Track Name: No Eyes
on the way got it wrong
used to say, "better day gon' come along"
come along

dawn is dusk
dust will dune
gather eyes in the corner of your room
'round the tomb of daylight gloom


i won't ever leave you alone
though you have been gone for so long
i might die to rot by your side
knowing that we finally arrive

no eyes
they were taken from me
no eyes
afraid of what I'd see

turn on the radio, but don't touch the dial
or run down the covered road a cool country mile

you wont ever leave me alone
though you have been gone for so long
i might die to rot by your side
knowing that we finally arrive
Track Name: Dark Devotion
visions of dead and dying

in the drunk
heavenly morning
we become young once again

with emotion
ditch the dumb, dark devotion

in the sunlight
so golden
we become born forgiven
Track Name: Grey Morning Gate
i came from the dark place
making for her grey morning gates

came to life when you came to my mind
came to life when you came to mind

striking from the dark place
waking with sunken face
drunken, drinking water from the vase

striking from the dark place
Track Name: Rewarding
don't want a no
don't want a maybe-so
yes is the only word i'm hearing

dreaming you float
flying when you feel low
buying into the present feeling

take a walk again
file a while that will remain

yeah, one that feels good

give into wind
find ways to love again
lie by the willow in the dawning

dreaming you're home
leaving when you must go
grieving some evenings into nothing
healing each time you see your family

take a walk again
all the while it will remain

yeah, don't it feel good?

you could never fool your heart
couldn't if ya tried
I will never fake a love
make it in the mind

how do we begin again
after all this time?
I could never break from I
leave it all behind
