 THE FROZEN WORLD THAWED

                                                                  2011

(INTRO) THAT WHICH WAS LEFT BEATING

I wander this city

Underneath the skyline

just to see your eyes

just to see your…

I wander this city

Underneath the skyline

just to see your eyes

just to see your…

STILL RESTLESS, STILL TIRED

I’m exhausted, Im exhausted

I’ve forgotten the distance but still remember the fall.

Wash this crown,wash this crown

But bury it in the dirt underground.

Hold on to the leaves, hold on to the leaves

Remember the change in colors will let you fall.

I’m exhausted, I’m exhausted

I’ve forgotten the distance but still remember it all.

Become the bitter earth, rebirth,rebirth

Forgive all of your worst, rebirth, rebirth

Release those dead lives over Me,

Drink your wine just drink Your wine.

You’re not as strong as You think

Keep Your head down but don’t forget to breathe.

Release those dead lives over Me,

Drink your wine just drink Your wine.

You’re not as strong as You think,

Drink your wine just drink Your wine.

Become the ice in the lungs of all the dying Children.

Make dead the Trees that let the leaves fall from These cold Hands.

Forsake these wretched Winds that let this Guilt walk on in.

What is this existence?

I feel nothing of what I’m told is a Man.

Become the bitter earth, rebirth, rebirth

Forsake these wretched Winds that let this Guilt walk on in.

What is this existence?

I feel nothing of what I’m told is a Man.

Become the bitter earth, rebirth, rebirth

Become the Ice in the lungs of all the dying Children.

Treat the wounds, these frigid Winds have given this Skin.

Give to the sky, mistook Eyes, to beat the sundown upon all of my Lies.

Make night  fall forever upon the Husbands and Wives. 4X

Keep distant from the shades frost bitten tongue,

There He carries the Regrets You’ve bestowed in Lost touch.

I have given Myself to this Earth, Rebirth, Rebirth.

Forgive this City and the lies I had left in it,

Fuck this City and the Dead that walk among it.

Forgive Me for being so damn selfish.

Let Me Rebuild the Trust I had left for Dead.

Forgive this City and the Lies I had left in it,

Fuck this City and the Dead that walk among it.

Forgive Me for being so damn Selfish

Let Me Mend the Pain I’ve left in Your head!

THE SLOW BREAKING OF MORNING

I took apart the crown, the reasons I feel this way.

I bet you think i’m falling fast but my heart never beats so slow.

I took apart the crown, the regrets I let eat at me

I bet you think I’m falling fast but my heart never beats so slow.

I took apart the crown, the reasons I feel this way

I bet you think I’m falling fast but my heart never beats so slow.

This throat is a dead coffin for dead words that never amount

Dead words that I could only speak under a different  name.

So cut them loose from this throat, gather your roses and let it all bleed out.

To dry my eyes and let this anguish pass

To keep from letting my head fall to the tracks

To dry my eyes and let this anguish pass

To dry my eyes and let this anguish pass

To hear her voice in comfort for Joy loves when I laugh

To hear her voice in comfort for Joy loves when I laugh

To hear her voice in comfort for Joy loves when I laugh

To hear her voice in comfort for Joy loves when I laugh

I’ve spent the past four years eating through My own Head

I’m sorry for this suffering but would but You rather Me dead?

I ripped Her apart as she did Me, I’ve lost the trust She’d found in Me.

I had lost My mind to the siege of vessels drowning in My veins

I’ve spent the past four years eating through My own Head

I’m sorry for this suffering but would but You rather Me dead?

We are here and we won’t be forgotten  /   2X

I’m sorry for this suffering but would but You rather Me dead?

we are here and we’ll never back down  \

I’m sorry for this suffering but would but You rather Me dead?

it takes me more than breathing just to keep me alive

now give me the green in your eyes                              3X

and I’ll give you the blood in mine

How’d these clean hands become covered with blood.

Where has my body travelled when down came the floods.

I’ve no more innocence, I am a coward, I’d rather Kill than be Loved.

Ring out my voice into your sundried eyes

Fill these fields with straying regrets and lies

Just to lay among the sheets so weak, under these bright ,bright blue eyes.

BALCONY SCENE

You don’t know what this means to me

Walking these streets, holding in my cries

(sometimes I look back and I wait, for something)

Take my fragile hands, you can feel my heartbeat

Take my fragile hands, you can feel my heartache, It

Didn’t have to be so hard, why’d this have to be so hard?

