Track Name: This Gentle Breeze
This gentle breeze is bringing back memories of who I once was, so long ago before our fall. So strange to feel so foreign to this life I built before me and you, so long ago before our fall. As time goes by, I start to see just how you really treated me, so long ago before our fall. I invested in a person I found out was nothing but a pack of lies, so long ago before our fall. What was it all for? The calm before the storm. It caused us to transform. I gave it all, I gave it all, I gave it all for what?
Track Name: The Sound
Listen to the sound of the running water. Let it calm you, take you deeper now. You needn't worry not tonight, because everything will be alright. Listen to the sound of the beating heart: the subtle stop, the sudden start. You needn't worry not tonight, because everything will be alright. The love we had was not the cost. It may be hard, but isn't lost. So close your eyes and take a breath, and I'll be there with you. Listen to the sound of my slowed breathing. My love is here but life is fleeting. You needn't worry not tonight, because everything will be alright. The love we had was not the cost. It may be hard but isn't lost. So close your eyes and take a breath, and I'll be there with you.
Track Name: Great Divide
A heathen's appetite tells him when it's time to sin. I was getting hungry, I needed skin on skin. I know you thought we had more. I know you thought we'd make it. It could never work out, because I didn't give a shit. You were just a piece of meat to me to be tasted only once, then one last heave to expel the feelings you left inside. There's nothing between you and me, the great divide. So go back home and hide out, cry yourself to sleep. I am just a monster, and you are so naive. You were just a piece of meat to me to be tasted only once, then one last heave to expel the feelings you left inside. There's nothing between you and me, the great divide.
Track Name: Say Goodbye
The ship has sailed, it's left the harbor. Don't be fooled, it couldn't be much harder to leave this life behind, and forever say goodbye. We spent so long chasing sodom, but all we got were bigger problems. Now we're in a fight just to stay alive. I'll go away so you can stay, I'll hide away. I'll go away so you can stay, I'll hide away. The ship has sailed, it's left the harbor. Don't be fooled, it couldn't be much harder to leave this life behind, and forever say goodbye. I'll go away so you can stay, I'll hide away. I'll go away so you can stay, I'll hide away.
Track Name: Nothing Feels the Same
Our love was a tornado destroying half the town; we'd leave nothing standing. Now it's just gone and nothing feels the same, but life continues anyway. Mending fences. Mending fences. Now it's time to rebuild the things that we've destroyed and help those we have wounded. So let's call a truce and put aside our angst and do what really matters. Mending fences. Mending fences.
Track Name: Truth Lies
The fog is lifting off the face of the sea. For the first time I see what things truly are. Truth lies. You cry. I try to understand. Now the blanket you've woven with your lies and deceit is unraveling quickly and you need to make your retreat. Truth lies. You Cry. I try to understand.
Track Name: Leaving Here Alone
What do you want me to say when there's no talking? What do you want me to feel when the love stops coming? How do you want me to act when the hearts are breaking? You know, you know. What do you want me to trust when you just keep lying? Why do you want to commit to a lifetime of crying? Why can't we just admit that our love now is dying? You know, You know. I know, I know. We're approaching our demise. You convince yourself we're fine. As we go through this you know, you are leaving here alone. I'm walking away, walking away 'cause I don't need you. I'm running away, running away 'cause I don't love you.
