Track Name: Tides
There's no secrets, there's no time to find what's down inside
There's no way to look inside and climb back out of mine
I am an island in the sandy shade of what you shine
Like a shrine the ancient pacific waves rise on high.

I don't see what's wrong with going for the ride,
I drink your starlight and become the lunar tide.
I don't see what's wrong with going for the ride,
I drink your starlight and become the lunar tide.

There's no way for you to know what I am inside
Locked away I am no saint, I've got no alibi
I pull my broken bones free from the red riptide
Jellyfish will pull me to the other side.

I don't see what's wrong with going for the ride,
I drink your starlight and become the lunar tide.
I don't see what's wrong with going for the ride,
I drink your starlight and become the lunar tide.

I can't forget those moments in the sand
Two grains tied with a white seashell ampersand
and I'm lost and unsure when you're not beside me
I was lonely, I was gone and I'm awake.

I don't see what's wrong with going for the ride,
I drink your starlight and become the lunar tide.
I don't see what's wrong with going for the ride,
I drink your starlight and become the lunar tide.
Track Name: Amina
Who left you to die?
You poor sleeping saint
You're only dreaming when you're around
And you're walking into the ocean to drown

But if you wake now, you won't escape
Nameless downtown cities clad in grey
People clinging for life and purpose
Lost in their own sea of longing

Go back to sleep.
Track Name: Stay Alive
I want you
To know why
You are here
We survive

No one knows
What they want
If you don't
That's alright

I don't mind
I see why
There is light
in our eyes

Take my hand
Careful there
I want you
I feel you

You are kind
More than I
You make me
More alive

Save your mind
It's alright
You will find
What you want

I will be
Here for you
All the time
If you want

I just need
You to be
Anything
You can be

Stay alive
Stay alive
Love of mine
Love of mine
Track Name: Winds of Change
I hope he makes you happy
I hope he's something great
I hope the end of both our lives are filled with joy.

I know the nights are plenty
I know the stars are stained
I know that I am not the one to be there in the darkness.

I want the line to shine on
I want for you to see
That you could be happy anywhere that you could be

I want to walk on by
I want to touch the sky
I want to feel the same you feel when you realize

We breathe the same cold air
We feel the same warm wind
The rhythm in you is the same drum beat that beats in me

I feel the curtains closing
The rumble in the ground
The winds will carry you
Away from me
Something lost, something found,
Lose me in the sound.

I hope he makes you happy
I hope he's something great
I hope the end of both our lives are filled with joy.

I know the nights are plenty
I know the stars are stained
I know that I am not the one to be there in the darkness.
Track Name: Diana
I am lost
I am free
Won't you come around again
and settle into me?

Where you go
is up to you
I can't say where you'll be
when I see what you see

I will not go
Where you are not
I just need to breathe the air
and you are my lungs

I need you
Queen of the world
Lay me in your silver rags
and make me your saint.

Save me now
Please don't let me drown
I don't mind
Save me now
Pull me down to the ground
I don't mind

Save me now
Please don't let me drown
I don't mind
Save me now
Pull me down to the ground
I don't mind

I don't mind
I don't mind
Track Name: Branches
If I were a softer soul
or a more determined fool
I wouldn't be in this room right now

If I weren't a lazy seed
growing where they planted me
I'd see the sun rise again down south

If I had known what to do
I would have followed you
make a new life that makes way more sense

I wish there was a way
to bring you back today
So we could leave again in the morning

I feel you
I feel me
I feel the darkness call me
I feel you
I feel me
I hear the voices calling

About that softer soul
If I believed in souls
I would want them to be soft

and about that seed
when they bury me
I hope my branches reach a little higher

than the canopy
Bring the sky to me
Use my leaves as your shade

and when they bury you
I hope your next to me
I want our branches to tangle as we drink the stars

I feel you
I feel me
I feel the darkness call me
I feel you
I feel me
I hear the voices calling

Now I'm not afraid
I will love you everyday
I'll burn no bridges
I won't run the other way
Now I'm not afraid
I will love you everyday
If not in sight, then in mind
Now we're on our way

I feel you
I feel me
I feel the darkness call me
I feel you
I feel me
I hear the voices calling
Track Name: Balder
I never once thought that the song we used to play
on our acoustic guitars
beside the fire
in the attic
in the cold

Would be the same one that they would play
as we looked down
at your still face
and said goodbye

I know that nothing lasts forever
I know there was nothing I could do
but if you were still here I'd be
less afraid and more complete.

All the words that the preacher would say
didn't describe you
and were unfair to you
in the least.

you were so much more
than what they said
and what we have
are your own words

I know that nothing lasts forever
I know there was nothing I could do
but if you were still here I'd be
less afraid and more complete.

I could never be like you
but you made me
Who I am today and I won't break
Take me back to October
I want to see what you saw
in the trees and in the sun that day

I know that nothing lasts forever
I know there was nothing I could do
but if you were still here I'd be
less afraid and more complete
less afraid and more complete
less afraid and more
Track Name: Separate Me
Who is my only love to date?
Who is the one to keep me sane?
When I'm alone and the night is creeping in
There's no escape from what the monsters will drag in

Separate me
Separate me

Separate me
Separate me
(Drown me in the ocean, drown me in the ocean)

If you are the love of my life
Take me to the open skies
lay me down in the cold wet grass
and tell me that life just won't last

Separate me
Separate me
(Drown me in the ocean, drown me in the ocean)

Separate me
Separate me
(Drown me in the ocean, drown me in the ocean)

If you were the only one
to save me from my own person
protect me from my frozen self
I've got more ice than an arctic shelf

Separate me
Separate me
(Drown me in the ocean, drown me in the ocean)

Separate me
Separate me
(Drown me in the ocean, drown me in the ocean)

If you saw the dark in me
would you still try to see
The ocean of light in my head
Well, meet me in my mind instead

Separate me
Separate me
(Drown me in the ocean, drown me in the ocean)

Separate me
Separate me
(Drown me in the ocean, drown me in the ocean)
Track Name: Silence
Silence
in the mind
feel all kinds

Palm prints
on the rocks
red with chalk

Angels
In the trees
wings and leaves

Maras
in the ground
know their way

Around all your mindscapes
Around all your pathways

Om
Om

Losing
your own way
just can't find

Where the
forest stops
clear the path

Outward
where our minds
think they see

Inward
stop the mind
let the thoughts

Roll off all your mindscapes
Clear off all your pathways

Roll off all your mindscapes
Clear off all your pathways

Om
Om
Om
Om
