Track Name: It Shallows My Grave
It’s time to face the fact that I am a target in his sight
The worms they consume his brain and it, it shallows my grave

My mind, my psyche, my life is all unaligned
I can’t feel bones, I am just a stone and I think that all of this is my own

He is possessed by something greater than God
His soul is gone, his head is so fucked
And I know that he will shallow my grave

He hides in trees and waits for his prey to concede
To knives he keeps inside of his sleeves
But I will now fall down to my knees

Save me
Save me
From him

It shallows my grave
It shallows my grave

I looked at everything that sent him to me
His home is mine, the scars on his skin
I think that I am parallel to him
Track Name: Too Many Ghosts in This Town
I'm in the woods and I fall to my knees
Crack my head open on an endless dream
I cannot resist the weight of it
The twilight sky homes me in

Sleep is catching up with me
My eyes are weary and my bones will give in
But if I fall asleep I will see you
And then I’ll have to suffer waking up

It grows and grows......
There's Too Many Ghosts in this Town

So now I’ve numbed all of my senses
The only thing I can smell is the mud
My eyes are fogged up and my ears are blocked
I can still see that pale face

There are screams in the distance
A fox is giving up
There's a rustling in the trees
Those green bats are fighting again

It grows and grows......
There's Too Many Ghosts in this Town

Stop following me
My shadow's lost at sea

Stop following me
I'll stay here and never be seen

There's Too Many Ghosts in this Town

So now I'm stuck where I belong
Tangled up in the branches
And these dead trees are mocking me
Soon they will each have ten thousand leaves
Track Name: I Wish I Was Sacred
Pick up your walking shoes
Come on I need a bruise
I don’t know where I am
Someone please hold my hand

We have wandered for far too long
And discovered nothing good
I have fallen through every day
But I can’t find the time to sail away

Let out my heads contents
Get ready for descent
We can fight it, we can win
Open up the doors let them in

How can God be kind if he gave me this?
Another mountain pushing on my back
Every whisper every scream and shout
Goes unnoticed so I cut Him out

So keep a hold of yourself
Lord knows you’re the only one
And keep a hold of what you’ve got
God knows you’re the only one
You’re the only one
Track Name: A Pitchfork in the Sun
The birds are falling like rain, now crawling down hills into spills
And there’s a wanderer in the dark, who vomits his heart on his plate, he’s too late
So we are the last and it’s gone so fast from our hands, burning lands
And the ground is cracking with us caught slacking, now silence for our earth

There’s dust in our words
And so they can’t be fulfilled
We’re spitting our hopes to the clouds

We descend into madness with judgement and sadness in our minds, clogged with slime
Leaving pitchforks in the sun, picking up mouldy guns, we can’t take it no more

Houses to hollow
And graves to be unmade
Where is our God this time?

Our fingers are sticks and we break like bricks on the floor, we owe more
And we can’t go any slower; we just grow colder in ourselves, dying cells
So our lives turn to dirt and that’s all they’re worth, to be scattered and shattered
But those who have not sinned are carried by the wind to their beds in content

Believers are saved
And the dammed with clutch at ghosts
But they are gone from this world

I see you fall inside the foundation of the mind you stole, it unfolds
Well now I was a liar and I’ll burn in this fire and there’s nothing you can do

Everything is lost
And God will fuck me up
The demons take my soul

Oh Brother can’t you see? I’m falling ever deep
Oh Sister where are you? I’m begging help me through
And I sink into the cracks in the ground

Don’t cry out there’s no watcher
Don’t speak up there’s no listener
Don’t try to breathe there’s no air
We are all drones stuck in despair

Don’t look up the sky is envy
Don’t look down the ground is greed

Everyday we take our pills to believe
That God will save us from this dream

But He wont
And we slave
And we feel the pain
Where is life?
Where is hope?
We have sunk the boat

Don’t repent you’re infected
Don’t take the pill there’s no saviour

Our pitchforks have no use in this place
We are just flies we will die everyday
Track Name: Marrow
Come out of your weathered cave
And feel the sun on your face

Is this your first summer light?
Have you lived there your whole life?

