Track Name: Incubate
Miscalculate when they
would separate you and me.
Summer of ninety-one,
premature I couldn't wait another day.
Incubate me.

Mother do I make you proud?
Do I give you something to smile about?
Am I your pride and joy?
I hope all always be your little boy.

You chose me over your own heart beat.
I was an intruder inside you devouring everything
you were the first to hold me and the last to let me go.

My keeper you were all of my happiness and pain.
My keeper I will greatly fear the day they take you away from this horrible place.
my keeper
You'd skin your back to keep me warm, is this something children long for?
Track Name: Geoff
You never took your eyes off of me, it dug into my chest.
throw myself on the floor, vacate whats left.
Vacate whats left.

Please don't go
this place is just not the same without you.
without you.

He struggled to breathe and with his last words he said to me.
He said to me, take care.
Track Name: Misbegotten
I was born a sin; I'll die a sin.
I thank you for passing on the cold blood running through my veins, it's the same traits that you portray.
Cause I'm every outline of you.
Cause I'm every outline of you.

Father of mine where have you gone?
You left a family stranded, a confused child, a single mom.
A single mom.

No need to apologize, I know it's not your fault.
You're gone for a special reason.
I lie awake thinking to myself was it to split us apart.

Now every year when summer comes around am I on your mind?
Cause you're all I think about.
I'll sew my eyes shut and wait until the day when we will meet then I can finally say I've grown proud and oh so strong of the man that I have become.

Father of mine where have you gone?
You left a family stranded, a confused child, a single mom is fine.
She gave me all her love and all I can do is smile because I know I'll be there for my son.
I know I'll be there for my son.
I know I'll be there for my son.
Track Name: Daughters
There's a hole in the wall.

Prayer can't help you now.
You hear the children crying out your name, your name.

As it widens it swallows this house whole and I can't help but think it's out of my control, it's out of my control.

She doesn't even know your name anymore.
You're both just strangers living in the same corridor.

There's a hole in the wall.
The sun escapes from the sky and birth is given to the night.
To the night.
There's a hole in the wall.
