Track Name: Home
Visions of white, texture of heart
Makeshift light is difficult to part
Cold gray sky, bittersweet smile
Opened eyes are blurred for a while

Dust in my eyes
Stone statue cries
As your broken heart
Tears mine apart

Dark black night, suddenly warm
The origin of lines beginning to form
Feverish chill, little unknown
This room is filled with the scent of home

Dust in my eyes
Stone statue cries
As your broken heart
Tears mine apart

Candlelit room, the truth begins to show
Sweet perfume, spirits all aglow
Never alone, feel the sweet love
Finally shown the ways of the above

Dust in my eyes
Stone statue cries
As your broken heart
Tears mine apart
Track Name: A Stain on The Tate
Morbid curiosity
Shakes me from tranquility
Turns my head that I might see the wealthy revolutionary
Baggard absent minded lies
Behind his glasses, glassy eyes
High enough to make his prize
Art inside the trash can hides
Fat with dripping paint, the brush
Meets the canvas in a rush
Guided by misguided lush
Paint spills like a silent crush
Hallelujah, art is made
Jagger's called and bills are paid
Pollack in the shade
While art with feeling is forbade

What an alluring bait to be a canvas so misused
What an unfortunate fate to be a soup can so abused
Track Name: Try
Here was the entrance, there was the door
Listening is silence like waves on the shore
Death is the mirror in the back of your mind
Life will deliver before the end unwinds

And you'll try, and you'll try
To make it clear as air that your affairs will have no end
An you'll try
Try as you may, but trying is all that you'll do

The sand's now shifting to cover your bones
The mirage now broken, reality takes hold
The sky in the summer brings your thoughts home
The sky in the winter just makes you feel old

And you'll try, and you'll try
To make it clear as air that your affairs will have no end
An you'll try
Try as you may, but trying is all that you'll do

Hold back your tongue the changes you wish to bear
After all change is slow and days far too short
The chains that oppress you can make you realize yourself
Not much to come of them if you don't leave your chair

And you'll try, and you'll try
To make it clear as air that your affairs will have no end
An you'll try
Try as you may, but trying is all that you'll do
