1. Dream the Dead (8:11)
Never felt like this before,
Like the window in the water,
Worlds of worthy sacrifice,
But you made me feel alive,
The light through dreamer's eyes.

I'm taking what I need,
Can't stop what you've begun,
Like you can't drown the morning sun again,
Wouldn't kill to let you die for this...
Give it to me,
Can't stop what you've begun,
Give it to me,
Can't drown the morning sunlight,
Crying out, I'm begging you for this.

Leave us to dream the dead
Sing it loud
Legacy means it's over
Sober
Leave us to dream the dead
Sing it loud
Begging to justify and admire it

Dream what I need
And nothing more

Give it to me

You wasted heaven on saving yourself
So give me your broken shadow
So feed me empty echo
Pay me
Pay me what you owe

Can't stop what you've begun
Like you can't drown the morning sunlight
Crying out, I'm begging you for this

Leave us to dream the dead
Sing it loud
Legacy means it's over
Sober
Leave us to dream the dead
Sing it loud
Begging to justify and admire it

To build a world for a moment
You have the light to bring the night to life
Rand there I stood, overcome
For a moment

You can't stop
Show me
I need you
Dream the dead
You can't stop
Not now, please
I need you
Dream the dead
You can't stop
Show me
I need you
Dream the dead
You can't stop
Show me
It's all we can hope for

We will remember
The colour and the comfort
We lay to rest
The poison's sweet
And nothing lasts forever
2. Will's Song (Let the Colours Run) (4:42)
Find me
I could chase the very sun
There could be something left, a little piece of me

Find me
Out there, cast against the waves
Your seven days of peace, and nothing left of me
Find me

Drown
Face down in the water that's meant for me
Soon
One more
Isn't this everything that you asked for?
Drown
No love for the living and empty lungs
Soon
Sing dead sons
It's lights out, give them something to live for

You best run home boy
Before you wear the weight
You can run your mouth at every light
That marks the way...
You best run far boy
With these old bones
I could fill your lungs with the last of my breath
So boy, you best run far

I am the flame that lit the way
You feed and grow by my will
And time breeds only decay?
Oh please, I am that young man still.

Let the colours run,
Lights out, give them something to live for

Breathe while the waves rise,
Fill my lungs, the sacred water
Down, ever down, dive
Will the weight to drag me under

What I still needed to lead me, to save me
Could have been someone, to the wind, soon
Feed it, it's fading to nothing, to ashes,
Feed the beast! Never! To the wind!
Feel it, it could be another triumph
Giving in, over to the wind, soon
Bring me the poison, to lead me, to save me
Like a child, take me to the wind

You best run home boy
Before you wear the weight
You can run your mouth at every light
That marks the way...
You best run far boy
With these old bones
I could fill your lungs with the last of my breath
So boy, you best run far

I am the flame that lit the way
You feed and grow by my will
And time breeds only decay?
Oh please, I am that young man still

Let the colours run
Lights out, give them something to live for.
3. The Hands are the Hardest (4:26)
Wait, love
For sight as though I never knew that I was blind
Mercy, patience, promises we left behind
All I can hope for is to wake, love
And trembling hands to stillness find their way
Quiet, I can hold my breath
And to hope to god it stays
The hands are the hardest
Always

And sober never shone quite so bright
Colour me blind, just empty glass on canvas

The hands are the hardest

One more
Stare into the dream the dead are begging for
This is what you wanted, feed me, give me all
Deep in the poison, find the cure

When sober gives me spark
I will stand in the light
When sober gives me eyes

I'll sue for peace
These sweet dreams
Sue for peace
These sweet dreams

Love conquers all, you said
But until then, light be damned
And down that hole I dive again

When sober gives me spark
I will stand in the light
When sober gives me eyes

I'll sue for peace
These sweet dreams
Sue for peace
These sweet dreams

This is what you've always wanted
Seeing in colour now
Look at what you made me do
Make me a martyr
This is where our dreams have brought us
Laying me softly down
Look at what you made me do
All for you
This was for our sons and daughters
All for you
Look at where our dreams have brought us
4. Love Conquers All (2:21)
Need some time to make it right
O mountain mine, I lost my fight
O mountain mine, just give me time

The beast that I have become
Could set me free of this
If only I had the time
If only these hands were mine
Without the muse in my lungs
Without her sweet taste on my tongue
I don't need the strength to fight
Only to stand in the light
For a little while...

