about

Nothing special at all wakes from his slumber
To the rustle of crows around his cadaverous nest
Picking at his eyes

Fenced upon the rotted rail of nevermore
Hung upside down across from the sun
A crack appears in the world

Turning over on itself in minuet abstraction
Gleaming through the ill conceived construct
That is the mortar of sorrow

Hands tied to the wheel of fortune
By thunderbolt clasp
The absence of language
Cast like runes before the oracle

Liturgy before the source
Observance of sacrament and sacrifice
Keys bequeathed to mercurial fawns

The crack expands like the third eye of the world
And mist rolls out glimmering in the gloaming light
The wall half built is crumbling rock returning to her
Beyond the graveyard of dreams
Held safe by moonlight and vines

Track Name: Goldiliyens
In the dark there is a light
though it shines I was blind
Yes, I was far too blind to see.

Keys and maps that once were hidden
Now reveal themselves
In the movement of the salted-sulfur spire.

Goldili----
Draw themselves across the setting
Sun drawn on the weavers web
Strength have I to resurrect my destiny
Goldili----

Through the window wind it blew
The curtain from the rod
Candles flicker shadows on the wall

As she cut the deck of cards
I cut my ties to the world
Now I'm falling from the tree.

Goldili----
Draw themselves across the setting
Sun drawn on the weavers web
Strength have I to resurrect my destiny
Goldili----

I'm not a fortune teller
I put one foot before the other
I'm not a fortune teller
I pick my cues up from the weather
Time is a foolish alibi to hide behind
It always come back to you

Goldili----
Draw themselves across the setting
Sun drawn on the weavers web
Strength have I to resurrect my destiny
Goldili----
Track Name: Jupiter's Fall
I got up today was feeling down
My best friend is going to leave town
Guess I'll go and take a walk around
Watch the leaves all falling to the ground

The crows they called my name
No one's to blame for how the seasons change
And rearrange; it's elemental
Don't be afraid, you lose you save
It's not detrimental

Got into it with my shadow side
Left him dead down by the river side
So surprised to find him still alive
Choking the world off from my inner light

And when he called my name
The shame we shared became the word you said
How everything that we all go through
All will come together make a more beautiful view

Got myself stuck here in the muck and the mire
Feels like forever and I'm so fucking tired
Wanna come home baby and lay by your side
Feel your heart beating next to mine

When I called your name
The angels sang a soft lit lullaby
Cause in your eyes the stars how they shine
If I could make it through tonight it'll be all right
All right

Breaking it down and letting it go
Track Name: A Long Time
I was headed toward the light
Doctors came and saved my life
But wait on just a minute here
I think they stole my halo
And heaven's not my home right now

Curse this body that I'm bound
Thankful no one was around
To hear me smash my head into the wall
Until I pass out and now
Sometimes it's hard to think

Going out I go prepared
Sneak away tuck back my hair
Just to put some powder up my nose
And turn my brain off
Cause heaven's not my home right now

Somewhere there were lines drawn
Invisible divisionary
At least for me my life was cordoned off
An isolated reverie

Icarus abandoned me
Left me to my misery
Passed out in a stranger's hallway
Threw up on my suit coat
My brother come and carried me home

Nothing ever seems to change
Blacking out on Valentine's Day
Blood all on my face when I came to
Inside the jail cell
And heaven's not my home right now

Somewhere there were lines crossed
Between this world and the other
And in my dreams they showed me visions
Of things that may or may not be

Tear my eyes out; Tear my eyes out
For a long time we carried it
It took a long time to bury it

Life it is a mystery
I do not mean it personally
Please just get away from me
I'm headed for a breakdown
and I don't want to be alone
Cause heaven's not my home right now
Track Name: In The Morning
I love you like a flower that loves to bloom
I love you like a clouded sky turning blue

I'm walkin' through the shadow to meet you in the morning

I love you and there's nothing I wouldn't do
Do for you, whatever you want me to

I'm workin' through my shadow to meet you in the morning

I love you and I know that you love me too
I love you like a miracle coming true

I'm workin' through the shadow to meet you in the morning
