Track Name: Hell is Real
the expanse of your eyes fades into the space
between what is, and what was, only a taste
of the greatness we could have achieved, but
time doesn't mean much to me

hell is real
northwest indiana
you can tell by the way that it feels
I'll see you

the vast open silence surrounds us at last
a terrible beauty, the eyes of the past
will not serve us, the moment is here
in your hands, there is nothing to fear

hell is real
north carolina
maybe the wisdom of the land of the sky
can heal us
I'll see you

the determined determines the determiner
control me no more foul hearse, dark horse
you're more than a gift
and I'm more than a curse

the ridgelines fade silently into the fog
finally alive here, been searching too long
to acknowledge my own lack of form
the strange essence from which I've been torn

hell is real
blue ridge mountains
alone now, beginning to feel
what it's like to be alive without you

your moonlight smile resolves into the place
where I become nothing, wild and waste
lands have taken us as far as we can see but
cause doesn't mean much to me

hell is real
north carolina
it's raining again, can't you hear
can't you see that I'll miss you
Track Name: True Beautiful
winter is coming
hear the wind humming
through every gate
it's cold, and beautiful

to share everything
is final
it's violent
and true

darkness is falling
voices are calling
you to your fate
it's cold, and beautiful

to see another
as the same
is unexplainable
and true

shadows are growing
feel how they're flowing
there's no escape
it's cold, and beautiful
