Exit 02:18

Ghost 05:38
All my orchids now pull me away Carry the weight Follow wild flowers, float into light Fill in the sky In the quickness I am defined, grasping for life Boring deeply into my mind Now I see the ghosts They have outgrown me They are deserted Ribbon swing, wrapped, bundled leaves Beg me to rest Beg me to stay In the courage I left behind you are alive In the forage I couldn’t find you are designed To blur the white to black and back To reach up and touch To know the truth and never look back Running towards you with a hole in my head I can see much clearer now I’m the one leaving It was my fate just to carry you in I can see much clearer now But I’ll never understand
3.
Second Skin 04:43
Climb, and we all were swans In the autumn wild We become entwined Candlelight always in her eyes Candlelight always in her skies Glide, and we’re all aligned And I fall behind To behold your flight Candlelight always in her eyes Candlelight always in her skies
4.
Reflection 04:20
My peace is watching on And I come often to dream of falling My hate is falling off And I breathe it in and breathe it out My home is all I’ve got And I fall often to keep on falling My only harbored light is the beauty that lives On and on
5.
Farewell 04:03
All enhoused in my hand All the air on the earth I covered the spread of the land Best I could On my way before I fall Breaking my heart on every inch of it Breaking my heart This is how we fall in
6.
Stillness 04:33
My beliefs, slowly out of sync inside of my hand At my age I wring my body out just to forget If I ever was, I’ve lived enough Scattered myself Waited on more And I forgive all my other fights I was a better man once But I moved on You and I We are this instant Tear the rest down Down to the ground We can wait We can watch it happen Or feel it all now If I ever was, I’ve lived enough Scattered myself Waited on more And I forgive all my other fights I was a better man once But I moved on But I moved on
7.
Young Guns 04:46
The only sun swimming in to me I am in love with you here I am endless swell The coldest touch carries us outward We are in awe of this drift We are a glowing blend Drip on a palm Catching it all when the fall ends it You were in shimmering light You were my only guide Your love, hold it in your chest Fold it in your arms Never end Your love, hold it in your chest Fold it in your arms And lead me in to you
8.
Innocent 02:35
We look down on ourselves Holding on to anyone we can Pushing through the fallen rock Leaving home Peeling off the second skin The innocence We are never honest All that I’m discovering Right beside me We were only seventeen We knew Breaking down the barriers Leaving home Peeling off the second skin The innocence We are never honest We are never honest We are never honest
9.
Wake 07:25
When I was younger I lost my faith You told me, “Brother, you’ll know when you’re my age” And even though that day has come And I still do not You are still my hope My pushing off You are here Arms across I cannot bear to see my father This is not fair I’m not at peace But I clearly see what needs to be done When we’re breathless When the love hits We’re all the same
