Track Name: Umbrian Brother
Straight from the ground, straight from the tree 

Go back to the forest go back to the sea 

You look so perfect when you're not perfect 

When you're free of the poison that took all the children 



Brother to the birds, Brother to the birds

Diamond waters, waves and whispers 

All these elements are our sacraments 

The dawn chorus swirls around us 

These city buildings will fall to the ground
 


When you tend her garden don't be so selfish 

Wait for the miracle waiting to happen 


Straight from the ground, straight from the sea

Go back to the forest go back to the sea 



Brother to the birds, Brother to the birds 

We sing as one, we share the earth 



If you don't listen I'll preach to the animals
Track Name: Winter's Ending
Winter's ending told you so 

Beauty forming down below 

The willow's weeping a frozen gown 

About time rays shone down 



Always falling Jack and Jill 

Life has dealt the bitter pill 

They said welcome, lies begun 

Keep your promise or hold your tongue 



Barren land will breathe again 

Mother heart conceive again 

Proclaim a new age of men 



The fathers told us long ago 

The stone cold river again would flow 

That you'd take us to a place 

where there's solace where there's grace 



You were hiding in the dark 

You were with us from the start 

You're the first to cry for me 

To sing the healing harmony 

You were singing over us 



Barren land will breathe again 

Mother heart conceive again 

Proclaim a new age of men 



Winter's ending told you so
Track Name: Pillarcloud
Since you arrived here your clothes haven’t left the line
It’s been a dozen years killing time
I don’t know how but we must leave now

Start the car hold on tight
Leave your bags in yesterday

You don’t need safety like they said
There’s places you dreamt of but feared to tread
And it’s been a struggle overall
But we don’t need money only soul
Step outside, an angel should fly

Start the car hold on tight
Leave your bags in yesterday

Hold my hand don’t look back
We may stray
The Pillarcloud will lead the way
Track Name: The Pull of Eden
We saw waterfall coming towards us

Deep springs pulling us in our hope is gone we’ll float with the torrent
If we lose our lives we’ll find them on the shores of Eden
You don’t have to stop it

We saw waterfall coming towards us

Sirens, illusions, keeping me guessing
Heavenly creatures stirring the waters

Deep springs pulling us in our hope is gone we’ll float with the torrent
If we lose our lives we’ll find them on the shores of Eden
You don’t have to stop it

You don’t have to stop it

We saw waterfall, we saw waterfall
Track Name: Evergreens
You were holding lilies was it a dream
We were laughing silly under evergreens

We had nothing but our promises and unfinished songs
We’ll grow and grow on a vine before we taste the new wine
And if we don’t taste anything, we’ll love anyhow

While they were waiting for us we danced unrehearsed
In the cool of the day we were the first

We had nothing but our promises and unfinished songs
We’ll grow and grow on a vine before we taste the new wine
And if we don’t taste anything, we’ll love anyhow

In the raging sun we will toil we’ll never find a place to call home
But where you go I will go, and your God will be my God, oh my God

We had nothing but our promises and unfinished songs
We’ll grow and grow on a vine before we taste the new wine
When you receive your grey crown I'll see you as you're standing now
So beautiful

We’ll go there again.
Track Name: When my name was called
Yeshua Yeshua, all that you offer to me is love

The day we first met I was just a child
far from my homeland floating on the Nile
With a burning coal you touched my lips
and filled me with fire I began to speak

I cringe at some things I said in my youth
before I learnt Grace was the sister of Truth
If the bride goes to war who will be left
to bandage the wounded and bury the dead?

Yeshua, Yeshua all that you offer to me is love

The business man was on my back
I tried to please him but he gave me the sack
Sackcloth and ashes, hammer and stone
Where are your relics and treasures of old?
'Alms for the poor, alms for the poor'
I asked for money, they gave me flour and oil

Yeshua, Yeshua all that you offer to me is love

When my name was called I took the steps
I opened the door my things were there
Come down from the pillar of solitude!

A dozen red roses yet to bloom
A dozen red roses yet to bloom

Yeshua, Yeshua all that you offer to me is love
