Track Name: The Dawn
The Dawn

Lyrics: Ohhh!
Track Name: Daylight
Daylight

We've been strangers
We've hid away
We've shied from danger
So where could we stay
Here in this truth
All that remains
Movement must be
The strength that sustains

My fist unfolds
Your hurt I'll hold

Here we are
Standing in the rain
Setting sail with the winds of change
Burning bright with the break of day-
Light breaks the dark and we are
Not the same

We've longed to stay here
Half a heart away
Content with anger
These words just complain
Near to the truth
But never in the fray
Movement must be
The strength that sustains

My fist unfolds
Your hurt I'll hold

Rain's flooded my eyes
Love's flooded my eyes
Love's flooded my eyes
Track Name: Ocean
Ocean

When you find out you're afraid of the ocean
Waves splash, they touch your skin
But you can't, you can't see where they end
On the shoreline, you see an endless horizon
Worlds clash as the tide comes in
And you don't, don't know where to begin
Over and over

Coming closer
Fading further away
All with the same glimpse of the unknown
As waves crash over and over
In and out of control
And you just don't know how deep
How deep this goes

When you find out you're afraid of the ocean
Doubt swims in, it pulls the current
And your mind, your mind gets caught in the spin
Over and over

When you find out you're overcome by the ocean
Waves drown, they drown all you've been
And you can't, you can't comprehend
Can it be now that love is motion
Love is motion
Over and over

Coming closer
Fading further away
All with the same glimpse of the unknown
As waves crash over and over
They drench your soul
They soak your soul
And you just don't know how deep
How deep this goes
Track Name: Quickly I Take My Time
Quickly I Take My Time

I don't want her to know I don't know me now
I see something better but I can't let it be somehow
I say goodbye but I know I've never longed to go
I struggle to stray from her eyes
They seem so like home

I'll take my time as fast as I can now
Search my mind to find how to flee this doubt
Search my heart to know how to hold one now
I spin out and let, let my pride unfold
I let go

Is running away the way to relieve my doubt
And if I should stay would the past still find me out
I'm so afraid that my flaws will fail me now
Why do I stray from this voice
The sweetest sound

I'll hide away in truth til it heals my heart
Let it learn to beat for more than mine

I'll take my time as fast as I can now
Search my mind to find how to flee this doubt
Search my heart to know how to hold one now
I spin out and let, let my pride unfold
I let go...so I can know
How to hold a heart

I don't want her to know I don't know me now
I see something better
Can it be somehow?
Track Name: Of Architects and Entropy
Of Architects and Entropy

I can't see those trees anymore
I can't see that field
I can't see if we care anymore
But for material

Orange and black they wear
Beneath hardhats they stare
As metal gleams with sunlit glare
And ground breaks
Landscape laid bare
Foundation rises, we breathe the burning air
We're not satisfied but will fortune truly take us there

Let it break down
Let us build for more than the dollars where we'll drown

Failure finds me where
No one sees, do I dare
Let my flaws find the morning air
And let you shine on all my secrets
Days drenched in disrepair
Can't rewind, must relearn where
To run when the weight I bear
Draws me in to this despair

Let it break down
Let the scalpel tear the skin, I trust it now
I trust you now

Let me break
Everyday, everyday
Let me break

Let it break down
Let the scalpel tear the skin, I trust it now
I trust you now
Track Name: All I hold
All I Hold

When I am alone
I am incomplete
But when I'm here with you
Maybe solitude is all that I need

Alone in the multitude
I'm standing right next to you in an empty room

Whether night or light
Whether sun or cold
You are all I hold
You are all I hold

When I'm far from home
Maybe home feels obsolete
'Cause when I'm marked by truth
No shelter houses me

If I'm just pondering what with this day to do
Or searching just for simple food
Track Name: The Fall/The Flight
The Fall / The Flight

Over the edge
So scared, so unsteady
I leapt from the ledge
Was I ready?
Was I ready for you?

Freefall
Freefall

I fall into the deep
Here with you and this uncharted air beneath me
I'm powerless to prove myself
When you already see my faults
Limitless sky and I, so lost

Freefall
Freefall

Over the edge
So scared to take this pledge
To be an open door and let you pour this light
On my darkest corridors
But I can't be the me I've been before, I start to see
You pledged first your heart to me
And here I fall, Oh I fall

Free, I fall
Free, I fall
Free, I fall
Free

Now, in my descent, after all my sight is spent, I see
In this surrender, in this sweet release my restless heart assures me
Letting go, I've lost control to you, yet finally I find that I am free
But instead of sinking to the depths, my soul is swelling up and up
Rising to the heights and I fall, I fall into flight
I fall, I fall
And you are by my side
I fall, I fall
And in your heart, I'll hide
I fall, I fall
Free
Track Name: The Coming Night
The Coming Night

Hurting eyes see only pain
Dying skies pour only rain
We find solace knowing
We're all the same

And the cold wind will find us
This long road reminds us
These days are all burning
But through the fire
We are learning

All these lives that we've seen fade
The sands of time still drift away
The night seems steady growing
But we hold on to

(Today) You don't have to wait til your world is falling
(Today) Don't be afraid though the hurt's still calling
Breathe from your heart
Breaking with the scars of the dark
Shaking us awake inside
Breathe in, breathe in
Alive.
Alive.

Memories are all that's left of the names
We see shattered skies
But true beauty never breaks

And the cold wind will find us
This long road reminds us
These days are all burning
But for more, we're still yearning

Breathe from your heart
Breathe in.


You don't have to wait.
(Today) Don't be afraid.
Breathe from your heart
Breaking with the scars of the dark
Shaking us awake inside
Breathe in, breath in
Alive.
Alive.
Track Name: Daylight Outro
Daylight Outro

We've been strangers
We've succumb to the shadows and the shade
We've shied from danger
And now we're met with all that we've misplaced

But the rays of the sun
Wash across my face
I have come undone
This haze is broken by the daylight
And I can hear the hurt here in your cries
But I can see the hope stirring in your eyes
When I open mine so I can see

The rays of the sun
Wash across my face
And I dare not depart this place
Unchanged
Track Name: All I Hold (2007 Closet Demo)
All I Hold

When I am alone
I am incomplete
But when I'm here with you
Maybe solitude is all that I need

Alone in the multitude
I'm standing right next to you in an empty room

Whether night or light
Whether sun or cold
You are all I hold
You are all I hold

When I'm far from home
Maybe home feels obsolete
'Cause when I'm marked by truth
No shelter houses me

If I'm just pondering what with this day to do
Or searching just for simple food
