Track Name: Wait for You
I try to follow down
The rivers to the seas
And chase the tiny sounds
Of feathers in the trees

But always on my mind
Is you that I adore
Is you that I must find
Is you I'm longing for

Follow me, dear
I'll wait for you here
And under this sky
I'll kiss you goodbye

Changing weather
Dark clouds gather

And in the clouds are rain and thunder
Bridges break and burst asunder
Trees fall down and flowers wither
Darling, can't you please come hither?

I never feel at ease
I'm always on the run
I wish I'd find some peace
And finally be done

But always on my mind
Is you that I adore
Is you that I must find
Is you I'm longing for

Follow me, dear
I'll wait for you here
And under this sky
I'll kiss you goodbye

Changing weather
Dark clouds gather

And in the clouds are rain and thunder
Bridges break and burst asunder
Trees fall down and flowers wither
Darling, can't you please come hither?
Track Name: Burya
I'm breathing haze
Struggling to find
That dream-like place
The calm inside my mind
So I can be at ease
And set my thoughts aside

To not see
In the eye
Only for a while
Before
A storm breaks loose
Inside

Trust in me
I'll show you how to reach the place and make you feel the
Ecstasy
Of emptiness inside

It's all so real
I'll make you feel awake and be aware of what you
Really feel
When you give up the fight

To not see
In the eye
Only for a while
Before
A storm breaks loose
Inside
Track Name: Searching for the Surface
My sorry life
Doesn't mean a thing
Doesn't need remembering

A little time
Twenty thousand days
In this forsaken place

I'm reaching for the sky
For something that ain't worthless
I know I have to try
I'm searching for the surface

What I do
Who I choose to be
Make me think I'm free

In the end
All that will remain
Is the joy or pain

I'm reaching for the sky
For something that ain't worthless
I know I have to try
I'm searching for the surface

Searching for the surface now
Track Name: Erodica
Nothing binds me to the living
There's nothing I have left to do
I've done my fair share of forgiving
I bit off more than I could chew

My body cannot stay
The rain falls every day
Eroding me and making me free
I slowly wash away

My soul ascending to the heavens
My body sinks into the earth
The understanding slowly beckons
To leave behind what's not of worth

My body cannot stay
The rain falls every day
Eroding me and making me free
I slowly wash away
Track Name: Strangelands
I finally found the sky I'm looking for
But all I see is darkness, nothing more
Well I know every step brought me here
But I don't feel my solution is drawing near

Waiting for something, a cry from the deep
Well I can see the Strangelands of sleep

Take me from this surface now
Track Name: Tonight We All Will Fall
Tonight we all will fall
The plane is coming down
Instead of meeting earth
It went right through the ground

Tonight we all will fall
The rain is coming down
And maybe we'll reach God
Or maybe we will drown
Track Name: Samsaria
I was just a little boy
And at night I dreamed of stars falling across the endless sky
I could see the thousands of flickering lights and imagine the hand that set them upon the black canvas that is our universe

To me, it felt like a warm place
It was only later that I found out it's always cold in space

When I think back to summers long ago
I always see birds flying and sunbeams raining from the trees
What one tends to forget are the showers
And the days that it was too hot to move
And the day that grandmother died

And the fact that those things are just as much a part of summer
As the sunlight, or the month of July
