Track Name: The Crossing
I'll soldier on
Though the journey has just begun
Blinded by the light
Heat is beating down, down again
Body in disarray
Though I know I keep on standing tall
And I know we'll see it through

Honour your word
Though the journey has just begin
Take every care
To answer these questions that were left behind
Body in disarray
Time to clear the air for all
Of this poisoning
That we're breathing in

We're not so innocent
We're bound so tightly
You know it matters
It's a chance in tatters
A fading memory
As we turn back and say
You know we kept our promise
We'll be back some day
Track Name: It's a Shame About Ray
I've never been too good with names.
The cellar door was open, I could never stay away.
I know it's probably not my place.
It's either or, I'm hoping for a simple way to say.

It's a shame about Ray.
In the stone, under the dust,
His name is still engraved.
Some things need to go away.
It's a shame about Ray.

If I make it through today,
I'll know tomorrow not to put my feelings out on display.
I'll put the cobwebs back in place.
I've never been to good with names,
But I remember faces.
