Darkness 01:54
Out of the darkness in the blackness of night Flit through the forest following lights Flutter and flap at the flames that will Burn our singed wings back to the dust whence we came In the dark waters, in hurricane gales The rip tides are pulling, the wind drives our sails Onto the rocks and the waves that will Break up our bows In a watery grave And we'll rust and we'll drown and we're lost to decay Above the darkness in the black holes of space Wandering stars fallen from grace Gravity pulls us, we shoot and we Burn up on entry One last flash of light Everything endeth tonight Drawn into the darkness The glittering dross Not all that wander are lost

I remember when the stars came out that night Every one was burning bright I remember candlelight Burnt into our memory To keep us alive I'm waiting for you I wish that our dreams came true I remember sitting on the cliff Watching distant passing ships The ropes were tied we could not drift And though we will forget them They cannot be undone I'm waiting for you I wish that our dreams came true I dreamt we were walking through the woods Forgotten gardens underfoot I remember where we stood Dreams are only memories That haven't happened yet I'm waiting for you I wish that our dreams came true I remember golden autumn leaves Falling from the chestnut trees I dreamt we were weak at the knees This is just the season Between dreams and memories I'm waiting for you I wish that our dreams came true

I'm Scared 01:38
I’m scared of failing I’m scared of trying I’m scared of what you will think I’m scared of giving up I’m scared of sharing I’m scared of caring I’m scared of being the worst I’m scared of things going wrong I’m scared of living I’m scared of not trying I’m scared of it being my fault I’m scared of not being good I’m scared of dying I’m scared of losing you I’m scared of getting old I’m scared of being alone I’m scared of changing I’m scared of not changing I’m scared of being someone else I’m scared of being myself I’ll try to not care I won’t try to change you I’ll try to shake it off I’m tired of fighting over you

Since the leaves started falling My roots have become numb Still the spring is sleeping Bare limbs in the sun Since the wind started howling I’ve been holding on Is this life that you're living Really going so wrong? I had it all worked out Then we left in pain Now this empty shell Is all that remains So break me And bring me back again Now like seeds we are scattered Blown to the four winds Talking through fibre These copper wires are home Wherever we travel We’re kissed by the same sun The same silver moonlight Embraces every one I had it all worked out Then we left in pain Now this empty shell Is all that remains So break me And bring me back again

Queen Bee 05:14
Hidden in the trees In the darkness of the leaves There is wax, there is pollen, there is gold And I'm following The lines of black and gold Scouting out a place to build a home When the sun is rising it will burn off the black clouds With smoke signals they will track us down Now we are rising and flocking in black clouds When the hive is swarming they will smoke it out You're the queen bee You're the bees knees If I steal your honey Please don't sting me You're the queen bee You're the bees knees You can be whatever you wanted to be Butterflies and moths collide The birds and the bees fill the skies You always see through my disguise When I look into your five eyes When the sun is rising it will burn off the black clouds With smoke signals they will track us down Now we are rising and flocking in black clouds When the hive is swarming they will smoke it out You're the queen bee You're the bees knees If I steal your honey Please don't sting me You're the queen bee You're the bees knees You can be whatever you wanted to be When the flowers have died Come and hide inside the hive When the flowers are all gone We will lose our homes How ever far I stray I will never stay away Wherever I roam I will always find my way back home

River run fast River run steep River run cool River run deep Mountain stand tall Mountain stand strong Mountain stand firm Mountain stand long Cygnus is flying high Cepheus shining bright Delphin he leaps tonight Into the milky light I was faster I was stronger I was harder I was deeper River run fast River run steep River run cool River run deep Mountain stand tall Mountain stand strong Mountain stand firm Mountain stand long Fire burn bright Fire burn hot Fire burn sticks Fire burn logs Badger dig deep Into the hole Badger my life Badger my soul Cygnus is flying high Cepheus shining bright Delphin he leaps tonight Into the milky light When the stars came out From behind dark clouds You would not answer me Except in my dreams I was faster I was stronger I was harder I was deeper We are our own Let's take it slow And when we go Please take me home
