Track Name: The Bell
to cross from before to after
into the unknown, such a pleasure
i watched your smile slowly spread
from the center to the edge

i saw the passage same, but then
... the bell ...
it is but one gate

i held my tongue in wonder
at what lessons lay spread out ahead, ever

raise the fire on the altar and open the eye
that reflects it back inside
to the hidden paths below mind

with each step, reinvent a child at play

to cross from before to after
into the unknown, such a pleasure
i watched your smile slowly spread
from the center to the edge

i saw the passage same, but then
it is but one gate
Track Name: A Reversal
from B to A
it's backwards
the method of approach

two points
in time
one lost

it's been reversed.

time won't let it come to be
unless it turns around.
i can't force it.
how would it ever turn around?

it's been reversed.
that path has been diverted.
the start drifted past the end
so it's like it's been reversed.
Track Name: A Play For Fates
snaking wishes off the fray
it's a play for fates.
armed with an array
tools i made

at the altar, giving sway to the will that lays claim over this path, all i can say speaks in color to ears made for gray.

like a whim, i say the name.

draw
out
each
frame.

solar retrace emulates the one way to create.
snaking wishes off the fray in the sequence out laid
like a drunk at a cabaret, you may miss
how my steps
trace a great "A"
Track Name: Normal Song
it's like a stranger's in my way.
i remember how to take what i want and throw it away.
it's a daily joke i played on me.
my hands dirty for nothing, for nobody.

my mind just plays the same theme
like it's some dusted up machine.

what i want has no name.
as it crystallizes in my eyes, i play a little game
called "wait to ask until i know"
knowing that way, i wont bother until my final throes.

my mind just plays the same theme
like it's some dusted up machine.
