Track Name: The World of Color and Light
With this song I’ll recreate the
night the light the ease of our sa-
cred moment living in the world
of color and light.

Timeless Time,
Space between,
Wake and dream.

With this song I’ll live again
inside the breath of our brief flight sa-
cred moment sun tucks behind pain-
ted blossoms sky fills our eyes.

Dusk or dawn,
Space between
Wake and dream,
beyond the veil
of our eyes
pulled beneath
Tides of time
calling us home.



This world is not my home.

Inside one sacred moment is life.
Track Name: Walk the Line
The highest heights are rattled by the wind
It’s a long way up, but a longer, longer, longer way down
Just holding on to the seams just like a pin
No threads can mend the worlds of love and sin.

Walking the line between
Fall in the mud and get clean.

A virtue holding steady in the wind,
A fragile bliss is taking root within
The holy and the exhibitionist,
The prude, the slut, the hunger of a kiss

Walking the line between
Fall in the mud and get clean.
Walking between the lines
See the face of death, face of light.
Track Name: Judas
I am in the land of Judas
Does anyone know whose truth this is?
As it has been woven
one pull can make it come undone
the Garden lay unkept, burning in the sun

I am in the land of Judas
everybody knows we’re just a work in progress
one pull of this golden thread
lifts the veil over our weary head
to see the world below where all the silent ugly things are hiding

You who know my hiding place
illuminate
You must come here
alone.

True love won’t run dry.

I am in the land of Judas
fruit in hand
taken from the Garden
does anyone know whose fruit this is?
it tasted real until a taste of Kiss
to forge the world below----shadows in the sun.
Track Name: Music Box
Who cast the rhythm of day?
Who moves my hands to play?
Who seed the flowers bloom
Turning the waters with the moon?

Know as everything falls apart
Just to know that the sun will rise
We are thrown in the alchemist’s fire
To forge a heart of gold

Who brought me to this place?
Is that who will take me out?
Heavy is the veil on my face
Between where I’m going, and where I come from.

Know as everything falls apart
Just to know the sun will rise
We are thrown in the alchemists fire
To forge a heart of gold
And only then will I know to sing
Just to know the sun will rise
It is already Known.
Track Name: Light From Light
And the way to your heart is never through your head.
And the way to the sun is hardly through the moon.
We can drink up the sun as it enters this empty room.
I can open the door.a
I can welcome you in.

Light from light
return to the One who paints these funny scenes.

I can open the door,
I can welcome you in.
We can smell all the flowers
beauty underneath our feet
above, below, a thousand names.
We can feel all the wind
We can drink up the stars as they poke through an empty night.
We can stare in our eyes
We can listen for quieter things.....

Light from light
return to the One who paints these funny scenes.
Track Name: Oceania
Holding to this grain of sand
Vast expanding meaningless
Oceania where’s the pearl?
Nestled deep inside some holding on

Falling down into the heart

Gentle revelation love
Love like blood from whitest bird
Bleeding through we cannot hide
Bleed straight through, sun hollow white

Near the ocean where they meet
Crashing waves against their feet
Lovers cavernous and deep
Longing for eternity

Even now you take him from me
Into the arms of love they take their leave

She can feel his loneliness
Scrape across the ocean floor
He can feel her Holy kiss
Healing all that’s ever been
He can feel her loneliness
Scrape across the ocean floor
She can feel his holy kiss
Healing all that’s even been

Even now you take him from me
Into the arms of love they take their leave
Even now you take him from me
Into the arms of Love….

Sei la mi anima.
Track Name: Flowers and Blood
Love is
Flowers and blood.

Runs through the body
Makes our hearts heavy
Gift of the flowers
Open like lovers
Love for the painful
Changes to flowers
Feel how I’m broken
Broke into flowers

La da da da da, La da da da da

Love breaks us open
Open like flowers
Feel how we’re bleeding
Welcome the flowers
Blood through the body
Love makes us heavy
Heavy like water
Water the flowers.

La da da da da, La da da da da
Track Name: Lullaby in Suspension
Moonlight
From the sun
Passes through me.
Hold tight
Let it come
We're not moving.

You're my night
In the day
Like the ocean
We wave.

Sunrise
From a cloud
Look it's blooming.
Your eyes
From their shroud
Push and pull me.

You're my night
In the day
Like the ocean
We wave.

Hold my light
As a phase
Like the ocean
We wave.

You're my night
In the day
Like the ocean
We wave.
Track Name: Pangaea's Lullabye
If I lie here while you are sleeping,
Do you know I am here?
Like a dream upon awaking,
Time will fade into the sun.

Hear the drum of our hearts breaking -
it is you who is my heart.
My love is everlasting,
Time will fade into the sun.

As you go into the waking
Always know I am here
Greet the dawn the birds of morning
Time will fade into the sun.
