THE PAST (R. Deaton)

I DON'T KNOW THIS PLACE I AM, IT SEEMS TO BE A DIFFERENT WORLD.  WHERE'S THE DOORWAY TO MY LAND? MAN IS BEAST AND BEAST IS KING, AND THERE'S JUST NOT ANYTHING.  I CANNOT ESCAPE THE PAST...

IT'S A DIFFERENT TIME IN SPACE, PREHISTORIC HUMAN RACE. QUESTIONS LIE IN HISTORY?  MY EXISTENCE TURNS SURREAL, HESITATION STARTS TO BUILD.  I CANNOT ESCAPE THE PAST...

YOU AND I ARE A MILLION YEARS APART. LIVE OR DIE, I WILL KEEP YOU IN MY HEART.  WILL I LEAVE HERE, OR HAVE I COME TO FAR?

IN THE DISTANCE I CAN SEE COSMIC DOORWAY WAITING FOR ME , WHAT AWAITS BEYOND THE PAST?

 

  

 

 

THE FUTURE (R. Deaton/D. Foshee)

1) BUILDINGS HIGH AS ANY MOUNTAIN,  SHIPS THAT NAVIGATE THE STARS.  BUT SOMETHING HERE IS SADLY MISSING AS PEOPLE TRY TO HIDE THEIR SCARS. 

IN THIS LAND OF FUTURE PLACES,  HOLLOW EYES AND EMPTY FACES.  THOUGH I’VE BEEN HERE FOR AWHILE,  IT SEEMS TO ME I HAVEN’T SEEN A SMILE… 

“YOU ARE THE ONE,” SAID THE STRANGE OLD MAN AS HE WANDERS UP TO ME. “YOU COULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE, BUT YOU WERE TOO BUSY TO SEE!” 

2) I SEE THE BOY AND FEEL AN ANGER,  HURT AND ANGUISH PIERCE HIS HEART.  THE FUTURE’S NOT WHAT I IMAGINED,  WHY’D THE FUTURE FALL APART?  THE HOLLOW EYES AND EMPTY FACES,  -POWDER KEG- THE TIME CLOCK RACES. IN THE CARDS THE OLD MAN SWORE HE SAW THE CHOSEN ONE COME THROUGH THE DOOR… 

 “YOU ARE THE ONE,” CRIED THE STRANGE OLD MAN AS HE WANDERS UP TO ME.  YOU COULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE, BUT YOU WERE TOO BUSY TO SEE!” 

3) I SEE MYSELF FOR MY TRUE COLORS, THE BOY BECKONS ME WITH DESPERATE EYES.  WORN SHOES, HIS CLOTHES ARE TATTERED, HANGS HIS HEAD AND STARTS TO CRY.  CROSS-ROADS OF TRUE DECISION, WELL AWARE OF COSMIC VISION.  LOOKING AT THE TOXIC SKY, I TURN MY HEAD AS I JUST WALK BY… 

“YOU ARE THE ONE,” PLEADS THE SAD OLD MAN AS THE DOOR COMES INTO VIEW.  “YOU’LL HAVE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.”  KNOW NOW WHAT I MUST DO!

 

THE PRESENT (R. Deaton/D. Foshee)

1) WALKING DOWN THE STREET, WITH THE HEAT OF THE DAY ON MY BROW. BATTLE PLAN COMPLETE, THE FUTURE HANGS ON WHAT I DO NOW. 

I SEE THE BOY AGAIN, JUST THE SAME AS HE WAS THE LAST TIME. BATTLES YET TO WIN, WAR IS WAGED IN THE HEARTS AND IN MINDS. 

HE CAME IN THROUGH THE DOOR UNHEEDED, DISREGARDING WHAT PROCEEDED. BRINGING ONLY WHAT WAS NEEDED, SET TO CHANGE THE WORLD, 

HE BROUGHT THE PRESENT… HE BROUGHT THE PRESENT 

2) GAZING AT THE LAND, HE LOOKS AS IF HE’S SEEN THE LAST SIGN, REACHING OUT MY HAND, HE PUTS HIS TINY PALM WITHIN MINE. 

