Track Name: OVERCOME
Do you remember when you didn’t care?
The complex manner in which we fair…
All the rights of a wrong...All the wrong overcome…
Won’t be feeling this bad, once the Light has won…

And it’s like you’re willing to be, never free.
A million sunsets give a shadow that was much too much for me.
And it’s like you’re willing to see, never me.

As the sunsets cause your shadow to be just a fallacy…
Remember how we just stood and stared,
The nervous laughter to show we ‘cared’…
All the light of the Sun…Or the light from a son…
“Don’t be greedy…” they said… “You can only choose one…”

With time and attention, we’ve come to care.
And the foundations, they shook I swear…
With a fight we overcome, with hope we’re not done…

With a shudder that spread…
A relief…I was overcome…

With a shudder that spread…
Overcome.

And it’s better to not play dead…and overcome…
Track Name: ALL THE COOL KIDZ R DOIN' IT
There it was…out the corner of my eye,
Bathed in sunlight, wrapped in integrity.
Seemed like falling through the stars,
holding on to how much this meant to me.

Oh...
How much this meant to me…
Oh no…

And when you’re lost in the grey,
you’ll know your own.
A heart beating, so…

And through the paralysis of the negatives,
You’ll find your way back home.

Painted in your soul, Ingrained and dull.
Colours ranging through…
A spectrum of light, waveforms deny.
Still not sleeping though…
And deep in the night, it plays tricks on your mind…but you
know better though?

There it was…out the corner of my eye.
Bathed in sunlight, wrapped in integrity.
Seemed like falling through the stars…holding on to…

How much this means to me…
(F**k you very much!!)
Track Name: AMOUNTING TO NOTHING
Praying…but yet not…
It’s just me getting in my own way again.
Because…when all is said and done…
It all amounts to a whole lot of no concern…

In this moment, I feel like there’s a point to…
everything that’s to come,
everything that’s been done.

In this closure…step into the light.
It all amounts to a whole lot of no concern…

Speak in code words…
Know when to pick and choose your fights.
Bleeding hearts aspire…
To run the gauntlet of failure and hope.

Because through all of your stresses and your
worries, they amount to…
NOTHING!
So live!

And sing!

And love!

…and just be…
Track Name: START FROM THE START
So, let me start from the start…
But just be aware I was never any good at this part.
You see, it’s all the clatter and noise in my head…
Doesn’t make for good conversation, it must said…
So, anyway…

A complete sound.
A reason to communicate...clearly, in a safe space.
I watch you dearly…struggle to find.
In this crowd…
DEAFENING NOISE…
(Your own safe space…)

And it’s a dying art.
The subtlety of conversation...not mired in frustration.
Not embittered and chewed and spat across the room.
See, it’s the mindless patter than I dread, yearning for much more
instead…
So, anyway…

And here I find myself, thankfully reaching for the pen,
It’s taken some time to write again, to find a reason.
To formulate, to write it down, to get it out.
To speak of it, to shout it out, to sing it out.
To speak of it, to shout it out, to sing it out, to sing it out.

To sing it out…
Track Name: OUBLIETTE
Hiding in the secret shroud…
Hiding in the “sssshhh, not so loud…”
Revelling in the open rooms.
We might get caught soon…

Folding into the flesh, Combined.
Hands all over, then entwined.
Pushing on and through this time.
We may just get caught this time…

The point I missed…
Thy holy piss now turns to wine.
Just bury your head in hell and everything
may just turn out just fine.
Didn’t even care, what may come, how or where…
Maybe just trying to get caught this time…

Now just forsaking the thoughts that we spurn,
Shaping and making the bridge to be burnt,
Collapse under weight of things that we say,
Ready the lies for lays ahead…

Stand back and see all that we’ve done.
Stand back and feel all that’s to come.
No way out of this place…
All escape ideas are futile, I fear…
Track Name: GOT A FEELING
I’ve had this feeling…
Repeating and repeating.
Maybe I should get out tonight…but what’s the point
when I’ve nowhere to go and simply just don’t feel right…

And I’ve got this feeling…
See “it” crawl across the ceiling.
But I won’t give up without a fight…

Just gotta get through this down…
Just gotta get through this down…

And I see better now than I have ever done,
Control my urge to implode and just have some fun.
Yet the grey creeps up, envelops and then blocks the sun...
But I’m seeing better now than I have ever done!

Screaming out into the city...
Chanting words unto the oceans...
The leaking lights of past rights swim amongst the wrongs.
And now I’m seeing so much better than I’ve ever done!

A parody state of cold, fools and woe.
Just a little fallout, for the purposes of letting go.
And I’m intrigued to see where the spiral goes.
Of coruscation and whorls...

I just want...
(And now I’m seeing so much better than I’ve ever done...)
Track Name: 8
Within this edifice I built for myself,
And in this past tense…it didn’t want to die young.
A hole in anything that it peers through,
A hole in everything…I gave to you…

I’m not whole… (I’m not whole…)
And I’m not here… (And I’m not here…)
Yet I’m not alone… Yet I’m not alone…)
Bright as I yearn… (Bright as I yearn…)

King of the listless and lord of the vain,
Feeding the sickness, perpetuates the lie.
Towering infernos that reach to the sky…
Divide and isolate…Shock and awe…
I was 8…

On the outside it may seem a bit like a joke,
but it’s million ways to show how I broke.
And you buckled and bent and ate ash like a pro,
Out of the ‘pitched black’ (GROW!) the seeds you sow…

I ain’t looking for peace…
I ain’t looking for relief…
But I find it in every neat bottle I meet.
I ain’t looking for excuses,
This is the choice because I am weak.
And I find I feel so much better by sinking deep…

And I mean now!

I’m not whole… (I’m not whole…)
And I’m not here… (And I’m not here…)
Yet I’m not alone… Yet I’m not alone…)
Bright as I yearn… (Bright as I yearn…)
I…ACHE…
Track Name: REVERENCE
A little bit of wealth, a little bit of nothing?
A little bit of health and then one thing… (one thing…)
And the reasons wanted…just to be what it is.
The seasons running, past and finishing…
“Hey, can you hear me Father? What’s the meaning?”
...and now the breathings harder…
I remember the feeling of something being taken away…Oh…

I guess we just didn’t want to know…
The rising tides, with their heaving sighs.
A light abound, reach for the shore.
If there’s something after, you’ll know for sure.
I know now that it’s honourable.
Find a feeling because it’s ok to cry.
Pressures off, no-one’s a ‘tool’…but if ask me how
I just played the fool…
I remember the feeling of something being taken away…
I remember the feeling…
I remember seeing them being taken away…
I remember, Remember, Remember, Remember,
Always remember…
Track Name: THE ROSE, ABLOOM
Listen…as I.
Whisper.
Intently.
Over.
And I, cherish.

It’s so easy to play, those stupid games.
But I…it won’t be me.
This is my declaration to you…

Know I…

And when the river is high…I hold my own.
And when they river is dry...Love them bones.

And when the river is dry…I hold my own…
Hmmm…
And when the river is dry…Love them bones…

And when the river is high…I hold my own.
And when they river is dry...Love them bones.
Track Name: The Entangled Roots Of...
We’re born with our roots entangled in what do not know

As they grow deeper, so do we.

Only if we break free from them, do we see how even a
leafless tree can cast the starkest shadow

...and how every presumed ending is only the imaginings
of a potential beginning.
Track Name: THE OBLIVION TREE
And you are...
(Infinite)

YES!

And you are...LOVE...

YES!
Yeah...

And by the moon...
(Living a way)
And by the moon...
(Up above)
And in the distance...
we’ve not lost our way...

Breath: Peace...
