Track Name: Where In The World
Where in the world have you gone now
I'll get close to the truth somehow
Let me know where you are

I often have a vision shows you once found
Random optimism finds you safe and sound
It seems to be this life can't get any harder
Remember where your trust lies, I'll help you try
And still hear you crying for forgiveness
What are you frightened of you can still run back
Escaping from deep inside
As I move to my second sight
In pictures not words I'll draw my conclusion

Where in the world have you gone now
I'll get close to the truth somehow
Let me know where you are now

I'm sure you can be found
I need to hear you speaking
One word will do just fine
Don't hate me with silence

Where in the world have you gone now
I'll get close to the truth somehow
Let me know where you are

Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Is This Real
Is this real or just another mistake I am making
This is now a time I can understand
The chances I know that I'm taking
I've never had the reason before
To look deep at the past is this real

Stand beside me dressed in darkness
A candle lights the path as I wonder by
Sooner or later I recognise you
As a long lost friend from a long lost past

Nothing changes after all I know
Just hide in my own silent wasteland
I hope for my sake I can turn this from
Upside down, It's not easy to fall
And to climb back again

Isolation - communication
Afraid of the silence or scared by sound
One more lesson to keep possession
Of fragile hearts before they touch the ground

Nothing changes with all I know
Just hide in my own silent wasteland
I hope for my sake I can turn this from
Upside down, It's not easy to fall, to fall

Hanging on to every word that you say
I'm not surprised to see this drifting away
Figure I was lucky to make the most when I could
I am here, you are there, this is real

Keep a distance, show resistance
A page thats open with the last few lines
Intentions clearer, getting nearer
Best move forward as the true sides shines

Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Alive Inside
A time of disillusion can anyone see
If i relate to such confusion
If at last I can be free to spare a thought

Then I thought about the things we'd say
How I tried to wish my life away
I can't remember all the things I'm told
And won't forget why you seem so cold

All roads that I could follow
May be right or they are long
Still the memory is so shallow such emptiness
And the pain would seem so wrong

Terrified to come alive inside
I need to know that I can still divide
Myself between the place that I have known
Or forever on my own

Track Name: Between Here & There

Track Name: Racing Sideways
A curious sound I am uneasy
It's from nowhere I could have known
Confuse my sanity, stay low
Until I rage against the flow

My mind is racing sideways
It takes me back with a recollection
Its so strange getting hopes high
Once in a while

Seeking revenge within this unconditioned soul
And I find I create chaos out of reasons
That remain beyond my control

What can be seen here behind these eyes
Better to know than to keep it disguised

My mind is racing sideways
It takes me back with a recollection
Its so strange getting hopes high
Once in a while

What can be seen here behind these eyes
Better to know than to keep it disguised

Obsession is getting me nowhere
I find it hard to keep myself on the floor
When I'm throwing out shapes into mid air
I swear that they were here once before

Music by Jadis
Lyrics by Gary Chandler
Track Name: Understand
I lights down on this horizon
What do you want for yourself
Make one decision, I can understand

Though I'm forever turning around
And too far lost to even be found
I give you the space to tell me why

Theres one thing i've learnt by escaping
Another way to open your eyes
I see this as a start to the future
This is a total surprise
Understanding everyone has a reason
Still unsure releasing your hand
One fine day it's clearer than crystal
I can finally understand

Though I'm forever turning around
And too far lost to even be found
A long, long while I've waited
It appears to me I'm running through the sand
There were moments I thought
This was much like drowning
Then again that's something you don't understand

No sense in conversation the answers never return
I can't spend time on reflection
If nothing can be learnt

Though I'm forever turning around
And too far lost to even be found
A long, long while I've waited
It appears to me I'm running through the sand
There were moments I thought
This was much like drowning
Then again they're reasons you don't understand
