Track Name: Working the Paths
please my love don't let me down
be sure that i'm nowhere to be found
earth bed harvest fortune bound
chewing leaves fresh from the ground
hold me now
hold me
hold me now
in your arms
come my sister don't make a sound
this side of the clouds no one's around
and come my brother i'll track you down
work the forest to the ground
hold it now
hold it
hold it now
in your heart
Track Name: Beach Prayer
fading warmth of the evening
so much time for believing
the sun sinks low beneath the sea
and the last few remaining
burn low and start fading
as the people start to stand and walk away
now there's just light enough to cast a shade
of awe upon the plans we've made
as the wind starts to blow in from the east
kicking dust up off the road
hide our tracks if we should go
leave the future down to feeling
turn my head away
my head away
beneath the shadow of these mountains
spill my mind like a fountain
the page to my love so far away
but i just talk myself in circles till the fire goes out
i'd just keep it in my pocket anyway
anyway
anyway
staring down at your reflection
getting high without direction
as the full moon rises in the sky
and you watch as the trees
start to bend and try and shake their leaves
but the summers here can put up quite a fight
Track Name: Salt Cellar Song
following no direction
i was walking up around the rocks
found a little pile of roaches
guess this is someones favorite spot
i sat down and looked out
thought the view was pretty good
i stayed a while and left no trace
like any good trespasser should
maintaining is all our illusions need
to keep these solitary spaces
and that's just what i'd want
for all my sacred places
Track Name: Extend
doubt in my head
thorn in my wing
with truth so misled
i struggle to sing
but a word left unsaid
and the worry it brings
is the first broken thread
and i'm unraveling
extend a limb into the light
but it's burned away
burned away
yeah fate don't put up a fight
it'll happen anyway
anyway
guess roots weren't meant to see the light
underground they'll stay
ground we'll stay
all our lives
now i am reminded
don't wish to rewind
but till hope's realigned
i'm wasting my time
and with all that i find
it gets hard to unwind
but these stems so entwined
they're leaving me blind
Track Name: Cape
you're so good to me i know
over rocks and the sea we go
close up another morning and stow
away with another load
and the water hold distant between
ragged flags on the wind
dried in the sun and stained
washed out salt in the grain
rope grown hideout again
but no two harbour the same
easy on the soul
you know i've had so much fun
but i've been out here too long under the sun
they always said we'd gone to far
but you never really had to look that hard
to find us
don't fall away to helplessness
you can't hold solitary fear
we're worlds apart but that's just meaningless
when it's all jungle out here
don't fall away to helplessness
you can't hold solitary fear
i'm tired, why suffer such recklessness
and wake up lost for another year
Track Name: Making Time
chase the highway down till your eyes are like setting suns
red rimmed postcard smoking eye of a gun
lay your head down but your mind's still on the run
are the best endings the ones that never come
know where you've come from
everything you've done
before its too late
living time caught in the headlights of the dawn
see just how lucky i was only now it has all gone
finding reason lost for words and holding on
still around for now but it might not be for long
darling they're just songs
how can good have turned so wrong
before its too late
Track Name: Gwimbri
mmm burning sky
set your shadows where i lie
when this land holds nothing for me
turn my head to the sea
mmm turning mind
lead me places we all could find
mmm lend me your eyes
i'll release them to the skies
mmm deep night
i still move with clearest sight
still stand these four walls
you are in a different light
