Cover Art: Peggy Stenmark


She looks out through the eyes that made the ocean
Stillness in motion through the darkness
As the lightning parts the curtain

Stands alone as she dances in the shadows
Watching the madness hidden there
And still I see behind the curtain

CHORUS: In stillness waiting
I stand creating
In the silence
As I stand beyond the curtain

Sky is burning
The light returning to
The smile in her eyes
And once again
I see behind the curtain

She looks up and the emptiness surrounds her
Though I have found her still I cannot
Reach her through the curtain

Drawing breath through the chains that try to bind her
Someday I'll find her and I'll hold her
When we pass beyond the curtain


Calling me
Calling me to go
Calling me to
To leave this place

Run away
Run away from here
Never see never care
What lies behind the curtain
