Track Name: Realize
Think it's so hard / Another one, I'll see it through
Keep the door closed / Too cold for me, I'll keep it so

The night stands still
The night stands still

I didn't realize / I wasn't alone
I didn't realize / I wasn't alone

Empty clearing / The watch hand moves, a second gone
Every night so far / I'm up too late, I'll see it through
I'll see it through

I didn't realize / I wasn't alone
Track Name: You Can't Have It Both Ways
I came down from the trees
A flashing light, it blinded me
And here I would stand in harmony
It appeared to be holy

The angels drew near
Presented a bow to me
With golden arrows
And a sliver wreath

I'm running...

The lord came down
And he said to me,
"Did you think
that your love was complete?"

The ones that you seek,
They are far out of reach
The one that's within,
You will turn from again, and I said

You can't have it both ways
And I'll keep you at arm's length

You can't have it both ways
And I'll keep you at arm's length
Track Name: Weathered Skies
This isn't love / and I can't sleep anymore
Your time is up / you'll learn from us
Says 3 o'clock on my broken watch
I'm not alone / you're not at home

The bullet bites / and I bite it back
We're weathered skies / we're artifacts
Now shut the door / and come in close
Turn off the lights / you're mine tonight

I believe in ghosts / you were one of them

I believe in ghosts / you were one of them
Haunted by the present / I'm undone
You were once my home / I had a deed for you
Now they're all in a line / I won't wait (x3)

I need something real / to get me through the night
Shards of memories / smoked by candlelight

I believe in ghosts
Track Name: Tempest
My vision returns to me
As if from a solemn dream

Am I still out at sea?
All I see is crystalline

I am not awake
Is this not a dream?

Am I still out at sea?
All I see is crystalline

But I'm civilized
My soles are on land
You prophecized
The raging storm

I am not undone
And this is not complete

Am I still out at sea?
All I see is crystalline

But I'm civilized
My soles are on land
You prophecized
The raging storm

Come back with me
Return to the sea
I am the prince
Of your destiny
Come back with me
Return
