about

Dreamscape I/XI:

Soon after I left the island of Seclusion on my small rowboat, I traveled across the sea. During this time, I met a boy named Philip who I got attached to and fell in love with. Only, we were both looking for the same thing in two different directions, so had to part after days and days of love and friendship.

Track Name: Found
I pushed off from the shore and found
a boy inside a boat unbound
I never thought I’d meet another
One to love more than a brother

His eyes were blue and green
were staring right inside of me
I looked back at his and knew this would
be forever, I knew we would

With our hands held tight
and without a fight
we float onward
to the end of the earth
to the end of the sea
we’ll go and go
oh, we’ll go and go

As the waves crest and bend
we tell our lives to each other and
we have more in common
than I could have imagined
we survived our cons

As the waves crest and bend
I’ll hold you to the end
you’ll hold me to the end
from land to land

I never knew it would be this way
With love shining bright
like the stars in the sky
no fear is here
oh, no fear is here

With our hands held tight
and without a fight
we float onward
to the end of the earth
to the end of the sea
we’ll go and go

With our hands held tight
and without a fight
we float onward
to the end of the earth
to the end of the sea
we’ll go and go
oh, we’ll go and go

I pushed off from the shore and found
a boy inside a boat unbound
Track Name: Bodies
With our vessels tied up
and our bodies put down
Our minds unlocked
and life became bright

With our hearts interweaving
and our souls lit up
and we won’t give up

Lips are meeting
hands are gripping
muscles tensing
we connect
Lips are meeting
hands are gripping
muscles tensing
we’re in love

We feel each other’s skin
kissing
caressing
intimate

We love each other’s bodies
kissing
caressing
intimate

Lips are meeting
hands are gripping
muscles tensing
we connect
Lips are meeting
hands are gripping
muscles tensing
we’re in love

The ocean waves are guiding us
Our hands all over each other
we’re together
you’re my lover
You’re my love until time fades away

you’re my lover
You’re my love until time fades away

we’re together
you’re my lover
You’re my love until time fades away

we’re together
you’re my lover
you’re my anchor
You’re my love until time fades away

With our hearts interweaving
and our souls light up
and we won’t give up

Lips are meeting
hands are gripping
muscles tensing
we connect
Lips are meeting
hands are gripping
muscles tensing
we’re in love
Track Name: Within
I took you within my arms
and held you so tight
I took you inside
my heart

I listened to you
and your history
you held me tight
and consoled me

You made me wish that
there was no time
or ending
we helped one another
through our mending

When we needed love, oh
we needed love, oh oh oh

While I clung on to you
I wept
From the storm in my head
failed friendships

and you wiped my tears away
released me from my dark days

You made me wish that
there was no time
or ending
we helped one another
through our mending

You made me wish that
there was no time
or ending
we helped one another
through our mending

You made me wish that
there was no time
or ending
we helped one another
through our mending
through our mending
Track Name: Innamorato
As we float
upon the Wandering Sea
our boats tied together
it’s only you and me
it’s only you and I
until the end of time

We don’t
need anyone else
to be happy now
to be alright
for once

All we need is love
and we need nothing more
deep inside our cores
All we need is love
and we need nothing more
deep inside our cores
it’s how we start again
it’s how we live again

Love
it spins the earth and stars
the Universe is ours
and we sail outside of time
yeah, you are mine
and I’m yours

And until now
I couldn’t see the stars
I was so blind
in the dark of that island
which I don’t care to recall

It’s in the past
and I know we’ll last

All we need is love
and we need nothing more
deep inside our cores
All we need is love
and we need nothing more
deep inside our cores
it’s how we start again
it’s how we live again

All we need is love
and we need nothing more
deep inside our cores
All we need is love
and we need nothing more
deep inside our cores
it’s how we start again
it’s how we live again
it’s how we start again
it’s how we live again
Track Name: Interflow
{a storm comes and rips us away from one another}
Track Name: Démis
the sea took you from me
but you’re not coming back
and now I finally see

