Teacher, Teacher What do you see? Do you see the future The American Dream Preacher, Preacher What do you need? It’s a cold dark day To play make believe Where do we start When even the stars seem to be falling Apart Time is calling us home Seekers, Seekers What do you say? When the truth that’s hiding within you wakes Creatures, Creatures What do you say? Well, the world’s in trouble And it’s not ok Where do we start When even the stars seem to be falling Apart Time is calling us home Where do we start When even the stars seem to be falling Apart Time is calling us home

Savage eyes Chock full of dust Trapped by the weight of our own mistrust When men of power Choke on greed and lust It’s Dangerous Shotguns ringin’ out far too loud Maniacs shoutin’ lies at the crowd Fear divides an abiding trust It’s Dangerous Them and Us Them and Us It’s Dangerous Them and Us Them and Us It’s Dangerous Shotguns ringin’ out far too loud Maniacs shoutin’ lies at the crowd Fear divides an abiding trust It’s Dangerous Them and Us Them and Us It’s Dangerous Them and Us Them and Us It’s Dangerous Hostility and mounting rage Oh, the hideous things a heart can crave Let the deep dark sea roll over me ‘Til I’m safe Them and Us Them and Us It’s Dangerous Savage eyes Chock full of dust Trapped by the weight of our own mistrust When men of power Choke on greed and lust It’s Dangerous Them and Us Them and Us It’s Dangerous

Can you hold me by the light still Where everything is borrowed The blue light of your eyes still Trickles through the hollow If anything is holy It is the pain we harbor Woven into starlight Given Never Offered If you’re feelin’ lonely Set your heart upon the fire Bitterness of mind will Only make you tired It’s definitely more than A human heart can handle Take my hand and climb out The river never stands still Can you hold me by the light still Everything is borrowed The blue light of your eyes still Trickles through the hollow

Trace the feeling Unspoken Still reeling in the twilight Kiss the haze Mouths open Society chokin’ Stilled between The bite and the blade The sky is turnin’ to a Black Ash Cloud Deceitful clowns keep pullin’ us all down Watchdogs barking Time to acknowledge The road to madness is shorter than the sound Convulsions The spiral has opened Only we can choose a higher ground Is what we’ve paid already enough Has the time arrived where we can know love On your hands there may be blood The rain keeps fallin’ The flowers keep growing So at least for now We have escaped In a single moment that can change All things come and go just the same ‘Cause the sky is turnin’ to a Black Ash Cloud All in time will crumble down

Gamblin’ men are chokin’ on the score While the snakes are talkin’ grace Slithering in corn They all wish they had Just a little bit more Love’s the only thing worth fightin’ for And there’s no use in hidin’ They ain’t cryin’ They ain’t cryin’ Ramblin’ men keep lookin’ for a home I’ll sell you dreams of silk and chrome Soaked in heart Soaked in flesh and bone Love’s the only thing worth fightin’ for There’s no use in hidin’ They ain’t cryin’ They ain’t cryin’ Come Come rest your head How weary you are Come out of the shade Into the stars Don’t hide away It ain’t worth livin’ If it ain’t worth dyin’ for They ain’t cryin’ They ain’t cryin’

Black as the night You’re holdin’ me tight And I’m burnin’ up The moon’s just right The rose drips white I’m ready for your love Feelin’ my way down Feelin’ my way down Crush me with your touch Feelin’ my way down Feelin’ my way down The way you fill me up Inside I’m churning I can’t seem to turn this Yearning around Come in a little closer I’d like to get to know you Let’s get lost and found Feelin’ my way down Feelin’ my way down Crush me with your touch Feelin’ my way down Feelin’ my way down The way you fill me up In love we trust There’s room enough For hearts to come undone The moon’s just right Rose drips White I’m ready for your love Love In Love We Trust In Love We Trust Black as the night You’re holdin’ me tight And I’m burnin’ up The moon’s just right The rose drips white I’m ready for your love In Love We Trust In Love We Trust

I’m a folding petal In your wind-torn stare We uncover what’s been hiding As the mysteries speak In riddles of air Through the ecstasy of silence In the golden meadow I see you there And the beauty of it Blinds me Floods rising inside A soaring eagle glides While the raging river cries free Oh, can it be We tend to lie To deceive Oh, can it be We’re just another page In history Broken billows roar Stretched upon the shore May what we cherish perish pain Let the hot tears pour Let them run into your core That’s your soul becoming rain

Wild Dream 03:41
Reject the pain that calls you away No peace of mind will make you a slave Reflections morph and Hide and rearrange As I watch the leaves cast shadows on your face Oh, in my wildest dream It’s never what it seems It’s never what it seems Oh, in my wildest dream It’s never what it seems It’s never what it seems In my wildest dream Reflections morph and rearrange I watch the leaves cast Shadows on your face Strangers gathering On muddy broken streets Singing songs of life Singing songs of peace Oh, in my wildest dream It’s never what it seems It’s never what it seems Oh, in my wildest dreams It’s never what it seems It’s never what it seems In my wildest dream
13.
Dig your heels into the ground This ain’t no time for lyin’ down Rise Up No time to frown or slink away Yeah Yeah The dark is quickly gaining ground We’ve gotta turn this thing around Rise up No time to hide Or run away Love until your eyes burn bright Love will set you free I’ll never fear you You have no power over me You have no power over me The hour’s come The lines are drawn Hope we will survive the dawn Fear not The wicked always have their day Yeah Yeah I will stand and challenge you Lies cannot infect the truth of love Free your mind and dance Dance to the grave Love until your eyes burn bright Love will set you free I’ll never fear you You have no power over me You have no power over me Live for today Or blow away Love until your eyes burn bright Love will set you free I’ll never fear you You have no power over me Did you think you’d have control Over my body Mind and soul Wake up Wake up Live for today Or blow away
