Track Name: Brittle Star
Far across the endless sky
Is a soul with whom my diffidence lies
Pining a lost sense of reality
The brittle star is soothing me

You, you say you want to be free
Free from the yearning inside
To keep it alive I'll treasure this tragedy
So collapse and crumble
This is not your destruction
This is your birth

Walking through this long valley
I reach out to the sun
It burns my fingertips
Down to my palms so rough
You hold out an amethyst
And I feel the overwhelming love

You, you say you want to be free
Free from the yearning inside
To keep it alive I'll treasure this tragedy
So collapse and crumble
This is not your destruction
This is your birth

Show me something real
Something I can feel

You, you say you want to be free
Free from the yearning inside
To keep it alive I'll treasure this tragedy
So collapse and crumble
This is not your destruction
This is your birth
Track Name: Aether's Eyes
Age defies the nurtured triggers
System self esteem
Scan your head and make believe
The demons that you see

Stare into the night sky
Vexation from Aether’s eyes

My throat and head ache
Ignore the callousness before you
Or open up your heart
And realize that I adore you

These fragile thoughts I hold
In my hands
Like glass are crumbling into the sand

Stare into the night sky
Vexation from Aether’s eyes

My throat and head ache
Ignore the callousness before you
Or open up your heart
And realize that I adore you

Even though I’m such a small star constellation
Thank you for finding me
Track Name: Sillage
I try not to let my trinkets
Get the best of me
It's like the times that I once had
Are slipping away
I need a memory
One that ends up happily
Petrified I spiral back again

Your scent still in this room
And I can smell your perfume

Take a deep breath and hold it in
Exhale into the air
Please don't panic
You're almost there
The lock is open
Concentrate unseal

And all I do is lie here and I feel numb
Because by the time I sing this song
I know you'll be gone

Oh no please don't go
Track Name: Storm's End
Carving paths through the air
Worms that burrow though the sky
Clouds curve around my bones
Form my body form my skin

And the rays of light, they no longer shine

Atmosphere runs its fingers through my hair
A soft breeze turns to violence
Pull hundreds of threads that finely line the air
Tear down the heavens, expose what isn't there

Something in the mist is pricking me
With needles that I cannot see
There's an instance of insanity
Bound together by nothing but gravity
As I reach for the sun again
Sentimentality sinking in so deep
Oh I know
Describing every moral mellow fit
That my body creates
And fear itself is concerned with the uncertainty
The universe will crush you

And the rays of light, they no longer shine

Atmosphere runs its fingers through my hair
A soft breeze turns to violence
Pull hundreds of threads that finely line the air
Tear down the heavens, expose what isn't there

Minor steps and gentle figure form behind the clouds
Wisdom take a hold of me and wake my mind somehow
My spine in segments and these hands are cut and scarred
I can feel this mourning hear

Rain

Oh my dear friend I ask of you this question
Do you need solitude to clear your mind?
