1. I Saw These Things Happening

I SAW YOU DISAPPEAR IN A SEA OF FLAMES
I SAW YOUR SILHOUETTE DANCING AGAINST A BLOOD DRIPPING MOON
I SAW YOUR FACE ALTERING IN A MILLION WAYS
I SAW MYSELF VANISHING OUT OF YOUR RANGE
I SAW THESE THINGS HAPPENING AS THE SEER SAID
I SAW THE SKY FLOURISHING WITH THE DEAD
I SAW THESE THINGS HAPPENING AS THE SEER HAD SAID
AS THE SEER HAD SAID
AS THE SEER HAD SAID
AS THE SEER HAD SAID

2. Everything We See Will Turn to Dust

GOOD MORNING, SLEEPING DARLING! THE SUN IS AWAKE!
EVERYTHING BEGINS AGAIN!
DEW, DO YOU KNOWJUST HOW WONDERFUL YOU ARE?
YOU MAKE THE WORLD FEEL NEW AGAIN!

SOON ENOUGH
EVERYTHING WE SEE WILL TURN TO DUST,
MY DEAR, I SEE THESE THINGS SIMULTANEOUSLY!
HELP ME TO SEE WHAT IS REAL!
WHAT IS REAL?

GOOD MORNING, LITTLE DARLING! A BODY OF LIGHT
DISPLAYS YOUR BODY SO FINE!
I COULD STAY HERE FOR A THOUSAND YEARS,
OBLIVIOUS TO ALL MY FEARS!

SOON ENOUGH
EVERYTHING WE SEE WILL TURN TO DUST,
MY DEAR, I SEE THESE THINGS SIMULTANEOUSLY!
HELP ME TO SEE WHAT IS REAL!
WHAT IS REAL?

”SOON ENOUGH
ALL THE DUST WE SEE WILL TURN TO DIAMOND SKIES,
STRAWBERRY SUMMERS, TEAR-FREE EYES!”
THIS WAS YOUR REPLY
IN THE MORNING LIGHT.

3. A Kid on the Beach

I’M LIKE A KID ON THE BEACH
WHEN YOU HURL A NEW SUN OVER ME!
YOUR LOVE IS AN ENTHEOGEN
I CAN RUN WILD IN…

A YELLOW IRIS RISES IN THE HORIZON…
I SEE ALL COLORS REVIVE AS IN THE HANDS OF AN ARTISAN,
WHO’S LIFTING ME OUT OF THE BLACK
AND INTO THE BLUE.

I’M LIKE A KID ON THE BEACH
WHEN YOU HURL A NEW SUN OVER ME!
YOUR LOVE IS AN ENTHEOGEN
I CAN RUN WILD IN…

I FEEL THIS DAY SHOULD BE A DAY OF CELEBRATION!
I AM IN A STATE OF ELEVATION
‘CAUSE SOMETHING THAT WAS INEVITABLY LOST
COULD BE FOUND!

I’M LIKE A KID ON THE BEACH
WHEN YOU HURL A NEW SUN OVER ME!
YOUR LOVE IS AN ENTHEOGEN
I CAN RUN WILD IN…

I RUN WILD,
I GET LOST
IN MY THOUGTS…
AND I NEED YOU
I NEED YOU
I NEED YOU TO RISE IN MY DARK HORIZON…

I’M LIKE A KID ON THE BEACH
WHEN YOU HURL A NEW SUN OVER ME!
YOUR LOVE IS AN ENTHEOGEN
I CAN RUN WILD IN…

4. I Saw Ashes Where You Once Lay

YOU SAID:
”LOVER,TAKE ME OVER THERE
BY THE WINDOW,
WHERE A GOLDFINCH SINGS
IN THE VINE, THAT GAVE US SHADE ON SUMMER DAYS
AND WINE TO DRINK WHEN WINTER CAME.
LO! IT SINGS!”

STOP THE CLOCKS!
NO TIME IS NEEDED NOW.
LET THE BELLS CALL FOR MY LOVE.
STOP THE SUN!
STOP THE SUN IN ITS O.R.B.I.T.
LET THE BELLS CALL FOR MY LOVE.

I SAID:
“IF YOU MUST GO,
I WON’T STAND IN YOUR WAY.
I SEE YOUR TIME HAS COME.”
YESTERDAY I SAW ASHES WHERE YOU ONCE LAY.
IN OUR BED.

STOP THE CLOCKS!
NO TIME IS NEEDED NOW.
LET THE BELLS CALL FOR MY LOVE.
STOP THE SUN!
STOP THE SUN IN ITS O.R.B.I.T.
LET THE BELLS CALL FOR MY LOVE.

(JUST BEFORE YOU LEFT,
YOU SAID THE STRANGEST THING:
“I KNOW MY BODY IS COVERED WITH FLIES,
BUT THIS BIRD MUST BE SENT FROM PARADISE”)

5. Angel Falling

LATELY I’VE SEEN YOUR SONGS STAND STILL ON YOUR TONGUE.
LATELY I HAVE SEEN YOU WALK ABOUT IN THE STREETS LIKE A DOG.

