Track Name: We Are Momentum
Gather round, gather round
Gents and ladies far,
The unruly, truly quite bizzare
We're the heat, we're the guns
Shootin' for the stars
Fire Rogues, yeah you're free
Yeah, it's who you are

We've been marked, we've been marked
As a grinding threat
To the rustic gears of establishment
We are where the bandits
And romantics met
At the dance of a
Pained and a proud movement

You were born, you were born
Of the sunlight's dust
With your hands on the wheel
And a steady trust
Shining soul, in the shade
Don't you give to rust
You're a lighthouse of love
In the mist of lust

I know it hurts, hurts, hurts
I know the pain, pain, pain
You're so alone - lone - lone
So far away - way - way

And they rush, rush, rush,
We are momentum, momentum
And they chase, chase, chase
We are momentum, momentum
And they rush, rush, rush,
We are momentum, momentum
And they chase, chase, chase
We are momentum, momentum
Track Name: I Am
Kicked to the frost
At any cost
"You're but a flaw, but a flaw",
Boiled with blood pent
My plea fought
For life, for naught
"You are terrible, terrible"
So much ~ energy spent

You cu-cu-cut in
You cu-cu-cut in
You cu-cu-cut in
Just to cut me down to you...

But you - won't turn me
Or break me in
You reach for bones
But I am but wind

Lang ~ uage corrodes
Acid unloads
From the venom here, venom here
On your searing spree
But baring fear
When the ~ dust had cleared
What did it do for you, do for you
When it helped me to breathe

You cu-cu-cut in
You cu-cu-cut in
You cu-cu-cut in
Just to cut me down to you...

But you - won't turn me
Or break me in
You reach for bones
But I am but wind
I am my will
From push to shove
You might be loud
But I am my love

There's no need for frights, it's a show of lights
Fire rogues, yeah you're free, yeah you're quite the sight
In a love story, where beauty is might
Hard times have you now, but you'll be alright
Track Name: Cumulonimbus
It's risky, dark and bleak,
Miles long, her feet
Move in uncertain time

Accusations sound at sight
Does she think they're right
She's wanted for love crimes

Are you a tender one - tender one, rebel
A fighter with a nature of gold
There's no need to be - need to be, subtle
When your heart has been so bold

You're a bottle of lightning and it's
So very frightening to the
Titans of dimness
Let your energy swim through deep from
The storm within you, little
Cumulonimbus

The howling crowd's alive
Sing while you arrive
Here's your test
Little one

Your rug's been swept beneath
Let me be your sheath
I'll hold your heart
While we run

You are a renegade - renegade, baby
That proofreaders can't handle so well
I'd prefer the Earth to be - Earth to be, shaking
Then stay trapped inside that hell

You're a bottle of lightning and it's
So very frightening to the
Titans of dimness
Let your energy swim through deep from
The storm within you, little
Cumulonimbus

You're goin' - goin' goin' - goin' gone
Keep movin' - movin' - movin' movin' on
This isn't - isn't - isn't what they want
But are you gonna - gonna - gonna let them haunt
Track Name: Cirrus Skaters
In time the smoke will leave here
But I'm not just gonna breathe here
I'd rather sweep a breeze under those old ashes
I know the way, let's head there
Let your heartache down with your hair
Movin' through the lights and heights of the compass caches

La la, look out
Down below, oh
Heaven knows where
We will go, oh
I get homesick, so very quick
For vistas new
We are the pirates
And loving traitors
On the road of
Cirrus skaters
Ever alive, takin' a dive
For vistas new

Every day inside the debris
Really makes you want to sightsee
I'd like to have your hand, this could get quite bumpy
Oh, a different air waits for us
May the guiding wind adorn us
I tend to throttle out, hope you're not too jumpy

I'm gonna break the glass
Of every old impasse
Yeah, the night's sublime
What's a better time
To go than now

(CHORUS)

And I'll hold onto you as long as you hold onto me
I've got a lot in my view but no one else that I can see
Tonight we are aloft, we are the stars hangin' up free
Yeah, I'll hold onto you as long as you hold onto me

(CHORUS)

Oh I will always chase
The way my heart will race
And if you're feelin' doubt
Let's ride it out
Just come along
Track Name: Gryphon Stars
Shadows,
Shaped by gryphon stars
Flying out so far
Flying out so far
Spirits,
Scared of what could be
Come and stay with me
Come and stay with me

Trials and
Tribulations of
All the routes above
All the routes above
Sap my strength
The very way they give
The only way to live
The only way to live

