about

"Volume 2 : If the Dark Has Breached the Gap" was the second half of a double album. Recorded at the same time as "Volume 1", it was meant to follow that album, but was never released due to obligations to other projects at the time. This version has been edited down to the most complete version of what it was intended to be.

There is no official artwork for Volume 2.
Feel free to be creative and make your own.

Volume 2 was intended to be released in the year following the release of Volume 1. As a result, the date of 01.01.09 has been estimated to approximated that timeline.

Track Name: Not For Cryin'
Well the eyes are not for cryin
If the heart can be untrue
It betrays the beating body
And it leaves me standing blue

And it’s a hard thing to fall
And a long ride enthralled
Is it really too much for you to call?
Im tired, so tired of sleeping alone

Ba ba ba ba ba

Well I fear im on the edge
And I don’t know what to do
See I only wanted one girl
But I fell in love with two

And it’s a hard thing to fall
And a long ride enthralled
Is it really too much for you to call?
Im tired, so tired of sleeping alone

Ba ba ba ba ba

And now im so blue
Id do anything to get back home to you
And I know that it seems wrong
But if you give me a chance
To make it up to you

Ba ba ba ba ba
Track Name: Sweetheart Girl
I love you my sweetheart girl
Sweetest darling in the world
I miss you here I miss you near
I miss your kiss and I miss your fears
I miss your smile I miss your touch
I miss your love and I miss you much
I love you my sweetheart girl

And I cursed that the sky would allow this
As I laughed at the wind as it swirled

I love you my sweetheart girl
Sweetest darling in the world
I miss you here I miss you near
I miss your kiss and I miss your fears
I miss your smile I miss your touch
I miss your love and I miss you much

But I can taste upon the vine
The fruit has spoiled a fancy fine
Upon a truth I once had heard
I left my love to wipe the taste away

And the waves came crashing through our homestead
As the wind, it broke apart the stone

I love you my sweetheart girl
Sweetest darling in the world
I miss you hear I miss you near
I miss your kiss and I miss your fears
I miss your smile I miss your touch
I miss your love and I miss you much
I love you my sweetheart girl
Track Name: A Plea To Bring You Home
Now I say to you my darling one Im just a child
That lives inside the things I hoped id find
But yesterdays a word Id throw away in hopes of meeting
The life I try to lead inside my mind

Ooh sun child, Im begging you that if you choose to go
Give me back the heart I used to know

When I was a boy so long ago before the aching
Of things that serve to pull a body down
I dreamed of being free and finding love inside the darkness
The love you tried so hard to throw around

Ooh sun child, Im begging you that if you choose to go
Give me back the heart I used to know

Now Im growing old inside my skin but im still standing
Upon the walls ive built to hide my eyes
But every word you breathe in fits of anger only serve you
To rattle all the ones that made you kind

Ooh sun child, Im begging you that if you choose to go
Give me back the heart I used to know
Track Name: For and Of A Child Unborn
Oh my sweet angeline, tell me where have you been?
Mouth of bloody silver, words awash with sin
Tell me how youre living
And will you marry him?

You were my friend when I needed you most
How can I be one to you?
Can I take on the fear that has swallowed your ghost?
Can I split your tongue back in two?

Oh my sweet angeline, tell me how can you stand
On wooden legs to bowed too mend with earthly tools of twine?
Tell me how you’re breathing
And are your lungs still clean?

You were my friend when I needed you most
How can I be one to you?
Can I take on the fear that has swallowed your ghost?
Can I split your tongue back in two?

Oh my sweet angeline, tell me how have you been?
Mouth of bloody silver, words awash with sin
Track Name: Lonely Without You
Baby I’ve been blue,
Most every night over you.
But, I’m not so sure why I should give a damn.

You had my heart,
And my piece of mind.
Baby I thought somehow we could last.

Now what am I supposed to do?
What am I to say to you?
Cos im lonely, lonely, lonely without you.

I know I’m on my own,
To deal with this aching alone.
Maybe Ill find me a nice little hole in the ground.

But I see you everywhere,
In everyone I meet.
But, I know not matter how hard I try that they ain’t you.

Now what am I supposed to do?
What am I to say to you?
Cos im lonely, lonely, lonely without you.

I think that ill go home,
Leaving this pain all alone.
Leave this cold world to figure it all out when Im gone.

And I’m never, never, never gonna leave you.
No, I’m never never never gonna leave you baby.
No, I’m never never never gonna leave you. Oh no!

