Track Name: Mental Geometry
Born from the stardust I know,
I mean nothing to the world,
Neurons fire electric need and mental geometry screams.

Shapes shift,
Worlds collide,
Dying for one look inside,
Into something,
Worth my while,
Nothing matters - I don't care.

Don't take me (Shape shifting circle seeking)
Fear for free ,
Let me go (Where can I go?)
Let me stay!
And human fear betrays me,
I'm mocked again.

Mental geometric rights,
Cauterize my will,
To survive, to fight, to care, to love,
And I am nothing now.

Don't take me (Shape shifting circle seeking)
Fear for free ,
Let me go (Where can I go?)
Let me stay!
Don't take me (Shape shifting circle seeking)
Fear for free ,
Let me go (Where can I go?)
Let me stay!
And human fear betrays me,
I'm mocked again.

You took me somewhere I should never have been,
And it did more damage than you'll ever know (x3)
Track Name: Rut
On and round the past in replay,
Blame it on the fire - Nerves twitching,
Blame it on the silence.
Giving time to battles past,
Shutting out the good - Need violence,
Blame it on the silence.

When the only way through has to be you,
And the bargains made for the dance to portray,
So be gone tomorrow to taste your last pill,
If uncertainties your ghost's biggest fear.

Forced along a hostile shore,
Play the piper - Go!
Still rolling,
Blame it on the silence.

So be sure to go with your sane policy,
Prosperity mirrors your last key,
For a life desired, in youth polished dreams,
Send the prophets here,
For you.

You stand in the light and you'll be lost in your disease,
You know of the fortunes of men screaming in the breeze,
Fate stands on the rafters of time, hold the sickle high,
Left for the harbour on your last shred of pride.

Left for the train I'm finding nothing left for me,
Just waiting,
Waiting for the silence,
I'm still waiting,
Waiting for an answer......
Track Name: Invincible
Waste to the pavement,
Claim haste this assailant,
By mildew, to foolproof, and shatter a lie.

Shine on invincible,
Cry little - cry little,
Yours to devour, you wait in the portrait.

Mine is the time,
Is the time would I wait,
For no played the player,
You laugh at me why?
Seizure of the highest,
Freezing up inside,

Laughing and laughing, the laughing and why?
Trying to be, what you'll never be why?

So run for the dark,
Shed a tear in the dark,
In the tree lined cloud pavement,
Shed sparks white electric.

Electric electric,
The crowd tear defences,
down from you, inspired by,
The chemical feed.

If you see a tear,
I'm inclined for to fear,
That you'll know me, you'll know me,
We can't warrant that,
Humanities weakness,
Plays foul on this tile,

Exposure, fragilities mark on the hide,
Hide nothing, yet something, I know I must lie.

Remember remember the veins in the leaf,
And the weevil that wears down, the blood for to seem.
Laughing and laughing, the laughing and why,
Trying to be what you'll never be, why?
Remember, remember defenses today.
Do not see me cry now. You must see a smile.
Track Name: Best Friend
Take from me a picture take my story take my silence,
Give to me my shackles give me glory give me pain,
Wait for me a moment listen to me, listen to me,
There’s a silent echo with my rubies cast in flame.

You take my sanctuary take my life take my love
You take my sanctuary take my life take my love
Be here for me and listen, harbour secrets never tell,
My friend so sweet you bleed for me in bloodlust mirth you smile

See the eyes of a stormy night a stormy life a stormy soul
See the blood upon the hands that shackle smiles to guilt
You need peace and you need pain to taste your daily bread
Do you feel much better now? So tell me why you hate?

Glitter in the light of night and glitter ruby red
The blade of innocence returns a smile – Hide in grey
Fading in the noon day sun the sweet smell of decay
That rises in the chill of night – that eats your soul away

This moment of solitude so sweet returns today
See the reasons etched upon my face – etched in grey
I love you my friend my love my counsel my sweet foe,
Be here with me, you and I alone let me tell my tale.

Alone, alive inside I’ll not survive your love this time,
Paper cuts and cat claw lust you hide behind your smile,
Someone dares, and no one cares and something cannot tell,
In ignorance they laugh and laugh and they can’t understand
You can’t understand.

(This moment she knows from past experience is an intimate one)
Take from me my love, take my shame, take my pain,
(This moment she knows from past experience is an intimate one)
You are my love, you are my shame, you are my pain,
(This moment she knows from past experience is an intimate one)
You give me life I am your slave – You are my drug,
Sweetest friend, bitter red, will this ever end?
Track Name: The Backward Path
Treading a backward path to the future,
Whilst roses turn ugly,
In sweet justification, buy friends with daggers,
Tones of irritation ring batons about my ears,
Somewhat unhinged in the candid facts emerging.

