Track Name: Sun Soaked Horizon
Afraid to listen are you lost in your familiar place oh you see, so contented
And in the twilight are you waiting for your curtain call with a face to the wall
I try to temper all the fantasies that whisk you away but chain the cold floor beneath you
A certain feeling lurks beneath the smiles and sultry stares
Let’s just leave these ruins and talk together Boundless fields of rage and guilt to climb
And I would rest this plague for calmer weather now I’m painting a corpse beneath the
sun soaked horizon
What do you crave beneath the sun soaked horizon And I remember as we sat amongst the autumn leaves beneath the stone cold horizon
Afraid to whisper as the urgency of sanity emancipates me
Let’s just leave these ruins and talk together Boundless fields of rage and guilt to climb
And I would rest this plague for calmer weather now
Track Name: Mystery To Hide
A wayward storm collects the night and shadow overwhelms the cause I wonder what they see on higher ground
Trajectories set for way off lands but no one
ever really knows
Where we’re coming from or choose to see
In the moment with a fortress inside a mystery for you to hide
Will it ever come and salvage your bones, a conquest or empty life
An understated love is your end
A place to mend a wounded mind was never really there to buy I wonder what they see on higher
ground
A thought that leads to endless roads but no one ever really knows
Where we’re going to, or choose to be
In the moment with a fortress inside a mystery
for you to hide
Will it ever come and salvage your bones, a conquest or empty life
An understated love is your end
A wayward storm collects the night and shadow
overwhelms the cause I wonder what they see on higher ground
In the moment with a fortress inside a mystery for you to hide
Will it ever come and salvage your bones, a conquest or empty life An understated love is your end
Track Name: Throwing Stones
It’s up for the taking but I found a prison cell
And I heard a whisper but I want a sentence
If you weren’t so black now I would mistaken this
The sake of a hand shake and closing the distance
So throw stones everybody could tell its hard when
your mindset’s been dragging to hell I’ll phase into focus the ring of a bell
So it’s a fine line a balance of innocence
Wait for the fresh air with stains from a
cigarette
Alone when you sleep now with crowds in the distance
Knives to the back with the smiles of a gentleman
So throw stones everybody could tell its hard when
your mindset’s been dragging to hell I’ll phase into focus the ring of a bell
Enough of the quagmire and time for the jail break
I’ll play to the kill screen but lose on the sentiment Justice was relayed in files that are faded
And still in the background are critics and traitors
So throw stones everybody could tell its hard when yourmindset’s been dragging to hell I’ll phase into focus the ring of a bell
Track Name: Leave It All Behind
Why so over complicated
Rising tides and suffocating news
Past editions overloaded
Future plans and weeded out half truths
Well look at the scenes out at the city fires
Oh you’re looking for fruit only to be fed like swine
Oh taking it back over the summer time I hope nobody knows and leaves it all behind
And I just want to understand the righteous laws of rabid dogs and man
It’s the seed you plant for sorrow when your hearts are braced for golden lands
Well look at the scenes out at the city fires
Oh you’re looking for fruit only to be fed like swine
Oh taking it back over the summer time I hope nobody knows and leaves it all behind
Oh its you no don’t you tell me other wise oh don’t you tell me twice Oh you’ll be swimming
Track Name: Into December
Darkness
Leave it alone it’s like a bad day working straight at your bones and I am waiting for comfort unknown into December
Moonlight
A scepter in space I’ve encountered worlds just look at your face and it’s a painting perfume or mace
into December
Believe it’s old romance to find Leaving your portraits behind
Take it in turns now in time
Temper
Fall out the boat I’ve resigned my wish lists for
feelings unknown and it’s a promise I’m walking alone into December
Into December
Into December
Into December
Into December
Track Name: Just Like The Others
Neutered gentile that never crawled out for the new day
A listless wonderer decided to stay
Pack your memories and other old robes a journey calls you
Your fleeting screenplay was never meant for trade Little stumbles lead to falls I never could answer for Just like the others around you just like the others around here
And on the sea shore a memory unfolds of a new day the unborn child remembers to play
And in the night time that never grows old terror holds you a single gesture renders you cold
Little stumbles lead to falls I never could answer for Just like the others around you just like the others around here
Neutered gentile that never crawled out for the new day
A listless wonderer decided to stay
Little stumbles lead to falls I never could answer for Just like the others around you just like the others
around here Just like the others around you just like the others around here
Track Name: Of A Setting Sun
Space reaches across a billion suns I shout it out loud an echo starts to reign
And this is earth
Now that you’ve built your endless roads I found a dark cloud
That speaks from a million tongues
The warring jewels and fateful fantasies get burnt
in the summer sun
The sacred calls and empty screams are cued
I don’t doubt that the walls will crumble and eagles claw and a sheik
A fateful choice as a sick man stumbles
An empty glass of relief
Riding on the magic waves of a setting sun
A phase for the ones to become
A page from an ancient region
Let it run
Crossed out to a world of endless pain I shout it out loud this victim takes the blame
Each to his own a moment in time can change the course of victory unsung that speaks from a million tongues
The warring jewels and fateful fantasies get burnt
in the summer sun
The sacred calls and empty screams are cued I don’t doubt that the walls will crumble and eagles claw and a sheik
A fateful choice as a sick man stumbles
An empty glass of relief Riding on the magic waves of a setting sun
A phase for the ones to become
A page from an ancient region
Let it run let it run
Track Name: Beautiful Pantomime
Endlessly I take it to the breadth of me
I'm soaring through a grey tinged dream
I let it soak.
