Track Name: Chains
Put your trust in me again. I'm not sure if we still are friends. So it goes the less we take - to be ready when the levee breaks. Wear those chains around your neck. Weigh me down. Wear those chains around your neck. Weigh me down. Wade into the river at night. I'd sell my soul if the price was right. When you turned to run - got shot in the back. We've been hunted by the aristocrat. Wear those chains around your neck. Weigh me down. Wear those chains around your neck. Weigh me down. Another casualty in the daily report. And on a better day you'd show up for court. My advice is give them what they want. When you're behind the counter at the restaurant. Wear those chains around your neck. Weigh me down. Wear those chains around your neck. Weigh me down.
Track Name: Long Long Long
I discovered in a cloud of doubt
what I knew all along.
I was so washed out I started to erode
and what was left was a skeleton.
It takes so long, long, long
to wear you thin.

I locked myself out of our own home
All the time I held the key.
Winds that were blowing weren't at my back
when all I needed was to change my tack.
It takes so long, long, long
to get you back.

I'll just have to wait.

To end in discord wasn't my intent
there's a future we have not met.
It takes so long, long, long -
it wears you down.
It takes so long, long, long
to admit I'm wrong.

And I'll just have to wait.
Track Name: Crab Apple
Crab apple, fallen fruit. Every action, a reaction to you and your sour mood. Bitter seed go find your shade. Grown wild you keep away. Forbid and forbade. Can you stay for long girl? Because I need you here - to rot my foundation and set your roots deep in the ground. Draw matters to the heart. Flowers weep in shadows, in the dark, 'cause we're falling apart. Twist your limbs - entangle me. Broken arrow missed the point to dwell. The splinter fell. Can you stay for long girl? Because I need you here - to rot my foundation and set your roots deep in the ground.
Track Name: Running
Heavy steps in worn out shoes with hardly any sole. Clouds are falling all around and I've got nowhere to go. Honey, keep on running. I run for cover. I forget just why and when and what beliefs I hold. Every turn I make it seems another dead end road. Honey, keep on running. I run for cover. Turned to face what fell behind and caught just a flash of a plume a burning pyre turning into ash. Honey, keep on running. I run for cover.
Track Name: Taken Flight
fading out of view
in the distance

just a speck of light
caught my eye'

And I could not let go
I could not forget.

you burned a hole
in my memory.
---------------------------------------
Now I know
what it means
to be on my own every night
In dreams you ask
why the tears?
But you have already
taken flight.
---------------------------------------
The scent of grass
on the breeze

Sent my thoughts
to stir

Of time fallen
down in the well

And feeling vunerable
and it hurt like hell
---------------------------------------
After all you were just
passing by.

And you've had
your stay

You'd gone on to stretch your legs

Where there's room enough for you
and so quiet too.
