Everlasting Instant

Tracks

01 Own the Mystery
What was it that you said to me? • There’s no escape • You own the mystery • So full of fire I once had been • With passing years • The fire’s dimmed • It’s been a long time • Been a long time since I’ve been around || You can calculate and question • With every deduction dependent on the assumption • For while I’m here why waste my time? • Why waste my humanity on this reality? • It’s been a long time • Been a long time since I’ve been around || And I’m aware • That’s what scares me • I’ve been left to know; allowed to understand • And I’m aware of responsibility • If you own the mystery • Do I own the mystery? || When I find the way alone • I can’t find the way again • When I search the sky for heaven • The message he won’t send • Silence brings it all before me • I can feel the spark ignite • Silence brings it all before me • No more reason left to fight || Can’t look away; I can’t move • Can’t even make a sound • Won’t you take me by the hand now? • Lift me off the solid ground • I must give in and understand • That we will never || What was it that you said to me? • There’s no escape • You own the mystery • So full of fire I once had been • I want to be • I want to be • It’s been a long time… Since I’ve been around… || And I’m aware • That’s what scares me • I’ve been left to know, allowed to understand • And I’m aware of responsibilities • If you own the mystery • Yes I own the mystery
02 Every Minute
(Instrumental)
03 Start Again
Don’t care what you think of me now • My spirit’s sprawled out on the floor • The eye is locked upon my soul • So don’t tell me it’s not on you • You left me to bleed; You left me to die • And all I really wanted was to stay the same • And all I took from you was everything except the blame || Don’t know what you want from me now • To know I had but lost somehow • Woke up from this dream in my bed • I’m drowning in the air • The time to turn the other cheek is come and gone • I thought I knew where I was headed all along • But all I really wanted was to stay the same • And all I took from you was everything except the blame|| “Keep drinking your champagne,” he said • But it’s raining stones in my head • Let my imagination go • And change the stones into snow • Is someone whispering in my ear? • Is someone whispering in my ear? • Who’s whispering in my ear? • Don’t you whisper in my ear || What if I’m right? • Will I be ready to see? • Will I be ready to know? • What if I’m right? • What if I’m right? • We’re gonna go eventually • Why not be ready to go? • Like when I was a child and as white as snow || If you’ve tried all your life to be in constant motion • Then you know it’s like a straight line through the ocean • It just can’t be done • By no one, nowhere • It just can’t be done • If you think you’ve got the knowledge to make it all equate • Lost all your wonder to appreciate • Turn it off • Start again • Where’s the wonder, my friend? • So you’re feeling like you might be just a little misunderstood • Change a couple things only if you could • If I only had the time • Could there be any one more kind than me? • It’s time to come out of my hiding place || Turn it off • Start again • Where’s the wonder, my friend?
04 If It's True
You’d rather be someplace else; I can see it on your face • You don’t believe in anything • You’ve found a perfect space • Well let it be said again and a million times more • I’d rather be naïve now • Than later locked out • On the other side of the door || So many rules to trip you up so perfectly placed • To take upon a worried brow and never have a taste • What is the truth we all ask as if we don’t know? • Well you can find it in the seven minutes • In between the scenes of our own TV show || When you leave forever and you learn the answer • What if you find out you were wrong? • Isn’t it better to take the other side? • Then you wouldn’t want to hide if it’s true || What I really need is nothing different than anyone || Flesh and blood, we’re bound together standing under the sun || Who do I listen to? • What do I listen for? • Cause if I’m knocking on the door I want in || When you leave forever and you learn the answer • What if you find out you were wrong? • Isn’t it better to take the other side? • Then you wouldn’t want to hide if it’s true || If it’s true
05 The Three Seers
Can’t believe in the story I’ve just been told but please tell me again • Cause it brings hope and peace • Yes I’m intrigued • It goes against common sense || Just two could hear but all three they could see a vision hovering in the air • If this is true, I’m telling you this is a game changer || They’d never know what they did to deserve this meeting • Isn’t that the way we all should feel, when love is real even when we should stray? || They arrived in the tenth month on the thirteenth day, 100,000 strong • Women and men wondering ‘is this the end?’ • Staring straight at the sun || They’d never know what they did right • Locked in the cause of our joy’s undenying sight • They were not victims of emotion • They had no need for blind devotion • Oh, how we’ve learned well
06 The Everlasting Instant
