Track Name: Evolution of Waters - with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
first of all let me say | love is a wave | is this what I must learn | if her being I am to earn | |

love is a stream | that comes before what we can see | and then goes on in front of me | moving through the country | | once I hoped I could only be | happy when drenched by the sea | it twisted me, I would not flee | but made my heart change | you present yourself as the sea | and I fear the sea | |

love is a stream | that sometimes flows inside of me | first it's black and the it's green | a merwolfs dream | love is a stream | ending in the sea | you are the sea | you always were | | I'm not sure of it | I'm not sure of love | I'm not sure of me | I'm not sure of me | I hate this fear | I hate fear | I hate the sea | |

love is a stream | that sometimes is inside of me | first it's black and the it's blue | flowing cleanly around you | | the bed was boat and you and me | the room afloat and tossed so violently | you disappeared into the scenery | like huckle's raft I'm freed to be | and as a source and as an end | we are what we have always been | |

love is a stream | a fountain of what we deem | descendant drinking branching stream | you are the sea you always were | love is a stream | it is not what we see | it comes from somewhere else | and it goes to somewhere else |

Track Name: Baby Architect - with J. Walker
all the last time I remember | when the summer was our fool | we were grinding out the winds teeth | and staring out of windows | but now the calender is breathing | finds the unmanned space between us | and while the telephones are sleeping | with the alphabet mix feelings

that's the way the whole thing falls together | why our numbers disagree | baby architect is crawling | up the time before our eyes

february pulls the suns dress | presents to august as a prize | with your frightened hand to guide me | I'll put the rabbit in the headlights

that's the way the whole thing falls together | why our numbers disagree | baby architect is crawling | up the time before our eyes

Track Name: Winter Sleep - with Dawn McCarthy
a place where nighttime lost its nightmare | where darkness lost its bite | black became indigo and mineral blue | soft with sparkling lights

in this winter sleep, the land dreams

from here I'll greet you | and send a smile in a dream | in this land of dark I'll meet you | with all the earth, with everything

in this winter sleep, the land dreams

over miles of quiet earth that lie between | from my home of frost, to your home of rain | the sound of a candle sings | | in this winter sleep, the land dreams

by Dawn McCarthy
Track Name: Kin - with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
my children I have given life and I can take it away | so when you move then know that I will be with you | yes when you wake know that I have risen before you | my loves I rejoice in your every move | it makes death for me such a slow reward

and I'm with you each time you cry | at night alone and wish to die | so death does not come as surprise | and love will void upon your eyes | and I'm with you when from outside | a frightening noise makes you to hide | and then the walls come closing in | and everyone and every friend denies you

my children you're meant to be carrying a part of me | and not to be a mirror of me | and if you go to sleep and are not your own souls | well then I can not be mine

and I'm with you each time you cry | at night alone and wish to die | so death does not come as surprise | and love will void upon your eyes | and I'm with you when from outside | a frightening noise makes you to hide | and then the walls come closing in | and everyone and every friend denies you

today it rains water where water should not be | tomorrow I will burn into you an image of me

my children you should know | I've come to say it's time to go | I've brought a rain to wash away | all you know as life today | the sickly pale they gather in | and gather veil around their chin | and don't you quake and don't you doubt | injustice will be rooted out | and justice too reduced to ash | familiar love and diamond cash | you were created to become | my earthly son and earthly sum | fee, fie, foe and enemy | is friends to none and kin to thee

oh my children welcome home | I didn't mean to leave alone the only things that I would say
