Track Name: January Song
It’s the new year, it’s a new day
The sun is rising but the words are just the same
Am I the same?

All the work, all the time
And I’m still learning how to fly
Can I fly?

I once thought that it would always glow
But in this up and down how will I know

The wind to ride home
The one to sing for
How?

It’s the new year, and it’s a new day
With one step forward everything’s changed
I’ve changed.
Track Name: The Rope ('til my fingers bleed)
The sage, the sailor and me
A cunning rope I weave
Strand over strand, again and again
‘til my fingers bleed

With words that spun inside his head
The sage would weave a silver web
The wisdom drops of dew on every thread
I drank it in, I sucked him dry
I left him young and wondering why
The stories of his heart were filled with dread

And oh the rope I weave

The sailor he was the one
To set his sights upon the sun
Let fly the sails make for the horizon
He taught me how to feel the wind
To follow stars, to follow him
But left me for the burn of salt on skin

And oh the rope I weave.

The sage, the sailor and me
A cunning rope I weave
Strand over strand, again and again
‘til my fingers bleed
Track Name: And I Glow
I am the moon and I glow, glow
I am your blood I will fill you up

Tremble the sound when my heat strikes ground
Bend in the trees, I am the storm that buckles your knees

But am I too bright for you?
Am I too big for you to hold on to?

Remember my mouth on your mouth, mouth
I bare the teeth that make you bleed

But am I too bright for you?
Am I too big for you to hold on to?

For I am the moon and I glow...
Glow
Track Name: Little Bullet
Empty hands wont make a mark
Covered eyes still find a heart
I have climbed over these walls
Only to find you were never here at all

A little bullet got a hold of my heart
The shot runs wild

No man’s land can be so loud
How did the end sneak by the crowd?

A little bullet got a hold of my heart
The shot runs wild

I feel so young, startled, but old
You’re not here, there’s nowhere to go
Am I even standing anymore?
A hollow gift, the lead I left
Beside the walls you built so tall
You’ll find the pieces if ever you come back
Of that little bullet, deadened metal
Blackened heart, I shot that pistol

A little bullet got a hold of my heart
The shot runs wild
Track Name: The Waves
Put me in the waves and baby I’m gone, gone
That rising tide will call me home

To the endless sea
My edges bleed
Lost in me
Lost at sea
The rising

I’ll rage and I’ll storm like oceans do
I want to be still and I need to move
Am I still for you?

Will you hold
This boundless soul
At your shore
Though the waves they push and pull
How I pull…

If you let go
I’ll succumb to the undertow
Pulled far from land
Too free for any hands to hold
I’m alone again

Put me in the waves
Track Name: Epilogue
I’ve been here before
Far from any shore

Down deep
Deep down down down

I wont hold my breath
As I sink to the bottom again

Down deep
Deep down down down

Eyes forget the sun
Arms be still, it’s done

Down deep
Deep down down down
