Track Name: Gravedigger
Gravedigger! You'll never find what you're looking for.
You've got your map all laid out, and nowhere to run.
Gravedigger! Believe me when I say
There's a ghost inside these wall, and it's angry.

Don't raise the dead they'll always swallow your insides.
No man alive can survive the dark curse of memory.
And when the sky fades out we all fall into nothing.
And when the sky fades out...

I see through eyes that aren't my own.
I wear this skin and it's getting old.
I'm drifting through a room just a passerby,
And I'll float through the walls to the other side.

I'll keep on digging 'til I can't breathe
Alone inside these memories.
And I'd give it up for a second chance
To find my way out of this place, out of here.

Buried, buried alive.

(I've lost my breath)

Gravedigger! There's no more air to breathe.
You're stuck in this tomb.
Gravedigger! The walls are closing in.
You're stuck in this tomb.
Track Name: Chameleon
I walk with you naïve companion.
Armor you for another battle.
No one knows you like I do.
No one know what we've been through.

But now you're accepted,
And you've found yourself so many loyal friends
Who'd leave you in an instant
If you ever needed anything from them.

I regret you today, shameful chameleon.
You make yourself believe in lies.
No one fakes it like you do.
You change your colors to help you hide.

And now I've accepted
That misdirection is the root of all your ways.
When your friends have gone
You're left alone to die with your mistakes.

There was a time when you and I
Were so inseparable,
But now when I see you
You're almost invisible.

Chameleon

You change your colors to the world around you.
You change your colors to help you hide.

Everything about you
Has become dull and grey.
And everyone you value
Meant nothing.
Track Name: Arsonists
Your money flows while our anger grows,
Continuously turning you to violence
Magnifying the darkest part of you
While we've unmasked your face .
You're just a filthy creature crawling in the dirt.
Another product of the vicious world.

We won't get the chance to watch you wither away.
You will go down in flames.
And when the last of you has burned up,
We won't mourn at all.
We'll just remember how you stood so tall...

Using us all
Until you saw your kingdom fall.
We looked so small
Until you saw your kingdom fall.

Now you see our faces rush you
And you feel the fear we've felt.
When you know it's almost over,
regret comes pouring out.
I'm sorry sir, but I'm afraid
You can't buy your way out this time.

You saw your kingdom fall...


We won't get the chance to watch you wither away.
You will go down in flames.
And when the last of you has burned up,
We won't mourn at all.
We'll just remember how you stood so tall...

Using us all
Until you saw your kingdom fall.
We looked so small
Until you saw your kingdom fall.

Using us all
Until we made your kingdom fall.
We looked so small
Until we made your kingdom fall.
Track Name: Indigo
Hey little miss in your summer dress.
It's been too long since I saw you last.
Would you like to join me on the balcony?
We can kill some time and do nothing.

And in the heat of the summer's soft sun,
When all the wine and weed are gone
Time pops like a bubble and bursts
Into a thousand shimmering suns

That float on the skin
And on your eyelids.
And you start to glow
Bright Indigo.

Hey little bluebell, and your east coast swing.
Tell me about Boston, and tell me about rain.
'Cause the Colorado sun has been wearing me down,
And my hearts been heavy since you left this town.

But yet you're sitting right next to me
Under the shade of this pine tree
Where the miles melt into minutes,
And each syllable is infinite.
Our bodies break in the evening light.
Our spirits slip into the river's flow.
A colorful cloud against the black and white.
A subtle song in the afterglow.

And I wish we didn't have to go
Back down the world below.
And I wish that we could stay like this forever,
But you know there's always change in the weather,

So I sing...

Goodbye my love, goodbye my indigo girl.
You know you'll always be mine.
Track Name: Truth
I am weak to your embrace
and that's why I've remained
you know the ugly side of me
and have yet to turn away

how could I repay you
by writing you a song?
there's no melody that could explain
how I've felt all along
and no one could replace
this feeling that you give
you came along restored my heart
and showed me how to live

and when the nights get cold
I know I'm not alone
and when you came into my life
I finally felt at home

Whatever placed me inside this body
must've cared about me
because it brought me to you
I didn't know I was alive
until I looked into your eyes
and I saw truth

I could never ask for more
I never would think to
you give me all I need
you never ask for anything
you've been right by my side
forever and a day
always...
Track Name: Hourglass
The hours
A steady flow
An ocean
Of letting go
A stillness
A quiet
A moment in the hourglass

I heard a scream that shattered glass
A million pieces - scattered patterns on the concrete
I saw a broken frame and a silhouette
Of a car crash that hasn't even happened yet

I feel alive in the fast lane
The road I ride already paved
And if I stop I'll lose control
I cut the brakes miles ago
I'll never be free
This tired town's behind
And I crave tomorrow's touch
These wheels just aren't fast enough

...and then I blinked
I was sideswiped
And for a moment it seemed
Like I was upright

And I let out a scream that cut through the night
A million dream - scattered patterns on the concrete
And I was a broken frame and my silhouette
Covered the earth like a safety net

And I was free
I was falling
Into this moment
And I was free
I was falling faster, ever faster
My body bending over backwards
And I was free, I was free
I closed my eyes

...and then I blinked
(he flew so far)
I was sideswiped
(suspending)
And for a moment it seemed
(space and time)
Like I was upright.
