1. Adagio For Strings - Samuel Barber (Main Theme)
~~~
Sorowful Overture
~~~

2. Under Stars II – Brian Eno (Drifting through the Spirit World)
~~~
Mysterious Ambient Texture and refrain for the mystery of the Spirit World
~~~

3. In A Lifetime – Clannad (The Residual Haunting)
~~~
Hard to tell
Or recognize a sign
To see me through
A warning sign
First the thunder
Satisfied, if the past it will not lie
Then the storm
Torn asunder
The future you and I get blown away
In the storm

In a lifetime

And as the rain it falls
Begin again, as the storm breaks through
Heavy in my heart
Believe the light in you
So the light shines in you
Without color, faded and worn
Torn asunder in the storm
Unless the sound has faded from your soul
Unless it disappears
First the thunder
Selfish storm
Then the storm
Hold on the inside
Torn asunder
One life
In the storm

In a lifetime
In a lifetime
~~~

4. Childhood – Michael Jackson (Christopher’s Lament)
~~~
Have you seen my Childhood?

I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me
People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things
It's been my fate to compensate,
For the Childhood
I've never known

Have you seen my Childhood?

I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne
Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,

Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I'm strange that way
'Cause I love such elementary things,
It's been my fate to compensate,
For the Childhood I've never known

Have you seen my Childhood?

I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
The dreams I would dare, watch me fly
Before you judge me, try hard to love me
The painful youth I've had

Have you seen my Childhood?
~~~

5. The Secret Place – Brian Eno (Horror in the Haunted Alley)
~~~
Dark and chilling Ambient Texture
~~~

6. The Bridge of Tears – Clannad (Christopher Meets Simon)
~~~
Lyrics
The mist has cleared from Muckish Hill
Our parting coming nearer
The last embrace, the final touch
With nothing more to say
Nothing more to say

As silence fell around the bridge
Not a single word was spoken
A bitter breeze, a lonely stream
Echoed through the Glen
Echoed through the Glen

Droichead na ndeor
Agus droichead na gcaointe
Droichead na gcaointe
Agus droichead na ndeor

Memories fade with passing age
In forlorn hope we wait for
Distant hills still haunt us now
Until the end of time
Until the end of time

Droichead na ndeor
Agus droichead na gcaointe
Droichead na gcaointe
Agus droichead na ndeor

Droichead na ndeor
Agus droichead na gcaointe
Droichead na gcaointe
Agus droichead na ndeor
~~~

7. Is There A Ghost? – Band of Horses (Father Malachi and the Little Boy Lost)
~~~
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep

When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?

I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep

When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?

My house

I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep

When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
My house

I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep

When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?

My house
~~~

8. Matta – Brian Eno (The Umbereth)
~~~
Frighteningly dark ambient texture
~~~

9. To Wish For Impossible Things – The Cure (Christopher’s Haunting Moan)
~~~
Remember how it used to be
When the sun would fill up the sky
Remember how we used to feel
Those days would never end
Those days would never end
Remember how it used to be
When the stars would fill the sky
Remember how we used to dream
Those nights would never end
Those nights would never end

It was the sweetness of your skin
It was the hope of all we might have been
That fills me with the hope to wish
Impossible things

But now the sun shines cold
And all the sky is grey
The stars are dimmed by clouds and tears
And all I wish
Is gone away
All I wish
Is gone away

All I wish
Is gone away
~~~

10. Wax and Wane – Cocteau Twins (The Book of the Damned)
~~~
Carrying prose
Broke my real friend
The devil bites dirty, we wax and we wane

The devil bites dirty, we wax and wane

Licking our wounds
The devil bites dirty
Reckoning we'll taste
We wax and we wane

The devil bite's dirty, we wax and wane

Caring is a bury gin shot
The devil bites dirty
Up to the wee wanes

Oh, we laugh in their faces

The devil bites dirty, we wax and wane
~~~

11. Signals – Brian Eno (Going to Church)
~~~
Ominous but slightly inspiring ambient texture
~~~

12. Plainsong – The Cure (Fear of Angels)
~~~
"i think it's dark and it looks like rain" you said
"and the wind is blowing like it's the end of the
world" you said "and it's so cold it's like the
cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for
a second.

"i think i'm old and i'm in pain" you said
"and it's all running out like it's the end of the
world" you said "and it's so cold it's like the
cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for
a second

sometimes you make me feel like i'm living at
the edge of the world like i'm living at the edge
of the world "it's just the way i smile" you said
~~~

13. Ghosts – Japan (Existential Crisis of a Ghost)
~~~
When the room is quiet
The daylight almost gone
It seems there's something I should know
Well I ought to leave but the rain it never stops
And I've no particular place to go

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before

Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind

Well I'm feeling nervous
Now I find myself alone
The simple life's no longer there
Once I was so sure
Now the doubt inside my mind
Comes and goes but leads nowhere

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before

Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind
~~~

