Track Name: Sleep Well My Dear
who are these people who wave hello in the street?
are you real? are you alive? how is it we should meet?
you say you know your purpose but you're lost inside the fear
I sense the truth of your spark anytime you are near

sleep well my dear
ignore the phone
there's no one on the line
you are truly alone

waiting for something different to happen, it has already begun
no one called and no one came, you are the only one
how i feel it doesn't matter, so i retreat inside myself
what i think is nothing and there's nothing left to tell

sleep well my dear
ignore the phone
there's no one on the line
you are truly alone
Track Name: Always Wrong
i'm already gone
i'm already dead
i'm already lost
inside my head

i thought it was you
i guess i was wrong
now i find myself trapped
lost in a song
i'm always wrong
i'm always wrong
see the light in your eyes
but i'm always wrong

no love in hesitation
but i always hesitate
endless this frustration
as i suffer through my fate

i thought it was you
i guess i was wrong
now i find myself trapped
lost in a song
i'm always wrong
i'm always wrong
see the light in your eyes
but i'm always wrong

can i forgive myself
can i let this go
can i find the one
and will i ever know

i thought it was you
i guess i was wrong
now i find myself trapped
lost in a song
i'm always wrong
i'm always wrong
see the light in your eyes
but i'm always wrong
Track Name: Let Your Heart Melt
the swirling seas that swim within my soul
my head begins to spin out of control

waiting for the words to drift my way
that could bring you to my arms before today

and i can't change the way you feel
and i can't make you see it's real
i have to trust you'll see the signs
to let your heart melt into mine
Track Name: Invisible Visitor
a visitor at my door
a mystery in the storm
we don't know why it happens
but we want a little more

a letter from a friend
with a clue about the end
there is static on the line
and a broken peace of mind

where are you
i want to talk to you
but there's no one out there
there's nothing to see
someone at the cemetery
keeps calling me back home

the ringing will not stop
i finally hear a voice
the words have gotten scrambled
i never had a choice

i'll have another drink
until everything turns black
i fear the reflection of everything
everything I lack

where are you
i want to talk to you
but there's no one out there
there's nothing to see
someone at the cemetery
keeps calling me back home

there's nothing i can say
no words will ever do
you don't listen anyway
and no one will get through

over and over again
hello, hello
why must you keep on calling
what is it you want to know
oh please just let me go

where are you
i want to talk to you
but there's no one out there
there's nothing to see
someone at the cemetery
keeps calling me back home
Track Name: This Means Nothing
why are you here
why do you stick around
i'm pushing you away
you keep dragging me down

i make my retreat
the words i repeat
wish i could see
what this all means

this means nothing

i wish you could see
what this all means
the words i repeat
admit my defeat

this means nothing
Track Name: Illumination
let me tell you a thing or three
about the doctor and his gift to me
looking deep inside to see
a glowing electricity

illumination in my mind
evolving into the divine

a strange magic anyone can know
the sun reflects our sacred glow
sending messages of love and hope
all that's left is to let it go

illumination in my mind
evolving into the divine
Track Name: The Curse Of Eternity
as timeless as infinity
as fast as outer space
a dungeon made of mountains
a lost and lonely place

confined in solitude
on an asteroid far from earth
loneliness my sentence
eternity my curse
drop in sometime
observe my agony
come again inside
see my insanity

what else can I say
I'll be gone by the end of the day
and will I ever find my way
or just get lost amongst the fray

a microscopic piece of sand
floating out in outer space
I left a piece of my soul
in that lost and lonely place
Track Name: My Heart's Ghost
there's something i've been saving for you
been thinking about it for a month or two
all this time we've spent together
i lost my way in your idea of forever

head out to the hills
i won't be comin home
i didn't want to say goodbye
or leave you all alone
but it's out of my hands
out of my control
i drifted to another world
while searching for your soul

i saw your eyes reflecting in the light of my love
but they could not guide me home or show me stars above
it was an image of myself that i didn't want to see
i clung on way too tight neither one of us could breathe

