Track Name: Toggle the Fog
It's time to take our arms against the storm
Crash-landing on the surface
Of a brand new hope

It's time to take our arms against storm
Just take this feeling
and we'll let them know

Why so far away?
Not coming back today
Shattered glass in the tavern
Now you're stuck in the harbor

The crowd turns their backs to those of us who need
Fear takes control in anything that breathes

Why so far away?
Not coming back today
Shattered glass in the tavern
Now you're stuck in the harbor

Stuck in the harbor

Nautica: "Is my signal coming in clearly?"
Coast Guard: "Vessel back down, please turn around now"
Nautica: "Is my signal coming in clearly?!"
Track Name: Light On the Horizon
New shoes on the pavement
New shoes on the pavement on his mind
They say what the words meant
But he can't hear an answer of any kind

White light in the window
Streaming out from a lantern down the hall
He felt that he knew how
To stay grounded even through the fall

The room is getting hazier now and I feel
That its getting harder to breathe

Soft light on horizon
Wood cracks as he leans against the wall
Back and forth goes his mind
The soot settles, vision's coming 'round

The room is getting hazier now and I feel
that it's getting harder to breathe
The soot settles and I just can't say

It's getting harder to breathe
Track Name: Colossal Dissonance
She stood right in between
The sane and the obscene
She walked deep into the water
As the flames only grew hotter

Her intentions, they differ
The people only grew stiffer
They watched and stared wide-eyed
As their world would just collide

The Earth went pale and gray
Thats not, that's not what they all say
She's left and gone away
There's no going back

Thats not what she intended
We didn't listen
We did not walk the path she wanted
She showed us the way
But we didn't see it
We did not see her
We did not do what we were supposed to
Now look what it's turned into

Into:

The trees are old and dried out
The birds can't fly any farther south
The dogs have all gone and hopped the fence
While she sputters colossal dissonance

The trees are old and dried out
While she sputters colossal dissonance

The Earth went pale and gray
That's not, that's not what they all say
She's left and gone away
There's no going back
Track Name: Bury Me
Meet me at the crossroads baby,
We'll both go insane
Honey, I know you want it
I know you feel it
I know it's strange

Bury a part of your soul deep into the ground
Hear the wind whistle in your ear
You know he's coming
and you've only got yourself to blame

You're beautiful, but not enough for you (You wanted more!)
And honey, he's got money, those pockets ain't deep (enough for her!)
Wishin for her problem's to just fade away

Staring down the road she saw him
And she couldn't hide
She said "Maybe I don't wanna, cause I need ya"
He said, "Let's strike a deal":

She: "Take my soul I don't need it, my life's so worthless, I just don't want it anymore"
He said "Ok, your wish is my command, Just close your eyes"

Bury a part of me

Girl, do you really want to know?
Do you really want to throw your life away?

Do you want to know?
Do you want to bury a part of me?
Bury a part of me?
Track Name: Amberjack
Your head + The dashboard = Direct contact
The bridge gave way to the water bed
The muffled sounds, can't hear what they said?

The liquid fills your socks and shoes
Your heart pulses an irregular tune
Try to spit the water from your lungs

I can't believe I've been down this road before
All of my life you set termites to my core

Street signs and wind flash past your face
No chance, the current's left no trace
Wrong way, the crash was your mistake

I can't believe I've been down this road before
All of my life you set termites to my core

Cast desires away
Not listening anyway
Cast desires away
Cast off into the bay
Track Name: Oakburners
Sweet sleep passes through me
The sandman watches over me
A darkness enters with each gasp
As grains of sand slip through my grasp

He checks his hourglass, I toss and turn
This feeling deep inside me burns
Don't vacillate, no going back
Just sit and watch as I fade to black

Embrace the dark oblivion
It's the only passage home
Endless night, so obsidian
Within fear, there's always hope

Sweet sleep comes at last
All my problems seem to pass
Let this nightmare fade away
On the horizon there lies another day

Embrace the dark oblvion
It's the only passage home
Endless night, so obsidian
Within fear, there's always hope
