Track Name: Fox Owl Crow
There was a fox, there was an owl outside
There was a crow, he had a thorn in his side
I read my book, I looked it up to see
What it could mean, if they were speaking to me

If I go outside into the night
And find my way back into the light
If I could look myself right in the eye
I could remove the thorn from his side, he said
I could remove the thorn from his side

But mister fox was also wounded, it seemed
So badly injured that he fell to his knees
I looked him up, I looked him down to see
But he gave no sign that he recognised me

If I go outside into the night
And find my way back into the light
If I could look myself right in the eye
Could I convince you not to die?
Could I convince you not to die..

The wise old owl, he came and perched near my bed
'Some things in life, oh we can't change them.' he said
I couldn't cry, I tried to hide how I felt
'That will not help, but only hurt you.' he said

You must go outside into the night
And lead the way back into the light
If we could look ourselves right in the eye
We would never have these thorns in our sides
We would never have these thorns in our sides

Fox Owl Crow, I'm learning from you
Fox Owl Crow, I'm learning from you
Fox Owl Crow, I'm learning from Fox Owl Crow
Fox Owl Crow, I'm learning from you.
Track Name: Cloud Song
This is a song for all my friends
Who dwell where flowers end, and lives begin
But you can't see them
But you can feel them

Don't tread so hard on the ground
You might crush what I've found
But if we listen carefully
We can find them when they're sleeping softly

But you can't see them
Can you not see them?

A butterfly just crossed my path
He must know the things to ask
To the wind when hope has faded
When your soul feels so deflated

But you can't see that
Can you not see that

I've been waiting on a cloud for your arrival
I can't see how to get down, without bruising lightly
I've been waiting on a cloud of pure delusion
I'm determined to get down
I won't fall lightly!
Track Name: Wolf
I could settle for less than just a pause
I could dream a dream with many claws
I could wake at night and catch my breath
And still recall your name

But something changed and I woke up
With a clarity I could almost touch
That this fairy tale isn't good enough
And it's me that has to change

There's a wolf in my head
He's feeding me
I can't figure out if he's alive or dead
This wolf in my head
I cannot believe I let him control my dreams

With a gentle touch and guiding hand
I can plant my feet and make a stand
I can gather all the things I'd lost
And start to make amends

But I can't look back and can't look up
I must stay focused and stay in touch
Otherwise I feel it's all too much
But I still want to change

This wolf in my head
He's feeding me
I can't figure out if he's alive or dead
This wolf in my head
I cannot believe
I let him control my dreams

When will I wake in a permanent state
In safety, away from fear
The nature of life, there is no escape
From that which we hold so dear

The wolf he adored me
He nearly destroyed me
To keep me away from that fear
But in truth we must go
To the light, that will show
In the darkness there's nothing to fear

Push, pull, down and over, face your fear
There's no way under
Push, pull, down and over, face your fear
There's no way under
Push, pull, down and over, face your fear
There's no way under
Track Name: Grown
It's been a while since you fell into my arms
I hope you're well
I know there's things hidden beneath
Your blackened eyes, your sharpened teeth

Don't feel so ashamed
Nothing has to change

In my heart I long to speak to you
Of things you deem too deep
Every night before I sleep
I think of you, caught up in the shadows
Of the friends you keep

Which one of us has grown?
Which one of us can show, we're alive and kicking?

Which one of us has grown?
Which one of us can show, we're alive
With something more to life

It's been a while since I yelled at you
I hope you're doing well
I know there's things we both regret
We haven't quite established how to put them
In the past

Which one of us has grown?
Which one of us can show, we're alive and kicking?

Which one of us has grown?
Which one of us can show, we're alive
With something more to life
Track Name: Coral
Beneath your veil
I seek to swim
Maybe in time I'll find my way in
This darkened deep
It's freezing me
There's nothing left but endless sea

If I ran from you I would fail to see the light
Of day or night
Although worlds may crumble and dreams often fall apart
In life we must love it all

Beneath your veil
I long to peek
To see what secrets lie beneath
This dark and deep unending sea
I can't go back if I never leave

If I ran from you I would fail to see the light
Of day or night
Although worlds may crumble and dreams often fall apart
In life we must love it all
Love it all
Love it

I'm not willing to try
For something I'm not sure I believe in
With my heart open wide
I've taken steps to be someone that bit bolder
Oh as I spiral down
Into the depth of you and me when we're together
I feel at peace

Beneath your veil
I long to lie where wishes fall
My heart can't deny
That we may part and lose it all
We can't succeed if we never try
Track Name: Road Trip
I awake, you're still steering
Other cars, disappearing

Awoo, awoo, awoo, awoooo

Not afraid, I've no feeling
Drunk and numb, incoherent

Awoo, awoo, awoo, awoooo

Please just take me back to my home
I'm so far from myself
Please just take me back to my home
I'm so numb

I awake, in a clearing
Take my hands, interfering

Awoo, awoo, awoo, awoooo

Is it wolves that I'm hearing
Sense of self, disappearing

Awoo, awoo, awoo, awoooo

Please just take me back to my home
I'm so far from myself
Please just take me back to my home
I'm so numb

Please just take me back to my home
I'm so far from myself
Please just take me back to my home
I'm so numb
Track Name: Ghosts
I have a voice if you do dare to recall
Four hundred ghosts been hiding
Deep within these walls

I feel them around me
Calling me forth
This nightmare surrounds me
I am lost

Ooooooh
Ooooooh
Ooooooh
Ooooooh

The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts are after me
Oooooooh
The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts are after me
Oooooooh
The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts are after me
Oooooooh
The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts are after me
Oooooooh

I swear, they're not quite there
It seems they were hardly seen

I've reached the point of being
Out of control
Fear no illusion as I bear my soul

I feel them around me
Calling me forth
This nightmare surrounds me
I am lost

Ooooooh
Ooooooh
Ooooooh
Ooooooh

The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts are after me
Oooooooh
The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts are after me
Oooooooh
The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts are after me
Oooooooh
The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts are after me
Oooooooh

I swear, they're not quite there
It seems they were hardly seen
Track Name: Heroes
Would you drink poison
If I gave you gold
We'd fill an ocean
With the lies you've sold

Fear not remembrance
It's all deceit
You'll blend with the others
There's no retreat

Would you choose freedom
If I gave you gold
Your untouched wisdom
Will it not unfold

Fear not remembrance
It's all deceit
You'll blend with the others
There's no retreat
No more
No more heroes
They're afraid to fall
There's no more heroes, darling
Track Name: Wasteland
Why do you say
All these things
When all I've asked for
Are unclipped wings

You're not listening are you?
You can't see the light
All this love surrounds you
But you just want to fight

Where do you go
When you fall down
How can I show you
A softer ground

You're not listening are you?
You can't see the light
All this love surrounds you
But you just want to fight
