INFO & LYRICS

SIBERIAN KHATRU

Sing, bird of prey;
Beauty begins at the foot of you. Do you believe the manner?
Gold stainless nail,
Torn through the distance of man
As they regard the summit.

Even Siberia goes through the motions.
Hold out and hold up;
Hold down the window. Outbound, river,
Hold out the morning that comes into view. Bluetail, tailfly.
River running right on over my head.

How does she sing?
Who holds the ring? And ring and you will find me coming.
Cold reigning king,
Hold all the secrets from you
As they produce the movement.

Even Siberia goes through the motions.
Hold out and hold up;
Hold down the window. Outbound, river,
Hold out the morning that comes into view. Bluetail, tailfly.
River running right over the outboard, river,
Bluetail, tailfly,
Luther, in time.
Dood’ndoodit, dah, d’t-d’t-dah.

Hold down the window;
Hold out the morning that comes into view.
Warm side, the tower;
Green leaves reveal the heart spoken Khatru.

Gold stainless nail,
Torn through the distance of man as they regard the summit.
Cold reigning king,
Shelter the women that sing
As they produce the movement.
River running right on over,
Then over my head. Outboard, river.

Bluetail, tailfly,
Luther, in time,
Suntower, asking,
Cover, lover,
June cast, moon fast,
As one changes,
Heart gold, leaver,
Soul mark, mover,
Christian, changer,
Called out, saviour,
Moon gate, climber,
Turn round, glider.

MAGNIFICATION

Days that we speak
I believe that you are right
Shouldn’t chase the demons and the phantoms of the night

Some treat as lovers
Some treat as slaves
This fusion of insight is all that we imagine

Speak to me clearly
You’re the magnet to my soul
I get so distracted to reason with it all
Like the faithful
I’m clinging to the edge of every world
Spinning in creation
So afraid to let my feelings really show

Teach me to teach me
How the keys unlock the door
As we open it we surrender, holding hands with many more

There’s a feeling that’s coming
There’s a feeling so real
To justify, to magnify, to realize that everything is love

Now, after all the love you have
You can always get it back
Knowing how you really see
Knowing it will come to you
Knowing that it can really be

Magnificate, magnification
Magnificate, magnification
First you’re smaller being alive
Growing taller learn to survive
Magnificate, magnification
Magnificate, magnification
First you’re smaller being alive
Growing taller learn to survive

Perception of living
I realize I’m not alone
The rings that divide us
Break again upon the stone
I will show you a necklace
Where the pearls would all be lost
Without the thread between together
This would be the golden thread of trust

Speak to me, teach me
Magnify the truth you are
Waiting for the rebeginning birth of every star

A symbol is planted
On the brow of every child
To justify, to magnify
To realize that everything is love

Now giving all the love you have now
You will always get it back now
Giving all the love you have now
You will always get it back
Giving all the love you have
Giving all the love

Magnificate, magnification
Magnificate, magnification
First you’re smaller being alive
Growing taller learn to survive

DON’T KILL THE WHALE

You’re first I’m last
You’re thirst I’m asked to justify
Killing our last heaven beast
Don’t hunt the whale

In beauty vision
Do we offer much
If we reason with destiny, gonna lose our touch
Don’t kill the whale

Rejoice they sing
They worship their own space
In a moment of love, they will die for their grace
Don’t kill the whale

If time will allow
We will judge all who came
In the wake of our new age to stand for the frail
Don’t kill the whale

IN THE PRESENCE OF

Deeper than every ocean
Deeper than every river
That’s what your presence brings to me

Revealing the words I listen
Seeing you in my silence
Learning I’m with you constantly
As I was before

If we were flowers
We would worship the sun
So why not now?
This high is shining brightly
Brighter than before

As the door was open wide
There inside was a diamond chair
Where I sat when I was young
I wrote down the words

Only when the young at heart
Can enter the real world
This chance I’ve waited for
For you to see

If I had chances I would spend them with you
To hold you close and let your love surround me
Deeper than before

(Deeper than every ocean)
And I know this love is real
(Deeper than every river)
Realize this is meant to be
That’s what your eyes they say to me
You are listening to how I feel
So expectedly
(Brighter than every morning)
From the ocean to the sky
(Beautiful as the sunset)
Every river to the sea
Nature surrounds me constantly
We can hear love constantly
This is for you and me

Turn around and come deeper now
So what happens when I touch you there
You feel the words roll over you
Thinking of the better scenes
The memories
As everybody else just
Hasn’t got the time
To help you anymore

‘Cause if the reason for
The things that pleasure us
To please ourselves
Not pressure us
To give our ego
Some pleasure time

Can you imagine
Any reason
To know you’re only fooling yourself
And then you’ll understand why
You’ll understand why

So if we choose to realize
All existence is a dream
This perfect resume to you
From me

Just had a tough time with magic
The death of ego
The moon
It was just coming through

Send me such a good time
In a letter form, tell me
The pleasure, no pressure
Pure imagination in a metaphoric dream

