Track Name: Chemical Salvation
Chemical Salvation Em

V1
The Skin is falling off the bone
Dripping slowly to the floor
Would you like to join me?
It’s obscene.
V2
The shadow bleeds through the thorny limbs of time
Pitch black and beautiful to the core
And the eye said “ Would you like to join me”
It’s obscene.
V3
Falling into limitless desire
Emotional turmoil is not required
Could this be my reality
It’s obscene.
V4
Never fear the present, its real
Chemical salvation, how does it make you feel
Intelligent discretion is advised
Strictly over imaginative minds only with a tie
Track Name: Somewhere In The Haze
Somewhere in the haze you lost your way
Somehow you managed to keep the wolves at bay
Fear is lurking behind the corners of the light
But there is hope in you heart that peace will come with the night
But if you take one of these

Fly...................................
The hounds of fear are so far behind
But if you take one of these
Fly..................................

Can you see it now, all so vivid and bright
Death comes in an instant, no need to fight
It's so close now, can you feel everything
The breathe of eternity carresses your skin
But if you take one of these.

Fly...................................
The hounds of fear are so far behind
But if you take one of these
Fly..................................
Track Name: The Spinning
Instrumental
Track Name: Blink of an Eye
In the blink of an eye it was over
I never told a soul how it feels
Did you speak through the eyes of a stranger
Did you ever fall head over heels
In the blink of an eye it was wasted
devoured by the machine
Just another lost soul was created
Seven billion people i'll never see

In the blink of an eye it was over
Can you stand, ca you face the beast
Did you fail to identify the hunter
I hoped our paths would never meet
In the blink of an eye it was over
Now we sail another sea
Did you ever stop, did you ever wonder
Or did you hide behind the deciet
In the blink of an eye it was over
Seven billion people i'll never see
Did you speak through the eyes of a stranger
I hope our path never meets
In the blink of an eye it was over
Did you ever fall head over heels
Did you ever stop, did you ever wonder
I never told a soul how it feels.
Track Name: The Dawning Bright Light
The road ahead is trecherous
Silver crest on the hill
To fall beyond beneath and beyond belief
Quiet my mind, be still

The wind casts shadows around the lonely campfire
Burning so brightly in the middle of the road
But its alright tonight, yes tonight its alright
How doe's it feel to be so alone

Shadows stretch into the night
Dispersed by the howlin' wind
Its becoming clear with the Dawning bright light
Quiet my mind be still

Over the hill and far away
Quiet my mind be still
Standing alone but its ok
Be still my mind be still.
Track Name: Jed McConkey & Tony Floyd Kenna - I Can Only Dream
Across the Ocean, across the sands of time.
Where the footsteps, are washed away
And the only new ones are mine.
The wind blows the shadows roll in the haze of heat,
Like a mirage I think I see. I imagine, we might meet.

But I can only dream i'm there beside you
We talk. hold your hand and smile
But I can only dream i'm there beside you
We talk. hold your hand and smile
Beside you now, wherever you walk.

Thru' the cool shade on the forest path I walk alone and pray.
That somehow time would change behind me
That we would share another day
But I must await my turn
I must stay and hope.
Not easy now to pass the hours Not easy now, to hope...

So I can only dream i'm there, beside you
We talk. hold your hand and smile
But I can only dream i'm there beside you
We talk. hold your hand and smile
beside you now, wherever you walk.

But still I smile, there, by your graveside
And sometimes quietly cry
I'm longing for the day I'll see you
To be there, wherever you walk...
Track Name: Jed McConkey & Tony Floyd Kenna - Black
BLACK

When the shutters come down
And the world doesn't want to know
When the dark closes in
And you have nowhere to go
When you fall down hard
But no one can hear your call
When the night turns black.

And the night is black
And you dont' wanna look back
And the days are so cold
You wonder how you suddenly got old
When the night turns black.

When the shutters come down
And you are all alone
And the light is gone
And its so easy to fall
You're stripped down and bare
You've got nothing at all
You've got nothing at all
When the night turns black.

And the night is black
And you dont' wanna look back
And the days are so cold
You wonder how you suddenly got old
When the night turns black.
Track Name: Jed McConkey & Tony Floyd Kenna - After The Storm
After the Storm


When the storm has passed and you got home at last
How i miss you
And when all has been said, i regret what’s in my head
How i miss you
It seems like a million miles now
I never thought we would make it
And if you just want to close your eyes now

Days were dark, nights were long
My thoughts were lost. I couldn’t hear your song
What might have been, where had you gone
Doesn’t matter now, after the storm

The mystery of life, the jealousy and strife
I thought love was supposed to be true
The joy you give to me, to my very core I can see
How I miss you
So many things to get started
Another chance is what we needed
Forget all the times we were parted

Days were dark, nights were long
My thoughts were lost. I couldn’t hear your song
What might have been, where had you gone
Doesn’t matter now, after the storm