14. Hawks Do Not Share – The Devils (The Bloodstain)
~~~
Dark eyes you've got new clothes
Please stay with me I love you
You are a dream believe me
We cut our hair
We go to bed
Sleep scented head

Now we know our promises were true & we know a burden has been shared

But Hawks don't share they gather in
Hawks don't share
Hawks don't share they gather in
Hawks don't share
Hawks don't share

No history to forget
Not fame & fortune to regret
We tried so hard to find the truth
Don't leave me here

Then I see your hands outstretched to me & I know the role I played was false

But Hawks don't share they gather in
Hawks don't share
Hawks don't share they gather in
Hawks don't share
Hawks don't share they gather in
Hawks don't share
Hawks don't share

Dark eyes you've got new clothes
Clothes Clothes
Clothes Clothes
Clothes Clothes
Clothes Clothes
~~~

15. The Twilight Garden – The Cure (Daydreams of Heaven)
~~~
I lift my lips from kissing you
To kiss the sky
Cloud soft and blue
And slow the sun melts down
Into your golden words for me

I lift my hands from touching you
To touch the wind that whispers through
This twilight garden
Turns into a world
Where dreams are real

No-one will ever take your place
I am lost in you
No-one will ever take your place
So in love with you

I lift my eyes from watching you
To watch the star rise shine onto
Your dreaming face and dreaming smile
You're dreaming worlds for me

I lift my lips from kissing you
And kiss the sky wide deepest blue
And slow the moon swims up
Into your golden words for me

No-one will ever take your place
I am lost in you
No-one will ever take your place
So in love with you
~~~

16. At Night – The Cure (Detective Cummings and The Night Of…)
~~~
Sunk deep in the night
I sink in the night
Standing alone underneath the sky
I feel the chill of ice
On my face
I watch the hours go by
The hours go by
You sleep
Sleep in a safe bed
Curled and protected
Protected from sight
Under a safe roof
Deep in your house
Unaware of the changes at night

At night
I hear the darkness breathe
I sense the quiet despair
Listen to the silence
At night
Someone has to be there
Someone has to be there

Someone must be there
~~~

17. 2 Late – The Cure (Simon’s Fateful Decision)
~~~

 

Desperate Instrumental


~~~

18. One Hundred Years – The Cure (Spirit War)
~~~
It doesn't matter if we all die
Ambition in the back of a black car
In a high building there is so much to do
Going home time
A story on the radio
Something small falls out of your mouth
And we laugh
A prayer for something better
A prayer
For something better

Please love me
Meet my mother
But the fear takes hold
Creeping up the stairs in the dark

Waiting for the death blow
Waiting for the death blow
Waiting for the death blow
Stroking your hair as the patriots are shot
Fighting for freedom on the television
Sharing the world with slaughtered pigs
Have we got everything?
She struggles to get away

The pain
And the creeping feeling
A little black haired girl
Waiting for Saturday
The death of her father pushing her
Pushing her white face into the mirror
Aching inside me
And turn me round
Just like the old days
Just like the old days
Just like the old days
Just like the old days

Caressing an old man
And painting a lifeless face
Just a piece of new meat in a clean room
The soldiers close in under a yellow moon
All shadows and deliverance
Under a black flag
A hundred years of blood
Crimson
The ribbon tightens round my throat
I open my mouth
And my head bursts open
A sound like a tiger thrashing in the water
Thrashing in the water
Over and over
We die one after the other
Over and over
We die one after the other
One after the other
One after the other
One after the other
One after the other

It feels like a hundred years
A hundred years
A hundred years
A hundred years
A hundred years
One hundred years
~~~

19. Tomorrow, Wendy – Concrete Blonde (Lies and then Someone You Love Dies)
~~~
Lyrics
It is complete, now
Two ends of time are neatly tied
A one-way street
She's walking to end of the line
And there she meets
The faces she keeps in her heart and mind

They say, "Goodbye"
Tomorrow, Wendy you're going to die
Tomorrow, Wendy you're going to die

Underneath the chilly gray November sky
We can make believe that Kennedy is still alive
And we're shooting for the moon
And smiling Jack is driving by

And they say, "Good try"
Tomorrow, Wendy you're going to die
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die

I told the priest
Don't count on any second coming
God got his ass kicked
The first time he came down here slumming
He had the balls to come
The gall to die and then forgive us
No, I don't wonder why
I wonder what he thought it would get us
Hey, hey, goodbye
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die

Hey, hey, good bye
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die

Only God says, "Jump"
So I set the time
'Cause if he ever saw her
It was through these eyes of mine
And if he ever suffered
It was me who did his crying

Hey, hey, goodbye
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die
(Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die)
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die
(Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die)
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die

Hey, hey, goodbye
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die

Hey, hey, goodbye
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die
Tomorrow, Wendy is going to die
~~~

