Track Name: Tools For Divine Rewiring
In search of the other side

Waves beyond me

It was the soul's own circuitry

And damage has been done

The feelers receiving

All contacts memorized in blood

The silence

The silence

And I try

I tried to step inside

All of this was a sign

From across the dark divide

Every pinch

Every pain

Tools for divine Rewiring

The silence

Vibrations

Reflecting

The cause is still affecting

A focus unending

Wavelength we are sending

And in the transition

you learn to reposition

Receptors are aching

It's all part of the waking
Track Name: Miscarriage of Salvation
I tell the same story again and again
Another picture reminds me the colors of my prison
A phone call from a stranger who says
Another
Miscarriage of Salvation

Coincidentally, simultaneously
Right as I awaken to the vacuum silence again
I will carry it with me this time
So that next time there will be no surprise

But instead my heart skips a beat
And my hands lose control of a contrived doing
Let the undoing begin

It's malignant course

I find little freedom
In this free choice

Another reminder
Quick and sharp
But it lingers softly

And I watch him try to heal
Try to understand the loss

Another reminder of what brought me here
To this stormy sky in my brain

It all comes together in a sea of murder
Where heaven and Hell collide all the time
And madness
(The only logical thing)
Madness
(The only logical thing)
Madness

Prevail..

I tell the same story again and again
Another picture reminds me the colors of my prison

A phone call from a stranger who says

Another

Miscarriage of salvation
Track Name: The Eye
No room inside mortality
To be insecure
Oh but it suits well the need
For diversion
Block the doorway...
of truth

To shut off the thoughts
Escaping to the tunnel that is Inevitable

The eye is meant to open and then close
Born to see
Momentarily

And then fade to blackness as if that was all it had ever known

As if seeing once was enough

As if opportunity could not be wasted
And as if to say
Fuck you
It still doesn't matter
Fuck you
It still doesn't matter

It still doesn't matter
Track Name: Amnesia
Waking up the deepest sleep
That I never dreamt inside
Waking up to stranger's eyes
That I'd never think to hide
It's the morning darkest light
Washed away the shadows died

Lose all memory
One moment
Nothing's left
Lose all the feeling
it's beautiful
Sick with amnesia

Holding but skeleton
Time could stop and let me go
Leading a blood history
Burning all of what I know
Never did these things appear
All the pain it wasn't so

Lose all memory
One moment nothing's left
Lose all the feeling
A bitter heart amnesia

Enter now synapse chimes
Take it back I never fell
From the angel prophecy
Did the math and cast the spell
Time it burns right through the wall
What it found time will tell
And the clocks will never turn back into the gates of hell

Lose all memory
One moment
Nothing's left!
Track Name: Promise Sealed
Inside many creatures wait to be revealed in time
Each moment sealing promises of fate
And the spiders are awake through these silken webs that wrap up the night
With a twisted dream of light

A twisted dream

A twisted dream

A mortal passage of light
Slowly
Execution
That lights the way

It is known

A twisted dream of life

With a twisted dream of light
Track Name: Asylum
You are inside the looking glass
You are the madness
You are the violence
And the asylum knows your past
You are the demon
You are the silence

You are inside the looking glass
You are the child losing your mind
And the reflection knows your past
Do you remember, what did you find?

You've just begun to see the signs
Warping to phantoms and pets that are blind

And the Asylum mocking your visions
Watching you writhe
It knows your(e) kind


You are inside the looking glass
You are the madness
You are the violence
And the asylum knows your past

You are the dreaming

You are the silence

And the asylum knows your past
You are inside the looking glass
Track Name: Cathedral
Gloria

Don't want redemption
Don't want to put things right
And did I mention
The truth is out of sight

Don't want to say Amen
O sing Halleluia

I just come here for a little sound movement

Gloria

Gloria

Don't want redemption
Don't want to speak the truth
Don't want to clear the air
No such confession
Just want to be right here
Will get me close to you

No I can't say Amen
O sing Halleluia
No need to save my soul

I just come here for a little sound movement

Gloria

I just come here for a little sound movement

Don't want redemption
No need to speak my truth

Don't want to say those words
O sing Halleluia
No need to save my soul
O sing Halleluia
O sing Halleluia

And did I mention

The still reflection

She was my purity
Track Name: Moonlight Crash
Light the candles
And let my foolish heart give in
And silently I
I almost win

Drinking in my deepest secrets
Dripping into a murky puddle
It shines so blue

Walking through the weaving path
And over up above my head
I see the moonlight crash

Unlock the key
Move the heavy door
Step into the room can't see no more

But I'm alive
The swan ghost cried

Touching while the sky turned liquid
Painting all the stars I want to see

And the movement of the air is so languid and so sweet

Take this gift I leave you now
Track Name: Bleeds
Isn't it time to dine
Time to steal the power
I raise a glass tonight
Won't waste the darkest hour
It's what we've come here for
The vagueness starts to sharpen
It's what I'll die here for
To drink from the fountain

The sparkle of a dream
The creeping crawling wanting
I have't got a thing that doesn't ache when falling
And everything will change again
I make my decisions up along with the wind
Along with the wind
Along with the wind

Isn't t time to dine
Time to steal the power
I raise a glass tonight
It's what we've come here for
The vagueness starts to sharpen
It's what I'll die here for
To drink from the fountain

A resurrection light
The smoke from the magus
The beating of a heart
The love that bleeds inside us
The love that bleeds inside us
The love that bleeds inside us
Track Name: Shadow
Saw the light on
Private signals
In her shadow
I belong with you
I belong with you

Nothing could replace the face that shattered
Dreams are broken and I'm stepping on the pieces
In between the ghost of her and you is how I seem
Won't forget I'm picking up the pieces

Is her light on
Private signals
Should I wait for you
Sifting through the pieces

And in the hour of your open heart and my open mind
I saw the signals of a million different pieces
Reflecting light
And slicing up my tender ego's flesh
How I waited while my love was torn to pieces

Is her light on
Private signals
In her shadow
I belong with you
Track Name: To Walk Away
Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away

The door is wide open and I've already paid

What I wish right now above all
Is to unthaw
What I want to see here
Is clear
Clear
Clear

Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away

The door is wide open and I've already paid

Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away

I don't wanna leave
But long enough I've stayed
Can't undo the chains that I've begun to braid

Like a fortune from the sun
It says come undone

Uncoil all the fear
It's clear
Clear
Clear

Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away

The door is wide open and I've already paid
Don't know how to leave something I've made

Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away
Teach me to walk away

The door is wide open and I've already paid

Don't know how to leave something I've made
Track Name: Learning
You can't do it for me
I can't do it for you
But we both need somebody to guide us through

You talk about virtue
Humility..
Which you expect to pour out of me
But can you hear this
Can you see
The reason we're in the same company

You can't do it for me
I can't do it for you
But we both need somebody to guide us through

I hold up a mirror
And you look away
There's nothing inside
The frame, you say
Just an empty hollow
Reflection of the day
And the dead silence
Is no reason to stay

You can't do it for me
I can't do it for you

But we both need somebody to guide us though

We both know somebody to guide us though
Track Name: Miles and Miles
You're just one more
That's been put on a pedestal
And now the war is over
We both know who won

Residing king
Strong and powerful
You are you were you are you were

And now that you don't want me
Well legend says I'll want you more
But I'm the ghost
In your deadlock score

The illusion of your stature
The delusion of your grandeur
Are miles and miles between us
Miles and miles between us

And now that you don't want me
Well legend says I'll want you more
But I'm the ghost
In your deadlock score

I'll follow in the distance for awhile
There's miles and miles between us
Miles and miles and miles and miles
