1. RUNNING OUT OF TIME

Here's my confession, cos I can't keep it in me
And you know I'm breathless as I come undone
Undone before you

Loving every heartache, revel in every twisting turn
I can feel your wisdom burn in me like a second sun

Please forgive me, I can't lay down to waste mine
Going crazy running out of...

Why's it feel, like it kills, when you're leaving me
Am I still hanging on to the ends of yesterday in me
When I was crying for my fears, bitter tears
But you made me see we're crazy running
Crazy running like we're running out of time

Take my aggression as a gift
To show us what we need to change
The thoughts we need to rearrange
Cos we're alright now

Here's my confession, though I don't bow to authority
Right and wrong are my left and right

And this feels like we're crazy running
Like we're running out of time
Forgive me I can't lay down waiting

Why's it feel, like it kills, you're not leaving me
Am I still hanging on to the ends of yesterday in me
Still defining all my fears, bitter tears
You can make me see we're crazy running
Crazy running like we're running out of time

Why's it feel, like it kills, you're not leaving me
Am I still hanging on to the ends of yesterday in me
When I was crying for my fears, bitter tears
But you made me see we're crazy running
Crazy running like we're running out of time




2. TEMPLE OF THOUGHT

Chills, chills come racing down my spine
Like a storm on my skin
With shaking hands, I'll guide your sweet soul into mine
Until I feel you within
And I know, I know that it's all about understanding
Am I hidden inside your beautiful soul as it's crying
For love to conquer the day slowly dawning
I want you to know you're the heart of my temple of thought

So when you're restless, I will calm the ocean for you
In your sorrow, I will dry your tears
When you need me, I will be the love beside you
I'll take away all your fears
I'll take away all of your fears
So you can let go all your fears

And you stay, stay with me when I break down
Like a dream come saving
And if words should fail here,
I'll just read the way you sound
'Till I know the meaning of love and life
And it could be I'm understating what it means
That you're standing behind every word you say
To make my day slowly dawning
I want you to know you're the heart of my temple of thought

So when you're restless...

Dreams have nothing on my reality high
On the scent of your skin
I know we're riding endlessly into the sun,
Feel the life deep within

So when you're restless...




3. CRADLED IN LOVE

You had the blue note sapphire eyes,
To back up all those gazes
To pierce my guard and to take my soul off to faraway places
Told me I'll never be alone, cos you're right there

We took a gamble with this love, like sailing to the storm
With the waves rushing over to take us,
We were battling against the tide
You were my beacon of salvation, I was your starlight

So don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you're alive cradled in love
Don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you're alive cradled in love

I kept the love you gave me alive,
And now I carry it with me
I know it's just a tear drop from mother earth,
But in it I can hear a

dolphin sing
Telling me I'll never be alone,
I know you're right there

So with the fire still burning bright,
I wanna gaze into your light
If I could see my fortune there,
You know how flames can hypnotize
Do I even dare to speak out your name
For fear it sounds like, like a

Lover

So don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you're alive cradled in love
Don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you're alive

Cradled in love




4. KAMIKAZE LOVE

Here I go again rushing headlong without a second thought
Out where reality awaits, I choose to fantasize
And I build myself another piece of this memory estate
But I can't find the key to walk inside my own lies

Hell, the way you walked in,
I would kiss the earth beneath your feet

Take me where the angels fall
You take it all
You give no quarter for my love
You raise me high to tear me down
Leaves you reeling, feels like stealing
Frantic moments of kamikaze love

What you live and breath is why you're dying,
I can see it in your eyes
It burns, but the waters will not flow,
And we watch it all burn down
Just to pry ourselves another piece of this memory estate
But we can't find the key to unlock its doors for our souls

Hell, the way you walked in,
I would kiss the earth beneath your feet

Take me where the angels fall...

Broken phrases, distorted faces
Misunderstanding standing in between
These stolen moments hijack my love
Miss Understanding grinning through her teeth

Take me where the angels fall...




5. THE LIE ETERNAL

I'm here tonight, the passion of your life
To up the stakes, you will be like me in time
So let me come inside your heart, your mind
Hell, I dare you to see yourself in a different light
Where my hungry desire finds oblivion
In your embrace, all mistakes forgiven in your embrace

I'm here, I'm now, arrived
I fell in to your love, I fell in to your lie eternal
I'm here, I'm now, survived
I fell in to your love, I fell in to your lie

You're my sweet trial
All my vestiges of hope pin wishes upon this
To prove I can be right for you and me
This whole damn controversy will shift its course
For better or for worse
In your embrace, all illusions broken in your embrace

I'm here, I'm now...

