Track Name: Tripwires
Somewhere along this worn passageway
The barrage of tripwires
Led me to a stumble
My heart was left behind in the rush
A wicked encounter
That left me forsaken

These vicious trials have taken their toll
A purification
As honesty kicks in
I know my eyes, they tell their own story
And nestle right on to
Bewildered onlookers

I must confess my own shortcomings
Hand on my heart, I'm not built for this
Track Name: Hold True
As you feel, gazing eyes
Smouldering the flesh
As the blood boils
Searching for
Calming thoughts
As the words are fighting
To escape the tongue

Hold, on
A deep fervour
A delicate balance
You, are
Captive to your thoughts

Hold, true
A deep fervour
A delicate balance
You, are
Captive to your thoughts

As the war, rages on
Swallowed by the conflict from within
Every twist, every turn
Hostility remains
Amid your soul
Track Name: Finery
They said this house is haunted
The souls they are trapped in golden cages
Darling don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?
That here they stay forever more

There is no chance of rescue
The souls they are tied by love and honour
Darling hear them call, hear them call, hear them call
Their voices echo loud and clear

Here they lie surrounded by finery
Here I lie surrounded by finery

You said you’d come to find me
I need the release from golden cages
Darling don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?
That here they stay forever more

Come on darling
Don't let me grow cold
Come on darling
Don't let me grow cold
Track Name: New Dawn
Hold on, there's only so long that
I can have my arms open for you,
Hope it now fades with the light

New dawn, this is the morning when
Snow falls, we become torn apart
Maybe this time for good

I await my love,
We did not need the warnings
Of others
As the day unfolds
And the light brings the moment
To full view

Here now, this was just waiting
To break free
Everything plain to see
Signs they were clear to all

Outside, windswept and knocked off your own feet
The temple began to fall
What will you call your home?

As the storm takes hold
And the night draws in
Oh, the times of old
They begin again
Track Name: My Sanctuary
Lend to me your coat
And your tired smile
As I head out to the storm
Will you follow?

Send me on my way
With a knowing stare
As I leave this sacred home
Till tomorrow

Now I'm covered all in white
Tell me will I lose the fight?
The lady she has spoken
I'm cold and I am broken
My sanctuary's not in sight
I fear that I have lost the fight
The lady of the mountain
Her voice is so commanding

In my own cocoon
Hidden from all view
I begin to comatose
Don't think you followed
Over time I fade
Into my surrounds
And at last I'm at one with her
No more sorrow
Track Name: Clarity of Thought
With each and every turn
The hoards are drawing in
And I'm losing my breath
In a swarm again
I can feel the words now escape me
Voices are dancing round
Air it thickens in a fury
We break out

We share these heavy ties
The tribal markings of
Our distant past lives
Yet I'm all at sea
This ritual of our own creation
It’s so elusive now
Fighting the need to leave in a hurry
We break out

How we crave
For the silence to return
Peace restored
And a clarity of thought

The stillness of the night
A steady march back north
We return to our base
We depart at last
Turn away now, leaving this
Sea of faces behind
We start
Senses numb and tired eyes
We broke out

Here we are as one
What should we become?
Track Name: Enemy Lines
The season unravelled before us,
The rain it tumbled down and
All our pathways
They turned to riverbeds

With no shelter from the storm,
And the cloudy skies above
It lashes down on us
Lashes from above

The dimness of the light
Cold drops are crashing on the skin
We're searching for
A moment of relief
Flowing over our feet
It's bursting out at the seams
We're searching for
A moment of relief

And how the truth unfolds

Give me a reason, not to leave you
Behind enemy lines

When the light breaks
Through these heavy skies
When the light breaks
Through these heavy skies
I'll need a reason
Not to leave you
Behind enemy lines
Track Name: Hibernate
As the distant sun begins to fall and daylight fades
The cold's here, clinging to the flesh
As the bitter air returns to take its hold again
Take care, as we hibernate

Overcome by fear
In the silence of the eerie night
Hanging by a thread
As we face the truth

Here the devil returns
Tearing its way through our unity
In a moment it comes
Taking its hold 'til the dawn returns

As the mighty woods begin to show their bones to all
Stand still as the winter arrives
Lying, waiting for the icy gales to fade away
Finally, we return as one
Track Name: The Wolves
And at once, all could now see
Even you couldn't quite believe the lies
That did flow from your own lips
Jaded tales in an all too routine prose

Cast me out and throw me to the wolves
Cast me out and throw me to the wolves

And now with haste we stride
And kneel before the dawn
Enveloped by the sun
An unrelenting strife, it rages all around
Allied we return
And now with haste we stride
And kneel before the dawn
Enveloped by the sun
An unrelenting strife, it rages all around
Allied we return

As the watch slowly ticks on
Each beat an eternity apart
Heavy sounds, deep breathing
We reflect as the moment lingers on

Bind me in chords of gold
I stay confined in here
Track Name: Free for All
The crowds gather in
Comfort in the weekly sin
Cherish the reward
'Til your senses become blurred

This is our murmuration
Get away from it now
In a free for all
Assembling together
Get away from it now
In a free for all
This is what we deserve
Get away from it now,
In a free for all

Time to listen in
Our call, a nation address
Wait on every word
Rise and fall
Hang on to my word

Will you wait, or go?
Will you wait, or go?
Track Name: Atlas
I know each and every fault line
Almost etched upon my own skin
There they will remain

Like a map I know will guide me
Though the detail I cannot see
I feel the line is clear

It's time, it's calling me, we are not alone
Let's run, go far away, see what we become
I know, to everyone, it will seem so blind,
But I, have hidden here, a compass defined


Leave your atlas at the door love
All we need is here inside me
Running through my veins

See the route upon my left hand
See the longing filling my eyes
Place your hand in mine
Track Name: Trust
Here we stand surrounded by white walls
Never once did I expect to be this powerless
Turn it around, mustn’t look down
They say keep it from your mind
Look up ahead, look up ahead

All at once
My life is in their hands
Help me now to trust
Hold on to the trust
The path that we have chosen
It will make us strong
If we soldier on

Leave your dignity and best made plans at the door
My control has fallen to the side
Turn it around, mustn’t look down
They say keep it from your mind
Look up ahead, look up ahead
Track Name: The Storm
It's all that I've known
This old workhorse
Worn out bolts, keep on holding together
The binds that will make us whole

Others they've turned
The slow decay
Vices neglected and are left in the struggle
As the days begin to take hold

There they go
Others head out to the storm
Here we go
Back to our own sacred world

The ageing floors
In disrepair
Old uniforms are hanging loose on the coat rail
And only we two remain
