Count the miles before they pass you by
Shadow of the sun has crossed the sky
Fill your head with everything you find

Beyond, beyond this horizon
Beyond, beyond this horizon
Beyond, beyond this horizon

Somewhere in the valley where you lie
Pray for those whose sun will never rise
Ghosts are laughing everywhere you land
Take another step and then you can't

Beyond, beyond this horizon
Beyond, beyond this horizon
Beyond, beyond this horizon

Count the miles before they pass you by
Shadow of the sun has crossed the sky
Fill your head with everything you find

Beyond, beyond this horizon

. . .


Where do you stand when it's all over
Washed from the Earth and down to the sea
Do you lie in a bed of roses
Are you still aware
Guess that you don't care about it now

I've seen your shadow knocking at my door
All plastic face and shaking hands
How much space can ever hold you
Are you still aware
Guess that you don't care about it now

(Inside, it's alright)

Where do you stand when it's all over
Washed from the Earth and down to the sea
Do you lie in a bed of roses
Are you still aware
Guess that you don't care about it now
Are you still aware
Guess that you don't care about it now

. . .


Tries to preach us in the dark
By the river I hear you talking
Strike a match to the Western sky
Blowing fire in the sweet, sweet summertime
[Alright]

Eyes betray what your words don't speak
Burn my gaze with sadness
[Turn your head away]
I'd rather be almost anywhere else
A step away from madness

No man's promised land tell me what you may
Tell me what you mean
Saw the moonlight waiting somewhere further down the way
Wrong turn to Jahannon, I wonder if you'd stay
No man...

Just a preacher in the dark
By the river I hear you talking
Strike a match to the Western skies
Blowing fire in the sweetest summertime

No man's promised land tell me what you may
Tell me what you mean
Saw the moonlight waiting somewhere further down the way
Wrong turn to Jahannon, I wonder if you'd stay

No man, No man, I wonder if you'll stay
Yeah, wonder if you'll stay
Yeah, wonder if you'll speak
Yeah, wonder if, wonder if, wonder if
Wonder if you'll stay at home
Wonder if, wonder if...

. . .


Deep into my tears, hold me under
Drowning in despair, so many years
The only place that I'd wish she could fly
Never in his sky

And I would not hesitate to tell the story of her fate
In a storm, was she dead or disappeared, or did she fly
Never said goodbye, goodbye - yep!

Leaves have turned to gold
And all the trees have fallen to the ground
I can't explain
All along I knew that she would fly
But I think she's died
Goodbye, hey, goodbye

. . .


When you walked into the room
Never seen your face before
On the ground with all that crawls
To your head before the dawn

Now I'm caught between and tired of all this pain
Holds you under but the shadows still remain

Voices tap you from behind
Did one say that I was wrong
Go ahead and blind yourself
The feeling never will be gone

Now I'm caught between and tired of all this pain
Holds you under but the shadows still remain
Time has taken me down from my pedestal

Then you walked into the room
Never seen your face before
Close my eyes to see the sky
Won't follow you there anymore

Now I'm caught between and tired of all this pain
Holds you under but the shadows still remain
Time has taken me down
It's taken me down, way down there
You know that it's taken me
Oh, I said Lord don't take me
And now it's taken me down
Down by the ground now
Woah, yeah

. . .


Nowhere is the soul I felt
Now I've lost my way
Nowhere is the place I've been
Promise not to stay
How it was and always is

Sometimes it never will begin
And it won't take very long (too long)
If you come around
If it all goes wrong
You can lay your head down

Nothing is inside the hollow shell I left behind
Nothing left of innocence
It's drifting with the tide

How It was and always is
May be it never will begin
And it won't take very long (too long)
If you come around
If it all goes wrong
You can lay your head down

. . .


Blackness all around
(Can you wake me)
Truthless little town
(Can you wake me)
Flying in your streets
(Can you wake me)
Drowning in your sleep
(Can you wake me)

From another dreamless night
Long before we arise

Howling in your field
(Can you wake me)
Unconquered and unreal
(Can you wake me)
I'm crawling deep inside
(Can you wake me)
Drifting with the tide
(Can you wake me)

From another dreamless night
Long before we arise
Long before we arise

Something About Today

[No lyrics]

. . .


