Track Name: Only Steps Away
My eyes traced sights one thousand times they'd seen
Foreign, more than they had ever been
Through halls and paths, I carried me away
From cold embraces, lives once lived, I saw the light of day

All here
Stay here

All light in this world has been withdrawn
I can't turn back, so I must carry on
Roots dig deep and slowly consume all
This hopeless place has slowed me to a crawl

All here
Stay here

All here

Stay here
Track Name: Orison (Acoustic)
Until your voice is heard, I will not speak another word
I want back what you destroyed
In your lungs is truth in hiding?
Is your heart of love devoid?

In a dream, I understood your words and everything was clear
I had less to lose and nothing left to fear
But I awoke to learn there's no hope here to find
Hard as I try to catch you, I'm still miles behind

No help rendered
No hope for change

You failed me when you stayed the same
