7. Disappear
8. Safe To Fly
9. One Degree Down







1. Slipstream

are you drifting, is there nowhere to go
life support is down and your systems low
are you cruising on your secondary cells
waiting for the bell (oh do you really think so)

flat line youíre illusory mind
dreams are for the bold and youíre not that kind
disappointment has a house on that road
best to stay at home (oh do you really think so)

youíre safe and warm inside
your chances pass you by
the question fills your mind
are you caught in a slipstream
are you lost in the fog
can you see through the windscreen
are you sure itís safe to follow somebodyís taillight
are you already lost
when you get to the daylight
when you recognise the world you walked across

are you listening with your head in the sand
drown the words you donít want to understand
Ďtil the song stops, is it safe to come out
nobodyís about (oh do you really think so)

too late now thereís nowhere to go,
life support is down and your systems low
and your fuel light said youíll never get home
now youíre all alone (oh do you really think so)

youíre scared to stay inside
your chances pass you by
the question fills your mind

penny for the dreams you thought youíd lost
penny for the dreams you thought youíd see
penny for the price you thought it cost
penny for the one you thought youíd be
pity for the times you kept it all
pity for the wealth you thought youíd get
pity for the day your empire falls
pity for the day your life got caught




2. This Is Your Life

five miles tall
and everything is small
everything is small
five miles down
you see your patch of ground
itís not so bad at all

breathe in, out
and donít stop breathing

cause this, this is your life
this is your world
and everything that youíve been trusted with
itís small in your eyes
but great is your worth
and you can do this right
this is your life

five miles high
donít want to leave the sky
everythingís so clear
five miles on
when clarity is gone
just make it reappear




3. Elusive

climb the wall and leave it all behind
climb the wall and leave it all behind

youíve got so much on your table
and I now that you are able
but youíre hiding in your cradle
trying to rock it all away

youíre sailing where the driftwood goes
youíre falling from the sky like stone

youíre the lifeline not the dead zone
the foundation, not the headstone
many things you need to let go
many things you need to start

and I know that your dependants
may be pleased with your attention
but I know itís worth a mention
that itís tearing them apart

and sometimes itís a hard road,

maybe itís elusive (so hard to find your way)
but you know just what the truth is (you feel it every day)
and maybe itís intrusive (wonít seem to go away)
but you know youíve got to do it (let go of yesterday)
until itís done

showed you wisdom showed you wonders
that you cannot pull asunder
and thereís no curse that youíre under
cause itís over, gone away
now you have all you need

all the stores are full, your wings are strong
now itís time to compete
you can run the race and carry on




4. Hollow

never found me a reason why
all I saw was a hollow sky
did I set my sights too high
to find a path before me
I dreamt of shooting stars
I travelled out so far
tried to signal where you are
but nothing could assure me

inside, outside, any side
still Iím looking for alibis
cast aside close my eyes now Iím here

and the words seem hollow now
but I donít want to let you down
cause the world just came around
and everything is brighter
I was so unsure
'til I found the door
and you let me in

when the flags have blown away
and the footprints started to fade
will I find my way again
or lose the path before me
I saw the leaves go brown
I saw them falling down
all my dreams lying on the ground
with nothing to assure me

fall came, hard rain, clean again
still Iím waiting and mesmerised
purified, close my eyes, now Iím here




5. Pilot In The Sky Of Dreams

in heavy consternation I move across the hall
I pictured this so many times
and wasnít scared at all
but every time I got this far I never felt so small
my mind was full of questions
of arguments and lies
but every word was melted down
when I looked in your eyes
and I donít need these memories
for now Iím mesmerized
and Iím staring down the barrel of my life

now Iím entranced, you possess my full attention
how my thought dance freely on the journey
you attended all along, to somewhere I belong
like a pilot in the sky in the sky of dreams

can you promise me the world
and everything I need
can you promise me the world
can you promise me a sky
thatís trouble free and clear
so itís safe for me to fly

but who can stop my plane (stop my plane)
from drifting out of range (far away)

will this sky be precious to defend
will my sights go dark before the end
will I see the landing lights again

can you offer me the speed
to travel like the wind
if I ever feel the need
can you guarantee the sun
wonít melt away my wings
way before my journeyís done

and who can stop my plane (stop my plane)
from drifting out of range? (far away)

drifting away (drifting away)
out of the grey and out of control
such a nice day (such a nice day) for drifting away

what became of the blue horizon
are you sure I was flying blind
never saw that the plane was diving
never thought I was out of time
and now Iím disenchanted
you endure my disaffection
all my systems running red
the radio is down and thereís trouble ahead

get me back down
I lost my way and I want to be grounded
get me back down
I lost my way coming out of the storm

did I promise you a sky
where rain would never fall
or did you listen to a lie
did you radio to base
I waited for your call
but you left without a trace

but I can stop your plane (stop your plane)
from drifting out of range! (far away)

still this sky is precious to defend
still your will last until the end
you will see the landing lights again




