Track Name: Make it Right
I knew my world would come crashing down, if we parted ways
Sometimes I wonder if it was inevitable, like a predetermined race

I even saw the pieces come together, but I let them have their say
Blinded by my own point of view, I somehow drifted away

Make it right, I will make it right, I’m poisoned with regret
Make it right, make it right, I will take the uphill climb
Make it right, make it right, till my fading breath I will keep up the fight

I know you never really saw it coming (your way)
The twisted tidal wave
It hit you harder than I ever could’ve imagined
But you never said a word
By the time you came to terms that your world had shifted
I had drifted away

Make it right, I will make it right, I’m poisoned with regret
Make it right, make it right, I will take the uphill climb
Make it right, make it right, till my fading breath I will keep up the fight
Track Name: Constants and Variables
You painted the sky
with the colour of the day
maybe the prism can wait

mindlessly hum along
the radio as it plays
Your favourite song can wait

Each day drones along
Trying to clone itself
Nine to five, five to nine

Numbers and figures
In circles and squares
Seems like a never ending game

For how long
will you tell yourself
its just another day?

Oh how far
will it be
before you look to find your way?

Constants and variables
Oh how they play
stories they spin
and memories they break

Constants and variables
pause for one day
Just set me free
for my dreams are at stake

Years gone by
You toe the front lines now
Carrying the weight of the world

Looking back at your life plotted neatly on your desk
You wonder why you cued up for this

There were signs all along
You've always seen the cracks in the walls
You know it's now or never
Soon enough your fears they will take over
Track Name: Sky High
tapered smiles
veils of desperation
painted faces
bones of fascination

the finish line
it's lure and it's seduction
complex figures
clocks and determination

I can see now, through your eyes
I can feel now, your skin
I can breathe now, the air
I am free

becauase I'm sky-high
and I’m breaking away

evening skies
gradient of color
a wordless song
spinning through the atmosphere

countless shapes
emerging on the horizon
the play of light
spirals In creation

I've always had my faith in spades
creating time and bending space
Track Name: Leaving Words Behind
How will we run against the stroke of the darkest hour
Where will we hide when the earth is breathing fire

When will we know that it’s time for the game to be over
What will we say when the meanings have lost all their power

There, is no answer
Leaving words behind us

How did we miss all the warning signs and all the symbols
Where did we leave all the traces that one day could burn us

When did the final chapter leave its notice
What did we win by losing a silent witness

There, is no answer
Leaving words behind us

Oh when the lines were drawn
That’s when the troubles began
The odds against us
and the tables turned
We were pushed to the ground

It's time to rebuild
Brick by brick
We can turn this around
All that's lost will be found
