Track Name: Crusade
CRUSADE

Cradle's softest Yearning
For a home as Bright as your Heart's Burning
Waking to the

Soul that's Chained to the breaking free of
Showing where our path leads
Splitting of the lightning leaves me
Wishing for the strength to hold these Storms;
I am Stone. I am Iron. I have forged my soul,
We are Rising from the Ashes though.

*Everything is Dawning for this Crusade
The Fabric of the Lies Dissolves in the Flame
Everything is crushed beneath Masquerades
The Storms that wreck you heart are Heavens Range

I watch as Moon does Shudder
Through Urgently Breath taking Radiant Shadows
It's full Glow

I dance to the Dream of Forging
Open Womb striped with city stars
Her gripping heart, Painted Scars, Quaking Force, Shaken Shores
Love is All, Love is All, so release the hunger and Thrall
Thunderous Storm is rising home again.
*
Arching Heavens Billow
Leaving us to Hold these Scattered Rainbows
Waking to the

Toll that's sieved in the Shifting Shoals
Whose flowing makes the paths whole
Cooling of the Lightning leaves me
Riven to the Grace that sires these Norns.
I am River I am Fire, I've earned my soul,
We are merging with the Halcyon Glow.

Everything is dawning for this Night's Raid
The Vortices of Truth Rain down on the Glade
The Garlands of the Day become Night's embrocade
Aurora's bounty made as Fates are Paid

Track Name: Out of Exile (Auditory Canvas & Kyrstyn Pixton)
OUT OF EXILE

these mystic moons
coming through
inverted planes
breaking loose
all of these frames, frames of fire
making prayers with the wires

comfort comes
silence rings
mystery, ancient dreams

see clearly the constellations as they rock back and forth in you
in circles, dancing after the source of their severance from sky
fearless on the courageous wind the soul blossoms it is in you
see clearly the constellations source of their center is from sky

these mystic moons
coming through
inverted planes
breaking loose
all of these frames, frames of fire
making prayers with the wires

comfort comes
silence rings
mystery, ancient dreams
Track Name: Do You Remember
*
DO YOU REMEMBER

do you remember? by the hallows your mind...
the cold cold migrations
that took your heart, and stole the sky?

the falling of the angels
the pulling of the lines
the mysterious landings
can they stay now, just for a time

…sweet awe…

fortunes found in under-breath
a curious deluge
departure is not what it seems
when the winds are dreams
and the rocks don't move

...sweet awe..

do you remember? by the branching of the vines...
the ripe ripe vibrations that bloom your heart, and borne the sky?

the holy weave of angles
the culling of your signs
departure is just what it seems
when the winds are dreams
and the rocks don't move

…sweet awe...

Track Name: Unfathomable Things
*
**
UNFATHOMABLE THINGS

in wordless splendor, our heart's breath is
enrapt in un-fathomable things
wherein tears are sewn like dewey beads
and laughter lollops bubbles in great chain-like dances

there is but the loving release
of invisible embraces

garlands of divine nuance and impenetrable awe
yes indeed silence is but the shadowed and vast home
of purest wonderment and infinite birth
most glowing: most knowing

in wordless splendor, our heart's breath is
enrapt in un-fathomable things

Track Name: Falling Leaves
*
FALLING LEAVES

hearts beating through the night
calm, soft
dusk and firelight
all these falling leaves, golden time

it is the canicula who carries in her belly the most precious gold
she is the vessel which must be broken
the chameleon from chaos wherein all secrets are hidden
the central water: the bride
the chameleon: chaos

all these falling leaves, golden light
i am just a child watching everything unfold
into golden light

the central water wherein all secrets are hidden
to sprout wings the matrix must be open

all these falling leaves, light
…the bride…
...the matrix will be open…

it is the canicula who carries in her belly the most precious gold
she is the vessel which must be broken
the central water: the bride

all these falling leaves, golden time
*
Track Name: Burning Bone (Original Mix)
BURNING BONE

i wanna get you in my skin
churning like the ocean
only then i can awake
and feel myself begin

i wanna fight for my own strength
cracking through the pavement
bones of harmony
and flesh learning to see

