Track Name: Wanderer
My Lover, My Savior
Are you there in the forest grounds?
I'll find you! I'll have you!
Let's eat together again.

My Lover, My Savior,
Are you there on the mountain tops?
I need you!
Your food is getting cold.

Love me, LOVE.

Where are you?
Where have you gone off to?
I need you!
You know you're my only friend.

Love me, LOVE.

Be my heart, be my soul.
Be my life, make me whole.
Tuck me in, kiss my head.
Pull me away from the dead.

Love me, LOVE.
Track Name: Aquamarine
Quiet sounds underground.
Surface disrupts, but it won't be enough
to snuff out the soft sounds.

A deep, dark core.
Don't ask for more.
I'll hide my truth -
Protect my truth.

Aquamarine hides in between
volcanic eruptions of old.
Lovely sea-blue is made new
in the dust of stories over-told.

A deep, dark core.
Don't ask for more.
I'll hide my truth -
preserve my truth.
I'll hide my truth -
protect my truth.
Track Name: Prayer
I found your Ocean;
stood on your shore.
I stepped inside.
Swallow me whole.

Mother Earth

I climbed your long arms
gesturing skyward.
Could you hold me?
Close to your heart?

Mother Earth
Track Name: Wildfire
The Children don't know their hearts; know their songs.
They're forest sprites with false gods that burn home.

Earth, Mother Earth.
Please don't desert us.
Love us, heal us!
You are LOVE. You are home.
You are the land from which we're born.
We shall return.
Turn to dust.
Half of my home forgot the Earthsong.

Forgotten world once tethered to Mother Earth.
Look outside and see the world we've turned our backs on.

Earth, Mother Earth.
Please don't desert us.
Love us, heal us!
You are LOVE. You are home.
You are the land from which we're born.
We shall return.
Turn to dust.
Half of my home forgot the Earthsong.
Track Name: Innisfree
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And I live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping
slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket
sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.
Track Name: June
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Old
I'll eat the sun if you ask me to.
I'll kill the God's - they don't like me and you.

A new world for us.
We'll build it up from nothing with our hands.
How strange can it be?
We'll be free from the Old Men.

Let's burn their ground - they stole it from someone else.
Tear down their names - they won't control us anymore!

A new world for us.
We'll build it up from nothing with our hands.
How strange can it be?
We'll be free from the Old Men.
Track Name: Mountain
I'm a Mountain - Me. What do you see?
Tower spirit of the Earth - Grounded and Free.

I'm a Mountain - Core. Wish you'd see me more.
Molten heart, over time, melts open my Door.

I'm older now. Find me, somehow.

I'm a Mountain - Strong. Hear my Earthsong.
Slightly Broken, off key. I choose to sing wrong.

I'm a Mountain - Me. What do you see?
I've been wishing, all this time, that you'd come back to me.

I'm older now. Find me, somehow.

Find me, somehow.
