1.
Tell me again When will it end It's all in your head And I'm tired of wasting time adrift at sea With eyes that cannot stray from the abyss in me What have I done She was the one As bright as the sun But I've made my choice Please end this voyage here I'm holding my breath Just have to fight the fear I had a dream A mere memory Of you and me

Phantom Limb 03:21
Come closer still Into the light Unfound but in The longest night Under the skin I follow the phantom limb Lest I forget my shape Like lines in the sand And make me whole Into the earth And find a soul Who's keeping worth No one will see The valley of darker years How many days and nights I've lost to the fire
4.
In the Fall 04:09
Alone in silent white The noise dies down each night How long the faithful pray Until their judgement day In the Fall, love I'll be waiting for you To embrace my heart in the rain And you'll heal me From these demons inside Who could never steal it away I scratch the days gone by And make believe they fly Against the heat of the flame I will remember your name In the Fall, love I'll be waiting for you To embrace my heart in the rain Will you meet me At the edge of the tide We could dance as one and the same

Déjà Vu 02:59
6.
I live within a darkened room And the sun will never burn me up again I sleep beneath the ocean bed And the waves will never bring me down again There is a trap door in the ceiling It keeps the truth from what I'm dreaming Its wooden beams still bear the scent of the forest I felled I reinforce the wood each day But I can't deny that water's coming through
7.
Set Sail 02:57
I was bound to the ground Breathing out of a heart-shaped lung It was quite difficult to speak your name Release the anchor Set sail into the deep There is something underneath the surface of my mind that I will find When everything that I believed in until now is left behind And in the waves I see reflections of a face that's not my own "Do you remember when you lost the only one that you held dear Because you couldn't have it all and what was left turned into fear Silently screaming through the water 'til those blue eyes turned to stone?" No...

Afterlife 03:44
I feel so alive I see so much light Grass beneath my feet, lovely earth Wind against my face, lovely air Pounding of my heart, lovely blood But is this my blood? Is this my skin? Is this my heart? I recognize this very scene Across the lake, that man is me These memories come rushing in The life I lived inside your skin It's the Fall, love I've been waiting for you Can you bid farewell to your name In the ocean There is nothing to hide We will dance as one and the same
