Track Name: Water I (The Water)
WATER I (THE WATER)

MY FATHER USED TO SAY “MY DARLING, WHAT’S YOUR STRATEGY?
CAUSE YOUR PEOPLE WON’T SURVIVE ALONE ON ALL THAT THEORY
FEED YOUR MIND BUT USE YOUR HEART TO BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE”
SO THIS IS HOW I WALK THE PATH CREATOR MADE FOR ME

WHEN I EAT THE RICE, THEN I CLEAN THE BOWL
IF I SCORCH THE SKY THEN I MEND THE HOLE
IF I SLAY THE HERD, EVERYONE PAYS THE TOLL
BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE TO DRINK THE WATER

I LEFT HOME FOR EDUCATION TO REPLETE AN EAGER MIND
WITH MY WISDOM TO RECOVER AND MY YOUNG WILL TO REFINE
WHAT MY PEOPLE KNEW OF FISHING THEY’D FORGOTTEN OVER TIME
SO I RETURNED HOME TO MY PEOPLE WITH A FISHING LINE

AND WHEN WE EAT THE RICE, WE CLEAN THE BOWL.
IF WE SCORCH THE SKY THEN WE MEND THE HOLE
AND WE’LL CATCH THE WIND
BECAUSE WE CAN’T CLEAN THE COAL
AND WE ALL HAVE TO DRINK THE WATER

100 YEARS AFTER I WAS KILLED BY CALVARY
I JOURNEYED TO THE GREAT WHITE LAND TO SEEK APOLOGY
TOM DASCHEL SAID HE’D ONLY GRANT THE STATE’S REGRETS TO ME
CAUSE APOLOGIZING ONE TIME MIGHT JUST SET THE FLOODGATES FREE

BUT YOU ATE THE RICE NOW YOU CLEAN THE BOWL.
YOU SCORCHED THE SKY
SO YOU MUST MEND THE HOLE
YOU TOOK MY VOICE
RIGHT WITH THE LAND YOU STOLE
BUT WE ALL HAVE TO DRINK THE WATER

YES YOU ATE THE RICE SO YOU CLEAN THE BOWL
YOU SCORCHED THE SKY
SO YOU MUST MEND THE HOLE
YOU SLAYED THE HERD AND STILL WON’T PAY THE TOLL
BUT WE ALL HAVE TO DRINK THE WATER
Track Name: Water II (Walk Upon Water)
TELL ME HAVE YOU HEARD THE PEOPLE SAY
TO MEET THE DAWN YOU MUST SURVIVE THE DAY
EVERYBODY HAS A PART TO PLAY

TIRED, BROKEN AND YOUR MIND IS NUMB
LOST THE BATTLE BUT YOU’RE HOLDING ON
THAT’S THE TIME YOU GOTTA SING THIS SONG

WE WALK UPON THE WATER
THE ONLY WAY WE EVER SURVIVE
WE WALK UPON THE WATER
IT’S HOW WE CHANGE TO STAY ALIVE
NOW THE TEMPERATURE IS RISING
BUT WE’RE NOT IN IT BABY JUST TO GET BY
WE WALK UPON THE WATER
ANYTHING, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

EVEN WHEN YOU THINK YOU STAND ALONE
SOMETHING IN YOU KNOWS THE TIME HAS COME
TO LIVE THE TRUTH OF TIMES LONG GONE

WE WALK UPON THE WATER
THE ONLY WAY WE EVER SURVIVE
WE WALK UPON THE WATER
THE WAY WE CHANGE TO STAY ALIVE
NOW THE TEMPERATURE IS RISING
BUT WE’RE NOT IN IT BABY JUST TO GET BY
WE WALK UPON THE WATER
ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IF YOU

