Track Name: Geese
Wild geese are flying north today
Will they know where to go to?
Will they know which way is home?
Track Name: Deerheart
Looming fate dancing at the city gates
Old weight lying on the interstate
Through half deserted streets and muttering retreats
His death repeats

I don’t know if I’ll be coming home soon but if i do don’t you tell her
Our sleepless stares found the darkest shadow
In our helpless prayers and young knees hallowed
I heard the deer singing each to each
But i don’t think that they will sing to me
Track Name: Eagle and The Wolf
You are the king of your own lonely castle
Way up there in your tall tower
See me here with my tambourine
On the ground I’ve got nowhere to fall
Not in a tower throwing my long hair down
For some prince to rescue me
From now on I’ve got a new view point
I dreamt that the eagle ate the wolf
He fell to the ground with his tongue hanging out
But i stayed by his side and we became friends
He picked himself up, he was a tough mutt
I was happy that he survived
So the king came down from his lonely castle
And he stood next to me
The sun it shone as the wolf again found his tongue
And he sang a song

We sang a song
Track Name: Sailor Song
I was just a boy when i first stepped off the land
the vessel shivered loosely when the sailors
took my hand
to ol sue i cried ‘my darling i’ll be back
again someday’
but the restless water stole my words away
eighteen years aboard it’s been eighteen years aboard
I loyal to my captain but i can barely wait no more
and all the boys are singing songs bout the day
we’ll reach the shore
but I’m sailing through the dark forevermore
the sailors shared their stories
and their dirty secrets too
they gave me a new name in their ol skeleton crew
I became bad Dan under a pint of ocean spray
my eyes and mouth ridden with decay
eighteen years aboard it’s been eighteen years aboard
I loyal to my whiskey till I can’t see straight no more
and all the boys are singing songs bout the day
we’ll reach the shore
but I’m sailing through the dark forevermore
we were almost home when the vessel sprung a leak
the captain stood and smiled
with the water to his knees
and the sailors cried ‘o lord please don’t take
my life away’
but the turning gale led their prayers astray
eighteen years aboard
we’ve been eighteen years aboard
loyal to the sea cause there ain’t no lord
tell ol Sue to look on past the darkness of the shore
where I’m sailing towards the light forevermore
I was just a boy when I first stepped off the land
now I’m sailing towards the light forevermore
Track Name: Chains
Oh god I’ve discovered love, how good it is
the stars to the moon
I have fallen, unable to rise
what trap is this, what chains are these?
chains that tie my hands, chains that tie my feet
and if I love myself then I love you too
if I love you then I love myself
Track Name: Skeleton
Going back, hear lullabies
kiss her lips she’s under your spell
close your eyes, lay your head in wet sand
fall away
won’t you say it’s real
won’t you say it’s fine
if you say it’s real
I’ll love you with all I have
he needed time, but it was on his side
stroke of midnight the tide has turned
walk on the water
it threatens to pull me in
one footstep at a time
Track Name: The Orchard
Take my hand, and come with me
down to the shore
let’s take a walk
you once told me that no matter how hard it was
we’d always make it through
you’re my best friend, hold me in your arms
so I can fall asleep
take my hand love, we’ll be just fine
in my dreams, i meet you in the ocean
I kiss you like you’re here
take my hand love, let’s pretend this dream is real
sleep tight, sleep tonight
this morning, I wake up next to no one
your arms are empty too
take my hand love, we’ll be just fine
Track Name: All My Love
Now I know where to turn my head
been feeling down, tracing ghosts unfed
you hold my hand, feed me tuck me into bed
all my love
hard to know how I could get through
without you here, guiding me home
Track Name: The Calling
Call me over now
water’s fine come on in
there’s a perfect storm and it’s coming our way
fairy tales don’t last forever do they
they’ll come looking for us, we won’t make a sound
call me constantly
reality is such a lonely world
slip away under the ocean’s covers
we’ll stay here until it all blows over
Track Name: Raindrops
Raindrops they keep on falling
don’t know what to say
sun she keeps on hiding
clouds won’t go away
thought I heard you calling
it was just the wind
raindrops they keep falling
clouds won’t go away
I wish these walls could talk
and say the words I can’t
your eyes they give nothing away
sometimes I think the world
is just a lonely place
where people talk
but never find their words
let me in
Track Name: Let Go
It’s fragile, delicate
get to know it so well then it’s gone
so cherish it, love it
never know when it’s time will come
let go
the anger makes you ugly
and tired, anyhow
so say what you mean, say I love you
say goodbye with a kiss on the cheek
you never know when its time will come
so cherish it, love it
and let it know
Track Name: Delia
Oh my dear take my hand
I fear that I have seen the edge
but if you want I won’t stay
tell me dear should i stay
tender are you?
well that won’t do
many here have died here looking for you
in my sleep or in a daze, in lightest shadows I see your face
dearest of friends, you have lied
now I leave you with heavy mind
and all that passes will meet again
you haunting wretch I’ll wring your neck
but if you want I won’t stay
tell me dear should I stay
