Monument
There's a blind desire there's a drive
There's a need to leave some lasting feat
Something to hold, something to keep
A monument to complete

There's a written page there's a book
There's a search for something to say
Something to share, something to speak
A monument to convey

Is it fiction, is it confession
Is it passion or just a profession
Is it performance, is it expression
Is it passion or just an obsession

There's a photograph there's a frame
There's a time, a moment to confine
Something to save, something to see
A monument to enshrine

Is it performance, is it expression
Is it passion or just a profession
Is it fiction, is it confession
Is it passion or just an obsession

There's an empty room there's a blank page
There's a picture left incomplete
Something is lost, something remains
A monument to defeat

Is it fiction, is it confession
Is it passion or just a profession
Is it performance, is it expression
Is it passion or just an obsession
 
 
The Apparition
When the stars are right and you're alone
Take a journey, lock the world tight
Out of your mind.
The hall beckons your presence, the doors
Open wide you're to decide to turn back.
Deep the bowels of this black abyss.
Compelled I just can't resist it, take me

Take me away take me away
I wanna know what's deep within
Take me away

Drawing near someone passes through me,
A silent entity never looking back I won't dare
Evil eyes staring through he walls of stone
As I feared I travel not alone.
Laughter's echoes with the blatant wind
I have passed the threshold deep within me

A voice of thunder said turn back
Tabernacle is forbidden
No mortal dares to enter here
I want to know

Flame is burning center of a fountain yearning, waters
Spring eternal, spiritual water physical fire
Above center is sky, cold neverness
Just vastness filled with stars upon stars
In the four corners of life are the golden mirrors
Reflecting what you are and what you are to be

In the first is a young boy white dove in
His hand, in the second is a warrior in armor
In the third is the old man gold watch
In his hand fourth and last
No reflection at all
No reflection at all
No reflection at all

Waters rise toward physical fire, voice says
Tabernacle is forbidden never looking back I don't dare
If the water touches the flame
Forever in darkness yes I'll remain.
White dove flies from the young boys hand
Through the mirror of the old man, only way out
 
 
Through Different Eyes
We're walking within a shadow
Where echoes of different times resound
Looking for memories to relive
In yesterdays that can't be found.

Through different eyes
We keep looking for what we lack.
Changing minds
Take us away, and you can't go back.

And staring into ageless eyes
That shared secrets too dark for light
We're searching for old bonds in places
That lie forever out of sight

Through different eyes
We keep looking for what we lack.
Changing minds
Take us away, and you can't go back
To different times
Or ageless eyes, free from sorrow.
Changing hearts
Will hide the past from tomorrow.

Through different eyes we try to find
People and places we've left behind.
 
 
Point of View
Looking out on a familiar scene
There's no agreement in what we see
Your perception lacks clarify
And my perspective is blinding me

Side by side
Divided they stand

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Caught up in our convictions we forget
How our senses distort things we see
We can't accept our differences
But we can always disagree

Side by side
Divided they stand

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Where I stand is not so far from YOU
A different opinion is just another point of view

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side
 
 
Prelude to Ruin
Look to sunrise man tell me what you see
The eagle has flown underground abandoned
You abounded me
Fifty two falling stars are burning up the sky
Blazing torch falls to the ocean bottom where
Black predictions lie
Have you faith in scripture visions of kings
Reaper of reality your destiny the sisters sing
Vultures scavenge the subconscious of your mind
Their ally is time for you to fall and yield
Your mind to the cynic

They should be held so high and not looked down upon
They are the root of the country.
The roots so firm and tranquil, when will the spirits be welcomed,
Listen the music is heard again.
When there are lofty high roof tops carved walls and yielding crops
When the palace is wild for lusting.
When the forest if wild for hunting.
Existence of anyone thing has never been but the prelude to ruin

Wars and temper tantrums are the make-shifts of ignorance
Regrets illuminate to late. Depth beyond sin is fathomed
Wandering through the devils field sowing his seed

Guardian angel guide us through the night we compel
His long constant fight. The Moerea they call your destiny the sisters all of three.
Clotho she spun the web to live the thread so tentative.
Lachesis she measured out the years.
Atropos cuts the thread with her shears.

Time Time Time an imaginary line mine not yours nor yours mine
They lead the blind back to mothers womb tomb of the unborn child
Coming events cast their shadows before wintery wind the eye of the storm witness the past the future
Holds more prelude to ruin
 
 
Quietus
From sleeping visions
Daily were torn
In waking hours
Hopes our forlorn.
Is all we do and all we dream
Doomed to drown in a hopeless stream?

Wishing life were made of lasting visions
In eternal sleep
And if that rest were filled with sorrow
Still we'd sleep.

In the madness of a silent eternity
We'd find solace in
False visions that protect us
From reality.

Enter ivory gates through midnight skies
Daylight dreamers in private parades
Perform before perpetual dawn
As dusk engulfs the gate of horn.

Ivory towers appear beyond the gate
Invisible fortresses of escape
Traversed by ramparts made of hopes and fears
Impervious to reality.
 