That you never loved
You never loved me
No matter what you told me before
even if I never reach the shore

I was misguided
led astray by love and by you
There’s no hate here
just all of my fear

I will be alone
There’s nothing you can do to atone

Oh, you never loved
You never loved me
No matter what you told me before
even if I never reach the shore

I just want this to end
the pain and the loss
they all make me feel so dead

I will be alone
There’s nothing you can do to atone
But why did you do this
oh why did you
destroy
my heart

You left
on your vessel
and left me
oh left me to rot all alone

Oh, you never loved
You never loved me
No matter what you told me before
even if I never reach the shore

and now I finally see

That you never loved
You never loved me
No matter what you told me before
even if I never reach the shore
I was misguided by you.
Track Name: Apart
So now you’re gone
forevermore
And I’m alone
dead in my core
There’s nothing
that I can do
I know this I can’t undo

You are not
coming back again
I will never be home or mend
again
Screaming against the ocean’s roar
I just can’t feel things anymore

I’m reminded of that place
I wish I could erase from time and space
where I was in grey mists alone
and I’d do nothing but cry and moan

I will be alone forever
and rot within my anger

You are not
coming back again
I will never be home or mend
again
Screaming against the ocean’s roar
I just can’t feel things anymore

Isolation
is my fate
In the dark
I will wait

‘Cause now you’re gone
I’m reminded of Seclusion
Isolation
Dead in my core
I’m in the ocean alone
alone
alone

I will be alone forever
and rot within my anger

You are not
coming back again
I will never be home or mend
again
Screaming against the ocean’s roar
I just can’t feel things anymore

Isolation
is my fate
In the dark
I will wait

You are not
coming back again
I will never be home or mend
again
Screaming against the ocean’s roar
I just can’t feel things anymore

I will be alone forever
and rot within my anger
Track Name: Release (to Philip)
You were once brave,

alive in the summer. 

You had your boy

when you weren’t my brother.

And he loved you back,

or so you did think then,

until you discovered 
his dark, dark 

heartless endeavors.

He lied to you, 

cut you so cruel, 

and you’re still licking your wounds. 

He sliced you deep,

left your heart on the street 

as you wept and wept.

And then he just left.

Your body aches

and your mind mistakes 

love for casuality.

But, I don’t blame you 

for any pain you have caused.

It was his fault, 

for he broke you down.

He lied to you, 

cut you so cruel,

and you’re still licking your wounds.

He sliced you deep,

left your heart on the street 

as you wept and wept. 

And then he just left.

You can breathe again, 

you can breathe. 

You can feel again,

reach out and feel again.

You can love again, 

You can let Cody go,

and live again.

Track Name: Lost
Now that I’ve 

let

you

go

We can move 

on

our

own

Working towards

happiness

I wish you the

very

best



But I’m just so lost now

I’d go on my way

but I just don’t know how

or where

to set

my course

I still have some remorse

for letting you go

I just have to move on

I have to find hope

I have to just go


My heart is so

broken

down

Depression and

sadness

bound

Don’t know if I’ll

be 
okay

I’m sailing towards

some

new

day



But I’m just so lost now

I’d go on my way

but I just don’t know how

or where

to set

my course

I still have some remorse

for letting you go

I just have to move on

I have to find hope

I have to just go


There’s an island

on the horizon

of my dark ocean

the Wandering Sea

Will I be safe there?

Be loved and welcomed

Can I start over

and find a new lover?


But I’m just so lost now

I’d go on my way

but I just don’t know how

or where

to set

my course

I still have some remorse

for letting you go

I just have to move on

I have to find hope

I have to just go



But I'm just so lost now

I’d go on my way

but I just don’t know how


But I’m just so lost now

I’d go on my way

but I just don’t know how

or where

to set

my course

I still have some remorse

for letting you go

I just have to move on

I have to find hope

I have to just go
