Track Name: The Sirens Womb & Well (featuring Lynne Piper)
bright lights blinding
darkness embodies long nights spent
fearful seeking soul
souls to try to be
dive down deep ocean dreams
safety comfort i long for sleep
what’s real?
how can i be?

i can’t breathe
follow me, follow me down
i can’t breathe
follow me down cavernous well

connection of the heart that we find
deeply embedded in the truth that we are trying to move through time
it’s not a place even if i find words
how can we sit amongst fallen kings
bones and ships and left pieces of things
i have seen bottom
bottom of that which has been left

i can’t breathe
follow me, follow me down
i can’t breathe
follow me down cavernous well

cavernous, cavernous we swim so late

i can’t breathe
follow me, follow me down
i can’t breathe
follow me down cavernous well

Lyrics by Lynne Piper
Track Name: Unexpected Snow (featuring Charlie Moses)
they came barreling toward my door
your words, your open sores
i asked, “what can i do for you?”
it’s been so long since i saw you last
how can you open your heart so fast?

i didn’t, i didn’t, i didn’t want it to be so clear
it’s cold in here
i didn’t, i didn’t, i didn’t want it to be so clear
it’s cold in here

i will not go out in that storm with you
i will not go
kicking and screaming this dragging so low of you
through unexpected snow

i swept out your belongings
i’ve nothing left of you for you for me
the cold it covered your sores
it numbed your wounds
i think you’ll be better soon

i will not go out in that storm with you
i will not go
kicking and screaming this dragging so low of you
through unexpected snow

Lyrics by Charlie Moses
Track Name: She Comes In Waves II
she’s promised to a man who takes her heart but not her hand
he spends his days in holy books repenting for her sin
“grace is made on sundays”, he says
she comes in waves cursing his name

she comes in waves burning profane

“all the things i want to do i’ve promised not to you”
he spends his nights with filthy screens rejecting what he sees
“grace is saved for mondays”, he says
she comes in waves screaming his name

she comes in waves miles away

Lyrics by Jeremy Wilkins
Track Name: You Said That You Hated Me (featuring Melissa Morissey)
i can it plainer, i can make it worth your rage
i can make it funny, but it can’t be changed
we are all of the sudden raised up at last
go ahead take another breath cause we’re going too fast

no we’re never gonna make it

why are you so helpless?
don’t know what to do
if we were in the wild i could have beaten you
beaten you

no we’re never gonna make it

Lyrics by Melissa Morissey
Track Name: Midnight (featuring Britt White)
he took her up into the canyon
he couldn't watch as she was stumblin
she knelt down to breathe in the cool night air

they went on up into the canyon
she was tough but she was clearly stumblin
as he whispered in the cool night air

what makes you bleed, my love?
what makes you bleed, my love?

little billy and his nanny
locked horns when they out ran me
the rugged path that they were wending
left me short of breath, bent over sweating 
by a tomb with a stone pushed back and graffitied walls

what makes you bleed, my love?
what makes you bleed, my love?

when i awoke i was panting
reaching out for you, you put your hand down
on my shivering arms in the cool night air

i had a smoke to calm my feelings
took a bath and started weeping
from what I saw in the mirror in the cool night air

what makes you bleed, my love?
what makes you bleed, my love?

Lyrics by Britt White
Track Name: In the Shallow (featuring Lynne Piper)
in the shallow we wade though our past future chances
we see threads and roads that stretch throughout our understanding
in the moonlight she scan across vast distances to find us
her song echoes out to each of our many edges

sinking ships, lost sailors
beyond this world do they find each other?
sinking ships, lost sailors
beyond this world do they come together?

in the pondering of possibility surrender or to hold on tightly
in the promise of that future that could be so softly sweet
can we reach that world beyond?
is it available to our own kind?
we are made flesh and bone but can we join their ranks in time?

sinking ships, lost sailors
beyond this world do they find each other?
sinking ships, lost sailors
beyond this world do they come together?

deep strengths and our lost prayers
will we find them buried beneath layers?
and our feeble strengths, our deep hidden truths
will we find them under the water?

and she calls in the basking moonlight of her beauty
and the song is the answer to our prayers and longing
and she calls in the basking moonlight of her beauty
and the song is the answer to our prayers and longing
and we see through new eyes

Lyrics by Lynne Piper
Track Name: Out of the Shallow I (featuring D)
you will never be alone
my house was not a home
you wander though the night
i’ll haunt you

i hear what they say that i did but
you know that i made you
you pay my cost

and i know you got it, got it
all the love you wanted, wanted
everything you’ve got i’ll take away

