Track Name: Constellation
Life on a loom, woven thick woven cool
Colors stream through the spool moving down
Deep into dark, where the rest of my heart
Waits in silence, waits in patience, for your time

I know a song that my world has known
Since I was just a babe in womb
I don't belong in the lotus throng
who forgot their own names and they died too soon

You're like a winter constellation, so cold
Such a clarity of something so old
I know you
You left me breadcrumbs on the table I set
You are the feast
and I'll find you yet

Life on a loom, woven thick and cool
I see it all and I'm overwhelmed
At what there was before
and what there is to be
When all I need to know
Is how to rest and be
In my time
In your time
In this time
Track Name: Not The Foe
The crow calls a low waltz
and your heart fails to know its song
You're locked up in a warm home
You are yet to know a colder love

The fallow fields are freezing
See my cold breath - it is moving
Seven years you break your back, no fear of lack, but now you know
Winter can take it all

Come on our of your house
I'm not the foe you think you know
It's in the gloaming I arrive and I'm right by your side
and I'll sing on the night

Take your sleep - a lover's portion
Let me wrap you up in snow
Though it's dark this is my season
Some things are not for you to know

The peace that's found within my silence
Is a deeper force that will reckon with silence
It's in the cold my love resides
and it's a hard one to learn
but there a secret fire burns
Track Name: War
They say we know who we are from our wars and our rumours of wars
Tide after tide over years of bloody shores
Blame settles souls and we find our scapegoats
War
Blue coats, red coats

From one blood we are born

We are light and breath and bone
Of this world and one to come
we are sky and we are stone
let go and get on

I dreamed I laid my anger on you bare
Fury of my years on fire without care
No control just fear and remorse
War takes its own course

They say we know who we are from our wars and our rumours of wars
Tide after tide over years of bloody shores
We can find ourselves in those who hate us
But war never made us
Track Name: Death
We don't know how to stay in the work of decay
and it hovers over me
I'm carrying a tomb
A sleeping dormant womb
and invitation inward

Oh death

We don't know how to stay in the work of decay
and it hovers over me
I'm carrying a tomb
A sleeping dormant womb
and invitation inward

And the shadowlands are costly
filled with the lonely
and it's oh so holy
There's a truth that I might miss
If i stay in life's first kiss
I can let it go now

I descend to ascend
I let go
Track Name: Bloodline
I want to stay in the sway of your barren land
I want to hide in the palm of your cold hand
But you are wild and stricken with grief
yes you are wild, but you'll always be home to me

My life is your life
I'm tied to you like a bloodline

I'm at a loss when I cross your waters
Every single time I come undone
Look what you've done to me

I see your dark wide open sea
and it hallows the need in me
A turning tide where your voice sounds like mine
You are such a scene
Track Name: Particle
Find me out in the wood
Darkling at the setting of the sun
limbs grow like shadows of your mood
Come and lay your head down

Find me out in the sea
Caverns old and deep
Let this deafening silence wash you clean
Let yourself feel small so you can breathe

We are lovers
We are just dust
We are lovers

Find me in the inbetween
Haunting the shadow and the sheen
You must walk these liminal halls
Find your way to the center of it all
Tell me darling, do you feel small?

We are lovers
We are just dust
We are lovers
We cosmos

The space between the darkest star and the caverns deep at the core of the earth
The space between my lungs and my ribs
The space between you and I as we kiss
The space between the robin's breast and the morning song
It's where we belong
It all belongs
Track Name: Haar
You walk on up to me like a ghost
I've been rowing, you see, since I left the coast
And I can barely see you behind the haar
Don't know if you're ten feet or twenty far

Get in my boat now

You walk on up to me like a ghost
I've been rowing, you see, since I left the coast
And I can barely see you behind the haar
Don't know if you're ten feet or twenty far

I need my landmark
