Track Name: Look Backwards, Lean Forwards
Life's been and gone,
Or I could be wrong...
What is the most you'd take?
When will the favourite day come?

Nine more lives will only be wasted by your pride,
So keep on.

Something's got to give.
Something's got to give.

If it's a collective sigh then what's this for?
(Cleansing breath now)
Keep thoughts of new meditations quiet and pure.

Something's got to give.
Something's got to give.
Something's got to give.

You know why,
You know why this walk feels new and better.
You know why,
You know why the unexpected calms these

Tired and burning eyes,
Tears are a welcome fire.
Clear all the old debris,
Wear all the shades of steel and glass,
Wake last,
Change the damaged side,
Sleep first and realise that

Nine more lives will only be wasted by your pride,
So keep on.

Something's got to give.
Something's got to give.
Something's got to give.

Something's got to give.
Something's got to give.
Something's got to give.
Something's got to give.
Track Name: Out Of My Hands
There's a trial
On your face,
With no sign of fading,
Jury's out for a while,
And today,
No ones cares how loud your pleading.

I don't know what it is but something's trying to take control.
I don't know why it is but this no longer feels like home.

Stop making fists for fighting ghosts.

It's out of my hands,
The precious time we could never get a hold of.
It's out of my hands,
The endless signs we let go of to break the trend.
It's out of my hands,
The loaded dice we could never make use of.
It's out of my hands,
And very much in yours.

Forget and forgive,
Fold back corners,
Never lose track of who you're with,
And don't let anything cursed come back.

I don't know what it is but something's trying to take control.
I don't know why it is but this no longer feels like home.

Stop making fists for fighting ghosts.
Stop making fists for fighting ghosts.

It's out of my hands,
The precious time we could never get a hold of.
It's out of my hands,
The endless signs we let go of to break the trend.
It's out of my hands,
The loaded dice we could never make use of.
It's out of my hands,
And very much in yours.

You're welcome to try and keep your grip,
Just don't complain when you fail to fit.

Out of my hands,
Out of my hands,
Once more.
Track Name: We Shape The Clouds
A different hotel room,
A near-identical view
Here in the mirror.

Backdrops change with the wind,
Absent of familiar foes.
Dangers refuse to be seen,
Only heard.

Several stories high,
Too many endings known.
The only certainty to believe,

There's no cloud cover,
There's no cloud cover in here.
No sign of another,
No trace of the summer in here,
But behind closed eyes,
It's all you'll ever see.

Nothing ordinary now.
Will anyone please show me how to finish this trick?

But sky is all I have.
Grounded is a well-made wish.
Complete comes and goes
At the seams.

Several storms crawl in,
Too many to choose from.
A fragile certainty
That you believe.

There's no cloud cover,
There's no cloud cover in here.
No sign of another,
No trace of the summer in here,
But behind closed eyes...

Several stories high,
Too many endings known.

There's no cloud cover,
There's no cloud cover in here.
No sign of another,
No trace of the summer in here.
There's no cloud cover,
There's no cloud cover in here.
No sign of another,
No trace of the summer in here,

But behind closed eyes,
It's all you ever see.
Track Name: Keepsake
Hundreds of days held inside,
Is it a keepsake or a lie?
The sense of betrayal heightened now.
Others that failed, take your bow.

Hundreds of days exhaled through,
Is it a keepsake carved by you?
Treasure the tears, not the grief.
Edit advice – keep it brief.

Heal it?
No.
Heal it?
No.

Hundreds of days become nights,
Is it a keepsake or a lie?
Track Name: Epinephrine
I am a detour with no aim,
A broken promise with no complaint.

Several years to hone a comeback,
Severed thoughts to brace the blows.
Until dawn I'll stay and hold you,
Keep you warm, it's all I know.
I am a poor guess formed too soon,
Beside you.

It's fight or flight, so choose your poison.
Keep it down and learn your lesson.
The endless lies, but which confession?
And don't make a move for no reason.

I am a canvas with no view.
A misplaced sketch torn in two.

Blooded walls become foundations,
Blackened eyes, the closest friend.
Weakened hearts repel companions,
Take the risk, it's getting late.
I am the letter that can't be sent
In the end.

It's fight or flight, so choose your poison.
Keep it down and learn your lesson.
The endless lies, but which confession?
And don't make a move for no reason.

We can hold on,
But it's fight or flight again.
We can hold on,
But it's fight or flight again.

It's fight or flight again.
It's fight or flight again.
It's fight or flight again.
It's fight or flight again,
In the end.

In the end.
Track Name: Circa 39
Acclimatise to cold goodbyes...

Fear the clearing now,
There're other ways to break down.

Fear the clearing now,
And,
There're other ways to break down.
Seething with no sound,
And,
There're other ways to be found.
Fear the clearing now,
And,
There're other ways to break down.
Seething with no sound,
And,
There're other ways to be found.
Fear the clearing now,
And,
There're other ways to break down.
Seething with no sound,
And,
There're other ways to be found.

Hero,
There's nothing here to make you suffer.
Hero,
There's nothing here to make you suffer.
Hero,
There's nothing here to make you suffer.
Hero,
There's nothing here to make you suffer.

There's nothing here to make you suffer.

Just wait it out because ten thousand times you've heard it will pass, soon,
Then watch how it conquers.
Send all the love you can in numbers then be present the next hour,
Strength holds not sutures.

Just wait it out because ten thousand times you've heard it will pass, soon,

Strength holds not sutures.

There's nothing here to make you suffer.
There's nothing here to make you suffer.

