Track Name: Hymn for Hypatia
καὶ τὸ φῶς ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ φαίνει, καὶ ἡ σκοτία αὐτὸ οὐ κατέλαβεν
(And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not)

I wait patiently for you
but tell me how long must I wait for your love
how long must I wait for your love
Track Name: How Long
you'll never know what God is for
until you fight a holy war
you hold the fire 'cos you can
and call yourself a modern man

but tell me
how long must I wait for your love?
how long must I wait for your love?

protection's not for everyone
some fly their hearts close to the sun

I'm a fool I'm a fool for cryin'
but you're just cruel you're just cruel you're just cruel to leave me dyin'

where'd you hide emotion?
you're the lucky one
patience I don't know
sooner or later well you're gonna find it
ooh your love your love your love will open when you say it

so tell me
how long must I wait for your love?
tell me tell me now
how long must I wait for your love?

I don't wanna wait
I don't wanna wait no more no more
I don't wanna wait for it no more
I don't wanna stand out on the surface of your heart

so tell me
how long must I wait for your love?
how long must I wait for your love?
tell me tell me child
how long must I wait for your love?
tell me
how long must I wait for your love?

I don't wanna wait for it no more
I don't wanna stand out on the surface of your heart
Track Name: Kings of Queens
Man on first / boys in blue & orange burst
Winning now / chances are they’ll lose somehow
Get your fix / like you did in ’86
The bad guys won / party kids have all the fun

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule
There will always be a crowd to fool
Kings of Queens / with no means to rule the world
To rule the world

Man on third / loudest sound you ever heard
C’mon Amazin’s / give us the feelin’ we still believe in
Miracles / triple crowns and walk-off chills
Stealing home / in-between you’re all alone

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule
There will always be a crowd to fool
Kings of Queens / with no means to rule the world
To rule the world

C’mon Amazin’s / give us the feelin’
C’mon Amazin’s / give us the feelin’
We still believe in

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule
There will always be a crowd to fool
Kings of Queens / with no means to rule the world
To rule the world

C’mon Amazin’s / give us the feelin’
C’mon Amazin’s / give us the feelin’
We still believe in
Track Name: Stand Under My Love
somebody on the left
somebody on the right
somebody in the dark
somebody in the light

they're harder than stone
make you feel so all alone
the drugs don't work
there's too much hurt
gotta find another road
gotta bear the heavy load somehow

big sky come crashing down
there has to be a place for us in this world
with a little shelter from up above
little lies at every turn
I wanna be the face you trust in this world
when you need a little shelter
stand under my love

somebody in the right
somebody in the wrong
shaking hands with a devil mind
paying for protection but there's none

hand on my heart
when the future falls apart
and the fire won't burn
and the wheels won't turn
when there's not another road
we will bear the heavy load together

big sky come crashing down
there has to be a place for us in this world
with a little shelter from up above
little lies at every turn
I wanna be the face you trust in this world
when you need a little shelter
stand under my love

well the story is in stone
and the future may be known
when there's nothing left to say
I'll cover you, I'll cover you babe
together we'll last for another day

big sky come crashing down
there has to be a place for us in this world
with a little shelter from up above
little lies at every turn
I wanna be the face you trust in this world
when you need a little shelter
stand under my love
stand under my love
Track Name: Walk on Water
father likes to be right
says he found the light
says he found the light

watching you dodge the blade
hiding in the shade
hiding in the shade

what if there were no borders
what if no one ever caught us

take a step out, love is an ocean
we can walk on water
take a step out, love is an ocean
we can walk on water
on water

I wanna throw the stones
'till they break our bones
'til they break our bones

we gotta burn
we gotta burn
we gotta burn down our thrones

what if there were no borders
what if no one ever caught us

take a step out, love is an ocean
we can walk on water
take a step out, love is an ocean
we can walk on water
on water

who can know other minds
from across the lines
from across the lines

take a step out, love is an ocean
we can walk on water
take a step out, love is an ocean
we can walk on water
Track Name: Woman
wash me in your love
crown me with your burdens
I walk in your shadow
I wait at your window
take me inside your heart
whisper on the winds the secret
the song of the sparrow
the point of the arrow
woman, woman

ancient mother of the skies
hiding behind my eyes
come out into the open before the world is broken
I am, I am,
the shape of your shadow
the blood on your arrow
woman, woman
