Track Name: Fields of Happiness
Open your eyes
While you are all still young
From the old line
How you break free and run

You climb a thousand steps
To feel that fire in your cold hard chest

Put your fears and your sins to rest
Plough the fields of our happiness

Take it all back
To the place where we burn
Let me catch my breath
To feel every word

All I find is a loaded gun
A burning star and the golden sun

Put your fears and your sins to rest
Plough the fields of our happiness

Come break your heart
Be the dying of a star
Don’t wait for the lights 
And the faces in the sky
Do this for love

Put your fears and your sins to rest
Plough the fields of our happiness
Track Name: Long Way Down
All eyes on me as I walk away
Can’t find what I need to ease the pain
A distance in your eye, heavy like a stone
Come down from the edge
Bring your spirit home

Let them see your heart
Let the pieces fall
Let them feel your storm
Let them hunger for...

Thunder breathing a river through your bones
Hunger for a taste of the fire below
Took shelter in the wild colors of the earth
This time you know what your love is worth

Let them see your heart
Let the pieces fall
Let them feel your storm
Let them hunger for...

Its a long way down
Through the fear my love
Its a long way home
To the light of morning

Let them see your heart
Let the pieces fall
Let them feel your storm
Let them hunger for...
Track Name: Paper People
Paper people walking through streets of fire
Looking for a taste of love
Growing hard of hearing you were losing touch
All the while a deeper fire

If you lie in the eye of the storm
The wild heart is born

So there lies a distance in between you and I 
You know that I can feel it well
When I go looking you are hard to define
Fortified inside yourself

If you lie in the eye of the storm
The wild heart is born

In the falling light
Bring your love and your desire
On a road back through the night
There can be no denial

Paper people walking through streets of fire
Looking for a taste of love
Growing hard of hearing you were losing touch
All the while a deeper fire

If you lie in the eye of the storm
The wild heart is born
Track Name: What Will We Become?
What will we become when our life is a setting sun ?
Through the rich and the poor times
At last we have found something we can be sure of
Lay our fears in the ground

Let’s go into the night where no one can find us
Lost out in the time
Feel the fire of the sun
Our love is tied up

What lies behind the king and queen and the veils of time ?
All the lights that we saw down the long winding corridors
Howling winds through the valley call you out in the wild

Let’s go into the night where no one can find us
Lost out in the time
Feel the fire of the sun
Our love is tied up

Where I lay my head in your arms outstretched
Never needed more This I know for sure

Let’s go into the night where no one can find us
Lost out in the time
Feel the fire of the sun
Our love is tied up
Track Name: I Face Myself Alone
In the dark street underneath my window
There’s a ghost I know I must follow
As we both slip out into the shadows
I will stay my fears til’ tomorrow

Lines of color on the road
I see them as I go
I face myself alone
My illusion keeps me warm
Like a rolling summer storm
I face myself alone

There’s a ghost ship sailing into harbor
And a cold black tide on the shore
As we both slip out into the water
Where you know I’ve never been before

Lines of color on the road
I see them as I go
I face myself alone
My illusion keeps me warm
Like a rolling summer storm
I face myself alone

The wind and the rain and the storm in your eyes 
The wind and the rain and the storm in your eyes
The wind and the rain and the storm in your eyes
The wind and the rain and the storm.... 

Will I find some peace of mind ?
Will I follow or lead the blind ?

Lines of color on the road
I see them as I go
I face myself alone
My illusion keeps me warm
Like a rolling summer storm
I face myself alone
Track Name: Fire in the Valley
No light out here
Great heights all around us

Fire in the valley
A diamond in the stream
Changes in the night sky
Lying at your feet

So wild and free
New life underneath us

Fire in the valley
A diamond in the stream
Changes in the night sky
Lying at your feet

Fire in the valley
Changes in the night sky
Fire in the valley
Track Name: Masquerade
Far below the reaches of your mind
Shadows moving in the subway of your soul
Echoed voices from long ago
Could be angels
Could be devils

All the words falling from your heart
Can’t decide where you ought to start
Embers rising into black as you ask me,“Is it right ?”

