Track Name: Afterthoughts
An afterthought... white noise and the temperature of life
I'm all hollowed out… just wave and refraction
I catch myself staring off into grey distances
This world has turned haunted and ashen

I can feel my heart strain, connecting all the love and pain of recent years
In a moment of raw fear, I unravel the cause of every heartbeat's start and pause

Wake up
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I tried
Enveloped in your gold, I've started to fall through myself
I'm dying... dying
Track Name: Satellites
I tore down all my dreams today,
locked in your embrace I cried,
And thought of all the years we've lost.

I said that I'd be true, I know
But nothing true is true for evermore
In sadness dreams are lost

And time cuts time, feeding the shadows on the wall.
We break all tomorrows as we fall,
And now I'm feeling the sorrow alone
Still counting the satellite lights.

You're against the wall and I can feel your emptiness and
All the sadness strip away your hope for better things to come.
It's a miracle to me, the way we were, the way we could be.
We were something real.

Oh burry your fears deep into the ground and let them rot.
Touch me, hold my hand, I mean it, let's make sure that this counts.
We could be real
We could be real

Let's throw off all those second skins and wake up raw and open
Let everything we've given up remain asleep and frozen
We could be real
We could be real
Track Name: Hurt
Round, round, round about
I see you at the edges of my dreams
With gun black eyes

I'm fraying at the seams
With no atomic weight left to hold on
Onto our love

I tried everything I could to make you hurt
To make you understand
To make it clear

I tried everything I could to make you suffer
To make you understand
That I don't care
I just don't care

Round, round, round about
Twisting tired thoughts into the night
We'd talk about

How our love was always stronger
How transitory problems only seemed
Perpetual

Round, round, round about
Twisting our history into lies
To suit one night

A rigid selfishness
My only means to rescue my future
From our past

I tried everything I could to make you suffer
To make you understand
To make it clear

I tried everything I could to make you hurt
To make you understand
That I don't care

I tried everything I could to make you suffer
To make you understand
To make you care

I tried everything I could to make you hurt
To make you understand
To make you care
To make you care...

To make you hurt
To make you care
I just don't care...

To make you hurt
To make you care...
To make you care...

I tried everything...
Track Name: Swords
Summer time, it made me fall
In love with you again
But our days bred cold nights

Your prudish chill, your abstinent drill
I'm sick of your beliefs
Time for us to grow up

We're made for more than this
And you're in my way

Our sharp decline in passionate lust
Tells all there is to tell
It's puritan and juvenile

Sooner or later we'll fall out of love
And what do we do then?
Just suck it up and work it out?

We're made for more than this...
You're in my way

I need to be loved by someone else
More sexual than you
A kindred heart's just not good enough

I know this is cruel but cruelty is
A part of what we are
So might as well draw swords now

We're made for more than this...
You're in my way
Track Name: In Perfect Blooms of Color
I’m lying here,
Obsessing over you.

Your socks pulled knee-high and tight,

Your skin glistening and wet.

The ardor of unsteadied hands,

The wasteful innocence of youth,

Our wistful advances and retreats,

And your tenderly whispered approach…

You are coming too soon…

And I think of you all the time

In perfect blooms of color,

Refracting in abstract collage

And I miss you, and I miss my own life.
Track Name: Starash
All truth and lies
Are just starash and stardust
Shattered dreams
Are built from the same things as love

It's conceited to think
Life could be as easy to mend
As it was easy to break

You were never in love
We were never in love

But there's peace in despair and isolation -
When nothing is possible, everything's permissable
Terrible things happen to those who wait
For life to start another day

You were never in love
You were never in love
You were never in love
You were oh...

Starash, forever after, to stardust. This is all love is.
Starash, forever after, to stardust. This is all we are.
Starash, forever after, to stardust. This is all love is.
Starash, forever after, to stardust. This is all we are.
