Phoenix 03:58
In every Life, is Time and Space A Future to a Future, I see your face I don't want to start, if I can not stop I want to take it from the bottom, and lift it to the top You don't have to pretend, if you don't want me around Your the one walking in, I'm the one walking out How we came so far apart under this Sky, That we are alive under right now Listen to your Heart it's burning
Ghost 03:41
Where have you been? In the shadows like a Ghost I can't see your eyes I can't feel where your coming from Loose like the dust, and piled like the past It lingers like smoke, the pain I feel inside But no I won't tremble In time, maybe you will begin to see. In time, maybe you'll see what you did to me I won't wish it was another way, and I'll be grateful that I have today. Take what was given and turn it around some way. You still appear like a Ghost in the light So I'll keep you lit up till you burn through the night This coldness keeps you frozen, but there is a time to fight. But we all can stick together Come out of the shadows, and free your mind...Come home
Who else do you want me to be? I never said it would be easy
Swallowed 03:53
Somewhere in the heartland Somewhere in this place You put your heart in someone's hand, so they couldn't be replaced Sitting up in the water-tower was like sitting up in space You watched me as I stumbled, the look upon my face I watch the waves as they crumble, I watch you as you dress Both could sooth the savage, but will it ever rest
When everything is right, Signs of who we are We might find some truth, like counting distant stars You are not alone Everywhere we hide, we give ourselves away It's time to shed the light, for everyone to see You are not alone Give us strength to carry on To say our peace, and to sing our song To be here in this burning moment, and see ourselves the way Gods chosen To forgive, not to forget To break these chains of what we regret The time is now and the stones are set You are not alone
In the Midnight, when I lose myself Step into the window light, I see a reflection of the past And what we had, and who I used to be Crowded by your intentions, and who I could never be Such sweet sight, the sun I'm just broken man, and the night has just begun In the Midnight
On the other side I feel the walking dead and lonely spirits In my head I walk alone, but I know that you won't hear it Crying out like a shotgun blast, you hit me hard and you hit me fast Broken dreams were they meant to last, I know some would say so. Lift the weight like a telescope lens, point it to the night that we know within, look with all our might, but we only begin to see. You never know it, but the stars revolve around you Your only guessing because you leave it up to chance


I re-mixed and mastered the Phoenix EP which originally was released in 2015. The Special Edition includes two b-side versions (Midnight, Telescope), a remix by Fishing The Sky, and digital artwork I created for the album along with cover art and linear note.
Much Gratitude!
