Track Name: Fable Moon
All my beginners luck
and somehow the traffics’ stuck
For all those times I lost
and too repeat them at any cost

I know that it feels like a fable moon
I will not get in the way or speak to soon

Not out of love in our fable moon
Give it our all so don’t speak too soon
Not out of love in our fable moon
Give it our all so don’t speak too soon
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Take my tallest tale
my cold heart, and life so frail

I know that it feels like a fable moon
I will not get in the way or speak to soon

Not out of love in our fable moon
Give it our all so don’t speak too soon
Not out of love in our fable moon
Give it our all so don’t speak too soon
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Free yourself before
free your heart before

Not out of love in our fable moon
Give it our all so don’t speak too soon
Free yourself before
free your heart before
Track Name: Home
Home in our hearts and in our minds
We’ve roamed and our clashing stars collide
Have you ever seen the gold? Have you ever seen the dust before?
Have you ever felt the cold? Or a hot long summers night on the shore?

Control what you can when you don’t know
or when your souls’ split from your skin and bones
Well i’ve never felt the fire. And i’ve never felt my life before
My situations’ dire. Cause I know I an’t been home before

Its in the sun when it rises and sets in the fall
In the door when it creeks down the forsaken hall
In the crowd in its laughter, and a soul in its trying days
in its trying days

And from the dirt to the sun to the cracks in the walls
It’s in your heart, I can tell by the way that you call
well Light up my fire and teach me well
show us all a little mercy and show us all that we’re the children now

Its in the sun when it rises and sets in the fall
In the door when it creeks down the forsaken hall
In the crowd in its laughter, and a soul in its trying days
in its trying days

Heart of darkness I have your number for
I called you up and you left me hanging on
Heart of darkness I have your number for
I called you up and you left me hang

Its in the sun when it rises and sets in the fall
In the door when it creeks down the forsaken hall
In the crowd in its laughter, and a soul in its trying days
in its trying days
Track Name: Supersonic
I’d be surprised if I learned that the heart of the matter is this
An equation so simple to solve it, you give a part of yourself that you’d miss
Well love is a fighter and i’m getting in every punch that I can
But when the final bell rang, you know I turned around just as soon as I ran

My heart is a home, and hon I don’t take invasion too light
Now when i’m alone, I think of nothing but of how to waste more time

Well now will you trust me, adjust please, cause I know just how this one can be
You said I ain’t that sure, I ain’t that pure, cause I know how to get out of paying the fees.
Well love is a fighter and i’m getting in every punch that I can
But when the final round ends, i’ll pretend I chose to stay here when I could have ran

My heart is a home, and hon I don’t take invasion too light
Now when i’m alone, I think of nothing but of how to waste more time
You are my heart attack
I put up the walls and keep back
Track Name: Refugee
I’m not so cold. I feel the blood in me rising back
Its like I’m turning the page, Lord, but i’m turning away from my habitat
or am I so wrong that I alter scenarios
so that they fit my description or get in the way of things and now you know
so there you go

In the clearest water of that thriving grace
In the deepest trench of blessings unembraced
Down the winding road of steps to be retraced
I’m a refugee, honey, taken from my place

And a path will light up for me
but right now i’m wandering hopeless, but feels like the most I can be right now
but I’m hoping somehow I know
That the weight of the world will change
and when i’m gone something remains and
nothing stays the same old thing

In the clearest water of that thriving grace
In the deepest trench of blessings unembraced
Down the winding road of steps to be retraced
I’m a refugee, honey, taken from my place
Taken from my place
Track Name: Thief In The Night
You could forget me, but I can’t forget you
If my memory serves me right
The silence is haunting the darkness and daylight
well just as long as your alright
Oh darlin’, please just be alright

A test of your patience. The dawn of your greatness.
If you care to walk that line.
A force to be reckoned, but not to be tainted
If you swear you’ll learn in time
Oh darlin’, please just walk that line

In the fertile valley of angels
with the softening touch of stone
like a thief in the night, like a warm summers night
you know we never forget our own
never forget our own

This epiphany wakened, its like a look in the mirror
It’s like i’m staring back in time
And I can’t help but force it. I can’t help but wonder.
If i’m slipping though the lines
Oh darlin’, save me just in time.

In the fertile valley of angels
with the softening touch of stone
like a thief in the night, like a warm summers night
you know we never forget our own
never forget our own

In the fertile valley of angels
with the softening touch of stone
like a thief in the night, like a warm summers night
you know we never forget our own
never forget our own

In the fertile valley of angels
with the softening touch of stone
like a thief in the night, like a warm summers night
you know we never forget our own
never forget our own
