Track Name: Intro(Snow)/Why Would I (Pt 1&2)
Pt 1:
I walk down a brightly lit hallway-
I can see to it's end
I can't turn around and
against this I can't defend

If I can't change this
Then I wish I didn't know

Pt 2:
I don't want to shy away
I will return to that lighted lake
one day and I-
I don't want to go back home
I'll just wander 'round making footprints
in the snow and I

Promise to you
That I'll be there when you leave
and I'll be back by three
and I won't be back
and i wish I didn't know

Spring will too soon stain the trees
and I'll lose what made me "me"
as the leaves they die
and they fall back to the ground
Forming brightly colored mounds
and I'm back to where

I started from
and I'll be there until they leave
and I'll be back by three
and I'll promise this
and I wish i didn't know
Track Name: Untitled
I am sitting on a couch
Watching my good friend's mouth
as he talks about our old friend
and how he'll never be that person again

I'm just too far away to change anything nowadays

I am looking at that game I used to play
as I tell you that tomorrow will be a better day
and even if its not
and it is just how you thought
it would be

I'm just too far away to change anything nowadays
Track Name: Song About Sounds
I cannot say why
Blue sounds gave me my life
I am not sure if they
Will rise from the morning today

But without them
I might not have risen
This morning

Fourteen days have passed
Since I thanked them last
But I was not sure if i would
Today or if I even could

But without them
I might not have risen
This morning
Track Name: Separate the Curtains (Pt 1&2)
I can't tell if your eyes are closed
blue billowing curtains hide the stage
Will they open soon? That bookcase in your room
Will shed each and every page

Lie down in your bed
and look up at fluorescent stars
Stuck not so high above your head
Protecting you

I can't tell if you are smiling
if i could the situation would
be so very nice and your niceness
Makes me feel quite so very good
and so very bad for being that one
who had always thought he could

Lie down in your bed
and look up at fluorescent stars
Stuck not so high above your head
Protecting you
Like I could
not do
