Track Name: The How and the Why
I waited for the right time for you and me to be reacquainted
Restless, sort of lost, ready to turn the needle around on the compass
and I'm ready to resolve the mess that we made in our rush to

I waited for what felt like too long I'd forgotten the reasons why we separated without knowing it was the right thing forgetting the how and the how and the why is what we needed

So now we're ready to move on from the fear and pain that held us down and isolated

The wound is never as bad as you'd first imagined
the wound is never as bad once you look at it first hand
the wound is never as bad once you have cleaned it
the wound is never as bad once you have forgiven
Track Name: Simpleton
I once read a poem that said to me the child is father to the man what could it mean
The soul raises the man raises the ghost the trinity
The grape turns from the wine into the blood all over time
A tree chopped down to wood shaped to a boat, cast out to sea

But it don't matter none to me, I'm a simple boy you see, it didn't mean nothing to me, I was a simpleton

I then read a book at was said to be evil and depraved writ by a mage
it claimed every thought's a prayer and every word's a spell, so I use them well

Now I've opened my eyes wide to see, it's simple spell really
Now they all listen to me, I'm an initiate

What we don't know we don't show
but we don't know what we don't know
we don't know what we don't know
we don't what we don't know
