VOID IN THEIR HEART

ABANDONING THE ROAD

GO IN AND YOU WON'T COME OUT

DOUBLE IDENTITY

SOUL MATE

BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER

QUIETNESS WITHOUT LONELINESS

IN THE KINGDOM OF WHAT KING

OH CHILD - DO NOT GO OUT

ALL CONSUMING FASCINATION

NUMBING SAMENESS

A PIECE IN AN UNSPEAKABLY BEAUTIFUL PUZZLE

BEHIND THE MASK

A SURPRISE IN STORE FOR ME

BRIGHT WITH PROMISE

PAINFUL REBIRTH

THE PEOPLE ARE GROWING RESTLESS

IN THE SMOKY SHADOWS

SHAKEN TO THE FOUNDATIONS

INVENT NEW IDEAS

NEW WAYS OF LIVING

DRIED UP INSIDE

OLD HABITS DIE HARD

DAY OF THE DEAD

THAT COST 7 KINGS THEIR KINGDOM

MY MEMORY IS STILL SWEET WITH

HAVEN OF PEACE

DRIFTING IN THE STREAM OF THE WORLD

DRINK THE LOVE I BRING TO THEE

I WANDER THROUGH NAMELESS LANDS

ON A ROAD THAT NEVER ENDS

A LONG WALK

MY FEET BARELY TOUCH THE GROUND

I WILL FORGE AHEAD

ROUGH ROAD TO REALITY

PENT UP ANTICIPATION

A VESSEL OF GOOD WISHES UNDER SAIL

TO THE ABSOLUTE CORE

GREET THE DAWN

LONGS TO SPREAD ITS WINGS

ARRIVING WITH DUST AND THUNDER

THE STRONG AND SWIFT PREVAILED

A SWIM IN THE SAND

DRY OFF IN THE SEA

I HEAR THE SOUND OF LAUGHING WATER

WILL YOU TURN THE CORNER

I PEOPLED THE SILENT RUBBLE

AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE

TAKE CENTER STAGE

BRACED FOR A BUMPY RIDE

MOMENT BY MOMENT

ABANDONED DREAMS

CLOUDS OF DESPAIR

COULD NEVER CAPTURE THE SOUL

RECOVERING THE MEMORY

TWISTED IN KNOTS

YOU CAN FEEL THE SILENCE

BEYOND PRICE

A GRAY LONELY PLACE

CLEARLY SPOKEN WITH ONE VOICE

UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES

THE WILD ACHING SOLITUDE

THE FUTURE IS IN OUR HANDS

EMPTY OF ALL THINGS HUMAN

EVERY OTHER SOUND CEASED

WEAVING HARMONIES

WHEN THE WORLD SLEEPS

THERE IS NO ESCAPE

ONCE IN A LIFETIME

USE SOFTER LANGUAGE

THEY KEPT ME ON MY KNEES

RESENTMENT SEETHES BENEATH THE SURFACE

DON'T EVER !

