Track Name: Island
Words: Findlay/Kerzner
Music: Kerzner

Somewhere just behind the darkness
Veils a shimmering of light
And I find where the shadows fall
Shifts the labyrinth of time
I will be an Island
All will quiet down

There is wonder there is sadness
There is certainty and doubt
But really love is all around us
And we’ll never be without

All the weight of the past
Disintegrates into the moment
And all sounds they resonate so clearly now
All we see without our eyes
I will be an Island
All will quiet down
All hail to the silence
Take off this paper crown
There is wonder there is sadness
There is certainty and doubt
But really love is all around us
And we’ll never be without
Never be without
All we need is
Here and now
All the synergy
That we allow
All your worries
Let them go
Just become the wind that blows


There is wonder there is sadness
There is certainty and doubt
But really love is all around us
Forever
Never been without
Track Name: Mountain Spring
Words: Findlay
Music: Kerzner

Long gone the innocence
Of forgotten avenues
Time leapt through the looking glass
Airing different points of view
I danced with a broken past
And I jumped through every hoop
Thought I could run away
From the turning of the screw

Dark streets in another town
No father to be found
I see a lonely boy
With a longing in his blood
And I know that love
Was never quite enough
Hell bent on being free
Thought I'd buried it for good

I'm done with anger
Your one and only
I'm done with agony this time
I'll find an island
Lay it down to die
From now I see you
As a loveless child

I found deliverance
In the breaking of the news
Though I'd waited for your face
Inside I always knew
We'd said our last goodbye
There was nothing I could do
I had to let you go
Start living with the truth

I'm done with anger
Your one and only
I'm done with agony this time
I'll find an island
Lay it down to die
From now I see you
As a loveless child

I'm letting go now
I'm letting go
Free as the mountain spring that flows
I'm letting go now
I'm letting go

Lay it down to die
Your one and only
This time
Is a love-less child
Is a love-less child
I'm done...
Track Name: Every Corner
Words: Findlay
Music: Kerzner

Awake
Lying here awake
The silence reverberates with your essence
Like a storm in an echo chamber
Its gentle every increasing ripples wash over me
Like sunlight
Like Summer
Like gold you glimmer through the blackness
And like a diamond you cut through the dark
There is no end
Like there was no beginning
Just an always
A liquidity
A light
That finds
Every corner
A moment that just is
And is
And is
Affinity
Infinity
Divinity
Divine
You came
And I began
