Track Name: There's A Light
You could be right you could be wrong
You can be anywhere but gone
I will see night you will see day
The more I hear the less I say
There's a light on the inside now

Never a plan where to begin
Some day I would let you in
Virtue of grace takes its own stand
Continually hiding my face in the sand
There's a light on the inside now

And a feeling I can hold on I believe I can hold on
Eyes are changing colour from brightness through to grey
In a never ending cycle the Light that cured the pain
There's a light on the inside now

And a feeling I can hold on I believe I can hold on
You could be right you could be wrong
You can be anywhere but gone
I will see night you will see day
The more I hear the less I say

Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: What Goes Around
Halfway down this winding road
You see the mountains on all sides
Cannot return to the crash and the burn
Just understand what you find
Oпе look in the mirror reveals torrient on that face
Instead of a soul expressionless hole
That keeps you choked and bound in one place
Igniting the fuse watch it glow
Count on one hand the friends you know

Waves of sadness hang in the air
Try to divide when there's nothing to share
There comes a time when it's too late to say
What goes around what goes around
Ignite the fuse and watch it glow
Count on one hand the friends you know
Lighting the fuse watch it glow and watch it gc
What goes around keeps spinning around
There comes a time when it's too much to fight
Your life is a cage which you never escaped
What goes around keeps spinning around

Music by Jadis
Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Asleep In My Hands
How many oceans in my life will I sail on
Maybe one, and then I'll fly to somehwere new
I long to find a friend my life could depend on
I've reached a space that I am never getting through

I can hear the sound of distant cries
Closer to the doorway, I know there's something wrong
My vacant smile waits to hear what you will say

I can't wait to feel the snow upon my face
And I can't wait to see a better human race
Falling like confetti from the coolest winter sky
A race to insanity before my very eyes

I can hear the sound of distant cries
Closer to the doorway, I know there's something wrong
My vacant smile waits to hear what you will say

If I could fall asleep in my hands
I'd drift off to somewhere unknown
If I could fall asleep in my hands, I'd drift off in silence

If I could fall asleep in my hands
I'd drift off to somehere unknown
If I would only see through my plans, I'd drift off in silence

Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Standing Still
If it all works out like I planned there's no need to worry
The light beams down and I find it hard to say that i'm sory
It's unlike me to confuse myself and fail to see what is so obvious
Cloud moves across my skin look at the state I'm in
It's getting so hard to tell you what I know

The floor is moving but I'm just standing still
The dream had an ended but nightmare never will
It's unlike me to confuse myself and fail to see what is so obvious
Cloud moves across my skin look at the state I'm in

I sometimes ask myself if I have the self control
I cannot deny this freedom of my soul
Although I can't define and nothing's like it seems
For any given sign could turn and break my dreams
I'd really like to be there but where do I begin
The inner golden glow would never let me in

Music by Jadis
Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: I Hear Your Voice
The distance I have known a thousand miles in front of me
I've walked across these endless lands before
The took upon my face may tell a different story
For once I have the words that reassure
Thoughts that won't let go a photo at my side
Familiar sounds just echo all the time

I hear your voice from halfway round this world
And all i have is the hope that you'll return
And I know you can't let go of this distant far off place
And I can't even show what I have learnt

Tongue completely tied eyes are open wide
Still waiting for a chance to hear your voice
To feel to touсh to hear

I can hear your voice from halfway round this world
And all I have is the hope that you'll return
And I know you can't let go of this distant far off place
And I can't even show what I have learnt

I hear your voice from halfway round this world
And I don't even know if you'll return
I hear you I can hear your voice

Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Make Me Move
People change don't judge them by the clothes they wear
Peace remains an option in this land we share
Watch the enemy rip through the territory
Don't forget that somewhere there are those who are losing friends
You make me move like the waves on the water
Yet completely dry it's as if I'm surrounded
by your touch and your sound I can still feel you near me

