Track Name: (Into The Land) That Time Forgot
Into the land where life stands still
Past the trees and the valley far over the hill
Where you never grow old
And the earth will never rot
Into the land that time forgot
Track Name: The Trip (Parts I & II)
You feel trapped under the weight of your words
They've overlapped falling and falling to the ground
Crystal eyes gaze out into the sun
You're standing still but it feels like you're on the run

You don't know if your mind might slip
Off of your face thoughts all will drip
You don't know if you'll survive the trip

Drifting away and trickling trickling down
You look confused you smile but it feels like a frown
Step inside into the church of your mind
What a strange place you've entered a velvet and stained glass shrine

You don't know if your mind might slip
Off of your face thoughts all will drip
You don't know if you'll survive the trip
Track Name: Egyptian Days
Slipping down an ancient waterway
Wondering where I am today
A grain of sand, a flash of light
Sleeping in the garden of good and evil

Drink this wine and you shall die
Swim through tunnels in your mind
The serpent tempts, my eyes can't see
Cursed by the garden of good and evil

Counting down Egyptian days
Perfumed flowers in your hair
A grain of sand, a flash of light
Sleeping in the garden of good and evil
Track Name: Song Of The Seven Willows
Song of the seven willows
Tale of the rose and thorn
Out of the land of sorrow
Deep in the land of dreams
Song of the seven willows
Track Name: On Through The Ages
I saw you in the garden looking for the sun
Sitting near the fountain side waiting for no one
Tears like emeralds falling down turning into sand into sand

You dreamed you saw a thousand years flash before your eyes
Galleries projected creations in the sky
You tried to climb the garden steps
But time had turned to stone turned to stone

A river flows through your eyes deep within the earth
On through the ages of death and rebirth
The beholder stands with starry eyes searching for the truth

You wandered on in darkness not expecting what you'd find
Martyrs and romantics crucified and dying
Tears roll down your velvet skin but still you could not see

A river flows through your eyes deep within the earth
On through the ages of death and rebirth
The beholder stands with starry eyes searching for the truth
Track Name: Fountains/Reflections
I had been caught dreaming with hazy purple eyes
Gazing at reflections in the river

Standing on the green green grass the rain-washed summer air
Thinking about the purpose of the river

The castle in the distance had faded into clouds
The magician casting spells upon the day

Cascading streams of light painting figures on the wall
Dancing in the shadows of my footsteps

I climbed upon a hill to the castle in the clouds
To find the king had died in the garden
Track Name: Voyage Of The Crystal Bird
The wings of the crystal bird painted royal blue and gold
From the vine leaf water drips she leaves her garden throne

The hyacinth of spring is grown the bird of time has flown
Clasps the stone flies through the night the crystal bird is gone

The voyage of the crystal bird the journey through the night
Through the forest to the seventh gate the crystal bird takes flight

The soft wind whispers calls her near beneath the willow brow
Forsakes the stone the ruby ring for new love keeps her now

The wings of the gilded bird fragile and noble crest
Revealing secrets long she's kept within her royal nest

The voyage of the crystal bird the journey through the night
Through the forest to the seventh gate the crystal bird takes flight

The voyage of the crystal bird the journey through the night
To the east to the seventh gate the crystal bird takes flight
Track Name: Forest Path
I walked upon the grass on a misty Sunday morning
Down a gravel path into the forest with no warning

Deep into the glade I saw my true love weeping
As the season turned to cold the barley there was sleeping

Disappearing in the trees I heard my true love calling
And there beside a well gently it surrounds me

Dropped a coin into the well watched the water turn to nothing
Dropped a wish into the well saw the water changing colors

Through the fog I made my way though the sound was so enchanting
As the season turned to spring I heard the children laughing

Down the forest path
Down the forest path
Down the forest path
Track Name: (Into The Land) That Time Forgot Pt. II
Into the land where thyme ponds flow
Past the waltzing yellow flowers where scarlets grow
Into the land where life stands still
Past the trees and the valley far over the hill

Into the land that time forgot
Into the land that time forgot
Track Name: Rania
Rania standing on the shore of my mind
Rania I saw you picking flowers in the rain
Rania turning back the hands of your heart
Close your eyes memories and dreams come apart

Rania sapphire goddess in the moonlight
Lies beneath the diamond tree

Rania looking through the windows of your mind
(Time is strange it slips away tomorrow is another day)
Rania golden hair is flowing right behind
(Rain is gone and children play watch the sky blow away)

Rania turning back the hands of your heart
(I remember you from long ago standing there but moving slow)
Close your eyes memories and dreams come apart
(Wind will blow the earth will shake trees will grow the earth will make)

Rania sapphire goddess in the moonlight
Sleeping near the garden gate
Track Name: Day Of Light
The sun goes down the day has vanished
The children close their weary eyes
The morning comes the light is strong
Won't it help them find their way

The path has led them from warmth and safety
To uncertainty and fear
The sun goes down the day has vanished
The children close their weary eyes

The day of light the day the trees grew from the earth
The day of light the day of death and the day of birth
The day of light the day of love and the day of hate
The day of light of destruction and of create
The day of light the day of beauty and the day of sin
The day of light of the power of the light within
