Track Name: Aer
can't you hear the dreamers cry
calling through the evening sky
sending off a gentle light
and it's sofly fading

will you see the road ahead
though its ways are paved with pain
each step forward an embrace
by the future waiting
Track Name: Solar Flare
there's an answer
floating through the sky
falling closer
try to open my eyes

there's a signal
written in the night
burns like fire
in my heart and eyes, oh

so tell me where do the answers lie
why am i flying alone
so tell me what is the reasoning
where will this day unfold, oh

i'm still dreaming
recognise the signs
has no meaning
'til i let it unwind

if i speak it
if i bring it to life
takes me closer
and becomes my new sight

so tell me where do the answers lie
why am i flying alone
so tell me what is the reasoning
where will this day unfold, oh
Track Name: Inhale
still your face i see
hiding in the shadows
believe that it's not done
it's not done, oh
Track Name: Eclipse
learning to run, learning to run each day i spend
with you within, i'm leaning on your waiting arms
you told me to look, told me to see you in everything
i see you, i feel you, the rhythm in the rain, oh

teach me to learn, teach me to hold you in my arms
i'll try if you'll only promise to show the way
drifting along on this tide of imaginings
singing my soul out just so you'll know my name, oh

into the night, into the night i'm hastening
forgetting the fading day that left us behind
hurry along, hurry along, it's getting late
darkness enfolding a lonely, barren sky, oh

ask me, ask me, come and find me
hold me closer, little higher
take me, take me out alive

ask me, ask me, come and find me
hold me closer, little higher
take me, take me out alive
Track Name: Infinity
darkness in the night
feel it arrive
taking all my time
vision sublime

feeling the light in the night
i can hear it calling to me, calling
heeding the night
seeking the night

forget it every time
losing my mind
twisted up inside
rescue denied

feeling the light in the night
i can hear it calling to me, calling
heeding the night
seeking the night

feeling the light in the night
i can hear it calling to me, calling
heeding the night
seeking the night

too late to look backwards
this is our time
too late to look backwards
this is our time
Track Name: Moros
take the blow
i'm falling
arms held back
i'm writhing
deadened heart
is slowly dying
wisdom falls
away

i wonder
if this is real, true
there is no light
behind, in front

daylight comes
i'm leaving
all that's tired
and grey
take this dream
away
midnight steals
the day
Track Name: Descent
i'm on my way, i'm falling
into a room that's closing in
and i guess i'll try
won't give up the fight, oh

there is a whisper calling
into the ether, follow on
so i guess i'll try
and i won't ask why, oh

i'm on way, i'm falling
into a room that's closing in
and i guess i'll try
i'll give up the fight, oh
Track Name: Exhale
i'm falling down
i'm falling down
all the way unfurled
it's over

i'm falling down
i'm falling down
unravel just to find
it's over

oh, say it's over
oh, let it be over
oh, say i'm alright
oh say it's over
oh, let it be over
oh, say i'm alright

oh, say it's over
oh, let it be over
oh, say i'm alright
oh, say it's over
oh, let it be over
we will be alright

long night is over
darkest hours are over
push aside the blinds
see the horizon
warming with the new day
returning us to life
Track Name: Rocking
rocking in slumber against the rhythm
of a heart that's beating too quick to fathom
i'll sing you this lullaby slow and soothing tonight

colours that burst and just melt into blackness
a twisting of arrows returning to haunt us
a mystery feeding the darkness that brings out the light

so sing with me, be with me, fly
as we follow the depths of the skies
they're changing and bringing us
into the dawn

wrists that are bare as my soul's creation
a feeling that all is against the nations
that call out and cry to be freed from this darkest of nights

i'll take you, i'll lead you, i'll be your mother
i'll guide you, i'll offer my blood like water
you'll listen and see that this darkness will soon be the light

so sing with me, be with me, fly
as we follow the depths of the skies
they're changing and bringing us
into the dawn

so sing with me, be with me, fly
as we follow the depths of the skies
they're changing and bringing us
into the dawn

i'll take you, i'll lead you, i'll be your mother
i'll guide you, i'll offer my blood like water
i'll take you, i'll lead you, i'll be your mother
i'll guide you, i'll offer my blood like water
Track Name: Metamorphosis
easy like the day you stole into my life
distancing yourself from all this needless strife
disconnected memories you left behind
metamorphosis is learning not to hide

i am the reason why
i'm hiding in my mind
escaping like a thief
into an unknown night

it isn't what it seems
a balled up mess of lies
that keeps these folded wings
from opening in flight

easy come
and easy go
let it in
or let it go

easy come (easy come, the wait is over)
and easy go (easy go, it's all the same)
let it in (let it in, unless it's over)
or let it go (let it go, you're in control)

easy come
and easy go
let it in
or let it
go
Track Name: Athanasia
talking with the wind, she's passing over
talking with the wind, she's seen the night
colour, no colour, she sighs

tenderly she wraps her arms around me
vapour of the heavens near and far
she's speaking, speaking of time

fill me with your voice, i'll hear you
tell your stories far and wide
i'll seek you, seek you, don't hide

fill me with your voice, i'll hear you
tell your stories far and wide
i'll seek you, seek you, don't hide
