Track Name: Falling in Time
Falling in Time
Falling in Time
Falling in a Cloud of Tomorrow
Looking for a Key we can borrow

And many days are many lines
To many roads that we could climb

I'm not the one
I'm not the one
I'm not the answer that you'll find
Only to wander and unwind

And many days are many lines
To many roads that we could climb
Track Name: Burst
It was a minor plan
It was a minor flaw
The fiery glow of beginning began

And the sun all in flames for the first time
And the planets content in a straight line

Celestial bodies and bones
Find their way into a new light
It's a sudden collision
A sudden right

They are home
In all their reverie

They are fighting
For a chance to be
Track Name: Fish
Call into the red line
Reach into the pale thin air
Stare into the sun bold
Give away that blank white stare

He's around but don't follow him
He's a fish in the sea
Couldn't breathe
It was killing him
It's a blank memory

It's better this way living today
Track Name: Firefly
Firefly the night is kind to you
In the grass and on the morning dew
Even wind and air and melody
Sing a song and leave

Body's torch alight against the sky
Under messages of ancient time
Constellations sit and stare below
As you shake and move and go

And is the ground still hollow?
And is the ground still there?
And are the stars still empty?
And are the trees still there?

See the blush of morning pink and blue
Underlying everything you do
Hear the call of never ending days
Pushing, winding, stay
Track Name: Spring
Spring is a lovely flower
Spring is a lovely flower
There is little time
But you don't seem to mind

Spring is a bow and arrow
Spring is a bow and arrow

Deep into my heart
It blows the world apart

I'll walk here with you
For a day or two
I'll sing here with you
If you want me to

But I'm not around much longer
And I'm here to say goodbye

Spring is a pitter patter
Spring is a pitter patter
Moving here and there
All without a care
Track Name: Sun Song
Light as a feather she tiptoes
Into the red and the sunshine
Taking a step at a time in her mind
It's a new day
It's an old day

Going halfway through the hills
Moving upward standing still
Taking flight without a sound
In a way she comes around

Remember the month when he kissed you
It was the right and the wrong time
Taking a step at a time in her mind
It's a new day
Track Name: Oh Little Shell
Oh little shell of mine
Oh little strings
Oh little harp
Oh little heart

Under the mountain you sing
So sleepily
And silently
Oh was it she?

Who left your tiny bone
Amongst the silt and stone
Who breathed a little breath in you
And left you on your own

Oh little mystery of mine
Oh little strings
Oh little heart
Oh little harp
Track Name: Tonada al Tiempo
Los Laberintos que crea el tiempo
Se desvanecen, se desvaneen
Y el oro que discrubimos
Se convierte en piedras negras
Se convierte en piedras negras

Solo queda la corriente del viento
Solo queda la corriente del viento
Solo queda

La bella doncella mueve los hombros hasta las rodillas
Respirando entre notas con un aire extravagante
Sus pañuelos que vuelan con locura entre todo su belleza

Solo queda la corriente del viento
Solo queda la corriente del viento
Solo queda

Entre los tilos un anciana recuerda dias de prisa
Mira fijamente al suelo que se niega moverse
Sentado en el tiempo
Sentado en el tiempo

Solo queda la corriente del viento
Solo queda la corriente del viento
Solo queda
Track Name: House
There is a house where the dawn comes in
And the night spills out in to the ocean
You can hide away
You can choose to stay
If the day presents the notion

Mountains of boxes and paper clips
Sedimentary lives of women
The masses of paintings and glass

There was never a sun when the dawn was new
From the perch on the roof where the starling flew
When humanity
Scored that house of mine
Track Name: Cave of Stars
In my cave of stars
In my cave of stars
In my cave of stars
From a twelve year sleep
With demons and gods and worms

Water into light
Water into light
Water into light
Swinging from the leaves
The dew and grass and seedling

Mother
Mother
Show me
Track Name: Wooden Box
Wooden box without a key
Awaits there
Trapped inside darkness lies and leaves
Frozen
Cold and empty fire on her mind
but not the
Hands that try to open try and find
The inside

Painted flowers glow on the table
Flat and will not grow on the vine
Painted flowers glow

Wooden box without a key awaits there
Trapped inside darkness lies and leaves
Frozen
Cold and empty ashes on her mind
But not the
Hands that try to open try and find
The inside
Track Name: Elements
The elements align to make a big blue rock
Above the world we know for sure
From this high view there is a cure
We race into the sky just like an aeroplane
It's not a question or a choice
It's just an unrelenting voice

Climb into my soul into my heart into my fallen rubble
Stare into my heart into my soul into my sum and double
I'm not asking you to be a part of this
I'm only pointing out that it has already happened
so

I'll take you on a trip to see the grit and ground
Where is the separation of
What is below what is above
We stand upon the shore where nothing seems to change
It's not a question or a choice it's just an unrelenting voice
Track Name: Thought Thieving Hen
Sing a simple melody
For the road is long
Let your heart fill openly
With a sacred song

I gave my thoughts to a little hen
She took them but never back again

Find a little firestone
All aglow and clean
Place it on your windowsill
For a better scene

I only have time for little things
Trinkets and trestles and grackle wings

Sing a simple melody
For the road is long
Let your heart fill openly
With a sacred song
