Track Name: out of the fade
an orbital noose
a halo too loose
a blister from truth
tie up your armies in a truce
a thicket of ways
the sky is a maze
a tear in a blaze
burn off your shadows in the shade

and if I can tell you we’ll never analyze, never theorize this love
and if I can keep you we’ll never ostracize, never stigmatize this love
and if I can move you we’ll never paralyze, never tranquilize this love
and if I can, I will

a fate siamese
a day you can’t seize
a sail without breeze
fall on your sword of damocles
a still life in blue
true colors shine through
infinity’s through
and owing nothing’s overdue

and if I can tell you we’ll never analyze, never theorize this love
and if I can keep you we’ll never ostracize, never stigmatize this love
and if I can move you we’ll never paralyze, never tranquilize this love
and if I can, I will

cathedrals of waves
unstoppable days
a tower of sway
is just a slip away from saved
the flare of appeal
the sigh of a wheel
time never feels
like doing anything but steal

and if I can tell you we’ll never analyze, never theorize this love
and if I can keep you we’ll never ostracize, never stigmatize this love
and if I can move you we’ll never paralyze, never tranquilize this love
and if I can, I will
Track Name: black swan love
in a way there’s no way to say this
with those words that just want to stay missed
between all of the things that might kiss
is a world that is swelling with pure bliss

it only takes forever
to make always be never
holding isn’t better
than landing black swan love

days are trains and rivers are headstrong
will what is be mirrored by what's gone
when its time for sinking your life sun
in your ocean of what was not done

it only takes forever
to make always be never
holding isn’t better
than landing black swan love

can it be that we’re not what we want
sometimes free enough for our denouement
its as close as hope is against daunt
no more ghosts if there’s no more mind haunt

it only takes forever
to make always be never
holding isn’t better
than landing black swan love
Track Name: as if it's the last time
as if it's the last time
to stain it in sublime
as if it's the last time
your battleships entwine
as if it's the last time
the bloom expires the grind
as if its the last time
you leave them something beautiful behind

was it everything it was
did you do it just because
someone told you there was love
so below and as above

as if it's the last time
you stare out to the sea
as if if it's the last time
you watch the sunset bleed
as if it's the last time
you find out what it means
as if it's the last time
your seeing what you'd never thought you'd see

was it everything it was
did you do it just because
someone told you there was love
so below and as above

as if it's the last time
to pass through naked doors
as if it's the last time
to hold what you adore
as if it's the last time
don't save it anymore
as if it's the last time
unchain yourself from what you were before

was it everything it was
did you do it just because
someone told you there was love
so below and as above
Track Name: for only the rest of your life
for when you might not want to breathe
for when it’s way too far to see
for when you feel it in the breeze
for when it’s only you to be

fall with me
on sand and sea
on thorny ground
and lilac downs
for only the rest of your life,
the rest of your life

for when you don’t know what is true
for when you can’t add up the clues
for when there’s nothing you can do
for when its all in what you lose

fall with me
on sand and sea
on thorny ground
and lilac downs
for only the rest of your life,
the rest of your life
Track Name: left like a bone
wake me if I’m not alive
take me if I don’t arrive
make me if I wouldn’t try
slake me with what I won’t cry

we are falling into the ground
we are soaring into the clouds

kneel me when I am too proud
reel me in where I’m going down
reveal me where I can’t be found
steal me from where I am bound

we are roaring without a sound
for love’s warning to surround

heal me if I never bleed
deceive me if I don’t believe
besiege me I won’t receive
free me if my fate is sealed

we are hurling hollow stones
we are turning in the throes
we are burning in the glow
ashes, knowing, left like a bone
