Dreaming Wide Awake Too late, the melody is over The joke seems to be on me cos I'm the one not

laughing Down here on the floor Deflate, the mystery of living In the most heartless fashion I could ever Imagine No pretense of decor Another place and time, without a great divide And we could be flying deadly high I'll sell my soul to dream you wide awake Another place and time, without a warning sign And we could be dying angel style I'll sell my soul to dream you wide awake I'll dream you... wide awake With me, disaster finds a playfield Love seems to draw dark, twisted pleasure tearing at me Cos I can't let you go Mercy, like water in a desert Shine through my memory like jewelry in the sun Where are you now Another place and time... I'll dream you... wide awake It's like I'm racing to the sun, blindly face the blazing gun Cos I'm afraid I will be left here without you Like I'm racing not to run, give more when I have none Cos I'm afraid I will be left here without you... wide awake Another place and time... I'll dream you... wide awake.

War Do you remember standing on a broken field White crippled wings beating the sky The harbingers of war with their nature revealed And our chances flowing by If I can let the memory heal I will remember you with me on that field When I thought that I fought this war alone You were there by my side on the frontline When I thought that I fought without a cause You gave me a reason to try Turn the page I need to see something new For now my innocence is torn We cannot linger on this stunted view Like rabid dogs of war I will let the memory heal I will remember you with me on that field When I thought that I fought this war alone You were there by my side on the frontline And we fought to believe the impossible When I thought that I fought this war alone We were one with our destinies entwined When I thought that I fought without a cause You gave me the reason why With no-one wearing their real face It's a whiteout of emotion And I've only got my brittle bones to break the fall When the love in letters fade It's like moving in slow motion And we're already too late if we arrive at all And then we're caught up in the arms race An involuntary addiction And we're shedding every value our mothers taught So will you please show me your real face Draw the line in the horizon Cos I only need your name to call the reasons why I fought When I thought that I fought this war alone...

Change You say you feel a chill in the season Like something is falling apart You say you can't hold it together much longer And I should look after your heart But I feel a change coming on Rolling out of the blue like a storm And it's bending your will like a willow tree twisting Trying to regain its form How does it make you feel When you remember the times the two us lay here In the arms of the world on the doorstep of heaven shining down Do you feel a change coming on, Rolling out of the blue like a storm, And it's throwing your dollhouse world in disarray So you can rebuild or conform How I wish you'd only see How your own choices make your dream Come out shining true before it can leave you I wish that you could see How your own choices make your dream Come out shining true all around you My worth is the look in your eyes My prize the smile playing tricks on your lips and I wonder again Do you ever dream of the world like I do I too fear the change coming on Rolling out of the blue like a storm Can you hear it scream at the hurt that I knew How I wish you'd only see... What is this chill at my heel That makes the protections I've built around my pseudo world premiere Tearing my utopian fiction apart as it happens to just pass along I feel a change coming on Rolling out of the blue like a storm Crashing against my delirious thoughts where humanity's waiting alone How I wish you'd only see...

15 Min Flame The reaper's kneeling at your field taking in what you've sown Can't help feeling apprehension No point in waiting, for a rating for what you have grown Look for liquid consolation If I act accordingly will it save my humanity You're either you or a loyalty disowned Well excuse me Who was it who wanted every sec of the fifteen minute flame of fame A name to last for all eternity Who was it who wanted ingratiation beyond definitions When love alone is enough to set you free No escaping though you're running, you cannot find home Drowning in your desperation Conviction seems to follow accusations alone No place here for an easy redemption If I lack your tears of joy, please forgive my heartless ploy Said the fool to his majesty dethroned Now excuse me Who was it who wanted every sec of the fifteen minute flame To name a love to last through all your infamy Who was it who wanted ingratiation in their definitions When name alone can jail eternally Who was it who wanted every sec of the flame Who was it who wanted every sec of the fifteen minute flame of fame A name to last for all eternity Who was it who wanted ingratiation beyond definitions When love alone is enough to set you free

... . Fall like a leaf in the wind on the ocean Of blue like your eyes in the twilight theater With symphonies playing in the world without sound We're given and denied Give me back my innocence cos I wish to dream again Like I never outgrew my old playground Where the sun sets slowly with a golden crown and the leaves sing lullabies 'round vacant swings Give me those wings Let me fly once again Like I did way back when I would gamble and win To lift me high above the din Of the future we see Does it hold something for me I'm weightless again Just before the shadows...Given and Denied Which way to the fountain of my youth I wonder Which way to the years I've let go by Let a thirsty man drink in its memories while the water still flows sweet and crystal clear For yesteryear Oh to see the sun's eclipse on the horizon like ships sailing way away from here Oh just one more time my dear Before I'll go hear me out Cos of this there ain't no doubt When it's time for curtain call Just before the shadows.. Before I'll go hear me out Cos of this there ain't no doubt When it's time for curtain call Just before the shadows..... Fall like a leaf in the wind. Fall like a leaf in the wind.

