In Loving Memory Of Susan O'Reilly
3. Severance
the birds of leaving call to us
yet here we stand
endowed with the fear of flight

the winds of change consume the land
while we remain
in the shadow of summers now past

When all the leaves have fallen
and turned to dust
will we remain
entrenched within our ways?

the plague what moves throughout this land
Omen signs
in the shapes of things to come.

Tomorrow's child is the only child
tomorrow's child is the only child
5. In The Kingdom Of The Blind The One-eyed Are Kings
If it were within,
within our power
beyond the reach
of slavish pride,
to no-longer
harbour grievances
behind the mask's
opportunists facade,

we could welcome responsibility
like a long lost friend
and re-establish laughter
in the doll's house once again.

For time has imprisoned us
in the order of our years
in the discipline of our ways
and in the passing of momentary stillness

You can see our chaos in motion
our chaos in motion
We can view our chaos in motion
view our chaos in motion...

...and the subsequent collisions of fools
well-versed in the subtle art of slavery.
7. Song Of Sophia
With one wish we wake the will
within wisdom
With one will we wish the wisdom
within waking
Woken, wishing, willing
10. Ulysses
John Francis Dooley
wipe the sleep from your eyes
and embrace the light.
You have slept now for a thousand years
beneath starless nights.
And now it's time for you to renounce the old ways
and see a new dawn rise.
In formet days
the masks were raised
when the god came down from off the mountain,
and a sacrifice was made
for they knew the day of WRATH
was fast approaching.
Just like yesterday...
before the war.
John Francis Dooley,
the scapegoat has run
all our sins are disowned.
And now it's time for you
to take off thy mask
and cross the Rubicon!
If you and I were one
within the eyes of our designs,
it would still not change
the fact of our leaving.
For tonight we must leave
with the first gentle breeze.
For the Isles of Ken we are assailing!
Just like Ullyses, on an open sea
On an odyssey
of self-discovery...
