Track Name: Push It Away
Push it away, keep it out of your head
That’s what you told yourself over and over again
But the thought kept spreading
Like terminal cancer, you couldn’t get over it

All you see
Is a perfect reflection of your imperfection
And a theme that keeps recurring (over again, over again)
Unavoidable failure that’s endlessly pending your arrival

So you abandon what you know
Just turn away and go

Fear won’t leave you alone
Track Name: Liquid Clock
March on, march on
Just hold on to that liquid clock
Forget, forget
Those things you said, it won’t be long
March on, march on
Just hold on to that liquid clock
Forget, forget
Those things you said, it won’t be long

The sun falls to the sea
As it rises to each day
Same light, same dark, same in between
There is no other way

It was not your fault
It was not your fault

March on, march on
Just hold on to that liquid clock
Forget, Forget
Those things you said, it won’t be long
March on, march on
Just hold on to that liquid clock
Forget, Forget
Those things you said, it won’t be long

The darkness takes and takes away
You never understood
The good it carried with
All you saw was the death of another day

It was not your fault
It was not your fault
Track Name: Nowhere
We sat and watched the tide
Reflecting what was left of the light
We sat and watched the tide
But it vanished from your sight

Burn.
Burn the ship, there is no comfort in it
It’s only headed back to nowhere
All you’ll find are the remnants of a shattered life
That you’d rather not remember

You gave yourself to them till you had nothing left
In return, they made promises
As empty as the space in your chest
A chance to start over just to fuck it up again
Track Name: Left Behind
The tempest crept up on us
Like a ghost who’d angrily returned
To finish what he’d started years ago
It tore through every city
Up the east coast of the country
Leaving once opulent landscapes in pure ruin

How can we move on after this?
Who will rebuild what we have lost?
There’s nothing left but sadness here
And none of this will disappear

Every oak has been uprooted
Maybe they all just stood too rigid
To withstand the mighty winds
If they had just looked to the willow
Seen it bowing in the breeze
They might have learned that all they needed
Was to just let go

And all of this time, it’s been that simple
Even with the damage done
A hope stays planted firmly in the ground
It knew the storm was coming
It had to know that change was near
It had to know . . . It had to know . . .

If you let the past
Own everything that’s present
And the paradigm controls
Every move you make
You’ll be left behind
And left for dead

Left behind; left for dead
Track Name: Fall Apart
The words just won’t come out
Stifled and choked at every turn
Each morbid thought begets the next
I’m certain they will drown
Before they ever reach the tip of my tongue
To breach the surface for air
So what’s the point now?

I watched the life drain from your face
Color gone, black and white, the cold hard truth
Lost in a dream you were raised to believe
But I’m just as lost as you

The more you talk, the less I have to say
The more you talk, the less I have to say

Misery; retribution
Fall apart, just fall apart

There is nothing left here for us
But the emptiness inside our chests

The more you talk, the less I have to say
The more you talk, the less I have to say
