Track Name: Wine Dark/Frost (Vino Nocte)
Dark at noon
The air was like glass
And I was walking right beside you
There's nothing beneath us
But the white grass
Frost at your toes and your fingers are cold

I'm feeling wine dark

Over and Done
Shoulder to Shoulder
Lying down

I am he
I am your blood
You're all that I need

Hold your soul in the old, in this gold
I've been found in this way
But they won't let me stay
No, no, no, situate
And erase how I've been, this is only a new friend
I've been found, I've been sold
Is it great? So you know.
And this sound that you hear
Is my drum in your ear
And you forgot my name
But the words came the same
You are here in my land
And we won't meet again
cause your not in my way
You are not here to stay
Let it be Man of War
This is not how you were
Track Name: Silent & Alone (Quiete et Solus)
I've got a basement in Chicago
With plenty of space for all our friends, if we want
You can ballerina down the stairs, I don't care
I just want you to feel at home

If you thought that I was being quiet
I was trying to be alone
And I don't mean to offend you, darling
But I warned you, I'm the worst at talking
I can't see the difference between
A skyline and mountains of evergreens
I can't tell the difference between
A mouse in the attic and a creak from the house

Come your hair up, cut it off
Limited light shines upon you
Underneath your feathery pillows
And all of your caramel sheets
You are the poster child
Prepped blonde hair, Volcano Smile
You are, You are, You are, You are

If you thought that I was being quiet
I was trying to be alone
And I don't mean to offend you, Darling
But I warned you, I'm the worst at talking
I can't see the difference between
A skyline and mountains of evergreens
I can't tell the difference between
A mouse in the attic and a creak from the house

If you thought that I was being quiet
I was trying to be alone
And I don't mean to offend you, Darling
But this isn't how it goes
Track Name: Meménto Nostri (Remember Us)
Curled up and waiting
Oh God, Where are You now?
Staying up late for saying,
"I am the one who saw you come down"

But instead I saw them rise
Those assumed forgotten
Beneath us, Always watching
He has has not forgot them
He has not forgot them

Lovely, sing through the night
Abraham's children unbroken
Together as they rise
Singing, "truth He hath spoken"
Singing, "truth He hath spoken"

He has not forgotten
He has not forgot them
He has remembered me
He has remembered me
Track Name: Sleepless Night, Godless Mind (Sine Somnus Nocte, Sine Deus Menti)
I'm tired of confusion
I'm tired of not knowing
I'm tired of not growing
And living in the dark

It's hard to talk when you lack understanding
You were never so demanding
You were never so commanding
And I'd like it if you'd stop

But you talk like there's no one else out there
And I just can't live with that

I'm tired of decisions
All of these revisions
Are tearing me apart

But then you talk like there's someone else out there
Like there's somebody else out there
Like there's somebody else out there
