Track Name: Beyond The Years
beyond the years the answer lies
beyond where brood the grieving skies

beyond the years the prayer for rest
shall beat no more within thy breast

beyond the years the soul shall find
that endless peace for which it pined

beyond the years...
Track Name: Patiently, We Bloom Again
waiting patiently to bloom
praying ancient prayers to soothe
lying patiently

breaking ground and rising up
in preparation to erupt
hoping spring will come too soon

naked eyes upon the sun
watching water start to run
from its frozen state of mind

setting congregations free
liberated so are we
creatures wake from sleep divine
Track Name: Gettin' Up
the sun has slipped its tether
and galloped down the west
the little bird is sleeping
in the softness of its nest

the cruel wind is rising
with a whistle and a wail
my eyes are seaward straining
for the coming the sail

i heard the bell-buoy
how long ago it seems
and ever still its knelling
crashes in upon my dreams

the stretches of the ocean
are bare and bleak today
my eyes are growing dimmer
is it tears or age or spray
