From The Well

In The Wake
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

As the essence bleeds out of me
Left with a presence all to see
Spiral constellation of sound
Left the path, the soul unwound

Wrote today to a lot girl man
My evolution close at hand
Left my past, the future unfolds
New reasons for my story untold

In the wake of love
In the wake of love

And so hope is piecing me
All I ever wanted was to be free
Control desires oh I wish
But what is this that's in my dish?
A woman hurts like hell you know
But the theory's worse than love is slow

So onward plummet in our art
Life seems like a giddy dart
And trust becomes an only chance
To perform a stage of glory dance
I'd like to stash it in a drawer
Leave and forget by the nearest door
Burning, searching by the window
Felt no alarm but calm and still

In the wake of love
In the wake of love

And so hope is piecing me
All I ever wanted was to be free
Control desires oh I wish
But what is this that's in my dish?
A woman hurts like hell you know
But the theory's worse than love is slow

Wooh ooh ooh
Wooh ooh ooh
Wooh ooh ooh ooh

 

Her Mark
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

One night in sensation
When the world comes undone
A long rush of flavor
All over the tongue

Leaves her mark on the table
Leaves her mark on my mind
The past drifting wayward
Melts into the sublime

The lost lonely saviour
Got a wind in her sail
I was left just to follow
The scent of her trail

Now works that concentration
Leaves her mark on my hand
Mother Nature connection
Are we at her command

Leaves her mark on the table
Leaves her mark on my mind
Leaves her mark on the table
Leaves her mark on my mind

Leaves her mark on my mind

 

Only Wait
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

I know I made you angry
So many times before
But when I feel you near me
Nothing makes me feel more

I've loved you for all these years
Don't want you to go
You don't know what love is
If you don't know what to do now

Sometimes love is like the tide
If we only wait this problem will subside
I know if we live through this
There's a lot of trouble we'll pass into bliss

There isn't often times I pray
Like the night that we began
Yet I'd rather not betray
The fight of the partisan

I know there's been so many
Promises and histories
Meant to break or hem in
I'm free to know what love is

Sometimes love is like the tide
If we only wait this problem will subside
I know if we live through this
There's a lot of trouble we'll pass into bliss

 

Horses In The Sand
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

And we'll ride horses in the sand
Yeah, we'll ride horses in the sand

Cool waves wash across a blood-stained lands
Silver precious loves slip through our hands
Hot blanket air smothers lingering pain
Roads really clean from the evening rain

And we'll ride horses in the sand
We'll ride horses in the sand

Volcano dust clouds the welcoming sea
Palm trees wave like you and me
Music plays on now from the past
We can only hope our song will last

But we'll ride horses in the sand
Yes we'll ride horses in the sand

And we'll ride horses in the sand
Yeah we'll ride horses in the sand

Tell me the story of your development
Added it to the nighttime where we went
Independence day, celebrate the nations
And the people who survive equations

Riding horses in the sand (riding horses)
Riding horses in the sand (riding horses)
We'll ride horses in the sand (riding horses)
Yeah, we'll ride horses in the sand (riding horses in the sand)

 

The Lost Peace
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

Now you work it out
Without fear or a doubt
Not everything you touch will turn to gold

You make me turn around
If you raise your breath to shout
Not everyone who's brave it seems are bold

So thanks very much
It's not my right to judge
Probably won't have the time to say goodbye

Did you realize you've sold
Those secrets I did hold
A peace of mind, peace of mind

First you say you won't
Then you say you will
Makes me feel like staying here and standing very still

So if you've got the number
Of a faithful friend to rumba
Use it now, your time spent here's worth little

So don't hold me back
You won't catch me in this sad
Tragic celebrations always pass me by

And experience at cost
Well you can't call it lost
A peace of mind, peace of mind
Peace of mind, peace of mind

There may be a solution
If we all agree to choose one
Answers won't come falling from the sky

The truth won't land you blind
It's all we hope to find
And you know something always comes along

So thanks very much
It's not my right to judge
Probably won't have the time to say goodbye

Did you realize you've sold
Those secrets I did hold
A peace of mind, peace of mind
Peace of mind, peace of mind

I Wonder
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

Only you knows the secret
Of desire and how to keep it
You've been blessed with the gift of natural law

I wander 'round in a circular valley
I want a glimpse of hope and you'll have me
Weary voyager on your island shore

I wonder if I'm feeling better
Or if it's your turn to cry
I wonder if I'm feeling better now

In the womb, never thought of leaving
Comfort of life without a meaning
Then with trust came ecstasy and my tears

Chance had it lost in the sands
What'd you learn with lonely friends
A faded fire, a painful souvenir

I wander 'round in a circular valley
I want a glimpse of hope and you'll have me
Weary voyager on your island shore

I wonder if I'm feeling better
Or if it's your turn to cry
I wonder if I'm feeling better now

I wonder if I'm feeling better
Or if it's just a type of lie
I wonder if I'm feeling better now

I wonder if I'm feeling better
Or if it's just a type of lie
I wonder if I'm feeling better now

I wonder if I'm feeling better
Or if it's your turn to cry
I wonder if I'm feeling better now

I wonder if I'm feeling better
Or if it's your turn to cry
I wonder if I'm feeling better now

I wonder if I'm feeling better
Or if it's just a type of lie
I wonder if I'm feeling better now

