Track Name: Once Were Stars
Once Were Stars

We're spit out, shot through space and spun around,
We once were stars.
We're crossed paths, we're orbits that weren't meant to last,
We once were stars.

We're phone calls shot through air, flesh and walls,
We once were stars.
We're bright blasts, explosions that fade way too fast,
We'll miss the stars.

A voice comes through the waves,
A troubled call light-years away,
"You're not alone," it's saying.

When light's gone, when nothing's right and all is wrong,
We'll look to the stars.
We're spit out, shot through space and spun around,
We once were stars.

A voice comes through the waves,
A troubled call light-years away,
"You're not alone," it's saying.

A voice comes through the waves,
A distant call light-years away,
"You're not alone," it's saying.
Track Name: Summer Love
Summer Love

Let the spring time end,
Let summer begin.
I wanna feel the heat,
Of your warm golden skin.
But you were out of reach,
Behind bathing eyes,
Laying on a beach of white sand and sky.

Summer Love.

The wild, wildest world,
Whose ways work unknown,
Under palm trees found you and I alone.
We were lost for days,
Or for years it seems,
And like Steve Miller say,
We spent our time in a dream.

Summer Love.

On a boat she sailed,
Far away from me.
Taken by the gales of a tropical sea.
When I feel her now she's in a southern wind,
That takes me away and brings her again.

Summer Love.
Track Name: Got a Hold
Got A Hold

A raindrop in a drought,
The desert flood's are out,
And rising all around,
Until you can't help drown.

It's like a seed that grew,
Slowly into whatever gets you through,
Whatever pulls at you.

It's got a hold on you,
And it's always going to have a hold on you.

She's like a summer storm,
She's welcome and she's warm,
She's not around for long,
She'll kiss you then she's gone,

She's got a hold on you,
And she's always going to have a hold on you.
She's got a hold on you,
And she's always going to have a hold on you.
Track Name: I Was Only Dreaming Love
I Was Only Dreaming Love

Temple of sparks,
Curtains of rain,
Ceilings at dawn,
Alive with flames.

Voices that drone,
Whispers that hang,
Bodies that don't rise up,
Weighed down by chains.

But I was only dreaming love.

Storms shake thy night,
Dissolve by day,
Leaving behind a roar of castle gray.

But I was only dreaming love.
Track Name: The Quiet Dark
The Quiet Dark

(Instrumental)
Track Name: Against Us
Against Us

Hey, where'd ya go?
Whatcha do?
Who did you know?
I feel the grind,
Of sleeping teeth and aching time.
I'm not strong, I'm not tough,
I'm not anything.
But when is enough of anything?

I know all the world is against us.
I know all the world's a lie.

Hey, where'd ya go,
When you left me alone?
Well you, you took time,
You took yours and you took mine.
You're not strong, you're not tough,
But you're everything to me.
I won't give, give up for anything.

I know all the world is against us.
I know all the world's a lie,
It's shadows and holy hocus-pocus,
Let go, let other worlds collide.


I know all the world is against us.
I know all the world's a lie,
It's shadows and holy hocus-pocus,
Let go, let other worlds collide.
Track Name: Love is a Dream
Love Is A Dream

Don't lie this is not good-bye,
No it can't be.
Last time was not last time,
Maybe we're waiting?
It's safety, oh, and lately it has me hating.
I just want, what would anyone want,
Without begging?

I loved you more than I've ever been,
And I loved you more than I ever dreamed.

Don't pout, ah just let it out,
The weight is killing.
The soul's strong but it's been stretched too long,
The flesh is willing.
It's no fun and the race is run,
No one's winning.
I just want, what would anyone want,
Without begging?

I loved you more than I've ever been,
And I loved you more than I ever dreamed.
(You do what you want.)
Track Name: Night Time Blues
Night Time Blues

Look into the darkness,
There's something and it moves.
Your heart will stop knowing that you choose,
The nightmares you see in sleep,
The night time blues.

Waiting for release now,
And praying in the pews,
When through the door a figure comes to you,
The nightmares you see awake,
The night time blues.

Hide your face from sunshine,
It's such a clever ruse,
Then no one will know the secrets or the truth.

Look into the darkness,
There's something and it moves.
You hear its breath,
A voice that calls to you,
Says, "Farewell to the day."
The night time blues.
Track Name: Time Slips Away
Time Slips Away

It's always rain and never shine.
The hurts you have, the faults you find.
How'd you get out of bed this morning?
With thoughts of hate?
With eyes so blind?

Time slips away.
Time slips away.
Time slips away from you.

You'll fade away,
And leave behind,
The march of days,
The sands of time.
How did you take me over,
With thoughts of hate and eyes so blind?
You're losing time.

Time slips away.
Time slips away.
Time slips away from you.

Time slips away.
Time slips away.
Time slips away from you.
Track Name: The Sea and the Storm
The Sea and the Storm

There's always sunrise to look through new eyes,
At scars from last night,
At what's wrong and what's right.

We're lovers at sea,
Lost in the deep.
Reach for the shoreline,
Reach for your life.

They're warning below,
We're not meant alone,
The sea and the storm,
They'll swallow.

There's always tonight.
The shore's in sight,
But we cannot hide dark thoughts behind smiles.

They're warning below,
We're not meant alone,
The sea and the storm,
They'll swallow.

They're warning below,
We're not meant alone,
The sea and the storm,
They'll swallow.
