dreamscape

taking time twisting through dishevelled lands
a lone pinpoint of light
illuminates a long forgotten coil in the darkness

anchors and anvils, locks and bars, all covered...

i wander far in vision lands in search of power
a lone pinpoint of light
illuminates my rusty aching heart
it shines on me, it shines on...

anchors and anvils, locks and bars, all covered...

covered with musty old knitted tubes
musty old tubes
but my dreams are growing fainter
i'm alone in my dreamscape...

toys with boys and girls to whirl
forty-three pockets for two empty hands
crowded in lonesome alleyways
ragged shapes watch you from corners

a haggard town
with ragged beings
a haggard town
there's nothing as it seems

homeland

another story
we left in search of glory
never to return we said, we said in our great folly
we turned our backs against the rain
we never wanted to return again
seeking paradise

alien faces, alien hands
alien skies over alien lands
alien dreams in an alien bed
you will regret if you forget

together
we left our homeland behind
forever to roam
forever
forgetting to save in our minds
a vision of home
together
we left our homeland behind
forever to roam, yeah
never forsake your home

when you speed forward
leaving behind
forsaking your home
forsaking your kind
as the gap closes
then you realise
that you've got no anchors, no faith, no...
you speed ahaid, you leave behind
forsake your home, forsake your kind
you realise it's not for free
that you have no anchors, no strength, no home
to strength to go on in this world alone
you've forsaken your homeland, your homeland...

forever
the trees and the fields of home
forever i'll roam
together
together we will roam
in my mind i'll roam
forever
the trees and the farmsteads of home
together we'll roam, yeah
never forsake your home
you will regret
if you forget

like spent days

hell in heaven, faith defending
spring in summer, self concealing
tears and laughter worth envying
my soul's got fever and the ice is melting

never deplore, you're not even near
your tears may flow for cries you hear

the morning breaks you, the morning chills the day is cold
no way to take you, no way to go your story's told

how nice to live in a closed cage
morning comes with a chill and a broken heart
not healed but torn apart

never deplore, you're not even near
your tears may flow for cries you hear
my cries you hear
my cries you hear

the morning breaks you, the morning chills the day is cold
no way to take you, no way to go your story's told

smoke lines trail my breath
trail my failing breath
smoke lines trail my breath
trail my failing breath

= up =

absentminded

you see the world with the eyes of a child
but as you grow it fades away
don't let it fade away you might be losing something

butterfly over twin towers high
tried so hard almost reached the sky
but as the dust settled down he found a new horizon

don't let it fade away
keep it in your mind
don't let it fade away
cause one day you may find
don't let it fade away
see through the eyes of the infant
hey, fade away

don't believe a word i say
cause i'm grown up, grown up now
don't believe a word i say
cause i'm grown up anyhow
don't believe a word i say
i can't see through the eyes of the infant
hey, i've faded away

don't believe a word i say
cause i'm grown up, grown up now
don't believe a word i say
cause i'm grown up anyhow
don't believe a word i say
i can't see through the eyes of the infant
hey, grown up

the fiend in us
unable to drown
flees from the light
it creates with its own sense of humour
but when it bleeds
the fires down quick
and trumpets wail for freedom

for freedom
you feel it turning and turning and turning
your life blood is burning and burning and burning
the fiend keeps on turning and turning and turning
your life blood is burning and burning and burning, yeah

day by day

day by day, it's the same story
not much to say, you've heard it before
the same, the same story

day by day, i lied to you
day by day, i couldn't bear the truth
day by day, i told your eyes these lies again...

day by day
i have no more to say, just waiting for the moment
canít bear to tell your eyes these lies a single day
the sun goes down and we remain at the end of the day
far away
far and grey

day by day, a misty shade
knew what to do, i couldn't pray
my eyes were dead and yours so grey
another night, another day

i have no more to say, just waiting for the moment
canít bear to tell your eyes these lies a single day
the sun goes down and we remain at the end of the day
far away
far and grey

day
by day
it burned
i learned

every day the same
i well know who's to blame
my lips are sealed with shame
i hurt the one who gave so much to me

sarah's song

you and me weren't here
only shade, covered dream
timorous time ran so fast

water remained in a glass
greetings from mars didn't come
empty life was the killer of us
night came, dreams couldn't come
people slept and we felt love

absence of worlds, presence of minds
open doors to other worlds

you and me
wanted to be
wings of lies

kindnap of us, upset space
we lived in, nobody knew
we were killed

will-'o-the-wisp

i see it's you behind the wall
i built my walls to close it all
but now i've locked myself inside
from you i can't hide

from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide

i see it's you behind the wall
i can't deny i love you all
but faith has gone and left me blind
i think you're the same, if you don't mind

from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide

i see it's you behind the wall
i built my walls to close it all
but now i've locked myself inside
from you i can't hide

from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide
from you i can't hide

the door is open, but i'm afraid
to turn my back is the easy way
grit, dust and time have changed my sight
so now in dark i seak the light

my hands are empty, just like yours
my hands are empty, can't you see
ten thousand faces in a bottle of wine
will-o-the-wisp
will-o-the-wisp
will-o-the-wisp
will-o-the-wisp
