Track Name: The Enlightenment
This is not illusory, yet fleeting we see
the darkness that fades away, when they become we

Control is not elusive when fear is just a choice
I am not the only one that dreads an absent voice
come with me til I can just find the olive branch
all in time

Just stay where you will lie,
I'll be right there in time,
In time, I'll be with you

Sparrow flock trajectory, is guided by one
Careening from grace to stray, away from free,

Deafened by the silence is every maker's mark,
suppression by coercion pushed back into cement
grab your pick and hammer let's pry ourselves away
all in time

Just stay where you will lie
I'll be right there
In time, I'll be with you
Track Name: Atlas Carried
Poison and pills, radio
We've lived too long in our fear
Swallowed, covered, eaten whole
Take the first bus out of here

Burdens, buried, carry weight
The band plays its funeral march
Burdens, buried, carry weight
The bird sings its final song

What am I guilty of?
Where did I go wrong?
What am I guilty of?
Where did I go wrong?

I am sure there's more than this
Something they hold back from me
Illusions, thoughts I'd never be
The things I know I could have been

I'm sick of life as a dream
Something coming I've never seen
How much power do I have
when my amp is not plugged in?

What am I guilty of?
Where did I go wrong?
What am I guilty of?
Where did I go wrong?

What am I guilty of?
What am I guilty of?
What am I guilty of?
What am I guilty of?

...Atlas carries.
Track Name: Low Tide
"I'll come back a different man,"
So young and sure of himself
He doesn't notice his mistake
He doesn't know

Again
I know I'll see you again
A different man
Time and tide
Again

The ocean's a big place (the sea is so big)
So open, so afraid (so afraid, so afraid)
But every feeling is so fleeting
"I can make this go away"

So I watch you off
And I know that ship has sailed
Fading into the horizon
Until it's gone