Need some time to make it right
Please
5. Songs for No One (7:43)
We are all turning the world...
Just disconnected light
We're learning how to fly
And falling into all the mistakes we couldn't erase
But build me a garden
By god, I will care for it

Oh, heeding the call...
We are the echo's flight
Our arms into the sky
And falling into all the mistakes we couldn't erase
But build me a garden
By god, I will care for it

So let me be enemy to the rise and the racing heart
Let me be hands to the dragging water
Grip when the current starts
Let there be joy in the journey
A lesson we learned in sound
To disconnect from the shadow
I must leave the ground

So let me be enemy to the noose and the fading will
Let me be open arms
Tell the living world i am grateful still
Let me be music then, let me be the joyful sound
I can disconnect from the shadow
I can hear it now

We reach for the longest shadow
We reach for the hidden hurt
We reach for the night
Like we are old light falling to earth
Bring stones for the welcome water
Bring me home again

There's life in a song for no one
Let me grow

We are all turning the wheel
Together we learn to see, soaring just to keep from
Falling into all of the graves we dig on the way
To land in the garden
Light soft where I buried it

So let me be enemy to the noose and the fading will
Let me be open arms
Tell the living world I am grateful still
Let me be music then, let me be the joyful sound
I can disconnect form the shadow
Hear me now

We sing to the weeping widow
We sing to the dying dirt
We sing to the day
That we are old light falling to earth
Bring stones for the welcome water
Bring me home again

There's life in a song for no one
To grow is the garden's worth
There's joy n the journey
We are old light falling to earth
Bring stones for the welcome water
Bring me home.

As we fall into softest soil

Is this one rose enough for you?
And who would tend to a garden that no one sees? For no one?

See how the sun over calm ocean sings?
This is who I am, my rose
Safe from prying eyes
This is who we are

We are all one with the world
Reconnect your light, we're leaning how to fly
And falling into all the mistakes we couldn't erase
But build me a garden
By god, I will care for it
Oh, heeding the call
We are the echo's flight
Our arms into the sky
And falling into the all the mistakes we couldn't erase
But build me a garden
By god, I will turn the world

We can turn the world
Old light falls
Old light falls
We are all
6. Capulet (3:23)
Sleeper, let me stay
Bury me here in your arms
Breathing you
Leave my limbs to the lame
I'd open this wound to the world
And I would if I could

You...

If your heaven could find a place
Your world, your words
Too late
Ever human, the sleeper wakes
Your world, your words
Too late

Heal over soon
Heaven help us, here we lay
Heaven help us if we stay

Fearless, let them see
Let it be us and the void
I see you
Stand as one in the fire
Wearing this love, my honour
And I would if I could

You...

If your heaven could find a place
Your world, your words
Too late
Ever human, the sleeper wakes
Your world, your words
It's you
7. Fill My Heart (6:42)
And two of them stood
Damned with the driftwood
Fed by old fire and father's eyes
To leave the machine
No fear for that figurehead
We could have still been brothers then
I know what I said

If two of them stood
Braced for the burden
The never heard, the never learned
To strike at the heart
You dig for your brother
And concord, that coffin nail,, will set it right

Even the words as they flow out like water
Are silently begging to turn this page over
And send me home

The two of them stood
A voice across the chasm
Blaming the distance for the dark
Could I refuse? They can't see the bridge for the blackness
The spite for the start

And even the words as they flow from the fountain
Just like the sun must be missing the mountain
So give me distance, a sky without tether
But it was the chasm that brought us together
Connect...

If only I could squeeze blood from that stone
Fill my heart...
And let my cup with this peace overflow
Fill my heart...

Brother, send me home
Reach through this fire
Let the blood send me home

Home...

And even the words as they flow from the fountain
Just like the sun must be missing the mountain
So give me distance, a sky without tether
But it was the chasm that brought us together
8. Inertia and the Weapon of the Wall (2:57)
"But the writing is on the wall!"
Cried the fresh cut to the old wound, still bleeding
As if he didn't know
As if he hadn't done his fair share of reading
Like he'd never felt the flames of revolution
The young man's simple solution
Peter out time and time again
Like he never spotted revolution's hole before the end

And the writing on the wall? that impotent echo of inertia unmasked
The writing on the wall that really matters
Is in the Jewish quarter under bulletproof glass
It holds a lost family's past the top
Will fight to be forgotten
This whole fucking city's rotten to the core

But it's you, and it's me
It's the woman, heavy with child
Screaming "please!" from the doorway
She clutches her belly as triage sets in
When the night street sweeper
Lets her choose which one of her children...
It's the jacked up jackboot, with his foot
On the neck of the pale girl, the frail girl
Dimming the light in the only eyes bright enough
To see a pattern through the cracks
This lonely boy, chewed up and swallowed
By streets, spit, famine, and rats
It's the words of the last librarian,
The only man among us
With enough courage and true grit
To save our knowledge from the fires we lit
When he burst, arms full, from the blaze
One proud voice in the panic,
He called out:
"Son, if you're going to cry, then cry havoc!"
It's the neighbourhood pill pusher, a family man
It's our weakness, it's our strength

We are the very fingertips of life's outstretched hand

But you'll find no spark in the sandstone dark
Because what the holy men won't preach
Is that the one thing that unites us
Is reach

We reach forward

And there aren't enough songs in the world
Not enough words in my tongue, nor enough breath in my lungs
There is no echo that has lasted so long
No shadow that has stretched so far as we

