Track Name: Emoting
Emoting

When I think it dawns on me
what i know is all i keep
several years of silence gleam
next to bricks of worthless speech

and I intend to wait again
for the spark inside of me
that signals me to feel again
feel the silent part of me and I wait

I long to know myself
emoting
they wrote of me

thirsty years of lacking strength
barely there for me to see
confidence in time alone
reassured by older me

and I intend to wait alone
for the spark inside of me
that signals me to feel again
feel the silent part of me and I wait

I long to know myself
emoting
they wrote of me

here is but a memory
not for me to understand
time could wrap me up likewise
find the sum of me here... alive
Track Name: Breaking the Stone
Breaking the Stone

As he grows
the boundaries of his knowledge shape his views
and choose their prey
time slides by
but nothing he can grab onto will keep him anchored down

I need to release myself and make a me with new eyes that see the waste
why he paints his life this way, he may never find out
for it's too late

I release myself from this cold now bound for me
and I try breaking the stone
while I teach myself about which path's best for me
still i try breaking the stone

babies eyes, a heart of hopes and dreams
i know I'll die if unfulfilled
desperate cries, announcing all my secrets
to the souls who came inside

I dream of packaging myself
and offering to the world what's left in me
please, I need my life this way
don't attempt to engage me in some change

I release myself from this cold now bound for me
and I try breaking the stone
while I teach myself about which path's best for me
still i try breaking the stone

please, I need my life this way
Track Name: Green
Green

this type of thought will stalk you home.
can't help but wonder… god forbid you know.
some breed of thoughtless malts we are.
compared with nothing… still not much at all.

anything at all I meet with doubt
will be a treat in time, like a surprise.
so you think god just reads your thoughts?
well he leaves me to mine, my doubting mind.

these neatly crafted lives we find...
though mine holds nothing, something needs to go.
how can god be, when I'm so bored?
our purpose construct, not external law.
