Track Name: Disarray
Disarray

The lights are distant by the shores of time
Lands drift far but the new world is mine
As I call you
I try to reach out
Your eyes stare off
Do you hear me right now?

What has happened? How can this be?
You're sailing in circles, lost out at sea
I'm shining my light
Like stars in the sky
Struggling to find
The reasons why....We try
Track Name: Faceless
Faceless

A long journey throughout these years
Hard to swallow reminiscent tears
Drifting clouds held in memory
Lost in thoughts I had to set free

Abandoned by the hands of time
Images fade from the mind
In this place no one cares
A faceless shadow left in despair

Scars that heal still mark my skin
The frail past in closing in
Dreaming instead, I forget
Moving forward with no regrets

Child of mine drifts away
They are choosing not to see
Can’t believe what you think
Can’t believe who we'll be
Track Name: Wither
Wither

Laying here I feel a sense taking over me
Watching the world I know, I’m not too blind to see
Send me out to the unknown, send me far away
Whisper what you want of me, inject your words today
Here I lay.....
Here I pray...
Can you not hear me?
Can you not feel me?
Time it seems to wither away

Laying here I take my time, touching what will be
Slowing down the moments of frozen imagery,
Echoes stir of memories, of those yesterdays
No response to your touch, still my body lays
Here I lay...
Here I pray...
Can you not hear me?
Can you not feel me?
Time seems to wither away

I hear your voice
I feel you close to me
I sense your tears
If you could only see
I may awake
From this place
This place
Track Name: Star Bound
Starbound

Drifting through the cosmos
Learning from all that I know
Meanings between the letters
Leaving its time to go
Faceless shadows surround the mind
They have been here too
Hollow the inside hope to find
Journey to the center of you

The man ahead has the ticket
Step inside the greatest show
We will watch the faceless pass
While they dream of letting go
No escape from redemption
Take the message as you leave
Going towards the destination
How far you get depends on what you believe

Driving on to the new world
Driving on to the new world
Driving on to the new world
Driving on to the new world
Track Name: Numb
Numb

Dreaming.....
Feel like I'm, seeing....
Can I believe in....
Who I am?

Speaking....
Thought I heard you, giving....
All you are away to meeting
What will be?

In the summer mornings
The sun rises high
The Rays of life
Wake in me
Drifting with the wind
The songs will carry in
We try not to begin
That we are coming down

If I breathe from the past
I can see into the future
Come run with me into the night

We find everything is gonna be alright
We find everything is gonna be alright
We find everything is gonna be alright
We find everything is gonna be alright
We find everything is gonna be alright

Track Name: Delusion
Delusion

I remember when I almost died
The pain was so intense
When the sunlight faded into pitch black
I was numb, I didn't want to come back

I found myself walking in a cold dark empty tunnel,
Focused on a flicker of light up ahead
When I reached the light a shadow appeared
Looking down at me it whispered
"Not now" and grasped my hand

This voice, was familiar- yet very, very strange
But I could still remember all of my pain
So I moved again towards that light
The voice grew angry now "It's not your time!"

I felt like begging, but nothing came out
Then in an instant my head began to spin
I was suddenly walking quickly backwards to
where I started from
I tried to resist it with all my strength,
But I wasn't going to win against fate

And as my darkness started to fade back into
to the light
The shadow bent over me, and whispered in my
ear one last time..
It said:
"In time, we will be together, but your time is
not now my dear, not now, not tonight..."

I can see where I am heading
I can feel time is ending
I can be the distance crossing
I can dream of new beginnings

Track Name: T.M.B.A. 2010
T.M.B.A. (2010)

Flying down the highway
I have not seen a thing
All the headlights coming towards me
Are they seeing me? Are they feeling me?

I stop the trip to get out
I walk to the willow tree
I lay down in perfect
Serenity and the stars stare back at me

I see the leaves surround me
Takes my breath away
I feel the tears fall on me
Takes my breath away
I feel stars above me
Takes my breath away
I see the world below me
Takes my breath away

Feel the energy within
You feel it deep inside
Taste the mist upon your skin
I see it in your eyes
Don’t look back (Don’t look back)
As the seasons go around
Absorb all of me into you
As I lay here on the ground
It takes my breath away
Takes my breath away

I see the road ahead
Now I'm rolling home
Touch the skin of the endless
Love.....
Track Name: Altered State
Altered State

The lights are distant
By the shores of time
Lands drift far but
The new world is mine
As I call you
I try to reach out
Your eyes go home
You can hear me, you are not alone
We find everything is gonna be alright
We find everything is gonna be alright
We find everything is gonna be alright
Track Name: Reflections
Reflections

I am feeling 17
If you know what I mean
Time’s flying by
I’m wondering why
Everything is relative
As I lay on the grass
Watching the clouds come to pass
I was talking with you
About all that I knew
It was all I had to give

I once had a dream
You were laying by me
The look in your eyes
Felt so alive
Woke up inside out there
Can you think about me?
Do you see what I see?
Just give me a sign
Something that shines
Like the sun distant but near
