Track Name: The Nobleman
The Nobleman

Drowned by viral chamber light
Her hands grew pale
Lily white
My sins were only human
Must they punish me to watch and wait
Her skin is only physical
And my heart is the same
My whole world in a day
Track Name: Shadows

The spectre of your beauty
Lingers on
Light as whispers
Barely audible
Underground I'll run
Where all of our promises came undone
If I am your shadow
You must be the sun
The spectre of your beauty
Lingers on
Thin as whiskers
Barely visible
The burden of obsession
Drags me through
The alter of confession
Cannot free me from you
Track Name: The Rift
The Rift

This ancient poison
Coursing through my veins
This ancient poison
An unfamiliar pain
This dark rapture
Swelling wave by wave
This dark rapture
An unfamiliar game
You are a grain of sand
In an ocean of math
There must be a map
A light upon the horizon
Track Name: Wheelwalker

The bandages of your lover
Only conceal
A heart of arms and famine
A walker of the wheel
So frail and weak
In too deep again
The suffering of our mother
Poisoned by her child
Up to our knees in madness
Wading though the mire
Caught in the holy throws of ether
Stumbling along a lonely highway
Weeping for my love
My only Earth
The hell that we made
The hell we made in our own image
Track Name: Fears

You wasted the better moments
Just beyond the ocean
All my fears are there
You wasted a part of me
Just beyond the sea
All my fears are there
Wayward youth
I can protect you from the truth
No more
If only I knew
That I had nothing to prove to you
Or lose
Your fickle nature
Was a cross to bear
Like the mask you wear
All my fears are there
Your love is nothing
Compared to my apathy
And your sleep is heaven
Compared to these waking dreams
