Track Name: Human Animal
human animal
sly animal
were you to know better?
alive when true

human animal
wild animal
driven like the weather
alive when true

(enter horses)

i wanna run
i won't run

human animal
sly animal
overcome by something bigger
alive when true

human animal
wild animal
on both sides of the trigger
alive when true

(horses)

i wanna run
i won't run

human animal
wild animal
were you to know better?
alive when true
Track Name: Warriors
i will not be made to
scream through my own dress
i'll align my own stars
to make my way through the dark
yes i can see

you who see me broken
will not meet my monsters
alone like i do everyday, all the time
wake or sleeping

we are all that you could not be

now i've seen my fire framed
i can give you my saint
she is born of secrets
under blood, in my heart
where we meet

stretched out on this throne
horsehair, bone, and black stone
pale as ghosts we are
quiet and careful warriors

we are
Track Name: Silent Echo
spinning around the sun again
years to here came and went
how long til we mend?

here in the silent echoing inside
you are free

beasts of burden come like a hurricane
confusing your mind away
how long til we find the way?

here in the silent echoing inside
you are free

though we don't make it out alive
i refuse to be unalive
Track Name: Perfect Storm
i see the tide recede and i see my blood
i'm gonna put back all the things i tried to get rid of
i had to give up all my blood to find my truest flesh
to find my way back to my heart to give me back myself

what directs my body, the head, the heart, the holy
the need of my hands to reach, the instinct of my lungs to breath
what moves my feet on the oiled wood underneath them
to dance toward my wilderness, to dance toward my need

deep in the valley and over every peak
i dance through my wilds with wings on my feet
now is time for rain now is time for stone
a doorway to your past a hurt to call your own

i'm in my wilderness and i'm climbing steep granite walls
i am deep inside my wilderness, i don't know myself at all
i don't know myself at all, if i know myself, i'll fall
i'm a stranger to my own wilderness but i come when she calls

deep in the valley and over every peak
i dance through my wilds with wings on my feet
now is time for rain now is time for stone
a doorway to your past a hurt to call your own

how can i be lost in what i know so well
these woods hold the geography of my cells
red skies in warning a cool fever forms
i know i've always been my own perfect storm
