Track Name: A Stone That Forever Rolls
The world has secrets never told
Lost to the ages of total control
You know that plan will kill your soul
What's a lifetime running scared?
Like a stone that forever rolls
Over the hills into nevermore
They burn the pages of the conquered souls
The libraries of the mystery schools
Shape the word to show it low
Where is your heart on the battlefield?
Like a stone that forever rolls
Over the hills into nevermore
The will has secrets never told
Lost to the ages of total control
You know that plan will kill your soul
They shape the word to show it low
Track Name: The Storms a Comin'
You can't find yourself looking back
Into clouds of haziness
Never let past regrets tie your hands
Hold you back
Tired of running from the storm a comin'
The storms a comin'
Tired of running
Who is willing to bite the hand?
Starving out the hungry kids
All the sons of Abraham
Always fighting to the death
It's always something
You live for nothing
To die for something
Or die for nothing
You can't find yourself looking back
Into clouds of haziness
Never let past regrets tie your hands
Hold you back
Tired of running from the storm a comin'
The storms a comin'
Tired of running
All the sons of Abraham
Always fighting to the death
Who is willing to bite hand?
Bombing all the hungry kids
You live for nothing
To die something
Or die for nothing
To live for something
Track Name: Down in the Draw
Trying to stave it off
Awash in the master plan
On the peaks
Down in the draw
Time like water runs through your hands
Hold it as you might
The grains will slip away
Leaving feelings wound up so tight
The army never retreats
The pangs of hunger setting in
Trying to break the spirit of the land
Through the Winter digging in
To Spring in fields of battles ingrained
Where the dust has blown
It slowly accumulates
The past will rise up again
In strange and new mysterious ways
Track Name: Still They Haunt Us
Open like a valley
Obscured in muddy water
It seems you can't have one without the other
There were times of plenty
Following fields of nothing
The charity of Sisters and Brothers
And Nature the giving Mother
Stand before the humble mountain
The rock in the center of everything
The rock in the center
Of everything
Can you hear the word forgotten?
Still they haunt us
Whispering from beyond
Do you feel our pain?
Where this goes who dares to follow?
To walk away from a love so fair
A simple life working a field share
The spirit of our forebearers
The cloud that follows
Covering all the memories
Still they haunt us
From beyond the reckoning
Can you hear the word erased?
Burned from our memories
Still they haunt us
Whispering from beyond
Can you feel our pain?
Open in the valley
Obscured in muddy water
There were times of plenty
Following fields of nothing
Track Name: Around a Slow Dying Fire
Catch a fading feeling fast
Store them all in amber glass
For looking back on heavy days
Thought I knew what true love was
Had it once but now it's gone
No I don't believe it works out that way
Fate brings in times of plead
A guiding hand of destiny
It never was ours anyway
Revel in the times of need
For it's not all that it seems
Like the Moon we wax and we wane
Now I see what true love is
The long road that takes and gives
Along for the entire way
As we sit and talk around a slow dying fire
Our voices carry through the nite to somewhere over yonder
Somewhere over yonder
Catch a fading feeling fast
Store them all in amber glass
For looking back on rainy days
Thought I knew what true love was
Saw it once on a cross country bus
Now I know it doesn't work out that way
Revel in the times of need
For it's not all that it seems
Like the moon we wax and we wane
Now I see what true love is
The long road that takes and gives
Along for the entire way
As we sit and talk around a slow dying fire
Spirits dancing through the nite to somewhere over yonder
Somewhere over yonder
Catch a fading feeling fast
Store them all in amber glass
For looking back on heavy days
Track Name: In the Valley of the Tomb of the Kings
In the Valley of the Tomb of the Kings
Homesick for another far away place
I've never been
They thought the ground was exhausted
One more season digging
We felt as we'd been beaten
Then in the waning moments
A discovery of epic proportions
Still I was feeling homesick
For another far away place
I've never been
In the slow sinking
Down the stairway digging
Through the sealed the doorway
What can you see?
Everything
A great excavation
The Goddess Isis protecting
Opening the three coffins
In the Valley of the Tomb of the Kings
Homesick for another far away place
I've never been
They thought the ground was exhausted
One more season digging
We felt as we'd been beaten
Track Name: Slow Tick
Slow ticking the clock is turning
The city is sleeping
Unsafe and sound
Unknowing the poison winds are blowing
As dawn is breaking
The air we're all breathing
Cellular memory won't let us forget it
For as long we both live
Slow grinding the mills of heaven
Stress is cracking our Holy Temple
From the base it's spreading
To the top it's crumbling
From the summit falling
Slow ticking the clock is turning
The country is waking
Defend it's honor
For the sake of our future
And our own salvation
Looking in the mirror
See no reflection
Of the self as I knew it
Unknowing
Slow turning the world is burning
Or is it cooling?
Slow ticking the clock is turning
The country is sleeping
Safe for the moment
Who will die to protect it?
For the revolution
Or God and Country Corporation?
Track Name: Bless yr Heart My Friend
There isn't anything I wouldn't do
Walk to the Poles and back again
Still can't help but losing you
Circle of time forcing my hand
Wondering where you've floated to?
You know I'll see you again
It's surely somewhere beautiful
Bless yr heart my friend
There was something in the air that day
The light slowly floats away
Moon held Earth in her tender gaze
Sowed the seeds of needed change
Wondering where you've floated to?
You know I'll see you again
It's surely somewhere beautiful
Bless yr heart my friend
There isn't anything you wouldn't do
Always pulling at my left hand
There was something in the air that day
Moon held Earth in your tender gaze
Wondering where you've floated to?
You know I'll meet you again
It's surely somewhere beautiful
Where nothing hurts my friend
Bless yr heart my friend
