Track Name: Cocoon
Come and sing to me the prettiest song you know
teach me all the words so you can let me go
I'll write it down, and I'll run away
I'll sing it in your blank, straight face

And I'll just go to sleep for days
I'll just doze off and never wake
Just to be away from you, just so I can feel removed

Run away from my life
like staring at the sun when it's too damn bright
Please, save me from the person I've been
quiet as murder, and holy as sin

I need salvation that no man can offer
Redemption beyond some tired, old, father
Save me from myself, make me let go
of the idea that all things are set in stone
Track Name: Ember
You are enslaved by your freedom
A moth to the flames of suffering and desire
Forever trapped by fluttering of your tiny wings!
This flight makes me dizzy; I'm nauseated by your dancing

Dance now to the flames reflected in my eyes!
Fly away now into the starless night sky!
Eat my wretched words, bits of paper and glass
because we both knew this dance wouldn't last all night

Stars are so bitter, so I consume as penance
all the light that now lingers in the corner of every room
I refuse to dance

Dance now to the flames reflected in my eyes!
Fly away now into the starless night sky!
Eat my wretched words, bits of paper and glass
because we both knew this dance wouldn't last all night

Take your time around your fire
'til it's just ember.
Track Name: The Mariner
My baby left for the sea.
"I'll come back to you," he promised me
And now, it's been so many years
Now I've cried an ocean of tears

Time is passing us by, my love
and you're still the only one I'm dreaming of
And I still scream your name in my dreams (my dreams, my dreams)
only to stand alone in the sea

Time is cruel, it's passing me by
Left me alone, left me high and dry
My heart will always be yours -
left throbbing on the salt soaked shores.
My heart is yours, heart is yours.
