Track Name: Tuberose (TRNSCND rwk)
I was not part of it
I was looking at the moon
It smelt like tuberose
But I couldn’t decide if it was alcohol
Or if it was the night.

We had gold in our hands
We had time, we had strength
And we could have told life
From what was not yet life

I was not part of it
I was looking at the moon
The knife came quick and cold
But I couldn’t decide if it was your anger
Or if it was your pride.
Track Name: The Way It Ends
Is it really the way it ends
Something quiet & something sad
Any wonder any friend
Any touch that touches mine

Tell me how deep can you see
Tell me how far can you go

Is it deeply the way it hurts
Something unknown & something cold
Every edge of every fold
Every gash is rousing yours

How did it feel the day after
Track Name: Scars (STRL rwk)
Senses of you and sparkles all behind
O sad old stories coming in
Wasted struggles of any kind
O dead soldiers, traces of war

Words will be scars right up upon my skin
Track Name: Distance (FRSS rwk)
It is buried where silence bursts
Beneath a thick skin of regret
Along with tears, along with joy
With peace and everything that hurts
Red as anger, red as pride

And I cannot dream while it is asleep
I cannot slip out while it is locked inside
Red as anger, red as pride

It’s been hidden deeply and long
Only to keep me out of reach
I’m searching keys to keep it still
Signs that will keep me heading strong
Red as anger, red as pride

She says it will happen somehow
The day doors are left wide open
When there is no one there to tell
The way out all fears will follow
Red as anger, red as pride
