QUESTIONS (Part 1) Floating in a universe that unifies all time Searching for the other souls whose rhythm matches mine Living life as fully as a fool who’s full of wine I raise my arms and rise above, the city shining bright I dance into a trance upon the trail of time so tightly Wound about an angel’s doubt, I doubt she does this nightly Capturing another soul, I wonder why they fight me Reasoning with reason, my reasons rise so rightly They sit upon the summit, as balanced as a budget And gather dust my reasons rust, eventually they plummet Until they’re spinning in a pit of every moment’s mortal master Where I’ll find myself confronted by an angry alabaster Statue that speaks softly of the kindness that I cast her And as I reach my fastest speed, my mind is running faster As it charges back through time to change what choice was made And paved with plaster Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind Dancing to the melody of a deity divine Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind Dancing to the melody of a deity divine When I enter dreams I’ve dreamt, through the sunless seasons I find myself within a cage surrounded by my reasons And as they overcome my shields the clouds they seem so loud I watch my voice defeat my choice above the cheering crowd Then the hangman signals and I’m dangling by a knot Just thinking to myself - is this really what I’ve sought? My life was led for living, was it for this I fought? The hand my fondest friend did lend, the hand that got me caught Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind Dancing to the melody of a deity divine Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind Dancing to the melody of a deity divine Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind As I dance into a trance decidedly divine Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind As I dance into a trance decidedly divine

I Know That 05:52
I KNOW THAT Building equals burning Aiding means enslaving Propagating equals lying Multiplying means more dying Weighing equals seeing Sacrificing equals feeling Starving equals yearning Thinking equals learning I know that Tell me how to live With all that I know that Come and help me breathe When I’m mad Poverty bears frustration Misery breeds desperation Business means assassination Conclusion spells illusion I know that Tell me how to live With all that I know that Can you help me breathe When I’m mad I know that Tell me how to live With all that I know that Come on help me breathe When I’m mad

THE HYPOCRACY OF AUTHORITY They demand that the people be disarmed All the while surrounded by armed guards They get rich from insider info Do what they do and off to jail you go They say gold is a barbarous relic Don’t look now, but I think the dollar’s sick They plan our lives to the smallest fraction But forget about the force of human action It’s a welfare-warfare state With a populace sedate But I have hope I have to say ‘Cause more awaken every day So get off your boredom binge And come join the lunatic fringe The hypocrisy of authority Such a sight to see, what futility! The super successful societies Have always been the ones with liberty The hypocrisy of authority Such a sight to see, what futility! The super successful societies Have always been the ones with liberty They turn truths into conspiracies I call them facts but they call them theories Their plans may hurt or they may be so tame Throughout it all you know the planners are the same They want control, they want to watch our every move Get out of line, you’ll have your innocence to prove They get their votes through handouts and deceit They’ll come undone through their own fatal conceit The hypocrisy of authority Such a sight to see, what futility! The super successful societies Have always been the ones with liberty The hypocrisy of authority Such a sight to see, what futility! The super successful societies Have always been the ones with liberty

RUNNING OUT OF WARNINGS Time has come to get past the clock Stop all the senseless talk Head on Look away from the consequence Under a false pretense No more I’m running out of warnings The other side is calling me Isn’t it ironic? I get to meet my maker She is like the morning Radiant and glowing Reaching out to draw me Away from all this make-up Future plans and present signs Are like looking back in time In the end Just the way when reaching out Means reaching deep inside To repent Truth that's told with bad intent Beats all lies you can invent Like elixir it heals My body and soul And as I come to terms with this I emerge from the abyss And my spirit enfolds me To carry me home I’m running out of warnings The other side is calling me Isn’t it ironic? I get to meet my maker She is like the morning Radiant and glowing Reaching out to draw me in Away from all this make-up I’m running out of warnings The other side is calling me Isn’t it ironic? I get to meet my maker She is like the morning Radiant and glowing Reaching out to draw me in Away from all this make-up

FIRE OF MY FLIGHT You are the wind of my wave You are the drops in my cave You are the stone of my mile You are the breath and the smile You are the bone of my spine You are the glow of my wine You are the light of my dance And the dime of my chance Be the fire of my flight Beyond the day that we die Be the king and the slave Let your kingdom be safe You are the stick of my pool You are the lamb of my wool You are the Jack of my hand You are the shell of my sand You are the swoosh of my sword You are the vibe of my cord You are the yes and the no You are the best that I know Be my meaningful past Be my future at last Be the life that we draw Be the sip of my straw You’re my all… You’re my all… You are my life and my dream You’re my all… Everything to me Be the fire of my flight Beyond the day that we die Be the king and the slave Let your kingdom be safe

Fire Dancer 04:08
FIRE DANCER You give me the money I give you my heart I give you my soul while I’m at it (And) even that is not enough You think that you got me You think that you won But deep down inside you know That all I am is wry and numb You got all the answers (But) they don’t mean a thing They’re empty as banter For someone to cling But I am a dancer Bursting with fire You hide in the shadows Concealing your past Your smug and pretentious manners Will surely always pass Everything’s clear For you all the time As long as they march behind you And reach the bottom line You got all the answers (But) they don’t mean a thing They’re empty as banter For someone to cling But I am a dancer Burning with fire You got all the answers You do what it takes You make your advances No matter the stakes But I am a dancer Blowing out fire

