Track Name: The Future Repeats
Forget her sound
Forget she ever spoke
Forget her words that resonate within
And shape my past
The future will stay the same if I let her voice go
The future repeats until I can feel her soul

So stop me now
Stop me before I try
Try to regain my sanity
And lose the love inside
A lifetime enclosed subverts all attempts to unfold
But the future repeats until she can reach my soul

Forget my sound
Forget I ever spoke
Forgive my words that drove you off
The path that disappears
If past is a dream, in waking I let her voice go
The future repeats until I release her soul
Track Name: The Siren
Rescue me
The river’s serene
When frozen closed I won’t be seen

Clear the snow
The glass ice below
Reveals a face that’s frantic for air

Crystal eyes
Freeze shut with time
So shatter the icy shelf and
Set me free
Track Name: Hall Of Frozen Souls
Grey Matters
Sleeps between the dead and the live
Prisoner to the will of his night
Guided by a visionless sight
Further he roams
And a father knew it by
The moonlight of his eyes

Further he roams
Through vacant halls
With portraits drawn
Of ones he knew
Of ones he lost
Mother cries for him
An image hung in time
With tears she froze inside

Further he roams

And a woman calls to him
A flame to melt through ice
A love
Inside
Track Name: Rebirth
Rise
Through the storm
Clouded skies
He will rise

In snowless sleep
In silence
He will leave

Rise
Human soul
Human mind
All will go

In snowless sleep
In silence