HE LOOKS AT ME WITH EYES OF WONDER, SET TO CURE SOCIETAL BLUNDER. TIME AND SPACE WILL TEAR ASUNDER NOW’S THE TIME FOR CHANGE AND 

MEND THE PRESENT… MEND THE PRESENT. 

3) THE BOY BEGINS TO CHANGE INTO THE SHAPE OF THE OLD ONE. AS HE STARTS TO FADE, HE LOOKS AT ME AND SAYS, “WELL DONE!” 

YOU MUST PROTECT WHAT IS TOMORROW, ONCE DESTROYED, YOU CANNOT BORROW. LOST TODAY, THE FUTURE’S SORROW. WHEN IT COMES TO CHANGE, 

WE CHANGE THE PRESENT… WE CHANGE THE PRESENT… WE CHANGE THE PRESENT...

SILENT STONE (R. Deaton)

EVERY LANGUAGE HAS ITS SECRETS, WORDS WITHOUT A NAME.  THOUGHIT LOOKS FAMILIAR, MEANING'S NOT THE SAME

ANCIENT CULTURE PHRASES, UNKNOWN TO OTHER LANDS.  ANCIENT PEOPLE'S WORDS SCATTER LIKE THE SAND.

ALONE IN ISOLATION, COUNTLESS EONS SPANNED.  ACCIDENTAL EXCAVATION, ONE STONE IN EGYPT SAND.

SILENT WHISPERS, SILENT STONE...

 DIDN'T KNOW THAT THEY HAD FOUND IN THE HOT EGYPTIAN SAND.  HIDING IN THE UNKNOWN SIGNS THE KEY TO FOREIGN LANDS.

AS THE PUZZLE PIECES FELL, THE MYSTERY SOLVED.  OPEN UNDERSTANDING, CRYPTIC TEXT DISSOLVE.

NO MORE ISOLATION, ALL SECRETS KNOWN.  DECIPHERED ANCIENT LANGUAGE, ALL SECRETS SHOWN.

SILENT WHISPERS, SILENT STONE. ANCIENT MESSAGE ON AN ANCIENT STONE

SILENT WHISPERS, SILENT STONE. TIMELESS MESSAGE ON AN ANCIENT STONE...

FADE AWAY (R. Deaton)

1) RESTLESS WINDS...BLOWING NEW SEEDS OF CHANGE. RESTLESS HEARTS...CHASING DREAMS OUT OF RANGE.

RESTLESS SOULS...CROSSING EONS OF TIME.  SEARCHING ALONE...SEEKING PERFECT ALIGN.

CHORUS: OUT OF TIME...OUT OF PLACE.  HOMEWARD BOUND WITHOUT A TRACE.DESTINY...MYSTERIES SOFTLY EMBRACE AND FADE AWAY.

2) RECOVERY...FROM THE PAIN THAT WE BEAR.  DISCOVERY...FROM THE PATH THAT WE SHARE.

CHORUS: OUT OF TIME...OUT OF PLACE.  HOMEWARD BOUND WITHOUT A TRACE. DESTINY...MYSTERIES SOFTLY EMBRACE AND FADE AWAY. SOFTLY EMBRACE AND FADE AWAY.

3) CLARITY...AS THE LIGHT SHINES THE WAY.  DESTINY...WILL UNFOLD AND FADE AWAY...FADE AWAY...FADE AWAY...

 

VOICE OF FREEDOM (R. Deaton)

1) THE NIGHT IS HOT, THE TEMPERATURE'S RISING.  THE TALK OF WAR IS NOT SURPRISING.

YOU'RE STARE IS COLD, YOUR HEART UNYIELDING.  INSTEAD OF BURNING BRIDGES, WE SHOULD BE BUILDING.

2) LOVE FAILS, WITH WARNINGS UNHEEDED.  THE POINT OF NO RETURN EXCEEDED.

YOUR TOUCH IS COLD, SO UNAPPEALING.  WHAT'S LEFT OF ME YOU'LL JUST BE STEALING. 

CHORUS:  VOICES MATTER, VOICES CHANGE.  VOICES HEAL AND REARRANGE.  VOICE OF FREEDOM NEVER SWAYS, VOICE OF FREEDOM NEVER PLAYS...

REPEAT CHORUS