FACE THE DAWN

A PERPETUAL PRISON

SO NEAR - YET SO FAR

AS I WANDER THROUGH THE CROWD

MAKE THE LEAP

I'VE COME A LONG WAY

A WILD RIDE

WAVES OF DARKNESS

TOUCH THE SHORES

STRUGGLED TO UNDERSTAND

IT'S ANYONES’ GUESS

RAINING OUT OF THE SKY

AN ETERNAL NIGHT

A SENSE OF SOLITUDE

FOUND MY VOICE

SIZZLING SHOW

THE WOUNDS ARE DEEP

IT LIFTS YOU RIGHT OUT OF YOUR SEAT

A FOREIGNER IN MY OWN COUNTRY

BLOWN AWAY BY THE SWEET PACIFIC BREEZES

WINDOW ON THE WORLD

THE SEA OF THE MOON

LOST IN A TRANCE OF GOLDEN LIGHT

WITH A TOUCH OF ROMANCE

I SEE THE DREAM REFLECTING IN HER EYES

A PIECE OF ALL OF US

SPIN A STORY

SUDDENLY SILENT

THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NO WHERE

MENTAL BAGGAGE

THE SEARCH FOR MEANING

THE FIELD OF MIRACLES

BEATING THE ODDS

STAYING THE COURSE

STEP INTO MY PARLOR

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET

MY STORY IS YOUR STORY

TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY

I AM A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

IRON FLOWERS

THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS

AWFUL WASTE OF SPACE

IN THE LINE OF FIRE

CLEAR CUT ANSWERS

A GLOOMY SILENCE FILLED THE AIR

THE ANSWER DIED WITH

THERE'S A PLACE IN MY MEMORY

THERE'S STILL ROOM IN MY HEART

FRAGILE TREASURES

IN A WHOLE NEW LIGHT

MY ATTENTION WANDERED

EMPTY THE MIND

MIXED EMOTIONS

UNBENDING LOYALTY

THREE COINS IN A FOUNTAIN

CRIES AND WHISPERS

SCATTERED AMONG THE WEEDS

I CAME - I SAW - I CONQUERED IT ALL

SEIZE THE DAY

LIFE AMONG THE RUINS

THEIR INFLUENCE EVAPORATED

CALL UNTIL NO VOICE IS LEFT

RISING STAR

IN THE GREEN GREEN HEART OF

SONS OF THE EARTH

THE OUTLOOK IS BRIGHTER

WEB OF EXISTENCE

IRREPLACEABLE RICHES

BEARING THE BURDEN

TOUCH OF RELIEF

AN OLD MAN SITTING IN SILENT MEDITATION

I CAME TO THE END OF MY JOURNEY

A NEW AND BETTER LIFE

JUST OVER THE NEXT HILL

NO ROAD IS FOREVER

ON THE HAIRY EDGE BETWEEN GLORY AND MADNESS

DEEPLY SATISFYING

LOST IN THOUGHT

DARK DEEP WATERS

NEW AND EXCITING

IN EMPTY SILENCE

ADRIFT IN THOUGHT

HEART OF DARKNESS

THAT DEEP KIND OF CONNECTION

I FEEL THAT I BELONG

HIS PATIENCE WAS WORN THIN

I FELL INTO CONVERSATION

LOOKING FOR A FREE LUNCH

FROM THE SHORE

I LET MY IMAGINATION CARRY ME BACK IN TIME

THE PAIN AND THE BEAUTY OF MY JOURNEY

SANG A LULLABY IN COLORS

QUIVERING WITH FEVER AND EMOTION

OPEN A WINDOW ON THE SOUL

I LOOK AWAY FROM THE PAGE

A WALK IN THE RAIN

AWAKE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

TOUCHED BY FAIRIES

A PIECE OF THE STORY

EVEN THE STARS ARE LONELY

THE ENTIRE NATION COULD BECOME UNGLUED

WHERE TWO WORLDS COLLIDE

A WAR OF WORDS

I HELD THIS PLACE IN MY HEART

THE TREES AND THE WIND SPOKE TO ME

A FORGOTTEN CORNER OF MY MIND

ABSORBING NEW IDEAS

I WENT TO COLLECT MY THOUGHTS

MOVING THROUGH THE MIST

A FOOLS PARADISE

ADORNED IN SPLENDOR

THE FUN IS JUST BEGINNING

A..........WITH A MIND OF ITS OWN

HEART STOPPING MOMENT

MASTER OF THE DEEP

HE NEVER QUIT

LAY TO REST

OVER THE TOP

A FADING SENSE OF HUMOR

A LITTLE MESSAGE FROM FAR AWAY

ROMANCING THE SEA

THE DARKER SIDE

ON THE BRINK OF COLLAPSE

LIVING DANGEROUSLY

WATCH THE CITY AWAKEN

