Track Name: Augustus
There's a fog light ahead that will fade from our view when these memories are dead. And it's taking these shapes so they don't fall into place, they're left falling from grace. When we come to an end of a new beginning, we press rewind and relive. When you write from the moon, I'll sing it back to you. I was right, there will always be a start, there is always a new start that is holding us here. We collide, make the most of light and dark. Counting every day and night that we're pushing under. Lost and found in a town that we call home. Memorising every road, making sure that we are home in a land that is foreign to our eyes, but we motivate ourselves that we will feel comfortable. Did you ask for a final chance? I'm falling from myself. We're stalling our hearts now. I never wanted this to end, it's too bad these days don't last forever. Too many reasons why I intend these final hours to piece together.
Track Name: Candletimes
Seven days of calling, no delay or waiting, while the hours catch each other out. And the ties are level while I try to let go. Holding on so I don't pull you down. Behind the curtain we remain uncertain whether crowds will turn their backs to us, or applaud. Soon we'll know what it's like to give up on our instincts and hide. We will turn off the light, let the darkness black out the white. Through our own consciousness we stay hopeful and bring out the best in our lives. There's a fire inside that is burning softly, like the times when candles lit our way through fading days. I'm holding on. I'm marching on.
