Track Name: If There Were Angels
If there were angels, you'd be amongst them
As in life as in your passing
Fragile tears burn inside our minds
A form of cleansing (as we say goodbye)
Yesterday's all remembrance with vision
Tomorrow's gone hold onto the vision
Some say your life has just begun when time becomes none
With confidence and affirmation you navigated this mad world
Bringing hope and confidence assured and so alive!
Faith in goodness is where I stand
You spoke of more that I do not fully understand
If you reach out beyond my dreams
I will reach out and try to believe
Some say your life has just begun
When time becomes one
When time becomes one
When time becomes undone
Track Name: The Lights Tonight
There were a few bright lights today
Infrequent and subtle but welcome just the same
Like a sudden revelation they revealed themselves
As soon as they appear they disappear
(seemingly never existing)
Swells of soft energy, enlightening, illuminating
Ponder and wonder and cease on sight
A simple distraction in time
To capture a glimpse in the night
I strive for these lights with all my might
What will tomorrow bring? A reason to sleep and rise
If this corridor subsides I'll hold onto tomorrow's promise
Set forth a spell to feed these sensations
Speaking to the heart (or maybe no one)
I'm leaving my options open
but I will harness the powers when I sense them.
I will cherish the powers
Ponder and wonder and cease in flight
A simple distraction in time
I'd like to capture a glimpse in the night
I strive for these lights with all my might
Tonight, tonight
Track Name: Our Future
As of today our future is determined
The future's certain if you observe objectively
Uncertain burden moving away from me
Not out to save the world
Caught in a restless game
Weary of bearing the incredible mental strain
of stating the obvious with responses so mundane
Quietly, constantly getting dimmer
No will to provide any answers
Not out to save the world
Caught in a restless game
The future's determined
Do you want the future determined?
Track Name: Spirit Rising
Such a slender thread separates us from life's boundaries
Flirting with destiny on this terminal senseless ride
With a delicate drop your existence will dissolve
The mind can rejoice and find it's resolve
This plane's filled with sorrow
much sorrow and disgust
Wrapped so tenderly into a whole of dulled lust
Passion and spirit they are rising
Extracted from the soul
With a delicate drop your existence will dissolve
but the mind will rejoice and find peace
Track Name: R.A.M.
Whenever I was lonely
Whenever I felt let down
Without a word you soothed my mind
Our language was simple yet understood
When you spread your Red Astral Magic
You dissolved all of my fears
Infinite Beauty with Red Astral Magic
You'll remain forever innocent
Our love was sincere and honest
These bonds grew stronger from season to season
When you spread your Red Astral Magic
You dissolved all of my fears
Infinite beauty with Red Astral Magic
All the mysteries revealed reveal
Track Name: Relative Strangers
Relative entanglements that are complex
and damaged and often bitter
With so much history that will never be known to each other
We're separate yet somewhat estranged
Associated with these strangers
If you feel no deeper calling You are free to never align
Who do you really project yourself to be?
And if we open up we might be free
Physical and mental capacities are failing
and possibilities are fading
Wallowing in our own worlds with no hopes of retrieval
The longer we wait the more we separate
as the years become more weighted
White wash my senses...
Separate yet somewhat estranged
Associated with total strangers
If you feel no deeper calling
You are free to never align
Our fragment in history will fall behind
(white wash our lives)
It's sad to think we left here not sharing our lives
(white wash any ties)
Track Name: And Never Return
50 years have passed which cannot be returned
A shameful robbery of your precious time
Just the thought of this brings tears straight through my eyes
An awful travesty that now has resigned
And now we witness your rebirth
A strange calm that is settling
I feel a gentle energy
That never had been your own
My deepest hope is that you sustain
A steady comfort, a balance
To never return
I never want you to return
Please never return
A slight anger remains
With questions that agonize
Why didn't we see an option?
A different path, a better plan
But now we witness your rebirth
A strange calm that is settling
I feel your gentle energy
that never had been your own
Hang on to this balance
for it can be shifted so easily
I know cause I feel it too
It's part of our identity
To never return
I never want her to return
Track Name: Desperate Souls
Families walk the Earth to gather it's nectar
Remember that the currency of nature is free
A long overdue need to terminate the heavy desperation
Growing and harvesting for our consumption
Protecting, preserving the environment
These gifts are ours and they are natural
These gifts are yours and they eliminate violence
All creatures are precious. Their lives should be valued.
Equal to you, equal to we, in wonder and stunning beauty
Imagine a world not relegated, where it's their sanctuary
They deserve to develop into their twilight years
A long overdue need to terminate the heavy desperation
Desperate souls suffering in harmony
A plea to end the competitive annihilation
Track Name: The Hush
Crawling within my skin
and I can't wait to hide away
from this wretched singularity on an island head count: me.
Sealed with a hush. Safety is a hush
I'm not speaking. It's a hush
Your hush says so much
Stunned and in disbelief that each and everyone
cannot grasp the continuum of morality and just
that is expected to be given to us
I won't stop waiting, anticipating nothing
Physically but not mentally together
(and this is) Sealed with a hush, a hush
Your safety is a hush, is a hush
I'm not speaking. I'm a hush
I said nothing's left for all to say
I don't know what you're thinking
It's a hush. It's too much
Track Name: One Last Kiss
With a kiss on your head we would start the day
With a look of love I would send you on your way
Oh so many years of gentle embraces
As you were held on my chest as a child
only to return in a delicate last embrace
My child of divine strength, you proved true to your name
Every step of your way was bold and determined
Always retained your dignity and respect
My daughter you will forever be
It's such a tragedy that we had to let you go
But I gave you one last kiss
and I sent you on your way
