Swish 04:20
The swish of a door Whispers her momentary presence Another sleepless one's "Pleasant Night ..." Is not punctuated by the usual Click of the lock And soon we find her Engaged in conversation Small Talk Conversation is alive And she gestures somewhat grandly To her chest While she laughs and she talks As if to tempt my eyes That I may be abhorred And dismissed As another Breeding male Unable to engage her Eye to eye I'd like to but I cannot For if I do I will be lost I laugh with the madness Beauty brings I smile with the sadness As her voice rings Through my hollow head

Distracted 04:47
The stack of books beside my bed Never seems to get read With you around Messing with my head My eyes are tired My hands are sore With you around I'm going to Bore myself To death I give you my time I give you my attention The air is thick with Miscommunication I see your games But I still get drawn in You're like a maze I need to solve and Get out Combust Come alive and breath Let your horses Run free I see your games But I still get drawn in You're like a maze I need to solve and Get out Surround yourself with That which inspires you to move Surround yourself with Those who inspire you to do I see your games But I still get drawn in You're like a maze I need to solve and Get out

Careful Walk 05:12
A careful walk A careful smile Careful talk All the while The time draws near To shed our cloaks And dance together Struck with Fear And we shield each other Struck with Greed And we share Struck with Division To keep us apart And we dance together

Strange Creature We met so much closer to the shore And now it seems my every thought Leads me to your inland door The fire in your eyes so bright Like I've never seen before I think two stars fell from the night That blessed morning you were born Something in your voice Raises my wings to fly I want to see you In your star light With your eyes that sparkle And your face so bright I'd love to see you The sound of your voice calling my name Raised me from the ground Where I laid broken I could not move or even breath a sound You whispered, "It's all right" and stroked my feathered crown You kept me warm through cold, cold nights Then I watched you leave town Something in your voice Raises my wings to fly I want to see you In your star light With your eyes that sparkle And your face so bright I'd love to see you

Fire 05:29
Here I stand You try to drain me of all my blood Drain me of all my strength But I feel the energy Flow around And I know There's still a light in my eyes And so I smile Just because I'm not dead yet Or is this what you would like me To forget When you debase the body with shame You threaten me with flame You've darkened my skies with your ash Poison my Sun And try to blind me with your gaudy sparkle and flash Am I mad If I laugh to myself Am I mad if I laugh Crazed if I howl For my lover Or raise my arms To greet a welcome breeze Or if I smile Just because I'm not dead yet Or is this what you would like me To forget When you debase the body with shame You threaten me with flame You've darkened my skies with your ash Poison my Sun And try to blind me with your gaudy sparkle and flash Do you see the beauty Of the coming night Or only the death Toward which you fly Through the vision of a world Falling down in ash Do you even know That you are dancing on someone else's back Do you even know that you are dancing Do you even know that you are Side by side With the wind at our feet Dance out to the fire Singing songs of five Discordant choir Come alive And howl
