Track Name: The Journey
Where do you stand in the forest
When the trees rise higher than the peaks
When your legs sink deeper as the snow falls
And the frost takes hold of your cold cold cheeks


Well I've tried
But I can't go on any longer
I'm growing weak
If I break stride
White light will carry me onto another scene
but its not comforting

Why would you step in the river
When the currents too fast and sleek
When the minnows dart towards your ankles
And the rocks get tossed and tear up your feet

Well I've tried
But I can't go on any longer
I'm growing weak
If I break stride
White light will carry me onto another scene
but its not comforting

Whats to come of this mountain
Where shadows cover beneath
When you look up and wonder what passes
But make not attempts to reach
Well climb lonely fella'
And find what you seek
Cause there's no use for the journey
If you don't move towards what you need

Well I've tried
But I can't go on any longer
I'm growing weak
If I break stride
White light will carry me onto another scene
but its not comforting

Well I've tried
But I can't go on any longer
I'm growing weak
If I break stride
White light will carry me onto another scene
but its not comforting

No its not comforting
Track Name: The Ocean
We set for the sea at the brink of day
Grab your things cause I see the light
Passing over the highlands and under our sails
Kiss the ground as you bury your knives

Hold onto some earth kid
You might not see it for awhile
It's the ocean that holds us now
And its motions that will bring us back

It was twelve passed 3 when I found my way
Distant grounds rose above the sea
Complaining of space the waves took away
All direction they once carried me

Hold onto some earth kid
You might not see it for awhile
It's the ocean that holds us now
And its motions that will bring us back

It's the ocean that holds us now
And its motions that will bring us back
Track Name: River Birch
I saw you as the river birch
With water to your knees
Sturdy as the current moved
its bulled me back like thieves
do

I'm more like smokey water
The sea that can't be seen
Your beauty lies in the catkins
My fortunes lie beneath
you

With grounds invisible to many
While you stand at plenty feet
High above me's where I see you
Where do you see me
too

I saw you as the moonlight
A distance too far to reach
But close enough for comfort
As I'm the ground beneath
you

I'm bound up by this hemisphere
Though I'm of simple needs
High above me's where I see you
Where do you see me
too
Track Name: Two Birds
Two birds decide that they'll fly away
When they see us miserably standing astray
It's not our competence nor tolerence love
It's just our need to get away
And she's like, "well then how do you love me?"
And I said, "In many ways"

Hold your tongue love
I've heard enough
Don't waste your breath cause'
You wouldn't before!

Oooo ooo ooo ooo ooo

She said, you stare up at the birds, up at the birds and you fly away!
Well I get up passed your words cause their wings take me away
She said, you stare up at the birds, up at the birds and you fly away!
I said, Darlin it's the simple things and they tend to take me away

Well I am a walking warrior and I am a saint
I tip toe to issues and rip through to diffuse the blaze
I'm golden, I'm smoldering, shouldering on your love
Im rolling, unfolding, upholding all, is that enough?

Hold your tongue love
I've heard enough
Don't waste your breath cause'
You wouldn't before!

Oooo ooo ooo ooo ooo

She said, you stare up at the birds, up at the birds and you fly away!
Well I get up passed your words cause their wings take me away
She said, you stare up at the birds, up at the birds and you fly away!
I said, Darlin it's the simple things cause they tend to take me away

Take me away
Take me away
Take me away
I need to get away
Get away
Take me away
I need to get away
I need to get away
I need to get away
Track Name: Innocent
Poor lady lays here
Steps from the door
Street drenched in people
And stairs trenched and worn

There's a testimonial token
That hangs above the porch
Mustn't have been looking
As the body hit the floor

But thats all I know
But hats all I know
But thats all I know
But thats all I know

Was it the ice that took your balance
Or the silt that slipped your course
Were the steps built too damn sturdy
To hold your brittle torso

Cause the wind could be to blame babe
It's quite the forceful force
Or the hands that pushed you
They pushed you to the floor

But thats all I know
But hats all I know
But thats all I know
But thats all I know

But thats all I know
But hats all I know
But thats all I know
But thats all I know