20. Cold – The Cure (The Darkening of Christopher)
~~~
Scarred
Your back was turned
Curled like an embryo
Take another face
You will be kissed again
I was cold as I mouthed the words
And crawled across the mirror
I wait
Await the next breath
Your name
Like ice into my heart

A shallow grave
A monument to the ruined age
Ice in my eyes
And eyes like ice don't move
Screaming at the moon
Another past time
Your name
Like ice into my heart

Everything as cold as life
Can no one save you?
Everything
As cold as silence
And you never say a word

Your name
Like ice into my heart
Your name
Like ice into my heart
~~~

21. Under Stars II - Icebreaker (The Angel of Death)
~~~
Master Refrain for the mystery of the Spirit World

22. Prayer To A Guardian Angel – Hawes and the Voices 8 (Earning Your Wings)
~~~

Come in the night

Silent and still,

Angel of light

show the truth of love’s will.

 

Dark is my soul

And fearful my mind:

Help me the purest

and gentlest way find.

 

Come in the dawn

When all is lost,

Angel of comfort

Take hold of my hand.

 

Lift me, enfold me,

Help me to see

That all of your treasures

give power to break free.

 

Come in the noon

Of bright sunlit days;

Angel of joy

Give me right words to say.

 

Inspire my heart

with truth from above;

Renew my life in the healing

of perfect love.
~~~

23. A Chain of Flowers – The Cure (Father Malachi Grieves)
~~~
Please wake up
It's so dark and cold
Please wake up
I feel so alone

And I feel so scared
That you're going away
And I feel so scared

All I want is summer
Stories from before
Just like the time you tried to hide
Behind the churchyard wall
And fell asleep before I came
And found you in a chain of flowers

Sleeping like a marble boy
Sleeping in another world

I'll never tell you of all the different ways
Of all the different ways

You made me so afraid
You made me so afraid
Afraid...

Please wake up
It's so dark and cold
Please wake up
I feel so alone

And I feel so scared
That you're going away
And I feel so scared

I'll never tell you of all the different ways
Of all the different ways

You made me so afraid
~~~

24. My Tears Are Becoming A Sea – M38 (A Guardian’s Work)
~~~
I'm slowly drifting to you
The stars and the planets
Are calling me
A billion years away from you
I'm on my way
I'm On...
I'm On...
~~~

25. The Funeral Party – Jesu (Requiem for the Beloved)
~~~
Two pale figures
Ache in silence
Timeless
In the quiet ground
Side by side
In age and sadness

I watched
And acted wordlessly
As piece by piece
You performed your story
Moving through an unknown past

Dancing at the funeral party

Memories of children's dreams
Lie lifeless
Fading
Lifeless
Hand in hand with fear and shadows
Crying at the funeral party

I heard a song
And turned away
As piece by piece
You performed your story
Noiselessly across the floor
Dancing at the funeral party
~~~

26. The Ghost In You – Psychedelic Furs (Lovers in Spirit)
~~~
A man in my shoes runs a light
And all the papers lied tonight
But falling over you
Is the news of the day

Angels fall like rain
And love is all of Heaven away

Inside you the time moves
And he won't fade
The ghost in you
He don't fade
Inside you the time moves
And he won't fade

A race is on, I'm on your side
And hearing you my engines die
I'm in a mood for you
For running away

Stars come down in you
And love, you can't give it away

Inside you the time moves
And he won't fade
The ghost in you
He won't fade
Inside you the time moves
And he don't fade

Don't you go
It makes no sense
When all your talking supermen
Just take away the time
And get in the way

Ain't it just like rain
And love, is only heaven away

Inside you the time moves
And he won't fade
The ghost in you
He don't fade
Inside you the time moves
And he won't fade
~~~

27. To The Sky – The Cure (Going Into The Light)
~~~
One perfect morning
I was all alone
Listening to
The blaze of summer

Drifting, I was falling
I was floating in a golden haze
Breathing in the sky blue sounds
Of memories of other days

And in my dreams I was a child
Flowers in my mouth and in my eyes
And I was floating through the colors of a sky
Up to the stars and angels

Up, up, up to Heaven
Up, up, up forever
Up, up, up to Heaven
Up, up, up forever

Turning in my climb
I looked down on a lake
Traced upon the water
There I saw your face

Sang in recollection
Of the times we shared
Then pushed on ever upward
To the sky

And in my dreams I was a child
Flowers in my mouth and in my eyes
And I was floating through the colors of a sky
Up to the stars and angels
~~~

28. Agnus Dei (A choral refrain for Barber’s Adagio) – David Hill and the Westminster Choir (The Final Adagio)
~~~
The choir singing at the requiem mass for Simon and Christopher

Agnus dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Miserere nobis
Agnus dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Miserere nobis
Agnus dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Dona nobis pacem
~~~
