Track Name: Paramount
Nobody's on level with his ideals all the time
For we all pull away
Some, with northen grudge at heart cast dreams upon the shore
With a thespian crawl
Fighting for the peace
Barring doors to keep them open

Idle minds in backlight
Ideal minds in foresight
Isolated in crass display

Envy laid the ground for some to score on other's work
They are desperate saints
Now in wake of aggradation noone really cares
With the granted means
Granted room to live
Draining blood to keep it flowing

Idle minds in backlight
Ideal minds in foresight
Isolated in crass display

Wonders, how can we feed the nature of the goodwill?
Wonders, how can we feed the hungry on the downhill?
Wonders, how we all ended up in charge of your mill

Powers, it wasn't enough to gaurantee your dinners
So there is call for us to hold on to our ideals
Give us your body and we'll grant you right to it

Catch him while he's sad, he will build you a pad
Thus we cannot mould the gold for all, why mould at all?
Daily bread is enough

Taxing means to build
Tying hands to keep them working

Idle minds are paramount
Ideal minds are paramount
Isolated in each recount

One is down by noon, all will fall out for the common
Everyone's assured noone fails with good intentions
One's quest of life is another's bell to freeload
Track Name: Unfairy Tales on Preacher's Avenue
He's white like you and sure condemns the piglets unheard at night
So if his hat can shade you from the unsung truth, you laud him loud
And if he fails and dies, like Jesus he can rise to stun the crowd

And you believe them as they say you're soon to be a failure deep
And that it's okay for as long he's there to sing your soul to sleep
He tells about how you can't lose if someone's there to see you weep

There is a truth, and then it's yours and then it's mine alright
But when we try to tell it, we know it's not really right
And everytime I try, you shudder and withdraw in fright
You shun the light

He's very clear on telling how the lights have not been on for years
He guards the lambs in growing up only to raise their low-life fears
so that his lines can endure all throughout their wine induced night tears

There was a youth, and there was yours and there was mine alright
But when we try compare it, we'll just end up in a fight
And you would only rest upon his shoulder in belief he's in the right

I see but I can't believe, touch but I can't feel
I hear you but know you reflect a world I never knew
Is there a meaning with demi-gods cleaning
the sight of a street daily walked on?

I want you to show me so that I can show you
Glad that I found you but sad that you're still to find me
Your anthems are off-tune, to please the content loon
On monday reset, proceed careless

I thought among the others you were not an easily led
Perhaps you never understood a single word I said
It's easy to suspect the ones who never tried to get to your bed

You never really knew what I was up to
Never took my word for it when hearing about my world
But if you ever should remember one thing, then remember this:
You're in there too
Have you ever caught a baby trying to peek under you skirt?
Well, that is what will happen as he tells how it will hurt
And cheers to drink his summer from an hourglass for grand dessert

Show me that you are the angel you try hard to look like
Get down from that white horse, noone sees you when you hitch-hike
City gents complain how they'll never play the parlours of their scorn

They've made all the clubs, drunk all your drinks, wet all your loo seats
There, a script to which you can apply to be extolled
And for once a truth his guru cashed in on when coining our youth

Quit pretending you care to feel what's beside good looks
You don't want it for real; good measure applies from books
Well, I'll say it straight to your faces; indeed, you're all vouge sore kooks

So, have you got the mind enough to think outside the box?
And have you got the heart enough to rise above the rocks?
I bet you think I preach as well, but then you're wrong, I'm just like you

Dawn feeds a beauty in a world noone cared for
Noon deals with all things woe and cried at by your cross
Evening assures you that we're bound to keep trying
Night comes on down just to hide your every tear

So, I couldn't bear to leave you here
only to conceal your life
There's a world still to be mirrored in the poet's lines
where all is revealed, where truth is for real
Where all can concieve of what we really think and feel

