Track Name: Each Life's Legacy
Time inflicts its own wounds
It's healing properties are wasted in the age of youth
Our deeds and memories are fortified as Seasons pass
And mark out histories that never change
And what remains is each life's legacy

The white blank page of innocence is scripted from the start
As each leaves its signature
As each life makes its mark
And every single victory as well as our mistakes
Can never change and what remains is each life's legacy

Within the glorious moment the seeds of reverie
Are captured in a movement perfected by degrees
With every soul's existence the strength of emapthy
Will never change and what remains is each life's legacy
Track Name: Land of the Long White Cloud
Flags in the harbour like vertigo reach into the distance of letting go
The Sun's shining like a bonfire in the sky
Voice of the ocean in the throat of a shell
Spectators in the frontline sell
The possibilities of everything that money can buy
Land of the Long White Cloud
Your time is up
The Sun beats down
Land of the Long White Cloud
You filled your cup just to pour it out

A loud rhythm of silence greets
The chorus of approval from these dead end streets
The Sun's shining like a furnace in the sky
Histories for sale at the highest price
Auctions of ambitions offer up the birthrights
Of generations yet to claim them
Land of the Long White Cloud
Your time is up
The Sun beats down
Land of the Long White Cloud
You filled your cup just to pour it out

God defend us
Track Name: The Deeds of Mercy
The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest;
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes:
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown;
His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
But mercy is above this sceptred sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself;
And earthly power doth then show likest God's
When mercy seasons justice. Therefore, Jew,
Though justice be thy plea, consider this,
That, in the course of justice, none of us
Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy;
And that same prayer doth teach us all to render
The deeds of mercy.
