Track Name: Mermaids & Manatees
amidst the waves they buried me
sank like concrete into the sea
hopes nor prayers will set me free
through the darkness they buried me
find me where the coral grows
lift my body out from underneath
breathe new life to my old lungs
all we were we'll leave to rot away
i rest where a breath of air could
make me float astray
so be my anchor
in waves i am pulled beneath
the water by my heart
'til you release me
find me where the angels bathe
cleansing me of all my past mistakes
moulded by the ocean's hands
bereft of life i wait here for the end
i rest where a breath of air could
make me float astray
so be my anchor
in waves i am pulled beneath
the water by my heart
'til you release me
felt the sun shimmer through
illuminates my path to you
felt the air
heard its sound
leading me to solid ground
i looked around
i stopped
i stared
came to see
you were never there
Track Name: Blossom
show me how to pretend i'll ever be one
to sway the minds of doubters
i've a need to project to louden
a voice to which you never listen
until you return i am caught in amber
to keep me pristine and to hide the darkness
blossoming within
some may call me a fraud
i am but a sheep that hides in wolves' clothing
i've ambitions to kill but i lack
the strength it takes to pull the trigger
until you return i am caught in amber
to keep me pristine and to hide the darkness
blossoming within
you seem so sure you want no more
this can't be true
i'm not for you
i'll fire my gun, pull you undone
show me what's left
heal my
distress
Track Name: Admirer
when i fall from grace will you look at me the same?
'cause someone's got to care about the two of us
we are actors running through the same lines
that lead us slowly to our last curtain calls
we have no remorse for the failures we've become
and we don't long to cure away our sicknesses
but i have longing in my heart for you near
it's only distance that i know how to fear
fate was all we had learned to trust
and our hearts are set on the futureless
we had built ourselves into fleshbound gods
just to see what's there beyond the walls we laid
and the sun grew tired of watching us expire
wasting years at a time devoured by homespun lies
so i'll seek your warmth as the darkness grows
douse the fire in me before it burns me down
