Track Name: The Gift
Here ya go love...



The wings I've built to fly,
They weigh me down

I glide up to the heights
Then crash to ground

I want to soar
But then I fall
I want to soar
But then I fall
I want to soar
But then I fall
I want to soar
But then I fall

My voice sinks into the ice
Without a sound

Chorus Repeat

The cost of my birthright's
A heavy crown

I pay my gift its price
To bone I'm bound

Chorus Repeat
Track Name: Long Walk Home
I've done some damage, so they tell me
But I know when a fight is not fair
A thousand roads have passed beneath me
By the looks of it I'm getting nowhere

I'm on a long walk home
I'm on a long walk home

Hills on fire, they make the best sunsets
But the ashes settle on me
Where can I find the arms of shelter?
Where can I find a place of safety?

I'm on a long walk home
I'm on a long walk home

When I was young, I had all the answers
Now the blind truth is all I see
Tried hard to escape my nature
Can't change what I am meant to be

I'm on my way home
I'm on my way home
Track Name: Broken Time
Broken mirrors still reflect an image back
Reaching outward from a variegated stage
Taunting visions in chiaroscuro attack
Miming creation from premeditated rage

Still you know that you are seen
You know that you are seen

But when the time has broken
There's no coming back from this one

Idle waters illustrate your outward view
Calm on the surface but unstable down below
Single drop flips the scene over askew
Image lost down in the violent undertow

Still you know that you are seen
You know that you are seen

But when the time has broken
There's no coming back from this one
Track Name: Song For St. Teresa
Sweet pain, never end
Pierce me, Godsend

Close your eyes
Blessed lover of mine
Feel me we have time
Time to make you mine

And when I wake up
I’m in your mind
I wake for you
I ache for you
I break for you
I’d kill for you

Come to me now
My precious child
Your body blooms
As I punish you

And when I wake up
I’m in your mind
I wake for you
I ache for you
I break for you
I’d kill for you

In the darkness
I slip into you
Your rapture
Washes over you
In the darkness
I slip into you
Your rapture
Washes over

I wake for you
I ache for you
I break for you
I’d kill for you
