Track Name: Apparition (Part 1)
The chimney smoke keeps me barely here
In this room, a quiet despair
Six years since you left me on the ledge
My love couldn’t help break your fall
Your ghost lingers present in the scent
Your touch just as real as before

Why are you still with me?
Drifting in and out
Why do you follow me?
And Taunt me with your memory.
Track Name: Destroyed. Forgotten.
I’m running through the wasteland
From a life that wasn’t real
The path that leads me onwards
Is almost like a dream
Is there no way to...


Escape this life
Your heart – I feel it breaking
What was, is now
Destroyed
Forgotten

See inside the window
The face that never came
Hollowed and forgotten
The guestbook reads his name
If you meet again, tell him that I prayed


Gates open to the middle realm
And every night I see them rise
Frost covers all memory
And blankets my past life

My days gone
Now a maudlin effigy
Stands where I said goodbye to the world
Destroyed; Forgotten.

What was, is now
Destroyed
Forgotten
Track Name: Lifeless
Up and over the railing
Keeping the tracks from escaping
Running faster than the water ran cold
Bleeding you deeper than the hole that I dug
The steam trains that now block your path
Are the same ones we rode when we were infants
The faint drizzle that fell on that day
Has lead you to the tar pit you now call your grave

The moment is changing, your colour is fading
Your sweet aroma – now wretched decay
Peaceful in your final pose
A final smile captured your revenge

Fading, failing piece by piece
Nothing of you but your photo remains
Sniff the air and fragrance is plasma
The kiss of death; the most romantic of them all

Fall to your knees
And cry for freedom
Your eloquent ways cannot save
The passing of your final days

Wealthy is the ferryman that sails the River Styx (Row them all astray)
After all where else your soul supposed to fade away? (All will fade away)
Ignorance is a welcome gift to those who want a piece (Come and take your fill)
Remembering the lessons learnt after all the guilt has torn them lifeless

Lifeless

Up and over the railing
Frantic, Kicking and screaming
Dying faster than you can behold
Glimmer of hope then the moment is gone
The steam trains that now block your path
Are the same ones we rode when we were infants
The faint drizzle that fell on that day
Has lead you to the tar pit you now call your grave
Track Name: Whitecross
I see the clouds block out the sun
The rain now it starts to come
Something tells me I’ve been here before

History true
The land will take you in its grace
These hills, they speak more truth than your lies
Tonight
The forest closes in on you
Makes you feel the wonder of its power
Tomorrow is now, today is yesterday

Then my eyes begin to close
I realise I know something
I’m coming back
I’m coming back again
When I see her gentle smile
I realise I know one thing
She’s coming back
She’s coming back again

Mist falls over of Whitecross
Bathing nature in the night
Tears glide off her shoulder
Painting nature with her life
When the hills kiss the clouds
The land and the sky reunite
We have something special
Hidden from the candlelight
Track Name: The Silent Atonement
Verse

As I look down to the ground
My headstone turns to ash
Fragments of a life once lived
Submitted to the past
To a realm of insignificance

My memories are like tapestries
Growing more prescious as they age
My soul, just a whisper away
From decendants that don’t even know I can see

Verse

Watch my son have a son of his own
See the baby grow into a man
View the obsticles in their life as if I were living through them
See my grandson lay a bouquet of flowers down on his fathers grave
I know he lived the life he wanted
I hope heaven is where his soul lays

Chorus

Will anyone remember me at all?
Will my life seem somehow interesting?
I hope I have impacted you somehow
I’m forced to re-live all the mistakes that I’ve made through you
The mistakes that I’ve made Through you

Bridge

Rotting… In a realm between life and death
I know where I am but I don’t know where I’m going

½ Verse

This era is far from home
I left the world one hundred years ago
dwelling in this lifeless realm
The ages tear my legacy apart

Bridge

Why?
I wanted to touch the divine
I want to rest amoung the clouds
The mountains of the sky

Verse

Watch my son have a son of his own
See the baby grow into a man
View the obsticles in their life as if I were living through them
See my grandson lay a bouquet of flowers down on his fathers grave
I know he lived the life he wanted
I hope heaven is where his soul lays

Chorus

Will anyone remember me at all?
Will my life seem somehow interesting?
I hope I have impacted you somehow
I’m forced to re-live all the mistakes that I’ve made through you
The mistakes that I’ve made through you
Track Name: Apparition (Part 2)
Wait for me
To change soon
Feel safe
I’m coming
Coming to you now

Why are you still with me?
I hold your ghost in my arms
Your touch just as real as before
Track Name: Darkness Encloses
Twisted in shape… an Imbalanced form
Like fingers of Gods the lightning evokes the storm
Tangled steel the wreckage lay out on the road
A sudden hush falls over the gathering crowd
The Angel calls...

