Track Name: Sleep Silent Child - 2018
1. Sleep Silent Child
words: Terry Scott Taylor
music: T.S. Taylor, Greg Flesch, Tim Chandler
©1986 Broken Songs (ASCAP)
Sleep, silent child, steal away (You sigh)
In starry fields you wander there
Another bright heart in God's embrace
The dazzling breathing dream
The silent searching flight
Gave you the strength, at last
To live in light, I kiss your lips goodnight
Sleep, silent child, peace, be still (Be still)
Your ears have heard the Holy word
Beyond the dark world's fiery end
The time has come to leave
These distant rims of time
Forgotten days and nights
Of clocks and chimes, I kiss your soul divine
Sleep, silent child
"Sleep silent child
Depart to the Sovereign of your heart
Draw back blue curtains of sky and fly, fly!"
Sleep, silent child, steal away (You sigh)
In starry fields you wander there
Another bright heart in God's embrace
The dazzling breathing dream
The silent searching flight
Gave you the strength, at last
To live in light, I kiss your lips goodnight
Sleep, silent child
guitars and vocals: T.S. Taylor
Track Name: Angels Tuck You In - 2018
2. Angels Tuck You In
words and music: Terry Scott Taylor
©1983 Shape of Air Music, BMI
You hold an image, it provides a common thread
No sense of menace, no feeling of dread
You never worry your pretty little head, and
Angels tuck you in tonight
Angels tuck you in tonight
Angels tuck you in and greet you in the morning light
This cartoon world you've created, it's like Disneyland
Get out your golden ticket
The one they give you when you're born again
A guardian personage is watching over you
Nothing uncomfortable can ever get through
There is no suffering for the chosen few, and...
Angels tuck you in tonight
Angels tuck you in tonight
Angels tuck you in and greet you in the morning light
You've been a wide-eyed innocent
Come to the garden, come to the hill
Come to the tree, come to the kill
Won't break your bones, but it can break your will
You're too afraid of hurting
Been playing cover-up
Expose yourself to dying
And in this real world, it is your calling
You hold an image, it provides a common thread
No sense of menace, no feeling of dread
You never worry your pretty little head, and
Angels tuck you in tonight
Angels tuck you in tonight
Angels tuck you in and
greet you in the morning light
Track Name: The Glorious Dregs - 2018
Resplendent riff-raff
On our last legs
Fuel for the fire
Dust for the graves
Earth and sky
You and I
The glorious dregs
Aluminum foil
A crown for our heads
Faithless and loyal
To love we allege
Diamonds and lees
You and me
The glorious dregs
Worthless and worthy
Like profane prophets we speak
Of vengeance and mercy
Of an eye for an eye
And turning the other cheek
Selfless and selfish
Alive and dead
Brothers and bigots
Blessings and plagues
Forgiven and cursed
The last, the first
The glorious dregs
Earth and sky
You and I
The glorious dregs
Earth and sky
You and I
The glorious dregs
Track Name: Moses In The Desert - 2018
I was like Moses in the desert
From my friends I had to flee
Like Moses in the desert
Without a home or a country
Like Moses in the desert
The Word came down to me
Your friends are blinded by a golden calf
And you must tell them
You must go and help them all to see
I said "Who are you to send me?"
He said "I Am that I Am"
I said "Lord, what will I tell them?"
He said "I Am that I Am"
"But dear Lord, I just can't do it.
I am just a man"
He said "I will see you through it,
I Am that I Am."
I was like Moses in the desert
From my sin I had to run
Like Moses in the desert
Could not face what I'd become
Like Moses in the desert
I have a stuttering tongue
But my friends were blinded by another god
The Lord said "Tell them,
they will hear you, you're my chosen one"
(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Fingertips - 2018
Who's softly slipping
Down the stairs?
Is someone sitting
In that empty chair?
Who's moving the air
Brushing my hair
With their fingertips?
Chorus:
Someone's coming
(ready or not)
I hear them breathing
(in the mystery spot)
Rattling locks
And winding the clocks
Leaving fingerprints
Someone's whispering
In my ears
All my hopes and
All my fears
Counting the years
And catching my tears
On their fingertips
Chorus:
Something's different
About this place
Is something hiding
In that empty space?
Walking the halls
And pounding the walls
Leaving fingperprints
Someone's coming
Ready or not
I hear them breathing
In the mystery spot
Rattling locks
And winding the clocks
Leaving fingerprints
Who's that passing
Through that door?
Another sign I
Can't ignore
Across the floor
And touching me once more
With their fingertips
Chorus:
Yeah, something's different
About this place
There's something hiding
In that empty space
Walking the halls
And pounding the walls
Leaving fingperprints
Someone laughs and
Reaches down
Cracks the plates and
Spins the world around
On their fingertips
Track Name: Clean
I once killed a man,
My worst enemy
I hung him from
A Sweetgum tree
His rose-red sweat
Washed over me
I fell asleep and dreamed….

I had been made clean
I fell into
A muddy river
Its heart was cold,
Its taste was bitter
It felt like death
In the dead of winter,
Drowning all that’s unredeemed
How can I be clean?
High on my ladder
In Babylon
I tried to speak, but
The words were wrong
Then I tasted fire, (His rose-red sweat….)
And sang an Easter song (…..washed over me)
Can you tell me Death,
Where is your sting?
You have made me clean
You have made me clean
You have made me clean
You have made me clean….
