Track Name: Underpin
I lost my love today
In the bitterest of ways
With wilder oats I'm sewn
Through generations down

It's not about how we feel
Day to day
Under the douglas tree
There was a gift for me

I lost myself today
In a myriad of ways
With wilder oats I'm sewn
The generations gone

It's not about how we feel
Day to day
You give and I receive -
There's no other way for me

And we march to the beat of our youthful recklessness
Oh what a mess!
Did your mother tell you?
Did your father warn you?
Don't let your culture show you that!

It's not about how we feel
Day to day

It's not all about how you feel
Track Name: Trace
Plastic bags and dish rags
And all peculiar things that are not ours
I trace our two left palms
The lines are kind of vague
Oh the outliers

In my head
I had to lay you to bed because you
Come and you go as you please
And you do it with a disconcerting ease
You fade away

Silly thing - boys will be boys
But I know some men
Who would fight to their death for them
And I've been swimming more times than I care to tell
I'm the best ten pin bowler
I've seen all of the movies from Cohen to Warner, but
You fade away

And in my head
I had to lay you to bed because you
Come and you go as you please
And you do it with a disconcerting ease
You fade away

And you left behind the blame
And you left behind the blame
And you left behind the blame
And you left behind the blame
And you left behind the blame
And you left behind the blame

I think you left behind your name
Track Name: Interlude
You fade away, this time...

And you're in deficit
There is an iron weight, a sadness
And now I'm here to love
And I am full - He loved me first

I see you're chained away
You live with a violent thirst
Intrepid and aware
Yeah I'm on clouds - He loved me first

And you're in deficit
There is an iron weight, a sadness
And now I'm here to love
And I am full - He loved me first

I see you're chained away
You live with a violent thirst
Intrepid and aware
Know one thing - He loved us first
Track Name: Wild Fire Sky
Isobel my love come down to the sea
I'm still trying to dig down through the dust and the dirt
It has deformed our purity
'Cause when silence comes
She's a blade in her fist
And a line in-between us

When I was a child I talked like a child
And I walked with two windows -
Wide eyes preoccupied on the blazing city sky
And when night time drew close
We'd lie and be held
I wouldn't lie to myself or any other to get me there

Come on and be my cherubim
I've been waiting for somebody to let in
But you do keep hiding from it

You're vacant
You're vacant
It's your vacancy
You're vacant
You're vacant

Come on and be my cherubim
I've been waiting for somebody to let in
But you do keep hiding from it
Track Name: Roving
Caught in-between with every action that you take
I'm a waif in the wind
Now I can see my fate:

Wasted are years working on something new
It's not what you say - it's what you do
And nothing's leaping forward to allay all my fears of you
It's what you do

Now you're onto me
You want two for one but there is a price to pay
And it won't delay

And I can't help but feel like the pawn to your king
Slowly drifting
What is this we have here?
Too many wasted

Wasted are years working on something new
It's not what you say - it's what you do
And nothing's leaping forward to allay all my fears of you
It's what you do

And now you're far from me
And I have so many voices
Rocking in their own way
Golden glazed leaves
Autumn dancing
Rising warm breeze
Hear the everlasting
Hear the everlasting
Hear the everlasting
Track Name: Resound
I lost a dear old friend the other night
I couldn't bring her back no matter all my might
She qualified my depths of mind
With tears and laughter of the kind

A room full of stars and some papers around
Left me sober when I picked her from the ground
I tried to revive but the words were too strong
My tongue kills her
And now she lives in a sullen love song

An idol slumping on his sunken throne
Is vulnerable underneath all that Testerone
One fragile human only flesh and bone
Brittle bearing all that's said and done

A blow to head left a million to blame
As they bathed in his light and then snuffed out the flame
They tried to revive when they saw it was wrong
But a thousand bad words made a dirge of his song

I lost a dear old friend the other night
I killed her with my harbouring heart in all its spite
She qualified my deepest fright -
I'm just the same try as I might

A room full of stars and some papers around
And the ring of the bell left a terrible sound
I tried to revive but the damage was done
My tongue killed her
And now she lives in a sullen love song
Track Name: Jill Bolte Taylor
Race down from the top
And I can feel my body sway all out of phase
Into a nebulous haze

For I am you
And you are earth
Oh the clarity
The high stakes, our monies break
How we relate

Stars for eyes when 'I' is not here
A child of knowing uninhibited by fear
And what remains in this crazy cluster
Without the aches and the pains?

For I am you
And you are earth
Oh the clarity
The high stakes, our monies break
How we relate

And I am endless, and I am endless
And I am penned in negatives
And oh, oh I'm ready to give

And I am endless, and I am endless
And I am penned in negatives
And oh, oh I'm ready to love

And I am endless, and I am endless
And I am penned in negatives
And oh, oh I'm ready to live

And I am endless, and I am endless
And I am penned in negatives
And oh, oh I'm ready to love
Track Name: I Am
Come out of the water
Come out of the blue
Let me hold my child
There's nothing more for you to do

That's not what we fought for
Not the scene we drew
Well you scream and you fight but I still love you

I Am
The First and the Last
I am expansive
And I'm always waiting for you to come home
I Am

Who told you a fable (pleasure and pain to a pointless cause)?
You're still young and able
But you carry yourself as an overcome force

I Am
The First and the Last
Incongruity does not live in me
One day when all will see:
I AM

I wait on the horizon
And I'm blazing in your way
I can see the embers rising
And I long to hear you say:

"Step in - set in motion and come back
Step in - set in motion and come back
Step in - set in motion and come back
Step in - set in motion and come back"

I'm reaching out my arms here to meet you
Hold you where you are
I'm satisfied in all your faults and your failings
I loved you from the start

I'm reaching out my arms here to meet you
Hold you where you are
I'm satisfied in all your faults and your failings
I loved you from the start

I'm reaching out my arms here to meet you
Hold you where you are
I'm satisfied in all your faults and your failings
I loved you from the start

I'm reaching out my arms here to meet you
Hold you where you are
I'm satisfied in all your faults and your failings
I loved you from the start
