Track Name: Sky Blue
Wait for yourself
I'm still believing
Stuck in time with you in tears
And it's more than I could ever ask for
Melancholy shine
I can't define

Out of sun and out of daylight
I'm out of moonlight
Without a night-light
Out of style and out of free love
Without a true love
In a dream undreamed of

I could look through a window
I could look through a piece of glass
I could tell you what's going on outside
But as soon as I let you know
Just as soon as I speak, alas!
Then you'll know that you've died

Faith will remind you everything is true
If time were a color it would be sky blue

Transparent lines
Have no direction
Doesn't mean they didn't try
They're out of sun and day and moonlight
They're out of starlight
They're out of starlight

I could look through a window
I could look through a piece of glass
I could tell you what's going on outside
But as soon as I let you know
Just as soon as it comes to pass
You will know that you've died

Faith will remind you everything is true
If time were a color it would be sky blue
Blazing in the bottom of a diamond flame
Never the same...

Viewed from above
We are like starlight...

Strange dreams reflected in your eyes
Held captive by an angry star
I hear your soul give off a sigh
'Cause after all, that's what dreams are

Give me a lighter and a box of matches, flint and steel
I'll decide just how this fire will be started
Flames make it brighter in the home my mind has been for you
We can watch it burning down and see it glow sky blue
Track Name: Dig Up
Where do I stand in the astral scheme of things?
I am no celestial body and heaven won't give me wings
My mind's telescope only works through introspection
On the outside lookin' in, lookin' out, lookin' in

I am buried so deep within myself
Will you be the one to dig me out?

Even all the sights and sounds of new places
Refuse to banish the doubts my mind it chases
Do you even remember the last time you could smile?
Maybe you do, it's just that you haven't in a while
Still, I do not believe all is in bad fortune
On the outside lookin' in, lookin' out and lookin' in again

But I can't see far from inside my heart
No I can't see far from inside my heart
No I can't see far from inside my heart
No I can't see far from inside my heart

I am buried so deep within myself
Will you be the one to dig me out?
I am buried so far down. Please dig me out
And save me from myself

If I dig up from the bottom
What will I find?
I would rather treasure than bones
Treasure than bones

Golden sun and a shiny silver moon
Fills my chest until the top overflows
If I dig up from the bottom what will I find?
I would rather treasure than bones

But I can't see far from inside my heart
No I can't see far from inside my heart
No I can't see far from inside my heart
No I can't see far from inside my heart

No I can't see far from inside my heart
No I can't see far from inside my heart

I am buried so deep within myself
Will you be the one to dig me out?
I am buried so far down. Please dig me out
And save me from myself
Track Name: Whirlwind
Caught up in a whirlwind
Spinnin' out of control
When I step outside
It's gonna be uncomfortable

Disorientation has got me holdin' on
Stability shaken when I'm fallin' down

Still spinnin' in circles
The clocks are windin' down
When my hand moves an hour
Only the seconds will sound

Disorientation has got me holdin' on
Confusion dependency lingers too long
I need a fix and some sleep to cure the symptoms
Stability shaken when I stand and fall back down

Can't stop the shakin'
I just keep holdin' on
I can't stop the shakin'
I just keep holdin' on
I just keep holdin' on

When I see the coast it will be clear again
Free of the chaos I have been livin' in
Standin' all alone at the bitter end
Only time will tell if I can transcend

When I see the coast it will be clear again
Free of the chaos I have been livin' in
Standin' all along at the bitter end
Only time will tell if I can transcend when I'm fallin' down
Track Name: The Place Where the Sun Never Sets
Scorching heat over sandy plains
The wolves are howling my name
Still I don't answer their bloodthirsty cries
Fever's getting harder to bear
The wind won't whisper in my ear
No one to tell me what it is to be wise

I'll keep list'ning for a signal in the breeze
To direct me to the place where the sun never sets
I'll keep questioning my purpose constantly
Until the point is reached and the static clears from my head

Isolation brings me closer to the truth
But I got no one to tell it to
My thoughts are my only company
Longing for shelter and a brighter setting
Diff'rent from the dark where I have been dwelling
Moving from the desert into the community

I'll keep list'ning for a signal in the breeze
To direct me to the place where the sun never sets
I'll keep questioning my purpose constantly
Until the point is reached and the static clears from my head

No life no love or pain
No colors in the picture frame
No sunlight, no sunshine
No tears no loss or joy
No happiness to fill the void
Too numb to feel alive

No life no love or pain
No colors in the picture frame
No sunlight, no sunshine, so sunshine
No tears no loss or joy
No happiness to fill the void
Too numb to feel alive

I'll keep list'ning for a signal in the breeze
To direct me to the place where the sun never sets
I'll keep questioning my purpose constantly
Until the point is reached and the static clears from my head
