Track Name: Away
No one moves too far away
I will see all of you today
Dare to say that you were asleep
I will wait until we are in deep
Track Name: Sleep Cycle
Far beneath, far beneath, far beneath the earth I found
An endless sleep, a timeless sleep, calling all of us
Won't you wait, won't you wait for the trip that we'll take on
I don't think, I don't think that without you I'll go on

I'll go on

Look around, look around, is this all enough
For you, for me, for every one of us
Breathe in, breathe out, try not to lose control
Maybe I, maybe I, I don't need you to go on

I'll go on
Track Name: Calling
Turn around, tell me to begin
That way I knew you from within

And higher, how high can I reach ?
And higher, how high can I reach ?

A soft calling is what I'm waiting for

Called my name, now is it real ?
I'll be ready for your reveal

And higher, how high can I reach ?
And higher, how high can I reach ?

A soft calling is what I'm waiting for
Track Name: Waves
Caught between the waves of this numbing embrace
And I feel it all, touching me on my face

I wish, wish that it'll be gone in a flash
So I, I just wait for it to crash

I can hardly talk, but at least I understand
The words get to me, the world speaks through me

I wish, wish that it'll be gone in a flash
So I, I just wait for it to crash

I see the shore but not through my eyes
If only I had known, If only I was shown.
Track Name: Coastal Life
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Bones
Got you into your own grave
But you clearly dug it with me
I got told all the time
About the wall I'd have to climb

If I got back with all my thoughts
Everyone knows they'll fade away
I can't help but disobey
Break my bones see if I care
Track Name: In the Frame
Come again and feel again my mind above
And the sounds all around make me curl up
To hold myself, to withstand beyond all point
On my way, all I see is a part of you.

You can hold on to all you have, the way I did.
You can stop to realize, the way I did.
You can give into yourself, the way I did.
Surely that will do.

All I caught is myself trying to stay aware
And I made myself see why did I care at all ?
To lose touch, to fall down with you.

On my way, all I see is a part of you.
Track Name: Shut Down
This journey's been so long and why did I bother at all
And maybe I want much more, I think that it's worth the fall

And now I think I know how I feel, like something I'd drag around
Too many days now gone by, too many for me to count

Believe me I feel your way, but lately it's been a crawl
Cover me like before, don't let me feel shutdown

And now I think I know how I feel, like something I'd drag around
Too many days now gone by, too many for me to count
Track Name: Luna
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Lessons
Lessons from early days should've kept you satisfied.
Why would you want to know more ? You're a long way from home
So keep your questions to yourself, don't ask anywhere or anyone about what you have thought, it's what we were taught

Sort your stuff and we'll be going
Somewhere we'll try to stay sane
I lost track of all my belongings
Everything is losing it's shape

And you know what's happening,
they all have heard and talked about what you have done.
So you have become no one

Sort your stuff and we'll be going
Somewhere we'll try to stay sane
I lost track of all my belongings
Everything is losing its shape
