Track Name: Cover My Eyes
How long are you gonna stare at the moon, wishing your life away again?
I saw your face from across the room, a pain that invited me in
I figure by now we’ve got nothing to lose but I cannot sit back and let us meet our end
I saw the crash not a moment too soon, all along we’ve been on course but
I still love you
(We’ve been waiting so long that we can’t find our way again)
I still love you
(We’ve been waiting so long that we can’t find our way back home)

Cover my eyes, don’t let me see this unstoppable force that’s in front of me
Help me understand, coz God knows this loneliness makes me feel like another man

Constant background checks on your life, keep second-guessing your own resolve
Always feel like I’m in disguise, slipping through cracks of my own design
Now I feel like the end has begun, plastic soldiers keeping marching on
Don’t try to catch up with your life, it will always become you but

Cover my eyes, don’t let me see, keep blocking it out to feel alive
Cover my eyes, cover my eyes

Suddenly I’m way off course
But I still love you
(We’ve been waiting so long that we can’t find our way again)
I still love you
(We’ve been waiting so long that we can’t find our way back home)
Track Name: Snake Side
Coming forward with the keys to life
Rolling by and never taking stride
Feel the space around you spreading out and leaving room for growing old

Live each day as though you see the end
Wear your scars like a familiar friend
Feeling doubt within but hopefulness at living through another life

Going snake side will make all the ones you love
Fall by the wayside, and they’ll never make it
And only take you far away to start your life again

Coming forward with the keys to life
Rolling by and never taking stride
To lead you need to live by what you do not how you talk about it

Going snake side will make all the ones you love
Fall by the wayside, and while they’ll never make it
The ocean takes you far away to start your life again
Say goodbye to all your friends
Until we meet again someday

Find your own truth
Hold it close
Then run
Run away until we meet again someday
Track Name: Love Me Tonight
Hey, play that song
Light another fire and sing along
Hey, get it wrong (how did you know?)
Another rope of lies to hang me from

Lost in a lie
Just believe I’m somebody else and love me tonight
Track Name: Sand Mirrors
Lost and alone
Across the unknown
Lost in a golden sea

A broken caravan, eye of the kaleidoscope
A ghost-led carnival, real and beautiful
Trawl the soft sand, tumbling acrobats
Falling fast

Picking up puffs of dust
Flip and twist across the crest of the dunes
As their silhouettes dance with the moon
The ringmaster snaps the reins and sings
Washed in the desert wind

A broken caravan, eye of the kaleidoscope
To never see again, still beneath the fallen shade
The years are slowly washed away
Forever sleeping

Please don’t take this all away
Stay with me here, safe from the morning
To never see again, still beneath the fallen shade
The years are slowly washed away
Forever sleeping

Stay with me here
Safe from the morning
Stay with me…