The emotions in my voice, distract me, from my words

This could be my fault.

I’m not fine, I’m not alright

2,3,4!

My hands, Your heart, I’ll admit I was wrong

THE FROZEN WORLD THAWED

How can You see through the haze of burning embers?

Can’t You feel the smoke passing through Your lungs?

How do we always forget to remember the Summer sun on our skin when We were so Young?

I tried to run from Myself in attempt to Escape My Own life.

Just to see if These Hands could Set Me Free from These frosted Tides.

These are the best Times of our Lives

But We’re all running blind.

Take chance and give Love some Time,

She’ll come back or You’ll Just Find Life.

There’s nothing worth such heavy Dwelling on

So forgive Your Hurting and Those Who’ve Hurt You.

These are the best Times of Our Lives,

So pick Your Friends up and keep pushing on.

These are the best Times of our Lives

But We’re all running blind.

Take chance and give Love some Time,

She’ll come back or You’ll Just Find Life.

I can’t believe that I’m Still Alive,

From the Pain I’ve put Her and Myself through.

There’s nothing so Precious on this Earth as life.

Remember being young and finding Joy in fake fights?

I can’t believe that I’m still Alive

I can’t believe that…

These are the best Times of our Lives

But We’re all running blind.

Take chance and give Love some Time,

She’ll come back or You’ll Just Find Life.

I EXIST IN PRE-DAWN WORLD

Here I am on My own two knees

Trying to put an end to this mess I’ve made

Can’t you see that I’m suffering, because of your suffering

Here I am on my own two knees

Looking for an answer to end this mess I’ve made

Can’t you see I’m suffering from what I’ve done to you

I still lied to all of you, I promise it’s the truth

Again I won’t let these statues crumble

I still lied to all of you, I promise its the truth

We built from lost hope and trust

I still lied to all of you, I promise it’s the truth

Again I caused her green eyed fall

I still lied to all of you, I promise it’s the truth

But I will keep clean the rust

I’ve not filled these bones with doubt

I can see you’re suffering ,I’m sorry for this suffering

Wouldn’t you just love to see My Own heart thats Bled?

So you can taste the blood that runs through These bloodshot eyes,

Beg the heavens to rain down upon me.

The River cries bring floods to Me.

I can’t bare her screams but they’re all my fault

I have torn from her dreams the fear of her heart.

I’ll do anything to keep the silence of her dreams

as her breathing falls over me

I’ll do anything to keep the silence of her dreams

I can hear the pain coming through her voice

Yet the tears still don’t shake those shallow seas

I can see the pain washing white over her face

I can see the pain, I can see the Pain

Time will wash away our doubts and fix her fragile heart

I’ll walk within the shadows and reconstruct these faults

I’d be better off roaming the streets with the dead

So I can keep clean these selfish hands.

BARREN TREES

Do You still hear Me even when I don’t Speak?

Do Your eyes gaze in or stare right through Me?

How can You Love Me when I can’t seem to

Pick My Own head up and keep pushing on.

Do You still hear me even though I don’t speak?

I’ll take a chisel to The Eyes and You’ll see that I’m just not right

Do you feel the Cold tides that rip through Me on those long Nights?

I’ll take a chisel to These Eyes and You’ll see into My Life,

Waiting for the Sunlight to ease the Darkness from My Mind.

I’ll take a chisel to The Eyes and You’ll see that I’m just not right

Do you feel the Cold tides that rip through Me on those long Nights?

I’ll take My chances to Reconstruct My Hands Mess,

Just to see the Ones I had left Rusting

I’ll take My chances to Reconstruct My Hands Mess,

Just to see the Ones I had left Rusting

When does My Grieving take notice when I’m Speaking?

When will She see that I’m just Not Breathing?

When does My Grieving take notice when I’m Speaking?

When will She see that I’m just Not Breathing?

FORGETFUL EYES

There was nothing I had done to deserve this,
I protected what I thought was mine.
Echoes catch me through the halls and I hear her speak my name
Anger in her voice, embarrassed, she persuades she’s not to blame.
My eyelids could not grace me with the comforts of my dreams
But I feel her moving in when her warmth blankets me

“lye with me, please just hold me” she speaks, so I give in
How foolish I was to disregard my comfort and take in arms.
She’s swelling up, her voice mutters in disgust, mistook indulgence.

