A Blueprint of the World Lyrics

1. The Thirst (6:16)
There's a man who is lonely
This could change if he'd only
Take a chance and risk stepping outside himself
There's a girl he's been seeing
From afar he's been dreaming
he could have her if he were someone else
So he silently awaits
A major change in fate
A change that comes too late
And you're reaching for a star
But can you reach that far
Standing where you are?
The wanting was too much
You're longing for her touch
It's not within your clutch
There's a man who's been thinking
To himself he's been dreaming
How to build a skyscraper to the stars
Now he starts to go to it
He's so sure he cand do it
Though he's lacking the knowledge of design
Now his dream comes crashing around him
And tumbles to the sea
Along with all he wanted to be
A realization strikes him
A harsh reality
He doesn't know everything
When the student tries to teach
The knowledge that you seek
Lies just outside your reach
There's a thirst you have to learn
A hunger inside burns
Time for the page to turn
It's the wanting,It's the hoping,It's the longing
There's a flame within your soul
To strive to reach your goal
But dreaming takes its toll
It's nature's own device
To grab and roll the dice
But each toss has its price
Emotions starts to flow
Your heart takes control
And steers you down the road
Your destination is no concern
The impulsive never learn
Just another bridge to burn
It's the wanting,It's the hoping,It's the longing...

[Music and Lyrics: D.Ott]
2. Catharsis (5:53)
I've been a hungry and holy man
Trapped between what i am
And want to be
I disowned my mind
And denied my heart
Inspiration set me free
Reklinde the fire
Of what'll be
I see the fixed mark in the mirror
The North Star,no need to fear
Stop, I'm not time's fool
Just a nomad
Searching for life
Should I kill what gives me life
No, I've got to feel this
I've got to win this fight
She sanctions my right
I'm down on my knees
She refuted the meek
She offers the world
The world I seek
I see the fixed mark in the mirror
The North Star,no need to fear
Stop, I'm not time's fool
Just a nomad
Searching for life
You know the heart fuels the mind
Alleviates the grind
Gives reason to strive
Drawing strenght from the sky
Knowing nothing is wrong
How sublime a thing it is
To suffer and be strong

[Music: P. Craddick,Benignus,B. Cline]
[Lyrics: P. Craddick]
3. Oasis (8:11)
My destination is unknown
And i've lost my way
But I still have water
With my rations running low
I am so fatigued
Can I go much further?
Lost and all alone
In the blazing heat
And it just gets hotter
Sweat drips down my skin
And string my eyes
As I look toward the distance
Blistered hands block the sun
That blinds my sight
And dances on the horizon
Is there something up ahead?
Or just a mirage
Fooling me again
Another dried up waterhole
Lacking nourishment
Quench my thirst and feed my mind
The place that I seek is so far away
And I don't know which way to go
The vision I see is a holy place
That is tranquil to the soul
Just a nomad sailling across this earthly sea
Searching on and on for sanctuary
Weary from the chase of life's eluding dream
Strive to reach that goal but it's never ending
Raise my canteen to parched lips
Taste the water so sweet
Take one last swallow
So many miles I have come
So many more to go
Down the path I follow
Funny how we lose our way
Through this desolate land
Lives are grains of sand
Which way will the wind blow?
Sifting through our hands
To fall wherever they may
The place that I seek is so far away
And I don't know which way to go
The vision I see is a holy place
That is tranquil to the soul

[Music: D.Ott,P.Craddick]
[Lyrics: D.Ott]
4. Acquaintance (6:31)
When I spoke with you today
I didn't know what to say
It's been so long, so long
I said I'm doing fine
But what haunts my troubled mind
Is where it all went wrong, so wrong
I did not suspect
That we would not connect
And end up strangers
I could dance with you all night
Make love by candlelight
We could talk and talk but it's all in spite
Because you'll never be my friend
I could walk with you through the rain
We could share each other's pain
We could do all this but it's all in vain
Because you'll never be my friend
As time goes flying by
I have to wonder why
I don't see you anymore
they call it chemistry
What will or will not be
What's missing between you and me
[Chorus]
When I spoke with you today
I didn't know what to say
Maybe so long, so long
If you chance on me some night
Underneath some lone streetlight
Just wave and say,"So long ,so long"
I do not regret
The chance I shan't forget
And we're no longer strangers
You could dance with me all night
Make love by candlelight
We could talk and talk but it's all in spite
Because I'll never be your friend
You could walk with me through the rain
We could share each other's pain
We could do all this but it's all in vain
Because I'll never be your friend
Never be my friend,my friend
You wouldn't be my friend
And I couldn't be your friend
So long,so long...

