Track Name: Halfway
HALFWAY

It's halfway here
And we're all alone
Years shifting beneath my window
Where we've grown

There's nothing but cold, sullen air in between us
I lie here with nothing inside is where I'm found
There's no turning back to be saved by where I've grown
I try to move on, but the fear keeps me frozen

Always haunting me
Keeps on coming
Calling the dare in my hands

Something comes over me...
And it's amazing how things change

I don't see clear
But the end will be
Flames flicker in true celebration
While burning me

I faced all the demons that shaped my futility
I tried, but gained nothing while taking eternity
My delusions of grandeur amount to nothing here
I never have shined so I leave blackened embers

Always haunting me
Keeps on coming
Calling the dare in my hands

Last night
I dreamt that all the joy could fill my arms
Light surrounded me and I was warm
Vapor filled the air from what was born
And I felt life grow in me
I woke to feel my smile
And I knew that this I had to see
But the mirror was gone...

Waiting for the final release of the hammer
Floating on the same wave where nothing matters now
Just my silent release, or is it justice I'm after?
Any sign of reprieve has only been shattered

Always haunting me
Keeps on coming
Calling the dare in my hands to be wrested and

Something comes over me...
And it's amazing how things change
Track Name: Twisting In Heaven
Twisting In Heaven
by Mark Walker

I'm not afraid of anything
Unless it's in the air I breathe
The holy merchant weaves the screen
Try to capture my belief
Speaking in tongues sounds like fun
But it ain't my cup of tea
I can't say that I've been led astray
By the voice inside of me

Twisting in Heaven...

You say you speak the words of God
But your words don't quite ring true
If God almighty spoke to me
I don't think he'd sound like you

Hold me

You drive me right out of my mind
You've sold me
Show me where to sign...

Twisting in Heaven
Holding your breath to catch your fall
Twisting in Heaven
Eyes crossed, your back turned to us all

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for you
You're as loved as one could be
With such an amazing deity
I guess you don't need me

Hold me
You drive me right out of my mind
You've sold me
Show me where to sign...

Twisting in Heaven
Holding your breath to catch your fall
Twisting in Heaven
Eyes crossed, your back turned to us all

You drive me right out of my mind...
Track Name: Fantasy #29 in G Major
Fantasy #29 in G major

On a cool day
The sky is misting on her skin
In golden halo ray

Cut away the pain
Rain will wash away the nightmares
From her weathered arms

Oh…
Buried in the sound
Oh…
Let your lover drown

Iceburg breaks the wave
Kisses lingering in valleys
Running rivers flow

But you and I we still believe
When you give up on love
You give up everything

Tension pulsating
Flexing tremors she relaxes
With a silken tongue

Smiling when I came
Heatwaves radiate sweet nectar
And glistening ass

Oh…
Buried in the sound
Oh…
Let your lover drown

You run away, you run away
You bury this inside
You run away, you run away
A bleeding heart's last rites
Smothering the pain with passion
Still it haunts you endlessly all these years
Is this your final fantasy?

You run away, you run away
You murder in disguise
And pray that someone's listening
Somewhere in the night
Delivering the blow in silence
As you raise your monument of tears
Was it just like your fantasy?

May love keep you alive
Track Name: I Just Called...
I JUST CALLED...

No New Years Day to celebrate,
No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away,
No first of spring, no song to sing,
In fact, here's just another ordinary day.

I just called to say I love you;
I just called to say how much I care;
I just called to say I love you,
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

No April rain, no flowers' bloom,
No wedding Saturday within the month of June.
But what it is is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you.

No summer's high, no warm July,
No harvest moon to light one tender August night,
No autumn breeze, no falling leaves,
Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies.

No Libra sun, no Halloween,
No giving thanks for all the Christmas joy you bring,
But what it is, tho' old, so new,
To fill your heart like no three words could ever do.
Track Name: The Seduction
The Seduction

The Earth opens over my head
My eyes extinguish the light
Falling to the sky bathed in black
The dirt which once buried me

As long as you shall be
There's no escape from me

You
Instigate this rape of privacy
Have you only come to torture me?
I'm locked away with everything you fear
All that you've lost but still hold dear

I'll be walking in your footsteps...
If you should lead
Lead me, I must follow...

Seeds like diamonds burst from my eyes
As life's breath now comes to be
Elation of a soul once lost
Are you the ghost of me?

As long as you shall be
You will always have me

You
You can only run and hide so far
From the mirror showing who you are
Once abandoned by the soul in me
What I've feared has come to rescue me

I'll be walking in your footsteps...
If you should lead
Lead me, I must follow...
Track Name: Bed Of Love
BED OF LOVE

In this bed of love we lie
Serenity in the shade of night
Protection from our tragedies
Ensure this sleep protecting me
My eyes dart open
I hope to see
My eyes wide open
Protecting me

It keeps me running,
Keeps me running from anger...

And you are oh, so beautiful

"A guinea-pig, helpless - this life I touch. My hands, cradled direction, unaided by the sense to protect - or the understanding of vulnerability from the eyes of a giant, yet understanding cruelty from the eyes of the small."

And still the beasts breathe deep within
Poised to act when sleep begins
This bed of love is my denial
Escape my crimes not seen by trial
Monsters - all
We've come to be
Monsters - all
We've come to be

It keeps me running,
Keeps me running from anger...

And you are oh, so beautiful
Track Name: Be My Angel (single version)
They say it's me that makes you do things
You might not have done if I was away
And that it's me who likes to talk to you
And watches you as you walk away

Don't say it's useless
Don't say forget it
Don't bring me wishes
Of silly dreams
Just say it's all
From too much freedom
Too many fingers
And too many seams

They say it's you that washes the wind
And brings the night into the day
If you won't notice how can I show you
All of your worries have all gone away?

Don't leave me lonely
Don't leave me unhappy
Just bring me up into your faith
If you don't need me
Then don't deceive me
Letting my freedom turn into stone

Just be my angel
If you love me
Be my angel
In the night
Be my angel
If you need me
Be my angel
Treat me right

Don't say "Love me" if you don't need me
Don't send me roses on your behalf
Just take me down and walk through your river
Down in the middle and make it last
Holding onto you holding onto me
Holding on tight to my lover's cross
Don't say it's useless and don't say forget it
You were my spirit and now you are gone
Track Name: At The End Of The Wire
At the end of the wire
You'll find happiness
At the end of the wire
You will be truly blessed
At the end of the wire
There is no kingdom to be won
At the end of the wire
There is no setting sun

At the end of the wire
There is no red hotel
At the end of the wire
There is no buy & sell

Where the streets are alight with promise
And the harvest will fail no one
And there's always an answer to your call
Your battles are always won

At the end of the wire
The jukebox plays 'Aladdin Sane'
At the end of the wire
There is no bullet with your name

Where there's no suffering in silence
And there's no effigy worth fighting for
And after the rain comes
You'll see beyond the open sky
After the rain comes
The wishes you made start coming true
After the rain comes
Believing is starting to grow

At the end of the wire
You will find happiness
At the end of the wire
Everyone can kiss your ass

All the meek of the Earth will come running
And lay flowers around your toes
You can suddenly hear with your deaf ear
And you look great without your clothes

At the end of the wire
There is no blood for oil
At the end of the wire
There are no loved ones under soil

Where there's no suffering in silence
And there's no effigy worth fighting for
And after the rain comes
You'll see beyond the open sky
After the rain comes
The wishes you made start coming true
After the rain comes
Believing is starting to grow

At the end of the wire
There are no promises made
At the end of the wire
There will be mercy in your shade
At the end of the wire
You will become your worth
At the end of the wire
There will be peace on Earth
