Track Name: Troubled Mind
The time has come oh lord to choose.
You see I’ve tried for all your ways but I’m through.
For years you served what I thought was true.
But time revealed that the slave served you.

Oh I was lost but now know why.
Cause I was only in my mind.

All the lies and foolish ways
as child I loved to play those games
so I, I haven’t come to you to deny.
I haven’t come to you to deny.

I know that what was once the ways of my mind
had best be on their way, goodbye.
And now I will get on with my life.
Now I will get on with my life.

Oh I was lost but now know why.
Cause I was only in my mind.
Track Name: Revelry
Let me show you what I mean she said and grabbed my hand.
Two walking along in harmony then off we ran.
Like a petal in the falling rain I held to her stem.
And I forgot about my sanity on this fleeting whim.

You were dancing in the falling leaves.
Through their piles under autumn trees.
The feeling as you circled me.

Oh was revelry, Oh the revelry.

Blending morning with the evening like the end of time.
Never knowing what tomorrow brings so we drank our wine.
You were shining like an offering God you’re so divine.
There’s a color in your majesty I just can’t define.

You were dancing in the falling leaves.
Through their piles under autumn trees.
The feeling as you circled me.

Oh was revelry, Oh the revelry.
Oh the revelry, Oh the revelry.
Track Name: In The Dark
What’s this light in our lives?
Tricky fascination, concentration on fire.

In the morning when I rise,
and I fall into my ways.
Like an ocean wave I ride,
and forget from where I strayed.

There’s something in the way that it is
fundamentally full of life.
Something that was meant to be lived,
naturally full of surprise.
We don’t have to make it harder than this my friend.
We don’t have to make it harder than this my friend.

There’s really nothing in the way, struggling still.
What makes it feel so hard has always been our will.

But the worries creep in slow.
Want to set my soul at ease.
But I’m pulled by undertoe.
So my doubt is all I see.

There’s something in the way that it is
fundamentally full of life.
Something that was meant to be lived,
naturally full of surprise.
We don’t have to make it harder than this my friend.
We don’t have to make it harder than this my friend.

Is not the cup that holds your wine
the cup the potter burns?
Is not the lute that soothes
hollowed by your knives?
The deeper that the sorrow carves,
the more the joy can fill.
What makes it feel so hard has always been our will.

Only in the dark do we find light.
Only in our depths do we find height.
Track Name: Karma
Old man can you tell me why
I don’t find, no rhyme or reason?
Some live high enslaving brothers.
When will they have retribution?

Wait. He says patience.
Wait. He says patience.

If in this life accrued some debt you’ve not paid yet,
well you better believe.
It will come back again for you to mend.
Cause’ as you sow shall you reap.

All our perpetuations
will ensure these situations.
And we’ll endure all our creations.
So think before you give birth to fate.

Something we create.
Something we create.

If in this life accrued some debt you’ve not paid yet,
well you better believe.
It will come back again for you to mend.
Cause’ as you sow shall you reap.
Track Name: Moonshine
Wasted all this time.
And all we seem to know.
Is there's a better way than this we pray.
That there's a better way than this we pray.

We may be blind in the moonshine.
On the edge of all the rushing by.
We're taking our time
not to spill the wine.
All that lies before will fall behind.

Because the burn causes song
and laughing freedom from our minds.
Some other-worldly ride.
