The 3rd And The Mortal

Painting on Glass tracks

Lyrics

1. MAGMA

The pulsation of my blood
The pressure splits my skin
Magma floats
Burns feeble flesh into ashes
Sulphurous screams in my head
In a petrified soul




2. COMMEMORATION

I am bound to past
And stagnant presence
Sallow faces, seducers
Seize my threads of mind

To suscipe pre animabus illis
Quarum hodie memoriam facimus




3. CRYSTAL ORCHIDS

I gave you my word
And the shafts of light
Opened the sky

But as your shadow rise
Passing colours in your mind
I bow down silently

I gave you my love
As the rusting trees
Sprinkled blades on the ground

And as your shadow rise
Passing colours in your mind
I bow down silently
Creeping frost pits my skin
Crystal orchids blooming




4. PERSISTENT AND FLEETING

(Instrumental)




5. WHITE WATERS

(Instrumental)




6. AURORA BOREALIS

(Instrumental)




7. DREAMSCAPES

Evening thoughts
Reverie
A Child
A hot stuffy room
A steamy face-curtained window
Symbols gracefully painted on glass
A short exhibition of a stealthy thought

The gleam of morning
Waking up




8. AURORA AUSTRALIS

(Instrumental)




9. AZURE

(Instrumental)




10. VEILED EXPOSURE

I want to inhale you like fresh air
But slowly you spin a cocoon and disappear
Let me open your seals and enter your garden
Let me seek to find your well
Then I'll sit down by the source
And wait for the deep secrets to reveal

I change with you
I extricate some threads
And make a place for you
Then I become you
And you become me...




11. STAIRS

(Instrumental)




12. EAT THE DISTANCE

(Instrumental)




13. VAVONIA PART II

Behind your door
Landscapes
Your name carved into a stone
Rivers
Water in your hands
Salvation




14. HORIZONS

I seek your coast
Your horizon...
Whispering fingertips
On dripping skin...

Feeble questions

Sounds from my throat
