Track Name: White Horses
Beneath the highest of tides
Ghostly figures stir
And awaken the void
A call to roam the seven seas
Towards the shore
The lore of the deep
A spell is cast
Emerge from waves
White horse
Celestial force
Hooves tread in the southern light
Through winter cold, ablaze
And torching the way
Equestrian excellence
An abundant and fruitful life
Ancient heartbeats
Rooted in earth
Ride on
Track Name: I Will Go To Your Tomb
Remember when in the womb
Draped in secrets of final dawn
I will go to your tomb
At last light
I will raise a stone
Bury time so old
And the stars came to me
What was revealed within?
Come drifter, wanderer
In your bosom lay my dreams
Track Name: To Transcend
In your flowing hair
Every forest entangled
Echoing through time
Every mountain holds your voice
Track Name: With Arms Like Wands
Deep into the sea of night I heard you sing
Your presence eluding me yet I still dream
To drink of your wines, to run the rivers dry
I have found myself begging for more
With arms like wands you rise from the cold earth
With arms like wands you gather all the moons
With arms like wands, stranded in your mystery
With arms like wands, the folly of a thousand lifetimes
I follow you
Surging waves of grief
Frozen winter’s will
Stretched out on the floor
When and where… did you go?
Return to me
Track Name: If You Leave
You say goodbye and wonder why
Did you want me to go?
Will I ever know?
Walking away with heavy eyes
Down the path I chose tonight

Felt the chill in my bones
As I watched them drown
In the lake of your eyes
Lamenting still
But the night is young
And the world’s asleep
Why did we take to the streets
With heavy, hollow hearts?
(You) Pull me in
(The world’s asleep)
I’m a lost child swimming in my dreams
And you’re the fleeting memory
Come over in spring
I can’t believe it’s been
So long
So long
Slumber forged in weeping millennia
If you leave
If you leave
Return to the void
The distant constellation
Goodbye
Oh sweet darkness
Solitary maiden
The oceans you must cross
Farewell
Nocturnal flower
In the silence
My soul nests and pecks at your love
