Track Name: The Hypnotist
You came to me like a feather in the breeze,
But you fell like a stone,
Left bruises on my toes,
When you looked in my eyes,
You started a fire,
And it burned so deep,
My bones burned to wire,

So turn your eyes to mine,
And leave your past behind,
Empty out your mind,
Empty out your mind,

Tell me what you see,
Show me what you find,
The monsters in the deep,
The diamonds in the mind

And burn your fire high,
Burn your fire bright,
And tell me what you see,
Show me what you find,
The stories in the trees,
The faces in the fire…
Track Name: Garden
I can’t find the shore,
For this river’s too deep,
I’m tired of swimming,
I just want to sleep,

This water,
It’s rising too fast,
My body just ain’t going to last

And if I descend to the darkness below,
Then plant me a garden,
So something can grow,

This water,
It’s rising too quick,
My consciousness is starting to slip,
This water,
It’s rising too…
Track Name: Closer now
The alligator’s at my neck,
She’s telling me about sex and death,
And ties a black cord round my head,
I shut my eyes and sing instead,
Come in closer now,
Come in closer now,

I’ve made my peace with history,
The past lies where it needs to be,
And every scar contains a story,
Of circumstance and damaged glory,
Come in closer now,
Come in closer now…
Track Name: Shapeshifter
You change your colours every day,
And twist the meaning in the things you try to say,
There’s nothing left for me to hold,
Today was warm but now the night is getting cold,

Shapeshifter come to me,
You’re camouflaged and I can’t see,
Shapeshifter come to me,
And show me what you mean,

I can’t remember how we met,
I needed you but you weren’t there and now there’s nothing left,

Shapeshifter come to me,
I’m colour-blind and I can’t breathe,
Shapeshifter come to me,
And show me what you mean…

Shapeshifter come to me,
You’re camouflaged and I can’t see,
Shapeshifter come to me,
I’m colour-blind and I can’t breathe…
Track Name: The fall
There’s something that she brings,
And it’s winter as it melts into spring,
There’s something that she knows,
That draws mountains out of valleys,
And ashes out of snow,

Come out of the ground,
Up from the deep,
From silence to sound,
Drink the rain from these clouds,
The sun’s falling down,
Like Lucifer’s crown,

There’s something that she sees,
That draws moss out of rocks,
And air from the trees,
There’s something that she believes,
That draws gods out of skies,
And songs from the seas,

Come of the ground,
Up from the deep,
From silence to sound,
Drink the rain from these clouds,
The sun’s falling down,
Like Lucifer’s crown,
The sun’s falling down,
Like Lucifer’s crown.
Track Name: Shelter
Last night I dreamed a dream,
Of lions in a circle,
And scars on the knees,
And we followed the footprints,
For miles and miles,
We followed the tracks,
That led to the wild,

There’s no use in running,
Away from this storm,
And if we try to leave now,
It will just follow us more,

So let’s finish what we started,
One day at a time,
I’ll gather the wood,
If you pour the wine,

We’ll build a shelter,
And build it together,
We’ll build a shelter,
And build it together,
Now build a shelter,
And build it together,
Let’s build a shelter,
And build it together,

Last night I dreamed a dream,
Of smoke in the distance,
And ash in the wind.
Track Name: Restless
I’m as restless as can be,
A storm inside a teacup,
Leaves blowing in the wind,
And tomorrow’s just an echo of today,
A ripple in the pond,
Or a current in the bay,
And now it feels like yesterday,

There’s a strange feeling,
And it’s blowing in the wind,
I don’t know where it’s going,
Sure don’t know where it’s been,
Now it’s here to take me in

Now pick me up and throw me through the sky,
I don’t care how far,
And I don’t care how high,
When I land I’ll kick off both my shoes,
And throw them in the water,
So there’s nothing left to lose,
Now there’s nothing but the blue

There’s a strange feeling,
And it’s blowing in the wind,
I don’t know where it’s going,
Sure don’t know where it’s been,
Now it’s here to take me in.
Track Name: Going home
Through the smoke,
Through the haze,
Through the fog,
Through the maze,

I lost my compass,
And then my map,
Tonight there are no stars,
To guide us back,

We’re a long way from home,
A long way from home,
We’re a long way from home,
A long way from home,
There’s a long way to go,
A long way to go,
There’s a long way to go,
A long way back home,

By the moon,
I found my light,
Reflected from the sun,
And cast into the night,
She lit my path,
And showed my way,
Where to tread my feet,
Throughout the day,

Now we’re going home,
We’re going back home,
Now we’re going home,
We’re on our way home,
There’s a long way to go,
A long way to go,
There’s a long way to go,
A long way back home.
Track Name: Water song
I came by mysterious design,
And I change my form,
All of the time,
You know me by many a name,
I’m a sister of the earth,
And a taker of the flame,

I’m part of the ocean,
And part of the sky,
I’m part of the circle,
That gives birth to life,
I’m part of the day,
And I’m part of the night,
And part of the dark,

I bring both pleasure and pain,
And I run through each of your veins,
So easy to touch,
But so hard to hold,
Sometimes so warm,
Sometimes so cold,

I’m part of the ocean,
And part of the sky,
I’m part of the circle,
That gives birth to life,
I’m part of the day,
And I’m part of the night,
And part of the dark…
Track Name: Grandfather clock
It happens in the blink of an eye,
And it’s a flicker of flight at the start of the night,
In the shadow of an echo of the wind,
It’s a flicker of light,
It’s a flicker of light,
At the start of the night,

When the world starts it’s spinning,
The grandfather clock stops her ticking,
The storm clouds stop their raining,
My mind stops complaining,
My heart stops its aching,
My heart stops it’s.
