Track Name: A Different Light
Winter's coming and I know it's just a matter of time now
A matter of time
Before the new year brings a different light
For different eyes, our different eyes

And I know I'll recognize it when winter is here

It was Autumn I was sleeping late
I wasn't ready so I wasn't there
In your apartment in the city
It didn't seem real
So it wasn't real

And I've been saving all my time
While the others waste their lives
And soon I'll start living mine

And it's only getting started, only the beginning, oh you know it's on it's way

You say that summer isn't far away
But I don't believe you, no I don't believe
In the seasons anymore and not
Not even years, no, not even years
'Cause to me time is just one line that doesn't break
Just because the earth is drawn to the sun

And there's nothing in the light
That divides the days and nights
And if it's endless then it might as well be

Only getting started, only the beginning, oh you know it's on it's way

And I've been saving all my time
While the others waste their lives
And soon I'll start living mine
When winter is here
Track Name: Artifact Sound
One of these days
It will breathe
Several words
In your ear
When you spoke
Every word was filled with holes
To make us all
Fall inside

And every artifact sound is breaking up
You’ve been waiting to go back someplace warm
Where everyone you love is open

If all were dark
But for the light of your eyes
And all were silent
But for the sound of your breath
I’d like to think
That even through the layers of earth
That I could sense
Exactly where you were

And every artifact sound is breaking up
You’ve been waiting to go back someplace warm
Where everyone you love is open

So with every breath you take I’ll listen closely focusing my sight upon the dull red glow that softly warms the eyelids of the layers of earth that stand between all that is real and everything
that never was there at all
Track Name: Timelines
Feel every hour, feel every storm
Deep in your bones, deep in your blood
‘Cause there are timelines and there floods
That separate and define
Every island
And every passing year

And this is where you used to be real
So long ago, so long ago
And this is how I finally learn
That things that stay are connected to
Others, others
That are never coming back

All of their names
And faces have changed
And I hope you’ve stayed
Exactly the same

I feel so close for we are apart
Only in time, only in time
But there’s no meaning in the space that we share
And I never will understand
Why it has to be this way

All of their names
And faces have changed
And I hope you’ve stayed
Exactly the same

It’s been a long time
But I know I knew you once
A long time
It’s been a long time
And it goes on and on
A long time

And I hope you stay
Exactly the same

Deep in your bones, deep in your blood
Only in time, only in time
Track Name: This Is Not My Home
All quiet
The silence is our wind
That barely moves the trees
All on the silver leaves
We know if we try
We’ll forget our history
So no one even speaks
Anymore

Sister let me go
I don’t want to see, I don’t want to know
I think it’s wrong
I’m one thought from a myth
And one from belief in someone’s ghost
Or someone’s god

And this is not my home
I won’t recognize your call
I won’t see you in the fall
And I won’t miss you when it’s gone

Let’s agree
We’ll never change again
No, we’ll stay the way we’ve been
In spite of all the ones
That try to hold
Our voices in their frames
Knowing that none of them can stop us now

Spent so many years
Developing this synesthetic bliss
But now it just feels wrong
‘Cause every time I see
A parking lot lit by the sun
I think it’s God

And this is not my home
I won’t recognize your call
I won’t see you in the fall
And I won’t miss you when it’s gone
Track Name: Crowded Cities
One of these days
I will find a way to make it work
I will swim
Until I reach the edges of the earth

Crowded cities blocking out the stars
Everybody’s going out tonight
Broken buildings and smoke above the cars
Don’t worry darling I won’t forget the light

One of these days
I will find a way to make it work
To get away
We’ll tunnel to center of the earth

Crowded cities blocking out the stars
Everybody’s going out tonight
Broken buildings and smoke above the cars
Don’t worry darling I won’t forget the light
Track Name: Forest Floor
On the forest floor
Quieting an ageless year
I try to fall asleep
Restless as my brother watches over me
And now that morning has come
I hardly remember anything
I only recall the leaves
I only remember they were dark and thick and beautiful that year

Memories are made of soft truth
Collapsing underneath the weight
Of everything we’d rather believe

