Track Name: Reflect the Old World and Disappear
I wait near the edge
Adjust the frame – uneasy feeling
I hide on the shore
Reflect the old world and disappear
Between the lines that have drawn me here
 
There’s something in the noise
Of this skin – this life
A broken understanding
Of a broken heart – of a broken will
 
I search with eyes uncertain
Run down this age-old path
Into the waves
Into the waves
With a whole heart of fire
Track Name: A Wound for Everyone
Slighted, no time given to you
The world rushes by
Lost in the folds
Degraded and voiceless
Given to despise
Blood welling in downcast eyes
Wound this one
There’ll be a wound for everyone
There’ll be a wound for everyone

Sun sharp on a cold life
Abused between wrong and right
The parade of corrupt principals
Our shared crucible
It stands to blind us all

Loveless, dreams laugh and run away
Your heart – your prison
Fierce want of love
The sum of your hatred
And the blood runs down
To wash it all away
And hell is, without question
On this side of the grave
On this side of the grave

Sun sharp on a cold life
Abused between wrong and right
The parade of corrupt principals
Our shared crucible
It stands to blind us all
It stands to blind us all
Track Name: True Sight
A deep ground – steady eyes
To see the world from the sky
Its true face shines in the morning sunlight
 
It flashes behind my eyes
Burns through each disguise
A golden horizon
Undeniable in me
 
A flourishing landscape draws out a second sight
To move with, to sing with
The essence of life
And to grow
Into the Soul of Light as it pours from the sun
 
Building or breaking
Resigning or instating
To master a dance in these tides that never cease
Grey world abandoned in a rapture of momentum
This willful ascent of heart and mind
A path of living symbols, of shimmering light
To move with, to sing with
The essence of life
And to grow
Into the Soul of Light shines from the moon
 
To capture searching eyes
Flashing across waves
Moments of true sight
Span all time

Through the desert that’s been
And the desert to come
This beacon of wisdom
Cradle of our kind

Through the desert that’s been
And the desert to come
This beacon of wisdom
Cradle of our kind
Track Name: Hidden Laws of Providence
Upon a hill
Above the clouds of so many years
Our eyes lift to the Eastern sunrise
We take in the air
In the absence of despair
Exhale into the stillness
With a heart that we share
And embrace
 
By hidden laws of providence
 
If we have each other we have everything
Hand in hand beyond this sleeping world
And its bloody trail
Of needless suffering
Tired and stumbling
We set ourselves apart
 
By hidden laws of providence
 
This is the beginning
Illusion stripped away
All opposites reconciled and we move in such a way
With silent understanding
Beneath our wings, our love
Transcending flesh and blood
 
By hidden laws of providence
Track Name: An Act of Will
I stand outside
Above the tide
In a quiet
Empty space
Perfectly still
An act of will
Sublime
Slowly revealing
Through and through
A sword of truth
Absolute
In its execution
 
Out of Wilderness
Of untempered unrest
With a mind to the morning sky
To the cold air
Through golden fields
To the sun

I reach into
And see beyond
Behind the words
Under the breath
A second sight
In quiet observance
Alert in the stillness
As an act of will
 
Out of Wilderness
Of untempered unrest
With a mind to the morning sky
To the cold air
I wash in streams
Under cypress trees
By ancient decree
Out of Wilderness
Of untempered unrest
With a mind to the morning sky
To the cold air
Through golden fields
To the sun
Track Name: The Voices Mingle
I was carried across the sand
On the back – in the hands of a beast
That stood up under me
Driven to find underlying designs
At the mouth of a river

Where the voices mingle
Where the white flickers black
And the first and the last
Roar in the silence
I’m finally at one
With all I’ve become
And all that I have been seeking

To hold – to be held
In the balance

Letting out – letting in
It all begins and ends in the distance
Echoing in the nearness
Rising up to answer the call
From that brilliant source of all

To hold – to be held
In the balance
Track Name: When I Finally Reach the Sea
When I finally reach the sea
And it washes over me
I’ll drift with all that’s come and gone
Lose a mask I’ve held so long
This old clock face
The weight of time on its hands
As they turn to stillness
Like the open arms of fate
 
It all leads to this
As we work and dream and wish
And follow the sun across the sky
Wander as we may
Each river finds its way
Down mountains, through valleys
To the sea
 
We are all marching home
Together or alone
Through fields of love and sorrow
As all who’ve gone before
In this endless procession of life
 
It all leads to this
As we work and dream and wish
And follow the sun across the sky
Wander as we may
Each river finds its way
Down mountains, through valleys
To the sea
Track Name: Old Skin
I killed the last light of dying days
And the tired shadows across a broken stage
It was time
 
Dragging down to crawl around
In the circling tears and strife
To the folly of a falling life
I spare no time
Bleed no light
 
The old skin falls
Like a prison wall
 
First light floods from the East
Fills my mind’s eye with a forceful certainty
So many signs lead to this long-sought door
Where at last the long silence breaks
Into a lion’s roar
As I pass through
 
The old skin falls
Like a prison wall

The morning is alight
A surge of life
The long night is over
The long night is over
