Track Name: Darkness
Out of the darkness in the blackness of night
Flit through the forest following lights
Flutter and flap at the flames that will
Burn our singed wings back to the dust whence we came

In the dark waters, in hurricane gales
The rip tides are pulling, the wind drives our sails
Onto the rocks and the waves that will
Break up our bows
In a watery grave
And we'll rust and we'll drown
and we're lost to decay

Above the darkness in the black holes of space
Wandering stars fallen from grace
Gravity pulls us, we shoot and we
Burn up on entry
One last flash of light
Everything endeth tonight

Drawn into the darkness
The glittering dross
Not all that wander are lost
Track Name: Between Dreams And Memories
I remember when the stars came out that night
Every one was burning bright
I remember candlelight
Burnt into our memory
To keep us alive

I'm waiting for you
I wish that our dreams came true

I remember sitting on the cliff
Watching distant passing ships
The ropes were tied we could not drift
And though we will forget them
They cannot be undone

I'm waiting for you
I wish that our dreams came true

I dreamt we were walking through the woods
Forgotten gardens underfoot
I remember where we stood
Dreams are only memories
That haven't happened yet

I'm waiting for you
I wish that our dreams came true

I remember golden autumn leaves
Falling from the chestnut trees
I dreamt we were weak at the knees
This is just the season
Between dreams and memories

I'm waiting for you
I wish that our dreams came true
Track Name: I'm Scared
I’m scared of failing
I’m scared of trying
I’m scared of what you will think
I’m scared of giving up

I’m scared of sharing
I’m scared of caring
I’m scared of being the worst
I’m scared of things going wrong

I’m scared of living
I’m scared of not trying
I’m scared of it being my fault
I’m scared of not being good

I’m scared of dying
I’m scared of losing you
I’m scared of getting old
I’m scared of being alone

I’m scared of changing
I’m scared of not changing
I’m scared of being someone else
I’m scared of being myself

I’ll try to not care
I won’t try to change you
I’ll try to shake it off
I’m tired of fighting over you
Track Name: All Worked Out
Since the leaves started falling
My roots have become numb
Still the spring is sleeping
Bare limbs in the sun

Since the wind started howling
I’ve been holding on
Is this life that you're living
Really going so wrong?

I had it all worked out
Then we left in pain
Now this empty shell
Is all that remains
So break me
And bring me back again

Now like seeds we are scattered
Blown to the four winds
Talking through fibre
These copper wires are home

Wherever we travel
We’re kissed by the same sun
The same silver moonlight
Embraces every one

I had it all worked out
Then we left in pain
Now this empty shell
Is all that remains
So break me
And bring me back again
Track Name: Queen Bee
Hidden in the trees
In the darkness of the leaves
There is wax, there is pollen, there is gold
And I'm following
The lines of black and gold
Scouting out a place to build a home

When the sun is rising it will burn off the black clouds
With smoke signals they will track us down
Now we are rising and flocking in black clouds
When the hive is swarming they will smoke it out

You're the queen bee
You're the bees knees
If I steal your honey
Please don't sting me

You're the queen bee
You're the bees knees
You can be whatever you wanted to be

Butterflies and moths collide
The birds and the bees fill the skies
You always see through my disguise
When I look into your five eyes

When the sun is rising it will burn off the black clouds
With smoke signals they will track us down
Now we are rising and flocking in black clouds
When the hive is swarming they will smoke it out

You're the queen bee
You're the bees knees
If I steal your honey
Please don't sting me

You're the queen bee
You're the bees knees
You can be whatever you wanted to be

When the flowers have died
Come and hide inside the hive

When the flowers are all gone
We will lose our homes

How ever far I stray
I will never stay away

Wherever I roam
I will always find my way back home
Track Name: River Run Fast
River run fast
River run steep
River run cool
River run deep

Mountain stand tall
Mountain stand strong
Mountain stand firm
Mountain stand long

Cygnus is flying high
Cepheus shining bright
Delphin he leaps tonight
Into the milky light

I was faster
I was stronger
I was harder
I was deeper

River run fast
River run steep
River run cool
River run deep

Mountain stand tall
Mountain stand strong
Mountain stand firm
Mountain stand long

Fire burn bright
Fire burn hot
Fire burn sticks
Fire burn logs

Badger dig deep
Into the hole
Badger my life
Badger my soul

Cygnus is flying high
Cepheus shining bright
Delphin he leaps tonight
Into the milky light

When the stars came out
From behind dark clouds
You would not answer me
Except in my dreams

I was faster
I was stronger
I was harder
I was deeper

We are our own
Let's take it slow
And when we go
Please take me home
