Track Name: Daffodil
Time to spare and time to kill
Choking on that bitter pill
Wishing that you changed your will
Hate you, but I love you still

Sloppy food that makes you ill
Raven on your window sill
Bet you love the daffodil
Sun goes down don’t catch a chill


Make a mess then in the hoist
Cordial to keep you moist
Crocodile in floods of tears
Cough it up for all the years

Greedy man he went to jail
Freedom now but old and frail
Still alive but looking pale
Cross the street just like a snail

Silly fool now falls asleep
Prays to God his soul to keep
To the pyre just watch them weep

Nurse, nurse you hear him cry
Will that bastard never die
But she’s got something up her sleeve
And a tangled web to weave

Doctors orders and she’s keen
A stronger dose of sweet morphine
Enough to wilt the daffodil
Hate you, hate you, hate you, but I love you still
Track Name: Lampedusa
Distant fires
Pushed through the desert lands
Infidel in the promise land

All were dreaming
Of distant shores
Poor forsaken and wretched souls

Trusted promises of
Thieves and liars
Safe passage to the land of your dreams

Wave goodbye to
Everything you’ve known
No longer a place to call home

Small boat
Listing over
Not a living soul for a hundred miles or more

All singing out as the water rushed in
Prayers unanswered, they just made a din

Washing over and over
As-Salaam-Alaikum

Washing over and over
500 souls lost to the sea

Oh the ocean floor
Forever more
500 souls lost to the sea

Lampedusa bound
Never to be found
500 souls lost to the sea...
Track Name: Thieves of Damietta
Now you rest your weary head
Tucked inside your ocean bed
I don’t know
Where you are
Or if you see the same star
Curse the thieves of Damietta

I recall the words you said
Echoes all around my head
I won’t rest, I can’t sleep,
Knowing you are out there still and
Curse the thieves of Damietta

Foolish dreaming of the west
TV tells you it’s the best
There’s no streets, paved with gold
Just constant rain that makes you old
Curse the thieves of Damietta

I had to tell you so
I told you not to go
But now I understand
But I feared for what they planned
Something deep inside
Fills my heart with pride

Shadows of the minaret
Fall across the rubble where
You once lived with your wife
Curse the thieves of Damietta
Track Name: Eclipsing Lyra
Now I cradle your head
& lay you down to sleep in your bed
Close your eyes now
A new horizon
Lays before you here

Eclipsing Lyra
Climbing high above the sky
Out of my reach
Above the beach I see your beacon fires

Don’t forget me
Just protect me
And keep me free from harm
Dolorosa
Never been closer
Into her open arms

Eclipsing Lyra
Climbing high above the sky
Out of my reach
Beyond the beach your beacon fire

Oh...Lyra

Give and take, but don’t take Lyra, Lyra
Track Name: One
Flying high you can see it all
Looking down not afraid to fall
But the air is thin and you can’t breathe
So just come down and breathe with me

Such a lonely place to be
Smothered and warm or cold and free
Give it time and then you’ll see
Just come down and stay with me

I’ll stand up 10 feet tall
Promise I won’t let you fall
I’ll be waiting for the day to come
You can be my number one

Autumn come and the harvest fail
Once famous now no one can tell
November rain and no time to dwell
Nice and warm inside this shell

Photo flashes are oh so bright
They won’t keep you warm at night
In their glow you turn and take flight
So just come down be with me


I’ll stand up 10 feet tall
Promise I won’t let you fall
I’ll be waiting for the day to come
You can be my number one

I’ll stand up 10 feet tall
Promise I won’t let you fall
I’ll be waiting for the day to come
You can be my number one
