Track Name: Cold Open Ground
whisper:
weeping over our lives
in darkness, as billows roll,
morning for ourselves
that he might pity us,
hating ourselves
for what we are now.
voice:
All our words fall lifeless,
Broken down and soft,
Like a hawk without wings,
Pale tune without a song.
I recall when our words weren't so cold.

Innocent don't play here
Fields purged with bombs
Pouring fire on children
Will you buy yours another dog?
How can we suffer you any more?
chorus:
Where are our warriors
When all the guns are pointed
At our heads in the name of the law
To lawfully kill for profit?

All that I see are liars and thieves
Making the laws and making the wars.
On the TV they talk about peace
And we obediently pay for it all.

These psychopaths feed on power and greed
We can no longer be fucking around.
The warriors are here, the hour is near,
We'll put them in the cold, open ground.
Track Name: Lumen Naturae
voice:
Hiding light
In dirt and fire
In all the shades of red
And all the hues of white
Your Light -

Your coat
Heavy on my skin
Warm and dark
I find Sun and Earth
In your pocket

The embers of life
glow in my hand
I understand
chorus:
Lumen Naturae
whisper:
make me whole
glowing womb
i know your secret
voice:
All will grow
All will die
You're my hope
chorus:
Lumen Naturae
whisper:
i know your secret
hiding inside
hiding in earth and fire
voice:
Your coat kept me warm
when you were alive
chorus (with voice):
alive
whisper (with voice):
lumen naturae
you are my hope
voice (with whisper):
It's cold without you
and heavy
whisper (with voice):
my everlasting love
my flame
chorus (with voice):
heavy
voice:
I feel you
In all things
I touch and I see
Your form remains
My hand small
in your pocket
whisper (with voice):
light the dark
i see now
my soul glows
light from within
chorus (with voice):
In your pocket
whisper:
i know your secret
hiding inside
hiding in earth and fire
voice:
All will grow
All will die
You're my hope
chorus:
Lumen Naturae
(music)
chorus:
Lumen Naturae
You're my hope
Everlasting light
Make me whole
Lumen Naturae
My soul glows
Uncorrupting flame
I can see
whisper:
i know you're secret
hiding inside
hiding in earth and fire
Track Name: River Blue
voice:
Be there
Be true
New day to open
The past will leave you
bruised.
silent voice (with voice):
resentful
paralyzed
furious
whisper:
i breathe
i know
i love
i trust
i fear
voice:
I am pretty
Though I know what's true
I am ugly
When fear comes into view.
voice & chorus:
With my head above water,
I see your gleaming eyes.
The time of wolf is over.
whisper (with voice):
the reign of wolf is over
voice:
The river's swift and wide.
chorus:
And we flow
voice & chorus:
And we flow
voice:
Be true to you
This time
whisper (with voice):
this time
(music)
voice & chorus:
And We Flow
And We Flow
Be True To You
This Time.
Track Name: Doomsday
whisper:
doomsday, it was wednesday
and wednesday was the end
(repeat)
voice:
Doomsday was Wednesday
Wednesday was the end.
(repeat)
(music)
voice:
Surprising everyone,
Who had planned
Their Thursdays
From dawn to setting Sun.

Who had planted flower seeds
All along the lane,
Who had keenly listened
To the news forecasting rain.

It surprised the Village Mayor
Who had planned to run again.
But, oh well
Wednesday was the end.
chorus:
Doomsday was Wednesday
voice:
When all grief came to a stop!
(music)
voice:
We prayed all day Sunday
For things to turn around.
Shouted to heaven,
Not sure that they heard a sound.
Voices said "It's just beginning,
There's light out there",
Not knowing Wednesday was Doomsday.
voice & chorus:
We marched against wars
And poisoning of the Earth.
We sent out Facebooks
And Tweeted about a birth.
We prayed all day, Sunday
For things to turn around...
Sunday...
Sunday, we prayed all day.
Sunday, we prayed all day.
Sunday, we prayed all day.
voice:
A voice said, "It's only the beginning,
There's light around the bend".
Oblivious of Wednesday
whisper:
for wednesday was the end.
Track Name: Fuxored
voice:
Feeling you & healing you
& stealing you & finding you &
Binding you, reminding you &
Pushing through an endless blue &
Holding true, unfolding you,
Withholding you & living true,
Forgiving you without a clue.
chorus:
So I think we're fucked
voice:
Find the key & answer me &
Make believe that I can see &
I am free & we are free &
Do to me just what you need
& what I need & plant the seed &
Bury me & make it bleed &
Hear my plea, I'm like a tree
chorus:
So I think we're fucked
whisper:
...and being true,
finding you in hiding shadows
of my mind.
voice:
Seeds are robbed an inside job
Our stomachs wrench avoid the stench
Within our mind a twisted kind
Oh please rewind, our feet they bind.
Morality a tragedy, ignore the plea
On loose leaf tea.
Go away, don't waste a day
chorus:
So I think we're fucked
voice:
You have no say - it's made that way
Confined to me, conformity,
It's meant to be but who can see
Politically they do to me?
Forgetting true, regretting you,
upsetting few, I'm letting you,
Creating new, a banking coup -
chorus:
So I think we're fucked
whisper:
of my mind...
with you and without you
in a sea of anonymity -
talking to you only when
my eyes are tightly shut:
feeling you & stealing you &
beating you & finding you &
wanting you & chasing you &
pushing through an endless blue &
holding true & seeing true &
speaking true & living true &
seeking true & giving true &
so i think we're fucked.

playing back the scenes of us
as young and scared as fuck
scared as fuck.
(music)
voice:
Feeling you & healing you
& stealing you & finding you &
Binding you, reminding you &
Pushing through an endless blue &
Holding true, unfolding you,
Withholding you & living true,
Forgiving you without a clue.
chorus:
So I think we're fucked
voice:
Jasper & Carnelian
On a wave the scent came in.
We want to win, a deadly sin.
As they rant the veil is thin.
See the whore & take no more
Confined to me, conformity -
What's meant to be? & who can see?
whisper (with voice):
... of my mind.
with you and without you
on that endless stand of time,
twin flames glow
in an alternate reality.
chorus:
So I think we're fucked
