Watchtower on the Moon
You've followed and you've led
You've fought until you've bled
You've sought and now you've fled
So what you gonna do now?
You've ushered in the rain
Seen new life come again
But doubting still remains
So what you gonna do now?

You're trying so hard

Did you find what you're looking for?
A glass roof or an open door?
You're hurting yourself and everyone else
Tell me who's gonna want to stand with the fire of a foolish man?
In tune with yourself, but nobody else

There is always bad to find
So push it from your mind
And let it all unwind

Your watchtower on the moon
Won't help you see the view of all that's coming soon
So what you gonna do now?
And character's what glows
What no one wants to know
But still you choose to grow
So what you gonna do now?

You're trying so hard

Did you find what you're looking for?
A glass roof or an open door?
You're hurting yourself and everyone else
Tell me who's gonna want to stand with the fire of a foolish man?
In tune with yourself, but nobody else

There is always bad to find
So push it from your mind
And let it all unwind

You're trying so hard

Did you find what you're looking for?
A glass roof or an open door?
You're hurting yourself and everyone else
Tell me who's gonna want to stand with the fire of a foolish man?
In tune with yourself, but nobody else

You're hurting yourself and everyone else
In tune with yourself, but nobody else
 
 
Unforgiven
Mirror mirror, what do you see?
A thousand faces staring back at me
One with a grievance, one with a gun
We'll count the paces in the morning sun

One thing you can sign without a witness
And that's forgiveness
And I promise

I've been trying to forgive you
For the bad times that we lived through
That would surely be a breakthrough
To change the world
That would change the world

Mirror mirror, I don't want to look
A dark reminder of the things I took
One for the wrong thing, one for the right
We'll count excuses 'til the evening light

One thing can revoke the hardest sentence
And that's repentance
And I meant it

I've been trying to forgive you
For the bad times that we lived through
That would surely be a breakthrough
To change the world
That would change the world

Does the world spin too fast for you?
Do you long to make it stop?

But this you know that the journey is good
And this you know that the mission is safe
Well you've been slated and misunderstood
But if you could take all the friction away
That would change the world

One thing can revoke the hardest sentence
And that's repentance
And I meant it

I've been trying to forgive you
For the bad times that we lived through
That would surely be a breakthrough
To change the world
That would change the world

Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
 
 
The Box
The storm was high on Monday
When someone found the box
It promised hope and future
Can't tell you what it cost
To spare us from the northern wind
As we walked our lonely track
The box was found on Monday
But I don't want to give it back

"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part!
You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels...
Upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop!
And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!"

The water tastes so sweet tonight
And the heat restores my soul
Something doesn't feel right
But it's under my control

A hunted little soul
Feeding the machine

We took their precious token
So we can use it anywhere
We marvelled at its colours
And how we're free to dream and dare
Dream and dare

The water's not so good tonight
And I think I'll just be cold
I can't afford the heat or light
And the pleasure's growing old

A hundred little souls
Feeding the machine

We took their precious token
So we can use it anywhere
We marvelled at its colours
And how we're free to dream and dare
And with their precious token
They know exactly where we've been
They wondered at our dullness
And now we're slaves to the machine

And soon there came a time
They wanted mind and soul
And all I thought was mine
Was out of my control

A hundred million souls
Lost in the machine

We took their precious token
So we can use it anywhere
We marvelled at its colours
And how we're free to dream and dare
And with their precious token
They know exactly where we've been
They wondered at our dullness
And now we're slaves to the machine

The storm was high on Monday
When someone found the box
It stole our hope and future
Can't tell you what it cost
It tore us like the northern wind
Sold us down our lonely track
The box was found on Monday
But I don't know how to give it back
 
 
Turned to Dust
I talk intention
I dream desire
I walk by the thread of the wind
And the thoughts are my own
And the thoughts are my own
It's a long road redemption
I'm a long way from home
And I'm brought down by the sound of the crowd
And the voice is my own
And the voice is my own

If light is fading for me now
I'll race the sundown
No token word or broken vow
Will hold me under
Tonight the veil will not come down
On another day of promises
Promises
Turned to dust

So pure the silence
So true the sound
I'm lost in the rumours and lies
And the thoughts are my own
And the thoughts are my own
It's a dark road denial
And there's so much I've known
So I shout out for a voice in the crowd
But I'm walking alone
But I'm walking alone

Don't understand just what I'm doing
For what I want to do I don't

If light is fading for me now
I'll race the sundown
No token word or broken vow
Will hold me under
Tonight the veil will not come down
On another day of promises
Promises
Turned to dust
(x3)
 
 
Lost in Your Memory
Do you wander through the darkness
Unaware of what you'll find
Still you know to keep on going anyway
In the strength of all the roots that grow with time

Do you suffer through the sunlight
Longing for a drop of rain
Still you know to keep on going anyway
In the knowledge that your time will come again
Before your journey's end

