Track Name: River
Weaving time and space
The river flowing through this place
Joins the highlands to the sea
Weaves what was with what will be

Before this place was ever named
Before this space was ever framed

The town that grew around this place
Just another changing face
But the spirit's always there
Draws a circle around the square

Streets and houses come and go
But the earth will always know

High above the river plain
Circles freely as she flies
On the free wind ever higher

He leaves the house he can't call home
Drives his car across the town
On the bridge the traffic's slow
The river runs its course below

Clicking on the sleeping screen
Thinks of all this place has seen

As she glides through time and space
She sees this ever changing place
Retains the spirit of this place

Bursting through the screen
The man who dreams the mann who's seen
Sings his ghost dance to the free
Track Name: Reason
The wind and the waters command
Winged shadows move over the land
The heat on your skin during long summer days
The trail of your tears at the parting of ways

The ones that we try to protect
The lives that we try to perfect
The north will bring thunder and songs to our mouth
That sing to the memories of ghosts from the south

Stones by the water
Made smooth over years
Edges worn down by the touch of their peers
We are the stones on the cold river bed
Our edges made smooth by the dreams in our head

The storm that our innocence took
The raindrops would turn to a brook
The brook would then flow into streams where we swam
The streams into rivers that burst through the dam

We are the raindrops, we are the flood
We are the seekers of life flesh and blood
We are the dreamers who dreamt since our youth
Til faced with your great inescapable truth
Track Name: Five Songs
Return to earth with five songs to sing
Human islands in a sea of everything
In the darkness hands are held apart
Can't see with your eyes but you can see with your heart

The first song brought on mist and cold
That teased the young and lost the old
The second song brought snow
And it was time to go

Within a time people gathered round
To watch the eagle feather touch the ground
The road man said he knew the way to go
The river coursed its way below

The third song brought a gentle shower
Kindness within shows of power
The fourth song brought a huge rain storm
Thunder clouds and lightning form

The fifth song took away the pain
And made sun shine again

Gather round and hear the five songs talking to you
Find the sun shine on the land like where we used to live
Track Name: Time Flows By
You can only change the world if the world changes you
You can only find the truth if you search for what is true
You can only become if you somehow come to be
You can only free yourself if you let others be free
Time flows by
Time flows by
Time flows by
You can only dance this dance if the music sings to you
You can only hear the music if you're tuned to what is true
You can only see the beauty if you look into the soul
You can only see the part if you're looking for the whole
Time flows by
Time flows by
Time flows by
You can only change the world if the world changes you
You can only find the truth if you search for what is true
You can only become if you somehow come to be
You can only free yourself if you let others be free
Time flows by
Time flows by
Time flows by

Time flows by
Look at all the faces looking blankly through windows
Look at the expressions of loss in their eyes
Look at all their faces go right through their fingers
Track Name: Grandfather
Grandfather's spirit is restless tonight
Silently hoping the end of the fight
Isn't too far away
He stands by the river
That flowed by his birth
His sense of place retains his time on the earth
What do you see here my friend?

Close your eyes
Forest Fire
He who is scared of horses

Concrete stretches to the ends of the land
Sparks of spirit deadened in sand
Your heaven is my hell

Close your eyes
Forest fire
He who is cared of horses

I am the backward prayer man
Storms will try to pull us
I am a wisdom keeper
Lightning in four colours

Black day
Blue Night
Yellow day
White night

The sunrise is painless
But the sunset is quick
Another line is cut on the moon counting stick
Happiness that couldn't last

Close your eyes
Forest fire
He who is scared of horses

Grandfather's spirit
Track Name: Rhyme
Lost in a moment of time
Caught between reason and rhyme
Lying alone at the end of each day
Talking to people with nothing to say

He's numb from the daily routine
Lives a life almost unseen
Connected to no-one but shackled to gold
Rooted to nothing but still growing old

