Track Name: I'm Gone
I kept walking away
When you meant for me to stay.
I meant to follow but I strayed
I’m gone
I’m gone

I would picture the day
Those first words I heard you say
But all good memories do decay
And are gone
I’m gone

I wake alone now on the lows
Funny how plans can decompose
You were the family that I chose
And you’re gone
You’re gone
I’m gone
I’m gone

One day, we might just get to talk awhile and laugh for a time
One day, we might just get to be alright, I’m not alright
I feel it’s right, but nothing is right
I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m gone
Track Name: In This City
Stop the traffic, Put the sirens to sleep
Tell me I am not just one of the sheep lying in wait
Tell me any lie to heal my pride

In this city, In this city, you burn
Your ambition’s bitter taste as it turns to ash in your mouth
Hold me close and never let me go

In this city of light, I have wandered for days
I will stay up forever and cast all dreams away
In this city of lies, I have nothing to say
In this bustle and buzzing, I scream in vain

I’ll go crazy and lose myself to the gloom, if
No one hears me barking up at the moon, broken and proud
In these streets in plain sight I will hide

In this city of light, I have wandered for days
I will stay up forever and cast all dreams away
In this city of lies, I have nothing to say
Nothing I’ve done has mattered, so let come what may
Track Name: One More Year
One more year of broken promise, shattered dreams that feed the darkness
One more year of wasting time and waiting for my will to die
One more year of wishing true the lies that brought me here to you
One more year of frailty that won’t lead me to an end

One more year, One more year
One more year, One more year

One more year of sacrifice or so they say for Jesus Christ
One more year on bended knee, the testing of my loyalties
One more year of alcohol to build me up and break my falls
One more year of waiting by the phone for you to call

One more year, One more year
One more year, One more year
One more year, One more year
One more year, One more year

One more year of growing older, pacifying, rolling over
One more year of hoping I can last for just one more

One more year, One more year
One more year, One more year
One more year, One more year
One more year, One more year
Track Name: Of Sandboxes and Other Things
You had a tree in the backyard felled
When we were kids, its branches proudly held
A swing set in a sandbox made
By you Father with your skills of trade

In that sandbox I used to play
With my sisters ere we came of age
Building castles and then kicking them away
And now nothing of that time remains

Oh the memory of a world contained
In the confines of a yard you’d made
You built a castle and you kicked it away
Built up a kingdom just to let it fade

And the neighbours would all come to see
As we chased away the cat with glee
Swinging back and forth till wisdom came
Dooming interest in a sandbox to fade

Oh the memory of a world contained
In the confines of a yard you’d made
You built a castle and you kicked it away
Built up a kingdom just to let it fade

You had a tree in the backyard felled
And as it broke our sandbox quietly held
Its ruin in a tomb you’d made
And with it memories of much simpler days
