Track Name: Archers of Babylon
Slain by the arrow
in a city full of spark
people dancing on the ark of the covenant
waiting on change in Babylon

Changed by the arrow
peels the flesh away like bark
its not the man who makes the mark but discovers it
making a name in Babylon

in Babalon well it won't take long to dissolve
dividing lines that dent the Earth
save it, just get lucky and over feeling hurt, feeding hurt
with an arrow, an arrow through the heart of Babylon

Saved by the arrow
shot directly through the heart
its not the end nor at the start we uncover it
waking insane in Babylon

in Babalon it won't take long to dissolve
to dissolve dividing lines that dent the Earth
save it, just get lucky and over feeling hurt, fueling hurt
with an arrow, an arrow through the heart of Babylon

[reading Jeremiah 50:29, French]
'Appelez contre Babylone les archers, vous tous qui maniez l'arc! Campez autour d'elle, que personne n'échappe, Rendez-lui selon ses oeuvres, Faites-lui entièrement comme elle a fait! Car elle s'est élevée avec fierté contre l'Éternel, Contre le Saint d'Israël.'

with an arrow, an arrow through the heart
Track Name: Forest Fire
Curled up in a corner, a coyote that can't see
All the forest for the trees
I pine for the timber's alight
Woohoo

Back up against the wall just a wicked tease
Beg on your knees but only if you want to please
I pine for the timber's alight
Woohoo

Smashed up on the curb only a shattered dream will never ease
With the wind just let it be
I pine for the timber's alight
Woohoo
Track Name: Ether Spring
Hands detached from arms, feet walking their own path
there are words reeling off the cuff
linking the chain but its best not to name it at the edge of an ether spring

An island denied of harm where all are slaves to the charm
but a glass ceiling is not enough
linking the chain but its best not to name it at the edge of an ether spring

And it feels like home when we're there, we're there..
Home

Now dance without alarm, the four winds cross the mark
they're up for sealing a brighter spark
linking the chain but its best not to name it at the edge of an ether spring

And it feels like home when we're there, we're there..
Home
Track Name: Into The Dance
When I come out of this weary state
if the roads are closed, I'll stand still and wait
To catch the falling leaves
Smell the dew at dawn
Eat fruit of a tree
See a new child born

But I can't get back home
without a good map in my hand
and I find something is lacking
without giving, there's no space to dance

Those who feast around the banquet table
are breaking bread and sharing tales
of their child born
ate fruit off the tree
loved the smell at dawn
and to catch the falling leaves

But I can't get back home
without a good map in my hand
and I find something is lacking
without giving, there's no space to dance
Track Name: Road Less Traveled
Another old man conversation
under the dripping street canopy
a puff of smoke down another road
a road less traveled

Another young man in isolation
under the flicking street lamp he lays
a puff of smoke down another road
a road less traveled

But there's something in the water
and I'd like to change my order
I think, I hear the bells chime
from bed I rise

A sinner knows how to lose temptation
the siren sings to lead astray
a puff of smoke down another road
that road less traveled

A winner knows how to lose humiliation
and how to keep demons at bay
a puff of smoke down another road
that road less traveled

But there's something in the water
and I'd like to change my order
I think, I hear the bells chime
from bed I rise
