Track Name: 02 Machines Dream - Trading Stars For Solitude
Stars
Coloured streets of empty neon light
Stars
Make the dark a long lonely night

Stars
Trading stars for solitude tonight
That’s the way I feel right now

And I will fly

Stars
Hold your head up when you fall tonight
Know your dreams are drifting into light

Stars
Trading stars for solitude tonight
That’s the way it feels this time

And I will fly

Stars
All the way this time we won’t stop
Until the last of us are off the chopping block

Stars
Trading stars for solitude tonight
All the water flows back inside

And I will fly

Some you win
Some you take
Some are just for dreaming
Track Name: 03 Gandalf's Fist - A Painter Lost At Sea
You were brave, you were brave
Fought lights that kept on falling
And I just want to say, it was brave
Feeling brave
But I just wanna tell you
And I just want to say
Time, what is time?
It’s something that just grabs you
And leaves it all behind
In its wake, in its wake
Between the far horizons
And the shores you leave behind

And as you stand, the wind in your hair
You look into the night
Hang your head in the edge of the storm;
You hear the children cry
And everybody seems to be yelling
But you can’t you see the words are all the same?
We sailed away…

Now, what is now?
Well I can’t even tell you,
Got to work it out somehow
Days, all these days
Just creep beneath the surface
To smack you in the face
Tides, hear the tides
Just moving back and forwards
To wash you out tonight
Night, in the night
Just stumble through the darkness
And don’t you look behind

And did you want to see me?
Well I see you all the time
I’m hanging on in edge of the storm
I cling on for my life
Now I can’t hear the words
But I see it clearly all the same
We sailed away…

We’re only laughing or crying,
That’s what you always say
Don’t tear your face from the tears in your eyes
The years can fade away
And now you say you seek solitude
Finally you hear the whispers say
We sailed away, on a fateful day
Track Name: 04 Nathan J Tillett - Celestine
She, she came to me
She took my hand, within a dream
She took me far, far away into the brightest light I've ever seen
Far, far away, Celestine
She, she spread her wings
She cut my cord, to earthly things
She flew me high above into a blissful void I've never been
High, high above, Celestine
She, she called me home
She left me changed, but not alone
She left a flame in my soul that will ever-burn my sorrows clean
Flame in my soul, Celestine
Track Name: 05 Looking-Glass Lantern - The Light Before
The light before was always brighter
The light before was something new
The light before had all the answers
The light before was all we knew

The light before would run forever
The light before would always shine
The light before had always been there
The light before gave so much time

The light before was fading slowly
The light before was passing through
The light before now shines forever
Lighting everything we do
Track Name: 06 Crystal Palace - Guarding The Spark
Once again we have to say "Good Bye"
And once again I´m gonna miss your, miss your smile
Once again our time flew by too fast
And once again the bliss just couldn´t last

Once again "check-in" comes much too soon
And memories are the gift that's in my bag
The light fades from my eyes as the plane turns west
To a place I once called home ... once called home

Never breaking apart
We're like children guarding a spark
You're the light in my heart

Never breaking apart
You're the candle that shines in the dark
Never breaking apart

The working week I suffer in a daze
Can't hardly wait for the week-end to come around
To take the east-bound flight .... back into your arms
To the place I now call home ... you're my home

Never breaking apart
We're like children guarding a spark
You're the light in my heart

Never breaking apart
You're the candle that shines in the dark
Never breaking apart


Breaking apart
Breaking apart

Whenever you hold me
The world stops to turn
Whenever you kiss me
The deeper I fall
Deeper I fall (in love)
Deeper I fall (in love ... with you)
Track Name: 07 Maze of Sound - Man in the Balloon
I cannot remember how I got inside. What is my mission?
There is a sky above me and a flame aside. I feel that I am rising.
I am flying slowly looking on the ground. I can be free.
I see crowds of robots walking all around in the prison of dreams.

I can spot the details in the warren space as I am passing high
People are devices ordered to survive in the modern world.

When I see them struggling for existence now, the balloon is trembling.
When I hear them shouting, devastating faith, I don’t want to land there.

They can’t find philosophy. Their brain is not alive – it’s artificial.
They respect stupidity, can’t discover lies. They feel no fear. They feel no fear.

When I see them struggling for existence now, the balloon is trembling.
When I hear them shouting, devastating faith, I don’t want to land there. No!

Suddenly the sunset stops the crowds below. They are so excited that they can’t walk.
They can see the light there that differentiates between good and evil, good and evil.
I don’t want to come back. It’s so beautiful. They can’t even say a thing. Can I fly? Keep it on.
For another fortune, I discover facts. I don’t want to be there, so let me escape!