If you didn't desire me,
My world could never feel more surreal
Cos it's only you can touch me deep enough to heal
N' if you didn't inspire me,
Then on my knees I would fall like rain
Cos it's only you can calm me with your touch
Your voice so softly whispering

I'm here, I'm now...




6. SKIN

We made ourselves a home out of our dreams
Brought with us this love now bittersweet
And maybe I could say now that I always thought of you
How you've run to walk with me your whole life through

And I know, we go deeper than skin
But what lies within is still deeper than we know

And for all this pantomime, you should see the state I'm in
I couldn't heal myself with time alone
I have you tattooed on my skin

This house is full of stories we both told
These rooms their very stage where they'd unfold
These walls they whisper secrets and memories thereof
But this door no longer leads us to that love

Yeah, I know, we go deeper than skin
But what lies within is still deeper than we know

And for all this pantomime...

All I ever wanted was to hold you
What can I do now to make things new
I ain't trying to write you into a song
Cos you're too sacred and I would feel wrong
But what irony life holds,
I was finally ready to meet you halfway
You turned and walked away

And for all this pantomime...




7. THE DISTANCE

Is this really how quickly it goes away
I can't feel my emotions arrive today

Cos I still love how you say my name
I still taste you kissing my pain away
Still see your tears through the rain
These burning sensations sustain

Feel the distance bring us closer
Water would cool and soothe my pain
If we could touch now, just hold on now
Bridges would never burn again

I've seen this yearning take on a frightening form
The memory of you will make sure my past lingers on

And I still love how you say my name
I still taste you kissing my pain away
Still see your tears through the rain
These burning sensations sustain

Feel the distance...

Don't you worry
There'll be a time when our hearts beat the same
Let life carry
Across the distance I still see your flame
Don't you worry
There'll be a time when out hearts beat the same
Let life carry

Still love how you say my name
I still taste you kissing my pain away
Still see your tears through the rain
These burning sensations sustain

Feel the distance...




8. SHOW ME THIS LIFE

I'm just looking to live to learn how to live
Slowly starting to see it's me I will need to forgive
Cos it seems like I'm stuck here between
What I know and what I cannot know now
With too many choices of which way to go
Insight's a no show

I don't need a miracle, I'm much more predictable
I just need you to show me this life
And if you ain't too critical,
We could be something beautiful
I just need you to show me this life
Take me home tonight

Just a fantasy away,
Your naked love laid next to me
My extacy

If I can't decide to opt for my choice
Does it mean I'm replacing, erasing your beautiful voice
So every time you would tell me a lie,
I could happily take it
If all revelations would idly flow by,
I wouldn't even fake it

I don't need a miracle...

Just a fantasy away...

I thought I'd see it for myself
But this life ain't, it ain't for me alone
And here I thought I could keep it for myself
But you can slice the light right off my sun
With your razorblade caress of love

I don't need a miracle...

Just a fantasy away...




9. MORMING TIDE

Rise with me now, and we'll walk to the shore
We'll look over the waves to the break of day
I'll hold your hand, I'll hold you close
I'll wipe away your tears, and no one will know

On the morning tide
We'll hoist the sails to brave the crashing waves
Won't you come with me and hear the ocean sigh
And if to its depths it called us by our names
Won't you sail to the shore with me

Come to me now, and together we'll go
Where the clearer winds blow, far and beyond
Leaving behind all our sorrow and pride
Kissing them goodbye, into another life

On the morning tide...

Won't you come with me
Sail to the shore with me
Won't you come with me, come with me, come with me, sail

Love is still here
Never will it leave
You're always with me, and I'm always with you

On the morning tide...




10. THE BALLAD OF JEREMIAH PEACEKEEPER

He stares out the window, blank as a canvas
Made up in the sunlight and swirling smoke and ash
He waits for a breath
Now, taking his time,
He sees an eternity in a blink of an eye

And for him this life is made of time and choices
And endless blend of vistas painted bright with memories
The here and now will bow to him to only serve one purpose
To keep your peace

He takes on the world all in a stride,
And your wounds will be his scars
So won't you remember when the night comes
He will need your open arms
For to be invincible, he needs your love

He stands in the doorway, quiet like yesterday
With forgotten throughs become
A mystery and nightmares locked away
He looks like a gunman, but his view is much too wide
For such a solution,
So he fights without a six gun on his side

And all the while his stars and moon shine brightly
Outside the desert wails a curse of rage and jealousy
And yet tomorrow comes along and shifts to serve his purpose
To keep your peace

He takes on the world all in a stride...




11. THE HAPPY SONG

You knew I'm a psycho
I told you I'm a psycho
Cos really I'm a psycho, psycho, psycho

Violent schizophrenia
You know I'm gonna get ya
