Track Name: Shine
When sunrise marks the start of day
They close their eyes
When the oak trees start to sway
They run and hide
But when the sunlight goes away
They come alive
And they shine

When your whole world begins to fray
Don’t you cry
When the storm clouds move on their way
You breathe a sigh
But when there’s nothing left to say
You have to try
And you shine

When it feels as though my heart will break
You’re by my side
When I think I’ve made my big mistake
You put it right
And we shine
Track Name: the Price
What will it take to earn your love?
What will it take to earn your love?

Thirty pieces of silver and an ounce of gold.
Thirty pieces of silver and an ounce of gold.
Then you’ll have my love.

What will it take to have your love?
What will it take to have your love?

A pound of flesh and a pint of blood.
A pound of flesh and a pint of blood.
Then you’ll have my love.

What will it take to know your love?
What will it take to know your love?

Half a moment or a million hours.
Half a moment or a million hours.
Then you’ll know my love.
Track Name: Snow Day
She walks through umbrella’d plazas
People hurry by
Hats and hoods obscure their faces
No one sees the sky
Puddles create obstacles
Detours need to be made
She stands up to the falling rain
And continues on her way

She says: “Sometimes I don’t mind the rain
It washes all the snow away
Sometimes I enjoy the snow
It gives me a day to be alone”

She strolls down deserted sidewalks
The shops are closed today
No traffic on the avenue
The people are away
Snow banks bordering the roads
Make it hard to get around
She violates the chilly wind
And proceeds through the town

She says: “Sometimes I don’t mind the rain
It washes all the snow away
Sometimes I enjoy the snow
It gives me a day to be alone”
Track Name: Your Eyes
I
Love your eyes
‘cos they allow you to see me
And
Let you know
Just where I stand
Follow
My motions
And make you aware
They let you know I’m here
You know I’m here

I
Love your ears
‘cos they allow you to hear me
And
Let you know
Just what I say
Grasping
the Meaning
And make you aware
They let you know I’m here
You know I’m here

You know I’m here
When the lights are down
You know I’m here
When the traffic’s loud
You know I’m here
Though you’re half asleep
You know I’m here
Though I’m out of reach
You know I’m here
If the tide is high
You know I’m here
If you have to sigh
You know I’m here
Do you wonder why?
You know I’m here
Do you wonder why?
You know I’m here
Do you wonder why?

I
Love your hands
‘cos they allow you to touch me
And
Let you know
Just how I feel
Scratching
The surface
And make you aware
They let you know I’m here
You know I’m here
Track Name: Wish You Were Here
Matt sings lead on this one. I also want to point out that there is no guitar on this track either. Those solo bits are all bass.
Track Name: I Cry Alone
Everybody’s smilin’ at each other
Everybody’s smilin’ at themselves
But if I smile at you
I smile alone

Everybody’s cryin’ over their misfortune
Everybody’s cryin’ over their pain
But if I cry for you
I cry alone

Everybody’s dyin’ to get to heaven
Everybody’s dyin’ to avoid this hell
But if I die for you
I die alone
Track Name: Shadow Voice
Apathy, you frame me
Ecstasy, you claim me
Honesty, you blame me
Empathy, you tame me

Obvious, you loose me
Envious, you choose me
Obsequious, you use me
Amorous, you refuse me

Why don’t we release the saviour of us all?

Destruction, you bind me
Compassion, you find me
Adoration, you wind me
Ambition, you grind me

Confidence, you view me
Opulence, you woo me
Arrogance, you do me
Innocence, you screw me
Track Name: Mantra #6
The sets so carefully constructed and painted
How they rearrange
The cast hired to play the parts
How they strange
The final edit of the dialogue
How they change

The frames that hold the image steady
How they shift
The tags and stickers that inform and explain
How they lift
The lines and borders that separate
How they drift

When the statues you carved
No longer stand
Just remember
The past is in your hands