Lend me the sight giants behold
To break apart old cautions retold
You can plunge in anxiety so grim
Or wield your wings for your own rhythm

Some seem
To have a peace of mind
I could never find
I could never find
Freed ropes
Come at a heavy cost
When the ground is lost
When the ground is lost

Eyes wide
On the mammoth show
Like the heaven's snow
Like the heaven's snow
An optimist
Living for her best
She won't end with less
She won't end with less

Lend me the sight giants behold
To break apart old cautions retold
You can plunge in anxiety so grim
Or wield your wings for your own rhythm

I feel each step so slow, oh
I've got vertigo go go go
I feel each step so slow, oh
I've got vertigo go go go
Follow the trails in the air
Follow the trails in the air
Follow the trails in the air
Follow the trails in the air

So won't you lend me the sight giants behold
To break apart old cautions retold
You can plunge in anxiety so grim
Or wield your wings for your own rhythm

Shadows,
Shaped by gryphon stars
Flying out so far
Flying out so far
Follow me
From atop the trees
Reaching out so free
Reaching out so free
Track Name: I Can Tell (Feat. Hailey Butler)
Through the old town square of
Dogma's yearly tradition
On a whim I took a
Dive far in expedition

I followed a glimmer on a winding trail
Deep through beauty, treachery, and howling hail
When she helped me back up to my bruised feet
Her grin put me at ease

You said,
"I'm not from around all these trees up here
But you sing with the sounds of the seas sincere
And I can tell by your eyes, big and blue
The great azure, lets your
Soul sail right on through"

With not a thing chaining me
Down but the deadend and the bland
In a flash, I'll drag up
The anchor, my sights on a new land

My first love, she is the breathin' briny sea
Most cannot comprehend its heart beating in me
But if you chase the same chill in your weathered bones
Maybe I'm not alone

You said now
"I'm not from around all these trees up here
But you sing with the sounds of the seas sincere
And I can tell by your eyes, big and blue
The great azure, lets your
Soul sail right on through"

There's magic in disguise
Hiding in those eyes

I try and I try
Falling anyway

Oh you're a window
Straight to the deep, yo ho
Oh you're a window
Straight to the deep, yo ho
Oh you're a window
Straight to the deep, yo ho
Oh you're a window
Straight to the deep, yo ho

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Princess Red Rum
Oh I'm sure you've heard all the stories
Triumph, scandal, all her name lends
The world chases down her glories
The legends and the red dead ends

She has the yell of a young punk
Wisdom and a smile with a saber
All the salty wit of an old drunk
If she'd outpace you, it's a favor

She's an outlaw
Born braver
Your deep spell
Your savior
The highroller,
Princess Red Rum...
But in your eyes
She's freedom

Bound down to 'er life on the free way
She's bad, she's fast, she's got you pinned
Yeah your leap won't lend you much leeway
When you're tryin' to escape a whirlwind

From her pistol
Right to your bliss
You better not blink
As if you could miss

She's an outlaw
Born braver
Your deep spell
Your savior
The highroller,
Princess Red Rum...
But in your eyes
She's freedom

You can survive on caution and foresight
But numbness is livin' on a loss
And her gust is givin' you your flight
'Cause there's comfort within her chaos

There's a snowball
Deep in hell
That says this
Will end well
So make her
Part of your story
At least she's dangerous...
Better than boring

She's an outlaw
Born braver
Your deep spell
Your savior
The highroller,
Princess Red Rum...
But in your eyes
She's freedom

Princess Red Rum
Yeah she's freedom
Track Name: A Beautiful Misfit
Poets long for words like your dreams
And your silhouette sings profanity
Oh, I believe that's just what this world needs
So won't you run, run, run, run, run, run with me
Track Name: Avra's Song
Drifting on a cloud blanket,
Stands Avra, the guardian of fire
Giving away all her light
Gathered from much, much higher

Misunderstood by King Night
And adoring the sunbeams falling
She was banished from her sleep
For pursuing her calling

All my life I've heard
"It matters not what's outside"
But if you're odd within
Where all your blazes reside
No matter what you feel
If you're true, if you're scared
I believe
We are good
When we make
Good out there

Cursed, she was so miserable
"Your way is wrong", Night told her
Just to fight back, she brought light
Down to give Earth's dark a spur

Delivering soothing visions
She'd felt alone and distressed
But watching her glow bloom below
Granted Avra's heart some rest

(CHORUS)

