Track Name: Ender
You wait it out (it out)
Tell-tale signs showing the correct direction
Steadily going nowhere, steadily going nowhere
Waiting only for the ender, marking letter “return to sender”
You wait it out (it out)
The last time around we’ll be on solid ground
Steadily going somewhere, steadily going somewhere
Moving forward, unseen ender no “return to sender” letter
Remember the sender, remember the ender
Track Name: Where You Lay
Six feet down, into the ground, where you lay, today
You’ve become the departed one, I exclaim your name
Left alone, new tales unfold, but I’ve been blessed, so rest
Have no fear my dear where you lay today
It doesn’t seem like it should, I would take your place if I could
And I would, if I could...where you lay, today, where you lay, today
My tears fall, for your curtain call, but this high tide, subsides
Don’t you weep, for me, where you lay today.
It doesn’t seem like it should, I would take your place if I could, and I would
I wish it seemed like it should, I would take your place if I could, And I would, if I could…
It’s hard to speak, when you’re underneath, permanent sheets.
But you must believe, your absentee is now set free, in this grave
Track Name: In/Out Of The Sea
Dragging our feet, down a dead-end street
We shared a home together but nothing lasts forever.
Helpless and hopeless I dreamt of brand new taste to come my way
You swam to safety and I drowned in the sea
I searched for a reason, we changed through the seasons
Because you swam, this is where I am
Abandoned me then my dreams of a brand new taste had come my way
You swam to safety and I drowned in the sea
But here I stand, a new man and you’ve drowned in the sea…in the sea
I stand (I stand), a new man (a new man). I stand, a new man.
Track Name: Sentinel Circuit
Years beneath a suit to keep you same from harm, disarm
Layered and secure blame the paramour, layered and secure blame the paramour
Barricade to save face, armor for a fragile frame
Who will tear the suit and keep you safe from harm, disarm
Layered and secure blame the paramour, but what for?
Barricade to save face, armor for a fragile frame
Barricade to save face, armor for a fragile frame
Layered and secure, but this suit is old and worn
Layered and secure, blame the armor for the core
Layered and secure, but this suit is old and worn
Layered and secure, blame the armor for the core
Track Name: Ghost Light
Time and effort behind the scenes, ignored by patrons again
Still we stand, on this stage, but not for fame, not for fame.
The lights shine upon the stage and time, time goes by
Minutes feel like seconds, these moments we cherish, we cherish
On this stage, but not…not for fame, not for fame, no…
Track Name: Finite Youth
Misfortune has appeared tonight, and you ask why
Casualty at your feet, as you grieve
Face to the ground as a crowd surrounds…The water pours down
Blood on the pavement, an ambulance arrives
Rain falls upon the innocent as sirens fade away
Come the waves of uniforms like a perfect storm
You will speak of apologies for what you can’t ignore
Blood on the pavement and an ambulance arrives
Rain falls upon the innocent as the sirens fade away
A calamity has come to pass again, a calamity has come to pass again
Track Name: First Person Plural
When we proceed to seize and follow their lead
We’re taken into a realm of make-believe, at peace
But it’s not that way, for this ride we’ll stay
To grow so tired of the wait and try to better our days
Looking for the pieces to fall into place, when they fit so well, so well
Small paragraphs for us to tie it all together now
Line by line and page by page
Listen in for the language to come out aloud
Looking for the pieces to fall into place...
And you fit so well
Track Name: Providence
It’s unknown to you, even with a warning, you see it through. Sitting in a corner, you’re feeling warmer, scolding a former love. Different paths, ill-fated time, separation is the bottom line

Providence is calling…Providence is calling…Providence is calling

For you to move along and begin anew, to find someone to hold and to be true
Just see it through, There is nothing left to lose

Opened up the door, but not before you had cut the cord. Gentle hands upon you, your inhibitions flew, poetically true
With each breath, you take in now, adoration has come avowed

Providence is calling…Providence is calling…Providence is calling…

For you to move along and begin anew, to find someone to hold and to be true
Just see it through, You have nothing left to prove

Regret must be laid to rest, regret must be laid to rest, lest we forget…
Regret must be laid to rest (laid to rest) regret must be laid to rest, lest we forget.
Track Name: Mission: For The Times
We were chosen for the mission, to discover what no others have attained
And with steady aim, we’ll win the race
Flying high, absent fear. Beyond the atmosphere
Sending signals to open channels
We were chosen for the mission, to discover what no others have attained
And with steady aim, we’ll win the race
Approaching now with eager eyes, straight ahead on the prize
Sending signals to open channels
The eagle has landed obtaining its purpose
We touch the surface...at last…

We were chosen, we were chosen
For the sender. for receiver. for the times, for the times
