Track Name: Glow
Parched as paper,
Spark from the glass,
Touch the blue,
Soon I'll glow

I've been waiting,
To focus the beam,
Burn the light,
Fuel the dream,

Then there it is -
breathe in -
A hint of breaking down.
Curl up and back,
Can't stop the wave

Breath of storms to come,
Skim the white horses,
Wild eyed and uncontrolled,
Stream inland,

This will not help,
It just fans the flame
It can't be held back
It's sure to come

Stand back from me
Please let me breathe,
I'm tricked out in gold,
You must believe

Wired and waiting
To call in the debt
The line is alive
Begin the test

Now the storm is above,
It takes all in it's path...
Paper is first to tear,
and first to burn.
Track Name: Drift
Take this ache away…
Every cycle of dark and light
Won’t take the ache away
Descending with dead weight
Twisting the tendons tight
In a fistful of spiral,
Threading their course
Suppressing sensation, till there's no where to go.

Leave the lid on - it’s all screwed up,
Though it’s empty, the voice is brimful
And the phrase won’t turn - I’m speechless
And the thread’s crossed, there’s no undoing.

Diving for vacant space-
You’re the anchor of this freefall,
Almost too far gone, near the bottom and out of rope.
Tentatively I stretch,
Just to find you are still there,
Keeping a watch while I’m blazing the trail-
Holding on to me.

My soft landing the feather bed,
The sandbar in the riverbed.
You eroding the roughest edges,
Finding bedrock in deepest pools.

Soothe this ache away
Cool the pain away
Feeling will fade away
Let me drift to you.
