Winter World   [ mp3 ] [ remixes ]

just like a world of winter
the crushing weight of driven snow
I’ve gone beyone all finding
to a place where nothing grows
veil of white, winter world
bound by night, hiding always
veil of white hides this world
starless sky, i am drifting
old fire slowly fading
my vision swallowed by the night
her cloak is wrapped around me
her icy fingers close my eyes
silence all around me
still flushed with otherworldly grace
now they can never touch me
the ache of truth by pain erased

Lakme   [ mp3 ]

sous le dome épais
où le blanc jasmin
a la rose s’assemble,
sur la rive en fleurs,
riant au matin,
viens, descendons ensemble.
doucement glissons;
de son flot charmant
suivons le courant
fuyant; Dans
l’onde frémissante.
d’une main nonchalante,
viens, gagnons le bord
o&#249 la source dort.
et l’oiseau,
l’oiseau chante.
sous le dome épais,
sous le blanc jasmin,
ah! descendons ensemble!

Beyond Dreams   [ mp3 ]

beating their wings on the cage of my mind
thoughts longing now for the calm of the sky
a footprint in dust, a truth under lies
a glimpse of what was mirror-dark in your eyes
in my eyes, your eyes seem
soft as lies, cold as dreams
a night beyond dreams drew me far past my depth
I plunged in, not questioning, drawing my breath
struggling, i fought past your clever disguise
found only myself staring back from your eyes

Dreams Torn Away   [ remixes ]

blessed by the shadows
fading into me
faith in nothing
wandering in between
all my dreams torn away
leaving me with nothing
fields of distant pain
sheltering hidden lies
traces of passion
gathering in your eyes
darkness of your truth
burns with inner light
blessed by the shadows
fading into night

Tell Me

break the silence
tell the tale again
make me realize
this is more than pain
tell me the bitter truth
tell me everything
tell me what you’ve hidden
take away my pain
answer questions
make me understand
say the hard things
make the fracture mend
whisper to me
secrets you reveal
you can’t hurt me
you can help me heal

Lament

Lost in Thought

moments of sorrow falling like rain
distances past and returned again
colors of heartache stir beneath
layers of numbness and spreading disease
ghosts of my fear echo the thought
rising unbidden into my mind
shadows of heartache hidden by time
failing memory of darkness wrought
given a choice i’d rather not take
breath of a soul forced to break
try to forgive but cannot forget
echoes of pain must exist
pale words upon white skin
showing crimson drops of sin
rivers of heartache on the edge
drown the whispers of your love

Untitled

and when I fall, and when I cry
I feel you let me go, I see your lies
and when I fly, and when I call
your arms fall away, you hide your eyes
I see, I try, I dream, I fly
I run, I call, I rise, i fall
and while i dream, you play your game
and when i run you reach for me
and when i change you stay the same
and when i stay you turn away
and though i weep your eyes are dry
and while i sleep you spin your lies
and when i rise your smile has gone
and though i try i’ve lost your love

Distant Land

the sunset sky fills my eyes
green mystery in the stars
reflecting lights show a land
dark and strange at water’s edge
what have i found on this shore
a distant land far beyond
a sound of sighs fills the air
caressing me with a velvet sound
a thousand lights fill the sky
a silver band across my eyes
the dancing waves stir the sand
they’re pulling me to that distant land

Destroy

destroy rising calm
defenseless against your eyes
quiet raging stolen sighs
and longing for your arms
destroy this shadow within me
as mysteries arise
behind a cloak of twilight
the blue of your eyes
transcending inner walls
create a darker light
one glimpse of second sight
before the veil falls
relinquish all your secrets
enveloping my truth
one moment neverending
descending into you

Change

cast down your eyes, i can’t bear to see them
all the pain i feel inside holds me closer to your world
the sky on fire, red for all the anger
for a tale unfolding now, for the dreams you’ve broken
cold wind of change, sighing
blows through our walls, oh
cold wind of change, crying
blows through my soul
your eyes, your smile full of hollow secrets
filled with empty longing now, bearing nothing of our love
bring down our world, now so dark and silent
once we thought we held it all, now we’re lost and frightened

Dido’s Lament

Thy hand, Belinda – darkness shades me.
On thy bosom, let me rest.
More I would, but death invades me –
Death is now a welcome guest.
When I am laid in earth
May my wrongs create no trouble in thy breast.
Remember me, but ah! forget my fate.

Tale of Mercy

from days gone by I am awakening
with sight reborn, with purpose felt anew
a creature formed by hands of mercy
a phoenix child flying on molten wings
from ashes cold
our love will arise
a tale once told
the drifting shreds of lives lost within
the spreading dark, no light to call them home
I touch your face with hands of mercy
an angel child who never found her wings
take one for love, and another for loss
and so to shape the feathers of your wings
I touch with care, with hands of mercy
your soaring form, that found its way to me

(I am) Blind

inside this telltale heart
until our fingers part
between our reaching hands
a story written bright
above and out of sight
of our blinded eyes
take time
steal mine
away again
this time
this moment
i am blind
ageless and divine
hallowed and cast aside
this mystic’s vision untold
a fiction shimmering with light
a seer bereft of sight
these doors forever closed

Coriolis

turning and turning
the eye of the storm
endless whirl of cloudy sky
heart now burning
draw my pain with ashes
bind my limbs, i am
changed forever and always
turning
trembling and moving
inside me, a storm
wind like whispered song
grey and swirling
with a word anoint me
with a thought, i am
sworn forever and always
turning and turning
our love is a storm
endless whirl of cloudy sky
hearts now burning
draw my life with ashes
bind my soul, i am
changed forever and always turning

Regret

once upon a time
a life i’ve lived before
a different face i wore
you had another name
these dreams of dark regret
are filled with bitter tears
chasing ghosts of the past
and all the lives we’ve not lived yet
so close the sound
of our nirvana
a kiss and we are found
and lost like promised love
at cycle’s end
reborn again
this weary soul
always longing for your hands

Dusk Falls

autumn has passed me by again
heeled by winter’s lidded gaze
my mind wanders farther in
and frost embitters every day
dusk falls in the dreaming
a promise of snow
spinning threads of gossamer
to weave my secret skin
haunted by these thoughts of you
heaven-bright and spectre-grim
darkened days have given voice
to febrile creatures, dusk and wan
each created in your likeness
and given a stage to play upon

Shadows Cast

shadows cast like sins of heaven
stirring echoes, shifting minds
pouring out a cold grey dream-state
raining portents, hailing signs
a vision, a nightmare
burns in colors in your mind
a fever, it’s madness
given meaning in time
rainbow glow a washed-out nightmare
bringing sorrow, pouring wine
faster in a spinning whirlwind
fall like petals from a vine
blinded by the incandescence
fade to silence, passing bright
colors in a charcoal dreamscape
stealing thoughts of wondrous sights

Love Songs

all alone again, these thoughts running
through and through my head and drowning
me in their sorrow and their lies and
all the colors kept inside, oh
love songs kept close to my heart
like pretty lies they start
to creep inside and devour my mind
love songs kept close to my heart
now and then i try to run away
from the horrors by my side but
still they come and creep inside and
play their tricks on my mind, oh
i will see in time the truth amidst
all my dearest lies, my fondest
melodies collide with words you’ve
spoken in my mind, oh

O Vos Omnes

o vos omnes
qui transitis per viam
attendite, et videte
si est dolor imilis sicut dolor meus
