Track Name: Into The Darkened Sunworld (featuring Chloe Warren)
INTO THE DARKENED SUNWORLD

Stars scatter like fire seeds
Hooter calling in the black woods
I am breathing in the darkness
My rings ache
Roots in the alldark grow

Throw me in the fire, and watch me as I burn

Stars scatter like dead seeds
over the darkened sunworld
I am breathing in the darkness
My rings ache
Roots in the alldark grow

Throw me in the fire, and watch me as I burn

Smokesnakes with smutflies climb high
into the darkened sunworld

Throw me in the fire, and watch me as I burn
Track Name: Ice
ICE

Breathe in, seedfriend,
to one old and ringwise;
for the ice do come, and the ice do go
for the ice do come, and the ice do go
and the ice be seedfoe
the ice be blossomblister

Winter’s a cold hearted friend who takes more than she gives
Well I’m no hunter gatherer, so how then will you live?
When it’s oh so cold out here,
Oh so cold out here…

And I am my treehood
as my livings tremble to the branchbend
It’s time to make my amends

I am Heartwood and I’m afraid
Track Name: Kinrade
KINRADE

Hurtling backwards, hungover, I travel on trains
Re-tracing your pace in an alleyway air raid
Growing pains
Partially painted green cracked plastic
Drainage climbing frames
And the fields are full of you, and the trees are full of you

I would follow you into the Mountain, rocky and tumultuous
I can't pretend it wasn't slightly messing up the both of us
Especially me

Coach trips to futile kettles of fish, I wandered through wars
Studio ceilings squint up ladders, sellotape games on floors
A leg long hedgehog the head and the mouth holding stories were yours
And the rooms are full of you, and the rooms are full of you
Track Name: The Only Words
THE ONLY WORDS

I’ve been up & down this house, these walls,
Have heard the stories, the triumphs, the falls
And these stairs may creak, but the silence they seek
Is the seemingly only word they can speak,

But the only words, the only words I know
Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown

I’ve been down and out, so high, so low
I’ve been terrified when I’ve looked at you
In the stillness I find a peace of mind
But I will never give you a piece of mine

But the only words, the only words I know
Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown

I’ve been waiting by the window, waiting by the phone
I’ve been etching an escape plan for sixty seconds on my own
And your face may be smiling, but I know what you’re hiding
There’s no way you are leaving, you're waiting for me to go

But the only words, the only words I know
Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown

The only voice I can replicate
Is my own and the reasons to sleep create
But you can’t take my dreams, no you can’t read my thoughts
And you won’t take my freedom, of this I am sure

But the only words, the only words I know
Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown
Track Name: Sun Sets Fire
SUN SETS FIRE

Ruby red wine illuminates the autumn sky
I watch the leaves tumble from the trees singing the same lullaby
As the sun sets fire to the mountain high,
I know I’m falling, falling, falling - falling for the fall

The winter is close, it’s dark, but still I have light,
I’m like the leaves, I will let go, I’ll let this season take flight,
And as the sun sets fire to the mountain high,
I know I’m falling, falling, falling - falling for the fall

Nothing stays the same, prepare to change, to live or to die,
The naked branches show that everything will fade with time,
And as the sun sets fire to the mountain high,
I know I’m falling, falling, falling - falling for the fall
Track Name: Traxx (For The River)
TRAXX (FOR THE RIVER)

“Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled,
I am not on the map; yesterday is no tomorrow
And I won’t look back, & I won’t let go when this ocean overflows…”
She knows she will dry, as she stands in the rain
& stares up at the clouds, so when the storm starts again
She knows she will dry, as she stands with no shame
& cares not for the crowds, who ridicule her name
She knows she will dry, so when the heavens open wide
She knows it’s her time, she will know to be alive,
And she said, “I’m…

Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled,
I am not on the map; yesterday is no tomorrow
So I won’t look back, & I won’t let go when this ocean overflows…
I’m searching for something worth seeking
Instead of giving in to what’s given
I regret it appears that I have lost my head
The emerald rivers have swallowed my bed
And now I… can’t lie… any more…”

So when the truth comes out,
When the whispers of the waves begin to shout,
She said, “I know I’ll find my way”
She said, “I know I’ll find my way, but I’m…

Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled…

I know I will dry, so when the heavens open wide
I know it’s my time, I will know to be alive”
Track Name: Rootless
ROOTLESS

We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy
Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy

This rootless will be in the redstone nest
No taint of his sorrow on the breeze.
When the sun comes I will grow him,
But now he must rest (but now he must rest)

We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy
Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy

This rootless will be in my leafen.
He will be in my twigs and branch.
His mossboll songs will wave in the wind;
His breath hum in my blossomsongs (his breath hum in my blossomsongs)

We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy
Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy

When the sky opens wide, Oh, that’s when I come alive
The rains come from no cloud, but straight from the snakemouth.
Look at how my leafen dance, madness drowning in romance,
Watching as I clap my hands, quench fever,
So let my love fill your lungs, I long to listen to your songs,
I’ll be swaying, simply singing rainjoy.
Track Name: Fabric
FABRIC

She will carry you down quicksand like the earth is her hand
She will contort the land like she fought all your plans
She has pocketed your Paris in her rain-mac and
She has promised you particles to breathe in but
All she wants is your undivided attention,
So pay attention ‘cause she’s insisting that
Everything is so much more beautiful her way

She will domino disasters just to practice her powers
She will dominate decisions & make you see your powerlessness
She manipulates your mindset with motions of magic and
She monopolizes the fabric,
She’s everything, she’s everywhere
It’s always about her,
But all she wants is your undivided attention
So pay attention ‘cause she’s insisting that
Everything is so much more beautiful her way

She, she, she,
All about she, she, she
She be the beginning, she be the end
If you listen, she is speaking,
She is speaking, if you’re listening
Now