So, will you come or will you stay by that preacher?
Stay by the sorrow and listen to his fears?
Or finally tomorrow find truth in all these tears?
Track Name: Scram!
Pictures of yesterday, pictures of true decay
Pictures accounting for reasons to believe that it's okay
Leave where you once begun
Leave, make it all undone
Leave like you did when you finally decided I was done

Missing out the world in a vague vision it will never bloom
Keeping quite a way from all things real
just in case it might spoil the dream

Tell me scram
Tell it to my face I'm not your kind
Send me back to where I never knew the one I lost
Tell me scram
Tell it to my face I'm dead and gone
Don't sit up and wait behind the door you closed before

Noone is taught today what is the proper way to show who's on your side
Say now what you said yesterday
Pictures have tricked them all, through this here wicked fall
So they believe it's good
Wrong, it can be right if noone hears you

Hope you have a good time like it turned
I'm not welcome there
Love's a bunch of songs that noone will hear
If you really care, leave him there

Tell me scram
Tell it to my face I'm not your kind
Send me back to where I never knew the one I lost
Tell me scram
Tell it to my face I'm dead and gone
Don't sit up and wait behind the door you closed before
Track Name: Quantum
Thoroughly considered
Carefully decided to be fit to the model of aligned means and ends
Cause and effect, outcome prearranged
Look at the equations as they sum up too well
Pure oscillation, quantum precognintion
Feeling good or bad or anyhow the quarks decide
So noone ever change, they only flow along

At the faculty of (public sponsoring)
philosophers and physicians settled a common case:
Since every quark is constituted of the waves
excited by past events, our life is no different from the dead

So what you really say is that I'm a case, an inanimate device

Couldn't it be like our very human nature
constitutes of a reasoning and a concious stream?
I cannot grasp the notion of a programmed mind
Would it state why I chose to turn up late?
Or why she passed then, and why my heart raced by her sight
Then it's preordained, me asking her out

You're starting to conceive - It's purely quantum leap

This discovery rejects our human soul
That foul old idea that you can choose your own goal
Suddenly everyone got meaning to their life
It proved as though the meaning was only casuality

I'm a leaf in the wind
I'm a stone down the hill
My act is an outcome of everything else
And everyone all around
merely react to me
The purpose at hand is matter, not sense

Turned to a nihilist
Not a motive in use, humanism I refuse
Newly born determinist
Anything that I do, it has always been due
Don't know what I see, don't know where to be
All I know is that everything that I render
is just one big illusion

Good to know that it's all free from valuation
The cold is the hard is the only regard
Heisenberg got it down to a random decree
So all that you know is a yield of the quark

Turned to a fatalist
Anyone up for bet that the future is set?
A true existentialist
What I am I am not, I'm an ego in a plot
Don't know if you're there, or if I even care
All I know is that everything I want to be
is just one big delusion

Say what you will but we're going down
Say what you will but we're going down

But just this morning, when I chose between the sandwich and the bun
- equal outcome, equal worth
Then how could the subatomic orbits of shuffling strings
reach for the ham and cheese?
Parallel universe where the time can reverse?

And then she came to me
Could I really imply anything to her eye?
Matter in congruence
Or a concious mind examining the find?
- I'm in distress
I've got to string together casuality and freewill to make sense out life

- That's what you did right now, the cause was your working mind
You mentioned it earlier, it's our nature to think like the stone is to sink

- Oh my god, you're right
Though I'll fail my degree if I claim that I am free
I will do, and if I don't I will still be the master of me
So let's go out tonight
If there is no tomorrow our teacher was right
And thus we might as well
skip our class in the morning, and blame the quantum might
Track Name: The Light Brigade in the Vallrey of Death
Half a league, half a league onward
All in the death valley steep
'Charge for guns', he sent the light brigade
A six and a hundred down for to leap the ones to kill
'Don't slow down, the numbers will prevail the quest for peace and freedom'
'Guns don't kill unless we do'
With sergeant's vow echoing in their heads
The league sets down the valley of death

