Track Name: Fireship
FIRESHIP

“places don’t change, only people”

Rod McKuen saves my life each and every day
it took me years to understand and you just turned away
nothing starts tomorrow, there is no greater time
and yeah maybe you are right, leave it all behind

you go you disappear
but we are still here
like a fireship

see the people vanish, letters never read
you found your peace, you never looked back
going with the flow, that’s your road to ruin
I am still here and you don’t know McKuen

you go you disappear
but we are still here
like a fireship

here we come with flaming sails

destroy my day and haunt my night
this life we burn unseen
a sacrifice is not a loss
you stay away, I stay awake

destroy my day
and haunt my night
you stay away, I stay awake
and here we come with flaming sails

“places don’t change, only people...
some people”
Track Name: The Loneliest Grave
THE LONELIEST GRAVE

“the birds in my tree are evil”

leave the pain behind
and all that goes with it
cut off all the past
and run for it
it never was that easy
resign to the fact
ruin all the bridges
and live a life intact

we go down I go down
I’m stepping through the door
I quit the day and seek the night
I will never be reborn

bury my hate The Loneliest Grave
bury my hate The Loneliest Grave

left behind with pain
and all that comes with it
cut off all the past
and die for it
it’s too late now
there is no going back
burn all the bridges
and leave a life intact

bury my hate The Loneliest Grave
bury my hate The Loneliest Grave

we go down I go down
I’m stepping through the door
I quit the night and seek the light
I do not want to be reborn

bury my hate The Loneliest Grave
bury my love The Loneliest Grave
Track Name: Destroy Your Life
DESTROY YOUR LIFE

“somebody who belongs to my world“

and do you look at the stars
and dream of your past
it was so long ago
oh did you ever know
destroy your life
I’d like to think that you destroyed your life

I am where I always was, buried inside a tomb of dreams
and here we are on the roof of our life, preparing to fly without wings
all the years have passed in vain and the road gets shorter everyday now
I was waiting for something to happen but then you just flew away

and do you look at the stars
and dream of your past
it was so long ago
oh did you ever know
destroy your life destroy your life
destroy your life

and do you look at the stars
and dream of your past
it was so long ago
oh did you ever know
destroy your life destroy your life
I’d like to think that you destroyed your life

beneath your old house I saw horses, running free with your mourning
to foreign shores on ships of gold, that’s where we should be going
but there are things in me that time can never heal
and all the voices in my head: “summer is just a dream”

and do you look at the stars
and dream of your past
where did you go
and did you ever know
destroy your life destroy your life
destroy your life

do you look at the stars
and dream of your past
where did you go
and did you ever know
destroy your life destroy your life
I’d like to think that you destroyed your life
Track Name: There Is No Death And There Are No Dead
THERE IS NO DEATH AND THERE ARE NO DEAD

“only forgetfulness”

there is no death and there are no dead
there is no death and there are no dead

there is no death and there are no dead
I can’t lose what I never had

a fire in my spine
salt on my skin
where did I come from
no one was waiting I just blew in

a flicker on the face
flashes in the eyes
the sweetest memory
the beautiful lies just like a dream

black smoke rising
in the waking hour
the journey is over
throw the flowers into the fire

there is no death and there are no dead
there is no death and there are no dead
I can’t lose what I never had
there is no death and there are no dead
Track Name: At The Crossroads
AT THE CROSSROADS

“here we stand forever”

we lead the lives we make and make the lives we lead
going back I’d change a lot, but not what I’ve now got

one day in time a season of change
this is for life instinct and will

hear
listen
they speak to me
all things fall

all things fall yes, Betty Corrigall
this is for life this is for life

hear
listen
they speak to me
the taste of winter

it is true
it might never happen to you
you may not see
when’s your time
at the crossroads

at the crossroads
at the crossroads

hear
listen
they speak to me
the years go quickly
Track Name: North Isles Motel
NORTH ISLES MOTEL

“and the promises that we made“

take the ferry across the Sound
pass green fields and narrow ways
on the hill the old Windhouse
we are here to contemplate

I meet you in the North Isles Motel
here we start life again
I meet you in the North Isles Motel

take a walk step out of time
an empty beach where animals die
so far away it feels like home
forever bound to travel on

I meet you in the North Isles Motel
here we start life again
I meet you in the North Isles Motel

I meet you in the North Isles Motel
I drink up in the North Isles Motel
I touch you in the North Isles Motel
we start again in the North Isles Motel
Track Name: Repent
REPENT

