Track Name: These Mountains We Reach
the sound of your voice
is just enough to make it clear
the fog on the seas
the misty pastures
before me

what a relief!
(is this comfort)

each breath is a song
a song so short and fleeting
the fall of each leaf
these mountains we reach

what a relief!
(is this comfort)
Track Name: True Happiness
terror strikes, complacently
my flooded house floats on the sea
beneath each face is shallow needs
above all hate is love

weapons built and then destroyed
cultures built just to collide
men born just to kill
men taught just to die

true happiness is hard to see
it seems that men, they don't believe
that there is more, there is more
and i know that it's true

the only wealth is in your grave
the only wealth is in your grave
the only god is loving you
the only god is loving you

true happiness is hard to see
it seems that men, they don't believe
that there is more, there is more
and i know that it's true
Track Name: If You Listen
Often wonder comes
when it's quiet
and you listen to its song
It was there all along

A true and honest life
waits with each passing breeze
a real and loving heart
starts with watching what you see

The pulse of life is there if you listen
Track Name: A Better World
the path that I have chosen
it needs no words
the best that I have followed
they had no worth

I believe
cities destroyed by our waking dreams
panic created by a ripple in the sea
I will see
horror is another strategic tool
violence is another word for silence
I believe
youth was stolen when they took us as they pleased
youth was stolen when we pleaded at their knees
I will see
why can't you answer any of our prayers?
why is your answer silence?

sight is just a weapon
sent to stray
truth is just a message
their words can't claim

I believe
buried in the backyard where all the truth goes
burned in the open when all but truth knows
I will see
sight is the weapon cleverly deceived
sight is the weapon of silence
I believe
facts are sound but disputed anyway
truth is a message power can't claim
I will see
vision is treason and justice is hate
wisdom is a vision that's silenced

buried in the open
the secrets wait
yonder I hear laugher
it comes my way

I believe
freely we laugh and love through every day
freely we live where power can't stray
I will see
wealth is a weapon born by its chains
wealth is a word for silent
I believe
freely we laugh and love through every day
freely we live where power can't stray
I will see
wealth is a weapon borne by its chains
wealth is a word for silent
I believe
I can see
Track Name: As The Ocean
We're all part
Of one and the same
A wave of life
Set on its way

I am free
As The Ocean
I am free
As The Ocean

We are one
A part of each other
I am yours
And no other

We are free
As The Ocean
We are free
As The Ocean

It may be dark
but not for long
It may be dark
but not for long

I see the dawn
I feel it coming
I see the dawn
I feel it coming
Track Name: I'd Rather Believe In Life
I'd rather try and fail
than sit inside all day
in fear of what I don't know

I'd rather fall in love
than die of a broken heart
in fear of all I can't control

I'd rather hold the stars
I'd rather trust my heart
I'd rather believe in life

Why live in shadows when
you can live your life in light?
Why live in shadows when
you can live your life in light?

I'd rather live than die
I'd rather care than not
I'd rather believe in life