I know that you are
Older than these endless rings
I try to trace you back
Further but it only ever ends at me
And I ask what I could call
The ghost of your history
Oh nothing at all
Their names are but empty words that will remain unspoken now

So tonight we mark the passing of
The ages that have scattered all
And what about the ghost that we made?
Sometimes I’m almost sure his breath
Is floating in this room to this day

The air was so thick with remorse
Preparing itself to be born
Cold wind was shaking the door
Gravity pulled from the floor
But I awoke

And I said, It’s time
And the darkened candles gave their smoke back
To the night
And the sky was open wide and now
There’s a bed of roses
That blooms beneath the evergreens
Where we once stood
Where we once stood
Now who lies there yes
Who lies there tonight?

(On and on and on and all the way back down
It still feels the same
So I’ll go on and on and on and all the back down
It still feels the same
So I will go)
Track Name: As Autumn Ends
Once in a while
Once in a while
You look just like someone
Someone I used to know
And I’m filled with glass and mirror in the place of something real

I’ll never see
I’ll never know
It’s buried in the leaves
Or covered by the snow
Of memory

As autumn ends the extra hour is not enough
The coldest wind, the deepest trust is not enough
It’s not enough

Once in five years
I saw your face
Your grey eyes were so clear
That I believed them real
And there they stayed so permanent and impossibly still

We used to share
A time and a place
But now you’re by the sea
While I live among the trees
And ever will

As winter ends another year is not enough
The warmest touch, the deepest love is not enough
It’s not enough
Our love is not enough
Track Name: Old House
I want to go back to the old house now that we’re older
It isn’t the same now that it’s all been painted over
But I still want to see the shapes
That those old walls and windows used to make

Do you remember when we went to the third floor
And sat on the carpet as the light poured through the windows
Would the dust behind your hair
Still glow as brightly in the sun?

All our lives are changing but I want to believe
It’s still as real as we
And every hour that passes through me
Every single thing I’ve seen remains somewhere
And you are always there

So where are the rivers that we’d swim when we were younger?
And where are the winters that our memory sleeps under?
Where are our grandfather’s children
And the songs our mothers gave us?
I can hear you singing
If I listen close enough at night

All our lives are changing but I want to believe
It’s still as real as we
And every hour that passes through me
Every single thing I’ve seen remains somewhere

And I don’t want to change so when I’m
Home again
I will pretend to fall asleep
I want to stay right here so if you find me
Home again
I will pretend that I’m asleep
Don’t wake me up

I can hear you singing if I listen close enough at night yes
I can hear you singing if I listen
Track Name: Twilight
The thinnest trees
Make us believe
The lies they weave
Into lives
And I can’t see
Underneath
The fallen leaves
Though I try
To see them fade
Like dark red paint
In thick glass frames
In the house

Take one down of the wall
Take one down, take them all
Now and then and again
Other ways to pretend

‘Cause I’m losing confidence in all I’ve known
When it’s dark outside you only trust your eyes to see just what you want them to

Shadows shroud
Dark red clouds
Up and down
They take flight
And it’s the sound
Of different birds
Their whispered words
Fill the night

One by one they will come
One by one, one by one
Now and then and again
Other ways to pretend

After all I finally see that
I was born to feel this way
The moon was bright as hell I fell asleep

Please just let me stay like this just for tonight
‘Cause there’s nothing you could say to change my mind
And this feeling could just disappear
When morning dreams are touched are touched by sunlight

Oh, we lost our innocence so long ago
Track Name: Future Song
We made words
Temporary like rain
And we made songs that stayed
And over time
The seasons disappeared
And we forgot to change

The wind had stopped
And I barely noticed
We had grown so old
‘Cause after all
It doesn’t feel as long
As it has really been

I remember when your hair was long
And I first learned your name
And I never needed any songs
To understand this weight

Last night it faded fast
Last night it faded fast and I want to weigh it down some
I won’t let it pass
I won’t let it pass ‘cause this time
I saw you in the future
We brushed our hair aside and
