Track Name: Over Me
I…now and forever yours
I…soon into the fray

Spring child
Breaking through
Flanders Fields
Turning rogue
Summer falls
Painted dew
Winter chills
Wait for you
All of this
Over me

I…found a peace in this
I...shall we meet on the Westward wind

Go!
Track Name: And The Rain Came Down
Star shell night
Hold the fire step
Nerves shattered and torn
Over there

And the rain came down
On this hallowed ground
And we’re drowning in droves
General can you tell me why?

Joy, hope, peace
True, for this we’ll fight
Blood, thunder and mud
This is what we’ve become

And the rain came down
On this hallowed ground
And we’re drowning in droves
General can you tell me why?

Beauty in the breeze
Beauty among the least of these
Oh oh oh here we come
Generals with their treaties and guns
Treaties and guns
“…bomb against bomb, and the devil for all.”

We are told…
And the rain came down
To carry on…
On this hallowed ground
We are told…
And we’re drowning in droves
To carry on…
General can you tell me why?
On and on….
Track Name: Breaking Through
Sun shine down
A kiss from sky to ground
A warring affliction now
White feather day
Stealing the days away
A madness descending now

I can’t figure it out
I can’t shut it down
Hate flow all around
Love true broken down

Night astir
From Heaven down to Earth
This moonlight betrays us all
Brave and few
Bellwether rendezvous
A Maxim concealed now

Vis-à-vis
A rage of flesh and steel
The perfect confluence now
Evensong
No matter right or wrong
We are the same beating heart

I can’t figure it out
I can’t shut it down
Hate flow all around
Love true breaking through
I can’t figure it out
I can’t shut it down