A HOP - SKIP AND A JUMP

BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE

PAUSE AND LOOK CLOSELY

IT STOPPED ME COLD

UNTOUCHED BY THE MODERN WORLD

AT THE FRINGES OF THE MODERN WORLD

A QUIET AND DETACHED PLACE

I CAN'T IMAGINE ANOTHER LIFE

ABIDING PEACE

GATHERING GLOOM

SINGING THE BLUES

BUT THEY WENT HOME

TOPPLING OLD ASSUMPTIONS

I HATE TO LOSE SOMETHING

WORLD IN QUESTION

PICK UP THE PIECES

HOPE ...DYING SLOWLY

A MAGICAL EXPERIENCE

PUSHED INTO THE NIGHT

SPEAK YOUR MIND

A ROLL OF THE DICE

CAUGHT MY IMAGINATION

THE CALL OF DISTANT LANDS

A GREAT LEAP

WE SHARE MEMORIES

THE MOMENT OF GREAT CHANGE

A SEA OF SHOPPERS

THIS IS GOING NOWHERE

SICK WITH LONELINESS

PUSHING HIS LUCK TO THE EDGE

GIVE ME YOUR HAND

THE SWIRLING CROWD

UNRAVELING THE MYSTERY

VEILED IN OBSCURITY

A MARRIAGE THAT HAS TURNED SOUR

LAZY LAUGHTER

DEMANDS OF DAILY LIFE

A PERSONAL QUEST

SPLENDID ISOLATION

IT'S BEEN A LONG DAY

I SAT STILL FOR A MOMENT - WITHOUT BREATHING

A MEMORY OF HOME

HER WORDS RUN THROUGH MY HEAD

VISIT WHAT I HAD LEFT BEHIND

DON'T ALWAYS SEE EYE TO EYE

RETURNING TO HIS ROOTS

OUT OF SIGHT - OUT OF MIND

PLUNGING INTO THE WILD

UNTAMEABLE MAN

THE HUMAN FOOTPRINT

A MOMENT IN THE SUN

TIDAL WAVE OF INFORMATION

THE CLOSING OF THE CIRCLE

PENETRATE BENEATH THE SURFACE

HOPES TO REINVENT HIMSELF

FRESH DISCOVERIES STILL BECKON

HUMAN FACE OF WAR

A SACRED JOY

PRIMITIVE INNOCENCE

UNCORRUPTED BY CIVILIZATION

PROGRESSIVE REALIZATION OF A WORTHWHILE DREAM

YOU DON'T EASILY TAKE THE FOREST OUT OF THE PEOPLE

CONFRONT OUR PROBLEMS AND SHED THEM SO THEY DO NOT IMPRISON US

IF WE CAN'T SOLVE THEM HERE WE CAN'T SOLVE THEM ANYWHERE

SOOTHED BY THE INCANTATIONS OF GILDED PRIESTS

ALL MY CONCENTRATION NARROWS DOWN TO A SINGLE THOUGHT.

RUNS SWIFT WITH A SONG THROUGH ALL BARRIERS

HIDDEN SOMEWHERE DEEP IN THE CORRIDORS OF MY MIND

DISTRAUGHT WORDS FLOATING BY ON THE BREEZE

I STOPPED FOR A MOMENT - ON MY LONELY WAY UNDER THE STARLIGHT

SEARCHING THROUGH THE MURK FOR ONE OPTIMISTIC MAN

I ABSORB THE HEALING BEAUTY OF THE SUNSET OVER BATTICAWA LAGOON

THE WAILING OF A DOG MADE THE NIGHT ACHINGLY LONELY

AFTER THE FIRE...AFTER THE STORM....AFTER THE SMOKE HAS CLEARED

THE RHYTHM OF LIFE WAS BROKEN - SUDDENLY WITHOUT WARNING

A RELEASE FROM HARSH LINES AND CRAMPED SPACES

A LONE FISHERMAN CASTING HIS NET FROM THE ROCK STREWN SHORE

A WORLD LIT BY COMPUTER SCREENS INSTEAD OF THE SUN

OPENED A WINDOW ON A WORLD THAT HAD BEEN ALL BUT FORBIDDEN

ON A WINDY NIGHT IN THE WORLDS MEANEST TOWN

THE VASTNESS OF NOTHING -TO ME EXTREMITIES OF NOWHERE

RHYTHM OF RURAL LIFE

AN AROUND THE CLOCK OBSESSION

POETIC FRENZY

MOMENTARY EDEN

WINDS OF CHANGE START TO BLOW

DOESN'T DAMPEN THE CURIOSITY

TO DEEP FOR WORDS

THE CITY SMELLS OF MONEY

THE EDGE OF EXTINCTION

THE BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY WAS A VISUAL FEAST

MY EDUCATION GAVE ME A GIANT LEAP FORWARD IN LIFE

RHYTHM OF THEIR LIVES

IT COLORS EVERY DETAIL OF LIFE

IN A MOMENT OF CLARITY

THUNDER OF WAR

SHOULDERING THE BURDENS OF WAR

UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF THE MIND

SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT
