Track Name: The Icarus Account
Im finding out
All too late,
What it means to live
Under the sky.
Don't tell me now
That we have to choose,
Between living and life,
The earth and the sky.

Wings of wax and feathers,
Fly me away.
Could this be my chance,
To start again?
Think I spoke to soon,
They're coming undone.
Well that's what you get,
For flying close to the sun.
Track Name: A Conversation Between God and Man
Climb down from your mountain
And bury your toes in the sand.
The world isn't listening anymore,
Your time is close at hand.
I don't know what's happened to you all,
but look at you now.
So, climb down from your mountain
And bury your toes in the sand.

Well, the earth is ready
To give up on you now,
And we're all waiting
For something.

I know its been a while,
Since we last spoke,
But im taking care of
My own.
Since you went away,
Ive been here searching for it
(but nothing comes close)

Hey kid, don't tell me what to do.
I've been around a lot longer than you.
It's hard to talk when most dont have a clue,
of how the hell they can listen to you.
I dont know what's happened to us all,
But look at us now.
So, climb down from your mountain
And bury your toes in the sand.
Track Name: Lost to the Deep
Im coming home,
But i've not got that far left to go.
My journey lies ahead,
Through dangerous waters.
I hear her song,
From somewhere down below
And its a perfect sound

Well, I hope to see you again,
But i really don't mind
If this is it right now,
I've lived a good life.

Im coming home
But there's a million miles left to go,
And somethings making me slow down.
That's alright with me
'coz its the most beautiful thing
I've ever heard or seen

Well, I hope to see you again,
But i really don't mind
If this is it right now,
I've lived a good life.
These waters hold a secret.
It will be mine.
Im just another sole lost at sea,
But I swear I dont mind.
Track Name: A Trojan Romance
Is this what you wanted my love?
To watch the city burn for us tonight.
Well, I hope you're happy now.

I would set the world alight for you.
Just to watch those bright lights in your eyes.
Well, i hope your happy now.

Oh, the cheaters have been cheated,
(I would let the earth burn for you.)
And the liers lied to.
Desception's never look so good
(Is this what you wanted, my love?)

Oh, our love has burned the city down.
No, don't worry about a thing now.
Just keep holding my hand,
And everything will work itself out.
(And these flames will put themselves out.)
