Track Name: Reverse Migration
Down in the tropics winters have never been cold
Not even the whispers
I’ll suit up this year trading forests for piers, seeking snow
Against the will of my bones

Reverse migration, feathers adorn my sweet home
Returning the favors
The plans have been tailored and the glass has been cleaned once more
With fire burning my bones

Fallen leaves adorn this trail to mystery
Quiet streams still running to my mouth

Is it something I’m not that I’m afraid to find out
But my mind misses change, change to something I’m not
Track Name: Forget
Welcome in to my covert
No roof, no floors, frames or pictures
And no promises

I think I got it figured out
As I take a look at my bone white painted bedroom walls
I know I should have said goodbye
The seasons used to feel like one
Ours skins caressing clouds off dreams, leafs and perfectly blue skies
Now I can’t even feel my eyes

Clouded by the rain I held in for too long
Pressured thunderstorms now breaking through my eyes
I lost my compass now all I get to see is the floor

I think I saw you holding hands
It brought so many thoughts of past adventures and photographs
I think I used to say they lied
I wish that I could live a lie
But then again I think of all the things that made me run
I’m sure that loneliness was one

And all these pieces don’t construct my previous thoughts
They’ve been scattered and then filtered through my heart
What was my discourse
I throw my body against the wall

Is it true I didn’t care is it true that I just gave you away
Is it true my brain did hide what my heart was beating for
Just to let me forget
Track Name: War Is Kind
Lyrics inspired by Stephen Crane's book of poems War is Kind (1899)

One feels the air so suffocating
But war is kind, yeah war is kind
Swarms of glory dissipating
But war is kind, yeah war is kind

You fear seeing battle in his eyes
And shallow trenches can’t contain all the red and gold
My Dear
These men were born to march and die
Allowed to roam an empty plain to be swallowed whole
My Dear

Exposing youth to burning hearts
To half filled promises with dirt and marble lids as crowns
My Dear
But bless the sword that plows this land
The wrath of god upon us swift and flaring

They rode fast and mighty glistening
Leaving all behind
The colors at their door still waiting there
I see the silver flickering
Banners flying fast
The flutter in the sky announce the end

But poor bloody thing…
Track Name: Stormy Stormy Night
I’m planning a fair fight without you
My calendar has been crossed out in blue
Numbers trapped in threads of ink
Announcing expeditions too soon

But on a stormy night our bodies finally made a truce
But on a stormy night they knew just what to do

You glanced before you disappeared
I’m flooded by these senseless downpours
Could currents still affect your roots
Cling onto my crumbling youth

But on a stormy night our bodies finally made a truce
But on a stormy night they knew just what to do

And on a stormy night you knew just what to do
And on a stormy night these electric charges sheltered me and you
And on a stormy night the heavens screamed for you
Track Name: Fall
In my eyes a river is forming
It’s always been this way
In my mouth a whisper is forming
It’s always been this way
But I want to let go, want to scream
My throat is aching to make a scene

Just spare on your way
Spare me and I’ll be on my way

In my mind these thoughts are forming
It’s always been this way
In my heart this rhythm is forming
It’s always been this way
But I want to let go, want to scream
My heart is struggling to keep on beating