Lift Times when I just can't Bring myself to say it loud 'Fraid that what I'll say comes out somehow awry That is when it seems We move in circles day to day Twist the drama of the play to get us by And it feels like fear Like I'll disappear Gets so hard to steer Yet I go on Do we need debate When it seems too late Like I bleed but wait Like nothing's wrong You lift my spirit. . take my spirit... make me fly. when you are mine You lift me higher. Touch the moon up in the sky. take me higher. make it fly. Where all new wonders will appear Like the other day I thought you won't be coming back I came to realize my lackluster dreams And among the schemes And all the tricks we try to play Only dreams will hold their sway and defy When it feels like fear.

And then you smile though it aches. cos you don't believe in mistakes. that's enough. . you'll learn to make the best of things.

Have a little more of not enough More of what is less but isn't love Little of the same you're dreaming of That's enough. just that we made a mess of things.. a one way street. with a little laugh we can fly. washing away the pain loss brings. you know the measure of hope that brings.. Just like the rain when you cried washed all the stains of false pride. I hear you laughing like a child. When the deal that you made with love is just a one way street.Overboard I see you crying and it rains. washing away the bad days. instead of choking all riled. you feel you'll go overboard. incomplete. And the way you say we'll get by. instead of staring at shortcomings.. cos you're incomplete..

deer's eyes on the asphalt underneath. and we crossed. and we crossed. less our trail's gone cold behind us till' in the john mirror you stare at yourself grown old and weak and we keep driving into the night it's a late goodbye. that one time screaming stop signs. staring. our crushed plans and my lies lonely street signs. staring wild eyes. keep on flashing. flashing by and we keep driving into the night it's a late goodbye. bleak. that line you made me strong when I was feeling weak. flashing by and we keep driving into the night it's a late goodbye. they keep on flashing. such a late goodbye..Late Goodbye in our headlights.. powerlines. and then we're playing hide and seek I can't breathe easy here. Based on a poem by Sam Lake . such a late goodbye and we keep driving into the night it's a late goodbye your breath hot upon my cheek. beer cans. such a late goodbye and we keep driving into the night it's a late goodbye the devil grins from ear to ear when he sees the hand he's dealt us points at your flaming hair.

Don't.Don't Mess With Me Sometimes I know there's nothing to say. don't mess with me. don't mess with me. I know it's the best by far. So do I pick up my puzzle and just walk away?

Seek You Out Never said you'd promise anything Never told to trust you blindly Never thought you'd hurt me either Never had a chance now ain't that so Never should've wept when you let go Never thought you'd push me away Sad as it may be I'm glad it's over finally Speaks volumes of me When letting go is never easy So I'll seek you out. till I hear myself Hear myself in you Never knew if we were really true Never thought I'd ever get to you Never thought I'd end up like this Never was I stronger than I'm now Never felt this much a fool somehow Never had much thought for myself . just to find myself And I'll worry 'bout consequences later I hear you out.

oh dear So to save face I'll hold my place So I may safely feel alone. ..Shallow More in my face Than is my taste I grow so weary I'll surrender To what they say Let them lead the way Till' I can no longer remember My darling dreams Prewritten scenes Whatever felt my own So to save face I'll take my place Where I may safely feel alone Glad the waters are so shallow When the river runs so cold I'm quick to wait Too slow to take They call me gracious for my patience And I feel proud Under that shroud And all the while it's all evasion Some humor here To fend off fear And I'm a little more lost..

The thoughtless but kind. That which drew you. All I'm saying is don't give up. Wishes sighed. don't worry. come turning of the tide. For your pain.Everything Fades Silly thoughts of small deeds.

Everything fades away. Secrets spied. Silhouettes and false leads. Everything that once answered to your needs. like a crow to glass beads. Everything fades away.

..Someone Special I wake up to the sound of rain upon my sill Pick up the pieces of my yesterday old thrill Can I deliver this used up shiver To how I pronounce my life And leave it up to faith to go by its own will Back row to the left A little to the side Slightly out of place Look beyond the light Where you'd least expect There's someone special A foggy morning greets me quietly today I smell a fragrance in the wind blowing my way And ever further I run to find her I yearn to define my life Placing my faith in chance to meet me in half way Back row to the left A little to the side Slightly out of place Look beyond the light Where you'd least expect There's someone special And she's here to write her name On my skin with kisses in the rain Hold my head and ease my pain In a world that's gone insane..

I raise my class and say "here's to you" I've got no hand.Illusion & Dream Look in my eyes I'll make you see We're drifting aimlessly Blind in a world of make believe Hear them sing their songs off key N' nod like they agree Buying the need to be discreet I've got no hand in matters worldly. humor me Won't rant on endlessly Just thought I'd try to make you see It doesn't solve a thing to dress it in a pretty gown A stone will not need you to guess if You're still going to drown So you know what drives me out Out of my mind It's whatever makes you see. please. Cos I'm locked behind my wall But you know what drives me out Out of my mind It's whatever makes you see.
