Plunge 03:15
we can't fight it! we can't fight it! no use now, we're moving much too fast we can't fight it! we can't fight it! hold on, 'cause there ain't no turning back so, into the falls we go to whatever waits below holding our heads up high it's a good day to die! .....i'm swimming towards a light maybe i'm alright
Visitor 03:58
come with me my weary child, cold and all alone put your little hand in mine and i will take you home i will take you home i will take you home come with me into the sky, where the watchers roam there the others wait for you let me take you home i will take you home i will take you home
Sweet Dreams 05:58
again so good to see you again i thought it might never end i sure have missed you my friend without you life has been doing me wrong all of the magic is gone all of the nights cold and long i drag my feet through every day to reach this bed of mine close my eyes and try so hard to find the way back one more time this dream always beginning anew and maybe this world isn't true but i'd rather stay here with you so many things i have wanted to say so many cold, lonely days ever since you went away i drag my feet through every day to reach this bed of mine close my eyes and try so hard to find the way back one more time take me back
Space Blues 03:44
staring through a polished glass... all the shining stars wonder could i truly grasp just how very far? empty and cold i miss my home but i am so long gone did i choose to take the trip? did the trip choose me? how much have i sacrificed for curiosity? endlessly vast aeons roll past and nothing ever lasts 'tween the lights the distance grows mystery of time loneliest of frequencies wavelength of my mind the silence roars i want no more of life behind these doors
Phantoms 01:56
NSA 05:01
and when the nighttime falls there is a light that shines and i know your secret this whole time i've been watching you and when the darkness falls i've got a secret too and i want to show you i know you'll like it i know everything that's burning in your mind and when the shadows fall i lie in wait for you come on and see for yourself i've know what you want and i've got what you need i've got everything that's burning in your mind
lyrics from: "A Poison Tree" by William Blake (1757-1827) from Songs of Innocence and Experience I was angry with my friend;  I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe;  I told it not, my wrath did grow.  And I watered it in fears, Night & morning with my tears:  And I sunned it with smiles, And with soft deceitful wiles.  And it grew both day and night.  Till it bore an apple bright.  And my foe beheld it shine, And he knew that it was mine.  And into my garden stole,  When the night had veiled the pole;  In the morning glad I see:  My foe outstretched beneath the tree.
The Fallen 05:32
all of things you hold so dear can in an instant disappear the purist ones are never spared theirs is a world so far from here the rains come down muddy the ground the years go by the fallen lay turning to clay all of the things you hold so true can make the coldest bed for you one day they leave you high and dry and in that cold cold bed you lie the winter comes beating it's drum so very slow the fallen lay beneath the snow the winter comes banging its drum outside your door your bed is cold forevermore
i have grown so weary of this troubled road lord, i'm tired of carrying this load i'm good and ready i'm ready to go crawl under a stone, lay me down, and rest these aching bones i may not ever find a light to guide me though this cold, cold, endless night but when i reach that river and pay the river man he will take me to the promised land sweet sound of a river growing in my ears lord, i know i must be getting near i'm hearing voices from up ahead beckoning to me come now child, soon you will be free oh what a struggle it has been but even the longest night must end river man i'm ready i can run no more take me over to the other shore


"That something this acid-tinged, pastoral and gothically tilted came out of Colorado’s urban centre instead of some shire in the U.K. is pretty surprising."
