1. Intro: Navigating By The Stars



2. Sequence I: The Weight

The view from here it is so frightening
A world of tide pools, incompleteness all around

A god beat lightnails
Deep into the flesh of a summer night
Words fell from a paper moon
To come alive into lonely room
Time was standing still
As giants broke the cardboard sword
The old bridge sank into the river
All certainties disappeared

Roads and rivers are winded into a circle
Around the curled up monumental me
Outside looking in time and again
Feeling the weight of a jaded dream

And the view from here is frightening

Far away between Sirius and Vega
All along the Road of the ancient Gods
In the black heart of Orion
Beneath the surface of the soul
The momentum

Everything is so different now
The moon looks down with orphaned eyes
And the lighthouse sens out the fragile signals
To a distant desert sea

Roads and rivers are winded into a circle
Around the curled up monumental dream
Outside looking in, time and time again
Feeling the weight of a jaded me


3. Sequence II: The Lonely Views Of Condors

Sometimes it's coming over me
Like a warm rain
Sometimes it's coming back to me
Like a memory
Just like a heat of endless winters
The cold of midday sun
It's the longest way a man can go
Sometimes it's more than I can take

Last night I spread my wings
Upon two worlds colliding
And somewhere at the monstrous distance
The world, it came down on me

Now I am soaring on lost latitudes
A navigator with no chart
Looking down on all the colours that
Separated day from night

And all the demons in my head
Still permeate the sleap
I will feast upon their strange desires
Bring me something to keep the night away

And here I am
So close and yet to far from you
And here I stand
lost in the echoes of goodbyes
And here I am
Still something left to lose

A world was lost the other day
And I am choking on the sediments
And all the things that cold have been would have been
Are the things than will not let me grow

Drifting from the bitter echoes
And the sillnes far and wide
All alone with the nameless phantoms
Chasing down a lonely road

Sometimes it's coming over me
Like a warm rain
Sometimes it's coming back to me
Like it's all destiny
And here I am
So close and yet to far from you
And here I stand
Lost in the echoes of goodbyes


4. Sequence III: Unbreakable

All around this fortress
Run the rivers of the dead
Broke what seemed to be unbreakable
Unreachable
Drowed what seemed to be inpegnable
Infallible
Cold September rain the summer's retreat
A tapestry of falling stars

This truth is small and truly trite
There's no such thing as permanence
But loss is like an undertow
Pulling you down pulling you down

Because to me, because to me you were unbreakable
Because to me, because to me you were unbreakable
Because to me, because to me you were, you were

Tonight I'm drilling holes
Into the blueprint in me chart
To drain the liquid shades of gray
That run like rivers from my monument
To reach the core to breathe again
Find the long lost words
My credo and my curse:
"We few, we happy few"

When all the world turn into stone
And everything just stays the same
There's no safe harbour in our sight
All beauty sinks into the night
Still we are navigating by the stars

Because to me, because to me you were unbreakable
Because to me, because to me you were unbreakable
Nothing is nothing was nothing ever will be


5. Sequence IV: Stigmata

This feeling speaks
With the quiet flutes of fall
That disturb the sleep of sunken images
The memory of voices in abandoned rooms

Walk with me
Walk with me down to the river's edge
Walk with me
Where the secrets lie and wait

These wounds bleed
The solemn pride of morning
An overwhelming pain nourishing the flame
The cold embrace of breaking heart

Take this pain away
Don't take this pain away
Take this pain away
Don't take this pain away

Walk with me
Walk with me down to the water's edge
Walk with me
Where the mirrors lie and wait

It's breathing darkly through a lonely man
The kiss of brother Cain

Walk with me
Walk with me down to the river's edge
Walk with me
Where the secrets lie and wait

This sadness speaks
Of golden plains and lakes of blue
Like the curse of wrathful god
Like dew dropping from a torn
It speaks of things in secret tongues
It is speaking out a name