No, I’m never gonna leave
No, I’m never gonna leave
No, I’m never gonna leave
No, I’m never gonna leave you alone.
Track Name: Lady
As I walked along, on the railroad line
You said that you’re feeling, you’re feeling fine
But it’s been such a long time lady

I gave you my hand, and I said with a smile
That I’d been out walkin’ for many a mile
But I know it’s time to take a rest

Well I could hold you in my arms
If forever was a day
Oh I could keep you safe from harm pretty darling
As long as you don’t walk away

The love that you give me is making me whole
You gave me shelter from out of the cold
And I won’t forget the kindness that you’ve shown

Well I could hold you in my arms
If forever was a day
Oh I could keep you safe from harm pretty darling
As long as you don’t walk away

Oh I can hear it on a windy day
How all of my sorrow used to take me away
What a waste of the time that I once knew

Well I could hold you in my arms
If forever was a day
Oh I could keep you safe from harm pretty darling
As long as you don’t walk away
Track Name: Mama Rag
Mama you’ve done me wrong
I knew it all along
And I pray for God’s forgiveness every day
I wish you would quit your lowdown ways

Darlin’ it’s been so long
Since I felt your loving arms
How could I have been such a foolish man.
So I’m drinking to my sins once again

But I won’t cry and I won’t moan
You know it ain’t the first time I’ve been left all alone
I don’t need your foolin. Bye bye.
I found another who’d take the time to try

Mama I think I’m sick
I need a doctor come here quick
I’m seeing two of all the things I’ve learned to hate
So hurry to my bedside and don’t be late

But I won’t cry and I won’t moan
You know it ain’t the first time I’ve been left all alone
I don’t need your foolin’. Bye bye.
I found another who’d take the time to try

Mama you’ve done me wrong
I knew it all along
But I pray for God’s forgiveness every day
And I wish you would quit your lowdown ways

But I won’t cry and I won’t moan
You know it ain’t the first time I’ve been left all alone
I don’t need your foolin. Bye bye.
I found another who’d take the time to try
Track Name: Angeline
I left my home when I was thirteen
And I never looked back again.
Oh oh, pretty Angeline.

Hungry and cold when I knocked on your door
For a place to rest and to warm my bones.
Oh oh, pretty Angeline.

How long how long since I’ve seen your face?
Since I was a younger man.
So good it would be to see you once again.

You told me your story and opened your door.
How could I have asked for more?
Oh oh, pretty Angeline.

A darling of moonlite and a queen of lace
Gracefully holding back all your tears.
Oh oh, pretty Angeline.

How long how long since I’ve seen your face?
Since I was a younger man.
So good it would be to see you once again.

I still can recall when the leaves start to fall
The innocence of all we once were.
Oh oh, pretty Angeline .

How long how long since I’ve seen your face?
Since I was a younger man.
So good it would be to see you once again.
Track Name: The Strangest Thing
Well I stepped out to the streets of glory
In my hometown where she’s laid to rest
The wind was howling the streets were empty
Except for me

Ten years gone by since I was a young kid
I aint been back here no reason to be
But I stand here and beg forgiveness
From my sweet lord

I hope I see her when I get to the gates of golden solitude
Solitude

Last night I dreamt in a place so lonesome
I was thirteen in the house I lived in
When the angels took her from me
Far too soon

In a doe-eyed dream I found the one who
Gave life too me she gave her own
Wish her blessing I said goodbye
And she was gone

I hope I see her when I get to the gates of golden solitude
Solitude

I awoke then in an empty cabin
Where my thoughts had been before me
But the strangest thing that happened
Was a smile

I hope I see her when I get to the gates of golden solitude
Solitude
Track Name: Oh Lover
Oh lover wont you take me down
To somewhere I want to be
Cos ive been so lost and lonely
Licking at my wounds with shattered teeth

Oh lover wont you take my hand
Cos I really want to understand
The way that lives are lost and found again
Among the words that lovers breathe

Mmm mmm mmm

Oh lover wont you ease my mind
From all the things I gotta do
The words that rattle to my bones
To strike me blind and never speak again

Mmm mmm mmm

Oh lover wont you sing a song
The one that helps me fall asleep
Dreams have been my own salvation
To keep me from the world beneath my feet

Mmm mmm mmm
Track Name: Waterside #2
I’ll choke the night and I’ll hold the rain
A few more hours till you come back to me
Secured in paths of the burned and blackened bone
I’ve kept my vices in a tomb of stone

The streets decay neath the winter’s frozen plain
My plight is yours alone to hold
Was I the one who cast a broken stone
I’ll walk with you as the north wind folds

