Track Name: Young Blood
Young Blood
stick it out
face your palms to the sun
Run through the muck
Fill your bucket from the river

Oh Love pick it up
I Got your back
Your front and sides
These are the hands and the mind of a giver

oh oh oh oh
Young Blood
oh oh oh oh
Young blood

She opened her arms
Her arms to the world
The world threw her down to remind her
to open her ears
her ears to the sound
The sound of the song would define her

She opened her eyes
her eyes to the face
the face of the stranger who held her
no longer held captive
captive to the race
He erased all the chains that compelled her
Track Name: Burning Bone (feat. Kyrstyn Pixton)
I wanna get you in my skin
churning like the ocean
only then can i awake and feel myself begin

I wanna fight for my own strength
cracking through the pavement
bones of harmony
and flesh learning to see

My skeleton of stone
my heart of burning bone
my rapturous tone
my aching for home

My dance upon my tomb
my butterfly wings i've sewn
my aching for home

If you want my spirit whole
release me let me go
only then can i awake
direct my own arrow

I want the freedom to devour
every precious hour
like it is the only reason
for everything im feeling

My skeleton of stone
my heart of burning bone
my rapturous tone
my aching for home

My dance upon my tomb
my butterfly wings i've sewn
my aching for home
Track Name: Rising Tide (feat. Beats Antique)
You're an island of a girl
Adrift in a world with a rising tide
You know that the coming storm
Is gonna be a crazy ride

With your altars made of trash
The aftermath
Of disposable dreams
You know that you were born
For more than what machines provide

I will write you a song that sounds like
A faded photograph
Of your favorite night
Just a little something to remember me by

You can sing along
If you like it enough
Play it on your phonograph
It sounds kinda rough
It's just a little something to remember me by

You're an ocean of a girl
Surrounding a world
With a blackening tide
You know that the coming storm
Is gonna be a crazy ride

With your altars made of bones
The aftermath
Of disposable wings
You know that you were born
For more than what machines provide
Machines provide

I will write you a song that sounds like
A faded photograph
Of your favorite night
Just a little something to remember me by

You can sing along
If you like it enough
Play it on your phonograph
It sounds kinda rough
It's just a little something to remember me by

You can sing along if you like it enough
Just a little something to remember me by
Track Name: Deliverance
Out here
In here
Reaching for the chance to make
a difference
Deliverance
Deliver us on time

What we find
we brushed it off
Dusted off things we didn't see
The fantasy
Fancy
Fancy this as real life

Out there
out where
the worlds shadow seems too much
to touch a strand
to lend a hand
we need a thread to pull us through

The curtain hides
all the lies
all the lies between the folds

What we find
behind the blinds
are the things that we can do

Out here
In here
Reaching for the chance to make
a difference
Deliverance
Deliver us on time
Track Name: Out of Context
take me out of context and i'll get out of my way
oh it seems complicated
it don't have to be complex
its just another day
but look how long we've waited
Track Name: Tricksters and Fools
This road is paved with tricksters and fools
oh deceivers
The gravel's loose so tighten up your shoes
we're all saints and non-believers

A miracle in one hand
and the other holds a ball and chain
we thirst for liberation
we thirst for the rise of fame

This road is paved with pictures and tools
oh revealers
the journeys long so you better make your move
we're all heathens and we're healers

A miracle in one hand
and the other holds a ball and chain
we thirst for liberation
we thirst for the rising flame
Track Name: Traces
Come home to find
say its been a long time
all thats left of you in my mind is traces

I wonder can your essence still fill up
all those
empty spaces

The sight of you is like the morning dew
so refreshing
so sweet
and yet so cold
you're so damn cold sometimes
you're so damn cold sometimes
Track Name: Sparrow Spell
Are you ready to turn the page
Is your hand steady
or shaking from all the rage
you've read it a thousand times before
the same old story
the same old war

Tolling Bells
Silent Ringing
Sorrow Swells
Slowly Singing
The Sparrow's Spell

Will you stand there waiting for the train
Or just start walking
Towards the change
we've been here a thousand times before
the same old story
different door

Tolling Bells
Silent Ringing
Sorrow Swells
Slowly Singing
The Sparrow's Spell

Are you ready to turn the page
Is your hand steady
or shaking from all the rage
you've read it a thousand times before
the same old story
the same old war

the same old story
NO MORE
Track Name: Northern Rain
When we woke up the silence was ringing like a diamond
and the ribbons unfurled like the sighing wind
my heart is beating with the force of the storming sea
as i retreat into thee

North coast
steady rain
places i've never been
feel more like home
than my home does
wanderlust
and bliss
in the bluster

The glint of her eyes reflects the shadow into dawn
revealed by a key beneath the waves
they opened to morning like a dew drops mirrored dream
as the onrush of waters burst into flame

North coast
steady rain
places i've never been
feel more like home
than my home does
wanderlust
and bliss
in the bluster
Track Name: Desert (feat. Djunya and Janover)
I've Walked alone for centuries
my only map
my destiny
So many days spent wandering
Til I become the desert

I drag my feet
I scrape my knees
Guided by starlight and whisperings
Til I become the desert

And the view from above
is the same from the ground yeah
in the middle of the madness
in the madness you are found

I've Walked alone for centuries
my only map
my destiny
So many days spent wandering
Til I become the desert

I lift my feet
I catch the breeze
Guided by starlight and whisperings
Til I become the desert
Til I become the desert
Til I become the desert
when we become the desert
when we become the desert

With this body made of heat
where the day draws the line
I will lay you down again
on the sands of time
on the sands of time yeah
Track Name: Venus
I remember the feeling
yeah it was mid-summer
i dialed your number
it rang and i played you a tune

Now winter's upon us
and the dawn that birthed us
has turned us straight
back into earthdust again
so we pray to the moon

Even Venus couldn't tell
what would become of summers spell
I cast a line off the shore
Drank Fruit of the vine and fell to the floor
and fell to the floor

I remember the feeling
yeah i was mid-slumber
you turned me over
and tucked me under your sky

Now the sky is falling
but falling is learning
the stars are burning
we had to give it a try
so we gave it a try

Even Venus couldn't tell
what would become of summers spell
i cast a line of the shore
Drank fruit of the vine and begged for more
begged for more
Track Name: Passerby
Im just a passerby
always flying above your head
but if you never look up
then how will you know that i'm there

You're just a wanderer i've been
dropping feathers
letters
You never read them
so how will you know that i care

Im headed north
to the land of the midnight sun
Solitary migration
Solitary migration
always moving at the speed of sound

Im just a passerby
always flying above your head
but if you never look up
then how will you know that i'm there

You're just a wanderer i've been
dropping feathers
letters
You never read them
so how will you know that i care

Im headed east
to the land of the rising sun
Solitary migration
Solitary migration
Im headed north
to the land of the midnight sun
solitary migration
solitary migration
Always moving at the speed of sound

Moving at the speed of sound
Moving at the speed of sound
Moving at the speed of sound
Im just a passerby