I hope to last and make the graduation dance if only to enhance this grin and set in stone.
Hard to find a beautiful pantomime
Set the scene to sit up and write the line
All at once to go with a longing to find
A bigger piece of your mind
All good men are products of a gentle friend a favour from the gods they said
a woman knows.
A tale to tell a flower and a white sea shell the silence
and an old church bell sweet company
Hard to find a beautiful pantomime
Set the scene to sit up and write the line
All at once to go with a longing to find
A bigger piece of your mind
And we find a bigger piece of your mind
Hard to find a beautiful pantomime
Set the scene to sit up and write the line
All at once to go with a longing to find
A bigger piece of your mind
And we find a bigger piece of your mind
A bigger piece
A bigger piece of your mind.
Track Name: If Your Love Is Blind
Let me down slow I’m starting to spin like a furnace from the sky wherever you've been and I know I must contend with this force that lurks in every bin
Jewels from the soul come complementary I can walk into the edge of democracy can you tell me what to do with the noose that hangs so comfortably
And if your love is blind and there’s peace of mind
A season walks in time
A friendly tree to climb
Stand up and listen to me
Victims to the west and demons the east a colliding
majesty with war as her beast I can hardly understand the cold words that crawl from pages of scripts
Suped-up let loose fallen to shit the intentions of a man with nowhere to slip can the fairytale end with these words I tried so heard to believe
And if your love is blind and there’s peace of mind
A season walks in time A friendly tree to climb
Stand up and listen to me
Track Name: Searchlights
For every man and child there’s a raft that’s floating out to sea
An island in the sun was always part of your inherent chemistry
Rain undercover and the light that’s like no other Huddle round the fire and the fear will have it smothered
Fumble in the night but the time is always right for you Creatures of the night were never part of the initial tapestry
We would always add to things that never
had the need but now you see
Rain undercover and the light that’s like no other
Huddle round the fire and the fear will have it smothered
Fumble in the night but the time is always right for you And let me tell you now Why don’t you write it
for me
It’s the story of a mad man’s saving grace
And all the cut throat glory
With the undercover jury filled with hate
And the searchlights are slowing and its
high time you’re knowing and the searchlights
For every man and child there’s a raft that’s floating out to sea
An island in the sun was always part of your
inherent chemistry
Rain undercover and the light that’s like no other Huddle round the fire and the fear will have it smothered
Fumble in the night but the time is always right for you And let me tell you now
Why don’t you write it for me
It’s the story of a mad man’s saving grace
And all the cut throat glory With the undercover jury filled with hate
And the searchlights are slowing and it high time
you’re knowing and the searchlights and the searchlights
Track Name: Isolation
Calling out isolation
Trading off all forward direction
Through the doorway lays a mirror
Containing all your past and future
Calling out indecision
Claiming all your forward direction
Through the doorway lays a mirror
Containing all your past and future
Across the sea a changing tide for those you’ve lost and cast aside
A spoken word a moment spent
The days you lived
And tears you wept
Calling out isolation
Calling out isolation
Track Name: Runaway
Inside
Fading atmosphere with an empty view
A page with nothing more than a lie a threat and a fine for all your yester years
Once I could hold a crowd with a tale of youth
Shake a hand with all that is near a family in fear yet freedom walks the lane
Tonight I don’t look back and I could taste the freedom in your lap
Runaway it’s the chemistry you say
And so
Many days have come to pass when all that was
right came flooding in time for your expected birth
And now I insist we take the plunge I never knew that thoughts could ensue your bleak reality
Tonight I don’t look back I could taste the freedom in your lap
Runaway it’s the chemistry you say
Darling tonight a one way track and I could taste the freedom in your lap
Runaway it’s the chemistry you say
Bright lights fortune fame and money won’t stop the aging faces coming set sail and float somewhere Tonight I don’t look back I could taste the freedom in your lap
Runaway it’s the chemistry you say
Darling tonight a one way track and I could taste the freedom in your lap
Runaway it’s the chemistry you say
Track Name: Fire Away
It starts with waves of fear and memories so cold
A place in your heart a dungeon in chains
A danger you’ll never know
Watchtowers are here to stay as wolves enter town
A shield you have lost and claimed at a cost
A price you will never know
They'll start crying
Hard to take hard to know
Deep inside let it go
All’s well that ends well in tidal waves
Hard to say when you sigh
Never tamed and you tried
All’s well that ends well in tidal waves
A sense of justice dwells in murderers shoes
A cunning disguise you tried to deny but dwells in the heart of you
It’s fair to say to this that blindness is bliss
A hole in the road distractions in vogue a cliff face in
front of you
They'll start crying
Hard to take hard to know
Deep inside let it go
All’s well that ends well in tidal waves
Hard to say when you sigh
Never tamed and you tried
All’s well that ends well in tidal waves
They'll start crying
Hard to take hard to know deep inside let it go
All’s well that ends well in tidal waves
Hard to say when you sigh
Never tamed and you tried
All’s well that ends well in tidal waves