Hold on, keep yourself together
There are better sights to see
Hold on, this will all become a faded photograph
Lost in your memory

Was the frost too cold for comfort?
Was the pruning too severe?
Would the dead wood keep on growing or make a way
For the length of all the shoots that must appear
To help you out of here

Hold on, keep yourself together
There are better sights to see
Hold on, this will all become a faded photograph
Lost in your memory

Just one more moment and all this will be gone
And what was stolen will be returned

Every day is a testament to all the things you've done
And all you've overcome

Hold on, keep yourself together
There are better sights to see
Hold on, this will all become a faded photograph
Lost in your memory
 
 
Autumn Red
There's a whisper on the wind
That's how it all begins
And I'm always tuning in
Through the drama, through the din

Though I'm standing in the middle
This is not the end

This is no alibi
This is no change of season
This is no last reply
I find no sense or reason here
I follow every word you said
So tell me what you meant
By autumn red

There's an echo on the air
Distorting what was there
And it follows everywhere
Like a shadow, like a stare

Though I'm standing in the middle
This is not the end

This is no alibi
This is no change of season
This is no last reply
I find no sense or reason here
I follow every word you said
So tell me what you meant
By autumn red

Sometimes I know you're looking at me
Sometimes you find the greatest beauty
Sometimes you see a blaze of glory
Sometimes I know you're looking at me now

I know you're looking at me now
I know you're looking at me

This is no alibi
This is no change of season
This is no last reply
I find no sense or reason

This is no alibi
This is no change of season
This is no last reply
I find no sense or reason here
I follow every word you said
So tell me what you meant
By autumn red
 
 
The Mystery Show
Welcome to the mystery show
Welcome to the mystery show

Forget the man who had a breakthrough
And wants to tell of things to shake you
But he's so nervous of indictment
He stays at home and leaves the lights out

And the more that you grow
The less you're sure of what you know

You want to understand
This mortal masterplan
You want to travel down
A road that can't be known
You want to theorise
With eloquence and alibis
Then lose the evidence
That goes against your own

Welcome to the mystery show
Welcome to the mystery show

Forget the paranoid believer
Who heard a noise on his receiver
Instead of growing with the town folk
He stays alone out on the back roads

You want to understand
This mortal masterplan
You want to travel down
A road that can't be known
You want to theorise
With eloquence and alibis
Then lose the evidence
That goes against your own

Forget the child who used to wonder
If God's above and man is under
The more you know you need to find Him
The more your conscience tries to hide Him

And the more that you grow
The less you're sure of what you know

You want to understand
This mortal masterplan
You want to travel down
A road that can't be known
You want to theorise
With eloquence and alibis
Then lose the evidence
That goes against your own

So welcome
You're so welcome

Welcome to the mystery show
Welcome to the mystery show
Welcome to the mystery show
Welcome to the mystery show
 
 
Siren Sky
Awaken in me a warning, shake me from my sleep
Render a breathless and deserving effect in me
That I'll know, this I'll know
Effortlessly I felt the shock wave that stirred the dead
The damage plan of angels, a separatist's end
This I'll know, this I'll know

In accordance with the elements of the Earth
I've witnessed this world around me and observed
The landscape of the suffering heart reworked
The incoherent and divisive have perceived
The ever changing scenes within a dream
And its silence weighs more than can be seen

Give me a sign, colour my world
This physical theatre hurts
Give me fire, light up my world
This physical theatre burns for you

Dilate the failing hindsight beneath this siren sky
Surrender the newborn's confessions and dialectic cries
That we'll know, this we'll know

Learn to tolerate the things you cannot change
Be immersed and willing to re-arrange
Put the better part of you on display
I want to talk about the exercising of the will
And witness all the joy our battles seem to kill
All that promise unfulfilled

"Instead of walking around all negatively, allowing that to affect your entire outlook on life, why not choose to live thankfully?"

Give me a sign, colour my world
This physical theatre hurts

Give me a sign, colour my world
This physical theatre hurts
Give me fire, light up my world
This physical theatre burns for you
 
 
I Wish I Could
This burning had lost control
And Gideon robbed my soul and so
Here is the human joke
I failed I failed I failed you
Here in this troubled mind
Where fortunes may turn the tide and so
By clichés I'm paralyzed
I failed I failed I failed I failed I failed you I failed you

I wish I could
I'd be the guardian of morality I should
But now my heart must face reality
And visited by inspiration
Visited by indignation again

Battling by the sword
A fear of the spoken word and so
Best grab your crown and turn
I failed I failed I failed you
So loathed to speak my name
And grow wretched by the day and so
It's better to die than to be enslaved
I failed I failed I failed I failed I failed you I failed you

I wish I could
I'd be the guardian of morality I should
But now my heart must face reality
And visited by inspiration
Visited by indignation again
I wish I could
I would eliminate this sense of longing
Do I dare not drown in what I am becoming
Promises have been rejected
My beliefs have been fragmented again
