Track Name: Melting Candle
I am just passing by
Don’t know what I’m saying
Eyes to the sky
Fly on the wall
Asleep on the floor
Under the table
Sinking into the ground

Rules are made to be broken
Love’s just a token of insecurity

Melt on, melting candle
This is more than you can handle
Burn out, love, burn forever
Burn out, love, burn forever
Just another dead deer in the heather

I don’t know what this is
But this isn’t freedom
Glimpses of heaven
With spiders inside
Always trying to find
What you left behind there
Try to escape what’s gone

Melt on, melting candle
This is more than you can handle
Burn out, love, burn forever
Burn out, love, burn forever
Just another dead deer in the heather
Burn out now leave forever

Go home love burn away now
There is no room for you to stay now
Go home love burn away now
There is no room for you to stay now

I think it’s time that you let it go
You know, you don’t know
How to keep your flame alight
When it burns low
You go, you leave
Vacate

And I won’t anticipate your safe return
You will never learn
Let your candle burn
I will melt away to a better shape
Track Name: Aquarius (Grey Areas)
Can you feel the rain?
Pouring down on us again?
Underneath we’re the same
Symmetry running through our veins

Can you hear, in the silences
I’m whispering your name again?

One day I’ll call out to you
Follow through
Grey areas

Can you hear what I say?
Silent words these hands betray?

Out of our minds
With that electric feeling
We’ll redefine
We’ll be re-aligned

Aquarius in the waves
Our time will come
When I will save you and we will run
These grey areas around us now won’t last forever

Aquarius, ride your wave
Our time will come
When I will save you and we will run
These grey areas around us now won’t last forever
Track Name: Dilute
I am so watered down
I’m so uninspired to keep holding on
Life beating us down
Deep underground now
For way too long

Find, find me the will
To keep it together for one more day
Like a tree falls in the woods
If I fall alone I’ll be there to stay

Time, stuck in my mind
I’m trying to find a way out of this
I was on solid ground
Now I’m slowing down
In the evening mist
Track Name: Ghost
And if you’ve forgotten, let me remind you
Of all the years I took to find you
Now it might be easier for you to let go
You can just go home
But this is all I know
You stole away all my younger days

But it’s about time
You give back what’s mine
Even if it’s broken
It’s about time
Let go

And if you’ve forgotten, I’ll help you remember
I keep your ghost here, she’s trapped in amber
She only escapes when I let my guard down
And I’m falling around in my weakest hours
I find her hiding in my mirror

But it’s about time
You give back what’s mine
Even if it’s broken
It’s about time
Let go