When I see them struggling for existence now, the balloon is trembling.
When I hear them shouting, devastating faith, I don’t want to land there.
When I see them struggling… Yes, I do. When I hear them shouting …

I cannot remember how I got inside. What is my mission?
There is a sky above me and a flame aside. I feel that I am rising.
Track Name: 08 The Opposite of Hate - Made-up Reality
The picture frame on the bedside table
Holds a secret we cannot reveal
We don’t need to go through it all again
But if you want to know I’ll tell you how I feel
This is how I feel
I stopped asking the same old questions
But it may be hard to recover from that dream
I gave up believing - It’s a made up reality
Your concerns don’t go further than a coffee with no cream
I’m feeling tired and wishing for the day to end
I can’t wait to see that smile again
I used to keep my hopes under my hat
If only they knew what’s coming after the bend
The first cut put me down. I knew it would.
The second one came sooner. it took me by surprise.
The third one cut me deep. the scar still hurt.
But I’m stronger now
So many dreams interrupted for no reason
I tried to sell mine but no one wanted to buy
I still have my notes listing things I’d like to do
We don’t realise - let’s face it - time flies
It’s a made up reality
The first cut put me down. I knew it would.
The second one came sooner. It took me by surprise.
The third one cut me deep. The scar still hurt.
But I’m stronger now.
Track Name: 09 IT - Last Chance
So confused
Hearing the news.
Feeling abused...
And it goes on and on and on...

Capital crime
Robbing us blind
We’re falling behind
And it goes on and on and on...

Maybe the last chance to do or die?
Could be a last chance to wonder why?
Maybe a last chance to open our eyes?
Could be the last chance to say goodbye?

Vacant view
With nothing to do
So lost with you
And it goes on and on and on

It’s time to choose
Reject the ruse
We’ve got nothing to lose
And it goes on and on and on…
And it goes on and on and on…

“We must never ever let the NHS free from our grasp.
Because if we do, your future will be my past”
-Harry Leslie Smith-

Together, together…
Only we can change this fate

Together, together…
A million voices bearing reign

Together, together…
Can’t drown the sound for our future state

Together, forever …
Our lives and health, we must sustain.
Track Name: 10 Violent Attitude If Noticed - Blindness
The grass was green and soft
The blowing breeze was fresh
With clouds watching me
All my worries were long gone
But suddenly a big noise woke me up
And brought me back to hell
I could hear people screaming
I could hear children crying
There were buildings collapsing and someone asking for help
So off I went
I left my place
To offer help to those who were in need
The whole thing had began and the bloody game was on
But nobody asked to be part of it
"By this time the other blind inmates are fleeing in terror towards the smoke-filled corridors. FIRE ! They are shouting."
"Obviously, many of these blind inmates are being trampled under foot, pushed, jostled, this is the effect of panic. A natural effect."
Another bang took place
It came from somewhere else
When I found where it was I couldn't trust my eyes
I saw my home totally destroyed
Nobody survived and my loved ones where all there
The whole thing had began and the bloody game was on
All I wanted was to be part of it
"Then, to simplify matters, everything happened at once, the doctor's wife announced in a loud voice that they were free, the roof of the right wing collapsed with a terrifying crash, sending out flames on all sides, the blind inmates rushed into the yard, shouting at the top of their voices, some did not make it, they remained inside, crushed against the walls, others were trampled under foot and transformed into a formless, bloody mass, the fire that has suddenly spread will soon reduce all of this to ashes. The gate is wide open. The madmen escape."
Track Name: 11 Edison's Children - Haunted Memories
Thoughts of You
- Keep Haunting my Memory
See It Through

Fade to Blue

Nothing you could do…
- Still Haunts me Everyday
Close Your Eyes
- Fading deep into ambivalence
Taking Flight
- A Survivor of the Turbulence
Fade to White
- Hearken Back to the innocence
Hold on Tight
- No way I’m getting out of this

Sail Off To A Far Away Land…
I’m Begging You Please To Come And Take My Hand
We’ll Sail Across The Stormy Seas
To Escape This Haunted Memory

Welcome Back
- What The Hell Am I Doing Here?
Thunder Clap
- Spiraling Up in the Atmosphere
Fade To Black
- Approaching storm has turned severe
Feeling Trapped
- Get out of Dodge before my 7th year.

Sail Off To A Far Away Land…

Something I Said?
- Let’s just get this over with
Left for Dead
- I knew I’d never see you again
Fade to Red
- Feel the blood come rushing in
Softly Tread
- Taking shelter in a lion’s den
It’s For You
- Oh I really don’t know what to say
A ghostly Truth
- Just please make it go away
Fade From View
- An apparition of Reality
Thoughts of You
- You’re Just Another Haunted Memory…