(chorus)
my skeleton of stone
my heart of burning bone
my rapturous tone
my aching for home
my dancing on my tomb
my butterfly wings i've sown
my aching for home

if you want me in my whole
release me let me go
only then can i awake
direct my own arrow

i want the freedom to devour
every precious hour
like it is the only reason
for everything i feel in
(chorus)
Track Name: Late Gets Early (Featuring Eve Bradford)
LATE GETS EARLY

(with readings of "Late Gets Early" by Eve Bradford)

now you're here, now you're waiting, show yourself, leave the bridge
the silence… the silence says…

first, a doorway, and before that, a window…
(now you're here) knocking… (now you're waiting) a bridge...
(show yourself) after a long stare… (leave the bridge) after nothing else could happen…
the silence… the silence says…

first, the tongue between the teeth
first, song
and before that: the promise of salt, the sweat of tears
and before that: a mouth of fire
and before that: the call of veins
and before that: time breathing open
and then: a doorway of the air
Track Name: Beads on the Wind
BEADS ON THE WIND

this fascination with the freedom in your hands
and now you call me, you call me, you call me, you call me home
this introduction to the peacefulness of your stance
and now you call me, you call me, you call me, you call me home

no i couldn't be strewn a-way
like beads on the wind, like spiderwebs breaking
at the hand of innocence…

your fascination with Aethers how they collide
well now they're shaking, they're shaking, they're shaking , they're shaking home

i can't be torn between the darkness and the light
because i'm breaking, i'm breaking, i'm breaking, i'm breaking too

no i couldn't be strewn a-way
like beads on the wind, like spiderwebs breaking
at the hand of innocence...

these stars they take the life from you
they bring it to the smallest growing seed
it breathes its breath of fire
and still you see the sky, it bends your knees when all the subtlety arise,
you breathe its breath of fire

no i couldn't be strewn a-way
like beads on the wind, and spiderwebs breaking
at the hand of innocence...
Track Name: To You, my Sleeping Soul
*
TO YOU, MY SLEEPING SOUL

to you my sleeping soul; i am the crumbling of wind and Yes
where the call of bird sweeps through me
eternity's face peeks through like a pinprick
it's the dance of immortal heaven
it's the raging of worlds and arching bosom

sleep! only to wake with the blush of the calling on your skin, sleep...
sleep! only to wake with the blush of the calling of the wind, sleep...

for it is raging through you too, softly like the hearts giving rain
And it is gently pushing though, wildly, to be held and loved again

(chorus)
but this soft spur that aches so fully, a hidden catacomb beneath your skin
alive with dancing ages, alight with the glow of youth and innocence
you are ripe now for the embryo of dawning grows fertile and small in your heart
and it is reaching its wings like spreading veins through your waiting flesh
and now your song is like wine, fire of aether's burning, you're reborn in this

Track Name: Winter's Sanctuary (Auditory Canvas & Kyrstyn Pixton)

WINTER'S SANCTUARY

everything comes softly, comes softly now
the sky is enclosing you, now
there's nothing that can keep you from falling in your self now
so, sweet dreams

stay with me now… do you feel the vines? they're like webs in my mind
gaze in the shroud. can you hold the vines? come with me now. they're like webs in my mind
rest on the bough… come with me now
stay with me now... they're webs in my mind

i want to hear your whisper's whisper, bring you back to earth
i want your hand to guide me, ride to the sun's birth
i want to draw you in my shelter, hold you till the dark runs light
i want to bring you to the sea, and watch the waves roll in
wash them through me, writhe into my skin
i want to be there when the whole of everything runs down

everything comes softly, comes softly now
the sky is enclosing you now
there's nothing that can keep you from falling in your self now
so, sweet dreams

stay with me now… do you feel the vines? gaze in the shroud
they're like webs in my mind. rest on the bough… can you hold the vines?

Track Name: Devouring the Stars
the stars continue to devour our hearts by the light of the moon
if we rush the solace into sleeping
we'll wake up too soon
*so we go down with the sun, it pulls you
it holds your heart in it's palm, so confused
the blood in these veins remembers the embyrs
so try to explain with song

**these feelings hold us like a captive in bright spider's web
if we follow the spindle to Athena and grab hold the thread…
the stars will continue to devour our hearts by the light of the moon
'cause we've rushed our souls out of the sleeping to herald the noon
to herald the noon

we go down with the sun. it pulls you
it holds your heart in it's palm, so refused
the blood in these veins remembers the embyrs
so try to maintain with psalm
**