I get amazed like a true beginner
I get amazed like a true believer
I get amazed when I see you there
And I come alive

I believe I’m a true beginner
I believe I’m a true beginner
In your arms I can see it all
I can see it all

If we were flowers
We would worship the sun
So why not now?
This light is burning brightly
This light is burning brightly
Brighter than before
Brighter than before
Brighter than before
Brighter than before

Turn around and remember that
When it gets so low
As you finally hit the ground

Turn around and remember that
Now I’m standing tall
Standing on my sacred ground

Turn around and remember that
When it gets so low
As you finally hit the ground

Turn around and remember that
Now you’re standing tall
Standing on sacred ground
Standing on sacred ground
Standing on sacred ground

We have heaven

SOUTH SIDE OF THE SKY

A river a mountain to be crossed
The sunshine in mountains sometimes lost
Around the south side so cold that we cried
Were we ever colder on that day
A million miles away
It seemed from all of eternity

Move forward was my friend’s only cry
In deeper to somewhere we could lie
And rest for the the day with cold in the way
Were we ever colder on that day
A million miles away
It seemed from all of eternity

The moments seemed lost in all the noise
A snow storm a stimulating voice
Of warmth of the sky
Of warmth when you die
Were we ever warmer on that day
A million miles away
It seemed from all of eternity

The sunshine in mountains sometimes lost
The river can disregard the cost
And melt in the sky warmth when you die
Were we ever warmer on that day a million miles away
We seemed from all of eternity

AND YOU AND I

I. Cord Of Life
(Anderson/Bruford/Howe/Squire)

A man conceived a moment’s answers to the dream,
Staying the flowers daily, sensing all the themes.
As a foundation left to create the spiral aim,
A movement regained and regarded both the same,
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you.

Changed only for a sight of sound, the space agreed.
Between the picture of time behind the face of need,
Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid,
Emotion revealed as the ocean maid,
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you.
Oh.

Turn round tailor, Coins and
Assaulting all the mornings of the Crosses
Interest shown, Never know
Presenting one another to the cord, Their fruitless worth;
All left dying, rediscovered Cords are broken,
Of the door that turned round, Locked inside
To close the cover, the mother earth.
All the interest shown, They won’t
To turn one another, to the sign Hide, hold, they won’t
At the time Tell you, watching the world,
To float your climb. Watching all of the world,
Watching us go by.

And you and I climb over the sea to the valley,
And you and I reached out for reasons to call.

II. Eclipse
(Anderson/Bruford/Squire)

Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid,
Emotion revealed as the ocean maid,
As a movement regained and regarded both the same,
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you.

III. The Preacher the Teacher
(Anderson/Bruford/Howe/Squire)

Sad preacher nailed upon the coloured door of time;
Insane teacher be there reminded of the rhyme.
There’ll be no mutant enemy we shall certify;
Political ends, as sad remains, will die.
Reach out as forward tastes begin to enter you.
Ooh, ooh.

I listened hard but could not see
Life tempo change out and inside me.
The preacher trained in all to lose his name;
The teacher travels, asking to be shown the same.
In the end, we’ll agree, we’ll accept, we’ll immortalise
That the truth of the man maturing in his eyes,
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you.

Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid,
As a moment regained and regarded both the same,
Emotion revealed as the ocean maid,
A clearer future, morning, evening, nights with you.

IV. Apocalypse (Anderson/Bruford/Howe/Squire)

And you and I climb, crossing the shapes of the morning.
And you and I climb, over the sun for the river.
And you and I climb, clearer, towards the movement.
And you and I called over valleys of endless seas.

TO BE OVER

We go sailing down the calming streams,
Drifting endlessly by the bridge.
To be over, we will see, to be over.

Do not suffer through the game of chance that plays;
Always doors to lock away your dreams.
Think it over, time will heal your fear, think it over.
Balance the thoughts that release within you.

Childlike soul dreamer.
One journey, one to seek and see in ev’ry light
Do open true pathways away.

Carrying closer,
Go gently, holding doors will open ev’ry way
You wander true pathways away.

After all your soul will still surrender.
After all don’t doubt your part,
Be ready to be loved.

SHOW ME

Show me the man who is lost in the forces of love
Show me the man who’s sad dreams just wont fade away
Show me the doors where I don’t understand what it is

I would show you a man who is lonely
I would show you a man who is lost and afraid

Show me the children who remember their own father now
Show me the children who just don’t sleep anymore
Show me the days where I don’t understand what it is

I would show you a child who is lonely
I would show you a child who is lost and afraid

Everybody seems to loose their sense in what the believe in
Misunderstanding what is true
Any one in love can realize that all you need
Is to be good to yourself
To be good to yourself

Show me a world without life, without hope anymore
Show me the days we’ve forgotten all the songs that we sing
Today is the day I can see what it’s all really for

I would show you a man he would dance for love
I would show you a man he would love to love
I would show you a man he would dance for love!
I would show you a man he would love to love!