[Music and Lyrics: D.Ott]
5. Mae Dae (3:24)
6. At Death's Door (7:16)
I run my desperate trembling hands
Along the floor were you once walked
Fighting tears that come from loss
I brave the rooms where we once talked
You took a part of me I never can reclaim
Your spirit's in my heart
But you know it's not the same
Straining to beat this blur of tears
Swollen eyes beg for my dead friend
Reminiscing with a photograph
Drives home (that) what was won't be again
I will to guarantee my reason will prevail
Pain breeds the need for make believe
To soothe a heart that's fail
Like a wind-up clock left in the rain
Like a candle burns away its light
We all suffer at death's door
As surely as day turns into night
I drop down to my knees and plead with the sky
Of course it does no good
But i'll give anything a try
Gazing,thinking,standing on a cliff
That guards the blue-green of the sea
I accept the blueprint of the world,that
All must pass away that's come to be
You meant so much to me
That's why there's all this pain
So much improved from our exchange
It will never be same
Like a wind-up clock left in the rain
Like a candle burns away its light
We all suffer at death's door
As surely as day turns into night
Like a wind-up clock left in the rain
Like a candle burns away its light
We all suffer at death's door
We all suffer loss...
As surely day changes into night

[Music: B.Cline, P.Craddick]
[Lyrics: P.Craddick]
7. East of Eden (5:50)
I'll soon use my hands
To carve paths through this caged world
Locked up by them
I must hold my courage
Whether their kind will ever give
Whether in life they'll ever live
Flaming eyes burn far above
A candle's glow
Naked to myself
Chained to change
One day see the light
As I grasp for this
My world
my joy
Purged of its life
They will seek their reward
Leading them on...
They'll bleed they own hearts
Steal my world
Asserting that I must sanction worse
Flaming eyes burn far above
A candle's glow
Naked to myself
Chained to change

[Music: Benignus,P.Craddick,D.Ott,B.clime]
[Lyrics: Benignus,P.Craddick]
8. Nighttime Sky (8:57)
I arise from sleeplesness invited by the wind
It lifts me up from loneliness and greets
Me as a friend
It beckons me to walk alone beneath the
Nighttime sky
An altar of frozen light to worship with my
Eyes
As you're lost within the view
Something reaches out and finds you
As you leave the sight behind
The feeling that remains, reminds you
With the wind in my hair,and heart in
Hand
Nature and I become one,she
Understands and speaks to me
Call to mind these images that surface
From the deep
Ghosts of sights that i have seen when
Sight was lost in sleep
I've looked across both time and space
And haven't blinked an eye
Fused with the things I've seen beneath
The nighttime sky
As you're lost within the view
Something reaches out and finds you
As you leave the sight behind
The feeling that remains, reminds you
As you're lost within the view
Something reaches out to form you
And when you leave the flames behind
The embers that remain will warm you

[Music: P.Craddick]
[Lyrics: P.Craddick,D.Ott]
9. Enchanted (7:17)
There's an aura around you
I'm captivated by your eyes
I can't believe that i've found you
Why am I so starry eyed?
I once lived with honor
Followed codes of chivalry
But I can't help but falter
Under the spell of Annowree
Oh- This love's not for real
The emotions I feel
Oh- stronger than tempered steel
Can't you see how I feel?
Where did you come from?
What's your name?
Is it all a game?
You ignite men's hearts aflame
To burn for you in vain
Like a magnet you draw me
Like a spider to the fly
An empty heart is so easy
To seduce and hipnotize
Oh- is this my destiny?
A lock whithout a key
No- this nightmare is no dream
Have I lost Reality?
Where did I come from?
What's my name?
Nothing seems the same
You ignite my heart aflame
To burn for you in vain
And the ones who let their hearts
Rule their minds
Will burn their bridges
When they've crossed
And leave the world behind...
Leave it all behind
No- this loves not for real
The emotions I feel
No- can I break this spell?
Only time will tell

[Music: D.Ott,P.Craddick]
[Lyrics: D.Ott]
10. Open Eyes (7:43)
Take a look outside your window
And tell me what you see
Does everything look fine to you?
It seems the air is a litle hazy
And the grass is much too green
What's this world coming to?
I see you haven't noticed
What's happening around you
Tell me who is fooling who?
If you choose not to take notice
And you look the other way
The path's not yours to choose
Open eyes tell no lies
The blind can see through open eyes
How is the view looking through closed eyes
It must seem very dim
Living life in such fear
Like a blind man in the darkness
Clutches to familiar things
Until he's sure the path is clear
See the walls you've built around you
It's a fortress that you've made
Such a lonely solitude
But your fortress is a prision
And you locked yourself away
Sheltered from the truth
Open eyes
If you opened up your eyes
Open eyes
You would see through the disguise
Open eyes
Accept the truth refute the lies
Open eyes
Open eyes tell no lies
The blind can see through open eyes
So think about who's thinking for you
Do you have a life to waste
Seeing what they want you to see?
You can lead a horse to water
But you cannot make him drink
Having the choice means everything
See the walls you've built around you
Too much trouble to escape
Well I guess that you're doomed
To live a life of indecision
You're buried alive,too late
Shall I seal up your tomb?
Open eyes tell no lies
The blind can see through open eyes
