Where else they travel Cross space and time Eastward are bound they Steps must they climb Searching for the path are they Through star and fire Coming to the brink are they Coming to the time But we can walk Out of Time Species are icefields Frozen to touch Creatures are mysteries Further from thoughts Searching for the first are they No love no want Coming to the edge are they Coming to the front

Flying towards the sun in a cast iron lung With wings made of grass and gum, to the setting one We made it half way unscathed, but our strength was done And there fell the first, bowed down by the weight of love Pass through space With eyes open But he can't run, why can't he run? Dreams poison captain's sleep, he has drawn away The tub flies unguided now 'cross the lonely way We cling to small ends of life, sweet remembered days To each of us, but a scap, and the wind holds sway Coldest hours From star to sun But we can't run, why can't we run?

Standing high On highest walls The work is good Though good is lost But loss is not And no one is All others know That nothing lives And there in time Where time will tell The burning sun For tolling bell A tolling for A ringing call For whom it leaves The leaves do fall We the six by six When all is one And wondering The ring is worn The warmest love But love is rare The rarest salt Surrender what The lover’s want At last the flight On flying winds The rendered sails Are sailing still And there the walls Still standing high All others know That nothing dies

We’re forging energy in jets of storm The surface reaving from the turbines form The fire bursting in unnumbered swarms When all we did was lie to Evelyn We spin the engine like a white-hot sun We’re burning fuel by the megaton The other vessels coming on All we can do is cry for Evelyn There stars shine out like eyes All round is wonder The farthest limits close within our reach But hope extinguished as the shell is breached A tear discorded by a prowling leech (And) all because we lied to Evelyn We set a final course to bring us home Our hands contracting on the frozen chrome Until we see the shimmer of her throne And we return at last to Evelyn

If you can’t love How you gonna live? Love stands next to the fire Will you put your hand in? Turn the skin, release the blood

03:53
Never with your eyes down Never will you come down, to our ground You’ll never be the storm cloud Never will you turn round from the sound

04:09
The final four The scenes of war and wonder The holy ghost Shall count the cost of thunder The hearts in flight That leaves the sight of all of us Those holy souls Shall count the tolls and leave us And the ones they have left Call for love from the blessed And that will never happen now for anyone We’ll all be saved If we can say we’re under The spells of man That lend their hands to plunder

Flew outside of earth’s walls I was not wanted anymore Bourne on rays of cosmic force Till I was drawn to a strange door There sweet music called me inside Was handed a pill to loosen my guise Saw another forgotten dream arise And I joined her to dance in the frozen light There in the night Once my new false malady declines I look deep into her glowing eyes Her hands a swirling blur by my side Her feet beating the rhythm deeper with each stride All those lost gods around me looking on Was I found at last? or am I wrong? Within those depths I can witness creations song Where at last I know I can belong

about

Saint Jude Melbourne, Australia

Nameless cosmic forces have led our hands and throats to articulate a new lifeform, a hitherto unknown being, an empyrean music, for whom our souls have been set to labour over, its earthly avatar guitar, drum and synthesizer, the clarion call of voices raised together. And together we can reach a higher form of existence. That is not Saint Jude’s goal, it is its inevitability. ... more
