01. Last Purple Sky

Music & lyrics by Lake of Tears
I like to watch things
Like to watch things grow
And to take things slow

I like to take them in
With the starlight
And the moon on a cold night

Oh I'd like to see them stay

Like those days
When we must walk this world alone
As the purple sky turns grey
And the world grows cold

I like to watch them
Like to watch them go
To where they are gone

I like to take them on
To take them all
And to make the small

Oh I'd like to see them stay

Like those days
When we must walk this world alone
As the purple sky turns grey
And the world grows cold

And the world grows like those days
When we must walk this world alone
As the purple sky turns grey
And the world grows cold


02. You Better Breathe While There's Still Time

Music & lyrics by Lake of Tears
It's a new kind of thing
And it comes with the morning
Some new kind of fuzz
You need some new kind of buzz

It's a new way to go
Something cold something low
Some new kind of zoom
Into an old kind of doom

It's the light of the morning still
That thing that keeps you from breathing
You better run to where there's night
To hide from where there's light

You better breathe while there's still time

It's a new kinda thing
And it comes with the morning
Some new kind of fuzz
You need some new kind of buzz

It's the light of the morning still
That thing that keeps you from breathing
You better run to where there's night
To hide from where there's light

You better breathe while there's still time


03. Waiting Counting

Music & lyrics by Lake of Tears
Maybe a star will fall tonight
And maybe just one of my eyes will capture the light
I feel that ease
and though the stars would better be

Oh, count the ten,
Make it start
Make it begin
It makes it through
Makes it in
Moves like a weed in the wind
Moves right in

Maybe a star will guide the ride
And maybe the light in my eye has blinded my sight
I feel that ease
And though the stars would better be
Maybe they could fall asleep

Oh, count the ten,
Make it start
Make it begin
It makes it through
Makes it in
Moves like a weed in the wind
Moves right in

I take it through
I take it in
Make it start
Make it begin
It makes a move
Makes it in
Moves like a weed in the wind
Moves right in


04. Like A Leaf

Music & lyrics by Lake of Tears
A morning breeze through my window
Some sun rays gone strange
There is one on my pillow
Waiting for someone to wake
Waiting for someone to break

Makes me feel just like a leaf

Like a leaf in the breeze
In the morning but still asleep
Slowly falling to the ground Without a sound

Morning breaks in the shadows
And mist from the near lying lake
Making shapes of the willows
Outside my window they wait
Waiting for someone to take

Makes me feel just like a leaf

Like a leaf in the breeze
In the morning but still asleep
Slowly falling to the ground Without a sound

I say please, please believe me
If I would stay
Just for the day
I would always be around

Slowly falling to the ground
Without a sound


05. Children Of The Grey

Music & lyrics by Lake of Tears
Deep within our hearts
Within our minds
Within our souls
Within these, times
We finally found the day,
To take us through the night

Well just as it seems
Morning will come here to stay
It turns into a dream
then morning comes and takes it all away

Children of Grey
We are the Children of Grey
With amount to stay

Deep within the corner of our dreams
Within a life spreading between
We finally made it through
We finally made it in

And now it seems
Morning has come here to stay
With no hope today...
For the Children of the Grey-ay-yeah

Children of Grey
We are the Children of Grey
With amount to stay

Why can't you see, we are the ones not meant to be?
Can't you see, we are the ones not meant to be?
Free...

Children of Grey
We are the Children of Grey
With amount to stay
Not to be the ones in tune
With the Mushroom and The Moon

Children of Grey
(There's no hope here today)
Children of Grey
(There's no hope here today)
Children of Grey
(There's no hope here today)
Children of Grey
(There's no hope here today)
Children of Grey
(There's no hope here today)
Children of Grey
(There's no hope here today)


06. Head On Phantom

Music & lyrics by Christian Silver and Lake of Tears
I think I got into the situation
With the hope of salvation
Far from nothing at all
I thought it was quite a chance
A special circumstance

On my way to heal
See I Feel
And for the scenery I need
I bleed

On my skin, the tears of the evening
The rain of the morning, burning

At the center of the situation
A constant rotation
Endless alteration
At the center of the situation
And there is no salvation

The way I see it
And see I need it
And for the scenery I bleed
I feel it

On my skin, the tears of the evening
The rain of the morning, burning
I feel it on my skin, the tears of the evening
Morning is burning


07. Island Earth

Music & lyrics by Lake of Tears
It seems like a world unreal
When you're caught with a heart of stone
And you wonder just how it feels
How it feels not to feel alone

How it feels not to feel alone

You find the tempo too slow
I know you want more
You find the tempo too slow
I know you wanna to go

You never wonder of what is real
And you walk on the way, you've come
And you feel just how it feels
How it feels not to feel alone

How it feels not to feel alone

You find the tempo too slow
I know you want more
You find the tempo too slow
I know you wanna to go

Oh, when you're alone


08. Planet Of The Penguins

Music & lyrics by Lake of Tears
Light in your eyes, a shine
As you made it on your own
Throughout a world of stone
You made it on your own

Time it is only time, a line
You waited for a while
And now time has passed you by
You lost the light within your eye
Time has passed you by

There are dark days ahead
You wish you were other wheres instead
Waiting for the day you'll be dead
You will always be scared

Light, there is no more light
Now you made it on your own
Into a world of stone


09. Is There a Better Way

Music & lyrics by Alan Lancaster and Francis Rossi
Is there a better way
Is there a better way
Is there a better way ahead
Or just another day

There's got to be a way
To make a better day
I'm gonna find away
To make a better day

You're never gonna be the one to hold me down
You're never gonna be the one to hold me down
There never was a better way with you around
No matter what I do
Do what you got to do
But do it now because the the time
Is running out on you

You've got to find a way
To make a better day
You've got to live and learn
To fight another day

I'm never gonna be the one who put you down
I'm never gonna be the one who put you down
You never know there may be someone in the crowd
There may be someone in the crowd

Is there a better way
Is there a better way
Is there a better way ahead
Or just another day

Maybe you'll never know
A better way to go
I've got a feeling
You don't really want to know

I'll never let you be the one to hold me down
I'll never let you be the one to hold me down
There never was a better way with you around
There never was a better way

I'll never let you be the one to hold me down
I'll never let you be the one to hold me down
There never was a better way with you around
There never was a better way
