Track Name: ORPHAN - medicide lullaby
let go, old fellow,
stars beneath your feet now.
meds responsive,
body absconded,
glory a grain in the sand of time.
let go, old fellow, let go.
Track Name: ORPHAN - clockworks
men, gear.
sum, heart.
work fast,
stay numb.
bones burst,
skins scratch,
clockworks tick,
bodies rest.
we don’t leave traces
in the body of the machine.
Track Name: Spirit Desire - witching hour
Ask myself how to fall asleep.

TV's off, just the moon lights up my room.

Silhouettes are dancing around my bed

The wind is whispering my name

Lights go on
Lights go out

Shadow play at witching hour and though I'm bored

Late night mist
I'm flirting with a dream

3am, sulphur smell

Track Name: Spirit Desire - lean
You have occupied my head

No matter what I do I just can't get rid of your ghost

I wish I could breath you out

Just like the smoke which fills up my lungs

Lean back and fade

Caught myself again thinking about things I cannot have

A waste of time you won't be mine

And still I can't let go
