Track Name: A Solemn Touch of Flame
A solemn touch of flame
ignites my fascination
and pulls my loaded brain
A body in the sky
fraught with deep frustration
You would not be contained

Ablaze in your last life
blinding and relentless
faithless and divine
You held us in a trance
instant and in succession
Ensnared by our designs

When they gave you a name
a price tag and a number
a cheque and a disguise
You doused out every light
into pure speculation
you left us with our lies

Distant impressions
is my light reaching you?
From with direction
is my life flowing through?
Form of expression
I would rather die than have to choose
Distant impressions
In my night
Pull me through - - - - - - -
Track Name: Chimera Suite
Brother, looked away my face
Carried on me the mark of Cain
It was a summer's day
We didn't hesitate

Though the spirits run I fed it all to me
And I remember not what I've done but only what I've seen

Give it all, but all I do is take
And all I do is hesitate
Oooh, aw aw, whoa whoa

My father died and left it all to me
And I remember not what I've done but only what I've been

I remember
Not what I've done

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Who are you?
Brother are you my bride?
Who are you?
Crooked through the divide
So sweet
I did you straight from inside
So sweet
I did you open up wide
Honey
I set your forests alight
Honey
I burn it bright burn it bright
Family
My mother brother tonight
Family
so darling don't be uptight
Track Name: Sasquatch
You say there is no other way
No other way than what you know
The petal falls on your last day
The plowman reaps just what he sows
And oh the seeds that he must grow
And of the tracks left in the snow . . .

There are those who get ahead
And there are those who fall behind
You might wish that you were dead
I might wish that I was blind
But there is really no end in sight
One has to quench one's appetite . . .

My heart is in my first
Hold it up against the light
Groping blinding for your pulse
It eludes you every night
The air is thinner up in the hills
So many pass into the hills . . .
Track Name: Swales
Arrow to the dawn
Harbor no reason
Hold your breath, hold you breath
You're gonna catch your death

Mantra, sitting stone
Leave your, don't leave your home
Hold your breath, hold your breath
You're gonna catch your death

Seaweed, ocean floor
Silence, speak no more
Hold your breath, hold your breath
You're gonna catch your death

Circling round we never see the sun go down
Track Name: Calculated Clutter
All of this time flows out of mind
Into the bind
Past phantom spheres set in
Calculated clutter

It stays out of grasp unless you stop reaching

And find you are breaching the very line you drew around your head
To which you keep halting you need to stop faulting

Space for confinement
Don't trust the bondage you feel
Eclipse the line . . .

And find you are breaching the very line you drew around your head
To which you keep halting you need to stop faulting
Track Name: Whipcrack!
Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my...

Setting out from Easter Island
with a bucket of stones and a compass in my hand
'Cause the sea is risin' and the sky is fallin'
they say the ringing in your ears is the sirens callin'

Not a day goes by

81st story, the United Nations
when we go on vacation they're all under occupation
In flagrante delicto, it follows
that the breeders of today will be the leaders of tomorrow

Not a day goes by

There are those who ventured for the far dimensions
boy if you want to survive, you best be rid of those pretentions
'Cause the Earth is flat and under high demand
If you don't invest in land then . . . where will you stand?

Not a day goes by
Track Name: No Beginning and Never Ending
Take

Take freely from me

Take freely from me

Take

I've got so much to give

I've got nothing left to give

- - - - - - - - - - - - -

Free

Free

Our mother is free

Our mother is free

So are we

She's got so much to give

She's got nothing left to give

So take freely
Track Name: Concentric Circles
Concentric circles and parallel lines
we are of one spirit, we are of one mind
Our paths won't cross in the currency time
but I can feel your fingers at the base of my spine
Firm of grip and tender of mirth
kissed by indulgence and the touch of the earth
Standing not to just do as you are sold
Pale one, your hands have grown so bold

My ancestors said to me . . .
You are both first and last
You are both first and last
You are both first and last
You are both first and, you're first and you're

Last, now, you've got a past, now, you hold it so close
Hold it so close to what you own
And leave the lawman by the wayside because
the laws aren't set in stone
I know we all have our intentions but we all
know that this bird has flown
So bring your drums out and dig your damns up because
We are coming home

I had to find out for myself
so I ran my fingers inside of your well
In the dorsal posture the scripture unwinds
trace back the origins left so long undefined
Slender digits startle in their pride
gentle callous, sweet divide
Generations bred into the folds
pale one, your hands have grown so old

Love me, and you can touch me, and you can strike me,
and I'll keep one hand on my own
You know the lawman he keeps it loaded because
he knows his cover is blown
I know we all have our opinions but can you
liberate the skin from bone
It's been a long time, so open your arms wide because
We are coming home
Track Name: The Nail Pulled from the Door
When you go to sleep
When you go to sleep
Bring something home for me

There are some things you must keep
There are some things you must keep
But what's left don't keep from me

If the walls have learned to speak
And if the trees have learned to speak
Then it's the walls that you must heed
And it's the trees that you must heed

Drink down this offering
Drink it down because it is free
Believe

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The fever hits the streets
The clouds fall to the sea
Hold fast to your feet

And when god kneels by your bed
Remember what he said
He hates to be misread

Now come back home to me
Come back home to me
Don't linger out of reach

The nail pulled from the door
The coat falls to the floor

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your heart
Keep me safe from harm
Keep me safe from harm
