Track Name: Close To The Sun
close to the sun

sleepless child
what makes you wonder
the streets at night
pulling you under
sheets of insatiable stars
like a farewell to you

a cinder smile for everyone
wasting away your time
until the prime of the day
this upheaval to carry your mind away

don’t get to close to the sun

sleepless child
what makes you wonder
as seasons change
go ahead and blunder on
yearning for reasonable doings
to call your own

since that day
you have been circling
through echoes and pathways
a maze of perception
wake up and see how your worries
are all but gone

don’t get to close to the sun
Track Name: The Dark
the dark

will you take the call
how to make a person stop
ruining their lives
they've already given up
when things get out of hand
will you be the one in control
can't you see the train a-rolling
and the night it will be lit
to see us all unfit
to cope with the dark

grand me just one wish
it ain't hard to understand
as i'm trying to save this place
bring peace to every man
there's hope to build me up
until i'm giving all i can
will be doing it again
and the night can do no harm
to the arc that is our heart
as we head on...
Track Name: Like An Open Book
like an open book

free like an open book to read
you cannot hide
fighting whatever the cause
might not be wise
to savor some new kicks and raid this life

just as i thought a glimpse would do
you disappeared
to wave across the room
into the color-blinding light
where everybody keeps their hands on tight

thanks to your heart that lets us dance
across the sky
we can easily embrace
the long forgotten days
and make them paint our yesterdays goodbye

seems in a million different ways
and in a million different sayings
you can have it all your way
so try try try
to stay ahead
long time coming

wave across the room
to disappear
into the color-blinding light
you shine

free like an open book to read
Track Name: Light Flight
light flight

let's get away, you say, find a better place,
miles and miles away from the city's race,
look around for someone lying in the sunshine
marking time, hear the sighs, close your eyes

stepping from cloud to cloud passing years of light
visit the frosty stars in the backward flight
star becomes a vision, never mind the meaning,
hidden there, moving fast, it won't last

time passes all too soon, how it rushes by,
now a thousand moons are about to die
no time to reflect on what the time was spent on,
nothing left, far away, dreamers fade

strange visions pass me by,
winging sweetly close inside
over the water

swirling, the waters rise up above my head.
gone are the curling mists how they all have fled
look, the door is open, step into the space provided there
Track Name: Yes I Do
yes i do

what’s inside
let it collide
let dawn run from
an endless night
can’t see straight
been infiltrated
like all hell
broke loose today
and left us in
a candid apathy

a fictional spin
from a world within
within your reach
a flaming skin
covering things
withering gist
all worthwhile
what could have been
the one safe place
come along
i’ll show you in

yes i do
yes i do
Track Name: This Sort Of Situation
this sort of situation

this sort of situation
an unfilled but enlightened feel
won't come without closure
but the ordinary aspects of me
fell right into place
with what i had to face

elusive yet full on impact
an abyss i refer to as home
swallowed by a deep blue ocean
let the waves of now carry me on to where
i can evade this thing remained unnamed

i designed this heart for you
pick it up and stop this hesitation
no this life's not been untrue
thinking about that you
could always love me, now

i gotta stay straight on the way
i gotta go where i don't know

i designed this heart for you
pick it up and stop this hesitation
no this life's not been untrue
thinking about that you
could always love me, now
Track Name: Solitary
solitary

this might be the place might be the time
when I decide to let it all go

golden streams of sunlight hit my eye
and i decide to let it all go

skies exhale remembrance over pride
but it is now for me to let go

no holding back, no taking aside
here and now I want to let go

solitary as I´m all by myself
solitary as I´m all by myself

nowhere in the world I´d rather be
fading edge of a hidden cause

within this pure and circling thoughts I´d be
fading prey of a secret flood

sleepless nights now turned to greater wake
making place for what´s to come

a tongue-taught sense of self to slip away
should have known it all along

solitary as I´m all by myself
solitary as I´m all by myself
Track Name: Round Again
round again

you remind me of someone i once knew
someone left to search a heart to fade into
i don’t mind to recall
could have been me after all

a fleeting glance holding us in awe inside
so to weigh a troubled soul to be at times
one of a kind
just becaue...

but i don’t want to
take this out on you
don’t you wonder why
days like these must fade

try to seek the strength in me to hold on to
stumbling through leaves and thorns and do-no-good
sorry eyes learn to talk
saddened on an endless walk

you came to find some time
and play this crooked dream
that’s never been yours or mine
but hardening feels like healing

here we go round again
here we go round again

but i don’t want to
take this out on you
don’t you wonder why
days like these must fade

here we go round again
here we go round again
Track Name: Merry-Go-Round
merry-go-round

sun coming up
finds me on my way out of town
dawn just lit a spark
wheeling thoughts on a merry-go-round

for all i can tell
must be your call pulling strings now
ties me to this wave
of whatever comes uphold it somehow

bound to an easy state of mind
you know that we will find a way
to get on by on by

now the books been closed
all the rallying cries and beating is done
old songs been replaced
ringing in my head for a last time

bound to an easy state of mind
you know that we will find a way
to get on by on by
