The past has never left
But silently I remain
As everything passes by

And I remembered
How light fell
Into my eyes
Composing memories

Track Name: The Past Has Never Left
I climb across the walls you've built around me
Blocking every sight of a hurtful memory

And the line is slowly fading
Where the lie ends and I begin
Somehow I can't remember
Who I once used to be

We line up our defences and take a distance
Lethargic moments pass without disturbance

You're talking like you better than me

I've tried to believe again
And let your Christ clean my slate
Never lack of phony friends
To make me love things that I hate
Track Name: But Silently I Remain
We fade away
A never ending good-bye
Feels more faint every moment

Your light dims
Resonating among a billion stars
Every cycle the wave shrinks
And so does the beating of my heart
Track Name: How Light Fell
True yet everchanging
I imagined you
Our latent illusion
Known immanent lie

False fading reflections
Swore I imagined you
Lakes mirroring landscapes
Our latent memories

These realities converge
Is this all we'll ever learn
Track Name: Composing Memories
This is the last time you've hurt me
I lied to myself
This love has turned itself against me
And kills me inside
Every mirror has your face on it
And every word spells your name

This time I've put it all behind me
I lied to myself
I am surrounded by your absense
Reminded of you
Every image displays our memories
And every sound sings your name
