Track Name: Find Your River
Has the day begun?
Waking but half inside the sun
The bombshell has to wait
And as I walk the city wakes

By the river
I lost track
You lose your way
And find it back
Find your river
Find your track
You lose you way
And then you find it back again

So you’re sitting by the bay
Watching a birdman fall this way
When your wings are home made
You tumble into a state of grace

By the river, I found my track
You lose your way
And find it back
Find your river
Find your track
You lose you way
And then you find it back again
You find it back

And now we're across the bridge
London bright
Glitter like a snake of sun
That's weaving through the clouds that roll by
You arrive
But there’s just a door that opens
To a journey on the other side

You lose your way
You find your way
You lose your way
Until you get it back
You'll get it back
You lose your way
Until you find it back again

Find Your Track
Lose your way
And find it back

Find Your River
Find Your Track
Lose your way
Until you find it back again
Track Name: End of the World
And so I called the storm
On route from Cape Horn
I built the green towers of ice
And the shortest of nights

I’m lost in the deep white south
Nothing can make me turn around

No it’s not the end of the world
But all the same, salt stings
Not going to fall off the edge
I think I heard an albatross sing

My ship creaks like bones
Ice cracks and wind moans
There’s no one else around
And no sign of solid ground

The night is as alive
As everyone who’s ever died

No it’s not the end of the world
But all the same, salt stings
Not going to fall off the edge
I think I heard an albatross sing

Pull the sails down
Turn the ship around

No it’s not the end of the world
But all the same, salt stings
Not going to fall off the edge
I think I heard an albatross sing

No it’s not the end of the world
But all the same, salt stings
Not going to fall off the edge
I think I heard an albatross sing
Track Name: Sweet Sweet Sand
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet sand
Burns my feet
Slips through my hands
All that we have
All that we’ve found
Kiss joy as it flies
While we’re on the ground

Sweet, sweet rocks
Teach me to be soft
Burn bright sun
Won’t you show me the frost?
The pelican’s dive
For all the fish that leap
Bitter salt won’t you teach me the sweet

Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet waves
Wash all my troubles away
Bring them back
Crashing to shore
As high as they rise
They'll always fall

Sweet, sweet rocks
Teach me to be soft
Burn bright sun
Won’t you show me the frost?
The pelican’s dive
For all the fish that leap
Bitter salt won’t you teach me the sweet
Track Name: Tumble
I forgot my disguise
Had to look you right in the eyes
Under a snow blanket sky
I won't cover my tracks so follow my steps tonight
I won't cover my tracks so follow my steps tonight

And now I'm drunk with snow
Still falling far below
Through all of the brightness and light
All messy and unplanned
Still find my feet and land
Stand tall
Knock at your door
And in a state of grace
It takes it's place
And now I'm spilling all my words before they're due
Tumble into you
I'm falling through
And now, I'm tumbling through your day.....

Tumbling and falling into you....
Spilling all my words before they're due....
