New Horizon 05:02
[6am] pinned down by the Fliers, fight away crawl in shifting sand long ago my fight was desire but now my fight is for those who fear to land [9am] • called out by the Criers • fear to stay • cross the coastal stand   long ago my fear was desire but now my fear is for those who dare to land and you … my words that night “After the storm - when it's all over we’ll lift our heads for the new horizon!”   “Come take my hand - I’ll take you with me, we’ll make it there - our adventure’s just begun!” [4pm]   • preyed on by the Miters • loss - dismay • bleeding down the strand   long ago my loss was desire but now my loss is not knowing where to land and you … my words that night! “After the storm - when it's all over, we’ll lift our heads for the new horizon!”   “Come take my hand - I’ll take you with me we’ll make it there - our adventure’s just begun!”   ~solo~ After the storm, when it’s all over, we’ll lift our heads on this new horizon! You’ll take my hand, I’ll take you with me, we’ll make it here!   The third planet from the sun.

in ships that dropped from the sky I raided graves to ask “why?” an archeologist’s son now under cover of carriage covert traders in passage safeguard me on the run I took the scrolls from the darkness of a well and now I’m haunted by what they foretell! look out your days that follow! watch out for come tomorrow! the ancient wisdom of ages and the voices of sages in the end had their say but these voluminous pages cuneiforms that presage us tell how we lost our way her words were lost in the darkness where none dwell and now I’m hunted by those who would sell! look out your days that follow! watch out for come tomorrow! reach out to ease your sorrow! seek out for come tomorrow ~solo~ he lost himself in the darkness of that well and like my father before me I’ll pray not tell look out your days that follow! watch out for come tomorrow! reach out she’ll ease your sorrow! seek out for come tomorrow

Shine 04:39
in the distance dance the tribal flames and the men all gather to them lifting voices up to call my name celebrate my life in poem   hidden huddled at the edge of night children whisper once up to me through the days they are all chasing light though they find this darkness freeing   on this special day in this special way I’ve been waiting for my fire call   shine dance and call me to a new way shine let my myth be life for you to find   fearing facing an eternity Mistress of the Gods consoles me behind her veil lies the mystery and our fire songs set me now free   on this special day in this special way I’ve been waiting for my fire call   shine dance and call me to a new way shine let my myth be life for you to find

in the river of history on the banks of hypocrisy we’re all that matters   in the quiver of agency, on the flanks of democracy, we’ve never waited   gunshots all around you and you wonder but you don’t know why   children’s arms surround you and your saddened when they ask you why   out on the streets we follow the lead into the light   we’re all the same chasing the name into in the light   on the needing of currency, in the place of identity, we’re all that matters   on the seeding of fantasy, in the face of reality, we’ve never waited   stranger’s words spellbound you and you wonder but you don’t know why   children’s words astound you and your saddened but you must ask why   it’s so absurd we follow the herd into the light   we’re all the same chasing the game into the light   ~solo~   it’s so absurd we follow the herd into the light   we’re all the same chasing the game into the light   out on the streets we follow the lead into the light   we’re all the same chasing the name …

Endlessly 05:18
deep snow all around, her voice hanging in the air I shouldered the door, determined to break from there   now, I know what I must do make to any port back home to you   pushed over the hill, I swore she was standing there eyes white in the night, black hair in the blizzard air   yes, I know what I must do make to every port back home to you   through the darkest nights on the stormy seas I’ll be thinking of you, always endlessly   through the mountains high and in dungeons deep you’re my vision of choice, always endlessly   made passage at dawn, a captain who trades my way still secret the book, strange text that will haunt my days   oh, I know what I must do make to every port back home to you   through the darkest nights on the stormy seas I’ll be thinking of you, always endlessly   through the mountains high and in dungeons deep you’re my vision of choice, always endlessly   ~solo~   through the darkest nights I’ll be thinking of you, always endlessly   through the mountains high and in dungeons deep you’re my vision of choice, always endlessly   through the darkest nights over stormy seas   through the mountains high and in dungeons deep you’re my vision of choice, always endlessly