We reach forward

And it's safe hands back down the line
In the endless chain
Not lost, never lost, when the strength
That we gained from their giving remains
We reach for the echo

We reach forward

For the moment between waking and sleep
For the sum not some of us
Together we leap
And yet we eat enough stone
That hard hearts hide a home
Under promise, understanding
Under children's skin and bone

And the writing on the wall you love
Was hand-penned by the censor
So spit in the cannon's mouth
And tell 'em ink sent ya!
9. The Cannon's Mouth (5:56)
I had all the pieces that I needed
Saw the places in between
You taught me to breathe it all in

And i stood waiting in your welcome shadow
With nothing but the dark below you
I could believe you were light
Into me

And you were the mortar underneath the keystone
Heir to all who could not breathe
You showed them the love in the lie

But I saw the tragedy of life that lingers
Slipping through the city's fingers
Brother, I waited too long
Into me

Into my waiting arms
Promise to meet me there
Help me to find the start
Help me to fill my heart
Into my waiting arms
Building the dream we shared
If I could find the start
If I could fill my heart

Higher, stone by stone
Hollow hope, empty home
Don't look down, boy
We must be the ones
Ashes by us, and it's done
It's your choice, saint or the best, boy

So give me the lightness of a life with no hope
The sight and sound as one, this new home
Tell me that you hear it too
Into me
I could see the end in each beginning
See enough to make the world sing
We heard the music in you
Into me

Into my waiting arms
Promise to meet me there
Help me to find the start
Help me to fill my heart
Into my waiting arms
Building the dream we shared
If I could find the start
If I could fill my heart

You have the choice, saint or the beast
Prove you can be force fed war and spit peace
10. Graves (15:31)
I. Faint Heart
Faint heart
World can wait for the weary hands to learn it's too late
But I'm spit and I'm rough dirt
What do you want from me?
Faint heart
Tip of my tongue
A song like youth: wasted on the young
And it's over and over
What kind of father could I be?

Faint heart
Rain to the spark
At last my light, giving in to dark
And the thought of it crumbling to dust - no, I was not done
Faint heart
I beg she won't see the coward, the cur, maybe this is me
These hands shaped stone
But I'm scared like you wouldn't believe

Faint heart
Only a glimpse
I was wrong, take it back, just let this one live

Then it hits me like ice to the bone
What if I'm just like him?
Good god
Give me the strength that I need not to be
To fight, not to flee
Or succumb to the beast underneath
What if he's just like me? naked in the wild
All was reconciled
When I held my child

II. A Few Peaceful Years
Quiet mind
Peace... Reach...
Quiet mind Be at peace... Reach...

We are the fire that whispers our mother's words
Help me, love, help me to finish it
We are the soil that joy gave form
We are the dream, and these are my father's hands
Help me, love, help me to finish it
We are the soil that joy gave form

III. The Boy and the Broken Wheel
Rising waves cry "he'll go first..."
He'll go first
(You know it al all that's left of your dream) [You know that it is true]
Is all this nothing to you?
[Hope sings to the dust of you]
Fear...
(What if they were right?)
[He was always the better]
He was always the better
[The thief who shapes the world.]
The thief who shapes the images you dreamed
[Dreamed for nothing]
All unfinished dreams...
For nothing
(The images you dreamed were for nothing...)
(Take back what's yours, don't keep me waiting)
[Take back what's yours, don't keep me waiting]
Just take back what's yours, don't keep me waiting
No more hope, broken pieces in your hands
[In your weary hands]
Waves rushing in
I'm waiting
I wait

He sees me
Waves receding
The child, healing my hurt, one day at a time
I'd feared it
Just like me
The child, healing my hurt, one day at a time
Storm's distant
I'm still closer than ever
I'm healing my hurt
One day I'll repay this kindness
Oh, he sees me Whole

Her voice is telling me
To breathe and let it be, the lion
Heed my words

The man arise from earth
The life the lie is worth, the liar
Heed my words, you'll go first

The wound that would not heal
The boy, the broken wheel, the lion
Heed my hurt

The wind that whips the waves
The spit, the second grave, the liar
Heed my hurt, you'll go first

We are the fire that whispers our mother's words
Help me, love, help me to finish it
We are the soil that joy gave form
We are the dream, and these are my father's hands
Help me, love, help me to finish it
We are the soil that joy gave form

Waves receding, and faith is fading like the sun
The work left undone

IV. Hands Shape Stone
Greed brought us here
Soon, blood to soil

Now that has been taken from me
Tell me it was all for nothing
Alright
Play the part, the eyes, the witness
That I can touch you deep, can you feel this?
Alright

Breathe and let it be

Carving out the world that you stole
Bite down on it, dig a new hole
O hands
I beg you, break stone beneath me
Knowing that she won't forgive me
Not this time, not again
But she married my anger too

And what am I to stay to my son now?
My work undone...
Hands shape stone
Reconcile
