Track Name: Incomplete
Incomplete

The understanding
The patience in control when I'm playing my role

The truth before me
The freely held beliefs in too tight a hold

The way it comes down
Feel the fear that hope brings me

When the need is incomplete
When the fear imprisons me
When that need is incomplete
What you need and want to be

The understanding
Frustration taking hold
What do I know?

I remember
My favorite little place I used to go

What's in my mind
In my mind when it's empty

When the need is incomplete
When the fear imprisons me
When that need is incomplete
What you need and want to be

The understanding
Crawling out of that which I have known
The truth before me
And pride in that which I don't know
Consolation
Freely held beliefs in too tigh a hold
I'm like a deer in the headlights
Trapped by the last light I'll ever know

Track Name: Vignette
Vignette

Run down the stairs
To see what happened
But nothing happened

She waits until
Her mind's empty
But it's never empty

I wait and now
Will it happen?
Or did it happen?

Track Name: Deep End
Deep End

To stand alone
Your lonely goal
Is wishful thinking
To walk behind, and to walk too slowly
We all know that this is now
You're only one
You're only someone
One breath and that picture's gone.

Mountain to climb
Your hope can build up
An obligation
You want only to
Walk beside her
But always you walk behind
To walk behind
To walk too slowly
One breath and that picture's gone.

To walk beside
Is simple enough
When that chance is gone
The light still shines
And the hills still roll
Just fine without me
You're only one
You're only someone
One breath and that picture's gone.

Track Name: Concrete
Concrete

Grey concrete under my feet
When you're staring down and standing out in it
As a dirty rain washes the windowpanes
Look inside at the unfamiliar faces
Stare back silently

Misplaced and we're here to stay
Never see the difference
Never see another way
When you live like a tenant on borrowed time
Live between the painted yellow lines
On the sidewalk
Step silently

Misplaced, it's sad to say
Never see the difference
Never see another way
When you see only the brick and stones and drains
And the painted yellow lines on the sidewalk
Speak to me
