Track Name: Silhouette
I've been waiting so long for a moment that defines us.
So long, a silhouette was standing right beside me.
We were almost one, but we don't belong.

While some rise like Kings, you hide like a ghost.
Scared of what's alive in those hearts, beating so hard, the balance that could bring.
Torn by two lives, while your shadow seems to roam on the darker side.
I for one will never see the way your eyes could stare right through me.

Follow me home, I will lead you from those dark ghosts,
Follow me home, I will lead you from those dark ghosts,
Whose shadows fade in early light.

When I look down skies of vapour and clouds are all that lie beneath me now.
Awoke in time to get away, but I can't slow the sunrise down.
How wishful was I?

While some rise like Kings, you hide like a ghost.
Scared of what you'll find in those hearts, beating so hard, the balance that will bring.
Torn by two lives, with the tendency to roam on the darker side.
I for one will never see the way your eyes could stare right through me

Follow me home, I will lead you from those dark ghosts,
Follow me home, I will lead you from those dark ghosts,
Whose shadows fade in early light.

We are defined by every single moment that shapes our lives.
Old flames will fall like drops in open water, burn no more.
Our lives are defined by every moment when,
Our shadows fade in early light.

These streets spill out like arteries, there is more to life than our enemies.
These streets spill out like arteries, there is more to life than our enemies.
We rise like Kings, while you hide away.
Track Name: Safe to Speak
Is it safe to speak, or is the world listening?
Is it safe to hide, or is the light too strong tonight?

I can't believe that this is happening again, the world is outside of my window yet it's them whose looking in.
They teach you not to play with fire but they don't define the context or where it seems to apply.

Let's be honest with ourselves, we are getting nowhere here.

We sleep too easy, there isn't time to fix the problems that we have.
So let's run for our lives, an open mind won't set alight our flame tonight.

Turn down the lights, whisper that you love her then hold her tight,
But these words escape me like I've lost every word in my mouth.
I believe that the problem lies deeper than we ever thought it would.
They teach you not to play with fire but they don't define the context or where it seems to apply.

Let's be honest with ourselves, we are getting nowhere here.

We sleep too easy, there isn't time to fix the problems that we have.
So let's run for our lives, an open mind won't set alight our flame tonight.

How long will it hold, there's wolves outside the door.
How long will it last we've tried all this before.
She is there in every dream I have inside of me.
She lies next to me, she is there in every dream I have inside of me.

Is it safe to speak, or is the world listening?
Is it safe to hide, or is the light too strong tonight?

We sleep too easy, there isn't time to fix the problems that we have.
So let's run for our lives, an open mind won't set alight our flame tonight.

Whilst words escape me, I'll search for answers,
If they don't show me, I'll find it myself.
Track Name: Ghost in this Place
No-one knows if you're running or waiting for the chance to follow,
a fallen dream that will anchor both your feet to where you are, right where you are.
And don't forget the wisest words you know can keep you from the grief that's setting in.
So choke your burdened cries and from your side remove the thorn.
The heart grows weak when poisoned by a day that never dawns.

There's a ghost in this place, it haunts the day.
There's a ghost in this place, that holds the meaning of these broken years.

All alone the spirit hovers like a mist on the void, afraid to go through.
Afraid to shed new skin you're takings steps but stay where you are.
Right where you are.
Now giving in feels like a way to make your plans unfold, from the life you know.
You feel invisible to the people your affections hold, your flesh and bone does not appear transparent to the world.

There's a ghost in this place, it haunts the day.
There's a ghost in this place, that holds the meaning of these broken years.

Scars will not show before wounds are gone,
when the sun rises you'll know you're holding on.
Scars will not show before wounds are gone,
when the sun rises again, you're holding on.

Don't set it up to watch it fall.
It sooner or later does and that will bury me under it all, the weight of it all.
Track Name: Ash & Embers
Somewhere along the line we all fall behind.
Fighting off our fears in places we can't stay.
It leads us to a place where the light of life only burns away.

Watch it burn.
Watch as everything you love turns to Ash & Embers slowly fading out.
But it's not the end.

If every good man dies but we don't ask why,
If the more you feel the less you want to say.
It leads us to a place where the light of life only burns away.

Watch it burn.
Watch as everything you love turns to Ash & Embers slowly fading out.
But it's not the end.

Are we alone? Every broken face will look the same to you.
No we don't belong, this is not our home we're only passing through.
Like a shadow day that rolls away, and it's always gone too soon,
with our hope.

Watch it burn.
Watch as everything you love turns to Ash & Embers slowly fading out.
But it's not the end.

Don't you know, who we are?
