Track Name: Common Sights
"Common Sights"

I crawl down on my hands and my knees,
Wading through the dark of the trees,
Slowly I rise back up to my feet,
To common sights, horrible scenes.

And with each glance I see,
a pardon meant not for me.

Fading out everything around,
Takes me down,
A whisper makes no sound,
Here.

With nothing but the day to slow up our pace,
We run as fast and far as we possibly can,
To enter or to leave, it seems quite the same,
We followed our path back into those dark trees.

And with each glance I see,
a pardon meant not for me.

Fading out everything around,
Takes me down,
A whisper makes no sound,
Here.

Track Name: Buried Love Song
"Buried Love Song"

'I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead,
I lift my lids and all is born again,
I think I made you up inside my head,
The stars go blazing out in blue and red.'

All the darkness gallops in.

I dreamed, I'd seen,
A world so strange so beautiful,
Forming.
You know we never should have took that job,
But we,
Are all just a lost pulse in the streets.

'Where beauty only blossoms to grow sear,
Where all is miserable, where without fear.
I can't escape the tedium of fate,
That weariness no one can love or hate.'

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead,
I lift my lids and all is born again,
I think I made you up inside of my head,
The same heart beats in every human chest.

Track Name: Waking Dream
"Waking Dream"

Now I'm always searching for ways out,
I fought this feeling hard into doubt.
You told me nothing lasts forever,
But I return each morning after that.

A simple sound with no resolution,
Leaves a ringing in my ears and my teeth,
So take your take time giving me an answer,
I'm waking from this conscious sleep.

Your not enough, enough for me,
Your not enough, to make me see.

As the suns light slowly fades,
Disturbed by the soft motion,
Of a shadow underneath.
Eyes open wide, I heard you say.

You said:

'A change in all things tastes so sweet,'
We're all alone, I think you know.
'A touch of madness brings defeat,'
To all we know, O restless soul.

Like the revolution spheres,
Traveling through ten-fold time,
To reveal what is not there.
Falling free, I heard you say.

You said:

'A change in all things tastes so sweet,'
We're all alone, I think you know.
'A touch of madness brings defeat,'
To all we know, O restless soul.

'Hope is a waking dream,'
I hope it's more then what it seems.
'Hope is a waking dream,'
I hope it's more then what it seems.

Track Name: The Artist Sound
"The Artist Sound"

Welcome back to Indian Summer,
The public sphere is spinning loose.
Down on Grub Street, where the hacks meet,
To discover who made who.
And the Arab Spring has left its sting in the heat of desert coup.
Down on Grub Street, where the hacks meet,
Oh the West has absolved you.

Mediate the middle ground,
Eradicate the artist sound.

Is it so loud? passing through now,
Fill your lungs and burn it down.
Walk the pavement over glass steps,
As lady luck peels off her skin.
If she kills us with the touch of her lips well we're better off that way.
Walk the pavement over glass steps,
While our memories decay.

Mediate the middle ground,
Eradicate the artist sound.

Track Name: Strong Son, Young Man
"Strong Son, Young Man"

Pour out my stubborn blood all over the sand,
Strong Son, Young Man.
We've both been here before, these wanderings had left us sore,
but wanting more.
I rise on stepping stones,
but it numbs my brain, ya it digs my grave.

But we can dig,
Deeper then any grave alone.
Paint 'Starry Night' on my body,
Everything that's new becomes old again.

A wave of reason, crashes over,
My true colours, show at midnight.

Strong Son, Young Man.
