Track Name: Worlds Apart
Clothes strewn across the lawn
She sat naked on the dock
She told me that she was waiting for something
And I would have to keep her company

She says she's going to leave me now
But I know she left me long ago

The articles I never published
They lay stacked upon my desk
She told me the words don't make the man
And that the fame meant even less

She says she's going to leave me now
But I know she left me long ago

I'm not sure that I believed her
But she was so intent in what she said
That a thousand letters couldn't paint this moment
No matter what they said (read)

She says she's going to leave me now
But I know she left me long ago

But as I always do, I tried
To capture the moment in verse
Track Name: Freia
Well it just so happens that I have all of the answers
Right here in the palms of my hands
And I can do as I choose with them
I can clap them away, or bury them deep in the sand

Well it just so happens I found you here in the dirt
Molded you from clay
Underestimated your power
To steal my emotions away

You were king of the heap
You were in way too deep
You were kicking up a fuss to wake us out of our sleep
And tell all us fucks
To eat your bloody dust
You were weak

Well it just so happens I found us a secret to be proud of
It's a word I like the meaning,
I like the power,
I like the sound of
And it's teasing me
Everyday I want to use and abuse it
It conjures up beauty and I know that you are amused by it

Cuz you were king of the heap
You were in way too deep
You were kicking up a fuss to wake us out of our sleep
And tell all us fucks
To eat your bloody dust
You were weak
Track Name: Hindsights & Shortfalls
She's down and deep caught kissing in a dream
Where nothing isn't never not what it doesn't seem
She's being pulled down by the undertow
Of a life composed, she floats upstream

And when the dreaming stops, she don't wanna let go
Cuz the real her is someone she don't wanna know
And the real world already sold her out
All she has left is the afterglow

And she don't think this is the end-all and be-all
The music is better in her mind
She can't see through her hindsights & shortfalls
To see what it is that she left behind

She's a visionary and the world is her play
But the beautiful dreams don't make the pain go away
And when she awakes, the drugs don't fill the void
Her hindsights & shortfalls bring her back to today

Yeah her hindsights & shortfalls bring her back to today
Her shortfalls remain, they don't ever go away
Her dreams are too short and they don't fill the void
She reaches out for them anyway

Yet she don't think this is the end-all and be-all
The music is better in her mind
She can't see through her hindsights & shortfalls
To see what it is that she left behind
Track Name: Winter
Do this

When will I end this blissful life?
What will I most miss when I jack-knife?
In my winter
Hinterland beyond
Sunny summer, always latecomer

Allow me this one grace
I'm not yet ready to lose face
Allow me this one grace
I'm not yet ready to lose face

Is it high time I met my maker?
I may be a faker in the midst of the real thing
Am I a giver or a taker?
(faker)
Nothing so disappointing
Nothing made you join me
Join me

Allow me this one grace
I'm not yet ready to lose face
In the arms of all my foes
Are all the mistakes I ever made

Who knows what'll happen in my winter?
In my winter?
Who knows what'll happen in my winter?
In my winter?

Allow me this one grace
I'm not yet ready to lose face
In the arms of all my foes
Are all the mistakes I ever made
Track Name: The Rapture
In my wildest fantasies
You never changed your plans for me
And now the moment's come and gone
Finally, my memory's strong

It was everything I expected of you
And nothing I could have foreseen
Why do these moments come back?
Why do they come back to the same theme?

Feeling left out in the cold
It was something I never could have told you
The moment I wanted to re-capture
But you're still waiting for the rapture

I could have met you halfway
You still wouldn't have changed
If you had, I wouldn't have stayed
I won't be the one to blame

Feeling left out in the cold
It was something I never could have told you
The moment I wanted to re-capture
But you're still waiting for the rapture

I still recall the lines on your face
I all these memories I can still taste
As you lay naked in my arms
I traced the outline of your back, doll

Feeling left out in the cold
It was something I never could have told you
The moment I wanted to re-capture
But you're still waiting for the rapture
Track Name: The Price
If you saw it coming
From a mile away
Would you say you didn't, just for old time's sake?
If it makes you angry, would you name any names?
Would you falter if you knew what's at stake?

He didn't make you who you were
Maybe you made me who I am

And you say it's raining
But only in your backyard
And everything's fine
You just took it too far
When I was with you
Before you gone away
Before you changed
Your simple ways

The prize was worth more than what you paid
Tell me it mattered anyway

And all my idioms
Were lost on you
And all your smiles
Were when I turned my shoulder
And all our crying
Done behind closed doors
Not together
Never holding one another


He didn't make you who you were
But maybe you made me who I am

That's the price you pay
I always paid
It's the price you pay
We'll always pay
It's the price you pay
We'll always pay
It's the price you pay
It's the price price
Price price you pay

He didn't make you who you were
Maybe you made me who I am
Track Name: Reprise
That's the price you pay
I always paid
It's the price you pay
We'll always pay
It's the price you pay
We'll always pay
It's the price you pay
It's the price price
Price price you pay

He didn't make you who you were
Maybe you made me who I am
