might just destroy me

Though you try to trace your steps,
leave behind something dear to you. You decide

Now that we are all alone, what do you really want from me?
Where'd you come from?
Will you find all the lines and lies and faults that brought you here?
Could you let them go?
What will you find?
Track Name: Our Ghosts Take Shape
Hazy eyes above ground
Listen to the sounds
They stir below and our ghosts take shape underneath
All the objects move connected through and through
We digress and our ghosts confess beneath the floors of our room

The path you walk has been walked a thousand times yet no two feet are the same. No mind no peace.
Pay you mind
Take extra care of your path as you are the only witness to your journey constantly

Gaze Into the gloom
The furniture will move
They stir below and our ghosts take shape beneath the floors of our rooms
Track Name: Ballad Of A Broken Man
Have you heard the ballad of a broken man?
His dreams had been destroyed and he could barely stand
He always believed he only needed a plan
One day he discovered things were out of his hands

Don't know where he's going
He's lost his way
Don't know where he's going
He can't stay

He sits alone and thinks about what might have been
The life he could have lived but things unforeseen came along and deconstructed all his means
He's standing in the shadows of his broken dreams

Have you heard this ballad of a broken man?
His heart was held together by a rubber band
After several years he found he'd lost his soul
A downward spiral took him spinning out of control
Track Name: Aprils Postcard In May
When Aprils card arrives in May it's just as well and all the same
We're biting down and taking on
It's hard to get away from it
They feed it to us on the news and lead us down; we are their muse
Because it takes a lot to fight, we take a pill and say good night
An all familiar numbers game
We try to rise above the blame
An empty road can take the pain
It all depends on where you are

They're blind
It's where you are

When Aprils card arrives in May it's just as well and all the same
We're biting down and taking on
It's hard to get away from it
They feed it to us on the news and lead us down; we are their muse
Because it takes a lot to fight, we take a pill and break it all

They're blind
We break it all
