Track Name: Rising
I feel it in the air
I feel it in the Earth
I feel it in the fires on the mountain side
I feel it in the eyes of the people passing by
I feel it in the water
I feel it in the flood.

Its rising
Rising
Its rising
Rising

I've seen it in the patterns of the stars above
I feel it in the movements of the Earth below
I feel it in the falling of the autumn leaves
I feel it in the roots of the disappearing trees
I feel it in the fire
I feel it in the storms

Its rising
Rising
Its rising
Rising

Rising up the time has come
We are one or we gone as one
Rising up the perfect wave
We are one or we are washed away
Gone will be conspiracy
Gone will be duplicity
Gone will be the fallacy
Gone will be illusion from our eyes
Track Name: Sailing
A long road it has been
Too short it would seem
With your hand in mine
Until the edge of time
A perfect harmony
It looked like it would be

Sailing
How long have you been?
Sailing
On that frozen sea?

All the autumn leaves
Have faded from their summer green
and all the memories
Like roses they have gone to seed
A perfect harmony
It looked like it would be

Sailing
How long have you been?
Sailing
On that frozen sea?
One day
I will find you
I don't know where you've been,
But one day
I will find you
and I'll let you in
From the cold and the rain that burn your skin
From the cold and the pain that burn within

I'll find you there
No matter how away you go, no matter how far away
I'll find you here
No matter how away you go, no matter how far away
I'll find you here
No matter how away you go, no matter how far away
Track Name: Secret Symphony
All was quiet in the dark
The moon rose over the land
and one by one the stars came out
in quiet conversation
silent conversation with the night

And from a thousand miles away
I saw you smiling at me
How do you lift my heart in to heaven this way
with secret symphonies
and silent melodies

And from a thousand miles away
I saw you smiling at me
And all the things I couldn't say
They came flying from me

I'm coming
I'm coming through
I'm coming
to be with you
I'm stowed away
on a plane
I'm stowed away
I don't know when I'll return again

I'm coming
I'm coming through
I'm coming
to be with you
I'm stowed away
on a plane
I'm stowed away
I don't know when I'll return again
Track Name: A Cage and a bowl of milk
Once I knew a girl with a wild eye
She was dark and beautiful
Once I knew a girl with wild heart
It always seemed so full

She led me up the stairs
To a darkened room
And there she left me all alone
An arrow in my mind
Driving me insane and blind
and I don't know which way to turn

Once I knew a girl with a wild song
She wrapped it round my heart
She kept it in a cage with a bowl of milk
Admittedly that wasn't so hard

Up this darkened stair
To this darkened room
Where she left me all alone
An arrow in my mind
Driving me insane and blind
and I don't know which way to turn

I don't know where she's coming from
I don't where she's going to
I should listen to myself
I don't know where it's coming from
I don't where it's going to
I should listen to myself
For we'll never see
All the things would could have seen with love
We'll never know
All the things we could have known with love
We'll never hear
The music that we could've heard with love
Love
Love
Love

Once I knew a girl with a wild soul
She was dark and mysterious
She kept me in a cage with a bowl of milk
Accommodation was luxurious.