standing at the headland of your life feelings break like waves down below   searching for the answers you can’t find fighting back the tears that would flow   I know you’ll make it make it all right you can’t forsake it make it a fight!   hold your head high you know what you can do when holding your head high you’ll see beyond the edge and you’ll fly!   awaiting a magnificent skyfall praying all the gods would allow   knowing you’ve been generous to all hoping for salvation somehow   I know you’ll make it make it all right you can’t forsake it make it a fight! hold your head high you know what you can do when holding your head high you’ll see beyond the edge and you’ll fly!   ~solo~   I know you’ll make it make it all right you can’t forsake it make it a fight!   hold your head high you know what you can do when holding your head high you’ll see beyond the edge and you’ll fly!

on a dark arctic evening it’s late in the season the snow howling strands me in hell   the lantern light leaning I struggle with reading from scrolls hidden deep down a well   o hear my words soothing your despair   heed my words fighting your despair The Mistress of the Gods!   symbols strange and blaspheming they predate the meaning of cuneiform texts that we’ve known   I speak the words weeping and struggle with sleeping dreams haunt me with fears that have grown   o hear my words soothing your despair   heed my words fighting your despair   The Mistress of the Gods!   ~solo – the break for home~   on a dark arctic evening it’s late in the season through high mountains ancient gods moan   swirling out of the snow in the lantern light’s glow comes the Goddess with psalms of her own   “o hear my words soothing your despair”   “sing my words fighting your despair”   “o heed my words saving your despair”   “fear my words facing your despair”   The Mistress of the Gods!   ~outro~

Givin' It Up 03:48
roarin’ down the coastline mayhem breakin’ all around flames engulf the engine no quarter to be found flashin’ in the heavens violent burstin’ from the sky all my men around me no one questions why givin’ it up with nothin’ to spare givin’ it up with no repair keepin’ our line steady radio breakin’ up inside smoke flies past the windows one last hellish ride linin’ the horizon airships liftin’ from the sea we all can’t believe it no place we’d rather be givin’ it up with nothin’ to spare givin’ it up with no repair
9.
these days of sorrow shall be our last I’m on my way, now forgive my past   lay my body on the ground I shall rise bathed in light   these days of sorrow they will not last I’ll give my life, now the die is cast   share my body when I’m found as we’re told in new light   time how many times have we all cried hungry and so alone   I promise I’m coming home to you my friends   lives how many lives far from their own lost on this broken road   I know I’ll be going through the gates of evermore   ~at the gates ~   time how many times have we all cried hungry and so alone   please know I am coming home to you my friends   lives how many lives far from their own lost on this broken road   I know I have made it through the gates of evermore

Hold On 05:45
after midnight the siege engines tumble the wall all hell breaks loose, and fills us with dread   frantic orders and our cries of pain in the hall fill the courtyard, where royalty fled   and ‘till the end   men “we’ll still defend!”   while you pretend the only thing to do is   men “hold on!”   we hold on our lives are all for one   wounds lay opened our blood flows down drains in the hall to the river we enter, flow red   life is over my king doesn’t know me at all now with no dreams, I wait with the dead and ‘till the end   men “we’ll still defend!”   while you pretend the only thing to do is   men “hold on!”   we hold on our lives had just begun   take care account for what’s been lost   beware and understand the cost   men or you will need us more!   ~solo~   take care account for what’s been lost   beware and understand the cost   men or you will lose us all!
11.
so much access some things you couldn’t know realize what you’ve been waiting for you embrace your changing story (unknown to the world) now you don’t know where to go (which side you’re on)   too much access some things you wouldn’t know worried from what you weren’t waiting for caught up in the hidden story and you don’t understand which way to go   are you lost and lonely? and you don’t know where to go? touch the sky!   live for access say things you shouldn’t know make the name that you’ve been waiting for you embrace your made-up story but you don’t understand which way to go   are you lost and lonely? and you don’t know where to go? touch the sky!