Shrouded in ignorance at your own misdoing,
Who has the balls to tell it to your face?
Forced back into the guillotine hands of children,
How I need someones wavelength, twisting sights to zero,
Feeling somewhat unhinged in this fore shadow of dread.

Double dealing meisters of the highest degree,
Shake their posies of crows black nailed,
Oiled with a cry.
Of jubilation resonant in blood on my pride,
The fools costume - I threw out, preferred to forget.

Patterns of succession played proud in my head,
From batten to thorn led, to green laden canopy,
Where I carved my dreaming, built my wooden wall,
Cruel forester clear fell - I greet you first square.

Treading a backward path to the future,
Predicting what's coming.
Greet old faces and visit old haunts I hated,
Welcoming me back with goading arms and callous smiles,
Reverential love for this cruel bargain they are dealing.

Oh fate you have stripped me of all I held dear,
My allies left behind my granite pillar holds new hands,
All the footsteps of four years rewind back to here,
On the threshold of a chance to redesign my life.

Today I paid a visit to my old friend,
She keeps herself hidden and few know of her,
She never did too much for my strength of will,
I never believed that I'd see her again,
Never believed that I'd need her again.
Track Name: Eternal Hour
Endless hour,
Tick tock locking clock, Smiling venom,
Tick tock seconds dock.

Tap on the table, pour seconds on pages,
The clock it still sticks while the night lingers on.

Endless hour,
Tick tock locking stop, kindly kick me,
Tick tock seconds dock.

Nowhere to hide in my bed or in mind,
Taking the path stepping further inside,

In gravity in gathering - fury of the phoenix, diversion alone,
My clarity, my liturgy, my tendancy for fantasy,
And the past presses play.

Eternal hour,
Tick tock locking clock, bleed the hours,
Tick tock seconds dock,

Nothing to say in the poem I play,
Knock on the door and I’ll tell you my name,

And I know the paths well - find a trail of old blood and follow your head,
Garnet to carnelian strung up in steel – So pretty draped upon your wrist,

Above, so below, lay this crazy paving,
A delegation from another plane.

Endless hours,
Tick tock, locking stop, feel the fever,
Tick tock locking stop.

Horses hide hamstrings in consequents loss,
Meeting with Macha we draw swords in war,
Taking the time for to take in inside,
Meeting with Macha give into the call

And I know the paths well, find a trail of old blood and follow your head,
Garnet to carnelian strung up in steel, so pretty draped upon your wrist,

Above so below, lay this crazy paving,
My tendency plays a sad liturgy,
So curs'ed are we as we nod and agree,
And the past presses play.
Track Name: The Bluebell Wood
Bluebell, garlic,
Oxlip, parsley,
Hoverfly and speckled wood,
Lead me to the silver birch,
Roll and coil through twists of crime,
Coil and breathe about my feet,
Bluebell crawling- seethe in green.

Tears are melting in the earth,
I have given you myself,
Nature my mistress of pain,
Why did you forsake my name,

Why'd you take it all away?

Running holly, brambles snag feet,
Horses, blackthorn - Fly blown,
Lead me to the clearest source,
Render please these rocks to crumble,
Nitrogen about my feet,
Phosphorate these roots to feel,
Flesh and bone as mind is one,
Tears and mem'ries, scoured flesh,

What exactly's wanted here?
I've analysed each waking dream,
Mistress of this torture game,
Why did you forsake my place?

Why did you forsake my name?

Interactions, ev'ry thought,
I've analysed and picked apart,
Lead me from this scratching match,
Hands are cut upon the bark,
Clutch for threads in fissures deep,
Cracks that marr these making dreams,
Why'd you lead me back to here?
Tell me what you want from me?

Glaciers leave this tired scree,
Carved in hollows whilst we scream,
Clawing wildly at our cage,
Blood is melting in the earth,
Why did you forget my plea?
Tears are drowning all the earth,
Wet rot crumbles stone to soil,
Trees will fall and grasses burn,
Gorse lit fire holds hostage hands,

Why did you forsake my place?
Why did you forsake my name?
Track Name: In the Tide
Spread out the cards on the table unstable,
In sweet perjury you recline in the hiding,
That you're only human,
And you need someone.

