Track Name: Home Movies
HOME MOVIES

Maybe you should open you eyes
Since you can’t face what you see anymore
A reel of home movies unwinds inside
An endless loop from then to now, back again
What to do with all this time
While others go on making the world turn
Stuck with what you don’t want to see
There’s nothing left for you but self-pity
One last dance, your last smile
Now just a still with a date printed below
Getting smaller in the rearview mirror
You’re waving goodbye but I can’t get out
What to do with all this time
Whenever these visions come you can call
Stuck with what you don’t want to see
I see you turn around and walk, walk away

The guilt of letting go, the fear of being left behind
The pain of letting go, the fear of missing the train
Did I leave, did I leave or did you stay behind

To live in denial’s just fine
Until the day you find
Buried under a pile
Forgotten handwritten lines
So sit alone on the kitchen-floor
And cry your eyes out

The guilt of letting go, the fear of being left behind
The pain of letting go, the fear of missing the call
Who’s trying to tell you what exactly are you missing
Did I leave, did I leave or did you stay behind
Track Name: Longing For The Word
LONGING FOR THE WORD

I’m longing for the word
As I wear my weakness on my sleeve
Make me a promise
I could believe when I’m on my knees…who knows
Do I have to crawl, if so then I will right now
Without thinking twice, I’ve got no more use for pride

I’m longing for your word
Yeah, you out there, whoever you are
I must go for a while, go on a search for all I’ve lost…who knows
If we have to kiss then come on, I need it now
A new dream just might hurt but I mean well

Waiting for the storm to drown away my scars
Now is all we’ve got, to live what could be, everything that never was

Maybe some day,
Maybe some day,
Track Name: My Private Eclipse
MY PRIVATE ECLIPSE

Bright afternoon, cheering crowd
Floats drive by, music is loud
Everybody's dancing
Everybody's laughing
Scorching daylight, dream this day
Join the parade with no eye-contact
Ghosts walk in slow-motion
I sleepwalk through the action
Never felt so invisible

See heaven's playground
Expand in the clearing
Or is it hell reaching-out
To catch you next morning

Sunburnt landscape
No face in the crowd
Visions flicker
The mirage has expired

Dark afternoon, cheering crowd
dark afternoon, cheering crowd
In my private eclipse...
Track Name: The Bow Is Drawn
THE BOW IS DRAWN

Everyday
On our way to God knows where
That's ok
We're just waiting for our cue
I'll play my role
With this hand I've been dealt
On a roll
Evacuating this old pain

Yeah,yeah,
Another day alive
The bow is drawn
Now let the arrow fly

I don't know
How many lives we've got
That's ok
I only need one anyway
Chase that light
Anywhere, can't be dark forever

Yeah, yeah
Another day alive
The bow is drawn
Now I'm flying high
Way above the city lights
Who's knows just where I'm headed
Just the road itself is worth my while

*spoken
Not sure just what it means or where it leads at all
Create, grow then destroy
I know it's time to start again so I run and run in circles
Until I find myself


Yeah, yeah
Another day alive
The bow is drawn
Now I'm flying high
Way above the city lights
Who's knows just where I'm headed
Just the road itself is worth my while
Track Name: The Devil's Smile
THE DEVIL'S SMILE

Sit on a chair on a beach
Black-eyed, white faced
Stay still with hands on your knees
Lips tightly shut
Give me that asking stare
From deep, deep under

I see a mother's eyes
In great silence
As cold as the devil's smile

Show me wild clues in a dream
Grey beach, brown water
Draw the ten of spades every hand
Locked-in and lost
Lightning strikes the child dead
Abandoned on the barren land

I see a mother's eyes
In great silence
Ice-cold while the devil smiles
I see your eyes bleed black
Meanwhile the devil's mask slowly falls
I see your eyes bleed black
Meanwhile the last face they met
Dissolves into the devil's smile
