Track Name: Sawyer Town (Ouverture)
When I was young the trouble got me down
Thought I was to be the richest man in town
And I tried so hard to believe
in something I never learnt
And on my way to find the answers
I guess I got what I deserved

Every night I slept under the stars
Once I saw a preacher wearing stripes and evil scars
He said ‘Son, what you’re dreaming of
is evershining gold
right outside Sawyer Town
at the end of rainbow road’

So I left my home in the middle of the night
Saw my mother’s words written in the sky
‘You be careful with that gold
It doesn’t often make things right
Oh you may become a rich man
but you can’t buy no pride’

But I was so blind and I took what I could get
Didn’t think about the anxious words she said
I filled my pockets up too heavy
I couldn’t walk the line
And I tumbled down down down
in that old and dusty mine

Now I don’t know how long I’ve lingered there
Prayed to the Lord above but he didn’t hear my prair
And when finally I realized that this would be the end
A woman came to save me and I took her by the hand

Now we got married I got to be her prince
But I have thought about them dark days ever since
When the godforsaken hunger was tearing me apart
While all I ever wanted was a woman’s golden heart

Track Name: Quiet Garden
Let me be I can walk on my own
Let me out of this garden it’s quiet and cold
You gotta let me go
I was tought by the wind to come home
I was never in search of the questions below
Think I was scared to know

And it seemed to be all quiet in here
But the needles they fall and quietly
everything changes in who we are
In who we are now

Pull me up ‘cause I’m dying to breathe
Life is hard after seeing a part of the scene underneath
Cut me once if it’s only a dream
Cut me twice ‘cause I do not believe this is real
surreal, so real

And it seemed to be all quiet in here
But the needles they fall and quietly
everything changes in who we are

And the roses are red
and the grass it is green
And as long as it grows
we don’t care about outer world’s crows
And we keep on falling in between

Track Name: Dollhouse
My darling son where have you gone?
You're all I had in this great world
How could you forget

And the fire marches through your dollhouse
And wipes out everything

Your mind is like an empty room
The lights are on but there's no-one living inside

And the fire marches through your dollhouse
And wipes out everything

Your memory is fading
The silence
The silence

Track Name: On My Way
I'm on my way home
On my way home
and the clock keeps ticking
I'm on my way home
On my way On my way

I cannot find the pieces
'Cause they run away
run away from the puzzle

I'm on my way home
On my way home
and the crows keep picking
I'm on my way home
On my way On my way

I cannot find the reason
In a wicked mind
Only lies and treason
On the other side
Other side of the tunnel

So I'm on my way home
On my way home
and the crows keep singin':
"We're leading him wrong
He's on his way
On his way gone"

Track Name: Father Sin
Something's wrong: The wolves are growing hungry
They're growing strong and they're coming after me
I'm one of them but I wear this human body
And I can't get it off me
Evil moans in the shadow corner
There's a hole in every human heart
I'm on the verge of the Devil's border
Heiden fire inside of me

Father Sin are you home
Release me from these prison walls
This skin is killing me There's a monster in my soul
Let it out to take control

Broken teeth are sticking under my bare naked feet And it hurts like hell
I disappear inside your wide open mouth
And I hear you calling me:
Close your eyes sing me your song of sorrow
Close your eyes embrace me as your own
Close your eyes and I'll show you what it feels like
When you carry a coal black heart

Father Sin are you home
Release me from these prison walls
This skin is killing me There's a monster in my soul
Let it out to take control

We'll stop the angelrising
We'll raise their army to the ground
We'll clip their wings and make 'em
bleed for a tenthousand years
You'll be the Lord and master
You'll be the holy cross they'll bare
This world is yours and yours alone

Father Sin are you home
Release me from these prison walls
This skin is killing me There's a monster in my soul
Let it out to take control

Track Name: Broken Lightbulb Blues
I keep waiting
I keep waiting
Broken lightbulb shine
Am I wasting
Am I wasting
Am I wasting time?

Everytime I lose a little

Useless information
forging swords of iron
building walls of prison
Tell me; what am I waiting for?
I'm gazing out the window
Teardrop-drinking river
lurking in the shadows..

I keep waiting
I keep waiting
Broken lightbulb shine
Am I wasting
Am I wasting
Am I wasting time?

Everytime I lose a little
Yeah everytime
I lose a little

Track Name: Adrift
There was a time when there was time to relate
When you were young and wild and sober child
But the changes make it harder, harder now
Remember when you stood your ground
When the world was full of magic
Before the changes took you further, further away

You’re drifting away too far
And one of these days
you’ll be playing somebody else’s part
Can you not see you can never get far
When you’re far from who you are

You’re walking around so confident
In the middle of a circle trail
But where’s the middle of a circle anyway
You’re gonna wake up in some distant place
When you realize that you’re lost
Fool, I’ll show you the right way up to heaven

You’re drifting away too far
And one of these days
you’ll be playing somebody else’s cards
Can you not see you can never get far
When you’re far from who you are

Mother I’ve changed I’ve taken the wrong way
And it doesn’t take me somewhere safe
Though I’m not afraid but why does it hurt me
When I’m drifting further away

Lay your head in my arms, cover your eyes now
And remember the way back to me
It’s not too late so turn around now
Because someday it will be

Track Name: River Home
I've been searching for repentance
In about anyone but me
I have drifted far out
Into waters unknown
Will I ever find direction
In this troubled sea
Will I ever catch a wind
To the river home

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Track Name: Hold On
Are you lonesome here stranger, travelling
Don’t be afraid to fear, afraid to come back to me

Hold on to me, hold on to me
Hold on to everything you hold so dear
Hold on to me, hold on to me
Hold on to everything you hold so dear

This is just a dream, dreamer
And It’s yours to dream
Don’t be afraid to dream
And whenever you lose your way:

Hold on to me, hold on to me
Hold on to everything you hold so dear
Hold on to me, hold on to me
Hold on to everything you hold so dear
Hold on to me, hold on to me
Hold on until' everything has disappeared
Hold on to me, hold on to me
Hold on because I will always be right here

Can you hear the river
The singin' birds
Don't be afraid to fall
Into this world

Track Name: Inner Child
The world I'm dreaming of
Is floating up above
The world I live in

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Track Name: Mother Road
I have been unknown to me Mother Road
Long enough to realize I was wrong
Pinching me to wake me up doesn't help
'Cause I alone can take me back to you

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Track Name: Mercy
I’ve come tenthousand miles on my barenaked feet
I wrote all I could write I read all I could read
But a sky full of words and a voice in my sleeve
Cannot show me the way to mercy
There’s a road on the map leading up to the floor
After God made the earth did he lock the door?
Now the blood paints the ground
While we fight for the key
It’s the key to a town called mercy

Cry it out and there’ll be no more hurt
Cry it out it’s just a simple word
Away now Let me fall into
the wilderness’ embrace
You gotta let me go

And so I’ve come to the end
I might have burrowed too deep
Have I tumbled down from a stairway too steep
Now there’s no turning back
There’s no space to retreat
So to hell and to ruin with mercy

…Have mercy on me

Track Name: Homeland (Reprise)
At the end of the road
There's a garden I know
And a tree in the garden there grows
In the shape of a hand
That will carry me forth
Through the darkness and down to my homeland

And there's always a crow
Circling 'round your head
When you try to be good in this world
But through the darkest of nights
That we live to regret
In the distance there lies your homeland.