DON’T LET IT BRING YOU DOWN
KEEP IT STEADY AND YOU STAND YOUR GROUND
WE DETERMINE WHAT TOMORROW HOLDS
BUT WE GOTTA LET THE BEST IN US GROW
Track Name: Light (O, Let Your Light Shine Bright)
PEOPLE TELL YOU WHAT THEY WANT, WHAT THEY WANT
AND PEOPLE TELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED, WHAT YOU NEED
AND THE WAY THEY SAY TO YOU WHAT YOU WANT, WHAT THEY NEED
IS SUPPOSED TO SOMEHOW SAY WHO YOU OUGHT TO BE

IF I TOLD YOU WHAT I WANT, WHAT I WANT
O, WOULD YOU RUN AWAY FROM ME, FROM ME?
AND WOULD I LET THAT CHANGE WHAT I SEE, WHAT I SEE
IF YOU RAN AWAY FROM ME?

O, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT FOR A MOMENT
JUST LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT FOR A MOMENT WITH ME
O, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT FOR A MOMENT
IF YOU JUST LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT

I WILL TELL YOU WHAT I WANT, WHAT I WANT
AND I WILL LET YOU SAY WHAT YOU NEED, WHAT YOU NEED
TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY
WOULD YOU TELL ME WHAT YOU NEED?

O, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT FOR A MOMENT
JUST LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT FOR A MOMENT WITH ME
O, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT FOR A MOMENT
IF YOU JUST LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT
Track Name: Jenny
JENNY BROUGHT THE BOTTLE HOME
SHE SAID SHE’D LIKE TO CELEBRATE HER BIRTHDAY
PRETENDING TO FORGET THE PAST
PASSING OUT JUST LIKE SHE DID THAT LAST NIGHT
WHEN THEY TOOK HER KEYS AWAY
SHE’S A GHOST WITHOUT A NAME
BUT EVERYBODY LOVES HER JUST THE SAME

JENNY TOOK THE PAINTING DOWN,
THE ONE WITH BOB AND TUPAC RIDING BAREBACK
RIDING STALLIONS INTO SUNSET
SETTING HOOF AGAINST THE DESERT DUST
RIGHTEOUS WARRIORS MAKING UP FOR WHAT WE LACK
THEY REMIND HER OF THE RAIN
THE WAY SHE WASHES OUT AGAIN AND AGAIN

I’VE HAD IT POINTED OUT TO ME
MORE THAN A FEW TIMES
THAT THERE’S NOT A SINGLE ONE OF US
GETTING OUT OF THIS ALIVE

JENNY TOOK THE LONG WAY HOME
SHE SAID SHE DIDN’T WANT TO SEE HER SISTERS
SEEMS IT TOOK TOO MUCH TO HIDE
THE SECRET SHE’D BEEN SECRETLY WITHHOLDING
WITHOUT A HINT TO ANYONE
YOU SEE SHE’D GONE AND GOT THE GUN
SOON HER WORLDLY TROUBLES WOULD BE DONE

JENNY’D BEEN A QUIET BIRD
THE KIND YOU NEVER THOUGHT TO EVER THINK ABOUT
THINKING SHE COULD GET ALONG
GETTING LOST IN LONGING LIKE A RAGING RIVER WILD
GUESS SHE’D ALWAYS BEEN A RIVER CHILD
LIVING ONLY FOR A DREAM
DREAMING ONLY OF HER VANISHING

YEAH, IT’S BEEN POINTED OUT TO ME
MORE THAN A FEW TIMES
THAT THERE’S NOT A SINGLE ONE OF US
GETTING OUT OF THIS ALIVE
Track Name: Backside
PLEASE DON’T THINK ME CIVILIZED
PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME PATRONIZED
PLEASE DON’T THINK I’LL COMPROMISE
I’M NOT YOUR BABY GIRL

