Track Name: Intro
The day arrives that I'm bound in vague light.
I see for miles, but I am unfrightened.
Or so it seems.
Send me off and I will be swallowed by the breeze.
Painlessly, I'm free.
Track Name: Avión
I get to die here,
Where will they bury you?
Will they remember you?
But I pray the earth won't cover my bones.

How could it take so long to find some meaning?
All of those weights are gone
And my soul is fleeing through the grass and into gray
As dust and oil invade my veins.

I get to die here,
How will they send for you,
When you have gone away?
But I found some worth in freeing myself from guile.
Track Name: Girl Portraits
See me tonight, I'll finally be right
Because I want to know what it feels like.
Reach for my hand, ask for a dance
It is the perfect plan, you'll be my man.

You looked right past
So I'll clench my glass
And choke it back.

But I've got fight.
Dance to an empty room because I wanted to.

And all this space,
It is no fault of mine, this gap feels fine.

I got all dressed up tonight.
I want your eyes on me,
But you looked right through.
So I'll dance to an empty room.
Track Name: The Doctor's Grip
Sent to the basement again.
Sent to the basement and then
Here they come to extract my blood.
Made useless in my veins.
I can't see through the pain.
The doctor's loss is my gain.

This is what I want, my body to be gone,
But I can't escape the Doctor's grip.
I feel his hands around my neck,
They penetrate my flesh.
Their lies they'll inject to my IV drip.

Lay (me) down.
Track Name: The Heights
In my dreams I see the day
When the sun will come to evaporate
My fragile mind into the air.
Just hold on, it's almost there.
And from these heights, I'll stand up straight
as the time arrives to precipitate.

What will they say when they find out?
Track Name: Harbor
Sleep now, I don't know what you need.
Just hold me.
Give me this night before I leave.
I fear the tide may take me.
This ship will be my grave.


As ships traverse the sea,
My faith is shaken free.
I fear no tide.
At last I'm safe inside the harbor.

In the harbor.
