Track Name: Cornelia
Are you waiting to find yourself?
Does happenstance keeps you from your dreams?
You spent your time drunk in hallways
Waiting for

Hey, where are you from
When did you start,
Coming to the city,
Coming to the city.
Show me what the stripes are holding
Stars aren’t shining now its folded

I guess not so long,
Came with some friends,
They love it.
Tell me you’re not tired and broken
That your words have not been spoken yet

Are you waiting to find yourself?
Does happenstance keep you from your dreams?
Courage to conquer your heart
Waiting for,
That fast release
The city sleeps,
You know you’ve seen it
Running faster, chasing for a new and brighter day
Never let go
Just bide your time
You know you have it
Grin and bear it , own it
Now and take their breath away


Tried to pull some teeth,
From straws at you feet,
But they wouldn’t move,

When will we meet again,
Let’s not pretend,
You’ll never move.

Are you waiting to find yourself?
Does happenstance keep you from your dreams?
Courage to conquer your heart
Waiting for,
That fast release
The city sleeps,
You know you’ve seen it
Running faster, chasing for a new and brighter day
Never let go
Just bide your time
You know you have it
Grin and bear it , own it
Now and take their breath away

And though it all will pass,
The world still turns.
Track Name: 99
Say my name,
Tell me twice,
Pull my hair,
Rip my clothes,
I don’t know,
If I should,

Batten hatches,
‘For’ the storm,
Give me candles,
Keep me warm,
I don’t know,
If I should.

Time to go,
Take the train,
Sliding hands,
Leave residue,

88 99 88 99

Looking back,
Days are gone,
Years have passed,
Be here, with me
Problems, Problems, Problems
Problems, Problems, Problems

Track Name: Breath
Moon drawing your energy,
Days start, become clear again,
Waves pulling depth forcefully,
Show me a wolf howling at time’s repeat.

Truth comes from different sides,
Tales spin me left to right,
Cold hands keep your blood vessels tight,
Eyes open pale and bright.

Let it flow naturally,
Shaping yourself easily
Feel the ink that’s at your pulse
See the sparkle in the sky.

Praying to renew,
Painting over rust,
Winter’s left you dull,
Burdened listless troubadour,
Shadows laying light,
Cherry blossom glow,

You’ve been left behind.
(You don’t have to save me)

Chivalry belongs
Symptoms from the bombing
Scorn filled days, hopeless revival
Heart throbs with longing from the bottom

Am I free? In my one mind?
Is there truth in any action
Trying to capture knots of time,
Am I me?

Will I grow?
A ripened pear?
My tissue sags beyond repair,
I yearn for earth,
And cobblestone
The neighbourhood I’ve always known
I’d take it over avenues with one direction
Monotone, Monotone, Modern rome
Sun vacations,
Separate homes,
Sigh escapes, the breath intones,
I’m pixelated and so alone,
Like scattered smoke and whitened coal
If I forget please resurrect me.

Take a risk
A leap of faith
A fated leap
Hold my chalice to the last
Enhance me in this vast expanse

Body, mind
Please be kind
Allow this vessel pass
Before
Body, mind
Please be kind
Allow this vessel pass
Before it shatters
Track Name: Release
Have you ever had so many doubts?
Have you ever had this many doubts?
I know we won’t find our way back home.
But I know I’ve never had this many doubts.

I was just a boy,
A boy devoid of all.
Ignoring all the distant, foreign voices fill the hall.
Our midnight steeped in youth.
Shallow unpaid truths.
The smarter echoes, bounced from walls that,
Only spoke to you.

I know we won’t find our way back home.

Sleep we hope to dream,
Of faded memories,
I once called you my loved one,
You’re the only one I’d need.
And as it fell behind,
So shaky ill defined,
You said- Eyes were made for seeing,
But the blind won’t seek the blind.

I know we won’t find our way back home.
Have you ever had so many doubts?

Your energy is swirling spiraling continuation through the clouds.
You never thought they’d clear surpass them,
Every day you stayed alive you drowned,

Don’t even breath while we sleep tonight

The colder water, coming closer,
All delighted lies you spun surround,
And though the foggy interest lay in days you hoped you’d somehow come around.

I wish someone else would catch me don’t even,
Don’t even breath while we sleep tonight.