PLEASE DON’T TRY TO ANALYZE ME
YOU CAN’T HELP BUT FANTASIZE
BUT I WON’T BUY YOUR SACK OF LIES
I’M NOT YOUR BABY GIRL

I’M A WOMAN ON THE RUN
I HAVE SO MUCH TO BE DONE
PURPOSE IS MY NUMBER ONE
I’M NOT YOUR BABY GIRL

DON’T TELL ME I’M OUT OF LINE
I CAN’T MEND YOUR BROKEN MIND
BUT WATCH ME BREAK YOUR PARADIGM
I’M NOT YOUR BABY GIRL

YOU CAN’T SEE ME
YOU COULDN’T IF YOU TRIED
YOU’RE LUCK IF YOU CATCH A SHADOW OF MY BACKSIDE
Track Name: Rare Bird
RARE BIRD RARE BIRD COME AS YOU ARE
DON’T YOU PAY US NO MIND
RARE BIRD, RARE BIRD LAND WHERE YOU WILL
BUT DON’T YOU PAY US NO MIND
RARE BIRD, SO RARE YOU MAKE US BELIEVE
WE BECOME FEARFUL AND WE MAKE YOU BLEED

RARE BIRD, OH RARE BIRD SING ALL YOUR SONGS
AND DON’T YOU PAY US NO MIND
RARE BIRD, SWEET RARE BIRD YOU’RE WHERE YOU BELONG

YOU TURN US TOWARD HOPE, WE TURN AND HIDE SO
RARE BIRD, RARE BIRD
FLY AS YOU MIGHT
AND DON’T YOU PAY US NO MIND

RARE BIRD, RARE BIRD I WISH I WERE YOU
BUT DON’T YOU PAY ME NO MIND
RARE BIRD, OH RARE BIRD
I’M ICARUS TOO BUT DON’T YOU PAY ME NO MIND
RARE BIRD, MY SWEET I SOAR AND I BURN
I HUNT, I SCAVENGE, HUNGER AND YEARN
RARE BIRD, OH RARE BIRD
FLY AS YOU MIGHT
AND DON’T YOU PAY ME NO MIND

RARE BIRD, RARE BIRD ALONE IN THE SUN
DON’T YOU PAY US NO MIND
RARE BIRD, RARE BIRD BELONG TO BUT ONE
AND DON’T YOU PAY US NO MIND
RARE BIRD DON’T TELL US YOU’RE LONELY UP THERE
THAT YOUR WINGS BECOME WEARY WE’VE OUR OWN CROSS TO BEAR
RARE BIRD, RARE BIRD
FLY AS YOU MIGHT
AND DON’T YOU PAY US NO MIND
Track Name: Sparrows
SPARROWS
(Words and music by Gina Forsyth)

WISH I COULD FLY LIKE
THE SMALLEST OF SPARROWS
HIGH O’ER THE EARTH
AND FAR FROM THE GROUND
AND ALL I WOULD FEEL THEN
WOULD BE THE WINGS BEATING
TO GRAVITY’S CEILING
I’D NEVER BE BOUND

IN SOME OTHER LIFETIME
I WAS JUST LIKE THEM
HIGH O’ER THE EARTH
FOR ONE JOYOUS DAY
AND WITH MY WINGS OPEN
I DOVE INTO SILENCE
CAUGHT BY THE WILD WINDS
AND CARRIED AWAY

FAR FROM MY WONDERING
FAR FROM MY LONGING
FAR FROM THIS BURDEN
AS I COULD GO
ONE OF THESE MORNINGS
I’LL GO LIKE THE SPARROWS
FREE FROM THE SORROWS
OF THIS WORLD BELOW

NOW I AM HUMAN
AND HEAVIER LADEN
LONGING AND WAITING
TO FLY ONCE AGAIN
FREE FROM THIS BURDEN
FREE FROM THIS HURTING
ONE THING’S FOR CERTAIN
FREE I’LL BE THEN

FREE FROM MY WONDERING
FREE FROM MY LONGING
FREE FROM THIS BURDEN
AS ONWARD I GO
ONE OF THESE MORNINGS
I’LL GO LIKE THE SPARROWS
FREE FROM THE SORROWS
OF THIS WORLD BELOW
