Track Name: In Winter
charmed
as a light run down the pane
racing
against the rain
fallen forth again

slowing
twisted as its severed
and blossoming

glowing
shimmering
sighs as love
cries as love
everywhere
in winter

blessed
as stones that make the sands
dissolving
through rouge mist
azure eyes grow bright

pleading
for young and yester years
for ever new
Track Name: Immortals
In the arms of the embers of ages
lie the whispers of heaven,
regrets and lies.

The answers once we knew were, reverie,
the end of an age of unspoken desire.
Our musing tides race onward
a deluge unbound by the Kraken and crow.

More alive,
Unbelievable, rapturous
All our lives,
A tale that never ends.
More alive,
Unbelievable, alluring,
Divinity is nothing but
the spark of human sighs.

What things shall matter that we've done?
May we live 'neath the moon
Say we've n'ere seen the sun....

But we may share the darkness,
Close our eyes wide, dream deeply the sea
Immortals reign as arrows
Flown in an instant, and laid low again.

Immortality is not
a luxury, its livable -
larger than our lives
until we're gone.

In the arms of the embers of ages
lie the whispers of heaven,
regrets and lies.

So swollen ever the sounding
Of memory ever as deep, and wide
Forevers born out of love
Fade away till they rise with the sun....

with the sun.
Track Name: The Other World
I heard you
We are not human
never were,

we're beautiful
When the din fades
We are light

Illuminate
My mind inside me
Voices run

I heard you
We are not human
We are one

Our neverending story
Never ending, never where
We've just begun
And ended
Where we were.

Tell me how
you grew inside my
mind you knew,

We're beautiful
Another world beyond
A mirror.

Our neverending story
Never ends, and never will
We've just begun
And ended
In the still.
Track Name: As We Are
Are we colored as we are
All the colors that we are

It's allright, I know

I came through the door, of blue lights sounding me
with every sway and savoring the time
stepping cautiously admist some grand design
You stared my way, stayed away.

There's an angel on my wall
And he's green as day and night.
Flying farther than I could, and growing
Inward, looking farther than i could
Insatiable
Collapsing all the stars above, below
There is no where else to go.

Now dancing drowned in glowing amber words
Is much safer than, a tempo told with eyes
I could love and live behind a bold disquise
Its not the halflight of the way that we could be
You lost me long before we could see
Together.

There's an angel on my wall
And he's green as day and night.
Flying farther than I could, and growing
Inward, looking farther than i could
Allknowing
And flies so far I know there must be heaven
in his arms
Just as we are.

I dreamed of you
I saw you there
A glow of green, a glance of blue

I pictured you
I heard you there
So soft the dance, as we are through.
Track Name: Red Sands
When i was a little child, i ran -
after the rains, captured faeries, again
and again, released them, in pink balloons
Oh mother, look at the clouds, they're weeping for you!

Pray, child
Pray, the desert brings rain
Child, pray
Give up illusions, and follow another storm
Pray, child, pray,
for salvation, in red sands.

Pray, child, pray
red deserts bring rain

And the clowns and the kittens
chased on close behind -
LIfted me inward, to treetops, so high
I prayed for salvation, the faeries, to sway
And sing my poor mother, to sleeping the day.


Pray, child
Pray, the desert brings rain
Child, pray
Give up illusions, and follow another storm
Pray, child, pray,
for salvation, in red sands.

Pray, child, pray
red deserts bring rain.

I said mother, look at the clouds
They're weeping once more
But she only poured down herself, a tide washed ashore.
I lifted my own eyes, to meet her disquise
Dried on the red sands, forever alive.
