about

Everything comes to an end
and beyond the last note
of the last measure
something lingers.
The fire burns out with ashes hanging in the air.

There is absence and an open wound.
There is wanting to point the finger.
There is tastelessness and regret.

They cover our eyes and bend our backs
and we grieve -
for these things we cannot carry.

Track Name: Honest (Gravity)
answer to who we are
i'll be honest
i don't want it - not today
you've got yourself to blame
for all this falling down upon it

hang your head
there's all this gravity to blame

thoughts only get so far
before they look more like you wanted
and rivers will turn to rain
for all this falling down upon it

hang your head
there's all this gravity to blame
Track Name: The Truth Is (I'm Tired)
How can you know who you are after the fire is clear?
I have been wasting my time living inside of my fear.

And the truth is I'm tired of keeping myself awake.
Love was a fire that kept all the lies at bay.
If I was fine I wouldn't feel this weay.
The truth is I'm tired. I'm tired.

You have been calling my name and pulling my eyes to the light;
I am the one who is scared of carrying on with this fight.

And the truth is I'm tired of keeping myself awake.
Love was a fire that kept all the lies at bay.
If I was fine, I wouldn't feel this way.
The truth is I'm tired. I'm tired.

Time slips away and the distance between us has grown.
I have been running in circles to find my way home.
Track Name: The Distance Knows Your Name
your words were in my pocket
your smile was in my ear.
oh, we are always waiting and I am drunk with fear

there is a weight between my fingers
and the darkness knows your name
oh I hold myself too tightly
and the blind man is to blame

maybe there is never an end to fear
maybe there is only a fire inside my head
maybe i'm beginning to disappear
maybe there is only a fire inside my head

how do we sleep when we are not alone
where do we lay our heads in the light of day
how am I gonna take your hand
when I can't feel it anymore than yesterday

how am I gonna take your hand when I can't feel it anymore
maybe I'll never get back to you
