Track Name: Muddy Diamonds
"He's walking on his knees,
I heard he'll never this place.
And her eyes withhold the world,
(Prize and fortune of the brave),
I fall - and you dig,
Then save me when I'm graced,

It never hurts.
Never leave this place, never leave...

And you turn me on...

You never leave and it never hurts...

And you turn me on...
Track Name: Shrontle
"No one know me
Cold and ghostly
Sail away and blur my face
Hide away from all of this.
Folding slowly
Hold me, lonely
Say the words and I am safe
Hide away another day with you

You've stolen every piece
And now all the eyes on you.
You build them new
The way you do
And there's always something I could say to you
I love the way you build them new

Falling, calling
Jesus loving
A Polish girl who went away
Still falling, calling
Maybe dying
Freedom at the end of the day
I wondered what it was you wanted

I wonder what it was you wanted
What it was you wanted was freedom at the end of the day"
Track Name: Star Shine Bright
"People go where their mind glows,
Star shine bright, star shine bright
Feeling love where the heart flows
Star shine bright,
But stop
Take a look at all this shit we've created
What is all this shit?
Come on people now
March against this shit
Marketing bastards, corporate arses,
Industrial pricks, imperialists.
No more lies.
To the shit that blocks your eyes

Come on people now
Stand against this shit
Neo-nazis, fascist parties,
Gangs with guns, rapist scum
No more lies
To the shit that blocks your eyes

Come on people now fight against this shit
Religious extremists and fundamentalists
Material junkies, media phonies
No more lies
To the shit that blocks your eyes

No more lies
Star shine bright
Open your eyes
Star shine bright
Track Name: Put Away
Lyrics, music & all vocals + instruments: Adam khangura

"There was always so much more for you to see
Never found the time
Free to dance when backs are turned
We journeyed on the winding path

And now there's nothing that you recognise
Nothing left that's yours

Left out in the rain...

And you can say its anger
You can take the higher ground
You never saw the dancing
You never turned around

And now there's nothing left you recognise
There's nothing left that's yours

You put us all away"
Track Name: Soul On Ice
"Safest arms I wallow in you, my friend
We'll teach them all about themselves
And this song, it says goodbye, my friend
I've given you all you asked for.
It's seeded in me
And for the things you seek
I give you this piece of me
It's all I am

And a river flows eastwards over horizons
It goes on and on
And we spent many moonlights
Broken and hiding
Until we learnt to love alone

And now we love alone

Craven desire
It tempers the meek in me
I guess that I need this worry
Tear it apart just to bring it together
Stretch me to my breaking point
So I grow
And I grow on my own
And I watch you growing alone

And a river flows eastwards over horizons
It goes on and on
And we spent many moonlights
Broken and hiding
Until we learnt to love alone
And now we love alone
Track Name: Matryoshka
"All the dusty places I found you
The snapshots seem to break me clean in two
Illusion made a change with innocence confused
Sailing with a spy on board
he's watching you
And shaping me...

Another matryoshka...

The graveyard holds the heroes of fallen youth
Tells stories of their journey and wars that claimed their truth
The soul that's left reclaims from the wasteland that remains
Sailing with a spy on board
We're one in the same
Shaping you
Watching me...

Another matryoshka inside my matryoshka

And while the monsters roam
We'll keep you unknown
In a dreamless sleep
Of lost memory
Track Name: The Great Yonder
Lyrics: T.H. Berendt
Music, Vocals, Instruments: A.K.S. Khangura

"Rudy went riding in the sun baked winter
Lucy thought she was the one
Rudy packed a man in the gold summer
Judy thought she was the one
I said "rudy boy, you're so much cooler
Than any Christian
And Jesus ain't got a pretty picture of all you gone and done"

Well don't you wanna see the rain beyond December?
Well he just laughed and ran on

Here they come the marching band
Smoking, toking, crazy tanned
Just like flowers in the spring
They know no suffering

Bring it on... Home to me

Rudy sat in wonder of the great yonder
Debbie thought she was the one
Rudy played a tune and followed right through
Gaby thought she was the one
I said rudy boy you're so much taller
Than any mount Zion
And Moses ain't got a petty tablet
On all you gone and done

Don't you wanna see the morning after?
He just smiled and ran on

Here they come the marching band
Smoking, toking, crazy tanned
Doubling on the tunes they sing
For the purity of existence

Bring it on... Home to me

Here they come..."
Track Name: Break The Machine
"So dark underneath the veil
Blind to all the sorcery
Creeping every place you know
It's more in what you feel than what you see

Fool me on...