YOU LOOK LIKE AN ANGEL
YOU LOOK LIKE AN ANGEL

LATELY I’VE SEEN HOW YOUR EYES SWIRL,
SEARCHING FOR ROOMS WITH EXIT SIGNS IN YOUR WORLD.
YOU LOOK LIKE AN ANGEL

DID I FAIL TO TELL YOU –  I HAVE FALLEN TOO?
DID I FAIL TO TELL YOU – I WOULD FOLLOW YOU?

6. Far Away from Eden

FAR AWAY FROM EDEN
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING’S CHANGING
ANYTHING BURNS

FAR AWAY FROM EDEN
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT FEELS LIKE EVERYTHING CHANGES
NOTHING IS AS IT WAS

FAR AWAY FROM EDEN
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING’S CHANGING
ANYTHING BURNS

FAR AWAY FROM EDEN
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING’S CHANGING
NOTHING IS AS IT WAS

THAT’S ME IN THE PICTURE
CHASING AFTER WIND
LOOK HOW TIME IS A VAMPIRE
FEEDING ON MY YOUTH
THE TONE OF A RAZOR BLADE
SLIT THROUGH A VEIN
———–
FAR AWAY FROM EDEN
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING’S CHANGING
AND MAN EXPIRES

FAR AWAY FROM EDEN
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT FEELS LIKE EVERYTHING CHANGES
NOTHING IS AS IT WAS
SUPPOSED TO BE.

7. The Colors of the Sea

OH, MY SOUL, CAN YOU NAME THEM,
THE COLORS OF THE SEA?
I STAND BEFORE A STARLIT OCEAN.
IT OVERPOWERS ME

THAT NO ANSWERS ARE
FOUND IN THE STREAMS OF THE STARS!
NOT A SINGLE SIGN IN THE SKY
IS FOUND.

OH, MY LOVE, CAN YOU SEE THEM,
THE COLORS OF THE SEA?
IF YOU CAN, CAN YOU NAME THEM
AND TELL IT TO ME?

‘CAUSE NO ANSWERS ARE
FOUND IN THE STREAMS OF THE STARS!
NOT A SINGLE SIGN IN THE SKY
IS FOUND
IS FOUND
IS FOUND.

8. Sapphire Skies, Rivers of Rubies

I SEE IT FROM THE PINNACLE
OF THE TEMPLE:
SAPPHIRE SKIES,
RIVERS OF RUBIES,
MEADOWS OF GOLD,
IVORY TOWERS,
MILK AND HONEY
…COULD I GIVE IN TO ALL THIS?

I SEE IT FROM THE PINNACLE
OF THE TEMPLE:
GLORIOUS BODIES,
AN INFINITE SOUL,
SORCERY POWERS,
△△△△△△△
MIND CONTROL
△△△△△△△

I SEE IT FROM THE PINNACLE
OF THE TEMPLE:
SAPPHIRE SKIES,
RIVERS OF RUBIES,
…COULD I GIVE IN…
…COULD I GIVE IN TO ALL THIS?

9. A Hazy Vision

I CLOSE MY EYES AND I FLOAT UPSTREAM
AND RECEIVE A HAZY VISION OF ALL THINGS:
I SEE NEW YORK FROM THE WINGS OF AN EAGLE
I SEE ALL THE EELS IN THE NILE
I SEE ALL THE PEOPLE FLOW THROUGH THE STREETS
LIKE TUMBLEWEED
I SEE A MAN LEAVING AND LEAVING
I SEE THE NAME OF A HOTEL
I SEE A NAKED WOMAN LIE ON A BED IN CRUMPLED SHEETS

I SEE ALL THESE THINGS…
I CAN’T WRAP MY BRAIN AROUND THEM,
CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY MEAN…
I SEE ALL THESE THINGS…
I CAN’T WRAP MY BRAIN AROUND THEM,
CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY MEAN!

I SEE RAINBOWS BEYOND RAINBOWS
I SEE THE SEEDS ON A STRAWBERRY
I SEE COPENHAGEN, BOMBAY, BARCELONA AND ABERDEEN
I SEE A GIRL AND I SEE A BOY
I SEE THAT THEY HAVE SEEN FAR TOO MUCH
I SEE JUSTICE AND PEACE
SIT IN A BAR
DOING NOTHING
AT ALL

I SEE ALL THESE THINGS…
I CAN’T WRAP MY BRAIN AROUND THEM,
CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY MEAN!
AND MAYBE THAT’S OK?
CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THE LIGHTHEADEDNESS OF SPRING
AS YOU CAN UNDERSTAND ALGEBRA
AND UNDERSTAND THE PHYSICS OF ALL THINGS?