I would show you a child who has everything
I would show you a child who has everything
I would show you a child who has everything
I would show you a child who has everything

HEART OF THE SUNRISE

Love comes to you and you follow
Lose one on to the heart of the sunrise
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with it’s arms
All around me

Lost on a wave and then after
Dream on on to the heart of the sunrise
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with so many around me
Lost in the city

Lost in their eyes as you hurry by
Counting the broken ties they decide
Love comes to you and then after
Dream on on to the heart of the sunrise
Lost on a wave that you’re dreaming
Dream on on to the heart of the sunrise
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with it’s arms all around
Me
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with so many around me
I feel lost in the city

Lost in their eyes as you hurry by
Counting the broken ties they decided

Straightt light moving and removing
SHARPNESS of the colour sun shine
Straight light searching all the meanings
Of the song
Long last treatment of the telling that
Relates to all the words sung
Dreamer easy in the chair that really fits
You

Love comes to you and then after
Dream on on to the heart of the sunrise
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with it’s arms all around
Me
SHARP-DISTANCE
How can the wind with so many around me
I feel lost in the city

LONG DISTANCE RUNAROUND

Long distance runaround
Long time waiting to feel the sound
I still remember the dream there
I still remember the time you said goodbye
Did we really tell lies
Letting in the sunshine
Did we really count to one hundred

Cold summer listening
Hot colour melting the anger to stone
I still remember the dream there
I still remember the time you said goodbye
Did we really tell lies
Did we really count to one hundred

(REPEAT VERSES)

Looking for the sunshine

AWAKEN

High vibration go on
To the sun
Oh, let my heart dreaming
Past a mortal as me
Where can I be?

Wish the sun to stand still
Reaching out to touch our all being
Past all mortal as we
Here we can be
(He can be here)
(Be here now)
Here we can be

Suns | High | Streams | Through
Awaken gentle mass touch
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touch
(Gentle mass touch)

Strong | Dreams | Reign | Here
Awaken gentle mass touch
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touch
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touch

(Star | Song)

Star | Song | Age | Less
Awaken gentle mass touching
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touching
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touching
Touching…
Touching…
Touching…

Workings of man
Set to ply out historical life
Reregaining the flower of the fruit of his tree
All awakening
All restoring you

Workings of man
Crying out from the fire set aflame
By his blindness to see
That the warmth of his being
Is promised for his seeing
His reaching so clearly

Workings of man
Driven far from the path
Rereleased in inhibitions
So that all is left for you
All is left for you
All is left for you
All is left for you NOW…

Master of images
Songs cast a light on you
Hark thru dark ties
That tunnel us out of sane existence
In challenge as direct
As eyes see young stars assemble

Master of light
All pure chance
As exists cross divided
In all encircling mode
Oh closely guided plan
Awaken in our heart

Master of soul
Set to touch
All impenetrable youth
Ask away
That thought be contact
With all that’s clear
Be honest with yourself
There’s no doubt
No doubt

Master of time
Setting sail
Over all our lands
And as we look
Forever closer
Shall we now bid
Farewell farewell…

High vibration go on
To the sun, oh let my heart dreaming
Past a mortal as me
Where can I be

Wish the sun to stand still
Reaching out to touch our own being
Past all mortal as we
Here we can be

Like the time I ran away
Turned around and you were standing close to me
Like the time I ran away
Turned around and you were standing close to me

ROUNDABOUT

I’ll be the round about
The words will make you out ‘n’ out
I’ll spend the day your way……
Call it morning driving thru the sound and
In and out the valley……

The muses dance and sing
They make the children really ring
I’ll spend the day your way
Call it morning driving thru the sound and
In and out the valley…..

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky
and they Stand there
One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see you
Ten true summers we’ll be there and
Laughing too
Twenty four before my love you’ll see I’ll be
There with you

I will remember you
Your silhouette will charge the view
Of distance atmosphere……
Call it morning driving thru the sound and
Even in the valley……

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky
and they Stand there
One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see you
Ten true summers we’ll be there and
Laughing too ooo oo oo
Twenty four before my love you’ll see I’ll be
There with you

Along the drifting cloud the eagle searching
Down on the land
Catching the swirling wind the sailor sees
The rim of the land
The eagle’s dancing wings create as weather
Spins out of hand

Go closer hold the land feel partly no more
Than grains of sand
We stand to lose all time a thousand answers
By in our hand
Next to your deeper fears we stand
Surrounded by million years

I’ll be the roundabout
The words will make you out ‘n’ out
I’ll be the roundabout
The words will make you out ‘n’ out……..

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky they
Stand there
Twenty four before my love and I’ll be
There……..

I’ll be the roundabout
The words will make you out ‘n’ out
We spend the day your way
Call it morning driving thru the sound and
In and out the valley…. eh

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky and they
Stand there
One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see You
Ten true summers we’ll be there and
Laughing too ooo
Twenty four before my love you’ll see I’ll be
There with you…..
