Track Name: To Yield
To Yield

Can't slow down
Can't relate
Sure ain't got time to wait
No poet's son
No setting sun
Hope it's not too late
A blue-er sea
A brighter she
Got me on the run
A loveless whore
A frightening bore
I am the one

To whom it might be of some interest
Rome wasn't build to last

Can't hold up
Can't pretend
To be the same again
To laugh about
To scream and shout
But I really became another man
There's no way around
The sweetest sound
Of waves crushing on the shore
A willing slave
A soul to save
That's me for sure

To whom it might be of some interest
Rome wasn't build to last
To whom it might be of some concern
There's really nothing here that you could learn

To yearn
To yield
To give
To live
To break
To forsake
To grieve
To leave
To hope
To win
To spin
Out of control

Hidden from the anger of angels
Hidden among the stones in the field
Soon it's time to lose all your inhibitions
Soon it's time to yield and simply stop
Track Name: Travelling Circus Of Oklahoma
Travelling circus of Oklahoma (K.'s America)

Travelling circus of Oklohoma
Everybody's welcome the poster said
Everybody can be an artist
I guess nobody wants to be an artist
But everybody wants to get paid for a job

The welcoming angels blowing their horns
Welcoming angels show you where you belong

With no more than primary school in a foreign school
They hired me as an technical worker
Gave me a real good meal
Well I took that train
Riding down south

The welcoming angels blowing their horns
Welcoming angels show you where you belong

Don't care about your past
Don't care about your name
Don't care where you headed
Don't care if your lost

Riding for two days and nights
Riding thru imaginary America
America America America
Where I belong
Coming Home
Track Name: Sleepless Moon
Sleepless Moon

sleepless moon
woke up too soon
dress made of clouds
dancing 'round and 'round

young girl so white and lost
your dance comes at a cost
the whispers of autumn leaves
the laments of lovers grief

o tireless moon
always leaves too soon
swirling 'round and 'round
your feet make no sound

young girl so white and lost
your dance comes at a cost
the whispers of autumn leaves
the laments of lovers grief

In the black velvet room
filled with stars
she shines so bright
waking a desire beyond wrong or right
