LYRICS
Love in Vein

Heavy as lead in a medicine secret
Turning the sights on a narrow-go-round
Limited mind never looking for answers
Vanishing light never hitting the ground

And the beauty blinds you
And it cools the strain
And it hides inside you
Like a love in vein

Silhouette tear on a pillow of sorrow
Look-a-like pain as a ticket to go
Cities of light for a memory season
Dressing your mind for millennium low

‘Cause the beauty blinds you
And it cools the strain
And it hides inside you
Like a love in vein

Visibility

The sharp light that’s been running out of these days
My heart’s beating like it’s been poisoned by your embrace
Don’t know what I want
Don’t know what I’ll need tomorrow
Don’t know any stranger in your face

‘Cause I’m breathing the light
And I’m hiding the cries
I’m turning the world again
Like a broken song playing on and on
In my mind
That runs down the sky
Running down the wall like a lover’s call
In my mind

Visibility burns me

My soul sister of another disguise
Of another tonight
My soul sister of a second disguise
Let me drown in your light

Visibility burns me
Visibility turns me

And I’m breathing the light
And I’m hiding the cries
I’m turning the world again
Like a broken song playing on and on
In my mind
That runs down the sky
Running down the wall like a lover’s call
In my mind

Visibility burns me
Visibility turns me

The sharp needle of a hand mirror light
Of a whisper that cries
My heart’s beating like it’s run out of light
Like it’s breaking the sky
