                       Band One : Visitation (Jon Penn McDonald - David Vorhaus) 11'45
                       --------   ----------

                             Young girl with roses in her eyes
                               Sits on a bed of white sheets
                            The lights are off the gloom begins
                                  To thicken as she waits

                She's waiting alone in the dark             waiting
               Where is the sun and flowered park     we're always waiting
                Why do they always meet in shadow


          Young girl with roses in her eyes     I'm as close as your breathing
         Waits for the phosphorescent mouth         but you can't hear me
          It's blue and comes upon her neck
             In whispers like dry grass

              She's waiting for her lover's voice      I tried to talk to you
               The sun is gone the music plays        but you wouldn't listen
             From the street corner and she cries


                             Young girl with roses in her eyes
                               Hugs close the dark and cries
                                The words she hears are weak
                              Her lover's not asleep he's dead

                            She feels his breathing by her side
                               He reaches across the border
                          Stretching his boneless hand towards her


                                                  death is silent painless
                                                 I didn't know what happened
                                            I was suddenly standing above my body
                                                     while you looked on
                                                 too much in shock for tears
                                                      I tried to speak
                                                        but couldn't
                                                   I tried to talk to you
                                                  but you wouldn't listen
                                                      and now we meet
                                               like guilty lovers in the dark
                                                 for such a hopeless moment
                                        and even as we meet I feel you slipping from me
                                                        and I go back
                                                       to my darkness


  The girl with roses in her eyes    my spirit lingers after you like a faint stream of clouds
 Speaks with her lover who is here               my mouth hovers about you forever
Like vines their voices intertwine
        It is all they have                           I see you waiting for me
                                             summoning up the power as the light dies
                  She struggles to hold him back        that light we loved
                 He clutches but the power is gone
                  And the pillow's turned to chalk


                                       I tried to speak but couldn't
                and now we meet like guilty lovers in the dark for such a hopeless moment
                            and even as we meet I feel you slipping from me
                                       and I go back to my darkness
