alandrae
the sands are lonely and almost gone
the sea is raging yet it calls for none
for the bitter part of the floating waves
is mist beyond, mixing all these shades

it stands for the world to see
well it's not the first time
the winter of alandrae
it comes to me

the clouds are only a moment gone
and where they came from that i almost saw
for the bitter part of the crashing waves
is just beyond, nearly all the same

it scans all the world to find
well it's not the first time
picture night in day

who will make it worse
the sun again has caught me in such an awful curse
for one to make eyes hurt
the undersides of grey

and who will make it worse
the sun again has caught me in such an awful curse
for one to make eyes hurt
the undersides of grey
they undermine for me

all is not enough
staring in to what might be for me
the biggest ocean
standing with my love
and never noticing what's underneath

believing it's twice as true
that all i ever needed was in you
the weary thought of one has become two

i will
seek for you what he has shown
in the midst of all that's wrong
for i live
breathing only to be loved
at the mention of this one

night is turning to day
despite my insecurities within
the weakest notion
entering my name
a single breath, a gentle touch from your hand

the feeling is twice as true
that no one can erase where we have been
underneath this waterfall we're in


to be loved

through blackened hills
feel the urge again
to hide away
with a motion you survived

seven months to bend
a temperamental brain
fearing only in your mind

then it goes
far from those

well it don't come if you run
and it falls on everyone
looks like they only come for you
and it don't come if you run

by the water grows
the brightest blue
budding darkness you confide

then results itself
disastrous and true
in the middle of the night

where it goes
no man knows

well it don't come if you run
and it falls on everyone
seems like they only run for you
and it don't come if you run

da da da da da da da

well it don't come if you run
and it falls on everyone
looks like they only dwell in some dark place
and it don't come if you run

i know
that every moment is gone
and you've shown
with every word i've drawn
and the worst part
is never knowing when

and leaves blow
outside of a moment of fall
and trees grow
with never sowing at all
and the first part
is never near the end

through the emptiness
the moments of our lives
you could offer your complaint

and in the center of
the loneliness we hide
you would offer your own name


when

soft song
caught in a stormy winter night
as cold as it grows i never die
restless in this haunted room
conditions all my own
i'm wanting to be here with you
the feeling i'm not alone

the devil walks this road tonight
and speaks to me in normal light
the loveliness that covers you
could never be untold
and happiness is scraping through
the empty heart i hold

summoning all these cornered skies
ceiling to feet in compromise
tortured here in noble gloom
and somebody called my home
forward into no one's room
it pleases me to know

someone caught this softer side
it's spinning me on this dizzy ride

come by the coast
you figure no one walks alone
at least no one knows
eventually you'll go between the rows

you fall enough to catch the daylong
and settled up to take away

and in time
we wouldn't leave it from the old home
and to find
could we believe that i could hold on
timely to the end
cause no one sees but him

seems no one tells
a casualty we break amongst ourselves
caught when they've said
the pain that comes when no one else is there
hide me in your stare

a common ground is sung the same song
it's nowhere else but in the way

to leave among this time
you set it right
to keep it all unwound
you'll spin it 'round
down
slowly to the flame
and to find
emptiness engraved


old home

september
in may
august came and no one told me why
in between we came from no one
the calming to see the sky
and in from whence we place this torrent
well it's soon to break my tide
now laughing with this moment
that comes to take my eyes

and recognizing
the truth between the subtle lines of dawn
and only half relying
time is gone

the day, is something new and no one told me why
to glorify the name from which we came to know
enduring rain

and recognizing
the truth between the subtle lines of dawn
and only half relying
time is gone

to save this quiet time

in the midst of praise
with a broken haze
in the afterglow is where
the only song began

and do you lie
where faces have no breath
and will we hide
this ever pending death

when the conscience strays
and the entrance bled
for the open grave is not
the end of all our friends

forever quite undead

rise
to meet exalted Christ
hopelessness you countered
now enter to your side

(the rest is up to interpretation)


do you lie?

(written by gene eugene)
long time
no see
i know it's been a while
i'm glad you're doing okay
you know me anyway

i've been somewhere
i've been everywhere
i've been nowhere
and you've been on the road
you with your heavy load

crazy eights, go fish
i made a pond
remember that you asked if i was happy
i wondered were you sad

long time
no see
i know it's been a while
it seems like you're doing well
jimmy, i can't tell

nurses aides and magazines
it's late, it's time to go
how glad i was to hear that day
they sent you home

i'm tied up
i'm busy
i'm busy
but i'll come over soon
we'll get some chinese food
i'd like that, wouldn't you