Sabres bare flashing in the sun
Same old sun still guarding over their homes
All to know is a battle fought to show
what comes around when things go wrong and out of hand
'Forward, Light Brigade!' Was there a man dismayed?
Not though the soldier knew someone had failed
There's no reply, there is no reason why
There's nothing here to do but die


And in the valley the cannons all surrounded
They volleyed and thundered, stormed with shot and shell
And boldly they rode and well
Noone ever knew
Apart from that they were the crew
to cease the fire by fireing on command
And though it's burning more wildly than ever
The fuel's not ever taken away

Glory high, the more the number died
A brave myth to retell the kids back home
Heroes end, they gave in under the flag
The valley doesn't care whoever is within reach for lead
Who can tell with justice in their hearts and freedom in their minds
Their wives and kids who shared their sun
'I'm sorry ma'am, he's never coming home'
'He owned up for the valley of death'

Calleth calm truce, cometh cold fire
Whereever the barrels aim
The jaws of hell are chewing through the flesh into the bone
A holy sacrifie, a divine mean hears no cry
One life is but a smokestack in the sky
And there in the valley, one battle none can win
The purpose high went down when all of them died
Track Name: Sight of the Season
Sight of the season
As the springlight turns on
the guidance to where I'm yet to go
The greatest of reasons
Endless beauty withholds
every turn to a common goal

Light of the reason
But the rain dimmed the chance
for a green scented rendezvous
Sun wakes the early
as he finds an excuse to rebuild his recent bower

The seasons were drawn
with a lady arriving with dawn
But the vision remains
a reminder of yearning
all the while she gets unto the path

Edge of the woodland
There has always been nymphs
where the untouched forest begun
The sprite as the fiddler
hanging round for a chance
to play out his sincere adoring

The meadows unfold
and the sun will be warming the cold
And the vision remains
a reminder of yearning
all the while she gets unto the path

I recall the scenery
A delayed winter laid down
when a lady crossed right through the hall
with blossom undone
Any word all yet to conjure
Any tune all yet to play
So I could not really hope to raise
expressions for display

When the moon is on a mean streak
and the lightpole sheds its beam
the undressing of our buckled brains
reveals inner dreams
Then a sudden encounter
yielded signs for all to see
And I dared not think such beauty could
ever apply to me

What's the trigger for the ones
who never needed confirmation?
Give me a forest where act is derived from a reason
Prolonged youth seasoned with guidance
Fear of ending all the readings
Hers is a digest, mine is an expired edition
Still a fiddler entertaining
looking for an audience
Then for a moment of glow
Could it really be true that she set for the show?

I don't mind the desert
if the night oasis yielded water
Though when the trees trade their room, I can't take how it's growing
So much for a show of hearts
The room is friendly - temporarily
Noone could tell if she's ever sincere with her smile
Though, I'm sure if I could make it last
I would rewrite the past
Is it a fall when the dreams of the night
always seem to lead back to her sight?

So, the sun may be warming the cold
But it won't ever show what I'm told
So the vision remains a reminder of yearning
all the while she gets unto the path

Sight of a season
But the season denied any more reasons to abide
So, on with the treason
of the heart trying to clear out the reasons of her beside
Track Name: Full Moon Walpurgis
Keep your head off any common duty
Get the worries out and fill it plenty
It's a time without any tomorrow
Here to keep the crowds within the streets
For once again a full moon walpurgis

There's no place for thinking or reflecting
while the dazing shroud enforce oblivion
They were clever to redden enough days
to remain in charge when crowds turn on
and drop out under a full moon

Then wake up in the noon sun blazing in
through bottles and recalled turn-offs
The week is closing in
And you wonder how to endure

