about

Recorded prior to Joe joining the band and after Tom (our first drummer) leaving. As a result, our good friend Felix Hagan sat in as the third piece of the puzzle.

Track Name: Shine On
Steering through a field of wheat,
A winding trail behind my feet.
Where i go i do not know
but i'll take my time, i'll take it slow.
Think of times spent oh so sweet,
and then a drifter i do meet.
For the wicked words he next would speak,
he advised i sit and take a seat and said.....

"No one is safe from an unexpected end.
Death may be waiting for you around the next bend."
A fool? A madman? A drunk of his head?
Or was i exchanging words with judge of the dead?

Tell me sir how i should be,
If there's such fragility.
Wave goodbye to those i love or relish in their company.
What should it all mean to me,
If the tree of life sheds its summer leaves?
Why must you be my enemy?
But he turned to show his back to me.

"No one is safe from an unexpected end.
Death may be waiting for you around the next bend."
A fool? A madman? A drunk of his head?
Or was i exchanging words with judge of the dead?

Let me hold the key,
To unlock my fears and set me free.
Oh how wonderful it must be,
if just once to hold back reality.

When all your lights go out others shine for some,
As when one life ends, others are begun.
This gives me the strength to SHINE ON.
Track Name: House of Solitude
In his dreams at night he lives a different life,
Where his dark and dampened soul can shine with light.
The world is at his will when the world stands still.
He waits for night to fall so he can have his fill.
Walks around without a care,
No sign of anger anywhere,
Frozen faces cannot stare.
What brings him to this place.....?

Hate and war everywhere
Pushes him into despair.

Now he starts about making his repairs.
Starts a new day and feels a lighter wind in the air.
Not like the thunderstorms back there

When he wakes his head begins to ache,
The day breaks, it all seems so fake.
Waits for night to fall so he can have his break.

Hate and war everywhere
Pushes him into despair.

Chorus
Track Name: Where I Can Be Alone
I'm losing my mind again, this doesn't feel like home.
I long for that simple place where i can be alone.
A place where i can say whats done is done,
look to a better day.
Bow down to the beating sun, absorb its peaceful rays.
I've found a way to understand.
I'll show you if you take my hand.
That better land maketh better man

But neither wind nor rain, nor a lonesome pain,
Can bring me down today.
Cos i feel alive in this forgiving place,
the place that has no name.

Back there the streets are overgrown,
and the skies are black with crows.
The earth has cracked a left a hole.
The tip of the inferno.
Perhaps i'm wrong and i'll grow tired of this place,
and need to share with someone to keep me sane.
But till that point where the feelings cease,
this is where i shall remain.

I've found a way to understand.
I'll show you if you take my hand.
That better land maketh better man.

Chorus

Only now am i set free,
of the best inside of me.

Chorus
