Track Name: Weight Of The Earth
WEIGHT OF THE EARTH

If I could only find my way
untangled like a child
I'd linger no longer
and find my own way back...

Scared to grow among them
I know what lies ahead
Another silent season
and I wish for more...

I bear the weight of the earth
while you softly sleep
Autumn in the country
I feel you in the wind...
Track Name: Further Still
FURTHER STILL

No shadows move across our hearts
They will never tear us apart
On our way to somewhere
Over the rise, the strangest pair...

Stretch my fingers and toes
Find a body in my clothes
I knew no violence until you came around
and slipped away without a sound...

Our lives are small and incomplete
I'll lose you in a dreamless sleep
My world is yours to keep...

I'll burn forever, his hand in mine
for all I couldn't leave behind
Now winter breathes the coldest chill
Further we'll go and further still...

Our lives are small and incomplete
I'll lose you in an endless sleep
so my world is yours to keep...
Track Name: Stretch
STRETCH

Wake the sky, call the sun
Stretch the clouds over the earth
A feather fell, rippled lake
The morning frost on scattered rocks...

Tired bones, weary young heart...

You will be here all the time
walking beside me
Wake us up, we will rise
Stretch the years over our lives...

Tired bones, weary young heart...
Track Name: Lady Of The Dying Moon
LADY OF THE DYING MOON

O' Lady of the dying moon
I woke to hear your distant tune
I followed you into the woods
and there I think I understood
the Lady of the dying moon...

O' Lady of the dying moon
I never thought you'd fall to ruin
You'll swallow fists and razorblades
and blood will spill before the day
Tomorrow is so far away...

O' Lady of the dying moon
I know your time is coming soon
If I had you there would be no holes
I'd share the madness in your soul
and sail away to better shores...

O' Lady of the dying moon
the night is silent as a tomb
I'm drinking from an empty glass
and counting all the years that pass
until I hear you once again...
Track Name: Permanent Sunset
PERMANENT SUNSET

I gaze upon an open field
over the hills and beneath the waves
Somewhere in the depth of blue
to a scene from the old forgotten days...

The dreams I have inside me now
stay the same as I grow and grow
They'll fall upon the same deaf ears
forever frozen by the wind and the snow...

There's an ocean of stars watching over us from birth
This is a battlefield, I will crawl on to the ends of the earth...

Take me to the ground on which you walk
I want to forget all about the time
I'd close my eyes and sink into a life that was never ever mine....

Are you there, silent stranger?
Your thoughts weigh heavy on my mind
my ship has ceased to sail away
lost in an endless paradigm
I am calling to you, unfathomable soul
Your fragments all seem to fall in place with mine at the centre of it all

Take me to the ground on which you walk
I want to forget all about the time
I'd close my eyes and sink into a life that was never ever mine....

Track Name: Angel Of The Ride
ANGEL OF THE RIDE

Angel of the ride
Be right by my side
My home is so quiet
'neath the moonlit sky...

Angel of the ride
Stay with me tonight
Lift me up so high
Take me to the light...

Angel of the ride
Be right by my side
My world is so quiet
when you've gone awry...

Angel of the ride
Stay with me tonight
My heart swells with pride
when you come inside...

Angel of the ride
I am losing sight
My eyes open wide
Be my angel bride...

Angel of the ride
Don't give up the fight
Sing with all your might
from heavenly height...

Angel of the ride
Please let us collide
For you I have cried
For you I will die...

Angel of the ride
Take me from this life
Nothing seems so bright
now there's no you and I

Angel of the ride
Speak to me sometime
Someone to confide
Let's end all the lies...
