Track Name: The Return Movement
Restless & torn, at the death of your god
Cry no more
You’re fading fast along the heights
Take a moment
And face me inside, my friend

Come see the face of your future
the key to your perfection lies here with me
Disguised behind this simple form
are the eyes that resist temptation & pride at all costs

Enclosed far beneath the frozen fields I've let go
Moved closer to touch the light, spiring to and fro
Watched the patterns of chaos ripple out & return through my troubled roots
I know we're ready to make it through the transition

We've felt the weight of your greed killing our innocence, thought you were empowered with
a gift to understand why the wind betrays you
& how the cure is all around you
Go then if you don't feel right
Separate the shores

We're too connected to slip away
Too fragile to lead you on, light your way
Fly into your sculptured sun
& Bring back what once remained

Settle down, grasp and lock out fear
You're moving further through your hostility
Peel your eyes open and recognise
You're scratching through the walls of mortality

We're too connected to slip away
Too fragile to lead you on, light your way
Fly into your sculptured sun,
Bring back what once remained
Surrender as the cyclones rage
You never have to hurt again

We’re dying to feel her hold of care
One gesture, one glance from her
Will take the weight we have come to bare
(I’m frightened by this pain)
will take the weight we have come to bare

Heal me, heal me, heal me
Heal me, heal me, heal me
Heal me, heal me, heal me

Up from my centre through the seventh gate
Like my thoughts, I rise
Like my thoughts, I die

Terrified of what may come now
I'm only pure when I burn with clapping at your throne
Feeling aligned with this source through you

No longer, will I yield to the comfort so cold
No longer are we fooled by their reckless desire
Where the hearts turn to stones could you & I with fate conspire?

Higher, higher, higher
Utterly in the moment, tremendously in the moment
Feel the harmony flow within confusion and disorder
Track Name: A Place Unbound
And you asked to trust not the ones who turn from love
Retreat inside with humility & climb to freedom

In front of our eyes they
Burn the clues, forge the sound
The sound of our reason
to dwell in a place unbound

Oh you wonder if we still belong

Now self-delusive freedom in my brain
Invisible leash I consider sane
Clear me out for a new delight
Before the suffering fool unite
I'm the reflection of you disarming them with one cry

“Where have I been?
Where am I going?”

In front of our eyes they
Burn the clues, forge the sound
The sound of our reason
to dwell in a place unbound

As darkness falls each night we purge this love
I’m safe in your arms
Fearless like I began

The time has come to step aside to see what's beneath
The time has come to turn to dust...

Feed the fire that changes all I’m a part
Conquer this space more than I trust

And the best has yet to come
As I raise my eyes towards the sun
I disown all I have come to embrace
Through ages, isolated and fried
In my final hours I’ll fight for resolve
I know that I’m still alive

Can you see me now
Unearth and saved
I swear I’ll brave this light
For a thousand years I’ve been
So afraid to greet you
As you are
