Track Name: Hypothermic
Hypothermic

This sensation could be it
All that we have left
A day in the sun that
To ourselves we kept
Locked in a black case
Safe behind the glass
These panes I am ready to break

Please believe
I can see the cracks under the ice
Deepening
We are standing on a line
But I'm with you now
Please don't take that away
You're with me now
Lets make our escape

This procession we're leading
All dressed up in black
Could find us receding
Never coming back
These nails in our coffin
Buried with the past
These pains I am ready to break

Please believe
I can see the cracks under the ice
Deepening
We are standing on a line

Right now

There still remains so much to be seen
(So much to see)
I will not await the death of a dream tonight
(Death of a dream)

As slumber keeps setting in
I peel the frost from your pale blue skin

Please believe
I can see the cracks under the ice
Deepening
We are standing on a line

Right now
There still remains so much to be seen
(So much to see)
I will not await the death of a dream tonight
(Death of a dream)

You've become so hypothermic
You've become so cold
Track Name: Life Slips Away
Life Slips Away

We move forward
And lose ourselves
Life slips away
Life slips away

I used to gaze up at the sky
Back at myself and wonder why
I have so much and yet I
Feel so incomplete

I used to wish for better days
Reach out to hands I couldn't save
I used to know that fate
Guides the will in me

But what if we've wasted all our lives
Waiting for a night like tonight
That may never come?
(that may never come?)
And what if we're always haunted by
A moment that we've left undefined
Just to let this go
(just to let this go?)

So trusting,
You're all but deceived by your senses
Blinded,
You're walking a path
With your eyes downcast
You're rusting,
Dying to leave these defenses
Prying
Like hell at this cage
But it holds steadfast
So trusting,
You're only a slave to your footsteps
Blinded,
Retracing a ring
'Round a dream that's passed
You're rusting,
Drying like leaves on white fences,
Finding
That everyone's gone
And your die is cast, it's cast


I won't just gaze up at the sky
Back at myself and wonder why
I have so much and still I
Feel so incomplete

I won't just wish for better days
Reach out to hands I couldn't save
I won't believe that fate
Guides the will in me

For life slips away
Right through my hands
I will not waste one more last chance

What if we've wasted all our lives
Waiting for a night like tonight
That may never come?
(that may never come?)
And what if we're always haunted by
A moment that we've left undefined
Just to let this go
(just to let this go?)
Track Name: False Alarm
False Alarm

I stand
A man apart from the world
Separated
My hands grasp at unity

These streets
Crack and die here alone
Antiquated
Waiting for you to cross to me

I brace
For impact and I know
That it's long belated
As your comet comes crashing through my sky

And I couldn't care less
I can only care more

Can you help me
Put back the stars into constellations?
My space has become so dark

Will you give me
A mountain to stand on
Over these city lights?
We'd be more than just our parts

You won't be alone tonight
Together we will wait for morning light
You don't have to know it's right
But to tell the truth,
I sure don't mind

This could be a false alarm
But then again
This could be love

Can you help me
Put back the stars into constellations?
My space has become so dark

Will you give me
A mountain to stand on
Over these city lights?
We'd be more than just our parts
We could be more
Track Name: The Mirage Line
The Mirage Line

This idea was a still birth
The antithesis to reason
A prelude to a fold

And I still carry this curse
Through the shadows of treason
These chains weigh down my soul

And I, I'm so far
From the truth
A lie would lead me to you
A lie would lead me back
A lie would lead me back to you

And the desert draws a line
That cannot be erased
I know I see it
But it's hard to tell

Am I awake?
Or away?
Am I awake?
Breathing so softly...

I, I've bled the evidence dry
And I must confess this
Could be the day that I die
So I will take my own advice
And rein in my desire
Burn the map at fireside
And leave it to rot

Sunburnt skin peels from the bone
And still my footprints stand alone

And the desert draws a line
That cannot be erased
I know I see it
But it's hard to tell

Am I awake?
Or away?
Am I awake?
Breathing so softly...
Track Name: Suffocated by the Light
Suffocated by the Light

You take this hypo-critic oath
To lift up those in need
When the ones who need it most
Are the ones you refuse to feed

So preach on
About a damned generation
Destined to fall
Destined to fail and preach on
Ready your rhetoric
Righteous to the core

Perfection is a false ideal
(keep on reaching)
Paid for by the faith that you steal
(keep on reaching)
Empty your pockets to make it all right
(keep reaching)

We've been
Suffocated by the light
We are
Covered in ashes
No more
Will I be sated by a bright beyond
Comfort in a casket

I will not
Stare through stained glass window
Trying to see
A vision of me
I will not
Consider your rhetoric
Righteous anymore

Perfection is a false ideal
(keep on reaching)
Paid for by the faith that you steal
(keep on reaching)
Empty your pockets to make it all right
(keep reaching)

We've been
Suffocated by the light
We are
Covered in ashes
No more
Will I be sated by a bright beyond
Comfort in a casket

You take this hypo-critic oath
To lift up those in need
When the ones who need it most...
