Track Name: Sailed and Sunk
We fell into the Hudson, working our way South
There was the Atlantic, there were endless dreams
We placed the sails and tied the knots
This ship was meant for rocky storms
The sun isn’t always shining, the waves will be sure to break
I was meant for dry land but my heart’s an undertow

I took away the distress signs and followed the sun for a while
I addressed this leaking vessel, replacing every board
It’s the same, it’s not the same, it’s the same, it’s not the same
And the beard I grew was a reflection of time
I was lost on dry land but now I’m found adrift
Track Name: Silence the Crickets
I miss the quiet of winter.
The way it’s just you and the ground and the breath of the earth.
I miss the stillness of spring and the way the air is crisp.
I miss the smell of spring flowers and the shade of the golden afternoons.
There are still some good things about summer, some things no one can ignore.
The breeze before a storm and the excitement in her eyes.
Some people really do come alive in the summer, for the rest of the year they’re dying.
It’s just me and the ants and the dance of the grass in the breeze.
But I still look forward to the fall no matter how much the summer bleeds.
Track Name: Silence the Earth
She lets her hair down slow
Single strands begin to fall
To join the universe in ever lasting motion and bury itself in the dark night sky

The planets align, the moon comes out to shine, the grapes on the vine are ready for wine

Water glides through one palm at a time
As the sun sits high in the afternoon sky
She's face down in the sand as the wind dries our skin

The planets align, the moon comes out to shine, the grapes on the vine are ready for wine

The trees kiss the stars as they dance with the shadows
Birds sleep in their arms as they have none to hold them
There's a shiver in their bark that is cured the morning after

The planets align, the moon comes out to shine, the grapes on the vine are ready for wine
