Track Name: Winter Fear
the day slips away, it reaches its close
i watch as my crooked hands unfold
now i'm awake, my eyes sparkle red
i watch as my good friends lose their heads

is it all downhill from here?
does my happiness dissipate with years?
so i'll close my eyes as i descend
when i know that i'm close to the end
and my winter fear is creeping back again

looking around i'm not in my hometown
i'll never go back to the earth in that cold car again
and it's strange that i find that cold look in your eye
the light there has suddenly died, and the two black holes arrive

is it all downhill from here?
does my happiness dissipate with years?
so i'll close my eyes as i descend
when i know that i'm close to the end
and my winter fear is creeping back again

i'm a simple boy, with simple needs, i let the tide blow me over
i'm simple child, with simple needs, i can't wait till i grow older
i'm a dying man, with endless needs, i put a hole inside my mind
cause now i look for simple things, they're just so hard to find
Track Name: I Found a Light
lately i find there's a black hole in my mind
heart broken and my eyes half blind
show me a sign

follow me down where the river bends i'm found
heart working overtime
when you fall i get high

i've lost my mind
floating through the day
it's wasting me away
i found a light
and it won't be long till i'm alright

i'll get around to it one of these days i will erase you
and the memories you made
they take up space in my brain

i'd be okay if i was suddenly swept away
wiped from the face of the earth for a day
i'm sick of this place

climbing through the light, i think i've lost my sense of time
i can see your face above the city as i climb
did you ever think to leave me more than scraps behind?

i've lost my mind
floating through the day
it's wasting me away
i found a light
and it won't be long till i'm alright

i've lost my mind
floating through the day
it's wasting me away
i found a light
Track Name: Last Train Home
did i disappoint you?
what was that you tried to say?
don't let this destroy you
don't let your faith decay

drifting in and out of sleep
and out of time
what would i be without you?

riding on this lonesome train
into the night
and fade away
but i won't feel ashamed

did i disappoint you?
are you falling out from grace?
waking up to find that everything has changed
and i'm sorry that i doubted you

riding on this lonesome train
into the night
and fade away
but i won't feel ashamed
Track Name: Floating on a Dream
motion yearns for your movement
working hands stuck at the seams
fingertips itching with the want
to build what i see

weak man, manifests ego
fooling himself he'll succeed
in a man through the heart we are
the life of a seed

grown up, the forest of beings i will handle
but i won't
cut loose, slowly be lost in the maelstrom
the grey glow

a strong wind blows and time burns away
calloused hands challenged by the depth
the depth of the freed

and i'm floating on a dream
that's so much closer than it seems
i am two ragged claws on the floor of a silent sea
and i'm stuck where i am standing
Track Name: Slow Motion
wading through the dirty water
didn't know what path to take
his face looked back in bitter anger
all in an offhand way

i'm moving in slow motion
and i didn't mean to harm you again
i'm screaming into silence again
i didn't mean to harm you
i only meant to please you

take my hand call me a stranger
i was raised in an offhand way
his face looked back in sweet acceptance
today is a perfect day

i'm moving in slow motion
and i didn't mean to harm you again
i'm screaming into silence again
i didn't mean to harm you
i only meant to please you
