Track Name: The Lights
sun and satan and sand
broke and buried this land
nothin but scuds and sky
enemy fire goin by
maybe I will just lie here

all for country or king
it's only a cut, just a sting
but I can not feel a thing
all that I hear is this ringing
air raid sirens or singing?

I see lights
I see lights
nothin but light

waitin for sergeant july
promised to save my sweet hide
brothers and lovers and friends
all good things to an end
how long will I pretend you're near?

I see lights
I see lights
nothin but light
I see light
nothin but light
Track Name: Between the Lines
MOONLIGHT
and we run
from life, from someone
I've never had so much fun
is it love or a hit and run?

oh, but how your eyes shine
feel your arm grazing mine
hands and fingers intertwine
for the moment
you are mine

between the lines
you're mine
between the lines

DAYLIGHT
and we hide
from night and our pride
I know I am not your bride
not on the out or the inside

NOON HIGH
and we know
you can't sew seeds in snow
it's time I leave, time I go
what can I say that you don't know

oh, but how your eyes shine
feel you arm grazing mine
hands and fingers cross a line
for the moment
you are mine
Track Name: Four Horses
four horses ride
some of us must die

some by sword
some by famine
some by wild beast's abandon
some by snake
some by slaughter
oh, my sons
oh, my daughters

boiling tide
wash this pride

some by sword
some by famine
some by wild beast's abandon
some by snake
some by slaughter
oh, my sons
oh, my daughters

gone
all gone

and day to night
end our light
Track Name: Sisyphus' Fist
sisyphus had all of this
a heart, a head, a stone
a kiss, a cry, a last goodbye
a hunger for his thorn
it's been a long time
who knows how long?

it goes so
s l o w

murder, blunder,
blood and thunder
punishment and reward
making sense of consequence
only leaves him bored
it's been a long time
can he take much more?

what if this is all there is?
deep, dependable strife?
what if this is happiness?
is it less of a life?

always steep
never quite complete
a journey without end
there's only time
and chafe and grime
it rolls back down again
it's been a long time
do I see him grin?
Track Name: I am a lion, a lightning bolt
i am a lion, a lightning bolt
i am alive
i am an arrow, a narrowing line
i am your straightening spine

and i can see you
the fight in your eyes
and i can feel you
compromise

i am clearing,
a nearing shrine
the answer just in time
i am a preacher
a reaching vine
growing toward your shine

and i can see you
the fight in your eyes
and i can feel you
compromise

i am what you've always known
breath in blood
and the bite in bone
knowing that you have
all you need
you are complete
Track Name: Rage
rage in ripples
shaking my skin
i can feel the beast within

once your alice
more than a friend
i can feel the beast within

i can feel the change
beautiful and strange
my heart, a beating glove
fist of hate and love

bloating fury
stretching me shear
beware, i can smell your blood from here

i can feel the change
beautiful and strange
my heart, a beating glove
fist of hate of love
and all i regret
those things i haven't done yet
Track Name: Words Left Unspoken
lost in shadow
just out of reach
i felt it growing
a ripening peach
in the night
like a window was opened
a shaft of light
on words left unspoken

where? oh where?
what do we go from here?
the sun is gone
the animals disappeared
where? where do we go?
the beast has come and we have moved too slow

i lay in hiding
on hand and knee
i cry for the river
and the river for me
both eyes closed
hands raised like a steeple
i pray in vain
a prayer for my people

where? oh where?
what do we go from here?
the sun is gone
the animals disappeared
where? where do we go?
the beast has come and we have moved too slow