---------

and if the dark has breached the gap
I’ll meet you by the waterside

--------

In my silence I will burn the curtains guard
Its been draped upon my tunneled sight
I’ll wear my scars in the songs that I sing
To guide you back on home to me

--------

and if the dark has breached the gap
I’ll meet you by the waterside

--------

If my arms should fail to keep me afloat
I will dive down and grip the earth
I will dig a hole through the molten sands of time
To find my way back home to you

--------

and if the dark has breached the gap
I’ll meet you by the waterside
If the dark has breached the gap
I’ll meet you by the waterside
Track Name: With the Morning Sun
Well you can do what you want and you can say what you say
See I don’t really care that much about you anyway
You’re just losing your pride when mama im on the line
You think its clever to tell me that you’ve been feeling fine
“I feel fine, im alright, im ok”
I guess theres nothing left for me to say
But ill say it.

Don’t waste my time on this line
Don’t waste my time on this line
Ill be traveling on with the morning sun

Im better off by myself, you care too much for your health
And you’re too dumb to know that I take only what I need
And know that need is not want Are you the chase or the hunt
Now go back to your room and figure out where you belong
You’ll be fine, you’re alright, you’re ok
You never cared about me all that much in the end I guess anyway
But you will

Don’t waste my time on this line
Don’t waste my time on this line
Ill be traveling on with the morning sun

Well you can do what you want and you can say what you say
See I don’t really care that much about you anyway
You’re just losing your pride when mama I’m on the line
You think its clever to tell me that you’ve been feeling fine
“I feel fine, I’m alright, I’m ok”
I guess theres nothing left for me to say
But ill say it.
Track Name: The Gallows Of Valor
You do not belong here, no you were not born to die
But I am not your soldier, no I did not come here to fight
Ive seen the men that you’ve left in your wake
And the faces you’ve turned into stone
As the gallows of valor remind you that your still alone

You have all the angels and I have my cigarettes
For nights I spending in my mourning of shallow and sad regret
Someday you’ll find when your wreck takes its toll
And the ones you have turned turn away
You’ll see it was me who was there all along on the way

Oh but you would cast me out to the straights of this life
Remorse is a word I learned from our sins
And I cant keep up this racing pulse anyhow
So I guess that I will be headed back out with the sun

Now I see by the dawning that this is my time to go
My feet seem firmly planted among ones that have gone there before
So please kiss the children if I don’t return
From the paths of our anguish and lies
Tell them that I will be there all along anyway
Track Name: Blue
Blue is the rain that falls upon my head
Blue is the bird that sleeps upon my bed
Blue was her blood the day the dead did make
But blue is a feeling that I cant shake

White was the dress she wore to lay me down
White was the sign that took me from that town
White was her hair when the sun shined strong and broke
And white is the light from which I cant hide

Black was the night that took me from my home
Black is the sound I hear when Im alone
Black is the soil on which my legs do roam
And Black was the ink that pierced me to my bones.
Track Name: To the End
Someday you’ll find, when you’re left alone and you’re left behind
And fears left your side, that you cannot run and you cannot hide
And I will be there, my ghost on your face
Too cold to stay, for long in one place
With a death so deserving and a rose in my teeth

Ive given my all, every ounce that I am to be lost in the fall
And ill rise from my skin, with a kiss to the end and a way to begin
But you’d take it all, and you’d walk away
You’re selfish white teeth, and a debt left to pay
But I don’t believe, in who you must be

And you hold your disgrace, too close to see so you can save face
Your face in the sun, shining like jewels from the things that you’ve done
Know I loved you then, with all that I had
You threw it away, like an old fashioned fad
But I cannot wait, with the sun on the rise

I wish I could be, something less honest and living in peace
But truth is my skin, its all that I have and all that I see
Ive got songs to sing, like the gifts that they bring
To a baby in waiting, in a manger of wings
But all that you are, is all you’ll allow

And you’ve been a fool, your words have been "binded" to all of your rules
You’re bleeding heart hope, built from pages of your magazines
And I don’t know how, you know how to breathe
With lungs that deceive you, still heavy from drink
How can I believe, the things that you’ve told

But maybe its me, my blood starts to boil when I am set free
With all of your charm, I dreamed of a love to keep us from harm
It’s a world full of pain, they’d wash down the drains
No cure to the problems, that rattle our brains
Im amazed at the way we keep up the pace

Someday you’ll see, its all that you’ve been and all that you’ll be
A lonely lost girl, too scared to move or live in this world
And then you will know, just how ive become
So tired in youth, and then it is done
I hope that you’re love will meet with your truth
