Touch Lyrics

Out of the Shadows

Crouching down inside a deep rvine
Those angry cries pass quickly by-can't be seen
So many ways spent hiding in so many undone plans
Forgetting what it's like to fight when no one understands

Close call in the shadows
There's an end to the dark, there is one out there

All those feelings pain and anger flood back one by one
They must be just around the bend they always come
At night as I lay sleeping they come to me in herds
Their lies remain the dreams the same its only floating words

Close call there in the shadows
There's an end to the dark 'cause there is one out there
No one but me....

The hours pass so slowly the life's slipping out of me
No ways the right way is there a way out for me
My life's slipping out...

The night is done the bright light's glare and now the time is come
Held back in my pitied world where everything's undone
A cold wind blows right through me I'm made a hollow shell
There's nothing left just ash remains enrich the soil

Someone calls there in the shadows no soul no soul...
There's an end to the dark cause there's someone out there
Someone like me...

The hours pass so slowly the life's slipping out of me
No way's the right way is there a way out for me
There must be a way out for me...


Vox

In the desert of my dreams I saw you there
And I'm walking towards the water steaming body cold and bare
But your words cut loose the fires and you left my soul to bleed
And the pair that's in your death's receiving me has got me scared

Oh why?

Through your eyes the strains of battle like a brooding storm
Your up and down these pristine velvet walls like focus never forms
My wake is getting wider and my eyes are drawn astray
Neaar you now a vague deception of a dying day

Oh why?

I fill into the water and once more I turn to you
and the crowds were standing staring faceless cutting off my view
They start to simply flail their bodies in  twisted mime
And I'm lost inside this tangled web in which I'm lain
You're gone and I'm lost inside this tangled entwined
Web in which I'm lain entwined

Oh why?


Strange World

We walk without a sound across the barren landscape
Your eyes are twisted down to a dew entrailed ground
We watch the stars as they slowly fade away and in the
Clearing sky I see a cold stone face of morning setting in on me

It's a strange world
It's a very strange world that leaves me
Holding on to nothing when there's nothing left to lose

Your touch is cold and damp the devil's in your eyes
I wonder why I always let you led me on this way
Cause you see only what you want to see-you feel
Only what you want to and I am on the outside of your strange world

It's a strange world
It's a very strange world that leaves me
Holding on to nothing when there's nothing left to lose

We're walking hand in hand we'll wlk this way forever
Our eyes have risen to the water's edge watching with the tides
The stars hve fallen to another day and the sun warms our pat to
Find the reasons leave us far behind in our strange world

It's a strange world
It's a very strange world that leaves me
Holding on to nothing when there's nothing left to lose


Trust

Somewhere deep inside me I hold a picture of a time long gone
A time of ease and simple pleasures
And days in shadows not so long
Now with my mind I'm struggling holding on to
Listen to the fragments of my thoughts what I believe
That years are broken and deceived

Cause I don't know the way he said "I can take you there,
I can show you places where our time has had no wear
And as we walked the plains the skies they
Opened wide reflecting all the shame for what's been lost inside us 

It's a day in the life
In my mind I've seen it all
Sometime soon for all to see
The walls are slowly breaking downI
n my mind I've seen it all
And someday we'll be free

We're searching for a message or so I thought but so it
Seems the ignorance in the myths of others are easier to redeem
I've never questioned the answers given to find
The faith that's been lost within 'cause where I lay my
Trust in others where it lies the ground is this

'Cause I don't know the way he said "I can take you there
I can show you places where even time has had no wear"
And as we wlk the plains the skies they opened wide
Revealing all the shame for what's been lost inside us all

It's a day in the life
In my mind I've seen it all
Sometime soon for all to see
The walls are slowly breaking down
In my mind I've seen it all
And someday we'll be free

I know you say you love me if what you say
Is true so tell me something that's not deceiving
'Cause I wouldn't lie to you

It's a day in the life
In my mind I've seen it all
Sometime soon for all to see
The walls are slowly breaking downI
n my mind I've seen it all
And someday we'll be free

Steaming

You're always waiting on the tide it's time you decide
I've walked down long roads that seem to have no end at all
You never wanted time to end to let my life offend
It's time to realize what hides deep inside your holy eyes

Hold on tight, hold on fast
This ain't the kind that always lasts
If you want me to go just ask me to go I'd go
All the way my love over the hills and right on through you
Run and all my love over the hills and right on to you
Over the hills and right on through you

Lying awake in these restless dreams life's never what it seems
I've always tried to read your eyes to get inisde that scornful mind

Hold on tight, hold on fast
This ain't the kind that always lasts
If you want me to go just ask me to go I'd go
All the way my love over the hills and right on through you
Run and all my love over the hills and right on to you
Over the hills and right on through you

I was with you on that pallet steaming, spinning
Sound in circles dreaming, I was with you on that
Pallet steaming running round in circles screaming...
all the way my love over the hills and right on through you...


Sad Clown

A time so haunting moonlight in the mist lay me down
Beside you oh we long to it lasts, from the river comes a
Figure drifting slowly by trailing long the water leaving
Softer than a sigh, softer than a sigh

All the feelings they remain like a still life
A dying swan song forever lost your cries of glory
The rain is falling down like silenece in a shroud when
All that really matters left to lose I'm all alone
I'm all alone

All the feelings they remain like a still life a
Dying swan song forever lost your cries of glory
Waking from the shadows a fear of sadness grows
Your heart is in your hand your knowing looks our
Time is gone, my time is gone swan's dying song...

Ben's Song

On the hills of fire the dankest hour I was dreaming
Of my true love's pyre who will bring the light to stoke
The fire fear not for you're just breathing
A cold wind blows on a windless day

Hear the cry for new life the mourning's flame you were
The brightest light that burned too soon in vain
Who will bring you back from where there's no return fear not
For you're just dreaming on a windless day I saw the life
Blood drained away. A cold wind blows on a windless day