“may the past arise and change the future“

repent

where are you now
I was never here
it is not clear to see
what you gave to me

your magic works forever
mine was never seen
our journey ends in Reykjavik
where are you now

repent

the lights go out in a different world
the place where you live today
to get away from all these dreams
where I have chosen to stay

what I have now is much better
than everything you could have given

the lights go out in a different world
the place where you live today
to get away from all my nightmares
where I have chosen to stay

what I have now is much better
than everything you could have given

Track Name: Sleep On The Wind
SLEEP ON THE WIND

“the longest journey“

I go away what they sing they never do
I go away forever going home
I go away back to where I came from
I fade from view just like you

I go away to places you will never know
I go away on ships and trains and aeroplanes
I go away my path remains unclear
I go away towards the lesser travelled seas

in our life we are alone
on our own we sleep on the wind

I go away and leave your lives behind me
I go away and leave you all alone
I go away driving, driving, driving
I fade from view just like you

in our life we are alone
on our own we sleep on the wind
I go away, back to where I came from
I fade from view just like you

in our life we are alone
on our own we sleep on the wind

I go away what they sing they never do
I go away forever going home
I go away back to where I came from
I fade from view just like you


now now I see

Track Name: The Once And Future King
THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING

“the greatest hate of all”

it beckons to us all
sometimes we cannot hide
it beckons us inside

open the door, a knock so pure
in comes the seraphim
teach me things, I already know
filled with adrenalin
cut him down, yet he grows back
and makes my blood sing

it beckons to us all
sometimes we cannot hide
the most unusual thing
the once and future king

wide open the door, a knock for sure?
in comes the seraphim
leave me things I don’t need
like a life to begin
cuts me down, cut, cut
in comes the new king

come in

it beckons to us all
sometimes we cannot hide
the most familiar thing
the once and future king
Track Name: To The Distant Grey
TO THE DISTANT GREY

“these are the lonely things”

I remember the dreamwind
filling my sails then blowing me off course

I remember the blue sky
the follies of youth and a wish to die

I remember things held close
thrown away and forgotten

I foresee that it will come true
this my wind now blows for you

calling calling
across the blue

I remember the black heart
the knowledge of age and the falling apart

I remember the feelings I lack
and the friendships that were a stab in the back

calling calling
across the blue

I will burn this page today
I will throw my life away
I just do not want to stay
I give it all to the beautiful sea

calling calling
across the blue

to the distant grey

Track Name: Now We Make The Past Undone
NOW WE MAKE THE PAST UNDONE

“we have nothing but time”

coming late but here we are
on our forehead the fallen star
so here I am, here I stand
await the moment time will bend

coming back out of the dark
on my forehead I wear the mark
feel the day when it’s all gone
now we make the past undone

now we make the past undone

arriving late yet here we run
in our heart a secret sun
here I am, here I stand
and my world will never end

now we make the past undone

come come
now we make the past undone
go go
to the place where we all must go
away away
listen, “remember the day”
you say
all those years get washed away

now we make the past undone
Track Name: My Ocean Is Shipless
MY OCEAN IS SHIPLESS

“places you will never know”

and now snow does fall where Strindberg walked and lived
so much has been out of reach but behind the sun is another one

speak of what shines bright tonight but not tomorrow
it is good that I don’t find words, words destroy the lonely things

the gods I worship are inside
is this the last song of my life
I have wasted so much time
and the starry sky above

the lonely have no right to share the summer sun
let’s stay inside and do nothing, this is it, my suicide queen

the reek of flesh sickens me now, the past betrays
a decision my body has made, this wave crashes above my head

the gods I worship are inside
is this the last song of my life
I have wasted so much time
and the black sky inside

I have wasted so much time

the gods I worship are inside
is this the last song of my life
I have wasted so much time
my ocean is shipless

there is no road
you make your path as you walk
Track Name: I Woke From A Sleep That Lasted All My Life
I WOKE FROM A SLEEP THAT LASTED ALL MY LIFE

“silence the voices from long ago”

everything I’d change a whole life to rearrange
only one dream was good only once I understood

down the hill from where I live
there’s a road that I never take
have I gone out or did you come in
I can’t remember now that I’m awake

I never speak about what treasure I have found
I outlived my past and silence will make it last

down the hill from where I live
there’s a road that I never take
have I gone out or did you come in
I can’t remember now that I’m awake

you pulled me away and what more can I say
if it was meant to be it’s now that I am free

down the hill from where I live
there’s a road that I never take
have I gone out or did you come in
I can’t remember now that I’m awake
