Track Name: First Light
In the space of wonder there was so much
and worlds fissured into their simplest forms
there was rain and i and the path
three in communion
rain and i and the path
all three against the sun
suddenly as one

nothing was left unsaid
there was no need for certainty
in forms unbuilt, the tower even built itself
but now terror, in the light
I'm scared of the possible
the horror of the unseen
that it talks always about

terror: I don't know what to do
I'm scared and I don't know what to do
Old friend, what should I do?
one who's passed, please tell me what to do

but how could you know when nothing is true
how could you know when they found it anyway
and not even the world knew
how could you know when no road is right
how could you know when even the right road
ain't for you

first light
Track Name: The Eternal World
one road one body
and the body of all else
this body is like the body of trees
sympathetic to
the god-body upon it
as it is quiet, sick and eternal

all effort is made
for that which has already passed
all effort is made
by a broken heart
the wind is wrong
its is completing a world
one that is quiet, sick and eternal
quiet, sick and eternal
Track Name: Transition
birds with certainty wake
birds with certainty sleep
birds with certainty sing
what i could never sing
transition, go easy on me
transition, please let it be
easy

i shook, shook in the blinding cold
i screamed for the darkness lost
i stood in the grey storm
grey light, blue light connect
transition, go easy on me
transition, please let it be
easy

ghosts on skyline form
i knew them from before
they once held up the only star
now they show us its light
so we know it's still there
transition, go easy on me
transition, please let it be
easy
easy
Track Name: Golden Light
No, it never goes away
no truth should give up
so easily

She burns from
the orb in two ways
forever within and
forever without

but a friend comes and says
"I don't know what is right
but in this light what you're doing
is wrong"

and that was too much for a western soul

so you take the road
only the demons take
and they welcome you
with their sad eyes

the demons know the final truth
that's why they're alone
that's why they don't talk

but that wasn't too much for a western soul

behind you was built
a world against the world that is
made of color and light
and it never goes dim
and it has no sun so no sun can set
and it has no rain so no rain can make it right

golden golden golden day
golden way
golden light
golden end
and no one's right
except the demon's only friend
golden light
golden end and
no one's right
except the demon's only friend
golden golden light
golden golden light
Track Name: Name Becomes Event
nothing separate the battle from the mountain
blood and screams don't leave
blood and screams don't live of the edge of a shadow
the grief and the quiet don't leave
from this life
or this place

its name becomes the event
it always had this name
knowledge of what has happened
knowledge of what's to come
lives in star
lives in stone
lives in life
lives in death
and all is all
forever
and always was
before
before star
and before stone
was forever
and inside
was this place

its name becomes the event
it always had this name
knowledge of what has happened
knowledge of what's to come
lives in star
lives in stone
lives in life
lives in death
and all is all
forever
Track Name: Where Is Paradise
i've spent so much time
looking at things
whose very meaning
is in question
that my own
soon becomes so
but when the light is right
everything, everything
becomes divine

but when their song sounds wrong
the only life is the life
that exists in paradise

paradise ain't here
is it anywhere?
what choices i've made
not to go there
they're not the choices
i would have made
if i had known better
if i was stronger

maybe with a different body
maybe with a different mind
maybe on a different earth
maybe under a whole different sky

but when their song sounds wrong
the only life is the life
that exists in paradise
where is paradise?
