Track Name: Isolation
I've got so much to say but I just don't know how to say it.
A consciousness suppressed and shut down deep within us.

So little time to find, are we just faking each breath to save our lives?
So little time to find a reflection we'll stand by.

We show the truth inside, when nobody's looking.

Stop running away from the voice that keeps calling, the voice that keeps calling you.
To start taking your aim, hold fast in this life, and break down your pride one final time.

To walk a different way, sustain each second that I'm breathing,
In restlessness I'll seek to find all we keep within us.

So little time to find, are we just faking each breath to save our lives?
So little time to find a reflection we'll stand by.

We show the truth inside, when nobody's looking,
We show them what we're like, when nobody's looking at us

Stop running away from the voice that keeps calling, the voice that keeps calling you.
To start taking your aim, hold fast in this life, and break down your pride one final time.

All in a moment a dream can be stolen, are we not too far gone?
All in a moment a dream can be stolen, what keeps us moving on?
All in a moment a dream can be stolen, what keeps us moving so slow?

We fear a distance from the world that's right in front of us, from any kind of man who'll never try again,
We fear a distance from the world that's right in front of us.
But isolation is the key and it's the catalyst for any kind of man who'll never try again,
We fear the distance when we're moving so slow.

But when I look at you you're never moving on.

Stop running away from the voice that keeps calling, the voice that keeps calling you.
To start taking your aim, hold fast in this life, and break down your pride one final time.
Track Name: Satellites
What we built before kept safely away from the prying eyes that turned to stone that seek the lines of weakness in your soul.
And it's all around, I can hear them calling me out.
But I'll close my eyes until the sun goes down.

And I had got it so wrong, still searching for a better way to be the man that I was meant to be.
Oh to not be lost, to give and not count the cost.
I'll close my eyes until the sun goes down.

When satellites are sleeping, see how our world can turn, unconnected from the things we see but don't discern.

I know there's hope in the unknown and not what could have been. Now I find strength in words that made no sense before, like a new stone turned.

Awoke to a song from years ago with ears raised, the whole world had changed beneath our feet as we wished it away.

We wished it away...

I know there's hope in the unknown and not what could have been. Now I find strength in words that made no sense before,
Like shadows of our future selves we set our hearts, to find the call.
In a flash of life a new horizon breaks and darkness falls from sight.

What we built before the storm, never kept us safe at all, stop running from the light that will guide us (home)
Yesterday has come and gone, and we were never safe at all, stop running from the light that will guide us (home)
Back the way I came so freely, it's time to sing the song that's in me and wash it all away.

What we built before kept safely away from the prying eyes that turned to stone that seek the lines of weakness in your soul.
And it's all around, I can hear them calling me out.
But I'll close my eyes until the sun goes down.

For those who understand just what it takes to fail,
For those who understand just what it takes to fail.

Find what's really ours, together and never alone.
And truth will not be found in blood and stone, but heart and soul.
Track Name: Cirrus
He stands next to me as the sweat pours, as the note rings, have we said our final word tonight?
And as he turns to leave there's a moment where our eyes meet long enough for us to see he's scared.
I'll be the light that will guide and inspire you to forget the sirens so they don't blind us or take our breath away.
And there is a line between us and the rest of them, we're certain to fly up in the cirrus skies that keep our dreams alive.

Take me to a place where I knew best, where the words roll off my tongue and simple lines I should have sung,
will take me to a place where I knew best, where the words roll off my tongue and simple lines I should have sung don't haunt me.

Our lives tread the lines hey provide us yet we try so hard to lose ourselves along the way.
There comes a time in life where your heart beats slow and empty with regret of every missing day.

So please don't let this go.
No please don't let this go.

So tell me the truth for a change and I won't say a thing, there's something scarce about the city air that guides our feelings home.
As shadows split the skyline, we write words to bind us, lines that helps us know where we're to fall.

Take me to a place where I knew best, where the words roll off my tongue and simple lines I should have sung,
will take me to a place where I knew best, where the words roll off my tongue and simple lines I should have sung don't haunt me.

There is a time and a place to be grateful,
(Bury the burdens and re-discover the words)

So please don't let go,
So please don't let go,
No please don't let go,
So please just let go...

Take me to a place where I knew best, where the words roll off my tongue and simple lines I should have sung,
will take me to a place where I knew best, where the words roll off my tongue and simple lines I should have sung...
