Track Name: The Days of Deferment
THE DAYS OF DEFERMENT:

Is this just where you want to be
Stuck in between each failing dream
Where all you’ve known is dead and gone
Where what was right now feels so wrong?

Is this the place where you find yourself?

(Oh) The best of times can’t hide your weakness
The emptiness only increases
With hope deferred the heart has grown sick
What can you do to rise above it?

See how your back begins to break
Beneath the weight of tested faith
Will broken pieces fall in line…
Or will distraction always blind?

Is this the place where you find yourself?
Is this the place where you loose yourself?

(Oh) The best of times can’t hide your weakness
The emptiness only increases
With hope deferred the heart has grown sick
What can you do to rise above it?

And will relief yet flow through methods less than ordinary -
Through feats to persevere, to serve, or to surrender fully?
And will new life now spring from ashes ever clothed in memory?
And if the choice is yours to make, then please decided it quickly

(Oh) The best of times can’t hide your weakness
The emptiness only increases
With hope deferred the heart has grown sick
When will we fight and rise above it?

Track Name: The Refrain
THE REFRAIN:

Tonight I can’t escape…
The sound of falling rain –
The sound we shared before our world was torn apart.
I still recall the time…
When your hand last held mine
Now lonely hours pass without knowing your touch.

Why….can I not hear you?
Why….can I not feel you?

They say we’ll meet again;
That this is not the end,
But I can’t face the journey if I walk alone.
I’m so unsettled here
I want to disappear
I want to sleep forever in your loving arms.

Why….can I not hear you?
Why….can I not feel you?

As I cry out…
Cry...
Cry...
Cry...
Cry...
Cry...

Why….can I not hear you?
Why….can I not feel you?
Why?
Why?
Why?
I need an answer…
As I cry out.
