Track Name: Giant Steps (Radio Edit)
Last night I flew under the earth
I know it's true I swear to you
I unravelled pleasantly
My form was insignificant

I felt love as I shattered down to my atoms
I smiled somewhere inside as I lay in the wind

I settled in a mountain
I felt it through my billion parts
The stones could not contain me
My force was irresistible

So I fell and I flew through the rocks like thin air
'Til I came back together under the sun.

Here is where I am free
An endless possibility
Then I wake and it's gone like it never had been
I'm cold and I'm alone in a world with no imagination

Last night I ran with giant steps
And leaves on trees followed me
Roots and branches kept my step
I knew their names like brothers

Then I stopped at the place where desire was a desert
I brought love as a green sea and no need to breathe

Here is where I am free
An endless possibility
Then I wake and it's gone like it never had been
I'm cold and I'm alone in a world with no imagination

Here is where I am free
An endless possibility
Then a moment I cant tell the difference between
The man who's awake and the man in the dream
Then I wake and it's gone like it never had been
I'm cold and I'm alone in a world with no imagination

Track Name: The Ides Of May
The Ides Of May

My feet passed under a greying sky
I felt out of place in a town not mine
When sudden yellow lights flickered into life
Testing the strength of my stretched out shadow
There in the fading light as I was passing by
I caught the eye of a dark haired woman
We talked a little while, she gave a nervous smile
She asked if I would come inside

Time and trinkets adorned her walls
There was a tiny boy on a plastic horse
And a black and white photograph in pride of place
Of a pretty lady and a tall dark man
She was dressed in velvet and black silk
And I must admit that I felt uneasy
And as I looked towards the door she laughed and said
Boy don’t you even think about leaving

She Said

Beware the ides of May, they will haunt you. Always.

I asked her what she meant, and she said
There are things I cannot explain
In any written language, yet still
You should listen to my claim
Beware the ides of May
And if you sleep with that thought, sleep with it under your pillow
You may yet escape your fate
If you listen when I say

Beware the ides of May, they will haunt you. Always.

I didn’t know what to believe
I took the thought out to the street
She said 2The next time that we meet
You can give it back to me”

Beware the ides of May.
