Track Name: The Trip
Climbing up a summitless mountain
With baggage on my back
I wonder how it came to be so heavy
When did I lose track

This trip used to be such a ride
I can still see it when I close my eyes
The pieces are easy to find
When I decide to go there

I was never much of a fighter
I tend to take it as it comes and go
But you know what I'd give to take it back
This time I don't even know

There's a hole in the atmosphere
Lifting us further away from the ground
Leaving behind the sounds
of our former lives
Track Name: Haze
Hey what's that you're saying?
You lost track of time?
For the price you're paying
I'll give you some of mine

Every day has an ending
Every hour flies by
When you're waiting for something to happen
A ray of light in the sky

Climb back to the surface
Find nothing has changed
Coast for a while with a cheshire cat smile
and then return to the cave

Soaking up last summer's sunlight
Sheltered from last winter's storm
Memories colder than fiction
Neglected and failed to keep warm

Climb back to the surface
Find nothing has changed
Coast for a while with a cheshire cat smile
and then return to the cave

On the edge of reason
Time stands still
Something is about to happen
Moving in for the kill

Climb back to the surface
Find nothing has changed
Coast for a while with a cheshire cat smile
and then return to the cave

Coast for a while with a cheshire cat smile
and then return to the cave
Track Name: Bombs
You came in from another town
You picked it up and you threw it down
Your eyes were following the road again
Then you became my only friend

Bombs are falling from the sky
and we're invited

When we were living on a cloud
The music always played too loud
You woke up to my golden voice
I gave you the illusion of choice

Bombs are falling from the sky
and we're invited

Bombs are falling from the sky
but we're in hiding
in hiding

Your eyes were flashing like a strobe
You wanted to replace the globe
This brings me back to my escape
I know that it's too little too late now

Bombs are falling from the sky
and we're invited

Bombs are falling from the sky
but we're in hiding
in hiding

Bombs are falling from the sky
and we're invited

Bombs are falling from the sky
Where are we hiding?
Track Name: Burn
Powerless, turning
You won't change a thing now
You're talking in your sleep now
And I am watching you, awake

Foundations, burning
Nothing we can do now
We're living on the edge now
There's nothing left to learn

I know that it's my turn
But my eyes are starting to burn
and I need inspiration, a dream destination

I know that it's my fault
That my wounds are covered in salt
But I need motivation, a dream destination

Resonate through this
Hold your breath a little longer
Your mind becomes a little stronger
and I am waiting by the door

Follow me into the unknown
Passages twisting and turning
Where there's a fire burning
There's something left to learn

I know that it's my turn
But my eyes are starting to burn
and I need inspiration, a dream destination

I know that it's my fault
That my wounds are covered in salt
But I need motivation, a dream destination

I know that things might turn
But my eyes are starting to burn
And I need inspiration
A dream destination

I know that it's my fault
That my wounds are covered in salt
But I need motivation
A dream destination
Track Name: The Daylight
With every waking breath
I'm waiting for the moment when I'll be
Pulled back into limbo
Pulled back into your reality
I'm counting down the hours
As they turn into days I'm lost at sea
Staring down the clouds
Ready for the sky to summon me

With every passing day
I'm watching as the moments slip away
Nothing I can do now
Nothing I can do to make them stay
Days turn into years
My fears have grown legs and they're chasing me
Back to the memories
I try to save for the night
When I am in control

The daylight
Awakes me from a dream
I could have sworn was real
The way I feel

Keep it alive
Dream through the morning
I'll keep you from falling away from my mind
Dream through the daylight
I won't leave my room til we float back in time
Dream through the winter
I'm longing for when it was easy and light
These memories aren't mine alone.
