Track Name: Ripples
You make the ripples on the pond
But they forget you in the morning
But don’t forget about the rock
Who’s waiting patient in the bottom

Take the time to be there
Let the river slowly build

Stranger things will happen
In the madness of your ghost
Keep dancing in the moonlight
But you’ll never be the wolf
And all I know
Is all that’s left won’t grow

You hide from writings in the wall
Afraid that time will make you weaker
The wall of fire is getting close
And all the smoke will bring you deeper

Take the time to be here
Let the river slowly build

Stranger things will happen
In the madness of your ghost
Keep dancing in the moonlight
But you’ll never be the wolf
And all I know
Is all that’s left won’t grow
Track Name: Nightingale
I’ve been told by a nightingale to be gone
When the first rays of the morning come
Save your strength and remember all you had
For when the sun is set, all is gone

Save yourself
And tread on the heels of the wind
And don’t forget
The hunt’s never over until you’re a notch in their belt

Stay away from the horseshoes on the road
For they already lost what they were
If the forest would know what is coming, I’m sure
All it’s leaves would wilt before they come

Save yourself
And tread on the heels of the wind
And don’t forget
The hunt’s never over until you’re a notch in their belt
Track Name: No Direction
I follow rivers in your wide eyes
Though I have never learned how to sail
Don’t fight the rhythm with your weak arms
It’s where you started out, that you can’t go
back

Empty your pockets of the sand rocks
You’ve been collecting for so long
You search reflections in the water
To see what you can find on the other side

This bird is gone
with no direction
Just let it go
To find what you have lost
While by your side

Is this the back end of the rope now
Is it me who’s pulling or being pulled?
In this commotion I have heard before
If nothing ventured, then nothing gained

This bird is gone
With no direction home
This bird is gone with the wind in it’s eyes
Just let it go to find sorrow alone with no weight on it’s arms
Track Name: Rising Lights
I don’t know where you’ve been, I don’t know what you’ve seen, now it’s done
All the colors you felt streaming down through your face seem in vain

But the raven won’t forget what they did in his name
and the dawn will arrive in the fields of your angst
And I will follow, these rising lights

Little screams in yourself and the rivers will take what is left
Bitter taste in the scar that will never feel right to pretend

But the raven won’t forget what they did in his name
and the dawn will arrive in the fields of your angst
And I’ll move forward, with changing times

All you’ll hear from the trees that have never been ruined is a lie
With their roots underground and their branches away from the land

But the raven won’t forget what they did in his name
and the dawn will arrive in the fields of your angst
And I’ll move forward, with changing times
Track Name: The Dark
Don’t hesitate
When the end returns
Don’t be afraid
Of love on it’s dying bed

You be the guide
You be the path
And you’ll always know, where is the dark

See beyond the eyes
Hear the truth in lies
Throw the absolutes
And learn from the misconstrued

You be the guide
You be the path
And you’ll always know, where is the dark
