Track Name: Embers Return
An ember, a spark
Explosion in the dark
The embers return
Didn't take too long to burn
A glimmer of hope
When all the sheets are soaked
The embers return
Didn't take too long to burn
Track Name: Blue Blaze
Perched up in the deepening shade
I caught a glimpse of the blue blaze
As it dove into the water
and disappeared beneath the surface
Blue Blaze
Perched up in the trees again
Dangling silver scales and fins
In a flash it swallows its prize
A sharp, long beak and dark eyes
Blue Blaze
Track Name: Absinthe
Do we crave to hear of defeat?
Slaves to repetition
Incomplete evolution
Is this history doomed to repeat?
Slaves to repetition
Incomplete evoltuion
Track Name: Fog on the Downs
instrumental
Track Name: Dropdown
Inclined and dazzled
by flashing lights
When you're locked in place
Sitting upright
As anticipation builds
there's creaking beneath
and it breaks as we turn
and you can't see your feet.

You drop down in the dark
Feeling like your heart might stop
As you're thrown back with the turns
There's nothing to discern.

You're trying to gain some
presence of mind
But the stars all mask
what's in front or behind
Then you're pulled to one side
as the path unfolds
You feel yourself plunge
and you tighten your hold

You drop down in the dark
Feeling like your heart might stop
As you're thrown back with the turns
There's nothing to discern.
Track Name: Indifference
You're not old enough to indicate
a lifetime's understanding.
You back off from the slightest thing
that may just seem demanding.

Dust yourself off
There's stil stime to mature.
Feel your way out
You were just on a detour.

You find yourself wasting time
worrying your wasting time
But you know you've got talents and
wasting them's a crime.

Dust yourself off
There's stil stime to mature.
Feel your way out
You were just on a detour.
Track Name: New Lens
instrumental
Track Name: Out of Focus
So out of focus
with goals that go unnoticed.
The fiery stars blend with the dead leaves
and it's so hard to get a grip on the here and now

And you only get one time around.

You've made your checklist
but you're too lost in the mist
The mirror's face reflects the endless
things you must do that will all go undone

And you only get one time around.
Track Name: Shot to Start
I try to push myself
feeling beyond help

I need a shot to start
and hope that I won't lose my heart
a seeing eye guide in the dark
Will you provide the spark.

You can do the same old thing
but you know what that will bring

I need a shot to start
and hope that I won't lose my heart
a seeing eye guide in the dark
Will you provide the spark.
Track Name: Sunshine in my Eyes
I've got sunshine in my eyes
I can't see 'cause I've been blinded
I've been so optimistic I can't stand myself

Sunshine in your eyes
Sunshine in my eyes

You've got sunshine in your eyes
like shards of glass
your mind refracted
Colors come back so jumbled
they make no sense

Sunshine in your eyes
Sunshine in my eyes.
Track Name: On the Verge
Persistent need
to rush through the present
Complete the task
and forget it
Now the time has gone
because you let it
Standing on the verge of the end
