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

And 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
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
'cause everything will be alright

Listen to the sound of the beating heart
the subtle stop, the sudden start
you needn't worry, not tonight
'cause 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
cause everything will be alright
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
but it could never work out
'cause 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
'cause I am just a monster
and you are so naive
Track Name: Say Goodbye
The ship has sailed,
it's left the harbor
but 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
