Before The Flood

Inside your head, outside the mess

Inside your head, outside the mess

There’s only time, to give it up

There’s only time

I owe it all to you

I owe it all to you

I owe it all to you

This time


Moving on, before the cross

Moving on

I owe it all to you

I owe it all to you

I owe it all to you

This time


We’ve all got pain, she stands on the first floor above the roses

I have a tape glass in my hand and this motion is going round and round

Time stands in a shroud of pain and this radiating race starts falling

Into the third phase of the flood, she breaks away as she breaks down

She breaks down

 

 

Harvest

Take the time that you need

To relieve your mind

Trust the stars

Trust the stars

Trust in yourself

Interpret the dreams

That you travel beneath

Bridge the skies

Bridge the signs

Back to your strength

It would not be the first time

To leave the past behind

It would not be the first time

Harvest it, undress

Undress

Undress

All confessions of love

Of confusion, of loss

Weave them into the night

Just let them breathe

The Madonna appears

To guide you away

It is love, it is love

In which you must depend

It would not be the first time

To leave the past behind

It would not be the first time

Harvest it, undress

Undress

Undress

I must feel

I must feel, to believe

You must feel

You must feel, to believe

 

 

The Art Of Revolution


As light enters a wound

Life guilds all remains of darkness

Love reigns through and through

Yielding strength from which true change is born

It’s the overgrown question we forget to address with our hearts

It’s in the beauty that lifts from a vision

It’s the root of suffering

Freedom may not be torn like a petal from a rose

We’re all fugitives, of time, of land, of scope

It’s fundamental that you and I, fight for the dream of hope

History on a wheel

The compass like the instincts of a bird

The Art of Revolution, the palate of the angels

Its the voices that aren’t heard

It’s the overgrown question we forget to address with our hearts

It’s in the beauty that lifts from a vision

It’s the root of suffering

Freedom may not be torn like a petal from a rose

We’re all fugitives, of time, of land, of scope

It’s fundamental that you and I, fight for the dream of hope

Unite

Unite

Unite

 

 

The Sky Holds Our Years

Ignite the sounds of falling

Talk to me in the steel blue light

I forget the smell of darkness

Distract my hands, Like magnets on the side

Your eyes

Your eyes

Your eyes

They speak through glass

They speak for change

But your brother skates on ice

We fold away, dissolving into pine

Hills speak for change

But your brother skates on ice

We fold away, dissolving into pine

The sky holds our years

And turns them into light

Inside the car my head is clear

To take apart the land and sink it down

Your eyes

Your eyes

Your eyes

They speak through glass

They speak for change

But your brother skates on ice

We fold away, dissolving into pine

Hills speak for change

But your brother skates on ice

We fold away, dissolving into pine

Your eyes

Your eyes

Our lives pass over

All the places we have loved

 

 

Take Me In

Birds eye view

One last sail into the vastness

Before it all fades

To one resolve

Looking back

Who’s reality would that be

In the end it’s all perspective

In the end it’s the weight of the soul

Take me in

Take me in

Peripheral blue

The sacred rite of passage

Towards the light beyond the window

Towards the final rose

Held by one river on the edge of a darkness

This is alchemy

This is the final resolve

To be taken in

Take me in

To be taken in

Take me in

 

 

De Profundis

Passing yourself in the rain

Flowers cinder, like a moth to midnights’ flame

Passion is love, rising from the root of pain

Those silver lines

Turn instincts into sight

As you raise yourself from the rivers depths

Sorrow my dear is the sweetest wine

If you understand its beauty, you’ll understand its price

You say you want to be free

Those silver lines

Turn instincts into sight

As you raise yourself from the rivers depths

I’ve been here before

I’ve been here before

I’ve been here before

Sorrow my dear is the sweetest wine

If you understand its beauty, you’ll understand its price

You say you want to be free

Tear yourself from the womb that feeds the hollow seed

Deliver yourself, Oh deliver yourself

Deliver yourself, Oh deliver yourself

To the mouth of Christ for which you wait

To realms of life you wish to wed

Only you can deliver yourself

Only you can deliver yourself

 

 

Blue Requiem

Oh I know the feeling, in the shadows of the heart

When deaths’ many faces have torn you apart

Oh these blues have ambushed me, far too many times

And now deaths’ foolish friend is no friend of mine

Well the night’s taught me its paces

And now I’m on the road

To my, my trials and tribulations

On my own

And now I’m walking down empty streets

With the blues like oceans in my hands

And now I’m walking down empty streets

With the blues like oceans in my hands

Oh I, I pin my prayers to the mountaintops of trees

And hold on to my soul as it leaves

And I help my time, to be where it should be

Like the golden child running through the very bones of me

Oh I was shot down by times bullet

And now I’m on my knees

But my friends they help me when I get weak

When I am weak

And now I’m walking down empty streets

With the blues like oceans in my hands

And now I’m walking down empty streets

With the blues like oceans in my hands

And now I’m walking down empty streets

With the blues like oceans in my hands

And now I’m walking down empty streets

With the blues like oceans in my hands

 

 

I’ll Keep You With Me

Time preserves itself in each of us

The cycle of our stars will eventually turn to dust

Only a fool can be reclaimed by day

In the signs, in our dreams, we know our fate

Remember what he told you

When life throws down its hardest cards, you must never compromise

Remember what he showed you

When pain does rise, the ancient light will see you through

It will see you through

Rise up from your inhibitions

While you're numb, the whole world revolves outside

Rise up from your hearts inflictions

While you’re numb, it expands beyond the tide

Against all odds, you must move forwards

Keep on searching, but never give up giving

Remember what he told you

When life throws down its hardest cards, you must never compromise

Remember what he showed you

When pain does rise, the ancient light will see you through

It will see you through

I’ll keep you with me

I’ll keep you with me

I’ll keep you with me

In this strange love

In this strange love

 

 

Beneath The Ice

Walking in the rain

How the best they fade with age

Like a flower left to die

This old friend of pain, has come

From a distance

The shadows come

To sit around his head

And the grey ink floods

Into the pit of my deepest chest

-

The smoke it rises

To the furthest stars

Your face, it’s frozen

We can only recall what’s past

To feel, to step again Beneath the ice

To feel, I step again Beneath the ice

 

 

The Lightness Of Being

At night when she moves through the valleys

The weight lifts from the reservoir floor

The dial it is fixed in the distance

In directions she’ll be carried in death

Peeling gold

In winters’ witness

Burning visions are lain to rest

He plows up the earth into straight lines

Dreaming the old oak would fall to the lawn

He arches his limbs like the horses

That race through the orchards at autumns’ dawn

Lifting forwards

Over fields

Lightness of being is all that’s left

It’s the same for he as she

Love remains from the weight of a dream

It’s the same for she as he

Love changes the course of a history

Silence

Stillness in mass

Stillness in mass
