Track Name: Roseate
Goodbye
In waves the message rang
through the sea.
The pelicans froze in the air,
they saw what was no longer there.

Goodbye
Went inland but saw statues fall,
reshaping to the golden dawn,
some things the same,
but the landmarks gone.

These city walls our fathers built,
they have crumbled now
But I can't let go

Ω Θεέ Μου
(Oh my God)

New designs
grew ten stories high, and I
saw angels from the highest height.
I almost touched it, but not quite.

Then I saw
a crack in the wall:
a sign
the flaw that let in a new light,
as new machines came into sight.

These city walls our fathers built
they have crumbled now
But I can't let go

These city walls our fathers built,
they have crumbled now
But I can't let go

Ω Θεέ Μου
(Oh my God)

It is blinding me
but I can't turn
away

It is blinding me
but I can't turn
away
Track Name: Out of Focus
All I was was wanting you
you were swaying too.
Drunk and running compassless,
like headless ostriches

Things are falling out of focus

Holding on to history
love, the absentee
And I all I was was wanting you:
There was nothing to do.

Things are falling out of focus

There was nothing to do
Track Name: Swan
Cast along the way,
spinning out in circles,
Waking decibels.
beckoning, beckoning for you

Evening light has past
thought I'd hear something at last.
Through the silence
I was beckoning for you.

I'm in love here, but I don't belong
I can touch you, but I can't hold on

Let me hear the swan sing
melody of mourning.
Sweeter than the silent
exit without warning.

Froze a memory
captured our love perfectly,
but ice in hand won't last
longing for the past

How did we get here?
Feel so far yet exist so near.
Darkness through I'm through
beckoning, beckoning for you

I'm in love here but I don't belong
I can touch you but I can't hold on

Let me hear the swan sing
melody of mourning.
Sweeter than the silent
Exit without warning.
