Track Name: Sophie's Ghost
I am a kid,
but i can see
ghosts in limbo
like you see me

they whisper to me
while i am asleep
wake me from a dream
sophie

tell me dead secrets of love and hate
i never asked for this blessing, this curse, this fate

can you see into my eyes into a forgotten space?
in the mirror, reflection of a strangers face
whispers to me while i am asleep
wake me from a dream
sophie

tell me dead secrets of love and hate
i never asked for this blessing, this curse, this fate
tell me dead secrets - i will set you free
you cannot run away from who you have to be

the star that lead us here told us your name
we can hide under water and we'll only hear the waves

tell me dead secrets of love and hate
i never asked for this blessing, this curse, this fate
tell me dead secrets - i will set you free
you cannot run away from who you have to be
Track Name: Taking It's Toll
the days have been taking their toll
since we last spoke
don't think that i didn't realise
you never called
you never call

spend my weeks listening to lies
entertaining them to get by
i can't preach to the other side
the river is wide
we live in denial

taking and taking its toll

swim against the river
swim against the tide
for a while

the days have been taking their toll
wondering where you have gone
the rapids move fast and the currents strong
treading water so long
you're gone

swim against the river
swim against the tide
for a while

taking and taking its toll

swim against the river
swim against the tide
now i've drifted so far from where you are
i'm tired, gonna let the river take me
for a while
Track Name: Go Quietly
Only now i see your face
as you turn to look away
so much unsaid and nothing left to say

the stories told we were so small
seasons change we have grown
maybe you are never coming home

i don't want to let go
i see your light on the horizon in the dark
would i recognise your soul?
the time has come
go quietly

once in love, always in love
the words you used to say
still ring in my ears, the sky falls, winter appears

a journey's depths can't be explained
by words so meaningless
compared to a flame

i don't want to let go
i see your light on the horizon in the dark
would i recognise your soul?
the time has come
go quietly
you know where we are
Track Name: Running
I ran in the dark
i peered through as i passed
are you crazy like me?
do you feel anything?

keep running

i ran in the dark
my heart starts to pound
bring myself back to this place
i want to stay

clouds roll and stumble
and fall beneath my feet

keep running

i ran in the cold
my heart overflows
where have i been?
i want to come home again
Track Name: Waterfalls
welcome to your living hell
break off another piece of yourself to sell
and they sell

this city was built to keep you in
prison walls and waterfalls

the city burns to keep you in
grey and dead, defeated
or so they said

screaming "someone let me out!"
the burning signs that you tried so hard to ignore
every time i try to leave
every step i take just leads me
back to the same door

burn this city down
