Track Name: Born to the Morning Sun
Nighty Night
You call to the morning sun
and cry by the river lights

It's a dawn blushed
Boiling through your blood
Born to the morning sun

Nighty Night
You dance to the western moon
and fall in the rain
born to the morning sun
born to the morning sun
Track Name: Visions (Misty Ships Crash into the Rocks)
I had a vision of the angel Gabriel
His eyes were storms
but I was blind
Though these arms might fail, my brothers
just heed my call to be

And help me ride
this fiery wind

Morning will come
And I will pray
a vigil of gods
calling your name
it's a vision of infinite
don't talk to me
it has to be
just heed my call to be

And help me ride
this fiery wind
Track Name: La Tinsani لا تنساني
تصادم قلبي
تصادم شمسي
آه يا عيني

فلا تنساني
في عينه الملام
فلا تنساني
Track Name: World Keeps Spinning
This world will keep on spinning
when its wild horses turn to dust
in the shadow of a coal mountain
this world will keep on spinning

This world will keep on spinning
When its wild horses turn to dust

This world will keep on spinning
When its wild horses turn to dust
