Track Name: This Town is a Ghost Town pt. II
The past knocks at my door
While outside shadows pass by
With the shapes of faces I once knew
If I could close my eyes
And wake up in my bed
Look my out my window and know this town isn't dead
This town isn't dead yet

Has time washed away who I am
Like oceans leaving the shore blank
Have I become trapped in the pictures on my wall
Aging with the fading colors

This town's a ghost town
Where our hopes once lived
We put our names in a bottle
And buried ourselves here
When the last light went out
Distance took it's place between us
Without so much as a goodbye
We became shadows of this life

This town's not dead yet
Track Name: Good Love
Good love where have I found myself
Floating all these oceans away
In search of what I thought were the good shores you had made
I fell asleep, woke in a dream
Now I'm deciding between this life
And the waking world I was born for

I'm drowning in the faces around me
And the ideas of where we were to be
One breath into this life
And one breath it could leave
Are you asking am I waiting for the flames beneath
Are you asking am I waiting for the flames beneath my feet
Track Name: August pt. II
We were brothers in this life
You were the left hand
I was the right
Bus station early August
Summer brought the dreams we had dreamt
Youth stretched out before us
It's great arms taking us in
Separate roads begging to be traveled
Blazing nights traveling these white lines
Where are you now singing my friend

What siren songs did we sing all along
As the months turned to years
And the years to ashes

I stepped in the months like puddles to remind myself I could be drowning
Is this the sound of progression
Aging with ageless pictures, fading
Well my friends I'm trapped in those years
While the pages keep on turning
Like a book sitting at an empty window sill

"For the endless horizon it's gained a few buildings here and there
Someday we'll get out of this ghost town"
Track Name: There's No Ghost Left To Haunt This Home
"There's No Ghost Left to Haunt this Home"

Like any other chord
Like any other song
I took a drive
Like any other night
Any other day
I saw the change
I heard these white lines
And the ghosts in the street lights
Calling me
I felt my youth
And I felt my age
Calling me

There's no ghost left to haunt this home
Only the memories we left in pictures
When we would sing of all our hopes
Silence grows cold like concrete walls drying
Is this what we've become

The faces from the pictures have changed
But the dreams have been the same
Where have you gone my friends
And the way I remember you
We made promises together
We made plans for forever
We walked on with only ashes for the wind

"I swear someday we'll finish these dreams we started together"
Track Name: Between Two Mirrors
I can't feel the words I sing anymore
How I wonder what it's like for you
Only this confession can bring redemption to the souls of my words
"We walked the same roads shoulder to shoulder"
We bled the same dreams
Yet you're hiding between every emotion unseen just to push that grit through your teeth
The waves have betrayed us
Have we the fate of sunken cities resting beneath the waves

I saw your ghost again
Trapped between two mirrors
Endlessly reflecting the image of what we were
Have our pictures been laid to rest
In the memories of people we don't know anymore

And the evil I've become, is it such a stretch from what I was

I know your face but I don't know your name
I've never known such a wrath as this life
Twisting and turning and back and forth
Have we tied anchors to our legs
Are we drowning

It's been a long goodbye
These sails have set a course you may never follow
