Track Name: Pilot
Am I the pilot?
Am I the sky?
Am I the question?
Am I the reply?
I get turned around
Inside the sound

Lost in the radio waves—
Best thing I've ever heard
Strange all the time that it saves
When you don't have to say a word

Am I the traveller?
Am I the road?
Am I the solution,
Or am I the code?
There's a world inside
Where we collide

Lost in the radio waves—
Best thing I've ever heard
Strange all the time that it saves
When you don't have to say a word

Fall down the corridor crashing—
Blue in the melting walls
Dream an invisible canyon—
Light is the tread of time

Lost in the radio waves—
Best thing I've ever heard
Strange all the time that it saves
When you don't have to say a word
Track Name: Vanishing (instrumental version)
Instrumental.
Track Name: The Twilight Sea
Rising fast;
Going under
There at last—
Staring wonder
In your hands
Is a strange thing—
Melting sands
When the stars ring

Deep liquid skyline
Full white sails on twilight sea

Thought it strong
Architecture
All along,
All conjecture
Lonely night
Fills the window—
Reachless height
Keeps you down low

Deep liquid skyline
Full white sails on twilight sea

Still the pain
always comes back
When the rain
Turns the sky black
Set me free,
Song of sorrow
Cross the sea
Reigns tomorrow

Deep liquid skyline
Full white sails on twilight sea
Track Name: Mountain Song
I give this song to the open air:
A song no one will hear—
Won't even know it's there.
I will play through it once, and then I will go,
And you will not find me on the radio.

There is a timeless moon in the clouds of white,
There is a stirring wind on the fields at night—
And I would stand among these constant things,
If I could sing the song that the mountain sings.

But recognition fails—
Takes one to know.
And when have I had a face I could show?

Some time ago, there was a fire,
And every day was climbing higher,
But sinking now, it seems unreal—
The whole world can change with the way you feel.

Recognition fails—
Takes one to know.
And when have I had a face I could show?

So I'll give this song to the open air—
Or perhaps the song was always there,
And maybe it is I who will fade away—
There is so little time, and so much to say.
I will play through it once, and then I will go,
And you will not find me on the radio.