“Come to me, your future beckons beyond the sea.
You were man but death was your destiny”

Pain through the core
But yet, somehow there is still warmth
Can I breathe now? Am I here now?!
Blurred imagery
A lighthouse from the ghostly shore
Guides me, engulfs me

Life’s Flame Dredged and Forged
Rocked in death’s sleepless hold
I seek out a way
I remember yesterday

Try to guess
How will this end?
It arrives
Just close your eyes

Darkness encloses

Seeking out the way in which to go
Ear drums blasting to your final song
Mirror looks to mirror and reflection is askew
Melting imagery of the person that was you
Destination has arrived
Upon the wings of your enclosing darkness


Life’s Flame Dredged and Forged
Rocked in death’s sleepless hold
I seek out a way
I remember yesterday
Track Name: Touched By The Air
There’s something in the air I breathe
A fleeting feeling I can’t believe
When I turn around to see
The touch is just transparency
If only I could reach the shore
Every day I would spend, looking for that which is mine

Why are you trying to hide?
There’s something in the air I breathe
Lavish darkness unto me
When I am old and almost gone
I’ll seek the hatred in your soul

Graceless touch from the air I breathe
The mist of your spirit surrounds me
Silence comes at the worst of times
Even then I hear you breathe
Come back to me

There’s something in the air I breathe
Lavish darkness unto me
When I am old and almost gone
I’ll tell you that you’re not alone

Finding a way
To get inside my head now
It seems a must have come here
Completely uninvited
I’ll take away this sadness
And put it in a bottle
Send it off across the ocean
Never to be seen again
Sadness never to be seen again
Send it off across the ocean
Track Name: Take Me
Fly from the trees
Give me your all
Make me believe
That this is not all

Unspoken, unseen
A bond that feels no aging
Someday we’ll watch the sea
When time has shifted

Take me
Make me be your fire
Take me
Plant me in your soil

Why
Is it so hard to lie to myself?
I will go on dreaming
Time
Will tell if the dream was worth dreaming
Or the urge is left bleeding

Eyes glance across the room
I look within myself
The answers can’t be read from page to page
Time will only tell
Track Name: Final Embrace
Stretching time caused a relapse
Now all is unknown
This conflict was born from ignorance

I am lost in this world
In this lost world of the damned
Sinking faster into this lost world

You speak through transparency
But I know that you’re there


This is the last apparition
The final embrace
Woman to her man
Man to her essence
The final embrace

Your dark emotions surround me
You have stolen my light.
Whispering my name
My immortal death-wish
Pull me down
Hold me in the eternal darkness

Tainted, painted colours of cold
Hating all feeling
It’s the end of the world
Tears drip from the blood red sky
It’s the end of the world
Track Name: Essence of the fog
Falling from the sky
I see you all alone
In the flash of the light
Your presence is now known

Rising
Feeding
There’s a mist in the air



Foul power
Amongst us
Your soul dives into mine
Your hatred
Your anger, Cannot compare with mine

Deep greed
Strong selfishness
Traits we do not share
Your curse - your weakness
Just a shallow scare

Wait for your god
To deliver you from your haunted world
Essence of the fog
Your crimson eyes reflect your agony
Drift back to the shore

Wretched
Howling
The stench of ectoplasm lingers strong

We want to see through
This world to the other
But we want to do so
For our own selfish reasons
If you could find
Yourself in another
Would you stop or just walk by?


Broken by your greed
Through moist fog you cry
You and all you hate
Blinded by all that is, now you are forever mine
Track Name: Oceans
I can see that you are waiting for something that you know will never come
I can see that you are hurting from the one you’ve come to love. Where is he now?

In time your eyes will match the sky
You’ll fall into a world you always knew was there
In Ten years your feet will touch the sand
You’ll cast your soul into the deepest oceans

I can see that you are earning, saving to get so far away from here
And I can see that you are yearning to be the amongst the clouds and silver moon

I see your future coming clearer
Take a look inside your very reason
You know it is untrue
Don’t you?

I can see that you’re becoming
A shadow of the person that you were
I can see that you are dying
A death that you once hoped you’d never have
Track Name: Drifting through dream
Close your eyes
Touch the sky
Breathe your longest breath
You’re alive

Your plight is ending
It is accomplished
Now you are home again
While I drift through dream

Embrace your sweet closure
Immersed in a sea of divinity
I know where you’ll be
Drifting through dream

At peace finally
Atoned silently
I can see you now
Drifting through dream
