Track Name: The Distant Peninsula
When life’s not the same anymore / death knocking on your door
Calling “come to me, come to me” / begging you to join the war

We have to move away / to a quiet house on the shore
Away from the pain / away from the war

I’m sorry, but this is the way / the way it has to be
We flee to safety / the shelter of the sea

We’ll start our lives anew / with a chance to be ourselves
Away from the warfront / away from the danger

You’ll find a new way / to find the world
Though things have changed / it’s still the same

Locked away in your home / sound and safe away from the war
Locked away; locked away / sound and safe

Away from the life / with death knocking on your door
Calling “come to me, come to me”
Track Name: ... And The Garden Shed
Let’s find something / hidden deep away
Something buried in dust / with age turned grey
Locked away / in the shadows of time
Lost in the maze / of slowly growing vines

Something’s buried here / hidden deep inside
Wanting to breathe new air / wanting a new life
Let’s find what’s new / yet old all the same
Let’s find what hides / within this old house frame

The mist rolls over / this slowly rotting shed
Left to decay, by whatever may / come by
The treasures within / that may have never seen the light
Left to decay, by whatever may / come by

Let’s find something / hidden deep away
Something buried in dust / with age turned grey
Locked away / in the shadows of time
Lost in the maze / of slowly growing vines

The mist rolls over / this slowly rotting shed
Left to decay, by whatever may / come by
The treasures within / that may have never seen the light
Left to decay, by whatever may / come by

Something’s buried here / hidden deep inside
Wanting to breathe new air / wanting a new life
A home once full of life / now cold and dead
A once beautiful home / and the garden shed
Track Name: Statues In The Grass
The grass in the shade / the ever-growing shade
Days that grow longer / leaving me far behind
I wake to see the sun / the length of the darkness grows
I retrace the words in my mind / the day I crossed the line

There’s nothing here / there’s nothing to fear
So let me go / to rising waters against the shore
Soon they’ll recede / and I’ll be safe
So let me go

They’re coming after me / but I knew this soon would come
So I lied to you so you can be safe / I hope you can forgive me
They’re rising with the water / losing their stone forms
They’re coming, they’re rising / and I think it’s time to leave

The grass in the shade / the ever-growing shade
Days that grow longer / leaving me far behind
I wake to see the sun / the length of the darkness grows
I retrace the words in my mind / the day I crossed the line
Track Name: Things Are Not Quite The Way We Planned
There’s something hidden beneath / something hidden within
There’s monsters coming out of the shadows / coming from within

Watch out, watch out / they’re coming out now

The woods hide the very things you hate / the things you fear the most
Monsters that make your knees quake / they’re coming out of their holes

Dark clouds are rolling in / lightning flashes overhead
Something very bad is happening / you better get inside

Watch out, watch out / they’re coming out now

The woods hide the very things you hate / the things you fear the most
Monsters that make your knees quake / they’re coming out of their holes

Watch out, watch out / they’re coming out now (x4)

The monsters that hide away / you better run fast
You better hide, hide, run for your life / they’re coming out now

You better hide, hide, run for your life / they’re coming out now

Watch out, watch out / they’re coming out now

The woods hide the very things you hate / the things you fear the most
Monsters that make your knees quake / they’re coming out of their holes
Track Name: Diving To The Wreck
I feel the pull / the strengthening will
The rushing waves / hungry for a kill
They want to eat me alive / bring me down to their depths
But here I; hold on

Stay in the boat above / in the safety of the air
Away from the waves of death / please my love, do take care
You don’t need to fight this battle / and it’s not one you can win
So stay safe in your boat above / I’ll let the nails dig into my skin

Hold on / hold on
This is not your time to leave / not your time to die
So hold on / stay above the water
Don’t drown in the wake / of what you have yet to become

Don’t drown in the wake / of what you have yet to become

Stay in the boat above / in the safety of the air
Away from the waves of death / please my love, do take care
You don’t need to fight this battle / and it’s not one you can win
So stay safe in your boat above / I’ll let the nails dig into my skin

I feel the pull / the strengthening will
The rushing waves / hungry for a kill
They want to eat me alive / bring me down to their depths
But here I / hold on
Track Name: Tell Your Tale
I know there’s something you’re hiding from me / I can see it in your eyes
You better stop your lying to me / it’s just a flimsy disguise

You’re holding on to your secrets / because you think it’s for the best
If you don’t watch out, someone’s going to die / and you don’t want that on your conscience
You’re waiting for the serpent to pull you under / to pull the air from you
And if you give up now it’s not gonna end / you’ll lose more that you knew

