Track Name: Underneath The Roses
I've been fashioning a spear
From the stones you threw
Filling my pockets with the gold of fools

I've been catching my death of cold
chipping the ice with ancient tools
watching the sunlight fade from view

Ooh If i'm an island
Then you're the boat
And I'm coming home

I've been working hard
See these marks across my palms
But all these weapons are yours if you need them more

Ooh If i'm an island
Then you're the boat
And I'm coming home

You'll find me there
You'll find me there
Underneath the roses
You're the one who rose this cross I bear
Track Name: Come Alive
It's the virtue in her eyes
That cages the lions in her mind
When they close they come alive
Blood runs deep through a clenched fist
It takes the coldness from her touch
It brings the colour to her blush

There will be no sweetness to the taste
When you choose to consume and not create
If that is your goal let it swallow you whole
When all your mirrors have been broken
You will find no rose tint to the glass
And a closed door to the past

And if that is your goal let it swallow you whole
When she closes her eyes they come alive

You dealt with the demons she though you lost
Laid waste to her reason and suffered the cost
Now her smile is brighter than it ever was
Guess you learnt the hard way of how to love
Track Name: Since I Heard Your Voice
The water runs cold
Down the hill
And your daughter so old
Lies still

Do you know
My heart beats slow
For you

Just trying to hold on

These brakes are worn
And these rails are gone
Its been so long
Since I've heard your voice

The trail you left
Has grown so clear
And the waves you kept
From Coming in

Do you know
These winds they blow
Towards you

Just trying to hold on

These brakes are worn
And these rails are gone
Its been so long
Since I've heard your voice
Track Name: Walk These Walls
You don't live so far
From the edge
So you don't work as hard
For it

The tunnels they go on but you stay scared
We can walk these walls together you know I care
Unaware to the beauty you saved me from
We can walk these walls together but i know you're gone

Could you be so sure
Could you believe it all
If I say
We can leave tonight
Chase our weakness together
Brave the beasts and the weather
We'll go on

You don't fight for your cause
So don't know what its like to fall

The tunnels they go on but you stay scared
We can walk these walls together you know I care
Unaware to the beauty you saved me from
We can walk these walls together but i know you're gone

Could you be so sure
Could you believe it all
If I say
We can leave tonight
Chase our weakness together
Brave the beasts and the weather
We'll go on

Catch me now
I'm falling


Could you be so sure
Could you believe it all
If I say
We can leave tonight
Chase our weakness together
Brave the beasts and the weather
We'll go on


The tunnels they go on but you stay scared
We can walk these walls together you know I care
Unaware to the beauty you saved me from
We can walk these walls together but i know you're gone
Track Name: Closer To The Shore
I'll be your hideout
I'll be your stone
I'll be the fires
That guide you home
Whats been lost
Can be returned
And whats forgotten
Can still be taught

And if you lead I will follow
Dragged from the deep back to the shallows

My clothes are wet my hands are numb
But I'm closer to the shore
Caught in the wreak the storm had won
You must have heard my call

I've been broken
And I've been torn
Lost to the ashes
And so far gone
But all these ties
Can be resewn
And what's left afloat
Can still remain strong

And if you lead I will follow
Dragged from the deep back to the shallows

My clothes are wet my hands are numb
But I'm closer to the shore
Caught in the wreak the storm had won
You must have heard my call
