Track Name: Swish
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
Track Name: Distracted
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
Track Name: Careful Walk
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
Track Name: Strange Creature
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
Track Name: Fire
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
