Track Name: Oracle
By the light
Was shown for I
A vision crept
Into my mind

I've seen the end
I've shed a tear
I cannot hide
Inside my fear

So I'll pray

Looking from behind my eyes
I've gotta feel
We're looking at the end

Null and void
Tears I've cried
For you

Null and void
I'll pray
Track Name: Not Like You
The news came today
We're lost
No pause for dismay
We're lost

Elegy unsung
You know I'll miss you
When we're done

The panic melted away
And I was lost
Cause I was not like you

We're spinning away
At what cost
And some here must stay
The king's pawns

But my will must come
And so I'll miss you
When we're done
Track Name: Gracefully You Fall
Wait
Wait to find
Hide
Keep them blind
Sheets of fog
Insulate my head
Shelter me
From converging dread

Something else that's going on
Oh, but nothings wrong
How could it ever be?
Something else inside your head
Just wait until it's dead
Maybe you'll fall gracefully

Grace
See me through
Trust
In what I do
Sheets of fog
Insulate my head
Shelter me
From converging dread

Between these broken lines
I'm dying out loud
And when the peaks level out
There's nothing left
I hope this hollow smile
Is filling you up
Cause it's painted with love
And it's for you
Track Name: Behind The Veil
Save
The chance for me
Brave?
So low

So low...

Hold me in solitude
Save me from fears
I never knew

With no protest from me
Guide me down
Seal my fate for me
And all without a word

So low...

Fruitless harvest
Wasted away
Gleaning, procuring
Wasted away

Saved me from myself
Just you, no one else
You took my chance away

Saved me from myself
Just you, no one else
You took my life away

Saved?
No chance for me
Brave?
So low

So low...
Track Name: Bloom
A foot through the portal and on to the other side
They said this would ease the tide
I wish I could stay

Dreaming in pictures of days I would hate to come
They told me to be the one
To keep them away

So as you may slumber
So shall you bloom

Frozen in stasis and drifting at laser speed
At least that's how it seems to me
I wish you could stay

The big picture holding me captive with days to come
I'm sorry it's not the one
That we wished away

So as you may slumber
So shall you bloom

When I went away
Was there a hum about?
I wish you could show me how it was

When I went away
Was there a hum about?
I wish you could show me now

A song for the Earth
The devotion eludes
The wake will will give birth
I just hope it's the truth
Track Name: Haze
Sing to the Earth
I'll pray

Oh, there's something inside of you wishing...

Hush now
And be lost
You're under the haze
