Caves 03:38
Your shadow gave me such a fright, cast on cave walls Our adventure comes to a pause, I see the flaws I’ve been here maybe in a dream, so it seems Life and love, somewhere in between You say it’s not so scary, not so scary Whisper again, not so scary, not so scary Stalactite tears drip to the floor, night and day Haunted beings frozen in their place, to live this way I think I’m losing how to feel, will I heal? ‘Til I’m found in purgatory You say it’s not so scary, not so scary Whisper again, not so scary, not so scary You yell down, not so scary, not so scary Tell me again, not so scary, not so scary I’ve sold the vessels to my heart, to that one cave And to our culture, I am a slave, down to the grave I’d never know I was alone, was I shown? Paid the price to call this my home You say it’s not so scary, not so scary Whisper again, not so scary, not so scary I would say, do you love me, do you love me? Say it again, do you love me, do you love me?

My hopes a boat, I float across the sea Into your arms I'm wishing that we'll finally meet I dive from my platform up in the sky Hoping you'll catch me, hoping you'll catch me before I die My life's a lonely island far from truth All I have are broken memories of you They're barely there they're barely even real Yet I give them life with all that I feel La di da la di da la di da You think my smile was crafted by the years I've been alone with all of my worst fears Sure that's it, but there is just a tad bit more I asked for this, I asked to smile into the shores You think my word has died with my name Those who knew me think that I have gone insane But you're the fool, see sinking in your moat A corked bottle and my words on a note La di da la di da la di da

Tears 03:29
I've told you once and I'll tell you again For two and a half years I thought we were the best of friends That's gone It ends Tears, my dear, tears How to go back when there was nothing there? You're smiling at me but I just look at you and stare We fall Apart We've fallen apart There's nothing you can do to change my heart We've fallen apart So has my heart Tears, my dear, tears My weaknesses are too much for your strengths How much more can you take? I see you Give in Tears, my dear, tears Don't get to think that I'm the last name on your list Again your lovely lips will be kissed You have The world We've fallen apart There's nothing you can do to change my heart We've fallen apart There's nothing you can do to change my heart We've fallen apart There's nothing you can do to change my heart We've fallen apart So has my heart

To the oceans found on my cheeks You dive deep To the coral reefs I've lost you I've lost you I'm lost I can barely see Where are you? Do you see me? From the oceans flowing in my brain There is pain I've gone insane I've scared you I've scared you I'm scared can you understand? Take my hand from beneath the sand Will you dive up through the pouring rain To meet me at the shoreline of my veins Instead you move with such buoyancy Looking down at me Looking right through me Buried in the waters of my soul There is more At the ocean floor What are they? These treasures Hidden so long from me Please reveal all your secrecy In the oceans traveling through your heart You're torn apart By her poisonous dart She cut you She cut you So cut through her scathing grip Salty water drips from your lonely lips Will you dive up through the pouring rain To meet me at the shoreline of my veins Instead you move with such buoyancy Looking down at me Looking right through me

about

Thank you for buying our CD! Now, kindly pause it and remove it from your car stereo. Then, with some of those fancy headphones plugged into your old disc-man, sit down, close your eyes, and try again! There! Now you can hear the spaces that these songs were recorded in.

soundscape | noun
/'soun(d)scāp/
: a mix of musical and sometimes non-musical sounds creating a sound portrait of an immersive environment.

Each of these songs is a soundscape. The spaces used were meaningful to the songs' creation. We deliberately left the natural reverb, acoustics, and miscellaneous sounds that occurred in those environments.

From Paige
So, a 'Thank You' goes out to Mom, Dad, Missy, and Becky for journeying with us, listening to us, and supporting us. Thank you to our #1 fans: Julie Murphy, Christina Torbey, Stenia Trusilo, and Meagan Sachs. Thanks for never missing a show! Even the little ones. Thanks Tamara Boyes for helping me find me again (which also took all the tension out... funny how that works!) And thank you Jesus for Your timing, Your gifts, and Your perfect Love.

From Ryan
I would like to thank my parents for being so supportive throughout my musical endeavors...amongst others. I would like to thank my bandmate Paige for keeping this band together though all of our schedule changes and bandmates these past 8 years!
