I've been searching for you For such a long time I forgot the seasons I forgot the colour of the sun I've been waiting for a sign I've been shouting your name out loud Every single empty day Every single lonely night Maybe there is somewhere On a mountain, in a desert Maybe there is somewhere A place that is mine a crown without thorns I've been running through the storms I’ve been flying where ghosts don't tread To catch you in my dreams To see you, to touch your face I've been sweating in your shadow Bleeding on your walls of indifference Getting trapped in a sarcophagus of pain I'm waiting in vain to be released Maybe there is somewhere On a mountain in a desert Maybe there is somewhere A place that is mine a crown without thorns A crown without thorns is waiting for me x4 I've been searching for you For such a long time I forgot the seasons I forgot the colour of the sun I forgot the seasons I forgot the colour of the sun I forgot the seasons I forgot the colour of the sun I forgot the seasons The colour of the sun The colour of the sun A crown without thorns is waiting for me x4 A crown without thorns x2 A crown without thorns is waiting for me

I am he whose feet are dusty I am a man like any man born from a blue egg buried I have seen the flood above the cypress And known the power within I have swung wide the two blue doors of heaven Green water swings wide at the bow of my barque I have sailed the waterways of the Nile And entered the sea of heaven Give me water to drink Water to drink Give me water to drink Quench my thirst Give me the power of water I have rubbed shoulders with those With those who have rubbed shoulders with Ra I have envisioned angels without ceasing I have dreamed the white heat of my own resurrection I have passed through the floods of emotion The floods of emotion and knowledge I stood on the highest hill in Egypt And saw the waters embrace the land Give me water to drink Water to drink Give me water to drink Quench my thirst Give me the power of water Give me water to drink Water to drink Give me water to drink Quench my thirst Give me the power to love I have seen the moon fill with rain like a silver cup I've sailed my barque over the sky I am the sun roaring beside two lions named Yesterday and Tomorrow I am a young bull in a field of caves I have eaten the leg of venison and gnawed the bones of his tight I've gone around every island and sailed all the delta canals I can name every bright lotus that grows in Egypt I am the heir of eternity where the water flows I have eaten the leg of venison and gnawed the bones of his tight I've gone around every island and sailed all the delta canals I can name every bright lotus that grows in Egypt I am the heir of eternity where the water flows Give me water to drink Water to drink Give me water to drink Quench my thirst Give me the power of water Give me water to drink Water to drink Give me water to drink Quench my thirst Give me the power to love

I was nothing - I am bleeding I was everything - I am suffering I was the air - I am suffocating I was empty - I am emotion I was vacuity - I am confusion I was the voice - I am the hand Could I love you? - Could I love you again? Could I trust you? - Could I trust you again? I was unity - I am numbers I was eternity - I must endure I was the truth - I am the verb I was nothing - I am bleeding I was everything - I am suffering I was the air - I am suffocating Could I love you? - Could I love you again? Could I trust you? - Could I trust you again? Could I love you? - Could I love you again? Could I trust you again? - Could I live? I was nothing - I am bleeding I was everything - I am suffering I was the air - I am suffocating I was permanency - I am a ghost I was infinity - I am lost I was the one - I am a man Could I love you? - Could I love you again? Could I trust you? - Could I trust you again? Could I love you? - Could I love you again? Could I trust you again? - Could I die?

To outer senses there is peace, A dreamy peace on either hand, Deep silence in the shadowy land, Deep silence where the shadows cease. Save for a cry that echoes shrill From some lone bird disconsolate; A corncrake calling to its mate; The answer from the misty hill. And suddenly the moon withdraws Her sickle from the lightening skies, And to her sombre cavern flies, Wrapped in a veil of yellow gauze.

Enough 05:17
The earth can shake under my feet, My world may fall apart, But I know I will be okay In my heart When I hit the floor and scream, When the colours fade, In my heart I know I will be okay I am made of strength and steel, My heart is made of gold. And all of my hardships Are stories to be told One day you will hear of me A tale as old as time The self-fulfilling prophecy That is my life I will persevere When the road gets rough I will persevere I am enough I will persevere When the road gets rough I will persevere I am enough I will persevere When the road gets rough I will persevere No matter what they set out to do No matter how strong they are No matter how many they are No matter how strong they are No matter what they set out to do No matter how strong they are No matter how many they are No matter how strong they are No matter what they set out to do I will persevere I will persevere Poem: "Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds and shall find me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." I will persevere When the road gets rough I will persevere I am enough I will persevere When the road gets rough I will persevere I am enough I will persevere When the road gets rough I will persevere I am enough No matter how strong they are No matter how many they are No matter how strong they are No matter what they set out to do No matter how strong they are No matter how many they are No matter how strong they are I am enough I will persevere I will persevere

I felt a Funeral, in my Brain, And Mourners to and fro Kept treading - treading - till it seemed That Sense was breaking through - And when they all were seated, A Service, like a Drum - Kept beating - beating - till I thought My mind was going numb - And then I heard them lift a Box And creak across my Soul With those same Boots of Lead, again, Then Space - began to toll, As all the Heavens were a Bell, And Being, but an Ear, And I, and Silence, some strange Race, Wrecked, solitary, here – And then I heard them lift a Box And creak across my Soul With those same Boots of Lead, again, Then Space - began to toll, As all the Heavens were a Bell, And Being, but an Ear, And I, and Silence, some strange Race, Wrecked, solitary, here - And then a Plank in Reason, broke, And I dropped down, and down - And hit a World, at every plunge, And Finished knowing - then

Thunder and lightning Angels are crying The skies are ablaze Unstoppable fate Here comes the day To believe the signs There’s no escape No more lies The air’s aglow with fire No mockers and fools anymore The trumpets blow The end of the world A trail of light On the horizon Stars fade to black Dust to dust Thunder and lightning Demons are smirking The skies are ablaze Unstoppable fate Here comes the day To believe the signs There’s no escape No more lies Where planets die
