Track Name: As Long As There Is
As long as there is darkness, there is hope.
So said the stars as the morning broke.
And as the first rays of the sun did conspire,
Those gods of the night did lose their fire.

Why do they call you?

The faces of flowers turn and rise.
The people and places of the world come alive.
And as the sun across the earth doth roam,
We dream of other things of which we don't know.

Why do they call you?

As long as there are shadows, I'm alive.
So said the sun just as the moon did arrive.
And as the first of those same stars did explode,
The distant globe did dim and dissolve.

Why do they call you?
Track Name: Black Dove
You call me white raven, we are one love.
You call me white raven, I call you black dove.

To see beyond material things into a world where only love reigns.
To see the everlasting light. To be free of endless night.
Innocence breathes your name. We are one and one the same.
To be part of love without changing love.
To know nothing is always enough.

You call me white raven, we are one love.
You call me white raven, I call you black dove.

To see the harmony in everything. A way of truth, a path within.
To discover the words in signs. To be at peace with the eternal mind.
A universe in your name.
Part of us remains forever children of love: white raven, black dove.
Together, in visions, we run.

It's easy to break out of the line. Lord, I know it's time.
Pick up the pieces of light. Let all this healing inside.

You call me white raven, we are one love.
You call me white raven, I call you black dove.
Track Name: San Francisco
We are forever moving back to places we knew when we had time and desire for living.
San Francisco!
Hot stepping out on the boulevard. Get a bum to watch over her car.
Lean out the docks where the trawlers heave home to San Francisco calling you back to your heart.

Burnt tree on the slope of this mountain. Fire stopped right here where I'm standing!
Eyes clear as ice and the bright skin like those in San Francisco.
We follow the tracks we are finding. We speed across like lightning.
We break out to the canyon. We're living in San Francisco!

So many ways to get stung. You only need to find one.

You see. You know. You are...
San Francisco is calling you back to your heart.
You hear. You feel. You find San Francisco.

Contact the dead let them know this: that life on earth can be perfect!
Cold water shower in the morning, looking out over San Francisco.
Tomorrow, we have to move on. Time's up but, for a moment, I felt like a pioneer out here.
San Francisco is falling apart!

You see. You know. You are...
San Francisco is calling you back to your heart.
You hear. You feel. You find San Francisco.
Track Name: Lay In Your Arms
I stare across the water at the coming of the rain.
The birds sweep south beyond the river and then turn north again.
And if you let me follow, I swear I will not stare as the sun lights up your charcoal eyes and the sorrow that we share.

Can you hear my heart sing as we sway with uncertain intentions?
Can I lay in your arms?

There's a land we long for. It's written in our eyes.
Where no flags fly to keep us fearful,
And no one tells us why we're still out here searching
while others have not come.
Can we find our home in love? It's all we need. It's where we come from.

Can you hear my heart sing as we sway with uncertain intentions?
Can I lay in your arms?
Track Name: Star
Your star will fall as swiftly as it has risen.
I know I will be joyful that day.
To see you smile before you see it coming.
To see that shadow crawl across your face.

The fool that I am makes me feel I have something over you.

Your faith will fail as quickly as it did flower.
Like leaves that turn from green to gold to dust.
And soon another name will be considered.
And soon another face will fade and crack.

The fool that I am makes me feel I have something over you.

Your star will fall over you.
Over you, I am.
Track Name: Old Glory
Could I occupy your mind for a second of your time?
Lord, I need receiving.
Whenever she's away I fall apart, I go astray.
Lord, I need your healing.

Some might laugh at my simple faith, but I just can't deny it.
I'm the spiritual kind. I try to live my life on the path to old glory.
I will wait for the time for old glory to shine.

Could I shelter in your grace? I am so weary of this race.
Lord, I need revival.
There's a storm raging outside of me and a hurricane inside of me.
Lord, I seek delivery.

I'm the spiritual kind. I try to live my life on the path to old glory.
I will wait for the time for old glory to shine.
Track Name: To Never Have Known
Mother, I used to be humble and glad for what I had.
Look what they've done to me. Look what I've let myself be.
We used to go down to the woodland just to watch the bluebells grow.
Now I walk these hard roads. I try to sift the lies from Lord knows.

To never have known these things.

Father, have I let you down? Did I ever make you feel proud?
I've come so far alone. Now I see I was never on my own.
We used to lay down by the river just to watch the water flow.
Now I'm just lost in the city of gold trying to find someone, somewhere to hold.

To never have known these things.
Track Name: Strike Me Blind
Strike me blind, so I can no longer see stones in the eyes of man.
And if I cry, let my tears turn to blood and the salt stain the love I try to hide.
I can't understand how this world goes around restraining the Abel, sustaining the Cain.
Strike me blind, so I can no longer see stones in the eyes of man.

Give me sight, so I can tell them when they come just what we have done and to where you have gone.
And if I lie, let my tongue forever be tied and their senses alive to falsehood and compromise.
Give me sight, so I can no longer be alone in the darkness of man.

Let me see, let me see through the screen to the other land where no one can carve out confusions.
And if I falter let me eyes recognise the subtext behind the subjects in the context of the contest.
I can't understand how this world goes around and how this world came to be found and how this world keeps you down.
Let me see so I can no longer be blind to the visions of man.
Track Name: Standard Bearer
Standard bearer, you are the key to it.
Keep my body and my mind from the spirit.
Though I've tried to find you, I'm lost inside.
Looking back on what I've done.
Can you heal me with your holy son?

Standard bearer.

Standard bearer, finally I see the flag.
Torn and heavy but still in your hand.
Though the battle is far from a battle won,
I see the standard and I know it is far from done.
Can you see me burning with your love?

Standard bearer.

There's no crying any more.
There's no hurting any more.
Track Name: For Your Love
It's time we were gone. Can you help me belong?
Before it's too late, and we can still escape.

I have been wasting away, carrying on.
If there's nothing here for us any more we should be
gone on the road, where time has no hold.

If you might see me falling, if you might know better,
if you believe in the calling
I promise you that we're going far to find
somewhere that we can leave this life behind.
You can stay by me, stay.

I would do anything for your love.

Fortune, fortune left long ago.
But you and I always knew it would be so.
Tomorrow, tomorrow there will be sun.
And you will always have in me someone.

If you might see me falling, if you might know better,
if you believe in the calling
I promise you that we're going far to find
somewhere that we can leave this life behind.
You can stay by me, stay.

I would do anything for your love.

For your love.
Track Name: The Heart of a Soulless Man
The beauty of sun is in my eyes,
Beckoning me from the heart of a soulless man.
If I get to the door and the door is open, I have to go.
Will you come? Will you come?

The sense of it all is all innocence and in everyone.
To everyone, to everyone.
The beauty of sun is in my eyes,
Beckoning me from the heart of a soulless man.
Track Name: Do No Harm
Hope is like the water flowing down to the river
from the mountains where the forest touches the sky.
Hope is like the buzzard as it soars and dives above us.
In its eyes there is an everlasting light.

Hope is like the spirit running through us as we're living.
It connects us to another space and time.
Hope is like the wind as it brushes on my skin.
It reminds us of where everything begins.

Hope is like the ocean and the moon in their devotion
to the universe. It whispers in their hearts.
Hope is our religion. It's a faith that we've been given:
To love one another, and to do no harm.
