Track Name: War Is Over
Here I am at the edge of this emptiness
Waiting for you to come confess
I may not be an angel at least I know that
But you give me something hard to hold

I could ask you, but I won't
I'm over this anyway
I could take you home
The war is over, and I'm feeling like a child
alone

You take me down where the water is never real
In a circle we can fall
Is this nothing more than everything to me?
Here at the edge of my only dream

I could ask you, but I won't
I'm over this anyway
I could take you home
The war is over
and I'm feeling like a child
Track Name: I Know We'll Get There
Way down by the riverbed
Where the water rushes and we shed our skin
Everybody knows someone gone
Everyone else moves along
If you're lost and hurting the most
Some people live like a ghost
Standing in the shadows frozen
Are the things we love the most

It's a long way to Heaven
I know we're gonna get there soon
It's a long way to Heaven
I know we'll get there
I swear

In the arms of the one's you love
Hold them safe and shelter them
You will never know when they're gone
Or which path they're on
Maybe a stranger hold the key
That opens you up and sets you free
If you feel don't fight the feeling
To never let it go

It's a long way to Heaven
I know we're gonna get there soon
It's a long way to Heaven
I know we'll get there
I swear

If you lose everything despite the feeling
Don't let it go
Don't let it control you

In the evening when the day is done
and the sun sets over everyone
Every single brother and sister
Every human being
Don't let it be what divides you
Don't let it waste your time
In the end if you don't find it
Everything will be alright
Track Name: No Path
Clouded in the light of wasted breath
I took you inside and told you secrets
Waiting on the wilderness to be the one
Days disappear in waves

Let it be known
There is no path to this home
let it be said
I'm only dreaming most of the time

As a child I was confused
When every direction is the choice you choose
It's hard to get along in this crazy world
When you're alive before the dawn is gone

Let it be known
There is no path to this home
let it be said
I'm only dreaming most of the time

Searching the darkness for refuge
Or any old place to hide
Somewhere where no one will find me
All that I want is to be gone

Let it be known
There is no path to this home
let it be said
I'm only dreaming most of the time
Track Name: In Sunlight
One by one your monsters tremble
All the ghosts inside your head
Love is strong and if you let it
It will find you in the end

Through the days of cold and darkness
Will your lonely soul prevail?
I will lift you through your burdens
and be the wind underneath your sails

Oh my God, I think I've got it
All the love in the world I need
In sunlight, right above
Darkness behind

Through the years I hid my failures
and everything that I took from you
Let this lantern keep the silence
Let the world bloom in front of you
It takes so long

Oh my God, I think I've got it
All the love in the world I need
In sunlight, right above
Darkness behind
Track Name: On Display
World, just like a broken record
Spinning in infinity it never ends
News, no matter what they say
Same fucking story, different day

When will we learn to turn the page?
Alive before the light bends

Fire, rages in the East
The land of kingdom come and hallelujah
War, he can taste it in his veins
They never should have come when they never left

But what remains is the taste of gold
Alive and on fire

Don't let me be alone tonight
The world is on display
Don't let me be alone tonight
The human race is racing

God, Alive before the heather
Wanted what is right and what is his
But I know, that there will come a day
When we lay our weapons down for good

Don't let me be alone tonight
The world is on display
Don't let me be alone tonight
The human race is racing
Track Name: Complicated Light
Waiting on the wind
Holding down the line
When everything we give comes back in time

If we had forever, how would it feel?
I wonder how we got here?

All the world is shaking
Tied to a string of complicated light
and heroic things

I want to be with the living things
High upon a TV screen
Oh my, there's mountains left to climb

If everything just ends
and we had to start again
Take your hesitation
and throw it on the wind

If we had forever, how would it feel?
I wonder how we got here?

My head is heavy
Weighted with the night
Of emptiness in dreams
That we keep out of sight

If we had forever, how would it feel?
I wonder how we got here?

I want to be with the living things
High upon a TV screen
Oh my, there's mountains left to climb
In all her dreams she sees the colors of every living thing
Painted pictures in black and white and empty conversations
I want to be there
I want to know her
and see her name in lights
Oh my, there's mountains left to climb
Track Name: Creature Comfort
Love, afraid of the things I feel
Even if this isn't real, we made it here
I know, we built these castles from gold
and greatest stories ever told
Made this home

All the boys and all the girls
In every city, all around the world
You hear their heartbeats sing their sirens song
The future is open wide

My ghost has never left the sight of me
Compared to who I want to be and the way it goes
I am mistaken through the misery
Every single part of me, but you'd never know

All the boys and all the girls
In every city, all around the world
You hear their heartbeats sing their sirens song
The future is open wide

I've found a way to escape my dreams
Fill them up with finer things
and no more pain
This isn't just a creature comfort
Track Name: Remain A Mystery
I remain a mystery
Even in my own mind
There are rows and rows of houses
You could find me if you had the time
I wanted to see you with your back against the wall
I know it's the right thing

Annie and the evidence
Waited on baited breath
Only for a sense of longing
Because she knows what it takes
I know it's the right thing

Somewhere in the distance
The water leaves the well
Time begins again, and collapses on itself
I know it's the right thing
Track Name: Every Missing Piece
My brother in arms, my companion
I wonder where you are in the wilderness?
The dreams we shared together are alive in there
and though I cannot see you, I hope you're doing well

All the world is waking up without us
Every missing piece foes unnoticed
Who will be there for us?
When you come back home

Mistaking every lost feeling
With the fear I'd let you down
Like all along I was just waiting
To sing the song we both knew the words to

All the world is waking up without us
Every missing piece foes unnoticed
Who will be there for us?
When you come back home

Somewhere in the emptiness
and the vacant space of time
There is a memory of a moment
I keep it in my chest

All the world is waking up without me
Every missing piece foes unnoticed
Who will be there for us?
When you come back home
Track Name: Forever Fine
Walk past the meadow
Through the fence of the overgrown pine
Though their shadows cast some darkness
I'm forever fine

Through the years of thinking backwards
I keep my head up still
You can ask of my failures
But they haunt me here
I'm forever fine

Luck would have it
I'm falling in the arms of someone understanding
You can keep me warm
But this emptiness I've yet to command

When you walk, do it slowly
Let the air breathe you in controlling
You can ask all your questions
Will you ever really know them?
I'm forever fine

Hoist your flag above the rail
Let the one's who love you see it
You can try to count your blessings
But it's better just to live them
I'm Forever Fine
