Track Name: Vehicle
riddle tale tongue
never speak a word beyond
no one has to know
we stole away
dead as the ghost of a dream
the trick is allways ours to keep
for dare and farewell
the ground to leave

i take it on
the illutions of your heart
for what i’ve lost
you still got

a cut upon the skies
don’t look down but close your eyes
never to be found
swept out to sea
in rumble and quake i repose
slowly i forget of those
we have left behind
and chased away

i take it on
all creations of your heart
for what i’ve lost
you still got
in a time that never waits
is a youth that never fades
but gone we are gone
off we’re off
Track Name: A Murder of Crows
hand
shook its hand
felt a claw in my palm

eyes
with closed eyes i run
‘till blindfold falls of by dawn

yeah i am drawn by
sunrise, but clear skies are doomed,
with gust and gloom
say why in daylight i’m lost
struck and tossed
believe it was bigger than me

mouth
sharpest mouth
hold your breath steal one kiss

heart
place your hope in a chest
and do return to the mist

for i am drawn by
sunrise, but clear skies are doomed,
with gust and gloom
say why in daylight i’m lost
struck and tossed
believe it was bigger than me

and no more will be said
‘bout whatever rose from dead
leave and let it rest
leave and let it rest

moonrise, and clear skies are mine,
this time entwined
in starlight, in our night i’m found
safe and sound
believe it was bigger than me

and no more will be said
‘bout whatever rose from dead
leave and let it rest
leave and let it rest
Track Name: Away
sweetheart trace your trails
to the lake we swam into
or do you know the way
to find me there again?

in your turning sleep
in my wicked dreams I fall
fall and fall away
for dark nights we dissolve into

sweetheart trace your trails
to the tree that stole the wind
where love sick children hide
only to be found

don’t you be affraid
don’t you know its all a dream
days are what we own
for dark nights we dissolve into

you should know I am never gone
you should know I am always here
don’t you be fooled by light again
and the dark nights we dissolve into
Track Name: Something in the Sky
before the storm comes up
before the sky becomes too dark
you should run
should we become estranged
i’ll know

you got carried away
by the whirling dance
to forget me

hold down your flowing gown
hold down your kite and stay on ground
you might fly along
but if you’re gone
i’ll know

you got carried away
by the whirling dance
to forget your home

theres something in the Sky
theres something in the Sky
theres something in the Sky
theres something in the Sky

before the storm comes up
before the sky becomes too dark
you should run
should we become estranged
i’ll know

you got carried away
by the whirling dance
to forget
Track Name: The Still Kids
behold your bones got long
before you knew
inside a wedded song
we drew
away into a dream
towards a sullen gleam
and i can go on
within

i crash into the light
stumble through your house
you're not home
why’d you ever leave?
cover not your ghost
in that i do believe

there is a buried tale
now to retell
an old book
to reopen well
reverse it and renew
unfold the curse of you
and we could make a right
this time

i crash into the light
stumble through your house
you're not home
thought you’d never leave
cover not your ghost
it belongs to me

shades of the calling everhaunt
don’t give in before i got what i long for
what i’ve allways longed for
in sleeplings hallowed vehicle
we all go on upon it all

cover not your ghosts
lead them off to me

for good or for long?
for now or forever?
how long am i without you?
Track Name: Weasel Bite
take darkness if it’s what you want
inside of it I fought alone and lost
light came to save and she framed my will
by love
by all she could give

yeah leeches we have grown apart
cool kisses couldn’t keep my heart in place
i’m of to whatever suits my hope
for she
stole the key to your wardrobe

come on
bite on
feed on
mistakes I have lied asleep
for long
too long
in songs of songs

come take my place in this parade
my wooden sword I’ve thrown away I have
tomb tunes and sad songs
belongs to you
beyond
be all you dreamed of

take darkness if it’s what you want
inside of it I fought alone and lost
light came to save and she framed my will
by love
by all she could give

come on
bite on
feed on
mistakes I have lied asleep
for long
too long
in songs of songs
for long..

she is a sparkle of child
she is the strange of my smile
she is my sweet revenge
she is my sudden change
