Track Name: Let Us Go
As the black trees wither and the engines hum
While the people quiver at its rum-tum-tum
Let us go, my sister
Let us go, let us go

Taking one last gander at what once was home
You and I meander through the streets alone
Let us go, my sister
Let us go, let us go
Let us go, my sister
Let us go, let us go

A new world is coming
I feel this old one running down, down, down
As our feet push off of the ground
Escaping, and taking only each other
Knowing now, now, now
There's a power higher than our own

I have heard tall tales of the gray skies blue
I have heard the rumors of the spring time bloom
And I want to see it for myself
Let us go

I have few belongings, but I'll give you my hand
As we soldier forward to a foreign land
'Cause I want to see it for myself
Let us go
'Cause I want to see it for myself
Let us go

A new world is coming
I feel this old one running down, down, down
As our feet push off of the ground
Escaping, and taking only each other
Knowing now, now, now
There's a power higher than our own

You can push your venom through a megaphone,
But this place is not my home
You can beat me down 'till I bleed and moan
But this place is not my home
You can douse my spirit in your cheap cologne
But this place is not my home
I'm gonna stand and take it as you throw your stones
'Cause this place is not my home

A new world is coming
I feel this old one running down, down, down
As our feet push off of the ground
Escaping, and taking only each other
Knowing now, now, now
There's a power

A new world is coming
I feel this old one running down, down, down
As our feet push off of the ground
Escaping, and taking only each other
As we bow, bow, bow
To a power higher than our own
Track Name: Anomaly
My lips are cracked, my body sore
Nothing but black inside these doors
You've asked to enter into
This tomb I'm so akin to
And to atone these broken bones

Come
I'm discontent with what I am
A blinded wretch, not worth a damn, so
Come
I'm waiting on your count of three
To join you in this anomaly

You blow the dust out of my lungs
In my you thrust a new song to be sung
And now there's no reverting
You've shredded through the curtain
And overthrown this comatose

Come
I cry to you with gasping breaths
Releasing what is left of death, so
Come
Relearning what it is I crave, I'm drawn to you
Out of my grave
Track Name: Upturned
Lost, lost in my own comfort zone
Changing my mind with every decision I make

Wrong, time and time and time again
Falling flat on my face when I think I'm thinking logically


But where do you turn
When your whole world has been flipped upside down?
'Cause changing direction is rather complex
When you've been upturned


Stuck, flooded with impediments
Shifting my way through what seems to be a pointless strain

Caught, something's pushing me about
Tumbling up and all around as the tide pulls in and out


But where do you start
When it's unnatural to begin with?
Finding my footing,
I wish that I would have paid attention

And where do I go
When I don't even know where I stand now?
'Cause changing my ways
Would only further the haze in me of self-doubt


Upturned
Unopposed and unaware
Upturned
Letting go will take me there

Lost, lost in my own comfort zone
Track Name: Magnolia
Good day, Magnolia
I've got a question for you
What is it that's going through your mind?
You feel the seasons turn,
Yet in your heart of hearts
You're yearning for the summers left behind

Some days I run myself in circles just to amplify
The fact that there is someone there for you
I wonder if you'll ever take the time, open your eyes
To realize there's more beyond your blues

Good day, Magnolia
You have escaped
Into the world of broken clocks and jars of dust
Antiques and marionettes
You are a puppet of regret that's hiding underneath the rust

Some days I'm bending over backwards to exemplify
The things that you could do if you would try
Regardless of what you've been told, there's fire left in you
You'd see it if you'd open up your eyes
Track Name: Bend
I'm being drawn to You
And all I want to do is just give in
There's no fighting it
I've tried and it's a battle I won't win

It's all so new to me
A truer sense of peace than what I've known
My heart is softening
And I've lost every desire to stay stone

Your humble love is gently breaking down my walls
I'm stepping out and taking in the beauty of it all

I'm finding more to learn each day
And I have heard that it won't end
With a push of each red letter
We'll learn together how to bend

Your humble love is gently breaking down my walls
I'm stepping out and taking in the beauty of it all


There is no one else with whom I'd rather be
It's so comfortable to walk with You through time
I know there's so much more to come throughout this journey
And as You share with me that heart of Yours,
I'm inclined to give You all of mine
Track Name: Awaiting Conclusion
How close is this sun to being set
Each morning we rise, yet evening you bet
That we'll stay sunken

How close is this love to drying out
It rushes and runs down any open route
Hopeless, drunken


Why are we here?
Who is gaining anything from this?
Times we draw near
Are always a hit and miss


Two negative charges
Are bound to repel
Misery enlarges
Until one of us is expelled


What is this life?
Always filled with overwhelming strife
There is no fight
To the conclusion in sight


It's hard to judge the distance
Of how far from right we are
Still persisting with resistance
In this union of ours


How close is this sun to being set
