Track Name: Moon
when we know not 
when we feeel much
when we have none
and when we loose touch

and the light fills the space
blessing it with its early grace 
wounded  /but happy to embrace
the same another day another place

the southern heat of the day
will leave way to the warm night
the shift will be a breeze
the giant moon will look on

when we know not 
when we feel much
when we have none
and when we loose touch

and the light fills the space
blessing it with its early grace (trace)
wounded but happy to embrace
the same another day another place

the southern heat of the day
leaves way to the warm night
the shift is now just a breeze
the giant moon looks on

i remember it long ago
wait was it just now
i see the crowd, the lights and the show
the players they all take a bow

i remember it long ago
or wait was it just now
i see the lights, the crowd and the show
the players they all take a bow
Track Name: Murdered Days
Je sais qu'un jour viendra
Où je perdrai de vue cette terre
La vie prendra congé de moi, en silence
Après avoir tiré le suprême rideau sur mes yeux

Cependant les étoiles veilleront dans la nuit
L'aurore surgira comme la veille
Et les heures encore s'enfleront
Pareilles à des vagues marines
Apportant plaisir et chagrin

Quand je pense a cet arrêt de mes instants
La digue des instants se brise
Soudain pour moi s'éclaire à la lumière de la mort
Ton univers avec ces trésors nonchalants

Exquise en est la plus humble demeure
Exquise y est la vie la moins prisée
Les biens que j'ai souhaités en vain
Et les biens que j'ai possédés
qu'ils s'en aillent

murdered days
where fear and god be found
the veil of ignorance darkens the brightest sun

weakness sets
the rain is falling dry
each moment runs
as if shot through the barrel of a gun

waisted stars
in dark and senseless skies
explode in a flash
and then wait for eons to die
Track Name: Hey Now
the fall and rise of nations and states
the war games dont matter much under the sun
the goods the bads your heavens and hells your gods 
wont be standing the test of space and time
the clothes your marketplace your car the toys just dust floating in the ray of morning light
the love the hate your sacred your faith
misunderstood equations in the bedroom field or a shrine

so hey now wont you come along and sing me my favorite song
and make it loud now, we'd like to wake up the angels who've been sleeping for too long

the road your path to wisdom
sold for dollars and cents on your supermarket shelves
your four wheel drive revelations
on middle class tree lined freeways exit to suburban dreams
air conditioned prayers, higher taxes
Sunday salvations Monday's fears
cell phones and laptops your posted comments pictures and thoughts
bottles thrown up to the satellite sea

so hey now wont you stroll along and sing me your favorite song
and make it last now you know we like to shoot down the clock and kill time once and for all
Track Name: Castles in the Sand
mid spring in twilight
the fire is burning beneath the clouds
once again i sit here and wonder
as the music plays i'm feeling younger

the fancy living, the simple dying
the sound of laughter and of crying
our time of work and of leisure
let the void speak as the preacher

i'm building castles in the sand

the words of love and hate
foolish pride and the shame
our pace shaken or in stride
they all go away with the tide

building castles in the sand
Track Name: Mental Horizon
incapacitating your mental horizon
the planted seeds of hatred they're rising
all sensible action now frozen
time awaits for your will to be broken

you can't find any truth at all
just make your way through the crowd and call
there's no freedom in stars and stripes
when mothers weep and fathers cry
Track Name: The Weight of Things
i came to the place
where the sun's late shade
fell into the cool summer lake

and you stood there, on it's shore's edge
called my name

a sky red, the day bled
i took another breath of life again
the weight of things fell upon me when
i couldn't see you, hear you call my name

i came to a place
where the sun's late shade
cast its spell against the lake
and you stood there on it's shore's edge
called my name

i couldn't hear you call my name
Track Name: Softly
leave all the roads behind you
go where the sun will find you
you know they'll never reach you
let the hand that invites you 
softly in

leave all the doors behind you
you know they'll never find you
lay the moon right beside you
let the hand that invites you
softly in

i have my nowhere to lay me down

leave all the roads behind you
go where the sun will find you
the calls will never reach you
let the hand that invites you
softly in

i have my nowhere to lay me down
Track Name: Ethereal Dances
You were that all to me, love
For which my soul did pine
A green isle in the sea, love
A fountain and a shrine

A  dream too bright to last
A starry Hope that did arise 
But to be overcast
For alas

For, alas alas with me
The light of Life is over
No more—no more
Shall bloom the thunder-blasted tree,

And all my days are trances
And all my nightly dreams
Are where your grey eye glances,
In my ethereal dances
Track Name: Cygnus
the pose is dangerous
spilling air used for thrust
until the wings still frozen
in a simulacrum of triumphant flight
shorted by the cooling body

the next morning an effulgence
blows in through vine soaked alabasters
the feathers stick to the spit
where she turns the bird a terrible prime
mover whose fat cracks and snaps

the light reveals the limit of your orbit
this time you've landed where they eat their gods
Track Name: Juillet
C'est l'angoisse de la séparation qui
s'épand par tout le monde et donne
naissance à des formes sans nombre dans
le ciel infini.

C'est ce chagrin de la séparation qui
contemple en silence toute la nuit
d'étoile en étoile et qui éveille une lyre
parmi les chuchotantes feuilles dans la
pluvieuse obscurité de juillet.

C'est cette envahissante peine qui
s'épaissit en amours et désirs,
en souffrances et en joies dans les demeures
humaines, et c'est toujours elle qui fond et ruisselle
en chansons.
Track Name: Outspoken
winter of life is so unkind
when we've played all summer long
you say goodbye to your friends and your foes
you walk that line as darkness falls

i have been always heartbroken
somehow always outspoken