All the fires are burning low
As I stand alone in this afterglow
I feel lost in a million ways
I have no mask for the masquerade

We took the road winding to the top
Set the scene with heavy hearted loss
There we lay suspended in a state of anguish

All the while you were talking in your sleep
Telling me secrets best to keep
I prayed the sound of your own cries would wake you
And make you come alive

All the fires are burning low
As I stand alone in this afterglow
I feel lost in a million ways
I have no mask for the masquerade

Falling down Set adrift
Out into the world
You come round To my rescue
When I was just a boy

All the fires are burning bright
As I dance alone in this endless night
I feel alive in every way
I have no mask for the masquerade
Track Name: House of Cards
Oh my fire
Oh my heart
Rising thunder
Awaken in the dark

Like a wild river
From the mountain side
A thousand colors
Come crashing through your eyes

So fine is the line
So delicate the word
This house of cards could fall at any time
And the brightest light will explode into sound
And become stardust

Oh my silence
Oh my blood
I lay breathing
In the hour of our love

All I wanted was a look inside your heart
All I needed was a taste of your soul in the dark
Now its all emotion in a rising sea
If I can’t find you, will you come find me ?

Oh my fire
Let the burning start
As I lie breathing
In the valley of your heart

So fine is the line
So delicate the word
This house of cards could fall at any time
And the brightest light will explode into sound
And become stardust

The dream is dying
Untie your hand
In a moonlit valley
You make your stand

The rules of love
Have made you strong 
A blaze of light
And the dream is gone

So fine is the line
So delicate the word
This house of cards could fall at any time
And the brightest light will explode into sound
And become stardust
Track Name: I Go Out Of My Mind
You are a raging heart
That can’t be tamed or calmed
The last to follow blind
The first to feel alive

I held you up
Your falling down
The rock of ages
I stand my ground

I go out of my mind looking for some paradise
I go out of my head hoping you would find me there
I go out of my mind running down this path of mine

Morning lies up ahead
Borderline must be there

Your reading lines in my hands
Well you and I must be there

I feel it now
Rising strong
No holding back our love’s
Golden sun

I go out of my mind looking for some paradise
I go out of my head hoping you would find me there
I go out of my mind running down this path of mine
Track Name: Wild Ardor
I feel a tension underneath my skin
A soul lit fire somewhere deep within
Your wild horses
I hear no warning sign

Open hearted
Wild ardor in your eyes
Waited so long
A flash of fire in the night

See the lightning in the morning sky
Pray for love but I can only cry
Your wild heartbeat
I feel your warning sign

Open hearted
Wild ardor in your eyes
Waited so long
A flash of fire in the night

There is nothing left
No nobody, no one, can keep me away from this
No one 

Open hearted
Wild ardor in your eyes
Waited so long
A flash of fire in the night
Track Name: The Hunger and the Emptiness
Holding light out on the edge
A crash of thunder rain
Our nightingale is singing softly
Through the howling wind again

I died a thousand times
To tell you I have no fear left
Are we riding blind ?
While this freedom lies under my chest

Now we lie down on the ice
A flash in the midnight sky
Our bodies moving slow tonight
By the winding river, white as snow

I died a thousand times
To tell you I have no fear left
Are we riding blind ?
While this freedom lies under my chest

Firelight so far below
We climb this mountain side
My hunger and your emptiness
Like a bird through the valley, fly

I died a thousand times
To tell you I have no fear left
Are we riding blind ?
While this freedom lies under my chest
I tell you I have no fear left
Track Name: I Hear Your Voice
I hear your voice
Just like a rising river
I have no choice
When will we lie together ?
I hear your voice
I have no choice

Is that my blood you wash from your hands ?
Is this our love ? I can hardly stand
Is this your life in the blink of an eye ?
Hoping to find what you all ready know

The sound of guns in harmony
A silent marching band
The dying voice inside of me
That says you are alive

I hear your voice
Just like a rising river
I have no choice
When will we lie together ?
I hear your voice
I have no choice

Well I’m holding onto nothing
I will keep you in my heart
Your leaving me forever
Never look into your eyes
A change is coming I can feel it in the air
Change is here I will be there in the end

I hear your voice
Just like a rising river
I have no choice
When will we lie together ?
I hear your voice
I have no choice
Track Name: Haunted Life
I came with shadows and I came with claws
I threw the bones and unlocked the doors
I heard the voices and the ghostly sounds
Of a haunted, haunted, haunted life

I took you in and then I took you over
I took you dancing in the carnival lights
You're such a tempting scene as I ride
Through this haunted, haunted, haunted life

Everybody's got a bridge to cross
Everybody's got to pay the cost
You send a message but it comes right back
To your haunted, haunted, haunted life

I came with angels and I came with crosses
I came prepared for a contest of powers
The war inside, I tore out the soul of this
Haunted, haunted, haunted life

I heard the voices
I threw the bones
I came with angels
And burning crosses
I tore out the soul

Where I lay, where I lay
Where I lay in the garden of my soul
Track Name: Fire in the Valley (Reprise)
All we have
Is the rising smoke
Of the life we held
And the love that we feel
