Land Of The Hummingbird (Owens/Sullivan) On the grounds we cherish From the dead of night Is a heart that's heavy With another's light Upon her wings Where man does sing In the land of the hummingbird 3x She was a raven Now just withered flowers The bloom is gone My soul is aching For her song Upon her wings Rests everything In the land of the hummingbird 3x She was a raven

Dolina 03:26
Dolina (Owens) In the circus of dark souls And the palace of lust To nowhere, to ruin The stations of the cross Bathed in the fountain of sand and blood In the circus of dark souls And the palace of lust Chorus Dolina 3x Bathed in the fountain of sand and blood Remember the night we looked for snakes and watched the desert burn Waited for all hell to escape and the violence to return Sacrificed it all with flowers of regret Remember the night we looked for snakes and watched the desert burn Chorus Dolina 3x Sacrificed it all with flowers of regret Bathed in the fountain of sand and blood

Ashes & Dust 03:33
Ashes And Dust (Owens) Dark angels try to persuade me In me the desert is vast Those who loved and betrayed me The blessed and the cursed Ashes and dust Sacrifice all my treasures Death resumes its march All my sins all my pleasures The best and the worst Are ashes and dust Out of the fire into the dark Go the souls of the lost See the souls fly from the fire to the sky We all carry our cross See the souls fly, sparks into the night The blessed and the cursed Ashes and dust In me the darkness is endless Destroy all the ghosts We all come to an end in the furnace The best and the worst Ashes and dust The blessed and the cursed Ashes and dust
