Track Name: Dragging Anchor
We built these walls around our city,
to fight the change brought by the rising tide.
Its not your weaknesses that scare me,
its the loss of strength and the shaking in your voice.
Like Autumn leaves, clinging to a dying tree,
waiting on the wind to carry us away.
Through changing seasons and dead landscapes,
no lights we see to guide us home.

All we have lost, and all we leave behind.
No light we see to guide us through the darkness.
No safe harbor for a ship thats dragging anchor.
No lights in the darkness to guide us back to home.

No golden sandy beaches or lit ember skies,
the lights just go out.

Waiting on the sea to change and carry me away.
Waiting on the sea to change and carry me away.
Carry me away.

The lights just go out.
The lights just go out.
Every clock must stop,
and every shadow grows long.
Track Name: Answers
You’re alone in your world, you’re alone in your world.
With that sinking feeling in your gut.
When you think that there could be infinite worlds.
Infinite worlds.
And you’re all alone in all the worlds your mind can imagine.
You cannot live with the things that scare you to death.
You talk to clouds, but they only bring the rain and moments of shade.
When you stop looking up its starts looking up, it starts looking up.

If I had all the answers,
never again would you believe.
All the things that drive us to madness.
Never again would you believe.

If I had all the answers,
never again would you need
the weight of the world off your shoulders
and finally you can breath.

If I had all the answers,
all these things would cease to be.
That feeling of loss you can bear to manage,
never again, you have to believe.

I wish I had all the answers,
to all the things out of reach.
If I had all the answers,
never again would you need to believe.

All the pain, all the sadness...
never again, never again.