So it goes, a measured way of taming
too concerned minds and arouse acclaiming
through the roots of fasioned douse affection
Everyone otherwise by their sense
dropping out under a full moon walpurgis
Track Name: I Hate That I Love you So Much I Wish I Hated You Like I Hate Myself For Loving You So Much
A beautiful morning
I wish I could share it with someone as lovely as this
That someone is you
Gently warming
Sunshine that pledges of hope while the mist and the dew
return the day to you

Yet so deceiving
Never so bright and inviting as the morning is due, as beautiful as you

Hanging around, trying to find an excuse
to make clear what I feel and maybe even arouse
But the night has let me down
And I hope the morning never comes
until you're here beside
For I cannot stand the phony vow
of a day of lover's bloom
over which the sun will rise and shine

Enlightened forebodings
I wish I could care for all beauty
But the one thing I do admire is you
But it's hurting, knowing your morning commenced
by another horizon that I will never reach

Tell me, how does it feel knowing sunshine
is always there for you
Knowing that your happiness is due?
Tell me, how does it feel being the one?
Being cared for like no other
if I could only get the chance?

Shall I tell how it feels to be knowing
that the sun will never shine
sincerely like it seemed to do?
Shall I tell that the one sun is you?
No matter how the night is lingering, you bring the light

(But) The sun has let me down
And I know it will not rise again
until you're here beside
I won't live down the phony vow
of a day of lover's bloom
over which the sun will shine
And your beauty makes me cry
in that I know you're not around
If you ever will be mine
I'd make the morning scenery
come true in that the day
will breath of everlasting love

(I hate that I love you
so much that I wish that I
hated you like I hate
myself for loving you so much)
Track Name: No Candle
Fall is loosening ties of past bloom
The rain has paved the ways of treasons cold
No warmth in the sun, no distance run
Again the pain that comes with love unfolds

Look past the drunk nights where I can't afford your heart
Mine is so cheap right now, I don't even know where to start

Those who look for the edge of time, I could reveal it
It's now, I don't know how to proceed from here
Dreams that'll never grow past my front door
Outside the roads lead firmly to nowhere

Since I found out I held no candle from the start
once again for all to see there is no purpose for my heart

She's like the sky above, under which all is love
She's like the seeds I sow to make the whole world bloom
Last of the flowers left, so pure and beautiful
Though, when the night broke down she left with but a void

Island, what have you done to my recent desire?
Friday band, have you met my recent rival of July?
Torched hand, how they turned the night so dire and real
So I think of you, baby, and your consorting ideal

Angel, did you descend to show me how to feel?
Or to leave once you paved the way for what my heart concealed?
Great thoughts how confessions would finally revive
I would die for you if you only had left me alive

Though I found out I held no candle from the start
once again for all to see you are the purpose for my heart

Fall is lingering, smothering my garden
The sky she painted crumbled by the fence
It's not september moons or cold afternoons
that keep her eyes from brighten where she goes

I know her garden well, she cannot hide from tell
how things are golden even in the darkest hour
I know that I'd provide, but yet I'm forced to hide
Waiting to bring the light and make her flower grow

Island, what have you done to my recent desire?
Friday band, have you met my recent rival of July?
Torched hand, how they turned the night so dire and real
So I think of you, baby, and your consorting ideal

Angel, did you descend to show me how to feel?
Or to leave once you paved the way for what my heart concealed?
Great thoughts how confessions would finally revive
I would die for you if you only had left me alive

So, I've no choice now but to stay aside and wait
If tomorrow will ever come I hope I'm not too late

Just one time, to sing my love
without the thickness of the air
without the grand despair of the night
when she brings all the light
I could ever need to fill my heart with life

Just one time, to hear my love returned
with all the luck they say
and for what I have prayed
in the night, on a quest for the light
I would die for her to bring the love to life
Track Name: Alcubierre Drive
Turning mills have brought me down for good
Yes, it's understood I don't belong here
I never really grasped your plan
Yes, indeed I am mistakenly raised here
The wrong side of the plot along the line of space and time

Your rock'n roll is trite, your wines are flat
You're all one big letdown
Your world is not enough for the knowledge laid before you
I hear the calls each time I frown: "You're square and out of time"
Meanwhile they sport their edges, and hence their squared old hedges
You're said to care, but won't beware of noone but yourselves
So, I turn away from you, and you, and you...

