i find you so unusual a midnight flower bursting colour a finest jewel through and true and now you're here you're here you burn like fire purest gold a strong life's vital spine and skull you burn like fire and i know i find you so unusual no choice i must like breath i must to find you so beautiful on a quivering cusp... coal

Be Here Now 03:13
your hands upon my skin your warmth here is so dear close the door let's kiss let's be here oh right here i can't wait for the sight of your eyes tonight close the windows all the doors in these walls you are mine, i am yours tonight we are lovers in our world present in this moment you make me feel just so... no words know if you feel there's something else just let go let's be here i can't wait for the sight of your eyes tonight close the windows all the doors in these walls you are mine, i am yours tonight we are lovers in our world present in this moment we have nowhere else to go i can't wait you make me feel just so... no words know

what would you do if it happened to you what would you say if it was your pain and could it be true you'd have done the same spoke out those words threw out your keys walked a mile to violence my final day is far away i hope the swells in the sea won't swallow me the sea and waves won't help you change the moon in the sky won't cry tonight and could it be true you'd have done the same spoke out those words threw out your keys walked a mile to violence what would you do what would you say if it were you

Home 03:44
this suburban nomad's badge unpinned a chapter has found its end i take another look at what has been but new doors are open, beckoning and i know here we'll finally stay here we'll find our place home is where this heart is we're strong builders we are pillars tall through the thresholds through the walls i take a look outside our sun is warm we have weathered the mighty storm and i know here we'll finally stay here we'll find our place here we'll find our way

The Siege 04:10
i wish i didn't need this new essentials dress it down seek the bliss til you feel strong you forsake inner fortresses to doom push that weight push that stone straight up that hill you will know then i turn to you to see that something's up there for me such a subtle perfume slow aroma that trails heartache and truth inner seasons you forsake inner fortresses to doom push that weight push that stone straight up that hill you will know then i turn to you to see that something's up there for me i will wait i will follow the eight through the heat through drought i will see this one out through the silence our oblivion's roar i will cast away doubt i will search for more through the heartache inner seasons i have known through the silence our oblivion's roar

part of what our muscles fought part of where our hearts were made ripples and arithmetic fight out the shadows there we survived those falls we took care this is everything to me fields of flowers rows of trees ripples and arithmetic fight out the shadows there we survived those falls we took care what is this to me my defiance buried deep equations answer me hands on the heart of being i wrote down all of those words and we pushed out all that noise ripples arithmetic tried to make some sense of this to cure our own youth's powerlessness shedding skins and chasing out bad spirits in my blood ripples and arithmetic i am still the separate one i am still the surviving son oh now the story carries on

Are We Kings 04:40
hey try to stop trying you can shout out til your lungs are dry it's like thinking you can move the night try its love its like falling up in a thirsty sea stick your chin out a punch is coming run towards a wrecking ball love doesn't care for plans or comfort love truly conquers all hey you don't you see no perfection brings guarantees no precious stones will set you free its love its like falling up in a thirsty sea stick your chin out a punch is coming run towards a wrecking ball love doesn't care for plans or comfort love truly conquers all i have some faith to hold my light up in the darkness at my side are brothers at dawn truly nowhere all our thinking isn't thinking all the weight of all you'll never ever know there's still harm if all your actions are missing be bold enough to cut straight across the grain your mother's hands will pull you from the deepest waters all sensation is a vision of this pain are we kings