You’ll see a skeleton
Peering through the cracks

It will always be there for your
Mothering your step

You were her last creation
Before she lost her strength

The cold wind still haunts your mind
Now a ghost lies in your prints

You have to grow up on your own
The months you’ve spent are lost

So take your head out the sand
And move out through the land

But it hurts too much…
Track Name: Morning Saviour
Scars on my skin
One for each of my sins
I need a new face
That God gave grace

These bleeding hands
Were all that I could withstand
When I sank my heart
And fell into the dark

I've lost my friends
So I’m trying so hard to mend
But it hurts to speak
'Cause I just feel so weak

The voices scream
Whenever I try to dream
They mess me up
Now I have had enough

Will you take me away from this?
Can you clean all of the blood I’ve missed?
Will you put me on my best behaviour?
Can you be my Morning Saviour?

I try to run
And forget about what I’ve done
Want to move away
But I feel the need to stay

These weary feet
Are keeping me from sleep
So pull me apart
Maybe this can be a new start

Will you teach me how I can exist?
Can you see the fire on my wrist?
Will you put me on my best behaviour?
Can you be my Morning Saviour?
Track Name: Solace in the Solstice
Skyscrapers all around me
But I’m hiding inside the dirt
I’ll sail on top of your cigarette
Make a rudder out of broken twigs

The devastating sound of a screaming girl
It shivers all over my skin
And the terrifying feel of the crushing feet
Will forever haunt me when I sleep

Well I slip and slide and I fall down the pipes
And you cut my webs and I drop to the floor
Scramble for the nearest crack in the wall
And run away to where I can’t be seen
To somewhere else

Take solace in the solstice
Forget about all their spite
As long as your heart beats
Everything will be all right

I’ll hide under your windowsill
Waiting for the beat of the wind
And I make my way to the outside
But look upon where I will die

‘Cause there are birds in the sky and they’ll pick at my brains
And the cats and dogs will eat me up like rice
Just another grain of sand upon the beach
No name, no grave, no future in me

Take Solace in the Solstice
Forget about all their spite
As long as your heart beats
Everything will be all right
Track Name: Leaving Home
Well I’m leaving home tonight and I don’t want to go
‘Cause I think that I’m happy staring at my standing feet

Should I bring all my regrets and my memories with me?
Or leave them wandering the body from which I received

So I’ve said goodbye to all of my best friends
And I’ve promised that I will try and keep in contact

But if you look at my past you can see my future
And they’ll end up behind the dust, searching for light

Leaving Home
On my own
I’m a timid little stone

So what if I like it better over the hill?
Will I want to return to the life time will decay?

So I’ll put all my regrets and my memories in a plastic bag
And I’ll purposely leave them on the back seat of the bus

They have kept me back
In summers and icy tracks
There’s nothing left to pack

Well I’m leaving home tonight and I don’t want to go
I’m afraid I might fuck up my new life like the last

Will I have a ghost of my past to lean on?
Or make one out of these weary dreary bones?
Track Name: Wandering
Quietly, tapping his fingers
He walks through the snow

Respectfully, keeping quiet
He sees the one who plagues his mind

Regretfully, he holds tongue
But drops his head on the floor

Silently, the screams come back
And he bellows out these words

I don’t wanna do this anymore
Get out, get out, get out of my head

Gracefully, she walks on by
Doesn’t say a word nor lullaby

Instinctively, he freezes his skin
At a moment of complete disgrace

Reluctantly, he picks up his head
And closes the curtains on his eyes

Worryingly, she can still be seen
Her image is burnt in his eyelids

I don’t wanna do this anymore
Get out, get out, get out of my head
Track Name: We Can Make Happiness With His Bones
Oh, we can make happiness with everything he leaves
Oh, we can make something good with all the things he had
Oh, we can make a real man with everything he was
Oh, we can make happiness with his bones

I never thought that it would come to this
You said that everything would be ok
I thought I had the demons under control
But they came back stronger everyday, oh God

Face the light and stand
Open up your hands
And let the memories drift away

Well I can’t be saved
But I wont be blamed
So take me home
And keep my bones

I told you not to go I need you here
I’m afraid of myself; I don’t know what I’ll do

Oh, we can make happiness with everything he leaves
Oh, we can make something good with all the things he had
Oh, we can make a real man with every he was
Oh, we can make happiness with his bones
