Track Name: Israfel
In Heaven a spirit doth dwell
"Whose heart-strings are a lute";
None sing so wildly well
As the angel Israfel,
And the giddy stars (so legends tell),
Ceasing their hymns, attend the spell
Of his voice, all mute.
Tottering above
In her highest noon,
The enamored moon
Blushes with love,
While, to listen, the red levin
(With the rapid Pleiads, even,
Which were seven,)
Pauses in Heaven.
And they say (the starry choir
And the other listening things)
That Israfeli's fire
Is owing to that lyre
By which he sits and sings-
The trembling living wire
Of those unusual strings.
But the skies that angel trod,
Where deep thoughts are a duty-
Where Love's a grown-up God-
Where the Houri glances are
Imbued with all the beauty
Which we worship in a star.
Therefore thou art not wrong,
Israfeli, who despisest
An unimpassioned song;
To thee the laurels belong,
Best bard, because the wisest!
Merrily live, and long!






The ecstasies above
With thy burning measures suit-
Thy grief, thy joy, thy hate, thy love,
With the fervor of thy lute-
Well may the stars be mute!
Yes, Heaven is thine; but this
Is a world of sweets and sours;
Our flowers are merely–flowers,
And the shadow of thy perfect bliss
Is the sunshine of ours.
If I could dwell
Where Israfel
Hath dwelt, and he where I,
He might not sing so wildly well
A mortal melody,
While a bolder note than this might swell
From my lyre within the sky.
Track Name: Sarajevo'94
AND NOW,
LOOK AT MY LIGHT
LOOK AT MY LIFE!
WE'VE ALL BEEN BURIED DOWN FOR YEARS

OUT OF A SHELL
OF A GRAVE
WE'RE ALL COMING BACK FROM BONFIRE YEARS!

WHICH ONE HAS ITS WORTH NOW?
IN WHICH IS OUR WORLD LEFT?
IT'S UNDER THE ASHES OF SOME LIFETIME
IN ABANDONMENT RELEASED

YOU BROUGHT RUIN TO MY SOUL
AND DROVE FIRE OVER HEARTACHE
OF THOSE WHO FELL SOME STILL ROAM
THROUGH HUMAN PARADISE LEFTOVERS

I CAN BREATHE WHAT ONCE WAS AIR
AND ADMIRE WHAT WERE FLOWERS
BUT SOME MEMORIES STILL PASS ME BY
IN WHICH THE FUTURE IS BUT PAST

AND FROM THOSE I SPEAK NONE DARES TO LEARN
WHO WAS MAN AND WHO WAS WORM!
Track Name: They Don't Know
IN THIS REMEMBRANCE OF FATE
WE GREW UNTO THE PLANE OF THE SKY
NOW WHO WILL SET THE BREATHING SPIRIT FREE?
AND WHO WILL LEAD US FROM THE PROMISED LAND?

THEY DON'T KNOW
BUT NONE WILL STAY
THE DEATH HOLDS SWAY
THEY DON'T KNOW
AND NONE WILL WAIT
LIFE WILL WAIT

MOST WILL GIVE UP ON THIS ELUSIVE PATH
THE REST WILL STEP WHERE LIVING NEVER DO
YET IN THIS SENTENCE I SEE MORE THAT DEATH
CAN I FIND HOPE WHERE ALL THE OTHERS FAIL?

THE YDON'T KNOW
AND NONE WILL SAY
THE DEATH HOLDS SWAY
THEY DON'T KNOW
AND NONE WILL WAIT
LIFE MUST WAIT

A ROAD FROM GOD IS SO LONG
A DESOLATION IN ALL PAIN AND WASTE
BUT IN THE END WHEN WE RUN OUT OF LIFE
WHO REALLY SERVES AND WHO IS REALLY SERVED?

THEY DON'T KNOW
AND NONE WILL SAY
THE DEATH HOLDS SWAY
THEY DON'T KNOW
AND NONE WILL WAIT
LIFE WILL WAIT

DARE YOU WAIT?!
