Junk Intro 01:27
One day you came upon brutality The world was bursting at the seams But faced with radical realities You rather lose yourself in dreams
2.
So many colors to choose from All the vibrant emotions Oh, can anybody guide me Here's a boy without a master plan Here's a child without a cause And clouds are moving in Gabriel, you thoughtless spoiler of romance Keeper of things in cans Why do you capture sunshine in a box Small things and melted rocks CHORUS Clouds are all around you Love will never find you Gabriel, collector, still you quest for more Gather and keep in drawers Capture yourself and choke inside a jar Gabriel, you went too far CHORUS
3.
Here is my castle Higher than below Far from your eyes but Close enough to show Much higher than below Here is my halo Aberrate, depart Far from your mind and Closer to the heart Must aberrate, depart
4.
I've been keeping my madness inside But all my thoughts collide Flowing out of nothing and into my brain Are things that I can't explain There's just no sense in it I traded all my thoughts for a gun It's so much fun I've been beating my head against the wall It makes no sense at all Falling from the sky and into my hand Are things I don't understand There's just no sense in it I traded all my thoughts for a gun What have I done But everything is dum doo-be wha, oh no I wish it wasn't so
5.
Thin Air 07:00
Friend, are you drowning in sorrows and doubts Lost in the moonlight Follow the trail from within and without Feel that it's alright Out for the weekend, you're into the blue Higher adventures are waiting for you Hush will you, better yet swallow the pill Sleep through your daytime Tell me sincere, do you think of it still Think that it's so fine Higher in altitude, into thin air Don't be afraid, I shall wait for you there CHORUS Time is so slow Running out, running low SOLO CHORUS Leisures in evergreen gardens hereafter But didn't you know That it's not what it seems My friend, we're living in a dream
6.
Hold on, the waves that crash upon the stone You were here, when I was waiting there alone Hold on, the snow that's swirling on the ground You were here, when I was nowhere to be found CHORUS Like a bird of passage I'm the one who's on the run There's a loner lost behind the sun Hold on, the leaves that rattle on the wind You were here, when I was outside looking in CHORUS Hold on, the ice that melts into a stream You were here, when I was drowning in a dream CHORUS
7.
Mausoleum 05:30
Purple afternoon And here comes the moon But where to go When you're not alive and well no more I know there's a place Where you can show your face With no regrets And be sure that everyone forgets CHORUS Come on down to The Mausoleum Join the crowd at The Mausoleum Anytime you need a resurrection Bring a friend to The Mausoleum It's gonna end at The Mausoleum So be on your way Soon the night is day And Mausy closes then But opens soon again CHORUS Drink a zombie under the table While reading another Da Vinci fable Shake hands with the vampire lord And discuss the case of Charles Dexter Ward CHORUS
8.
Standing here on White Cherry Hill Breathing air where the time is standing still Been away for so many years And locked away the soul inside my fears CHORUS No time to kill White Cherry Hill Rain comes tearing up the eastern sky Is this the feeling that was lost as time rolled by I wonder why You turn your head as to say goodbye The stop to suffocate the urge to tell a lie I wonder why CHORUS I'm coming home from a hell of a ride Tumbling down the slope of a mountain side Coming home is a way to live And coming home is a way to die CHORUS
9.
Junk Outro 01:27
Alas, the time has come to say goodbye The pleasure all was on our side It's time to face the cold reality It's time to wake up from your dream

about

A concept album about seeking refuge in dreams.

"Donning the voluptuous vocal harmonization, can't miss songcraft and vibrant production recalling late- and post-Beatles Paul McCartney - and marrying it all prog-worthy compositional surprise and complexity (while never becoming tawdry) - is the recipe for this criminally talented threesome from northern Sweden."
- John Patrick / Progression Magazine #59

"The Beatles meet Marillion in a time warp and stop to pick up Be Bop Deluxe along the way ... absolutely brilliant!"
-Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck - MuzikReviews.com