Hero,
There's nothing here to make you suffer.
Hero,

There's nothing here to make you suffer.
Track Name: The Same Place (feat. Anneke van Giersbergen)
The spider's web that greeted you.
Those tale of the river I won't disprove.
We let time be everyone's else's concern.
We edged closer to holding fingers.

If you still feel that summer,

Oh, meet me there,
Where you know,
Meet me there.

Sleeping leaves spell out your name.
Drenched right through, but still smiling.
No, don't look, ignore all the calls.
Missed glances that said it all.

If you still feel that summer,
If you still want our winter,

Oh, meet me there,
Where you know,
Meet me there.

Meet me there.
Meet me there.
Meet me there.
Meet me there.

Did you think you could stop it, control it,
And find a path to anyone, anything?
Did you think you could keep it, console it,
With all the fates still falling?

A part of me is always there,
Smiling and still,
At the same place.
Track Name: Cartographica
There is a hunter,
There is a feeling,
Buried in anger,
And built on an old template.

Planning a sequence,
Planning a meaning,
Secretly written,
But openly shared on old ground,
In this town.

No, no,
Find a way through,
To some kind of exit,
No, no,
Find a way through,
Let the compass not be gone,
Until it's done.

There is absentia,
And something calmer,
Carry the heartache,
Dragging your head behind.

Follow the old clues,
Follow the gleaming,
Not the distraction,
The constantly craves these uses,
And bruises.

No, no,
Find a way through,
To some kind of exit,
No, no,
Find a way through,
Let the compass not be gone,

Let all roads lead to you.
Let all roads lead to you.

Find a way.
Find a way.

Find a way,
Let all roads lead to you.
Find a way,
Let all roads lead to you.

Let the compass point to you.
Track Name: Diorama
Kill
For
What you're recalling to me,
The last chance to cling onto your
Tried
And
Tested, rejected retreats,
That you can begin to
Blame for all that has gone.

But timing's more than just the clocks and the calendars,
It's several misalignments merging,
Happy accidents that crash into
Your open point of view,
When the stage is up,
But set to play things out of sync,
Crescendo when the interval is on.

Trapped,
Shaped,
Changed by the art of belief,
In gratitude to these friends with
Lives
Made
Beautiful by things left unseen,
Reliving so many perfect messages.

But timing's more than just the clocks and the calendars,
It's several misalignments merging,
Happy accidents that crash into
Your open point of view,
When the stage is up,
But set to play things out of sync,
Crescendo when the interval is on,

But don' rest for too long,
Don't let it catch you out,
The lights will dim
But that's your cue to begin:
Embrace the furthest one,
The most complicated,
Picture the road and wait for the red light then go.

The diorama's begging you to go.
The diorama's begging you to go.
Track Name: Timelapsetiredsky
I remain
Staring out the sun.
This warmth,
Leaving,
Leaving here.

The city flickers in rain,
It knows the moon won't show.

I lie down,
Refusing to lose my place
One more time.

Redefined,
Realigned,
Me, simplified.

And the idea's strong,
And the fight is on,
But the rules are vague at best when you keep on testing me.

Nearly dawn,
A new game has begun.

But the light is old,
And it burns,
And it burns,
And it burns,
And it burns,
And it burns it all,
Burns it all away.

Redefined,
Realigned,
Me, simplified.

And the idea's strong,
And the fight is on,
But the rules are vague at best when you keep on testing me.

What is the answer becoming the more you stay?
Caught in the headlights of questions keeping
Us in disguises and mistakes.

What is the love becoming the more you say?
Cherish the seasons, oceans, mountains,
Heavy eyelids watch the sky descend.

And the idea's strong,
And the fight is on,
But the rules are vague at best when you keep on testing me.

What is the answer becoming the more you stay?
Caught in the headlights of questions keeping
Us in disguises and mistakes.

What is the love becoming the more you say?
Cherish the seasons, oceans, mountains,
Heavy eyelids,
Watch the sky descend.

Heavy eyelids,
Watch the sky descend.
Track Name: Resolutions
Details,
I alone deceive them,
There are too many pieces here,
Too many pieces here.

Rebuild the times that fall,
Pointlessly take control,
Sat here with so much
Old hate,
Slight praise,
And decay,
Ignore the former cries,

And feel,
Everything before.

Now,
I have woken up,
And walked to the edge,
Left it on the wire,
In pieces.
Now,
Not a quick resolve,
In the descent,
Keep it for a while,
In secret.

Greetings,
Nice to finally count them.
There are too many memories here,
Too many memories here.

But then they took them away,
And then they more than erased them,
Baby, please,
I'm here in the great unknown,
Stood knowing that you won't.
Dead ends and sirens,

Just feel,
Everything before.

Now,
I have woken up,
And walked to the edge,
Left it on the wire,
In pieces.
Now,
Not a quick resolve,
In the descent,
Keep it for a while,
In secret.

Only use the ones you needed,
There are too many pieces here.
There are too many pieces here.

And so they took them away,
And left only colours, fragments, years,
But I alone can make it,
Make it,
Make it.

I only can make it,
Make it,
Make it.
I only can make it,
Make it.

Sirens and dead ends,
Just feel,
Everything before,
Feel,
Everything before.

Now,
I have woken up,
And walked to the edge,
Left it on the wire,
In pieces.
Now,
Not a quick resolve,
In the descent,
Keep it for a while,
In secret.

Not a quick resolve.
Not a quick resolve.
Not a quick resolve.
