Track Name: Axis Non Perfecta
We live and so lament
This is our sentiment
We creep into the grave
A lesser man should slave

Working for a dream
Never to be seen
Shrouded in a dream
Wishing to be seen

We soldier on to see
A worthless majesty
We shiver in the sun
As does the lonely one
Track Name: Last Sunday
Surely this the end will be
Stars will fall into the sea
Blind to all that you have seen
Cursed to perish in a dream

The shadows on the wall
Are fading slowly fall
The beauty of it all
Is fading slowly fall
and fade away in time

Smoke is pouring from your eyes
In a deadly paradise
Turn to see what you have done
Sold to pleasures in the sun
Bound to follow the machine
Love the filth and words obscene
Flaunt the shackles on your hands
Do as prophecy commands
Track Name: The Descent
You are only clutching thorns
As your leather gloves are worn
And you gaze upon where you have been
Things you whisper in your sleep
And the secrets that you keep
Will you ever walk this way again
You have nothing left to love
As you walk the fringes of
What was once the only place you knew
With a shoulder to the shore
You will follow the allure
Of finding where the lies are few

Where shadows lay so long
You speak in silent tongues
A fever in the night
To follow hidden lights
Behind the silhouettes
Like faces you forget
In briar you will lay
And you will waste away

You will shiver in the sun
You will be the only one
To depart from here to the unknown
You will wander out into
Where the vultures bite and chew
On the dusty meat and broken bones
Track Name: Building To Heights
A pair of stars would know you better
From all the scars left by bloodletters
And yet you stand despite our failing
One thousand hands at your unveiling

We condemn our own end

So we build up to
These heights to view
Ourselves with eyes
Divine and spy

A bride to time so many winters
Your bones entwined with steely splinters
Your shell remains an ancient symbol
Through all the pain and burning kindle
Track Name: Knives
Steal a kiss above the chasm
Feed each other in the dark
We are seldom seen together
These emotions are too sharp
They will cut through skin and tissue
To our frantic beating hearts
And so these conditions govern
They have stopped us from the start

Slowly as the days go
All these treasures pass me by
Floating through the summers
All these glimmers catch my eye

We are softly killing hours
In the refuse left behind
To the servants of disaster
We are stowaways in time
When the bodies in the bushes
Disappear beneath the ground
We return to sanctuary
To the blackness we are bound
Track Name: Reach
Dead dreams circling faster
Dead leaves cover the past
Lost time traveling backwards
meets you back in the last
lifetime leaving the present
Timelines holding you back
Darkness filling your vision
Bright stars fading to black

You open up your eyes
look for something new
You open up your hands
reach for something good
You open up your eyes
look for something new
You open up your eyes
reach for nothing

Slowly easy and cautious
this way into the dark
Follow all of the signals
never leaving a mark
Hold fast traveling blindly
reaching out for a guide
Somehow finding a passage
on to the other side
Track Name: Summers
wayward lost in music playing
clouds of blue smoke vanish like hopes

cherish it now while time allows you
heartless and free one day you’ll be too

we’ve come this far I know you are
changing into nothing do you

cherish it now while time allows you
heartless and free one day you’ll be too
