Track Name: PURPLE FLAG
Purple Flag

Landmines –rats and clowns
Shadows – shine your light
Pictures—same old face
Open—hearts and souls
Leave it—leaving town
Chasing—call the dogs


Chorus: Raise a purple flag
Build another wall
Raise a purple flag
Hear the cry of hungry wolves?
Raise a purple flag
Hear the call?


Heroes?—no one cares
Movies—rated “Me”
Pictures—some young face
Urgent—get in line
Mercy—claim the night
Running—from the dogs
Track Name: GAME OF BLAME
Game of Blame

Are you for real?
A tear they’ll steal.
A heart of glass
What can they feel?

R/ Game of blame: hide the pain
Game of Blame

Fighting for our lives
Borrow from some sorrow
Light a purple candle
Weeping hearts so hollow
Freedom?

R/ Game of blame: hide the pain
Game of Blame
Track Name: PSALM FOR THE LOST
Psalm For The Lost

They steal the night
Poetry for angels
Shattered minds
Memories on ice

The mirror weeps
Or was it deception?
Seeking absolution
Bloodless sacrifice

R/ Amen...so shall it be
Old men...they search for thee

Scared of the light
An angry crowd
Never lose the gift
Never curse the pain

Bitter sentiments
Philosophy of fools
Psalm for the lost
Tears for the hopeless

R/ Amen...so shall it be
Old men...they search for thee
Track Name: REFUGEES AND PILGRIMS
Refugees and Pilgrims

Along the way
The thoughts are frozen
We feel the questions
The end of days?

The river overflows
Knowledge opens for all
The smell of Myrrh
An Angel holds your soul

R/ Shine—slow this world
Shine—behold the Word

Look to the East
Empires crashing
Distorted impressions
Propaganda feast

Refugees and pilgrims
Sorrow forsaken
They vote for madness
Will the war games begin?

R/ Shine—slow this world
Shine—behold the Word
Track Name: LAST CALL (Heed The Drones)
Last Call (Heed the Drones)

Break out into mourning
as the night destroys their fashion.
Call the ‘Warhol’ soldiers
march them to the falling stars.

Paper people, plastic faces
can you see their weathered souls?
They’ll vote in...a new ‘Fuhrer’
and then blame it all on God.

LAST CALL—Heed the Drones!
LAST CALL—Who will count the bones?

Candy minds and big screen puppets
police leave their foxholes.
Someone’s calling for their Mother
Kingdom ‘fools’ are on their knees.

The troops of mercy coming home
and no one even calls their names.
No one knows where Fred lived
but we heard that he once died.

LAST CALL—Heed the Drones!
LAST CALL—Who will count the bones?
Track Name: REQUIEM FOR THE PROPHET OF DOOM
A Requiem for The Prophet of Doom

Full moon lights the Brooklyn sky
A Requiem for the Prophet of Doom
Vinnland’s Army standing guard
Shining a green light one last time
On a world coming down.

Angels cry, but not for the dead
A bloody kiss...no one will ever know.
Alpha and Omega—a legend finds his way home.
He was “the prophet of doom”.

Vichnaya Pamyat
Track Name: BATTLE OF THE THAMES
Battle of the Thames (Moraviantown)

Father, here we are, fighting for a foreign land.
Is this my last breath?

Is this not my paradise?

Where is my beloved...where are my people...my nation...my pride?

I see the raven...coming to take me home.
Track Name: THESE PEOPLE WEEP-Healing Circle
-These People Weep (Healing Circle)-

Great Spirit breathes on the waters
Raven mourns the sunset
The wolves fade into a storm
Blood of martyrs never born

Flight from the East
Prepare a Feast
A Kingdom come
Triumph for the Least

These people wait
These people weep
These people suffer
These people sleep
