Track Name: Existence / Sunrise
Existence!
What do we have here?
How far does it reach,
Beyond the near?
Who made the gods,
If they even are here?
Where is the mind?
How old is love and fear?
If I can reach across to you,
Can space go forever out?
We would all be but one
Or so forever apart.
Can we understand
How small we really are?
Or will the ego come
And rip it all apart?
Time,
All of time
In the blink of an eye
Never shall we part
Until before we lived
The Sun just keeps on setting
So very long ago.


Look at the sunrise
From the day behind the world
Look at the sunrise
As it’s always been and will be
Look at the sunrise
Bringer of life and thinking
Look at the sunrise
Over the endless sea of time
Feel the sunrise.
Track Name: Morning Sun
Born with our eyes open
Born with our minds open
Cast adrift
Awe at the sun
Crying for shock and our mother’s arms
Look to the endless sky
See the void, or see the light
The answers fall
Down at your feet
One world
One world, is true
The labyrinth of opposing views
So easy to get through
Seen from above
They try so hard
In the morning sun
To build the wall
But never get it done
‘Cause it’s one
One
The light of day comes again
Peel back another skin
Fall right through
Wake to see
Life
And nexus of the world
Is true
Here within the strange day
Anything can be
A labyrinth of collective views
No need to see from above
They try so hard
In the morning sun
To build the wall
But never get it done
Try so hard
In the morning sun
But time is still
And there is only one
One
How will it end?
Track Name: The Imaginary Day
They say to be a mind
Is this way, that way
All day surrender to their mind
They look to see through the same eyes
The mind will play
And play forever
They come to own this mind
Welcome to the imaginary day
Who said it has to be that way
Time alone changes the day
But we stand here still
And as they come to own the mind
They won’t let go ‘till they die
Brother falls to need the life forever
Just where they want him
But they don’t see..
The mind will fly
And flies forever
And won’t be set in stone, oh no
They fail to own this mind
Welcome to the imaginary day
Who said it has to be that way
Time alone changes the day
We won’t stand here still
Welcome to the imaginary day
None can say it has to be that way
Time alone, they fade away
And we can move on
These fools come to own the mind
We won’t stop this time
They come to choke this changing mind
Madmen who can never ever win
Each breath brings the new mind
We take to the sky and fly
Track Name: New Sky
Woken far in time
Long time slumber
Welcoming back to life
Fallen to a world
Like lost home
Travelled through silver sky
The plan was to live and breathe
Could it be so that we could live
Under this new sky
Found here so much life
Two worlds in one
Under and over land
But caution for our breath
Poison beauty
That we could never stand
So cold
That we could never live
Under this new sky
So we indeed did go
Take this to your life below..
Track Name: Lan
They come here from Lan
They feel like human
Ancient mystery
Waiting to be seen
Undercover dream
Symbols to be seen
Emergent stories
Taken from the sky
Left behind
Answer the questions
Of their mind
They come here from Lan
They feel like human
Traces of their past
Gone
And so alone they feel
Wait, we call you to the love
Shown in the field
The truth is now
Closing for good
They come here from Lan
They feel like human
Track Name: The Way You Me
Something about the way
You me
Something that you say
To me
Something about the way
You me
Eyes scare like everlasting dream
Transfixed on the scene
She says unto me
‘I’m gonna make a change
Change coming over me
I’m gonna change the way
That you me’
Something about the way
You me
Something that you say
To me
Something about the way
You me
Eyes scare like everlasting dream
Power over me
She says unto me
‘I’m gonna make a change
Change coming over me
I’m gonna change the way
That you me’
Track Name: Gunnns
They took my Mama away
Said there’s nothing I can say
I miss my Mama so bad
Only Mama that I ever had
That money won’t save you
Not with one foot in the grave
Money won’t save you
With one foot in the grave
Take your Gunnns
They got the rocks in their head
They want all life dead
Their views are so bad
Only view the ever had
That money won’t save you
Not with one foot in the grave
Money won’t save you
With one foot in the grave
Take your Gunnns
Track Name: Something
Talking to you after the storm
That raged through our town yesterday
The night sky like fire was alight
As the rain began to fall
You told me that it’s alright
In time the sky would heal
In the fall of this next day
The tide was turning still
I can see
Something, something burn bright
I can see
Something, something inside
Finding gold under a stone
That did my foot betray
A rich man I would now become
My troubles drifting away
The paper bird that you made
Did but come in through my door
And in its claw I did see
My gold would be mine no more
I can see
Something, something ain’t right
I can see
Something, something inside
Catch the sun
Such to behold
My fingers they burn
I can see
Something, something burn bright
I can see
Something, something ain’t right
I can see
Something, something outa sight
I can see
Something, something inside
Track Name: Internal Mirror
Well, this is all I am
Waves fall into the sand
Everything I know and I see
Is all there will be of me
Well, I think, I am here
Wake from sleep to appear
Only now and it must be true
Live in a dream?
