Track Name: Reality (Is This Real)
On a bookshelf in a secret room
 there’s a knight there

between the dust and debris
 my soul sits comfortably

In the midst there’s a castle 

dragons lurk in the dark

my Prince calls for his army

this war is about to start

Is this real

or is this reality just a dream

my nightmare for eternity

is this real or is it a dream
 please darling won’t you love me

Fire’s burning outside my window

warriors dance in the dark

my prince releases an arrow

and now it’s pierced my heart

Is this real

or is this reality just a dream

my nightmare for eternity

is this real or is it a dream
 please darling won’t you love me

And I’ll shatter as it falls

the rocks crumble and I’m torn

I’ll close my eyes and slip away
 and you’ll think that I’m gone

Is this real

or is this reality just a dream
 my nightmare for eternity

is this real or is it a dream
 please darling won’t you love
Track Name: Only One
Honey, let’s take a walk
through the parklands where we used to listen to birds talk
I need to tell you through and through
don’t think i wouldn’t find out, I know the things that you do

I’ve had my doubts right from the start
little thoughts in my head telling me not to give you my heart
but you took it, added to your collection
that you don’t return, and it hurts so much it burns

I’m not the only one that you lend your time to
I shielded my eyes from the sun wishing it wasn’t true

Look at the birds, the pigeons they stay together, forever
I want to wake up by your side
without the fear in your eyes that I will recognise

I’m not the only one that you lend your time to
I shielded my eyes from the sun wishing it wasn’t true

I might release to the world that you're a fraud
I had to blink twice to understand all that I saw

I’m not the only one that you lend your time to
I shielded my eyes from the sun wishing it wasn’t true
Track Name: What Was I To You?
You’re a loud noise in my mind preventing my sleep at night
staring at the ceiling deep in thought
do you think about me?
are you thinking of me now?

What was I to you?
mixed you for someone I thought I knew
you came, you left
am I another regret?
oh what, what was I to you?
thought we had something special
you’re just superficial

You fooled me good this time
got me believing your little lies
you loved my body but not my mind
I just have to say, do you even have a heart

What was I to you?
mixed you for someone I thought I knew
you came, you left
am I another regret?
oh what, what was I to you?
thought we had something special
you’re just superficial

I stayed up late reading the same things ten times over
with the usual ten things going round and round my head
over and over and over again
over and over and over again

What was I to you?
mixed you for someone I thought I knew
you came, you left
am I another regret?
oh what, what was I to you?
thought we had something special
you’re just superficial

You're a loud noise in my mind
preventing my sleep at night
Track Name: Tree
The lonely tree, a lonely tree
 the only tree in the meadow
it sways in the wind, it dances
 to the lonely song of the meadow

There is a girl, a lonely girl
 beneath the tree in the meadow
you can hear her sing, you can hear your sing
 the lonely song of the meadow

Oh, she calls for an angel of the lord

Oh, demons were the only ones that heard
 And now she sings herself to sleep

gently caressing the solitary tree 

with lonely melodies

The moon glows, the moon glows
 down upon the meadow
she walked away, she walked away
 the only way she knows

Oh, she calls for an angel of the lord

Oh, demons were the only ones that heard
 And now she sings herself to sleep

gently caressing the solitary tree 

with lonely melodies
Track Name: Telescope
I once went to the sea
 asked it of my destiny

to which it could not tell me
 so it taught me this melody

Oh, through my telescope
 I saw your boat

you sailed the ocean blue
 and that’s when I knew

One, two, three, come with me
 through the forest of histories

we can go dancing

listen; the song of the trees

Oh, through my telescope
 I saw your boat

you sailed the ocean blue
 and that’s when I knew