TALK TALK TALK Talk talk talk talk talk talk talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk Let the phone pick up ‘Couse I don't wanna talk I'd rather go for a walk Down to the park with my dog So you can leave me a message And I'll get Rex to fetch it And bury it in a whole Along with his bone I just want to forget it Because I don't need the headache So please leave me alone I need some time on my own I made a conscious decision I'm not part of your vision Go back to your television It's not like Jesus has risen I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk Yeah, you can pass me by You don't need to say hi This time we just move along Like the smoke from your bong It was a natural occurrence But I got no more endurance So just consider it through It's not me, it is you I just want to forget it Because I don't want the headache So please leave me alone I need some time on my own I made a conscious decision I'm not part of your vision Go back to your television It's not like Jesus has risen I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk Blah-blah-blah-blah Blah-blah-blah Blah-blah-blah-blah Blah-blah-blah Shut-up! I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk

AT WATER’S EDGE At water’s edge I drift to sleep At water’s edge I wake My only thought is thinking that My thoughts will overtake My sanity, my sanity Encapsuled in a spiral Colored crimson remnant Of falsified denial Reason battles reason Across a desert full Of purity, of purity Held behind a wall I know that I could climb it I know I would not fall But how pure is the purity That doesn’t heed my call? At water’s edge I’m dreaming Of the things I should have said Unspoken words that haunt me Drowning at the water’s edge Perhaps it’s just illusion I see things that aren’t there But what I saw in your eyes Was enough to make me care Expectations falter (I am at your feet) Disappointments rise (I am at your feet) Something deep within me (I am at your feet) Does destroy me as it dies (I am at your feet) Looking in the mirror Of the water on the sand Perhaps I just imagined That I’m better than I am It wouldn’t be the first time It sure won’t be the last That I pander to my ego And watch purity go past In some imagined future At water’s edge I stand Asking you to join me Reaching out my hand No matter how I want you No matter how I try You will never answer I can only wonder why Expectations falter (I am at your feet) Disappointments rise (I am at your feet) Something deep within me (I am at your feet) Does destroy me as it dies (I am at your feet)

ANOTHER MOMENT Another moment and what you hold is gone Another moment and you're all alone A single moment is all it takes to blow Away forever everything you know Such a long time since I thought this way I thought I got it but I got caught in the fray As if tomorrow never came my way And yesterday was light years away Another moment is standing in your way It's like a dirt road, dry and hard, a fork ahead Another moment and we start again From the beginning, one more time, the end Take a deep breath now and look ahead Here we are in the moment So many moments never ever count And then there comes one and turns everything around Such a long time since I thought this way I thought I got it but got caught in the fray As if tomorrow never came my way And yesterday was light years away Such a long time since I thought this way I thought I got it but I got caught in the fray As if tomorrow never came my way And yesterday was light years away

Moon Man 04:36
MOON MAN On a starry night When the Earth’s retired I just stare at the blinking light Of the atmosphere Out there yet near No, I never wished to disappear It was a big mistake To put the Globe at stake Back then it was an easy choice to make Now I see the pain Colouring the space With a tint of onus and despair How a wish that in the morning I wake up to another me For I’m drifting like a loner In the endless Galaxy I was blinded by Anger I have learned To reassign to the passer-by The anxiety And pang inside of me Drove me out from society I had to kill the pain In every walking man Draw it out from every human’s breath I’m a modern man Arrogant and mad I destroy everything I can How a wish that in the morning I wake up to a different world A Universe without me But that day’s still yet come So I look up every morning Down there at the world below And I hope to see it glowing But I am still all alone How a wish that in the morning I wake up to another me For I’m drifting like a loner In the endless Galaxy How a wish that in the morning I wake up to another me For I’m drifting like a loner In the endless Galaxy How a wish that in the morning I wake up to a different world A Universe without me But that day’s still yet come So I look up every morning Down there at the world below And I hope to see it glowing But I am still all alone

QUESTIONS (Part 2) When I enter dreams I’ve dreamt, through the sunless seasons I find myself within a cage surrounded by my reasons And as they overcome my shields the clouds they seem so loud I watch my voice defeat my choice above the cheering crowd Then the hangman signals and I’m dangling by a knot Just thinking to myself - is this really what I’ve sought? My life was led for living, was it for this I fought? The hand my fondest friend did lend, the hand that got me caught Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind As I dance into a trance decidedly divine Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind As I dance into a trance decidedly divine Is the hand that pulls the lever the binding bond I bought? Was this the train of thought of which a prophet would have taught? The answers spiral slowly spinning towards me through the haze And as the answers answer all those riddles in my maze I sense my soul is rising, fading faintly far from rage And as I leave this world behind remembering what’s lost Quietly a question comes, so at your feet it’s tossed Sure we’ve got it all, we’ve got it all, but at what cost? Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind As I dance into a trance decidedly divine Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind As I dance into a trance decidedly divine Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind As I dance into a trance decidedly divine Questioning the parallel that perpetrates my mind As I dance into a trance decidedly divine
