Icarus II
In the darkness I rise, long before the dawn
I was dreaming of home and the life I led
I can hear the sound, of the engines roar
And I crave the embrace of my empty bed
Where I'm safe (there I'm safe)

But the call is clear, and the task is set
And my enemies wait in the dark sky
Do they fear the same fear, do they dream like us
Do they long for the day when it's over
And they're safe

We are cruising above the horizon
Neve knowing if we will return
In a moment we'll loose the destruction
And we'll justify all that we burn

Here the air is cold, but my thoughts are clear
And so I'm wondering why I must be here
For the evil that can come, from the heart of a man
Must be answered in kind 'til it disappears
And we're safe

Now we're cruising above the horizon
Neve knowing if we will return
In a moment we'll rain down destruction
And we'll justify all that we burn

Here they come

Dodging all the tracers, sky is full of lead
I can see the pilots' faces
Safety in our numbers, eagles overhead
We are in the sight of aces

Flak, bursting all around
Friends, going down in flames

Now we're hit, it's happened
This is what I feared
Something's telling me my time has come
Though it should be panic, I can feel a peace
Strangely, now I know my purpose...

Hey boys! Hey, get out while you can
I'll try to take us home

I'm going home...back to top
The Coming Dawn (Thanatopsis)
As the dew turns into frost
There is something that I hope will not be lost
The leaves will change, they'll start to fall
I still wonder if it mattered much at all

When my world starts to fade
I can only hope that every choice I made
Will endure, and carry on ... into the coming dawn

The breezes blow, soft clouds drift by
Like some artists' canvas captured in my eye
I am sure, I'm holding fast
I am dying for a lifetime that will last
But when my world, starts to fade
I'm still hoping this foundation that I laid
Will endure, and carry on ... into the coming dawn
We're so close, yet never touch
Can there be a love that changes me this much
I can't see, eyes open wide
Yet I'll never doubt you're standing by my side
When my world, starts to fade
I can only hope that every choice I made
Will endure, and carry on .. into the coming dawnback to top
Myriad
Upon the page, symbolic form,
both a miracle and yet the norm
The functions clear, sum and difference will soon transform

Equations chain, lies in His hand,
Voice authority will dance command
Solution's true, line of measure will divide, expand

Myriad, see the numbers as they're counting down
Thousands and thousands
Myriad, form and function to display the sound

Line upon line every melody points the way
The cycle turns, like Heaven's gate, unknown integers predestinate
Calculating all we must explore, and navigate

Quantities no man can know, no formula to wield
No pages left to turn, no choices but to yieldback to top
Distant Vision
On a night as I lay sleeping, in a dream I saw the shore of a distant land where
Promise lay in wait
And I heard the sound of voices of a million hungry souls
Now it comes to me to lead them to the gate

But I am just a man, not worthy of this plan
With a strength that's not my own,
Imust rise

And I...will bear the light, (and the vision leads me onward)
That blind....men have their sight
I'd sail a thousand seas to make it so

To the Kings I gave the mission, in the hope that they would share
In the joy of setting countless captives free
But the lust for Gold and power, is luring us away
From a calling that began in purity

And 'm still just a man, not worthy of this plan
With a strength that's not my own, I must rise

Now a tempest rages in my heart, as this fever furies on
Soon these islands promise rest and hope, my answers wait beyond their shore
Dream on...

Hungry eyes are standing on the sand, they beckon us to bring the tide
Sovereign hand must hold me now, I plead with you
Be my soloace and my guide... by my side

And I...will walk with you
On the shores of the land ofpromise
That blind... men see you too
I'd sail a thousand seas to make it soback to top
