Track Name: Shards
How many times have I wished upon the stars
while they shined in their silence
As I've held on, onto all of my wars
until my heart bled in defiance

You see, I've been broken long before I lost myself within the shards on the floor

And all of the times that I fell apart
I know I can always count on you
To pull me together though thick and through thin
I know you will always pull me through

You see, I've been broken long before I lost myself within the shards on the floor

Cause I'm just a man
A very broken one you see
And I stood at the edge
Just to siphon the sea

And I never believed in angels
And I don't believe in god
But I swear that you had wings
On the night my faith was lost.
Track Name: House of Fall
My friend this autumn's eve has brought most trembling to their knees
As I see you're still striving for the dying of the leaves
Your paintings demonstrate the darkness and it's hidden grace
Tucked beyond the shadows of our lies

Still your heart's a hanging lute
Strumming the life you slowly lose.
Track Name: Walking Away
Sitting here at the harbor, you know it's the only place that I can get away
Cause it seems that all these feelings find a way to get misplaced and I decay
I need to get away from here, I want to run away
From these streets that still echo out your name
And if it's all the same, you'll see why I'm walking away from you

People come, people go
In the past two years I know
It's been so empty and I'm all alone

So I packed up all my things and left you with the keys
I won't be needing them nor the burden that they bring
Still tomorrows another day but I don't think you understand just how much I have tossed away
I've set the sky on fire and you just turned away
All the dreams that I've killed, all died in vain
And if it's all the same, you'll see why I'm walking away from you

People come, people go
In the past two years I know
It's been so empty and I'm all alone

I need to get away from here, I want to run away
From these streets that still echo out your name
And if it's all the same you'll see why I'm walking away from you.
Track Name: Sink or Swim
Watch as the dogs chase down the weak
Tongues soaked defeat
So come my child, let's exhale our grief
Our wars are never won
As we all must learn, learn to become
Both friend and enemy

As we're all dying
We're dying to live
Don't you see, it's either sink or swim

Now what have you done, to my only son
I don't recognize his eyes anymore
You wore him thin, then wrapped him again
Now cloaked in self deceit
Yet still we remain
Confined and restrained
In this hell that we breed
So open your eyes
While I begin to defy
The world that shackled you and me

As we're all dying
We're dying to live
Don't you see, it's either sink or swim.