I CLOSE MY EYES AND I FLOAT UPSTREAM
AND RECEIVE A HAZY VISION OF ALL THINGS:
I SEE A MAN WRITE IN THE SAND
I CAN ONLY SEE HIM FROM BEHIND
I TRY, BUT I CANNOT SEE WHAT HE WRITES
CAN’T SEE WHAT HE WRITES

I SEE ALL THESE THINGS…
I CAN’T WRAP MY BRAIN AROUND THEM,
CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY MEAN!
AND MAYBE THAT’S OK?
CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THE LIGHTHEADEDNESS OF SPRING
AS YOU CAN UNDERSTAND ALGEBRA
AND UNDERSTAND THE PHYSICS OF ALL THINGS?

10. A Brief Glimpse of Smoke

THE GREEN GRASS WITHERS,
CITIES PERISH, A SUMMERNIGHT ENDS.
A BRIEF GLIMPSE OF SMOKE
– A SIGH –
AN UNSOLVED RIDDLE TOLD:
WITH THE SAME TWO HANDS
I BURIED MY FATHER,
I CARRY MY SON.

SIGNS OF RUST IN MY TREASURE,
SIGNS OF DARK MATTER IN MY VEINS,
THE BEAMING SIGN OF JONAH,
AND THE DARKENING SIGN OF CAIN.
AND I THRUST MY SONG
INTO THE OCEAN
AGAIN AND AGAIN.

THE SMOKE FROM MY OFFERING –
WILL IT RISE OR WILL IT BEND?
THE BEAMING SIGN OF JONAH,
AND THE DARKENING SIGN OF CAIN!
I LIGHT MY FIRE
AS WELL AS I CAN!

AND WITH THE SAME TWO HANDS
I BURIED MY FATHER, I CARRY MY SON!
WITH THE SAME TWO HANDS
I BURIED MY FATHER, I CARRY MY SON!
WITH THE SAME TWO HANDS
I BURIED MY FATHER, I CARRY MY SON!
WITH THE SAME TWO HANDS
I BURIED MY FATHER, I CARRY MY SON.

11. I Saw the Holy Dove Move

I WROTE TO YOU IF WE COULD MEET
IN THE PARK BY THE SYCAMORE TREE
(WHERE WE CARVED A HEART OF WILL,
WHERE WE SAW TIME STAND STILL.
WHERE I SAW THE HOLY DOVE
 MOVE IN BOTH ME AND YOU):

“IF I GIVE IN TO MY SORROW HERE
WILL YOU BE THERE TO DRY MY TEARS?
IF I COME WITH NOTHING, THEN,
WILL YOU COME WITH EVERYTHING?
I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, WANT TO SEE YOU THERE
BY THE SYCAMORE TREE…
IF I SEE YOU THERE, MY FRIEND,
I MIGHT BELIEVE IN LOVE AGAIN”

12. I See These Things Happening

I SEE CHILDREN PLAYING AT THE CAVE OF THE BEAR.
AND OF THE LION THE LAMB HAS NO FEAR.
I SEE THE BLIND REGAIN SIGHT
BY SPIT AND DIRT IN THEIR EYES.

THE RIDDLELESS TIME HAS BEGUN!
THE RIDDLELESS TIME HAS BEGUN!

I SEE A SECRET REVEALED IN EVERY MIND.
I SEE EVERY GRAVE OPENING.
I SEE A MAN WALK AMONG THE GRAVES
-”TALITHA KOUM!”, HE SAYS

THE RIDDLELESS TIME HAS BEGUN!
THE RIDDLELESS TIME HAS BEGUN!
THE RIDDLELESS TIME HAS BEGUN!
THE RIDDLELESS TIME HAS BEGUN!

I SEE GLORIFIED BODIES ARISE!
AND MURDERERS EMBRACED BY THE MURDERED!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING
RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES!

THE RIDDLELESS TIME HAS BEGUN!
THE TEARLESS TIME HAS BEGUN!
THE ENDLESS TIME HAS BEGUN!
THE RIDDLELESS TIME HAS BEGUN!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING!

13. Epilogue: What Does It Mean?

Behold!
 I SAW THESE THINGS HAPPENING:
I SAW ASHES WHERE YOU ONCE LAY,
I SAW THE HOLY DOVE MOVE.
FAR AWAY FROM EDEN,
I SAW THESE THINGS HAPPENING.
I SAW THE HOLY DOVE MOVE
FAR AWAY FROM EDEN.

Can you tell me what they mean,
all these things that I have seen?
All these things I have seen,
can you tell me what they mean?
Tell me what they mean!

I SAW ASHES WHERE YOU ONCE LAY,
I SAW THE HOLY DOVE MOVE
FAR AWAY FROM EDEN.
I saw an ANGEL FALLING,
and A KID ON THE BEACH,
who saw 
THE COLORS OF THE SEA
and SAPPHIRE SKIES, RIVERS OF RUBIES

Can you tell me what they mean,
all these things that I have seen?
Can you tell me what they mean,
all these things that I have seen?
Are they just A BRIEF GLIMPSE OF SMOKE?

In A HAZY VISION
I see, that
 EVERYTHING WE SEE WILL TURN TO DUST!
I SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING,
but what do they mean?
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Can you tell me what they mean,
all these things that I have seen?
Tell me what it means!
