Track Name: One Too Many
Stony-hearted
Dry as dust
Emaciated
Soft focus has worn us
To shadows
Try to rebuild it upon sand
Not to commit us too far
Just a gentle hint
All in all
A shift in meaning
To see the bitter end.
Track Name: This Place Of Power
Damned souls
Pearl-laden clouds
Weighed down by years
Gathering dust
Time to renounce
Withdraw this love
Once was made sacred
Lift a corner of the veil of time
Secular tears dimmed our eyes
As ties came loose
We lay face down
For the crown not to be worn again
A never-ending coronation of life.
Track Name: The Die Is Cast
Beginning is not, nor end cannot be
Shine as a flame in the midst of my body
This is the curse on you
The curse on me
Your name has been carved
In the palm of my hands
Call the name and fly away
Break that evil spell on me
Damned souls whirling ahead of our sins
Deliver us from the contents of Time
Deliver us from the contents of our body
Damned souls whirling ahead of our sins.
Track Name: Surface Vessel
Skaters on thin ice
Soften the blow
Of an awaited fall
No bones broken
The final stretch
Is the ideal one
Ready I am
To break the spell
And let things drift
In the Summerlands
The sea has burst the dykes
The moorings are broken
Taking roots is beyond the strength
Of a shallow breather
Of the surface vessel.
Track Name: Dismantling
A life of labour to get unstrung
For the spine to come unthreaded
Years of sacrifice
Waiting to jump
Into the course of time
Without interrupting the flow
Ended up entangled
Caught on the metal bars
Of the merry-go-round
Pain, Holy reminder
Your name has been tainted
Pain, daily reminder
Somewhere along the way.
Track Name: Utterly Destitute
Crude remains
Beyond redemption
Contorted faces
Swallowed up by the darkness
Of the gap to be part
A bottle of leftover wine
Bodies of no leftover life
Such a roundabout way to get there
The hint of a gesture
Broke up the movement for us
Took the heat out of us
For decay to make its way
From the backbone
Towards infinity
Hang-gliding out
Of the fullness of your heart
I belong to the interval
Of the gap I am part
The Holy scar cannot heal over
Without secretions of the divine
Just swallow the beast for now
Unsettled beast
Immune to any temptation
Of fulfilment.
Track Name: The Bosom Of The Earth
Life has to run its course
Somewhere out-of-the-way
Cut yourself off from my bosom
Cope with the dreadful truth
Cope with that rusty blade into my heart
Life has to run its course
Cut yourself off from my bosom
Cut myself off from the bosom of the Earth
Cope with the dreadful truth
Cope with that rusty blade into my heart
Life has to run its course.