Harness it, make your mark
Ring your light, through the dark

Years have passed
Beyond sleep
Frightening first
Such a sweep
But she thawed
Ice to life
With her gift
Oh so rife

Collectin' the flares that fall
Down from the tumbling sunbeams
When it gets dim she hides thems
Deep inside us - they're called "dreams"

(CHORUS x2)
Track Name: Flower
If I could have your attention
You'd hardly desire
The grip that can come
With a handful of fire
I know not of how far
Your torment has gone on
But I'm cravin' a bite and
Your tooth has grown long

And if I'm hearing you right
You think you're justice, you think you're the light

With the wrath of the red,
I'll be rage on all fours
If you're giving her wounds
You'll wish that they were yours
Problems up the rear,
They've all got their own fun...
If you're bringin' her down,
You're problem number one

Does it make you feel bigger
To trip those who brave
Who wear their colors
While you hide in the shade
I am not one with
A passion for law, but
You've fucked with my flower,
Your terminal flaw

And if I'm listening here
You think you're a king, a force to be feared

With the wrath of the red,
I'll be rage on all fours
If you're giving her wounds
You'll wish that they were yours
Problems up the rear,
They've all got their own fun...
If you're bringin' her down,
You're problem number one

I will dare to
I will swear to
I will save you every night
I will not stall
And if you fall
I will save you every night

Give me all your pieces
I will keep them away
Burdened with gorgeous nature
No scale could ever weigh
You're my feathers
You're my feathers,
Stay aloft for me, stay aloft for me
I'll be leather, I'll be leather
Holding you to me, holding you to me
Track Name: Ballrooms & Bridges
Ballrooms and bridges
Appear quite alike this late
But royalty wardrobes
Long for the way you radiate
Oh crescent chandelier,
Is my path far from here?
Give me nothing to fear

Whistle me a windy tune
A lullaby along the moon
For all we can't ensure
At least we're adventure
Through the time each night recalls
Rushing like Niagara Falls
Oh will our hearts endure
At least we're adventure

So many lungs are
Determined to be deflaters
We are the "doomed ones"
Still standing here years later
And when you're frozen low
I will stir you from the snow
Please come down from your window

Whistle me a windy tune
A lullaby along the moon
For all we can't ensure
At least we're adventure
Through the time each night recalls
Rushing like Niagara Falls
Oh will our hearts endure
At least we're adventure

I'm fading fast
Da da da da, da da da da
Rest well, we'll last
Da da da da, da da da da
I'll vow, I'll stay
Da da da da, da da da da
'Cause I can't
'Cause I can't
Slumber anywhere else anyway
Track Name: Rain Fable
I woke up inside
A dry and sterile box
Its embrace was first a blessing
I knew not of its locks

"The walls are your protection"
I heard the echos boom,
"They'll keep you from the scary things,
So frightful out this tomb"

I held those words as law
For they were all I knew
But I could hear the sounds
Drop around from a bigger truth

I pined to peek outside
To peer for but a breath
Nervously, I pulled a curtain back
And I saw life, not death

The clouds made their own way
All the beings were boundless
They had no roof above
But look at what they still possess

The walls chased me and screamed
"All is unchained in the air,
Without your roof you'll die"
I told them, "I'd be free out there"

(They screamed in fury...)

"Your spirit is trash,
You're just insane"
But I can hear each word
Fall with the rain (the rain)

(They screamed in fury...)

"Your spirit is trash,
You're just insane"
But I can hear each word
Fall with the rain (the rain)
Track Name: On The Hard Nights
Give me a taste of oxygen
I'm buried, wounded to the core
I cry out to silence until then
The suction drags me down for more

And it seems it will go
'Till I stop the show
But that my dear's my benchmark
'Cause the show can go on
If I make it to dawn
As a lonely flare in the dark

Relentless, your scars open up wide
They know how to punch into your shell
They lunge for your blood like a vampire
You know those fangs ever so well

Your soul is a bird
Too heavy for words
And yet it yearns for miles
You just have to get through
The night in front of you
Try to stay a little while

It's toughest to beat caverns
Devoid of the morning daybreaks
You're clawin' and God, it hurts
As your stomach does backflips and quakes
The strain is unbearable when
Every chip is a chilling climb, but
It's a little less terrible
Little more fareable
Little more dareable
One cliff at a time

And I love you, love you, love you,
But I'm so alone

(How long can I be here like this?)

