I forget where i was Floating like deadwood lit by moon Lit by moon There was a voice whispering inside “It’s time. It’s time.” Like a slow fuse that I watched burn from then until now It follows me down It follows me down It will choose you Like it chose me And turn to a bead of sinking light And light all of the voids behind
2.
I waded out too far, I held my breath for too long, And of that second kingdom will I sing. With your face carved into a tree, I was an afterthought drifting out to sea. I'm writing to the sound of your voice, How long until you come back to me? Low down, deeper and deeper, There are echoes of that song. Never let me go, I could have been more for you. Low down, deeper and deeper, There are echoes of that song. Never let me go, I could have been more for you.

Stars, all I can see is stars And beams of light, side by side, One: one One: one Stretched beyond, and on. Look down Look down on me Line the walls with words and write them back to me Give your voice another chance send it to the stars for me Waves upon waves and blues upon greens All I can see is stars upon the sea of tranquility I’m lost in the lines, I’m lost between gridlines And somewhere else; I’m lost in the space Like a trails running cold and getting further away Waves upon waves and blues upon greens

Saving the best; last is always most loved 
 A year in the wilderness, with unspoken words all over my arms I've been carrying your shadow; I’ve been offering a truce
 I can feel your heels digging in
 Do you feel like you're at home? I was slowing down my heartbeat, before it could collapse
 I spent a year in the wilderness living between the cracks
 That opened beneath the world under our feet
 I only want to hear you sing; sing songs for me I've been carrying your shadow; I've been offering a truce
 I can feel your heels digging in
 Do you feel like you're at home?
6.
How far would you go to disappear? Like a snowflake melting on my lips You slipped between my fingers And dragged your feet across an ocean bed Take the pennies from your eyes Take the pennies from your eyes and rain them on me

The Mountain 03:27
I broke through the treeline running The break of branches all covered in rain I cut my feet again Was I not allowed to wait? She poured herself down my throat Thick like clotting blood I let the woodlife crawl over me And eat me from the outside and in

57 Mnemosyne 04:43
Trials of love and lost abandon I didn't come here to be forgiven I grew a vein outwards and around you And carried your shadow for years and years A last longing look then push back into vacuum And leave lasting sparks behind fading lines

For we were animals and you were the hunter But time and time again we were lost But where else to be forgotten and reborn Than in this new found land
13.
Try the road or let it go What are the last words you heard? Trying not to break away Trying not to break away And I don't want to hear the silence And I can't wait to start again Trying not to break away Trying not to break away
