Mirror Maze 05:08
The nights are getting longer I wake up before the light If I can make it to the solstice Maybe I will be alright I wander through a mirror maze A thousand faces met my gaze I didn't know Which way to go, which way to go which way to go... There are memories in our muscles There’s a spill that leaves a stain There’s a sound after the silence The resonance remains I wander through a mirror maze A thousand faces met my gaze I didn't know Which way to go, which way to go which way to go I wander through a mirror maze A thousand faces met my gaze They said don't wait You're too late, too late, too late They said don't wait You're too late, too late, too late...

Up In Smoke 03:56
And they came with a feeling And they left through the ceiling Empty rooms, locks of hair Missing shoes, heavy air They were broke Up in smoke Strike a match, watch it burn Ashes blow from the urn And they float to the skies And the moon doesn’t rise Cause it broke Up in smoke Strike a match, watch it burn Say a prayer, it’s your turn To exhale from the core Yours is mine, mine is yours Though we broke Up in smoke

Mendelssohn, oh draw me in Mendelssohn, where do I begin? Changing our names Closing our eyes Pulling a voice Up from inside We sing songs without words Songs without words Mendelssohn, oh draw me in Mendelssohn, where do I begin? Sisters in land Sisters in song Holding our hands Now from beyond We sing songs without words Songs without words

Walk with me spirit Down streets you used to know What’s behind the curtain A broken window A broken window The middle mourns its empty shell The sea became a wishing well Where ghosts will Follow, follow, follow... Walk with me spirit Down streets you might have known What’s behind the curtain A broken telephone A broken telephone The spectre calls, I turn to him I reach out for his phantom limb Where ghosts will Follow, follow, follow...

Hear I'm calling Softly Dear I'm falling Catch me Hear I've spoken Softly Dear I'm broken Fix me
