Track Name: Rewilding
painted in a corner
eyes for brushes
guilt the color

come a little closer…

lashed to leads
run down the beast
leave the carcass empty

I know you
your aroma
you reek of fear
a thousand reflections
never you in the mirror
say it with me
you’ve been waiting
like me to be set free
I owe you more
than just baring my teeth

come to me
come to me

kept separate
by caste, by cage
but in the dark we are the same

cut the leash to free the bastard
turn the collar on the master

I know you
your aroma
you reek of fear
a thousand reflections
never you in the mirror
say it with me
you’ve been waiting
like me to be set free
I owe you more
than just baring my teeth

So, the wolf’s the one you want
hope you got your shots
because the wolf’s the one you got
all fangs, baby, all froth
ain’t no leash, no tether no fence in the ground
can’t hold me down now, here comes the hell hound
the wolf's the one you wrought
better make peace with your god

there hangs a full wolf moon
on a cold clear night
you’ve caught this devil’s eye
and i got an appetite

see cities on fire
degrees climbing higher
all this coinciding
with the more we deny…

...our fragile human side
so weak by fear and by pride
if you hope to survive
baby, say your good-byes
to the safe lies of your old life
Track Name: Return
Where in the darkness have you run?
We’re awaiting your return
Come back home where you belong

The skies many times blackened and blued
Count the days by lines and tubes
Let me tear them all from you

Come back to me

Brother, come in now from the cold
I’ve learned how loose is our hold
on time and life’s mortal folds

When we return again to play
rewrite rules to our old games
set our sights on brighter days

Come back to me

We’ve been drawn from dark to light
lost like moths on new moon nights
stepping in time
through different strides

Once shared lives, now unravelling ties
I was watching stars fall and then rise
I turned and you
you were nowhere in sight

Come back to me

Come back
Track Name: The Anchor
tethered to an anchor
on a rode much too short
with all the world’s treasures aboard
and we’re drifting slowly farther from the shore

the old man takes the helm
his heart hunts but one prize
to keep safe his cargo
whether his ship, whether his soul shall be the price

Cut the line while there’s time
the captain desperately cried
as he stared intothe deep’s dead blue eyes
nary a care for his own life
wheel gripped knuckles white
he steered headlong into night

Hold on!

tempests won’t dare slow
and damn the torpedoes
risking life, limb and ship, risking all
justto bring the child safely home
once again
Track Name: Whisper Me
the cold’s so far from your heart and mind
still, it rips and tears it’s way through you
so fast, will lapses and self is denied
no one knows who’s who

but then in voices strong, we’ll sing along...

whisper me the words I long to hear
sing to me the song,
“there’s nothing to fear”
bathe me in the your truth
cold, hard and clear
answer all my cries
dry my eyes...
of all these tears

the dying light and the silence waiting below
is told to free our souls
til time is nigh and guiding hands decide to let go
we’ll never be whole

but then in voices strong, we’ll sing along…

whisper me the words I long to hear
sing to me the song,
“there’s nothing to fear”
bathe me in the your truth
cold, hard and clear
answer all my cries
dry my eyes...
of all these tears

but then in voices proud, we will sing loud
I have been lost let me be found

how long have I?...
I know that I
have been down too long
