Track Name: The Chariot (Rise Above the Morn)
Rise above the morn. It's hard enough to wake on just another day (another wedding day). Ask me to perform, and tell me what to sing. This song's another one. This song's another one inside me.

There's a balance to the road I'm steering down. I'm waking up. I'm moving on. There's a balance to the course I'm keeping now. I'm waking up. I'm moving on.

And a talisman of sorts handed by a friend of mine. He said, "You are the chariot personified - the director of a course unidentified." It caught me off guard to see myself there through his eyes when I am so dissatisfied and I am so preoccupied to not know where I'm going in the morning or the night.

There's a balance to the road I'm steering down. I'm waking up. I'm moving on. There's a balance to the course I'm keeping now. I'm waking up. I'm moving on.

Rise above the morning. Rise above the morning. Rise above the morning. I hear the wedding bells play.
Track Name: Strength (The Lion's Den)
Now the violet hour is near. It was you who had the countenance of fear. I won't say I was wrong, cause it's just not clear. It was you who couldn't hold back the tears.

Let this be a cardinal sin when you do it again and again.

I'd throw you to the lion's den. I'd throw you to the lion's den again and again and again and again and again.

Now the day is done. Where were you when all my strength had gone unsung? Maybe tonight, I could be the one. Where were you when all of my love had come undone?

Let this be a cardinal sin when you do it again and again.

I'd throw you to the lion's den. I'd throw you to the lion's den again and again and again and again and again.

Now I dream a spell or two. When I sleep, I sleep to make myself anew. But in a new light, a six-pointed star. I will try to mark my course along its arc.

Let this be a cardinal sin when you do it again and again.

I'd throw you to the lion's den. I'd throw you to the lion's den. I'd throw you to the lion's den. I'd throw you to the lion's den again and again and again and again and again.
Track Name: Hermit (Consider the Phoenician Pt I)
And everything's gone wrong. I'm through with it. Things go wrong. Things go off the tracks and never come back. I'm never going back. Love goes wrong. Love goes off the tracks and back again, but I'm never going back to that, and that is done. Love goes wrong. Love goes off the tracks, and my talisman is long and gone - too gone for us. What's that sound? Another false alarm resounds and sounds again, resounds and sounds again for us.

Alchemical chimera, I put a stop unto it all and shine a lighted lantern from a six-pointed star. And may the waters roll away. And may the fire burn away. And may the waste of all our loves just melt the ice away. I wanted just to let you in and take my soul away. Hurry up, yes please, it's time. Goodnight, to all, and to all, good night. Here comes the violet hour blighted by the shadowlands but guided by a staff that casts away an idle hand - no welcome to indifference when you walk among the lowest dead.

What a violent, all-consuming, impetuous love. I'm only confusing manners and mores with waywards and wards. Judgment defeated. What a violent, all-consuming, impetuous love. I'm only confusing stations and self with boundaries and bounds. Judgment defeated. And balance is cheated. And justice defeated. And justice repeated.
Track Name: Wheel of Fortune (A Dream)
A thousand masses I have heard and I have uttered them, and I will burn a light of wax and oil to you. And if you do not heal me, you will kill me, and you will burn. A change is gonna come.

I am telling you right out that I am only yours. And even if the cold winds blow, I have my love - the love that rains down on my heart. It will warm me to the bone. A change is gonna come.
Track Name: Justice (A Memory)
And the street lamps and the memories fade. It was a long time ago. You were kept warm by the side of my overcoat, and the rain that hung never touched your hair. We were lost in our faded youth, and the last loves that we ever made came and went. Will we ever make love like we used to then?

But now you say it's just us doing our things alone, but it's just us doing your things that you want. And the memories fade in the night time where I still touch you.

And the island and the misty cascade two years ago. The thoughts of you mind I would never know, and the pain that hangs never hit you there. I was lost in my own abuse, and the last time that you ever called came and went. Will I ever know you like I used to then?

But now you say it's just us doing our things alone, but it's just us doing your things that you want. And the memories fade in the night time where I still touch you.

Memory.
Track Name: The Hanged Man (Consider the Phoenician Pt II)
They say that a lover's never really gonna get away, but I never really wanted that anyway. I just want you to stay in my heart til the last card. They say that the pain's never really gonna go away, but I never really wanted that anyway. I just drown it. And look at this ocean rolling over me. I can feel it. And look at this ocean. Watch it cover me. I can feel it.