The warmth of her body recedes, my breathing has lost pace, my hearts replaced
We got lost on our way in, with our fears set aside,
I could not fight the growing distress that plagued us,
We lost ourselves on the way out, our eyes could not recognize,

I took hold my anguish and tore through her world,
The heart you once carried has turned to rust
Inside the remnants of your walls
My voice will creep through your skin and haunt your sleep

I’ve embraced the ghosts that haunt me
I have set myself free,
I’ve embraced your ghost that haunts me
I am finally set free.
I have set myself free.

CLEAR THE EARTH/MY EXIT TO HIDE IN

Where do you cross the line between anger and depression?

If your blood runs cold leave these tired eyes in your frustration.

Where do you cross the line between anger and depression?

How is it that the dark always holds on to our shadows?

Holding onto the things we still hate to know.

I hate to sleep the hours off but I just can’t rid this rust

I hate to sleep the hours off but I just can’t rid this rust

If only we could let the tired sleep then our best would be enough

If only we could let the tired sleep

These cards hold the name, Le Serpent Mascara, you know the game

In this endless hall no one will be there to hear me fall

Without sound I’ll continue to hide within my own blue eyes,

And I’ll admit to being so fucking selfish,

Trying to cover up all of my fucking lies .

Pity won’t save you now, her cries will pierce your eyes

Let the guilt bleed on out and this pill will ease your doubts.

Pity won’t save you now, take this pill to ease your doubts.

I wake up every day breathing

Yet that still doesn’t  satisfy my prayers

For this death that waits for me

So clear the earth and carve the stone that waits for me.

Shovel the dirt in my grave, label the stone without shame

And tell everyone who knows my name that I’m the only one to blame.

Shovel the dirt in my grave, I’m the only one to blame.

Shovel the dirt in my grave, label the stone without shame

And tell everyone who knows my name that I’m the only one to blame.

Shovel the dirt in my grave, I’m the only one to blame.

So tell everyone who knows my name to shovel the dirt in my grave.

RUST IN MY LUNGS

With open arms and lost endeavors We’ll get past this Anger and Depression

And the things that We Fear We’ll just learn to Love Them.

There’s a reason I’m still Alive and the deal breaker was the Green in Her Eyes.

Four years of Hope and Torment but now We know We’ll get through it

There’s a reason I’m still Alive and the deal breaker was the Friends in My Life.

So  all Those Who know My Name can come dig Me out from My Grave.

There’s a reason I’m still Alive and the deal breaker was the Friends in My Life.

There’s a reason I’m still Alive and the deal breaker was the Friends in My Life.

I’m still here and I’m still Breathing.

We’re still here and we’re still fighting

We’re still here and we’ll keep on kicking

Till our legs begin to weaken.

Please don’t let the Night crash in on Me

So take hold My Hand and pull till I’m Free.

I won’t let the Night Crash over You

So take hold My Hand and I’ll keep pulling…but …

There’s still Ice in My Lungs from the Anchors of

Crashing Ships that let the Ice Drown Them

There’s still Ice in My Lungs from the Anchors of

Crashing Ships that let the Ice Drown Them

Speak now Old Sailor, does the Fear of Drowning

Keep You from Sailing Those Wretched Waters

Speak now Old Sailor, does the Fear of Drowning

Keep You from Sailing Those Wretched Waters

SET ASIDE YOUR FEARS

Fundamentalist
You don’t breathe the same as I do.
The thoughts You think can’t compare to mine.
Your name carved in my chest, forever set into flesh.
As we push and pull, you know I’ll never leave.
You don’t breathe the same as I do.
The thoughts You think can’t compare to mine.
Precious creeps inside me through my heart and into my veins,
Only to leave me. We will be fine, oh [We’ll be fine]
Now there’s nothing we have to save.
Release the ties, and just run with me.We kiss through the heat, and bathe in our pride
Gasp to breathe you don’t breathe the same as I.

