Track Name: Colours
Call on me beyond the grey
I still believe it, I still believe it

Your heart is missing from this fragrance
Season’s scents covered in snow
Stone statues covered by the fall’s crisp
Translates stagnant breathing in the Arctic
Soliloquising bliss

We’ve been waiting

We wait
Under all the upsets
We wait
Through fire and the smokescreen
Burn away fluctuating temperaments
I was never gonna play from the outset
No, I’m sick of these games
I’m sick of how we all condemn and complain
Why can’t we all just get along?

This is a calling
This is a warning
I’m renascent in succeeding to be different

I’m not paralysed in arrogance
I’m just confident in what isn’t the end

I’m not afraid to be alone
I’m decadent on my own

I've laid the canvas down
Brushing strokes with fragile hands

These eyes won't let me
These hands are shaking
I'm moving closer
To letting these colours run

The only reason
I ever walk away
Is a selfish incentive I devised for myself
So I never hurt again

I bide time in the cold
As a means to an end
As a way to express the misery I know
I know

Turn it off so I can survive
Let the colours run in my mind

Call on me beyond the grey
I still believe it, I still believe it
Call on my beyond the grey
(Call on me) (From the grey)
Call on me
I still believe it (From the grey)
I still believe it (I still believe it)

We wait
Under all the upsets
We wait
Through fire and the smokescreen
Burn away fluctuating temperaments
I was never gonna play from the outset
No (I was never gonna play)
I’m sick of these games,
I’m sick of how we all condemn and complain
Why can’t we all just get along?
Track Name: Dreamer
My mind is open wide
To the lovers in my dreams
I'm sick of finding comfort
Tangled up in someone else

These dreamers are alive
I see my future, gleaming in their eyes
Every breath we take becomes much lighter

And the apparition of these ghosts
I see them now as they draw close
They haunt me now, but not forever
Filling the room with such light air

It’s time I take control
Find a way to lead my own
Keep the memories of my
Friends, lovers, ghosts

When I close my eyes
Mistakes I've made play like
Motion pictures in my head
Over and over

Oh sleeper
Watch the clouds roll overhead
Toss a coin in discontent
Tomorrow is where this all ends

So take a breath

This will all be over
We're all waiting for the changing wind
But I am not changing my mind, shake this illusion
And come out the other side
It's like I'm a giant; the world is made of stone
Throwing rocks up at my head, made of all I've ever known

These silhouettes unknown and frightening
All lined up waiting for the changing wind

I'm fighting with the man in the mirror
An affliction of old wars
Cut deep inside my heart
The reflection
The reflection of his scars

My mind is open wide
To the lovers in my dreams
I'm sick of finding comfort hidden behind these false scars
I’d rather face my demons instead of never knowing just where they are

These dreamers are alive
I see my future, gleaming in their eyes
Every breath we take becomes much lighter

And the apparition of these ghosts
They haunt me now, but not forever

Keep the memories of my
Friends
Lovers
Ghosts

Oh, sleeper
Watch the clouds roll overhead
Toss a coin in discontent,
Tomorrow is where this all ends

I'm fighting with the man in the mirror
An affliction of old wars
Cut deep inside my heart
The reflection
The reflection of his scars
Track Name: Everest
Its something in the way you move that tailors my sorrows
Something ‘bout the way you speak entices me near
Everyday’s an episode of euphoria calling me here

Burdened by a passion
I cannot understand
different are the hours
Between our ocean’s sands

Burdened by a passion (Illiterate in liberation)
I cannot understand
Different are the hours (Solicitude over our conjunction)
Between our ocean’s sands

Its something in the way you move that tailors my sorrows
Something ‘bout the way you speak entices me near
Everyday’s an episode of euphoria calling me here

Is there something you’ve to tell me?
What did you expect/could you expect from me?
I’m just a person imperfect and broken
So now, you sit me down
And offer an explanation
“Listen to me lovely
I just want you to feel safe,”

Lovely
Creeping in my head like mice are maybes
But if I came back tomorrow to see your face
Would you have the courage to hear me say:

“Clouded doubts in my mind but I know I’ll choose you this time,
Clouded doubts in my mind but I’ll choose you every time,”

Its something in the way you move that tailors my sorrows
Something ‘bout the way you speak entices me near
Everyday’s an episode of euphoria calling me here
Track Name: Redsky
Hide the curtain
And let the confidence overtake the fear
I’m spinning ‘round in circles forever searching
Anticipating skies reigning down on me

We’re trying to reach out
To the horizon over the city lights
But will we make it out of here?
Make it out alive

Open the door (to another realm)
The sun still can shine all the way from here
Pardon the intrusion but I don’t want to be here
‘Cause I can feel myself being swallowed by a foolish fear

I want to live far from serrated and blinding moons
Let the visions bleed
Redsky come over me

What have you done?
The floodgates are open
Spilling over me – boundless emotion

Am I a monster if I come out alive?
Either I'm a god, or my guard's just too high

I hold my tongue
But stay true to my word
Hands bleeding on this double-edged sword
Is it bad to keep this bottled inside?
The internal pressure keeps the world from my mind

Its time to hit rewind

Face to face with the people looking down on me
Time has shown what I've known all along
The wrath of the Redsky, is where I want to be x2

We don’t wanna be another casualty
Casualty

Open the door (to another realm)
The sun still can shine all the way from here
Pardon the intrusion but I don’t want to be here
‘Cause I can feel myself being swallowed by a foolish fear

I want to live far from serrated and blinding moons
Let the visions bleed
Redsky come over me

We’re trying to reach out
To the horizon over the city lights
But will we make it out of here?
Make it out alive

Shattered bones
Won't break my soul
I'm letting go
Of everything
You meant to me
Track Name: Z
It’s lurking beneath my skin
A slow decay
Errors in full abundance
Did you even really know me?

It vibrates in my bones
Disharmony
Shaky fingers caress these plastic shapes
I will escape

Eject, eject!
There’s an error with the playback
Aural signals being lost in the feedback
Their harmonies now razor wire (wire)

Visually they’re not quite scared
To admit they’re unprepared
And I think that they’re better off waiting for a moment to, decay
In the quiet, the quiet of discord’s disarray

Humble abode
Let me walk on my own
Boxed in these four walls with nowhere to go
I seek an exit
From the pressed palms on my face
Disregard
The magnitude of violent restraints
Trepidation flowing through my veins

How could you say that its all in my head?
If sins were silk sheets then you’ve made your bed
I will rise from the pain you bestow
I will rise from below

Eject, eject!
There’s an error with the playback
Aural signals being lost in the feedback
Their harmonies now razor wire (wire)

Visually they’re not quite scared
To admit they’re unprepared
And I think that they’re better off waiting for a moment to, decay
In the quiet, the quiet of discord’s disarray

And let it burn
(Let it burn)
Set these fears alight
Ticking clocks don’t heal my mind
They’re nothing but toys to the divine

I swear to you
I’ll never do it again
With idle time and frozen eyes
I swear I’ve learnt my lesson this time

How could you let me go?
Conscience was the killer, the killer
The space between the everlasting

Keep me so close
Pain is temporary

Eject

Visually they’re not quite scared
To admit they’re unprepared
And I think that they’re better off waiting for a moment to, decay
In the quiet, the quiet of discord’s disarray
