You thought you made A winner’s trade To keep a half life on the shelf Erratic ways And up for days You keep your secrets to yourself You just want to see how much it takes to be A nice dependency on poison therapy The same old ghost In week old clothes A picture always in your head Is getting clear Then disappears Reminded dream already dead You just want to see how much it takes to be A nice dependency on poison therapy Despite my best intentions despite my own design I fall for your inventions and questions every time
2.
And so begins the game they always win These drugs that get you so high And so you play, they’ll make you anyway No matter how you decide In a hospital where I can see a million miles away Goodbye Cause I’m so far from where I was uneven yesterday Another pill inside It’s getting clear and as I disappear Into an orbit that’s all mine Another toast and if you’re looking close You’ll see me floating down the skyline In a hospital where I can see a million miles away Goodbye Cause I’m so far from where I was uneven yesterday Another suicide
3.
It's never the same A different game And always when you're on A feeling to belong to again It's harder to see And for you to be On your lonely run Circle around the sun back to me And all was said tonight Down through stars and satellites You're catching the light from a distant moon Still staring the whitest open bloom Falls down And feels all around Trying and finding The feeling you thought had disappeared Is all you feel
4.
I’ve seen the world in all of its rare beautiful disguise Will I be the one that’s out of sight or out of mind? I feel my thoughts, emotions racing fast You tell me that it’s never going to last I know it always seems to disappear from here Before I ever let it get too near I’ve seen the sky come crashing over and cover everyone Still somehow left you standing, staring at the sun It’s picturesque they’ll jump your coattails and ride And circle around the ones you divide You speak to them in so many ways, they say They’re hoping that you never go away Now with head and feet back firmly on the ground They’ve found because of you a better world around

Nocturne #2 01:45
She The sea beneath the sheets Swimming out to sleep Dreams of black and off-white Go Silent as the snow Reflected through the window On a winter’s twilight This is the last night of all time To see that it ends on the same sign Shy Violet as the sky The clouds that pass you by A world of colors streaming Stay The night begins to play Despite no coming day Somewhere your heart is dreaming This is the last night of all time To see that it ends on the same sign
6.
Every day they bring another Medication under cover Dreams from pills of every color Separate us from each other You turn it on Now I start to feel it once again Watch the sky around you start to bend Only to see you Fall away from me And I see you The silhouette hides a dream The feeling in the air That means so much Could disappear Before you breathe I thought I’d heard all the stories Voices call out silent for me Pictures spin on air before me Give attention then ignore me You turn it on Now I start to feel it once again Watch the sky around you start to bend Only to see you Fall away from me And I see you The silhouette hides a dream The feeling in the air That means so much Could disappear Before you breathe
7.
Storms 01:51
So good to see you And sorrow to see you All the saddest things And storms that you bring Quiet in the way that you pass by
8.
Rain 02:33
Change is coming around For a chance to be alone in sight Whole world is crushing down Caught up in a web of our lies Watch the rain falling down Sitting at the window where we slept Hear it all around town You’re happy now with someone you met And the days just slip into weeks As I drink myself into another mind Where I don’t have to think about you Or the feelings all the time Feel the ground and it’s under my feet As I slip and fall into another dream Where I said I was sorry for it all And see you happy again It was only a dream I found it in my sleep Once that I tried to see and follow
9.
Drifting inside your mind Slow from dreams awoke to find A tower wooden sail reminds me Ocean at high tide it’s a high time we’ve tried Ho hi wavesong, the shore behind me Wooden mast aimed toward the sun Crash a wave, another one Navigate, communicate to find me This hand is worn a hundred times A record tide we have Ho hi wavesong, the shore behind me I can feel the undertow And sea wind-tickled aqua foam Throw away the anchor that binds me No wind is blowing, I’m slowing to rest Ho hi wavesong, the shore behind me
10.
Nocturne #1 01:45
Sweet sleep is falling down Sweet dreams and starry sounds The wide-eyed, silent sky is open now Heavens sings the sweetest things around All the stars up on the hill Are slowly raining down upon your window sill And all the things you’re dreaming of Are painted in the lights in the sky above And you can see Reflections in the moon The way things ought to be The night’s wide open bloom
11.
Whether or not to play Whether or not to say Whether or not to feel Whether or not it’s real Whether or not to stay Whether or not to keep away Whether or not to kneel Whether or not to heal Whether or not to see Whether or not to be Whether or not to play away It’s better not to say It’s better not to speak Try to stay awake Try to stay a week Only forgotten days Only forgotten ways Try to make the deal Then try to make me feel How would you like to see How I’d like to be How I’d like to stay away It’s better not to say It’s better not to speak Try to stay awake Try to stay a week Only forgotten days Only forgotten ways Try to make the deal Then try to make me feel How would you like to see How I’d like to be How I’d like to stay away
12.
And so it ends The game you never win Your head is spinning around instead And nothing seems to follow Another lens And no defenses left Lying in your bed Only feeling hollow See it now The story is closing in Push it back and then Wait until tomorrow Feel it now The last few things to see Holding onto me And I can’t seem to follow I’m thinking of place It wasn’t like it is So many ways to live So many things to love What are you thinking of? Why it only comes too late The final seconds shared The last thoughts we bring There’s nothing left to sing There’s nothing left to say Now as I’m floating past the door A million things or more I’m feeling grateful for