 
Eye to Eye
I saw YOU once again last night
Through a sea of sullen faces
Admiring eyes following
The path that the spotlight traces

Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
Eye to eye

What was it YOU saw last night
When YOU gave yourself to me
Was it the thread of a common bond
Or the touch of cold reality

Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
We can move each other to tears
But we can't see
Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
Each of us alone in silence
When we meet
Eye to eye

All we can really share
Is the coldness we feel
And the silent memory
Of the moment we met

Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
We can move each other to tears
But we can't see
Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
Each of us alone in silence
When we meet
Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
We can move each other to tears
But we can't see
Eye to eye
 
 
Guardian
These walls are stained engraved with pain
You will find them under shadows casting shame
Some it's all they'll ever know,
Angels of the fortunate sons come and go...
You may not
Entities pass in the night Guardians and the
Reaper fight the will to live shall win
Mares of hope ride through their dreams blinding light awakens sleeping dawn it seems
It was all a dream endless dream

I will wish upon a star I believe in you
And if my will has strayed afar I remembered you
Will you remember me
I the one you sentenced Pennance unabsolved
Answer me save my will have you forgotten me

Pace the hallway blindman for a million miles of stars
His mind has seen. think you may he lives in darkness
We're the dark he's seen the light of dream
Karen's been asleep forever I know she hears me
She has so much to say, Machine shoots sparks through face
Unto my hand, unto my heart

I'm a fire without a flame helpless child without a name
With broken wings catch me I'm falling
I'm a question with no answer
Who are you that takes my life away from me
Unveil the boundaries of the black

I had a dream I was you strong as the fire
In your veins then when I called out your
Name I would remain and witness the pain
I am beyond silent black I will be back
As your guardian

Angels in white you have sacrificed witness and bury the pain
Walk hand and hand with the fear stricken child
Strengthen the weak and the lame pillar of penance and lore
Perpetual journey into the realm the sovereign servitor
 
 
At Fates Fingers
 
 
Silent Cries
Born to an air of apathy
Indifference shapes a fragile mind.
Questions formed at an early age
Beg answers unasked

Silent cries

Behind curious eyes resides a child who cannot speak.

Silent cries

Years find a mind alone whose
Questions flow too deep for words.
Covered in a shroud of silence
Watching the world go by

Silent cries

Behind outcast eyes, hides a child who cannot speak.

Silent cries

Time blindly races on
Toward the autumn years
Seasons unheeded pass
While we all drown in tears.

Questions unanswered remain alone
They mourn a fragile mind

Silent cries

Behind lifeless eyes, lies a child who cannot speak.

Silent cries
Silent cries
 
 
We Only Say Goodbye
Today was the end of a dream
As I watched your shadow disappear
Another moment for the memory
As we lose another year

Thought I heard You call my name
But YOU only said goodbye

Always somewhere we only say goodbye
Going nowhere
We only say goodbye
There's never time to say
All the things we need to say
When it's too late
We can only say goodbye

Tonight I felt your presence again
As we shared the sorrow we've always known
But I heard the distance in your voice
And I knew I was alone

Tried to tell YOU my deepest thoughts
But I only said goodbye

Always somewhere we only say goodbye
Going nowhere
We only say goodbye
There's never time to say
All the things we need to say
When it's too late
We can only say goodbye

Across the miles
Both of us reaching we try
But it's so hard to touch
When we only say goodbye

Always somewhere
We only say goodbye
Going nowhere
We only say goodbye
There's never time to say
All the things we need to say
When it's too late
We can only say goodbye

Always somewhere
We only say goodbye
Going nowhere
We only say goodbye
There's never time to say
All the things we need to say...
 
 
Damnation
Thousands of years,
Before the dawn of history. Ancient races tears,
Are flowing like a river to the sea.
Where sacred river ran,
White deer had roamed the land,
Brilliant twilight in our dreams.

Primitive child,
Your unforgotten tribe calls to you.
Descendants we are one,
The tangled maze is broken once again.
A myth without a meaning,
You shade the light from the seed.
The earth and virgin soil watch it bleed.
The earth and virgin soil.

Red, white, black, in city masses,
Corporate buildings spread like rashes,
Stacked upon each other forty high.
Stabbed each other in the back,
You money-hungry maniacs,
Dig up the earth and spit it in your eye.

To intrude this sacred land,
Where the mortals have been banned,
Where your own forefathers lie in rest.
To disturb this mountain side,
Where in battle we did ride,
And our warriors where they lie,
The earth digest.

Hear our cry from down below,
Let our restive spirits go.
You've trapped us in your world of sin,
Let the plague begin, Damnation.
Your cities disappear,
To earth's interior, don't you know
You've got to let your spirits go, let'em go.
You've got to let those spirits go.
Let'em go!
You've got to let your spirit go.
 
 
Circles
 
 
The Eleventh Hour
I know it's getting late
But I feel I need to explain
All the laughter and the lies
Can't stay the fear or hide the pain

Somewhere along the way
We exchanged our dreams for selfish pride
There was a common goal
But somehow that vision has died

Is it so hard to understand
The facts that YOU ignore
We've grown so tired of trying
Wasting our time criticizing
And nothing's easy anymore
Nothing's easy anymore

Is it too late to understand
The writing that's on the walls
While we watch time slip through our hands
We're deaf to our own demands
When the eleventh hour calls
The eleventh hour calls

And nothing's easy anymore
When the eleventh hour calls
The eleventh hour calls

I know it's getting late
But I feel I need to explain
