Track Name: Two Kinds
Reflections of the light above waves and ripples in greeting our shining faces
Seeing sparks of what may become
Is it love or some other thing we know nothing of
We know nothing of
We Know nothing of....

CHORUS: Soft and cool
My lips are blue
Your lips are soft and cool
My lips are blue
Your lips are too

And as we touch it won't take much before I close my eyes and see where this moment can take us
Far and wide
As we hide (,)
Our bodies (,)
blind to what lies beneath us

Pre-CHORUS: Darker still
How much longer till my eyes stop adjusting to the contours of your features
Beyond our will have we found a thrill in one another?

CHORUS

Reflections of the light above waves and ripples in greeting our shining faces
Track Name: Come Elijah
It circles 'round me now that I hear the warning far behind the point that I should have stopped myself
Heed the fiery feud that I started so long ago
Sat on a shelf

All the answers might have seemed easy to read
But my eyes were blinded to everything in front of me

CHORUS:
Come like Elijah, down, down
Come like Elijah
Where were you when I needed someone
Come like Elijah, down, down,
Come like Elijah
Where were you when I needed you

Is this the end where I see all the suffering
Turned to good use but I'm held only by a string

I was my cradle, my own open hand
Weaned myself from broken sores you wouldn't understand
I was my hymnal, my own marching band
Pushed away the windows until I could no longer see you stand

CHORUS

Is this the end where I see all the suffering
Turned to good use but I'm held only by a string
Is this where we begin to look more like ourselves
No longer punished in the reason that we fell

CHORUS
Track Name: Death of a Man
He was found on the side of the road where the children played
Where the street lamps began their moonlit serenade
Just beyond the horizon where his body lay
And the history of how his spirit was slain
And the mystery of the solemn man sank through the sand before the day did break

Oh....

And the leaves were dark that hid him there
And the limbs of the trees broken and snared
Across his heart and to the bone
But no one had come to take him home

Perhaps his family had a wife, a mother to three
Or was he a child of one who left him with uncertainty
Of who he would become, just like mine did to me
Or was he certain of what his fate would be

Oh....

And the bruises on his face will show
The fight he gave we'll never know
The cuts and burns were from the ground
To where no one had cared to carry him down
Track Name: Houses
I opened the door to let you come in to my white, white living room
I opened the windows so you could look in and out to enjoy the view
But the stains on the walls weren't as clean as they seemed
So I rushed to obscure you from the writings I had covered and the spaces in-between
Now you can see them too

CHORUS
Oh suddenly, I felt I could breathe and saw colors in their hues
And I will love you
And I will love you
And I will love you till my face falls to the ground

The first blow of wind came when the seasons changed from grey to our first sky blue
The reds weren't as clear and the yellows disappeared
I didn't know what to do
Did you slip away or did I get pushed away as the house swirled out of view
Standing in bare feet on the concrete
You were standing outside too

CHORUS
Track Name: September
If I was September, then you'd be November
Always with one month between us
So close together
Forever yet never will our shoulders touch
Thus the heartache in the view of the days we outnumber and how often I can see you hold hands with December, but she'll never remember how it feels to lose you
But I do

Then January wed you, oblivious that I knew the way your hair used to fall down your face
Or cheeks that may glisten when I have told you a story that made the ghosts fly away

Though I may have been naive that I may have believed in hope that you would turn back to look at me
So, I've been deceived by the notion I dreamed
I knew it wasn't that I was crazy
It wasn't there, but I didn't pull it out of thin air
It isn't there so I won't pull it out of thin air

When words are left unsaid, it's the ravenous thread unbroken, leading me right back to you
All that remains unspoken seeps through me like a poison and drenched all thoughts of anything new

So I must tell you

Sometimes friends aren't forever
And the special word will never be the same thing to me as it may be to you
You can seal it with a kiss but on my lips this will be the only thing I will say to you

Love it transcends, patient and kind but I've had enough
Enough this time
For my eyes can't bear it and I don't want to see it again and again that you'll never be mine
So September's behind you or so far in front of you and I need to live a separate life
Where I'm not so blinded by the shadow you leave me
But where October is right in front of me

Where he can bring me somewhere I'm alive
Where he can bring me somewhere I'm alive