Won’t you gather around me? • Trusting, I close my eyes • Just as I hit the solid ground • I’m hovering || As you simply support me • Feel like nothing is there • I cannot even feel your hand • Hovering in midair || Where the wind blows; where the wind blows • There will I go; there will I go; there will I go • Trusting nothing; trusting no one • Into nothing; Out of nowhere; Always undone || Then comes the everlasting instant • It’s enough to take your breath away • It is so evident • Far from abandonment • Though the light blinds our eyes • We can’t turn away this time || Never again; you never know when • Don’t shake the focus • Make the most of every moment • Always question the suggestion • Trusting much more than the moment through the tension || Because the everlasting instant • Is enough to take your breath away • It is so evident • Far from abandonment • Though the light blinds our eyes • We can’t turn away this time || I’m hovering • I’m hovering
07 Keep Away
Don’t know how I can keep away • Let it not go in my head • But I hold you so close • Won’t you take my hand? • Guide me there; Lead me where; everything is light • And I’ll be ready when it’s done • Don’t ever let me misunderstand • Because I can’t get it out of my head • I know there’s a dying chance • But get me there; so I’m free • And for my moment see the eternity || It’s like an autobiographical novel • It’s like an autobiographical novel • It goes against the ways • We’re taught to live these days • For why should you have to go • If he already knows? || For how can one be blamed • If we all share the shame? • And why would you have to go • If he already knows? • I’m cold || Walking around in your insecure ways makes for an easy target • Walking around while securing your days lets me take my time • Cause you’re already mine || To go; you’re saved; you cast me away • The victory is his; to wait • You’re great; just always hesitate • Cause you’ll never be late for me || Don’t know how I can keep away • Because I can’t get it out of my head || Don’t wake this sleeper • He’ll turn out fine • He thinks he’s hiding • But I’ve been watching all the time || Just like the millions • He once knew the goal • Ten thousand millions • If he swallows his pride • He saves his soul || If he swallows his pride • He saves his soul || It’s been a long time • Been a long time • It’s been a long time • Since you’ve confided
08 Can't Feel the Earth, Part IV
Penitent I need to persevere • For sacred words I have not a fear • To fully understand the scope of it • An explanation would not ever suffice || For I suppose if it simply was spelled out • Without a moment’s loss all would surely doubt || Inspiration is the only way • Any explanation would not ever suffice || Free to live the life I’m meant to live • Free to give the gifts I’m meant to give • Penitent I’ll try to persevere knowing • Times will come just as before but my soul will not fear || And so I’ll always walk this aisle again • Though I’ve been hiding since I can’t remember when • Putting up all our best defenses • Any revelation must be found on the inside || I can’t feel the earth • I can’t feel the earth • I can’t feel the earth • I can’t feel the earth || Find the rhythm • Find the moment • Find emotion • Help it happen • Find the morning • Seal the promise || Ever wonder • Stay together • Face creation • Everlasting • Just an instant • It lasts forever || So find the freedom • Find the answer • Find forgiveness
09 Illuminata
The steps of life are taken • With little kept in mind • Of how the road is broken • Of signposts left behind || Each print you leave remains there • And every word you say • You hope that what you leave behind • Shows someone else the way || Your truth and your lies all that you do is immortalized || All revealed || Illuminata • Illuminata || No more concealed || Illuminata • Illuminata
10 Sincerest Life
Just the littlest bit of flattery might get you this far • The sincerest life is a tragedy when no one knows what for • See yourself as scenery • A background for the stage • You try to find some meaning but all you see is rage • Fighting evil spirits all throughout the night • You know the truth when you hear it • But you’re still not sure you’re right • I know you see it • Come and seek • You will find • This world is love • Who can hurt you here with me? • This world is love • Who can hurt you here with me? || Come touch my hands • Come feel my arms; don’t be afraid of me || This world is love • Who can hurt you here with me? • This world is love || Holding on to breathing • Is the last word on this page • You wonder of the meeting • When you leave the stage • Thoughts become quite clear • Like a hundred years ago • You see the baby’s tear • In this moment now you know • The sincerest life is a melody • Like a million years ago • It starts with a single note • And you have made it grow… || Who can hurt you here with me? • This world is love || Come touch my hands • Come feel my arms • Don’t be afraid of me
11 Like a Straight Line
Like a straight line through the ocean • Shore to shore with perfect aim • I’ll be standing right beside you • If you’re lost or full of shame || When you feel like you’re denying • And you don’t know who you are • Like a straight line through the ocean • You can never run too far for me • If you feel like you are drowning || Out of breath you’re going down • Like a straight line through the ocean • If you want you will be found • If you want you will be found
