We had to see in the dark We were children of the night We had to be in the dark to be Children of the night My hair reached to the sky To try to reach your height -Chorus- You’re with the gods I’m with the rocks You read the cards I find the squats One more mystery, one more day They say leave me one more day One more mystery, one more day They say leave me one more day Holding out your hand to say, please Holding out your hand to say, give me please

Following the pulse and thrum to clubland once again Of neon words from poet past The beat that drove us on to the edge of wild dreams But nightlife breathes us in again Ch: Like a deadening high Or a cinder adrift Ends with fire Begins with a kiss Dance on the rooftops Ember underfoot Ends in ashes Began like this The city full of walls and doors, an empty place to find She climbs the hollow stairway Between the us and them just the blackness of below Till daybreak breathes us out again Chorus 2x

Come Find Me 03:40
Look down below The bodies glow Through eyes once young Who would ever know ~Chorus~ (that she) She dances in the moonlight A starry field alight Her honeyed voice sings out Come find me now I hear her call Her voice behind the wall Her heartbreak brings me closer Like the shadow falls ~Chorus~ Unbroken, time builds walls Uncertain, her footsteps fall A hidden word I’ll whisper to a bird Set my dreams on wing In the night she stirred ~Chorus~ ~Bridge~

**On a day of followed signs  and hallowed grounds **I did my shine Block out the sounds Of laughter Of screaming of all that We were running from **On a day not like today but as it was *I did my best to trust Block out the sounds Of sirens Explosions Of all that The world is coming to **By the way I'm having fun Lined out my veins *I did my best but it It's never good enough For hoping For praying For hiding What I have become

On the Wall 03:46
Raindrops on George You traced eternity on my soul  red square holds court  those lords and ladies all look dead Pale, pale faces Boots and laces  Following the tracers To you And your sparkly cigarette High on the wall Not afraid to fall Not afraid of anything Pale, pale faces boots and laces Following the tracers To you  And your sparkly cigarette Pale, pale faces  boots and laces  following the tracers  to you And your sparkly cigarette

Remember when the sun was a pregnant orb  nestled in her nest in the heart of the sky, Her tongue unfurled to drink moisture from the stone, drove the moon underground to hide from her thirst Ch: We lay side by side,  Painting stars in empty rooms. We name our constellations  After days we never knew. A map forms ‘round your eyes, marks the place Between here and where you once stood you turned away, hiding pale, cracked lips  I knew that you were fractured, eroding, turn to dust Ch: We lay side by side,  Painting arrows on our nails We name our constant target  After a place we never went You kiss me desperate under false moon glow Your mouth tastes of sand and the sky is stained I remember, a mirror, darker still recollection I love them though they’re not real Ch: We lay side by side,  Painting faces on our palms We name our future home After ghosts we’ve never know Ch: We lay side by side,  Painting sunlight in our eyes We name our falsehoods closely  After dreams we need to grow

A tree stands alone Outlined black against the snow The winter’s silence descends Darkness comforts like a friend Bringing songs of sadness to my lips A filigree of words and shapes Here I stand alone Like an ancient god, he stands Witness to all life Locked in years of solitude Outside all and yet within Dead leaves are forgotten memories Ghosts refusing their reprieve Here I stand alone And here the emptiness in my hand Reflects the places I have been And in the tree, I find myself The carnival of spring long gone Cling to life that I once lived Frozen breath outlines her form Here I stand alone Words are wind Words are breath Words are substance Words area real

There’s so little magic On this faded street All the landmarks Are lost Yet I hear the echo Of the memory of your footsteps Leading from home Ch. Still I follow the darkness To daylight’s bright grin And each time it takes me to strangers within Past judgmental eye A lunatic’s pride A rainstorm in a bouquet Ch. I cry out to god (a simple request) to show me the way Still I follow The sound leads away To you, to you, to you
