Track Name: The Sooner You Know
It was the dead of night,
and I knew it wasn’t over yet.
I was so confused by the light, and the life around me
and I risked it all

It’s always ten steps forward, and a hundred back
and the sooner you know, then the less you lack,
and if you stand to threaten, it will attack
so the sooner you know, then the less you lack

Too many summers have passed us by,
we’ll never be, though we both know why.
Still, I know what I’ll always be in your eye
and that should be good enough,
that should be good enough.

It’s always ten steps forward, ten steps forward.

ten steps forward, and a hundred back
and the sooner you know, then the less you lack,
and if you stand to threaten, it will attack
so the sooner you know, then the less you lack
Track Name: Madame's Secret Pain
see the petals dancing in the air
and tread just on the water’s surface there
somehow sitting here lets me forget
my fear of what’s on the other side.

I can’t erase what has been done,
but I can learn now, not just run.

I’ve let more tears escape than I care to admit
and in most places I don’t seem to fit
the people’s eyes are so dimly lit
and I don’t envy them one bit.

I can’t erase what has been done,
but I can learn now, not just run.
I can’t erase what has been done,
but I can learn now, not just run.

not just run…
Just run!
Track Name: Run and Jump
Blind faith has left me in the dark,
and I’d give anything to know where to start
take what’s left of a shattered heart
before I lose it all…

Should’ve let you swim, Should’ve let you swim, Should’ve let you swim,
Should’ve left you to drown, should’ve taken your crown when I had the chance

Take a run and then a jump
I can’t stand to feel this lump in my throat
Take a run and then a jump
take all that you want and spear my side

and who the fuck do you think you are?
trying to steal what’s mine
and I tried so hard just to satisfy, is it worth another try?

Should’ve let you swim, Should’ve let you swim, Should’ve let you swim

take what’s left of a shattered heart

What sort of name is that, anyway?
Track Name: Party's Over
Where are you now?
So far from the track that you don’t know,
and the old mask hangs labelled on my wall
a souvenir from another time
and I still find that clouded mind of yours confusing.

When the shadow passes on,
and your self comes shining through,
when you’ve nothing else to do, you’ll remember me.
You’ll remember me.

You’re selfish with your visions
and it’s difficult not to listen.
You claim to know where all of us go and where we’ve come from
and you say you see the vile temptress in me, you’ve no idea.
You’ve no idea

and your self comes shining through.
when you’ve nothing else to do, you’ll remember me.
You’ll remember me.

When the party’s over,
and cold daylight comes firing though,
and when you’ve nothing else to do, you’ll remember me.

You’ll remember me
When cold daylight comes firing through.
Track Name: Gartan Mother's Lullaby
Sleep, O babe, for the red bee hums the silent twilight's fall
Eeval from the grey rock comes to wrap the world in thrall

A lyan van o, my child, my joy, my love and heart's desire
The crickets sing you lullaby beside the dying fire
Dusk is drawn and the Green Man's thorn is wreathed in rings of fog
Sheevra sails his boat 'til morn upon the starry bog
A lyan van o, the paly moon hath brimm'd her cusp in dew
And weeps to hear the sad, sleep tune I sing, o’ love, to you

Sleep, O babe, for the red bee hums the silent twilight's fall
Track Name: This Kind of Sin
She is dry and unforgiving, she doesn’t want to let you in
It doesn’t matter what I say to you,
you could never learn this kind of sin

Opportunists don’t waste time, why should I let you waste mine?
Another chance, another line

She is smooth and covered
-in lace, she wears a mask to hide her face.
It doesn’t matter what you win,
you’ll never get beneath her skin.

Another chance, another line
Opportunists don’t waste time, why should I let you waste mine?

Another chance, another line
Track Name: Ready To Unfold
At this time my heart is clouded with so many dreams.
And it's all so clear now, it seems...
and the night wanes upon every thought - filling every moment.
and I don't want to waste a drop.

Now is the time if you want me I'm ready to Unfold
Now is the time if you need me I'm....

Deafening whispers break down all the obstacles.
And it's now that I'm ready to unfold

such a sweet silence, filling every moment
such a sweet silence.
Track Name: Won't Be Long
Turn a blind eye, take a deep breath and wait.
Not everything's meant with malice and hate.
It's getting late now, much too late for that now
-so turn a blind eye, turn a blind eye.

It's because you speak to me in tongues
that I'm too weak to carry on.
I realise it won't be long,
but I tried.
you speak to me in tongues
and I'm too weak to carry on.
I realise it won't be long,
but I tried.

Innocence gone now, only naivety remains.
you think I didn't notice the stain?
it's funny how time spent reminds me of how you used to be
-you never opened your eyes, you never opened your eyes.

you never opened your eyes, or your mind.
you never opened your eyes.

-and you speak to me in tongues,
and I'm too weak to carry on.
I realise it won't be long,
but I tried.
