Track Name: This is Mine
I am the darkness that hides in the light
I am the wrong in all that is right
I excel in painting hatred with shades of love
A bestial mural; a portrait of blood

Your nothing – your all
All these things you thought were you…
They’re mine
I’ll feed you scraps of freedom
And at the bowl you’ll beg for more

You’ve given so much life to all this that is mine

I am the sadness that brings a smile
I am the fool embraced by guile
I aspire to drag below what lay above (on high)
The blade clipping your wings as your standing to fly

Your nothing – your all
All these things you thought were you…
They’re mine
I’ll feed you scraps of freedom
And at the bowl you’ll beg for more
Track Name: A Darker Man
A breath to take but no lungs to spare
I sit and stare but I no longer care

A shadow’s image reflecting light
What do I believe? Do I believe what I believe?
That these two enemies just can’t be?
Let not a ray touch this darker man in me

A man’s that’s frail, a man who’s strong
A mosaic man of song
One of purpose, a freak of sin
A house of cards victim to the wind

A shadow’s image reflecting light
What do I believe? Do I believe what I believe?
That these two enemies just can’t be?
Let not a ray touch this darker man in me
Track Name: Ghost Ocean
No silver lining within these clouds
Blackness consumes their rays
Can we weather this storm that has beaten our weathered bows
Promising gales for days and for days

So many moons we’ve searched for
The answers to proves, a trove lore
The bounty was high, it towered to the sky
It was the Weight of Poseidon
A barnacled lie

Into the depths we find our home
Refracted faces that mock our own
On the Ghost Ocean floor

Thunderous crack! The mast met the deck
Twenty men laid to rest upon this buoyant wreck
My eyes can not pierce this mist at my face
Swimming through iron and salt, is this the end that I taste?

Into the depths we find our home
Refracted faces that mock our own
On the Ghost Ocean floor

Beneath the surface I see it all
The serpents’ control made clear
The crushing pressure forcing cries from my lungs
Warnings trapped in waves for no one to hear

My screams across the combers
Now whispers atop the sea
Begging the sea-faring passers by
To find an example in me
Yet, into the depths they find their home
My refracted eyes are now their own
On this Ghost Ocean floor
