Track Name: Marmalade
killing time until you die is not a way to live
i've been doing it for years and something has to give

in need of a muse but thats something you win
rewarded to only those who welcome one in
let it fill you up with fire and lead you by your hand
enough with the marmalade, its time we eat jam

getting by is fine until you realize
running in place will never win you any race

in need of a muse but thats something you win
rewarded to only those who welcome one in
is it driving you up the wall to feel your high come down?
enough with the marmalade, its time we eat jam

make the wave that rocks this tide inside out

...

here i am expecting things to start to change
wondering why, idly by, it remains... it's funny how
when the door is locked we search for keys rather than knock the damn thing down

in need of a muse but thats something you win
rewarded to only those who welcome one in
let it fill you up with fire and lead you by your hand
enough with the marmalade, its time we eat jam

make the wave that rocks this tide inside out

...

you say that you envision a song
but when will you write it?
Track Name: In Blood
i think i'm losing love
if this is not an omen i don't know what is
remember when we fell in blood?
i watched the red turn on its head
and now i can see all of it

my arm's been feeling numb
a symptom i'm ignoring or something called fear?
am i heading for a heart attack?
i feel it slowly slip away
all i can think is "this is it"
Track Name: Feel It
i cant shake the things
that tempt my will to
drink the drink, do the dance no
i cannot neglect
the way they make me feel

sweep me away
keep my vices in check
is it okay to cave in
cuz i cant help myself
when the beat begins to kick in

no no no no
i cant wait
cant wait to feel it

I'll see you again
again and again
spinning out of control
descending into pleasant vertigo

its so right
cant keep from talkin, talkin about it
when im not around it
impatiently wait for the next "hit"
Track Name: Dark Matter
weightless
in space is
this where we resume our existence posthumously? where you can't see

exiled from
creation
we watch from here the world, what we've done, and what you will be... if you're lucky

...

stare right through me every night
a blip beyond your sky invisible to your own eye but you sense me.

no sound comes
from ghost's lungs
but if i could say one thing id say that you'll always be a part of me


you haven't seen the forest for the trees until you've seen it from the stars
i walked among it once but ever since i have been watching from afar

...

i dreamed once
of an abyss once
not unlike this lifeless place. and so have you

weightless
in space this
is where you will join me one day when your days end... but until then

...

you will stand next to me
where there is no air to breathe
while im waiting for you here
make the most of life down there


you haven't seen the forest for the trees until you've seen it from the stars
i walked among it once but ever since i have been watching from afar
