Track Name: Go
As of late in all my dreams I'm floating out into a dark black, empty sea.
Loss of space and loss of time. I could be dead but I've still got my mind.
If I'm able to think then I'm able to create a world for me.
Foreign tongues and foreign bodies, bright white lights, celestial bodies.
My new home may be so far away from me and my dreams.

It's not to say that I'm unhappy in this world.
But if I had the choice to leave, I would go.

Go: Leave the people here behind.
Go: Do what's best for your own life.
Go: Leave the people here behind.
Go: They don't know what it is like.
Track Name: Underneath The Ice
Bury me ten feet below where I stand - underneath the ice.
27 years can't be considered a phase, and I just don't feel human.
Preserve my body for future generations.
I hope that I can relate to them in ways I could never relate to you
Trying to fit in has done nothing but cause me pain.
Trying to fit in has done nothing but cause me to cause others pain.
Trying to fit in has done nothing but cause me pain and I don't want to live this way anymore.
It's as if the world that I see has shifted three units to the right on the inter-dimensional plane.
Everything is mostly the same, but also everything is mostly different.
And this deviation has been the source of all this pain, discomfort, and inability to connect with my fellow people.
Bury me ten feet below where I stand - underneath the ice.
Track Name: Winter Wellness
Look outside - a perfect scene.
The winter air strengthens me.
Rays of sun slip through the pines.
I feel content as it reflects off the ice.
And the snow is falling down; its beauty surrounds.

I will say my name to remind the world that I'm alive.
And I will watch the breath trail off my lips
To this December sky where it will disappear in time.
For lack of a better phrase I must say that I feel perfect in this place.
Inside there is a chill that never leaves but it is oddly comforting.
Deep within me there might be a man that's never sad.
If he were to exist this would be the place it was at.

I can hear the wind in the trees.
I understand the language that it speaks.
Winter wellness is what I need.

Winter wellness is what I need.
I'll take a deep breath and let it restore me.
I most certainly believe that the cold enlivens me.
