Track Name: Geist
There, there it is again: the will of the stars
A desire that will still,
Will still your bleeding heart
And make the mountains quake

He wants to win the sky, to own the air
Oh, so many thousands knew
A thousand men knew how
Fewer still know now

It is a lazy grave
That will end in your sleep
Oh Lord, in any way you can
Let me know

He wants to win the sky, to own the air, to have his share
Oh, so many thousands knew
A thousand men knew how
Fewer still know now
Track Name: Used as Both Shield and Sword
Waited up to wait it out
I built it up from the ground
On the other side of down
I hope you are found

And to bridge this great divide
To scratch at a oblivion
You will fortify your mind
Whatever else may come

And however else you fly
Nothing can stop you now
As you watch the days go by
Slowly counting down

What's the best thing in your life, champion?
What's the best part of your life, champion?

So far from home
(and you're good enough, you're good enough, you're good enough)
You'll roam the road
(and you're good enough, you're good enough, you're good enough)

Slow it down to speed it up
But the hands won't budge
And all you want is to be loved
That might be enough

It will be your shield and sword
On these golden plains
As you search for your reward
Always in vain

And however else you fly
Nothing can stop you now
As you watch the days roll by
Slowly counting down

What's the best thing in your life, champion?
What's the best part of your life, champion?

So far from home
(and you're good enough, you're good enough, you're good enough)
You'll roam the road
(and you're good enough, you're good enough, you're good enough)

On and on and on and on...

What's the best thing in your life, champion?
What's the best part of your life, champion?

So far from home
(and you're good enough, you're good enough, you're good enough)
You'll roam the road
(and you're good enough, you're good enough, you're good enough)
Track Name: The Other Face
With every lie you tell,
The boils on your other face, they start to swell
God it's an ugly sight,
Watching you stumble in a hurry to try and hide

I take this away,
Half of you is minotaur, and the other is snake
Where did you buy your mask?
It's clear it was forged by a master of her craft

Nobody wants to know
They can't, they don't
Everything goes...
And goes... and goes

Off to paradise I'll roam
Oh Elysian Fields, I'm finally home
If it were to disappear,
The memory would always be kept near

The calling of the grave
Sweetest sisters Misery, can I change your name?
And hang you off the moon?
Set my hopes and I'll climb up there pretty soon

The forks in the road
Never tell you which way your destiny will go
And mystery lies still,
Always mute and beckoning free exercise of will

Nobody wants to know
They can't, they won't
Everything goes...
And goes... and goes

Off to paradise I'll roam
Oh Elysian Fields, I'm finally home
If it were to disappear,
The memory would always be kept near
Track Name: Sea Song
Put all my love letters in dress-shoe boxes,
Kept the house impeccably clean,
Got my cologne in the refrigerator,
And frozen dinners buy-one-get-one-free

Active minds will follow idle bodies,
Ironing receipts of take-out Chinese,
I'm having problems with articulation,
So I'll knit hats for the cats to wear on holiday

And I... can't say it,
I guess I'll put it down somewhere in writing for you,
With a card, or a post it or something,
But I wouldn't know what weight of paper to use

Our friend Jon Sanning is getting married,
And the moon will crash into the sea
Under the waves will we all be buried,
In Neptune's realm we meet our final destiny

Speaking of which I thought I should put in,
How I've never quite come clean,
It's not a question of my depth of feeling,
It's just an answer I know but cannot speak

And I... can't say it,
Can I get you some more of that Tarte Flambé?
Or a soft drink? You know I love...
William Faulkner & Doris Day

After years of pain the words remain,
What I say is my only truth,
And to say it finally makes me free,
It was never you it was always me

I would wait by your side for the tide to rise,
And carry you on my back to shore,
I would carry you across the sun,
I will love you in a world undone

And now I say it
At last I say it
Oh my darling what you mean to me
In every thought
In every feeling
You're the ghost that haunts me out to sea

And all the sirens
With all their sweet song
Couldn't lure me away from you
My course is charted
No deviation
I will not hide my love from view
Track Name: Liquid Utopian Vision
I know all your hopes and dreams,
The big ideas worn on your sleeve
Truthfully what worth are they?
Ambitions alone won't pave the way

With one eye open,
With both I know you would fall
And it's funny while your laughing,
But it's satisfaction not everlasting

And you sit, and you wait,
For the day to come, but it's only in your mind,
And you think that it's fate,
That's left you there behind

The arrogance of youth is strong,
Its trickery may last too long
Time is never gracious,
Every breath and every word you have is gold

With one eye open,
With both I know you would fall
All those wasted days you wonder
And always regret what might have been

Oh, and you sit, and you wait,
For the day to come, but it's only in your mind,
And you think that it's fate,
That's left you there behind

Dreams are a funny thing,
A fuel for life from day to day,
But you, you just focus on
The trivial things that pass along your way

Wake up from your dreams I beg
And see the sweetness in your life
Cut out the excuses,
And your dreams will come and sweep you away

Oh, and you sit, and you wait,
For the day to come, but it's only in your mind,
And you think that it's fate,
That's left you there behind
Track Name: Raubtier
I've hunted you for miles and miles,
Tracked the scent of blood and bile
With pretty hands I reach your feet,
Seperating bone from meat

Ich bin ein Raubtier aus Kristall
Du hast überhaupt keine Wahl
Ich kriege alles was ich will
Und das ist sicherlich sehr viel

Und ich warte auf dich
Und ich warte auf dich

Your Lagan Love is far from fair,
Her hollow face and copper hair,
Of hot desire have stoked the flames,
Of countless knaves without names

Ich bin ein Raubtier aus Kristall
Du hast überhaupt keine Wahl
Ich kriege alles was ich will
Und das ist sicherlich sehr viel

Und ich warte auf dich
Und ich warte auf dich

The frosty sins upon my home,
Confront me everywhere I roam
Red on white I clenched your bride,
And in those snowy drifts she died

And all of your children will never be found
And all of your children will never be found
And all of your children will never be found
And all of your children will never
