Track Name: Through The Veil

Thinking in moments instead of living them through
Choosing when to act unlike you
Carefully deliberating for moments so sublime
In your eyes I waste so much time

Hold back
Think about it
Wait for your cue
(While the rest of life waits not for them nor you)

Looking through the veil
Protecting us from what may lie beyond
We’re not like you
We don’t think we do
People of action we are whilst you judge from afar

Feeling despair but being drawn to you
Constant conflict drags me through
Your way, ‘embrace all you can before you die'
I agree with your sentiment but can’t help asking why

Do you want to see on the other side
Or stay in comfort the veil will provide?
Track Name: Tripartite

To love you, honour and obey
Strikes the core of fallibility
Three ideas subsumed by one archaic ritual
Venerated as strong

Saying vows and pledging selves
To live forever forsaking what logic expels
Living through unpleasant days
To reach the summit where happiness soon fades

Particulars will try,
Binding minds to life itself
Love if left to breathe,
Will bring with it a moments release

When loving you is all I want to do
People always strive
Trying to define what I am feeling inside

Love can stand by itself
It does not need the power of three
When love finds love
When moments pass
We constrain it with fidelity

Love if left to breathe
Respecting how the moment could be
But when love finds love
When moments pass
We constrain it with fidelity