head out to the hills
i won't be comin home
i didn't want to say goodbye
or leave you all alone
but it's out of my hands
out of my control
i drifted to another world
while searching for your soul

bury my sorrows beneath the dirty ground
i can't see through my tears, i cannot tell you why
no one can hear me make a sound
place flowers on my grave, my heart's ghost free to fly

head out to the hills
i won't be comin home
i didn't want to say goodbye
or leave you all alone
but it's out of my hands
out of my control
i drifted to another world
while searching for your soul
Track Name: The Light Of Creation
journey through another dimension
of feeling sound and sight
a land built on imagination
brother can you see the light

the light of creation
she sings sweet songs of the soul
a sonic sensation
let go so you don't lose control

journey to another space
that exists inside your mind
a space built for exploration
sister can you feel the light

the light of creation
she sings sweet songs of the soul
a sonic sensation
let go so you don't lose control

shine, oh shine, shine
into my heart into my mind
into my body and my soul
into the deepest darkest hole
Track Name: Too Bright To Last
you could never be
the girl I wanted you to be
I was so blind
oh I was so blind

it's too late to turn back now
I lie in the bed i've made
my soul strong and alive
as these emotions quickly fade

i'll do my best you know
it could be your time has passed
and even if i let it go
we burned too bright, too bright to last

it no longer makes me sad
to think of all we have missed
i know only one truth
and the silence brings me bliss

no more attachment
the desire is gone
there's nothing you could tell me
to make me hold on

the fog has lifted
and i've opened my eyes
i've broken the spell
and i've made peace with the lies

i'll do my best you know
it could be your time has passed
and even if i let it go
we burned too bright, too bright to last
Track Name: Mirage (In The Shadows)
a new life appears flying over my head
is this a vision of the future am I already dead
there is no means of escape and my sanity fades away
my laughter turns to tears as I realize my fate

i lost my mind when i found my way
was just a mirage, a crack in the sky
i found myself alive in the day
i went back inside to see why

in the shadows
the present merges with the past
toes dipped in shallow
but still i know i'm sinking fast

in the shadows
the spirit twists and turns
searching for a love
that will always burn
Track Name: Another Thousand Years Or Two
been around this wheel so many times
i think i've finally gone and blew my mind
isn't that the way you gotta escape
i think i'm learning how this time

and i find

that i'll stick around another thousand years or two
if i can spend my lives in love with you
i'm never ever gonna find a reason to leave
as long as you'll always be
right next to me

but now you need some space
and i'm lost in outer space
yeah i'm lost in outer space
you put me in my place
i'm lost in outer space
Track Name: Infinitely
you love to be loved
the object of desire
no one can hold your heart
save for bastards and liars

i'm humble on my knees
armed with nothing but my love
and i can give it all to you
but you push and then you shove

i could shower you in affection
and treat you like my queen
i can conjure up love's magic
like nothing that you have seen

but my hand you will not choose
your heart is broken and it's bruised
and with the hatred for yourself
you only want to be abused

i could never hurt you
only love and adore you
you cannot accept my words
you feel you don't deserve

just want to stroke your hair
and gently touch your skin
but you are numb to love's pleasure
you refuse to let me in

i cry and i plea so desperately
let me love you
infinitely
Track Name: The Devil & His Deal
i was good i was so good
i was really good
but i never understood
never did what i should

a fear i cannot overcome
now i watch it come undone
yes it all will come undone
i thought you were the one

believed it to be real
it's just the devil and his deal
your future now revealed
it's the devil and his deal

send your demons send your witches
i'll find truth in the glitches
send your wizards with their wands
i will sing you heaven's song

bring me magic bring me potions
i will swim the deepest oceans
bring me giants bring me light
i will survive one last night

no soul for you to steal
it's the devil and his deal
it's becoming way too real
it's the devil and his deal
Track Name: Heaven Is Calling
determined to have your way
dominate the day
cut them all to pieces
if they don't let you have your say

