Track Name: Everynight
EVERYNIGHT

Every night when I come home
A ghost stares at the phone
And the dust greets me from above
The sediment of what I have become
Every night I watch you all
Every day I know
Every night when I come home
Shadows start to grow
And the sun that stings from the west
Silhouettes you
My hungry eyes retract
Afraid the shadow's true
Afrid of fading too
Every night hear a rusty hinge
Make a sound of the dead below
Every night when my mind kicks in
The hands of time are ticking, won't let go
And like the dream in the silhouette
When the masquerading cabbage said,
"Well look at you, won't you look at you
Just 'cuz you have a head
you think you're always set to know..."
[Stop]
Every night try to walk away
But hands of time just pull me back again
Every night at the appointed time
The calling mind won't go
Every day in the same old way
It's the sound of winding down
My starving ears react to the unrelenting howl
Every night come crawling in on your hands
From where I don't know
Every night with the monster lens
Steal a photograph of my soul
Every night with the six-inch heels
Strut strug right into my room
Every night feel the hands of time
Turn me back to the naked gloom
Oh I don't know, oh I don't know...
Track Name: Feel the Radiation
FEEL THE RADIATION

When I was only just a sweet tired young thing
You were like the warmest fire
I sat on your shoulder
I sat by your side
And I said,
"Oh, no, hear the radiation
Coming closer from all five sides
No, no, feel the situation
I don't ever wanna kiss you goodbye"
goodbye...
You were merely just a saviour
Seemed to me like the grooviest guy
It was only very much later
I caught a look at your secret side
And I said,
"No, no, I won't see the radiation
It can't be such a dangerous high
No, no, reject the situation
I don't ever wanna kiss you goodbye"
goodbye...
When I was only just a sweet tired young thing
You took the dew from my eyes
I sat on your shoulder
I silently prayed you wouldn't leave me behind
Oh, no, feel the radiation
Coming at you from all five sides
No, no, erase the information
I don't ever wanna kiss you goodbye
Oh, no, feel the radiation
It can't be such a dangerous high
No, no, reject the situation
I don't wanna have to kiss you goodbye
goodbye...
Track Name: A Curse of Miracles
A CURSE OF MIRACLES

In the streets, yeah
I was drifting through the lanes
In the streets, baby
Everybody looked away
In the streets
I felt tension and afraid
In the back of my head
I feel terribly dead
Friday afternoon
Came a rustling from the room
I was strangely terrified
By the things I heard inside
Then a voice so strong and loud
Said, "It could be yours by now"
Saturday at 4
I snuck back to the corridor
And slipped into the room
Now I'm quiet as a tomb
And there written on the ground
In dust, "It should be yours by now"
And t's so strange
'Cuz in the back of my head
I still feel terribly dead
So just go away
Leave me chained to the wall
Just like you've done it before
Everyone knows that it's my regular show
Is my deliverance near?
I don't see it, I don't hear
Where's the trumpets blowing fire
And the angel-hosted choir?
I keep waiting for the sound
'Cuz it should be here by now
It should be here by now
But there's no change
In the back of my head
The monster wants to be fed
And I can't get away
'Cuz when you've done it before
What's it matter once more
Everyone knows that it's your regular show...
Once upon a time
In the blinking of an eye
The oracle was mine
Like the sage had prophesied
It was whispered through the clouds
Said, "It will be yours right now"
Track Name: Kiteman
KITEMAN

I know a boy who ached to touch the sky
All his life he tried to rise
And through the years he made a solemn vow
To reach the light and bring it down
Oh the kiteman fly his kite so high
Far up in the sky at night...
With string and dreams he sent his message high,
"If only I could likewise fly
I'd pass above the very stratosphere
Without a tear or care inside."
Oh the kiteman fly his kite so high
Far up in the sky at night
Oh the kiteman fly his kite so high
High up in the sky, goodnight
And the wind and the kite
In the moonlight he rides, he rides
[There he goes]
I know a boy who couldn't stand the ground
And always he was skyward bound
The saddest thing is he's up there now,
But all he says is he wants to come down
"I want to come down now"
Oh the kiteman fly, the kiteman fly
Far up in the sky at night
Oh the kiteman fly his kite so high
Way up in the sky...
Far up in the sky
And the wind and the kite
In the moonlight he rides, he rides
He cries,
"Please, I want to come down now
Please, mother, I want to come down now
Please, I want to come down now..."
Track Name: Wily Creilly
WILY CREILLY

