Track Name: In the Stone
Down by the river
where maple leaves fall
down there’s the place
where I had it all

You know that you’ve fallen
when you’re two hands
are bound to his body
like tight metal chains

Oh, a crack in the stone

Stare in his
and you might as well
stare at the sun
till you cannot tell

if it’s green grass or dust
a house or a home
and is all this
what I’ve now come to own

Oh, a crack in the stone
Track Name: My Emptiness
I’d like this space to be left empty
if you don’t mind
don’t be too loving or too kind

I’d like this space to be left empty
it’s my one need
it’s where I scratch the walls and bleed

My emptiness is me and mine
it’s me and mine

I’d like these holes to be left hollow
if you don’t mind
don’t cross the borders I’ve defined

I’d like these holes to be left hollow
if you don’t mind

It’s where I dance naked and blind

My emptiness is me and mine
it’s me and mine
Track Name: Cut the Rope
Take my eyes, my hands
and empty all the books upon my shelf
my feet, my all
then see if I can still stand straight and tall

So I’ll be sailing away with my boat
cause water don’t leave traces
Cut the rope
I’m hoping to stay afloat

Round your cave you stray
like wolves awaiting for a helpless prey

So I’ll be sailing away with my boat
cause water don’t leave traces
Cut the rope
I’m hoping to stay afloat
Track Name: Dearest Forsaken
Dearest forsaken where are you now?
how does it feel on the highest of hills
what do you see from the widest and deepest of fields?

Dearest forsaken I yearn for your touch
sanity now has become hard to find
all of my dearest and loved ones are losing their minds

Would you break the fall
would you care if this boat starts sinking
as the shore is drifting
if this boat starts sinking
and the water takes its toll

Dearest forsaken we’re climbing too high
too high for us now to start coming down
too far and high to start burning those wearing the crown

Dearest forsaken you wouldn’t believe
we’re fighting for breath as they tighten the chain
we’re numb to the point where we cannot feel pleasure or pain

Would you break the fall
would you care if this boat starts sinking
as the shore is drifting
if this boat starts sinking
and the water takes its toll
Track Name: Round the Fire
Once an old man told me
about the cat that ate the bird
how it was chewing on its wing
till it got straight up to its head

Well love, that the way of nature
and as saddening as it is
we shall keep up with our dancing
till we cannot feel our knees
I can’t feel my knees

Round round the fire
round round the fire
they danced

Then I heard them cheering
rushing to the city square
where a man was to be hung
and in a sec they’ll pull his chair
Track Name: The Shallows
Please forgive my folly, love
for my thoughts keep hover
on these far and foreign lands
ones I must discover

Might I always choose to lack?
would you bare to take it
as I walk the maze when
the straight road is waiting?

Run from the shallows and into the deep
our soul awakens when loosing its grip

Must I choose from left or right?
Must I pick one colour?
where do all edges collide?
where does earth meet fire?

Run from the shallows and into the deep
our soul awakens when loosing its grip
Track Name: Those Arms
How far is far for you?
how deep is deep?
where does it ache the most?
what is too steep?

Lead me there where
I’ll be held by those arms

How low is low for you?
how high is high?
Mornings are beautiful
when you ask why

Lead me there where
I’ll be held by those arms

In our loneliness
we will be found one day
It’ll be the day
in which you’ll make me stay

Spring will be upon us
in it’s brightest light
in my vernal dress
you’ll hold me ever tight

Held by those arms
I’ll be held by those arms
Held be those arms
I’ll be held by those arms
Track Name: Big Fish
Let go of my hand when I get to three
one two three
I’m going to swim with the big fish
across the sea
The water in here is too dirty to bare
my journey I cannot share

Let go of my hand when I get to three
one two three
throwing away all my guns
I am swimming free
The water in here is to dirty to see
down and down they’re taking me

If I let go of you will you go
If I let go of you
will my tears then turn into snow

Let go of my hand when I get to three
one two three
I’m sailing away to a land
that I can’t foresee
The water in here is to dirty to see
down and down they’re taking me

If I let go of you will you go
If I let go of you
will my tears then turn into snow
Track Name: Forest
Shout, shout it more and more
no one hears when you’re
deep in the forest

If a tree would fall
would they know at all
would someone notice

Hey love, have we gone too far
down this road?
cover me
cover me

Boy, heavy are my eyes
my feet fail to rise
deep in this forest

Hey love, have we gone too
far down this road?
cover me
cover me