James
Etch out the words etch out the words
Etch out the words from the tree you have burned,

If You cut the noose maybe I could hear You,
Speak into the air , the wind will carry it away.
The truth holds my Fear so I pray for westward gusts.
Stars keep me dreaming, as Your name passes by
But you only deserve what a grown man grieves
The truth holds my fears.
Set aside your fears, darling come to me, run to me
James
Etch out the words etch out the words from
The tree You have burned
March in unison and bury
The Beginning
Look at you,oh god!
When will all of this just fucking end?
Her angelic look persuade me to intrude
Held  across my eyes, lies have made me blind
I know you taste the smoke on my lips
As I crawl down your throat to feed back your lies.
You have consumed me within your boundaries
And I see your eyes start to fall.
As your gaze is set far from me (and I will)
Have you etched        (on the insides)
of my eyelids
Then on, We will always be together.
Forgetful eyes
There was nothing I had done to deserve this,
I protected what I thought was mine.
Echoes catch me through the halls and I hear her speak my name
Anger in her voice, embarrassed, she persuades she’s not to blame.
My eyelids could not grace me with the comforts of my dreams
But I feel her closing in when her warmth blankets me
“lye with me, please just hold me” she speaks, so I give in
How foolish I was to disregard my comfort and take in arms.
She’s swelling up, her voice mutters in disgust, mistook indulgence.
The warmth of her body recedes, her breathing has lost pace, my hearts replaced
We got lost on our way in, with our fears set aside,
I could not fight the growing distress that plagued us,
We lost ourselves on the way out, our eyes could not recognize,
I took hold my anguish and tore through her world,
The heart you once carried has turned to rust
Inside the remnants of your walls
My voice will creep through your skin and haunt your sleep
I’ve embraced the ghosts that haunt me
I have set myself free,
I’ve embraced your ghost that haunts me
I am finally set free.
I have set myself free. Consistency(interlude)


Our Move Forward
I could barely see You through the silent haze of my dream,
I thought I heard You calling my name I thought I heard You.
I’m terribly afraid
of how the wind has tricked Us
With Our feet in the sand
We’re barely holding ground.
Our hands
losing their touch,
the touch
We had once valued
Only biding time
before the dreams
We made
are all washed away
Darling come to me
When You’ve lost Your will
And can’t even speak
Your own name
Only biding time before
The dreams
We made are washed away
They’re all washed away
My Dear I want to hear You breathe,
To feel Your heart through my chest,
To reignite the love we had, Love we had set to rest
To smell Your skin and to once again,
Be comfortable and warm, for You I yearn.
Darling please control your heapsThis presence will forever fail to keep,
It always failed to keep.
“I always Love You”

Take my fragile hands so you can feel my heartache,
Take my fragile hands so you can feel my heartbeat,
Take my fragile hands and once again complete me.
Once again complete me?
The promises  that You made and the Love that You gave.
Broken shards still remain, no my hands won’t complain
The promises You made and the Love that You faked.
I will not let my hate consume my heart.

Two Shades of Familiar White
I can hear your smile and I can feel your laughter,
I have felt your tears and I have heard your Joy,
I have heard your tears and I have felt your Joy.
Still now he doesn’t sleep at night, knowing
It’s not his eyes putting her to sleep tonight.
Still now he doesn’t sleep at night, knowing
It’s not his eyes laying her to sleep at night.
Joy come to me,
Joy speak to me,
It’s been far too long,
Since I’ve been graced
By
The comforts of your breathing.
“I am here, my love for you is endless”
Build on the ruins we had laid to rest.
The was nothing I could hold.
Reason was swept away by the breeze.
Only so long I can plead,
Oh my dear don’t set me free.
I’ve never felt so alive with your
Hands tightly grasped in mine.
Yet to reconcile and complete
Our move forward
No longer we live in our trust,our faith, our escape.
Repeat, her green eyes fall,
Repeat, and statues crumble,
We built, from bone and trust,
To watch, it break like rust.
The city streets fled and clawed at my ankles
The warnings did not reach me.
I should’ve known. When I reached for your hand,
You kept it tightly to your side,
That you no longer need, the pain, the anguish, despair in my eyes.
In you I leave my last breath,
She can’t be stopped, with her pride set aside.
I have nothing left to give,
As we fall and separate ourselves.
Wading,drifting,drowning

Hey Kid look at you with all the potential
being victorious, being great. Happiness clings onto
a single thread, the grief my obnoxious excuses for…
convincing the foundation, the blueprint
sketches and sketches just plans though out on a piece of paper
half done, half hearted.

a half hearted son looking at the stars trying to figure out what
all this awe is about. The learned astronomer, what went through his
mind, what could possibly not go right back into mine
reel all of it in and never come to the end
the fucking bait snapped, get over it and skip to the end
wait till you find out
wait till the light goes out
wait till you find out
wait till there’s nothing left to lack

LANTERN EP
When the tired Speaks
“I took her heart, and broke its worth.
She took the lies, and brought them forth.
I’m tired of hearing my own mouth
Mutter beneath the dead face stare her attraction keeps.
I’d rather feel the comforts of your pain,
than be left alone.
Bloody,broken, take this heart you had once stolen.
I lied to all of you, i promise it’s the truth.
This is my hearts worth and I belong with you.
I am here, Her eyes dream.
I dream she’s dreaming of me.
I know she’s dreaming me
I can hear it in her hearts beat.
Joy has been kept far from me,
And I have been kept far from beauty.
There’s a distance growing from our arms,
But we can’t stop ourselves from loving the ones we’ve lost.”

