Track Name: Floodgate
Come sit beside me
there's something I want you to know
So before you give up entirely
please
try to understand
I'm not like the other girls out there
and I come from a world where my heart
has been shattered to pieces
I'm not open to many people
You want to test my waters
go and open the dam.
because I gave you the key
it's in your hand
Please don't judge me
for you have not tried
all of the keys
which I gave you
they are in your hands
Please don't judge me
for you have not tried
all of the keys
which I gave you
they are in your hands
When you look at me
deep in me
I don't have to say a word
Track Name: Apparition
The night always falls much too fast
and as I part
the shadow starts to dance
inside my head and heart
each time when we wane and wax
when we're apart
this yearning doesn't ever go away
I've counted all the days
since I felt this way

you're strange
and you haunt me
you're strange
and you haunt me

distant signs and clues
always lead me back to you
and I awake
and your ghost
whispers to me...
you're strange
and you haunt me
you're strange
and you haunt me

the stars fills the blackness
and the void of the light
and they fall
fall
fall
all around us

we watch the sun surrender to the night

you're strange
and you haunt me
Track Name: Barricade
Through unfamiliar streets we roamed,
miles away from home.
The conjunction of the dusk.
We're joined in wanderlust.
We watched the harvest moon rise over the skyline,
as silently we walked through the night,
like ghosts.
Black and white.

I can see the fear in your eyes,
it is the fear that's in mine.
Why don't we break down the walls and step over the divide?

And in those fleeting hours, the words I want to say don't get said.
I'm terrified to speak, words just echo in my head.

Look in my eyes eclipsed, and kiss the secrets from my lips.See right through this masquerade and open up the barricade. The barricade. Open up this barricade.

That night we sat and watched the moon lighting up the room, before I fell to slumber in our rhymes of an hour,of an hour.

And there are many stars, but as beautiful as they may shine,there's only one I wish upon, and wish was mine.
Track Name: Perseids
intrumental
Track Name: The Convalescent
I let myself sink
break with the waves
washed the static
in its white noise
cast the line
to the deepest depth
I will wait
and hold it my dying breath

I was nearly drowning
felt it crushing me
the convalescence
of the deep blue sea
in the water
fathoms over me
the convalescence
of the deep blue sea

one for sorrow
but seven couldn't hold
as eight was the wish
the only one was told
throwing wish stones
to the turning sea
as the sun sinks in to the depths
of night's eternity

I was nearly drowning
felt it crushing me
the convalescence
of the deep blue sea
in the water
fathoms over me
the convalescence
of the deep blue sea
Track Name: Interim
Watch the time pass by
when you're not by my side
you know know that I understand
and time it shifts like sand

I'm waiting
I'm waiting
for the day
I'm waiting for the day

I'm waiting
I'm waiting
for the day
I'm waiting for the day

How far have I come?
I can't let the one
slip away
Wrapped inside my heart
when we are apart
and spring will rise
and we'll be.

I'm waiting
I'm waiting
for the day
I'm waiting for the day

I'm waiting
I'm waiting
for the day
I'm waiting for the day

I watch the time pass by
when you're not by my side
waiting for the day
waiting for the day

Sometimes words
just can't describe the thoughts
that I keep inside
waiting

You know I understand
as time it shifts like sand
this love I feel
inside of me
resonates a frequency

I watch the time pass by
when you're not by my side
you're wrapped inside my heart
when we are apart
and spring will
soon
rise
and
we
can
be

be

Track Name: Paper Tiger
Just like a paper tiger
Torn apart by idle hands
Through the helter skelter morning
Fix yourself while you still can
No more ashes to ashes
No more cinders from the sky
All the laws of creation
Tell a dead man how to die


O deserts down below us
And storms up above
Like a stray dog gone defective
Like a paper tiger in the sun

Looking through a broken diamond
To make the past what it should be
Through the ruins and the weather
Capsized boats in the sea


We're just holding on to nothing
To see how long nothing lasts


There's one road to tomorrow
There's one road to the truth
There's one road back to civilization
But there's no road back to you
Track Name: October Sun
October sun
behind the hills
it's on fire
in the indigo heaven

It's getting colder now
so we walk
our blood will keep us warm

Our shadows standing side by side
and everything is good tonight
and we're just putting the world to rights
and I'll drink to that I'll drink to that

The bright lights are calling us
so we retreat
through streets of amber
sirens singing lullabies
Track Name: Sentience
In the after-hours you questioned my intent and inclination.
At the platform in the station I made my declaration.
Words are just a vesture when my love is in the gesture.

And we understand, I know there's things that we will never be.
And as seasons pass this love grows deeper deep inside of me.

And the morning creeps on us, embraced in winter's light
and we are ghosts in sentience, concealed in linen white.
It's time again to depart, but a piece of you always remains and haunts my heart.

And the master plan is written in the city sky tonight.
And the heavens hold the answers to the plan I must devise.

When nature starts to turn, homeward bound is the intention,
and side by side we'll stand, in a place of liberation.
Track Name: This Must Be Place
Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me around
I feel numb, born with a weak heart
I guess I must be having fun

The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground, head in the sky
It's okay, I know nothing's wrong, nothing

Oh! I got plenty of time
Oh! You got light in your eyes
And you're standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Never for money, always for love
Cover up and say goodnight, say goodnight

Home, is where I want to be
But I'm not I'm not there
But I'll come home, he'll life up his wings
I guess that this must be the place

I can't tell one from the other
I find you, or you find me?
There was a time before we were born
If someone asks, this is where I'll be, where I'll be oh!

We drift in and out
Oh! Sing into my mouth
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view

I'm just an animal looking for a home and
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I'm dead

Eyes that light up
Eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head I got ooh!