Lyrics by Jeremy Wilkins
Track Name: Out of the Shallow II (featuring D)
you could have made this so much easier
but you were just a child
you swam inside those deep and black cold caves
looking for a place to hide

you know that you are worn down
you know that’s the last sound
count breath, don’t stop now
you can break out of shallow

you know that you are worn down
you know that’s the last sound
count breath, don’t stop now
you can break out

you heard your poison in that mirror
set your focused eyes and climb

you know that you are worn down
you know that’s the last sound
count breath, don’t stop now
you can break out of shallow

you know that you are worn down
you know that’s the last sound
count breath, don’t stop now
you can break out

Lyrics by Jeremy Wilkins
Track Name: When I Go Deaf
when i go deaf
i won't even mind
yeah, l'll be alright
and i'll be just fine

i'll stay out all night
looking at the sky
i'll still have my sight
yeah, i'll still have my eyes

and we will make love
we won't have to fight
we won't have to speak
and we won't have to lie

and I'll stop writing songs
stop scratching out lines
i won't have to fake
and it won't have to rhyme

when i go deaf

Lyrics by Low
Track Name: The Writer (featuring Britt White)
i love to lead when i don't know where i'm heading
i love the sound of the steel wearing down the breaking ground
of my new bedding

i crave the brake, i crave the wheel
i hold the stopping and turning under my hand and heel
is that even real?

there's a short road
there's a long road
i don't belong to either
can i just be the writer?

i pick the pyre, i douse the tinder
i rouse the flames higher and higher till it's gone
and wonder how it all expired

there's a short road
there's a long road
i don't belong to either
can i just be the writer? 

Lyrics by Britt White
Track Name: A Pause Between (featuring Lynne Piper)
breath and the way it moves across my chest
the weightlessness between the one thing and the next
with one foot in the stream the other preparing to take a step
something compels me to move forward through uncertainty at best

and in the delicate balance we hang
possible outcomes, fear, hope, and sense of bigger things
curiosity drives the ship, it’s light a beacon
something to set our sights on, a promise of deeper meaning

and the pause in the dark connects us with our true hearts
we have all the power that we need
and the song that we hear, the fountain of knowledge is embedded here
we are bringing it back, bringing it back

i think of myself as a tree
roots deep down in the ground
branches reaching up to the stars, the heavens
we are in-between these places
pulled into many different directions
considering the possibility of witnessing time at a slower speed
we are in our breath
we are a pause between

and the songs that we’ve known start to shift, to unravel
journey deeper into the soul
we are still seeking the mysterious unknown
and beyond our little worlds
we can follow the stream, the roads to other realms
finally returning to where we belong
knowing we can choose which path to get on

and the pause in the dark connects us with our true hearts
we have all the power that we need
and the song that we hear, the fountain of knowledge is embedded here
we are bringing it back, bringing it back

and the pause in the dark connects us with our true hearts
we are bringing it back, bringing it back
and the song that we hear, the fountain of knowledge is embedded here
we have all the power that we need

Lyrics by Lynne Piper
Track Name: Casino
after a life in the casino
we know that gambling is a joke
to say i'm not here for the money
is just another word for broke

one room for us
one room for both of us
one room for us
is not available

there's something wrong
there's something wrong
there's something wrong
you don't tell me

there's something wrong
there's something wrong
with me

see the dice roll into nothing
see the dice roll just like me
and when the stars fall off the ceiling
they roll in to the sea

one room for us
one room for both of us
one room for us
is not available

there's something wrong
there's something wrong
there's something wrong
you don't tell me

there's something wrong
there's something wrong
with me

Lyrics by Markus Archer
Track Name: Long Drawn Breath (featuring Lynne Piper)
going toward, going beyond
each day brings another long drawn breath
what about the future?
what about the past?
moving slow but way too fast
and the dust that gathers on old forgotten dreams
that’s what my eyes need to see to wipe the slate clean

Lyrics by Lynne Piper
Track Name: Root Cause Analysis (featuring Melissa Morissey)
being a part of time
being alone to find i’ve been sinking
and i don’t always want to climb
out of this ever changing world
i feel so often left behind

stray into the room
collect minimize and mingle
keep with the message
drink some wine
find some new routine and stay connected
stay connected to being alive

don’t worry about what’s coming
don’t worry about what’s already done
collect yourself and be a part of what’s in this moment
in this moment
in this moment in time

in this moment

Lyrics by Melissa Morissey
