Track Name: Shimmer
Spinning in an endless void
Then surrounded by faint light
Here in this empty space
I see signals from far away

Out beyond the stars
I give my very soul
To you

Close your eyes forever
See the sunlight shimmering
Beyond ghost ships
Where the black sand touches the sea

Our communion
Reach
Reach out your hands
I give my very soul
To you
Track Name: Amnesia
I mean, I should know
I've wandered through this city all alone
I made my way by muscle memory
But I can't see
The streets and signs I recognize
The buildings are all different

These machines
Have eaten at the fabric of our beings
They've altered our ability to taste
And my head aches
I'm missing my connection
Not just to the hive but to the heart
To you
I will be true

I will be true

I forget
Everything except these broken songs
Scattered and emotional refrains
They remain
Diamonds and rubies
Sifted from the ashes of the past
Still intact

Still intact
Track Name: Hold On
All this time
You've been stuck in your head
Waiting for your shadow to bend
Where to turn?
Where could it lead?
Is there anywhere you’d rather be?

Hold on
Your blood is boiling
It's all within you

Is it better to give or just think about it?
It can be counterintuitive but you'll figure it out

These walls
Built around your heart
Are falling for you one by one
Watch them fall
Where to turn?
Where could it lead?
Is there anywhere you’d rather be?

Hold on
This dream is bigger than you thought, I promise
It's all within you

Is it better to give or just think about it?
It can be counterintuitive but you'll figure it out

Hold on...
Your blood is boiling
It's all within you

Is it better to give or just think about it?
It can be counterintuitive but you'll figure it out

Take all the time you need, love
I will live in your belief
I know I left you dry
When you needed me

This is a holy promise
A self-fulfilling prophecy
When you sing, love
Will you remember me?
Track Name: A Bright Tomorrow
Fight the nods
And change the audio
Driving east and headed for the dawn

Moving on
Vague shapes in scenery
Focus on memory, a flicker in the dark
A bright tomorrow

When it’s late
And I’m awake like this
In an anxious grip, that old paralysis
I think you were just like me
Sensitive and lost
Now you’re gone and I’m still reeling

What’s left?
Imagination and patience

Seduced, quietus est
Rest in sweet nothingness
Oh to begin again
Begin again
Brave and innocent
Innocent

What’s next?
Imagination and patience
Track Name: Alien In A Glass Case
You arrived on earth
Searching for a home
Beams of light
Guiding me to you
Keep me please

Now I'm in your arms
Now I'm at your feet
Hold on to me
Alien in a glass case

Looking out your eyes
A passive vacant stare
Curious
Are you even there?

Alien in a glass case
Hold on to me
Track Name: Möbius Strip
Möbius strip
Your song on my lips
Twisting me up
In your infiniteness
Around and around
Again and again
Möbius strip
I’m losing my place

I cannot resist
Tracing your shape
Feel your twist, your circle, your plane
Möbius strip
I said I would stay

Möbius strip
Every day
Feels the same
Just cycles in space
Around and around
Again and again
Möbius strip
I’m losing my way

I cannot resist
Tracing your shape
Here comes the flip
That gradual change
Möbius strip
I said I would stay

Tat twam asi
Track Name: Ghostly Melody
A ghostly melody
Keeping me awake
I don’t know where it came from
As day breaks

I tried to capture it
Keep it in a cage
Divine and rapturous
The melody escaped

Call out for you

On a starry plain
At the mountains’ edge
I’m always listening
To songs of love and death

Call out for you
Track Name: Cathedral Spires
Listen closely
If you let them, they will speak
Grandmother, you are here
Grandfather, you are here
All the elders
All the living breathing earth
You are here

Distant lightning leaps and plays
Thunder echoes in heavy rain
Rising mist in the cool air
You are there
You are there
Rising mist in the cool air
You are there

Mirror water
Spires of stone
Sacred mountain
Above it all
Little birds lead the way to your home
To your home

I will listen
Ask for you
Sing your stories
Speak your truth
Send me visions, visions in the night
Send me strength, strength to live and thrive

Mother nature, father sky

Mother nature, father sky

Mother nature, father sky
Track Name: Infinity
Angels speaking of infinity
In sacred song

Fallen
You fell into deepest sleep
Then rose beyond my reach

Ask you where you’ve been
You’d say you never left
Just changed instead

I know you live on
In infinity all alone

Swimming
In that ether sea
You’ve changed a bit
And carried on

Fallen into deepest sleep
You rose beyond my reach
Beyond my reach

Ask you where you’ve been
You’d say you never left
Just changed instead
Track Name: Water/Waves
When you said forever
Did you mean forever too?
I could do forever
If I could be with you

Dive into the water
I could hide beneath the waves
Hold my breath and wait

Shelter in the silent deep
Looking for that missing piece

I can feel your rhythm
I can hear your steady beat
Tapping out a message
Speaking to me secretly

Dive into the water
I could hide beneath the waves
Hold my breath and wait

Shelter in the silent deep
Looking for that missing piece

Carry on for the love of God

Carry on
You are not lost

I will carry on

Dive into the water
I could hide beneath the waves
Hold my breath and wait
Track Name: Spider Silk
I’m wrapped up in spider silk
The trees on our street form a canopy
Snow falling fast
Past sodium lamps
It’s weaving me in
Weaving me in

Late at night in emergency
Walking the halls
Worried and praying for you
Stay calm, think positive
It’s weaving me in
Weaving me in

I’m wrapped up in spider silk
The trees on our street framing symmetry
Can’t shake the thought
I’m where I belong
It’s weaving me in
Weaving me in
