Track Name: Sooner Than Later
Been a few years now
And you are all to me
Thin disguises disappear
Revealing grander schemes

Travelled ‘cross a downcast world
Home shrinks in distant gaze
See the Colonel take the lead
Then take his child by the hand

“Chimeras take flank
Atropos of the fairies dance”

When this song is over
Our bond will rise anew
And his legacy will rest secure

I am yours alone
Our hands bound together
For as long as we will see

So long
Farewell
So long
Fair travel home
Track Name: House Of Cards
The world is melodrome
Fool for thought
Whatever spell she had
Fell to not a word
To be heard

Evidence was a style withheld
Once, in a way of legaldom, foretold
Born of shadows ‘cross the field

Take one feathered look-
What was the sight of her song in the marrow?
Another gaze, sapped of strength and
All too undone- in display, cast away
Each card to the ground and told all,
All was gone

The world is melodrome
Oh, food once thought
Whatever sell she had
Fell to not a word
To be heard
Track Name: Not That It Matters
Just so you know, it never mattered
Just so you know, I never cared
And I hardly ever think about you
Buried your face in my hair

And oh, by the way, I’m moving on now
And leaving is the nicest thing
You ever did for me

And oh,
Not that it matters
At all
Not that it matters
At all
Not that it matters
At all
Why should it matter?
At all

(lyrics by Karry Walker)
Track Name: Horizon
This cold world
Before the curl
One thawed refrain
Sears with the rain

Smeared soul of earth
Struck with the grand ingrate slap
Once vast well of life
Now rots beneath our step

Oh, oh my love, my life oh please be mine again
