about

"But there came, from where the sun walks, another voice that was not of death. It came great, with the wind it came. Our hurting heart waited and heard what that voice spoke. That the war not go on, it said. That death wait. That the heart of the true men and women not be, yet, a mirror of pain. This we did. The bitterness was put away in the caves and our pain waited for that voice to shout. The voice spoke strongly. How could we not hear it! Many steps was that voice. Great, the song of its drums. Only the arrogant closed his heart. Without fire, with a name and face, that voice raised again the banner of human dignity. For that voice, we were not animals. Men and women again, we were. From other lands came walking that voice. From far away. From the heart of other lands, from other mountains, from other hopes, sisters to ours. It became strong and great. It is a voice. Relief came to our pain, and the waiting harvested hope. A seed, was that voice, in the collective heart that walks in our step."

Track Name: All in All
I don't owe you anything
stand in line, write down your name
take a number off the wall
take a goddamned number

the water's running down the drain
you've got yours you don't need mine
it's not my job to prop you up
it's not my job to give you time

I don't owe you anything
and I don't need to give my self away
tear pieces off, throw them away
but now I remember

and all in all, I love when beauty consumes me
and all in all, but I won't let you consume me
Track Name: Pressure
so much pressure, holds it together
all this pressure, blown to pieces
back together, tide in tide out
back together, an ocean of stillness

pressure's building, pressure's building
there's so much we don't know, there's so much we don't know
pressure's building, pressure's building
the eye of the needle they'll try to destroy it, the eye of the needle they'll try to destroy it

leaves are changing, sun's unmoving
sun is moving, does it pull us with it?
all this pressure, expanding forever
the mirror reflecting, our constant expanding

pressure's building, pressure's building
there's so much we don't know, there's so much we don't know
pressure's building, pressure's building
the eye of the needle they'll try to destroy it, but they can't destroy it because we're made of it
Track Name: Ring
The iron in their bars, is the iron in your blood
now there are no guards, just open sky above
the iron in your bones, is the iron in the earth
the seeds you have sown, your death's a rebirth

your life's made mockery of bars and jails
you were never broken thus they failed
you never surrendered never changed your ways
now you unite with the all, you have never been enslaved

the letters that you wrote, deep into the night
your words reverberate, you live on in the fight
their shackles and their chains, their numbered uniforms
your strength and your strain, you're shelter from the storm
Track Name: scared
he was walking the lonely highway
he didn't see the beautiful skyway
he sought to live a life of honor
the lack of balance results in horror

his muscles tensen, his life is tension
that big old elephant never gets a mention
so he keeps walking, desperately seeking
doesn't see the beauty under his feet beneath him

he needs a new car, to ride the highway
things if he goes so far things will work out okay
he's fuckin scared so sometimes he's scary
I talk to him but he does not hear me
Track Name: cherries
I just want to get down to bones
breathe deep, suck out the marrow
strip off all the excess
leaves me bare and I'll go
foggy mind, I just want the sun to shine
foggy mind, I just want the sun to shine

breathe into it, breathe into it
this is not who I am, this is not who I am
destroy, build again, destroy, build again
