Track Name: Flaxen Dawn (Part I)
The warmth of day along the skyline
Waiting to cover the realm in caramel rays
The birds begin to sing, trees wave to the sun
And the graphite clouds sail the horizon

The world awakens and the ether swelters in life
Arouses the dreams and hopes of all that can be
The world is born
For it's the start of another flaxen dawn
Track Name: Bluebird
Open up the door one morning
Wince at the sun shining in my eyes
Rays of light in the air
Hit my face and bring my soul so free

Mr Bluebird sings me a song just like he used to do
Doo-doo-do-doo-do-doo-do-doo
Mr Bluebird says to me just what he has to say
Hey hey hey hey, hey hey, hey hey

Another day has to pass
Maybe I can ask the green green grass
But it just sits and waits the rain
Has nothing to do and nothing else to say

Mr Bluebird sings me a song just like he used to do
Doo-doo-do-doo-do-doo-do-doo
Mr Bluebird says to me just what he has to say
Hey hey hey hey, hey hey, hey hey

Mr Bluebird telle me one more thing
Enjoy the sun and everything
You don't know what is next
Maybe a girl or another piece of bread

Mr Bluebird sings me a song just like he used to do
Doo-doo-do-doo-do-doo-do-doo
Mr Bluebird says to me just what he has to say
Hey hey hey hey, hey hey, hey hey
Track Name: The Leaves Of Autumn Fall
Days pass and the wind swirls round
A blizzard of leaves from off the ground
Rustle and bustle I do recall
It's the leaves of autumn fall

Elysian fields of glowing reds
A winter's day the leaves a bed
Reds and greens, yellows and all
It's the leaves of autumn fall

Doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo-doo, oooooh
Doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo
It's the leaves of autumn fall

Van Dyke brown and harvest sounds
Shattered skies I see throughout
Whispers from trees I hear the call
it's the leaves of autumn fall

Doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo-doo, ooooh
Doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo
It's the leaves of autumn fall

Arabian leaves wish about
I'm not sure if that's allowed

Days pass and the wind swirls round
A blizzard of leaves from off the ground
Rustle and bustle I do recall
It's the leaves of autumn fall

Doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo-dooh, ooooh
Doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo
It's the leaves of autumn fall
Track Name: Heavens Falling
I see trees around me, swaying in the air
I sees leaves forming the bark likes to wear
Watching blossom growing, creating its own share
I see grass shaking, seeming it's so rare

I see heavens falling
I see heavens falling
I see it falling in the air
I see heavens falling
I see heavens falling
I see it falling in the air

Blackbirds fly around me under shadows of the trees
Everything glows around me, some dark and some are free

I see heavens falling
I see heavens falling
I see it falling in the air
I see heavens falling
I see heavens falling
I see it falling in the air

Do you still see the sparks in the rain?
Do you still think that I'm to blame?
Do you know I still need you?
Do you feel so blue?

I see heavens falling
I see heavens falling
I see it falling in the air
I see heavens falling
I see heavens falling
I see it falling in the air
Track Name: Flaxen Dawn (Part II)
The morning has set in stone
Like a heavy rock in water
Rays of light have awoken life
And the trees stand tall to control their domain

Squirrels skip and birds gossip while feeding their brood
Woodland harmonises around the warmth of rays
And the river tricklets its name into the earth
Making its way to the bigger world

All too much for a man to stand alone
He gets lost on his way to find an answer to his question
Is he so different?
Track Name: Over And Over
I'm suspended by my mind
Feel nothing but your life
Creeping forward straight at me
Out of dust it must be

Fight away the golden curse
Keep it flat so I won't burst
Making sure I can't be hurt
Loving my way, safe from the dirt

Over and over, over again
Over and over the stars are my friends

Crashes of thunder round my head
I'm so close, so close to my death
Bolts of lightning fly at my eyes
It's the world that hears my cries

Over and over, over again
Over and over the stars are my friends
Track Name: Neverman (So Alien Like)
I ask the Neverman where can I be?
Only to find it's not what it seems
He says 'Don't worry son'

The stars and rain will guide you on your way
You will be safe but do not stray
Just follow that path

I'm so tangled up inside
I feel so alien like
I'm so tangled up inside
I feel so alien like

Neverman

The Neverman is on my mind I can't leave him behind
He told me all he knows, he came from life
It's flown by so fast

I'm so tangled up inside
I feel so alien like
I'm so tangled up inside
I feel so alien like

Neverman

I'm so tangled up inside
I feel so alien like
I'm so tangled up inside
I feel so alien like
Track Name: Orange Moon
Settles on wispy stones
Hiding behind trees of steel
Can you see it shine for you?
It's the man shining his torch from the moon

Orange shadow deepens the night
Hanging in the air like a pumpkin light
Can you see it shine in space?
It's the man on the moon showing his face

Orange moon talks to the night
I'm going round in circles all my life
Orange moon talks to the night
I'm going round in circles all my life

Oh can you hear me Neverman?
Yeah I'm finding my own way
Oh can you hear me Neverman?

Orange moon talks to the night
I'm going round in circles all my life
Orange moon talks to the night
I'm going round in circles all my life
Track Name: Everything Is Fine
Breaking out in a sweat in the morning time
You think everything is fine
But it's not

Looking through the sheets on the washing line
You think everything is fine
But it's not

Hope you find what you want, put it back in time
'Cause I just don't think you're fine
Take my hand and we'll see if things take their cost
I just want us to be

Breaking out in a sweat in the evening time
I'm glad everything is fine
Now

Looking through the sheets in the evening time
I'm glad everything is fine
Now

Hope you find what you want, put it back in time
'Cause I just don't think you're fine
Take my hand and we'll see if things take their cost
I just want us to be

Hope is what you wanted I'm sure you'll see
That you'll leave this all behind

Hope you find what you want, put it back in time
'Cause I just don't think you're fine
Take my hand and we'll see if things take their cost
I just want us to be

I just want us to be
Track Name: The Passing Night
From melting orange into the black nebuary
He stares into the face of whoever may look back
Thousands of twinkling eyes pass their judgement
On the question he asks

Each with their own story to tell
The curiosity of a man who may be lost is concluded
And his wisdom of all can only be passed
By understanding the morals of life
And the individual traits of each and every person

The passing night has told its story
And the answers he seeks are as clear as a flaxen dawn
