Track Name: When the Sun Cries
Only when the sun cries
Will there be a bad day
Rays of light will always find
A way to creep in

It's my delight to kiss the blight
when god's ship is sinking
I'll go down without a frown
My true home lies on the ground

The center of my soul
My ultimate goal
Lies beyond here
I will see through this guise
Only when the sun cries

Eager but sure
I dove in to find you
Unprepared and unawares
Your eyes were full of restless stares
I reached for your hand
With full intent to guide you
You pulled away you'd rather stray
I know you want to find your own way

to the center of your soul
our ultimate goal lies beyond here
i will see through this guise
only when the sun cries

the feeling begins to writhe
from the bottom of my spine
wraps a coil around my heart
and i'm looking to the skies
searching for the promise
i made myself so long ago
could you be my messenger
calling to my soul
waves of thought that aren't mine
push them to the side
every time i fall apart
i feel i'm getting closer

to the center of my soul
my ultimate goal
lies beyond here

i will see through this guise
only when the sun cries
Track Name: Ignition
I used to admire the rising sun
moments before my time awake was done
but now i greet him as i drive
to the dues i must pay
to keep the dream alive
I used to think
that she was the one
but then there was another
and another
and then some
I can't resist the thrill of the mission
We had the spark, but where was the ignition?

chorus:
Just cuz I'm movin on doesn't mean I've sung my last song for you
Just cuz I'm not around doesn't mean I always sleep so soundly
without you there
but I'm not there

I caught you in a moment, i think you saw my eyes were open
i can't forget the expression upon your face that said
what the hell am i doing in this place
and i empathize babe
its hard to wrap the finite mind
around the black sarlaac of time as it devours space
but love is not erased
i'm here til the end
as a lover and as a friend
but these feet love to wander, and this head loves to wonder
and this heart will love til the body turns to dust

chorus x 2
Track Name: Monsufariel
Monsufariel
Deciding what i call real
it's you
and it's me
and what is never seen

gone like raindrops
forming falling dissolving

born like the wind
nothing into nothing
it's motion
inside of stillness
empty
within the fullness
impoverished
among the rich

wealthy beyond comparison
whatever it is that we imagine

becomes us and fades away
waiting for the day
to be new

never to be seen again
Track Name: Wolf Will Run
I'm not running from the law
and I'm not running from my past
I've never looked behind me
what am I running from
I've never looked behind me I'm running so fast

The means all break down to the end
And emptiness must be filled once again
Am i the game or an arrow unaimed
or just the wolf that's been howling
inside my head

When my current speed is spent
I will open up my head
and let it pour, til I can't think no more
about wherever the hell I've been

the means all break down to the end
and emptiness must be filled once again
am i the game or an arrow unaimed
or just the wolf that's been howling inside my head

the laugh that lives
still on inside
run free young brother
til the day that we die
and still live on
in a song that is free
the wolf will run
let him be
Track Name: Sunrise
You are the summer in a sunrise
I always know you're coming back around
bringing the world into these loving eyes
even when my heart is buried underground

You are the maiden on the moonbeams
lately you've been dancing across my mind
between the weaver and tapestry
we are the motion of the loom

i get this feeling from the east of here
it makes it so tempting to disappear
we are the keepers of our atmosphere
creations preserving destruction

break me open
i'm almost through tonight
break me open
i've almost seen your light
break me open
i'm almost through tonight
break me open
just like sunrise
Track Name: Nomad
No matter where i go
some are fast and others slow
no matter where I'm seen
there's one thing can't take from me
my way is the way i be
sending songs to infinity
sounds we strum
and tunes we hum
are carrying all of us home

no matter where i am
i'm in the center which began
no matter what you say
something brought me here today
no matter what i do
nothing happens
moving through
no matter what the cause
swimming seas of karmic laws

nomad's going along the way
following soul, into the journeys
of today
wherever he goes
the faces change
but the light inside remains the same

time goes on and on
another chance for another song
no matter what you dream
there's no reason not to be it
no matter near or far
keep it steady, we're here already
no matter where i go
i am the same

nomad's going along the way
following soul
into the journey of today
wherever he goes
the faces change
but the light inside remains the same
