Track Name: A Momentary Rift
Walking forward
division gone

Fragile hilltops
guide me on

Out of the traveller
pulls the form

Stumbling forward
on and on

And the veil begins to shift
the form releases
a momentary rift

And the hill begins to sway
the lines of meaning
are circling away

And the veil begins to lift
the clock unwinds,
the old man shakes his fist

The hand is pulling fast away
I see no meaning
faces of parades

A thought entwined
no communion
though silently aligned

The quiet world below
of these things,
we shall never know

And the trees begin to sway
no reflection
facing the charade

The voice on the plateau
of these things
we shall never know

We shall never know
Track Name: Glass Eye
Look out over the wild expanses
all the hearts beating
all the feelings
all the clawing

Trying to save ourselves
from falling into the darkness
into disorder

See beyond
through glass eye
across the darkness
into the stillness
all the silence

No more more movement
no hearts beating
no more feelings
no more crawling
time consumes me
Track Name: Other Worlds
There were other signs
on the outside
there were other signs
on the inside
there were other signs
on the outside

I left you standing there
between the lines
there were other signs
behind the lies

The house was warm
the water bright
the future holds me
through the night

Other worlds

Falling through the mirror
curled upon the stairs

Back here in the world
you footprints left me cold

There were other ways to find me
crumbs I left behind me

Other worlds
so far, to near

Other worlds
Other worlds

Other signs to guide me

Other worlds
Track Name: Edge of Time
where have you fallen from?
where are you calling from ?

where have you fallen from?
over sea and rocky shores

standing by the water's edge
lost in the swirling tide

where have you fallen from?
where are calling from ?

sun falls to moon
moon falls to sky
milky blue shimmers on high
light fills the body
blinding the eyes
on the edge of time I lie

sun falls to moon
moon falls to sky
milky blue shimmers on high
light fills the body
blinding the eyes
on the edge of time I lie
Track Name: Corridor
the slighted edge
the hidden mess
in my head
the human-ness
cannot pull the loss from loss
cannot push the loss from loss

children come to laugh and cry
when threatened they coil
when sleeping they coil

corridor
corridor
corridor
corridor of sky

it seemed a voice
from the void
with its bird cry
broke the movement
with its bird cry

corridor of sky
with its bird cry
corridor of sky
Track Name: Last Man
Live like I'm dead
fear becomes thread
haunting the shores
haunting the world
echoes in halls
silence in walls

Thoughts swim and swim
not reaching shore
I'm the last man
there's a knock at the door
thoughts swim and swim
not reaching shore
I'm the last man
there's a knock at the door
Track Name: Free The Prophet
Fall over knees
hollow then shallow again
fall over knees
hollow then shallow again

I see no way to begin
I see no way to begin

Oh
bowing head
sorrow
follows still
turn further
heavy of limb in the end

Hollow,
shallow then
shadow the wounded to end
turn then follow
follow the fruit to descend
follow the face to fragment
hollow then shallow again

Fall over me
all from above
folding this hollow within
I see no way to begin
