Track Name: Reaching Out
Like some new champion with a handkerchief in hand

I keep the artifacts held tight to me

Though they may change through time

In shades of loving light

On the leafy floor, I still take them out sometimes

Always thinking, “Oh, the things that I would do!”

But Brother, Sister, oh, the frightened one is you

You can give up that feeling that fills your heart

I’m reaching out to be made new
Track Name: The Warmth
I'll stop measuring the time in blurry fantasy
How long it's been now
I won't be buried underground with the rest of it
My walls they are barren now
White-washed and empty

A corporeal spectre
Walking on the wooden floor
Should we have said more?
I was bellowing out in the cold

We want for the Warmth!
Track Name: Some Storms
That is not the desire of my heart
Though I do not know my own life
It is not this dark
You breathe in light greens
Around and in your eyes

And though we sit inside life still goes on around the city

So I sit, yawning with the ghosts of old men with other languages written inside their bones
And you looked sharp
I made it known that it was not okay

And though we sit inside life still goes on
Track Name: Discontent
And I will wait for the day
I will not say your name out loud again
The discontentment
Is not a way
That I have made
Track Name: We Arose
I am not a wolf

I am not the hunter

Though that is the way

That I was made

Going softly now through the caves

Collecting skins and dust

In the darkest place

And in the dark

We arose!

In the dark

We lit up again!

Oh, sun and moon

In the land and in the water

Hunger and then being fulfilled

Are you satisfied?

And in the dark

We arose

And we know not what we do
Track Name: Remember Your Entire Life
If your arms stay filled up
In a circle around space
I still walk here with my fists held up
Wrapped around what I do not say

If there is dust in your hair
There is more of it here
I am full of your waning
It holds my hands
And it says:

"Where are you now?"
Living here in this!
I remember all of it now
How I am here
Track Name: The Swell
You opened up the swell then there it stayed
Thunder shakes us now in the same place
The way it is now nothing goes to waste
Thunder shakes us now in the same place

The cold might come in through the walls again
And will I still be looking for you then?
When dark clouds come the sky is filled with them
What warmth I held has gone away again
Track Name: Rejoicing
Built legs to hold it up
They collapsed under the weight
And we are stong enough
To live right now

What swells, what sudden squalls?
The cloudy self that I lay down
What are you hunting now?
I am rejoicing
Track Name: There Will Be Seasons
I know you are not
You are not another part of me
Come back to me now
I know how it will be as it is meant to

Waiting for my skin to reclaim it
And there will be seasons now
There will be seasons now
