Track Name: In Delirium
Thickness [is] in the air and I can feel it, filling me inside, reminding me [that] the heat will soon overcome all I am.

"When being alone is all that you know
You forget how to swim, forget how to float"
"If you can't live with yourself then how could you ever know how to love?"
When winter is but a memory
I'll "grab the hand of the one I've kept close to me"
"set aside ambivalence" and "disregard the consequences of trust."

Sight may insist that all hell would persist
"Clarity finds us only after the fear of heartbreak subsides"
When I slow down to catch my breath
My vision clears and I can see that I am the only thing I have left

Regret is a voice that can't be silenced
Blindness ends with retrospect, sight that would make any man
beg to be blind again, free from the notion that this could have all been avoided

I would give anything to go back
and put back the pieces that I now lack
Selfish reactions and countless distractions
I'm still myself but it's only a fraction
Put all my faith in the words that you said
Trusting so easy I'll soon end up dead
I'm starting to think that I'm better off
moving on
I'm better off
moving on
Track Name: No Solace
The cold months are upon us
Eyes focus on the breath in the air
And I can feel my bones
Frozen beneath my skin
But I can't hear your voice
Am I to maintain the belief
That the unseen is somehow there?

Vague is the memory
Of a version of myself
Confident in the confidence
Of an ever present Lord

I overheard a conversation
I could see her pain
Cloaked in the comfort
Of calling your name
When I held her hand
I felt the summer warmth

But the sun has since departed

I was standing in the doorway of
That same house where they grew their love
I was trying to pick up the pieces
Of an old man's heart

I wanted to see her soul slip away
To heaven or hell or nowhere at all
Hoping that would bring me some clarity
Remove the fog from this wintry lens
The one that keeps me up at night
Placing blame on the pale moonlight

The one that keeps me up at night

I knew I couldn't save her
I just wanted to say goodbye
Put to rest all of my doubt
Or open my eyes to new light

One last song together
So I could see that glow fill her eyes
Before her body leaves this earth
I just want to say goodbye
