Track Name: Between Two Worlds
between two worlds
I must choose
one or other
of the two
in the middle
cannot stay
a departure is the way

and in each world
there will form
a new promise
yet unknown
decide I must
on my own
which will shatter
which shall flow

between two worlds we will meet
not because we want everything
but because you're facing one way
and I'm floating towards a watery dream
Track Name: K A T L A
while I wait for you
clouds cast, tears fall
bloom wilts with fading words
nothing lasts, nothing but this
dust myth mist kiss

we happened to be two lonely thoughts
spread out far in the deep sea vast
nothing to do, just floating there
nowhere to escape to from our constant despair
in waking to a still white fog
I sink into the lonesome drift

grey
white
blue

a wistful shell around my heart
a mountain masked in a heavy fog
but nothing ever stays the same
and our thoughts begin to drift
Track Name: Always Beginning II
how can my distant embrace be enough to remain near?
I am a shadow inside a storm tinted heart
and so I tell myself that
everything is always a new beginning
where we can take all of ourselves
into a new heart
and I step into a room of my own
alone there, waiting for the sound to fall again

everything is always a new beginning
we start listening slowly
only to drift off again
so I cannot take claim for who I was yesterday
because now that I'm flowing
there's no way of knowing who I am now,
I am beginning
Track Name: Oblique Truth
I should have known
that you're eyes would pull me down
you have become a symbol to me
an idea, you belong to me

I've tried to communicate
but it's obscured, I hesitate
and your scintillating veils remain

I'm contemplating what it means
to create from these feelings rather than to state
but your soft words return en fleur
and what my mind may see is waxed in truth

and I am taken in
by the scenes I've painted
blue with languor, a new descent

this prismatic world remains hidden
and I should have known
by your voice shell rose
Track Name: H E K L A
uncertain I'm still in a dream
open my eyes to the night
hoping to find my breath
in the dark

emptiness carried my thoughts
to a lonesome place where I could grow
I hide it all shaping a stone,
the fire recurring inside
pervading smoke all around
it's here, only, where I share it
without end

persisting are words half remembered
light faintly burns in the distance
searching for some source or center
I reach out

nearer now, hoping to be
a new shape that flows differently

whisper with a passing wind
what's revealed, dreams formed within

smoke clears
light brakes

we sat with our backs to the waves all alone
and it was cold outside
and we watched the snow fall
Track Name: Into Reflections
walking through the forest
cannot find the way
trying to remember where I lost myself
look into reflections within the water below
but when the wind returns it breaks apart again

something circles over
I hide under the night
close my eyes and see the light where this all began
we came this far together
then the shadow drew you in
when I came to find you the river turned to red

the storm is dying down
upon the waters clear
the moon and I emerge
floating without end
no matter what's the distance
or if I am your friend
if the world is breaking
what is the difference?
Track Name: SLEEPER
I can see there's nothing you want to be
empty in this place, bury it away
hold dear your facade
keep it closer than love

I'm making a choice to show what's inside
there's no room for you now
say what you want to say
I won't go back to you
wanting you to just want something
why are you afraid to speak
thinking of our lack of understanding
and what it means to hide everything
I'll say goodbye so that you don't have to
Track Name: Being Shaped
am I the rock being shaped by the water
or am I the water shaping the rock?

I found out for myself
what never could be told
in all of the times I've fallen down
I carry on my own

finding the way to open up, face it
shedding the thorns that were planted inside

waking, I forget
the waters in which I slept
remembered is not the form I held
but the dream of what is to come yet

I am choosing what will shape me
by what I like and how I perceive it

stones I've left unturned
the mystery for me abounds
the tied pulls back, my roots revealed
what truth remains, the words are clear:

am I the rock being shaped by the water
or am I the water shaping the rock?
Track Name: I Saw But Was Not Seen
you're always open, waiting for me
I'm here for a moment, when suddenly
I fall back behind the thin liquid sheet
and when I part the veil
I saw but was not seen

watching a wave to come crashing in
waiting, awake, for it to come back again
silver sliver shifting through the night

growing closer, going further
grown closer, growing further

all of myself, ever clearly seen
what you share and the half I do not know
hidden away, written on a secret page
your unseen self removed from all light dispells

not knowing how to be present all the time
like the white lily I'll shine
but if you look too deep, I'll close up quickly

no matter how far I go
I'll never lose my way

you're always open, waiting for me
I'm here for a moment when suddenly
I fall back behind the thin liquid sheet
and when I part the veil
I saw but was not seen
///
like the night
I fill with dreams
when you arrive
I feel fulfilled
silver sliver shifting through the night
together we're reaching through all of time
Track Name: NO ONE
when I looked outside
I saw the snow
and I remembered
where I had been
and where I was
I was alone,
alone with you
I feel the wind
but cannot see
the way it moves
between us still
and a silence slowly
forms without a question,
a need or a will
and like the wave
or mountain smoke
it gently rises
to pull me in
a covered sky

and though the words
may recede beneath us
the place remains
and who we are
is again changed
Track Name: STILL SLOW LIFE
my heart is still
the house is all asleep
another night of fleeting memories
internal landscapes arise
a countryside: escape I fantasize
a fate I can't decide
but it's greater still
just to imagine
what it might be like

burning bridges
a past left behind
horizons keep me up again
a still life, a world still turning
a slow life, but sense of fulfillment
I'm not gonna lie
that it's not greater still
just to imagine
what it might be like

a still life, a world still turning
a slow life
but sense of fulfillment
I'm not gonna lie
that it's not greater still
just to imagine
what it might be like
Track Name: HEKLA
uncertain I'm still in a dream
open my eyes to the night
hoping to find my breath
in the dark

emptiness carried my thoughts
to a lonesome place where I could grow
I hide it all shaping a stone,
the fire recurring inside
pervading smoke all around
it's here, only, where I share it
without end

persisting are words half remembered
light faintly burns in the distance
searching for some source or center
I reach out

nearer now, hoping to be
a new shape that flows differently

whisper with a passing wind
what's revealed, dreams formed within

smoke clears
light brakes

we sat with our backs to the waves all alone
and it was cold outside
and we watched the snow fall
