the promise
these tears on a gaping voice 
whose stretching arms match the hunger of mine 
these lips will they never join 
but always draw me closer and further entwined 

with a promise dealer understand all 
freedoms fade away 
to a point of view where many different
pathways meet 
and we're standing on this precipice with 
nothing much to gain 
but the deep blue screams of falling dreams 
with our next move 

heaven hide your eyes 
heaven's eyes will never dry 

the shades of a thousand steel 
come flashing by my face in the fury of war 
in desolation and abandoned fields 
the hungry make their stand when they'll stand for 
no more 

hear the passion in their voices 
see the heaven in their eyes 
their hopes and schemes are waiting dreams of 
less than paradise 
and sometimes we make promises we never mean to keep 
for blackmail is the only deal a promise dealer sees 

heaven hide your eyes 
heaven's eyes will never dry
