Track Name: Shake the devil
Knotted like a string
Wound up like a spring
Trying to shake the devil down

It’s a web you weave
That sadness cannot leave
Trying to shake the devil down
And put him back down underground

Half light burn away
To a brand new day
Trying to shake the devil down

A buzz is for the bees
The breeze is for the trees
Trying to shake the devil down
See he belong down underground

I trade ghosts for the lullaby
I see salvation in your eye
Shape shift me, walk with me, stay a while
Trying to shake the devil down
And put him back down underground

I wonder are you there
Now Spring is in the air
Trying to shake the devil down

Ah red young robin breast
Gotta do our very best
Trying to shake the devil down
And put him back down underground

I trade ghosts for the lullaby
I see salvation in your eye
Hold me close and let me sleep
Into your arms my soul to keep

Shape shift me, walk with me, stay a while
Trying to shake the devil down
Shape shift me, walk with me, stay a while
Trying to shake the devil down
Trying to shake the devil down
Track Name: One of the same
One goodbye two you cry
To soak your aching bones
Downtown spacing around the city’s lights
You see red cause you never said
All that was on your mind
But next time you’ll realise
Keep some of the find
There’s crazy racing in your blood
You’re gonna get on with it now
Like you know you should

I said baby we’re all one and the same
Together in joy, together in pain
I said baby we’re all one of the same
Together in joy, together in pain

Is it so all you know
Comes from where you’ve been
It’s a ride most of the time
Through thick and thin
Who’s proud, really proud
With all they’ve done
We’ll keep trying to make it right
Before the day is done
Oh no you’re not out there on your own
Because nobody’s got it stitched, or got it all sewn

I said baby we’re all one of the same
Together in joy, together in pain
Track Name: Trailing the true star
I for one have got eyes for you
All the promise of January and warmth of June
I’d been down
Down with the crows below
You came in the night, whispering of white
And God knows, God only knows

I’m sailing not failing
I’m trailing the true star tonight
High up on a crescent moon
Your name is spoken, a dream is woven.

Trailing the true star tonight
Trailing the true star
Trailing the true star tonight

You’re one of loneliness’s favourite things
Giver of great grace and joy
The first blossom of Spring

I’d been down
Down with the crows below
You took me by the hand, to make me a better man
And God knows, God only knows

I’m sailing not failing
I’m trailing the true star tonight
So high up on a crescent moon
Your name is spoken, the dream is woven.

Trailing the true star tonight
Trailing the true star
Trailing the true star tonight

I kissed the morning sun
I pray our lives will be happy and long
I’m looking down, down at the crows below
I’m not gonna fall in, cause I know what that bring
And God knows, God only knows

I’m sailing not failing
Trailing the true star tonight
You’re so high up on a crescent moon
Your name is spoken, a dream is woven

Trailing the true star tonight
Trailing the true star
Track Name: Get to the ocean
Might be that a storm is coming down
A fingerprint could bring the whole things down
Baby get it to the ocean

The coast is clear and I’m alone
There’s a sheepskin drum being played with a collarbone
Baby get it to the ocean

Back up man I think she’s gonna blow
Heart banging out rhythms that the mind don’t know
Baby get it to the ocean
We’ll sail for the spark
Night blind is fun when you come alive after dark

So tired of walking with a ball and chain
Brunettes just about to burst into flames
Baby get it to the ocean

You say you’re going out of town
There’s a flu going round
I’m gonna say im coming round
Baby get it to the ocean

Now that there’s a strong breeze blowing
I’ve cut the line, the crystal ball is broken
Baby get it to the ocean
We’ll sail for the spark
Night blind is fun when you come alive after dark

I read your note in the rain
What held me when I went insane
I read your note in the rain
That you’re never coming back again here again
I know love don’t grow on trees
Love don’t grow on trees
Track Name: Home it has flown
Up the dawn it comes rising
East in the arms of loved ones
Watch as the light to the west run
Home it has flown

Pinched the violet clover
Sweet taste in the cool rain
Silence flown with the lone crane
Home it has flown

Wise and unfallen stars
Colour your mind
Wise and unfallen stars
Would never leave you behind

Time so fast blazing
Trails from day into nightshade
What of the castles our hands made
Home it has flown

When the iris hits the grave
Memories deep underground now
Home the soul has flown
Home it has flown

The wise and unfallen stars
Colour your mind
Wise and unfallen stars
Would never leave you behind

Up the dawn it comes rising
East in the arms of loved ones
Watch as the light to the west runs
Home it has flown
Home it has flown
Track Name: Propellor
Free fall and slide
Away to the other side
Spiral spiral down the hole
To the naked things that shape the soul
Receiver possessed lunatic repressed
Wild as hares lasso us in
We’re all a little tapped
Just thicker skinned
Old propeller turning things around

Embracing the strange
Come don’t play games
Fluttering fluttering
Rush through you
Flap of the wing
And the bolt of the blue
No meat on the bone
We’re all together alone
The buckle of youth
That drinks the day
Soaks it in and stores it away
Old propeller turning things around

