Alabaster (Gentry/Siregar) As the cold winds blow The Children laugh, a time forgotten Pathway through the clouds Daylight falls, visions fade Does He wipe away the tears a-fallin'? Can He take away the pain within us? Someday the skies will clear but I don't know when Searching through the night With dimming stars in place of Heaven We look to find our place Saddened eyes, ashen skies Throughout the ages Visions pass by Shadows in the light, whispers in the night Stars will align We're drawing nearer Listen inside Every little step, every little voice Echoes in time Waves against the shore We build our world in alabaster Resistance from the rains Worn away, what remains? Can He hear our voices calling? Sometimes I think we're all alone The love we held is gone, in hiding Can you hear the angels cry? Now we're left to wonder, why?

Jester Dance (Gentry/Siregar) Never a time to be myself When I'm alone I try to forget it all Never a time I can relate to anyone, no one Look inside my eyes, my face is painted on Never a day to leave this shell, no Never a breath I can call my own I am screaming, no one can hear me Before you now I perform I dance, I sing, this faceless offering I smile, you laugh, this time's not meant to last I cry, you sleep, with dreams of happiness Who wears the mask? Never a word that I have spoken reflect the soul within, the words escape me I hear the sound of the Jesters drum, I stand before you now with my head bowed down, oh see the clown See him dance, hear him sing, it's a faceless offering I cry while you sleep, so close your eyes You pull, I jump, a puppet on a string You twist, I fall, the final curtain call But they're more moves left to be played but your memories fade away They fade away Jester dance all night long Jester dance all night long There's somewhere else that I need to be It's following the sunset Never a time to be forgotten But who's the lonely one? Look inside my eyes, your reflection dies

about

Alabaster relates our lifetimes of building who we are and standing against the elements of time. Eventually that beauty fades away and those left behind admire who we were. Living with faith is difficult as meaning is unseen, but hopefully what is seen, what we were is as beautiful as Alabaster.