Maybe not as it seems..
Internal mirror
Stare at my life
The blink of an eye
I wonder how and why?
I see outwards in me
You see you just like me
No perception may just have meant
There was nothing
No one to see everything
Internal mirror
Stare at my life
The blink of an eye
Wonder tears I cry
There is no future
There is no past
The moment will last
Until here and now
Point your finger out into the sky
Draw the line out there into your mind
Have you heard that it can never end?
Till the waves come crashing in again
I pull in the air
Free, the world disappears
Think about the endless sky
That is inside
Inside my mind
That is what’s inside
Track Name: Stone3
The paths in our minds
Seem to fall into line
Too much
Go somewhere different
Exigent is such
I don’t want to walk
About the beaten path
That’s made
Transformation
Go another way
Third stone heading straight for the sun
Another world just begun
All we need everyone
Heading into the sun
Seeing the same thing everyday
What rules have said it’s gonna be that way?
Chances falling out of reach now
You can change
You can change this whole style
Third stone heading straight for the sun
Another world just begun
All we need everyone
Heading into the sun
So easy to stray from the norm
It’s all a game
And I know that it’s sold
Down to the notion
Of the same old plastic cage
Trying so hard
In safe, familiar ways... Again
Third stone heading straight for the sun
Another world just begun
All we need everyone
Heading into the sun
Third stone from the top of the sun
Communication coming strong
All we need everyone
Heading into the sun
Track Name: City
City
Won’t you save me from my own life
City
Save me from my own life
Slow down
Slow right down
You’re moving too fast for me baby
City
Save me from your grey sky
Track Name: Dreamstate
In the day
I see you now my baby
River flowing
Flowing down to the sea
Like you to me
This time coming like a dream
Circling to show us where we go
In the night
Take me down
Unto the sea now my baby
Days melting
Melt unto the sea
Like you to me
This time coming like a dream
Friendship to never end
It seems
In the life now
Track Name: Into The Thought
Into the thought they came stumbling
The elements once declined
A carriage of progression had begun
Ready to shine
Sat back they looked on
To see what would become
Their reaction was surprise
As to what had begun
Much amazement was felt
For this new romance
But as one outgrew the other
They would no longer dance
Changing mind
Left behind
The world
They came
And so bold
To ride
Ride its wings to the desert, dry
The once shining and ready map
Was given to this child
And its eyes grew so sinister
So clever and wild
Aghast they were held
Showing its grey glowing knife
And it riddled in cunning persuasion
To laugh at their forsaken life
Changing mind
Left behind
The world
They came
And so bold
To ride
Ride its wings to the desert, dry
Help me baby
Help me from your twisted mind
That pulls me from the ground
The illusion you’ve made
Now seems to be the only way
In a sea of lies
That’s what you told
But I am you, you see
More that you can see
Got to go now
Got to go
Got nowhere to hide
Got no in, outside
Got to go now
Got to go
