Track Name: The Path
We can only follow The Path
Because when we stray from The Path
This is how we follow The Path

We can only be ourselves
Because when we change ourselves
This is how we become ourselves

Muslims, Buddhists, Christians and Jews

Muslims, Buddhists, Christians and Jews
Singing your rites or singing the blues

Muslims, Buddhists, Christians and Jews
Singing your prayers or singing the blues

This is how we follow the Path...
Track Name: Ø
The Earth, the sky, Heaven and I
Equal zero
The dirt, the sea, the leaf, the tree
Equal zero
The air, the breath, the birth. the death
Equal zero
The wall, the roof, the doubt, the proof
Equal zero
The door that locks, the mouth talks
Equal zero
The fire, the smoke, the liar, the joke
Equal zero
Garden, flower, rifle, power
Equal zero
Famines and wars, virgins and whores
Equal zero
Sinners and saints, the stain, the taint
Equal zero
The speck, the mote, the rest, the note
Equal zero
The cars, the roads, that slowly corrode
Equal zero
Buildings that fall windows and all
Equal zero
Infinity, you and me
Equal zero
The universe, all of us
Equal zero
Track Name: Come Sleep In My Beard
This is the way
Shine down in the rays
Float over the waves
Sink down in our graves

Drift by in the air
Build nests in our hair
Creep over your skin
Devour the sin

This is The Path
Drown in the bath
Fall through the cracks
Clings onto your back

Make beds our of stones
Make toys of our bones
Crawl into my ears
Come sleep in my beard

Come sleep in my beard
Come sleep in my beard
Come sleep in my beard

Track Name: Autumn Wind
Though the same could be said
For the leaves turning red
You cannot say it about me
I'm just the wind in the trees

Though the same cannot be said
Of the mold on the bread
You could duly compare
The falling leaves with her hair

Many tongues and many voice
Fill their lungs with many choices
But there is only one Path to choose
I hope you brought your walking shoes\
Your walking shoes

Though the same could be said
For every mouth that goes unfed
What you've been told is not news
The young and old both sing the blues
They sing the blues
They sing the blues

Though the same cannot be said
for the calf that has been bled
The leaves are gold as honeydews
The autumn wind sings the blues
It sings the blues
It sings the blues
Track Name: Tie Down The Rainbow
Tie down the rainbow
Tie down the sun

Gather-in the clouds
Gather-in the birds
Tie them in a sack
Sink them with a stone
Every single one

Tie down the starlight
Tie down your dreams
Tie down the moonlight
Tie down your dreams

Gather-in the dark
Gather-in the light
Tie them with a bow
Sink them like a stone
Every single night

Tie down the rainbow
Tie down the sun

Gather-in the clouds
Gather-in the birds
Tie them in a sack
Sink them with a stone
Every single one
Track Name: Ashes + Clay
In the clouds, in the leaves
In the arms, in the sleeves
In the sky and the road
The bear and the toad
In the home and the heart
In the kiss and the dart
In the head and the soul
In the forest and the hole
In the sweet, in the sour
In the wink and the hour
In the sun, in the sea
In the bloom, in the bee
Our dreams are made of ashes and clay

The touch and the sting
In the chain and the ring
In the book and the word
In the hoof and the herd
In the grass and the blade
And the runes we obey
In the boys and the girls
In the spirit and the squirrel
Our dreams are made of ashes and clay

In the spit and the sweat
In the tears of regret
In the oath and the break
In the oak and the lake
In the cry and the yell
In the scream in the well
In the cold and the heat
In the blood of the weak
Our dreams are made of ashes and clay

In the book and the ale
In the wind and the sail
In the wood and the stone
and the flesh and the bone
In the ghost and the child
In the corpse and the smile
In the rake and the men
In the egg and the hen
In the yin and the yang
In the sung and the sang
In the note and the rest
In the north and the west
Our dreams are made of ashes and clay

In the south and the east
The dove and the peace
In the boot and the crack
In the stones in the sack
In the rock and the rule
In the sand and the jewel
In the crab and the claw
In the cooked and the raw
Our dreams are made of ashes and clay
Track Name: Cradle
Moonlight on the rocking waves
A cradle is a children's grave
Secrets we pretend to keep
never buried very deep

It's on your skin
It's in your eyes
An ounce of sin
A pound of lies

Scattered on the virgin snow
Bloody feathers — blow, wind, blow
Scattered like grains of sand
Leaves of grass burning in your hand

It's on your skin
It's in your eyes
An ounce of sin
A pound of lies
Track Name: Unicorn Skin
You can nail down the blue bird's wings
But it will fly away
You can steal the notes it sings
They will lock you in a cage

You can wear the Unicorn's skin
But you'll never fit the horn
Lose yourself in the wilderness
You'll never change where you were born

No one knows where the rainbow goes
But I know where it's been
There's a place where blue birds fly
Oh! The colours I have seen

You can listen to the butterfly speak
In a language you'll never know
Stag your arm with the hummingbird's beak
It will only lay you low

Make a vest of rattlesnake skin
Let mice nest in your beard
Collect your tears in a mason jar
When children call you "weird"

No one knows where the rainbow goes
But I know where it's been
There's a place where blue birds die
Oh! The colours I have seen

Oh! The colours I have seen
Oh! The colours I have seen
