Track Name: A Place To End
End time reflecting on regret
Empty space between birth and death
Mark meaningless increments of time
Staring at my hands, I count the lines

My earthly body breaking down
I mourn for the peace I never found
Lamentation for a long lost day
I close my eyes as I decay

The rot sets in
Under my skin
Through my veins, flesh and bone
I never found a home

Nowhere to be
The last of me
Now I waste away
With nothing left to say

I wish I could relive my life
I know I would live it right
This time

I never knew where to begin
I only found a place to end
I regret this life I never lived
These are the last words on my lips
Track Name: Fledgling
I will never let you see light
I will never let you breathe life
I will always keep you inside
I will never let you fly too high

You are my only hope in this world
You are the one thing that I must keep safe

My hope to fly lies in you
If you fall from the sky I will fall too

When you leave
I will be the space between your feathers
And when I'm gone, I'll be the wind that lifts you to great heights

You are my fledgling
You are mine to protect
I'll never let anyone take you away
I can't keep you under my wing forever
I must let you fly
I will let you fly away
Far from here
As long as you
Always keep me near

I will always let you see light
I will always let you breathe life
I will always be by your side
I know it's time to release you to the sky
Track Name: Vessel
This voice is a vessel for the hopeless
For the voiceless and the fragile
A vessel for those who look skyward
Longing to leave this cold earth behind

This voice is a vessel for the breathless
For the motionless and the dying
A vessel for those who stare blindly
Waiting for change beyond their control
For the motherless droves who've given up
And pinned their hopes on falling stars

This voice is a vessel for the faithless
For the nameless and the broken
A vessel for those who look downward
Those unable to lift their heads high
A vessel for those who stare bleakly
Burdened by the pain in their eyes

Those who've heard my cold voice calling
"who has stolen the stars from the sky?"
I will carry you far from here
Further than you could know
I will help you reach the end
Never to descend

A vessel to carry you to a place in the sky
I will be your sacrifice, your vessel
A place where we can shine our lanterns high
Connecting in the plains of darkness
I will carry you, I'll birth you to the sky
I will be your sacrifice, your vessel
A place where we can shine our lanterns high
Connecting in the plains of isolation

Deliverance into unending light
Scattered like ephemeral embers in the night
Sent above to cast a glow so bright
Together I know we can make it right
Track Name: Gone By Daybreak
She assured me it would be quick and painless
But the ticking of time is an echo oh so long
I asked her where we go when we die
She just smiled weakly and kissed my cheek

"To a place where no one knows."

This pulse in my hand
It's a life, it's a death

She pulls me swiftly by my hand
I see the crowded stairs of the church in a blur
Destined to go somewhere beyond this
It's wearing off as we slide through the door

She said "you always left me wanting more."

I am just sand in the glass and I don't fear this departure

Take me into your arms
When I'm dead and gone
Hold me close to your heart
When I'm dead and gone
Plant me deep in the ground
When I'm dead and gone
Dead and gone
