Track Name: Reticence Cliff (single mix)
Indecision's led me astray
It's a struggle just to go the easy way
In transition...

Time has taken me far afield
Got my one-way ticket
Punched beneath the wheels
Of superstition...

Consider the shape of the interior
Formless in the face of my fear
In double vision,
The picture's becoming clear...

Consider the figure in the mirror
Shapeless as the sum of my fears
Blind to the future,
And numb to the passing years...

Stand at the edge of no tomorrow
It's taken a lifetime just to breathe
