Track Name: Muddy Waters
I was born so long ago, do hardly remember it at all
Born into a pit of mud, muddy water
Refused to breathe the air, that’s all around
Wanted to live without hearing another sound

And that day I found that there was not a choice
And that day I found it spinnin’ to the ground

I was born again right here in her lies
Its all just a rollin’ of the dice,
And you know the price so buy it or leave it,
Send or receive, I’m part of it and it is me and all that I can see

And that day I found it trampled to the ground
And all that I had left was a cat already dead in the head

It was born again with its skull in my hand
Sweat had bled to seas, that I sail to unveil
What my mind can’t hold, will burst into fireworks
So you can see the fire in the sky
But at least at last I burn, at least at I burn

Then that day you’ll find, there’s not much left of me
What remains, when the absence of sound is leaving the ground
Track Name: Skin
I'm the air between the people
you can see through me
I'd been waiting for salvation
but still waitin here for thee
So now I stand here
already part of this town
Always hummung with eyes closed
and a bitter frown

And you will wash all the skin off of yourself
Until there's nothing left but your bones

I'm the tears in all your eyes
If you see through me
the whole world blurs in your mind
But is it meant to be?
So now you stand here
already part of my frown
Ever more crying with your eyes closed
to forget this town.

And you will wash all the skin off of yourself
Until there's nothing left but your bones
Track Name: Noise From Beyond the Sea
- Instrumental -
Track Name: Joker in the Paper Cup
The joker's on the run
and him reaching for the sun
did make the court cry out
'How may he dare? That's doubt!'

So now the joker smiles no more
but laughing by the shore and in the spray
he stands and hoists his sail
and veils his grin, it's lovely sin

Poseidons creatures squeak and sing
The octopus wore eight all golden rings
The joker broods and whistles a song
His brains work hard and out comes a drone

But slightly occurs an idea to him:
'The workers are drones, the joker's the queen.'
And all of their questions, he'll answer them so:
'Oh, I am your answer, now enjoy the show!'

And floating along he hauls something up
A joke ever green and hopeful as sin:
'We live in a world in a paper cup!'
And no one shall ever forget, who has seen that

Poseidons creatures squeak and sing
The octopus wore eight all golden rings
The joker broods and whistles a song
His brains work hard and out comes a drone

[Instrumental Solo]

But, alas! He was drifting too far to the edge
and fell into nothing from the arms of existence
So nothing that ever had crossed his mind
will he ever be able to leave behind

The joker's no more on the run
for he has turned into the sun
His last joke made the court grow still
Isn't this life quite fun?

Track Name: Cosmic Noise
And in the corner of my eye
Cosmic noise holds a die
A game to play it offers me
But as I turn, it's gone, I'm released

'I'm free?' I ask to no one there
And as I ask the will lies bare
I shut my eyes and hope to be
Captive on 1,2,3

But nothing happened so I stood
Still wonder, what I could and I should
But total emptiness drops in
The ice a-startin to grow thin

My holy freedom morphs to fear
The nothing man bends down to hear
But I have not a word to say
Which scares me in a thousand ways

So I just grab a pair of dice
The eyes are me, the die decides
The nothing ceases its effect
I'm man, I'm free and I stand erect

I'm slave in chains of chance at last
It is what will be and what's passed
The cosmic noise has hushed by now
I stand confused and take a bow

Track Name: Polarity
You and I, we're one and the same,
just hold'n on to what……
keeps us in two.

As Polarity, it tries.

Take a look at a timeless exchange
of what the water and the wave sink into……

As Polarity, it dives.

Two unto,
see and we'll dissolve completely.
Two unto,
three and we'll build a bridge through.
Two unto,
see, now we've dissolved completely.
To undo two, can bring us through

Dance around a circle twice,
then bring your thought to it's edge.
Draw another circle round.

Can you begin to see,
all of…what is… you and me.
Rise and fall, ocean ebbs and flows...
inside us all.

You and I, we're one and the same,
just hold'n on to what
keeps us in two.

As Polarity, it thrives.

Take a look at what's timeless…it's change.
Is there nothing more for us,
to hold on to.

As Polarity, it dies.

Two unto,
see and we'll dissolve completely.
Two unto,
three and we'll build a bridge through.
Two unto,
look now what we hold on too.
To undo two can bring us through!
Track Name: Selene
From the water rises her pale, blue secret smile
And the watery veil is vanished with the tide
The seamen howl their sad ole song
And I play along

Oh Selene, comfort me tonight
Oh Selene, stay with me into the morning light

On the waters edge the fish are jumpin' to the sky
This extraordinary clear night runs a chill over the earth
My ole lady soars in the sun 'most every night
And the moon, she sits up high and smiles

Oh Selene, comfort me tonight
Oh Selene, stay with me into the morning light

So now the morning comes
And I cry for my little girl
But when I look up, I see her pale soft eyes back in my world
Track Name: The Wake
CHAPTER I: The Wake

In my wake, in my wake
See the water curl and break
Open seas, all your ships wrecked at ease
Hurry on to the end of time

In my wake, in my cage
Your planks all tremble and they shake
Like a cat I lay death to your feet
Take your gift and chew it up to the bone

CHAPTER II: King of the Seven Seas / In the Blue

I'm the lord of all the seven seas
And every little rock and handful of sand you see belongs to me
I got the world in my hands and
I'll be drowning you all, so you shall rest here with me

Remember what I said:
It's all wrong
Swim my son
I'm awaiting you
Now, dive into the blue

In the blue it doesn't matter anymore
Who you are today
In the blue it doesn't matter anymore
Who you were one day
I'll take all your fault, I'll take all your shame
Let me wash you with my salt
Now, open your eyes a-new and feel no more shame
Lock outside the world so cruel

CHAPTER III: The Raging & the Calm / Chaos & Array

- all instrumental -

CHAPTER IV: The Marriage / In the Blue (Reprise)

Now, my heir, that you know one day this'll all be yours
How do you feel?

You know the sea provides
And you and the sea must never divide
For, now you are one
And you're my son
Track Name: Through the Snow
I'd been running through the town
Searching for a clue to you
The city's eyes and the old are watching
me walk into the blackish blue

All the steps I can hear through the walls
All heavy hammers I hear fall
The rolling waste and the trash inside
The sound returns but costs the light

And the way we're slipping through the snow
Feels like we knew just where to go
Upon the trees we feel just like the only ones
But it's freezing cold, freezing cold here

And then the ice cracks below our feet
And in our minds, well, there grows a seed

The aeroplanes outside my window
Blur what's possible and what's real
Swallowing all the plastic people
That won't seem to think or feel

And then the ice cracks below our feet
And in our minds, well, there grows a seed

All the faces I try to remember
Crumble into one folded smile
All light floods like through amber
But the words are, oh, so vile

Then the picture comes back into sight
Its revelation feels just right
I put my ear down to the ground and
Once again I can hear no sound