You're a captain with crew
And too much to lose
Among every storm and spark
Burn as bright as you can
You're taking a stand
For the flares fighting in the dark

Tell me, why did you start?
Did a glow catch your heart?
There's another each mile
I never saw it coming
When I heard her humming
Try to stay a little while
Track Name: With You
Calendars stay
In the hardest ways
And you can feel it
When time just won't wait
Does anything last
Growing up so fast
You're looking up now
For a sign, for their trace

You got older
Over that shoulder
Raising stakes high, a
Real ace holder
When passing lights pull
Life invisible...
Did they let go
'Cause they've still got a hand

Though their cards have fleeted, it's clear
That they've still got a hand out here
Though their cards have fleeted, it's clear
That they've still got a hand out here
Out here...

When you're alone through the dark part of life
You lost an old friend and it cuts like a knife
Their story's still going in all that you do
You lived on with them, now they live on with you

Oh, they live on - live on
When you live on - live on too
Oh, they live on - live on
When you bring them - bring them through
Oh, they live on - live on
When you live on - live on too
When you bring them - bring them through
When you bring them - bring them through
They'd want it all - it all for you

When you're in bed recalling as you lay
You may find some advice their old laugh will convey
So laugh like hell along, and dream something new
And keep your souvenirs for them and for you

Oh, they live on - live on
When you live on - live on too
Oh, they live on - live on
When you bring them - bring them through
Oh, they live on - live on
When you live on - live on too
When you bring them - bring them through
They'd want it all - it all for you

When you're alone through the dark part of life
You lost an old friend and it cuts like a knife
Their story's still going in all that you do
You lived on with them, now they live on with you
Track Name: All That We Can Do
It's a slideshow
With my eyes closed
My gut is wrenched in knots
And they rope me...
Through the routine
Of the demons in my thoughts

There's a fissure
In each picture
And I'm drenched in molten pain
It's still storming
In the morning
And it doesn't go away

Is she a monster
With what haunts her
Unlike those with broken arms
On the outside
She is alright
But within, blare the alarms

By their standards
We might be broken, love
We're unconventional
But you fit like a glove
Through all the heartaches and
All that we still have now
All that we can do here
Is to survive somehow

Running circles
Through the hurdles
Just to keep my eyelids sealed
When mere assurance
Is endurance
That carries me behind its shield

I kick and fight
To get through the night
When I'm awake submerged neck deep
So I stir cloud shapes
Around me like capes
When I simply cannot sleep

You're not your demons
You are a beacon
Alive with a purpose
You are what moves you
Not who approves you
You are what you surface

By their standards
We might be broken, love
We're unconventional
But you fit like a glove
Through all the heartaches and
All that we still have now
All that we can do here
Is to survive somehow

Survive, survive, survive somehow
Survive, survive, survive somehow
Survive, survive, survive somehow
All that we can do here
Is to survive somehow
Track Name: Blue Eyes
All the ships eclipsing the ocean
Rustled and roared
Of the heart I adored
All its captains, seas and passions
Told of our tales, and our wind in the sails

I strung my Christmas lights up extra early
A chain of shimm'ring little sterling moons
I'd desired shine for ages
But still dim, the story's pages were...
I had let you disappear too soon

Riding through a picture perfect sunset
Tracing all the trees to guide my roam
I paused to look out far
But all the colors that there are...
Were painting me a map to get back home

The nightfall's awe
Had never made me feel so raw

All the ships eclipsing the ocean
Rustled and roared
Of the heart I adored
All its captains, seas and passions
Told of our tales, and our wind in the sails

I was huddled round a drifters' camp site
Trading stories of rulers we'd beat
The bond was oh so warming
While the sparks danced up, performing...
But still lay a chilly spot in my backseat

I was up late tailing a phoenix
Migrating under galaxies unheard
Its fury never shy
Its magic in great supply...
This wonder, my second favorite firebird

The wandering stars
Are still finding your dust from afar

All the ships eclipsing the ocean
Rustled and roared
Of the heart I adored
All its captains, seas and passions
Told of our tales, and our wind in the sails

Every month we wished to see saltwater
Waving from a peak way off the beach
I took the trip in health
With none to worry but myself...
Even so there was a sight I could not reach

That evening I laid down
Beside the water
Escaping to a gorgeous ocean view
The tide hugged me and swirled
With the whole weight of the world...
But I'd give it all to just be holding you

And up above
Purring atop all the waves we had loved

All the ships eclipsing the ocean
Rustled and roared
Of the heart I adored
All its captains, seas and passions
Told of our tales, and our wind in the sails

Oh I had quite a grin watching the vessels come back in
But the blue eyes of the sea paled to you
