Track Name: Winter
all through the darkness
a cold bout of winter
when i awake i away
wind gathers 'round me
cold equalizer
teaching how to learn
how to listen

tell me how deep down can you go?
who will be the guide?
trust it in the silence
trust your rhythmic hide

all through the darkness
cold bout of winter
we will eat oats until the thaw
and when my cup is dry
i will take it raw

leave me something like left over daylight
breathing when nothing more comes to mind
something like leftover daylight
Track Name: Messages
many a message of the messengers
said lay your body down and touch the earth
so i be stepping out into a brave future
charting voyager on the perimeters of time
day by day
though i don't know the way
don't know the way
soul before flesh
true dem say
so i be on my way be on my way

unplug the kettle unplug the phone
turn off expectations sleep alone
focus on the moment
every soul tone
all shades of grey and all folds
don't focus on the cold cold stone
or impasses blocked by your bones

focus on the feeling

hunting through the night
hunting for my core
something of spirit to adore
so could colombia be knocking at my door
i dive to the depths of his ocean floor
we travelers travelling through time
separated though the continents do bind
so i got a landmass that's mine
breathe my body back
and there i find

it's where we begin
stardust's next of kin
brave and bold as a sin
to chart the evolution of our skin
knowledge seeker from within
though we don't know the wind
we're brave and bold to begin
Track Name: Follow Your Heart
follow your heart down a muddy muddy road
wait for the sun to dry the rain
then follow that heart down another road again

the only light is your light
the only right your light

so follow that heart to the tallest mountain peak
listen to mighty eagle speak
then following that heart into the darkest night

the only light is your light
the only right your light

wait - don't change
your shape
just wait
because i've got an angel on the way
and to me she singing

eileen
my momma says be there for me
Track Name: Played in the Cards
i call your name
your face looks the same
but your name has changed

the spaces between
the light cascading
breaking waves unfolding

and the spaces between
the cards unfolding
ferns unfurl and so too i have come undone
set sail to open water
played in the cards and ruled by the sun

i see your face and your grace given
to ignite the flame
illuminate
what is mine i will take
what is yours you take

and the spaces between
the cards unfolding
ferns unfurl and so too i have come undone
set sail to open water
played in the cards and ruled by the sun
Track Name: the City
out of step
tell me what's in store
when there is no more to horde
across an open land
of signals sent
we put another message in

beautiful woman
guiding light
she shines beauty into the dark of night
beautiful mother
self sacrifice
even in her solitude she smiles

the city will liberate you
the city will feed you too
the city will steal you
and starve you too

nowhere to hide
she steps inside of her body
stranger than before
count down each pace
each passing face
until she turns her body inside out

pink sky to raise the morning into view
held in favour made bright by
the power of the moon
you know there are truths we cannot say
we don't find them they find us
it goes this way

the city will liberate you
the city will feed you too
the city will steal you
and starve you too
Track Name: Flesh Failures / Let the Sunshine In
we starve look at one another
short of breath
walking proudly in our winter coats
wearing smells from laboratories
facing a dying nation
a moving paper fantasy
listening for the new told lies
with supreme vision and lonelitude

somewhere inside you know there is a rush
of greatness
who knows what stands beside and in between us
i fashion my future on films in space
silence tells me secretly everything

let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
the sunshine in.