When the teeth of the clock
Has time stop dead at the door
It won’t stop to knock
Nor follow us around the bend anymore

So we free fall and slide
Away to the other side
Spiral spiral down the hole
To the naked things that shapes the soul
Receiver possessed lunatic repressed
Wild as hares lasso us in
We’re all a little tapped
Just thicker skinned
Old propeller turning things around
Track Name: Colour me colourful
Colour me colourful me beautiful
For all I am not and yet to be
Lady Madonna I am so blind
Raise me up that I might see

Colour me colourful me beautiful
Asleep in blue awake in gold
Catch a ride on a chariot wild
To a place that keeps me from the cold

When you know you’re not alone
The stronger you become do you know
We learn to slay darkness down
And the stronger we become, stronger we become

Colour me colourful me beautiful
I see the bird above the flame
The caterpillar to the butterfly
Like hardened soil before the rain

Colour me colourful me beautiful
A great big star lit up your eye
I saw your dance your wonderful dance
And you filled my heart with so much joy

When you know you’re not alone
The stronger you become, do you know
We learn to slay darkness down
And the stronger we become, stronger we become

Colour me colourful me beautiful
Colour me colourful me beautiful
Track Name: Ways to the Sun
Children stumble ‘round drunk on chocolate candy
They got bright brown eyes and pitch black matted hair
Under the eyes of a golden stare

Oh so many different ways to the sun

In this place of beauty
That makes little of troubles and woes
Medicine sound soothe the sacred soul
Under the eye of a singing bowl

Oh so many different ways to the sun

Fish silver from the blue
Your tear put out my fire
The prayer is old and the mouth is new
Like that which guards the flower is the briar

Oh so many different ways to the sun
Oh so many different ways to the sun

In a soft and simple silence
Thoughts they slipped away
For a second a glimpse of truth made it’s way home
Under the eye of the bird born fully grown

Oh so many different ways to the sun

Fish silver from the blue
Your tear put out my fire
The prayer is old and the mouth is new
Like that which guards the flower is the briar

Oh so many different ways to the sun
So many different ways to the sun
Track Name: Cat gut and wind
A break in the waves
A break in my lips that your name came through
Slap the tide lapping
Your eyes are entrapping my heart to you

I know you’ll be gone by morning light
It is what it is
I won’t try to fight it my love
My love

A privileged boy got no reason to cry
Hold your head up high
Better to have loved and so on you know how that story goes

Time doesn’t steal, it hangs in the air
It follows us ‘round and it has not a care for my love
My love

A wonderful night what a wonderful kind of anywhere
I’m out of my shell and I’m hiding away but I couldn’t care

With catgut and wind I’m singing your tune
With the silver wheel it’s autumns moon my love
My love

Yeah with catgut and wind I’m singing your tune
With the silver wheel it’s autumns moon my love
My love
My love
Track Name: Endless day
Erupting shoulders
Great mountainous wings
The good shepherd knows
A lot a little love brings
Both King and mouse in me, we bow to love
It all begun in you above

Father
Holy Mother golden sun
You my Father
Holy Mother golden sun

The rock says listen
To all that you know
From these desert sands to singing forest grove
All that rest in me
Rise above
Come to know
Only love

Father
Holy Mother golden sun
You my Father
Holy Mother golden sun
We bow to love

Got no more time for vulgar word
Just want to know the way of the bird
Been let astray
I’ll find my way
Back to land
Into your hand

Father
Holy Mother golden sun
You my Father
Holy Mother golden sun

You are the way the endless day
You are the way the endless day
Track Name: Burdett ballad
Restless heart trace singing stream
Dark of night find lucid dream
Tower block kiss pink cherry wild
Bravery lead the brand new child
Each new sun the soul greets alone
Silence swells beyond flesh and bone
All we fail to say and realise
Each freedom born bears no disguise

And what have we lost
What have we become
What have we lost
Who will we be when our race is run

Meadow gold born to sun and rain
Seasons change but the goal remains the same
One last dance and chance for the heart to be
The light of man and not the root of greed
Gentle ways that ask of nothing in return
Just to pray and only hope to learn
Amazing grace and space in place of time
A mother’s love is the bell with the sweetest chime

And what have we lost
Ya what have we become
What have we lost
And who will we be when our race is run

Restless heart trance singing stream
Dark of night find lucid dream
Tower block kiss pink cherry wild
Bravery lead the brand new child
Track Name: Don't be afraid
In these modern days
A troubled mind is all the rage
Oh please when you fall low
Know that I will hear you
Know that I won’t judge you

I am by your side
All of the times
That you can’t hide
Only too well I know the shade
Come don’t be afraid

When the cat has got your tongue
And the funny man is feeling strong
He’s making a big bang
In your ear drum
Hear my voice hum

I am by your side
All of the times
That you can’t hide
Only too well I know the shade
So come don’t be afraid

I am by your side
All of the times
That you can’t hide
Only too well I know the shade
So come don’t be afraid

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
Come don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
