Album Notes
As if to let it speak for itself...:

Absence of a Master's Hand: Could this be the end in sight - Cry for a turnaround day and night yet here be the point of no return - Cannot rest a soul here for very not from here - To fly out of reach in the blink of an eye - On the eve of a black hole dawn - Setting August last sun long - In an ever-more dispersing city on the plane of gray - On the brink of perpetual dismay - Each does stand alone yet so crowded to the bone - The last hint of all grace to be forgotten - And the same places are not really the same places anymore - And the same people are not really the same people anymore - And some of the living are much harder to get through to than the dead - Decades are as other worlds, How can one go home - What would it take to put time back on our side - You never ask me why - If you knew what I knew, Why betcha - You would surely - As the century unwind - Rule of the unkind - Delusion is nigh - And the wicked hand will rive - All around gone blind - And the wishing well run dry - Turn my head to the sky - Yet something above has died - And here I can't hide -
Legions of the world, what have they wrought? - As the wonders of the world rot as the mold on the rye - For wonder wasn't in them, it only came through their treasures - Turned into grossness in the blink of eye - As in a moment ring of the gong - Consumed by terror all night long - In an ever-more possessing snare of hallow crumbling frame - The property becomes their master all the same - And when the magic is gone - Only noise without a song - Strangled by the weight of their means, the power of wrong - I was there the day when the heavens came to say - Here we are, come ye here, come this way, away - Seven dimensions beckoning on the threshold of awakening - What fools set their hearts upon those transitory ways

Shadows Over Epiphany: Here I lay my head to the ground - The world closing in all around - Inside the scream without a sound - And the mystery remains - The stale bread that they have for sale - Could never satisfy my hunger for knowing - You say that You love me now - You can hear the words that have never been said aloud - If I never said a word in return - Would You remember me the morning after - If I were to give into what we're told - I know I'd be unable to live with what I have left behind - What might have been has happened - The shadow remain in the mind - And the mystery remains - For today on could not cover the pain - I really need to know that You knew me yesterday - At the stroke of each heartbeat - Another piece of my soul that I just can't keep - It seems I've just gone past that portal of light where two separate decades meet - I've seen that glimmering door right ou'of the corner of my eye - One look straight on and then it was gone - With each new passing day my roots are drifting further and further away - On down that road forever long - Transcendently linked to certain strangers I meet - Another great bright star just out of reach - And for that moment I feel that part of them which is inside of me - I've seen that glowing cord right ou'of the corner of my eye - One look straight on and then it was gone - With each new passing day my world is drifting further and further away - Carry my load forever on - Let the shadow fall - Heaven hear my call - Hear the words that have never been said - As I walk through the shadow of the living dead - The morning after is now

Norahc's Lullaby, 4th movement: Nightly vision of a foggy port - Ferrylady in gray arrive beckoning forward - The apparition that followed me home did step on board - The ferrylady looked me in the eye and said those very words - Of this I'm sure - I was so ready to do it - Just like the Wizard of Menton - Lechti cumi come forth - As in days of yore - Miraculous mayhem strike me - From the brow of my head to the tip of my finger - And she said - This is a matter of life and death - Do you really have what it takes to turn it upside down - I was so ready to turn it upside down - Few would dare to believe - Even fewer would dare to try - To do what's never been done - In these modern times - If you've seen where we abide - Then you'd know the reason why - Very few are willing to make the return to the mortal form - It is not just a feeling - It is not just a memory - I have a new friend even though I never knew him in life - The window's reopening - This is for real - And now I stand here to show - Here I am, touched by the stone - And the wind that carried him home - Never do we stand alone - Surely do I believe - More surely do I testify - If you would dare to gaze straight into my eye - Tickled by the undertow - Caught his presence on the way - From river to the shore and then to the sky - The day that it ends is so much greater than the day it begins - And here on this side most won't see what this mystery means - I know that he is still here - Still here on the third year - Seen him standing there beside me as though in a mirror - I could not deny it if I would - He is still here - I've seen the ship part from the shore into the mist forever far away - Yet still right behind me he's still here

A Thing That This World Could Not Give: Everywhere to roam - Yet nowhere is home - Rain come down as the tears of the sky fill the unseen chalice of bone - Pine for fabled yesteryears - Tales never heard by human ears - The loveliness found in the tender smile - Of who we used to be - Yet perhaps never were to see - Rolling on down the dusty road as the years unfold - Waiting for someone of a kind that's never to be found again - Entropy's forbode - As the love wax cold - And silent - Nothing to romanticize - In those who'd only nemesize - Rain come down as the crystalline sky overshadowed by our daily grinds - Pine for that freedom key - The rescuer of destiny - The loveliness lost in the living shroud - None remain of the kind - The wound that time would never unwind - I have never really lived - A thing that this world could not give - May it be

As Beyond So Within: All there is to have O' lain below - Your hand to mine bearing seed of inspiration - Everywhere to go to seek to sow - Not the mounds of those seeds but the wellspring that authored them - Will be the only gratification - Still the radiance that surrounds this vessel glows with excitation - And when my eyes were blinded You took me to Your face - At the center of it all - Secret miraculous grace - Everything that's worth doing is only to show - Your hand in mine being example of Your goodness - There is nothing more precious to know - Not the objects of those dreams but the wellspring that authored them... Your love dwells on the inside (Softly scintillating call behind the eye of the mind) Standing in awe of You and all in the shadow of what we've been through on down the line - Even now, we walk on the other side (As the outgrown threads of the mortal illusion unwind) Taken by embrace - Of the cloud of sojourners afore yet here behind (Only You) In everything that is so lovely - The wind behind it even when it's gone (Only You) Guarding with a tender strong hand to each as if they were the only one (Only You) Lifting our admiration - Higher and higher in love - If we could live forever - In these shadow lands afar - Knowing who we really are - Be like swords through the heart - What a glorious transition - To love the thing we once most feared - We've seen this place before - Who would ever believe it - Gazing up across that shore - As beyond, so within - Beckoning the open door - Anticipate to see it - Soon these eyes will smile upon You - As beyond, so within - And to find the place where the living join the arrive-ed - Here and now, it could be everywhere we go, no distance in true - Tearing at the threshold of that ever-thinning membrane, it is You - I know - That is who You really are - I know, Lord I know - Nobody told me but I know

North Wind's Kiss: By the edge of sparkling stream - An ordeal not cruel as it seems - Looking on in surreal fears - Enigmatically spellbound in tears - O'er your friend you love so dear - Although just yesterday not so near - Ain't it funny how that is - Awakening inside you - Riding in the locks of glowing dark hair - Any moment run to meet you there - You never really lost him - As though it were never your weight to bear - Just another step along this journey to higher origin unaware - Won't you take a look at yourself - See how you love him now even more than you could before - Taste and begin to understand - The greatest joy behind the mask of the darkest tragedy - To be knowing the end from the dawn and all is lovely - Preparing the way - Face to face embrace beyond the veil - Who has seen the end from the dawn and all is well - You would surely laugh and smile - If you could experience it from your buddy's point of view - A seamless transition out of Malkuth - Gentle and fun it is a shocking truth - Ye ask just how could Love Itself do such a thing - Were it the windows of heaven pour the deluge rain - Design of moments fulfilled - Awakening inside you - Ripples like dark looking glass back at you - From blue to sweet clarity you never knew - This is - No mere memory - No mere fantasy - No mere feeling - No mere theory - No mere memory - And it's all because the earth could never hold what we truly seek - This universe can not bear what we really need - We will rise
