Track Name: The Garden In Vastarien
this garden grows in silence behind these walls
each petal holds a shattered heart
this garden grows in silence behind these walls
each thorn reflects a broken dream
Track Name: The Sound of Her Wings
She lifts her body from the floor
She's played their game far too long
A fire in her mind
The thread of forgiveness burned away

Pervasive ignorance
Weighs heavily on her heart
The willfully blind
Enrage her

When did the means become the end?
When did silence infect their heart?
Decisions made, hope abandoned
And limitations consume them

Her catacomb breath reflects
The stillness of the moon
She opens her eyes
She breaks her chains

She fills the air with the sound of her wings
No longer bound
She still believes
She fills the air with the sound of her wings
Her soul unfettered
Becomes the light

She fills the air with the sound of her wings
It has begun
She has become
She fills the air with the sound of her wings
They try to bind her
She will not break
Track Name: Carcosa
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink beneath the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead;
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.
Track Name: Cannot Reach Her
She drifts silently across the floor
An unseen purpose in her eyes
She glides between the lies with the weight of memory
All their words cannot reach her now
Some try to touch her, some recoil in fear
But their words cannot reach her here

She's been coming here since she was still alive
Even then she never quite belonged
She's on the outside, the fringes of the freaks
Decades pass and some things never change
She never asks for more, content with who she is
Jealosy cannot reach her here
All of the anger, all of the love
None of this can ever reach her here

Like a fog she dissipates, leaving with the dawn
All their words cannot reach her now
Lingering memories, mistaken for desire
All their words cannot reach her now
All of the anger, all of the love
None of this will ever reach her here
Track Name: Desert Sun
The desert sun is my companion
Though I have no destination
Expansive cruelty
I must endure
Holding on even as I fall

I'm not the man I was when this began
I've lost sight of the horizon
One by one
The pieces fall
And the remanants are forged anew

A thousand days
A thousand years
Time means nothing to me
Another step
Can I go on?
Is it too late to turn back?

I can't remember
How this began
I don't know if this will end
This metamorphosis
Keeps driving me
I need to know what I'll become

The desert sun
Leaves me abandoned
Even obsession sometimes sets
I still walk on
Through the bitter night
For me there is no turning back

I shed my memories
I shed my past
I embrace the change that comes
I learn the lessons that the
Desert taught
I stretch my arms out and touch the sky
