1. Phenomenon

safe from all the hurting safe from all the lies
locked myself away now blindfold on my eyes
lost in your predictions fiction from the stars
bound to be your destiny you know who you are

someone stopped the starlight loosened up the ties
now the door is open open like my eyes

so if the skyís about to fall iíll still be up there flying
itís just the fear of whatís in store that ever stops you trying
and if the storm throws you around it only makes you stronger
but when the stars come crashing down itís a phenomenon

scared of all your visions scared of all you hear
thought youíd bring security but all you brought was fear
someone stopped the starlight brought me back to life
set me free from your deceit threw away the lies

so if the skyís about to fall iíll still be up there flying
itís just the fear of whatís in store that ever stops you trying
and if the storm throws you around it only makes you stronger
but when the stars come crashing down itís a phenomenon

I donít want many things just a chance to spread my wings
donít know what the future brings but I want to be there

someone stopped the starlight loosened up the ties
now the door is open open like my eyes

so if the skyís about to fall iíll still be up there flying
itís just the fear of whatís in store that ever stops you trying
and if the storm throws you around it only makes you stronger
but when the stars come crashing down itís a phenomenon




2. Oceanbound

every time i try to climb a mountain
all i find are steeper ones ahead
every time i walk along the highway
all you do is push me to the edge
i'm not afraid

let the sky become an ocean pull me in above my head
won't deny my one devotion lose or win cos i'm not scared

the higher up you build your walls around me
the higher i discover how to fly
i'm not afraid

let the sky become an ocean pull me in above my head
won't deny my one devotion lose or win cos i'm not scared

i know the truth of my conscience and i know the lies of my sign
i know how it feels to be wanting and i know of the fullness of time
i feel a storm across my face as night is falling and i can't see to carry on
i know the emptiness of space can hear me calling but i don't know what lies beyond
i dream of a world without shadows and i dream of a day without pain
i long for perpetual motion and i dream of living again

every time i try to climb the mountain
nothing in the world can pull me down
i'm not afraid

let the sky become an ocean pull me in above my head
won't deny my one devotion lose or win cos i'm not scared




3. Choices

each new life killing time they must wait canít escape
clinging on each sad song swells the throng millions strong
unaware if they care am i real if i feel?

iím looking past the edge of you and all i see is black
what you steal is energy and you wonít give it back
intimidate interrogate poor you remain aloof
the drama of your misery played out since your youth

waiting for the first insight

how can i explain my kingdom remains?
if i die again the choices

iím looking for coincidence before it gets too late
iíve been in this rut for so long iím starting to stagnate
i need to find a way out soon i really have to try
is it possible to be alive not noticing youíve died?

waiting for the first insight

how can i explain? my kingdom remains
if i die again the choices

youíre ever so clever and if youíre not clever
youíll never get into heaven again

searching for the tenth insight

how can i explain my kingdom remains?
if i die again the choices




4. Angels

you used to call me different like there was something wrong
a vanishing of reason a soon forgotten song
you used to call me special when i was very small
but now i'm old i should have known
you don't call me any more
and every day you turn away from everything you know
and every night you fade your light soon you won't know where to go

angels calling at my door
i don't know what scares me more
going where they call me to
or staying on this world with you

you used to call me baby but now i'm fully grown
now you're old your eyes are cold and you are so alone
you don't believe your visions you don't believe your son
you don't believe in anything but what your hands have done
and every day you turn away from everything you've heard
and every night you close your eyes and hide your face from every word

angels calling at my door
i don't know what scares me more
going where they call me to
or staying on this world with you

don't you here my gentle voice i'm calling your name
only just a whisper but you know what i'm saying
you are worth so much to me much more than you know
all you've got to do is choose the way that you go

and when you're lost in me i will be found in you
and when i'm found in you the truth will set you free

don't you be so terrified i'll do you no wrong
i don't want to crucify but help you along
you've been losing out on so much more than you know
you've been choosing dangerous paths instead of my road

and when you're lost in me i will be found in you
and when i'm found in you the truth will set you free

angels calling at my door
i don't know what scares me more
going where they call me to
or staying on this world with you




