Track Name: Denuo, Pt. 2
I lift a tired hand, and strike a match
To watch the wooden ones go up in flame.
But no matter how loud or long the crash,
The second stays the same.

History, fade away.
History, fade away.
Track Name: Just Like
I walked across the world to get out of the light,
And what I found was a different fight.
Please let me leave behind the troubles that I’ve made…
Would it be right to live my life at your expense?
I’m so in love with your innocence.
Don’t make me come in here and take it all away.

She said,
“Can’t you see I want to be just like…
Can’t you see I want to be just like…
Can’t you see I want to be just like…
Can’t you see I want to be just like you?

Before you, I lived like I was dangling on a string,
And I couldn’t find beauty in anything.
Please let me join you in the future that I need...
Would it be right to let me live a life I hate?
I’m so in love with the one that you’ve made.
Don’t make me stay behind and battle just to breathe.”

Can’t you see I want to be just like…
Can’t you see I want to be just like…
Can’t you see I want to be just like…
Can’t you see I want to be just like…

Can’t you see I want to be just like… (But I could never make you be just like)
Can’t you see I want to be just like… (But I could never make you be just like)
Can’t you see I want to be just like… (But I could never make you be just like)
Can’t you see I want to be just like you? (But I could never make you be just like me).
Track Name: Morning
Will you promise
To listen to my words,
If only for a minute?
‘Cause you are in
Every single breath,
And every word that’s in this.

I know I lost
Before I even fought,
And in it, I am haunted.
And all that’s left
Are pieces of the truth,
But that’s all I ever wanted.

You are such a light in my life;
In the morning, let your light shine on.

This is all
That I will ever have
To give to you that you could ever want.
So when you’re lost
And burning in the dark,
Let my life assure that you are not.

You are such a light in my life;
In the morning, let your light shine on.

Don’t leave me,
But don’t come back either.
Don’t leave me,
But don’t come back either.
Track Name: Calvary
Strung above me in wait
Is my hanging hope.
Hard to think that this fate
Is the one you chose…

My friend, why are you leaving?
Please don’t make me face
Knowing that my believing
Could have kept you safe.

I killed you by myself…
I killed you by myself.

You threw me a line,
Endless possibilities.
But I smothered my abilities.

Thank you for my life.
Thank you for my life.
Track Name: Speak / 13
Speak:

The summer months were not enough
To clear the shadows from your eyes
But then, a breath from far above
Brought the dust away from mine:

I wanted you to make me whole
A dream no mortal man can say
The degradation of my soul
Bid your faith in me away.

Epiphanies in short supply
Belated now, but not in vain
They rid me of the steady lie
That you were all I had to gain.

Completion brings upon my pen
A calm that I have never known
To hold aloft a clearer lens
And show you all that you have sown.

So tell of all that you can see
Of every season through and through
And when I use my mouth to speak
I will only speak of you.

I will only speak of you.

Thirteen...
Thirteen months.
