Track Name: Cymrijan Dream
Be my Cymrian Dream,
My Erin maid tonight,
And stand by Cliffs of Mourne,
Crying out my name,
You make the darkness bright

Across the Erin Sea,
My love hides her delights,
Between the satin sheets,
A softness sweet and white,
Is there, then gone from my sight.

Though we walk through Dragon Lands,
The sea still stands in our way.
Though we walk through Dragon Lands,
Waves are barring our way.
Though we walk through Dragon Lands,
Your man can't look on your face.
You're too far away
You're too far away

The scent of sweet perfume,
Inflames my fevered mind.
I pace a lonely shore,
Where distant lands denied,
Awakes a passion in side.

Though we walk through Dragon Lands,
The sea still stands in our way.
Though we walk through Dragon Lands,
Waves are barring our way.
Though we walk through Dragon Lands,
Your man can't look on your face.
You're too far away
You're too far away

You're too far away
You're too far away

(Gaelic)

“Be my Cymrian Dream”,
My Erin maid replies!
I'll dive into the deep,
The water's cold as ice,
To reach my lover to night!

And while we walk through Dragon Lands,
The sea won't stand in our way.
And while we walk through Dragon Lands,
Waves are will part in our wake.
While we walk through Dragon Lands,
There's nothing can make us afraid
My sweet Erin Maid
I'm on my way

My sweet Erin Maid
I'm on my way
My sweet Erin Maid
I'm on my way
Track Name: Dreaming of Sun's Dawning
When Darkness falls around you,
I will keep you safe.
I will raise my sword for Sun's Dawning
and chase the night away.
And though darkness hides the nightmares,
I will not be afraid
when the dreaming of Sun's Dawning
leads the way.

And if all the world's against you,
Then I won't make a sound,
But to raise my voice for sun's dawning,
And lay them to the ground.
And if every friend's a friend in need,
Then every friend is saved.
When the dreaming of Sun's Dawning,
leads the way...

Rise... Pick yourself of the ground.
Raise your sword to the sky
And turn your face to the sun.
And if you do then you'll...
Stand... The dawn will make you strong
And light will guide your way
And hope will fill in your heart
And never fail as we...

Light... The Way... To... The Dawn.
Won't you Light... The Way... To... The Dawn.

Oh, What monstrous forms afflict you,
In the silences you keep.
Oh what madness fills your mind's eye,
and touches grief so deep.
And though faith is full of fallacies,
in this you can believe.
that the dreaming of Sun's Dawning,
Never leaves....

Rise... Pick yourself of the ground.
Raise your sword to the sky
And turn your face to the sun.
And if you do then you'll...
Stand... The dawn will make you strong
And light will guide your way
And hope will fill in your heart
And never fail as we...

Light... The Way... To... The Dawn.
Won't you Light... The Way... To... The Dawn.

Rise... Pick yourself of the ground.
Raise your sword to the sky
And turn your face to the sun.
And if you do then you'll...
Stand... The dawn will make you strong
And light will guide your way
And hope will fill in your heart
And never fail as we...

Light... The Way... To... The Dawn.
Won't you Light... The Way... To... The Dawn.

Light... The Way... To... The Dawn.
Won't you Light... The Way... To... The Dawn.
Track Name: Silent Whisper
(lilting)

In leafy mottle oak shade,
And down into the glen,
When poppy bloom has opened
Will I see you again?

(lilting)

For maybe half a moment,
Within the forest deep,
Appears a summer maiden,
Who sings the world to sleep.

(lilting)

Lay me down with your silent whisper.
Lay me down with your sound.
Lay me down with your silent whisper.
Lay me down with your sound.

(lilting)

The lady of the season,
No mortal ever could,
Confine her to a reason,
Or bind the Everwood.

(lilting)

O, Dance into the winter.
Forget the world of men,
And lead me ever deeper,
To not be seen again

(lilting)

Lay me down with your silent whisper.
Lay me down with your sound.
Lay me down with your silent whisper.
Lay me down with your sound.

(lilting)
Track Name: Dark Streets of Dagger
Sister won't you save me!
Save me from this hunger!
I took my stand,
To be the last good man,
In the dark streets of Dagger.

Since the day I was born,
I've had to endure,
These dark streets of Dagger.