And now it's all the same
The veil fell and no one saw your face
Too busy with the maze
No eyes are seeing straight

Fool me on..

All of this will burn
When we break the machine

Fool me on.."
Track Name: Fuort
So far away...
Track Name: The Master's Song

"Go let it be down
Don't talk like you know how
Master is a coming in the town
Sugar dropping, ladies shopping
At the station coming, going
Groups are watching, ships are rolling
Places lost and mistaken
Cats are marching big and glowing
Afraid of nothing

My love, my love...
Times like this are never the same
Times like this are ready for a change
Lady of night, man of day
Babies are growing, the old are dying
My love, my love...

Take the baton, cross the dungeon
Lead the man to salvation
Rains are falling, heads are turning
Master's got them, no one's running
All confused, all bemused
Caught behind the daily news
Cats are marching big and glowing
Afraid of nothing

My love, my love...
Times like this are never the same
Times like this are ready for a change
Lady of night, man of day
Babies are growing, the old are dying
My love, my love....

When it all goes down
The moon it shines on town
Happy, smiling, letting go
The master's leaving Moscow
Blood is pouring, death is yawning
Cats are marching big and glowing
All that's left is you, my love

My love, my love...
Track Name: Biscuits & Tea
"Secrets held in mind
She told him stories of a better man
She told him things she wished might slip him by
Cos she's holding a golden egg
You'll never reach but you're free to try
This open wound is howling at the moon tonight

All she needs is biscuits and tea...

Well I guess that means that he's a troll and she's a princess lady
He's howling at the moon tonight
And she's waiting for her prince to come the way that she foretold it
She's howling at the moon tonight

Freedom held in mind
He found it in simple things
She seeks but never finds
Cos he's holding nothing
He never seeks or asks it why
She always asked him why

They're howling at the wind...

All she needs is biscuits and tea..

Well I guess that means that he's a troll and she's a princess lady
He's howling at the moon tonight
And she's waiting for her prince to come the way that she foretold it
She's howling at the moon tonight"
Track Name: Climb
"A journey to a bed of roses
Where the crowds can watch them grow
With all the unknown faces
All the love they've got to show
Well it's all the way you make it
Just take my hand and come
I saw that there were places we could go and see the sun

And there's always time...
And we climb...

All we said was true forgotten
There's no learning to be done
I am is and be forever
No one holds me when I run
All around is not enough
I am far away from here
It's a sentimental felling
But experience is clear

And there's always time
And we climb"
Track Name: Bones
"Many a heart froze on a cold night's eve
Waiting in vain to find love
'It's all what you make it' whispers the breeze
Stars don't just shine from above
Sorrow runs cold in the broken heart
In the name of youth the lovers embrace
Rivers swell as the pain departs
And the stars shine just the same

Mark out the grave with a trail of tears
Sail away on the blood that flows
Alone and afraid we see the dream that dies
Watched by starlight through the night

Cry out my love, cry out
Time and tide wait for all to die
In the end, all is denied

Ride on and shine on...
Someone, somewhere sees stars shine on

Flowers went to rot in the woods at night
Cold air froze the tears that fell
Youth marches lonely into the fight
Only starlight knows them well
Sorrow runs cold in the fields of war
In the name of youth the soldiers will wage
Rivers swell as the pain is thawed
And the stars shine just the same

The battles long won but not forgotten
Fables keep the memory alive
The flowers sit at the graves and cry
Watched by starlight through the night

Cry out my love, cry out...
Time and tide wait for all to die
In the end all is denied

Ride on and shine on...
Someone, somewhere see stars shine on"
Track Name: Tuesday Afternoon Lament
"Maybe the trees are growing in the orchard of the valley
Loosing the jellybeans from market stalls in their dreams
Danger can it be, they misunderstand every word you speak
Unrelenting lies flow on by like butterflies

Baby it's true
Love is gonna find you...

Orange trees, Japanese
Flexibility with ease
Mushroom chomping chimpanzees
Love is gonna find you...

Baby it's true
Love is gonna find you...

It pays to be confused
So that you remain amused
By all the things you choose
Listen to what feels right
There's no need to fight
The end is nigh

Scary the lions are roaming in the shadow of the prairies
Tearing allusion from all the things now undone
Rarer than all this the self perceived individualism
Of men who try to lead the world into their minds
Lately the pearls are forming in the debris of the city
Churning the crustaceans that really look like supermen
Braver than denial the cynic toys with life as a child
Like the man who thrived carving a life playing songs all through the night
He's singing

Baby it's true, love is gonna find you..."
