Track Name: Matching Scars
This is where we fall apart
But at least, at least it's a start
Hold my hand – embrace the stars
Hearts are racing – matching scars

Could you be the one that bleeds
A color deep and bright
Could you be the one that bleeds
Bleeds with me...

Since we've opened our eyes
Thunderclaps – no surprise
Frightened now but it's ours
Feel the burn of matching scars

Could you be the one that bleeds
A color deep and bright
Could you be the one that bleeds
Bleeds with me tonight
Track Name: Six Is One
Knocked out – it’s what you want
It isn’t what your all about to do
Black and blue
Stay the course
This will be so very good for you

Outside it’s all burning
Countless matches on the floor
Your blacked out and yearning
Your back leans against this door
For hours or centuries
Time isn’t what you asked for
I’m getting the gun
Six is one

Knocked down – that’s what you want
It isn’t what your all about To do
Black and blue – stay the course
I will be so very good to you

Outside it’s all burning
Countless matches on the floor
Your blacked out and yearning
Your back leans against this door
For hours or centuries
Time isn’t what you asked for
I’m getting the gun
Six is one

Your fires are burning
Countless matches on your floor
Your blacked out and yearning
Your back leans against this door
For hours or centuries
Time isn’t what you asked for
I’m getting the gun
Six is one
Track Name: Darkest Hour
Scattered dust settles in the room
In twilight's lust and drunken moon
Breaking all the rules that kept them straight.
And there he stands saying "hey" again
Just like a friend, push it down and then
You say goodbye and go your separate ways

And she can't wait until the Darkest hour
Another lifetime meant to be his flower
And she can't wait until the darkest hour
Another lifetime meant to be his

20 years turns into 20 more
So don't look back but what you're looking for?
A chance to change back to another day?
Then there he is in a photograph
And she let's go, let's herself collapse
Under the weight of their lives betrayed

And she can't wait until the darkest hour
Another lifetime meant to be his flower
And she can't wait until the darkest hour
Another lifetime meant to be his
Track Name: Feather Bed
I am gathering twigs and branches
Before the daylight passes
I will build us a bed of feathers
Where together we can dream forever

For your love tonight
I’ll burn this fire bright
And hold to you so tight
For your love tonight

I’ll mark a path straight to me
Where the stars will guide you to me
Never letting you stray or wander
This night sky takes us under

For your love tonight
I’ll burn this fire bright
And hold to you so tight
For your love tonight

You’ll come for my love.

For your love tonight
I’ll burn this fire bright
And hold to you so tight
For your love tonight
Track Name: The Black Sea
I settled down
Before the wave had crashed over me
Then I clutched the ground
Before I was swept out to your sea….

I’m...I’m
Drowning in your sad eyes
I’m...I’m
Counting all the goodbyes

Drifting back to shore
There is more that was never counted
And I myself am sure
That there’s some among me that doubted

And how long can it be
Before I sink in this blackest of seas?
Before the winds command
That these sands of this coastline bury me
I’m...I’m
Drowning in your sad eyes
I’m...I’m
Counting all the goodbyes
Track Name: Marshes
Summer marshes
Cattails waving in the fire light
In the white light – it was twilight
She was still – her body cold
Something wasn't right
Heartbeats double time
She was a friend of mine

This is a caress
and now it's got to stop

Summer marshes
Tall grass sways in the moonlight
The air was high and so was I
Held her hand as we fell apart and I began to write
Transmissions working overtime
She was a friend of mine

This is a caress
and now it's got to stop
Track Name: Silver Thread
Wrap me in your spider web
Weaving words that were never said
Pull me down until there is no air

Tightening on your silver thread
Breathing lost on your blackened bed
Hold me closer than you’d ever dare

Stun me soft with your bite
So that I might sleep through the night
Like a moth I fell into your trap

Following all the shining lights
I flew into your web of dark delights
Tangled here I wait to be unwrapped

What the spider does deny
With a silver thread he ties
What the spider does deny
Web of secrets in his eyes

Wrap me in your spider web
Weaving words that were never said
Pull me down until there is no air
Track Name: Hawks
He’s before you
Fears before you
Pain’s before you
Rage is before you

He’s inside you
He’s behind you
Pains’ beside you
Flames inside you

Free yourself - it’s time to
Leave the cell and fly through
Oh...
Track Name: 100 Days
You’re my favorite kind of place
You are the light behind my face
But you’re the anger that befalls
You are the dreams behind these walls

100 days, 100 days
Go to sleep for a 100 days

You know I’m not like you
There was a time when I thought maybe I’m though
But if I listen to what you say
Then maybe we will be OK.

100 days, 100 days
Go to sleep for a 100 days
