Well, you know

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

Who am I, in the hollow of your eye
Just a figment, a drunkards lie
Who are you, by the stars and the moon
The one in exile, the one who leaves the room

Quiet days, when nothing moves
The river’s slow, and the sun looks old
Well, you know, my love…

Say you went down to the shore
read the clouds, a prophet, and a liar
say you tried, to hold back the tides,
with one look from your lighthouse eyes

Quiet days, when nothing moves
The river’s slow, and the sun looks old
Well, you know, my love…

Man and beast, above and below
The same voice, preaching to the choir
The tiny things, left behind
Against the sea, against the starless sky

Quiet days, when nothing moves
The river’s slow, and the sun looks old
Well, you know, my love…

Levitation

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Here are the lyrics to one of the songs that will be on the upcoming album. Music to be posted soon…

Levitation

Tell me who you are, I’ll tell you what I see
A leaf in the storm, torn from the tree
The skin on your back, the rock of ages cracked
The strangers in the street, their eyes that never meet

Levitation
Strange and wonderful things
Ignite the dawn

The masters and the slaves, the soldiers in their graves
The wolves at your door, this hunger in us all
What the northwind says, when it whispers of the dead
The elemental rage, the lion walks the cage

Levitation
Strange and wonderful things
Ignite the dawn

The children in the yard, each will play their card
The old man in his room, between the bride and her groom
You get pulled into the ground, get seduced by the sound
Of the ordinary lives, of the husbands and the wives

Levitation
Strange and wonderful things
Ignite the dawn