Wily Creilly was inside me
Painting pictures, telling stories
All about the world outside
All about the things he might have been
If he had bones and skin
Wily Creilly cried inside me,
"Please don't hide me, just unbind me
Let me have just one small day
To operate your body
Let me play
And I will be okay"
The stars are out tonight
The birds in sacred flight
And here am I
Leashed and restrained
Not even walked
I'm in pain, I'm in pain...
Wily Creilly cried inside me,
"Please don't hide me, just untie me
Let me have just one small day
To occupy your body
Don't Delay
I promise I'll behave"
Wily Creilly, you surprise me
Did you think I was so easy?
What's to stop you running away?
No, I think it's better
You should stay
In the box I made
"I despise you, I will destroy you
And I will always be inside you
You can never get away
I will have you rue this very day
I'll make you pay."
Track Name: Beyond the Shadow of Doubt
BEYOND THE SHADOW OF DOUBT

[Look what we've done
We've raised the stakes
The serpent has come
Oh, I feel it now
As surely as the shadow Of an owl]

Stole the raven into my sweet dreams
Like a cloud coming down
Disturbed my slumber like some kind of fiend
Rising up from the ground
And the signs will lead us in time
Will lead us in time...
Don't leave us behind
Just lead is in time
In time
Angels stormed through my mind like a swarm
Rushing in from the rain
A chorus calling, the voice so appalling
Predicts a great change
And in time the omens divine
Emerge from behind
To burst from the mind
Reveal the design
To lead us in time, lead us in time
Towards the sublime
Just lead us in time
In time
[10, 9, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 1]
And the signs will lead us
In time lead us
And time will lead us
In time lead us...
Look
What we've done
We've raised the stakes
The Serpent has come
There
Can't you see?
The cards reflect it most emphatically
Oh, I feel it now
As surely as the shadow of an owl
What can we do?
Imperilled is the paradise to doom
Oh, so many trees
Like lovers' lips locked eternally
But wait
Beware the saws
They're scratching out the forest with their claws
Time will lead us in time...
Track Name: Ghostforest
GHOSTFOREST

[No one moves, the rain won't come now...]

Panic, kerosene
By the side, gasoline
And the story goes
They left you here
And we'll never knkow
Why they disappeared
Smoking
Oh forest
You are choking
There's a rope around you
There's a sinking sense of knowing that you're going
There's a crater down where
Deep inside there's nowhere
[No one moves the rain won't come now]
The rain won't save you
There's a can of kerosene
From this legendary ghostly scene
It will always be there
While the trees are moving violently
Slaughter in the corner of my mind's dream
We are choking
Look to the sun...
There is a memory of you
Look to the sun...
There isn't much that you can do
Look to the sun
Owls burning
Fire swirling crown
Squirrels try to reach the ground
Walking in twos
What could they do?
Smoking
The trees are moving violently
Echoes of the footsteps of the arsonies
They will always be there
Is it lonely forest
Is it only for us walking now
Is it lonely forest
Is it only that we wake you
From the slumber of your deep misery
Look to the sun...
There is a restless forest
Look to the sun...
Isn't it wild, isn't it fun
When you've begun to look to the sun
There isn't much that you can do
Look to the sun...
Track Name: Universally
UNIVERSALLY

[Now is the time I choose to go
It is my time I know
For a voyage like a dream
From the days spent you and me]
Yes I have, yes I heard, yes I know
You must go
Yes I love you, yes I'll always be your friend
Through the grave
So I take you out to sea, ashes for the universe
Universally...
Now you are free
Where am I now?
Baby a rain came tonight
And it seemed you'd returned
Down the river's way
Baby I'm running from the room
I get right inside the garden
Try to find you, try to find you
I wander to the ground, to the ground
My soil, it is you
Our garden stems from you, from you
My soil, you are true
I garner strength to carry on from you
My soil, my bloom
From sea you flew
To mist from sky
Your kiss arrived
And so
The awareness of you
In the darkness
Gets me high
My heart
In the darkness
Gets me through
In the darkness
Gets me high
In the darkness...
Track Name: Come Out Tonight
COME OUT TONIGHT

It's all the same, we're all alone in our heads
We're all the same when we're lying in our graves
Maybe I see no questions
Search for the wrong answer now
Maybe goodbye, maybe good night
Wondering why
Maybe I ask by asking
Maybe I see the task before me
Looking inside, everyone's right
Opening wide
Maybe I ask the questions now
Search for a long long answer how
Giving good vibe, giving good night
Opening out, opening wide
Maybe I see the questions
Maybe I see the answers
Maybe I look for something more
Watching the waves roll
Watching the garden springs
Looking for fireflies
Maybe they're fluttering
Looking inside for reasons
that there may never be
Maybe it's quite enough to be
Just looking for you as you look for me
Look for me...
Looking inside...
Maybe the stars are opening wide
Looking inside...
Stars come out, opening wide
Looking inside...
There are locks yet to try
Looking inside...
There's a crater through your eyes
Looking inside...
There's a star wandering wide
Wandering light, wandering white
Under the black, under the night
Come out tonight...
Looking inside...
The stars come out tonight
Come out tonight
The stars go out tonight
Go out tonight
The stars, they're moving
Moving out tonight
The stars, they're moving
Come out tonight
