City Birds 02:51
The cards fall on the table The queen's smile it is met with a frown A brief glance and then His hand goes down Ghost songs in the distance All lost in the trade of smiles The cheap wine getting passed From hand to hand Empty streets resonate with swallow cries Summer's there yet the card players stay inside Should they pause for a while they would see it clear It is only the start of the losing streak Feeling a breeze of joy How could they not ignore Each other's laughter echoing through the night The bottle's half full and the world Is going down

Century Man 03:08
Sweet as the wine was the eve of the day Lights flashed bright as you sank into pain My oldest friend your blood’s running cold Faces blur in a world of your own While morphine has the curtains fall Spain’s fierce guitars will be leading your soul To your resting ground in the shade of the pines Place of choice for the century man
3.
Coastal Town 03:28
Another day gone by Ending with the dive Of light into the sea Free bodies adorn The beaming shores of town Where salt meets the land In place of buildings tall Piles of deadly stones Left families in ruin Clouds on the move Seagulls over roofs Couples in the nude Lovers embraced in their haven of grace Then the tide made their child companion of the night May the wisdom in her name come to light May her ship sail home guided by The steeple made of gold
4.
Red Fresco 03:11
Lands splintered by men Ignoring the umpire's call Power and malice avail Those who fester in feud What kind of man does it take To lead in the guidance of love History's door ajar For the giants of dust Once the fog of time dissipates What will be the name we dread To say out loud Greeting the sun on the rise The day of the empire's fall How many more demises Can one be the silent witness of Once the fog of time dissipates What will be the name we dread To say out loud

Silence 03:39
Meet the man behind the bar Spending a note On a drink to fuel the night Living the dream Til dawn comes and burns it away These streets he roams on his own Humming a song Short of rhymes and straight to the point Amidst the noise Of the city he thinks about home Cold days Knee-deep in snow Silence Deep overtones Silence Skies of grey slide further east A call for retreat Behind doors and walls of concrete Spending his time In absent presence he turns to the past Spring time A bed made of grass Silence A moon on the rise Silence
6.
Summer Sigh 03:00
Times of doubt Eyes wide open through the night Fingers cold In search of a better chord Clouds are still The road used to set us free Defeated by The faint spark of a summer sigh Dreary nights in Paris town Have me dive deep In a state of disarray Scattered words Astray, with no meaning served Hearts untamed Thrown out into the blaze Static trips to nowhere lands Leave me speechless In a state of disarray
7.
What kind of trip are you on Sitting as still as a stone By the small dividing wall Of all thoughts shut down Truth is your sweet desire Lost over a stream of tongues Follower-power-generated dreams Seizing this world from under the skin A heart beats from inside the grid Black and serene and lost to the sea The constant flow from the stream Of the river wild Captivated my empty eye Pushed my doors open wide Left no room to fantasize Bodies warm but trapped in ice Follower-power-generated dreams Seizing this world from under the skin A heart beats from inside the grid Black and serene and lost to the sea Actors of the world's collapse Thieves and jokers alike Looking deep in your eyes Fiction has come alive Another story made complete
8.
On this side of the blue hill There’s a house built from dreams Layered by hands of stone And the seeds that grow there Flourish like laughter And the souls it sheds Thrive in time To bid a place goodbye To wave back at a smile On through the gates On to the roads That serpent through the hills Perched on top of the highest roof Dances he who plays Melodies on a silver flute Little man metal made When the barking stops It is time to leave To bid the dog goodbye To cast a shadow high On through the gates On to the roads That serpent through the hills
9.
Here comes the morning light Cast on the bed on which I lay down Restless dreams I made Bounce on the walls and window panes If rest can’t be found I’ll make up scenes of you and I Rolling in gentle waves Whatever picture comes to mind Slowly drawn to the heart of the lake Time and time again I get caught playing the game hard This pain that splits my head Shadows the will to make the day count Sliding the surface lean Of waters deep and still Those wild fantasies Carnal scenes of you and me Neon lights have me wandering off the path In shattered glass I saw strangers on a line Behind dusty blinds Safe from the daring gaze of town I reach for the depth Of a feeling long withheld Slowly drawn to the heart of the lake
10.
By a Thread 03:42
Do you see the leaves dancing in The autumn wind They have done their time See them waltz on the ground Can you touch the clouds hovering Low and grey They bring the drain Upon your weary selves Both our voices are chocking on the lack of words And the silence we used to sing Has won May you hear the call of the waves Crashing us back together again But let us weave the thread of light While it lasts While it lasts
11.
I heard the noise first The bloodshot sound The chatter and the footsteps Coming closer I felt a tingling In all my limbs A shadow passed the mirror My eyes were opened With a heavy chest Pressed with fear Getting short of breath I trade rhymes with the fever moon The walls are dripping From nightmares had Centuries before I Called it my place My fortress Breached by rays of silvered relief Welcome to the room Said one
