Track Name: This Body
my soul, my soul is hidden in this body
this face is not me, these limbs are not me
my soul, my soul just wants to be free
wants to get out and breathe

feeling like leaving this body behind
want to leave this heart and leave this mind
there's too much insanity from here and there
and all I want is to rest somewhere

when my soul is free, anywhere will be home
land, sea, and sky, I may safely roam
my soul, my soul, just wants to be free
wants to get out and breathe

feeling like leaving this body behind
too much weight and burdens aren't kind
there's not enough energy in me
to continue the way that I'm living

if I could burrow deep into this Earth
the dirt, worms, and the roots
would love me I am sure
I am sure
Track Name: Weary
I've been weary for a long time
since the final breath of summer left my throat
I've been weary for a long time
since the air turned cold

I've been weary for a long time
watch the leaves fall, I'm more stuck here than the trees
I've been weary for a long time
since last winter, still longing to be free

And I know, I'll always be, no matter where I go
gonna be free just to be tied to another unknown

I've been growing for a long time
since the very first winter when I was born
I've been working for a long time
and this winter I am still so young

I've been fearful for a short time
getting closer to the future and beyond
I've been fearful for a short time
but I've been weary for so long

and I know, I'll always be, no matter where I go
gonna be free just to be tied to another unknown

or I'll be weary for a long time
I'll be weary till the day I die
Track Name: Show Me The Moon
These nights
are filled with lonely thoughts,
the timid ones,
the untamed ones

these nights
I spend inside my head,
the one place
I hate to be

these nights
remind me that I am
one and
one alone

these nights
remind me of this
lonesome body
of a home

So show me the moon,
give me her presence,
I need to feel her healthy glow.
Show me the moon,
I need her presence,
I need to know I’m not alone

these nights
remind of the dark
and how easily
it deceives me

these nights
remind of me of the ways
I can’t see
past my own nose

these nights
remind me of my dreams
and how
I’ll never reach them

these nights
remind me of a heart
that I hate to be
alone with

So show me the moon,
give me her presence,
I need to feel her healthy glow.
Show me the moon,
I need her presence,
I need to know I’m not alone

There’s no renewal in the night,
we just wait it out through sleep,
we just wait for the light,
to take away the fears we keep,
those fears awaken in the night,
alone in my own head,
those feelings awaken in the night,
alone with my own heart

So show me the moon,
give me her presence,
I need to feel her healthy glow.
Show me the moon,
I need her presence,
I need to know I’m not alone
Track Name: Storyteller
Don’t worry too much on misinformation
don’t boggle your mind deciphering what’s true
the world’s a dirty place with its victors and victims
choose a side and listen

A weaver of words, weaver of words
who cares how true?
let me entertain you
Weaver of words, weaver of words
who cares how true?
let me entertain you

Forget about the bias, at least some is fact
there’s too many opinions to keep info in tact
so don’t think just listen to our news station
I like to bend the truth
I like to bend the truth

A weaver of words, weaver of words
who cares how true?
let me entertain you
Weaver of words, weaver of words
who cares how true?
let me entertain you

this world is too caught up
in its own dirty business
it’s chasing its culprits,
chasing its own tail

A weaver of words, a weaver of words
who cares how true?
let me entertain you
A weaver of words, a weaver of words,
got a story to tell
you can call it a tall tale
