Track Name: Circle of Light
I'm waiting here for you
To open up my eyes
To show me all that is sublime
Can we unravel all with time?

As we burn through this endless cold despair
The circle of light is slowly fading

Under endless sky
We rise and fall beneath these tides
Through echos of a distant time
All I seek seems closer than before

As we burn through this endless cold despair
The circle of light is slowly fading

I never wanted to let go
I never needed to be free
But the flowers you collect
Now you've gone to seek…

The circle of light
The circle of light is slowly fading
Is slowly fading…
Is slowly fading…
Track Name: Beneath These Waves
A Flash of lurid light
Reveals itself on every side
Illuminating past mistakes
Now we fall so deep

Give Me your hand
Fall beneath waves
Drown here with me
Till the end of our days

Still scattered, hiding
But I don't see you anywhere
A familiar tiding
Still I can't let you go

Give Me your hand
Fall beneath waves
Drown here with me
Till the end of our days

Fall Beneath these waves
Fall Beneath these waves

What subtle weaving
But still my eyes are closed
A soul still bleeding
Now we fall so deep at last

Give Me your hand
Fall beneath waves
Drown here with me
Till the end of our days
Track Name: Motionless
Underneath a haze lit sky
I search in vain for reasons why
There is no rhythm to your rhyme
Seems were running out of time

Devoid of any light
The sun has lived and died
In a silence so profound
This burden I cannot hide

Motionless we slip away
With a cruel hand we follow fate
Don't let resolve come to late
Our destiny wont remain…

I seek solace in your eyes
Yet it's something I can't find
Words you say I can't defy
Don't let our past become the lie

Devoid of any light
The sun has lived and died
In a silence so profound
This burden I cannot hide

Motionless we slip away
With a cruel hand we follow fate
Don't let resolve come to late
Our destiny wont remain…

Devoid of any light
The sun has lived and died
In a silence so profound
This burden I cannot hide

Motionless we slip away
With a cruel hand we follow fate
Don't let resolve come to late
Our destiny wont remain…

Don't let it slip away
Don't let it slip away
Track Name: Drifting
Light is fading
As soul's entwine
Broken Sigh's
As silence dies

Love and grandeur
In her Eyes
A Solemn glance
As silence dies

You say your drifting
far away from me
But I see a guiding light
That you cannot see

You say your drifting
far away from me
But I see a guiding light
That you cannot see
Track Name: In Severance
I gave you everything
But you needed something more
You tasted all I had
And turned it all to stone

You needed shelter from your storm
But you seemed to scorn my love so inconsistently
But it washed away with sin

In exile with bitter tears
Our destinies the same
I bare these chains around me
I bare them in your name

You needed shelter from your storm
But you seemed to scorn my love so inconsistently
But it washed away with sin

I needed just a little more time
But I saw severance in your eyes
I needed just a little more time
All I am was fading with your light

ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo
In the light of fallen fortune
ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo
In the light of fallen fortune

Don't you fade
Don't you fade away from me
Don't you fade
Don't you fade away from me
Track Name: Divided We Fall
She won't let it be seen
She hides behind her stone cold eyes
I see the cracks in her smile
Beneath a cold grey weeping sky

Winds they whisper to her heart
Will she remember yesterdays?
A life she saw, she tore apart
And she left me in dismay

So hostile in her beauty
Her blood could poison gentleness
So fatal to my days
But she still reveals pain in her gaze

Winds they whisper to her heart
Will she remember yesterdays?
A life she saw, she tore apart
And she left me in dismay

Winds they whisper to her heart
Will she remember yesterdays?
A life she saw, she tore apart
And she left me in dismay

I still see her there
Won't she fade?
Won't she fade away from me?

I still need her now
But she strayed
She strayed away from me

And I need…

She won't let it be seen
She hides behind her stone cold eyes…
Track Name: Yesterday's Fire
I was left to face deceit
I felt smothered by your lies
But I was crying out for more
I seemed so hungry for my demise

Summer's fading
In silence waiting

I'm just another casualty
But not against my will
I can't bare this reality
So taste me, take your fill

In time I'll seek the sun
And the fires that once burned
(With A Taste of Deceit)
I know what's said and done
And taken, not returned

And you left me wanting more…
And you left me wanting more…

In time I'll seek the sun
And the fires that once burned
(With A Taste of Deceit)
I know what's said and done
And taken, not returned

In time I'll seek the sun
And the fires that once burned
(With A Taste of Deceit)
I know what's said and done
And I never wanted to let go

I never wanted to let go
I never wanted to let go
I never wanted to let go
I never wanted to let go
I never wanted to let go

Summer's fading
Track Name: Carry Us Away
One glance and all's forgotten
My heart seeks whatever she can give
A dying love now shows
It's last fading light

What are you waiting for?
Break this silence and surrender...

