Track Name: By the Pond
gray and misty air
i breathed it on my knees
i dug my fingers in the ground
planting them like trees
i ran them through the moss,
just like you ran yours through my knotted hair
a heart ten miles across
but you would not share


the dirt cast memories aside
as i brushed the dew
i threw familiar skipping stones
past my point of view
they bounced off their reflections
just like you gave into despair
a heart ten miles across
but you would not share


hold me once again
don't be afraid to try
broken we may be
but love's not one to lie
a heart ten miles across
Track Name: Lost at Dusk
i can see my the work my lungs are doing
pouring out with mist
silent barks and mosses, growths of hiding
tell me all you know

and i have yet to see the woods align
i've let my limbs grow wild
and i will pay with what means the most to me
evenings, fresh and mild

branches trace dark patterns in the soil
that shadows follow
willow wisps and silhouettes are mourning
trees that i don't know

(drink the air around you)
(sacred fog surrounds you)

night will soon be upon me, and i'm back where i began
disembodied wanderers guide me by my hand
will they lead me from this place?
or will they never let their numb embrace?

and i have yet to see the woods align
i've let my limbs grow wild
and i will pay with what means the most to me
evenings, fresh and mild

and i have yet to see the woods align
the night has left me blind
and i will pay with what means the most to me
i'll leave it all behind
Track Name: Floating by the Edge
the river's lights are dim
but i can still see you grinning
your teeth are made of stone
it's a fitting sight to see
the glimmer in the field
it's a haunt but a hopeful
one at best

lights are kissing
floating by the edge tonight
let me be one
kill me by the water, bear me underwater
lights are kissing
floating by the edge tonight
let me be one
kill me by the water, take me underwater

no, no, no
it's not fair
no, no, no
it's not fair, it's not fair, oh!
Track Name: Bed of Silt
let me be one
let me be one
it's not fair
Track Name: The Welcome Party
no one cares what you do
as long as you don't do it to them too
which makes me realize
no one will find my body

and i think back to the trees
the spirits brought me to my knees
and so i've become the antagonist
to my own story

i drift over my pale glow
like the stones i threw so long ago
which now act as headstones
to that which i once called home

the welcome party is now here
their haunted faces look so familiar
i'm ready to guide the lost and lonely
and those who roam

please remember this
nothing, oh nothing was your fault
oh, my love
i'll see you in your dreams

i hope you break your gilded cage
of emerald jealousy and ruby rage
i don't care how beautiful
it may seem

and we are wiser than the kings
love no one, love everything

please remember this
nothing, oh nothing was your fault
oh, my love
i'll see you in your dreams
Track Name: Reprise
oh, my love
