Track Name: Finding Our Way Home
The ground weakens beneath our feet
Cold earth hidden from sunlight
Footsteps in the snow 
Now our only guide

A weightless transformation
Erasing the footsteps behind us 
Swallowing the hunger and fear
Often we had gone this way before

But now we are lost... Now we are lost
Now everything has changed
But it seems we never could be
And never had been anyplace else for very long

We had one single memory a song in our heads
A song of the day that was done
A song about home
...Home

They welcomed us somehow from somewhere far away
Within the mist and the calm
Leading us home
Something familiar and pleasant yet strange to us came
Whose gentle will has changed our fate
Stand with me just a little longer as we find our way home

We follow our faint heartbeats
And the cold breath in front of us
Falling down, crawling... Sleeping... Dreaming
And then we are gone

Then we are gone
Track Name: The Air Below The Water
The air below the water
The sky beneath the sea 
Waist deep in the tide, I let them take me deeper
I let them take me deeper

Ferried to a darker calm, Within an endless of knowing
Dream fragments gifted from sentient idols
And crafted into supernatural machines

The air below the water
The sky beneath the sea 
The dead water savors the salt
Drink deep from the ocean's briny basin
Take my hand, as we drift into water dreaming

Aurora's tune echoes through the waves 
Played on ancient pipes a ghostlike trance leads us 
Beneath the sun drenched tides

The air below the water
The sky beneath the sea 
The light slowly disappearing 
Leaving invisible traces as we drift away
Track Name: So Far Away
So far away
I can never touch you
So far away
Into the void I let you go

Think of a day with no sun
A bond unbroken, yet severed by time
Calling on sentient souls
To find what has been lost

Isolation blurs
Let me find you again
Follow the sound of my voice
Echoing the dreams and memories we shared

So far away
Out of my grasp
Trapped inside the mirror
But still, so far away

Let me find you
Touch you
So follow the sound of my voice
Track Name: Metamorphosis
I am one... and then I am two
And then we are three  
Flesh and bone to sand and stone
Stone to sand... to Earth and air
And then to water  

Shape and color of the sky
Free to fly, and wish.... and dream
To transform.. to become
I unravel, I dissolve... I remember

My face outlined in the stars
Becoming the night, becoming the stillness
A chill in the air, a breath in the light
I transform... I become... Something else
Someone new 

Today into tomorrow
Tomorrow into never
Never into when... and then
Then into now, and over again
Fibers in glass, weaving
Knowing all that is to come
And still remembering nothing

Tears to brine, to salt and wine
Hold me close, but lightly
Something more... Something less

Breathing groans collected in the fog
Sounds to song, and words to air
A wIndless night, with steadily streaming lights
We sing to the stars

Trees sinking, bleeding bark to the grass
Ever changing, evolving, becoming crystal chandeliers
Deep in the hallow, a single child's voice
Calling, crying... Singing
Disappearing in the arms of tomorrow's light
And yesterday's garden

Lustrous gleaming shapes
Paint themselves in the night time breeze
Three shapes inside me... Moving... Dreaming
And then we are two... And then I am one
I transform
I become… Again
Track Name: Closer To The Sun
Time flowing backwards
Ancient rhymes whisper farewell
To the last glimpse of a sunlit world
Descending into yesterday

A golden tapestry stitched into clouds
Radiant and beckoning, waves reflecting
Glimmering on the shore,
Balanced only by the weight of the sky

If I climb the tallest tree
To reach the highest branch
Higher, and higher until I can reach the sky
I can almost touch the sun

Rolling waves crash upon my feet
The warm sand caressing me, holding me
The power of the sea
Falling down, deeper
Covered in beaming sunlight

If I climb the tallest tree
To reach the highest branch
Higher, and higher until I can reach the sky
I can almost touch the sun

Remember when we were young
Innocence held close by the thinnest threads
Arms outstretched, faces glowing
We could almost touch the sun
The rays fall around me
Pushing me down into yellow grass and heavy air
Track Name: The Cleansing
Water covers water, shimmering
Streams like fingers flowing
Washing away stone and earth
Shapeless, formless, voiceless
Starting anew

The current below washing over me
Rinsing away the stains from my body
to once again renew it's splendor

The day is gone
We leave our light behind in vain
The stains remain
We wait again for another cleansing.

Youthful sounds growing faint
They vanish
Silent, forgotten

I spread my arms wide to take hold of the world
The warmth and strength I feel for a moment
Taking me under 
Drowning me 
Making me invisible again
Thus begins my cleansing

The day is gone
We leave our light behind in vain
As the stains remain
We wait again for another cleansing.
An unstained paradise awaits
Dream of me one last time 
I’ll take your tears, clean and pure 
And wait again for another cleansing