When pointing the finger, go fire sensation,
And all of the while on this apple you choke,
Deluded and dreaming,
As bee's swarm by the ceiling.

How long will I, have to wonder?
And quietly embrace the tide,
So quietly I'll face the tide.

Keep telling yourself that you're loving the freedom,
Keep telling yourself there's no good in the sharing,
Of life and feeling,
Of flesh and cohesion.

And the balloon ever swells close to bursting,
The mask it recedes - Go hide or they'll see!
Whilst the barricades are up,
Hide whilst the barricades are up,
Before the barricades are torn down.

How long will I, have to wonder?
And I know it well enough,
Oh yes I know it well enough,

Lost in the tide, you're last in the line,
And you have betrayed yourself once again,
Lost in the tide and you're last in the line,
Last in the line, in the tide, hide the crime.

How long will I, I have to wonder?
How far will I, have to wander?
Before a touch will still the fire,
And before a voice will kill the ache...

And ever.

You're no more than a contradiction in terms,
When born to the twin - it's hidden your needing,
And so closely guarded,
We all need secrets,
And no-one should know that,
You could need someone....
Track Name: Overtures of Yesterday
Overtures of yesterday support these crumbling walls,
Sweep the stage in offbeat timing,
The heron plays patience whilst the bull scores the turf,
The fly waves from the wings and the man strikes the nail.

Born of rock, by shale and clay, the only goal is for to want,
Ten steps back in disbelief, the border falls away.

Overtures of yesterday lay moss upon the brick,
Nutritional investment claims a rebate,
The soil in sods so wetly warm - Clay bleeding through my fingers,
The fly rests on the corpse, and the man plays to fail.

Breaking wave a supercilious smile on the face,
Taste the ink and wonder why it only comes in black and blue,
Following the play,
Wonder why we pray,
For your empathy today.
Dog upon the Hare,
Take me in a snare,
When you've got it you'll be gone.

Wire mesh obscures each face in which I lay my trust,
Behind the mesh i can't see clearly,
Try to tear it down it just draws blood and tears the flesh,
Shrink from them in guilt and settle for the second best.

Call yourself chordata I can't call you this today,
Prove you own your namesake - Claw your way out of the cage,
I will never rest until there's dirt behind your nails,
Let the land lay judgement, are you worthy of your name?

Following the play,
And you wonder why you pray,
For a way out of the race,
I could hold the key,
If you'll justify for me that you're worthy of your name.

Born beneath the bull, I see no proof of that today,
Bolt for easy ground not even worthy of the weasel,
Where's the dogged resolution that defines the name?
Lost to which way now your loyalties have ever lain,

You would not be bound,
To a present pain,
Or the heartache of the day,
You'd wait for me a while,
Take the chance to smile,
If it's true you serve the bull.

Overtures of yesterday lay boys upon the blame,
Patience from the presence of my meaning,
I have time to rest my mind and still put up a fight,
But is there any gain in fighting, stand alone as two.
Track Name: Felidae
Felidae, this plane of moons,
Cattus sylvestris, two in tune,
Life on the periphery - in a chosen exile,
So loose in the library, encryptions in ribbons.

Hail the spiral and she takes a hand,
Sweet familiarity - the lady,
In flashes of silver she waits by the woodpile,
Dressed to thrill and kill.

"Cat on the prowl, or a rat in a hole, what do you want to be?"
Silver speaks.
"When will you cross and greet the dogs?"

Edges fray as stories find form,
By the campfire cats will curl,
Tattoo these patterns into web of the spider,
Who nurtures her cocoon prey brethren.

Train hurtles on to the center of the web,
Who knows but she will the fabric give or hold,
In flashes of silver she waits by the woodpile,
Dressed to thrill and kill.

"Cat on the prowl, or a rat in a hole, what do you want to be?"
Silver speaks.
"When will you cross and greet the dogs?"
Silver speaks.

The cackling hyena, snarling wild dog, proud and pretty wolves,
Archetypes of contempt, hold the stare and the fox might understand,
But cats will walk alone.

Now go the worlds my own my lady, and she runs and the pack howl at her back,
The corvids come in droves, the jackdaw cackles from her shoulder dressed in black,

So wave those scarlet garlands by the night and dogs beware!
Cat claw lust in a corner, takes new ground now,
Wear the archetype - Reach for flint now,
When will the pussycat marry, and meet the wildcat?

"Cat on the prowl, or a rat in a hole, what do you want to be?"
Silver speaks.
"When will you cross and greet the dogs?"
Silver speaks,
Silver speaks,
Silver speaks.
