Track Name: Black Adam
I'd banish the conclusion
Of prospective happiness
From hearts with hope to beat
That break with bland corruption

I'm like Black Adam taking on the whole wide world
I'd destroy the city for just one girl
I'll rocket through the train wreck to find the time
While forces fly the stars

My body's a jumbling rhythm
Hear the robot rattle of the dying
At night the billeted soldiers
Fight the peace of my mind

I'm like Black Adam taking on the whole wide world
I'd destroy the city for just one girl
I'll rocket through the train wreck to find the time
While forces fly the stars

I can't wander through the folds
Of your turgid prosody
Still so much to destroy
To bury crazed sanity

I'm like Black Adam taking on the whole wide world
I'd destroy the city for just one girl
I'll rocket through the train wreck to find the time
While forces fly the stars
Track Name: Pinnacle Bldg, 10PM
I know I should go home that my
skin glows pale again
and the pastel waves will never splash
from the frame over me.
But this doc is pure white snow
and it longs to feel the fingers
Of one with a human touch like me,
on the keys, oh it begs for me

At night the lights stay on
In the tenth floor conference room
And the morals of the day lie still
In the silk flowers' constant bloom

Outside there's a space occupied by a lonely gold Le Baron
The light flickers overhead, bad wires
and the moths, the dying moths.
But this car won't soon be driven
The building winks with a window
A cat in the chassis takes a nap
by the warmth, the engine warmth

At night the lights stay on
In the tenth floor conference room
And the morals of the day lie still
In the silk flowers' constant bloom
Track Name: Phosphorus
Drenched in the sonnets of still life she imagines him
The boy that lays his hand on lighted chin and dreams of real life
Inside the frame of summ’ry days of freely spoken thoughts
The canvas stares with longing at her soft brush strokes

They tried to tell her it’s all been done, Nothing is new under the sun,
But as her visions fill the hall, The absolute will soon dissolve

Following the framing of the pillars and the phosphorus
She subtly sank through waves of the unknown circumstance
Surrounded by the fires of her lavish made-up glory they
Quietly sing her pilloried praises

She finds her muse in what she sees
Inspired divinely from the breeze
And as her visions fill the hall
The absolute will soon dissolve
Track Name: Lift the Rain
Hey, my face is raised
You won't be joining my gaze soon
The brightness is unresolved
Is there a point to all this fire?
You better learn to lift the rain

A conscious can be a salve
Obscured in dawn's half-light
Escape is what I need
Will you let me bleed alone?
I can walk eleven days

My thoughts flow like phantoms
Mere shapes when laid bare
The eidolon forms fake the fullness of being
Made self-aware

A shot rang over the bow
Will I cast my crown aside?
The Sirens call to me
But will I be undone?
I better learn to lift the rain
Track Name: The Fool's Melodye
In he daunced with a grin and a songe
As all that was right replaced the wronge
And the jokers sang,

“Halakala halakala hakahala
Halakala halakala!
Halakala halakala hakahala
Halakala halakala!”

The olde dragonne sat on his gold
And he huffed when he heard them all sing
Still the village sang,

“Halakala halakala hakahala
Halakala halakala!
Halakala halakala hakahala
Halakala halakala!”

'Alms' cried the poor man and rattled his cup
And when the merchant rode by, the beggar stood up
And he daunced in time

Halakala halakala hakahala
Halakala halakala
Halakala halakala hakahala
Halakala halakala

The faire maiden sighed as she dreamt of her knight
In far away lands, in perilous fights
And her swete lips cried,

“Halakala halakala hakahala
Halakala halakala!
Halakala halakala hakahala
Halakala halakala!”
Track Name: If I Drop Anchor
Alone on the open sea
I'd skip the Sirens but they called your name
And break all the bearing lines
If all the currents didn’t flow the same

If I drop anchor will you come aboard
Don't be afraid to leave the shore (whoa-ooh-whoahoh)
We could stay in the cay for the rest of our lives
Our love is rising with the tide

Reading the ocean of stars
They know their path but winds change for me
Starboard serpents wake
But I just can’t take no more uncertainty

If I drop anchor will you come aboard
Don't be afraid to leave the shore (whoa-ooh-whoahoh)
We could stay in the cay for the rest of our lives
Our love is rising with the tide

The seas may toss
But I won't care
I'll weather the storms just as long as you're there
Track Name: Trollbeard
The sun drifts thru’ waking trees
The leaves fall, float on the breeze
As Trollbeard imbibes the gloam
a glinting of magic shown

The dancing satyrs in the sloping fields
The old gnome finds his purpose in the real reason that
branches shake the sun and
stars rejoin the earth when day is done

The night falls, the owls croon
Through summer and springtime moons
His beard grows like northern moss
His eyebrows a winter frost

The dancing satyrs in the sloping fields
The old gnome finds his purpose in the real reason that
branches shake the sun and
stars rejoin the earth when day is done
Track Name: Thurgh the noyse and revelrye
Through the noise of the crowd your voice rose to me
Track Name: Until I Let Go
She said "I can't understand why you're talking
in rhymes while withholding the reason for being
together like one perfect angel falling through
shining celestial symbols of something you meant.”

"It's hard to say when I last saw you like this,"
She says as she caresses my broken-down wits
And I laugh at her subtle imitation of me
hurling phrases at thin-air passers-by

What do we do when I'm gone?
Every road points to the phone
We won’t see the outcome until I let go

She said "I can't understand why you think
like a crumbled old man with the audacity
to answer quite clearly the reason I've fallen down
through the doorway where I let you go..."
Track Name: Altindia
...
Track Name: Ballad for a Star
All the lines are bent
In the house of mirrors
May appears to me
From the distant past
Shining through the glass

On the other side
of the sheet I catch her
She's invulnerable
but not to herself;
ghosts are after her

All our lives we've been looking
at apparitions of ourselves
Though you May have never noticed
I am made from your light

In the burnished hall
with the walls reflecting
Bearings can’t be found
Self-belief is bent
We are here again

All our lives we've been looking
at apparitions of ourselves
Though you May have never noticed
I am made from your light
Track Name: FM Tomorrow
Don't give up that feeling you were meant for something else
Turn off your mind to thoughts that leave you captive to yourself

Do you shimmer with the light off?
It's a glimmer of the radiant signs
that your life is divine

Iridescent journeys led you to your present state
There's not need to worry, there's no need to contemplate

You can shimmer with the light on!
It's a glimmer of the radiant signs
you can be divine!

Don't give up that feeling you were meant for something else
It is just believing love is all and everyone

Join, to the lights all around you
Laugh, that the madness is all in your head
It's the feeling of knowing your free
Track Name: Red Sun
You got me believin
You got me believin -lievin
You got me believin -lievin -lievin
(Seaborne invocation
Is no indication)
You got me believin
You got me believin -lievin
You got me believin -lievin -lievin
(Shoreline scintillation
Is no aberration)

She sighs, "We'll buy some time
before red sun burns out"
Her sand voice is melting
into stain'd glass ether
Whisper, "never lose her"
She's here, never lose her
She's here, never lose her

You got me believin
You got me believin -lievin
You got me believin -lievin -lievin
(Seaborne invocation
Is no indication)
You got me believin
You got me believin -lievin
You got me believin -lievin -lievin
(Shoreline scintillation
Is no aberration)

Sundown backlight changing
over shadow mountain
Nighttime lighted lanterns
restore fading timelines
Fall back into never
Sleep now, sleep forever
Sleep now, sleep forever