All insane the madmen reign to bleed you dry
Take a stand then raise a hand to question why
No point in apologies feeding off the sympathies
Don't forget that somewhere there are those who are losing friends

You make me move
Yet I'm completely dry it's as if I'm surrounded
By your touch and your sound i can still feel you near me
As you are floating around

Mass confusion no one wants to be the same
Wealth obsession with possession who's to gain
Faith will lead to war what we fighting for
Don't forget that somewhere there are those who are losing friends

You make me move like the waves on the water
Yet I'm completely dry it's as if I'm surrounded
By your touch and your sound you're still so near
Faith will lead to war what the hell we fighting for
Underneath we're all the same you make me move again

Music by Jadis
Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Who I Am
I cannot remember my own way home
And I cannot remember whose side I'm on
Even my first name just tell me once again
Not sure I should be here or who I am
I'm sure someone is listening or looking in the places I go
Just at odds with my senses just at odds with my senses

I cannot remember a single time or place
And I still cannot recognise anybodys face
Signposts on the wall no meaning for me now
Print upon the pages is lost somehow
I'm sure someone is listening or looking in the places I go
Just at odds with my senses just at odds with my senses

I still don't know who I am I can't recognise my skin
What on earth can I do this time if my memory won't let me in
I'm sure someone is listening or looking in the places I go
Just at odds with my senses just at odds with my senses

Chorus:

I still don't know who I am I can't recognise my skin
What on earth can I do this time if my memory won't let me in
I could turn and run into the sunset I could stay and watch my life unfold
It will take a while but I will remember a glimpse before I get to old
And I still don't know who I am and I still don't know who I am

Caught out being lonely who could blame me now
A sudden spell of amnesia I forget myself

Music by Jadis
Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Need To Breathe
What's my new idea i'll think it up out loud
Time to make my move and jump upon the sinners as they go
The sympathy you give doesn't mean a lot to anyone
As long as you will live it doesn't mean a lot the vengeance carries

I need to breathe and to hear and to watch them moving
And to see and to touch a hand so soothing

The town was painted red with the blood that stains your fingernails
Your sycophantic friends will leave you when the time is right

I need to breathe and to hear and to watch them moving
And to see and to touch a hand so soothing

what's my new idea I'll think it up out loud
Time to make my move and jump upon the sinners as they go

I need to breathe and to hear and to watch them moving
And to see and to touch a hand so soothing

Music by Jadis
Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Please Open Your Eyes
Turn and place the cries the camera always lies
While crashing to your feet the friend you long to meet
Passport left behind for someone else to find
Then everyone you've known gone for good left out on your own

Please open your eyes nothing's wrong it's all in the mind
There's still no reason to hide reconciled to go with the tide

A vain attempt to find the broken man inside
A knock upon the door has you flying to the floor
Shadows moving past reflections in the glass
A sound from near the stairs no need to look no one's there

Please open your eyes nothing's wrong it's all in the mind
There's still no reason to hide reconciled to go with the tide

The trouble with me is it's half after three
And I'm so wide awake I pray just to sleep again
Thoughts in my head keep me from the comfort of bed
And the noises through the walls and the floors are a constant restraint

Please open your eyes nothing's wrong it's all in the mind
There's still no reason to hide reconciled to go with the tide

Music by Jadis
Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: All You've Ever Known
After years soaking up spotlights you drowned in the fame
Now not even your mother or father remember your name
Exactly the point of return you cannot define
For now most of your needs are already mine
Keep hoping and asking whose side you're on
Now that time has gone
No one seems to care in this life you could not share
A masking smile of stone is all you've ever known

As you lay down on the grass started rain
What more can you do to temper the pain
Keep hoping and asking whose side you're on
Now that time has gone

Chorus:

No one seems to care in this life you could not share
A masking smile of stone is all you've ever known
Now the summer past will the autumn last
I want know how these thoughts will grow

Chorus
