Lines in the sand washed away
A blurry shading of your face
Is all that remains in my mind
Souvenir of another time

I’ve seen this place before
Standing at the intersection
Of a dream and a memory

Pieces of time swirl around
Snow falling on a frozen pond

Melts in my hand and drops away
Leaving nothing but a trace

Of what came before
But I can not go back to
It’s a dream and a memory

It feels like I am running a race
Against a river at a raging pace
Across the finish line is a trace
Of what we had

But you can’t ever win a race
Against a river at a raging pace
There is no finish line
This race is all we have

Late summer’s day, abandoned farm
A waterwheel without a stream to spin

Was your favorite place when you were small
You took me there when we were jumping in

That was just before the innocence was shattered
Into a dream and a memory

The mellower acoustic sound of the band’s earlier work has been replaced by louder guitars, harder hitting drums, and a broader sonic pallette. ... more
