Track Name: Symmetry
Undergrowth. Plant your own seed.
Retrograde. Grow your own need.
Reality. Find your own time.
Purity. Feed your own mind.

The balance of my thoughts explode into the air
I have no room, no time to care
The baby girl I used to know
Was never given time to grow

Angel-proof. Lock your own door.
Eternity. Hate your own war.
Loneliness. Hear your own cries.
Emptiness. Close your own eyes.

The balance of my thoughts explode into the air
I have no room, no time to care
The baby girl I used to know
Was never given time to grow

The balance of my thoughts explode into the air
I have no room, no time to care
The baby girl I used to know
Was never given time.
Track Name: Darker Spaces
Do you remember me?
Wasn’t it just the other day that we would play laugh and sing?
Are you remembering
The way we used to be before I went away

Now it’s obvious: I never meant a thing you were just circling
Til you can step right in
Walk in my shoes and give me the news

Darker spaces, empty places
Manifesting and rejecting

Now I’m no longer part of what was my heart, it is over
Gone for just a blink
So quick to replace the space where you can fit
Am I not worthy of your time
All the good times just in my mind
Do I wake to find my friendship is valued far less than wine

Darker spaces, empty places
Manifesting and rejecting
Aware I’m creeping downward to where it’s warm and dark
Curled up like a baby girl I find a tiny spark
It shimmers like the starlight
I see right through your breath
I feel I’m growing younger: still closer to my death

I know the colour of my wall
Endless staring has told all
He opened up and shared his hue
His pale shade of blue

Embrace myself I try to control
Communicate with me and I’ll be whole

Whisper in my ear: tell me your fears and I’ll create them
How could this be, with friendships like these who needs enemies

Darker spaces, empty faces
Manifesting and rejecting
Track Name: Skyborn
You can not talk you have no voice
You have no way you have no choice
You sit alone the blackness breathing
You sit and wait and think of leaving

You try to hide behind my eyes
You can not tell what’s truth and lies
The edges are blurred the lines not clear
You only hear what you want to hear

Pull apart and fall to pieces
As time goes by the damage increases

The world moves on but you stay the same
Seasons come and seasons go But you stay the same
