Track Name: Can You Hear The Sound
Silence in the rain
On your window pane
Silence in the rain

Here it comes again
From another plane
Here it comes again

CHORUS
Can you hear the sound
Flowing all around
Can you hear the sound

Heartsease in a gale
On a windy day
Heartsease in a gale

Thoughts will blow away
No more disarray
Thoughts will blow away

CHORUS

Silence in the rain
On your window pane
Silence in the rain

CHORUS
Track Name: And Forever
Have you got a minute of your limited lifetime to spare
After all the minute you got is only yours to share

Don’t you think it’s time to realize the time is now
And forever

You don’t have to run, you don’t need to be another you
What’s done is done, let your mind fade out of view

Don’t you think it’s time to realize the time is now
And forever

There’s no expectation
No living in the past
What’s the point of chasing
Something that won’t last
Track Name: Over The Rolling Hills
Over the rolling hills and far away
You can find a new place to stay
Beneath a waning moon you’ll walk alone
Take the path by the big blue stone

CHORUS
Over the rolling hills
It’s a confined free will

Over the rolling hills you’ll see the truth
No more aging, there’s only youth
The sky from red to black will change its light
Let us hope there are stars tonight

CHORUS

Over the rolling hills, you can be free
No more nightmares or misery
The endless stairs of change you must descend
No one ever knows how it ends

CHORUS

Over the rolling hills you may not go
How it would be you may not know
Track Name: Blue Halos
Blue halos
Miles above the ground
Blue halos
You’re blotting out the sun
The world will come undone
When your rays start searing

Blue halos
Frequenting the mire
Blue halos
Through a fog of haze
In an endless maze
I hear a siren singing

Blue halos
Falling from the sky
Blue halos
Swooping down below
I’m old enough to know
But numb enough to stay
I just can’t turn away
Track Name: Savage Minds
Reversed evolution
Unmaking the mind
A joint retribution
All fates intertwined

Craptacular reasons
For trusting it all
Abstaining from treason
By taking the fall

CHORUS
I am, you are, Savage Minds
The April fool leads the blind
Into a faux résolution

A speech demagogic
From capital square
Twisting the logic
Believers beware (Beginners beware?)

Light-hearted capers
Performed by some bloke
The audience's laughing
But where is the joke

CHORUS

Newborn directions
Grow underground
A time for expression
A time for new sounds

CHORUS
Track Name: Panic In Their Eyes
Like a Red Corsair
With her windy hair
She cruises ‘round the world without a care

She’s the next of kin
She’s the evil twin
And we’ve lost the time we thought that we could win

CHORUS
Everyone has panic in their eyes
Though she comes as no surprise

It’s a call to account
But there’s no amount
That can bring her ghastly apparition down

It’s the bitter end
And a heaven sent
As we her coming crawling around the bend

CHORUS
Track Name: Running Out Of Mind
CHORUS
Running out of mind, don’t you know that I’m
Running out of mind, does it happen to you
Running out of mind, don’t you know that I’m
Running out of mind

When nothing is right
I just think we might

So let me tell you something that you ought to know
It’s time to drain the tap of the insanity flow
Lest we all run out of mind

If he was alive today
I wonder what would Teddy say
About the new commercial way
If it bleeds
It surely leads

CHORUS

Now the truth is up for sale
The world is waiting to exhale
What will follow in its trail
The fault ain’t real
It’s a delusive deal
Track Name: Been Ostracized
Is there anybody on the phone
I want to be left alone
Nobody ever comes my way
And that’s ordained by common fate

Got a house with a darkened steeple
There's a rumor 'bout me eating people
But that's how I engineered it
In communion with my own spirit

CHORUS
Been ostracized
But it's nice to be a self-dependent social outcast

Been a troglodyte a long long time
Knowing no one is not a crime
When they sent me off to Coventry
It was actually good for me

CHORUS

Is there anybody on the phone
I want to be left alone
But now this story of bittersweet
Seems to be stuck on repeat
Track Name: In The Country
Came to the city
Of the many logs
The sky was pretty
Then came the fog

Underneath the gilding
Was a shade of gloom
The towering buildings
Were turning into seals of doom

But in the country
Of the tulip trees
And the emerald leaves
There's a place for me
And I want to be
In the country

Staring up to the old moon
On a dragon’s head
There’s no king’s peace
For the dancing dead

Plagued by the vermin
They crawl to light
Almost wish they’d catch me
And catapult me out

To the country
Of the tulip trees
And the emerald leaves
In the open air
Won't you take me there
To the country

But if I can’t be there in summer time
Friend of mine
Will you wait
Please would you wait
Wait for me

In the country
Of the tulip trees
And the emerald leaves
In the open air
Won't you take me there

To the country