 

Lullaby
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

Lay down your head, oh weary soldier
Lay down your head upon my knee
The fat is warm from here to heaven
It's just the way it's supposed to be

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, laa-la
It's just the way it's supposed to be

Lay down your head, oh weary sailor
Lay down your head out on the sea
And ride the waves high o'er de troubles
It's just the way it's supposed to be

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, laa-la
It's just the way it's supposed to be

Lay down your head, oh weary fire
Lay down your head here close to me
The winds of change may blow you wayward
It's just the way it's supposed to be

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, laa-la
It's just the way it's supposed to be

Lay down your heads my little children
Lay down your heads the night is deep
And like a dream the day is over
It's just the way it's supposed to be

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, laa-la
It's just the way it's supposed to be

Lay down your heads upon the pillow
Lay down your heads it's time to sleep
And raised at dawn may your true wishes
Be the way they're supposed to be

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm-mmm
It's just the way it's supposed to be

 

Desert Flower Bride
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

Half-dark lady from the Amazon
Spoke perfect moments before she was gone
Her soul reached out from her deep brown eyes
She said "I'm a victim of these earthly ties"

I don't know what love's about
I don't know what love's about
Feel it falling on the ground
Our fate is dealing one of a kind
I wish that it was then that we died
A Spring rain desert flower bride
Now I'm hoping that it never ends

I don't know what love's about
I don't know what love's about
Then she gave me a gentle kiss
The winter blows, I was lost in the mist
She disappeared as in a dream
Wading out into the scene

I don't know what love's about
I don't know what love's about
Sometimes passion on my breath
Makes me think about her death

Teary-eyed child pumps a mother's heart
Mother and father lived within a lie
Blood and water none comparison
The new parents treat him like a son

I don't know what love's about
I don't know what love's about
And yet there's times when a kid leaves home
In a family yet so alone
Drifting visions of their own
To find their place or else get stoned

I don't know what love's about
I don't know what love's about

I don't know what love's about
I don't know what love's about

Don't know what love's about

I don't know what love's about
I don't know what love's about
Sometimes passion on my breath
Makes me think about her

Testing 3.2.1.
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

In primitive existence man fought war one-to-one
The law of survival was fight, if not then run
Modern aggression has much more at stake
A world no one inherits if there's nothing in the wake

Now you found charity
Yeah you found sanctity
You crushed the one thing that holds you dear
And wonder when you're left holding a spear

You cut out misgivings and you call out the young
Walk on to breakfast and you count down to one
Sigh with persistence as you call up the sun
And refuse to see it but you count down to one

Now you found better love/bedlam [1:25]
Then you found asylum
You crushed the one thing that holds you dear
And wonder when you're left holding a spear

Now you found better love/bedlam [2:16]
Then you found asylum
You crushed the one thing that holds you dear
And wonder when you're left holding a spear

Now you found charity
Yeah you found sanctity
You crushed the one thing that holds you dear
And wonder when you're left holding a spear

Anthem
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

I was the man that gave life a hand
I was the man who covered the land
The kind of a man not lost and damned in my trail

In silence I sang
Baa-ed like a lamb
My heart did beat that the world would eat from my hand

All that's left is the stance
All that's left is the stance

I was the man
Who cried like a man
A matter of fact you could tell by the hat on his head

In my command
I summoned a stand
It pleased me not, delights not got on demand

All that's left is the stance
All that's left is the stance

I was the man
Who gave life a hand

 

Iridescence EP
Peak To Peak
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

Sounds of the crash can be heard
Echoing up through these winding streets
Calm isolation to sweet penetration
Living on from beat to beat

Mohammed with hand on his chin
Buzzes the world from inside a cave
Cloistered from peers with celibate fears
Can not be late for his being
Welcome to the human race

Down from the mountain now
Into the valley of love
Down from the mountain now
They whisper "good for you"

As the snow starts to fall
Made crystal clear, clearer than glass
Joined in the [1:07] air from the peaks of the snare
In London like footsteps in wait [1:11]

Stained in stone to the sky
Everything there building they go [1:19]
Laughter hides, beckons the spy
Approach of the women takes hold
Where there's a sweat of the cold

Down from the mountain now
Into the valley of love
Down from the mountain now
They whisper "good for you"

Walked away from your loneliness
Battle caged now with the rest [1:49]
Down from the mountain
Though it's been good for you

As the snow starts to fall
Made crystal clear, clearer than glass
Join in an [2:21] air from the peaks of the snare
The louder they put steps in lies [2:24]
Living on from peak to peak

Down from the mountain now
Into the valley of love
Down from the mountain now
They whisper "good for you"

Walked away from your loneliness
Battle caged now with the rest [2:49]
Down from the mountain
Though it's been good for you

The Destroyer
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

The world's critical in every day
Can't find me last night, bick it in gool [0:40]
This glittering tremblin' hypnotic war
Destroys me again
Destroys me again

Underneath the broken window
Lamplight smiles, knife grinders breathing
There were only dead men nestled beside me
This light is slow
This light is slow

Further and further and further and ooh
Further and further and further and ooh

Someone must have heard me 'cause no one else will hear
Give me a roll, give me a roll of fear
Destruction beckons and you can't resist
I'll put you through your family tear

Further and further and further and ooh
Further and further and further and ooh