Every scum of the earth,
Has found their worth,
In a town where nobody matters.

But at the bottom of a glass,
I saw it at last.
My people need a crusader!

And so I hatched my plan,
to be the last good man,
In the dark streets of Dagger.
In the dark streets of Dagger.

She was a lady of Coin.
She had grace. She had poise.
She had a body that you could just die fer.

And I admit I was impressed,
By her long white dress,
But in this town, that's asking for danger!

She said, "I'm all alone,
I'm a long ways from home,
Won't somebody be my saviour?

"I need the guiding hand,
of the last good man,
In the dark streets of dagger"
In the dark streets of Dagger.

"Dear Lady," says I,
"I know I'm the guy,
Who can keep you safe like no other"

And we spoke for a while,
Then she beamed me a smile,
And in a flash, I knew that I loved her!

We went out in the night,
And I held her tight,
And in that moment she got what she came fer.

For the last thing I sensed,
Was her breath on my neck,
In the dark streets of Dagger
In the dark streets of Dagger

In the dark...
In the dark streets of Dagger
In the dark streets of Dagger

Sister won't you save me!
Save me from this hunger!
I took my stand,
To be the last good man,
In the dark streets of Dagger.
Track Name: Gnomes of Locapo
The day that you receive your black hat,
Is the day that you become a spratling of great note,
Apprenticed to the greatest of
The Gnomes of Locapo!

And when you put on your white gloves,
When all the festivals of clans are in full flow.
Achieve the commendation of
The Gnomes of Locapo!

You know, that you can be a great gnome,
And be a true inventor,
Excel at what you’ve learnt!

And after, become a full craft master,
An artisan exemplar,
Until your gloves are burnt!

The Gnomes of Loca...
The Gnomes of Locapo!

Now wear, the colours of your great clan,
And be a marvellous example to all gnomes!
A simple aspiration for,
A Gnome of Locapo!

Although, you may take a new clan.
Through marriage, adoption or bereavement, change your clothes,
Expect no condemnation from,
The Gnomes of Locapo!

You could, in anger take the oathsblood!
Our enemies will answer,
The enmity they’ve earnt!

And after, might marry to the Chippewa,
And be our noble leader,
Until your gloves are burnt!

The Gnomes of Loca...
The Gnomes of Locapo!

But wait! If you should meet a stranger,
With a purse! He opens it so much it is on show!
Why that’s an invitation to,
A Gnome of Locapo!

And when, he sees you with it later,
And yells of villainy at large, I say to thee no!
Give moral affirmation to,
This Gnome of Locapo!

For we are more clever and more braver!
Our culture is our raiment,
That no one can subvert!

A family, that gathers in the malki,
Forever ‘til we’re ancient,
And all our gloves are burnt!

The Gnomes of Loca...
The Gnomes of Locapo!
Track Name: A Unicorn's Got a Horn on His Head
A Unicorn’s got a horn on his head
and to ride us is fantastic
A Unicorn’s got a horn on his head
and the feeling’s everlasting

As all the maidens can attest
There’s nothing matches our prowess
A Unicorns got a Horn on his head
and to ride us is fantastic.

(lilting)

Now as you're all aware,
There are nine other mythical creatures that I can think of.
Let's see how they compare.

Tarantulas spin their webs and hide,
While a Unicorn offers a mighty ride.

The Gryphons

A Gryphon’s a mystical creature I’m told
But a horn is better than feathers to hold

The Wolves

The wolves may growl and they may snarl
but they’ve only got it doggy style

The Vipers

The Vipers are cold blooded types
but a Unicorn’ll keep you warm at night

The Harts

The Harts are too long making tea,
to know what use a horn can be!

The Bears

Bears are hairy and hibernate,
But you wouldn’t want to take one as your mate!

The Lions

Lions go out roaming with their pride,
But a Unicorn's horn is better inside.

The Dragons

Dragons are scary and they breathe fire,
But a Unicorn's horn will get you higher!

The Jackals

The Jackals they scavenge and get there last,
But sloppy seconds is lacking class.

A Unicorn’s got a horn on his head
and to ride us is fantastic
A Unicorn’s got a horn on his head
and the feeling’s everlasting

As all the maidens can attest
There’s nothing matches our prowess
A Unicorns got a Horn on his head
and to ride us is fantastic.
