Track Name: Love Has Truly Come
Down in the south sea I thought I felt our breath in the cool breeze above my head and, in the seagulls that cried out above, I thought I heard our love.

Together we'll float against the tide. It's really not so hard so long as you try. And if you get tired, just look to the sun. When we reach the land we'll run.

And I never knew that we could come this far and I never knew that it could be this hard, but then again I've never known anything like you, my love. And our feet hit that soft green earth and the sun it smiles over our hard work, and I know our love has truly come.
Track Name: Little Acorn Child
I was an acorn child; a baby, not even old enough to speak. My head inclined to the south sea, so strong while I was weak.

I am a sapling, let me grow. Clouds, you see me don't you know, your tears when you cry they let me grow? So please let them show.

She was a flower under a basket. She was shy didn't catch an eye. And as the sun turned my green leaves brown, she caught mine.

For a while we were like two dandelions, slowly drifting in the wind, our stalks entangled in mystery, tumultuous whirlwinds of sin. But the winds they shifted and the tide it lifted and both of us shifted away.

Now I am a proud oak tree with little acorns, my own. And my bark is dark and my bark is deep hiding little fissures unshown. And often I think of her nectar so sweet smelling, so sweet I needed a taste. But her draught was bitter and black as the night and it left a ravaging trace.
Track Name: Siren Song
Angel of Light, come sit next to me. Angel of Light, sing sweet words to me. I've been lost and confused, beaten and bruised. Come, sit next to me.

And sing , sing me a song, a song of distraction, a song to numb, a song to forget, a song of slumber. Oh sweet siren, sing.

Sing me a song, young siren of love, sing me a song that makes me believe. Your words they whisper and grow louder still. Sing me a song that takes away ill.

And sing , sing me a song, a song of distraction, a song to numb, a song to forget, a song of slumber. Oh sweet siren, sing.

Sweet Incapacitation, flow over me and stay for a while for my heart does bleed. Oh siren of love, your words capture me and whisk me away to a land that is free.

And sing , sing me a song, a song of distraction, a song to numb, a song to forget, a song of slumber. Oh sweet siren, sing.

Angel, you flee me, your song withers away and all that is left is a soul in decay. But siren I’ll call you if ever the hour, that my heart is hardened and my mind is cast under.

And sing , you'll sing me a song, a song of distraction, a song to numb, a song to forget, a song of slumber. Oh sweet siren, sing.
Track Name: Now I Miss Its Shade
I once was a perfect me who would swing from my father's tree, and I once was so filled with truth that I would shine over everything that I would do.

Every word my father would say would be taken and I'd obey, and he would lead me to the stream and I would fly to mountains and grasses green.

And now it seems that those days are gone and I would never tell him the things I've done; how I took all that he taught me and how, in a dreadful rage, I chopped down his tree.

And now I miss its shade, and my skin burns everyday.

Daddy, daddy, daddy, dad.
Track Name: Let Me Go
Of all the people in the world, my love, you fell into one who was not deep enough. And I thought this box inside my chest would suit you just fine, but you were dissatisfied all this time.

And I swear I loved you all I could, but it's true the things I gave to you were made of wood when I suppose you wanted something more fine; something to reflect your face as it shines.

I still see our picture in my mind, with our lips together and our fingers entwined. I imagine you sitting on my bed, when I've drunk far too much and it goes to my head.

But please, my sweet, take me home. Take me back.

And please, my sweet, let me go. Let me go.
Track Name: Somewhere Back There
Can you hold on a bit, my dear? I never wanted to bring us here. It was only of slight concern, but it's taken us years to learn

That the times that we shared, they disappeared somewhere back there. And the love that we had, it all went bad without the proper care. And I could try to revitalize our lives, but you say you won't have it. And though we're still in love, I can tell from your shove that we're just creatures of habit.

But I'll still pretend to hold your hand whenever I'm walking. And how can I ignore your shoes by my door? Whenever I come in, they remind me

That the times that we shared, they disappeared somewhere back there. And the love that we had, it all went bad without the proper care. And I could try to revitalize our lives, but you say you won't have it. And though we're still in love, I can tell from your shove that we're just creatures of habit.

And my phone used to sing, but now it just rings 'cause you never call me. You say it's for the best but I cannot pass the same judgement.
