The further that we went we found our maps were strangely lacking Where they should have led a gaping hole instead With our telescopes and computers we were out there seeking Finally there's hope some light is being shed I feel we're on the edge The mystery's begun to shatter Discovering instead Shake up the theories and Find Ways to Matter Blind alleys we've stumbled down New insights might require some review To see the invisible There's a lot first to see through... I feel we're on the edge The mystery's begun to shatter Discovering instead Shake up the theories and Find Ways to Matter And Find Ways to Matter And Find Ways to Matter

Here in the fields feel the morning breeze Corn & maize they gently sway Here comes another day... Corn & maize they gently sway Here comes another day, Here comes another day, Here comes another day...

Palm trees stand by the mall My iron bars, my prison yard Blue ocean fills the view The walls keeping me safe so far Another Day in Paradise Everyone says it's so nice Another Day in Paradise... Frogs whistle, crickets chirp So loud all night around my hut Grey morning, sudden rain Pours down and then the sun is up Another Day in Paradise Everyone says it's so nice Another Day in Paradise... Sold on the sun & surf The loneliest place on earth I heard good things but there you go... Bikini-clad bores abound Toasting this two surfboard town And me so tightly wound... Another Day in Paradise Everyone says it's so nice Another Day in Paradise... Another Day in Paradise Another Day in Paradise Another Day in Paradise...

Is Mrs. Smuts at home or out with Mr. Executive? He's left the wife alone with a story but she reckons there's a twist... If he would stop his flirting & love the one he's hurting: That's a big if for Mr. & Mrs. Executive And they're playing Happy Families again... And at the dinner party the royal couple are a team again She thinks they could be happy they could be playing to win again... If he would stop his flirting & love the one he's hurting: That's a big if for Mr. & Mrs. Executive And they're playing Happy Families again... And later in the town he's dealt another wild card He tries to play it straight but the temptation makes it hard Betting against the house but the house suspects He's going too far...

A particle of light slips into sight In an improbable flight Here, there and nowhere between In every ray every seen Each moment tells a tale In a sequential trail Under reality's veil Here, there and nowhere beteween Encountered before it has been Spooky Action that comes from a distance Seems unreal Still entangling points in the mind Connecting the present with the deepest time Here, there and nowhere beteween Here, there and nowhere beteween

Inflexible Flyer, always goes in a straight line. Inflexible Flyer, no detours or over-rides No delays taking your time on this flight... There's other planes here in the sky and other routes and landing sites - open your eyes... See softer landings come to you, see from a different point of view - Cos the kids have all been calling you... Inflexible Flyer, always goes in a straight line. Inflexible Flyer, no detours or over-rides No delays taking your time on this flight... Tower to Flyer: I know what I'm doing You're flying too low: I know what I'm doing Tower to Flyer: I know what I'm doing Think of those you inadvertently buzz Fall-out fear from above... Inflexible Flyer, always goes in a straight line. Inflexible Flyer, no detours or over-rides No delays taking your time on this flight... On this flight On this flight On this flight...

Scary people on the street Scary people on the street Scary people on my mind Scary people on the street Scary people on my mind Scary people on the street

All the banners have fallen & all swept away Like the flags & the standards we hoped would hold sway The cause seems so lost at the end of the day Looking back from the Far Side of the Fray Now it's back to the manor and knowing your place Though we tried to win change the unjust won the day Down under the feet of the rich we remain Going on from the Far Side of the Fray Here's a health to Sir Tyler and all he would save If not in our time there will come a day If the cause is worth winning some will find try again And find a way on the Far Side of the Fray

Solar Birds 03:42
Solar Birds (c) & (p) 2016 Ian Roure Drifting again it’s a recurring daydream A glimpse of a different view Grounded so long on a circular perch Isn’t it about time we flew? Solar Birds guided by inquiring eyes Solar Birds look up to the solar skies Picture window opening Timeless vistas beckoning… Drifting again it’s a recurring daydream A glimpse of a different view A treasured intention wrapped in best wishes That can’t become something new Solar Birds guided by inquiring eyes Solar Birds look up to the solar skies Picture window opening Timeless vistas beckoning… Solar Birds guided by inquiring eyes Solar Birds look up to the solar skies Solar Birds guided by excited eyes Solar Birds look up to the solar skies

We're born to the grid, here's your number kid It's all laid out take aim, welcome to the game Locked in to the ground rules as you make your way What happens when the rules all go away? We're the Apocalypse Cheering Committee We'd all be quite happy if society broke down The poor & the homeless, lords and the gentry Level the field and see who's winning now We don't do any harm, we just spead the alarm We're excited when we hear the end will come next year Be it an ancient prophecy or dubious new cult Let's all have a post false prophetic sulk We're the Apocalypse Cheering Committee We'd all be quite happy if society broke down The poor & the homeless, lords and the gentry Level the field and see who's winning now

7 Sorrows of Stephen (c) & (p) 2016 Ian Roure And we meet up once again As the dusk descends You plot your escape Though there is no light To shine ‘round the bend But you must try anyway The sorrow suffocates To draw a free breath Must seem like it’s worth The risk that you take Bring Southern Wood, Sweet Cicely Is it Mars or Mercury? Cut the Quicksilver loose And cast away The 7 Sorrows of Stephen And do you feel much better? Not just another blue straggler And do you feel much better? Better… And we meet up once again The sorrow never ends You plot your escape Though there’s still no light To shine ‘round the bend But you must try any way The sorrow suffocates To draw a free breath Must seem like it’s worth The risk that you take Bring Juniper, Spring Savoury Is it Mars or Mercury? Now the Quicksilver’s loose What will break The 7 Sorrows of Stephen?
