Track Name: Inner Harbor
The full-grown son of an arrow
Whose hands are free,
A lonely ghost in the ocean
The chance they sent to me,
Where the notes huddle together,
Is there room for him?
Not enough time to remember
To collect all the sin
(After sin)

All of the old ways of thinking
A little luck, a little numb
All the despair, the crying and drinking
Deep in the august sun
Trouble awaits behind every doorway
Shakes the dust down to my bed
Trying so hard to ignore them
To send someone in my stead
(In my stead)
Track Name: Terribilita
Burning in effigy,
All that's inside of me
Bleeding through self-blinded eyes
Circle of agony,
Hellish cacophony
Deafens with too many lies

Voiceless, a conscience speaks
Answers that fall too meek
Torments from deep inside
The face in the mirror laughs
Like some distorted mask
Revealing there’s nowhere to hide
Track Name: Rebecca at the Well
In the cold of the moment
Dip into the well
For words that drown unspoken
Another soul to sell

If we were less than human
We could escape ourselves
But every feeling is broken
There’s nothing left to tell
Like welcome to a stranger
We embrace in sleep
Shaking hands with danger
And falling through the deep
Track Name: Eve Separated
In the dark waters standing still at dusk
Looking like prey in the eyes of hawks
Strangers are friends in this wondrous blue
By that boarded house sleeping in at noon

Looking for what slept there in the time and tide
There’s a penny in the tray so I raised my knife
Ambled out for love, open mouth in vain
Demanding to be measured after you went away

My dreams arose
Name and all scarcely shown
From sleep awaken
You always cross it alone

Walking empty handed, bent down low between
Fever-felled, that brittle bridge is not a dream
They never broke the silence, wringing their thin hands
Bright small shells lying in the sand.

Watching, I wandered
Along the boat and shore
I thought about how long
The road would let me endure
Track Name: Jones Falls
Dry my dreaming
And you are bare
You make my path so narrow
Five times arising there

I found myself wanting
Passing as all things do
Fading and falling
A dream of fifty two

Nothing out of nowhere
Falling to the sea
Something into somewhere
Falling out of me
Track Name: An Allegory of Want
Craving sleep
For words too steep
To turn the night’s
Love to spite

Without want
Mocked and gaunt
Stretched out straight
It's all too late for us

Grains of sand
Through my hands
Worse than death
Easy as theft

Every man
Falls or stands
In a race
To find his way back home
