"And I decided to go
Round the world on freedom’s bicycle
By ways illegal
As the travels of wind.
When asked for my address
I give the address of all sidewalks
I chose as permanent residence.
When asked for my papers,
I show them your eyes
And am allowed to pass
For they know that travel in the cities of your eyes,
my dear,
Is the right of all world citizens." - Nizar Qabbani

Track Name: Karyae - Where All The Lost Belong
Do the feet dance to a different dancers song?
Born in another skin, is skin such a mask?
My sun is your sun above the ever changing sky.
My moon is your moon as it ties me to a trial.
To hope for stars to map and show where all the lost belong,
looking for a dance of hope, a dance of all the strong,
to move through gates and doors and locks to reach another song.
Can a heart beat for a different persons soul?
Born of another land, is faith such a mask?
My soil is your soil underneath we dare to tread.
My sea is your sea as it washes all my threads.
To hope for stars to map and show where all the lost belong,
looking for a dance of hope, a dance of all the strong.
To move through gates and doors and locks to reach another song..
My earth is your earth, underneath we dare to tread................
My sun is your sun above the ever changing sky and
My moon is your moon as it ties us to a trial....
to hope for stars to map and show where all the lost belong,
looking for a dance of hope ......
a dance of all the strong......
Track Name: Howling Larsons - Smile In Your Sleep (Hush, Hush)
Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby

Once our valleys were ringing
With sounds of our children singing
But now silence reins till the evening
And houses stand empty and broken

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby

We stood, with heads bowed in prayer
While soldiers laid our cottages bare
The flames filled the clear evening air
And many lay dead in the morning

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby

Where was our fine fearsome mettle,
Our men once so valliant in battle?
They stand, cowed, huddled like cattle
And we're to be shipped o're the ocean

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby

No use in pleading or praying
Gone, gone, all hope of staying
So hush, hush, the anchor's a-weighing
Don't cry in your sleep, my baby

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby
Track Name: Stone Breath - The Blood Red God
Old gods die and new gods rise
But one god's flag always flies.
One god's banner marches on -
By every army it is born.
Worshiped by rich - feared by poor -
The blood red endless god of war.

Many names this god has held.
In every kingdom he has dwelled.
By sword, by ax, bomb and gun,
By rain and snow, cloud and sun;
In every season he brings his storm
The endless blood red god of war.

In every land he's sown his seed.
On every land his victims bleed.
In every season, his scythe does swing
And only misery his reaping brings.
Those who gain and fill their purse
Like the war god bear my curse.

The crow's on the cradle with warning words;
The dead on the field with circling birds.
The rich sit back and gain from war
While battle's burden falls on the poor.
Let us turn and worship no more
The blood red god of endless war.
Track Name: Pylae - Skein
Tumbling through the wild cascade
On swift black wings
A sharp cocked eye discerns afar
Approaching skeins

A steady beat of harnessed hearts
An arrow’s flight
Sailing on the high wide winds
Away from night

And when the water cracks like bone
And day is done
Remember then that steady pulse
Towards the dawn
Track Name: The Hare And The Moon featuring Alaska - Black Shores
Walking out into the gloaming
There is no sense of time or place
The distant lights are all around me
I cross the sand but leave no trace

The shores are black and never ending
The jetsum cast up cannot leave
There are no nets, no pier or harbour
Nothing lost can be retrieved

The breakers foam across the horizon
As figures hunch against the wind
We never meet or come together
We never begin and so we never end

Walking out into the gloaming
Till there is nothing left of home
Each grain of sand a soul departed
A life once lived under each stone
Track Name: Nikos Fokas - Krasin (Красин)
Carry me under your frozen haul

Sail me up to reach the Northern Light

Holy Krasin

guided by moon and stars

take me home before you pull me back
