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”

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

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
4.
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
5.
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
6.
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

Repent 04:07
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

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 additional vocals by Patrick Leagas
10.
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
11.
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 additional guitars by Peter Fritz
12.
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
13.
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
14.
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 additional soundscapes by Jóhann Eiriksson
