Track Name: Daisy
Summer begins to fall
Stumbles into a crawl
Winter brings copious air
Swallowed in time
As it comes to pass
I see that you’re still there
We’ve come through the seasons

Silence is in the air
Seasons were underprepared
For sunshine on December’s eve
Unbearable light
Oh, we closed all the doors
Sheltered from all our storms
We’ve come through the seasons
For reasons unknown
We will exist together
All through the seasons

When we’re in springtime
I can hear the daisies sigh
Out in the hills my dear
My favourite side of you
Mull it all over up in the stratosphere
We’ve come through the seasons
For reasons unknown
We will exist together
All through the seasons
Track Name: Blind So Blind
If I could see you
I’d be your saviour
But I’m not able
You say you miss me
I don’t believe you
‘Cause you’re unstable
My heart’s an organ
It’s old and broken
But you still played it
It’s almost over
I see it coming
And we can’t save it

Blind So Blind
We will never see the light
My dark mind
Keeps us going into the night
We get blind and make it right

If there were lovers
Who were not lovers
Could they just fake it?
And if they could not
And found another
Could they erase it?

Blind So Blind
We will never see the light
My dark mind
Keeps us going into the night
We get blind and make it right
We get blind and keep it right
Track Name: The Things
No regrets
No elation
No reports of information
Quiet on the line like a positive mind
That’s been spitting on the ashes of this town

Suicide…off the table
Ready and willing
Feeling able
More or less but I must stress
It’s important to remember that we look our best

I lost everything I once knew
The things that we do to forget
Hoping it all was true
Knowing it all was a trick
The things that we do to forget

Put on a face
Drown it in prose
Never let on what they already know
The great deceiver of those branded believers
Who sympathize

Psychology only goes so far
Drugs can work
Or you can go to a bar
Step from your thrown with your positive drone
Admit to what you’re feeling
Go carve it in stone

I lost everything I once knew
The things that we do to forget
Hoping it all was true
Knowing it all was a trick
Everything I once knew
The things that we do to forget
Hoping it all was true
Knowing it all was a trick
The things that we do to forget

She used to live in an old brick mansion
On the edge of town
Her father was a prominent businessman
‘Till he became unwound
They found him face down in the riverbed
With a broken heart
And after the funeral they lowered him into the ground

I lost everything I once knew
The things that we do to forget
Hoping it all was true
Knowing it all was a trick
The things that we do to forget
Track Name: Twenty Odd Years
Twenty odd years and where are we?
Gone our ways and caused a scene
Honestly, here we are
On the phone and in the car

What you all must think of me
I’m not so melancholy

Talk this through
No time at all
You have work
I’m on a call
Next time through I grab the line
You tell yours
I tell you mine

What you all must think of me
I’m not so melancholy
Track Name: Raccoon
Raccoon crossing the road
Never reach city lights or his humble abode
If I were an animal, I’d want to be like him
But I’d never cross the road
I’d just stay where I am

Road-kill
Filling up the streets
When blood soaked SUVs are on the go
Road-kill
Nobody understands
They just need a helping hand across the road

As light reflected off your glowing eyes
I could tell my friend that you were paralyzed
Oh, I swerved out the way but we’d gone too far
When you died that night underneath my car

Road-kill
Filling up the streets
When blood soaked SUVs are on the go
Road-kill
Nobody understands
They just need a helping hand across the road
Track Name: Keeper of Night
Frozen in darkness
Was it all meant to be
Evil and torturous
Dark and disorderly?
All of this picturesque formal attire weighs me down
Working in ovens
And runways on busy streets
High schools are ill equipped
Labels all worry me
What have we done with the ones that were meant to be useful to us?

My dear, there’s nothing to fear
The keeper of night has come under light

Here I am cast aside
Thrown to the pseudo wolves
Maybe it’s what I wear
How fat is suitable?
Are there words written down telling us all who to be?
Oh lord, I know there is!
These lyrical cannibals!
All of this food for thought
It’s almost inedible
Still it’s been shoved down our gullets until we acquire a taste

Oh to be ignorant
Blissfully confident
Stand at the doorway to hell only peeking in
How can we change all the comfort arranged in our miserable lives?
Well, find what empowers you
Shelter it from the group
Don’t you be tempted by all those who claw at you
All of those lost in the dark gaping wounds of the mind

My dear, there’s nothing to fear
The keeper of night has come under light

Standing in fire just to keep warm
Light from the fire
Darkness is born
Shadows can fall in all kinds of ways
But those cast in evil
Shattered in day

My dear, there’s nothing to fear
The keeper of night has come under light
