Track Name: Evergreen (feat. Steven Ostroske)
Cross the line a few times just feel what it’s
Like to defy who you’re supposed to be every once in a while
From time to time I know that I can be reckless
But I’m telling you it’s worth it ‘cause the look on your face is perfectly

Priceless (priceless); when you can’t seem to speak
And all your words are so weak to me
Speechless (speechless); take what you’ve said in the past
And go shove it in your pipe

Everything that’s in our past has made impressions on
The paths that we’ve walked, the dreams that we’ve talked of
It’s so hard to breathe when all the air surrounding
Is so god damned grounding to the routine swing of things
But I can help you; I can help you see
A little more clearly
With a subtle sip of clarity
Drop everything you know and just be free

Well they can carve the bark of your tree, carve your evergreen
Canvas, but I will be unshaken by the practice they preach
Step out of line and make a scene just to
See what I mean ‘cause the look on their face will always be

Priceless (priceless); when they can’t seem to speak
And all their words are so weak to me
Speechless (speechless); take what they’ve said in the past
And make them shove it in their pipe

Everything that’s in our past has made impressions on
The paths that we’ve walked, the dreams that we’ve talked of
It’s so hard to breathe when all the air surrounding
Is so god damned grounding to the routine swing of things
But I can help you; I can help you see
A little more clearly
With a subtle sip of clarity
Drop everything you know and just be free
Track Name: Eventide
Why does time seem to move so slowly?
All the tides flow in and the sand beneath our feet is the only thing
Keeping me from running after you, breaking the rules until the
Sun goes down; wave after wave of the ocean crashing is the only sound

There’s a presence of a permanent essence
That leaves your smile glowing effervescently
Follow the line that’s defined by the way you’re looking at me
And bring you closer now, bring you closer to me

All the lights fade out and I’m listening for the words you don’t have to speak
Your eyes give everything away that you’re trying to hide, trying to keep from me; (well)
I’ve seen, and I’ve known, and I’ve fallen; for the way that you lure me in with your ruse
Just know that we’ve got nothing to lose

There’s a presence of a permanent essence
That leaves your smile glowing effervescently
Follow the line that’s defined by the way you’re looking at me
And bring you closer now, bring you closer to me

I’ve seen the way you can light up a whole room
And I know there’s only one thing left for me to do
So I’llI hold you tight
And we’ll watch ourselves unfold into the eventide

You are the only thing that’s keeping me together and
You can take what I’ve made best and make it better
Track Name: Satellites
I don’t think that I’ve ever understood
Why you would call just to hear the sound of my voice until
This very moment and I hate that I
Can only learn the hard way; never poised from anyone else’s mistakes
Rewind these tapes; and play them all back just to see your face
Take one more gaze into your eyes and I’ll pretend that that I’m alright, (but...)

The air is so thick and my lungs feel like they’re caving in
Constantly I’m waiting for the day I get to see you again
Maybe if I put it down on paper,
My hands will stop shaking and my words will stop wavering

You have slipped behind the silver lined veil
And you have left me with this feeling
That the world won’t stop reverberating and the ground won’t stop shifting
‘Cause I can’t do this on my own,
But I know I’m not alone if I keep a part of you alive in me
I’ll be here looking to the sky
And I know you’re up there somewhere looking down from all the satellites

Maybe you have forgotten everything, but I can still
Remember your patience
Thank you for killing me with kindness, teaching me to stand straight,
And how a smile can go a hell of a long way
It’s such a shame that I didn’t get to say it quite enough
But I will always believe that every part of you is with me, (but...)

The air is so thick and my lungs feel like they’re caving in
Constantly I’m waiting for the day I get to see you again
Maybe if I put it down on paper,
My hands will stop shaking and my words will stop wavering

You have slipped behind the silver lined veil
And you have left me with this feeling
That the world won’t stop reverberating and the ground won’t stop shifting
'Cause I can’t do this on my own,
But I know I’m not alone if I keep a part of you alive in me
I’ll be here looking to the sky
And I know you’re up there somewhere looking down from all the satellites

You will be my cherished escape
Track Name: Faceless
Not everything’s always been this way;
Bend the rules back and they’ll sway in your favor
I can’t believe that it’s a game to you, play by play
The taste is so bitter, but the liquor won’t save you now

Everything I’ve ever known about you’s been erased, it’s
Haunting how you’ve only changed into a liar, a deceiver and a person; so faithless
Has it been so long that you’ve buried whats left so you can fall from grace again
How could you be so tasteless; crooked and distorted, so hollow, so faceless

I’ve can see what you’re trying to say,
but your body’s painting every single shade of gray, can’t you por-
-tray your thoughts without being so vague
and be straight with me for once in your life so I can
Break free from the undertones
and separate myself from the unknown
My faith has been stretched too thin
and the only way home is to find my self again

Can’t you confront me with some decency, face to face
Let me let go and I’ll let you be on your way
Cross your fingers for a promise, cross the truth with the times that we said goodbye
But hold your tongue before you say another word because
Not all wounds heal with time

Everything I’ve ever known about you’s been erased, it’s
Haunting how you’ve only changed into a liar, a deceiver and a person; so faithless
Has it been so long that you’ve buried whats left so you can fall from grace again
How could you be so tasteless; crooked and distorted, so hollow, so faceless

I’ve can see what you’re trying to say,
but your body’s painting every single shade of gray, can’t you por-
-tray your thoughts without being so vague
and be straight with me for once in your life so I can
Break free from the undertones
and separate myself from the unknown
My faith has been stretched too thin
and the only way home is to find my self again
Track Name: I Believe
Shed your skin and let go of the cold, gray hues of your past and see
I made a promise I’m gonna keep
Touch my lips to your fingertips, know that no matter how hard it may seem
It’s easy to believe in me

I believe in an air that grows thin, that lets you breathe easier and easier again
I’ve been weaving this idea that it all transcends into the balance and then
We’ll walk the bricks of these streets and fall into the life of these city lights
As you breathe out, it breathes us into the night, into the night

Burn the bridges that tie you to the old, frayed moments elapsed and leave
The embers to fade gradually
No one thing can keep holding you down; fall free through the clouds and then
Try to feel something real again

I believe in an air that grows thin, that lets you breathe easier and easier again
I’ve been weaving this idea that it all transcends into the balance and then
We’ll walk the bricks of these streets and fall into the life of these city lights
As you breathe out, it breathes us into the night, into the night

Keep your eyes closed
Feel the wind blow
Softly inside of you, take a deep breath a few times
And leave your last life behind
