LYRICS


[expand title="Angry Sea" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

An ocean full of wicked waves Rolling crashing pounding shapes Head on into a bitter wind Fiercely howling without end


How can I know, can I know close to enough When all I know is, all I know is it’s gonna be rough


We are tossed we are thrown We are lost all alone Everywhere, nowhere we want to be Where it stings where it burns Where the lesson’s always learned Nothing we want, everything we need On an angry sea


When the water is no friend No hope or sign or sight of land One day we’ll all be sailing there We’re meant to face the trouble where How can we know can we know that we’ll have all we’ll need When all we know all we know is that we’re gonna bleed


We are tossed we are thrown We are lost all alone Everywhere, nowhere we want to be Where it stings where it burns Where the lesson’s always learned Nothing we want, everything we need On an angry sea


How can we know can we know that we’ll have all we need When all we know all we know is that we’re gonna bleed


We are tossed we are thrown We are lost all alone Everywhere, nowhere we want to be Where it stings where it burns Where the lesson’s always learned Nothing we want, everything we need On an angry sea On an angry sea

What I see makes me feel What's alive in me is real But somewhere lost in the need A book I don't know how to read


Understanding is the mystery Understanding so sublime The openings of history Opportunities unmined


I wanna build a bridge Lay a brand new path I wanna stretch on out Reach across the gap


Can I frame the honest truth now A most elegant of proofs now Camouflage is not my game Sincerity my only aim


Connection so elusive Connection through a maze Uneasy and obtrusive Wayward in the haze


I wanna build a bridge Lay a brand new path I wanna stretch on out Reach across the gap


In a dream I speak the language In a dream I’m in my mind In a dream I say it clearly In a dream I take my time


I wanna build a bridge/Lay a brand new path I wanna stretch on out/Reach across the gap I wanna build a bridge/Lay a brand new path I wanna stretch on out/Reach across the gap I wanna build a bridge/Make a better way I wanna stretch on out/Let me hear you say

[expand title="Paranoia" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

The soldier lets down his guard All is well He doesn’t hear the drumming All is well But silence is an omen The enemy is coming


Peer round every corner Stand ready on the wall Shout who’s there and state your business When the quiet comes to call Keep a watchful eye Every day and every night Paranoia keeps a love alive


The heart needs to relax All is fine But take your eyes off the prize All is fine And waste precious time Sorting truths from the lies


Peer round every corner Stand ready on the wall Shout who’s there and state your business When the quiet comes to call Keep a watchful eye Every day and every night Paranoia keeps a love alive


All is well a delusion and all is fine an illusion The devil needs no sound to do his work


Peer round every corner Stand ready on the wall Shout who’s there And state your business When the quiet comes to call Keep a watchful eye Every day and every night Paranoia keeps a love alive

[expand title="On My Own" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

The shovel’s in my hand the soil full of stones No choice but to dig so I dig alone


So damn quiet loud as hell Down down into that well


Away out on my own Away from hopeful light Away out on my own The voice calls to me in the night Leave the dark and go on home I won’t make it on my own


When trouble’s through my gate and worry on my mind Seek my neighbors hand leave my pride behind


He knows my tale and maybe more Just drove the wolves from his own door


Away out on my own Away from hopeful light Away out on my own The voice calls to me in the night Leave the dark and go on home I won’t make it on my own

[expand title="Sacred Place" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

How we lay waste our power The poet hit it on the head Outward we lose too many hours When all we do is get and spend


What you are what you might be Clear for only you to see


Where joy and pain And fear and dreams Are truth no lies Inside a sacred place a sacred place


A stubborn block of marble The sculptor stood alone in peace Within the stone he saw an angel And with his chisel set it free


What you are who you will find Will appear to you give it time


Where joy and pain And fear and dreams Are truth no lies Inside a sacred place a sacred place


Where you don’t know your friends Where you don’t know the news Where you don’t know what you owe Where you don’t know who owes you


Where joy and pain And fear and dreams Are truth no lies Inside a sacred place a sacred place
