Track Name: Sorry
I’m sorry that sometimes it hurts you
When I get like this and then walk right by you
I don’t try to shut you out or bring you down
It’s better for me to go it alone sometimes

I know that you want to help me
I know that you’ll always be there

And I’m sorry looking forward, but I’ll make it up in time
Yes I don’t mean to be hurtful, I just need some time alone
And I’m sorry looking forward, I’ll make it up when I get home
I don’t mean to be hurtful

I can’t help but act like a stranger
Cause for days that’s what I turn into
I look like me but fight to be free
So please let me be, don’t get caught in the crossfires

I know that you want to help me
I know that you’ll always be there
(I ask you please listen closely)

And I’m sorry looking forward, but I’ll make it up in time
Yes I don’t mean to be hurtful, I just need some time alone
And I’m sorry looking forward, I’ll make it up when I get home
I don’t mean to be hurtful

And I’m sorry looking forward, but I’ll make it up in time
Yes I don’t mean to be hurtful
And I’m sorry looking forward, I’ll make it up when I get home
I don’t mean to be hurtful
(I’m saying sorry, take it from me as how it has to be)
Track Name: Abstract: Active
I speak in tongues, yes, I speak in riddles, yet
I’ll try to warn you, but I don’t control you
Hear them say,

“Will I get to see you today? Will I ever see you again?
Will I get to see you today? Will I ever see you again?
Will I ever meet the real you? Will I talk to you when I grow older?

I’ll never get to hold you, I’ll never kiss or hug you
I’ll never get to see you, you’ll never grow to love me”

Though it may pain you, the choice is not yours
We wrote it into life, not just to wreak strife but love
You mortals cry, but without the dark would light exist?
Just know before you go that you won’t know, but you think you do

You think you’ll know what it feels like, you don’t know what it will feel like
You think you’ll know what it feels like, you don’t know what it will feel like
You think ends will make your whole life, you think it will be best in the end

You can plan all you want to, live for the future’s honor
Still you will never listen, still your goodbyes will sting them
Track Name: Abstract: Passive
Now you say that all I touch will die, you never told me I would lose my green thumb
Found out everything will petrify, you tell me they will never live to become
Underground, I hate the sound of all my daughters turning to gold
Now they will never grow old

I’ll never get to hold you, I’ll never kiss or hug you, so it goes, so it goes
I’ll never get to see you, you’ll never grow to love me, once again, once again

Imagination tells a clever lie, but the picture’s nothing like the real thing
You must think I make a trembling cry, now it’s only in the name that I’m king
Scream I must, I turn to dust, the kind of love they sell at market
I couldn’t trade you for that

I’ll never get to hold you, I’ll never kiss or hug you, so it goes, so it goes
I’ll never get to see you, you’ll never grow to love me, once again, once again

I am the one who’s cursed now, I am the one whose darkness
Led to my own undoing, What was the point pretending
I made my own decisions? Choice is the gods’ dominion
I thought it would be better, I thought it would be best for us
(Eat your words and own up to your past mistakes, you knew you would
Your self pity will not bring them back to life, they’re gone for good)
Track Name: Knot
Take your voice for granted, sing while you are sick
Feel bad for wasting your time, try to live with it
Track Name: Embrace the Cold That Made You Ill
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Sing to Me, O Muse
Sing to me, O Muse, of times you did not kill in vain
Every child that held your hand, convulses now in tempered pain

Yet you grant us clarity, and see to it we are free
Yet you bring us to our knees, and drive us to the maddened seas
Track Name: The Deaf Speak
Father finds the blade, mother says your name, both your ears off
Teacher loves your voice, parents both rejoice, your words are best

Does it hurt you? They will hate you, if you speak now, they won’t hear you

All the kids at school, learn the golden rule: fend for yourself
That’s why they’re deaf too, still you sometimes hear, words you once spoke
Elders gave you gold, for your ash and cold, you’ve been lied to
Frantically you change, what was made unstrange, hear your own voice

Does it hurt you? They will hate you, if you speak now, they won’t hear you

Bow down to me, almighty hearing, each shattered voice, belongs to me

Does it hurt you? They will hate you, if you speak now, they won’t hear you
You were screaming, and haven’t stopped yet, they could hear you, only they can
Hear you screaming, and haven’t stopped yet, they could hear you, only they can
Track Name: Of Death and Dying
When I think of death and dying, I think of changing names
Moving to another country, to forget you did the same
I’d see you in the ocean blowing bubbles, like an aspect Aphrodite
Silly and so tragic, forgetting you would turn me into death

When I think of death and dying, I think of picking flowers
Make excuse to roam the country, just to find another hour
I’d keep all of our photos in a drawer, far away from the ones that you took with them
But the lot goes up in flames, the smell of heat replaces all we had

When I think of death and dying, I think of losing sleep
Listening to music, without you here by me
I’d be burning all your pictures by myself, they never did exist though
I’m such a liar, and wreck and thief and coward, I know

I see you you’re walking away with your love
With your back in the jacket that I never bought
I could talk from afar to you thought I’m not there
But the dreams with you in them are better than that

I see you already you keep showing up
You don’t have to say that I’m not being fair
I’m already sorry I’m stupid for writing
These words that won’t reach you I’m not even there

Stop it I see you a jewel in the sand
That I try to pick up but then shatters in hand
It cuts through my skin to start flowing my blood
I remember the feeling of dying again

Stop it I see you I already know
That you’re more than I could be and more than you show
I know they exist and I don’t have a soul
I never existed I don’t make a sound

No I don’t make a sound, I don’t make a sound
Track Name: Ghost
I wanted to apologize for dragging you into this. It’s a huge burden to put on someone, telling them that they are your world. What I do here is a mark of immaturity. You’ve done nothing to deserve it, and your other has done nothing wrong. Still I can’t stop projecting these images of you in my head, divine. This is how it is every time for me, I, who play the fool.

It’s just, people like you are so hard to find. So I am drawn to pursue, as a thief would wealth. But I only see a glint of your coin, and cannot make out its face. I only see the slight of you from a distance. I don’t really know anything about you. Your every piece could be lying in wait to run me through, so that upon our meeting, I am cut down, and you are cut down, and for all my words, we are not the better for it. But this encounter is so very far away. You know naught but the length of my name. I am a ghost in love with the living.
