Track Name: Cremation
Step into the water
It's colder than you expect
But your feet don't get wet
It's a strange effect

Always going further
When there's nothing left
Try to correct
But it's all a mess

When you head west
Is there pain in your chest
When I catch my breath
And try to express
Why should there be
A difference between my mind and my body

An esoteric medium
To read through the meaning
Of the waves' strange leaving
Words and feelings

I do believe
When I first heard you breath
The sand ran through the weave
And stole my grief
Track Name: Canyon Song
The Canton walls are quiet now
And sunlight has drowned out the rain
There's no lying now
Nothing remains the same

Your hair's like the water
There's silt in your skin
It hasn't been long
But time won't come again
It's the power of silence
In the forging of friends
There's nothing to say
But that everything ends

Sometimes the flow is violent
But fear is not felt by the weak
It's so beautiful
So real and so perfect, and never complete
