Track Name: The Only Realm You know
Everything below me seems to wilt beneath these shoes I'm wearing thin.
And maybe one day we'll begin again and make amends before we lose her.
Finding something I can hold to make my soul just sail like a golden boat.
Cuz everything around me seems to float around so easily but, no, not me.
Hoping, waiting, for something sacred.
Once upon a time I had a dream inside this jaded head of mine.
I thought it'd be there till the end of time; all mine; sublime.
Deep inside your head's a portal to another dimension.
Find the key and feel yourself fade in, fade out.
And soon you'll see why all must be.
Track Name: Akira
Every day's so blue.
Wish that I could be like you.
And let myself unglue.
Living life so violently.
How do you keep so cool?
Living with your golden rules.
A tempest in tomb.
Living life so quietly.
My pain, disdain, I've made it all this way.
And I can learn from my mistakes until I'm in my grave.
I'd admit my faults.
Turn them into grains of salt.
To spill and watch them fall.
Luck will not decide it all.
I'm listening for the call.
My pain, disdain, I've made it all this way.
And I can learn from my mistakes until I'm in my grave.
Track Name: Depressionado
I don't even want to know the way that they hurt me.
Easy finding patterns everywhere but my memory.
Each and every day, in every way they desert me.
Why must this lapsing be?
Trapped inside a haze each day.
Rise in bed and float away.
Pacified I see the greed in me.
Try to wrap my mind around the feelings I'm missing.
Numb to everything besides the lips that I'm kissing.
Each and every day I learn a valuable lesson I cannot clearly see.
Trapped inside a haze each day.
Rise in bed and float away.
Pacified I see the greed in me.
Track Name: Gloom
Any bit of joy that floats through my mind flies away, flies away.
Any bit of joy I try to define just won't stay, just won't stay.
It hit me like a train one day, and now it just won't go away.
I'm waiting for the moment I feel just okay.
And this pain, is sickening.
And this life, unending strife.
And this shell, a living hell.
And these words, my only cure.
Any bit of joy that floats through my mind flies away, flies away.
Any bit of joy I try to define just won't stay, just won't stay.
I tried to find my way around, and put my feet on solid ground.
It's heart and soul and comfort I just have not found.
And this pain, is sickening.
And this life, unending strife.
And this shell, a living hell.
And these words, my only cure.
Track Name: JSM (Jade Stone Mask)
Can't believe the words repeating in your head.
Can't believe the way you'd rather die instead.
Can't relieve the cloud that's hanging over you.
Can't relieve the misery that runs all through.
But it's not over until it's over.
Just mull it over, over and over.
The silver lining, somewhere is shining.
The sun is rising every day just for you.
You try to put the pieces neatly in their place.
But a piece or two at some time were erased.
You hold your head up now higher than before.
It don't mean much when all of you is on the floor.
But it's not over until it's over.
Just mull it over, over and over.
The silver lining, somewhere is shining.
The sun is rising every day just for you.
You can't believe the words repeating in your head and you can't wake up.
Track Name: Restless Limb
Wake up in the dark.
Don't wanna be like the rest.
Shattered heart and shattered wrist.
You just couldn't resist.
Listening to mother earth.
Feel the wave of a new birth.
Setting in to a better space.
Senses you could not erase.
I live it every single day.
Get high on every word they say.
I can't believe I got so down.
Riding on the high.
A maladjustment to life.
Sensory receptors lie.
But I'll rewire with time.
Force yourself awake and breath.
Never let your spirit leave.
Let it out in tears and shame.
Nobody else is left to blame.
I live it every single day.
Get high on every word they say.
I can't believe I got so down.
Track Name: White Lite
Looking on the bright side.
But I find it blinding.
Easy for me to hide.
Turn my outside right in.
Can you see me now?
With my face made of plaster.
So afraid to bow.
Cannot reveal my soul.
I can't help but wonder life within another.
Tired of the paces.
Tired of my body.
Tired of existence.
Putting shackles on me.
Do you hear me now?
Is my voice getting louder?
Should I scream and shout?
Should I disrupt it all?
I can't help but wonder life within another.
I can't help but wonder life within another.
I can't help but wonder life within another.
I can't help but wonder life within another.
Track Name: My Winter Womb
I feel this woman, I know her shape.
My brittle bones are about to break.
A bitter longing for better days.
To know my visage, to feel my face.
Need a face I recognize.
End the flight from my own eyes.
My mind a prison I can't escape.
My skin unchanging, I cannot wait.
Cocoon my body in some warm place.
Let forth a human renewed and brave.
Need a face I recognize.
End the flight from my own eyes.
