Track Name: Frost Line
spring's so close
yes the valley down below
is full of green
full of thistle and thyme

but i'm so cold living way up high
oh up here
oh at the frost line

the more that you see
oh the more you run and hide
you could find me
up at the frost line

the thaw will come again
and the bumble bees will fly
and the moss will paint the rocks
at the frost line

so close
so close

spring's so close
yes the valley down below
is full of green
full of thistle and thyme

the thaw will come again
and the bumble bees will fly
and the moss will paint the rocks
at the frost line

and the moss will paint the rocks
at the frost line
Track Name: Southern Skies
i hear it's dangerous
out on the southern sea
you know that dangerous
has never stopped me

maybe i'm reckless
or maybe i'm wise
i'm gonna get so lost out in
the southern skies

uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies

i see those waves
and they're ten feet tall
and they're crashin off the bow

i fear the rain may turn into a squall
but we'll make our way somehow

uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies


i see those waves
they're a hundred feet tall
crashin over the bow

i fear the water may drown us all
but we'll make our way somehow

uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies
uh uh oh oh
out in the southern skies

i hear it's dangerous
out on the southern sea
you know that dangerous
has never stopped me
Track Name: Atmosphere
there's a song still hanging in the atmosphere
i'm gonna bring it down
can you hold the ladder
will you help me dear
will you help me out ?
Track Name: Light Up Your Lantern
Blind are the many
proud are the few
you can see the bombs bursting
feel the heat
but what can you do

It's a treacherous world
and it's tried and it's true
that these treacherous tides
will carry us back to the blue

Pick up the pieces
we'll start from scratch
this ship of fools will need a mast
Light up your lanterns
lick the salt from your wounds
and we'll sail 'til dawn my friends
by the light
of the moon

So many kings
with their thrones up on high
a stones throw from the masses
who continue to cry
it's a treacherous world
and it's tried and it's true
that these treacherous times
will carry us back to the blue

Pick up the pieces
we'll start from scratch
this ship of fools will need a mast
Light up your lanterns
lick the salt from your wounds
and we'll sail 'til dawn my friends
by the light
of the moon
Track Name: Stones
cobble stone streets
weary bones and me
stranded again

i'm running from defeat
i found a rusty key
i'll polish til it glistens

listening to a wall of wonder
beneath which lies the past
and oh the lies they're vast
and truth be told
beauty to behold
the only ones that last
the only ones that last
are the stones

oh the restless sea
it stole a part of me
its drifted away

i'm swimming from defeat
i found a rusty key
i'll polish 'til it glistens

listening to a wall of wonder
beneath which lies the past
and oh the lies they're vast
and truth be told
beauty to behold
the only ones that last
the only ones that last
are the stones
Track Name: Far and Away
oh from far and away they came
oh from far and away
oh battling giants with chains
on the crest of a wave

oh when the darkness rose
oh it came with a squall
first
first there were shouts then they froze
and all were silenced by the wall

wall of water
oh the walls of the deep
walls i'd rather not keep
walls made of wire
oh the walls in the ground
walls i'm no longer building oh
i'm tearing them down

oh to far and away they fled
oh to far and away
carrying emptiness
on the backs of their dead

but oh when the new day rose
oh there was room for them all
first
they spread ashes and seeds
all along the ruins of the wall

walls of the desert
oh the walls of the sand
walls that no longer stand
walls made of wire
oh the walls in the ground
walls i'm no longer building oh
wall of water
oh the walls of the deep
walls i'd rather not keep
walls made of wire
oh the walls in the ground
walls i'm no longer building oh
i'm tearing them down

oh from far and away they sang
oh from far and away
Track Name: Picture
i want to paint you a picture
with the pain of my history
'til my words are the colors
of the shadows from my memory
spread it out on paper
and hang it up for all to see
layer after layer
give it back to the mystery
i wanna lay it down
Track Name: Come Crazy
you watch the dark and
your calling card is empty
a soap opera and
the looking glass is empty too

come crazy
come crazy you
just maybe
it's not just you

i sleep all day
to let the din fall away
the madness of the city below
drowned in snow
the silence
of a winter moon
Track Name: Liberte
the surface is shadow
and the sky billows
with a thousand lights i don't know
the ripple of water
is bringing me under
in the afterglow

and this golden ship
she's warn and she's torn
like this golden heart
she's weathered the storm
so many
that the next one will tear her apart

i drink in the sea
at the first sight of lady liberty
but she's rollin' them dice
there's smoke in her eyes
oh she cannot see
and i'm thinking of you
and what will i do
with my dollar a day
i'll send it on home
'cuz my heart is a stone
'til you come and stay

oh oh
til you come and stay
oh oh
til you come and stay

her purpose is shadowed
and her skirt billows
in a thousand nights i don't know
the crippled daughter
is bringing me under
in the afterglow

and this golden dream
she's warn and she's torn
like this golden heart
she's weathered the storm
so many
that the next one will tear her apart

i drink in the sea
at the first sight of lady liberty
but she's rollin' them dice
there's smoke in her eyes
oh she cannot see
and i'm thinking of you
and what will i do
with my dollar a day
i'll send it on home
'cuz my heart is a stone
'til you come and stay

oh oh
til you come and stay
oh oh
til you come and stay

the city is shadow
and the sky billows
with a thousand lights i don't know
the ripple of water
is bringing you over
in the afterglow

and this golden ship
she's warn and she's torn
like this golden heart
she's weathered the storm
so many
that the next one will tear her apart
Track Name: Garden
there is no map for where we're goin'
we'll have to trust the stars
and all that we know is what we were told
and now we'll have to start

to build our own stories with fresh churned earth
it's too late for fairy tales
we'll need water and dirt
so water with hope and bury your hurt
and soon enough
there'll be a garden

this one's a newborn with clear blue eyes
she's free from history and all of its lies
so we'll say farewell to the ghosts of the past
and we'll write a new book at long
long last

yes this is a story of what it's all worth
the pain and the glory
the death and the birth
so water with hope and bury your hurt
and soon enough there'll be a garden

there is no map for where we're goin'
we'll have to trust the stars
and all that we know is what we were told
and now we'll have to start

to build our own stories with fresh churned earth
it's too late for fairy tales
we'll need water and dirt
so water with hope and bury your hurt
and soon enough
there'll be a garden
