I looked below me where the earth was silent in a sick green light, and saw the hills look up afraid and the grasses on the hills and all the animals; and everywhere about me were the cries of frightened birds and sounds of fleeing wings. I was the chief of all the heavens riding there, and when I looked behind me, all the twelve black horses reared and plunged and thundered and their manes and tails were whirling hail and their nostrils snorted lightning. And when I looked below again, I saw the slant hail falling and the long, sharp rain, and where we passed, the trees bowed low and all the hills were dim.

Track Name: todaythepain
Today the pain, tomorrow the same
Track Name: takeitallaway
Force your way in
A sharp little pin

It's better to pretend
Explode now and then
The itch down inside
Something I can never hide

Disquietude, distress, doubt, dread
Lean in and whisper at my head
Disenchanted morning
Bread from restless night
Continue on with jaded
Apathetic life

Take it all away
Track Name: everythingisawaste
Everything is a waste

Everything is ok
Track Name: greyblackfalconhawk



Track Name: greyhawksky
Become the greyblackfalconhawk

Grey as early morning fog
Black as evening shadow rock

Become the greyblackfalconhawk

Leave to wander sky and plain
Where rainbows soar and where they end

Leave to wander sky and plain
Return again but not the same

Become the greyblackfalconhawk

See the four winds standing still
As warriors gathered in the field

Tall as pine
And strong as oak
With will like mighty river's flow

Ask of them and you shall know
Track Name: ifnotforthispatheticheart
Straight into the dawn
Earlier than I've been up in days
Get up and walk away

Almost as silent as it should be
Cold and wet
No one knows I've left

Wondering is the worst part
They'll worry for a while
Then one day you're mentioned
an awkward ending smile

No reason why
I am a broken man
A stone in the place of my heart again
Replace this sensitive flesh within
Had it once
But it grew
Old and thin