Alice said to come on in now
It's time for bed
The hour's quite late
I need a nap to clear my head
Laid it down, the pillow softly calls to you and me
I've been sat down, bounced all around
Now I can't see, blind happily...

Alice said have you forgotten what we'll be
Concealed in smiles that come too late
Now I can't see
The sun goes down, thoughts go astray
She might take my soul away

Don't close the shades until the twilight fades
Yep!

Alice said to come on in now
It's time for bed
The hour's quite late
I need a nap to clear my head
The sun goes down, thoughts go astray
She might take my soul away

Don't close the shades until the twilight fades
Don't close the shades until the twilight fades
Alice said...(repeat to fade)

. . .


Where are you walking to
There's a trapdoor straight ahead falling through
What are you gonna do, gonna do

Visions of us on the wall
Sisters spellbound in the hall
House is dark and everybody's happy

Close my eyes to the dawn
There's a wheel of destruction coming on
It's all we never said, ever said

Visions of us on the wall
Sisters spellbound in the hall
House is dark and everybody's happy

The time for light is over
Darkness drops you in deep
These are things we shouldn't let go, girl
Secrets that you should know
But it's alright - yes, it's alright
Oh come on, it's alright
Didn't I say that it's alright
As far as you know it's alright

Where are you walking now
Fate just set a trap coming down
Our heads are filled
With all the things we used to hear
Everything never said, never said

Visions of us on the wall
Sisters spellbound in the hall
House is dark and everybody's happy
(Fuck the house...)

. . .


Don't you try to find me anymore
I want to stay outside of your world this time
We've thrown it all away

That was one mistake I never thought you'd make
Once you loved the path that has no end

Close the door and think a while
And you are all alone
Staring into nothingness
Your eyes'll turn to stone

Return to yesterday, there is no easy way
Once you walked away but now you stay, yeah

Faded out are memories
And moments that you took
Locked away inside a box
Never thought you would follow it down and back
Disappear in your own tracks
Don't you think you've had enough of that

. . .


On a day so long ago now, no one can remember
There's a chance this too will pass vanish in the haze
This is moving too far under the skin of your sight
Ocean of confusion took me back to the end of the night
Transparent dreams fade in my head and in my eye
I'm looking back for one last time

Make a dash towards the door in sudden disarray
As the daylight turned to rust
The more you want to stay
Trapped within the silence
And do you think it's alright
Close your eyes and try to fly
Back to the end of the night

Transparent dreams made in my head and in my eye
I'm looking back for one last time

Now day has broken, scattered in the wind
Lies still unspoken, nothing left to say
Sliding by a picture and then fold it in your hand
Ride it out in hopelessness, now you'll understand
This is moving too far under the skin of your sight
Ocean of confusion took me back to the end of the night

Transparent dreams made in my head and in my eye
I'm looking back for one last time ...time
Back to the end of the night ...night

. . .


Histories are held within your heart so let it go
Open all the doors around your eyes and let us know
Certain keys were held within your hand so let it show

Bring us closer to the flame
Bring us closer to the fire
Where's the spark within your eye
Where is the spark

Thunder in your ears until you can't hear this at all
Rivers flow in tears until your destiny's dissolved
Drifted through the years until a voice receives your call

Bring us closer to the fire
Bring us closer to the flame
The end and beginning are the same
It's all the same

Mysteries are kept within your heart so let it show
Open all the doors around your eyes and let us know
Certain keys were held until they must have let you go

Bring us closer to the flame
Bring us closer to the fire
This world can't take us any higher
Bring us closer to the, bring us closer to the fire

Yeah, higher and higher and higher
Bring us higher and higher and higher
Bring us closer to the, bring us closer to the fire
Oh yeah, no you can't, higher and higher and higher
Bring us closer to the, bring us closer to the fire
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Bring us closer to the, bring us closer
