Track Name: What Fiction Is For
I heard it calling out to me
And I wondered if I'd ever go
Illusions of understanding where we come from
It tears at the soul of what fiction is for

You kissed me clearly after an image of
A cleaner family than you had
Illuminating worlds beyond our eyes
No page but this rush is what fiction is for

I get bigger when there's something to run from
I wanna see it up against my shape
It's only stories so don't act like you're afraid
And changing endings is what fiction's for
Track Name: Absence
Day you ride away from me
Taking light and leaving grief
I keep the hurt I'd rather feel
and watch the shadow from my knees

A blanket and a radio
Remind me of that place we know
I cut my finger, pressed it too
You let me bleed a bit for you

I get faith that's unshakeable
I get faith that's unbreakable
Don't you doubt it?

I'd meet you if you knew the way
Follow night and greet the day
Showing's only half as pure
And memory's the only cure

I get faith that's unshakeable
I get faith that's unbreakable
Don't you doubt it?

Don't you doubt it?
Absence I'm ready
Track Name: Less
When you leave it doesn't hurt me
It doesn't hurt me so much as it heals
Less a love than an idea
An idea I had
Those are the shadows I keep walking through
Over the mystics I've stopped looking to
Grateful for nothing and nothing we lose

How can I say what is missing
What is missing when language is gone
Less a love than a delay
A delay in the end
Listening for voices when only you heard
Trusting they're certain when no one is sure
Desperate for feeling collecting your words

Image of faith but it is burning
It is burning a hole in my hand
Less a prayer than a reminder
A reminder to go
Circling back to make life where I stand
Hold up your memory any way that I can
Claiming the thread of the life you began
Claiming the thread of the life you began
Track Name: Faking
I'm faking
that I won't regret
Breaking my own rules but
this isn't over yet
For you & me

Can we put down
our machines
and look to each other
to hold these memories
Can we put down
our machines
I'm ready to see us
outside a fantasy

I'm racing
It just gets farther out
Basing my world-view
on images and untruths
of you & me

Can we put down
our machines
and look to each other
to hold these memories
Can we put down
our machines
I'm ready to see us
outside a fantasy

I'm reaching through
an image of you

Can we put down
our machines
and look to each other
to hold these memories
Can we put down
our machines
I'm ready to see us
outside a fantasy