6. Fighting For Breath

I saw the sign a faded stoplight up ahead
I crossed the line cause I was caught in the middle
caught in the middle
long empty road on damaged tyres with shallow
tread
so far to go I might have lost it a little
lost it a little

donít you stop me now
Iím nowhere near my destination
donít you shut me down, cause I donít want to rest

like a maniac I sprinted way off track
then took the long way back
racing at full speed ahead
now Iím taciturn I felt the crash and burn
the point of no return
will I be fighting for breath forever

high empty walls the buzz of tube light never fades
my shadow falls and Iím now lost for a little
lost for a little
try to relax you may experience delays
I know the facts but now Iím caught in the middle
caught in the middle

donít you lock me out
Iím sure I know the combination
fragments drift about, but suddenly theyíre gone

burning up breaking down (donít want to be)
on the edge all the time (donít want to be)
flaring up freaking down (donít want to be)
half awake half alive, just want to be me

breaking up burning down (donít want to be)
off the edge out of tome (donít want to be)
falling down flaking out (donít want to be)
half asleep half alive, just want to be free

I close my eyes and turn out the lights
cause somebody closed this road
and I canít drive cause now thereís nowhere to go
I close my mind, and mine is the night
mine is the longest wait
and here Iíll stay Ďtil the stoplight eventually fades

donít you keep me down
Iím nowhere near my destination
donít you stop me now, cause I donít want to rest




7. Disappear

show me the door cause Iíve been here before
always my conscience was smothered
how can I mean to be part of your scene
you hit me before Iíve recovered

sometimes you only find your feet
when youíre walking away

so open up the door
and get me out of here
I wonít be back for more
this isnít my future
so watch me disappear

once we begin youíre just drawing me in
always my judgment is clouded
stupid ideas start exciting my fears
next thing I know Iím surrounded

but even though I know
itís hard to let you go
but harder to admit it
you did it, you did it again

but even though I cry
to leave it all behind
itís harder to forget it
you did it, you did it again

show me the door cause Iíve been here before
always I fall for your fable
how could I mean to be part of your scene
itís time to get out while Iím able




8. Safe To Fly

dragonfly in the pouring rain
cast a shadow on halcyon days
chasing rainbows running the storm
unaware that your wings would be torn

sometimes I think Iím going nowhere at all
stuck in the shelter with my back to the wall
then I remember how it felt to come down
so Iím taking my time and Iím not going out

until itís safe to fly
I would be waiting Ďtil the summer sky
but Iím standing by
until Iím cleared to go
I wonít be shaken by the undertow
Iím under your wing this time
and I know thereís a storm outside
so Iíll stay Ďtil I know itís safe
safe to fly

aeronaut in a heavy cloud
staying up with the radio down
chasing rainbows youíd rather forget
unaware of the trouble ahead

sometimes I think Iím learning nothing at all
once Iíve recovered I just stumble and fall
ítil Iíve discovered what the journeyís about
Iím preparing for flight, and Iíll weather it out

until itís safe to fly
I would be waiting Ďtil the summer sky
but Iím standing by
until Iím cleared to go
I wonít be shaken by the undertow
Iím biding my time




9. One Degree Down

no sense in admitting Iím weary from the wait
no sense in pretending that
Iím pressing on the gate
no power in a promise that I can find the cause
all it takes are a few mistakes
so how can I be sure

what if I fall, what happens next
what if my foundation was a thought out of
context
no power in a process that leaves me in the dark
so Iíll just go with what I know
itís written on my heart

but thought itís late in the day

I know Iíll find my way soon
show me a place in the sun
cause somewhere on the journey
is the strength to go on
so let the dark fade
show me a break in the cloud
cause every day Iím waiting
brings me one degree down

no shame in admitting I feel a little scared
no sense in pretending that
Iíll know before Iím there
no power in a promise with no authority
all it takes are a few mistakes before
Iím lost at sea

I feel this inclination
leading me to doubt my destination
I used up all my patience all the time
I waited at the station

I donít want to break the sky
Iím not going to come back down
I donít want to lose my mind
Iím too far gone to turn back now

I canít avoid the feeling maybe all the signs could be misleading
with all my senses reeling when I saw my dreams all hit the ceiling

no need for reflecting on why it took so long
no need for rejecting this road Iím walking on
no point reminiscing on things I canít repair
all it takes a few good breaks and suddenly
Iím there