Take this pain away
Don't take this pain away
Take this pain away
Don't take this pain away

Walk with me
Walk with me down to the


6. Sequence V: Blue Wide Open

The sky is blue wide open
A grand vision to sink into
Lonely views to stir th eye
Moments of grace outside of the real
The sea is blue wide open
Completeness all around
One step further and the weight gives way
To all the dreams that are

Riding on a sea spray
Falling from the sky
Riding on a sea spray
Blue wide open sea and sky

just like an echo of light
Canned in the heart of the stone
A wayward pules beating in the stillness
Beneath the snow something's breaking through

All in the wind through the the Streen fo Magellan
Beneath the Southern Cross we sail the wild wild sea
To reach all things out of rerach the promise of the name on and ever on
The distant harbour lights of Valparaiso


7. Sequence VI: To The Ones Who Have Failed

Somewhere in the city somewhere in the room
A silent man a work undone a plan that went astray
Somewhere in the limetime of a yearning reverie
Words have lost their meaning on the frangle stage of fame

The sky is starless for the ones who have failed
Going nowhere nowhere to go
Life has no kindness for the ones who have failed
Going somewhere anywhere but home

Sky without stars
Stars without sky
Sky without stars
Stars without sky

Somewhere in a wasteland on a windy railway bridge
A desperate girl is looking down on all she'll leave behind
Somewhere in a subway a vacant name an unknown face
Another everyday disgrace in the roundabouts of life

The sky is starless for the ones who have failed
Going nowhere nowhere to go
Life has no kindness for the ones who have failed
Going somewhere anywhere but home

Sky without stars
Stars without sky
Sky without stars
Stars without sky

The sky is starless for the ones who have failed
Going nowhere nowhere to go
Life has no kindness for the ones who have failed
Going somewhere anywhere but home


8. Sequence VII: Lighthouse

And where will we be tomorrow
If we do not leave today?

The more we wait for things to change
The more they stay the same
And the more they stay the same
We change

With all the floodgates opened
Walls of water at our heels
Where do we go from here?
Where we will turn to?
With all the shouldered load
With all the limitless possibilities

Like birds of passage flying free
Aimlessly soaring
Between time and space sorrow and joy

Through the night and undergrowth
We set out for the sea
Peering adsorbing consuming
And nothing ever good enough

No river too wide
No ocean too deep
No mountain too high
The myriads of open roads

Wayfarers at the crossroads
There's always more than this never more than this
Eyes elude the landmarks
And the flame is swallowed now

No river too wide
No ocean too deep
No mountain too high
The myriads of open roads

Every river too wide
Every ocean too deep
Every mountain too high
The myriads of open roads


9. Sequence VIII: Styx

Sunlight is drowning the halflight
As the feelings return
Strange and familiar a nocturnal fear
Appearing and disappearing

There is the river running deep
And it is floating through the veins
A nameless dread of the unknown
Temporary sight an apprehension
Vague yet saddening

Black angels guiding me
The sum of all my fears
Black angels owning me
Whispering through me

The ties are loosening

Black angels guiding me
me
Into the wordless into the neverland

All sights and sounds slowly dissolve
No gravity no memory

Far off stars in the afterglow
A god removes the veil
I'm holding in and I'm holding it out
Until the strangeness disappears

Last night I heard the waters dreaming
Stones were fast asleep along the riverbed

Let the waters wash all over me and let me dream again
Of something good

Let me dream of sheltered places of precious moments
And of long-lost faces of truthful words that finally do make some sense

Lay out these maps before me
Let me trace again the borderlines of land and sea

Flood the tide pools and wash away the shores
No longer at the mercy of the waves just let me breathe again

Let me stand and bathe in the healing light
And one more time let me navigate just let me navigate by the stars

Roads and rivers a winding in a circle
Around the same old headstrong me
Outside looking in time and time again
Feeling the heat of a recurring dream
