Track Name: Prisms of Light and Last Words
Well I hope you know
Just what you.. are in for
The beat.. negates
We communicate
We extract.. your inner core
Your world.. this Veil.. will not.. prevail

Then I have something left to say...

I will never love another one as much as you

"But we've been here before...
Before....."
Track Name: Lucid
Holding on to your sleep, distancing silently
Never knowing how or why it even happened suddenly
Tip-toe through your room, catch the moon when it's full
Wait until the sheep gather they'll make a crowd and shed their wool
Took flight over fields, and the sea is glimmering
Leave the world behind and go onto a place that's heavenly

Away from me...
It always seems to escape from your head
You always seem to move into the right direction

Fly away tonight
Track Name: Rainbowize I
Meet me by the cave, that's what I told you
And with my my heart ablaze
I knew you would find me

A rainbow widow
Rainbow... Window

Your gaze takes me away...
When I hold it
Can you feel the tide pulling me in?
To your ocean.....

Swam past the lake
Nowhere to be found...
Walked through the maze, with no one else around
To find us underground
Is where you said you'd be
And if those Rainbow Eyes don't show
It must be a dream....

Then there we were underwater...
And we didn't need to breath
Then those eyes flashed just like lightning
I don't care if it's surreal

Rainbow... Widow
Rainbow... Windows
Track Name: Spectres
Wait... For it
We're almost ready
To make up our minds

Ghosts...
Out the corner of your eye
Limited by our peripheral vision
And from waking dreams they may arise
Hypnagogic Hallucinations

Wait... For it
We're almost ready
To make up our minds

Spectres
Are they proof of the afterlife?
Nothing but nonsense to the modern skeptic
But are we really just that sure?
Human perception is simply pure?

Wait... For it
We're almost ready
To make up our MIND
Track Name: Different Space
Pushed through a hole
Tear into space
Follow the Phantom to different planes
It's not the first time you've traveled somewhere
Time to find out why you transported here

Flash awake
A different realm awaits
I see it there, beyond the Veil

Life is a fleeting dream...
Filled with great mystery...

Open your eye, to this new atmosphere
Take in the vibes, there's so much to hear
A new way to help the human race
Once I pass into this different space

Flash awake
A different realm awaits
I see it there, beyond the Veil

There....
Track Name: Tesla
Haven't you seen?
There's a new invention here in London
Alternating, Captivating
A miracle to science
You won't believe me until you see

In my life I've had an affliction
Of flashes of light and visions of inspiration
In my dreams there appeared an angel
Bearing resemblance to my mother
Her words were...
You've arrived Nidzo my pride

Haven't you heard?
This genius is secluded in the woods
Mad as a hatter he's a fish out of water
A true disgrace to science
You wont believe be until you see

In my life I've had an affliction
Of flashes of light and visions of inspiration
In my dreams there appeared an angel
Bearing resemblance to my mother
Her words were...
You've arrived Nidzo my pride

Deep woods mad man
He's often understood by the few who disappear
Deep woods mad man
He's just misunderstood
As though the message was not clear

The truth is those who blind with their brilliance
Won't be forgotten.....
Track Name: Visions
Memories float about
The surface of these clouds
A mesmerizing roundabout
It beckons me to seek it out...

Visions
Bright and blinding, stir sensations
Undiscovered
In my core I feel them there
They shout for recognition
They come alive

I see a million lives we lived
Through time and space and distant lands unknown
But something always calls to me
Like a siren song that takes me far away from what I've known
From everything that I've ever known

Visions
Hypnotizing inspirations of two lovers
In a microcosmic dance
With rhythmic intermissions
Where we fly

I see a million lives we lived
Through time and space and distant lands unknown
Another moment caught in time
Will show me just a fraction of the love we shared before
Before!

Our light shines bright
Through these kind eyes
And time slows down this ride
It feels so strange yet somehow so sublime
When hearts align
Track Name: To Dream Awhile
I seem to recall a time when you and I were sitting down and laughing all about
Fluorescent eyes, Magnetic smiles transport me back into those days
When you and I weren't afraid to dream awhile

To dream awhile...
To dream awhile...

Just one more time
Of vivid tales that mesmerized our minds
In time, I know that we can find
The dreams that we left behind

I seem to recall a time when you and I would listen to the music in our hearts
But the harmony we used to know turned silent and refused to show
But maybe, just maybe if we start

To dream awhile...
To dream awhile...
To dream awhile...
To dream........

Yes, this atmosphere is truly wonderful
It brings with it a soothing wave of subtle overtones
And if we somehow find the way to ride this storm I'd say
To ride it on...
And yes this atmosphere is truly wonderful
It brings with it a thrilling range of subtle undertones
And if we ever find a way to bring it back again
I'm sure we will
We will...
