Track Name: Fingers
Have faith in these fingers
to take me where I want to go
Put faith in the dreamers
Never one for letting go

But this shallow heart of mine
Grows tall and strong
Shadows and notions
A blinding light

I will follow you
With unwavering faith
The demands I put upon myself
I expect you to take

But this shallow heart of mine
Stands tall and strong
Shadows and notions long gone

So where the wind blows I follow
Yes where the wind blows I follow
I follow
Track Name: Ghost Behind
Seven days and lonely nights and hard times
Waiting for love, waiting for love
I've been tried and tested for so long
This cemetery of dreams is enough for me

I've been thinking about giving up
I've been thinking of living for this day
I've been thinking about giving up
But this Ghost behind the storm
Ghost behind the storm

Words been tried and tested for so long
Try to define love, if you can even find love
Don't get me wrong , I didn't mean anything by it
It's just you never seem to try

I've been thinking about giving up
I've been thinking of living for today
I've been thinking about giving up
But the Ghost behind the storm
Ghost behind the storm

I've been thinking about giving up
But I realise I'm not bold enough
I've been thinking about giving up
This Ghost behind the storm
Ghost behind the storm
Track Name: Fuel for Fire
Waiting for the light to come
All the distant memories I've won
Along the way
Waiting for the light to fade
All the distant memories of pain
Have gone away

I'm hoping that this time
Will wash away my life

All of the words unspoken
Promises made are broken
All of these lies are Fuel for Fire
Oh desire

Nothing quite as strong
Nothing quite as gone as my head
It started out so clear
Been clouding it now for years
With all these loaded questions
Seems I forgotten myself
Somewhere along the way

I'm hoping that this tide
Will bring me back my pride

All of the words unspoken
Promises made are broken
All of these lies are Fuel for Fire
Oh desire
This Fuel for fire
Oh Desire
Track Name: Flatlining
She -
"Please please wash my back
Wash the day away
I don't think I have the strength,
To make it through today"

"We could be Flatlining
Stars dying, just an empty hole in space
Where nothing moves but slow
Spins beyond control
When you're Flatlining"

He -
"Please please wash your mouth
Promises you've made are empty
I don't need another lie
to take me to paradise
I've got plenty"

"We could be Flatlining
Stars dying, just an empty hole in space
Where nothing moves but slow
Spins beyond control
When you're Flatlining"

Both -
"We could be Flatlining
Stars dying, just an empty hole in space
Where nothing moves but slow
Spins beyond control
Now we're Flatlining"
Track Name: Flow
Heartbeat keeping us all in time
Dead weight pulling me under
I will go where the angels go

Flow like a river
Flow river flow

This clockwork ticking time
Beats for us
Nothing infinite
Nothing definite
Apart from death of course

Flow like a river
Flow river flow
Flow like a river
Flow river flow
Track Name: Mountains and Sea
Born like angels from the sky
Hope never seems to die

After everything you've lost
Loneliness my only cross

Give me Mountains and the Sea
Something to believe
For the hard road ahead

Oh when everything is over
Will I look back with pride at what I've done
Does it even matter anyway
Is it just my fragile ego running away

Take from everything I've lost
Be prepared to bear the cross

Give me Mountains and the Sea
Something to believe
For the hard road ahead
For the hard road ahead

Never losing track
Never losing track

Of the Mountains and the Sea
Give me something to believe
For the hard road ahead
For the hard road ahead
Track Name: The Night
I was lost amongst the hills and driving cars
I only wished I could hold you in high regard

The Night was alive
I noticed you cry
The Night was a lie
I noticed we died

Do you still dance alone on Tuesdays
At least your trying
Oh God I gave up years ago
So throw me a line

The Night was alive
I noticed you cry

This Night was a lie
I noticed you cry
This night was a lie
I noticed we died
Before our time
Goodbye
Track Name: So Tired
I may grow weary on my feet
I may grow too tired now to speak
Travel corners of the earth
To escape this lonely curse

So tired now and I want to go
So tired now and I want to let go

We may throw stones against the wall
Never know which way they'll fall
But these names may break my bones
These names will make me whole

So tired now and I want to go
So tired now and I want to let go

So tired now and I want to go
So tired now and I want to let go
Track Name: One of these Days
In the morning light all is gone
This tangled mess is our making
The warning sign light goes on
I'm not yours for the taking

I'm built for speed I'm travelling light
I'm expecting to fly I'm expecting to fly

Don't bet your life on it
Don't be so desolate it's alright
It's only time passing and we couldn't have lasted
Because you held on too tight

I'm built for speed I'm travelling light
I'm expecting to fly I'm expecting to fly
One of these days
One of these days

I'm built for speed I'm travelling light
I'm expecting to fly I'm expecting to fly
One of these days
One of these days
Track Name: Golden Light
I wanted to be there
Wanted to know that I could fly
I wanted to see straight
Look these demons in the eye

Try believe in something
Always better than nothing to try

The Golden light
Free me from this skin
Golden light
Somewhere to begin

I want you to know this
I want you to know how hard I try
Move to the coast now
Takes me silently like a ghost now

Try believe in something
Always better than nothing to try

For the Golden light
Free me from this skin
Golden light
Somewhere to begin

And I hope that the revelation comes
My Dear
I wonder how long
Must I say this prayer

For the Golden light
To free me from this skin
Golden light
Somewhere to begin
Golden light
Need a Golden light
Track Name: Simple Secrets
I am a notion of love
A dark fading star
I am a well travelled wheel
Hoping to get far

And I know that it's simple enough
If you take the breaks
But my heart is on my sleeve
If that's what it takes
To keep your secret safe with me

I still don't know where i'm going
Can't remember where I've been
Like the flight of the bumblebee
I begin

And I know that it's simple enough
If you take the breaks
Heart is on my sleeve
If that's what it takes
Keep your secrets away from me

And I know that it's simple enough
If you take the breaks
But my heart is on my sleeve
If that's what it takes
To keep your secret safe with me
Track Name: Freedom Flies
When something isn't right
Warning signs blacken the night
Burn you like demons
Dead end dreaming
Never got it right

So I try to save the ghost
The thing I love the most
Try to say these words
Before Freedom Flies

Been trampled by youth
Foolishly proved never cover up in shame
The fear you learn to live with
To try and win this game

So I try to save the ghost
The thing I love the most
Try to say these words
Before Freedom Flies
Before Freedom Flies
