Track Name: Lumina
Lyrics:
all my life I been thinking about
how to drop my care listen to the now
It's easy you'd think
receive it, don't blink

all my life I been swimmin through this
you see my drown down now in nostalgia bliss
into the blue sea again
back to the start of the end

I'm so wasted, alone
hesitation takes it's toll
like medication for your soul
I'm so wasted and alone
Track Name: Fade Away
it’s been so long since we left home
can you show me the way?
burn smoke signals and mark your door
shine a light like before

seasons came to look the same
living day after day
ooh i feel so strange
nothings gonna change

don’t you fade
don’t let it fade away
don’t you let it
don’t let it fade away
don’t you fade
don’ let it fade away

fear to fade away
do you feel the rain?
Track Name: See the Sun
wash away the rainy days
friends they don’t come through

kept away, those words you said
never felt true

lost inside
your head not mine

see the sun in your eyes
watch the world passing you by

evaporate your situation
frozen youth won’t do

cant erase the simple fate -
we all wait it through

when light it comes
your life’s begun

see the sun in your eyes
watch the world passing you by

sun...eyes...world...passing you by
Track Name: Reappear
Where’d our time go?
Lost on hollow roads

All the time I spent
wishing you were here
All the time I lost
it reappeared

Where do choices lead?
Mirror to destiny

All the time I spent
wishing you were here
All the time I lost
it reappeared

Reappear

Where’d your voice go?
I don’t buy that you are fine

All the time I spent
wishing you were here
All the time I lost
it reappeared

Reappear
Reappear
Track Name: Tuff Time
When you fall I'm here again
On that hill where time suspends
Go

See that light
Come from above
Not feeling right

What's done is done.
Track Name: Halo
when I called your name
you left me too long
behind a black halo

signs of what we are
we’re in a cycle
repeat the cycle

say the words in your head
for the first time
we’ll open that silo

Safe under the sheets
it’s watching me
alone a fire in the night sky

shake me away
awake from the nightmare
science of the scare
surrounding me
Track Name: Channels
Something strange is happening
I've got my eyes open to the wind

I'm feeling alright now I have given in
I feel forever like this

I start to speak but I stop
From colors in my head
I channel over to you
Echoes of what was said

I channel only to you
I channel only to you

Feelin' the best I ever did
You keep my around for what's next

I'm feeling alright now
I can breathe again
It takes a lifetime for this

I start to speak but I stop
From colors in my head
I channel over to you
Echoes of what was said
Echoes of what was said
channel only to you
channel only to you
