Track Name: In Time
Stop fooling child, you’ve many years before you. Many transitions to go through, nothings the same don’t you know.
That most of us here, have spent the whole of our lives, desperately trying to find, our ways back in time.
And letting it go, is not very hard to do. But it seems that only the few, find that they are able to.
You see time rambles on, taking us all in it’s arms. Cherishing your loved ones, and letting them pass on in their own time.
In their own time. In time, time, time, in their own time, in time, time, time.

Of all of my friends, some faces I will see again, and some aren’t around anymore, but that is a natural law.
There’ll be many more, but none like the one from before, I’ll remember his name evermore, though I’m letting his memory go and I’ll travel on.
In my own time, in time. In my own time, time. In my own time, time, in my own time, in time, time.

So on with the new, who’s telling what’s coming for you. Bring on the hard and the true, I shall not go looking for you even though I have half a mind to.
But we’ve all got work to do, and eternity to go through, in our own time, in time.
In our own time. Time. In time, time. In our own time, time. In time, time, time, time.
Track Name: Are You Listening
Are you listening? Focus on my voice. You weren’t given a choice. Are you Listening?

Are you suffering? In your great big concrete box. With body guards and locks. Are you suffering?

We didn’t have a choice, to make it through the fire and get home safe again.
We didn’t have a choice. Are you listening?

Have you heard enough? We’re repeating ourselves. A record for the shelf? Have you heard enough?

Have we seen it through? As far as it can go. The ending of the show. Have we seen it through?

We didn’t have a choice, to make it through the fire and get home safe again.
We didn’t have a choice. Are you listening?

Place your hand in mine. Let’s get out of here. We’ll run no more from fear. Place your hand in mine.

We didn’t have a choice, to make it through the fire and get home safe again.
We didn’t have a choice. Are you listening? Are you listening? Are you listening?
Track Name: Call On Spring
Endarkened days, long nights. Moon rays, sleep tight.
Sweetheart, baby. You'll know where to find me.

Call on spring, call on spring, sunshine I will bring,
Call on spring, call on spring, and knock at my door.
Turn out into the wasteland, give it all your love and walk that evening path with me.

Fateful night, deep fright, I can't find your little light.
Come see me, feel free to walk away, or live out your days...

Call on spring, call on spring, sunshine I will bring,
Call on spring, call on spring, and knock at my door.
Turn out into the wasteland, give it all your love and walk that evening path with me.

Call on spring, call on spring, sunshine I will bring,
Call on spring, call on spring, and knock at my door.
Turn out into the wasteland, give it all your love and walk that evening path with me. Walk that evening path with me. Walk that evening path with me.
Track Name: Take My Hand
You haven’t seen the falling stars.
You haven’t seen the tender plants.
You haven’t seen the love we made.
You haven’t seen the beauty fade.

You didn’t mean the hand you played.
You didn’t mean what came your way.
You didn’t mean to cheat and lie.
You didn’t mean bid me goodbye.

You haven’t seen what you are.
You haven’t seen your golden heart.
You haven’t known where to stand.
You didn’t take my hand.

You didn’t want to let me in.
You didn’t want to begin.
You didn’t want to walk your path.
You didn’t want to play your part.

You haven’t seen what you are.
You haven’t seen your golden heart.
You haven’t known where to stand.
You didn’t take my hand.

Instr.

You haven’t seen what you are.
You haven’t seen your golden heart.
You haven’t known where to stand.
You didn’t take my hand.
You haven’t taken my hand.
Track Name: Gentle Heart
Gentle heart, clever heart forgot to love, and waiting for...
Why did you leave your love behind? Come on home.

Warm breeze nourishes my, gentle rain replenishes my…
Soft skin is burning. You're part of it, somehow mixed up inside your…

Gentle heart, clever heart forgot to love, and waiting for...
Why did you leave your love behind? Come on home...

Graceful sunlight warms my body. Light on high doth shine upon me.
Decreating dark falsity, light that is somehow mixed up inside your…

Gentle heart, stupid heart forgot to love, and waiting for...
Why did you leave your love behind? Come on home...

(Instr.)

Gentle heart, regretful heart forgot to love, and waiting for...
Why did you leave your love behind? Come on home...
Track Name: Wash It Away
I am getting older, and time is moving faster, so soon I will meet my dying day.
The man who has kissed me, and our years of history, the unknown and the mystery’s going to wash it all away.

