Track Name: Erewhon
I can feel it coming
It will light the doorway there
Incentively running
If I believe, it will be clear

This dream controls me
Yet I don't let it come true
Lucidly absent
I slave my mind to you

She breathes her pure love
Like the coming of a spring
Her vision soothes me
These gifts, just time will bring

Another valley
Another day to climb
One day I'll reach there
And then the dream subsides


I saw the skyline melt into the haze
Another night come to take me away
I'll leave the real world to dream of that place
They all keep saying I'll reach there someday


She showed the way then disappeared
Some days I wonder if she was real
Somewhere in time I'll find her
But not if I stay here

The light I've seen here
Is so bright it burns
I can't turn back now
Come with me to the end of the line


I'll live the dream
My own creation
I'll find the place
And then I'll be home
Track Name: Heartless Repeat
Tell me please
How to keep
Your heart from tearing to
A thousand pieces
Taking you to sleep

I wore your clothes last night
While you talked to me
It seemed like we could so easily be

Then you [redacted]
What you thought of me
And I lost my head completely

Our bear had lost its teeth
And I was mute
But still you stood there stubbornly

Then I [redacted]
Could I please just leave?
And if looks could kill, I'd be free

Tell me I'm wrong but I thought you were right up my street
You were my other sister so long it took me months to find my cold feet

Tell me please how to keep you at arm's reach
Tell me please how to leave and still be happy

I thought you'd more to say
But you stopped hating me
I guess that was the point
Was it everything?

Could you just forgive?
Cause you've long forgot
How to let us live
It's not a lot

Tell me please how to be a memory


Tell me please how to be convincingly easy