I never knew loves fatal blindness
A grief thats silent lies so deep
But I never knew love could surround us
And it carried us away...

Her tears revealed all to me
She mourns her loss so secretly
My passion and it's fires
Now smoulder in these flames

What are you waiting for?
Break this silence and surrender...

I never knew loves fatal blindness
A grief thats silent lies so deep
But I never knew love could surround us
And it carried us away...

In air so sweet and thick with rain
These clouds they cover up my heart
This dying love now shows
It's last fading light

I never knew loves fatal blindness
A grief thats silent lies so deep
But I never knew love could surround us
And it carried us away...
Track Name: A Quiet Death of The Sun
In our parting what despair
You let it go without a care
You were lost by now your found

The snake your harboured at your breast
As I was banished from your caress
Will you delight in sorrow less?

In time… In time…

I feared life's loss and what had begun
I faced this quiet death of the sun
I found my way though all this
And now I'll let you go...

My dreaming soul it wants it all
Confused words sometimes seem to fall
May I hope and yearn for more?

Blindly I follow fate
But I regret its much to late
To accept a heart I can't adore?

In time… In time…

I feared life's loss and what had begun
I faced this quiet death of the sun
I found my way though all this
And now I'll let you go...

I feared life's loss and what had begun
I faced this quiet death of the sun
I found my way though all this
And now I'll let you go...
Track Name: The End of Everything
I wait in silent slumber
I needed to pretend
That we would find our way
As I face this listlessness

Illuminate these black skies
With our silent storm
Like flowers that bloom through fields
Of ashes burnt with scorn
The end of everything

See what you left behind?
You lost the will with time
Our bed was filled with scent
Now it feels just like a tomb

Illuminate these black skies
With our silent storm
Like flowers that bloom through fields
Of ashes burnt with scorn
The end of everything

Illuminate these black skies
With our silent storm
Like flowers that bloom through fields
Of ashes burnt with scorn
The end of everything

Don't Tell me its the end
Don't Tell me its the end
Don't Tell me its the end
The end of everything
Track Name: Without A Trace
Lost in this dreaming
In a cold sweat I'm screaming
I needed you there
To brace my despair
But you were so unaware

I still hear you breathing
But I'm left here seething
I looked deep inside
Lost in this divide
And still I'm denied

I saw you leaving
I saw you turn away
Now you're gone
You're gone without a trace

Without a trace…
Without a trace…

I saw you leaving
I saw you turn away
Now you're gone
You're gone without a trace

I saw you walk away
I said I saw you walk away

Gone without a trace
Track Name: Dark Day Coming
I see you kneel before me
On bended knees
You scorned me with your silence
With subtle ease

A dark day's coming over you
Will you realise what you've done?
A dark day's coming over
So watch these shadows fall

On passions killing floor
You let me bleed
Your actions murdered your words
Stil I concede

A dark day's coming over you
Will you realise what you've done?
A dark day's coming over
So watch these shadows fall

Was I living a lie?
I wish I could deny
But I see no reason why…

A dark day's coming over you
Will you realise what you've done?
A dark day's coming over
So watch these shadows fall
Track Name: The Burning Truth
I never wanted this, a fall before the storm
Shattered are our yesterdays
It seems so long ago, since we drifted high above
Now I can’t live without regret

I’ve lived my life a lie…

Nothing turns out right
When you're lost inside the truth
…That fades with your memory
Face the dawning light
And confront the burning truths
…I fade with your memory

You’ve cut me down to size, revealing all my lies
Open wounds that never heal
Words can feel like ice, when it touches burning skin
Can I find solace in this pain?

I’ve lived my life a lie…

Nothing turns out right
When you’re fighting to find the truth
That fades with your memory
To face the dawning light
I’ll confront these burning truths
I fade with your memory

Can’t believe it came to this, my back against the wall
With nothing left, no pride
I still remember you, the last time as we were
Now I can’t live without regret

I’ve lived my life a lie…

Nothing turns out right
When you're lost inside the truth
That fades with your memory
Face the dawning light
And confront the burning truths
I fade with your memory
