Track Name: Dirty
I woke up
lost in the wood
To move real slow
escape the great unknown and start it all over again
And you spoke all night
of life and death, so place your hands up on the stones
in the water
I grew twice as tall and told you all that I had done

Well you found me
Getting dirty
Please believe me
Well you lost me
In a daydream
Now you're all I see

I gave you up
don't bleed my name
When you run out of luck
sing a sleepers song and fold your failures in the flame
You jagged one!
Accept it all at once and let the liars take the blame
give me patience
Let the fire burn black and peter out into the rain

Well you found me
Getting dirty
Please believe me
Well you lost me
In a daydream
Now you're all I see

I know you're all that I've got
so don't wake up, just sleep it off
I climbed that marble mountain
just to reach the top, so don't wake up

Well you found me
Getting dirty
Please believe me
Well you lost me
In a daydream
Now you're all I see
Track Name: Setting Sun
The morning starts to bleed
into that setting sun
I was safe and clean
there was nothing wrong
that I could see
and next to me
the color green...
painted.

The ocean parts for me!
Time and space be gone!
I was everything
and there was nothing wrong,
but I could leave
next to me
the color green...
faded
Track Name: Bad Wolf
I'm a bad wolf
It's a full moon
I've been hiding in my bedroom
I've got old scars
I've got new wounds
I've been howling until I turn blue

But you're better off running scared
I'll find you in the burnt, black air
and leave you there
I saw you in your red coat, heading south
I can almost taste you in my mouth
right about now

I'm a dead dog
I'm an old fool
I get anxious when I'm around you
Cause it won't work
I'll devour you
Till it's over and I've lost you

But see you're better off running scared
I'll find you in the burnt black air
and leave you there
Oh, I saw you in your red coat, heading south
I can almost taste you in my mouth
right about now
Track Name: Fragile Bones
I felt a cold wind blow through my fragile bones
Their pulse and pigment- crystal, kaleidoscope
I'm feeling angry for no reason

I dug a deep trench to put my body in
So when I've used it, it's purpose redirects
A little darker than I am used to

But you see, I had no choice
Cause I have to
And I'm supposed to let it go

I sought a lost cause, a catastrophic mess
It's force and friction left me with better sense
Some kind of monster I beckon back to

I let my wolf's mouth fill up with liar's blood
My teeth will fall out, straight past my silver tongue
I do not believe in what I can't see

But you see, I had no choice
Cause I have to
And I'm supposed to let it go
Track Name: Older Oak
The older oak that bore your brother's tree house broke
to a billion bits
You bound the wood and built a boat
for troubled water voyages
But you are not the wind in my sails!
And I am but the coming storm
so you've been warned

Go and I will follow down
Leave and I won't make a sound

I found the strength to stop
and spread the ashes of my former self
Misled belief in 'I', it seems that everyone
is me as well
But I am also moon and mountain!
And all the parts of you, I can't seem to forget
and that solipsistic sunset

Go and I will follow down
Leave and I won't make a sound

Fear is all that stands in my way
No I won't be afraid, won't be afraid
Tell me all that you need to say
Your oceans a lie;
my blue deep escape
Track Name: Bastard Son
When I die
what if I don't want the afterlife?
What if I would rather fade away
than spend another day?
And if I live
never to outlast the bastard son
I could see myself just giving up
That's it, I've had enough

Cause I can't breathe
And I can't sleep
And I can't leave, no I can't leave

And when I drive
sometimes I think that I could crash my car
Careening off the guard rails to the floor
It wouldn't be that hard
But when I sing
sometimes I think you'll hear me through the trees
and follow my voice home so easily
but you don't remember me
I was just your shadow

But I can't breathe
And I can't sleep
And I can't leave, no I can't leave

I don't know what to do with me no more
I don't know what to do with me
I don't think I could love no one no more
I don't think no on could love me
Track Name: Wounded King
Oh, how far would you go?
Break your flesh on the stones,
these blistered hands
I'd begged and I'd plead
just to be free, blessed and sad
A crown once you had known,
now the remnants are ghosts
haunting my eyes

Oh Great Forgotten King!
What does it mean to me?
You speak for everything
Great Beyond, Greatening Divide

And Oh Great Begotten King!
Sits at his thrown
Deliver his scepter upon us
the growing unknown

And oh, where have you gone?
Are you lost in the fog,
desperate for air?
And I see all I see,
but it's moments from me
just at a grasp
Crawl out of the dark
where we drew on the walls
painted our cave
And hope, it hides in the sand
the beginning of Man
made out of clay

Oh Great Forgotten King!
What does it mean to be?
Bleeding and needing I nodded off,
waving goodbye
And Oh Great Abysmal King!
Sits all alone
his city and suitors are all gone, a trembling bone
Oh Grand Forgotten King!
I'm still alive!
Do you remember me?
Do you or don't you decide?
Oh Great Begotten King!
Wisdom you're whispering
waterfalls off of my tongue and my ears and my eyes

My eyes love, my eyes
