Track Name: My Revival
I have often said, I could live forever if not for death.
And I have often felt, my cards were pulled from the bottom when they were dealt.
And in one dream I saw, a trip I took revealed before a fall.
An argument from desire, I have had my feet held to the fire.

Oh, leave me wanting.
Oh, keep me haunting.
Oh, leave me wanting.
Oh, keep me haunting.

All my life I sought, to live outside the law and not be caught.
And in my ignorance, refusing any counsel to be taught.
Sowing to the wind, a reaper of the whirlwind til the end.
Reason is abandoned, this insanity I will defend.

Oh, leave me wanting.
Oh, keep me haunting.
Oh, leave me wanting.
Oh, keep me...
I am the son who demands that which I am entitled.
My head held high, I've been searching in vain for my rival.
Riches to rags have been wasted in trade for survival.
Fully expecting upon my return a reprisal.

Silence your lips before raising dead issues,
Clemency covering my former life,
Blood shed in stead has now made a way,
For My Revival.


I will be met at the gallows by my accuser.
Finger of scorn pointing me out to be the abuser.
Beckon my witness to refute the charges against me.
Face to the ground, I plead mercy, reveal my destiny.


Silence your lips before raising dead issues,
Clemency covering my former life,
Blood shed in stead has now made a way,
For My Revival.

My Revival.
Track Name: She Is Perfect
She first came to me
in childhood dreams
Knelt by my bedside
and would softly sing

She'd tell me strange secrets
of things yet to pass
Of sorrows to come
sorrows that would last

Wrapped tight in her velvet
I truly could see
And now just as then
she comes and she sleeps

She is perfect

As the gates crash open
all eyes turn to her
Her presence electric
with intent to burn

The knowingly guilty
in futility flee
Her beauty destroys them
to compose purity

The horrible king
who begs for her hand
She cuts out his tongue
and scorches his land

She is perfect

She can take all she wants
She's given me more
More than I hoped
and prayed for

As the palace is burning
the world sings her praise
Our eyes meet
her lips mouth my name

She is perfect

I will lie on my death bed
in wonder of her
All others turned away
I will not bear their words

The door will creak open
she'll float to my side
With heavy sad eyes
my tearful goodbyes

I will taste her sweet kiss
as her hands clasp my face
She sweetly will sing
"We will meet again"

She is perfect
Track Name: Hungry Ghosts
The time of hungry ghosts has
come again

They laid bare our souls and
settled in

It's come undone before it's begun
We've had our time now let us move on

Distant bodies feeling
close within

The dreamer or the dream
wearing thin

It's come undone before it's begun
We've had our time now let us move on

A black kite on a cold
winter's day

This is not a game I
wish to play

It's come undone before it's begun
We've had our time now let us move on
Track Name: Voices From Beyond
Voices From Beyond

And as i wander thru the dark, the darkness knows my name.
I felt so far apart, the only comfort now is pain, comfort now is pain.
And all these shadows in the night, the conflict and the fight.
To walk between two worlds is driving me insane, driving me insane.

And i think back onto that night, when the lost ones came to me.
Spectres of pure light, here to torment me. Cast down from eternity.
And in their wicked world outside, their judging eyes cut deep.
Longing for the day of my eternal sleep.

Voices from beyond, I can hear them calling.
Whispers from the dawn of time.
Voices from beyond, singing fear to lull me.
Reveal all my sin, in rhyme.

And as i live to bear the mark, the darkness calls my name.
Enticement of the heart, to play this twisted game,
with rules that always change.
The spoils are laid before their feet, still the conquest incomplete.
This merging of two worlds, leaves my soul estranged.
Leaves my soul estranged.
And now i turn and step outside, these walls of bitter pain.
A move that drives the knife, and the blood comes down like rain.

Voices from beyond, I can hear them calling.
Whispers from the dawn of time.
Voices from beyond, singing fear to lull me.
Reveal all my sin, in rhyme.
Track Name: Absalom Again
Why can't we let go?

Why can't we go home?
Track Name: You're Among Friends
Not ev'ry grave is a gate to death
A stranger path may lead you here

You're among friends
You're among friends
(don't worry)
We're all here

All waters flow on to the oceans
To mingle salts with fresher tears

You're among friends
You're among friends
(don't worry)
We're all here

Don't fear what's next, nothing will harm you
Know in this world you're not alone

You're among friends
You're among friends
(don't worry)
We're all here
