Track Name: Sunrise
i'm falling
Track Name: We Are One
in the warm earth, where the worm makes its home, / it burrows and tunnels through soil and stone, / and when a mishap arises and its body is divided, it laments, / "i was one, i was one!"

we watched on and imagined our own hours grown late, / and turned to scripture to save us from the worm's fate, / and we announced, "our machinations will earn, for us, salvation," / content with what we'll haven't done

we looked upon the robins and echoed their cries / we sought the same affinity they had for the skies / "we'll build our wonders in sevens as we try to near the heavens! / we'll work 'til our last verse is sung"

as those last notes escaped from our lips, / the worm spent its dying breath singing, in harmony, this: / "you all worry and fret so . . . it makes you forget to live, / to see, to care, to be, to share, to love!

and though our bodies aren't whole, our souls are entwined; / left together in vestiges: that's your place and mine / you mustn't endeavor to escape death forever, / for wonder and beauty live on!"

from the blue eggs in the robin's nest, / the hatchlings lay still in their sinlessness, / and when that small flock of birds are cast into the world, / they sing, "oh, we are one! we are one!"
Track Name: Harold
his father was a filmmaker, but now he's dead / he took his own map right off of his head / you don't even know the pain

once, he found the show was but a pretense / he's fond but not in love with his existence / you don't even know the pain
Track Name: Do You Know?
do you know where to find me? / underneath the tree of blushing leaves, / waiting on the stars to set me free

do you know where to find me? / laying on the shore amidst a gentle breeze, / looking out with hope to the sea

can you see what i see? / comfort in a rainfall, a blue sky's possibilities, / and nature's sweet serenity

do you believe what i believe? / the world is full of color and simple beauty, / and all of it is truly artistry

do you know what i want to be? / a singer, a lover, a dreamer, a mother, an angel of peace / do you really know me?
Track Name: Fragile Heart
instantly, the world was breathing / as the light spilled over the land / through its veins, the rivers cleaving / their paths despite earth's lament / and that earth convulsed, its birth unplanned / terra tethered loosely to a fragile heart beset

we awoke to sudden beauty / as the skies dressed themselves in gold, / and the stars began their wooing / while we watched the world unfold / every moon beam etched on canvas forever old / but, the lights were dimming, and our hearts grew ever cold

and the rain, it came upon us like a plague in darkest night / indefinitely, our way was lost in mother's great device / her fragile heart struggling for every beat / every step was endured by weary feet

born of the angels and borne by wind's affair / they gathered, all together, to sing the world's despair, / to witness all that writ in verse undone, / for in darkness, all air and earth are one
Track Name: Skin
return to flight, the clutch is tight / please don't stay when the sadness eats your skin away / the prophet said, "don't be afraid," / the hallway made your eyes speak of the deepest grey

no one cares about your affairs and your misery, / because they've all got their own hollow needs
Track Name: Alpenglow
meet me in the alpenglow / where the smell of dew hangs over the earth / and the mist of morning rises slowly / as the sun flaunts its rebirth / "only the sun can die and rise anew," / you say with a tilt of your head, / "for all i'd like to know of you, / we might as well have just met"

meet me at the top of the world / as the earth comes to life / day reveals valleys unfurled / and the river turns blue with the sky / listen as the perching birds sing, / proclaiming that they're alive / and seeking all that harmony brings / in their intrinsic will to survive

listen to the murmuring breeze / that tells the tales of the land / through the whistling sea and the rustling trees, / it whispers ethereal secrets and plans / watch the clouds rolling by, / weaving through peaks in the distance, / relentless as the passing of time / that validates our existence

as the horizon starts to reclaim the light, / colors emerge and the world heaves a sigh / prismic hues stream brightly / like strokes on a canvas sky / meet me in the alpenglow / when the sun has gone to its bed / there is beauty in this, i know / all good things must come to an end
