Track Name: Obsolescence Pt.i Sunrise
Freedom is a drifting tide. It beckons you to take a chance
as you gaze at the stars at the waterside.
Do you take the plunge or simply trail your hand
at the water’s edge on the gently shifting sand.

Hope, dream your cares away. The joy of travelling an open road
Under cloudless skies on a sunny day.
Do you grasp the dream held safe within your soul?
Or let it fade like the melting springtime snow.

Faith in a life untold. The innocence of a new born child
Or the vision you hold deep inside your soul.
Can you live the dream complete within your world?
As the sunrise comes let the chosen way unfurl.
Track Name: Obsolescence Pt.ii Evening
Finding and rewinding yourself
re-animate shades of colours lost.
A dusty needle re-coursed in a long forgotten groove.

Living in a minor key on notes in black and white
Long lost colours seep through.
Feel the beat, the beat again!

Finding and rewriting yourself
Turn over to the page that makes more sense
An evening succor to save
For a heart that yearns for more

Leaving from a vantage regained
Relying on an old, old fashioned thought
Resolution restored and the record plays again.

Finding and rewinding etc.
Track Name: Obsolescence Pt.iii Close Your Eyes
I’ve seen the writing on the wall, you won’t hear them call
I’ve seen the writing on the wall, you won’t hear them call
Close your eyes and you won’t see them fall

Fate has dealt you one last lucky hand. You don’t understand
Fate has dealt you one last lucky hand. You don’t understand
Close your eyes and you lose command

Those eyes that burned into your soul, realized their goal
Those eyes that burned into your soul, realized their goal
Close your eyes and you reap what you sow

Denial has left you on your own – a long, long way from home
Denial has left you on your own – a long, long way from home
No need to reach out. No need to shout.

I’ve seen the writing on the wall, you won’t hear them call
I’ve seen the writing on the wall, you won’t hear them call
Close your eyes and you won’t see them fall
Track Name: Obsolescence Pt.iv The Dream
You won’t hear them calling to you,
close your eyes you won’t see them fall
You won’t hear them calling to you,
close your eyes you won’t see them fall

Take the choices, spin them round.
Let them fall to the ground
Look them over what can they say,
jump the broomstick or walk away

You need reason and you need time
to make the choices so entwined
Lack of knowing and lack of truth
will write this story and undo you?

You won’t hear them calling to you,
close your eyes you won’t see them fall
Track Name: Recuerdos
And if you’ve ever noticed
the way I look at you
you’d know I couldn’t care less
if what they say is true
I know I will remember.

And if you’d ever noticed
the things you say and do
you’d recognize the reasons
that draw me back to you
I know I will remember
Track Name: Thank You
There for she there for me
always where we knew.
all those years, memories
gathered as we grew.

Steering here guiding there
not always understood.
In the heart never apart
giving where they could.

And now I say from her and me
for who we be, thank you.
And now I say from her and me
for who we be, thank you.

Cuimhnich air samhraidhean fada’
's geamhraidhean san t-sneachd'.
Thàinig tìm gar gluasad
air adhart a' toirt oirnn fàs.

Thàinig 's dh'fhalbh ar leanabachd
mar cheò air mo shùilean.
An adhar gorm agus glas
cho soilleir gach bliadhna.

And now I say from her and me
for who we be, thank you.
And now I say from her and me
for who we be, thank you.

And today what can I say
the growing still goes on.
Frustrations here expressions there
thankful for the song.

Children new blessing you
memories are made.
Older still, as we will
but loving will not fade.

And now I say from her and me
for who we be, thank you.
And now I say from her and me
for who we be, thank you

And now I say from her and me
for who we be, thank you.
And now I say from her and me
for who we be, thank you
Track Name: Unconditional
You ran before you could walk
Opinions before you could talk
The dreaming was out of hand
The link that broke the chain
Corrupted again and again
The reasons always so very clear

Connect the pieces they stole
To make the picture a whole
Reclaiming to recognize
White noise tear it up
Extremes to kill the hurt
Shatter the circle
The reasons so very clear

To take the light from the shade
Distil the love from the hate
Anger neutralized
To find your way back home
To put an end to the drone
The voices understood

No longer reasons to hide
To fill the dark space inside
Each moment day on day
A new way rolling in
Detached from all that’s been holding you under
But will you let it go

Searching the skyline
Seeing above a haze of vagueness
Contagious, a flavour best left untasted
There is a poison talking in tongues
Seeping through your bloodstream
Why do you pay attention?

You! Want! More!
Unconditional

Stumble, straighten – will you fall
Below the line of your own expectations
To where you recognize
Hiding in the shadows of your doubts
Denying the chances
You hold in your hands - understanding

You! Want! More!
Unconditional

Unconditional
Unconditional

Meeting the facts of your life
Face to face and knowing who you are
Strangeness, shocks your core
When you take hold - remould
The shape of your own expectations
To where – you recognize.

You! Want! More!
Unconditional

You ran before you could walk
Opinions before you could talk

You ran. You ran.
You ran. You ran.
Track Name: The Drowning
It's the deepest night, street lights are bright
and the rain pours down, you can't sleep you can't hide.
Rattling on your window pane is a wind that laughs one more time.
Here we go again.

And the tears begin, and you cannot swim.

You gave the same old lies about needing some time
To fix your hair - oh, your broken hair.
But when you turned around you were the only one there
and the wind laughs one more time here we go again.

And the tears begin, and you cannot swim.

Are things are getting clear as the clock changes year
and the candle's burning low - not bad as metaphors go.
Do you want to cry in the night, miles away from the lights burning bright
Or will the wind laugh one more time here we go again.

And the tears begin, and you cannot swim.
