Track Name: After the Moon
Like the moon you light the night
At first so close
Then up so high and out of sight
I hear a voice call on the wind
I’ve been there too
And I’ve seen what you’ve seen


Back and forth we pull the tide
In and out as waves collide
A whisper rises from the sea
“I can’t ask you
To wait for me”
Track Name: Fair Witness
I can see it all
I saw you crashing down but didn’t say a word
And like fair witnesses we stood and we observed
Asking how a man becomes eternal
As stones shift beneath your feet

I saw you incomplete
A soul was searching looking for a bed to fill
Our bodies writhing in the fire of our own free will
And in the seventh circle shrikes were heard and no one knew your name

We felt it shake
The tremors of a universe in love
Destroying all its useless flimsy outer crust
We saw it all unfold
And didn’t say word
Just watched as we observed
Fair witness to a birth

I can feel it all
As men and women walk they tread across my back
And as they move I get a sense for all the things we lack
And all the things we gave so freely

I saw you on your knees
Praying for a paradise that will not end
Forever looking for your freedom but it all depends
On who is there and who is looking back

We felt is shake
‘Cause what if all of this could be denied
The world is turning and there’s nowhere left for death to hide
We saw it all unfold
And didn’t say a word
Just watched as we observed
Fair witness to a birth
