Track Name: fear of the dark/minus you/feel nothing for now on
You're in there somewhere, underneath it all...
I saw a light come on out of the dark
I'm still waiting where you told me to

As if you were no one
as if you never existed at all
I could be no one too

We're all haunted, we've all seen a ghost or two
and when we close our eyes, we're haunted there too
follows me around to this day

As if you were no one
as if you never existed at all
I could be no one too

I won't be lost here out in this fog
I will find my way back somehow
We're not all born afraid of the dark

As if you were no one
as if you never existed at all
I could be no one...

-----

A vision of the future minus you
color me envy, black and blue
Raggedy Ann doll thread worn thin
stitch me up, patch me up, make me whole again

Take me to the attic or take me to the grave
tuck me in the basement with souvenirs you saved
take me where you want me still, take me where you don't
lift me up, lift me up, take me back home

I've grown so weary, so tired, so frail
living this life, what freshest hell
nightmares when the sun is out and daydream all night
hold me up, pick me out, hold me in the light

I could write a sonnet or paint your portrait
tell you what you mean to me before I forget
I could climb a mountain just to watch the sunset
but I don't do any of these things for you

----

I don't want to feel
I don't want to feel
I don't want to feel
anything, anytime, anymore, at all...

Track Name: where all lines merge
i've been a farmer, a soldier, a thief, and a working stiff
i've been an actor, a brother, a wolf on the ridge
i've been a scoundrel, a bastard, denied the better parts of my gift
i've been a cancer, a blackhole, disaster waiting at the edge

sunday morning showed me a vision i'd never seen
you came towards me slowly through tall grass and the weeds
you said darlin' please don't hold yourself under the waves
you spoke darling please give yourself a chance to breathe

i walked to the shore on barefoot soles to the waiting coals
embers red flares crackle in the air as i walk i bow my head low
i imagine sunrise as a prisoner might who spent years in solitary confinement
the light burns my eyes and the expanse of the sky shimmers like so many diamonds

i was certain the universe would implode
as the fire licked my feet, i returned to the sea
in my mind i became a ghost
i conjured a spirit a visage of you
and i promised to follow wherever you lead
it's back to the light, we all choose or own life
despite what evidence precedes

we all walk parallel for a distance until
all lines merge on the horizon
what we thought was ours, alone to despair
come to find is like the mouth of the ocean
with interlocked hands, as woman as man
we all watch as the sky cracks open
and the distance between the furthest of these
collapses as any false notion
Track Name: fear of the dark
You're in there somewhere, underneath it all...
I saw a light come on out of the dark
I'm still waiting where you told me to

As if you were no one
as if you never existed at all
I could be no one too

We're all haunted
we've all seen a ghost or two
and when we close our eyes
we're haunted there too
follows me around to this day

As if you were no one
as if you never existed at all
I could be no one too

I won't be lost here, out in this fog
I will find my way back somehow
We're not all born afraid of the dark

As if you were no one
as if you never existed at all
I could be no one too

You're in there somewhere
underneath it all
I saw a light come on
out of the dark
and I'm still waiting
where you told me to
Track Name: imprint of your storm
although, my heart is broken
i am not depressed
i am impressed by your hurricane

although i am alone now
much more alone then before
i am better for having been burned by your flame

forever will i feel
the imprint of your storm
pushing back against my skin

see these arms and how they're broken
see this face and the ghost you've woken
all this time, on this path you've chosen
don't know much but i know it's over
Track Name: rise
take me to the river jordan
take me to redeem my soul
take me for to meet my savior
take me cross the styx and moat

born to the river let the water inside
drowned by the current only later to rise
Track Name: bleeding
I've been waiting on the sun
the sun ain't ever gonna come
I've been waiting on someone
someone whom is well known
ain't ever gonna show

I've been bleeding out this blood
open up these veins just enough
to let out the used up love
the love that ain't good enough
meant for no one

I've been writing these songs
been singing em all day long
looking for the meaningful words
meaningful words in a meaningless world
