Track Name: STRAIGHTENERS & FASTENERS - TRIBUTARY
If we had time to consider
The creation we shared
We could hold it in our hands
Our hearts and souls bared

CHORUS
Our souls made flesh
Our bodies made whole
Never think
Never know

We could fling away our bodies
They seal away our souls
We could stand on the shores of the ocean
And speak of tales unknown

CHORUS

If we could hold the fire inside us
And burn away our bones
We could learn to love this empty land
And our blood be stained with snow

CHORUS
Track Name: WHAT HOLDS YOU
Hold on to every memory as tomorrow spills away
The wound it grows deeper as you concentrate your pain
You can stand there thinking if that's just what you do
Hope for the return of the you that I once knew

CHORUS
What is this emptiness?
What you pour inside?
What you hold so close?
What that angel sighed?
What this heart needs?
What angers your skin?
What holds you to this memory?
What holds you to this sin?

Look into any mirror and see somebody else
Looking for mirror in which to see themselves
Fall into the water and out the other side again
What would you call yourself if I were to call you friend?

CHORUS

The promise of better times are drown within your fears
No pleasure gained from anger in a glass of bitter tears
No lessons learned from anger a greater good is lost
If you never set aside your bones and never count the cost

CHORUS