i didn't know it was you
please don't leave me all alone
heaven on earth is calling
but hell is all you know

creation through suffering
the muse demands her cut
certain of a reason
never knowing what

i didn't know it was you
please don't leave me all alone
heaven on earth is calling
but hell is all you know
Track Name: Behind The Hidden Door
can I show you something
it's not what you're looking for
but there's something special waiting
behind the hidden door

there must be some mistake
there's nothing here for me
stuck in some dimension
that i never thought i'd see

i look but i can't find
no help for my mind
i look but i can't find
i've got something you might like
i run but can't escape
the emptiness of fate
let me out i'm going down
with the only thing i found

dented and scratched
in the age which i was hatched
i'm running out of sand
and closing time is at hand

can anyone help
anyone please
i'm locked inside
and i've lost the key

you can remember
you know who you are
you must remember
this is who you are
Track Name: Stuck Here In This Dream
everyone is gone
there's no one here but me
crash landing in nowhere
no explanation I can see
logic has no answer
all these questions in my mind
the machines are on their own
though they seem so real, so alive

crying to the heavens
can no one hear my screams
i thought you were here waiting
but illusion is all i see

and i'm stuck here in this dream
stuck here in this dream
no one hears my screams
illusion is all i dream

trying anything i can
just to make a change
lost inside your story
and now things are getting very strange
dying thoughts of reality
hallucination fogs my mind
desperate to embrace another of my kind
but there's no one here to find

crying to the heavens
can no one hear my screams
i thought you were here waiting
but illusion is all i see

and i'm stuck here in this dream
stuck here in this dream
no one hears my screams
illusion is all i dream

i'm stuck here in this dream
Track Name: A Song For My Soul
I. EMPTY INSIDE

i'm empty inside
i got nothin left to give
i need someone's help
show me what i need to live
guess it's meant to be
by myself and so alone
there's nobody for me
they stay awhile
but always go
i might push them all away
i don't really even care anyway
i might run off and hide
don't you know i am empty inside

II. RESCUE ME

is there anyone out there who can rescue me
can you save me from myself
i am my own worst enemy
and i've damned my soul to hell

what must i sacrifice
to appease this empty shell
i can help nearly anybody
but i can't save myself

III. LOVE ME/FORGIVE ME

and i say this to me

please love me, please forgive me
protect my fragile heart
you are the only one, the only one
who can tear it all apart

please love me, please forgive me
embrace this shattered mind
you are the only one, the only one
who knows how to be so kind

please love me, please forgive me
light a fire in my soul
you are the only one, the only one
who can stop me from losing control

please love me, please forgive me
take care of me forever
you are the only one, the only one
who accepted the idea of never

IV. NEVER

never will there ever be anyone for you
never will you find a way out buried in these blues
never will you ever know the light of your true love
never will the angels offer guidance from above

never will you find inner peace of heart and mind
never will you know the ectasy of love's pure glow
never will you feel heaven's touch you know is real
never will you see the light that comes to set us free

please let me find the day
where i will never feel this way
please can i have just one more try
before i finally lose my mind

please i beg you just one chance
it wouldn't kill you to take a chance
and please i beg i've lost control
please someone save my lonely soul

V. IT'S TOO LATE

it's too late
no it's never too late

i wanna give up
don't you ever give up

it's too late
no it's never too late

i can't hold on
man you better hold on

VI. FIND A WAY

the confusion fades away
into a peaceful pleasant day
i don't think i can feel the pain
all i've left to say
love please find a way
Track Name: I Am
pretending to be who i think i am
i reach down and take myself by the hand
and lead me through the valley of tears
and teach myself how there is nothing to fear

i am the light
i am the way
i am the truth
i am today

i am the moon
i am the sun
i am life
i am the one

and when i see
the heaven that lives inside of me
i will know
i am everything
there will be no suffering

alive in my creation
a beautiful perfection
control my reaction
embrace with no hesitation
and love with no exception