5. Falling Away

thereís a fire by the wayside and it burns so bright
as the smoke rolls over us we think that weíre bathing in light
as we tend to our gardens the world is growing wild
but we live in our tiny heads and canít see past our own tiny minds
as we turn away from heavenís bright sun to earthís dark star

weíre powerless weíre paranoid weíll never know what we destroyed
weíre arrogant so ignorant weíre falling falling away

so we stop by the wayside and we think weíre smart
we vote for the pretty ones and curse when the world falls apart
and we swear weíll do better but the skyís about to fall
so the smoke rolls over us and we are doing nothing at all
we turned away from heavenís bright sun so here we are

weíre powerless weíre paranoid weíll never know what we destroyed
weíre arrogant so ignorant weíre falling falling away

weíre breaking weíre stalling weíre drifting weíre falling
weíre headstrong for so long weíre always falling away




6. Virtual Isolation

we long for a place of constant perfection
where action and outcome have exclusive protection
like in a dream of the waking mind
life with a freedom that is so hard to find
i cannot dream no more, my mind is a blank

virtuality, electrons running round my brain
virtuality, cybersex without the pain
virtuality, life can never be the same
virtuality, rock and roll without the fame

i am wired into the electronic brain
my mind is part of a gigantic mainframe
melding my consciousness with input so profound
relying on program for every sight and sound
i cannot dream no more, my mind is a blank

virtuality, electrons running round my brain
virtuality, cybersex without the pain
virtuality, life can never be the same
virtuality, rock and roll

cd rom drive me far away
hard discoveries in hyperspace
don't delete me i am no sprite
girlfriend's fat agnes chip burning bright
i have immersed myself in the isolation tank

virtuality, electrons running round my brain
virtuality, cybersex without the pain
virtuality, life can never be the same
virtuality, rock and roll




7. Innocent

picture time as before where you slept through it all
they believe you were there why deny what i said?
vicious lies being heard you stand there how absurd
and with hate in your mind convict me

take my life away or give back the answer you hold
and stand unashamed of what you have done
don't just walk away unlock the chains from your heart
prove my innocence cause i did no wrong

empty words lies from the start? we stood strong never apart
had it all in our hands we had it all, yes you and me
now the tables have turned all i gave you return
makes it hard to believe what you've done to me

don't call me your friend, won't you understand I don't need

take my life away or give back the answer you hold
and stand unashamed of what you have done
don't just walk away unlock the chains from your heart
prove my innocence cause i did no wrong




8. Long Way Home

i thought that you were driving or never thought to ask
all the while you left me in control
somehow i'm surviving it doesn't seem so hard
cos i'm not on this journey all alone

and i know the way i'm feeling but i just can't find the words

i go my own way down i fall again i see the sunrise only taste the rain
what you remind me i already know unless i follow every road with you
i take the long way home

you weren't supposed to find me i tried so hard to hide
i never thought you'd want to track me down
i thought that you disowned me every time i strayed
i guess i had it all the wrong way round

and i know the way i'm going but i just can't find the road

i go my own way down i fall again i see the sunrise only taste the rain
what you remind me i already know unless i follow every road with you
i take the long way home

and i know that i believe you but i just can't keep the faith

i go my own way down i fall again i see the sunrise only taste the rain
what you remind me i already know unless i follow every road with you
i take the long way home




9. Fragmentation

we are fragmented clinging on to a concept known as how
drifting through dimensions in a place which we call now
simply unaware of what goes on above beyond and before
behind us fly the ragged fragments of what should have been much more
been much more so unsure opening doors

separate entities in ebb and flow fragmentation
diverse quantities behind us show fragmentation

we thought that we would live forever now weíre mortals like the rest
we were lion hearted fighters who were never put to the test
canít foresee the end but itís round the bend and itís putting us to flight
i would go with you if you asked me to and youíre frightened that i might
i just might souls in flight just not right

separate entities in ebb and flow fragmentation
diverse quantities behind us show fragmentation

half of a fantasy but i never got
half of the fanta see? but i never got
half of the fans to see but i never got
half of the van to sing but i never got
no i never ever never got
half of the fantasy but i never got
half of the band to see but i never got
half of the fans to sing but i never got
half of the royalties no i never got

its time to reconvene the wolf pack and gather these disparate parts
and to exorcise the maniac and separate these scars
let my blood flow fast and neutralise the yearning in my heart
let my spirit fill with energy like its waiting for the start
for the start a broken heart torn apart

separate entities in ebb and flow fragmentation
diverse quantities behind us show fragmentation
