Track Name: Everglades
Born to the everglades
And steeped in the fire
Track Name: Lonely Cities
Never the fated to meet
In the lonely city
Where the tired refuse to sleep
In a blue lit avalon
Take back this fortune from me
In the absence of cynics
We all walk into the sea
With crossed fingers

Out in the grey and the glass
The procession of sadness
Determined to never be last
In broken babylon
We are the rust in the streets
These rivers of burden
Are singing us all to sleep
In a blue lit avalon

These words will never light the way
A harvest that withers in shade
Serving the weak as their slaves
We sing of the kingdom we made
Track Name: Ten Paces
Keep the candles lit in their lines
Dig shallow pits in the earth and grip your relics
Keep the fires lit in their lines
Say a couple of words and
Hold back the quickening, hold back the hollow hand
Ten paces at the dawn

Keep the shelter shift until you’re home
Feel the fingers lift as the slow-down beckons
Keep the shelter drift until you’re home
A destroyer of worlds and
The son of a no one, the black in the poisoned well
Ten paces at the dawn

And I’ve been out, searching for
The buzz that feeds, a thirst for more
And I’ve found a place, to hide you away
And leave you to the wolves
Track Name: Keep Watch
Keep watch, I’m watching
The tide stops
When you swim in the river

Keep watch, listen
The pin drops
For the silence in the mind

I am the coast
Watched from the sea
A place for you to breathe

Keep watch, watching
It's not enough
To swim in the river

Keep watch, lifted
It's not enough
To look into the sky

I am the coast
Watched from the sea
A place for you to breathe

Keep watch, I’m waiting
The time stops
And fades in the flicker

Keep watch, cautious
The just God
Is the ruin of the times

I am the coast
Watched from the sea
A place for you to breathe
Track Name: Fortress
Fortress, unbreachable
The mighty come to meet the cull
Fortress, unmerciful
Onwards and out into the sun

Fortress, we’ll be the last
To bring the doom within the craft
Fortress, head of the cask
The weight that tips the crooked mask

We set fuel to the fire
Leave it out in the bloom
Ash fell thick onto the hills

Fortress, the words in the wind
That sow the seed so it begins
Fortress, never to fall
It blisters and sparks into a sun
Track Name: Dust In The Glare
Lights hung over the hill
Before the night was done
Leave it or drink your fill
You know what's waiting
Under the hanging sun
The click in the clockwork gun

Set down on the inner isle
The foot on the ground that falls
The cackle in the silent call
The shudder in the baying trees
Too easy to gather close
We keep company with our ghosts

This time
Leave it in the autumn lull
This time
Leave it in the darkened halls
This time
Leave it in the falling rain
This time
Leave it in the whir of the city

And you need it
From the mouth of the mirror stare
And you need it
The dust in the glare
