Woz Absolutely lush progressive rock, delightful vocals, great musical vision expertly crafted, reminiscent of the best of the 70's, but given a fresh feel. Production and mixing values are excellent. Quite simply a delicious meal! Buy it! Devour it!

Track Name: Somnambulists
Another log rolls from the fire
As hours drift away
A soft goodbye that cracks the sky
And hatches night from day

A subtle tone
Takes your own
You follow
Failing seams
In waking dreams
Into your head

These bitter hands relieve their hold
Drawn in by foreign flames
This time we steal and warmth we feel
A scene played out in frames

A subtle tone
Takes your own
You follow
Failing seams
In waking dreams
Into your head

Another tone
You've made your own
To follow
Open seams
In waking dreams
Into your head

The priest split his eyes in a fit of cold lies
When he found his true sight in his sleep
And the mourners they gathered where shipyards were shattered
Condemning his mind to the deep

So the bell that was tolled dragged the young from the old
For a bargain struck far too steep
Now dig in those heels if you value what's real
These illusions are ours to keep

The beggar prince took his throne
And spoke of times he tried
And as the castle tumbled down
His audience arrived
Track Name: Escapism
I can't quite shake this feeling
When the walls are closing in
Can't seem to remember why
Or how it came to be this way
I just know that I've got to get away

While these days pass me by
Somewhere else I can't describe
Waiting for me to return
And next time I'm ready to stay
I just know that I've got to get away

Will you take me now
We could never look back again
We could close our minds, forget all our friends
And fall into their traps once more
Out that door
No hero will leap from the screen
Not when it falls back onto you and me
But somehow we'll find our own way
To escape

No bringing me back this time
Can't convince me I'm not right
Tell me I need to get clean
Or just let this body decay
But you can't always get it your own way

Will you take me now
We could never look back again
We could close our minds, forget all our friends
And fall into their traps once more
Out that door
No hero will leap from the screen
Not when it falls back onto you and me
But somehow we'll find our own way
To escape
Track Name: The Silver Moon
Out on the bridge no one waits
No one
No one, no one waits
Under the sky no one waits
No one
No one, no one waits
The people of the night closing in about their targets
Behind their locked doors they will shudder and whisper for
Another dream

Picture this for a while
Adrift on vapour tides
Show me what's outside your window

Painted colours fade into disarray
Summer left us with an autumn day
Shadowing the light of a burning youth
Tell me everything
When it's too late for the truth to be heard

Before we fall we've got to fly
Melting wax wings up in the sky
And far too young to die
Twenty seven feels alive
But I won't be the first of us to go
Descending to the ground below
Underneath the silver moon
Another one that's gone too soon

River runs wild
And leads us out to the sea
Where cold winds blow by
They're taking me to what I need

Out on the bridge no one waits
No one
No one, no one waits
Under the sky no one waits
No one
No one, no one waits
The people of the night closing in about their targets
Behind their locked doors they will shudder and whisper for
Another dream

Before we fall we've got to fly
Melting wax wings up in the sky
And far too young to die
Twenty seven feels alive
But I won't be the first of us to go
Descending to the ground below
Underneath the silver moon
Another one that's gone too soon
Track Name: Three Minutes to Midnight
Building
Up brick by brick
There's no release
Alone
He found his peace

Preacher
Caught in the storm
Blessing these walls
Patience
The morning calls

Screaming
Scriptures
Catatonic
Laid in this tomb with no sleep

Bleeding
Left in the darkness
Clinging to vultures
They've taken
All he's got
The life he lost
Upon sickly wings
Lifted from halos
A risen prince
Indifferent
He sings
For the sun
Track Name: Horizons
Only when you have seen
The first light of dawn
Rising like before

Only when you can feel
The rush of the wind
Wrapping around you like it did before

A subtle tone
Has changed your world
You're older

Only when you have known
What's there all along
The constellations crowning everyone

A subtle tone
Has changed your world
You're older

Another tone
Has changed your world
Forever

The moment's gone
But always there
In time

Everything you told me
And everything you say
Changes meaning
When you think your work is done
Life no longer on the run
Another calling
And outside there's a new day dawning
