Track Name: Embrace Not The Hand
You said you needed
The airy hand
To bind my mouth
All I have
Oh how hard
Oh how hard
Leave this world

O, Embrace not the hand
The dreams we had
The future really is beautiful

Drifting fast the wind she blows
On my cracked feet
Falling soft upon the earth
Nothing more, nothing’s open yet
Now is my time to say my final words

I planted dreams
That turned into madness
How do you dream?
And end up in sadness?
I tell you I have found
Sweet fire burning in your eyes
That turns to hope
And takes this last moment
To hold for the rest of your life

You turn the sun in a moment
Into a love power reflecting beam
For all our sakes
The sun will never be leaving in you

You said you needed the airy hand
To bide my mouth
All I have
O how hard
O how hard
Leave this world

Embrace not the hand
Embrace not the hand
Track Name: Who's To Blame
(Butterfly kisses)

I watch in horror as monolith towers
Devoured by powers that are
Not soon forgotten the image is brought in
To linger and rot in my brain

Who’s to blame?
(Butterfly kisses)
Jumping from windows engulfed by flames
(Butterfly kisses)
Who’s to blame?
Jumping from windows engulfed by flames
(Butterfly kisses)

Eskimo noses
Remembering our innocence

(Butterfly kisses)

I watch in horror as children
pull guns from their sleeves
Say goodbye to their little lives
And they never learn to say please

Eskimo noses
Remembering our innocence

I watch in horror as nature
Releases her power
Winds and rains and giant waves
Cities and families devoured

Who’s to blame?
(Butterfly kisses)
No one and nothing will be the same
(Butterfly kisses)
Who’s to blame?
No one and nothing will be the same
(Butterfly kisses)

Eskimo noses
Remembering our innocence
Track Name: Vision
Fading in and fading out of view
Trying to focus trying to see you
Blinded by light blinded by night
Failing of vision failing of sight

I can’t see your beauty
Just shadows in the light
But my ears can hear you screaming
like a beast in the night

Relying on touch
Relying on sound
Fingers wrapping around and around

Lost in the mist, hand on my wrist
Lead me on like a child

I can’t see your beauty
Just shadows in the light
But my ears hear you you screaming
like a beast in the night

Breathing in and breathing out
Reach from within, reaching out

Fading in and fading out of view
Trying to focus trying to see you
Blinded by light blinded by night
Failing of vision failing of sight

I can’t see your beauty
Just shadows in the light
But my ears hear you you screaming
like a beast in the night
Track Name: Falling Leaves
She fell from the stars, I see
Kind eyes, I must remember
That word she spoke
And turned the world aside

Held her in my slow regard
Her dress swirled like smile and fire
We shared a first last kiss
Under a moon that sighed

Follow me across the sea
Follow me under sinking sun
Follow me on the breeze
Follow me, follow me

He lips bright with restless words
I count her many facets
This time, for her
Just never seemed to fit

Her voice light as the wind
Now gone, follow roaming home
Tell them I left to find
My fiction divine

Follow me across the sea
Follow me under sinking sun
Follow me on the breeze
Follow me, follow me
(I’m so lonely, helps me to breathe)

Silence, pressed against the sky
How so, without the stars
To her, like the memory
Of a song unheard

Now I, Under different sun
Call out across the distance
Stand firm behind
This stage-trained heart

(Helps me to breathe, helps me to breathe)
Track Name: Knots
Love is a funny thing
Ties you up in knots
The first time I saw you
The first time, the first time

Breathing escapes me
My eyes dash to the floor
Blood rushes to my cheeks
Rushing, rushing

Wish I could do
What my body wants me to do
A few more shots might
Loosen up these knots

Anticipating
Ours bodies on the floor
Your breath on my neck
You breathe me in, I breathe you in

Breathing escapes me
My eyes dash to the floor
Raise the glass to my lips
Drinking, drinking

Wish I could do
What my body wants me to do
A few more shots might
Loosen up these knots

Wish I could do
What my body wants me to do
A few more shots
Might Loosen up these knots
Track Name: In Unison
You-hoo
You-hoo
You-hoo

Rise up
Bind, blend, and bond
As one
In unison

Just put a little drop in
And when we all do
You're gonna be surprised
Just when you see what we can do

Banded together
With you
Banded together
With you
Banded together
With you, you, you you,
you, you, you, you and you-hoo

Rise up
Bind, blend, and bond
As one
In unison

Just put a little drop in
And when we all do
You're gonna be surprised
Just when you see what we can do

We're gonna make it right
Marching through the night
Lock those arms up tight

You, you, you you, you
You, you, you, you, yoo-hoo
Track Name: Moving Forward
It's the little things
that remind me
(Moving forward, moving forward)
It's a piece of me
that feels incomplete
(Moving forward, moving forward)

How can you be in a better place,
when I am here without you?
Your perfect skin and your liquid smile
Has turned to ashes

There's no one to call
for recipes
(Moving forward, moving forward)
Or cheer me on
when I've reached for dreams
(Moving forward, moving forward)

How can you be in a better place,
when I am here without you?
Your perfect skin and your liquid smile
Has turned to ashes

(Moving forward, moving forward)
(Moving forward, moving forward)

They say
you're at peace
(Moving forward, moving forward)
That now
your body's free
(Moving forward, moving forward)

How can you be in a better place,
when I am here without you?

(Moving forward, moving forward)
Track Name: You Alone
And still the morning comes
I expected for the world to end
I never thought I’d breathe again, without you
I never thought I’d breathe again, without you

Still I will try to know
The rush of emotions sure to come
I never thought I’d sing again, there’s no tune
I never thought I’d sing again, there’s no tune

I never thought I’d breathe again, without you
I never thought I’d sing again, there’s no tune
I never thought I’d breathe again, without you
I never thought I’d sing again, there’s no tune
Track Name: A Fevered Dream
Stranger in my skin
Child crying when
Walk through these tangle roads
Where time can begin

Where do you sleep?
Where do you dream?

Behind the walls
Between the stars
Where light and love both fall
Waiting for the call

Where do you sleep?
Where do you dream?

Where do you sleep?
Where do you dream?
Where do you sleep?
Where do you dream?
Track Name: Doubt The Stars
Doubt the stars are fire
Vengeance, vengeance will be mine
Doubt that the sun doth move
Vengeance, vengeance will be mine
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt
That I love

Father slain, mother stained
Oh, calls for my vengeance
Father slain, mother stained
Oh, calls for my vengeance

Doubt the stars are fire
Vengeance, vengeance will be mine
Doubt that the sun doth move
Vengeance, vengeance will be mine
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt
That I love

Father slain, mother stained
Oh, calls for my vengeance
Father slain, mother stained
Oh, calls for my vengeance

Doubt the stars are fire
Doubt that the sun doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt
That I love
Calls for my vengeance
Track Name: One More Mystery ( Pieter Nooten Remix)
We had to see in the dark
We were children of the night
We had to be in the dark to be
Children of the night
My hair reached to the sky
To try to reach your height

You’re with the gods
I’m with the rocks
You read the cards
I find the squats

One more mystery, one more day
They say leave me one more day
One more mystery, one more day
They say leave me one more day
Holding out your hand to say, please
Holding out your hand to say, give me please

You’re with the gods
I’m with the rocks
You read the cards
I find the squats

You’re with the gods
I’m with the rocks
You read the cards
I find the squats