So spill your secrets, tell your tale / someone’s gonna win, someone’s gonna fail

There’s something beneath your skin / something just itching to get out
The devil is in the details / wanting to spill out of your mouth

You’re holding on to your secrets / because you think it’s for the best
If you don’t watch out, someone’s going to die / and you don’t want that on your conscience
You’re waiting for the serpent to pull you under / to pull the air from you
And if you give up now it’s not gonna end / you’ll lose more that you knew

So spill your secrets, tell your tale / someone’s gonna win, someone’s gonna fail
There’s a price to be paid / and the debtor knows his dues
So don’t try your tricks / the devil knows your ruse

I know there’s something you’re hiding from me / I can see it in your eyes
You better stop your lying to me / it’s just a flimsy disguise

There’s something beneath your skin / something just itching to get out
The devil is in the details / wanting to spill out of your mouth
So just tell what you know / no worse will come of it
So just stop your lying / tell the words I know you’re dying to spit

You’re holding on to your secrets / because you think it’s for the best
If you don’t watch out, someone’s going to die / and you don’t want that on your conscience
You’re waiting for the serpent to pull you under / to pull the air from you
And if you give up now it’s not gonna end / you’ll lose more that you knew

So spill your secrets, tell your tale / someone’s gonna win, someone’s gonna fail
There’s a price to be paid / and the debtor knows his dues
So don’t try your tricks / the devil knows your ruse
You can’t hide this forever / these things always find the light
If you hold on forever / someone’s gonna die in this fight
So spill your secrets, tell your tale / someone’s gonna win, someone’s gonna fail
Track Name: 1942
As the serpent pulls me under / the water covers my eyes
It floods into my lungs / is this how it feels to die?
Track Name: When The Haunted Come To Life
They’re breathing in the shadows / the faceless come to life
I never quite understand / how these things came to light
It’s not like there was sanctuary / for these souls
So now they haunt our world / as ever-seeking ghosts
And we go humming along / like nothing’s wrong
And say to ourselves / “it’s just fine”

So here I draw the line / this is where I make my stand

They’re breeding in the shadows / waiting for their time
Plotting their revenge / for things that should be mine
They’re bitter in their words / their ever haunting stares
I feel them coming closer / slowly climbing stairs

So here I draw the line / this is where I make my stand

I hold my breath / and hope that they will leave
I’ve been living so / it’s time for you to see
I can’t take your pain away / so let me be
I can’t make up for his mistakes / why can’t you see?

They’re breathing in the shadows / the faceless come to life
I never quite understand / how these things came to light
It’s not like there was sanctuary / for these souls
So now they haunt our world / as ever-seeking ghosts

So here I draw the line / this is where I make my stand

I hold my breath / and hope that they will leave
I’ve been living so / it’s time for you to see
I can’t take your pain away / so let me be
I can’t make up for his mistakes / why can’t you see?

So here I draw the line / this is where I make my stand
And if I / make the mistake of forgetting the way back home
Please forgive me / I did this for you

Don’t fear the serpent / it only wants just one
Don’t fear the water / feel the sun

I hold my breath / and hope that they will leave
I’ve been living so / it’s time for you to see
I can’t take your pain away / so let me be
I can’t make up for his mistakes / why can’t you see?

As the serpent pulls me under / the water covers my eyes
It floods into my lungs / is this how it feels to die?
Track Name: Drowned
I’m leaving behind / all the people I once cared about
But it’s something I need to let go of / if I want to survive the earth that wants me drowned

When I woke up all I saw was the sun / now as I go to sleep, it’s just the waves
Pulling me down and under / the earth leaves me betrayed

As the serpent pulls me under / the water covers my eyes
It floods into my lungs / is this how it feels to die?

Is it really the earth / or something far more sinister?
Something I can’t see / something with an evil curse

As the serpent pulls me under / the water covers my eyes
It floods into my lungs / is this how it feels to die?
When I woke up all I saw was the sun / now as I go to sleep, it’s just the waves
Pulling me down and under / the earth leaves me betrayed

Is it really the earth / or something far more sinister?
Something I can’t see / something with an evil curse

I’ve witnessed far more than I should’ve seen / the evil lurking within the walls
The statues seem to smile at me / they want to pull me down, to drown, and fall beneath

As the serpent pulls me under / the water covers my eyes
It floods into my lungs / is this how it feels to die?
When I woke up all I saw was the sun / now as I go to sleep, it’s just the waves
Pulling me down and under / the earth leaves me betrayed

I’m leaving behind / all the people I once cared about
But it’s something I need to let go of / if I want to survive the earth that wants me drowned