He isn’t mine to keep, and neither mine to seek, let the whole thing go and wash it all away.
Like the river in its path, moving slow or rushing fast, choicelessly my past will be washed away.

Like a flower that blooms once, in life’s enormous dace we will be washed away.
And once is all that’s needed on this joyus earth we’re breeded and then washed away.

I am getting older, and time is moving faster, so soon I will meet my dying day.
I give thanks for what was taken, apologies for what’s broken, take comfort friend we both shall meet so soon our dying day.

Like a flower that blooms once, in life’s enormous dace we will be washed away.
And once is all that’s needed on this joyus earth we’re breeded and then washed away.

Take comfort friend we both shall meet so soon our dying day.
We won’t bear our losses, but neither do we keep our gains.

Like a flower that bloomed once, in life’s enormous dance you were washed away.
And once was all that’s needed on this joyus earth was breeded and then washed away.

Take comfort friend we both shall meet so soon our dying day.
We won’t bear our losses, but neither do we keep our gains.
Track Name: In The Garden
In the garden where it rains. A smoky cascade.
Flashes flesh until it’s done. Oh, do you live like that? Are we done?

And all those words can’t create the freedom they seek.

In the garden inside where’s there’s rain. Standing smiling, soaking in pain.
You know it’s hard to get away, away, away. And yet it’s harder to stay.

Behaving free, and tied to the sky, the sky.

Instr.

And all those words won’t create the freedom they seek.
Behaving free, and tied to the sky, the sky.
Track Name: Blue Shade
Sitting in the blue-shade, by the things that you’ve made…
Alone like there’s no-one home and no-one come to my aid.

Blue Shade, come to me,
Blue Shade, run me.

Not mine to give, not mine to go, ever lost in wild snow.
No time for me, not time to go, sitting in this falling snow.
No time to be, nothing to know, take me out in falling snow.
Not mine to give, not mine to show, leave me out in freezing snow.

Sitting in the blue-shade, by the things that I’ve made.
Alone like there’s no-one home and no-one come to my aid.

Blue Shade, come with me.
Blue Shade, run me.

Not mine to live, not mine to mind, ever trying to unwind,
Sell your whole world for a dime, no more writing on the line.
Burn the books and you will find, no more peace and no more crime.
No more light for you to shine, giving up creating time.

Can’t try to be won’t try to know, give it up and end this show.
Can’t try to be won’t try to know, give it up and end this show.
Can’t try to be won’t try to know, give it up and end this show.
Can’t try to be won’t try to know, giving up this awful show.

Sitting in the blue-shade, by the things that we’ve made.
Alone like there’s no-one home and no-one come to my aid.

Blue Shade, comes with me.
Blue Shade, run me.
Track Name: The Presence
I sit here, centre stage. The audience, my call awaits.
The lights are low, there’s no-one here. Empty seats do not give ear.

Out the door, I peak into what is not yet known. I sit on the edge, and feel the presence.
To give away everything I own and to seek nothing but the presence.

Empty and vast it awaits me in the woods. Beyond the word, beyond the good.
A little secret I will tell you, as you gaze as the presence, it stares back at you.

Out the door, I peak into what is not yet known. I sit on the edge, and feel the presence.
To give away everything I own and to seek nothing but the presence.

There’s space in front, so vast, so full. And I watch reserved from a stage uneventful.
So timely now to appear, the closing bow, the end is near.

Out the door, I peak into what is not yet known. I sit on the edge, and feel the presence.
To give away everything I own and to seek nothing but the presence.
To give away everything I own and to seek nothing but the presence.
Track Name: Be Not Afraid To Die
Sweetly flies the bird, across a whirlwind sky. Bravely in the sky, and unafraid to die.
Slowly crawls the snail, eating as she goes. Leaving silver trails, carrying her home.

Happy swim the fish, schools of many swish.
Searching through the deep. Over water leap. Travelling as one.

Small the spider sits, upon my window sill. Weaving wonderful webs, catching what it will.
Children hold their hands, dig their toes in sand. Feeling wind on skin, finding warmth within.

Older grow the young, seeking what’s beyond.
And in their search can miss, the bird the snail and fish, the early morning sun.

So heed our simple birds, face amazing sky.
Don’t be fooled by words, be not afraid to die. Be not afraid to die.
