Track Name: Too Early
Breaking down doors you locked yourself
This was never good for your health
You’re the one who said you wanted to go
Now you say you’re not okay
But it’s alright for you to feel this way
If you wanted to go, you should have known

It’s too early for bats
And I’m not going back
No I’m not going back
It’s too early for bats
You will be the last
The last to leave the dark
It’s too early for bats.

Here you go raging in the stars
Telling me that we won’t go far
I know I want you to go
I was upset and you were upset
And I thought
It was done but it isn’t over yet
Open wounds I can see that your pain is real

It’s too early for bats
And I’m not going back
No I’m not going back
You can’t live in the past
You will be the last
The last to leave the dark
Track Name: Drifting Pictures
When I go to sleep
I slip away
And every night I dream
That I’m awake

Close my eyes and get lost in my head
My eyes open
But I’m not awake

Every night my dreams are real
Touch me just to feel
These drifting pictures
In my head
They’re going to be here every day.

Please don’t tell me to have sweet dreams
I wake up every time (in the middle of the night)
Confused about the moment
And what is real

It feels too real
Track Name: Only You
Only you

I hear you screaming
And crying my name
But I can’t find you
I don’t know where you could be

Only you
Can make me wander through the night
Can show me darkness holds the light

Only you
Can make me wander through the trees
Can make me beg ‘til I’m on my knees
I hear you screaming
And crying my name
But I can’t find you
Don’t leave me to blame

Believe me
When I say
That there is only you
Track Name: Trip to the Moon
The ground is so cold up there
I never really cared
For anybody here

Well I’m so sick of all your lying
And every day you say you’re trying
I can never be myself
I just want to be somewhere else

I’m better off to say
Going up anyway
The moon is on my mind
I’m better off to say
No return today
And everything is fine
I know I’m right
I’ll be gone tonight

We are only leafless trees
Tied together by lies and memories
Every day, they’re all the same to me

Everything is fine
I’m better

I know I’m right
I’ll be gone tonight
Just think of me as yesterday
I’m gone now, a memory
On a trip to the moon
Track Name: Nightfall
I see you out tonight
As pines fall to the ground
I follow you out
Without a sound
The trees become a maze
The fog becomes a haze
Where are we now?
There is no sound

Waited for the night
To come alive
And when the darkness falls
Beneath the sky
We come alive
Track Name: Reflections
Another night goes by
And I leave my mind
Don’t like the feeling
My ears are ringing
And every day I lose
Another hour
What is real is out of reach

I look in the mirror to see
But the one looking back is not me
I tell myself to breathe
Go away, go away

I write down every thought
That comes to mind
Check my reflection twice
I pick up the pace now
I never sleep at night
There’s too much on my mind
Don’t know what will happen
When I close my eyes

Look myself in the eyes
Track Name: Can't Say Goodbye
Yesterday was the day you said goodbye
You’re not okay
But we have to do these things sometimes
You were my only friend
This cannot be your end

I’ll see you tonight

They say dead is better
But I can’t ever say goodbye

The only thing I can do is watch the clock
And wait for you
If you’re not the same
I don’t want to know the truth
Never going back again
This cannot be your end
Track Name: Before the Rain
I feel you near
When I close my eyes
And I’m not the same
Like clouds before the rain
All your fears
In disguise
You’re not the same
Dark clouds before the rain

A walk in the dark
Without any sight
I feel you in the day
And I see you in the night
One story down
I follow your lead
Watch windows close
It isn’t what it seems

Once you take hold of me
Let go of me
And kill it all
I feel something here with me
Buried beyond the wall

Beyond the wall
