Sinking 04:33
Sinking Words and Music by Dawn Xiana Moon O mon Dieu, sauve-moi J'ai de l'eau jusqu'au cou Dans la boue je m'enlise Sans point d'appui me voici Descendu au plus profond des eaux Save me, O God For the waters have come up to my neck I sink in the miry depths And the floods engulf me Je m'épuise à crier Mon gosier est brûlant, Mes yeux se sont usés A t'attendre mon Dieu I am worn out, calling for help My throat is parched My eyes fail, looking for my God Rescue me Rescue me Do not let me sink Tire-moi de la boue Ne m'engloutisse pas Que le gouffre béant Ne me dévore pas Answer me Out of the goodness of your love Réponds-moi, Eternel Ton amour est si bon Dans ta grande tendresse Occupe-toi de moi (Based on Psalm 69) © 2003

We're wanting to stay But this all goes away We'll be ok Them I can't say When all is falling down They're speaking up now Seeing our sins laid bare Always the wasting share Feeling so good In spite of you Oh I'm not afraid There's more to change We should awake Don't think don't wait Don't stay home all day We were no good We wanted it all We'll never go on on on Never the same no way Never the same You run away You run all day

I was swept to sea while trying to be poetic It always takes a tragedy to put it in perspective I’ve been living through a drought that never leaves My inspiration’s gone as well as my beliefs Well they say that David didn’t pen a psalm for seven years Or did the words he write just disappear? The waves came so suddenly today Did my friends all leave me, or was I swept away? Well David lived through his dry season, and I guess I will too To find my peace before being taken by this dangerous blue And I don’t know why I still sang Hallelujah to my king Maybe it’s habit, or maybe it’s deeper than everything I woke up on the beach with a million fish I know I prayed for rain, but I never meant like this Well they say that David didn’t pen a psalm for seven years Or did the words he write just disappear? Paper can burn, why do I hope these words immortal? And then you said “it’s still all elemental”

Tides 04:13
On the crest of the horizon, a new world waits for me; The naked eye can’t see it, but it is reality. Across the ocean waves, a million miles away; Take me home again, to forget my yesterdays. Tides rolling in, the highs and the lows; Breathing in today, to restore my soul. Tides rolling in, to wash away the storms; Makin’ room for my life, time to be reborn. A distant memory, of a truth I once knew; Surviving the years, too afraid to move. Until the water cleansed me, a mountain stream of tears; Flowed down the banks of my heart, spilling over my fears. Tides rolling in, the highs and the lows; Breathing in today, to restore my soul. Tides rolling in, to wash away the storms; Makin’ room for my life, time to be reborn. Strength is a gift, patient and kind; Too many tricks have been played, in the depths of our minds; But a sweet revelation, to have and to hold, Is precious to embrace, as it finally unfolds.

Fade to white... Don’t let them see me in the light... Of day Make them all go away My heart has grown cold. This world, see weary and old Chorus And you know you’re the last of your kind When they all say that you’ve lost your mind Because you’re the only one who sees what is happening around And those rose-colored glasses are all broken down Then you know, you’re the last unicorn in the world Old Virgin Queen Became so sullen and mean And we smoked our last cigarette On the night she was crucified Pre-chorus And the hurt and the pain, it just won’t go away And there’s nobody left for me to blame or share in the shame Ain’t that a damn shame This used to be something when we were all something But now everything has all changed Everyone’s blinded don’t wanna be reminded of what we’ve What we’ve become When they all say that you’ve lost your mind Because you’re the only one who sees what is happening around And those rose-colored glasses are all broken down You’re the only one who sees what is happening around And those rose-colored glasses are all broken down Then you know, you’re the last unicorn Then you know, you’re the last unicorn Yes I know, I’m the last unicorn in the world Coda Fade to white... Don’t let them see me in the light

It’s a story of greed It’s a song about death It’s a story of those Who want all the wealth They have more money Than a country can spend And their quest for more is all they defend Their greed has no logic Like a diamond it’s pure Their hunger is deep It seems there’s no cure Like David’s Goliath He must be taken down I’ll hold his head under water till I’m sure that he’s drowned Now the world’s getting warmer Is an apocalypse near? I’m tryin’ to think straight But I’m too full of fear Can I explain to my children With my mind on the brink Why there ‘s so much water and nothing to drink
