Track Name: This Could Be
This Could Be

Who knows?

This could be the one...

Words by Mercy Howls
Track Name: Not To Wait
Not To Wait

Got my baby by my side,
driving up to the lake.
All our troubles left behind,
the moment's ours to take.
On the water, a waning quarter
moon, it casts a shine.
Wonder what's been calling us
from beneath the surface line...

And the night, it reached into our hearts,
throwing open the gates,
tore the storybook apart,
told us not to wait...

Time is not so real now
in the silence at hand,
our eyes can see so clear now
in this nocturnal land.
All forgiven for all the living
truth we had denied,
never lost our way at all
for all the times we tried...

And the night, it reached into our hearts,
throwing open the gates,
tore the storybook apart,
told us not to wait...

Could it really be so
easy to walk away?
It never really seemed so
in the broken light of day.
Now, absolution, and resolution,
I know we got the right
to forget about our crawling
and return to perfect flight...

And the night, it reached into our hearts,
throwing open the gates,
tore the storybook apart,
told us not to wait...
told us not to wait...
told us not to wait...

Track Name: The Shepherd
The Shepherd

We know her to be the shepherd
of our old, blind, broken-hearted flock.
We know her to be the shepherd
as our souls wind slowly 'round the clock.
We know her to be the shepherd
and we follow wherever she may roam.
We know her to be the shepherd
and she leads us so far from our home.

She's keeping the spark up,
a light upon us.
She knows that we can't see
in the dark.

We know her to be the shepherd
and the passion never leaves her eyes.
We know her to be the shepherd
and the spirits of the ancient ones will rise.
We know her to be the shepherd
as blue skies surrender to the night.
We know her to be the shepherd
and we know everything will be alright.

She's keeping the spark up,
a light upon us.
She knows that we can't see
in the dark.

We know her to be the shepherd
and we sleep in a peace that she bestows.
We know her to be the shepherd
and our dreams speak of what she and she alone knows.
We know her to be the shepherd...
We know her to be the shepherd...
We know her to be the shepherd...
We know her to be the shepherd...

Track Name: Touchstone
Touchstone

Now don't get no funny ideas,
you better stay right where you are.
You know you spent too many years
always running too far.
Just let your tailbone slip
into the Earth below.
Now let a little blood drip,
there's no better seed you can sow.

And on a scented wave come the song,
a blend of rose and lavender so strong...

Don't be so scared of the stillness,
though nothing's perfect, nothing's wrong.
And your story's just an illness
you been nursing too long.
Now it's time to say what's true,
it's time for the whitest of lies,
cause nothing else will do
when you've lost your best disguise.

Let the comfort take hold
of your scattered, crazed soul,
and when the sun swings low,
get your touchstone back home.

You know I'd hold your hand
if I thought you couldn't go it alone,
but I can see how you stand,
yes I can see how you've grown.
This conversation is over.
It's all been said and done,
and all these voices will lower
until you only hear one.

Let the comfort take hold
of your scattered, crazed soul,
and when the sun swings low,
get your touchstone back home.

Track Name: The Lone Twin
The Lone Twin

In the morning,
in the sunshine,
I stand alone and cry.
I think of you,
wonder where you are,
underneath the morning star.

I can't remember
what words we spoke
back before the cradle broke.
But I still recall...
Our mind was one,
shining brighter than this sun...
Shining brighter than this sun.

We're still together,
after all this time,
in a darkness so sublime.
We're still together,
somewhere deep inside,
where the planets all collide...
Where the planets all collide.

Track Name: All Alone
All Alone

You say,
"Come to me...
Can't you see I'm so cold?
Don't want to feel all alone... Feel alone.
And if you stay near,
I'll hold you so close.
Don't want to feel all alone... Feel alone.

We got the soul here,
you don't have to go.
Don't want to feel all alone... Feel alone.
And time's just a tear
falling to the floor
when you feel all alone... Feel alone."

I'm dreaming of a time when we'll know
how it feels to always be whole.
I'm dreaming of a time when we'll know
how it feels to always be home.

And now you see,
and now you know
you'll never be all alone... Be alone.
My heart it cheers,
"The search is over!"
We'll never be all alone... Be alone.

Words by Mercy Howls
Track Name: The Voice
The Voice

A drunken god is calling
from the center of your mind,
and the words are just like gem stones,
they promise all you want to find.
Nothing less than a kingdom,
if you can just believe it's real,
if you can trust what your heart knows
and what you feel...

Why waste the day
on violence and sorrow
when Love paves a way,
invites you to follow, to follow?

It'll come to you in moonlight
and in the hot shine of the sun.
If you wait for someone wiser...
Ain't gonna find anyone.
It can be so very soft now,
just like a whisper in your ear,
but when you're running 'round so headstrong,
you'll never hear.

Why waste the day
on violence and sorrow
when Love paves a way,
invites you to follow, to follow?

When you listen for the future,
you're listening to fear.
But when you listen to your soul song,
you're right here.

Why waste the day
on violence and sorrow
when Love paves a way,
invites you to follow?
Why waste the day
on violence and sorrow
when Love paves a way,
invites you to follow, to follow?

Track Name: Brother-In-Flames
Brother-In-Flames

I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
Just like my brother before me,
I'll show you all I've found.
I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.

I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
I turned my back on heaven,
I'm taking off this crown.
I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.

I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
Been to the top of the mountain
where there ain't hardly a sound,
but I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.
I'm gonna give it up...
I'm going down.

Track Name: Hollow Out
Hollow Out

That girl is going nowhere,
she hit the road today.
She stuck her thumb in the cold air,
she's smiling all the way.
Don't tell her that I want her
to turn around and stay.
I couldn't put that upon her,
I couldn't even say...

Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow me out those feelings.

"Can't belong to you.
I can't belong to you."
She sings in minor blue,
"Can't belong to you."

Out in the fields it was muddy,
we keeping close to the ground.
Out in the streets with no money,
we learned to take what we found.
Now we're on different pages,
though there's a running theme.
We've known each other for ages
along a running stream.

Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow me out those feelings.

Ain't looking over her shoulder,
she's moving down her path.
No, nothing ever could hold her...
So should I cry or laugh?
You know I'll always remember
all the lives we've had.
Well some were glowing embers,
and some were burning mad.

Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow me out those feelings.

"All I want is you.
All that I want is you."
I sing my tired blues,
"All I want is you."

Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow out all these feelings.
Hollow me out those feelings.
