Track Name: Nothings There
Bear down, I'm no soul
Wore ragged, wise and old
Saw light, born tonight
They're here, pretty light

Untold, unseen, bare down your soul

Saw light, born tonight
Uncovered branches, sweet and light
Nervous, weak, till my body speaks
Raised on acid, river under my feet

Untold, unseen, run into the body sway
Track Name: Breathing
Theres something that
I can't explain
Pardon me
I wanna know

Why parting with the summer rain
the autumn leaves
drift below

Cold winds in the winter
months pierce my skin
I feel alive

Love is lost in it all the time
years come and pass
I wanna know

Heres something that I can't explain
the rolling hills &
the ebbing tide

Cross dressing
& a love affair
empty nights
walking home alone

Energy is on my mind
the streets feels wrong
will I stay alive
long enough to see
repair, my repair
open up to more

I'm right here
I'm still here
let it in
alone, say

I said it now
a thousand times
spilled my guts
wasting time

All you people
In the garbage can
there I said it
I want to go back home
Track Name: Lighthouse
Lighthouse, lighthouse for my mother
Will we, will we ever understand each other

Sometimes, sometimes I feel like death
Sometimes, I really want to know myself

We both know what time it was
But in this light your eyes seem perfect
I wait for much more

Lie down, lie down next to me
My muse, come on and let me speak

I really want to know
Love me, I'm found again
Track Name: Elysian Fields (The Other Side)
Its the same old song

Underneath the fog
to the other side
inside & out
on the other side

I watch it come
from the other side
the glassy glow
beyond all I know

The ironic skin
holding all we are
from bursting in flames
the dreamy, glassy glow
this song spreads wings
billowing the fire
burning all my hope, and drifting far away

its the same old song

I'm lost in all I know, can't I see the side
where bliss can live & grow, paradise paradise

its the same old song
this life don't mind all my suffering
Track Name: Cosmic Folk Dance
Born to a family, mother, father, daughter, son
I was the last one
Raised on the moonlight, calling out and over head
In morning I'm still here

Cosmic attention, listen how it breathes
Caught in the daylight
Fostered and mothered, cut into a dying tree
I've been tethered

I've been bound, stripped low
