First track off 'Wave 1', Imperial Party's first full-length album, which will be released January 2017.



Oh, Streams Of Time
Can't you see that you are mine
And in tantalizing dreams
I won't fall into routine
I feign at the thought
That you are more than just a son
But less than just a bird
Captivated at the turn

Oh, I'm not here
Oh, I'm not here
Oh, I'm not here

Launch towards the moon
Yell your plea onto the stars
A dream within a net
A big-town bishop with a head
And a truth you won't believe
With a lie you won't achieve
A person's only fault
And the reason that you'll fall

Oh, I'm not here
Oh, I'm not here
Oh, I'm not here

Instead I'll sit at base
Of my problems and disgrace
And pump in to my mind
All the beauty you can find
And won't you save me now
As this sound is fading out
And pour a drink for two
And the thing you wouldn't do

Oh, I'm not here
Oh, I'm not here
Oh, I'm not here

(Spoken Word bit)
"And in a little town, above the sky
it all awaits.
Your hopes and dreams
and mine, too.
For you
to regret
but never to choose.
But don't fret young one, for we all see
all the seeds in the garden
but never the tomatoes in the seeds,
you know?"
