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

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

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

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

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

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

Slow Tick 04:29
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?

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
