Track Name: Know Your Day Is Coming
Verse 1
The trouble with playing this victim game
Is you believe you have no power
So you deny your self wisdom to change how you choose
When you decide you have had enough. Is that you?

Verse 2
The problem with a mind that can't move on
Is all you get is more of the same
But in the end there is no one to blame / shame
It's up to you how much you prolong. It's your call

Chorus
Sense the sun a rising
Feel the fog a clearing
Hear the birds a singing
Know your day is coming soon

Verse 3
And in the morning you will feel alright
When you arise you'll see things diff'rent
You simply have to open up your eyes / realise
For believe you me all things change when you wake

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Checking My Hands
Verse 1
When ev'rything is said and done
This is a great adventure
Though we may be part of the one
We so embrace illusion

Verse 2
When ev'rybody takes their place
We stage a great production
Then we suspend our disbelief
Because it serves the mission

Chorus
Everyday I'm checking my hands - do they look okay?
Every night I'm living my dreams - am I asleep now?
Does it matter?

Verse 3
When ev'ryone is lost and found
It's been a great adventure
Because we know it deep inside
No body really dies

Repeat Chorus

Track Name: Dark And Light

Try to see
It's all in you
The dark and light

People lying
And there's always some
Who swing both ways

People dying
All the while we try
To hide our fears

Verse 1
And as I fade
Will you forgive
Still celebrate the dreams we lived

When I forget
Will you stay near
So to remind me who we were?

Chorus
But this dream is over
It's time to wake up (now)
Wipe the sleep from our eyes

When I'm confused
Losing my mind
Can you still see me through my eyes?

Verse 4
When I am lost
As if a child
Do you still find me in my smile?

We never got
To say goodbye
Before my memory left me

But don't be sad
We had our time
Made an adventure perfection

In the guise of intervention
Resolutions - as we pursue self interest

And they don't think twice
As they manipulate us
Demonitise all who stand in their way

We should just stand by - do nothing
But I don't trust power mad do gooders

Chorus
But in my name they fight
But in my name they kill

Here we go again
They walk away from reason
Then act surprised when they find they stand alone

Track Name: She's A Mystery
Verse 1
I don't know what's going on inside her head
I don't comprehend the things she says
We never agree about reality (illusion)
She remains a mystery to me

Bridge
Still I want to hold her hand
And she seems to understand
Never to reveal her plan
After all I'm just a man

Verse 2
I don't know what's going on in side her mind
Though I search no answers do I find
We never agree about the truth and lies (points of view)
She remains a mystery to me

Repeat Bridge

Chorus
She's a mystery to me
She's a mystery yeah
She's a mystery to me
She's a mystery to me

I don't know what's going on inside her heart
I can't enter into how she feels
We never agree about the wrong and right (dark and light)
She remains a mystery to me

Repeat Bridge

Track Name: Special Gift
Verse 1
Down in the gutter
Running like rats
Fight for survival
Vie for the scraps
Nobody is sure
Which way to turn
Nobody understands
Yet to be learned

Verse 2
Up on the sidewalk
Shopping for thrills
Spending money
Oiling the wheels
Nobody is sure
What satisfies
Nobody understands
Truth from the lies

Chorus
Makes me start to think
All this not knowing
Maybe meant to be
Like a special gift
Like a U.S.P

Verse 3
Out on the highway
All are confused
Ask a direction
Too many views
Nobody is sure
Which way to go
Nobody understands
Nobody knows

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental

All this not knowing
Maybe meant to be

Make your list
Don't be shy
You can have it all
For after all
Who are you
To deny yourself?

What you want
You decide
Your choice to choose
Just don't pretend
It's out of reach
Unless that serves you

Anything that you desire
Believe that you can have it

Pen a script
Pick your part
Recruit cast
For anything
You can conceive
Soon it will come to pass

Track Name: Where Are You?
Verse 1
Excited children laughing
They wake you from your journey sleep
A wooded entrance long un used calls you beyond

Verse 2
The sound of music dancing
The light of lanterns burning bright
The carriages of guests arriving lead you on

Verse 3
A gentle piano draws you
Her back is cloked venetian-red
She plays an air you feel you know from somewhere else

Bridge
Oh my love I know that you are out there
Oh my love I don't know how to get there
Oh my love I fear I must be dreaming
But no my love I wear the silken waistcoat

Chorus
Oh my love
Where are you?

Verse 4
Infant pulling at my sleeve
Turning pages on my knee
It's like a future memory as you play in the next room

Morning boat trip on the lake
Your blue eyes rest upon my face
Exchanging names you say you wait for my return

Evil terroriser
Hold their points of view both

Hey brother, brother sun
Hey sister, sister moon
We are one family

Far from country of birth
Trans religious dogma
Cross species of life

Unaware of who we are
Doesn't compromise the self that we express
Forcibly in evidence
Remnants of divinity
Sometimes hard to see - but there nevertheless

Chorus
In everyone
One tries to see
Where they come from

Perfectly executive
Everything we're meant to be
Doesn't matter what we choose to believe true
Constantly manifestive
Facets of divinity
Who's to say the right and wrong / how that must be?

To see if it's fake
Everyone is smile on their face
To see if you break
