Track Name: Shoresong
you cast off from the shore
a prayer locked in your throat, you're swimming now
from shards of dying land
the glass casket of the bombed out sand

you listen for the ships passing by
and hope your voice was honest when it cried for them
their sails reaching heaven, and you saw them moving
as you washed out in the tide

you drift into the blue
legs against the sleep, quit kicking now
the sky is like a mocking mirror wave
the captain steers his course beyond your grave
Track Name: Island
nothing left but the sea
and the island that used to be me
the silence of a waking sleep
is all that's left for me to keep
i feel the distance from the star
shining hard on the canyon of my heart
i wonder where the angels are
i bet it's far, far away

nothing left here to see
things that tried to love you gotta leave
sadness is a waking sleep
but statues and stones never weep
you remain like a star
turning from the canyon of my heart
i often wonder where you are
i bet it's far, far away
