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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Quiet Garden 04:37
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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Dollhouse 02:10
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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

On My Way 02:56
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" - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Father Sin 03:50
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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Adrift 04:12
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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

River Home 01:19
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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hold On 03:07
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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Mother Road 01:27
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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Mercy 03:50
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 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

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. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