He flicks on the screen
Reveals what he's seen
A million times over
Seen through a dream
Something is calling him somewhere inside
The voice which was silent won't let him hide

Lost in a moment of time
Caught between reason and rhyme
Standing alone as the river flows by
Watching the eagle climb into the sky

He's free from the daily routine
Seeing things he's never seen
Away from the office he breaths the fresh air
Drawing the circle surrounding the square

He thinks of the moments lived in this place
Thinks of the time that has swallowed this space
Senses another there by his side
The voice from inside him won't be denied

We are the raindrops we are the flood
We are the seekers of life flesh and blood
We are the dreamers dreamt since our youth
Til faced with your great inescapable truth

Lost in a moment of time
Caught between reason and rhyme
Lying alone at the end of each day
Talking to people with nothing to say

Lost in a moment of time
Caught between reason and rhyme
Standing alone as the river flows by
Watching the eagle climb into the sky

Wind and the water cast shadows on land
All disappear at the touch of his hand
Track Name: Time Is Running Out
Time is running out and as I see the fingers turning
I can sense the smell of burning as our boats all disappear
There's no time for choosing 'cos the choices that we've taken
Have been stupid and mistaken and left nothing but our fear

Time is running out is running out

Time is running out and as I see this forest burning
I can see that we're not learning from the wisdom of the past
When the old one told us that the source of our pollution
Was what once was their solution but was never meant to last

Time is running out is running out

Time is running out and as the iceberg melts the tears
And the greed dissolves in fears at our shared sad suicide
Change in hope together of the hope that changed tomorrow
If we battle through the sorrow
Then each person must decide

Time is running out is running out
Track Name: Roll Up The World Pt. 2
You've taken every turn
Blood turned into stone
Now looking at the sun
The dancers have begun

He is near
You are here

The little lights from nowhere
Are dimming one by one
Darkness flows around you
The voices have all gone

He is near
You are here

Roll Up The World

Law-makers, fat-takers, chancers and kings
Congressmen, presidents, gather your things
Warriors, worriers, pilots and thieves
The man who is lost and the woman who grieves

Everything under the stars is alive
Women and children are first to arrive
Turn to the sun, remember to breath
Let's roll up the world and see what's underneath

Maybe it will be the old new world
Before the day's release
Let's roll up the world because
My ghost dance is a dance of peace

Wind-talkers, night-walkers, healers and priests
Farmers and soldiers, the birds and the beasts
Peacekeepers. visionaries, leaders of men
Must climb to the top of the mountain again

Everything under the stars is alive
Women and children are first to arrive
Turn to the sun, remember to breath
Let's roll up the world and see what's underneath

Maybe it will be the old new world
Before the day's release
Let's roll up the world because
My ghost dance is a dance of peace

Tear up the newspapers
Turn out the light
I need to make sense of the darkness tonight

Where will we find
Those left behind
Surrounded by light
A new sense of sight

Where will we see
What's meant to be
A future unbound
A new sense of sound

Where will we find
Find the night
Turn out the light
Darkness tonight

I need to make sense of the darkness

Roll Up The World

World full of promises broken and torn
World full of selfishness in which we're born
Man's separations flashed gold by the night
The whole earth becomes one great circle of light

The young ones will ask when this great wisdom bells
The lights in your eyes where the universe dwells
The road man has told us to conquer our fears
The soul has no rainbow if the eye has no tears

No matter which side of the fence that you stand
You're always behind it, your head in your hands
The river is swollen, the waters run deep
You can't wake a man who's pretending to sleep

World full of promises broken and torn
World full of selfishness in which we're born
Man's separations flashed gold by the night
The whole earth becomes one great circle of light

The young ones will ask when this great wisdom bells
The lights in your eyes where the universe dwells
The road man has told us to conquer our fears
The soul has no rainbow if the eye has no tears

No matter which side of the fence that you stand
You're always behind it, your head in your hands
The river is swollen, the waters run deep
You can't wake a man who's pretending to sleep