I don't know wether back or forth, downward or up
There is no casuality, backward or forth
There's a crack in reality, stretching ahead
There's a feeling that I concieve realms of the dead

When the light carries all we see and understand
and it won't catch a refugee drifting off-hand
there's a warp in his travelogue and in the route
Noone will ever comprehend, visions dilute

In a trans-dimensional tunnel of years
He caught sight of an ancient hoax, fuelling our fears
There is no way to get it down for to be read
Would they ever believe it all, through what he said?

How could time not enforce a route through universe?
How could multiple directions (never resolved)
ever be when they won't affect facts of our time?
We don't buy that he ever went off to insight

Oh, I can't even wait to tell what I have found
A complete tale of everything, down to the ground
In the slice we are living in, laying between
a line of equally profound everythings

So, we no longer have to be bound to our time
No judging of our difference, no further crime
No need to hangaround and wait for what is mine
Transcendental integrity is now aligned

Speeding, drifting, warping, freezing, seeing nothing
Hearing everything, though lonely
Shut outside from time and space as we have known it
Exceed the speed of light only to feel alone again

Reaching, touching, sensing, feeling, almost, still not
Clearly longing, repent leaving
Hoped to clear the sights of dream reality
The price I'd have to pay exceeds all gain we could reclaim

So, I'll never understand your plan 'cos indeed I am inside it all
The vision of reality, it was marred since eyes are real as well
Meanwhile, I drift along outside your slice and watch
And dream, to tell...
Track Name: Ginger Evening
The day hours are shrinking
Dazzling turn gleaming
And the rays of the sun
are well done heating up the ground

The mist of the morning
carving our breaths
into halos of clouds,
emphasized by the chill

How many miss out delights of
bringing life to fall
Preoccupied by mourning
the sultry cloak of noonsun

Watch the monochrome green hedgerows
turn ginger and cherry
Don't you wish our mother nature
resting in the snowy bed
All pursuits are down to where we're led

The street of the dim lamps
School days all over again
And the burn of firewood
perfumes your sight along the lane

A walk in the parklane
framed by ageing briars
Fully seasoned by the apples
leaves surrounding all her hair

How many miss out delights of
bringing life to fall
Preoccupied by mourning
the sultry cloak of noonsun

Watch the monochrome green hedgerows
turn ginger and cherry
Don't you wish our mother nature
resting in the snowy bed
The premature night air runs to my head

Ginger evening sky
Can't help wonder why
people turn it down
Track Name: Goodbye
You say you want a friend
You say it like you mean it well
But still you don't repent what you've done

You say you are a friend
and thusly one on whom I should depend
But still you just pretend

All these winks and faint remarks
and moves and words of seeming care
How d'you ever think I could let go
of you standing right there?
Now I'm done, I have paved your way
to the one you claim will save your day
What do you need me for now?
What can I do for you now?
Am I still in there somehow?
You should know, I'll be waiting
though I seem to be hating
While I'm gone you are always in my heart

It's no easy deal
when you find yourself concealing
a growing sense of bitterness and woe

Do you know the pain
of having to ignore the one you love?
If I didn't care I would be there

All this time so cleverly blind
you walked right past with love off mind
Once I fled your mind you seized your chance
for some easier find
Still you will appear in my dreams
and float along my inner streams
So I won't even say goodbye
I will stand and wait
and hope you will see why

So, if what you say is true
- how can you still put me through
this endless yearning for you?

I'm now on terms, with how you let me down and left me cold
Unconcernedly, cheeply sold for a moment of endorsement on demand
It's not love that you're in for
It cried at your front door
Your deceit will remain forever more
