[goddess - reverance] the first, he loves his queen with folded arms on bended knee he came here before his queen to say his love is an eternity solid as a rock, it never sways and it will thrive beyond tomorrow WHAT WILL ALL OF THIS BECOME BEYOND TOMORROW [princess - obsession] the second, he loves his queen with all the tools to take her home and frame her and have her close enough to serve as a reminder that a better version of himself lives inside her he'll find his light beyond tomorrow WHAT WILL ALL OF THIS BECOME BEYOND TOMORROW [lady - egoism] the third, he loves his queen with open arms and loving eyes he sees her and spends the love that's in his heart upon her and swears only for today that he can love her for who knows what lies beyond tomorrow WHO KNOWS WHAT LIES BEYOND TOMORROW

(Aglaopheme and her sister) in a tower by the ocean sits a princess who sings the boats to shore the boats to shore and the sailors who hear her can't help but fall in love so no boat ever leaves she'll sing 'til no man sails the sea her sister is the mermaid who makes the waves she makes the waves she makes the waves hers is a story of heartache and woe she fell in love with a sailor-boy and tried to flip his boat come in to my arms, she sang come in to my arms and he came and he drowned now he's dead she's never known love she's the tempest that rages through winter she knows not of her sister for at birth she was cast from the shore for the safety of all to give that storm space to rise and it rose and it rose until it claimed love and tried through she did she could not understand so she sings no more she sings no more she hears an air and dances her sister's tune if she ever happens upon torre a mare she'll learn the air her sister sings to the ocean and the sailors can once more sail and volkova can once more find love when the seas calm

Please Sir 03:32
how did it come to this those with used to help those without wealth used to come and go in waves with the seasons there's a gap between the richer and the poorer and a trade worth knowing was a trade worth sharing one fell as the other grew the other grew the other grows please sir, will you let me grow please sir you take from the poor and give to the rich like a benifit plan for the unneedy like a reverse robin hood i'm working towards being king someday but i started at the bottom and i keep sinking lower and the harder i try, you put your hand out for more please sir, can i have some more please sir, can i have some more please sir these indellible scars on my back i can't see but i feel every time i lay down the summer breeze eases my pain you can't take that away you can't take that away you can't take that away ... please sir

i see fragments of a wise old relationship flash through my memories ... farmhouses and trees appear and dissappear with uniform precision she points to something out in the distance that neither of us can see but she describes its beauty i stare at her finger, fool that i am but i just love this now, this here, this you lila in my arms lila in my arms i see fragments of an inverted relationship flash through my memories ... i picture you with a jug of glühwein and tinsel in your hair or at least a red ribbon drifting through the viennese marketplace snow dancing in your wake you move through the fair and me lost somewhere in a cold wet north wandering a wilderness, blinded by a vision of you blinded by a vision of you blinded by a vision of you lila on my mind i see fragments of a wild unfounded relationship flash through my memories i died from not being able to meet you again or forget that you exist ... when we were but a breath apart i realised what beauty could be and that night as i beckoned you closer and pushed you away i saw we were the same - i paused on a forever and was scared when you were in my arms this was truth - you were real - you are lila in my arms

Generation Y 05:29
we're the lost generation caught in a promise of tomorrow knowing yesterdays child has still not grown we'll take our children by the hand with their wisdom try to save this land from perishing beneath the hand of man she said, "don't worry about the big picture tonight, "we're going to paint just a small bit right "and it'll shine as an example for the rest!" she said, "we're children too when the nighttime falls "and the answers lie in those who love" i heard all this and she never uttered a sound! eloquently silent, she said everything i needed to hope one day this will all be ours or so the promise goes our children are going to grow up strong they'll find their own sense of right and wrong we'll educate them to stand up tall as their morning shadow shrinks reduced and silent we'll stand by and watch them flourish and guide them if they ever should get lost she said, "don't worry about the future tonight, "we're going to paint just a small bit right "and it'll shine as an example for the rest!" she said, "we're children too when the nighttime falls "and the answers lie in those who love" the peter pan generation lives on in us one day this will all be ours or so the promise goes we need to teach the future generations to do better than we've done for some day this will all be theirs

Believe 04:49
I want you made of stone Then maybe I can call you my own I never took anything from you and I'm sure You don't realise everyone you know adds to you character Maybe you want to learn who you are Things you do, things you say push you too far Maybe you cannot see the person you were meant to be Maybe you've gotta believe in yourself for a while Believe in yourself for a change I want you made of sand Then maybe you wouldn't fall apart so often Then you'd be one step closer to some kind of strength Then you'd be one step closer to living your life at length Maybe you want to learn who you are Things you do, things you say push you too far Maybe you cannot see the person you were made to be Maybe you've gotta believe in yourself for a while Believe in yourself for a change Still young enough to know that colour makes no difference But not yet old enough to know that words are as strong as the reaction they get Maybe you want to learn who you are Things you do, things you say push you too far Maybe you cannot see the person you were made to be Maybe you've gotta believe in yourself for a while Believe in yourself for a change

... and you brushed me off i'll remain in this place forever how did you put it "the nighttime took over the day, now the day is lost" and i lay waiting to hear your voice i lie here waiting to hear your voice i am here waiting to hear your voice she asked me to stay and trusts me enough to allow her tears to flow i held her as our nighttime took over the day now the day is ours she watched her movies and i watched her she watches her movies and i watch her waiting to hear her voice can you tell me please, do you hold this memory too or was it born of a seed in my mind like a hug or a handshake growing and maturing 'til every detail stood as real as the memory i now hold the touch of your skin is a memory i now hold

Thaias Kept 07:13
her life started the day it nearly ended she had tasted her last customer and in this new age, she would know her true worth but the world was not yet ready born in an age where women were fruit and the men fed freely we would see your value now but would try to exploit it porno mags, like catalogues for private fantasies live forever in the past it's all acted out for everyone to see imagination is lost my last five years on the rails have brought me a new loneliness my travel companions are part of me so when i'm home, i'm alone 'cause that part of me sails on so i find people like her among the folds of the dreamers she banged the door down with clenched fists and an exhausted heart her tears mix with her bloodied nose and stain the front steps a priest, first in fear, and then in pity offers thaias sanctuary born in an age where women were fruit and the men fed freely we'd see your value now but would try to exploit it she came to court with darius at the age of 16 where she was passed from man to man until alexander conquered her sharp-witted and humorous, she kept his court alive with games and parties, thaias kept the night 'til one summers evening in 330 BC, she turned his hand to persepolis holding his heart, she cast the second flame, after his and they stood back and watched the palace burn she fled alone to 1683 to a swiss monastery where she lives, looking over her shoulder for the past to catch her how liberating it must be, she thought to live without the fear of getting caught! how liberating it would be to live without the fear of getting caught! how liberating it would be to live without the fear of getting caught!

These Words 04:18
come in, darling, i've been waiting for you i've warmed your side of the bed she sleeps on the right hand side hold me, i want to feel you're there i want to hear your voice before we drift away and i'll sing for you and these words are for someone in this room and you know who you are the others left long ago now yours are the only eyes open yours are the only ears hearing and i... and soon you'll go and travel the world and i'm already moving you're my heart's delight hold me, i want to know you're there i want to see your face when i lay down at night each step takes us closer together are we nearly there? and these words are for someone in this room and you know who you are the others left long ago now yours are the only ears open yours are the only eyes seeing and i sing for you and i crave your warmth and you're so far away and i crave your warmth and there you are, a beacon in the middle of the room lighting my way guiding me through this sea of savages and home, yours is the only mind open yours are the only ears hearing you're the only one left with me in this song
