Track Name: Frost
This warmth keeps on melting, the thorns I grew
I’m sweating out a fever, my heart 180'd out
I’m different from before

Sceneries passing by slowly
even though I know I differ so much from my past regrets
fade away in your warmth

The colours filling my dreams, Keep on blending
And nothing is as it seems
Like crystals falling from the sky

Say goodbye to the me I used to be once upon a time
(Dreams ideals all melt away)

I salute to all the promises I couldn’t keep don’t cry now
it’s alright now

As we live such short lives, eternity is just an illusion
there is no room for waiting, so we will keep on changing
(Farewell snow that piles up in heaps to disappear)

I just want to feel some warmth
Or that’s what I told myself
Don’t burn your fingers as you search for answers

This warmth keeps on melting, the thorns I grew
I’m sweating out a fever, my heart 180'd out
I’m different from before

Sceneries passing by slowly
even though I know I differ so much from my past regrets
fade away in your warmth

Oh can you feel my flesh in heated fever
It is the proof of all my time with you, defrosting gently

Say goodbye to the me I used to be once upon a time
(Dreams ideals all melt away)

I salute to all the promises I couldn’t keep don’t cry now
it’s alright now

As we live such short lives, eternity is just an illusion
there is no room for waiting, so we will keep on moving forward

Tonight's our last Goodnight
Track Name: Wind
There is a storm between us
Driving ever onward through a hail of dust
Through the night and the cold and the dark of my soul
Pushes the volume higher

Tempest rising over paralyzing silence and stillness
Resounding the hollow aches to be filled
This darkness is aggressive, black hole forces supermassive
Overtaking passionate will

You show up at the worst time
And empty my life with what you steal
And I'm scraping the bottom of my soul
Dwelling on the painful just to feel
Like I'm not in the grave yet
Like I'm not just a specter in your room
But every time that our eyes meet
I see vicious intent to keep me in my tomb

Burn it down, the caution to move forward
Take a step take a breath, it won't kill you to move
Through the open door that's before your eyes
'Cause your whole life is beckoning you
And I can't tell you what will be when you get there
Just take your heart off the shelf
Dust it off and face a brave new world
That you'll just have to see for yourself

Statues brought to motion, stillness stirs and the dead is brought to life
Though it feels like an ocean of darkness, you will find

Fire and light to rival the night
The sun will rise and fill your sight
Only after you let go of the chains that are keeping you bound
Will you find your heart, release the strongest part
Of the army waiting to fight from inside
I lead a revolution
Devastate the enemy
Track Name: Skylight
Back and forth, push it through the floorboards
Memories won't let you breathe
And I am left to sift through the ashes
Flames have taken all of me
This house is unrelenting with the vision of you
The echoes are swallowing all, leaving hollow regrets that run me through
(Chain! Unchain! Chain! Unchain!)

Oh what strength it would take to break free, but
What if you did, what if you did

(chorus)
Transparent form of life, once I had called you mine
Transcend the black and white, reach down and shape this life
Remove these blinded eyes and give me the gift of a giant's sight

Remove these blinded eyes and give me the gift of a giant's sight
That will never falter but will survive

At first light you can bet that my first move will be to run to the door
Every spotlight begets a shadow, and though it's behind me
It's hungry jaws want more

(chorus)
Transparent form of life, once I had called you mine
Transcend the black and white, reach down and shape this life
Remove these blinded eyes and give me the gift of a giant's sight
That will never falter but will survive

Even from the mountain's height I can see the valley beneath me
The darkened path I've tread bares its claws and teeth to reach me

The rooms speak unintelligible whispers in your voice
It's coming from the other side of the bed and
It's the sound and the color
That fills up my heart and drains out the life
That's left inside my eyes

I wrap my heart in stone so I won't feel so alone
This granite casing is suffocating
An aching hand without a match to hold

(chorus)
Transparent form of life, once I had called you mine
Transcend the black and white, reach down and shape this life
Remove these blinded eyes and give me the gift of a giant's sight
That will never falter but will survive

Back and forth, push it through the floorboards
Memories of you here with me
And I am left to sift through the ashes
Flames will rebirth all of me
Though I'm moving, you're the only one alive
Track Name: Twilight
The sky, has told me many things I’ll never forget
(Why is it, so hard to take a breath here)


It's time to shut, the voices up in my head, my heart cries out
(the sunlight shines beyond the clouds)


As my mind sings colours flourish, this world is beautiful
No words can swing me and
the scenes keep on reflecting us.


There is a certain beginning and ending already set in stone
If so then is there a reason why I was born in a fixed world

The sun is going down
The horizon softly takes a round shape

You make me change my mind, I know now
that twilight glows a different colour in your eyes.


As my mind sings on, colours flourish, this world’s so wonderful
No words can swing me and
your eyes reflect the infinite skies, twilight.
