Track Name: Death By Imagination (Acoustic)
Write it down
Before your memory fails you
Surprised to find
That your pen’s been used to impale you
Death by imagination is not hard
In this cruel, cruel world
The mind is free
To live separately

Oh, how far we’ll go
How far we’ll go
How far we’ll go

Try to go home
But soon your feet grow weary
When it’s love you hold
You know you won’t see clearly
My arms are open
My arms are open wide
I’m looking to embrace
All that’s passed me by

Oh, how far we’ll go
How far we’ll go
How far we’ll go

When the second-hand moves slowly
And you wonder why it is you’re lonely
When the ink spills on your pages
When you feel like you’ve been stuck for ages
When you feel like you’ve been stuck for ages

It’s time to come down
It’s time to come down
It’s time to come down
It’s time to come down
Track Name: You Will Be Found (Acoustic)
In between your outstretched arms I find refuge
A shelter that is safe from harm
Hold on tight I’ll do no wrong
In time you’ll know
In the midst of heavy breathing
Your eyes fail you
A darkness creeps within your being
You’re far too young to feel this feeling
Don’t hide away

You’re taken far from home
Your innocence is gone

Oh darling, you will be found
Before the sun goes down
Oh darling, no matter where you roam
You’ll be brought home
I think I’m going crazy, I think I’ve lost my mind
Still I know
Darling, you will be found
You will be found

It may feel like you are dying
You may wish it to be true
Darling no matter where you roam
I will come find you
I will come find you

Oh darling, you will be found
Before the sun goes down
Oh darling, no matter where you roam
You’ll be brought home
I think I’m going crazy, I think I’ve lost my mind
Still I know
Darling, you will be found
You will be found

Oh darling, you will be found, you will be found
Track Name: Deep Blue (Acoustic)
I held you tight, as if it would not last
The night, with no light; it wouldn’t seem to pass
My words, empty like my promises
I cursed you

I was trying to let you know, that I could never let you go
I just tried to hold you close, to feel your heart beat in my throat
Now it seems I’ve lost control, but from what I do not know
You go down, down, down, down, down
To the deep blue

I hoped that you would float, up to the surface
But you sunk like a stone, down through the ocean
Just like a knife, cutting through my soul
I lost my grip, and with it my control

I was trying to let you know, that I could never let you go
I just tried to hold you close, to feel your heart beat in my throat
Now it seems I’ve lost control, but from what I do not know
You go down, down, down, down, down
You go down, down, down, down, down

Go grab yourself a cigarette
And smoke it until that ash burns red

It comes back to you – we’ve gone full circle
And yes it’s true, I still yearn for you
And my hands are stained from the blood of this slaughter
And you are gone in the depths of the water

I was trying to let you know, that I could never let you go
I just tried to hold you close, to feel your heart beat in my throat
Now it seems I’ve lost control, but from what I do not know
You go down, down, down, down, down
To the deep blue
To the deep blue
