Track Name: Kedeira
KEDEIRA
I met a man as he was breathing
All across the barren land
He showed me how to be fruitful
As I take my final stand
Oh, I don't plan to leave you here
But I will do as I must
Step on a New York highway
Past fields of fire and rust
I've seen Kedeira in a dream
I've seen Kedeira in a dream
Trading skin like water
Turns bones grey unlike before
Yes, I like the lifestyle you furnished
As you showed me the exit door
This war leaves no survivors
Who know what they're surviving for
Night carried away by the calling
Back to you I'm drawn even more
I've seen Kedeira in a dream
I've seen Kedeira in a dream
When I come up on my fortune
I'll remember
You've been kind to me
While I sit in the corner
Recovering from a bender
I still remember what I'm meant to be
Folded in forbidden smiles
An expedition cast aside
Your love affair with this soldier
Got lost in the timeless a while
Dark precious hours
Are eating my flesh away
I tossed my prayer into the wind
I'll win you back someday
I've seen Kedeira in a dream
I've seen Kedeira in a dream
Track Name: Subway Station
SUBWAY STATION
On your own for the first time
Holding court beside a stream
They let you go up on the mountain
Until you disappeared in green
Forge of fire has given birth
To a sword of golden twine
Mirror sees me facing her
Naked river flowing wine
Somebody told me that freedom for you
No longer held such gripping fascination
Why don't you let your old fears slip away
Meet me at the subway station
This helpless day
An empty palate on which I paint
The scenes I see around you
Through a mist of passing rain
When time takes on the rhythm
Of an open spinning cage
Are you waiting for me Momma
Like a bookmark on the page
Where we'll read that freedom for you
May once again hold thorough fascination
Why don't you let your old fears slip away
Meet me at the subway station
Inspiration sister
Brother drowning in the sea
Find hidden shores beneath our feet
To step on casually
Time stretches on before me
Sometimes rolling down the hill
Whatever your impression
I'll keep on rolling 'til
You tell me that freedom is for you
A pervasive spark of good old fascination
Why don't you let your old fears slip away
Meet me at the subway station
