Track Name: Closer
A father looks to the ground
The same silhouette and sounds
Pissed away
You wished away
All since the day
He sold you out

No past that sets us apart
And all former precedents gone

It's a shame if it's all in your mind

Dissenters look to the signs
They explain the extent of sin
They sense a way
To separate
The kids today
From the man you are

You'd hope to mention this one
As someone's devotional song

It's a shame if it's all in your mind

A son he looks to the ground
The same silhouettes and sounds
Pissed away
He wished away
All since the day
You sold him out

No past that sets us apart
All former testaments gone

It's a shame if it's all in your mind
Track Name: Eyes To The Light
Hand's on the suitcase
All out of time
Packed up the the suitcase
But nowhere to hide
Memories, like luxuries, fade

He stands at the staircase
Her eyes to the light
Still like a photo
No thought of a fight
Better to feel anything but misery

Crimes of the heart are to blame or deny
Nothing will change that he pushed from behind
She's passed on and yet he's feeling dead
"To hell" she had said

"Look at my hands, see my eyes. Look to the grave that holds this
fire. I'm counting the days till I meet you again"

She says "I'm betrayed and I'm no liar... I'm betrayed and I'm no
liar. All told with this death and the price that's placed on your
head. You'll find that I'm in the wind falling to give you up... I'm
betrayed and I'm no liar... I'm betrayed and I'm no liar..."