“Running Out”

“I believe there’s place for our comfort,
I believe there’s time to grow forth,
I believe we’ll learn to speak,
I believe its me that failed to keep ,
I know its you who trembles through me,
I’ve forgiven the mistakes the moment they were made.
I’ve been filled with anger since the day you left,
I’ve hidden the photos to leave them safely kept,
I’ll forever live in your eyes and in your head
I’ll wake from this dream when fear recedes,
And there’s nothing left but you forever held in me.

Her anger gouged,into my palms and
up through my arms, with the precision
she had carried, and pulled my feet from under me.

There’s hazel in her eyes and roses in her cheeks
My lips knew the answers but just wouldn’t speak

If my breathing decides to steer me wrong
I beg to you, to you let this be once more.

As long as I’m sure there’s no stopping the anger i’ve endured
The pain, anguish, despair in our hearts torn.

Everyone kills the hearts they touch to mend their own hearts,
We fall into false arms to mend our own hearts.

This’ll be the last time fall into false arms,
Everyone kills the hearts they touch to mend their own hearts.

I know you’ve tried to forget me, but i know you have never left me ,
I will forever protect what lies in my arms,

No matter the pain i’ve endured, no matter the pain i’ve caused
It’s these hearts, these hearts that keep the blood pulsing through.

We are the wretched, we are the lovers of lost conception.”

“Dont Forget To Remember”

“Joy my love my darling you know who you are

If you find yourself coming crashing down
I could be the one guiding you back home
Joy my love, my dear you know who are
I could be the one guiding you back home
if you find yourself coming crashing down
when we were home
fighting hope, fighting sleep
her hands cold, her sacred eyes i held in mine
oh how the tired speaks
outside that pretty mouth just to fall away
to fall away for the last time.
I am here and i am alone
i am here and i am broken
hand in hand we wont be forgotten.
dead weight steers its stare creeping through
only to fall beneath me once again
when all is done we’ll march onward
we are one we’ll march onward.
If this could only be the last time we fell into false arms
set to continue where we left off dead face she speaks
tonight she will not be stopped with her pride set aside
she cannot be stopped with her pride set aside
i had no sense to turn away the pain, anguish
in each of our tries,sit still.
let the damp air and anxieties crawl into my skin
the trembling voices lead outside and the cold cool air revives me.
a grave storm had swept through our audience,
nows the time to speak.Darling make him speak,
i plead make him speak.
the rustic words his voice fell far to short
darling make him speak.
she’s too strong to let her weeping eyes show,
her false ideas of love soon tremble through.
i can see through your eyes ,
and i can see into your heart
to hear her voice to smell her skin
,to feel the sweat,
we wept with the guilt of pleasure.
to comfort those arms to feel so strong
inside a heart when all goes wrong
but you know theres no changing it all
To feel the skin on skin
to fight through the heat of night
to release our fears with sweat
and never winning a fight,
oh i’d die to be there again.
TAKE YOUR HEARTS AND TAKE YOUR HANDS FOREVER LET THEM SPEAK
TEAR YOUR HEARTS FROM CHESTS AND FOREVER LET THEM BEAT
OH JUST LET YOUR HEARTS SING
OH JUST LET OUR HEARTS SING
There was a time not long ago,
there was a time not long ago when everything was fine
and you are mine and everything was fine
her eyes cut through my words,
“why cant you ever speak to me”
“please can you fix things”? “i’ll make everything alright?” i promised
Now put your weary head to rest
I’ll make everything alright
Dust in my eyes and grit in my teeth
i buried the last of your words within in me.
what happens when all is done
as she gives up on me
will my head still think the same
will our hearts still need the pain?
Even in my dreams i cant find the peace,
to escape the walls you’ve built around me.
i believe we’ll learn to speak
unless my ears bade me wrong,
this’ll be the last time we fall into false arms.”
